“As women achieve power, the barriers will fall. As society sees what women can do, as women see what women can do, there will be more women out there doing things, and we’ll all be better off for it.”

– Ruth Bader Ginsburg

  Vote.  VOTE. VOTE. Not only for President but for Congress.  Not only for national but for state and local leaders where people, women people, get their start in politics.  Vote for school board and dog catcher and coroner.  Educate yourself.  Read both sides.  Use your best judgment and  


   Moved to do more?  Here are some addresses for organizations that are doing postcard campaigns to remind people to vote.  You add a personal message and drop them in the mail.  Most provide postage so you won’t even have to spend a cent. There are more at local and state levels also.  

“Fight for the things that you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to join you."

"To make life a little better for people less fortunate than you. That's what I think a meaningful life is. One lives not just for oneself, but for one's community."



  1. If you president had one minute particle of RBG's decency, intelligence and wisdom your country would be light years better off. May her memory be a blessing.

  2. I hope your elections find a better leader.

  3. I was so saddened to hear of her death. I fear the result from tRump and McConnell will not be good at all.

  4. Well said. These things need to be done.

  5. Never heard of the lady until I saw her photo on Twitter. Seems she did a lot.
    May she RIP.

  6. Yes, I agree, VOTE! I have applied and been accepted for mail in ballet this year because I expect to be in Maine on voting day.💖

  7. "RBG" was certainly a trail blazer. To think that the "baboon" is rushing through a replacement beggars
    I had the privilege of knowing 3 justices of the High Court of Australia.
    Chief Justice Murray Gleeson was 4 years ahead of my class at "Joeys". ( St.Joseph's College, Hunters Hill)
    Justice Mary Gaudron, the first appointed female Justice, to the High Court
    was in the same year as I was at the catholic school in Moree in the 1950's.
    and Justice Michael Kirby lived in the street next to my family when we
    moved to Concord, Sydney. They were all members of the High Court at the same time!
    All as is the rule here retired at the mandatory age of 70 - NOTE 70 years of age.
    I can assure you they did not retire to the scrap heap - exceedingly generous pensions
    for life, all continued working in either top law firms, or professorships at Universities
    and in the case of Michael Kirby for the United nations on war crimes tribunals etc.
    Michael Kirby was also a leader of the "Gay Rights" movement and for those people who wished to be married.
    This has been passed here by Federal Parliament after a referendum of the people.

    For God's sake people of "Planet America" ( a political satire TV show here on the USA but now a rather scary real life
    show - Trump style!) vote and vote only once. Even Adolf Hitler when he was elected didn't mention /suggest or order
    the German people of vote twice!

    Another tit-bit - note Adolf Hitler / Donald Trump - have 11 letters in their names! I hope this isn't a bad omen.
    We've suffered one Fuhrer.........we don't want another.
    Get rid of Trump and the USA can return to Planet Earth......we can but hope.
    Good luck and vote.
    PS: E-mail with more details following Cynthia.

  8. RBG was a force of nature, as well as brilliant and ethical. Her death is a tragedy for the U.S. in many ways. I will most certainly vote, and will hope for the best. (but so far, 2020 hasn't shown me much of that)

  9. She was a giant among both sexes throughout the ages. This was such a huge, huge loss.

  10. I didn't know those huge wood storks spoon bills were that far north of Florida where as seen them. The only fungi I gather in Minnesota are morels because they are the only ones I know how to identify. :-)
