You know, I didn't hear one lie, threat or harsh word, that made me smile!

I never expected the celebrations in the streets. Never have seen a presidential election celebrated in that way before. Times Square looked like VE Day or VJ Day.

It was wonderful to see...although I doubt Trump thought that.

It was remarkable to see. My grand daughter is only 9 years old and she has experienced two events that I thought would never happen. She born when the first Black Man was President and now a woman will be the Next Vice President. I don't think it really hit me until I saw the joy in the faces of the women at the celebrations. Even in Georgia where Biden lost, there were joyous celebration.

I hope this bodes well for the future. This country needs to heal...

@Borat Sister,
You're not kidding. I was so numb I couldn't watch the election coverage on Fri and on Sat I had some 'who cares' rerun of something on the Television. My son called and told me Biden had gone over 270 and I felt this rush of relief.

@glitterbag,
Yeah, that's it. Not joy for me, but lots of relief.

The long-suffering residents of the small Austrian village of ******* have confirmed that, from January 1, the town will be known as Fugging. Fans of unusual place-names will mourn the loss.

The village is named since the 11th century after the local lord Adalpertus de Fucingin ("Adalpert von Vucckingen" in German)



Knight "Erpo of Miste" had his mansion a few miles away from my hometown in the 13th century. Since then village was called Miste.
'Miste', however, means dung heap in the Westphalian dialect.
In 1911 Miste was renamed Meiste.

@chai2,
Aelin Jade. My son met his bride on gaming platforms, and apparently Aelin is a character in their fave game.

Love the name Jade, one of my daughters and two of my granddaughters also have it as their middle names.

@JohnReesnkv,
It goes back even further to the 1990's when the platform was "Abuzz" on the New York Times online! It may have even been in the 1980's, I don't have history and I got on Abuzz in the 1990's!

It was even on "Hey Martha" also, I do believe? Iran into a few Abuzzards on Hey Martha and we made sure a lot of the old threads were revived.

@BillW,
I recall 'Abuzz'. We had a member that went by the name of Craven de Kere. In its dying days he started the MSN site called Raven's Realm. Looking for wider experience, he started A2K and finally became Robert.
