We’re getting there….

At last, I’ve finally got around to emailing some of the people who have offered to get involved at the blog, and setting them up as ‘authors’ so they can post here.

I’ve started mainly with the people who have WordPress/blog-running experience, just so we can get things moving fairly quickly, I’ll reply to everyone else in the next day or two. Promise.

It’ll take a bit of organizing, but we’ll get there. And I think once everything’s sorted this place will be waaaaay better for it: no more grinding to a halt of posts just because I’m trying to deal with a psychopath ๐Ÿ™„

Again, a million thanks for your patience and support, will update you when we get things going.

Once more, love ya all.

    Just a smidge of a musical break…
    Wondering if any other TOD’ers caught the Showtime documentary “History of the Eagles”?
    Saw it this past Sunday and was completely RIVETED!! Can’t wait to get the DVD!!

    Juts had to share an interesting experience that happened to your truly this past Saturday.
    I was driving on the freeway and this guy passes me, waving a sign that said “Defeat Obama” . I’m like, huh? The election was months ago, get over it. So I laughed. The guy was waving his fists out the window like he had some victory or something. So I laughed harder.

      That is an awesome piece. I hope it is run in all the states. We must work everywhere.

      Thanks, dudette. We have to work every day to remind people of this message. Voting only for the president isn’t enough. Yet millions think their duty is done when that press that button. Some even think that’s all you have to do and don’t even vote the down tickets in presidential election years. Just vote for president and call it a day. This has to stop because the consequences are in our state houses and in the parade of anti-people politicians who appear on tv every day.

    See where Howard Fineman is going with this?

    That’s why I made the comment on the previous thread Re the 47% tape. Because I know it’s going to be used to deny PBO (and his supporters) credit for his re-election.

        Bill Clinton’s record was nowhere near perfect, but it’s clear what Fineman is trying to do here. It’s what Huffpost has been trying to do ever since PBO was elected the first time. He’s trying to cause confusion and acrimony among the Democratic base, liberals, and progressives. He could care less about Bill Clinton, he’s only trying to use him to cause trouble.

        What Fineman should be doing is dealing with the “civil war” going on within his own party, the GOP, instead of engaging in this BS. Yes, it’s clear to me that Fineman is a Republican. Or he does an excellent job of acting like one.

      Fineman could care less about Bill Clinton. He’s only mentioning him so he can do what’s been Huffpost’s main mission since Obama was elected the first time…cause anarchy and dissent among the Left.

      The problem is that’s kind of hard to do when the Right is in a real, full-blown, internal struggle itself. Fineman needs to take care of his own house first before he starts messing with ours.

      Maybe dear old Howard will say Bill Clinton pass Healthcare Reform. It wasn’t POTUS, it was all Bill Clinton. Did Clinton save the Auto Industry, bring this economy back from the brink of collapsing.

    A break from the crazy. This is for anyone who ever took a piano lesson and had the opportunity to meet a favorite performer.


    Billy Joel was recently doing a Q&A at Vanderbilt University when a student asked if he could play โ€œNew York State of Mindโ€ with him. Then, this pretty amazing moment happened. Enjoy!!

    Good morning all. Good morning my dear Chips. Thank you for this place. Hey, with this picture and many others, I think we have a collection enough for a magazine spread. Only question is which one will be on the cover? PBO is so photogenic, no matter how you look at it. He is full of cool!!

    Good morning TOD and Chips. Regarding the video with Billy Joel and the young man–my husband had me watch a video last night (shared on his FB) of Josh Groban going into the audience and finding someone to sing duet w/him. He found a young girl (13, I think). WOW! Much the same as this video w/BJ. I think he was performing in Montreal. I don’t have time to search for it right now, but some of you ‘experts’ should be able to find it and share on Tweeter.

    Chips, I haven’t had a chance to say God Bless and keep you and a huge thank you for all you do for us. In the past, when you have been so busy, I always wondered why you didn’t ask for help from some of our resident experts. I knew folks would come through.

    God bless all of you and thanks from the bottom of my heart! ((((((((((((HUGS))))))))))).
