Flew to and from Ft. Lauderdale

Sneakers for the kids.

Usually dinner out.

5. Do you believe Kerry, when he says that al-Qaeda is only a minor element in the Syrian rebellion?

Maybe, maybe not.

Oh, and Bord, the picture was from the birthday party, in case it wasn't obvious. For some reason, the edit function has died, thus the extra post.

"The shoes (and the dress) look very nice on you, Roll!" -------- Thanks! The dress was a last minute purchase, but I like it.

A perfect example why little snippets of news taken out of context aren't sufficient to understand the complexities of the situation.  Your quote doesn't support the way you framed your question to us.  That's okay.  I'm proud my country is acting.  What is your country doing to ensure the risk of another slaughter of innocents is minimized?

If anyone is not sure which Kerry statement I am referencing, it is this one:

"WASHINGTON — Extremist groups make up between 15% and 25% of the rebels fighting Syrian leader Bashar Assad, but moderate forces are growing stronger as a result of support from regional allies, Secretary of State John Kerry told Congress on Wednesday.

"I just don't agree that a majority are al-Qaeda and the bad guys," Kerry said in testimony before the House Foreign Affairs Committee. "That's not true.""

1. Do you get jet-lagged when you fly? Yes, and badly, as in zonked for days. It was actually one of the reasons why I wanted to move back to Europe. The flights back and forth to see family and stuff were really tiring, especially when we added a jet-lagged kid to the mix. The thought of having to do that several times a year was not attractive.

2. What was the last destination you flew to or from? I think it was Cyprus last fall. That is easy though. No time difference and the flight is about an hour.

3. Describe your most recent shoe purchase. Pair of cream, high-heeled sandals. Originally bought for dd, but I ended up keeping them. I am attempting an attachment, not sure if it will work.

4. How do you usually celebrate your birthday (if you celebrate at all)? Usually we just have dinner out or something. This year I had a proper party though, with about 60 guests.

5. Do you believe Kerry, when he says that al-Qaeda is only a minor element in the Syrian rebellion? technically he may be correct about them "only" being 15%, but if you add in all the other Jihadist branches, I think we are talking about a majority.

1.  No, but I've only flown across country a couple of times, otherwise stayed within the same time zone.

2.  Last flight was just a small plane across the state.

3.  Hmmmm, bought the daughter new boots.  Love that she has freakishly small feet and can still wear shoes from the girl's department!

4.  Dh usually fixes dinner and we have cake with the kids.

5.  My faith in any of them telling the truth is completely gone.

Actually, Secretary Kerry has said the exact opposite.  What is Greece doing in light of Prez Assad's gassing of over a thousand innocents?  Or will Greece do nothing in light of its high unemployment rate?  Higher in fact than the US at the height of our Great Depression.  What is Greece doing in response to the recent gassing by Prez Assad?

1. Do you get jet-lagged when you fly?  Only on the return and only if it's significant flight distance of more than a few hours time change.  For example flying to/from the east or west coast wouldn't give me get lag but flying to/from Europe would.

2. What was the last destination you flew to or from?  Europe, last summer...flew home from Frankfurt, Germany.  

3. Describe your most recent shoe purchase.  A pair of Keens, Mary Jane style and browish leather.  Very cute, imo.

4. How do you usually celebrate your birthday (if you celebrate at all)?  

Entire famliy (parents, siblings) out to dinner.  We do this for all members of the family.

5. Do you believe Kerry, when he says that al-Qaeda is only a minor element in the Syrian rebellion?

No.
