Hey Steve, did you take that picture really? Wow. Hey, take care big guy and take it easy over the weekend.

Them Capitol hill cops be ganging up over my congresslady. Tell them to man up and be tough about it. She would'nt harm a fly but she made a mistake by trying to play the race card. Big mistake.

Hey, I did not mean to have a mini blog but you started the FIRE, I guess. PEACE.

BJ-
What's up bro! Yes, I was watching something on CNN concerning Congresswoman, Cynthia Mckinney. I met her once when I was a student in Georgia. She came by our campus at Savannah State and I had a chance to speak with her briefly at the radio station. She is a woman who fights for those who lack voice. I don't really think that she is doing this because of the checkpoint misunderstanding. She is doing this to bring attention to a bigger problem. She is just exposing this society that we live in and it's discrimination against women and minorities.

Yes, I took this picture. I practice as often as I can. Thanks! Have a great weekend! :)

I know. I'm sorry! I should be punished. I deserve it. :) Thanks! As far as photography is concerned I aim and shoot. :)Maybe farmgal can give you some actual techniques. My weekend went well and the sun did come out today, but it rained all day Saturday.

Thanks. I haven't hung out in G-town in a while. I work close by though.

a cup of tea sounds nice. I've been "englished" as well by my wife. Now, I can't have my tea without cream. :)
I've never read that book. I'll have to look it up on amazon. Thanks.
