Inasmuch as 30 people will be there, some will not be much interested in politics.

Make your way around the group.

When the subject gets testy, move on to someone who is not getting much attention, and find out what is going on in his/her life.
The day will go quickly, and before you know it, it will be time to go home.

Family is family; life is too short to let open divisions come between family members.

Have to keep self calm, as "things to be done" list looms large,

with not enough progress made and days flying by.
I've begun delegating certain tasks where possible, but still feel the need to oversee the situation.

I like " I'll Be Home for Christmas" nostalgic, written during WWII

Folks, we need to pray for our country.

We've likely got a rough ride ahead.

I'm not going to suggest a specific prayer or even a specific outcome.
Just that we have the strength and will to deal with whatever comes our way, individually and as a nation, without losing our way in anger or hopelessness.
Find support in your church or place of worship and try to support and build each other up.

I'm watching a lot of weather lately. Also,

PBS has some pretty good alternatives at night.

The Democrats need to colonize the low population states which are over-represented

in the electoral college.
A few thousand Democratic voters in those states - Wyoming, North Dakota, etc. - could turn the tide for the Democrats in future elections.

If you can't change the rules, make the rules work for you, i. e., Democrats.

Reminds me of the time in the gynocologist's office, body exposed,

the female doctor asked "How did you get this?", referring to a large bruise on my stomach of which I was unaware.
