Magic Margot Shoebox is a collection point for all that I hold dear - and that's a lot. My recent inspiration is Don Floyd's new blog thecaptainandthomasine.

The original title of my blog "Chihuahuas for Change" popped into my head two years ago when I was looking for a place to "store" all the information I accumulated on Sarah Palin. I've since dumped that information as others have done a far better job researching and accumulating.

Life is about change and since I have darling Libby the chihuahua the title seems to still be fresh.


One can pay back the loan of gold, but one dies forever in debt to those who are kind.

Do your own research.

I told you this is a shoebox and we all know that we simply put stuff into a shoebox in no particular order. That's how things are going to appear here. When something whaps me over the head you will be the first to know.

Right now, I want to tell you about my favorite blog in the whole wide world - Margaret and Helen. Hope you go read their post called "I can see November" - while there note their statistics. A grandson set this site up and it's been around the world several times. Margaret and Helen have been friends for over sixty years and counting.

Don Floyd and I have been friends for more than thirty years and counting. We first became pen pals in the late 70's. We are cousins and share a passion for genealogy. My major project this year was helping Don get his book "The Captain and Thomasine" published. Will give you more details in later post.

Dear President Obama:

I am sixty-eight years old and desperately worried for the future of our country.  Above you see a picture of my two children and seven of the eight “kidlets” they have produced.  I know your family is just as precious to you as mine is to me.  In fact, your family is precious to me as well. 
When I saw you give the keynote address at the convention that nominated John Kerry, I knew you were destined for greatness.  You still are, and it’s time to take action.  It’s been obvious to me for some time that there is a subversive element in our culture seeking to undermine our country.  Recent articles by Jane Mayer in the “New Yorker” coupled with the two recent (enclosed) editorials by Frank Rich have made it crystal clear what is happening.  I’m sure you are aware of the phenomena, but doubt you realize the seriousness of the situation.  Mr. Rich’s final sentence in today’s editorial says it all.  Please stand up and fight Rupert Murdock and the Koch brother’s attempt to hijack our country – it’s for your children and mine.
Lastly, the vitriol and hatred spread by Sarah Palin is backed and bankrolled by Rupert Murdock.  I’ve followed Sarah from the moment she was nominated and in my opinion everything she’s ever said is untrue including the story that she gave birth to the Down syndrome baby. (I would be happy to discuss this further – or wait for Joe McGinnis’ book due out in February.) Our press has failed us miserably on this issue.  Why? Money.
Our country is being torn apart by powerful men exploiting people disaffected by the economic crisis and stalemated war brought on by a previous administration.  It’s time for you to have a “Fireside” chat with the American people – in short you need to get back on the campaign trail in small towns and reconnect with the citizens.  If you don’t do it, the likes of Murdoch, Koch and Palin will.
The same elements that tried to bring President Clinton down are hard at work attempting to do the same to you.
