Everyone is feeling the stress of these last few days...I am, too.

Here's what I do to help myself calm down. I remind myself that there are basically two kinds of things in our world: things we control; and things we have no control over.

Worrying about the things we have no control over is useless spinning of our wheels. It only makes us crazier than we were...

And the things we have control over? Get out there and work on those.

Lose the rest.

My two cents........

Peace out.

Thank you for these quotes; they are truly eye-opening. And appalling.

How dare these men burden us with the myth of Eve?

Eve the temptress?

We hold up half the sky. We bear the children (if and when we choose). We do the world's work as well as bring up its children, usually without complaint.

Anyone who would deny us our rights in all things is horrifyingly wrong-headed about us.

An incident at my gym today...

I was wearing my Obama 08 t-shirt with my sweat pants during my workout this morning. It's a nice one, navy blue with stitched letters and the Obama symbol.

Next to me, on the recumbent bike was an old man. When I was getting ready to finish my ride, he turned to me and this conversation began:

"Pardon me, but I don't think that t-shirt is an appropriate one to wear to the gym."

"Oh really? Well, I'm sorry, but I think it is."

"Well, I have freedom of speech too." WTF?

"Of course you do. I would never deny you that right." And then I walked away.

Obama looks and sounds presidential...

Calm, in control, full of pertinent facts, lucid, great.

I could not be prouder of him!

Some of you may remember that I hoped to talk to the President Wednesday night.

It didn't happen.......I didn't even get through. Disappointed doesn't even begin to describe how I felt...


I was ventilating about it on facebook, and my good friend DFW said he would see what he could do...This is what happened:

Well, I didn't get to talk to the President, but close enough! I got a call from one of the folks who works for the President and who is part of the campaign outreach. We talked for nearly 10 minutes, and covered a raft of topics.

I told her that I thought he had done really well in the second debate, complete with a total grasp of the facts. And I specifically mentioned how well he put Romney down, with control and yet with fire. Truly impressive.

On the other hand, I did mention that I want Obama to stop compromising with the Republicans. I reminded her of how Boehner and McConnell stated publicly that they were determined to make Obama a one term President, and that they were doing their best to do just that. I said I wanted him to be stronger and more forceful in his next term.

And I did mention DU... It was a very cool phone call!

What would You ask the President?

I just got an email from President Obama, inviting me to participate in a phone call Wednesday night.

I might have an opportunity to ask a question...

I cannot think properly right now...

Perhaps all of you can help...

How about it?
