The death toll is now over 60 and may go as high as 100.

Probably got people paid on time.

" The biggest bonus went to an HR Manager in charge of payroll for $141,525."

Miss Marple

Aren't those pay statistics infuriating, pagar?

I just read them to my son.

Stephanie Nene Not your normal Grandma

Thanks for the info on the musicians. Brenda runs with an interesting crowd. She was hanging with the Allmans a few months ago when Gregg died.

Powering down to get ready to load the car.

Will check in if anyone wants to do the football pool thing. See my post above if you do.

Y'all behave!


Anonamom, we were encouraged to learn CPR when Jr. was in the NICU, so we took a class at the hospital.

Since that was a third of a century ago, I may sign up for a refresher:)


-peter, glad you got to spend time with your son.

I know all about the pain of a loss to Iowa.

MM, what could one possibly do that would entitle one to a 6 figure bonus as a HR manager?
I'm really puzzled as to what the entire division does that would require over 10 people?


I'm trying to figure out why the VA needs 3500 cops.

Off to bed. Maybe the answer will come in my dreams.



And people think there is something wrong with me that after shooting the journalists, I want to next work on bureaucrats.


MM's 6:27 tells you everything you need to know about Obama's popularity in DC.

He had the best synchophants money can buy.

Ig, you haven't posted about your boy for a while (so far as I recall anyway). How's he doing?

Please chip in other folks.

We'll put your head in a blender, so you'll be a mixed up kid.

O & "roommate" had a nice sofa and carpet for college kids.

Sarsour: Nobody gets to tell an occupied people how to respond to their own oppression and the continued stripping of their humanity
She got that right, but not the culprit.


Looks like industry-wide our urine tests will be a bit more in depth than previous.

That’s gonna be a problem, daddy. As you get up in years you pee more often but how are they going to run all those tests with less volume?

a bit more in depth
You triggered a memory of my wee Ralph being skewered last year after blood in mine. Loads of fun.


Heard Martha Stewart on Fox Bartiromo while driving to work (-21° on the car thermometer).

Stewart has crossed streams, partnering with a “culture” and “style” cooking show/celeb dinner party with QVC, Amazon, VH1, and ... Snoop Dog.

“Danger, Will Robinson” is going off all around as the tolerance for BS goes to eleven.

Sounds like the confluence of Washington, Hollywood, and Wall Street, grubbing for anyone gullible enough to open their wallet.


This is from the latest weasel unearthed at buzzfeed:


narciso, I am amused they are still quoting "Hillary Clinton's campaign" as if that were an ongoing thing.


This is from last year, but like the flying dutchman its apparently a thing


Does anyone know the best place to order flowers on-line to ship to a far away state? I don't have a local florist here.

I mentioned that my friend's son died of an overdose about 10 days ago. Well she was supposed to come home today but her brother died last night. He decided to go off dialysis and take the cocktail. My friend is actually doing better because she got to use her hospice skills. But I'd like to send flowers to the family and don't quite know where to get them.


Headline in RCP:

USCG Polar Star Departs for Antarctic Military Operations David Krapf, WorkBoat -

The first sentence of the article.

"The United States’ only heavy icebreaker departed Honolulu Friday bound for Antarctica as part of the U.S. military operation to resupply the U.S. Antarctic Program."

Even icebreakers need a holiday in the sun


Because they think a foreigner will convince us that Trump is just like Venezuela's Chevez. No, really.
"Andrés Miguel Rondón is a Venezuelan economist who lives in Madrid. Despite his lack of any experience in Trump's America, the Post published a column by him ... I doubt Andrés Miguel Rondón has talked to any Trump supporters -- Madrid is not our favorite hangout -- but a steady diet of the American press can turn Fake News into deeply held convictions for the small minded. ... The Rondóns of the world are confused thanks to our third-rate American press."


Jane, I've Googled "florists" in the recipient's area and ordered from the one whose reviews best indicate quality and satisfaction. There always seems to be one that's a clear local favorite.


Another weird tweet by Comey, 10:50 last night.

For years in leadership talks I’ve used LeBron James as an example of the relentless pursuit of improvement. Now he offers another great example - in balance and perspective.

The walls are closing in.


Just go to They'll send from a local florist.


And only 13 minutes later...

James Comey is the ultimate virtue signaler. He attempts to convey righteousness when in fact he is responsible for politicizing the once proud @FBI. #ComeyIsCorrupted

Jane, I discovered a good local florist so this is perhaps a stale recommendation but years back I used (1 800 SEND FTD).

Do you have a delivery address? Funeral home or family address.

There's an FAQ on the website.

Blessings on all concerned.


new thread...


If you've never actually looked at "The Dossier" a copy is displayed here.
"Why, you might ask, would the friends of Vladimir Putin entrust Christopher Steele with the goods on Russia's alleged efforts to intervene on behalf of Donald Trump in the presidential campaign? I have not seen a good answer to that question."

New weather term.

Plus I figured out how to o links on my iPad!
