Happy holidays from London!

Hello folks, just wanted to drop a quick line to say happy holidays. My husband and I are visiting family in London and are heading to Rome tomorrow. Internet access for Krista has been a little shabby and not the highest on her list of priorities. However, I’m taking notes from my father-in-law on his volunteering for Democrats Abroad here in England and will try to tell you all about it when I have a bit more time. The ex-pats in England were working their darndest to send votes Obama’s way in November, and it’s been interesting to hear about. Obama is still on the minds of the British – we met up with one of my friends yesterday, and he had a lot of questions and comments about the election. Then, when we went to Carols by Candlelight at the Royal Albert Hall last night, the conductor brought up all the change over the last year, including our new President. The entire hall was cheering about that. It’s a lot different from our last visit, when Brits were bombarding us with commentary about how horrible Bush was and how could Americans have voted for him. I’d say we’re in a good place. Enjoy your holiday, and everyone enjoy shopping tomorrow.
