From Lysistrata to Anita Roddick

So, as I sat at my sewing machine making pillow cases out of old sheets for my mother (who can well afford to buy new ones but old people get that way) so that she can get on her sewing machine and amuse hersef trying to do machine embroidery along their edges, I'm thinking about women advocating for peace.

So, I tooled around the blogroll here at Blog Sisters to see how many of us are writing our hearts out about the problems with the reasons for this war and the problems that waging this war is causing here, there, and everywhere. From respected published Sister writers such as Anita Roddick and Natalie Davis, to the rest of them I've listed below, there are defnitely a lot us who really take this war personally and opt to act, at least in words. (I'm not saying that there aren't men who are doing that as well, but they're not on this blogroll and I don't have time to surf for them because I have to go cook supper for my mother.) I finally gave up looking at each Sister url -- there are just too many. But, here are some who are writing eloquently about their perspectives on war and peace, Constitutional freedoms, and the pain of watching killing done in their names -- just in case anyone feels like checking them out.

If you want to add your url to the list, please do so.

And, as I was checking Sister sites, I discovered that there are more than a few that are either not there at all any more or that haven't been updated for months. So, please check your name in the blogroll and email me corrections for your own or any others that you might know about. Thanks.

There was a pig who lived with [url=http://wowgoldvip.fr/frwowlvl.asp]WOW Powerleveling[/url] her three children on a large,[url=http://www.wowgoldvip.co.uk/service-leveling-uk.asp]wow Power Leveling[/url] comfortable, old-fashioned farmyard.[url=http://www.wowgoldvip.co.uk/service-leveling-uk.asp]wow PowerLeveling[/url] The eldest of the little pigs was called Browny,[url=http://www.wowgoldvip.es]wow gold[/url] the second Whitey,[url=http://www.wow-power-leveling.es/wowpl.asp]WOW power leveling[/url] and the youngest and best [url=http://www.gamcc.com/Archlord-Online/]archlord online gold[/url] looking Blacky. Now Browny [url=http://www.archlord-gold.com]archlord online gold[/url] was a very dirty little pig,[url=http://www.archlord-gold.com/archlord-pl.asp]archlord power leveling[/url] and I am sorry to say spent most of his time rolling and wallowing about in the mud.
