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.
