What I saw from my vacation at Rehoboth Beach, DE

In Rehoboth everyone wore masks in stores and restaurants. In one store on the boardwalk had " trump 2020" masks amongst others however as most of the others had spaces where people had purchased them the trump masks were full.

On the way home only saw one trump sign in DE. What got me though as we enter PA I saw only three trump signs especially as came closer to home. In 2016 around my home it was loaded with trump signs at this time of year. So I'm looking at that as a very good sign.

P.S. I don't Biden signs are out till he's officially nominated.

National Guard is rolling into my town

My daughter-in-law just called to tell me they are passing several National Guard trucks, big and small and along with tanker truck. They just dropped me off and were heading home on Rt. 72.

There is to be a protest tonight. We saw that the county Courthouse was being totally fenced off with what we call around here, snow fence. We are close to Fort Indiantown Gap where a lot of the Guard trains.

I live in PA about 10 to 12 miles east of Hershey. We are just a small town that is red as can be.

Hope everybody stays safe as we are still in the yellow phase of reopening.

Just sent my ballot in the mail for PA primary.

Got my ballot and proudly voted for Joseph Biden. Can't wait for November. Needs to be post marked by Tuesday so it came just in time for me to make post marked deadline.

Just a note: Gabbard and Sanders are on the ballot also.

Anyone else having trouble

Getting through to their bank to check if stimulus payment has arrived.

Called this morning and it rang and rang, no answer. Now when I called the number, there isn't even a ring it just cuts off after a couple seconds. What is going on?

I want to thank whoever gave me first heart.

To my surprise, somehow my first heart had triplets.

Hi everyone,

I'm Kathy and I'm from the Alabama part of Pennsylvania. Have been around for quiet awhile and finally got the courage to join in. After the election I got so disgusted with cable news I came here to keep in touch with what's going on in the world around me. Thanks to DU I've been able to keep what little sanity I have.
