Cause I can't explain that non call. Except Jerry paid off the refs. Woop woop! Ice bowl II here we come.

Miss Marple

Jack,

Against my better judgement (due to certain types who bother us) I am going to post the link to the listing. Those who go there can also link to my store and bookmark it.

Trolls should be aware I will prosecute for harassment. Heh.

I only wish my Redskins had a certified idiot like Terry Bradshaw (who called his own plays, BTW) and won 4 super bowls. But then he was only the QB and it was the other guys who actually won the games and Chuck Noll who let him call the plays.

What an idiot.

Sue

Your Redskins can have our certified idiot who pays off refs to make them look bad for most of the first half and then pulls a fast one midway through the 4th.

Beasts of England

Already handled, sbw.

Captain Hate

Y'all would be better off arguing the fix was in when they failed to flag Bryant for being on the field without his helmet.

Goodell sent one of his toadies to Mike and Mike to talk about this. He said that the zebras like to give somebody a chance to get off the field in a situation like that so they don't have to throw a flag. So remember that the next time an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty is given; that the zebras sometimes enforce the rule and sometimes don't. And maybe he will and maybe he won't. Good luck figuring out the difference.

Well run league imo.

Sue

Y'all don't get local sports (DFW). And you can thank the football gods for that. Jerry has his own show. And he's plugging Christie for president. Seriously, anyone of y'all can have our idiot.

Sue

He informed his audience that Christie is our mojo.

I'm giving him away....take him....please?

Captain Hate

Why would the Redskins need a certified idiot? They won in Dallas.

Bradshaw isn't playing any more and sounds like a damn fool when he pimps Stafford.

Sue

I don't blame you for not wanting him. We're stuck.

So Boehner is busy punishing those who voted against him even though it appears that a significant portion of Republican citizens wanted new leadership. What an ass. Of the Speaker, for the Speaker, by the Speaker. Screw you, Johnnie!

MM-thought of you today as red and I decided to clean the butlers pantry. I discovered things I had forgotten we had and halloween candy and the homemade birthday crown from red's 5th birthday.

Somehow getting tree down and putting stuff away made it time to jump into those cabinets.

Rich,

I don't think that disease will help her drinking problem. As I understand it, although it isn't fatal, it causes extreme pain in joints and muscles and can last as long as 6 months.

MarkO

I shall here cover Dersh with sorts of facts unknown to BO'R.

All seasoned litigators know that this filing means Cassell has the goods on Dersh.

I wonder if he laid a trap for the Old Professor. There would have been almost no way to compel this evidence otherwise.

I am, of course, loving this.

Without further ado:

Laura White

Oh, Miss Marple, those plates are wonderful! Would buy in a heartbeat if I had the money. God bless their new owner--and, yes, isn't it a mystery how things end up where they do?

Beasts of England

A new season of MasterChef Junior has just kicked off on Fox. If y'all care anything about food, cooking or kids, I highly recommend tuning in. It's one of the finest shows on television.

Miss Marple

MarkO,

All I now is that Dershowitz suddenly became anti-Obama, to the gullible glee of many conservatives.

I do wonder what in the hell is going on.

Eric in Boise

MM, would it be inappropriate for me to mention that Miss Lohan is a number three on my "Hurry Up and Overdose" list?

Yeah, I was afraid of that.

Miss Marple

Laura,

Besides that rifle pin I talked about earlier, I have found original Yellowstone photos from the "official Yellowstone photographer" dating from the 1920's, an old piece of Lalique from the same era (bought for 10 dollars), vintage souvenir items from the Indian reservations out west, civil war bullets and photos, 1890's dresses, etc.

I love what I do. I just wish I could do it faster, as the photography and listing are time-consuming.

Miss Marple

Eric,

She is one of several Disney child stars who have morphed into destructive adulthood. At some point one has to ask what the heck is going on in those studios down in Florida?

Captain Hate on the iPad

I think we were just praising Jones for something generous he did for the troops.

Jane



O'Reilly will cover Dersh tonight.

The anticipation of this delight has forced me to tune in, even tho I've taken a solemn vow not to. If you guys are on time delay, I'll let you know if it's worth it.

I hate snow. I used to love snow, but now I hate it.

Bad parenting is my default setting, Miss Marple.

Jim Eagle

MM,

Are you serious of selling at a premium price? If so, tell me your ebay sale item number of your ebay site.

The only full set I find is from a selller in Oregon.

pagar

MM, any idea why I get your site in Spanish?

I liked the price on that Carolina Wren but the freight was a no.

I don't go on ebay much but I'm on Amazon almost very day buying free books and it always comes in English.

I'm like Laura White, love those plates but just can't afford them.

MarkO

Jane, you have mail.

You never know when an NBA ref is going to call a charge or a block, or whether he's going to call fouls differently in the final three minutes than in the first three. No one thinks a ref is as likely to call a foul on LeBron as he is on Verajao.

Until the third inning you never know where the hell the strike zone is for tonight's home plate umpire. Replay technology was available for fifty years before MLB deigned to use it. Every team plays half its games in a park whose dimensions are different from all other parks. One league has a designated hitter, the other doesn't. Home-field advantage in the World Series is determined by an exhibition game in which most players have no stake at all in where the WS is played.

Well-run leagues? Not compared to the NFL, which is constantly evolving. The NBA hasn't had a significant rule change since the 3-point field goal was introduced.

I think the solution, in all three sports, is to relax and enjoy the games. But by all means, if watching them puts you in a foul mood, do something else.

Miss Marple

Jack,

Item number is 261726085946.

Miss Marple

pagar,

I have no idea on why that is showing up in Spanish. Probably another eBay site snafu.

What freight are you seeing on that Carolina wren? I don't have any way to check on what eBay has calculated unless someone asks me.

Jim Eagle

I'm still waiting for the 1st playoff victory from the Redskins under Snyder but how many did that certified idiot Bradshaw have? IOW's why do you always demean success, CH? As if it was unconscious or undeserviing. I just don't get your constant negativity about great players of a great game.

Jim Eagle

MM,

Your item number is not coming up. Under what category do you have it listed and key words?

matt

Watching a spectacular sunset in Laguna Beach in our temporary digs. Catalina and San Clemente islands are outlined in deep orange and the sky is turning purple. Sometimes you just get lucky.

I gave up on taking sports seriously when the moguls decided is was simply a product to be sold at the highest price. $300 seats, seat licenses, cable fees, all of it to feed a greedy few hogs at the trough. I'd rather watch the amateurs with nothing to gain except a little glory perhaps.

Captain Hate on the iPad

DoT, you and I view sports somewhat differently. I think tinkering with rules frequently is a bad thing. Once the NBA resolved the Clippers ownership situation, which I thought was handled poorly, it's been a well run league imo.

Janet

That picture of Reid...

Looks like some insane Grandpa. In a nation of millions, THAT is the best we can do?
It is so sad. Look at 'em....

Why in the world would ANYONE want that crew micromanaging their life? Telling you what to eat? or what to think? Telling you to stop driving your car? Telling you to give them more of your money?
It is insane that we listen to those losers. Republican career politicians too.
It is all so sickening I can barely stand it.

Captain Hate on the iPad

JiB, find where I've demeaned Bradshaw's playing.

Beasts of England

My ex just dropped of a New Year's gift for me! A half-pound ballotin Godiva chocolat. How kind! Either that or she wants me to be fat and have zits! ;)

Sue

See what your money buys Beasts? Nice chicalates.

Jim Eagle

CH,

Let me get this right. An NFL QB who wins 4 Super bowls and is the MVP twice is a "certifiable idiot" because he has a postivie opinion about a young QB for a team who makes the playoffs for like in years and years?

Okay, my bad. Your're right:)

Miss Marple

Jack, here is the link to the listing:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/261726085946?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1558.l2649

The title is "Complete Set of 12 Old London Views Wedgwood British War Relief 1941."

When searching, leave out the quotation marks.

Sue

WTH is a chicalates? Sometimes autocorrect is just plain weird.

Jane

Got it Mark, and forwarded it to Clarice in case she shows up here.

pagar

MM, If I sent it to my friends in Iowa it would be $7.05.

If it came to Panama it was 22.50

I think the computer whiz just set the site up to pick up Spanish as soon as they see the location is Panama even thro every thing on my computer says it is always to use English.

Miss Marple

Hmmm. Just did a search on the title and it doesn't show up.

I believe I will call customer service.

Since I am offering free shipping it is supposed to be at the top of the listings.

Instead, I don't see it anywhere.

Jim Eagle

MM,

Just so yoiu know the Oregon listing is for $250 buy now.

Captain Hate on the iPad

To hell with this; I'm tired of defending an offhand remark that is being beat on more than birther crap.

Beasts of England

lol, Sue!! I shoulda told her that!! ;)

Miss Marple

Jack, Does it offer free shipping?

I am also listed with a make offer option.

Jim Eagle

Well, you shoudl be more circumspect with remarks you can't defend then. Its a condition I have noticed. I love you but jeez, can we cut back on the negativity for the good guys and stick to the real threats in our soiciety? Please?

Threadkiller

JiB, does this mean I should have enjoyed listening to Joe Theismann when he blathered over an otherwise decent Sunday night game?

jimmyk

If we had lost y'all would be aware of video showing Pettigrew had Hitchens face mask thereby preventing Hitchens from turning his head and making a play on the ball.

C'mon, Sue, that's a bit much. The head of officiating didn't agree, saying that it should have been a penalty on the defense, not so much because of the face guarding but because of an earlier hold. He said the face mask contact was minimal.

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2015/01/05/dean-blandino-acknowledges-cowboys-got-away-with-one/

They've also acknowledged a blatant hold on Suh that wasn't called on a crucial 4th down play.

Jane

O'Reilly:

"The suit is suspect because it happened 13 years ago."

Guilfoil and Weill: Epstein is interesting and we don't really know how he makes money. He plead in 2008 to having sex with a 14 year old girl. He plead to a state criminal charge and made a secret deal with the feds.

The feds kicked it over to protect Prince Albert and Dershowitz. The story was sold to the national enquirer by the main accuser.

Lis Wiehl praises the lawyers ("one is a former federal judge") but the timing makes it suspect. They go on with Dershowitz's defenses (he was only on the private island with his wife.) No mention of Clinton.

The end. And I'm not sure worth suffering thru O'Reilly.

Jane

O'Reilly says the Prince Albert deal is HUGE.

We shall see.

Miss Marple

I just saw that it may take 24 hours for an item to show up in a search.

Jack, if you follow the link does it show up?

Danube on iPad

"DoT, you and I view sports somewhat differently. I think tinkering with rules frequently is a bad thing."

I think it depends on the sport. The change in size and spped of all athletes has made football the way it was played and officiated sixty years ago lethal, and without changes it would also have become deathly dull, as the physical changes in people were more beneficial to defenders.

I'm witj JiB: I just can't fathom the constant negativity and ad hominem attacks. Just enjoy the games, if you can.

Jim Eagle

TK,

Read the conversation and decide whetther your post is even relevant. But if you think it is I don't really give a fat F**k what you think. The way I roll tonight.

By the way, last might I dreamed about Lorreta Fuddy getting garotted underwater a north korean frogman.

Miss Marple

Isn't it Prince Andrew? Albert is the guy from Monaco.

Threadkiller

"Chicalates" is what you get when more than one female anchor baby drops in from a Mamcita's northern aimed crotch shooter.

Sue

And we're still going to Green Bay Jimmy. Maybe the Lions coach should have gone for it on 4th and 1 instead of punting. We won in spite of their bad calls. If you had been on my FB feed during the game you would have sworn the Lions had bought the refs.

GUS

Inherantly poisonous?? I thought the CO2 coming out of LIBTARD CAKE HOLES was deemed to be POISON.

Jane

Andrew. And the link showed up for me immediately Miss Marple.

MarkO

The only person who cannot possibly be hurt by the Dershowitz mess is, in fact, Prince Andrew.

Jane, not making fun. I could easily have done the same thing. Prince Albert was the consort of Queen Victoria or the son of Grace Kelly.

Beasts of England

Do y'all have Prince Albert in a can?

Miss Marple

Jack,

Here is an interesting thing. Some weeks ago I ran across people accusing eBay of blocking certain geographic areas of the US and countries on a rotating basis, in order to "even out sales" or "make things fair" or something. I had noticed that I had sold a whole bunch of items from Australia and then suddenly nothing. I thought I was being paranoid.

However, if my item number doesn't show up for you (assuming you are in Florida) but Laura White can see the listing, it seems to me that this is what is going on.

BB Key

Janet , that photo needs to go viral!

Threadkiller

Jesus, JiB.

Beasts of England

Y'all would be more relaxed if you were eating 'chicalates' and watching MasterChef Junior. Just sayin'...

jimmyk

As a Lions fan, I'd say Stafford is mediocre. He has been brilliant in some games--the winning drive in the Miami game was a work of art--but awful in others. Considering he's got Megatron and Golden Tate to work with, he should be better.

jimmyk

Sue, I agree the Lions contributed mightily to their own demise.

Sue

Ain't nothing but a loss gonna get me down Jimmy. I'm ready for Sunday today.

Jim Eagle

Okay, I am on meds for my sinuses and having a hard time dealing with carp. My apologies. Now have some chamomile tea and feeling a little better.

MM, no. i got your listing and the others. Thinking, Thinking. Thinking.

CH. My apologies. Anxiety attack under the meds, I guess.

Sue

If we lose Sunday, I just hope it is a hard fought well played game. The Lions game was an ugly win, even if you take away the bad calls throughout the game.

Beester, eight in a box bay-bay

Should have stuck to wedding planning for daughter number one but...

Prince Albert has been dead a while and Prince Andrew's reputation will be shortly.

Party Boy Blandino has apologized to the Lions for the incompetent officiating that reversed the momentum of the game. Stafford is average to good and could benefit from a solid offensive lineman.

Hope the Packers cover the spread and Romo cries on Christie's shoulder...after he face plants on the icy turf of Lambeau Field.

Iggy

If Dershowitz's comments all revolved around and concerned a previous and current lawsuit are they covered by the litigation privilege?

Lazybusy

DoT, thank you for introducing the man to me. Sorry for your and the country's loss.

Ben, obtain a written affrimative consent then go f---k yourself.

GUS

Jack you are a gentleman. I was watching, and it was painful to see you and my brother Capn' at odds. Good for both of you!!!

Sue

My cousin was a teacher at Highland Park when Stafford played there. She knows him as we'll as any teacher knows a student. Unless there's hinkiness going on. Which there wasn't.

Iggy

For the record I have long thought Bradshaw a certifiable knothead, myself.

Perhaps his onfield acumen would be covered under the idtiot-savant category?

Miss Marple

Jack,

If you are interested, make an offer. I price slightly high because I offer free shipping and also because every once in a while someone will buy at the higher price.
(hey, you have to try to make the maximum amount.)

Shipping on that set will probably be around $45.00 to Florida.

Jim Eagle

GUS,

Thank you. Between Frederick practicing his scales on his Sax, watching Curse of Oak Island and getting sucked into a stupid conversation on Bradshaw, I am peachy tonight:)

Gus, why is Walker waiting? And you know what I mean. Is this a stragtegy or is he still thinking?

henry

Beester, the "icy turf" is known as "frozen tundra" FWIW. Should be quite a game.

Sue

For the record, I don't hate Green Bay like I do other foes. And like Doublecheck. He's a cutie.

Sue

Henry,

Are they selling Ice Bowl II t shirts in Wisconsin?

Miss Marple

http://mulvaney.house.gov/press-releases/mulvaney-releases-statement-on-speaker-vote/#.VKyOMMLeqWs.twitter

Interesting details on the vote, on the people who SAID they would vote against Boehner but didn't, etc.

Iggy

With the old Cowboys you could hate them even while respecting them.

But with a shot of the ghastly goggle eyed Gollum looking down from his skybox every third play and now hugging his mancrush, Governor Stay Puft, it's more like you can hate them even while hating them.

Sorry Sue.

Danube on iPad

There's no such privilege, Iggy.

henry

Sue, don't know. It's too cold to think about t-shirts right now, and I haven't watched any local news to find out.

Beasts of England

Winning often trumps knotheadedness, Ig! ;)

Jane on Ipad

Mark,

I was telling Amy the story this morning and said "Prince Albert" then too. I realized I was wrong later, but I think it's fixed in my head. Was Andrew married to the red headed weight watcher? He seems older than I think he should be.

Old Lurker

Everyone should read Henry's 6:31 link to Bill Gross.

jimmyk

He seems older than I think he should be.

Seeing pictures of a middle-aged jowly Prince Andrew is nothing compared to the shock that Ellie Mae Clampett was 81. Tempis fugit.

Miss Marple

Jane, Yes he was married to the red-head, Fergie.

I agree he has become stout and looks older than his years.

Sue

Jane,

I had the same problem seeing an old man singing Bob Seger songs and then closing my eyes and realizing it was really him. Yowzer.

Sue

Iggy,

I am not responsible for the idiot in the sky box.

Captain Hate on the iPad

Accepted, JiB. I wish to stress one final time that I was criticizing Bradshaw's role as an analyst. When I heard him singing the praises of Stafford on Fox I just said to myself "this is flat out wrong or misguided" and haven't been proven wrong yet. Stafford seems like a nice guy so I wish I was wrong.

Regarding TB as a player, I hated the Steelers but ended up admiring Bradshaw's tenacity (I'm not sure that's the right word) as he threw his career away by wrecking his shoulder in a game against the Jets when Noll was hinting he should play through the pain. I'm pretty sure TB didn't have anyone associated with the Steelers present him into the HOF because of that.

jimmyk

At this point, the fight between Dersh and the other lawyers(Edwards, Casell), as in the filing MarkO linked at 8:05, seems like, as someone here so eloquently put it a while back, just so much d**k-waving.
