WhiteHouse.gov & other sources ^ | 7-18-07

Posted on 07/18/2007 5:21:41 PM PDT by silent_jonny

This morning President Bush traveled to Landover, Maryland and toured Man And Machine Inc., a company that makes computer accessories for hospitals, medical laboratories, and industrial environments. Afterwards, the president joined a roundtable discussion of healthcare initiatives and how they should benefit the individual, not the government or insurance companies. (Transcript)

President Bush returned to the White House this afternoon and met with the Import Safety Group. (Transcript)

First Lady Laura Bush took part in the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Awards ceremony in the East Room of the White House. (Transcript)

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice met with senators on Capitol Hill after their “all-nighter”. LOL

And former President George H. W. Bush spoke at the National Constitution Hall in Philadelphia, where he donated his WWII service revolver.

Quote of the Day:

President Bush: I believe government cannot provide affordable health care. I believe it would cause -- it would cause the quality of care to diminish. I believe there would be lines and rationing over time. If Congress continues to insist upon expanding health care … which, by the way, would entail a huge tax increase for the American people -- I'll veto the bill.

Photo of the Day:

Dose Ping!

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.

~Romans 8:28-30

Please Pray for President Bush

Both! I know y’all will appreciate this little tale about our trip. When we got to the airport here there were lots of people with flags and signs to welcome some soldiers here. I talked with some Marines on the plane who were coming here for a few months of munition training. One told me that the Marines were the best but they had to come here for that kind of training. It just did my heart good to see those people. They were so young—18 and 19.

Howdy, there! Love the captions on your photos today, and yes, President Bush should've won the toaster!

Here's the style of keyboard I used for years at my last job. Looks wierd, but it was really, really comfortable. You can adjust the split and the tilt.

Yes. THANK YOU FOR ASKING! I'm still feeding him every two to three hours, just to help his little liver & processing plant ;-)

We took him to see his surgeon today, as he had a hard lump near this "unit." The surgeon explained that he had to cut that muscle during surgery, and it was the stitches and/or possible swelling, not anything bad. Whew!

Again...thanks for asking!!! It has been a major thing around here. His brother Rocky has a little rash on his chest. We think it's stress, as he plays nursemaid throughout the night and tells us if Rex is in distress.

I want a keyboard that does NOT have all those numbers on the left, and all the other keys that only a code writer uses. I learned to touch type and the darned SMALL keys are so close together they throw off my typing. But, NOOOOOO, they don’t make keyboards like that. Oh, and the darned caps lock is hidden by your left hand SO YOU TYPE IN CAPS WHEN YOU DON’T WANT TO.
