EVERYONE is welcome and please join us each morning at 7:30 AM PACIFIC
to tell us what you're working on, share your show & tell, vent, whatever you want...
...this is an open thread. Nothing is off topic.
I'm always really pleased to see ambitious get togethers like this. mconvente took it on himself to gather a tri-state meet-up. Kudos! A very difficult thing anywhere but particularly with mass transit involved. Congratulations mconvente and all who made the trek to attend.
Here's a few photos:
Hello! We need an organizer for New Jersey!
Our intrepid Texans in Houston are setting the standard for socializing to further enable future boots on the ground actions there. Both Chrislove and nomandates have been documenting their group's political efforts there. We stand in solidarity with Texas and mad props to Houston at this moment!
Here's one photo:
L-R: Alan, Mary, doraphasia, Libby Shaw, cosette, TDDVandy & Chrislove
New England Kossacks do it again! Always a hit when the Cheers & Jeers team is involved. How lucky this group is to have Bill in Portland Maine and Common Sense Mainer all to themselves.
Here's one photo:
