Facebook Quick Take

Patricia [a Catholic school lay teacher]:
Why are we so judged when circumstances keep us from living up to everyone's expectations?
Kate Anne [moi -- and her girlhood friend]:
One of the nice things about getting older is that we become more lenient about expectations. Concentrate on the positive, where there has been success (probably lots of it), and let the rest go. Breathe, release, relax, and then as my sainted mother would say, "Let the asses bray."

President Obama: Ditch the Keystone XL Pipeline

Join me in writing the President to say NO to the Keystone XL Pipeline. Call him at 202-456-1111 AND Write him at

Learn more at BUT this is what I wrote:

Truly green CLEAN energy (NOT coal which is NOT clean nor green as it damages the environment) must be the focus -- NOT the Keystone XL pipeline which is an environmental disaster. Dirty heavy oil whose pipeline could leak and whose building would destroy forests and threaten CLEAN water could mean "GAME OVER", says one leading environmentalist. PLEASE REMEMBER YOUR PROMISES. Say NO to the Keystone Pipeline!!!

We need GREEN jobs, not LIFE-DESTROYING jobs. Please put the emphasis on truly green energy.

Please keep me apprised.

Most sincerely,
Kate Anne
