You'll be happy to know that I have donated to the Lighted Candle Society. They are a good organization. All I have to say is that I'm going to buy some pretty heavy duty web-monitering/blocking software like BeSafe to help keep out the bad stuff.

Louise and I had a conversation recenly about how she has really good guy friends and I have good girl friends (not girlfriends, but girl -- friends) and that this modern society has really made it more of a minefield to have truely deep and solid platonic relationships with both same and different genders.
