"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."

Of course. A truly loving grandparent doesn't give treats. She gives broccoli.

First part - who doesn't? Kids love cooking and making a mess. They tend to be better at the latter than the former, but they like it.

Second part - encourage them? Are you nucking futs? I want the little sods to slow down for one minute. Just one!  :shrug:

Farmers markets are fun - farms are better if you have a friendly one near you.

I think nice warm stories about the brave Barack Obama would certainly be good for the kids. :3:

They might make them sleep. Or at least bother someone else!
