We'd love to have a few more, however, so please feel free to join us if you can. Advance notice is great but not required.

Looking forward to seeing you there....

PS--If anyone has a laptop they'd be willing to bring and have operational during the event, there is a possibility still being discussed about doing a live-blog in coordination with the Central Valley Kossacks during the Inauguration. Seems like fun, no? Anyway, please let us know if you're willing to do that. Thanks much!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:
Are you sure you want to remove this diary from your hotlist?
Are you sure you want to remove your recommendation? You can only recommend a diary once, so you will not be able to re-recommend it afterwards.
Rescue this diary, and add a note:
Are you sure you want to remove this diary from Rescue?

    birthday) so my apologies in advance if I'm not right on the spot with my replies. Changes in RSVPs will be duly noted, however, and I'll make sure to get back to you ASAP if there are any other questions. Thanks for your patience and understanding.

      laptop if there is wifi available at the restaurant.  We just finished celebrating my daughter-in-law's birthday - cake and ice cream at 11:00 a.m. in the morning!  

      Have a fun birthday party.  See you tomorrow.

        Thanks for the offer. One of us will check and get back to you about the wifi.
        Unfortunately, it looks like our joint effort (with Central Kossacks) will probably not be possible; complications have emerged. However, that doesn't mean we couldn't do it ourselves--although I think that it's also probably a FP task for tomorrow. The fun would have been in the convo between our groups, I think.

        It's up to you whether you want to give it a try. You could call if you like, as well. Either way is fine--truly, no pressure.

  •  See you tomorrow. (5+ / 0-)

    I am looking forward to meeting everyone.   I hope you won't mind my lack of enthusiasm for the inauguration event.   I'm not a fan of tradition or ceremony, but  I am a fan of good pizza and good people.  

    Happy Birthday to kate's daughter.    My grandson #1 turns 19 on 1/25.

    transport my sister-in-law for her chemo for her RA and pick her up when the treatment is complete.  This will tie us up for most of the day.  Husband and I look forward to other opportunities to meet up.  We've already met some Kossacks through activist events.  It's always interesting and fun.

      for sure...?

      Do you happen to know the dates for Dave in Northridge? I know he alluded to it but I don't recall the conference. Maybe we'll be able to connect with him online later today. I'll try.
