Vote for Ron Paul!
Not only does he fit the mold of traditional Republican values -- fiscally conservative, socially conservative and a constitutionalist -- Paul also supports calls to eliminate the Internal Revenue Service and the federal income tax. Where Paul deviates from the party line is his vocal opposition to the war, which has marginalized the medical doctor among many mainstream GOP supporters.There was a strong anti war pro Ron Paul crowd in the Florida Primary Republican Debate audience on the campus of Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida tonight. Results from a MSNBC post debate text messaging poll showed Ron Paul leading before the network decided not to post the official results at the end of the post-debate coverage. The move clearly gets conspiracy theorists abuzz on the Ron Paul posting forums. There was no doubt once again that the clear winner of the debate was Ron Paul.

The dedication of Ship 102, The Spirit of DeltaIn the spring of 1982 the airline industry was suffering from a weak economy, high fuel prices, and the effects of an air traffic controllers strike. For the first time in 35 years Delta posted a quarterly loss. As a way of expressing their appreciation for the company during this time, Delta employees spearheaded Project 767—with a lofty goal to purchase the first Boeing 767 aircraft to give to the company as a gift. Lead by 3 flight attendants, the grassroots project focused on a voluntary program to raise $30 million through the combined efforts of employees, retirees, and friends.
The nearly impossible goal became a reality on December 15, 1982 when Delta employees gathered at the Technical Operations Center in Atlanta, Georgia to present the company with its first Boeing 767, Ship 102. Christened The Spirit of Delta, the aircraft was unveiled before thousands of employees and the international media. This historic aircraft, a visual symbol of that which makes Delta unique, has served as an ambassador of the Delta culture for over 23 years by displaying special liveries commemorating the 1996 Atlanta Olympics and Delta's 75th Anniversary in 2004.
The Spirit of Delta's Farewell Tour, February 21-March 6, 2006
After 23 years of service, The Spirit of Delta has retired. To mark this special occasion, Ship 102 embarked on a Farewell Tour to give employees, retirees, friends, and charities one last opportunity to be a part of Spirit's history.

Helium balloons inside and outside....bright yellow table cloth and fancy birthday plates.!!!
I thought of being really sneaky and parking my car down the road...but let's not get carried away. Made some pigs in a blanket...bought Fried Chicken fingers and salad...a cheese/vegie tray....CARROT CAKE...rolls...I'm salivating right now...it smells so good in here. I just LOVE Publix.
Michael and Robin celebrated their birthday's already...Michael in Leesburg and Robin here in Tallahassee....but what the heck....I'm certain they won't turn down more presents and cake!
While I am typing, Tigger is climbing all over the computer. It's a good thing I took typing...don't need to look at the keys or the screen. He is CRAZY. He is just small enough to fit in the tiny spaces and thinks everything is something to swipe his paws at.
Well....the party should be starting soon. Now be very still and in just a few minutes...when I give the signal.....
