      Congrats on 1st Carol. Very disappointed in the Ball Coverage. Out of all CNN at least is showing some. I have CSPAN on re-watching the day on my other TV in the living room. I love the music. The parade was great on CSPAN. No talking all parade. Just want to see some dancing already.

        Try the Pentagon Channel. DJ is jamming, however, my military sisters & brothers a standing around chit-chatting. I’m up partying over here. Each song he plays I shouting “that’s my jam!” At the moment, I’m grooving to Luther Vandross’ “All My Love.”

    are these two balls- the only ones? No live music at the President’s Ball? Maybe I’m missing something as I only have internet access – no tv.

    • 30 Bobfr (@Our4thEstate)
      January 21, 2013 at 8:29 pm

      They have had live performances at both, sheri, streaming online – but at the moment only background music for both. I think there are other celebrations but these are the two the President & First Lady are attending. Both are located in the DC Convention Center.

          January 21, 2013 at 8:36 pm

          I do, as well, LL. Something about his toast to the President earlier today gave me a sense of how much he deeply appreciates, dare I say, loves the man. And, he knows all too well the #InaugurationInsurection against PBO. So, to move the Nation #FORWARD he knows what he must do.

  142. January 21, 2013 at 9:03 pm

    Look at that Obama, clapping at the soldiers, just like Kim Jong Un does. I told you he was a socialist North Korean Kenyan Manuchurian candidate!

  143. January 21, 2013 at 9:04 pm

    Who’s dress is that? I’m guessing Rachel Roy or Naeem Kham, maybe.

  147. January 21, 2013 at 9:04 pm

    And CSPAN is opening up the phone lines. This is where I check out.

    Rachel just told us that the designer is Jason Wu……again.

    Alina Cho on CNN says the FL’s gown is Jason Woo.

    blah – cspan is about to “open the phonelines” – how to spoil a good thing – I might have to watch msnbc cause most of the others don’t let the outside world in.

    Then again I could do my chores – hahahahahaha

  151. January 21, 2013 at 9:05 pm

    OMG, that was the SWEETEST thing. FLOTUS is STELLAR. WOW.

    They are saying the gown is by Jason Wu. I can only say I’m surprised she didn’t pick someone new. But the dress is beautiful.

    Loved the color of Michelle’s dress. An orange red or a red orange? Elegant and flowing.

    Michelle’s shoulders are beautiful. So toned and luminous. Can you say cocoa butter?

    After watching that dance at that moment, there can’t be dry eyes (or drawers) in the house. But that’s jmpo.

  165. January 21, 2013 at 9:12 pm

    I really like the dress but I would like to see it in a Pete Souza pic.

    The song ‘Carry On’ playing in the background is from one of my new favorite groups FUN.
