Just came in from two hours of digging out the hell strip in front of the house. Three months of baking in the hot sun has not improved the crappy black clay soil. It's like digging through concrete.

Michael Moore just tweeted that he's at the Occupy Wall Street protest right now. Maybe somebody from a network will turn on a camera? Probably not...

Wouldn't hold my breath, but you never know...maybe it's finally passing into the realm of "can't be ignored."

Great I plan to take this class even though I am not the best at following written direction, I hope to follow the visual enough to learn this technique.

Does anyone else think that Rick Perry is looking more and more like the Fred Thompson of the 2012 race?

Thank you -- downloaded & installed. I've been waiting for this -- not so much for showing all the streams in one place but allowing me to post a single status that propagates to all the others. Now if they'll just update the Google toolbar to allow me to share a link directly to G+
