Good morning. I like Thursdays. Even though I have to get up at 3:30 am for an early out of town appointment each week. Fortunately, it's always followed by an early breakfast with friends and/or family. I got one of those "Where's George?" dollars back in change when I paid for breakfast. The web site and "Please Enter Serial #" were stamped onto it.

Amina Lawal is free! She's the Nigerian lady who had a baby out of wedlock and was to be stoned to death according to the laws of her area. Humanitarian groups stepped in and got her a reprieve for two years of breast feeding her baby. Now her 2 yrs is up and the courts have stepped in again. Lawal's case had become the focus of human rights groups around the world who were outraged at the sentence that Lawal should be buried up to her neck and then have stones thrown at her head until she was dead. I've followed her case as have many bloggers, so this is a sweet victory.

I have always been delighted at the prospect of a new day, a fresh try, one more start, with perhaps a bit of magic waiting somewhere behind the morning. ~J. B. Priestley

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
