We have seen our share of cold and snow this year on the Eastern Shore. I sure hope this is not a new trend.
Be sure to check my blog as the last couple of weeks this email has been trapped and returned as spam.
The following is another option to read the newsletter. I set up a Goggle group called ‘More Interesting Info’ http://groups.google.com/group/more-interesting-news where you can read the most recent newsletters.

This issue deals with a lot of political and government stuff. As you all know I usually stay away from anything political related and this will be the last of its kind for the foreseeable future.

You have just 18 days to make your comments and ideas heard at the federal government site Opengovtracker.com. This site lets you post any ideas or comment you want the federal government to act upon. You can also vote on the proposals that also have been submitted. Please lie your ideas there and vote on the best idea you want the federal government to act upon.

While on the same subject another site has some interesting reading on what the federal copyright czar wants to know about how to clarify the copyright laws. This area really need much attention and I have sent a long dissertation on the changes that I feel need to be made. Read the article and then send your thoughts to intellectualproperty@omb.eop.gov.
The article to read is at the following web site.

There is a real interesting article on Computerworld’s web site that reveals what Microsoft store about your from your MSN account and other Microsoft accounts. It also show what Microsoft is willing to freely give to any federal or police department upon request without a subpoena. Check it out. I know you will be surprised as I was.

If the following seems like a good idea to you, follow the link.
“The Contract from America serves as a clarion call for those who recognize the importance of free market principles, limited government, and individual liberty. It is the natural extension of a movement that began in the local communities and quickly spread across America in response to unprecedented government expansion, reckless spending, and a blatant disregard by our leaders of the nation’s founding principles.”

“An idea not coupled with action will never get any bigger than the brain cell it occupied. “
