Obviously, I'm not very active here but once I'm back in Taiwan for a whole month, with lots of time to kill, that may change, who knows.

I'm way more active on Facebook: Julia Gosztyla Ziobro http://www.facebook.com/?ref=logo#!/jziobro

Sick @ 06:21 pm

Current Mood: cranky cranky

Being sick is horrible but nothing is worse than a sick three month old baby with an outsize cough to make you feel sorry for a person. We're more than a week into it... it's got to get better soon, right?

I couldn't agree with Representative Kucinich more, and so, I'm taking the unusual step (for me) of forwarding this to everyone I know via my blog and other means. Please take a few moments to go sign the impeachment petition!

From Rep. Dennis Kucinich:
URGENT: need your help -
Impeachment Petition Deadline Midnight Wednesday

Dear Friends,
Because of your vigilance and support for democracy, last Friday was a day of singular importance in Washington. The House Judiciary Committee met to discuss the Bush Administration's abuse of executive power and for the first time the case for Impeachment was discussed in front of a Congressional committee, in depth, at length and with authority.

Twenty members of the Judiciary Committee attended the six hour hearing, during which twelve witnesses, including myself and four members of Congress testified. In this hearing I called for the Impeachment of the President for misrepresenting a case for war.

This week I will present members of Congress with Impeachment petitions submitted by those of you who have signed the on-line impeachment form.

I need your help. In the next few days we must redouble our efforts to get more signatures on the online petition at kucinich.us. I'm asking each of you to please contact at least ten of your friends to go to www.Kucinich.us now and sign the Impeachment petition that will be delivered by me. Wednesday night is the deadline.

Please send out an email to all your friends and family, post this link, http://kucinich.us to your blogs and make this effort count as this is the only petition that I will deliver.

Thank you so very much.
Dennis Kucinich

You Are Barbeque Sauce

You are a social person. You enjoy cooking for other people.

You are both skillful and competitive. You enjoy mastering hard tasks.

You appreciate complexity more than simplicity.

Your taste in food tends to lean toward interesting flavors.

You appreciate exotic spice combinations. You tend to like cutting edge, fusion cuisine.

You get along with all personalities from a distance. Except salsa personalities, who always seem to annoy you.

Spouse: John
Children: Felix, age 9.5 weeks, Joanne, age 8.5 years, Heather, a few days shy of 14, Alan, 24 years, somewhere.
