The Nashville Koskats had a GREAT meet up and surprising we got a lot of activist work done.
We voted to accept Obama Care on behalf of the state of TN. We voted to bail out Detroit. And I believe that we unanimously voted that the first step to achieving these goals was to visit the Jack Daniels distillery in Lynchburg, TN. Hey, you gotta start someplace and apparently this is the place.
But don't let me get ahead of myself. Below are pictures of our meet up.
From left to right we have: jnhobbs, Land of Enchantment, Peregrine Kate, Ladybug53 friend 1, Ladybug53 friend 2, Ladybug53, Meg, PatrickisLucky's goatee.

Holy Fuck! This photo diary stuff is hard work for a Luddite like me! And I still want to say something about everyone. This was a 4 hour meet-up for one thing so we really met!
Patrick is Lucky had some great stuff to tell me about Publix which convinced me to shop there despite the fact that they donated 2 million to the Republican Party in 2012.
jnhobbs does ___ for a living. When a friend of mine asked (somewhat disdainfully) what kind of people go to these things I mentioned jnhobbs (though what I really said was jnobbs), and that he was a____. My friend who is in the same business and very hard to impress said "Do you mean jhobbs? He isn't a__, he is THE____!"
Land of Enchantment was, well enchanting, even though she was getting ready for surgery the next day. So everyone please send her some positive intentions and loving kindness.
Ladybug53 drove all the way from Chattanooga. She has some very interesting stuff to say about our education system. She brought 2 friends who were very engaging and I don't know what the ride here was like but they knew all about pooties, woozles and trolls by the time they got here.
Meg was fantastic! Ask her about out health care system sometime.
Madramblingsfromasanewoman was delightful as well and knows some interesting things about our armed forces.
And Peregrine Kate, what can I say about her? She stayed at my house for 3 days and I don't have one bad things to say about her. And I have something bad to say about everyone. PM me and I'll dish!
We also had 2 anonymous Kossacks. I suspect they are in the witness protection program and are mobbed up. Because I am not the one who got people to come to this gathering. I just started the ball rolling. They picked it up (maybe with a bat or two, I don't want to know) and got everyone there. Big thanks!
Oh, and me, I'm just Zen Trainer . A introverted socialist, atheist, hanging out with folks in the bible belt.
