    some of my family's political leanings are. Politics just never come up - lots more family stuff to talk about.

    We've been getting together for Thanksgiving since I was a wee one reluctantly sitting at the kiddie table.

    It's my father's side of the family. First my aunt or mother did the dinners and now it's been passed on to my cousins and in one case, my cousin's daughter. Generations keeping the tradition.

    Lot's of food, laughs and watching the grandkids grow up. On just got married!

    Now that I live 1500 miles away, I can only join them occasionally, but I try to participate by sending something. This year it was an unbelievable lighter than air hazelnut cake enrobed in cream and chocolate shavings from a wonderful bakery in Philly (Swiss Bakery, in center city, if anyone is interested.)

    This year I went out to dinner with friends. All are on the same political page. One lives in both Canada and the US - is now US citizen). Only once did politics pop up and since we all agreed, there was nothing to really discuss!

    Warm holiday greetings to all in the orange community (a bit late in the day, but still well meant).

    It’s the Supreme Court, stupid! Followed by: It's always the Supreme Court! Progressives will win only when we convince a majority that they, too, are Progressive.
