San, happy new year all.

Hope this fits!

It is obvious that Fry and Scout enjoy "gifts" delivered by reindeer as much as the rest of us:)

Dinner at 9p PST. Happy New Year everybody!

Go Tide.

Dogs are wonderful creatures, but they do have odd tastes.

Jenny's older dog, the chihuahua Boston terrier mix, came in with mud absolutely caked to her feet. Big globs, some of which she dropped on the floor. She had been digging in the thawed yard like her life depended on it.

I had to wash her feet and Jenny had to clean up about 10 big globs she dropped on the floor.

Why she suddenly decided to dig, I have no idea.

Free James D!

Happy New Year!

(May as well say it now in case I poop out and fall asleep before midnight)

Re MM @910...the photo of DJT and MT.... first thing I thought when I saw it "I won."

For some (possibly lurid, I don't know) reason when I associate that phrase with DJT it doesn't crank me off the way it did when I heard it come out of the Walking Talking Suppository's yap.

And all of those pictures of WTS and the First Hump at their 2,000 coronation balls (am I lying if I exaggerate like this--- that "fight" has had a chilling effect on my gluttonous rhetorical indulgences) all those pics made me nauseous.

Just one giant propaganda hose-job after another against the American people, only 2/3rds or more didn't realize they'd be grabbing their ankles daily for 8 years. No wonder they're upset now. They are upright and all the blood is rushing down out of their skull cavities.

No fun. And really really scary. LOL


Tom Maguire!! You said "make good choices".

I believe most of those who come here DID make the proper choice.

Who did you choose?

Miss Marple the Deplorable


Mr. McGuire is following the Cary Grant mode.

He ain't talking and we therefore are free to assume he's on our side.


Sure will be a pleasant change to have Melania as First Lady.

Miss Marple the Deplorable


Yes! A benefit which will be more appreciated as the year progresses.

Also, they are ending Michelle's prison food lunch program.


Sure wlli be a pleasant change to have a lady who is first lady, and a Man who is President.


Happy New Year to one and all.

I don't believe the football game I just watched. Never thought I'd see an Urban Meyer coached team humbled like that. Kudos to Dabo Swinney and his Clemson Tigers.

If Bama wins the upcoming national championship game, and I think they're going to mash Clemson, I'll have no choice but to admit I've been wrong; Urban Meyer isn't the best coach in the nation. That, undeniably, would be Nick Saban.

What an incredible run for Bama. And, in its own way, what an incredible run for Clemson, too. Two worthy teams, two worthy programs. Last year was a classic. Good luck to the both of them in Tampa.

Well, time to crawl into bed and get my drink on. I'll be toasting more than a few folks, including Tom Maguire and the JustOneMinute hive. See y'all in 2017.


RG, thanks for your insights and company. Happy New Year to you . . . and to all the old folk here taking your suggestion.

Miss Marple the Deplorable


Happy New Year, and thanks for all of your posts! Here's to a great 2017!

Oh wow.

Beasts of England

At the risk of being an old fart, I'm calling it a night myself. Happy New Year to the entire JOM Family - love y'all a whole bunch. 🎉

buccaneer morgan

Did you retrieve your drone in the end?


Happy NewYear, RG abd BOE


Happy New Year to all! I'm taking my glass of wine and bowl of ice cream and will try to stay awake 35 more minutes. Maybe the rain will lessen the fireworks and the dogs won't be traumatized tonight!

buccaneer morgan

Her, as they say.


This YouTube is fantastic.

Not for the music, Kate Bush is not my thing, but the videography is outstanding. Hang a really good camera on a capable drone....


Happy New Year!

Miss Marple the Deplorable

I've stayed up this long I guess I can hang around for 14 more minutes.

We celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary as we always do by attending a Dallas Stars game. Tonight they lost, 1st time in 6 years they've lost a New Years Eve game. But that's ok because Obama is almost gone (from the presidency at least) and Trump is almost President and he is going to make America great again!!

Texas Liberty Gal

Had a terrible plane accident today over McKinney which is right next to Fairviev where we live. Two planes crashed into each other. 3 dead.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Impromptu press conference as Trump and Melania arrive at Mar-a-lago:

I am interested in the part where he says "I know things other people don't know."

Time Travel! HAHAHA!


Auld Lang Syne, friends. Good Night.

buccaneer morgan

Congrats on your anniversary tlg

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Happy New Year, including from the car choppers next door who are setting off fireworks.

Fortunately, my dogs aren't bothered.

Here's to a great 20127!


Miss Marple the Deplorable


(You can tell it's time for me to go to bed.)

Texas Liberty Gal

Thx buccaneer morgan. We met the 1st of October and were married the end of December of 1982. So many "friends" said it wouldn't last because we didn't have enough time to really get to know each other but they were wrong!! We knew!


Congratulations, TLG!

I wonder how many Palm Beach worthies will now be sucking up to the President-elect they once disdained. An amusing thought.

Safe and happy New Year celebrations to all. Much to be thankful for, and much work to do in 2017 fixing the country.


Happy Anniversary, TLG, that's a great story. And Happy New Year to all.

Texas Liberty Gal

Thx jimmyk & Porch!!!

Happy New Years to all JOMers. You've made my life richer.

And thanks be to God for giving us Trump!!!



5 minutes to New Year in Wisconsin.
Happy New Year to all my JOM friends.
And God Bless us all.


H A P P Y N E W Y E A R !

Now to throw a little rain on this parade. At 9pm Pacific we were looking for the Times Sqare Ball Drop on Fox. Didn't see it.

Went online to see if there was a video of the ball dropping and learned Times Square has a lock on the ball dropping.

It seems this corp has to be paid a fee in order to broadcast the ball drop.

Maybe I've got this wrong and hope some brilliant person can prove me wrong.



If we could just get TBT5 to track down the filthy lucre Soros is handing out the big bucks R candidates 2017 could get off to a roaring start.

Ha! Dave (in Ma),

I missed her performance, but for more New Years Eve fun, check out the comments on Mariah Carey's New Years Eve performance:

---Show up sober, remember your lines, appear plausible. Is it that difficult?

---The Russians hacked Mariah's voice!

---Someone needs to tell her she's not in the ice capades

---how do you mess up lip syncing

---Hope this isn't an indication of what 2017 is going to be like.

---She should've stayed home and located her pants.



Happy New Year Dave. I have a feeling that 2017 will see the TITANIC start to turn around.
I'm half Brit, and I'm very pleased with the IDEA/IDEAL/NOTION and implementation of BREXIT. I have cousins who are on either side of the issue. LIBTARDS are against Brexit, traditional patriots are FOR BREXIT.
As for US/U.S., The FACT that RODHAM the KEY. I am quite hopeful and optimistic that President Trump will lead us in the opposite direction, from the WEAK TEATED CRAP, we've experienced since REAGAN. People at the age of 40, were 16 when the RAPIST in CHIEF was ELECTED and ERECTED. Their entire frame of reference has been that SEX with INTERNS and spew blue dresses, was not WRONG. The people NOW 40 YEARS OLD, were 16 when Rodham told them that BILLY THE RAPIST was a VICTIM of a GOP VAST RIGHT WING CONSPIRACY. They've been INDOCTRINATED in public schools and the MFM. They have had ZERO CHANCE of being EDUCATED in most UNIVERSITIES in any sort of UNBIASED way.
MR TRUMP found a way to cut through the CRAP.

It's a start. The SCOTUS has been saved!!!
30 years from now, it will be FAR FAR FAR more Conservative and reasonable, THAN it would have been should have the EVIL DISHONEST, DISHONORABLE PIG....RODHAM been ELECTED.



Daddy, Mariah Carey has been a TRAIN WRECK for many years. She is not of the EPIC...Whitney Houston variety....YET.
She is fairly talented, IMHO, but you have a very short shelf life, UNLESS, you are REALLY REALLY HOT and have a HIT or 2.

Happy New Year Daddy. You are quite awesome.

Dave (in MA)

Same to you, GUS. --and everyone else.
daddy, The ladies insisted on putting the boob tube on ABC leading up to midnight, so we did not miss Mariah Carey.


(classical reference.)

Man Tran

Just remembered this is the 52nd anniversary of our first date. It was at a buddy's house and he had a first date that night, too. They're still married. The best part is that I brought a Bob Dylan album to play and nearly got thrown out for the effort. Heh. The older brothers were strictly C&W.


Happy New Year JOM! Thank you, TM! I do love this place!!

TLG, we share an anniversary! Happy Anniversary to you and Mr. TLG, the lucky devil!

My health updates will come later. Not a topic for now.

I appreciate all the concern.


TK!! God bless you my DEAR friend. You and I have worked hard of years, to stay FRIENDS.
I love you brother, and I am praying for you.
If you were here, I'd even KISS you on the cheek!!!


As I am winding down, I have been watching (briefly) a HISTORY CHANNEL show called "This is History 2016".
I AM A CRITICAL THINKER. If someone tells me that RODHAM is the SMARTEST WOMAN ALIVE, or that SHE is the MOST QUALIFIED CANDIDATE blah blah blah blah. I IMMMMMEDIATELY RECOGNIZE, via my BULLSHIT DETECTOR, that the PEEPS telling me this, ARE FUKWADS/LIBTARDS and DUMBER than empty tampon boxes.
Whether some MOM of a HOMOSEXUAL who happened to be at the GAY NIGHTCLUB with her SON, is/was/might be some sort of HERO.
I guess what I am saying, is that the MFM creates a narrative THAT IS IRRELEVANT to the CAUSE AND EFFECT of what happened.
Those writing the narrative, are BIASED.

I don't play along with their chosen NARRATIVE.


Yay, TK, Great to see you alive and kicking. Cheers and good wishes everyone.

Back here in 2016 land we're still finding fun in the Mariah comments:

---Thank God she wouldn't agree to sing at Trumps inauguration!!!


Thanks GUS and daddy!


Have they quit making Fake News there in 2017 land?

Fake News is like so 2016.


Daddy, it's hilarious. It's PROJECTION.
Furthermore, all of this is LIBTARD, OBAMA, Propaganda.
I'm going to COMPLETELY ENJOY....January 20, when Obama gets HUMILIATED,,,,, yet further....Trump is going to verbally EXPOSE all of OBAMA'S lies, EXECUTIVE ORDERS, PARDONS, and specifically OBAMA'S EPA nonsense.


I want President Trump to LIST all of the REGULATIONS and EPA nonsense.
As President Trump REVERSES the NONSENSICAL BULLSHIT, I want President Trumps PEEPS, to EXPLAIN.....WHY....Obama's SHITSTAINS are being REVERSED. I want OBAMA to be HUMILIATED.
President Trump was DULY ELECTED and OPIE WONDER BOY can eat shit and die.




Gosh, after the RESET BUTTON... hehhehe cackle. After our OPM office being HACKED.
After PRINCE JUG EARS, playing so much golf!
After Edward Snowden SHITTING ON U.S./US and Mister Obama, and after Snowden giving CHINA and AND RUSSIA, millllions of data bits from the NSA.

Obama is, was and has been. A PATHETIC, wannabee MARXIST pussy and clown.


Daddy, we have VAL JARRETT, POWERS, SUSAN RICE, and a dozen LIBTARD PUSSY BOYS, with REALLY GROOVY, young dude/ half grown beards.

This has been an EMBARRASSMENT.


Jack is Back!


Your 4:04 reminded me what a great year 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020 will be. Thanks for flooding my spirit with joy!


Happy New Year one and all.

Victims, Inc  (Just a small percentage of the settlement)

SMIRSH recommends you send information through old fashioned mail and burn any copies. It's probably how informants (that's all the employees are) are told to provide. Trump is probably getting a lot of input because it's (was) always safer to deal with the executive and get processed there first. 👉 'If I'd only known that...'

Happy New Year to all!

Start the year off right with Clarice's Pieces.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Good morning! I am up to put the corned beef in the crock pot so we can have the traditional New Year's meal of corned beef and cabbage.

One thing I heard Trump say yesterday was that NO computer is safe and that if you have to communicate something important, you should write it down and send it by courier!

I have known that about his personal business for a while. He rarely uses email.

I foresee new security directives coming down. I also see a lot of money saved when government employees no longer are able to surf the internet for on-line shopping or porn.


Knife-wielding Afghan migrant 'stabs Christian woman, 50, because she was reading the Bible at the Austrian refugee centre where he lives'

attacker was a 22-year-old man from Afghanistan who had taken offence to the fact that the woman had been invited by Christian residents of the property to discuss the Bible.

A message from the President-elect:

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Death toll up to 39.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

She seems to have been sick for some time. What is a "heavy cold?"

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Free James D!

Happy 2017!

And a big thanks to Clarice, for her usual fantastic Pieces!

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Delta pilot interaction around Trump plane. Gets clearance to take a picture.

V, Inc  (Just a small percentage)

Clarice, we still have no idea who the 'consultant' was who arranged the abstention even though the netanyahu said he does - he's under prosecution by their FBI now. Maybe someone said it was DoO Mrs. Mysterio to confirm her 'you leaked me?' Either way the tentacles have been trackable. Maybe it's the old pantsuits network? The basis for the land and waters claims appears to be the 'indigenous' policy created at the UN and the redefinition of people's by US immigration, the UN, governments, etc. 'Tradional territories' is an easily trackable phrase component. The 'consultant' who had this done at the UN is also still unknown, but it would only be prudent to know her history. In any case, all this is being done to subvert for another agenda. Common to these actors. Pantsuits network loose ends?

Trump or maybe his 'Exective Daily' readers instead will be getting all these answers and analysis soon. Then they can't act freely and will just be considered part of club intelligence, maybe get your kid a plum job at SMIRSH or something...

Miss Marple the Deplorable


Great Pieces Clarice!

Zero is desperate to be seen as anything but the fuck up he is.

He is now flailing in the deep end. Hope someone throws him a lead anchor.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Circle Centre is the large, multi-story mall in downtown Indianaolis. It was made by combining the structures of several older buildings and revamping the interior.

It started out as luxury shops for tourists. However, that wan't enough business, so gradually they transitioned to stores like the Loft.

The BIG problem is high school kids hanging around and they haven't been able to get it to stop. I haven't shopped there in years, partially due to the kids hanging around and also because I don't want to go downtown and park in a parking garage.

I seethat they have rented space to the Indianapolis Star (who closed their old building downtown) and a large sports bar. Not exactly a shoppers' paradise.

Miss Marple the Deplorable


I saw a comment on conservative Treehouse this morning that I agree with. He's obviously unstable, so they should intern him in Hawaii and swear Joe in for the duration.


@RG - Re your 10:55 you stopped just short of calling them student athletes. Are Saban & Sweeney the best coaches or just the best recruiters. Doesn't the Admissions Dept. deserve some credit (or blame).

In any case nice to see the Bugeyes exposed.


Happy New Year! We went out to dinner last night with friends. The restaurant had three seatings,no we didn't go to the early bird seating! We went to the late seating,which for us is living on the edge. Sometime during dinner,EMTs entered the building and efficiently and professionally took someone out on a stretcher. :(

Now I'm going to read clarice and enjoy my coffee.


Last evening in Tianjin China. We had New Years yesterday. :)
Here's hoping for two things in '17. Lots more winning and a way for everyday citizens to help. I was reflecting today on the people who had the guts to keep on attending Trump rallies when the Dems tried to make it appear to be too dangerous. Bless you all!

Miss Marple the Deplorable


I think there will be such an effort. I noticed on the Trump web site that they talked about all 50 states being involved in the defense build-up. They have had a place on the transition site for citizen suggestions.

I think people will pitch in if they see that their efforts will help and be acknowledged. What people need is direction, which we haven't had for a very long time.

Give them lists of local groups they can work with. Give them ideas for their personal lives (not controlling, just suggestions or how-to type things). There are miles of roadsides that need clean-up this spring. neighborhoods could use repairs. Some of that could be done by Scouts, 4-H, Boys and Girls Clubs, etc.

Anyway, I am anxious to see what ideas come out of the new administration.

Or, they could be terrorists. Who knows?)

Happy New Year. I did not know corned beef and cabbage was a New Years tradition. Here it is greens and also black eyed peas. The first for prosperity and the second for luck.

I also learned something from the previous thread. All these years I thought "to lie" meant a requisite awareness that something was untrue. Otherwise, an inaccurate statement can be a misstatement or misrepresentation or a careless statement.

My kids will be so sad that I am having to turn in my status as the Human Dictionary. At least this happened when they were all mostly grown.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Hi, rse,

Around here we have the cabbage for prosperity.

I occasionally also serve black-eyed peas (my dad spent his childhood in Texas), but there were none left at the store so we will do without them this year.

I bet you could draw a map of corned beef and cabbage vs. black eyed peas and it would roughly follow the Mason Dixon line.


Corned beef . . . corned beef . . . me thinks I'd have to look that up. I've heard of it, not sure I've ever seen it or eaten it. Oh well, off to the internets for more edumacation.


Well, damn. It doesn't involve corn at all !!!


I used to make hopping john, but several years ago I started making a Good Luck Soup recipe from the Jackson, MS Junior League cookbook and it is a big hit.

In fact I better go doublecheck the recipe to make sure I have all the ingredients. Last night the cioppino was a hit and since the kids were all elsewhere I realized I could leave off serving it over linguine.

Red, of all things, LOVES the greens which I used to have others bring over all those years we were at the beach. Since Red has a thyroid issue and I listen to her endocrinologist's statements on diet mattering, if she wants greens, that's another dish I will make.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Morning, RG!

I think regional food is interesting.

It's hard for younger folks (like my grandchildren) to realize, but there were NO pizzerias or Mexican restaurants in Indianapolis when I was growing up. Zilch, zero,nada. The only Mexican food I ever had were the canned tamales my dad would buy because he grew up in Texas eating the food cooked by the ranch hands.

Except for a couple of really high-priced restaurants (which my family couldn't afford) I don't think there was any French-influenced cooking, either.

When I was a girl it was a big deal to go to The Copper Kettle, where they served a fried chicken dinner family style. My grandmother preferred Morgan's Restaurant because they made a superior meat loaf.

When my dad got older he commented on how many restaurants had suddenly appeared n the last 20 years. He thought people apparently didn't cook dinner at home anymore (judging from the crowds I think this might have been true).

Miss Marple the Deplorable

The Hill has so far managed to get three separate stories out of that impromptu news conference Trump had last night.

Miss Marple the Deplorable


Here's the story on Mariah Carey (of course, the Daily Mail is ON IT):

Captain Hate

Are Saban & Sweeney the best coaches or just the best recruiters. Doesn't the Admissions Dept. deserve some credit (or blame).

Recruiting's only half the battle; getting a bunch of athletes who've had their egos reach dysfunctional levels to perform as a unit is the real challenge. Saban is very good at that.

I run hot and cold on college athletics and the student athlete quandary. Right now, with them having knuckled under so eagerly to every damn bit of PC nonsense that's come down the pike, I'm viewing successful athletic programs as one of their more useful undertakings.

Tom Bowler

Happy New Year JOMers! 2016 was a fabulous year. This time last year I was about to begin the third of three rounds of chemo. Eleven months and two surgeries later I'm cleared to resume all physical activities, and the snow is here just in time for me to snap on the skis and head out on the trails.

The icing on the cake, of course, is Trump's victory. I recall commenting here early on in the primary season how sure I was that Trump was in it to get Hillary elected. How nice to be so wrong.

He campaigned as no other Republican ever had courage enough to do, and by winning the way he did, he is poised to drive the proverbial wooden stake into the heart of that criminal enterprise known as the Democratic Party. I wish him, his family, and his team all the best for 2017.

Have a great 2017, JOMers!


So true, MM. Further research has disabused me of my ignorance a bit more. I must have had corned beef on multiple occasions. In some hash dish someone made, in some reuben sandwich I've eaten.

Who knew? It was just some meat to me.

As for the change in America during our lifetimes -- absolutely incredible. We all joke in our family about what an adventure it was to take a drive into Jacksonville from Orange Park to eat at . . . Burger King!



Clarice -- Precise, newsworthy, timely, and sad.

Facebooked it. Thnx!

Cecil Turner

How nice to be so wrong.

Same here. For all the problems facing the country, I shudder to think of what could be happening with that gang of kleptocrats taking over.


Wow, Tom. You're seeing the world with different eyes. May God continue to bless you.

buccaneer morgan

Heh clarice, i can see where you get your sense of humor.
