The greatest destroyer of peace is abortion because if a mother can kill her own child, what is left for me to kill you and you to kill me? There is nothing between.

The Facts

My name is Pam and I’ve been blogging since October 17 2001.

I write about family life, politics, whatever happens to be growing in my yard and other current events.

My husband ‘Mike’ shows up frequently in my posts, as do our dogs Bree, Daisy and Badger. Rarely, the kids and grandkids.

The Random

Never grew up, never wanted to.

Optimistic Realist.

Greens and Blues.

I could eat spaghetti every day and not tire of it.

Fiscal Conservative, Social Independent. I’m of the live and let live crowd.

I’m adopted. Through testing I discovered that I’m 43% Scandinavian (Norway), 22% Irish and the rest English, but nobody really knows who I am, even me. I should have been a spy.

The Rules

You are welcome to disagree with me. I could be wrong about something and not know it.

The only time I will alter a comment in any way is to delete spam. If you piss me off too many times, you become spam.

Like most bloggers, I solicit readership. I want opinions. This is not a private diary or a tiny fascist government.

All original content ¬©pamibe. If I ever say anything original [hasn’t happened in quite some time so I wouldn’t hold my breath] you’re welcome to quote me as long as you provide linkage back.

Thanks for reading, and please don’t hesitate to email me if you have a question or wish to use one of my photographs. They’re not all that, but they’re mine. You know how it is.
