It's hard to blog again, and i believe that this time the issue is busy-ness. At all times, I am aware of several duties/errands/demands that I could/should tend to, and since blogging is for my benefit and pleasure, it tends to be pushed aside for "later". Besides, the days are eaten up with multiple activities, nothing very interesting or blog-worthy.

Or they are very blog-worthy but I forget to take pictures, such as our very nice visit from Laura and Nik this week. Nik taught us speed-Scrabble, which rapidly ratcheted up the list of very fun and fast games we enjoy, even competing for top position with penny dominoes. No pictures. Maybe Laura will have pity and share some on her blog soon.

Now I need to stop this fun activity to be responsible yet again.

Excellent Quote

"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it." ~~~~ Dr. Adrian Rogers, 1931
