Last night I went to a fantastic "Christmas in July" backyard party given by...

one of my neighbors. She is an accountant who's family comes from Puerto Rico and the food was incredible, roast pulled pork, black beans and rice and even eggnog ice cream with dolce de leche cake! Christmas lights and snowmen and reindeer!

Her friends from work, church, her family and many neighbors attended. It was an incredibly diverse evening, folks from Cuba, England, Germany, Eqypt, Mexico, Spain, South Africa, California, Texas, New York, New Jersey and many more. All ages and several religions including me, the Atheist.

Many brought guitars and drums and the music was terrific.

The best part of the evening was that every person there (as far as I could tell and I talk to everybody) was a Hillary supporter! It was so pleasant to be in a great big happy group of people who not only loved Hillary and were active in supporting her but they really hated Republicans! Even the Cuban business owner (I thought he would be a hold out). Many were teachers and no one is more anti republican in NJ after Christie slammed and smeared them and then defunded the schools.

Politics was the popular subject of the evening. I have never talked politics at a party and everyone agreed with me! No one even mentioned Bernie Sanders name once. It was like he didn't exist. I have to get out more!

4. Thanks. I have had the pleasure of meeting both the Clintons and they are such warm,

caring and kind people. This is the way I always think of her.

8. I met Hillary at a fund raiser at the Stoney Hill Inn in 2008.

I was invited by a donor. She really is so charming in person. I met President Clinton while he was campaigning for his first run. He had just given an incredible speech from the old courthouse steps in Jersey City and he met with a small group afterwards. The speech was stirring and we were all pretty star struck!

9. I invited everyone to my Big Barbeque in August....

I've been surprised a few times this year. Liberal isn't a "bad word" anymore! It only took 35 years!
