Hey ho

Hi DU. I've been lurking since Bush, maybe 2002? I just fled to the Netherlands two months ago. I've been a Democrat since Bush v Gore; before that I was Independent; in my youth I was Republican. To be fair, I grew up in Maryland and moved to Texas for college, and a Maryland Republican is far more liberal than a Texas Democrat. Otherwise, I have two brilliant adult daughters, one husband, two dogs and three cats. Hope this is an acceptable intro.

7. Welcome aboard. You've lurked here during election season so you know what it's like.

So did your cats and dogs migrate to the Netherlands with you?

8. Yes

They did. On KLM. I was told Lufthansa and KLM are the best airlines for pets.

9. Welcome - I envy your being in the Netherlands

met a staffer for Steve Bullock a couple of weeks ago. He had been in the Netherlands for 3 years and came home to help his governor and family friend.

He said he was a bit bored in the Netherlands because whatever he needed he could pretty much get. Told him it sounded like heaven to me.

Hope life is good for you over there.

11. While I;ve never been to the Netherlands

I have lived in both Maryland and Texas. Gotta admit, I am a little jealous - Some of my favorite death metal bands come from around there.

I also was a republican youth - grew up in a fiercely conservative. fundamentalist baptist home. It took a little while for the brainwashing to wear off but I'm all good now. Well, mostly good now. Well, I have some good days now. Look, I was good several times this decade! Stop grilling me!

Anyway, glad to have you un-lurked!
