            Oh, HZ, thank you dearest, I knew you are close to me, I can feel your energy, and yes, thank you, keep me there in the Light. Daughter has two days in LA, sorting out some things, then home. Her room is all ready, so welcoming and cozy, and soon to be split all into boxes and bags! It will be a poignant time, as she was not quite 2 1/2 when we moved in here, now 27 on Sunday and here to say farewell!! A fascinating journey…. Much love to you, {{{{HZ}}}}

    I keep hearing the gender breakdown on the Virginia turnout, and maybe itโ€™s me, but I donโ€™t think anyone should be surprised that white women in Virginia voted for the Cooch despite his views. Clearly, if womenโ€™s rights had been a concern, McDonnell would never have won the Governorship. His views toward women and womenโ€™s rights were well documented so no one should have been surprised when he became transvaginal.

      In truth, my surprise is that media folks make such a repeated to-do about the gender &/ racial breakdown for election wins. What does it matter (as news) once the tally is in and the winner decided? I can see where it matters to the people campaigning or running the campaign, but IMO it seems a bit of potentially divisive info as general news.

        I look forward to the day when there will be no need by anyone to differentiate as to skin tone. That is the goal, right? I hope it happens long before circumstances settle the matter, when everyone is some shade of brown, making the skin shade notations unnecessary and extinct.

      You’re right FayPax. During the Presidential campaign, I did some canvassing in a certain part of VA – and a nice Republican lady (who was not going to vote for PBO) told me point blank that she was not interested in any *women’s issues* like birth control, equal pay, wellness screening, or any of that. Her biggest concern for the 2012 election was that mortgage brokers were losing money under PBO in ways that they weren’t before.

      We bid the nice Republican lady a pleasant afternoon, adieu, and were off to the next person on our list.

    …..Two-thirds of voters support giving states the option to expand their Medicaid programs for low-income, uninsured adults. That majority spanned the ideological spectrum on an issue that Texas lawmakers ducked last session, opting not to expand that coverage.

    Three-quarters of Texas voters like the idea of tax credits for small businesses that offer health insurance to their employees. Nearly as many โ€” 73 percent โ€” support creation of health care marketplaces where small businesses and people without health coverage can shop for it.

    Prohibiting insurance companies from denying coverage because of pre-existing conditions has the support of 76 percent of registered Texas voters, and 61 percent, led by Democratic and independent voters, said they would support increasing the Medicare payroll tax on upper-income Americans…..

    Anyone have a suggestion? This letter was in my Inbox…

    Good afternoon,

    For decades, many people have reported various unacceptable practices in the debt collection industry. Today, weโ€™re announcing that we would like to hear from the public as we consider what rules are needed. We want to ensure that all players in this industry are working with correct information, that consumers are fully informed, and that consumers are treated fairly and with dignity.

    Weigh in now: regulationroom.org

    Although you can submit comments formally in response to the notice, we want to make it easier for consumers and small businesses to tell us what they think about debt collection practices. To do that, weโ€™ve partnered with RegulationRoom, operated by the Cornell Universityโ€™s eRulemaking Initiative, where you can provide your comments in an interactive and intuitive way.

    RegulationRoom.org is not a government website. Itโ€™s operated by law students and staff at Cornell Law School, with the goal of making it easy for people to submit comments to government agencies. They are working on removing barriers to public participation, and we are excited to be partnering with them again.

    I welcome your comments on debt collection practices.

    We will read and consider them as we consider consumer protection rules for the debt collection market. Now is your chance to have your voice heard and give us your input at this important step. I hope youโ€™ll share your thoughts.

    Thank you,

    Richard Cordray

    Ok, I’m officially ready for Christmas music. And by Christmas music, I don’t mean Kelly Clarkson penning some god-awful ode to the holiday. I’m talking Christmas songs from the classic American songbook, carols, and sacred music.

          Come on back; this is no known language – can’t you tell? It was simply silliness popping into my head. My grandmother used to say ‘The devil finds work for idle hands to do’, and it would seem he finds silliness for idle minds too. ๐Ÿ˜‰

          Ebonics, eh? Hmmmm. I have recently actually been contemplating whether or not I want to try picking up a new language.
