This is a blog for "people". You're not defined by your latest & greatest. You are you and that's great enough.

Heat, 100 degree plus days, humidity, above 35 percent, the dog days of June are upon us. I know, you that live in the southeast would love a summer day with only 35 percent humidity and are laughing but remember i laugh as you worry about tropical storms and hurricanes as you can expect to see them about once every 20 years and here we have tropical force winds and hurricane force gusts about a dozen times a year. It's all just a matter of perspective.
it's always nice to see old screen names post, it just goes to show that the Eagles were correct when they sang, "you can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave."
In my last post I would have loved to have heard from someone that was against their children being gay. Not that they wouldn't love them nor support them, but I do accept and welcome differing viewpoints. This not need to be a Ricky Rudd blog atmosphere just because we all don't agree. I understand though as it seems we may be tolerant of other ways of life, but we're not tolerant of those that aren't tolerant. Does that make sense?
Another controversial subject is abuzz here in Texas as the state government is introducing legislation to limit abortions, limiting where they can be performed, limiting access to abortion inducing pills and stopping all abortions when the fetus is over 20 weeks.
I've made no bones that personally I am against abortion and yet feel just as strongly that I have no right, nor does the government to control what another woman does to their body. I also feel strongly that if the government does step in that they should provide just as much care and concern for the child after it is born which has never been the case.
With that said and seeing that the government is involved I ask the QOD:
Should there be limits on abortion and to what extent?
