      Mary Stewart was a best-selling author for much of the 20th century. I first stumbled across her as a child, reading the “The Hollow Hills” and the “Crystal Cave”, two of her books about Merlin, but most of what she wrote were adventurous romances, often described as “Nancy Drew for adults.” Recently I read her book “Airs Above The Ground”, written in 1965.

Raindrops from around the web

Thanks to all you readers who sent me suggestions on who to include on the blogroll. Every single one of them has been worth reading. Here are a couple of posts from the blogroll that are worth a read:

Let’s assume that come the general election, Hillary wins the states she has won and loses the states Obama has won. Similarly, Obama wins the states he has won so far and loses the states Hillary has won. Do the math and tell me who is the more viable candidate.

Hillary — 205 Electoral votes (FL, NH, AR, NV, MI, NY, NJ, TN MA, OK, CA, AZ)
Obama — 110 Electoral votes (IA, MO, GA, SC, ID, NM, AL, IL, AK, KS, UT, DE, ND, MN)
If you are math challenged, you are an Obama supporter

THIS is why we have Superdelegates. They do the math so we don’t have to. (Clinton people had this figured out on Tuesday night. And they said Obama has all the smart college edumacated supporters.)

  • This post at Shakesville, “Damned if you do…” by Melissa McKewn, explains the unacknowledged morass going on in many women’s heads this primary season. Just go read it. And mum’s the word.
  • The Clinton Cocktail Hour was a response to a challenge that Kos made to us poor Clinton supporters on DKos. He implied we didn’t have any friends or places to go, so we created one. Since my exile, the Cocktail Hour has lived on, tended diligently by the remnant of Hillary supporters who put up with the crazies on our behalf. I like having Cocktail Hour here as well or at least Nightcaps and I see that people are checking them out. But few people post and that sort of defeats the purpose of having cocktails in the first place. So, I’d like your advice. Should it stay or should it go? And if it stays, what day of the week is good? And finally, does anyone have any good cocktail music to recommend? I will take requests.
  • We are here and there. I suspect we’re a much greater number of bloggers and readers than our anemic numbers at DailyKos would indicate. If you are a reader and you feel that you’ve been thrown out of your tribe, never fear, you are in very good company. Obamagasms can’t last forever. And in the meantime, we are building a stable alternative blogoverse to carry on when the Big Blog Stores become mere shadows of their former selves. We will find each other, like rain, coalescing into streams, seeking the path of least resistance and merging into one mighty river. Hang in there.

  1. riverdaughter – I really appreciate the Clinton Cocktail Hour and hope that it continues even after she becomes President! Thanks for creating this alternative space. Just think how it will look once HRC is President. Thank you. Thank you and thank you!

  2. I was never a DKos fan…I found its navigation horrendous. I do read it once in awhile, but like you, I got tired of the Obamamania there, not to mention the Hillary haters. (Don’t get me started on DU!) So, I’m glad to find this little corner of the Web.

    Now, please explain about the Clinton Cocktail Hour!

  3. Clinton Cocktail Hour was a response to Kos who taunted the Hillary supporters one day about how we never made the rec list. So I wrote a diary called The Clinton Cocktail Hour and 20 minutes later, made the rec list. The diary was really popular so I kept it as a regular Friday feature until I was troll stormed off Dkos back in January. The last Clinton Cocktail Hour was cross posted at Taylor Marsh’s blog. Here was the entry: The Cocktail Hour- Valentine’s day edition
