The week in review: The Blue Wave

The Democrats took over the majority on the House of Representatives last Tuesday. They gained more than thirty seats. We'll see if they use this advantage to govern or push to their agenda...meaning impeachment. It could go either way.
Another week. Another bizarre week in Washington. They even took the strange to other parts of the country and overseas, Here’s a quick look at the cray cray: Type your email address in the box and click the “create subscription” button.

Signs for an election day in Lakeview

The first sign is for J.B. Pritzker. He's the Democrat running for Governor. You would think our current Governor, Bruce Rauner would care enough to put up a sign. Maybe he's given up?
It’s a great day. Election day in America. The opportunity for the people of this country to make their voices heard. I live in the Lakeview area of Chicago. North side….home of the Cubs…very Democratic…except for the Cubs. There are two polling places within a mile of me. I decided to check them both out... Read more »

    My so called friends think it's time to edit this section. After four years, they may be right, but don't tell them that. I'll deny it until they die! I can't believe I've been writing this blog for four years. It started as a health/wellness thing and over the years has morphed to include so many things that I don't know how to describe it anymore. I really thought this was going to be the final year of the blog but then Donald Trump came along. It looks like we're good for four more years..God help us all! Oh yeah...the biographical stuff. I'm not 60 anymore. The rest you can read about in the blog.
