Sunday things

January 22nd, 2017 at 04:13 pm

It's been wonderful to see the turnout of the Million Women (and men) March in cities around the world. As I sit here at home writing letter after letter to my Congresspeople, it sometimes feels like a lost cause, but the marches this weekend of so many like-minded people told me otherwise.

We have only just begun.

Not much news to report...I am now more steadily writing for the higher education website; I have about 3 weeks left of unemployment benefits. I still need something more though.

I'm going to be more exclusively shopping at Aldis since they beat Walmart, BJs, Shop Rite and Trader Joe prices. They don't have everything I buy but they have a fair amount of stuff I buy regularly like old-fashioned oatmeal, almond or soymilk and some fresh produce.

I walked 50 minutes today and filled all 24 boxes of the Daily Dozen, not an easy feat.

Did anyone see the first episode of "Victoria" on PBS? I thought it was very good and can't wait to see the next showing. People just can't seem to get enough of made for TV movies on British royalty, but about all the other royalty in other countries?

    I saw some of the marches and thought why am I not there? As a conservative I feel very sad and not hopeful. This is the first time I've ever felt this way since I've been voting.
    Also I'm hoping you get something soon.

    I did watch Victoria last week. I found myself falling asleep, not sure if I will watch tonight. I'm honestly confused what the march is actually about. I also read about some native american women who marched who were snubbed or pushed aside by other women marching. That sure doesn't sound very civil or kind.

    The people at the March in Boston could not have been nicer and kinder. The signs were all over the spectrum-- respect for women, immigrants, gay people , the environment. Lots of families with little kids.

    Creditcardfree, the march brings together a wide spectrum of people who dislike Trump's policies. He has managed to make enemies among a swath of American society: women, men, immigrants, environmentalists, people who need healthcare, gays, etc. long before he took the oath. That's what the marches were about.

    So how does he react? He and his PR guy argue that the crowds at the inauguration were larger than the crowds of protesters. What a narcissist. And when the facts get in the way of his claims, it's yet another "conspiracy."

    Creditcardfree- We had lots of Native Americans at the DC march. The rally was actually opened by a Native American woman signing/chanting and playing the drum. I couldn't understand the language but It was beautiful. Not sure about other cities, but they were embraced here in DC!

    That movie sounds interesting. I never seem to watch any movies about royalty. As a side note, my cousin is named after her.

    I have been watching lots of BBC shows on Netflix while walk/jog on the treadmill. It started with a show about Queen Elizabeth 2, and spiraled from there. Smile When Victoria goes on Netflix, I'll probably watch it.
