Chill out, because in the words of Obama "Yes, we Can!"

Barack Obama will be inaugurated as President of the USA tomorrow and I feel quite excited about it. I was reading thelondonpaper on the way home from work and laughed out loud on the tube because Ben & Jerry's have released a special edition of ice cream called "Yes, Pecan!"
hahahahaha :)

So I think this is a wonderful, simple and poweful motto which is very affirming and opens our minds to opportunity which has potential to manifest (Yes, Pecan and Yes We Can!)

I will try to leave work as close after 4pm GMT to race home so I can see it happen live on the television. I reckon his speech will be legendary, inspiring and also sobering given the current realities of our economy, our climate and the conflicts which are all around us.

On a slightly different note, I just read an interesting article on the BBC website - a study which indicates that if you're calm and relaxed throughout life, you're less likely to develop dementia in your old age. So all I can say then is to do your best to CHILL OUT, be happy, and try not to worry too much because it doesn't do anyone any good, least of all yourself.

Yeah, Abby !
You are excited; not ask an American if he/she is excited :
I'm ready and we will do a special happy hour today to commemorate the Inauguration.

Hugs to you & bless you for your and yes, your Mum's enthusiasm
