Gathering Reminder

Greetings Everyone,

There is good news to share this week. Review Carolina Curtain.com wrote a wonderful review of the Spartanburg Little Theater production "Rock of Ages". And the review singled out our own Jim Huber! The next performances are July 20, 21, and 22. Get your tickets and be prepared for a wonderful experience, you won't be disapointed. The performances are at The Chapman Cultural Center, not a bad seat in the house.

The U.S Senate has voted to legalize hemp. You can't smoke it, or make brownies with it. But you can make just about anything else you can imagine with it. Hemp can replace the world's use of plastic.

France won the World Cup. The Chulicks have a warm spot in their hearts for the people of France. Ask Al about The French Wedding sometime.

Hello Everyone,

We all welcome the good news of four young soccer players rescued from a cave in Chiang Rai, Thailand. And as of this evening, the rescue efforts have begun again. Keep positive thoughts in your mind for the rest of the team that they come out safely also.

Hello Everyone,

There was a time when nothing newsworthy happened on the weekends. Everyone just chilled out, the news outlets took a break, and life just slowed down for a couple days. That time is not now. As you all know, on Friday Justice Kennedy announced his resignation effective July 31st. And there seems to be a situation where Kennedy's son, an associate with a foreign bank, had influence in the lending of one billion dollars to the trump organization. And now trump wants to fill Kennedy's seat before the mid-terms. It's sometimes hard not to feel depressed with all that is happening, but don't get depressed, get on the phones, get on the street, get out the vote.

So, done with the rambling. Spartanburg Drinking Liberally gathers Tuesday July 3rd, 6:30 PM at Southport Bar and Grill, 629 Southport Road (HWY 295). Bring your concerns to the corner.

Peace,

Hello Everyone,

Our Tenth Anniversary Pub Crawl was a huge success! The estimated head count can be placed at between 25 and 35. Some of us came early and left early, some of us met up mid crawl, and some of us experienced the totality. All the businesses were welcoming, and the service was excellent. And at least three new people were very interested in gathering with us on Tuesdays. Thank you all for making this a fun, successful day!

A big "Thank You" goes out to Scott and Donna, owners of Image Printing, Spartanburg for suppling the fans! They made quite an impression as we were walking around our fine city. They even helped us stop traffic as we jay-walked! We are all fans of the fan and of Image Printing!

There are runoff elections Tuesday June 26th. Tell your friends and neighbors to vote. We'll be watching the results at our gathering Tuesday.

Hello All,

Tuesday is election day, as if we all didn't know. The primaries are very important. Drag our friends and neighbors to the polls, then gather with us to watch the returns Tuesday evening.

Hello Everyone,

The primary election is fast approaching. On June 12th invite your friends and neighbors to join you at the polls. And according to the Overseas Adventure Travel calendar, June 12th is also Russia Day. Since 1992 June 12th has been recognized as the day that the Declaration of the Sovereignty of the Russian Federation was signed. Just a thought to keep in mind when you go to vote.

It's been a rough week for all of us. There is trump and his legal team. But there people we knew who lost there lives in the flooding. And there are people we know fighting back the water in and around their homes. And there are good friends struggling to survive cancer. Hugs all around at the table Tuesday.

Greetings To You All,

All of us have the feeling of being overwelmed by the hourly situations that come about through the trump administration. What to do, where to turn, how can we control this? Impeachment is one solution, but we all know you can impeach a president but that president would need to face a trial by the Senate to be removed from office. Another solution is to vote and vote and vote in every election that comes your way, from city all the way up. And tell your friends and neighbors to do the same.

Spartanburg Drinking Liberally gathers Tuesday May 22nd, 6:30 PM at Southport Bar and Grill, 629 Southport Road (Hwy 295). We can discuss and cuss in our corner. Diane will be with us!!

Peace,

Diane, Cass,and Al
