About Me

Female. Retired. Wife-Mom-Grandma. Approx. 30 years in broadcasting, at least 20 of those in news biz. Taurus. Loves chocolate - preferably without nuts or cocoanut. Animal lover. Rock-hound from pre-school age. Proud Democrat for life. Ardent environmentalist and pro-choicer. Hoping to use my skills set for the greater good. Still married to the same guy for 40+ years. Probably because he's a proud Democrat, too. Penmanship absolutely stinks, so I'm glad I'm a fast typist! I will always love Hillary and she will always be my President.

Hell, so do I!!!

So why doesn't HE put country before party - and start pushing impeachment?

Welcome to DU, richsonpoordad!

Depends on who the 3rd party candidate is.

I will always be grateful to Ross Perot for keeping George the II from a second term in 1992, and then Bob Dole from taking the White House in 1996. Both times, that helped Bill Clinton win, because Ross Perot created a "giant sucking sound" of votes away from the conventional republi-CON candidate.

BOOM-BOOM-BOOM-BA-BOOM!

Awwwwwww...

Lordy, do I get that. Today (Friday) is the one-week mark.

DAYUM this one was hard. And Iíve lost quite a few beloved pets in my life. Loved them all. Heartbroken at every passing. But DAYUM, this one was crushing.

You have all my empathy and moral support in your own loss. Just know that you certainly donít grieve alone. Iím right there with ya. I suspect there are loads of others here in the same boat.

You've never steered any of us wrong, catbyte.

I think these warnings of yours should be taken TREMENDOUSLY seriously.

And yes, we absolutely should, indeed MUST, be ready for any asshole reaction/response that he might pull.

Is there ANY way to take his twitter account away? He uses it to incite and inflame all the worst among us - ideas, prejudices, AND people.

I know exactly what you mean, amerikat.

Don't apologize, MontanaMama.

Iím still all chopped up since Goldie, our 16-year-old ďshepherd-somethingĒ headed off to the Rainbow Bridge. Last Friday. So it hasnít even been a whole week yet. Iím like you in that I find myself thinking - ďgee, a week ago she was still here...Ē and ďlast week at this time we were about to take her out for her evening Ďconstitutionalí.Ē

Iím still a mess, pretty much. Iíve lost other cats and dogs but this one - this one hit me hard. Melancholy as hell. Itís good that you posted about Kiwi, and eventually Louis too. They really are our beloveds, too. Visiting angels for sure. Thanks so much for sharing their stories with us. And lots of DUers will read your post and know about YOUR visiting angels and how much these little critters mean to you.

Many soft but strong pairs of shoulders get shared at these times. Youíll find comfort and sympathy, and empathy. You may even find youíre turning around and helping somebody else here when itís his or her turn to grieve.

You do not mourn alone. DU will buoy you up. Sure worked for me (again) last weekend. This is a wonderful community. And itís here for you right this minute.
