The GUILD 9-30-2001 Slow Down Sunday

The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left. Ecclesiastes 10:2

In light of the Daffodil Principle where individual efforts over time add up to a mammoth contribution, we are looking at ways to use this lesson as we seek to promote conservatism, the Republican Party and the administration of George Bush.

We are currently involved in a letter-writing campaign - Project Daffodil-Letters. Some of us have been involved in the Klamath Falls Petition, and the People First petition to defund the Endangered Species Act. For more information about these projects and future projects, please visit the link above (Click on the picture above.)

This picture really gives you a sense of the enormity and size of the undertaking in NYC:

DNC Chairman Terry McAuliffe and Senator Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., listen to former President Bill Clinton speaking at the Congressional Black Caucus 2001 Annual Legislative Conference in Washington Saturday, Sept. 29, 2001. The former president received the Congressional Black Caucus Chair's Award. Photo by Hillery Smith Garrison (AP)

All this while his Presidential Library team goes about preparing to take down the monument to slavery on the grounds. Whataguy.

Start your GUILDin' day with a l'il heartwarmer!

Story about a future Guildette in the making! Link. Please note: she has a genuine sense of caring and concern; she makes something happen unstead of sitting on her little fanny and whining about the sad state of affairs; she has a good grasp on what matters vs. what doesn't; all her clothes and accessories match; she has a mind of her own and she uses it! Link to Toothless Grin.

Ah! The illustration! Not on the website. Here it is --

Usually we only see these pictures from a news report. These up close pics with people there really show the enormity of the attack. Thanks annie.

Wow. The first Black President sure has that group fooled. If a Republican was bulldozing this, it would have made headlines.

What would be interesting is seeing is a side-by-side of her listening to x42 and our President. Look at that expression compaired to the bored, ho-hum attitude during the speach to both houses.

Faux pearls, no doubt. Mustn't upset the oysters! (But wiping out 6,000 U.S. citizens is okay; at least, we cannot retaliate, because naturally "Terrorists are people too.")

Thanks WIMom! The illustration was based on a photo of my nieces. I was really pleased with that! If you want to see it to compare, let me know?! I need to scale it down anyway. It's a huge file and takes up megaspace on my website! (I wrote the story, in case anyone didn't make the connection. It's one of my published doo-dads. In a few really nice books too; the illustration is from the most recent -- a "coffee table" Christmas compilation.)

CC Some how, a list of names is given to someone and a list is created. I don't know who or how to start it though. This is the first time a ever saw all those lists. So, it can be done, but I don't know where to start. SLJP I'm starting a search for some photos.

Thank you, pubmom! She was a little sweetheart. I don't know what caused me to watch her; she was just so -- bubbly and full of life. Adorable!! Especially during the Christmas season! Then she went and did that! It was -- oh gosh, I can't even decribe it. The whole store was fixated on her. I imagine she'll be cropping up in the news here as soon as she's able to make her voice heard! Just a feeling! ;-}

I got stuck while doing a Google search. Browser stalled, then Windows stalled. . . . I need a new 'puter!! Supposed to get one for Christmas. We got a new PC about six months ago; time for a new lapper!

Did anyone else just watch Prez Bush and Laura come home from Camp David? They had their dogs, and I think I saw a Basset Hound?! They definitely had their cutie Springer spaniel with them.

Former President Clinton urged loyal black supporters Saturday to support President Bush's efforts in the aftermath of the nation's deadly terrorist attacks. ``We're all better when we work together,'' he said. The 15-minute address came after Clinton received the Congressional Black Caucus Chair's Award for his efforts for minorities during his eight years as president.

In an effusive introduction, Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson of Texas, the chair of the 38-member, all-Democratic caucus, said of Clinton, ``He took on so many initiatives he made us think for a while we had elected the first black president.'' Later, she said as Clinton took the podium, ``I present to you THE president of our time ....''

Clinton has spoken to the black caucus every year since his 1992 election. Bush, who has not enjoyed widespread support from blacks, was not invited.

But Clinton, who has long enjoyed the support of the minority community, used his remarks to promote national unity. ``We have come a long way from the time when people in our country thought it was all right to kill the innocent,'' the former president said to wide applause. ``Surely we can all stand hand in hand together and say it is not right for anyone ever to kill the innocent[apart from unborn children, eh, Bubba?] and we as Americans, black, white, brown, from every country, from every place, we will stand together.'' .....

Depend on old Waylon to tell it like it is!

Many times in the bayous of South Louisiana I've watched the bald eagles hunt for food.
When they're flying, everything else is hiding.
Kind of reminds me of the situation in Afghanistan.

Excuse me, but he better be talking about Rwanda and Afghanistan and NOT THE UNITED STATES, because we do NOT THINK IT'S RIGHT TO KILL INNOCENTS!!!!!

This is so sickening I can't think of anything good that Clinton has done for Blacks or America . Maybe I've been blinded by my dislike of him so much that I can't see all of his good. I guess I've become a double minority. Black and thankful to God that he's restored my faith in President Bush.

Wimom thanks for those pics of Hillary. That's the first thing I thought of last night when I saw that picture. How could she be so attentive to her partner in crime and seemed to not care one bit about Bush's speech.

"and a little child shall lead them", we can get so caught up in ourselves that we forget that others are needing us to care. Thanks for that reminder SLJP.

And Snow Bunny just a little thank you for caring this morning.

Thank you swheats! I'm really glad you liked the story! I don't know; you wouldn't necessarily be in the double-minority here; Bob (my fiance) and I have plenty of friends of all ethnic backgrounds, and none of them like Clintoon! Robert, Bob's best friend ever since he was 15 years old (they're both 50 now) and the bass player and band leader of all the bands they're in (three! *G*), gets absolutely sickened by Clintoon and Jesse Jackson. He says, of Jesse Jackson, "that man does not speak for me!" And Clintoon? "The first black president of the United States, my a**!" (His words, not mine!!) *VBG*

This site needs updating something terrible, but in case anyone is interested, this is Bob (he's assistant band leader) and Robert's main money-making band --
Click on Chameleon to read about them and hear them! (Click into their "music" page to listen!) (I didn't create the site, so the apostrophe boo-boo isn't mine! I told Mar that it's incorrect a couple of years ago, and she hasn't changed it. I think she thinks I'm fried in the head; she may be right! *G*)

Anyway, you've got plenty of support from the black community here, swheats. Robert's sentiments are echoed by nearly everyone I know! ;-}

UH oh!! I'll hold my tongue about Peyton Manning! *G* (I am not a U of TN fan!! And since my mom is from Mississippi, I grew up with "Archie, Archie, Archie," and now it's "Peyton, Peyton, Peyton!" Aaaarrgghhhhh!!)

I meant to watch the Titans today, but I couldn't find them. Then a friend of Bob's called and let him know that a friend of theirs had died. He was the drummer for one of the first bands they were all in. It's been rather subdued here since then. ;-{

Anyhoo -- you are very welcome! I'm glad you liked it. I didn't want anyone to think I'm full of hot air; I mean, people can get online and say, "yeah, I'm a professional freelance writer, and I'm so-and-so and this-and-that," so I figured I'd post an article for my own peace of mind! ;-}

Thank you so much for letting me know you liked it!!

LOL! I just thought of something you might not have heard about yet - right up your ally, I think, since it's all about words, etc. Check out the Word for the Day threads. They're challenging, and I think they're daily, too! I've "visited" it a few times, but never got that involved - I'm not too much a "word" person - I'm more a "picture" person!
