        Yes, Yes. Chips is going to be so happy. Remember during the 2012 elections, I stated right here with my TOD family that three of my goals were to be first just once, do my first time Fund Raiser, and Chips was so wonderful to us all., cookemom, meta, and amk encouraged me to work on my page and then all of my family help me to way over than what I ever dreamed of. Started at$ 200.00, and amk encouraged me to go on and all of my TOD family were just so beautiful with your donations. Very generous of you all, and I thank each of you for being in this space during this time, and with this great President, Barack Obama.. Ended up with$ 4400. plus. Blessed Honor.

        Then I wanted to help get President Obama re-elected. Now to be first on our wonderful and beloved 44th President’s 52nd Birthday!! Wow, I am so happy. Declare your hearts goodness for others and you will even get some of your desires in life. I will be sipping my protein drink and later will lift a glass of red in honor of our great President of the United State. Half of the pie is almost gone. Do not tell my doctor or my brother. Promise? What a day. () Love you all so much.HZ

        Hi my wonderful donna dem. Yes, I did. You all give me so much love and hope. I was bragging about my TOD family yesterday while my god niece and her two sons who I babysat, was in the room when they both were born. Now one is a sophomore at Davis, and one is a senior in a so. ca. school. They were just babies. I was so happy to see them. They were so interested in hearing about what President Obama has done for the college students and how we are working to help all of our young men.

        We had a blast. I even showed them how I work out with my dances especially the new Slide. They were rolling on the floor with laughter. The young people here as well lift my spirit so much. Thank all of my TOD Family. HZ

          HZ, the president is so lucky to have you on his side. Your love, good wishes, prayers and hard work are worth more than a boat load of GOP millionaires. Not to mention that we’re lucky, too. ((((hugs)))).

            Jackiegrubacher, ((((((((((((((( I love you back also)))))))))))))))))) He is also very blessed to have you, my dear one. He knows that we here at TOD have his back and that we are all working together to help him. That is what keeps him going, not to mention our beautiful FLOTUS, our First Daughters, and his very close and dear friends. When he is surrounded by our love, our prayers, and our hard work. he will make it through this journey.

      That is so cute. Do you know I have three Thai Temple rubbings like the ones above their couch above my couch? Different frames though. One on left looks exactly like one of mine; others are similar. πŸ˜‰

        Yay, CarolMae!

        • August 4, 2013 at 3:56 pm

          I thought it was cool. Do you think they still have theirs? Mine were gifts from family. Sister in law is Thai and what do you know my son married a young woman who is half Thai! She grew up there until she was 18 and then family moved to US. She speaks perfect Thai and she doesn’t speak English with Thai accent. Her mother was a good teacher with a smart daughter. πŸ˜€ She lived in NW Thailand.

        Yes we do get our checkups and other additional services that we never got before unless we had a huge co pay. This has been a big plus for me. I keep informing people here in our building and around my neighbor hood about the coverages we have gotten and what will be happening in 2014. I work part time kind of for a small business and we had some additional information sent to us through Quickbooks (Intuit). Amazing, I was really surprised.

      Ick, dudette. what a downer for the president’s day. The rest of that tweet reads…” and I will do my best to screw up your presidency every day I am in the Senate because you know…I hate you and I’m not that fond of people, either, esp. in PA.”

          Thanks Linda and 99 – you savvy guys ;-). I tried to use my post code with the hope of an invite to a welcoming party when either POTUS/FLOTUS comes to town -LOL. Was actually a tad shocked because of the extent of their database I had expected it to pick foreign addresses up. Oh well 90210 it is.

      Oh, Dudette, thank you so much for this video. This was greatly needed today by a friend I sent this to. You are the best at finding stuff that is so appropriate when I know you don’t know how much it is needed. Thank you, thank you!!!!
