The Great American Eclipse**Where will YOU be?


August 21, 2017

Where will you be????

I am lucky enough to be in the path of totality! SW of St. Louis. I told my family members up in Madison, WI as soon as I learned of this event. They are all coming down to experience this amazing phenomenon!!!

I am posting this tonight because i am getting so depressed over all of what has happened since November. They can't take this away or fuck it up!!!!!! (I don't think!!!)

I am looking forward to hearing from other DUers. Those in the path and if anyone will be making special travel to be in the best spots.

I Almost agree with Melania here:


from the article:
Melania Trump talked with patients and their families about “how the gift of nature and the beauties of the outdoors can contribute to the healing process,” according to the hospital.(snip)

I do know the healing benefits of nature. Our local hospital, built within the last 10 years, took this into consideration when building and the entire back part of the hospital faces natural space for the patients to enjoy while there. The morning I left there after my gallbladder surgery I watched a deer from my hospital window.

And I do know the healing powers of the cannabis plant. I have also seen many moving stories of how it has helped children with seizure disorders. That is straight from nature.


The best thing we can do for the health of children now and in the future is to ensure that they have clean water, a food supply free of the overuse of pesticides and that the air they breathe has the lowest levels of pollution. The choice of her husband for the head of the EPA does not seem to feel any of that is necessary.

So, while i think it is nice of Melania to take her time and visit this children's hospital, I hope she can see and understand what her husbands policies are setting up for the children now and in the future.

Well, well, well I learned something new about Sean Spicers wife today!


Donald Trump’s choice for his mouthpiece as White House press secretary and communications director was the hot-headed Sean Spicer, who ruffled just a few feathers last week when he said Americans will see “greater enforcement” of federal law on recreational marijuana.

Spicer’s choice for marriage in 2004 was the booze-lauding Rebecca Spicer. Rebecca Spicer has been the senior vice president of communications & public affairs for the National Beer Wholesalers Association (NBWA) since 2007. The NBWA “represents the interests of America’s 3,300 licensed, independent beer distributors.” snip:

No wonder he was so happy to boast about how the new administration wants to step back up to cracking down on weed. Can't have people using a plant that has killed NO ONE! Even though we are well aware of the health effects of beer.

I am not a beer drinker myself, but I have no problem with folks drinking it (as long as they don't do things like drive while drinking!). I have used cannabis for many years for many reasons, but I don't think we should stop the sale of alcohol.

I thought this was a capitalistic society where everyone could buy and sell freely. This is just stupid. When I worked at the local day care and our enrollment was down, we didn't burn down the other day cares in the neighborhood to get their kids to come to ours.

There are sooooo many conflicts of interest with this administration. I don't think anyone is there for just "We, the people" anymore.
