Saturday night, Pastor Rick Warren hosts the Saddleback Civil Forum with Senators Obama and McCain at his church in California. Civil Forum? The first joint appearance of the candidates is at a CHURCH. Though, they will not be on stage at the same time. Of course I will watch, with a cocktail in hand.

Ok kittens. Today is mother-son canning day. I grow lots of tomatoes, but those are used for sauces and immediate gratification. I am awake at a ridiculous hour for a pilgrimage to the local farmer's market to buy too many tomatoes. Then the day will be spent peeling, seeding, and jarring them for winter use. It should be fun and cocktail hour starts promptly at FIVE!
