That mojo theme looks just about right Debra, thanks for looking at something different, smaller etc.  :hug I would also enjoy that.

Well, it may not be realistic, I guess we shall see if anyone gathers on the 13th.

Well I guess I need to know what u mean Debra, by a community to sustain it. Does that mean regular postings, w/ new members? I have already given the link to only 2 who I think would benefit so much from our community. FB where it is the place to go for organizing is woefully unproductive. We are not just organizers, we are people going thru a very difficult & trying time in our country's history. I don't need to say Economy and can't afford the groceries, or seniors selling their gold rings to sustain the other, or privileged legislation that leaves so many out, do I? Or Security Gone 5-Eyes. The hardships & chicanery has us bested right now, but I see a different future for all. And we need a place to discuss. Do we need $cash to sustain BnR? If so, we need to know.

I want the board to live on. I've met so many new ndp young friends/supporters and I think they would love a place to hang. But very select invitations of course. I'm adding - I have met some very young/middle age NDP supporters obviously because of the upcoming election. (altho personally it is 2019 I'm looking forward to) who want a place, nay need, a place to discuss/debate/share. They feel quite unnatural to be on FB. If I could get say 5 to join and someone else could get 5 of their friends to join, is there any chance we could save Bread n Roses? If not, I totally understand, our history is so darn special. But perhaps we also need to discuss/debate of what's happening to us individually and to our country, it's the next 4 years when we make it or break it.

Friday the 13th, should be an auspicious day Debra. Will there be a cache?

I guess I knew this was coming & wondered when you would announce; it makes sense of course. You've been a wunnerful host and very understanding of our unspeakable grief. We got punched in the gut and it knocked the wind out of some of us, it did me, that's for sure. I have come to the board to re-live some of our funniest moments, when we were giddy and still ignorant enough we didn't know exactly where Canada was headed and fervently wished it was not like the U.S.  Now we're living it and it's not funny at all. My personal e-mail has not changed in 11 years and I can be PM'ed if anyone wants it. I don't use my real name on FB or the NDP sites, as I lost trust in being online post-'06.

I'm leaving Toronto end of February, and going further northeast where all my family resides. Daughter will stay in TO and my BF of 32 years will still be here; since I'm not changing docs or dentists I'll be coming down quite often. Hope to see you all on the 13th.  :popcorn

No the same, I know, but here's Pogge and Skdadl and comments on the Wayback Machine
Scroll arows at top,

Thanks Alison, that was grand. Still searching for the correct keys on my laptop...shyt. May I introduce a grand plan on behalf of skdadl and pogge?

Indeed, we all respected her privacy, which is a good thing, but I'm so very sad about how she ended up so reclusive when she was ill.

I can't stop thinking about that specifically and oh the loss of Rob for her. It is that I am so discombobulated about mostly. We are all thinking about our own mortality here, yet we wonder how Rob's death could be so 'sudden' when he had the acumen to disable, so he knew what he was faced with. So young, it doesn't make sense to me. We don't know details, we never will, so we find acceptance somehow. It is all we can do.

And even tho pogge would never approve of this, I give you for Friday night: This Mortal Coil

I can't even imagine how Susan dealt w/ Robin's sudden death, it must have been heart wrenching for her. And now we all meet up again under such awful conditions. To find out about both of those dear souls in less than 24 hours, it's too much. What is happening to our generation that people should die so young?  :crying Condolences to all of you and a big hug.

Just wretched news, her b-day is next month too and I don't remember how old she would be. I can't process it at all.  :crying  I kept the pristine white candle I burnt for our dear Boom-Boom, I shall light it again now for our dear skdadl.  :crying

Mic check, oh you glittering twitterati

About Ted Musson, 72 year old guy with arthritis, walking from Victoria to Ottawa to protest election fraud.
After two years he has exactly one follower on twitter.
Can you help get the word out about him however you can?
Thank you.

h/t Toe for the heads up about him

He hasn't returned e-mail to friend or to you as of yet I'm guessing. I wish we knew where he was, his routes etc.

Meantime the Senate is flexing their muscle: (well they don't have much choice) Nothing yet re compelling testimony, which for me is the clinchpin.

"The table is now set for a compromise or a standoff. The House of Commons committee will resume consideration of the bill in two weeks, and soon after it will consider amendments. If they do not make the Senate’s changes, they risk the Conservative majority in the Senate amending it anyhow and sending it back to the House, an exceptionally rare occurrence. Doing so would all but guarantee the government won’t meet its previously set target of June for passing the Fair Elections Act."

oops wrong thread.
