Girls Write Out

I'm still not happy with our politicians in Indiana for forcing daylight saving time down our throats, but at least they've done something right. This year we had the option of a new IN GOD WE TRUST plate.

Dave and I were way eager to get one. We thought we might have to buy a new plate if we wanted one rather than to get the sticker and keep the ugly old plate, but we were prepared to pony up to the plate and plunk down any our money, but none was required. When Dave went in to renew our plates, he asked if we could get one, and they handed it right over.

Here's the really cool thing. It's popular! Since January they've sold nearly 400,000 of them. At first I wondered if it was just a reflection of our conservative values in Indiana--and I'm sure that's a good part of it--but if you'd seen our old plates, I've got to think some people who aren't Christians grabbed that new plate just to get rid of the old one. LOL

Still, it's a nice feeling to drive around our state and see the plate. At least it makes us not look totally stupid for swallowing the DST lie. LOL

I love the new plates! Wish the whole country would plaster that on cars...then live it. Now as for DST, I am a great fan. Sorry, can't be sympathetic there. And this w/e we had the most unusual sight: snow on bluebonnets! omigoodness. Ya'll keep that cold weather, thank you very much.

Oh I bet that was a sight to see, Eileen!

I can't adjust to the DST. I still wake up at the time it REALLY is. And want to go to bed later too because it's really only 10 not 11. LOL And it's been WEEKS. Last year I never did adjust at all. So it's a real trial for me.

but once we get to Arizona, no more dealing with that insanity!

I love the plate and love DST! :o) I wish they'd leave DST all year round. I hate it when it gets dark early. Fortunately, here in GA, it stay light till about 6 PM in the winter.

DST totally messes with our routine. The kids go to bed when it's light out and get up for school when it's pitch black. And as for the snow...any other year it wouldn't have bothered me, but we have a film to shoot and it's NOT SUPPOSED TO BE SNOWING!

I love the plate! Wow, I wish Florida would do one.

You know, when I get worried about the spiritual state of our nation, I remember the logo, "In God We Trust" and "One Nation Under God."

I pray it. Remind God of who we are and ask for His mercy.

That's almost enough to make me wanna move to Indianna...almost:-)

And here's a heads up: I'm reading Midnight Sea this week:-)

But I'm so anxious for "Abomination" to finally hit the shelves:-(

I still don't get DST. What is that? I mean, if you go back, then go forward all the time, do we lose days, minutes, years? At this point in my life, I don't need that. I'm with you, Colleen.

And I, too, think our new state plate option is a winner. YES, the old one was so ugly, I wondered what political favor to someone's wife who "likes to design" was cashed in. Ewwww.

Oh cool, Deena! I hope you like it.

Crystal, I don't get DST either. Just get up earlier and don't make the rest of us do it. Sheesh. LOL

What a wondeful bit of good news. Makes me happy! And I'm with Ane Mulligan...I hate the dark. I live for springtime and the light that it brings.

The new plates are great... until you get flipped off by someone driving in a car with the "In God We Trust" plates. Come on, why spend the extra money to get the plates if you're just going to create a bad name by flipping off other drivers!
