Road Rage !

I am still stressed over an incident that happen last Thursday.
I and a friend were on our way to my daughters for a fundraiser.
We were talking and missed the turn, so I went to the next intersection and turned around.
On our way back I was driving about 30 which I think was the speed limit on that road.
A car came up behind me and hugged my tail most of the way.
I hate that..
When I signaled at least a block away from the turn and slowed down, she whipped around me honked and glared at me and proceeded to hit a car coming across the road and spun it around.
At first I felt gleeful, and we chose not to stop.
Now I feel guilty and wish I had stopped and let the other driver know that she was
not watching the road.

I wish I could quit thinking about it so my Blood Pressure would drop back to normal.

C Street part deux

Thanks to D for pointing me to this new Rachel Maddow update of C Street
Tuesday we were out of town attending the funeral of one of my friends Mom's.
Not many of those Mom's left from my youth and Kate was one of my favorites,though she just didn't look natural with out that Brandy water in her hand.
Her daughter Kathy and I have been friends since first grade, I sat with other former classmates from the our old school days
Oh the stories we could tell about those Notre Dame Nuns..
That's for another time too.
In the meantime I didn't watch much TV that day or night so missed this.
The story gets crazier and crazier, especially when you remember that these "Christ loving Nuts" were the most critical of Bill Clinton's peccadillo's.

I had planned a post on another subject, but will save for later.
Meanwhile it is time to speak up against these dregs, so post this or at least go to
you tube and send it to your email list.
Have a good weekend..

C street , Sanctuary for what?

Even though I love cool weather,
I found it was a little too cool to sit on my deck and read this afternoon.
Temps around 60 with a wind sent me inside.

While checking my e-mail I found this youtube clip from Rachel Maddows show.
I hadn't seen it and my blood began to boil as I watched it.
All of these sick so called family values Christian Conservatives need to be exposed.
Many of them screamed for Clinton's resignation and now they
have formed their own little cult so they can have their fuzzie's without anyone knowing about it.
I hope every single politician who ever went through the doors of C Street
is named.
I am anxious to see just who is on the list.

Guess I'll have to pay more attention to Rachel's show from now on.

Franken Victory weekend !

I had a busy weekend, which included attending
the Franken Victory party Saturday night.

Standing in the middle of a mob of people,
staring at backs (I'm 5 feet tall) reminded me of why I quit going to these
But I had to go to this one, and I did get to see many happy faces from the campaign.
Al was great, humble, giving us all the credit for his win,
then promising us he will work every minute for Minnesota and make us proud.
I have no doubt he is going to surprise a lot of people.
Al is not the flighty raunchy,comedian the Republicans would want you to believe.

He grew up in St.Louis Park a suburb of Minneapolis.
His mother was a Homemaker and real estate agent and his father
was a printing salesman.
They made sure he had the best education and he graduated from the prestigious Blake
Academy in 1969, he was a serious student with a sense of humor.
He attended Harvard and graduated cum laud in 1973 with a
bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science.
His interest in Politics was not something that just developed.

He has been well prepared for this new career and he will make Minnesota proud.

Sunday was another long day it involved a wedding Anniversary party in our home town and a friends daughters Graduation on our way home.

Saw many good friends and relived many good memories.

Now back to the old grind, some jobs are never done
and my sneezing today reminds me I have to get out the dust cloth.

Hows your Health?

I am a big fan of Bill Moyers Journal and try to watch the show every Friday night.
Tonight he showed how the health insurance industry had an active campaign to discredit Michael Moore
and his film Sicko.
The show is sometimes repeated so check your local PBS station and try to catch it.
Or later you can see the complete show at

Here is a teaser..

Rambling Sarah !!

I was sitting in a motel in my hometown when I saw this.
I nearly choked on my drink.
I don't think she can ever explain why she is dumping the states problems on to the Lt. Governor.
The thought that she was almost a heart beat away from the Presidency gives me shivers.
Later at a club, my favorite Republican came up to me and said.

"Be kind to me tonight !"

I gave him a hug.
