Strange Weather Monday

Currently Reading: I'm almost finished with Vanishing Acts. I'll be diving into Last Glass of Wine by Bekki Lynn later today:)


Get this: Woke up to frost on the car windows! And the high today? Close to 60!

Not much to say this morning; I'm getting ready for my interview www.blogtalkradio.com/jtravisgrundon and hoping my body behaves itself. I've discovered that two tablets of Mucinex seems to help keep the coughing at bay...at least, it helped me sleep last night. So we'll see what happens this afternoon from 2-3pm. Hubby's planning to take the toddler to his favorite store (either Lowes or Rural King...no Toys R Us in this town!) so I can have peace and quiet while on the phone.

Just heard a disturbing piece of news: A county in Indiana has banned smoking in cars while children are present, and the police now have the right to pull you over if they spot you lighting up with heads bobbing.

While I don't smoke, and do support the ban on smoking in restaurants, this strikes me as an extreme invasion of privacy. What's next; banning smokers from smoking in their own homes? Fortunately, my smoking friends are considerate of K's sensitivity to second-hand smoke (he gets physically ill if people smoke around him) and my own tendancy to need my inhaler if the smoke gets too thick, and either smoke outside or abstain while we're visiting. It's their choice to smoke; I don't believe we have the right to dictate what people do in their own homes (outside physical abuse, obviously!)

Our gas is up to $2.15; is it going up in your world too?

Have a good day and be kind to me if you tune in?

This IS an invasion of privacy and I believe unconstitutional. City ordanance, I assume? I predict this will be overturned. It's just another way for the police to be given the chance to search a car.
