Hello, sorry it has been soo long....

I apologize for not blogging as of late, when your thyroid doesn't want to work with you, your body doesn't want to listen
Now, that I am back on track hopefully for a while I wanted to express what has been on my mind as of late...
I have been watching our government and I am not encouraged by how things are going this my fault, I voted,  not for Trump, but I voted, does my vote count I'm not sure anymore???
I, for the first time, I did not vote locally, not because I didn't want to a lot of it was how do I know who I am voting for? Do I REALLY know who I am voting for?? Our local intented nominees didn't do the tradional door to door meet and greet or hold a local rally or even put out flyers, or even local ad on tv instead a week before we are to vote I got letters in the mail, explaining who they were what their cause was and is and how they plan to make our county a better place to live and go vote on Tuesday , there were a few vote for me signs in people's yard, so HOW am I supposed to be the informed voter IF I HAVE NO CLUE on who to vote for??
Is this the new norm for how our intended nominees plan for their people to vote if they don't know we can just do our agenda and no one be the wiser, well, that's NOT how I was taught in Civics class it is OUR RIGHT to vote, it is OUR DUTY to keep our local government accountable because our local government turns into STATE government and WE MUST keep state accountable, because state government turns into NATIONAL and WE MUST, MUST MUST, keep our NATIONAL GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABLE, we MUST keep our local constitution, our state constitution and above all OUR NATIONAL constitution the way our forefathers intended.
See, how all of this works?? Have we lost how our government works from local all the way to national government, are our teachers not teaching civics classes anymore to where people even know how government works ?? WE MUST take back how local , state and NATIONAL voting process is done we must keep all forms of government honest as we as well them keeping us informed, how do we do this?? How do we do this with governments seemingly more secretive, more deceptive and more dishonest? WE keep voting, WE keep civics classes in schools WE educate ourselves WE hold rallies and town halls call OUR local and state representatives we hold OUR government ACCOUNTABLE for what they say and do, WE ARE THEIR BOSSES, REMEMBER WE VOTE FOR YOU! ~ Andrea

Happy New Year!

    What a year 2016 was, some say it was the worst, others say it was the best, others say it was the most confusing, aggrivating, surprising, saddening and chaotic year many of us have seen in a long when while. I agree.
     I am hoping that 2017 sees us wealthy, healthy, happy and wise. As President Obama leaves, many of us are saddened at his and his family's departure, he is the most beloved president since President Reagan.                      .                       We now are faced with many uncertainties about OUR future as a country, a nation, a people, we MUST remain strong, remain resilient, and hold on strong to OUR constitution protect it and NEVER forget what OUR forefathers fought for, what the Statue of Liberty means for Soo, Soo many of those, many of whom are OUR ancestors, many who have seeked a better life, and for those who are seeking a better life today.     WE are the ones who make AMERICA GREAT, WE THE PEOPLE! Let US NOT FORGET that, because THAT is how AMERICA has ALWAYS been, if WE loose sight of this, WE have LOST AMERICA  it's STRENGTH, its PRIDE and it's PEOPLE, do WE REALLY want to loose what WE have fought so hard for OUR FREEDOM!~ANDREA
