Patriot bear

As some of you know, this year, I am running in my first ever 5K. It is for a really good cause, Susan G. Koman Race for the Cure. Their efforts have funded research that has helped my stepmother, Lorajean, my aunt Susan, and my great aunt Betty. I am sure many of you have been touched by this disease as well. I hope you will consider using the link below to make a dontation, however small.

Thank you,

I don't expect all that many people to be interested in seeing the video of our wedding (except my Dad!), but I loaded it to youtube so I could share it with anyone who was interested (it isn't searchable...I wanted to be able to direct people to it). and I am posting here so I can find it easily too (plus that has it in one more place because I am always paranoid of harddrive failure).

23rd-Sep-2009 09:23 am - I worked here: The Kolb Site
I have worked at this site, and the Indians who lived here are the ancestors of the PeeDee (my tribe). It is a pretty cool site, and the folks who work on it every year are the best!

Museum to highlight archaeological dig site

HARTSVILLE, SC (WMBF) - The Hartsville Museum has announced plans for an October exhibit that promises visitors a glimpse into the lives of those who once lived and worked at The Johannes Kolb archaeological dig site.

"We Were Here: Archaeology of the Johannes Kolb Site" will open to visitors on Oct. 1 and is expected to run until Nov. 14. The Johannes Kolb site, an archaeological dig located in Mechanicsville, is named for a German immigrant who settled there in 1737. Archaeological excavations have uncovered objects spanning from 12,000 B.C. up to the early 20th century.

Within the upcoming exhibit, visitors will be able to see things like Native American stone tools, some of the oldest pottery in North America, historic pottery and household items such as an engraved silver spoon, scissors, cufflinks, and nails, and other objects that were made/purchased, and eventually lost by people of the past.

There will also be a short looping film featuring primitive technologists demonstrating how some of the Native American tools were used and made.

The exhibit was created and developed by Erika Shofner, a Masters student at the University of South Carolina Anthropology Department as part of her thesis project. Erika's research focus is in archaeological public outreach and using archaeology as a teaching tool in the K-12 classroom.

You can use this link to urge your representative to sign on to the Respect for Marriage Act, which would repeal the Defense of Marriage Act. Please sign it and please pass it on. Because my marriage counts too.

Call me crazy, but even after eight years with a President who thought gays and lesbians were his personal whipping boys (and bois, and girls, and dykes), I still believe you should respect the office. That goes double if you serve the country either as an elected official, or in the Foreign or military service. I personally always behave in public, especially when I am in situations like being overseas or on camera, as though my actions, good or bad, reflect my country.

Because they do.

So I am both angry and embarrassed this morning. Angry at Representative Joe Wilson (R-SC) and embarrassed to be from South Carolina. I don't personally care what his opinion is on health care reform. Because that isn't the point. The point is that when you are representing your state and your country in that chamber, you behave with civility. You don't yell out calling the President a liar. Your perogotive is to stay quiet and not clap if you disagree. You had your time...eight years (and, in fact, 20 of the last 28 years)...to have your view stated by the man at the podium. You shouldn't even boo, though that is certainly preferable to yelling out "you lie."

Joe Wilson, you should know better. I bet your mother raised you better than that.

Seriously. In the past little over a year, SC has made the news for Miss "the Iraq" SC, a man getting intimate with a horse, a "family values" governor disappearing on the Appalachian Trail (not wait, that was to Argentina to screw his misstress), and that same governor being accused of outing his political rival so he didn't have to resign.

So seriously Joe. We have enough bad press already.

UPDATE: As of this morning, Rob Miller, a South Carolina Iraq War veteran and Democrat challenging Joe Wilson for his 2nd Congressional District seat in 2010, has raised $150,000 in the hours following Wilson's outburst. So there is something good for SC!
