Join us in standing up for reproductive health and education. Planned Parenthood, the organization that delivers reproductive health care, sex education and information to millions of people worldwide, has come under fire in the U.S. lately, with many politicians on both state and federal level seeking to end funding (and in a few cases succeeding).
During the month of May, you can send a specially designed Planned Parenthood vgift to your friends to help support this cause. (And if you need someone to send it to, frank is always happy to receive gifts!) There are three variations ($1, $5 and $10) for you to choose from, but they'd all look good on your profile when your friends know that you stand by something so important.
Thank you all for your help in our support for Planned Parenthood. This promotion ends June 1, 2012; LiveJournal is not affiliated with Parent Parenthood. For more information about Planned Parenthood, please visit: http://www.plannedparenthood.org/

I am not good at keeping to a writing schedule. Which means I have the utmost respect for those who do and make a living doing that. So I am going to try something new. We will see how that goes and just in an attempt to reduce my guilt I am not saying what that new thing is until I actually have it up and working.
First a long overdue update: I successfully completed the Army 10-miler and dropped 5 minutes from my time last year. Since I am slow I am not telling what my time was just the improvement :) Hooray! Must keep training for next year.
Second I got this quote from a comment posted on the FFF group. It has such meaning so I thought I would share it here.
A child who can love the oddities of a fantasy book cannot possibly be xenophobic as an adult. What is a different color, a different culture, a different tongue for a child who has already mastered Elvish, respected Puddleglums, or fallen under the spell of dark-skinned Ged? --Jane Yolen in Touch Magic
Third a truly random thought/question of the day: What/where is the dividing line between Eastern and Western? At first I tried continents but Europe (to me) has both. Any comments/opinions?
Till next time :)
