I'm Ready for Winter Now!

Like the ads say, "it isn't winter until the new Warren Miller movie comes out." I know that Fall has barely begun, but now that I've seen this trailer I'm ready for the snow! The new movie is called Children of Winter. Turn up the volume and enjoy this clip!

(Sure wish they would add some venues. There is only one showing on the Central Coast and I have to work that night!)

YES, we can!

Wow, I have to admit I had my doubts this would ever happen, so thanks to all the people who, unlike me, knocked on doors and made phone calls to assure Barack Obama would be elected tonight! We have a lot of hard work ahead, but I am so full of hope tonight - there is so much change that can be accomplished if we can just keep up the momentum and if we can truly work together over the next few years.

Obama sweeps to victory

As happy as I am with the way the election went, I'm very sorry that Proposition 8 (the anti-same-sex marriage amendment) passed. The country demonstrated that race is not as big an issue as it used to be, but there are still too many people willing to discriminate against people who happen to love and want to spend their lives with men and women who are the same gender as they are.

One More Day to Go

Halloween is over and so is Dia de los Muertes and All Saints Day. Daylight Saving Time is also over. We had our first rain of the season and it came down in over an inch. Change is on the way!Obama is ahead in the polls but what about the "Bradley Effect" and any other last-minute poll booth decisions? Now that's scarey!
