"You can't sell ideas to someone who is only interested in buying echoes"- Rev. Mark Spaw, my Pastor.

Really an interesting thought, isn't it? Everyone's been in that situation where you are trying to have a discussion about something, (anything!) and the person you're talking to won't budge at all. I found that to be a bit overwhelming and very frustrating during the election season last year. It was my first major election on social networking sites like Facebook. I have to say that I found myself becoming increasingly obsessed with trying to convince people of opposing opinions that mine was correct, thus becoming my own worst enemy. Funny how that works isn't it... I think of myself as an open-minded person, willing to admit defeat if someone proves a good point. But, I am very stubborn and it has gotten me in trouble many a time. Lessons learned, I suppose. :) "It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt."-Abraham Lincoln(generally attributed to him, although there is some doubt)

On a totally different note: HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all in Grobania! HAPPY THANKSGIVING to Josh, Chris, and Mr. and Mrs. Groban! :)
