Today is the 3rd birthday of my youngest grandson, Kellan.
His blonde hair shines when hit with sun light, and has almost a halo effect. His big dark blue eyes always seem to hold a mystery.
He has a smile that can brighten up anyones day. And Im not the only one that feels that way. Every person that comes into contact with him from the time he was born, seems to calm down and smile..all falling in love with him.

Long before the 2012 campaign ended, I was deep in thought on how to keep the essence of this site alive. It could not continue on as a Ron Paul fan boy site - that was clear enough to me.
He had said many times that he was just the messenger. If he were just the messenger, then what was the message? What was the message that could be a daily reminder, contained in the letters P - A - U - L?
