Meet our new "child of fur", Sirius Black Lewis. His big brother hates him, of course, and strives to avoid him at every turn. He's barely weaned and full of energy. God help our household.

Y'all are probably asking yourselves, "Where's the old coot been?" Well, I caved and set up a Facebook account, mainly because my entire family kept telling me to so we could keep closer tabs on each other. See, they were always bringing me into conversations about halfway through, because they started on facebook then moved to emails. Well, no longer.

Problem is, I've become somewhat addicted to some of the games. So between classes and my addiction, sleeping and eating, personal hygiene and tending the dog, not a lot of time is left for blogging. I still read all the blogs I did before, but I don't have much time for personal posting.

I'm not shutting the blog down, just going a long way out of the way to say I won't be posting very often. But you've probably already figured that out. If any of you have a facebook account and wanna be friends, let me know. I'll add ya.

I read this and had to post it for y'all. It's from today's American Minute by Bill Federer:
"O thus be it ever when free men shall stand,

Between their loved home and the war's desolation;

Blest with victory and peace, may the Heaven-rescued land,

Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!

Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just;

And this be our motto IN GOD IS OUR TRUST!

And the Star Spangled Banner in triumph shall wave

Over the land of the free and the home of the brave!"

This 4th verse of the National Anthem inspired Congress, MARCH 3, 1865, to place the motto on the nation's coins.

House Speaker Schuyler Colfax noted:

"The last act of Congress ever signed by President Lincoln was one requiring that the motto...'In God We Trust' should hereafter be inscribed upon all our national coin."

Truman stated October 30, 1949:

"When the U.S. was established...the motto was IN GOD WE TRUST. That is still our motto and we still place our firm trust in God."

JFK stated February 9, 1961:

"The guiding principle of this Nation has been, is now, and ever shall be IN GOD WE TRUST."

Reagan stated March 19, 1981:

"Our Nation's motto...reflects a basic recognition that there is a divine authority in the universe to which this nation owes homage."

We shouldn't have to be reminded of this, should we?
