Pennsylvanian’s Its on you now…

I have never looked up to Moore but I read this endorsement from Michael Moore and I was impressed. "Obama the movement" and I am part of it. The movement that has excited many folks like me. I really hope he wins tomorrow. I hope Pennsylvanian’s denounce the negative tactics of Hillary and elect Obama.

It is amazing Hillary calls Obama a elitist. If elitist means more intelligent that makes sense but a black man raised by single mom who choose public service instead of high paying job is elitist and First Lady married to Bill Clinton the governor and president is not. I just don’t get it. I have stopped watching TV because of Hillary and her negative campaign. I hope and pray Pennsylvanians do the right thing tomorrow.

What we are witnessing is not just a candidate but a profound, massive public movement for change. My endorsement is more for Obama The Movement than it is for Obama the candidate.

That is not to take anything away from this exceptional man. But what’s going on is bigger than him at this point, and that’s a good thing for the country. Because, when he wins in November, that Obama Movement is going to have to stay alert and active. Corporate America is not going to give up their hold on our government just because we say so. President Obama is going to need a nation of millions to stand behind him

Mt. Rainier: Copper Creek Lodge

This weekend we visited Copper Creek Lodge near Mt. Rainier. We reached the lodge on Saturday evening. The house/lodge was GORGEOUS!!! Just 2 miles from the entrance of Mt. Rainier. It had a rustic log home feel to it.

We all had lot of fun. We played multiple card games, played Taboo, had some drinks and sat in the outdoor hot tub in middle of night at freezing temperatures. 🙂 It was amazing. 🙂

Today morning we went to Mt. Rainier visitor center at Paradise. We also stopped at a water fall on our way. Whole mountain was covered with snow. It was beautiful but most of the trails and views were snowed out.

Visiting Palm Springs

Palm Springs is a small desert town near LA. I had some official work for 4 days in Palms Springs. We drove from LA to Palm Springs. Palm Springs is an Oasis in the desert. The city is full of Golf courses and Wind Farms. It was amazing to see so many Golf courses in one place. If you love Golf or love to laze around the pool this is your destination. The only problem we had was we don’t enjoy either. 🙂

We loved the place and our resort hotel was beautiful. We stayed at Westin Hills Resort. I was too busy to do anything but I found couple of hours to visit Aerial Tramway. The view from the top was beautiful and we could see how a desert, Golf Courses and Wind Farms come together.

Weekend in LA

Last weekend we got a chance to visit LA. It was an amazing weekend. Swati got a chance to meet Sonaly her friend from Mumbai. Sonaly lives in LA with her family.

We visited Santa Monica Pier in the morning and had brunch at Mariasol restaurant. The restaurant is on the ocean and has real great views of the Pacific Ocean. Food was ok but views filled in the gap. 🙂

From Santa Monica Pier we went to Rodeo drive to check out the most happening place in LA fashion. 🙂 The street has shops from every designer. You can easily spend $$$$$ on Rodeo street in few hours. Swati liked a dress too. 🙂 Not sure what I will have to do to afford it. :):):)
