        hey Fred totally unrelated, but I saw that you commented about Grey’s Anatomy and Callie and Arizona’s car accident. OMG I have a Grey’s Anatomy partner on this website. woohooooo 😀 😀 😀 Dude I cannot wait for next week’s episode. it’s supposedly a musical but also super serious. I saw the accident coming.. when Arizona kept talking and not quite concentrating, but it was still shocking. Hope Callie and the baby’ll be ok

      I don’t see her, but i just heard she is going to be the commencement speaker at the U. of Ia., the state that gave her husband that great presidential campaign send-off and my alma mater-yea!, Spellman and West Point. A good variety, and I think they also said she would also be speaking at a middle school graduation at Quantico, Va.

      Oh poo—-I could swear our local newscaster said University of Iowa, which is my school in Iowa City, not Northern Iowa. But that’s fine. I’m sure they’re very excited to get her there in Cedar Falls.

    Can we arrange for the archbishop to have Arianna exorcised? The number of evil demons that inhabit that woman cannot even be imagined!

Yes, our First Lady, Vice President, Joe Biden, and Dr. Jill Biden and our great President makes us all proud. I also love how they all seem to have a great relationship. I just love Joe.

    Proud of Obama….I agree with what you said about our President, but what touches my heart more is to see him with hiss his family. To see him with his kids is just special, to see the kind of role model he is as a father and husband is truly special. I just love seeing them as a family
