      Question for you joanne.......You mentioned going to the White House protest Sunday.

      When did it become illegal to protest outside the White House gates? Is this post 9-11?

      Because I remember the protestors there during LBJ -

      Hey, Hey, LBJ! How many kids did you kill today?

      Course, I guess we could ask the same of Obama now.

        obstructed a thoroughfare.

        I remember the last time they got arrested but didn't see this one. Last time they sat down for awhile.  Police gave the warnings, etc. Then they went over and calmly arrested them.

        Yes, I remember the hey hey LBJ chants.  I don't know if those crowds were moving down the street while chanting that or not.  I think you used to be able to walk a lot closer to the White House then.  After the Oklahoma bombing they closed some things off and then after 9/11 more.  This wikipedia entry says that the treasury building did not used to be part of the fenced compound.

      another gorgeous orchid! thanks!

      i'm doing reasonably well tonight, though i'm starting to flag a bit now after a longish day of detail intensive work.  

      hope everything is going well in your neck of the woods, i'm enjoying the tranquility of the snow here.  we've gotten a couple of inches so far.

      Even though you were already on the list, I gave you a rec just on G.P.  : )

      Such a lovely photo. Thanks!

      And I think in all the shuffle last night you missed my last comment for you on the Evening Blues thread, so here it is.
