To CELEBRATE a PEACEFUL Transfer I have a suggestion.

If everyone who voted for Joe or who thinks we can move forward would display the PEACE SIGN in their yard this holiday season, blue lights or blue tinted would be good if possible to convey DEMOCRACY and Rule of LAW triumphing over whatever the heck these last 4 years were.

I had a friend who made a very simple peace sign for her Christmas display. She took a hula hoop, wrapped a string of lights around it and from the bottom let one part of the string go across at the 4 o'clock and 8 o'clock points then ran the string up to 12 and brought it down to snag the middle of the cross string and made it taut as it came back up displaying a really great and inexpensive peace sign.

We could go red/white and blue to symbolize unity and forgiveness for all those who just got duped and who will as good citizens do their best under new leadership despite any misgivings they might have.

We could set up blue or red white and blue candle vigil peace signs in parks and use drones to take pictures of them. JUST DO WHATEVER WE CAN TO PROMOTE THE IDEA OF PEACE going into the holidays when folks are receptive to that idea.

WE NEED TO HELP JOE bring the country together by reaching out to the world with a united vision of PEACE and JUSTICE for all. Those who have done bad things should be brought to justice, but no need to throw everyone under the bus if we can avoid it.

It's a little something we can do on our own or together and it's like paying it forward, it can brighten people's day and be a reason for hope and a message of forgiveness.

I know some Trump supporters are keying into their worst selves, but I hope there is more to most of them than JUST that ugliness. American's have found ways to pick themselves up, dust themselves off and find a better path for a few hundred years. Maybe this can be another fresh start with a lot of good work on our "TO DO" list.

So it gets really cold at a certain point we don't go above freezing much. Usually in Jan / Feb.

I have seen people use water like you would sand for a sand castle. Put it in a bucket, put a smaller bucket inside and weight it so the water freezes with a bucket shaped center. I guess I could use cooking spray on the buckets.

Then the resulting ice is like a big candle holder. I could put glitter in the water or silk flowers to add a bit of interest and then just put candles or tea lights in them.

By the time it gets cold enough, I'm usually pissed off enough about having to dig myself out of the snow that I forget.
