YOU CAN'T COMPLAIN IF YOU DON'T VOTE

Bad officials are elected by good citizens who do not vote.   – George Jean Nathan

Everyone in my realm of influence (it’s a small circle, believe me) seems to think their vote will not count, so they have decided not to go to the polls at all today.  All of these good people happen to be women.  Immediately I think, “So the women’s suffrage movement of the past were in vain?”

I, as a woman, will not take my right to vote in the United States for granted.  What if women had not gotten the right to vote?  No, it’s my right to vote – and I will continue to vote as long as I live.  I encourage you to do the same.

There are always too many Democratic congressmen, too many Republican congressmen, and never enough U.S. congressmen.   – Author Unknown

Today’s post is not about Republican or Democrat – it’s about freedom and exercising your basic right to vote.  Sometimes we take the freedom we have for granted – we’ve all done it.  But today is the day to wake up and realize that the rights we have today could be taken away if we don’t exercise them.  It’s a lot like muscle mass – if we don’t use those free weights on a regular basis, we can become flabby and weak.

 People often say that, in a democracy, decisions are made by a majority of the people.  Of course, that is not true.  Decisions are made by a majority of those who make themselves heard and who vote – a very different thing.   – Walter H. Judd

Here in Kansas we have a very interesting Senate race and if for no other reason, show up to vote for our next Senator.  That one will be a real dandy!

You KNOW how I like cakewrecks.com and this one just cracked me up!

NATIONAL CAKE DECORATING DAY

TL 10-15 NATIONAL CAKE DECORATING DAY

10-15 IF I WAS A CAKE

Today is NATIONAL CAKE DECORATING DAY. I have no talent for cake decorating whatsoever, but I admire the gift very much.  I like to laugh and bet you do too.  Here are some funny cakes.

I’m not poking fun at the people who decorate cakes (ok, maybe I am a bit), but it seems like one of the questions asked on a job application would be, “can you spell?” I mean, if you can’t spell CONGRATULATIONS, then maybe you should re-think your career choice even if you can decorate a cake beautifully!

To see funny and fantastic photos of bad cake decorating, go to www.cakewrecks.com

While I was looking through all the really cute cake wrecks, I noticed one that says, “Happy Birthday in French”.  No, I mean that is literally what they wrote on the cake!  Honestly, with the internet at your fingertips there is NO excuse for this! I mean, is that lazy or what? I took three years of French in High School, so I know that the most common way to say “happy birthday” in French is “joyeux anniversaire”. It would be so simple to google it – so that cake really cracked me up!

What a swetty pie!!!

There are so many funny cakes on the internet.  Most are on Cake Wrecks, but there are more on Pinterest and many more places.

Anybody can learn to decorate a cake, but it takes a class act to really mess it up!  – Linda Palmer

Here is a lovely Barbie cake.

I especially like the cakes where you know the decorator wrote the entire instruction on the cake.  Like the one that said, “If there’s room, add Happy Birthday, Chad”.   I’m just so sure Chad’s family was tickled to pay for that cake!  It sure did make a cute mistake for the cake wreck file though.  So, would you classify that as a mistake or a triumph?  Hmm…  makes you wonder.  Wink!  😉
