Robin Williams THE PLAN


The Plan!




Robin Williams, wearing a shirt that says 'I love New York ' in Arabic
at his speech in New York.
You gotta love Robin Williams........Even if he's nuts! Leave it to Robin Williams to come up with the perfect plan. What we need now is for our UN Ambassador to stand up and repeat this message.


Robin Williams' plan...(Hard to argue with this logic!)


'I see a lot of people yelling for peace but I have not heard of a plan for peace. So, here's one plan.'


1) 'The US, UK , CANADA and AUSTRALIA will apologize to the world for our 'interference' in their affairs, past & present. You know, Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Tojo, Noriega, Milosevic, Hussein, and the rest of those 'good 'ole' boys', we will never 'interfere' again.

2) We will withdraw our troops from all over the world, starting with Germany , South Korea , the Middle East , and the Philippines . They don't want us there. We would station troops at our borders. No one allowed sneaking through holes in the fence.

3) All illegal aliens have 90 days to get their affairs together and leave. We'll give them a free trip home. After 90 days the remainder will be gathered up and deported immediately, regardless of whom or where they are from. They're illegal!!! France will welcome them.


4) All future visitors will be thoroughly checked and limited to 90 days unless given a special permit!!!! No one from a terrorist nation will be allowed in. If you don't like it there, change it yourself and don't hide here. Asylum would never be available to anyone. We don't need any more cab drivers or 7-11 cashiers.


5) No foreign 'students' over age 21. The older ones are the bombers. If they don't attend classes, they get a 'D' and it's back home baby.


6) The US, UK , CANADA and AUSTRALIA will make a strong effort to become self-sufficient energy wise. This will include developing nonpolluting sources of energy but will require a temporary drilling of oil in the Alaskan wilderness. The caribou will have to cope for a while.


7) Offer Saudi Arabia and other oil producing countries $10 a barrel for their oil. If they don't like it, we go someplace else. They can go somewhere else to sell their production. (About a week of the wells filling up the storage sites would be enough.)


8) If there is a famine or other natural catastrophe in the world, we will not 'interfere.' They can pray to Allah or whomever, for seeds, rain, cement or whatever they need. Besides most of what we give them is stolen or given to the army. The people who need it most get very little, if anything.


9) Ship the UN Headquarters to an isolated island someplace. We don't need the spies and fair weather friends here. Besides, the building would make a good homeless shelter or lockup for illegal aliens.


10) All Americans must go to charm and beauty school. That way, no one can call us 'Ugly Americans' any longer. The Language we speak is ENGLISH..learn it...or LEAVE...Now, isn't that a winner of a plan?


'The Statue of Liberty is no longer saying 'Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses.' She's got a baseball bat and she's yelling, 'you want a piece of me?' '

A Bit of Freshness


Busy, busy, busy
is the way it's been around here lately.
With preparations for my Son's Wedding on Saturday,
getting the two younger ones ready for next semester, and going through
"those boxes"! it's been a little hectic around here.

My Conservatory has at empty since Easter.
Just no time to decorate it for Summer...not that Summer has arrived
 (Mother Nature is a little confused)
but anyway I finally got a minute to throw some of my fav's in it.


It's a little whimsical, in the center there is an Angel Blowing a Kiss, 
which has a special meaning.
A small Dress Form, Fairies, Dragonflies and tiny Topiary
lend themselves toward the magical feeling.

Most were all snagged at sales last Summer for a song.
The Dress Form was plain so I covered it in vintage hymnal pieces.
The flower ring was purchased at Monterey the last time a friend of mine visited. I covered the floor in reindeer moss.
I smile each time I look at it. 

When I was done I looked up and caught a glimpse of my corner hutch.
It was in need of a refresher course too.


I rearranged Mom's dishes...
 

then decided to add her McCoy Vases.



Enough playing, need to go pick up our dresses from the alterer.
Till next time...
xoxoxo
