Itzl AlertingAs you can see by Itzl's concerned look, this group is for us to check in at to let people know we are alive, doing OK, and not affected by such things as heat, blizzards, floods, wild fires, hurricanes, tornadoes, power outages, or other such things that could keep us off DKos. It's also so we can find other Kossacks nearby for in-person checks when other methods of communication fail - a buddy system. Members come here to check in. If you're not here, or anywhere else on DKos, and there are adverse conditions in your area (floods, heatwaves, hurricanes, etc.), we and your buddy are going to check up on you. If you are going to be away from your computer for a day or a week, let us know here.  We care!
We have split up the publishing duties, but we welcome everyone in IAN to do daily diaries for the group!  Every member is an editor, so anyone can take a turn when they have something to say, photos and music to share, a cause to promote or news!

Ok, we have a (mostly)  finished diary schedule.  If you would like to fill in, either post in thread or send FloridaSNMom a Kosmail with the date. If you need someone to fill in, ditto. FSNMom is here on and off through the day usually from around 9:30 or 10 am eastern to around 11 pm eastern.

Good morning everyone!

Stuff to ponder:

It's always darkest before dawn.  So, if you're going to steal your neighbor's newspaper, that's the time to do it.

If you think nobody cares if you are alive, try missing a couple of car payments.

Before you criticise someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes.  That way when you do criticise them you'll be a mile away, and have their shoes.

If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is probably not for you.

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day.  Teach him how to fish and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.

If you lend someone $20.00 and you never see that person again, it was probably a good investment.

If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.

Some days you're the bug, some days you're the windshield.

Everyone seems normal, until you get to know them.

A closed mouth gathers no foot.

There are two theories to arguing with women.  Neither one works.

Never under any circumstances take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

That's all folks.  Have a great day.
