My husband and I finally got to go away for the weekend and relax in New Hope, PA. We stayed at a very nice called bed and breakfast Porches on the Towpath. The location was perfect and the prices were reasonable. We had access to the path along the canal right outside our room. We also were right in the heart of all the great shops, restaurants, and live entertainment the town has to offer. Here is a pic from the garden on the grounds were we stayed:
I was excited to hear the news today that Governor Corzine approved a plan to preserve the shore line of the Highlands in New Jersey from further development. It was great to know the New Jersey governor is thinking about our future and taking measures to protect our land to ensure our water and air are cleaner. This plan will help protect our water. I read that environmentalists are concerned that the ungoing development by areas surrounding lakes and reservoirs is decreasing the amount water that is needed by neighboring communites.
I could not believe all the talk I was hearing about Bristol Palin, the seventeen year old pregnant daughter of Sarah Palin, John McCain's running mate. It does not make sense to me in the year 2008 that a pregnent seventeen year old can shake a political campaign. There are far more important issues to be focusing on that effect America and the rest of the world. One million teenagers get pregnant everyday! Nothing new here.
Family matters should be kept quiet. There is no reason why the whole world needs to know about this teenager's business because she is not causing any harm to anyone. I hate when people make judgments or comment on someone that they do not know at all. This girl is just like every other pregnant teenager. People should look to her as someone with strength for choosing to have her baby and raise it so young. Sarah Palin should be viewed as a very realistic and supportive mother who is celebrating her daughter's decision.
