While my husband's favorite cereal is getting harder & harder for me to find at the grocery store, I was almost tempted to buy this.. then I looked at all the frightening chemical-laden ingredients - so it was a pass

On a whim, I picked up some shiny foil heart decals in the grocery store, I wanted to affix them to nametags for a course one of my bosses will be having on Valentine's day. As I load up groceries, I realize that I forgot to put the stickers on the check out counter, so in essence, I had them without paying for them.
So I go back inside the store with said foily hearts & my receipt - to find that it would take me at least 15 minutes to get thru the shortest line.. & of course I couldn't remember where exactly I found them so I put them with some valentine candle display- Doh! So I don't know if it would have been worse to keep them without paying, or to just put them in any old spot like I did.

On a sillier note, I am a proud new owner of a brand spankin new Magna Doodle so I can practice kanji writing without going thru reams of paper.

Leigh & I are watching an interesting documentary on PBS about Bonhoeffer, a German theologian who was opposed to Nazism. The documentary mentions the role of the Christian Church & their support of Hitler. One of the historians in the documentary mentioned an interesting activity she had teachers do as she prepared them for teaching Diary of Anne Frank to their students. She passed out cards with names of people who were all part of the chain of events leading to the death of Anne - i.e. The person who told the guards were the family was, Member of the SS, Adolf Hitler, ..etc Then the teachers were supposed to line up in order of 'responsibility'.
The person who received the card that read The preacher who taught hatred and anti sematism in the pulpit took their place in the front of the line and maintained that they belonged there, even before Adolf Hitler - because they used their position of influence from the Church.

It made me think of some of the many cringe worthy messages I hear today that come from people in positions of religious authority. They quite frankly, should know better.. It also makes me think that in a positive way we can be complicit in creating a better world, can't we? Even if it is as simple as a friendly hello or a smile, I think it's beyond measure.

I always try to play luck at getting files from our fanfriends at youyou board - then Doh! To soon realize it's Dir En Grey, ^^;; Popjam "yokan"
