    For millions of people here and abroad, Barack Hussein Obama has been and is: “Our President: ally, hero and icon.” We have been blessed and I am so thankful to have been alive and tuned in to bear witness and to celebrate these historical times lead by such a man.

    GM, TOD ohana.

    Good morning Ms. Chips, Danny and TOD family, I hope all is well with everyone this lovely Tuesday morning. Congrats Ms. Chips on being first to open your lovely viilage for your wonderful residents.

    Sometime back I shared with the TOD family that my mom was very ill. She passed away last Friday November 6th. She’s in a much better place where there is no suffering, but joy and happiness. Thanks to all for your prayers and kind words.

    To all, I hope you have a mellow, smooth and tranquil day today. โค โค โค

    Thank Good that President Obama is still the President of The United States of America. โญ๐Ÿ† โญ๐Ÿ† โญ๐Ÿ†

    If you don’t take time to savor the immense intelligence, fortitude and great wisdom of our President you will have missed that part of history that will never ever be repeated. We are living this right now!. This guy rocks every part of our being! My heart soars every time I watch his determination to break barriers for total inclusiveness. And he does it with love not malice. Like Sundance said to Butch Cassidy-who is this guy?
    Jeebus we are soooooooooo lucky!

    Helmut Schmidt, who served as West German Chancellor from 1974 to 1982, has died aged 96, his office says.

    Mr Schmidt, who was a Social Democrat, was an architect of the European Monetary System, which linked EU currencies and was a key step on the path to the euro.

    He was credited with helping to consolidate the country’s post-war economic boom.

    He is seen as one of the most popular German leaders since WWII.

    Mr Schmidt died on Tuesday afternoon in his home city of Hamburg, his doctor Heiner Greten was quoted as saying by German media.

      For some strange reason I remember this guy, I remember watching him on the news when I was in elementary school. I wasn’t a follower or anything, my old man watched the news every night and he made us watch the news with him and he would make us watch the Sunday morning political shows.
