I have a long story about the reason we chose the name Levi for our 2nd child but it's too long to write here. Anyway, it had a lot to do with the hoop earings I wore daily in my ears at the time and a study I was doing in Genesis. Well, tonight Levi temporarily misplaced one of those earings and I told him it was important that he find it. He found it promptly and handed it over. I said, "Thanks. These are the earings that helped me name you Levi." (random?) He said, "So if I wouldn't of found them would my name be Le?"

This picture was sent to me a few minutes ago and was in the form of those *Priceless* MasterCard commercials. Here’s how it went:

Cost of a bowl of soup at a homeless shelter–$0.00

Having Michelle Obama serve you your soup–$0.00

Snapping a picture of a homeless person who is receiving a government funded meal while taking a picture of the first lady using a $500.00 Blackberry cell phone–Priceless

**As I’ve always said, North America has the richest poor people in the world.

***Was this the same soup kitchen Michelle wore her $450 shoes to?

Shoe tree

Seriously. I wish you could see this tree up close and personal. It's near my cabin and I saw another one the other day! What you might not be able to capture in this pic is that it is full, and I mean FULL, of womens shoes. The guy that lives here threw them all in the tree. The woman he lived with (?) left him one day randomly so he threw all 492 pairs of her (tied) shoes in this tree. In the fall it is really quite lovely-no. Crazy!!! Maybe it's tadition up in them thar parts. Next time Im gonna actually stop closer and take a better pic so you can get the full effect. If you look dead center you can see a couple pairs of tennies. If I did this, all to my shame, the tree would be uprooted.
