~PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR MY CREATIVE PHOTOGRAPHY SUBMISSION~
Our word for Manic Monday is PRIDE. Thanks Mo, it's a great word. I had a lot of ways to go so I posted the ones that occurred to me first.
I have great PRIDE in my flag. I took this shot for Photo Hunters around Memorial Day this year. While I have PRIDE in my flag and my heart is with the soldiers who fight over in Iraq, I am AGAINST the war in Iraq and have ALWAYS been.

Of course how could a post on PRIDE be complete without a mention of the novel by Jane Austen, PRIDE AND PREJUDICE.
Pride and Prejudice, first published on 28 January 1813, is the most famous of Jane Austen's novels and one of the first "romantic comedies" in the history of the novel. The book is Jane Austen's second published novel. Its manuscript was initially written between 1796 and 1797 in Steventon, Hampshire, where Austen lived in the rectory. Called First Impressions, it was never published under that title, and following revisions it was retitled Pride and Prejudice.
I finish up by presenting a video by U2
