4. 8 AM here

East coast----well, east bank, really (of the Rhein River). I haven't seen anything yet to take the wind out of my sails. I saw some math by John King analyzing the one unknown factor in PA-18--the outstanding absentee ballots. By his reckoning, Saccone would need the win more than 70% of them to beat Lamb. It's possible, but they are from counties where Saccone won from 52% to 56% of the vote. So, while it's possible, the likelihood is extremely small.

7. Yep I think Lamb has squeaked out a win!

Its midnight here. So I got a Rhein river question for you. Is it pretty easy to drive along and see sites? I was wanting to try and do at least two days along the river in a rental car.

9. That's like asking if the New Jersey Turnpike is an easy drive with 6 lanes in each direction

It's a very easy drive, just don't do it when everyone else is doing it.

There are winding riverside roads down from Mainz to Koblenz with just spectacular scenery and towns. Medieval castles on the hilltops and Roman-era vineyards up the steep sides of the hills. Up where I am (Düsseldorf area) it is flatter, and the scenery is less fun to watch (at least you won't have an accident from gawking). But there is still plenty to see and do. Düsseldorf and Köln ("Cologne" ) are great towns for day trips, and if you like archaeology, the Neander Valley (German: "Neandertal" ), has a wonderful museum on the site where THE big discovery was made. It's about a 20 minute drive south of where I live.

15. We are heading straight east from amsterdam and will only have two nights to stay in eastern Germany

So trying to pinpoint where exactly we want to go with such little time. I'm not too worried about hills and traffic. More worried that neither of us can read a lick of German haha. As long as I can get some cool castle pics and get to feel a little of my German roots I will be happy

24. Amazing!

I really wish I had more time to spend there. The plan is to fly into Amsterdam head straight to Germany. Drive south a few days and end up at pinkpop. Head back to Amsterdam and fly to Paris a few days. Fly to London and end up at Stonehenge for summer solstice. Hop over to Ireland and explore then fly home from Dublin.

Does that sound too ambitious for 2 weeks?

30. You're probably asking the wrong person

Remember, I'm in a different country almost every day in a typical work week, so to me that is like a leisurely schedule. However, for vacation, I think I'd prefer to take it a LITTLE easier. I'd also reconsider your decision to fly between Amsterdam and Paris, and then Paris to London. Especially, considering that the airports of Amsterdam, Paris and London are WAY the hell outside of town (different if you're going straight to Stonehenge from Heathrow instead of into town first). Schipol has the best train connections into town. Paris and London are cumbersome, unless you fly into the London City Airport (I never have, since I don't stay in the Financial District).

Look into the Thalys train from Amsterdam to Paris. City Center to City Center, and you get to see some of the countryside along the way. Also, definitely look into the Eurostar (the Channel Tunnel Train) from Paris to London. Again, city center to city center.

Believe it or not, I have never been to Ireland, close as it is. Just never got around to it.

31. Very good advice

We were just going to drive to Paris but my buddy from London said we are nuts haha. If we have to shorten up the trip I think we will throw out Paris all together but I really want to go to the Louvre.
I want to see as much as I can but I also don't want to miss what I'm seeing because we are rushing from place to place

I'm usually up at this hour, but tonight I'm watching breaking news for an exciting change - NBC has yet to declare the winner, though Conor Lamb already made his victory speech.

10. I think so, too, it's all over but the concession - if there is one this time.

But it is interesting to hear all the analysis on this - and Jonathan Alter is still up too!

11. For years and years I worked graveyard shift. Then I retired. ...

Old habits die hard. I often am awake until the sun comes up.

I worry that I may be turning into a vampire. Occasionally I check to see if I can still see my reflection in the mirror. I still haven’t developed any interest in drinking blood but I do like V8. The doctor told me to vitamin D3 because I don’t get out in the sun much.

I guess I am just a creature of the night.

20. When I was on graveyard shift I used to sleep for four hours once I got home...

and sleep a couple more hours in the evening before I went to work.

Occasionally I can break this routine for a short period of time but then I find myself back on the old schedule.

Working the graveyard shift as long as I did is supposed to knock ten years off your life. I’m now approaching 72 and still plugging along. My doctor feels I am quite heathy with the exception of degenerative disc disease and being a candidate for a hip replacement.

I worked midnight to 8 for a summer when I was a kid. Honestly don't think I've slept normal since.

12. Woke early

Usually get up around 4:30 but immediately went to my phone to see what happened. Now watching Kornacki whose energy is exhausting to watch. Should have a call soon enough. CNN just did a nice piece on Stephen Hawking - read some great tweets about his passing but mostly just hanging with my kitty waiting for the votes.

Switched to CNN. More on Hawking - asked what was the biggest puzzle in the universe, his answer was women. That made me laugh. Kinda nice having all this time to get ready for work.

Everything's not copacetic anymore.

It's battle time. I'll give it what I got and do my level best.

I got your back but will need an even younger age group to prop me up lol. I'm always ready to stand up for what's right but we shouldn't have to do it near this much. The pursuit of happiness shouldn't be this hard. Always being smothered by greed. Lets hope our efforts pay off and someday they will get it right.

Ima dope. Promised myself to hit the sack early. How did that work out for me.

I dint expect to retire on a white sandy beach with an umbrella decorated drink in one hand, but dammmmit, never expected this 'climate'.

Still an aggressive 'girl' and I'll put up a fight if need be. [Did I just say that?!🙄]

It's not a whole lotta 'noise' yet until more people wake up and smell the conspiracy/treason. Or at the least, running

When Obama was captaining the ship. It was a nice calm between tropical storm dubya and category 5 hurricane trump...
Well I'm off to dream of white sandy beaches and calm waters.

You mentioned 'prop you up'.

Back in the day, we already used acronyms b4 these kiddos today talk their messaging.

If a buddy nearby came close and leaned on you, you'd say, "Are you a PLP or what."

I wake up, checking what's happening; then go back to bed. It keeps saying 579 for Lamb.

It's 2:09 now, my time.
