    It is GOOD to read you all. I plan to buy a new computer. It took way to looooooong to read you as this one doesn't like script, plug ins, or anything it doesn't recognize. I've had it since 2006.

    I like wearing a pedometer. On a charity or issue walk/march it is fun and easy to do thousands of steps!

    Glad so many od us are here today.

    January 15, 2017
    President-elect Donald Trump said in a weekend interview that he is nearing completion of a plan to replace President Obama’s signature health-care law with the goal of “insurance for everybody,” while also vowing to force drug companies to negotiate directly with the government on prices in Medicare and Medicaid.
    Trump declined to reveal specifics in the telephone interview late Saturday with The Washington Post...

    Yesterday on Hollywood Blvd a man wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat got in the street punching the air and yelling at nurses and other protestors. Police repeatedly spoke to him, probably reminding him to stay on the sidewalk. He finally left.

    I want to see La La Land too. Husband says he's not interested, but i think he will like it when I convince him to go.
    Not today though because a group of us senior exercisers plan to carpool to an event.
    We'll get to Hollywood early and have a late lunch/early dinner somewhere.

    Russian Hackers Gained ‘Limited’ Access to R.N.C., Comey Says
    The director of the F.B.I., James B. Comey, told lawmakers at a Senate hearing on Tuesday that Russian hackers had penetrated the Republican National Committee’s computer records, but he called it a “limited penetration of old R.N.C.” computer systems that were “no longer in use.”...

    ... An aide in Mr. Graham’s office said the hacking of the email server in question occurred in June. The Graham campaign was using the server to send news clips and campaign releases, the aide said.
    In an unclassified report released on Friday, the intelligence community reported that the Russians had attacked “Republican-affiliated” organizations but that they had chosen not to make any of that data public. The report made no specific reference to the Republican National Committee.....

    ... the panel will investigate allegations Russia used cyber attacks to influence the U.S. presidential election, including any links between Russia and the political campaigns.

    The committee plans to interview senior officials of both the Trump and Obama administrations and may issue subpoenas to compel testimony, the panel's Republican chairman, Richard Burr, and its top Democrat, Mark Warner, said in a statement...

    The sky is blue and the sun is shining!
    If it stays dry today and tomorrow i think I'll mow the little front lawn and big pig weed forest the rain brought to the back yard.
    I plan to take Duke for a few blocks walk. He's an old doh with arthritis now. Then I'll walk-run Pearlie Girl about four miles. I can go a long was so long as I slow down often enough. She could run and run. She literally runs circles around Duke in the yard.
    We had a leak in the roof that got her bed wet. She and Duke slept together. I think they looked cute. There is a trash can under the leak until we get it fixed.

    Last night we enjoyed a musical celebration of the opening of the Smithsonian African American American Museum. The young man who sang the blues was excellent.
    Mary Jane Blige surprised me singing "America" commemorating Marian Anderson singing at the Lincoln Memorial.
    The women who sang in tribute to Sarah Vaughn, Billie Holiday, and Lena Horne sang beautifully, but not at all like the geniuses they honored.
    I was so glad when they got to Motown that Gladys Knight herself did "Midnight Train to Georgia"
    Usher did James brown, John Legend did Michael Jackson.
    I wonder if they decided not to include Louis Armstrong or just didn't think of him for a two hour show.

    The VA negotiates medication prices. I think government and private hospitals, clinics and pharmacies should be able to do so too.

    How can hospitals continue to short staff nursing departments? Since they claim to be a "business' they should realize their "product is "Nursing Care".

    I just heard on the news thatca fire station caught fire.

    Today I plan to do the two hours of exercise. I'll be tire, but a good tired.
