It’s hard to believe, but spring is only three weeks away. Time to crawl out of our burrows, blink at the sunlight, and congratulate each other on surviving. Come below the Cheeto, where it’s warm and welcoming…and scroll down for news about our Special Guest!

Unlike weatherdude’s personal troll, I cannot predict what sort of weather we’ll encounter by the time we meet, but it can’t be much worse than what we’re looking forward to today. So, let’s all be optimists for once (even me!). Stay well, eat lightly the night before so as to leave room for fries

010

(mmmmm – fries!),

and plan to wear your third-warmest coat instead of your warmest one. Perhaps we can go outside after brunch to gambol and frolic with garlands of flowers in our hair!

In keeping with the new focus of NEW DAY (now known as Connect! Unite! Act!), I will be talking about my personal election activism agenda  for this year: which campaigns I plan to volunteer for, what sort of work I hope to do for them, and which ones I expect to support financially, and why. Please join me in this, and come prepared to discuss your plans for moving our country left next Election Day – even a little bit!

Update: we will be having that Special Guest Star! It's Juliana Forlano, known on DailyKos as IronicNews. She's a political satirist and the host of the news parody series Absurdity Today. I hope you'll all welcome her - she knows how to do politics and have fun at the same time!
And as always…the nuts and bolts:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
