With a new administration in Washington it will be a challenge to get the 'liberals' to hold Biden-Harris to the few 'progressive promises' they made during their campaign. Biden is bringing back many of Bush & Obama's neo-cons to head his foreign policy. I'll be on this case without hesitation.

  • I will be out of the loop from Feb 13-28 as I plan to join the Walk for a New Spring (click on the graphic above for better view of the walk schedule) that will start in Massachusetts and then lightly touch Vermont, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island before ending in Boston. It will be quite interesting to see how the weather treats us as we travel along. I will take my laptop and hope that I am able to do some blogging while on the journey. Hope my feet hold up. I need to do more stretching now, but I am so lazy when it comes to that.

  • The Maine Veterans for Peace retreat got postponed two weekends ago because of a snow storm so we are set to hold it this weekend. It appears the weather will let up just in time for us to hold the event. We will gather on Friday evening and then meet all day Saturday about an hour or so north of here along the coast at a swanky retreat center overlooking the ocean. They have a bowling alley there as well so a very competative bowling match will kick-off the weekend.....many bad backs and pulled muscles are likely to be the result.

  • On Saturday, Feb 12 the Maine Campaign to Bring Our War $$ Home will meet from noon until 3:30 pm here in Bath at the Addams-Melman House. It will begin with a pot luck lunch. We've got much to talk about and it's very exciting to see how the campaign as moved around the country. CodePink has picked it up as one of their key projects and activists in Massachusetts are working hard on it having passed resolutions in Northampton and Amherst. I saw an email the other day from Baltimore and it is now catching on there. Recently I had a call from North Dakota and folks in several other states are using the Bring Our War $$ Home theme as well. It's an effort whose time has certainly come.
