sbw--my sons learned to knit, as all students do, at Montessori school. My husband made himself a down vest when we were residents.

I have a functional treadle sewing machine at the lake house in Michigan-- the one I used as a teen ager.


A terrific "first!" anonamom.

Thanks anonamom! When I arrive here early in the morning it's hard to get to that last page until I have had enough coffee and my eyes are clear enough to type in the change in page numbering!


I suppose the old thread is all sewn up.

Oh, I like this from porch's most excellent reddit link above!

[Trumps1stMemberVerified[S] 502 points 1 month ago
The good guys already won. What you are witnessing is the death throes of the democrat party. They've got nothing and they know it. There isn't a single viable politician or candidate in their entire operation down to the county level...]

Yes, Anonamom,

But don't forget what Hillary said over the weekend:

Hillary Clinton: “I am ready to come out of the woods and to help shine a light on what is already happening around kitchen tables, at dinners like this, to help draw strength that will enable everybody to keep going,”

So we've still go to sweat Hillary's kitchen table, whatever that means.

Wow. Mrs lyle just brought the two pots of rosemary out of the greenhouse and up on the deck by the door. It's like a rosemary bomb went off out there.


Ah, I see my big pot o' chives came out as well. Excellent. And what's this? She also planted some parsley. Tres bien.

Lol, Frau. Too soon for outdoors in our clime. But I am making a Bearnaise with my bone-in grilled pork chops tonight.

Trump sr staff & Bannon met yesterday about health care w/Cruz, Lee, Meadows & others at Mar-a-Lago

It really is worthwhile to read Miss M's earlier link to rex Tillerson being interviewed, so here it is again: Transcript: Independent Journal Review's Sit-Down Interview with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson

What prompts me to post this is thinking about our 2 previous Sec States. In one we have Hillary strutting her pride and accomplishment as simply having landed in a hundred different countries. Then in Kerry we have a buffoon who arranges the Secret Service to go to a bike store in paris and then clear the roads in the countryside so he can ride his bike on the roads that the riders of the Tour De France ride on. Can anyone imagine, after reading Tillerson's comments, that he would possibly be so petty as to consider how many countries he flew into as an accomplishment, or to be so silly as to waste assets doing bicycle rides in Europe, or dragging in James Taylor to sing Carole King tunes to mourners of Islamic terrorism, while not even having the guts to say the words "Islamic Terrorism" to this mourners.

What a pack of buffoons we have had had in that office prior to Tillerson.


Remember Kerry broke his leg riding his bike and was on crutches during the failed Iran deal where he gave away the store.

Has the mentally ill Ashley Judd been asked to stay away from Kentucky basketball games?

Clarice Feldman

Thanks all.

Gus, congratulations.

Clarice Feldman

Did you notice--Poor Greece has been paying all its NATO dues and Germany hasn't..How clever of Trump to shine a spotlight on that as the EU crumbles.

Texas Liberty Gal

Good job anonamom on being 1st!


She was at one of the games.
I think what you do is wonderful and please keep up the good work.
This where our money should be going because it benefits us all!

Miss Marple the Deplorable


That IS clever. And to the point. Germany needs to pay up.

Also, how is it that we are defending Europe when Merkel invites the enemy in?

Finally, regarding Greece, ran across a Greek on Reddit who is thinking that Trump is The Marble King who will liberate Constantinople!



Shocka keeping Kentucky on their toes.


That Reddit link was great and encouraging! (Thanks, Porch)

Also, I enjoyed reading the one about Trump bringing the sign wavers over to Mar Lago to meet him - what a thrill for them. Did anyone else notice the comment that he really liked the sign that said "God Bless Trump"? Somehow the fact that he singled that one out and mentioned it makes me glad and indicates he wants our prayers.


Has the mentally ill Ashley Judd been asked to stay away from Kentucky basketball games?


I didn't see her in the crowd when the Kentucky women lost earlier today to Ohio State. I have on the Kentucky mens game but the volume is off so if she's been shown in the crowd I've missed her. For those who have been listening to the games, have the announcers pretty much wised up and quit shoving Liberalism down our throats with their play by play?


Mentally ill Julia Louis-Dreyfus was allowed into the Zags/NWestern game...


It is so wonderful to have a normal president again.
I pray for him each day as he is doing God'swork here in the USA.


Yes they have put a stop to it and the Half Time reports have been excellent.
I am partial to Clark Kellogg because he went to high school with my brothers.


I missed the dog talk on the last thread~
daddy when do you get your new puppy?

lyle - even if the owners were not thankful - I thank you for the dog! That is how many dogs end up in shelters and being put down.

I counted 14 deer in my back yard this afternoon. Emma had a field day chasing them away and got pretty close for a dog with only 3 legs. She came home smiling!


Remember Kerry broke his leg riding his bike and was on crutches during the failed Iran deal where he gave away the store.

Yep, Maryrose and then he and Samantha Powers stuck the knife in Israel's back on the way out the door.


Hi Momto2,

Momma tells me that "Nelson" arrives Wednesday. I leave on Thursday for a week so I'll get the first night with him but am looking forward to the psychological interaction twixt him and Scout and Fry. Momma and I have different ideas about how Scout is going to react to a newcomer--- think she'll be jealous/Momma thinks she'll be nurturing, but regardless it'll all work out well in the end.

He'll look pretty much like this, just add snow:

Jim Eagle

That is one cute puppy, daddy. I always love it when my Bandit tilts his head like that, especially when he hears a word like "food" or "treat" or "walk" or "beach":)

On To Next Fake Scandal

"A congressional intelligence panel so far has found "no evidence" that Donald Trump's campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 election, its chairman said Sunday, ahead of testimony by the head of the FBI on the US president's potential Russia ties.

Based on "everything I have up to this morning -- no evidence of collusion," by Trump's team and Moscow, Representative Devin Nunes, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, told Fox News."



BTW, ain’t it a pleasure to not have to see during every NCAA Commercial break some [redacted] about Obama and his Bracket Picks, followed by ad snippets of him on Late Night TV with Colbert or Fallon yucking it up about March Madness.

What a blessed relief to get that obnoxiousness out of our daily lives.


How exciting, daddy! I know it will be fun times as he finds his own spot in the pack. We eagerly anticipate pictures and stories!

I contributed to Ernst when she ran. As I recall that campaign, there was not a better Repubican running. IMO, the time to be getting the better person ready to run is now, not 3 months before the primary.

Plus IMO, look at https://www.conservativereview.com/scorecard?MyMembers=false&chamber=senate&sort=Score&order=Descending&page=1&pageSize=50

There are a whole lot of Republican Senators who need to be moved from the F column.

One of my old friends has noticed that the Washington Post has been scare posting on Climate Change for a looong time.

The Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from Consulate at Bergen Norway.Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard-of temperatures in the Arctic zone.Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes.Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm.Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds.Within a few years it is predicted that due to the ice melt the sea will rise and make most coast cities uninhabitable.

* * ** * * * * *I must apologize. I neglected to mention that this report was from November 2, 1922, as reported by the AP and published in The Washington Post 95 years ago.

This must have been caused by the Model T Ford's emissions or possibly from horse and cattle flatulence.

I have not reseaarched this but I trust my friend.

Pagar, a bacon, Ham, and sausage supporter

Starting from the Word "Climate Change to the word flatulence" in my 04:26 post is all quoted from my friend's email.

I don't have any "most" favorites. I only have "least" favorites. I do think tho that the lady who can't parallel park in the QX30 is really cute. I think she's Sleeping Beauty in that Geiko commercial. To the gym.


Momma on her morning dog walk just texted that she thinks spring is here!

Woo Hoo!


Wonderful daddy, did you decide on a name?

For anyone who cares to look, here's the transcript from Rupert's Sunday Infotainment Show:


The interviews are good with Ryan and Nunes but I don't know whose brilliant idea it was to have Zeke Emanuel and Neera Tanden on the panel. Emanuel is a ghoulish liar who needs to receive the euthanasia he advises to others and after Tanden was caught lying by Wikileaks it's amazing that witch, or something that rhymes with it, would show her face in public.

Well done, Rupert; Springer couldn't go lower.

Jimmy Breslin RIP. Dead at 88.

Never even knew he was still alive. He and Mark Royko were my favorites back in the day. I especially loved the Royko pieces on BBQ champions and contests.

But Breslin knew New Yawk like no one else.


Well that's inconvenient:

Just because lyle posted it first doesn't mean he's not copying me: bone-in porch chop with rosemary just hit the grill. No Béarnaise - it's just me. My '10 Ch. Grand Corbin Manuel is breathing nicely. Go ahead, lyle - ruin my day with your wine selection!! ;)


Its rayshielded from unreliable sources so caveat lector:


Jim Eagle


Way too heavy for us.

Gravalax, a sliced boutard, creme fraiche, capers, red onions and shots of iced vodka. Then a few glasses of Billecart-Salmon followed by a night cap of a tawny port or nice glass of Highland Park. Perfect for watching the march madness games.

Don't know you you and lyle can have that heavy a dinner and still sleep at night.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Two points;

1. I use a sewing machine to fit my shirts to my sleek wasp waist and;

2. While admittedly they didn't have much to work with, Kerry's plastic surgeons still should be arrested for practicing animal husbandry (h/t MarkO) without a license or assault with a deadly potato or something.


"Porch" chop, you say? 😎

Haven made my wine selection yet but I'm thinking Italian: '05 Brancaia Maremma IGT.


Not watching any NCAA. Based off of daddy's selection of finalists I will go with #3.

As far as my homework? I like the shape and size of her cans with her arms over her head.

You can throw our entire Alaskan Congressional Delegation into that term limits thing: Local paper talks about how they are all happy to have all these Governemnt cuts as long as it doesn't happen in Alaska, especially Young and Murkowski. 40 years ago something called the ESA (The Essential Air Service) was instituted as a temp program. Now our guys are all up in arms about it being defended:

Trump budget cuts deeply into Alaska's federal funding

The Transportation Department budget, which would see an overall 13 percent cut, would carve away $175 million by entirely eliminating the EAS program.

The program "was originally conceived of as a temporary program nearly 40 years ago to provide subsidized commercial air service to rural airports. EAS flights are not full and have high subsidy costs per passenger," the budget request said. "Several EAS-eligible communities are relatively close to major airports, and communities that have EAS could be served by other existing modes of transportation."

Young's spokesman Matt Shuckerow said the congressman has defended efforts to remove the service in the past, and would surely "fight like hell" to defend it and other programs again, like the Denali Commission.

The Transportation Department currently subsidizes flights to remote parts of Alaska through $20 million in contracts.

2 years back when we were still fat with oil money we wasted millions in bringing in villagers to Amchorage for sports Tourneys and the public was furious. But if it's you guys funding the exact same thing, we fight like crazy to keep the program alive. To me it makes sense, except in Emergency situations, that you choose to live where you choose to live, and if it happens to have lousy air service, so be it. You can move. I don't expect u guys to pay my affair. Etc.


This week in trump

1.) Accused our special ally, the UK of spying on him, causing a diplomatic kerfuffle

2.) Didn't shake German Prime minester's hand when asked by Prime Minister and photographers

3.) House states no evidence obama wiretapped him.

I guess this is all about making America stronger abroad by alienating everyone. On top of that, the sheer amount of lies means no one is going to believe America on anything.

Not even going to go over the policy disasters coming. Its a gigantic shit show. Gallup at 58% disapprove in 2nd month. RECORD.


I sure do love killfile.


However, it does seem like something is breaking through to the conservatives ... was shocked to see this on redstate -- "apologize to the democratic party" -- republicans w/no plan on obamacare.


Time to wake up.


Who did you vote for jor? Try to not be so illusive.

For example:

I, TK, voted for Trump.

I will give you a head start. Just copy and paste this and add your answer.

I, jor, voted for _______.

Sounds good, JiB! I try to eat early - before 6:00 my time - when I eat like that...

Good catch, lyle. I hope Mr. Porch doesn't see that! ;)


Tedious, tendentious twat. Who'd you vote for, pissant?

Via Don Surber:

Hillary fund-raiser busted for cheating workers

First, from the Hollywood Reporter last summer: "Disney's Bob Iger Among Hosts of Hillary Clinton Fundraiser at Haim Saban's House (Exclusive)."

Next, from the Orlando Sentinel on Friday:
The Walt Disney Co. has agreed to provide $3.8 million in back wages to thousands of hotel- and timeshare-resort workers after the U.S. Labor Department investigated violations of minimum wage, overtime and record keeping rules.

I'm shocked, shocked. Round up,the usual suspects.


We eat at ~7:45 and I retire ~10:30. No problem, JiB.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

I already woke up.

That's why I voted for Trump.


I love the loyalty pledges here HEH. I didn't vote for Trump -- its hilarious this comes up every-time you guys are forced to face reality. Hillary may be a dumb bitch (I voted for her) -- but I think we can all agree she has some level of impulse control, which is Trump's fundamental problem.

I didn't write the redstate post or comments. That's not even about Trump -- the redstate post is about the Republicans party.

They control all levers of government, and its a complete shit show.

Paul Ryan is a con-man just like Trump. Its all coming out now...

Captain Hate

Why is nobody in the MFM talking about the bathhouse rat scurrying off to Tahiti like his lowlife father abandoning his family, without having said a single thing to refute Trump's accusations. Of course his MFM catamites will make excuses for him like they have for a decade, because he's their special little pet.


Anyone interviewed this guy, he was one of the first to make this claim:


trumps wiretap claim achieved 3 objectives:

1) Sessions russian fake news immediately wiped from headlines
2). Focus placed on illegal leaks of classified surveillance and unmasking of names
3). Highlights that either media lied about earlier wiretaps/surveillance or it really happened

Trump had already won as soon as wiretap tweet was sent.

The no Russion election collusion news tomorrow will be no surprise except to delusional lefties.

And didn't Disney bring in foreign workers an then have their people train these people as their replacements?



Marla: 58% disapprove. Alienating UK, Germany just this week. De-funding meals on wheels. Setting back medical research. Thats just this week.

I'm sure defunding meals on wheels is a top priority for most americans. Similar to defunding medical research.

give me a break. its a joke. The hypocrisy and sheer amount of lying is unparalleled. You would follow trump if he shot a 5 year old in the middle of 5th avenue, with 100 witnesses -- as he claimed his supporters would do. (we got the milder version of this with "grab em by the pussy").

Miss Marple the Deplorable


Maybe you should realize that none of us like Ryan, either. (Except maybe maryrose, who likes everyone.)

I am. however, confidant in Trump's negotiating abilities.

Also, President Trump did shake Merkel's hand at the press conference. However, I wouldn't be upset if he hadn't, since poor little Greece is ponying up their fair share to NATO, while Germany is not.

As far asa the House Intel Committee, I think you should wait until after the hearings on Monday. I am VERY interested to see Admiral Rogers of NSA is testifying. Why would that be, do you think?


Captain Hate: Republicans are refuting Trumps accusations. What are you talking about? He heard it on Levins or fox, and just tweeted it without thinking. No impulse control.

This is like the millions of illegal voters in the election claim -- complete bullshit. Only a true idiot would believe it.


daddy: the people at Disney who did that should burn in hell for that shit. Instead they probably got a raise. That is bi-partisan establishment policy. Its not only hillary -- Paul Ryan is part of that group.

Jim Eagle

Ignore jor. He is a FakeAmerican.


Marla: Fair enough, lets see what happens monday


Normally I just SOB jorz insipid comments but the point about Hilligula having impulse control is even more delusional than I previously thought. Well, that and the idea that confession of a vote for Trump = a "loyalty pledge." Imbecile.


Good point JiB.

Fake Americans aren't allowed to vote.

That must be why jor deflects.

Beasts of England

Which impulse was Cankles controlling when she had Gaddafi killed?


I voted for Trump because from the get-go he's made all the right enemies. Juvenile jorz comments here merely reinforces my correct choice.


Holy smokes!! It answered and I missed it amid all the drivel.

Hillary may be a dumb bitch (I voted for her) -

Hahahahaha!!!! What a loser!!!


Impulse control...

Captain Hate

This is a waste of time but: jor, you realize that Trump has access to intelligence data that most of the GOP numbnuts don't. You already beclowned yourself by believing that dossier garbage; don't double down by being dumber than McCain.

Beasts of England

lol, Threadkiller!!



Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

So jor,
Back before the Dems realized spying on presidents might not be such a good idea to admit Trump's calls to the big cheeses of Mexico and Australia were leaked.
If the "intelligence community" wasn't spying on Trump how exactly did they produce those transcripts?
You don't consider that prima facie evidence he was being monitored?

Captain Hate

Again, why hasn't the Tahitian mincemeat said a syllable in his defense?


Do we have an extradition treaty with Tahiti?


If we had a press corpse, one would ask Adam schiff, tell us your rvidenvr and the source fir every bit of info


The former U.S. Attorney offered an unprecedented “sweetheart plea deal” to serial sex offender Jeffrey Epstein


Miss Marple the Deplorable

I really am interested in Admiral Rogers testomony, since he went to New York about 10 days after the election to speak to Trump, unbeknownst to Obama or Clapper.

It is quite possible that he knew about some monitoring but couldn't do anything about it until he was sure Hillary had lost and that there was a SCIF set up at Trump Tower.

When were those calls to Mexico adn Australia made? We haven't heard much about phone calls after those two.

By the way, where is Brennan? Is he hiding out in Qatar or something?


It is striking how roger'opposite number, hannigan. Steps down four days after the Carlos slims story, one almost two months later, they have dragooned an mi 5 veteran Lansing to fill the slot.

Dave (in MA)

Getting off AF1 with Trump and Bannon was Bob Kraft. I wonder what sort of moonbat outrage that will trigger?

Miss Marple the Deplorable

I am going to watch TV and wrap myself in a blanket. Even though it's warm outside, I am getting chills and think I might be getting something,

Will check in later.


Shockingly that was not the fake news report.
