100Actions.com, a Project of the Democratic Party

I just found this page on Senator O'Bama's wepage. It's called 100Actions.com, a Project of the Democratic Party - actions you can take to help elect Democrats in November!

Gay Marriage victory!

Good news on the gay marriage front! Gay couples from Rhode Island can now marry in Massachusetts!

Deval Patrick for Governor!


I am so excited that Deval Patrick won the democratic primary. Now we just need to elect him in November!

Among his stands, on disability rights he pledged to: Assure Community-Based Long Term Care, Expand Access to Personal Care Attendants, Eliminate the Achievement Gap, Ensure Access to Job Opportunities, Expand Eligibility to Health Insurance, Develop Affordable Housing Options, AND - ENFORCE THE ADA! :-)

And while it is hard to find on his website, he is a strong supporter of gay rights. Deval Patrick for governer!

today

I couldn't think of a better title for this post...every "today" is so glorious with my son. I feel guilty that I don't stitch for him more, read to him more, read more for myself, cook...the list goes on and on....but Evan is a happy little boy and what more could I ask for? :-)

Hoping everyone is well and that your loved ones are well. - Amy

Current Reading: Plan B: Further Thoughts on Faith by Anne Lammott (my *favorite* author!) (I need to go back and reread "Operating Instructions: a journal of my son's first year", now that I have a son. ;-)

Current Listening: Welcoming Children into the World by Sound & Spirit (if anyone has good websites for multicultural music books toys and posters, please feel free to drop me a note to tell me about it! My son's collection of toys and books and music is *very* Christian/white/straight so far..... ;-)

Current Stitching: Noah's Ark by Teresa Wentzler (Oh what a LIE! I haven't put in a STITCH since Evan was born! :-/ But I did pull out my next batch of threads for the next 3 squares of the border! ;-)

Brangelina won't marry until all couples can - Celebrity News - MSNBC.com

I just read this article, Brangelina won't marry until all couples can - Celebrity News - MSNBC.com. I have to admit, I couldn't have done it, I wanted to get married too much. But I applaud couples who refuse to marry until everyone can - can you imagine if everyone did this? The religous right would have a *fit* at all the unmarried parents, people living in "sin", etc.! LOL! I think it is a reasonable statement to say I won't marry 'til everyone can. Good for them.
