Happy New Year!
Resolution: to read the major documents about the founding of our country:
Declaration of Independence
various Presidential Inaugural Addresses and major speeches.
Good News: They are available for reading FREE on-line! I am constantly amazed at the amount of really good literature that is available on-line. Check out these places: Project Gutenberg, Kellscraft, The Federalist to name only a few places. I won’t go into all the places I have found poetry (both great and sappy) and song lyrics.

Well. to be brutally honest, I didn’t get all that reading done! But I did get a chunk of it done. I was, and am, amazed at the pure brain power of the founding fathers of our country. They knew just what kind of place they wanted to live in – and, guess what? It is NOT the kind of country we most recently have made it into!! They wanted a place that would allow people be free to do what they wanted and become what they wanted with no interference by government and no taxes! Period! Hmmmm. Your rights would end only where my nose began – really. I was amazed. Gotta get with it and read the rest of them! Wonder what other surprises await me?!
