Liz Dexic has offered to host a meetup/potluck in Herndon, Virginia this Sunday, January 27th, from noon to 5pm. Our last two meetups had good turnouts and great conversation.  I'm sure this one will be great also.

Liz's home is metro accessible, so if you let her know where you're coming from, she'll make sure you make the right connections.

here's plenty of parking in the neighborhood subdivision (house is on a corner), a couple of levels where conversation groups may sit and chat while eating, and of course pooties. Said pooties will be corralled initially because they are way too friendly and no one would get a chance to eat, so later they will join us.

The location address and contact information will be sent to you via Kosmail. If you're interested in coming, send a kosmail to me or to Liz and we'll get back to you with the address and directions, and information on how to get there from the metro if you're coming that way.

The location is also near the Monroe Park & Ride and you can take the 950 Weekend bus from West Falls Church, give a call once you're on your way, and we'll come get you if you're a Metro rider.

If you're attending and can bring something, we'll keep track and update the event info as it develops.

a gilas girl (via Metro)
Diana in NoVa                             tiny cheese pizzas

Any help getting the word out about this event would be appreciated.

With the upcoming Virginia governor's race this year, all political eyes are likely to be on Virginia. Virginia is one of the key states that is likely to make a difference in the next presidential election, and a lot of that is contingent on who is elected for governor. I am hoping that our friends in Maryland and Washington DC will come down to help in the campaign because we're going to need all the help we can get. (Oh please, not another four years under a republican governor!)

And while many of us have been enjoying President Obama's victory and the inauguration, the Virginia republicans pushed through a measure in the 20-20 Senate to make it easier for them to redistrict. They waited until Democratic Senator Henry Marsh, a 79 year old civil rights activist, left to attend the inauguration on Monday.

Terry McAuliffe is likely to be our Democratic nominee for governor, and seems to be doing a great job with fundraising so far.

I'm sure that we will be discussing these and other issues at our get together this coming Sunday.

Hope you can come!

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.
