No mush here.

lyle

No bullshift, either.

I see my Terps on well on their way to a 50+ point loss. Making me proud.

Beasts of England

A plethora of weisenheimers, though...

Ahh, a good SAT word, Beasts. Funny how those get remembered.

I thought this from The Week in Pictures was very funny;

Lots to do and hold.

Rocco

Funny is right!

I actually got something accomplished today. I cleaned cupboards and a closet and brought lots of stuff to the Salvation Army. The weather here is beautiful! I noticed a steady stream of traffic going back into Bangor while driving home. I'm sure lots of folks were apple picking at the orchard down the road from us. A perfect New England Saturday,apple picking,corn maze and ice cream!

maryd

Amen,Marlene. Also a perfect day for the Antique car parade in Littleton!

Marlene

Sounds like fun maryd! I'd love to get over to the mountains this fall, we will be in NH the end of October,but the foliage will gone by then.

maryd

Marlene, I know you're busy with family when you're here, but if you could ever stop by for lunch we would love to meet you'

Beasts of England

Do you ever eat at Moe's Original Bar B Que in Bangor, Marlene?

Jack is Back!

maryd,

How far are you from Hanover and Canaan. We will be bringing Frederick back up to Cardigan Mountain School next June.

Stephanie, you're welcome.
If you have any inside info on the Cruz campaign please send it my way.

On the other hand if you have any input into the campaign, please tell them to quit sending requests for money. So far today I think I have seen 3.
We're told a cost of living increase is unlikely but every thing seems to be up but gas. Items that were $1.85 are now $2.15 and that kind of increase seems to be on every thing.

Beasts of England

Listening to my Tide on the radio and watching a great game in The Swamp!

Marlene

Beasts,no we haven't. Hubby makes a pretty good pulled pork.in fact he's at the cabin this week-end with "the guys"(they've been kayaking all day) and he's making pulled pork tonight. I expect leftovers!

Refs are blowing calls on both sides of the ball in The Swamp.

Awful.

Amatuers.

Catching up, just a comment for those who asked on the last thread about upgrading from Win 7 to Win 10. I've done it on two computers. One has had no problem, but another has had repeated loss of internet connections. Apparently this is not an unusual problem, as Google turns up lots of similar complaints. Unlike Win 7, the troubleshooter actually does frequently solve the problem. (One of the funniest things about the Win 7 troubleshooter is that it when it invariably fails to solve a problem, it asks if you want to try something else, and if you do, the main option it offers is "Ask a friend.") Anyway, probably worth trying, as you can go back to Win 7 if you have a problem with Win 10. But aside from the troubleshooter I haven't seen any huge improvement either.

Beasts of England

You should try it sometime, Marlene - it's very good. Some friends of mine are the founders and it originated here. Not sure how they ended up in Maine!

Jack is Back!

The Tennessee QB has a curricla that no other QB in the history of QB's has ever had and that incliudes the ones at CalTech where the cheer was "impede them, impede them, make them reliquish the ball".

Marlene

maryd,I think I've mentioned that my father spent his young life in Littleton/Lyman. When my youngest sister was in NH this summer,she and my mother took a trip to the north country and visited the cemetery where my father's mother and little brother are buried. My father was three years old when his mother died. I remember so many trips to the north country to visit my maternal great grandparents. My father adored them.
His father (my grandfather) remarried the woman that I always knew as my grandmother,a wonderful,loving woman. She used to feed us candy. :) Family lore says my father was a red-headed hellion,but his new mother (she was 16!) knew how to handle him!

Marlene

Beasts,yes we will try it.

Jane

Just had a wonderful goodbye visit with TC...I love my JOM family.

Marlene

Jane,see you in Florida! We will be in Venice Jan.-March. Hubby's cousin lives in Port Charlotte and they already have kayaking trips planned. Safe travels!

maryd

JiB, we are frequent travelers to Hanover, as I did a little time in what my doctor calls "the big house" three years ago (That's Dartmouth Hitchcock medical center) I actually did not know where Canaan is, but I see it's also less than than an hour and a half away. Littleton is very close to 93 and 91, and northeast of Hanover. If your schedule permits a trip up here, we would love to see you for lunch or dinner or whatever, but I would have no problem with a meet-up down there. I will deliver a big batch of chocolate chip cookies for Frederik's camping experience. (Be sure to tell him I use the recipe from Tate's Bake shop.)

Jack is Back!

maryd used a secret we try to keep secret but they don't - Tate's Bakery on North Sea Road as you leave Southampton for the highway. I think they have gone nationally and have a large bakery to make them.

They are a great example of American Exceptioinalism. Started out as a one person bakery making breads, cakes, and a chocolate chip cookie that was unbelieable. Went through a legal battle a few years back. But everyone with a grocery started to carry them, even the farm stands. All of a sudden they are NY Times material and Wall St. takes notice.

It is the best chocolate chip cookie ever and you can get it gluten free.

Marlene

maryd,bring Jack to the Littleton Diner. :)

I think I meant my paternal great grandparents in my previous comment.

Jane

I look forward to it Marlene!

Gators can't tackle. That will not win any football game.

NYT

"The Post-Boehner Congress and Washington's Sense of Dread"

No need to read it to extend them a hearty FU, Slimes.

Jack is Back!

BTW, we have two (used to be 4) apple trees in our backyard in Southampton. Today Frederick had 2 buddies over and they picked the tree for about 30 apples. We peeled them on a traditional peeler. Cored and sliced them and made a pie.

What is more American than that? Oh I know, we put a scoop of ice cream on it.

nothing great about it down 20-7.

maryd

JiB -- totally agree about Tate's. All of their goods are wonderful but the chocolate chip cookies are off the charts. The best part is that if you use her recipe, you produce the real deal.

Janet S.

Just had a wonderful goodbye visit with TC...I love my JOM family.

Jane = Sturbridge, Massachusetts to me! hah!

The Mass. JOM team had me so engaged that I'm sure people on FB thought I was from there for awhile. I flooded the newsfeed with links about wonderful Sean Bielat, phony Cherokee Warren, sickening John F'n Kerry, Scott Brown, the Sturbridge Tea Party, numerous sickening Kennedy stories,...

Spent the afternoon walking around Sag Harbor. Lovely day.

Beasts of England

Sorry about that, rich. It was a good back and forth early on.

lyle

Oh goody. The unctuous Charlie Rose fellates Putin on 60 Minutes tomorrow. Tastefully I'm sure.

lyle

That Gator Clap never ceases to annoy.

Stephanie

What's with the blue tarp under the Gators cheerleaders? Afraid they'll start grazing in public?

Gators score.

Janet S.

this was an interesting thought (from some TV show my husband is watching)...

The MFM don't ask the hard questions because they're afraid of the answers.

They just cannot grill leftist politicians on their foundational beliefs or on the consequences of leftist ideas....it would expose the insanity.
They don't question Muslims on the actual tenets of Islam.
They don't dig into the AGW, "green" corruption...but rather they attack anyone who does.

Jack is Back!

thanks, lyle. We love to annoy.

Its part of Gator culture as Bests will tesitify.

Beasts of England

Steph wins the thread!!

Stephanie-

I could start grazing on her ...

I denounce myself.

It's THE classic SEC joke. Couldn't resist.

Wow Janet, that made me cry. Caro is so talented. She made the signs,designed the shirts, took the pix, made the video.

WOW!

Thank you so much for posting that. The first thing I brought to Port Charlotte was the official poster. You better come down and see it!

lyle

The Gator Chomp isn't as annoying as FSU's chant, I'll admit.

rich@gmu

then the annual F$U-UF match up brings you to tears.

Sucks the worst. Hands down.

Mary Katherine Ham's eulogy of her husband Jake Brewer is lovely, and funny and very moving.

Didn't some magazine have a similarly phony photoshopped cover of Hillary?

Or maybe that was Moochelle. They never favorably photoshop Republican women.

on a more serious note, I picked up Winik's 1944, and it is a powerful work, it reads like a real life version of the strain, an unnameable horror, that the dem's patron saint, FDR was really unable and unwilling to prevent, Winik does paint some powerful vignettes, including
the tragic maneuvers of Slapton Sands,

Porchlight

Well, since I was criticizing Iowahawk a hard time awhile back, I must apologize to him, because I attended his last minute meetup last night and he's just as modest and funny and easy to talk to as ever.

I had him to myself for almost an hour before another mutual friend showed up (Tom Elia, whom some of you may know from Facebook) and then later another young guy who just moved here from Pittsburgh.

We drank several beers, smoked several cigarettes and generally had a lot of fun. Didn't really talk politics other than Illinois and Austin government corruption. Talked music, food, sports, architecture, business, cars, kids, other stuff. Didn't get to sit outside because of a crazy frat party (SAE), but that made for fun people watching. Nice time.

no it hasn't been that much acting it seems,

Sounds wonderful Porch. TC and I (and Amy for a while) talked religion. Well I pretty much listened. I was only sad that my next door neighbor, an ex nun, wasn't here to join in the conversation. It was fascinating.

That sounds great, Jane. I am excited for you that you are moving but I know the MA JOM meetup won't be the same without you.
