Marriage is a Mess in the U.S.

Did you know? While it is routine for American citizens in heterosexual couples to obtain green cards for their foreign spouses, the Defense of Marriage Act has barred such status for immigrants in same-sex marriages. 
The New York Times ran a story yesterday about the complications and mess that is created by not having gay marriage acknowledged all over the U.S.  IT NEEDS TO BE RECOGNIZED IN EVERY STATE.  Read the article:  Confusion Over Policy on Married Gay Immigrants

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
