  1. what is your other blog? I think you should sign up for that martial art class now. I know you will like it and learn a lot about yourself…you and only you. Number 101 on the list should be that you don’t give yourself enough credit.

  2. Oh, by the way, I’m a die hard republican. See we aren’t all bad;)
