After taking approximately 65 photos this afternoon, I have a little more respect for photographers. I just didn't have the patience to continue with kind encouragement after about picture 26. I found myself shouting things like, "Smile with your teeth! Not that many teeth! Keep your eyes open! Act like you love each other! Stop poking your brother!"
I'm sorta surprised the neighbors didn't come out to watch.

I have. People are crazy drivers. Mrs. Bickerson found this Youtube video highlighting the driving skills of one of the best. My chauffeur, however, was one of the more highly skilled. Here is a picture of four great friends sharing a good meal and lots of laughs.

I sound like talk radio, don't I? Anyway, Rachel made this fancy "Skiving" snack box for a Harry Potter fan today. If you didn't read the Potter series, you probably don't know about the Fainting Fancies or Nosebleed Nougats. Ours taste pretty good because we used homemade chocolate truffles instead.

Anyway, congrats to Obama and his magic team.
On a related note, Mr. Rellim is extremely concerned about a ballot initiative in California that passed, mandating "free-range" animal production. Get ready for some expensive bacon and eggs, people!
On another related note, Californians also passed a ballot initiative that will provide millions of dollars in funding to create a supersonic train between SF and LA. Hmmm . . . I suppose there could be some excellent road kill possibilities if any free-range pork producers live near the tracks - or not. I once witnessed a rabbit run across a NASCAR speedway during a race. There wasn't much left for the clean-up crew to clean up.

"The average man votes below himself; he votes with half a mind or a hundredth part of one.
A man ought to vote with the whole of himself, as he worships or gets married.
A man ought to vote with his head and heart, his soul and stomach, his eye for faces and his ear for music; also (when sufficiently provoked) with his hands and feet.
If he has ever seen a fine sunset, the crimson color of it should creep into his vote. …
The question is not so much whether only a minority of the electorate votes.
The point is that only a minority of the voter votes."
— G.K. Chesterton

This is me as Sarah Palin alongside a friendly Red Power Ranger, whose mother graciously loaned him to us for the evening whilst trick or treating. My kids are getting big and we thought a smaller child would help complete our ensemble. Not every home owner agreed to vote for me on Tuesday, but most got a chuckle out of the costume.
