Out Of Rythum

    Tomorrow is Halloween and although I am not that big on ghosts, goblins and spirits, I still love Halloween. I am usually the first one up for the excitement of getting together with friends dressed in costume or handing out candy to the little tric or treaters. I also look forward to the opportunity to celebrate fall by visiting a pumpkin patch and carving a Jac- O'lantern or going on a hay ride.

     With all that is going on with Mandy right now,  I just don't feel that excited about celebrating, we did not even finish the Miss Understood costume. Maybe I will just join the festivities here in J land tomorrow night instead.

      Mandy is not the only thing that's effecting the rhythm of my life right now, I can't tell you how sad I feel about the upcoming election on Tuesday. 

     I am having a real problem understanding the "Vote for the lesser of the two evils" concept. How many of us will be casting a vote for someone we dislike or disagree with on Tuesday only because we dislike the other guy more or because we feel that as bad as things are and as much as we disagree with the way things are, status quo is safer? I hate that and can't wait for this to be over.

     Whether we consider ourselves liberal or conservative or somewhere in-between we all know the difference between right and wrong and if asked our opinion on the important issues facing our country we would all probably come close to agreeing about most things, so why does big business get so much of the say?

     A few of the important issues:

* Peace * Education * Discrimination Against Race, Creed, Age, Gender Or Sexual Preference * Human Needs Here At Home * The War on Terror * Tax Reform * Conservation * Balancing The Budget * Creating More Jobs * Appointing Impartial Supreme Court Judges * Health Care * Social Security * Prescriptions For The Elderly * Agriculture * Civil Union * Scientific Research * Increasing Minimum Wage * Luxury Taxes * Corporate Crime* Weapon Control * Poverty * Etc ... Etc ... Etc ...

     On another note, I am also a little upset about a problem I am having with my photosite. It is an outside source I have been using for months because of some incompatibility problems between Windows XP and AOL's Hometown Software.

     The photosite is great, it's easy to use and for a couple of bucks a year, I no longer had to stress myself out trying to overcome the incompatibility issues but ... since Tuesday, I have not been able to access my photosite and that's not good.

     I depend on the site every day to post the photos in Dancing in the Rain. They have been quick to answer each and every E-mail I have sent in the past 5 day's but so far have not come up with any answers or hope that the problem is going to be rectified. As soon as I finish this entry I'm going to E-mail again asking them to recommend another service I can use until the problem is rectified. If any of you use Windows XP and post photos on AOL-Journals, your advice would be appreciated. BTW, I have already tried loading JAVA software.

Well, I am sure you will have a great time so wishing you a Happy Halloween. I run Windows XP and so far.....have had not problems with AOL and photos.  I cannot comment on your election.  I know what we think over here but I do not wish to offend anyone on journals so I will keep that to myself.

Wow, I'm having issues with loading photos on this computer -- never thought it could be XP.  I just did the java thing...still seems touchy.  I'll keep researching.  Let me know if you find out something too.

About the election - UGH!  Yes, I'll be voting AGAINST someone.  Not necessarily for the best candidate.  I agree that all the important issues are in your entry.  The whole thing weighs heavy on my heart.  Everyone (including myself) needs to wake up!

Go with the flow of your body's natural rhythms darling.  That's the best thing you can do for yourself - and your spirit.  One breath at a time. :) xo

When I upgraded last week to XP, I could no longer upload photos through hometown either!  I use photobucket now, it is actually much easier than hometown, and I won't worry about AOL anymore!  More often than not, I'd have problems even with the old system!

I have no trouble with pictures thru hometown and I have XP. I do not use the hometown link on journal page I use the add images.

Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.  Matthew 10:34
For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another, men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. Romans 1: 26 & 27
Just a few words from  God on a couple of the election issues...........Stormie
