My desk that these are sitting on is actually black, but my walls are deep red. I like the way the color reflected off the wall and on to the desktop.
So, did you play? Let me know and I'll come and visit yours (when I'm sprung from work!) Also, stop by and see our hostess with the mostest- Kristine and wish her a happy June!

You were definitely meant to be born in in Luxemborg. You prefer to keep to your close-knit social group of relatives and friends, and enjoy working with those people for mutual gain. You like to live well, and although you are by no means aggressive or hostile, you have no problem taking advantage of those outside your circle for monetary gain.

Information About Same-Sex Parents
The Human Rights Campaign estimates that same-sex couples are raising children in at least 96% of all counties in the U. S. At least one out of three lesbian couples and one out of five gay male couples are raising children nationwide. There are also an additional number of LGBT parents whom we cannot accurately count. (See COLAGE for a discussion.) Many leading medical organizations, including the American Medical Association, the American Academy of Family Physicians, and the American Academy of Pediatrics have said parents’ sexual orientation is irrelevant to their ability to raise children. At the same time, in many states, same-sex couples cannot legally establish a joint relationship to children they are raising together. Furthermore, all same-sex parents and their children are denied the 1,138 federal protections of marriage. In most states (with the exception of those in California, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Vermont) they are also denied hundreds of state marital benefits. This can impact children’s quality of life in many ways, including: A reduced chance of having family health insurance through an employer, or, at best, higher insurance costs than for the families of married heterosexual workers. Loss of Social Security benefits when one parent dies. Additional federal income tax for a same-sex family where one parent stays at home with the children.

Everyday, we look at dozens of websites. The structure of these websites is defined in HTML. Your browser's job is to render the HTML according to the specs. HTML consists of so-called tags, like the 'A' tag for links, 'IMG' tag for images and so on. Since tags are nested in other tags, they are arranged in a hierarchical manner, and that hierarchy can be represented as a graph. Here's The Generator Blog as a graph. Colors used are blue for links, red for tables, green for the DIV tag, violet for images, yellow for forms, orange for linebreaks and blockquotes, black for the HTML tag, and gray for all other tags.

Free association is described as a "psychonanalytic procedure in which a person is encouraged to give free rein to his or her thoughts and feelings, verbalizing whatever comes into the mind without monitoring its content." Over time, this technique is supposed to help bring forth repressed thoughts and feelings that the person can then work through to gain a better sense of self. That's an admirable goal, but for the purposes of this excercise, we're just hoping to have a little fun with the technique. Each week I'll post ten words to which you can respond to with the first thing that comes to mind.
