Lemon and Blueberry Cake

September 4, 2012

Cake and coffee to watch DNC2012 tonight (cocktails, beer and wine also provided).  I was not very political in my younger adult years, although I read about what was happening in every newspaper and magazine I could get my hands on in every country.  I missed some of the details being overseas half of each week but now that I am retired I have more time to focus on some of the important issues.  So we’re cutting the cake at 9 pm with a few friends and hope you have already registered to VOTE.  And call a few family members and friends to remind them too.
