Jon - Yeah, it's been crazy up here. Yesterday there were thunderstorms, then the temperature dropped and there was hail, then crashing rain. It was amazing.

Hi folks :)

Similarly to what Heather said, it was great on Saturday to be surrounded by similar minded folks. People were kind and enthusiastic, the crowd was completely mind boggling, and the feeling of getting out from behind the screen and into the real world was very satisfying. Heather, I don't know how your travels went but it ended up taking us hours to get to DC (usually a 2.5-3 hour trek) between traffic and long lines at the metro station. I was happy to do it since I was able.

fast forward to today and we have a nor easter bearing down on us... wind gusts as high as 60 mph and heavy rains. I can't wait to see sunshine again, sitting in front of my little daylight lamp to stave off the melancholy.

Hi gang!

Wow, what an amazing weekend for Heather, Jen and the DD for Carol! Extend my previous awed thanks to Heather and Jen to her with a special kudos working local.

GL with the final Heather! Something a little more stable than this particular start-up. Too bad a bright spot is potentially incoming now. Meh, 5 lbs, find your rhythm and that'll be gone pronto. It's always about Freedom of Speech, the most important (IMHO) in our Bill of Rights. An amazing day. Those posting things like rubbish in gutters and decrying so-called environmentalists? Show me the date tag.

As I wrote before, we have to start thinking locally. One party swept both House, Senate and the Executive branch in 2008 by doing so. Apparently they got away from that.

Enough of that.

The rain hasn't really started before commutes, thankfully, but the wind gusts shook my puddle-jumper at lunch (while behind an 8' slope and 5' fence). Judging by the tide this AM and the little causeway on the way out of here we'll be cut off around 9 tonight at the next high tide. We have no intention of going anywhere anyway. Carol- I know it's far away but the video of SoCal with those rains... Is that similar to what you've been experiencing? I'm going to call the San Diego son shortly.

It was great to be with a lot of like minded folks! I feel called to stand up for social justice issues. I think what makes us a healthy nation is we can express our dissent openly and make sure all viewpoints are at least expressed!! Plus, it was just pure fun and joy. :)

It's so awesome that you guys did the March! Thank you. My daughter marched in Santa Cruz and she said it felt really great. She was tempted to fly to DC, but then decided local was just as good.

Good Morning!! Sorry for the late start, but I had to meet with the new boss here. He actually seems like a pretty decent guy. It might be too little too late to keep me here tho. We'll see!!!

Tomorrow I go for my final interview at my hopeful new job. I'm so excited!!!

I've let the winter get to me and have put on five pounds. I need to get those off!!

Have a FUN and ACTIVE day!!!!
