Much love going out to KrisAinTx for being the Torch Bearer and bringing us together to this wonderful place of sharing and caring first thing in the morning. Yes, there are bears here. Also much love going out to this community, a group of folks with big hearts who enjoy the beginning of the day together. And, of course, big thanks to Jane Hamsher for creating this site in the first place.

I woke up earlier than I planned this morning, so I came in to start the coffee and noticed that someone had put up a beautifully hand-painted Eggzit sign over the door. I think it was Nonquixote. Thanks, guy. If we need to make a hasty retreat, we know where to go.

It’s kinda scary and weird and totally strange to be sitting in this chair, but Richard would oftentimes end with something sweet. Some of your know that I’ve taken up walking in the park second thing in the morning. I thought this quote from Ellen DeGeneres would be nice to share.

“My grandmother started walking five miles a day when she was sixty. She’s ninety-seven now, and we don’t know where the heck she is.”

Coffee, Tea and non-lint croissants and bagels are on the counter. I recommend the salmon cream cheese.
