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...
Friday the 20th with Robert Kennedy, and ...
Saturday the 21st with Andrew Stover.
