Thank you for the invite. I've collected since I was a little girl and I am 55 years old now so it's a huge, rather unorganized collection.

I'm in an interracial marriage.  The arguments that used to be used against my marriage are the same they use against gays today.  

It's against God's will. It's unnatural. It will destroy the traditional definition of marriage.  

It's only due to the 1967 Loving v. Virginia Supreme court case that I can be married to the one I love today.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loving_v._Virginia

Marriage is one of the "basic civil rights of man," fundamental to our very existence and survival.... To deny this fundamental freedom on so unsupportable a basis as the racial classifications embodied in these statutes, classifications so directly subversive of the principle of equality at the heart of the Fourteenth Amendment, is surely to deprive all the State's citizens of liberty without due process of law. The Fourteenth Amendment requires that the freedom of choice to marry not be restricted by invidious racial discrimination. Under our Constitution, the freedom to marry, or not marry, a person of another race resides with the individual and cannot be infringed by the State.

I look forward to the day that the bigotry ends.  I just hope it comes faster than waiting for the bigots to die off.

I do wish I had enough "klout" to get this young man trending! Sadly, I'm just a 50 something woman/mom in Windsor with a few followers. I do hope the few enjoy him though!

It'll be nice when heroes no longer have to wait until their obituaries to come out of the closet. #SallyRide —@stevesilberman

Sally Ride, who died today after a 17-month battle with pancreatic cancer, was the first U.S. astronaut in space, became friends with Tam O'Shaugnessy at the age of 12. It was not until today, however — nearly 50 years after meeting — that their 27-year romantic relationship was made public.

That makes me want to cry. If only she could have been out then. So much to be proud of. And what of her partner now? No government benefits? No recognition?

Essex county/Windsor folks. Country fan or not, a local boy is going big time! CMT Canada has a contest, "Big in a Small Town." (Link below.) A young man from Harrow, Michael Ure is in the top 30 and will be on air on August 30th. Lets hope he's made it to the top 15! That part is still a secret.

Orville died as the result of a tragic accident. His owner had high hopes for Orville, now being fulfilled postmortem.

Story
Introduction
Interested in almost anything and always looking to learn. From science to stamp collecting, you've got my interest! It's a vast, wonderful and diverse world out there and I'm a tiny part of it wanting to learn all about the other tiny parts! (Oh, I collect stamps, that's one of the really exciting things about me!) I also still have my Apollo 11 scrap book. It consists of cut out newspaper clippings glued on lined paper. 
Bragging rights
Well, I've been in the same room as the Queen of England, I've had lunch with a Prime Minister, told the same Prime Minister's ex wife that I was in love with her ex husband. Had a long chat with Judy Collins prior to one of her shows, just me, she and a friend in the room. Ha, not really bragging rights just hanging on the coat tails of the famous; never mind, move along, nothing to read here.
