Mum likes reading, decorating, shopping with the girls, and Starbucks. She also feels funny writing in the 3rd person. Papa (also known as Sparky) is currently looking at me with a blank stare having asked him to add something about himself to the blog. (Now he wants to say something) The only thing he loves more in life than music and Coke is his wife and kids. (Awww...) :) Little Lotte is a genius on the computer and makes me fall over laughing every day with her quick wit. She loves computers and animals. Sweet Pea abandoned her family and moved to Phoenix for work and is now married as of 2/28/06. She is beautiful and smart and the most nurturing person I know. She gave me the greatest gift ever when she made me a grandmother. I am the proud Mum Mum to Andrew Christopher. There are no words to describe the joy of having a grandson!

"At Chicago's O'Hare International Airport, Ginni and Edward Dewbray were stopped at the security line and told if they wanted to bring a small bottle of Oil of Olay onto their flight to North Carolina, they would have to put it in a clear plastic bag. Edward Dewbray asked several other travelers for a bag and eventually found one."

Does the clear plastic bag have magical qualities? Superman had kryptonite. The TSA has Ziploc?!

And at the end of the article...

"After testing a variety of explosives, the FBI and other laboratories found that tiny amounts of substances _ so small they fit into a quart-size plastic bag _ can't blow up an airliner."

Ohhhhh.... somebody please explain to the TSA that the toiletries just have to FIT in a small space, not be IN the plastic bag! The screeners had already been through the Dewbray's carry-on luggage and were aware that the Oil of Olay was the only liquid they were carrying. Insisting it HAD to be in a plastic bag is just plain nonsense.
