Go outside and take a look at Jupiter and the Moon tonight

Here is what they looked like from our deck in Chapel Hill a couple of hours ago.


One more Dem will be returning to Congress from NC after barely squeaking by

the Republican attempt to re-district him out of office.

Two tensely watched political races got a little closer to the finish line Friday night. Results show that Democrat Mike McIntyre will return for a ninth term in Congress, barring a recount that changes the outcome.


Complete, unofficial results show McIntyre defeated Rouzer by 655 votes out of more than 336,000 cast in 12 counties, including Johnston, Brunswick, Cumberland and New Hanover.

The margin is within the 1 percent needed for Rouzer to ask for a recount. Election results become official when the State Board of Elections certifies them.


Both Rouzer and McIntyre have been in Washington, D.C., this week. McIntyre’s camp said he was returning to work. Rouzer was taking part in congressional orientation and was part of a photo shoot for congressional freshmen.

And the family political feuding heats up...check this

My nephew posted this photo of his 3 1/2 month old son on fb saying it needed no caption.
I posted that was what my great nephew thought of Hurricane Sandy (this was last Monday night)


Some of you may know I blocked my sister-in-law's e-mails in 2008 because I got really fed
up with the right wing BS she'd send around--not fact checked--and even said once she
didn't care about history or facts, she just agreed with a (bigoted) opinion. Well, we made up
to the point that I, with reservations, responded to a friend request on fb a couple years ago.
It didn't take her long and I un-friended her and re-blocked her e-mails. She is the baby's grandmother.

So, just now her sister put up--wait for it--" My sentiments exactly (baby's name),if Obama wins again !!!!!!

OMG! I'm waiting to see whether my nephew will take her post down, respond to it, or just leave it alone.
He is a Democrat (both his parents are Republicans).

This woman--little Mrs. Christian--read Corinthians 13 at my niece's wedding (aunt of the baby) this summer.

How is it that these professed "Christians" can be so dense? So hypocritical? Love...my a$$...unless it's someone who
looks a little different than you.

Wow. I'm floored.

Anyone else with a story to share?
