From the last night on the town. Bill with a carriage pulling horse. He was so funny all weekend getting completely distracted by any and all furry objects!! It was really quite sweet. Then Bill with Kid Oakland. We met KO at a party being hosted by Jim Hightower who was very sweet and friendly... Continue Reading →
Even more pictures – Al Gore in the house!
Apologies for being so picture heavy, but that is all I have the energy for at the moment. I suffered from some tummy upset last night (turns our rum is not my friend) so I am really wiped out at the moment. Thankfully the rumor went around that Nancy Pelosi was bringing a special guest..and... Continue Reading →
This Week In Politics – Netroots Nation Day 2!
Heh - had a pretty good built in topic this week huh? My pictures are fewer and a bit worse and we switched to a day full of panel discussions and I have not quite gotten the hang of this camera indoors. Especially under the lighting conditions presented in ball rooms and conference rooms and... Continue Reading →
9:00am Street Prophets caucus run by Virgomusic (MissMusicNerd) and Brillig. Fabulous discussion about the role of the religious left, embracing all religions and atheists, how to counter the religious right movement and just how to be respectful of all. I was (as always) floored by the level of intelligent discussion and use of sophisticated vocabulary... Continue Reading →
It’s a Small World
See the couple at the head of the table? Sweet Prince and I met them in Nov '05 on our second Mexican cruise. I wore my DailyKos shirt to lunch one day and she spotted it and struck up a conversation. Turns out she's Bloomer101 on the site! And this year they made the trek... Continue Reading →
Posting from the air!

Ack! I’m supposed to post!
Being in last day before travel mode, I did not prepare a post for today. I should have taken pictures and written about last night's dinner. No pictures, but it was Bahama Burgers. The ground beef and seasonings were provided - I had to mix them together and form 3 burger patties. Buns and pineapple... Continue Reading →
An unexpected gem
Last night SweetPrince and I had our standing Friday night dinner date. Our original intention was to go to Fidels which is a mexican restaurant where we particularly enjoy the crab burritos, but it is a very popular place and even at 7:45, it was packed and the wait was 40 mins. Plus, the bar... Continue Reading →
Dream Dinner #4 + This Week in Politics
Summertime Pasta. Chicken, penne, capers, onions and a very light sauce that was chicken broth based with lemon zest and some other seasons that I just don't remember! But, it was indeed a very light summery flovred pasta which I paired with some peas and carrots. I got 6 servings of this one so I'll... Continue Reading →
Dream Dinner #3
Southwest steaks. What I prepared there was the spice mixture that I rubbed on the steaks before cooking them. The long grain rice package was part of a promotional give away from one of their food suppliers that was given to me as I left. So all I had to add was the salad with... Continue Reading →
