    Wish I could go. I will be going to the local march in Boston. I've seen those hats...wish I still knit!

    I'll be driving a lot of other old ladies to a "Save Medicare" rally Saturday.

    I went to Obama's inauguration in 08. For those of us not used to the cold, it was really challenging. I will be marching in Bay Area or in our capitol. My sister who is a nurse, will be marching and I think it is her first march.

    One of our hospitalists is going with one of my ICU co-workers to D.C. for a protest march planned there. I believe that this march is taking place on or around the 1/20/2017 inauguration. . . .

    I knew that both were politically active. Did not know they were as active to travel for a protest march. I do admire them. I certainly join them with their heart-felt concerns, frustrations and anger. (Amy and I will be in Florida during the march in Washington.)

    Can't afford the trip, but will have a candle lit for good weather, calm cops and a clear message.

    Stay nasty, women!

    With all that is happening I may have to join Facebook to keep up with the groups.
    Did anyone hear the Presidents farewell speech?

    I planned to go to Washington, but the Airbnb house that friends from NY and I were going to rent was an outrageous price. Far too costly. So my friends will participate in NYC protest and I will go to local protest in Lexington, KY.

    Lots of people were asking that. It was reported in the news this morning that she stayed in DC because she has a test at school today.
