Me: That's a lie.
My nine-year-old: No, it isn't. I saw her log into it with her own name.
Me: That's stupid.
My nine-year-old: That's not stupid. Her mom's a teacher, and she teaches a really hard subject. Are you saying her mom is stupid?
My nine-year-old: Dramtic sigh and pouting.
Me: Dramatic sigh and pouting.
Due to the above mentioned conversation about Facebook, I find this series on the Amish especially appealing. That's what cutting out cable and infusing Netflix will do to a girl. Leave her hungry for a simpler life, and turn her into a documentary junkie.

Have you played Can You Survive on $1.25 a Day? It's a short, interactive game which allows you to see the choices 1.3 million people who live in extreme poverty face daily.
- Do you pay for a new stove or remove your son from school?
- Do you continue to send your daughter to work even though her employer is rumored to be involved in sex traficking?
- Do you vacinate your kids or do you eat?

Last thing, I've been talking about home lately. This is one of my favorite former homes, Colorado. I took this picture with a cheap point and shoot camera. That's how amazing Colorado is. You don't even have to try to get a good picture. Postcard images jump through your screen.
I'm sure you've heard about the fires raging in Colorado.
I spoke with a good friend tonight who says it's not a matter of if the the fires hit her mountain community but a matter of when.
