So true...

    Just have to double check the formatting tomorrow and at long last the 2023 volume of Grand Moments can go to press. The largest volume before this one (last year’s) was 32 pages. This one is 62! Small wonder I didn’t have it done in time for Christmas as usual…! The kids and grands will get it for Valentine’s Day…and I can finally do something else! Ha!

    1. Congratulations!

  2. So far this morning the "news" seems to be dominated by continuing speculation about various things.

    CNN: The Supreme Court signaled Thursday it is poised to back former President Donald Trump and fend off a blockbuster challenge to his eligibility to appear on Colorado’s ballot, potentially by a wide margin.

    During more than two hours of arguments, Chief Justice John Roberts and the high court’s other conservative justices peppered the lawyers representing Trump’s challengers with a series of questions that suggested they were seeking a way to side with the former president – most likely based on reasoning that doesn’t address the question of whether he is or isn’t an insurrectionist.

    Even some members of the court’s liberal wing posed difficult questions to the lawyers opposed to Trump.

    “For an insurrection, there needs to be an organized, concerted effort to overthrow the government of the United States through violence,” Mitchell said when asked to explain his argument that Trump’s actions did not involve an attempt to overthrow the government.

    “So your point is that a chaotic effort to overthrow the government is not an insurrection?” the justice responded.

    “This was a riot, it was not an insurrection,” Mitchell responded.

    OPINION: Congress has already disqualified Trump from the ballot

  5. President Biden to speak at 7:45pm. It is anticipated that this is in response to him *not* being charged today though found to have "willfully retained classified documents."
