 Doesn't that have a sweet ring to it? I feel like I can breathe again !

I hope the world outside our walls can forgive us for the past 4 years of isolation, hatred, denial and greed. This is not the America that I've cherished for years and I can't wait to become part of the big wide World again … with all of it's joys and sadness, quirks and challenges !

We did it, we did it , we did it. You are so right. We really have an image around the world to rebuild.

Speaking from this little place in eastern Canada, it is good to have you back.

You asked me about the CJON choir. I have a vague recollection of it during the 1960s. They made records of Newfoundland music. They were formed in 1953 and directed by a great Newfoundland director, Ignatius Rumbolt, during those early years.

It is interesting that your niece remembers that choir.

I’m Wendy who lived in St. John’s from 1964-1966. I was 10 when we moved there. I remember singing to the album of Nfld folk songs that Rumbolt conducted. To this day, I can remember “Jack Was Every a Inch a Sailor” and “I’s the By”. I’ve been trying to get back to Nfld over the past two summers. Once Covid subsides, I’ll get there. The nicest people on earth and such beautiful scenery. Since the 1960’s I’ve measured fish and chips against those I had in Nfld, and none have ever compared! And I’ll never forget when the Portuguese fishing fleet would sail into the harbor, the men repairing sails up in the rigging, and playing soccer on the docks. ☺️

Ginnie - Isn't it the most wonderful thing at long last? I can hardly believe it. Slept like a log last night for the first time in what seems like forever. So much to repair and to revamp - to improve for all. But what a lovely sight - all those smiles and obvious love; unlike the past four years w/ the obnoxious White House family's negativity and duplicity. So terrific. Hugs.

from my friend Jan ... and I agree with all she writes.

As you know, I am so over joyed with Biden's win, I actually cried! But tears of joy were welcome compared to the tears I shed 4 years ago!
Now comes the final weeks of chaos. Like many of you, I am keeping an eye on what the Rump is up to. Folks say he has never LOST before – but what about all those bankruptcies, law suits, his fake University – were these not losses? His divorces? Paying off women? Yet, he has his fan club, apparently. But here is a very sobering thought – the Rump actually got MORE votes this time around than he got back in 2016! That is scary! There are MORE of them than we want to believe!

I think it is safe to say that the entire sane world rejoices in this victory for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, but it is a very sobering thought indeed that over 70 millions of American citizens voted for Trump, and many are now taking to the streets because they believe it when he claims the election was rigged and stolen from him. Your democracy is in dire peril, it seems to me, and all the spineless Republicans should feel totally ashamed of themselves. I don't know how many times I have heard people like Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio tout the constitution they now appear willing to ignore. And what can you say about Lindsay Graham that doesn't make you want to throw up?
