    Prettyfoot58, I am sipping a cup of a delicious Hibiscus Flower Tea. Deliciously looking at our beautiful President in those sun glasses and our elegant First Lady smiling and making us all proud. They just keep going with their heads up high. I hope POTUS plays golf today.HZ

      Yes…..one of the most important messages the President gives us…is to remain hopeful and to NOT give up or give in…even as he is obstructed at every turn…he finds a way to break thru…extraordinary…I can only imagine where WE the People would be if we were all rowing in the same direction…

    Good morning to the AWESOME and BEAUTIFUL Chipsticks, Danny and TOD FAMILY,


    Wishing you all a very BEAUTIFUL, AWESOME and BLESSED DAY-ENJOY!!!

    Don’t forget to count your blessings, and share with those who are less fortunate; the joy of living is giving, it does the heart good : )

    1. Thank you, Chips.

    2. Congratulations, HZ on winning first legitimately. 🙂

    3. Chipsticks? CHEATERS never prosper and as of now, you should begin the countdown to another spectacular failure of a season for Manchester United. You apparently didn’t learn from last season and your continuous cheating.

    4. Great recap of the week, Chiparooooo!

    5. Our First Family is gorgeous!

    Happy to see our lovely HZ in first place!! Many anniversaries today of important things. My OFA group is tweeting about #CostOfInaction in comprehensive immigration reform and second anniversary of SCOTUS ruling on ACA. #ObamacareIsWorking

    So I’m chuffed. Now you can get BBC radio podcasts on Tune In. Just finished listening to a program about all the nasty things in space just waiting to come down and blow up a city.

      You know I love these!! Surprise..I’m a “Solid Liberal” 🙂 What I DID notice from those that took this is that on quite a few issues…we’re not that far apart, which goes to show you that Americans, as a whole, understand the issues as we do…it’s the MSM that wants to create a divisive country….

    The link below includes a short video clip with a foreign correspondent who does a credible job commenting on the Iraq situation.

    A U.S. official confirmed to CNN that armed American drones started flying over Baghdad in the previous 24 hours to provide additional protection for 180 U.S. military advisers in the area. Until now, U.S. officials had said all drone reconnaissance flights over Iraq were unarmed.

    Using the drones for any offensive strikes against insurgent Islamic State in Iraq and Syria fighters would continue to require approval from U.S. President Barack Obama.
