Thank you sooooooooo much again to everyone who donated to Obama/Biden 2012 through The Obama Diary page on OFA – we reached our $1,000 target last night, just a couple of days after setting the page up, which was completely brilliant 😉

Some of you very kindly got in touch today to ask me to up the limit from $1,000 so that they could donate too, so I’ve done that – thank you again.

I’m going to spare you all these reminders about the fundraiser, I’ve just put a link to the OFA page in the sidebar on the right, so if you ever have a spare $10 or so and feel like donating that would be great.

The legend that is Meta also has a fundraising page at OFA – here – which is heading towards $5,000. You’re a star, Meta.


This is for Suzanne:

I’ll post videos from the Poetry night at the White House as soon as they appear on YouTube


See you tomorrow 😉

    Thanks Chipsticks and Meta for the fundraising! Someone please enlighten me; where does PBO get the extra hours in his days? It doesn’t seem humanly possible to get so much done every day, day after day. He is a wondrous marvel. And, he does it all so well. How lucky are we.

    Hey, what’s with this ‘good night’ ‘good night’ already? It’s only 10pm! I’m not sleepy yet! It’s not fair! …. Oh! Chipsticks had a busy day? You have to be up early for work and /or michelling? Oh. Okay. Sorry. I’ll be quiet and go read a little, after all I haven’t been reading much since my blog addiction got out of control.

    *sheepishly* Sorry to be selfish. Good night, everyone, sleep tight and rest well! See you on the morrow!

        Oh ho! 😳 😳 Who would like to drag my “foots” out of my mouth – both of them? My humbler than humblest apologies, Ms Chips. I can’t take it back of course, but you can blame it on ignorance and narrow-mindedness. I narrow-mindedly assumed* that you were in the U S of A, even though you have mentioned Ireland from time to time. I just assumed* that you were now living in the States. I’m even more (and I was already maxed out) impressed with your commitment to our community!

        * Can’t remember who in my life used to say “Never assume. It makes an ass of ‘u’ and ‘me’ ”
        Case in point

        Thank you again for your dedication to this effort! {{Chipsticks}}

    This has been a wonderful day for America. We are truly blessed to have so many who love this country. Sometimes when you listen to the media you wonder if any one loves this country until you come here and you can see how many are proud of what we have starting with our President and the first family. Love you all and good night.

    Goodnight Dear Chipsticks,My son-in-law (Rich) tells me he wrote to you today, and was pleased you answered him.
    He and our daughter (his wife) are really long standing Democratic supporters of our wonderful president..
    We were celebrating his 60 % popularity standings- I hope he is going higher and holding!! Dottie
