Good Morning, Kossacks. I hope that you are all having a great weekend. I have been around the Great Orange Satan for a long time. Although I am a political junkie, I am mostly a pootie poster and a garden blogger here at DKos. However, I have always believed that building a progressive majority means building a progressive community. No one does more to help build the community at Daily Kos than Bill in Portland Maine.
Back in the fall of 2007, Bill lost his day job and wrote a TTFN. I was here for the week that he was gone from us. Kos saw the wisdom of allowing the community to support Bill, and he is the one front-pager who is supported entirely by our contributions. I love Cheers and Jeers. Because of my crazy work schedule, I can't always participate, but I always read his diaries. They never fail to put a smile on my face.
I am going to make is easy for you to support BiPM by offering a challenge. I will send him 25 cents for each rec that this diary receives. I would also urge you to support his work with a one-time donation or with an ongoing monthly contribution. Here are the contribution links:

Pull up a chair and grab a second cup of coffee. Since I am mostly a pootie poster and a garden blogger, I thought that I would share a few of dad's and my favorite cat and flower photos.
