    You are brave for going in there. I was literally avoiding that one at all costs. Which is why burned's move impressed me so much.

      her, and through her our President, often annoy me.
      But she has put up requests for folks to rec the oilpocalypse Mothership. Triciawyse, in the pootie diaries, has also done so.

        tip & rec BWD often. I don't get involved in the comments because people seem to get offended by the content of her diaries for whatever reason. I turn to her diaries when I I need a lift. The comment thread I can do without. No matter, I agree with the main point of your comment, she does good work for the community.

          well, the anglicized version of that, was in a bwd diary.
          Never been back.  Won't go back.
          ROV is a safe haven, like IGTNT and Saturday Gardening.  Thanks for that.

          and seldom comment. She does seem to draw the ire of the anti-Obama crowd, often.

          But without her, I wouldn't have the news I get in her diaries (I live in the heart of Bush Country. My Congresscritter is Randy "Baby Killer" Neugebauer. My local media is so red picking up the paper leaves bloody fingerprints and listening to the local news raises my bloodpressure -- the 'liberal' station here is Fox 34!!) and I sure would never get to see the photos of the President, Vice President, and their families.

          So I am grateful, because as you say, she raises my spirits.

          And I didn't mean to complain here, just point out (as I was very tired last night) that these ROV/MS diaries are drawing favor from other community diarists too.

          •  :) I live in a red district too. (0+ / 0-)

            The only saving grace is that it's a burb of a big city so the news is pretty liberal because it's city news. The local paper ~ awful!!

            I was really distressed when I thought she was leaving us.  I dropped a comment then. But quickly got out of there. I'm a self-admitted wuss! ;)
