    It is just impossible to understand how someone can walk into a Kindergarten classroom and shoot an entire class.

    Very, very sad.

    I will be going to the farm in a little while and escape reality for a bit.

    Good Morning after yesterday I hugged my husband and said
    How lucky we are that my daughter and his children were able to be safe in their schools
    I sent a message to my daughter saying I love you

    I think my cat sensed my sadness so he is laying beside me

    I think there is a sickness in this country. I turned off CSI last week. The plot was about a chain saw murder where the victim was cut in half while still alive complete with graphic representations of the body parts and blood. So what do they expect when our entertainment media is saturated with crap like that and our youth are desensitized to horror and mutilation.

    I'm running behind in my schedule for him due to Me being a little on the jaded side, lack of energy. Today is a different ball game and a riding we go leaving in an hour or so and if he goes O/K Ill keep him out most of the day. My plan is to take him over my neighbours farm, through some forest and end up on the beach. Then along the beach to allow him to get aquanted with cars before I come off the beach into the settlement and about a mile and an half of road work going back home. In all about 5 hours walking.

    I have enterd into another trek on the 19th January so a lot of work to be done on Bugs Not to mention me.

    Roslyn asked me how long I was keeping him, I told her I had brought him, she said I did not tell her. Im sure I did last week when I made up my mind. Now I really have to prove it was a good decision. LOVE IS, being used to being in the crap. Its just the depth the varies. She sould consider her self lucky i'm not internet shopping for a new saddle. But there is a thought.

    Your country does not have that on its own we are all watching the same movies, then we lower the drinking age to 18 and I'm sorry for any young person that reads this at 18 they still have a mountain of maturing left to do. And now our elected representivies, world wide, are going about the process of allowing the use of cannabis, then they are going to drive cars. The worst is yet to come. I can remember back to when I was 18 and knew it all. Well I did not know a **** thing. When In NZ they lowered the drinking age to 18 it started a culture of alcohol abuse. Drunk kids on the street outside allnight clubs. These kids now have problems dealing with alcohol addiction, will get themselvs locked up and end up with destroyed lives all because the establishment gave them credit for being mature. Or was it to gain votes and stay in the well paid job. ?

    Some moron recently mentioned to lower the voting age down to 16. The problem I see in this country is a large portion of our government members are not elected. They get into government by what is called the party vote. They call it the MMP system government by differing parties joining together to form a government, AND if done on a vote count they don't have a majority. Jobs for the boys and girls is all it is.

    I think ill go and clean up the kitchen just to change my mood befor I ride.

    Eliduc, I totally agree.
    This world has always had some sickness and evil in it....but amplifying it and glorifying it with today's technology and media does de-sensitize our young. It's a horrible thing.
    Not so many years ago, when my kids were pre-teen and even into their teenaged years, they had a whole world of fun out back in our tree row. The neighbor boy and my boys built an incredible 'fort'. They used an sold camper topper for the main part, then added on with wood, sticks, and lots of creativeness. They had a kitchen, beds, a mailbox that I delivered notes to, and they even planted a small garden.
    That is the kind of thing our kids should be doing, in my opinion, instead of being planted before TV and video games.
    Sigh.
    My boys did eventually get video games....but I dissuaded it a long long time.

    Stan, I also totally agree. Drinking age at 18.....shudder. Voting at 16? No way! Scary stuff.
