    I always recognize this magnetic force between Michelle and Barack ….I doubt anything could get in between it.

    Oh this is just lovely. Love love love our First Lady and her continued support of exercise and good nutrition. The video was nice and seeing the President with her was sweet.

    Chipsticks DO NOT POST ANYTHING ELSE WHILE I AM TRAPPED FOR THE NEXT 5 OR 6 HOURS IN VARIOUS CLASSES GETTING AN EDUCATION. If you do, I will send Christine O’Donnell to terrorize you by reading every word in her “book.”

    Just Kidding….. no I’m not… well maybe I am….???????…. 😉

      “I will send Christine O’Donnell to terrorize you by reading every word in her “book”.”


      Well, that’s the ugliest threat I’ve EVER received.

      People, there’ll be no new posts until UT gets out of class. None.

      PS Seriously, are there actually words in the witch’s book, I thought there’d only be pictures??

    This is sensational. Just thought I’d share this quote I found that really reminds me of the President and the First Lady. Its by Reinhold Niebuhr. “Nothing worth doing is completed in our lifetime; therefore we are saved by hope. Nothing true or beautiful or good makes complete sense in any immediate context of history; therefore, we are saved by faith. Nothing we do, however virtuous, can be accomplished alone; therefore, we are saved by love.”

        Sue in M, not so long ago I remember UTALib remarking that she and Lisa seemed to have been separated at birth, but for some time now I’ve been wondering about you and I. 😉 Almost every time I read something that clicks for me and get ready to write a response, there you are! A couple of times I have refrained from adding my comment for fear you might think I was stalking you. 🙂 In days gone by when I was able to comment more often it was Theo who seemed to be my twin. Well I won’t put the quote on a message board, but I like it enough to mark it for future reference.

    I’m much younger than our FLOTUS and I need about 3 do-overs before I actually start jumping. Hula hoop, dance, run, and double dutch! Looks like she can do it all and then some.
    Love her! She is simply phenomenal.

        I think you guys already know what I think of our wonderful First Lady. You might get tire of me saying it, but so what? I’m still going to say it. I think FLOTUS is simply the best. I am so proud of her.
