  8. Even though I'm working from home and won't be off until 4:30, I had a tiny half glass of champagne at noon when President Biden was sworn in! (Shh...!) I plan to drink a whole lot more tonight! Oh, Happy Day.

    Stephani Germanotta (Lady GaGa) was so good. A true singer and artist. Not seen on the pool footage was where she was pointing: at the Capitol flag -- still there after the attack and suddenly bathed in sunlight. Garth Brooks made me cry with Amazing Grace. And President Biden's inaugural address made me think there may be hope for us after all.

    1. Perhaps trump has done something good ?
      His awful presidency has reinforced what needed to be returned to American politics

    2. That's a good way to look at it John.

  22. lady gaga was awesome. the poet was outstanding. we have a chance now. the republicans are slowly backing away from trump because their financial baking is being pulled. even the my pillow guy is crying because his retailers have quit carrying his crap. oh happy day!

  28. I could not watch television (homeschooling) so I missed it, but when I checked FB at noon, Connie schultz's comment 'Trump is no longer the president of the United States of America' brought tears to my eyes.

  29. From beginning to end an outstanding day. Shed a few wee tears from time to time. May the healing begin, and not just nation wide but world wide too. Gaga and Jennifer were amazing. I'm always so impressed when someone can stand up and belt out a song under such pressure to get it right. And young and so very talented Amanda. Wow. X

  34. Tears shed here too. He whose name I shall never speak again, is gone and relegated to the dustbin of history to face his mounting legal and financial troubles. Now we move forward and already, with 17 Executive Orders, President Biden has undone some of the biggest and most egregious things. Tell the world we're back and stronger than ever!

  35. Relieved, tears and joy!!!

  37. Amanda Gorman WAS amazing !!!

  38. Yes I also thought Amanda Gorman was amazing and thought how sad it was that John Lewis was not there to see it, but at the same time I'm glad that he also did not have to witness the horror in the white house of the gun toting mob who had murder on their mind.

  40. Biden's speech, in my opinion, could not have been better. THAT's a president. THAT's a leader. There was so much greatness in yesterday's proceedings, but Amanda Gorman was the brightest star in the sky.

  41. Our Escorts in Dwarka are amazingly hot and that they realize how to manage an individual with adoration and love. When you have invested fine energy with our Dwarka Escorts, you may not the slightest bit look for every other person. The five star components around us is the truth that we give extraordinary call girls in Dwarka.

    Congratulations. You have a president owned by China. I'm sure Uyghurs are as pleased as you all. You can continue to label those that disagree with your political opinions horrible demeaning things and depend on politicians to make your decisions.. Did your parents teach you that or are you empowered by the internet. Would you call me names to my face? Enough, please, enough.
