        Hello NCLB. Thanks for asking. I am doing fine. Thanks for the prayers. I am in need of them coming up on March 4th and March19th. Dental work finally being done. I have a great dentist, but I have always been nervous about my dental work. However, I am going to be strong.

        How are you doing, my dear NCLB? I hope you are healing nicely and are also getting sufficient rest as well.

        Great news!! I am having a quiet day of enjoying the fragrant candles that are burning in my home in celebration of being able to be grateful for the acts of love from family, a chorus of dear friends, and the loving gratefulness within my space. My joy to accept the gift of life to live, love, and enjoy great food and friends is a beautiful gift of grace from the Earth. Now I am just grateful to live more, love more, enjoy great food more, and share with friends more.

        So, I sign my Valentine’s Day card with: Grateful to be in a space where pillars of happiness in my life allow me to say, I love you my family, my friends, and my TOD family. So many new and beautiful people have entered my space since the long hard working days/years of this beautiful TOD family went through to bring so much love and so many great friendships out of the election of a beautiful soul in a man who we now love and respect as our 44th POTUS. That is some powerful love.HZ

        O/T: To our LL:
        LL, I did not get the opportunity to say to you: Keep the missus in every corner of your home with books marked with the title:” My Love, My Joy, My Happiness, Our Life Blissfully Enjoying.” LL, lots of happiness to you and the missus. HZ

    Vc, how about a slice of Red Velvet cake or Red Velvet Cheesecake? Just saying. Did you see our POTUS giving us a wink? I’ll take that.HZ

      You can have both my slices if you are willing to trade your PBO wink, HZ….or Hopef.

        Okay, Vc. Since he is in the neighbor in the flesh, I guess I cannot be selfish. I will give you the wink. He looks good in his casual with Gov. Brown and our two wonderful Senators, Boxer(my fav) and Feinstein.
        So I will share., vc. {{{{{{{ POTUS wink, our cake, and POTUS in person visit to Cali.]]]]]]]]]hz

      They would – if the media and the RW politicians told the truth – I am somewhat in shock on seeing the political ads against health care – no truth in them whatsoever – yet if I was bombarded with such ads – would I believe them?

      Dontcha just love how the Obama match without being all ‘matchy matchy’?

        February 14, 2014 at 7:07 pm

        Yessss! You noticed it too? I’ve had my eyes on it since the 2008 red/black victory appearance, and now that you have forced me to say it out loud, I get quite a quiet chuckle from it every time. I’ve sometimes wondered if the ladies are consciously matching or not. I remember one Sunday when it looked like they had switched shoes, with their shoes matching each other’s outfit ‘perfectly’, while at the same time complementing the outfit of the wearer. I know, I know – it’s bizarre how the little things the O ladies do charm me/us. :grin: :grin:

        • February 14, 2014 at 7:16 pm

          not bizarre at all, vc! it’s only bizarre, and frankly unforgiveable, that EVERYone is not always as charmed as we are. no accounting for good taste and all that : )

            February 14, 2014 at 7:27 pm

            :grin: You mean we are normal, Kathleen? I don’t know – the hours I spend on line being charmed would have been considered a grave waste of time by me, in my previous life. :grin: :grin:

        Ma’am, if you’re saying that this isn’t the height of fashion, I shall have to have words with you!

          This puts me in mind of that family picture of the Romneys when the females were all wearing the same dress, or whatever. That kind of matchy-matchy makes me think they got a bargain by buying the material in bulk. Or in this case, got the shirts ‘off the rack’ – last of the line, or something similar. There’s matching (like this), and then there is classy matching, which the O’s do unconsciously or consciously.

      JER, you are such a treasure, a true valentine all year-round!

      Absolutely LOVE the local color you bring to this blog when POTUS is out of town.

      Aside: for those wondering, check out how the camera crew are dressed in Fresno — it’s truly been Springlike in Cali this week, after a total of one week of Winter (last week — sprinkles and marine influence but no rain where I am).

      If you’re not on the President’s advance team, you certainly should be! Very grateful for the tweets and links you post.

    NYC for me, baby!

    found this while trying to find another quiz i took a couple of months ago – something like what state should you live in based on your politics. i very pleased it put me in Vermont. anyway, now i can’t find it. sound familiar anyone? (not the one from yesterday on buzzfeed – which had me in PA. no disrespect, but huh?)

    Happiest of hearts and flowers day to everyone!!

    President Obama is not letting congressional gridlock slow our economic growth.

    Here are the executive actions President Obama has taken to support middle class Americans (There’s a short video but didn’t know how to separate from link as I have no mp4)

    Oh! Lucky MP! so for my valentine greeting, I get a begging email from Alan eff’ing Grayson?? Quoting VP the Magnificent Joe Biden… nice try Grayson. I’ve decided to pitch some of these jokers into my Spam file for a while.

      Happy Valentine’s Day, MP. You made me laugh with your comment très à propos vis-à-vis Alan Grayson. He is something else. Although I prefer to deal with him than any teabagger, but he upsets me every time I see or hear him on TV.

    Also in case you were wondering, a comparison between Sochi Russia and San Francisco USA temperatures.

    Check out this map, a confirmation of higher than normal temps in the West. The article mentions that Alaska has had higher-than-normal temps — see last tweet, which I posted earlier this week.

    Jan high temps in Valdez AK averaged above-freezing on Polar Vortex days in lower 48 (see right-hand chart in tweet):
    I – Jan 5-7
    II – Jan 20-21
    III – Jan 27-29

    As I look at the feed from CA, I’m in awe of the vastness of this country and how long it would take to traverse on foot. Yet it is done everyday electronically. It’s a shame that some will not bother to see or know the majesty that I see. – smh (forgive the musing of an old man)

    Making the World Safer from Pandemic Threats: A New Agenda for Global Health Security

    Today[Feb 13/2014], I [Lisa Monaco] joined Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and representatives of more than 25 nations, the World Health Organization, the World Organization for Animal Health, and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations to launch the Global Health Security Agenda, an international effort to enhance our ability to prevent, detect, and respond to outbreaks of infectious disease threats.

    This is not just a health challenge – it is a security challenge as well. Infectious diseases have the potential to cause enormous damage in terms of lives lost, economic impact, and ability to recover, just as with nuclear, chemical, or cybersecurity attacks. In today’s interconnected world, they emerge and spread faster than ever before. These threats know no borders, and no one country can address them alone……

    African migrants on the shore of Djibouti city at night, raising their phones in an attempt to capture an inexpensive signal from neighboring Somalia—a tenuous link to relatives abroad. Djibouti is a common stop-off point for migrants in transit from such countries as Somalia, Ethiopia and Eritrea, seeking a better life in Europe and the Middle East.
