BE AWARE. The FREEDOM OF Internet USE is UNDER SERIOUS FIRE.

If you enjoy the use - open and freely unfettered - of the Internet - then a Bill before the US Congress called SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) - despite the laudatory sounds in the name - MUST BE STOPPED.

PLEASE! Do NOT just look at this and move on. READ IT. EDUCATE YOURSELF. UNDERSTAND. Then TAKE ACTION. SUPPORT - 'Stop SOPA'!

One simple thing to remember: If you enjoy YOUR FREEDOM ... OPPOSE any part of the current effort to pass SOPA.

There are problems in the use and abuse of creative materials - and much more - on the Internet. We are human. We are thus susceptible (some far more willing than others) to error, wrong and abuse. And we NEED to CORRECT the errors.

!!!!! But SOPA is NOT the answer !!!!!

Embed the following YouTube Code (below) for a video that can be run on a STATIC SPLASH PAGE of ANY SITE you own and operate - no matter how large or tiny.

Support the Wednesday 18 JAN 'Blackout In Support of "STOP SOPA".. by turning your site into a statement of support for STOPPING the Insane Stripping of Civil Citizen Freedoms supported in the SOPA wording.

SUPPORT a full STOP on the current actions of the few BigCo's wanting to control the INTERNET.

This is not a 'geek tirade'. This is awareness of a truly troubling venue, established by a few of the powerful commercial companies who want to retain the control - over creative development, ownership and profitability - they usurped along the way, as they built their currently outmoded, unfair, greedy, freedom strangling empires.

Make no mistake, if SOPA is allowed to pass, every user of the Internet - no matter how big or how small - will live to regret NOT taking action to STOP IT.

At 10:23, it is 81 degrees. THIS is the part of summer I loathe.

Dear Credit Card company that calls me from different numbers, my cell phone number is on INDIANA'S Do Not Call List. I've registered a complaint against you with INDIANA'S Attorney General. Do not call again or you'll pay the attorney general $30,000. Yes, it's $10,000 per call in the state with the toughest Do Not Call law in the nation.

Listening to a big dog snore is almost as soporific as listening to a husband snore. Yes, I'm weird. All is right in the world if Maynard's relaxed enough to snore.

Five - or was it 6? - loads of laundry later, I am kaput.

Guests should be home in Indy soon. We had a BALL this weekend. I'm now officially exhausted, but in a good way.

Happy Sabbath!

Maynard is snoring. It's a good morning.

I think I like it over here.
In other news, the Z people are at my house tonight. I love the Z people. And Maynard didn't eat them, although Jelly's pestered them till they finally learned how to be FIRM with her. :)

The neighbors have been on vacation and are now home. Recommence dogs barking at kids and Precious the pit bull. rolling eyes
"Recommence" does have 2 Ms, yes?

THANK YOU, KATE! I'm now completely confused over here, but I refuse to think it's because I'm getting old.
