QUOTE OF THE DAY
President Bush Discusses the Budget and the Emergency Supplemental North Portico
THE PRESIDENT: I want to thank the Republican leadership and the Republican members of Congress for coming down to have a very frank and open discussion about issues facing our country. Yesterday I gave a speech, making it clear that I'll veto a bill that restricts our commanders on the ground in Iraq, a bill that doesn't fund our troops, a bill that's got too much spending on it. I made that clear to the members.
We stand united in saying loud and clear that when we've got a troop in harm's way, we expect that troop to be fully funded; and we've got commanders making tough decisions on the ground, we expect there to be no strings on our commanders; and that we expect the Congress to be wise about how they spend the people's money.

A bit better or should I say a bit more comfortable will post update after all clear - many thanks for asking
Thank you snugs for posting the dose tonight.
President George W. Bush speaks to the press on the North Portico of the White House in Washington, DC. Bush on Thursday renewed his threat to veto legislation funding the war in Iraq but calling for a pullout of US troops by next year.
Oh, the President's facial expressions are just priceless there!
Oh, goody, I can get to jam the point of my mouse arrow up Pelosie's nose again. So satisfying.
Nancy's got her pop-beads on at the dinner!! She looks like she's going to a funeral in that plain black dress! If she wanted to wear a black dress it should have been at least one that had more of a 'dinner party' look!
No problem - sorry it is late but I went out for a meal with my boss this evening and by the time I got home got organised for tomorrow and started preparing the dose I could not believe where the time had gone to to. I had also to make a few phone calls to update people on dad.
I know when I saw them I thought I must post those people will enjoy them LOL
***How's your Dad?***
I'm pondering how to answer this, Sissyjane. I'm sure you meant it for Snugs. But, my own wonderful, wonderful Dad is in the loving arms of his Savior. Thanks for asking..
Pres looks adorable. I can't say the same for Gates...
Remember when I told you yesterday that I hve a new grandson? As soon as it is clear I will post his picture

There is still some arguing amongst the various medical teams as to which problem to deal with first the stomach or the broken limbs. At present medical is winning as the anesthetist does not want to put him under until the stomach is much flatter and therefore more room in the chest cavity for breathing.
He is back on food so unlikely he will be operated on tomorrow. So I suspect they want to get his bowels working with normal food and drink etc over the weekend to probably think of operating on Monday. I think we will know more when the surgical team visits him today(tomorrow) which could mean another night visit as the doctors were constantly visiting him during the night yesterday.
I am LMAO.....you have learned well grasshopper....lol
see what you started...lol....
RE: Congressional Gold Medal
One idiot news "reporter" tonight said that all these airmen received the Congressional Medal of Honor [which is actually awarded by the President] today. Anyone reporting on the doings of our national politicians who does not know the difference probably reports a whole lot of other news wrongly on a daily basis.
Beautiful photos, snugs
The Childrens Miracle Network is an International fundraising effort for childrens hospitals, generally one in every city. The fundraising activities go on all year and culminate in a huge telethon on a Sunday in June. Each hospital does local programming during the day, asking for funds, and network hosts broadcast to all the local stations at intervals.
These children have probably been on TV in their own cities talking about their particular challenges with disease or defect or injury.
LOL! What have I started??
