Courtesy of blessthebully.com I will be mentioning October 25th 2008 will be the second annual national Pit Bull awareness day. Awareness, education & advocacy. I wanted to mention this because they totally have my support the same as last year & I would just like to share & pass this info forward, do with it what you please, hopefully it's supportive or educational. The BSL just isn't fair don't punish a specific breed, punish the deed, educate and bring awareness.
Punish the irresponsible owners, not the loving & devoted owners like myself. They cant stand up for their rights, but we can, stop the discrimination. It's a sad fact that I can barely find a camp ground to take my APBT / AM STAFF to, not to mention the several other places that don't welcome them.
They can indeed be great family pets. Why couldn't they?? If you disagree please state why?? In the wrong hands yes they can be very dangerous. That's even more of a reason why an awareness day is a good deed, please support it or at least look into it for some educational facts and help further spread the word.
From the website itself:
Calling all responsible pit bull owners, advocates and fanciers...
Please mark Saturday, October 25, 2008 on your calendars for the SECOND ANNUAL nationwide Pit Bull Awareness Day.
Last year's first ever Pit Bull Awareness Day was an incredible success thanks to YOU - all the breed advocates across the country united to educate, raise awareness, and promote a positive pit bull image. This year's events can be even better!
Bless the Bully's has teamed up with ROVERlution for this great cause in an effort to raise awareness to the plight of the All-American pit bull terrier AND to make a united stand against breed specific legislation. October 25, 2008 will go down as a day that pit bull advocates all over the country joined forces in support of an incredible cause! To learn more about ROVERlution or host a Luv-a-Bully march, please visit www.roverlution.org.
In keeping with our tradition, your event is up to you... Whether you plan an event all your own (and being so close to HOWLoween, themed events could be a lot of fun!!) or if you choose to participate in a Luv-a-Bully march, please join us on October 25, 2008 to celebrate this incredible breed and their devoted and responsible owners!
Why a Pit Bull Awareness Day?
In light of the constant negative publicity and sensationalized hype that surrounds pit bulls, Pit Bull Awareness Day was established as a day to focus on these incredible dogs and their devoted, responsible owners.
As breed advocates, it is our duty to show the public that all pit bull owners ARE NOT alike. As responsible pit bull owners, we can no longer be willing to sit back and be judged and criminalized by the image set by the visible minority of irresponsible owners. Although we all work hard everyday to change the undeserved image of our dogs, Pit Bull Awareness Day is the time to collectively make our voices heard. After all, we are the ONLY voices are dogs have.
Regardless of where you are located, please join Bless the Bully's in celebrating this wonderful breed and their devoted, responsible owners/advocates.
Please participate in an activity on October 25, 2008 to promote and celebrate responsible pit bull ownership. Whether you choose to participate in a Luv-a-Bully March or another activity of you choice - an educational workshop, a meet and greet, a bully rally, a dog wash, a BBQ or just a friendly get together - please sign up to participate so people in your area know and can participate and promote responsible ownership with you.
Working together, we can change the image bestowed upon our dogs (and their owners).
Never underestimate the power of a few committed individuals to change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. ~ Margaret Mead

With both the parties conventions nearing soon, beginning August 25 in Colorado for the Democrats and September 1st in Minnesota for the Republicans. We are expecting to hear the status of their running mate choices very soon. It's rumored that Obama will make his announcement as soon as this Friday & August 29th for McCain.
It has been mentioned that McCain has decided to allow Obama to make his announcement first since the Democrats are holding their convention first, not to mention he's looking to take the post convention spotlight off Obama at the same time.
Here is a listing of possible running mates for Obama
- Delaware Sen. Joe Biden
- Indiana Sen. Evan Bayh
- Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine
- Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius
- New York Sen. Hillary Clinton
- Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney
- Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty
- Florida Gov. Charlie Crist
- Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal
- Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman

This is my review of a book that I recently read. I personally consider it to be a very good book. It is a memoir called A Piece of Cake By: Cupcake Brown. Cupcake takes you through her upbringing from how she discovered the body of her mother to how she later learned the man whom she thought was her father truly wasn't. Once meeting her maternal father it didn't take long for her to begin to hate him. It was because of him that Cupcake was placed from foster home to foster home enduring rapes, beatings, starvings and far worst.
Cupcake did probably every street drug imaginable from PCP to heroin, weed, booze & pills just to name a few. Somehow though she managed to get married, hold down several jobs to waking up to find herself asleep & unconscious behind a garbage dumpster, it was then she new she needed serious help & was finally admitted into a drug rehabilitation program.
Despite all the drama and hardships in her life this memoir is indeed a very inspiring one. Never in my life have I cried from reading a book but the ending of this book took me there. It was just that good. Not to spoil the book I will end this by saying the book was a good read and the ending honestly just took the cake, a New York Time's best seller!
I like this authors writing style. It would be nice if she was to actually write another book.

We took the boys out to eat for dinner tonight. We went to CiCi's Pizza an all you can eat pizza buffet. I typically don't care much for buffets, but this is a nice place to go for an family outing.
They provide a variety of pizza's from buffalo chicken, spinach, pineapple, ham and more.... Also they have pasta where you add your own pasta or alfredo sauce in addition to the salad and dessert bar.
Although you are allowed to serve yourself they do have staff standing directly behind the buffet tables. After we got done with our meal we let the boys play a few games in their arcade. They don't have a large arcade though, just a few games.
How much does it cost for a night out at CiCi's a whooping $4.99 for adults $2.69 for children 10 and under, kids under 3 eat free. Free beverages not included in the above prices. (prices may vary by location)
They offer catering and a To - Go menu as well. Overall its a nice place to go at a great value my kids enjoyed tasting the different pizza's and used up many quarters in the arcade. Its a spaciously clean restaurant with a friendly staff. They have several locations throughout the United States.
