She Should Run

On a much more pleasant note about being approached, last night I got this comment, from Joey Appley-Epstein:

Hi Janie Belle,
My name is Joey Appley-Epstein, and I’m writing to you on behalf of a project by the Women’s Campaign Forum called “She Should Run.” The goal of the project is to encourage both women and men to nominate inspiring pro-choice women to run for office — in every type of election from school boards to the United States Senate. So far, the project has collected 800 nominations and because of the positive feedback and response, we’ve decided to make a final push to 1,000 total nominations.

For this final push, we have decided to reach out to online communities for their help. The project focuses on the encouragement, empowerment, and election of pro-choice women. As you yourself are pro-choice I thought you might be interested in taking action for this movement. To reach our goal of 1,000, it certainly is going to be a community effort and we would really appreciate your help in discussing this special project before it concludes.

The greatest part of this project is that it’s the real thing, too, and not a superficial exercise by any stretch of the imagination. As the nominations have come in, the WCF has been following up to make sure these women receive the support and resources they need to run. They’re even planning their first training session with women who have been encouraged to run as a direct result of this project.

With that, here are some resources on the project:
1) The She Should Run website: http://www.sheshouldrun.org
2) A video overview of the She Should Run project: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JG55HNFmoNY
3) A great video by Congresswoman/Fellow Mom Debbie Wasserman Schultz on She Should Run, encouragement, and running for office: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rk7NVr2RcIQ

Obviously, this isn’t a one-sided e-mail. As this project is all about participation, please send me any comments or questions that you have, and I’ll be sure to get them answered as soon as possible.

Looking forward to hearing back from you.
– Joey

Thank you so much for bringing this to my attention, Joey. I’ll be passing the word around, and there are several pro-choice women that I think would be outstanding in office. (Elizabeth Wood, I’m looking right at YOU.)

Hello EricHovind

HelloWell, here’s an ominous wake-up call. Usually Kate does a quick check of the blogs and the EMail and stuff over coffee long before I crawl my little butt out of bed (unless of course she needs a little attention).

This morning Kate came across this in my inbox, and thought it was important enough to awaken me.

WordPress Learns

A little notification might go a long way.

Referring to this morning, Barry from WordPress posted this last night:

Tomorrow around 9AM Pacific time we will performing some back-end code changes that may result in a few spots of weirdness for things relating to categories. This includes categorizing posts and links. The maintenance should only take a few minutes but I have allocated a couple hours just in case. Once the maintenance is complete you should see new functionality in your admin area so keep your eyes peeled. I will update this thread once the maintenance is complete.

Just so y’know.

(What the hell do you mean, “we’re out of coffee?”  It’s not even 7 AM, I’m awake, AND THERE’S NO COFFEE?  HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN?????)

Shimmy Me Timbers

Jollyfish by Cayusa @ FlickrRev. Big Dumb Chimp reminds us all:

It’s International talk like a pirate day. Of course, the word “Shimmy” in the title is a nod to Kristine, who says it here.

Just so y’know.

From whence came the art:

That image is titled Jollyfish, by Cayusa.

WordPress = Blogspot?

Geez, seems like the more time that passes the more often WP.com is boogered up.  I came to expect daily crap at Blogspot, and I hope WP isn’t heading down that path.

Free hosting is wonderful, and I understand that there are going to be issues from time to time, but Holy Crap.  The free hosting and awesome software might lessen the blow of the arbitrary moderation/delisting/censorship policies, but if the blog frequently doesn’t operate the way it’s supposed to, that’s sort of antithetical to blogging in the first place, isn’t it?

I assume the images that I currently have on WP.com servers will re-appear at some point in the near future, so bear with me until then.  In the meantime, I’ve been considering finding my own hosting.

Just so y’know.

This (and a little attention from Kate) made it somewhat less painful to be up before God(s, ess, isms, less, or The Disembodied Telic Entity who may or may not be the Not-Very-Intelligent-Designer).

Lori Chalupny Busts Her Cherry

0017 by Gulledge @ Flickr
Lori Chalupny just scored her first World Cup goal, less than one minute into the game against Nigeria. You can catch it on ESPN.

The U.S. is currently dead even with North Korea in our group. They need to win, and win more decisively than North Korea to advance to play England. Should we not do as well as North Korea (currently losing tied with Sweden on ESPN2), we advance to play Germany.

Just so y’know.

(P.S. ESPN is pissin’ me off. They keep putting up graphics that are covering large portions of the screen. I appreciate the info, but they need to keep it small. I want to watch the game, not the graphics!)

From whence came the art:

That photograph of Lori Chalupny (number 17, playing against Canada) is serendipitously titled 0017, by Jason Gulledge.
