Inauguration 2009

In spite of the fact that I am a TV-free, middle aged Republican, I am watching the presidential inauguration coverage on CNN's live feed today via Facebook. However one may feel about the incoming administration, the peaceful transfer of power in the U.S. is something not to be taken for granted. In addition, today's inauguration of the first African American president is a truly historic one, as is the amazing technology that makes it possible for us to see it on such a personal level.

I had to watch it with a room full of kindergarteners that I was trying to keep quiet so the teacher could hear the speach. Not an easy feat. Glad you found a way to watch it.

Aw, man!! How did the kindergartners react to all that history?

Hi, I just read on another blog that you posted a recipe for Lentil Soup. Where can I find that? I love lentils. Thanks.

What was the other blog? I've searched this one and haven't found it, and don't remember posting it. (Doesn't mean I didn't though.) Could it have been Dymphna over at Dymphna's Road?

Well, it took me several minutes to go back and see what I looked at this morning. I hope this is what you can open to read the comments. Yup, it's you.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
