First Blog

Rainbow…Good Morning to whoever might read this…Rainbow
This is my first blog on Windows Live, so I will keep it short and sweet.
This has been a long, cold spring, but at least we have enjoyed our share of sunny skies, unlike the south, where there have been dreadful and tragic storms. My thoughts are with those who have lost loved ones, or suffered devasting damage to their homes and lives. My husband and I are also watching the terrible reports from Myanmar and again, prayers to those affected. Our latest news tells us that the government is seizing humanitarian aid food, medicine and other support equipment — the UN has suspended shipments, and one wonders just who will now receive the existing supplies.
Another topic of interest at the moment is the American Democratic nomination race. Pundits are predicting a win for Barack Obama, including a cover on Time Magazine. I find it a bit disturbing that the media is so openly making this prediction when there are still 6 primaries — how will this influence those who have yet to vote? In Canada, for example, during a federal election, there is a ban on media reporting of results until polls have closed, to avoid this potential influence.
As promised, a short commentary musing upon several curent events.
