Bolton STILL Not Confirmed
Although the vote was 54-yay to 38 Nay for cloture, it seems the Dems still want to talk about it.

In other words, it's a filibuster.

I can only assume that those 38 senators do NOT want to clean up the UN. Makes me wonder what Kofi Annan has on them.

I note both of my Delaware senators voted NAY.

Missing Boy Scout
A boy scout, Brennan Hawkins, has gone missing during a recent boy scout event in Utah.

Information is sketchy but there's concern in that another boy scout went missing only fifteen miles from this site. This missing child has not yet been found.

Brennan attended a boy scout event that included 1500 participants. Brennan's father is a leader of the older group of scouts and this event was evidently aimed at the older scouts. Brennan's dad bought his son along as well as a friend of Brennan's.

Brennan's friend left him by the climbing wall. Brennan has not been seen since.

The good news is that the nights have been mild in Utah should Brennan be lost. Also Brennan has had some survival training.

The bad news is that he hasn't been found yet. There's also concern over the eeriness of the other child that went missing in that same area.

Concern over a serial predator, perhaps killer.

Latest Aruba News-Just When You Thought It Couldn't Get More Bizarre

Seems Aruban investigators are annoyed with Natalee Holloway's parents. Because they assert that Natalee's PARENTS should be given a lie detector test.

I'm thinking there was a nasty confrontation with the father of Joran Van Der Sloot-the prime suspect in Natalee's disappearance, and Natalee's Mom and Step-Dad.

Because I saw Natalee's step dad on Fox yesterday. He called Joran's father a "sleezeball".

Then we hear that somebody in that fortress of a rinky-dink police department thinks Natalee's parents should have to take a lie detector test; that THEY might somehow be responsible for the disappearance of their daughter.

I'm sticking with my belief that this whole thing is an attempt at bribery and cover up , refer to my theory on this HERE.


A Guest Writer steps in here. The subject is something about which I know little.

Except for her book, which is about my family.

My cousin, Joan, did extensive research on her wonderful book.

Here she tells you how to do the same research and discover your family's past.

It's a show featuring only dancing and who would've thunk?

Because the show is railroading all the other shows in its timeslot.

Here's a review of "Dancing with the Stars" and some nice comments on Evander Holyfield's dancing.

A Grandmother Blogger makes history.

For Baltimore's Afro-American newspaper interviewed me this past weekend.
