German Family Photo

November 9th, 2008

I was just checking out facebook.com again today and got some happy birthday wishes recently. What was really impressive, was my friend and distant-family-member Rolf posted a group photo of my visit with Melissa and Tini last summer. It was really nice of him, and so I dug up my copy (I prefer the antique look) and wanted to post it to share. Eventually, these photos will make it to the wiesefam.org site when I get it rebuilt! =)

Melissa, Tini, Brian and the Kimmeyer Family in Germany. July 2007

The Kimmeyer family now currently lives in the house and on the farm that once belonged to my great-great-great grandfather. They offered such warm hospitality, splendid company, and conveniently for us – all spoke English very well!

Vote with Love

November 9th, 2008

I just found from52to48withlove on del.icio.us, which visually speaks the message of unity in our country across political lines. We all make different judgments and have our opinions on what the most important problems are, how they should be addressed, and which candidate is best suited for the job. We have our differences, but we also have so much in common – love of our country.

The site talks mentions Red (Republican) and Blue (Democrat) states or voters, but I think left out us White (Libertarian, 3rd parties, independent…) voters! Oh well, in time they’ll see we really are in that “middle ground” and can truly bridge the polar opposites the Republicans and Democrats have come to represent. Candidates like Ron Paul attracted so many supporters from the across the entire spectrum of political affiliations, and I think, in time, the American people will get there too.

This is my favorite image, so cute, so beautiful and to the point!

blue vote and red vote kiss

One of our greatest needs as human beings is to be loved. We all need love… and our country needs love!

My favorite bible passages, from 1 John 4:8,16.

MD Election Results 2008

November 9th, 2008

Here are the Official MD 2008 Election Results. I was surprised to see that McCain beat Obama 2-1 in my own precinct, and beat Obama by 2.2% in my county of Anne Arundel. State-wide however, Obama won 61.1% to McCain’s 37.3%. Bob Barr turned up 0.4% in both Anne Arundel and on the whole state-wide.
