President Barrack Obama Gives His Farewell Speech Tonight In Chicago, We Get Ready To Celebrate Martin Luther King's Birthday, All Month We Celebrate Here Women Appreciation Month, & Get Ready For The Inauguration and Women's March Weekend In Two Weeks : What Will Happen?!?


Cleveland Park WineCleveland Park Beer, Liquor & Wine
Featuring a wide, international selection of fine wines, micro-brews and spirits

NEW START/NEW CHANGES /  For all of us ! the cold is lifting, the ice is cracking, holding hands moving together for all of us forward we must!

Looking tonight to Chicago, Illinois where President Obama will give his farewell speech to our nation having served as our president for eight years. Thanks you Barrack, Michelle, and family for your services to our country.
 

Looking to Monday, January 16th, 2017 when we celebrate Martin Luther King's Day, seeing his memorial-monument often as I drive home, so many there, even late at night, quite inspiring.
 
Looking at the weekend of the 20-21st, with our inauguration when we welcome President-Elect Donald Trump  on Friday, as he is sworn in as our next President of the United States of America ( wishing it were, in fact more united ) ...
 
, AND  the Women's March on Saturday, January 21st. What a weekend that will be!
 
Planning our Appreciate Women Big-Theme Wine-Tasting on Wednesday, January 18th, 2017 from 5:30-8:30PM when we have six talented female wine professionals come from places as far away as Bulgaria and Austria, South Africa, and more. All passionate about their love of wine, food, people, place, community. All choosing four of their favorite wines to pour here on that Wednesday night before the big weekend.
 
Our hope is that everyone will have a rallying point-place to gather, reflect, discuss, prepare and celebrate the upcoming weekend, find sources of common ground, unite, not feel or be divided, lost, alone, confused and more. A meeting of the minds, of healing, respect, moving together forward.
 
We are a community, we want the best for everyone here. We work together united and not divided, and we want to have a place that supports and welcomes all those coming here that weekend, males and females. Everyone's voices should be heard and not be silenced.
 
With so many of you coming into town, many of you that we have never met, we want to welcome you both on that...
Wednesday the 18th with Emily Edwards, Slavaya Yaninska, Danielle Davidowitz, Theresa Morrison, Christina Caswell and Liz Kitterman, as well as on...

        Need to share this!

        While we were distracted by tweets:
        The federal week in review:
        1. Trump fires all Obama-appointed Ambassadors and Special Envoys, ordering them out by inaugura...tion day.
        2. House brings back the Holman rule allowing them to reduce an individual civil service, SES positions, or political appointee's salary to $1, effectively firing them by amendment to any piece of legislation. We now know why they wanted names and positions of people in Energy and State.
        3. Senate schedules 6 simultaneous hearings on cabinet nominees and triple-books those hearings with Trump's first press conference in months and an ACA budget vote, effectively preventing any concentrated coverage or protest.
        4. House GOP expressly forbids the Congressional Budget Office from reporting or tracking ANY costs related to the repeal of the ACA.
        5. Trump continues to throw the intelligence community under the bus to protect Putin, despite the growing mountain of evidence that the Russians deliberately interfered in our election.
        6. Trump breaks a central campaign promise to make Mexico pay for the wall by asking Congress (in other words, us, the taxpayers) to pay for it.
        7. Trump threatens Toyota over a new plant that was never coming to the US nor will take jobs out of the US.
        8. House passes the REINS act, giving them veto power over any rules enacted by any federal agency or department--for example, FDA or EPA bans a drug or pesticide, Congress can overrule based on lobbyists not science. Don't like that endangered species designation, Congress kills it.
        We - progressive, liberal, libertarian and conservative - need to all wake up to what is actually happening to our beloved country.
