   MeiDei  Happy Birthday to Stephanie Plum - have a wonderful fun filled day!
January 5 Zodiac
If You Were Born Today, January 5:
Extremely versatile, you are multi-talented, clever, and imaginative. You are highly compassionate and sensitive, sometimes to the point of despondency, and it can take time in your life to find effective ways to manage this trait. Emotional impulsiveness is something you are likely to struggle with in your life time. When focused, you have strong leadership skills and a strong will as well. You are independent and unique, very perceptive, and highly original. Famous people born today: Robert Duvall, Diane Keaton, Marilyn Manson, Walter Mondale.

They will be 102 mile round trips from Manassas to Front Royal. You can get ticket information at

Here's a picture of the train taken today as it makes it ferry move to Manassas. It is crossing the James River near Lynchburg VA.

   Grace1798  We went to some festivals here in PA but the stuff they were selling was not as nice as they were back in the 60s, 70s and 80s. So all I bought was food.

   BirdsNest  Change of plans for this event for us. We paid for and were promised a corner space, but it seems they have given it to another vendor so we asked for a refund and we will not be in attendance. Anyone in the area is still free to go, it is a great event and there is lots to do there.

   Linder  Up and off early tomorrow morning for the District Republican Convention...about an hours drive and I will be going alone so that I can stop off at 7 yr. old granddaughter Molly's evening birthday party on my way home. We will elect district committee people to sit on the state central committee and ratify a district platform. The platform can get tedious and contentious but always interesting. Back in the day when I was more involved and served as district Republican Women's president I knew many people in the district. I'm anxious to see if many of my old acquaintances are still involved. The State Presidential Convention will be in June and we elect delegates to National Convention then. It would be interesting to learn how different states conduct party business.

   Saguni  For the L-dotters and Connectors within driving distance of Oklahoma City and the Oklahoma State Fairgrounds, I would like to invite you to come to the Friends of the Metropolitan Library's Annual Booksale, February 25 and 26. It is held in the Oklahoma Expo Hall at the State Fairgrounds. Free entrance on Saturday and Sunday. In the bigger "General" room, all hardbacks are $1 and paperbacks are 50 cents. In the other room, is "Collector's Choice," books in much better condition, this year's bestsellers and antique or First Editions, individually priced and great bargains! Our booksale is one of the top five in the country, all work is done by volunteers and all proceeds go back to the library. The branch librarians send us a "wish list" for programs, art or improvements not in the county budget, and the profits pay for these items. Our website is-- --and it has pictures of previous sales. I will be at the back of the "General" room, working at the Volunteer Tables.

   Surfhut  Well, I just came from the book fair and met Saguni in person. (Saguni, I looked for you again after shopping and couldn't find you! ) Can't tell you how much fun it was to meet a Connector in person!

   Surfhut  PS. It was pretty funny, going to the table and trying to explain why I was there and who I was meeting. I didn't recognize Saguni ... the police officer was staring at me ... when I finally said we met online via Lucianne, she jumped up and we had a hug-fest! Great fun!

   Saguni  I'm sorry I missed you, they pulled me to help serve lunch for the volunteers who are there from 8 to 3. The police officer sits there because it is in front of the "financial room," at the end of the sale I found out our total this year was just over $230K! We have been trying to break 1/4 million for several years, but don't quite make it, but that's not bad for a 3 day sale.
