Another one of 300...and Whoopie Goldberg

Well, let me try this again. I wrote a big post, then blogger decided it couldn't save it...

Today was another one of our 300 days without sun here in Pittsburgh. Do you know we actually have less sunny days than Seattle? Hard to believe, but apparently statistically true.

Something on The View today made me so sad. The hot topic was gay adoption. Apparently a certain state passed a referendum that gay people cannot adopt children. Whoopie Goldberg told this story that someone told her - that a 12 year old boy, who was considered "unadoptable" because of mental issues, was finally adopted by a gay couple who happened to work with emotionally disabled children. The boy said, "Somebody wants me!" It made me so sad to think of a child who lived his life believing that nobody wanted him...

Also, they had this Manhattan circus on. The Pound Puppies is one of the acts. They adopt puppies from the pound who would have otherwise been euthanized. While I do not attend circuses, because I don't believe animals should be used and abused in that way, it made me think about these puppies who had so much fun performing their act and how much they obviously LOVED their trainer. Another thing that was sad, but in a good way.

There are no bead photos tonight. My wonderful geek partner/photographer is living it up in Atlanta as an invited speaker at a conference (I am very proud of him!) so he didn't get around to taking my bead pics. Also, while I'm on the topic, I want to say hi to Wayne, his host. If you read this, Hi Wayne!

Oh yeah, the kids are sick again! Does it ever END????
