This is important because Rainier has all of 1500 people, plus outliers like me often take the 7-mile excursion to attend their lunches! The senior center is the old school gymnasium, obtained free and then transported a couple blocks to the other side of town to be installed as you see in the photo. 

No gov funds whatsoever, everything is volunteer with lunches prepared from the local food bank donations, supplemented by the small fee paid by the seniors and used for careful shopping. 

But this old old roof is on its last legs and finally, after three years of bake sales, rummage sales and grant applications, just yesterday they accumulated the full $40,000! My opinion? I think our country (USA) is really really in trouble now, and it is small fry like this -- people working the family farms, the small businesses, the service clubs Lions and such, just carrying on life as normal helping each other, that has the best chance of bringing us through this crisis perhaps the most difficult in our history. (Which is why I put this under the topic 'politics & gov')

So this is it, photo tx to the Internet, the senior center in Rainier, Washington USA. (Oh, and the Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, and the quilting club all use this for their meeting place, too.) :)

The picture showed up fine both times. Marvelous project. :)

And yes, I think you are right... it's up to the little people. They have to vote the crooks out of office and find Cincinnatus.

Oh Tink, I try to learn something every day about our USA and world difficulties...plus how to find authentic leaders...such as in, "Lessee, Gandhi learned from Tolstoy and then MLK followed in the line of Gandhi...hmmm...wonder how Tink is coming in her search for Cincinnatus..."

As you know I am doing absolutely all I can for our nation and its future, but still relieved that I don't need to be around for fifty more years of this...although I heard on the radio about a lady in the UK who celebrates her 117th birthday today...oh, no! :):sick::'(

...and as for voting out the crooks, I am wondering if we really need to go back to paper ballots...Trump with all his alternative facts I still am guessing he was accidentally correct that he won that election...

Yes, we need to go back to paper ballots, along with signature and eligibility verification.

It is no accident that Democrats favor every voting procedure that makes fraud more likely. Even the NY Times understood the increased likelihood of fraud with mail-in ballots 8 years ago.

That article is truly chilling, Tink...especially since so many elections are so close. A memory from childhood in the 1950's -- parents and ALL adults in that rural timber country, so very diligent about voting day, which back then was always in person.

Oh, and just as I was going off for something else, I saw you left an article about Ike and Warren falling-out. I did not even know about that, and I will go now to find it, ty!
