Voting: Your Democratic Responsibility

A little while ago my sister submitted a photo she'd taken in Edmonton, Alberta, to a local photo competition. As it turns out, it was nominated for voting!

So, I think you should go take a look, sign up, and vote for it. Those who vote and report back to me will receive one free -- delicious -- cookie in the mail*.

You can see the photos here (hers is the b & w photo of the balcony/walkway -- the fifth one down, I think). In order to cast a vote, you need to sign up to the boards, but it's quick and painless. You can register here.

Do it. I know you want to.

(*Pending lawsuit re: the last batch.)

Yours, O Lord, is the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty. Everything in the heavens and on earth is yours, O Lord, and this is your kingdom. We adore you as the one who is over all things. Wealth and honor come from you alone, for you rule over everything. Power and might are in your hand, and at your discretion people are made great and given strength.

(1 Chronicles 29:11-12)
