So, apparently, Vanilla Ice owns a goat, as well as a wallaroo. Their names are Pancho the goat and Bucky Buckaroo respectively. The Palm Beach Post has all the info on these animals. Of course, no one would have known about Pancho the goat if he hadn't escaped the compound, only to be later claimed by Mr. Van Winkle.

Wow! Daniel's parents came to visit and brought an amazing copy of Manet's Bar at the Follies Bergere. Daniel's mom painted it herself, and she says it only took a few weeks!

This is the original:

The painting is absolutely beautiful - I can see why it's been Daniel's favorite for a long time. His mother joked that the bar matches the top of our fridge, and she's right:

This photo is quite out-of-date; we have at least 2x that now...plus a beer fridge.

I was drinking too - iced tea, since I was with my parents. As the map turned red, I wondered how much more blood will be shed for this perverse administration and how much longer can we ask the world to pardon Americans and blame only our leaders. After all, it's a democracy.


Goatland drinks to evil as Bush wins re-election... 

The evening of November 2nd brought Goatland together.

At 7 PM, Julie returned home from work, declaring, "I have one hour to
become an educated voter!" Jon and Barnali rallied together, offering
their personal opinions on the various ballot measures, and pulling up
Steve's election matrix containing the various political parties'
positions on the different oppositions. At 7:40 PM, Jon rushed Julie to
the polls so she could get her ballot in before the polls closed!

By 8 PM, all of Goatland except Bree (who was away in Salem) found
themselves gathered around the television. The evening began with
optimism - there was much hope that Kerry would pull through. Then, one
after another, the networks called Florida, CNN being the last to do
so. As the evening wore on, updates from Ohio slowly lowered our
spirits. Finally, a sleepy Barnali heard Daniel say that Fox had called
Ohio (she thinks). By 11 PM or so, Goatland has resigned itself to a
Bush win - Daniel brought out the vodka, and led the house in drinking
to evil.

Damn. It's going to be a scary four (more) years.
