    her arms are legendary and strong and everything….but look at those wrists! They’re so slim and beautiful. I always think that’s what makes her so damn elegant, her long arms and very slim forearms and hands.

      She has the most beautiful hands: long and graceful fingers, beautiful skin, well-manicured nails…I’ve always admired her hands.

      LOL Sue!!! You said it not us!!! I was just thinking hmmmm it just seems the red states are getting too many of these natural disasters lately even as their governors and representatives deny climate change and denounce government and government “interference” because it’s “socialism”!!!
      Then I hear cries of Obama has not come to visit us and extend government aid to us!!! Where is that big government I hate so much and why can’t I just pull myself out of these monstrous disasters all by my strong, proud self-reliant self!!!

      Much blessings to you Sue!!! Shalom!!!

      Welcome Patricia! I can’t remember how I first stumbled upon this site a few months back but have not stopped checking in ever since that first time. Yes, it is addicting, but wonderfully so! Pull up a seat and take part in celebrating our great President. Pass the site info on, spread the good word, more people need to SEE and appreciate what we have right here, right now, at this moment in history with our 44th President!

    Welcome Patricia! I remember when I discovered this site…..I was one happy girl and still am. One reason I like it is because I know what the President is going to be doing, and I can follow him. Another reason is the absolutely wonderful pictures Chipsticks has! Another reason is the wonderful comments and fun interchanges, and another reason is Chipsticks herself,and how she keeps us going, and keeps this site free of nasty trolls!

    From April 19, 2010:

    “The 23-year-old has enjoyed a hectic few months recently even managing to fit in a trip to the White House to meet U.S. President Barack Obama.

    The visit came about after the First Lady, Michelle Obama, a former boxer herself heard all about Katie’s incredible achievements over the past few years in becoming a 4 time European Champ and 2 time World Champ and invited her to Washington for the annual St. Patrick’s day celebrations at the White House.

    “It was an honour to be invited to the White House and it was great to meet President Obama and the First Lady,” said Taylor. “She did a little bit of boxing when she was younger and like me she used to be trained by her Dad. It was a tremendous experience and I never dreamed that my boxing career would present me with opportunities like that.”
