Kids Will Be Kids

Even as they're embarking on their 30s, our children can sometimes sugar coat things especially if they don't want their to upset their parents.

I have a daughter who lives and works in Dublin.  She's got a good job and it seems like she's there for the long haul.

Given the time difference I sometimes have difficulty reaching her as quickly as I would like. With hurricane/tropical storm Ophelia barreling down on Ireland I thought to send her a facebook message: "Stay indoors. Stay safe. Stay in touch."

That was greeted with assurances she was perfectly safe. The whole thing was nothing really. Then she let slip that she and her girlfriends were standing near her balcony when they saw the winds tear the door off the Starbucks across the street.

Nothing to see here, unless you're missing a front door.

I think we are about! the same age and we both have a daughter.
My daughter is trying to save the world and has enlightened me in many ways.

This woman ws in a realm of herself , a cut above the rest and virtually ignored by the north american media.


No wonder Assange seeks refuge in the Ecuadorian Embassy.

Freedom of expression and truth has never been so challenged !
