A penny for your thoughts

I got an email tonight that went something like this:
Refuse new coins.
I'm married to Brandon, I don't refuse refuse coins, especially since we recently found out that someone used our bank account to fund a trip to Disney. A good trip to Disney. We bought year passes on sale, with gift vouchers from Brandon's company and Brandon stood in line for 2 hours just to get the passes.
Silly us, we followed the rules.
So, to the fabulous family that enjoyed Disney VERY much on our dime/Euro, You're Welcome. One last thing to this fabulous family, thanks to you I got to see the inside of a French Police station, better yet, French Policemen. Thank you, no really, thank you. Not your standard USA policemen. They were fit, very fit, all of them.
Back on track.
It is amazing how quickly I believed it. I even forwarded it.
U.S.Government to Release New Dollar Coins
You guessed it
'IN GOD WE TRUST'IS GONE!!!
If ever there was a reason to boycott something, THIS IS IT!!!!

Then I stopped for a moment and thought for myself (well, I let Google think for me) and found this:

It was just a simple reminder to always stop and think for myself.
Here's to doing that more often.

Now if I would only figure out how to get spell check working again...

Sadly, the internet, which can keep us in touch at such a distance, can also spread lies and garbage faster than some people can have a good time at EuroDisney...

Love you,
