He said it!

Thomas Jefferson

3rd President, Democrat

Term of Office: January 20, 1777 to January 20, 1781

  • A government big enough to give you everything you want,
    is strong enough to take everything you have.

  • All, too, will bear in mind this sacred principle, that though the will of the majority is in all cases to prevail, that will to be rightful must be reasonable; that the minority possess their equal rights, which equal law must protect, and to violate would be oppression.

  • Educate and inform the whole mass of the people... They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.

  • Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves are its only safe depositories.

  • Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.

Christmas Wish List

As sad as it is for me to say. Christmas is just right around the corner (Didn't we JUST start SUMMER?!) and if you planned on getting me a gift this year, which you ALL should be, then here's a little help in picking out that special gift for yours truly!

I've decided to shop from the Harriet Carter magazine. If you're not all acquainted with it, you soon will be! If you're looking for something special and unique, odds are Harriet will have it!

So here they are in no particular order:

The creepy, sleeping puppy
It's life-like in that it "breathes" while it's sleeping.
I'll take a Chocolate Lab please!

The Fanny Bank....
cause that's pretty much where we're all taking it these days.

The Giant FUN Box!
Who couldn't use a LOT more fun in their lives?

The Toni Tote
I've got nothing....except that Barbie would be jealous!

Personalized Flask
Just so you know, the initials are DG
And I had BETTER find one of these under the tree this year!

Funny, I'm usually asked to train new hires.

The Desk Buddy
Cause everyone deserves to have at least ONE
buddy where they work. Even if it looks like
he/she's sitting on the crapper.

I think you all know why I chose this one

Waistband Extenders
If you could get me these BEFORE the holidays start, that would be greaaaaaat!

Waterproof Pants
Cause I am getting on in years....

Closet Hanger Safe
Just the place to stash my oodles of cash I've got just lying around the house! Oh wait! If I get this, then everyone will know where my money is!

Headache Soother
Not sure how balm from a badger can help a headache,
but since I get some doozies, I'm willing to try it!

Sleep Balm
Same thing...not sure how it works,
but if it can help me get a better night's sleep, I'm all for it!

Now THIS is a neat idea!

There are tons more that I could (and may) post on here, but for's time to count sheep!
