My husband's brother returned from Iraq safe and sound yesterday. Just a short six weeks until both boys are home.

And, in honor of the boycotts, yesterday I spent money on a Kitchenaid mixer, Bill Whittle's book, a TV/DVD for our education center, and a trip to Fort Lauderdale. Take that, protestors!

I suspect the "Buy Nothing" boycott was basically countered by those that support Bush, or at least by those who are just getting on with their lives.

Okay Sarah, for that purpose I will approve ANY mixer or appliance you want to buy!!!
I do wonder if others spent extra money just to make a point.

Just bought my first house. I moved the date I
closed on it back to the 20th to counter the
silly 'notonedamndime'crowd. Not a fancy house,but I was able to pay CASH. No mortgage. I figured that significant bit of the filthy green
stuff(for me)cancelled out several hundred idiots
worth of 'protest'! GO W GO
