Watching the State of The Union Address – From My Computer

I was sneaking in some blogging while my babysitter is here – and found out through the Twitter hashtag #SOTU that the State of the Union address was not only tonightbut starting in a few minutes.  So I opened up a new Firefox tab and went to the CBS News Live Video.  As I am typing this, I am also listening to the State of the Union address – getting teary eyed thinking about how happy I am that Barack Obama is President.

So turn on your TV's or watch Live Video's on your PC to make sure you don't miss out on the State of the Union address. To make sure my kids don't miss out on the historic speech, I am going into the other room and turning the speech on our TV.

 

Watching The Obama Inaguration – Online

J0440225
Today is such an exciting day, it has been hard to sleep. Instead – at 12am this morning – I started following the Inauguration sites and am watching the news. At breakfastime, I shared these online sites with my sons, one of whom reads and likes to read to his brothers.

UPDATE: Exciting tech news making the Inauguration rounds is the update to the Whitehouse website:  Whitehouse.gov. I have a feeling we will be able to get much more information online then in the last administration! TechCrunch and Momocrats posted about the Whitehouse.gov remodel -so click over and have a read for more information: TechCrunch: Whitehouse.gov Has A New Face, And a Blog, Momocrats: New Whitehouse.gov is live. I can't wait to show my sons the new Whitehouse.gov website!

Here are my picks of online sites and products related to Obama and the Inauguration:

UPDATE: Just came back from the Momocrats breakfast hosted by Quaker Oats at the house of food blogger extraordinaire CityMama. At the event, I saw one more thing to add to the list. Glennia had what is rightfully called "Obama bling" on.

 

I Am Getting My DNC Coverage From MOMocrats!

My husband is in the other room watching the DNC while I read the posts on Momocrats. This is an exciting step for moms and online political influence – they have an official blogger pass to the convention floor and have been spread out covering different events.
