✽ "The problem with God is that God is so good at what God does that we take God for granted." ~ Mark Batterson

Biden -- a real class act! ~ link

✽ "I'm mad at everyone. No, not you. Not anyone in particular, actually. I'm angry at the idea of 'everyone' and what they want and what they say..." ~ Seth Godin
