I'm country girl wannabe who got to be in 2007. I started blogging in 2008, at the behest of a friend, to let everyone know how I was adjusting to the move. Country life has been a dream come true, and it has unleashed a pent up art-full side in me. Now I have graduated to 3 blogs-one country, one art-full, one daily. Being of scattered mind and talents, we'll see how it goes....!!!!!! Please drop by often and leave a comment or two!! We bloggers LIVE for comments!!
My country living blog is http://www.ooglebloops.wordpress.com
And, now, we take a moment for this brief commercial break..........
I am, as a rule, pretty apolitical, but today I am pretty pissed off!! This BP/Obama oil fiasco has really got me riled.
What is wrong with this picture?? 54 days into this oil disaster, and Obama's administration will not allow Belgian, Dutch and other foreign vessels with oil skimming abilities who want to come in and clean up the oil to do so - due to an antiquated Jones Act! The act was put aside during Katrina- WHAT IS THE HOLDUP HERE!!!!???? 54 days is more than totally unacceptable!!!!!! If you haven't heard about this on the news, google this Jones Act and express your disgust!!!!
