The Ark

Whatever floats your boat...

My friend, Debra is here!

I'm so excited to welcome my friend, Debra Antoniak (also the name of her channel)!

Back in November I did a post on the evils of immigration and referenced a friend whose husband had recently been deported to Poland because INS didn't believe they were a legitimate couple. Her life has been very difficult ever since.

I hope she finds the Ark to be a bright spot, and I hope you'll hop over to her page to welcome her!

Wow...

So it's Christmas day.



My parents are here. We were talking about my video habit, since my son got a new video camera and I was thinking I might have to go out and get one too because it is so cool.



Anyway, my father is a retired Lutheran minister...my mother a homemaker.



We logged into LV to watch a few of my Christmas vids from last year when David and I were in England.



And right on THE FRONT PAGE, the INITIAL SCREEN YOU SEE WHEN YOU LOG IN in the… Continue

Ok...I give up...

I have been FORCED to download Skype as a means to keep in touch with folks I no longer see here. Even my MOTHER is on Skype...sheesh. So I guess I'd better get with the program. My Skype is Justanotherusername1. What's yours?

Immigration Update....

David has received his 10-year green card! It took just over three years. Obviously we're thrilled. It's like this enormous weight has been lifted off our shoulders.



My friend, Debra, married a Polish guy a couple years ago. She's 14 years older than him but there's no doubt in my mind that they're a "real" couple. He's lovingly taken on her two children; one of them has severe autism. Unfortunately, Immigration didn't believe them and he was deported to Poland last week. The… Continue

Don't be so sad!!!!

So LV is gone. We knew it was coming. We discussed it. We prepared for it.



Syd created it and we joined it :-)



Geez, folks...I mean, it's not like someone died, right? We have this place and a number of others where our friends are!! Let's keep this in perspective--it's not an earthquake, hurricane, tsunami or terrorist attack.



It's a different link we click now.



I know, I know....LV was important. It served a purpose. It was a community. We were part… Continue

A New Day!

I voted first thing yesterday morning. I always vote. The first thing I did when I moved to California was register to vote. I love jury duty, too. I'm weird that way :-)



After I voted, as I was walking to my car, for the first time I felt that I had accomplished something in that booth. I felt like I was voting for something that really mattered.



And last night, as David and Zach and I were watching the news, it was just so very exciting! Watching my 13-year old son get… Continue
