Was inspired to make a flag out of it partly due to my US flag collaboration adventure and partly because someone in the Jewish Studies dept where I subbed on Friday has a flag in their office that has the Star of David 30 degrees off! This really bothered me for some reason.

Today's Gratitude Item: An extra half hour in the day! This was due to the fact that my loving father woke me half an hour earlier than usual to go walking as he is swamped at the office and wanted to catch the *very* early ferry. Fun fun fun.
