Link fun...

Some random things that made my day...

It may be really embarrassing that I am proud of this...or maybe more embarrassing that I have an intense addiction to Crown Burger. I found this link at your heart out. Love that too!

Found this CEO's aren't allowed to have an opinion of their own?

And Camille Paglia is one of my favorite opinion columnists. Sometimes I agree with her, sometimes I don't. However, her writing is always interesting and I think she is hilarious. Found this article to be fascinating--even more fascinating, the comments. Have we lost all ability to be respectful and civilized in this healthcare debate? We are so busy yelling we are missing the facts.

And this made my day. I may have laughed hysterically. In the office. It was great. Fake? Maybe. Funny? Absolutely.

Happy Wednesday!

Question, question. I have a question.

Random question.  I don't want this blog to get too political.

However, as many know, the United States is involved in a large debate surrounding health care and government involvement.  Both sides are slamming the other is all too "typical politics" for me.

Each side is claiming to know the minds of those {from around the world} that are currently participating in a health care system that is government involved/sponsored.

So, I am curious.  If you live in a country where the government is involved in your health care system...what has your experience been?  Was it positive? Negative? Neutral?  Do you like it the way that it is, feel you get good care?  Would you rather the government stay out of it?  Is the care marginal?  Are they rationing care?  Can you see the doctors you want to see?

While I have traveled around, I have never lived in another country, so I have no experience with another health care system.  Seeing as I continue to hear two sides claiming that the people (all of you) would agree with them, I want to know what you think.  (And please tell me what country you are from...) I am over the political mumbo-jumbo and want to know the true life experiences.

Educate me, please.
(and thank you, in advance.)

We spent the weekend at Bear Lake.
Bear Lake, to me, is perfection.
We go every year, with some of my favorite people, and we look forward to it all year long.
This year was special because it was the Squeeze's first year.
We thought she would like it, and oh, were we right!

Even though the water is notoriously chilly, she loved it!

(and isn't the color of that water amazing?  it is a lake.)
And P spent lots of time water skiing and wake boarding.  He was awesome, as usual.
I had a blast wake boarding too, but I don't post photos of myself in swimwear.
Believe me, it is for the benefit of all.  
It was a fantastic little vacay.
Next post: Raspberry Days.
