      Still holding out hope for a nuclear deal that we, our allies, and Iran can live with and that the GOP will gnash their teeth in impotent frustration as the United Nations approves it.

    Good Sunday, Chipsticks…TOD Family!

    GM TODville, happy-first-Sunday-of-Spring to everyone. 🙂

    Congrats, GGail on #1, and thanks for alerting the village…

    Happy BD, “oh quiet one,” hope your day is splendiferous, and glad you’re spending a bit of time soaking in good wishes from TODville, who love your banter with “even amk.”

    LOVE the photo of PBO with Nancy-Ann DeParle — his expression says he’s really listening, unlike some men who tower over a woman speaking with an expression that reads “Jane, you ignorant slut” (original SNL reference).

    PBO really is blessed with dynamic expressions that fully capture the moment — all his other expressions on this page are pitch-perfect too.

    And of course, FLOTUS is stunning beyond words at the El Salvador official dinner.

    Here’s a bit of levity for you city slickers…

      “Jane, you ignorant slut”

      Good morning arapaho & thanks! I’m happy that we are all able to gather together & celebrate one of our family member’s birthday 🙂

      I saw the news report on the little orphan lamb. Some people need to get to the zoo more often- sheesh! 😀

      Yes, POTUS makes everyone feel important and what they are saying is worth listening too. One of the many reasons we love him & FLOTUS too!

      She has truly done us Proud on her recent trip.
