I’m having major issues with Box.net and may not be able to get things straightened out until January. So I tried posting a link to the pattern right in the post itself. OMG! Why didn’t I think of this before? I’m going to post the next few patterns this way and see how it goes. It should make finding the PDF patterns much easier, yes?

“We wanted a President that listens to all Americans …
now we have one.”
~ Jay Leno ~
This is a late posting I know, but it’s posted in the spirit, not the letter of. If I could, I would exist outside of all time. I’m still not completely ready for last Christmas, which is not unusual, but the anticipation of Christmas is always with me. The words of MLK Jr. and other wisdom-bearers are always with me also, bringing hope into our sorry, sorry world.
The Forbidden Rose is a wonderfully written spy novel and historical romance. Bourne provides fascinating historical detail about the French Revolution, its political intrigues, and a rousing good story.
Whether you’re an intellectual, or just one of the rest of us, this is a great read. Thomas Sowell writes like a dream. I could read him just for his sentence structures, not to mention that he explains things as easily as a hot knife goes through butter. And he cites my all time favorite quote on the second page of his book … “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting, get understanding.” ~ Proverbs 4:7 American KJV
I love, love, love reading Thomas Sowell. He and Charles Krauthammer keep me sane!

John Taylor Gatto strikes again! Just found his new book, Weapons of Mass Instruction, in the library. We homeschooled for 12 wonderful, happy years, and he was one of our heroes! The man is a mensch. It’s great to read in print what you know in your heart. Government, government, government … you gotta love it. It’s efficient, trustworthy, ethical, always looking out for us, and educating our children with great new government ideas. Have any of you read Brave New World, 1984, or Fahrenheit 451?
