Bernie was here today in Winston Salem, NC. And I went to see.


It was energizing, exciting, huge crowd. Bernie in real life is just as he comes across on TV, and how he has come across to me over all the years past. Credible, vigorous, and determined.
Nina Turner pitched the crowd to a fever and introduced him.







I felt privileged to be there.

***The Contest is filled up. "Repetitions" even had one entry too many***

So sorry about "fresh start"s entry GROWING.
It was the 31st one, and there is no more room. I'm a touch under the weather, and after saying let's enter a few second entries I took a nap and we overflowed.

I'll close down the entries, and have the contest started on time on Thursday morning. By that time I'll feel better.
Thanks to all you guys and my constant nagging we have filled this contest all up.

I'll be very curious to see the votes come in.
