No story on the cool new street signs around St. Rose? I thought it would be on everyone's radar this morning.

As for the "Occupy" idiots, why don't they do it in Washington Park, ya know, where the rest of the homeless people "occupy" everyday.

If anyone is interested, images last Saturday's [Oct 15] #Occupy Wall St Rally at the State Capitol east lawn are on line @ http://www.flickr.com/photos/nysut/sets/72157627792432679/ One of my favorite original signs in the photo collection says "The Original Wall St Protestor" with a painting of Jesus Christ confronting the money junkies.

I am so very thankful for the wonderful people who wandered in and out of my life over the last few years. They have given me the love and support I need to survive and thrive. Last year at this time I was at my lowest. By the grace of all that is good in my life, I have climbed out and I'm happier than I've been in a very, very long time.
