The tee-shirt order has been placed, and we hope to have word soon as to when they will be ready. And the donation to DL National has been made. Thank you all for the support.
Cass talked to Michael B. recently and he's in good spirits. He has a birthday coming up soon, so for those of us who know Michael, we might want to give him a call or email and wish him happy days ahead.
So much to talk about, most topics pretty depressing. That's why it's always best to gather and discuss with friends, with a pint or two of your favorite beverage.
DL Spartanburg gathers Tuesday March 11th, 6:00 PM at The Nu-Way. If the warm weather stays around, we'll move out to the patio! So be prepared to position yourself on the patio and pose your point of view. Or just chime in when when you feel the need.
Shout Out to Spring!

Last week a "business" moment was scheduled to talk about a new round of tee shirts. Well that didn't happen, but it's definitely going to be discussed Tuesday. We also want to talk about donating funds to DL National. National keeps our web page running. And National is where we get our pins, books, bottle openers, and much needed support. So it's going down Tuesday. If you want a shirt, show up. You can go to: carolinamade.com and pick out a color. We'll need your choice and size. Remember that the tee will have our logo, so keep that in mind when you choose a color. Tie dye is $21.00, solid color is $16.00. We'll talk about money matters Tuesday also. But if you want one, we'll try to make it happen. So the cow bell will clang around 7:30 or so to get this done. Business meetings in the past have almost become as troublesome as rocket science, so be prepared.
Ukraine. Some say that it will all work out to a somewhat peaceful end, but maybe not for the people in that area. Some say that it will escalate into a conflict between Russia and who??? What say you?
This and other topics will be on the table Tuesday, let's talk. DL Spartanburg gathers Tuesday March 4th, 6:00 PM at The Nu-way. See you there.
Inhale, Exhale, Sleep Well,

Welcome Sam! It was great having him with us last week, and we look forward to seeing him in the weeks and years to come.
Are you interested in what's going on in Columbia? Of course you are. There is a great site called "statehouse report", that will give you the status on pending legislation as well as what has become law in the great state of South Carolina. Search it, sign up, it's free, and very informative. For instance, it is now legal in SC to carry a weapon into a bar as long as you don't drink liquor. One might wonder why you would go into a bar if you weren't going to drink?
Your hosts have found an outlet to purchase t-shirts, located in Landrum, the owners are very easy with which to deal. And they can do tie-dye! So it's time to make a decision, want a tee, tie-dye or solid color, size? You can look at the available colors at: carolinamade.com. Check it out, we'll talk about it Tuesday, we'll have a short business meeting. The tie-dye would look fantastic.

The forecast looks lovely, and the prediction is for a great group gathering at our favorite tavern Tuesday for discussion dedicated to righting the world's wrongs.
We have a special, somewhat late notice announcement. Monday February 17th at 5:30 PM, Cass and Judy Allen will be addressing the Spartanburg County Council, encouraging the Council to pass a resolution calling for a constitutional amendment to repeal Citizens United, the "corporations are people and money is free speech" Supreme Court ruling. You've probably signed the petition, now is your opportunity back up your signature with your physical presence. Cass and Judy would really appreciate your support, and a good crowd just might impress the council members. The Council meets at 366 N. Church St. Spartanburg, 5:30 PM Monday February 17th.

Tuesday is approaching, but so is a bit of nasty weather. We'll be following the predictions closely, as we're certain you will be, and follow up on this reminder. But so far, it's on at The Nu-Way Tuesday Feb. 11th, 6:00 PM. Hoping to see you all there.

The best of plans can be smothered by a smattering of snow. That's what happened to us last Tuesday. It was nasty out there around 5:30. We're looking forward to hearing everyone's storm stories. Wise choices prevailed, we all have a tale or two to tell.
The State of the Union address did happen, what are your thoughts? How would you describe the current state of The United States of America? It would be interesting to know what we all have to say. So let's do this, in a few words, write down what you feel is good, what's bad, and why. Don't sign your contribution, it's always better that way. We'll put them in the Conversation Shaker and see what comes up. Should make for good discussion. And if you just want to wing it when you get to the table Tuesday, paper and pen will be provided.

It's going to be a Super Tuesday at The Nu-Way. Trevor Rodgers, organizer for the South Carolina Democratic Party will be our guest. Trevor will be talking to us about what's going on and what he does, and if you're so inclined, what you can do. We'll be listening to what he has to say around 7:30 or so.
We'll be watching the State of the Union Address on the BIG SCREEN (well, bigger than the last one anyway) after Trevor's talk. SOTU bingo cards will be available with a prize presented to the winner. (A rousing round of applause and a trinket or two) Snacks will be provided. And if you have a DL button, pin it on with pride. You know you're going to watch it, why not with a group of open-minded, opinionated folk at The Nu-Way.

We have a couple of announcements regarding our gathering January 28th. We will be having a State of the Union watch and listen party that night. These addresses are always exciting and entertaining, even more so with a group of like minded folk. Bring a friend, grab your neighbor, join us.
Also on the 28th, our guest will be Trevor Rodgers, South Carolina Democratic Party organizer, working in the Upstate. Maybe Trevor can tell us a bit about what's going on with the Democratic Party in the Upstate. And, in our desire to remain apolitical, if anyone knows of someone from a different political party that would like to talk to us, let your hosts know, we'll invite them.
