Remembering Nancy Reagan

It’s a treat to remember decades past, more comfortable times, & better leadership, although the occasion is a sad one.

But we are grateful for her service to the country…for her dedication to her guy.

    Good morning everyone.

    • The Raven says:

      Yep…the grand jury will be convened and “taught” how to not vote to indict. There is no way a Dem administration will go after Hillary. Zero chance. Zip, zero, nada. Goose egg

    Good morning everyone.

    So the Obama-ites want to throw us in jail for discovering their scam. Hah.
    I think, after the election, we should imprison conservative deniers. Those on the left who believe in ends justifies the means and not the laws or constitution (basically all of the left). IRS deniers. Immigration deniers. Judicial activist deniers. Voter fraud deniers.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      putting us all in jail….I believe it!
      Well, there was a Univision debate last night and Jorge Ramos must have been channeling his inner R…he really asked Hillary some really tough questions about her emails. Questions she has not answered in such a setting before….She did not respond well, at all, altho the audience loved her lies. Anyway….good for Ramos.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Polls show Kasich with slight lead, but after MI…can we have any confidence in the polls? I predict it will a Trump win. I’m voting for Cruz.

    • The Raven says:

      My RV neighbors here in Florida are from Ohio and both are voting absentee for Trump. Sometimes they look over at me and they make a “T” with their arms and cheerlead with “Trump, Trump, Trump”

      Question: Does anyone here on ATRW have a private server for email and will you stop blogging if indicted?

  4. Prairie says:

    Good evening all, we’ve had some rain move in….sometimes locally heavy…..and it had been wonderful to see, things were getting pretty dry. Not much news here except that we may be heading for the land of deer and bear fairly soon. Lots to do up at the new digs and we are both feeling the call to get up there and get ourselves organized before Spring official commences.

    It is to be in the 90’s here starting this weekend for several days. So I suppose that lows of 22 -32 at night in the land of deer and bear will be quite a shock. I’ve been finding some decent sales on what passes for winter clothing here….must get another pair or two of jeans. I did take advantage of the cooler weather brought on by the rain today to run my self-cleaning oven. It looks good.

    I have no comments at present on the news. Appreciate the articles posted, as always.

  6. Molly Pitcher says:

    Hi everyone…we have a potential voting mess on our hands next Tuesday in Ohio…one with significant consequences. The situation is that last Fall the primary was changed from proportional to winner takes all. BUT the wording on the ballot was NOT changed. It was left the same with voters directed to vote in 2 different places for a set of delegates. NOW the head of the R party is trying to explain what to do during the voting procedure, and is being challenged that he’s giving out the wrong info. If there is enough confusion, with so much at stake, legal challenges may be the result.
    The R party here is looking stupider and stupider, plus creating the impression that it is all rigged to benefit the sitting Gov…….Kasich. Blech. Now all this has just sprung up in the past 2 weeks as folks started zeroing on the ballot, voting, and early voters reported much confusion. Not sure if the story has hit Fox News, etc., yet.

  7. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Thank you lysie . Another good weather day here. That’s not the case in other parts of our wonderful country, tho. Off to exercise. BBL.

    • tillacum says:

      Good Morning, thank you for a nice breakfast. It thundered and lightening all night and now the sun is out. Go figure. It was a nice lightening show though.
      There were 55 airplanes which flew into Sea Island, GA yesterday and 56 flew out. Early this a.m. I saw something about it, but the only face I knew was Paul Ryan. Has anyone else heard about this event?

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      No I don’t till. Hope you are ok with all the rains and storms in your area.

  8. Jemian says:

    Dropping by to say hello! This week has been full. I’m trying a new-to-me technique with my kids and it is taking a lot of energy. Couple that with today’s solar eclipse. My students were very excited. So, we would run out of the class every so often while it was on-going and see the difference as the moon traveled across the sun. Fun, and a good experience, but rather disruptive.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Sounds great. Hi Jemian. you are getting closer to your trip stateside, I think?
      Here the big news is Sanders winning Michigan….he just pulled the rug out from under Hillary! there.

  9. lysie says:

    Sorry folks. Kitties messed up the living room keyboard.
    Good morning everyone.

    Molly, we were fortunate to be invited to President Reagan’s first Inauguration and attended one of the balls, at the Air & Space Museum. Nancy was positively radiant. Just beautiful. They were both so obviously deeply in love with each other. I’m sure the past 11+ years were very hard on her, beyond her own failing health. It’s difficult to feel ‘sad’ when a 94 year old who has led a good/grand life passes, other than its reflecting our own memories of an era long past, and not likely to return in form any time soon. I’m happy to believe they are reunited in eternity.

    • The Raven says:

      Wow…how’d you do that? You must be famous. I’d give my eye teeth for that.

    • edinva says:

      Rav, it was very special. We’d just married that New Year’s Eve, with the Reagan Inaugural on Jan. 20. The tix to the ball may have been a wedding gift from a law school classmate of DH’s who was WH counsel to Ford. I really don’t remember, but *WE* are the epitome of nobodies! If you’ve been to the Air & Space museum, there is a huge atrium where they set up a stage, and it also had tables set up around the surrounding balcony for the high rollers (not us). We were among the commoners. But for GHWB’s we were hosts for the VIPs and THAT was amazing. Maybe best night I’ve ever had in my life. But, back to the Reagans. She was beaming, glowing, radiant… whatever words you want to describe, in a gorgeous white gown with silvery sequins. Elegant, not one sequin too many, nor one too few. The woman certainly had style, that’s for sure. And it was clear that she absolutely adored her husband. And he adored her.

      BUT, truth be told, those Inaugural Balls are just one big, crowded mess! I was well advised, DO NOT wear anything you are not willing to see get ruined. I had a friend from Chicago who came into town for Reagan’s 2nd Inaugural. Spent $10K for her dress!! Not only was that insane on its face … the ball and all Inaugural events were cancelled because it was bitter cold.

      They just pack ’em in … at the aforementioned GWHB Ball, the one we hosted was at the Kennedy Center. The ‘commoners” were packed in like sardines thru the long corridor, called the “Grand Foyer” .. a couple of people passed out, and didn’t fall down because they were so crammed in. Let me clarify … for GWHB and GWB’s inaugurals we were volunteer hosts at the request of the local Republican committee. Some hosts pay a ton of money to be hosts and have their names on programs… not us, we were volunteer hosts. Still we have had a lot of fun.

      The Bushes and Quayles must have gotten to that event last because it was well after midnight when they arrived (and those guests had been standing that entire time, starting around 8pm, with no place to move to). For that one, as said, we hosted the VIP lounge = incredibly magnificent room with Waterford chandeliers that were @ 20’ in diameter, gorgeous chippendale furniture … private bar and tons of food being served. And a kazillion live roses. That was reserved for VIPs, i.e., Members of Congress, Supreme Court, those types. Oh, and Charleton Heston! I was disappointed because they said Tom Sellek was expected, but he didn’t show … bummer. But, seriously, we just sat there at a table chatting away with Charleton Heston and his daughter! Amazing. He and my DH both went to Northwestern, so there was that.

      Right outside the VIP lounge were the High Roller tables where again they had their own bar, food galore, AND their own band and dance floor. The rich ARE different. Tables at the KenCen (IIRC, a table for four there was $10K donation from folks who’d probably already donated a cool $100K to the campaign) were right over the stage set up for POTUS/VPOTUS/FLOTUS, so you could practically reach down and touch them. Both the VIPs and High Rollers were to stay within the confined of their own section, but that lasted about 10 minutes, so everyone mixed rather beautifully. Because POTUS and his party arrived so late, the Park Police had to reopen Rock Creek Parkway that runs under/beside the Kennedy Center … and that’s where we had parked our car with a special permit… so ours and all cars parked there got towed. We ended up with a special police escort, lights flashing, to where our car had been towed. It was one helluva fun night right to the very end.

      Since 9/11 they have combined all the Inaugural Balls, except the Military Ball, into one venue .. the mammoth Convention Center that consumes about 4 city blocks. There used to be several balls held at different locations around the city: the big fancy hotels (Mayflower, Willard), KenCen, Air & Space, Union Station, etc. They partition the Convention Center into different sections, and, for instance, have PA/NY/NJ guests in one area, TX/WY in another (for GWB/Cheney). For Bush/Cheney in ’05, the first combined Inaugural Ball, there were 40,000 people attending!! THAT is how big the Convention Center is. Unfortunately, security is now the #1 consideration for everything.

      Oh, wait … we WERE important at one of these… GWB’s first. (Post-Florida, that one). We were at Union Station and charged with handing out rest room passes. Let me tell you, that makes you the 2nd most important person in the joint!

      I believe it goes without saying, we didn’t host or attend the affairs for Clinton or Obama.

      There ARE distinct advantages to living in The Swamp!

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      What wonderful memories! Sure enjoyed reading them…all the details. Lovely!

      Good morning Raven, ED . Bill Bennett says: At the R Convention, can we draft Peyton Manning ??

    • edinva says:

      G’day, Molly, all

      Maybe it’s just me but the overkill on attacking Trump is getting to me. From Romney to Lindsay Graham to all those Hollywood celebs who promise (we wish!) to leave if he’s elected … it just doesn’t stop. Back in ’76 and ’80 they did the same to RWR, but we didn’t have 24-7 “news” channels, the internet, MoveOn, etc. It wasn’t continual bashing so you couldn’t turn on a TV or pick up a newspaper or go to a website. Remember how he’d bring us to nuclear annihiliation? To this day, poverty is his fault within certain circles. He was also a racist, blah blah blah. I’d like to find an isolated island to move to for a few months.

      We are having a summery day today… temps as I type @ 74, and simply glorious. .. (a week ago we were looking at yet another school snow day). Less than two weeks to the opening of the Cherry Blossom Festival and I think they said the blooms will be out in full bloom by the 30th, nice for Easter. Going out for a walk now (because I know it won’t last).

    • The Raven says:

      EDINVA…I am so ooo jealous. You must have had the time of your life.

      I vote we give EDINVA special status here at ATRW.

      …..Bill B doesn’t know Peyton’s history. He got sued for sitting on a girl’s face in college. And then there’s the hormone scandal. Imagine that in a Democrat TV ad

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Yes…lovely spring day…I did outside work, too.
      But am fretting about the bad rains/flooding overtaking the places we were in Texas a few days ago . We were very lucky with the weather while we were there.

    • Prairie says:

      Love reading your memories, ED. Restroom passes…..I can see where folks would be seeking you out. Haa!

    • edinva says:

      Prairie … THAT is power !!!

  11. The Raven says:

    I was reading this article about the Eagles member’s wife getting killed and felt sorry for her until I read the last two paragraphs. How can it possibly be an accident?

  12. lysie says:

    An email from my aunt. 🙂

    Texas A&M Study calls Obama 5th Best President Good research work by a fine institution!


    From a total of 44 US Presidents: Obama is rated as the fifth.

    The A&M’s Public Relations Office released this statement: “After six years in office, Americans have rated President Obama the fifth best President ever.”

    These are the details according to Texas A&M:
    1. Reagan was first,
    2. Twenty-four presidents tied for second,
    3. Seventeen other presidents tied for third,
    4. Jimmy Carter came in fourth, and
    5. Obama came in fifth.

    There you have it. Stats don’t lie.


  13. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone. Thanks for the start , Molly.


  14. tillacum says:

    Good Morning All.

  15. Jemian says:

    Thank you, Molly, for getting us started today. Nancy Reagan was a lady every day.
