Don't they need to find the filleted guy first?

Habeus Corpus used to be a requirement of some sort.

I knew I should have checked first before commenting.

So henry, Romney the LD Twitter master did you say?

Watch me pull a rabbit out of the hat!

Just a little Joseph Smith lingo.

Rosenstein has agreed to speak with Judiciary committee on I believe Oct24 or 26 behind closed doors.
He better or else calls for his resignation will only increase.

henry

NYT is all "person close to this" and "persons close to that." Why believe a word of it?

Extraneus

Great. Give the fall guy a golden parachute, too, and move on. This whole thing is silly. Who gives a shit about some Saudi MB dissident?

Extraneus

Calls for his resignation will mean nothing if Dems take the House on 11/6. Just a matter of time now. We should try to read into why he would agree to appearing so soon before the election.

henry

Pin, as a late edit, perhaps "LD Twit" fits better.

Has Trump been secretly been drone killing Muslims? Are all the #nevertrumper neo-cons conflicted that PDJT hasn't slaked their thirst for ME boots on the ground intervention? Let's get this party started.

What the hell? Heresy!

Seriously, that post by Joan made my day, so I can only imagine what it did for you.

Let's hand Rosenstein an Apple Watch for his retirement.

Last night a couple of threads back there was some discussion of either Notre Dame or Ohio State being able to beat Bama...

So last weekend we watched ND barely beat Pitt during the two intermissions in the stadium band concert. (Pitt band was excellent, btw, and since it was Band Reunion we had both WonderChildren out on the field.)

Afterwards WonderBoy (aka Eeyore) was predicting that if ND goes to the playoffs it will be just like his freshman year when they were undefeated and got slaughtered in the national championship game. But WonderGirl demurred. Said that ND has the ultimate weapon — Ian Book. Because Alabama players are really bad at books...

JMH, I'm late on this, but that portrait of Elizabeth R. was really lovely--I had never seen it before.

The Crown Prince managed to kill the peaceful Islam talking point. I haven't heard from it in weeks.

catsmeat,

My grandfather, the emigrant Englishman, had two Gluyas Willams's sketches in his study. I think my cousin absconded with them. Same guy who was friends with Plum.

It is bitter cold here with a strong NE wind. Even the Beagles want to come in after a few minutes outside. Got the fireplace on for the first time.

Good news here on the East End. Lee Zeldin leading Perry Gershon [The Full Commie] by 8 pts. Hamptons don't make a difference since the electoral population is west of the cannel. But all the Broadway liberals out here are like Liz Smith and can't believe anyone would vote for Zeldin. LOL.

Always good to get confirmation Tammy Baldwin is getting tossed to the curb.

I have no idea what is happening with the Kashoggi thing.

However, I do know that the NYT story is fake news.

Ex,

I am the second guy in the back row. Yelling. Since I cannot hold a tune.

My son tells me to only sing when all the guitars, drums and vocals are blasting.

henry

Having beer to a symphony of combines. There is a combine active in every soy bean field in sight right now, with clear weather forecast for the next week or so. A race against falling prices? The guy next door took in his corn this morning, the stalks were still green. Strong dollar does not help exports, curious what Trump will say as Montana does Ag too.

Extraneus

Notice the first guy is on his toes.

henry

I must be the dude in the front row wearing glasses trying to find out which page they are on.

I remember attending a "whiskeypalian" service with my cousin. I had no idea whether to stand, kneel or sit, then the hymnal had three different numbers on every page. I might as well have been on Mars. Silent reflection is so much simpler.

Pinandpuller

A good way to mitigate climate change is to turn Mecca into a giant mirror.

Extraneus

My father couldn't sing Happy Birthday, Jack, or keep the time of it, yet I and my two brothers became semi-pro musicians. Our mother was into music, though she never played an instrument. I've mentioned here that she had the 1st and 2nd Led Zeppelin albums when they first came out. She loved Bob Seger.

Also Bob Costas, which I was totally against.

Catsmeat

The guy on his toes is trying to sing over the Wagnerian creature in front of him! I don't look like any of them, thankfully.

I'm used to the Episcopalian up and down by now--a lifelong thing--but I see how it's confusing. We now say things in the bulletin such as "kneel as you are able"--doesn't really help. Basically, it's "stand" for praise and affirmation (say, creeds), kneel for prayer and supplication, and sit for the sermon and the announcements--sometime the latter seem longer!

JM Hanes

Miss Marple:

Carrying over from the previous thread, I think it may actually have been President Trump, himself, who said that he doesn't trust everyone in the White House, in a recent interview, not Melania.

Catsmeat: Gluyas Williams and buxom sopranos


Note to self: never make a silly joke about flat sopranos to an academic researcher.

;-)

Miss Marple

JM Hanes,

I know he said it, but there were comments on CTH which indicated she had said it as well. They were approving as they felt she was on the same page as her husband. Something fry me to look for later. I will report.

Threadkiller

It was Melania, JMH:

TOM LLAMAS: Do you think there's still people there that he can't trust?

MELANIA TRUMP: Yes.

TOM LLAMAS: Still working now?

MELANIA TRUMP: Yes.

TOM LLAMAS: How hard do you think it is for him to be president, knowing that there's also that contingent of people that are close to him?

MELANIA TRUMP: Well, it's harder to governor -- governing. It's -- you know, you always need to watch your back.

I think they both said as much lately. Don't have time to look it up.

Extraneus

Isn't there a rally tonight? Anyone have a link?

Miss Marple

When I was a Methodist I sang in the choir, and rehearsals were every Wednsday night, and we were a mixed bag although that drawing doesn' t show a character like Everett Harrell, a hog farmer tenor in his 80's who showed up in bib overalls.

I also sang tenor, as they were short in that category and had a surplus of altos. Everett and I were pals. We also had two tenors with actual talent, one of whom had sung in the Notre Dame glee club. I was good at following them, and Everett followed me.

I loved choral music and the chance to participate. I miss it a lot, but doubt I could go back, as I am way out of practice.

Pinandpuller

I've heard of theater in the round but never theater in 90 degrees. White people bought an old "Barber Shop" in an "Urban Neighborhood" and turned it into a less than 50 seat theater. Seats along stage front and stage right at a right angle. I smell trouble a brewin'.

boatbuilder

I thought Bob Costas' second album was pretty good.

JM Hanes

Back in the day, I'd have been somewhere in the middle singing whatever part was missing, depending on who didn't show up. Need a tenor? Need a soprano? No problem. Never could remember the words to anything though, and totally clutched in any kind of audition, so it's a good thing I had no professional ambitions.

Miss Marple

Extraneous,

Conservative Treehouse usually posts live links, but none are up yet.

The rally is at 6:30 Mountain Time, so the doesn't start for another 45 minutes (at least President Trump's speech).

Catsmeat, I am used to sitting in the back bench of the meeting house and silently reflecting for 45 minutes to an hour. Anything else is confusing. It was my first (and last) service in a church. I was trying to keep up, and placed between my cousin and my uncle (Retired Admiral) I was trying to not drive them nuts during the service. The words you used to distinguish standing, kneeling, and sitting have situational meanings that I have no reference for. Had the same problem in high school English class. How can I write an essay on the imagery of the rosary in some novel when I don't know what kind of flower arrangement that is (and I was too stubborn to ask)? [ BTW, I now know it isn't some kind of bush.]. The teacher couldn't believe I didn't know what any of the stuff in these novels was, and that I wasn't putting her on. Hence a chemistry major later.

henry

RSBN at 8:30 eastern for the rally.

Extraneus

Don't get me started on Bob Costas, bb.

She had this fantasy of me smoking a pipe when I grew up. She always liked those Sherlock Holmes types, and what they wore and how they talked.

And Bob Costas, which, as I say, I was totally against.

Mom was a Brooklyn gal, descended from butchers.

JM Hanes

TK:

"It was Melania,"

Aa it turns out, the President agreed with her, on the record, a week later. Per The Hill

[Trump's] comment came in response to one made by first lady Melania Trumpduring an interview last week, in which she said there are people who work in the West Wing she can't trust.

"I feel the same way," Trump told CBS's Lesley Stahl on Sunday. "I don’t trust everybody in the White House. I’ll be honest with you."

I sure wish there were some way to find out who the rats are.

When I was in jr high choir class the teacher asked me to kindly just move my lips. I'm quite tone deaf.

This is what it is all about. Wonderful, remarkable people.

"anonamom, I hope you're on here and read this note. Two years ago this week you helped me so, so much. I had just brought my husband home from a hellish six days in hospital after his skull fracture and the subdural hematomas and frontal brain bleeds, and, for some reason, I posted about it. I felt so alone and afraid. You helped me so much. The book, 'My Stroke of Insight' opened my eyes to how much a person can improve and recover after a traumatic brain injury. And, the Omega-3 Protocol for Brain Injury gave me a forward path.

Every time I see your 'name' on here, I thank God that I did reach out and you answered. Thank you so much. I think that though the fish oil, etc. helped him, you gave me the confidence that got me through those next six to eight months that were so difficult. Thank you again.

We love coloring books, cathyf!! :)

Jack is Back!

Mrs. JiB is a trained soprano, who refuses to sing in the choir but when we have to sing in mass, everyone in front turns around to look at her. LOL. I mean she is a terrific trained voice but doesn't want to use it in company:)

That said, if I am Trump and Melania, I would also do the same thing, and suspect subversives in my company. Keeps everyone on their toes.

Evening all, so they are blaming a black, sandhurst graduate from asir, a neglected border province with Yemen, right?

Is there a name for that art style other than reminiscent of New Yorker Cartoons?

JM Hanes

henry:

I was reared as a Unitarian, but my parents had us attend all kinds of services, just so that we'd be familiar with them, especially after we moved south where nobody even knew what a Unitarian was. Folks who had heard of it thought it was some sort of cult -- which it wasn't, back then. It was a small Fellowship, so it was pretty simple, but I used to love going to midnight mass with my high school Episcopalian friends on Christmas Eve. I think there were even fewer Quakers than Unitarians, though, so I never attended a meeting.

boatbuilder

Ext--once he went disco that did it for me.

Did she really have a thing for Bob Costas? How many years of therapy?

henry,

Maybe they are all fleeing to foreign countries.

JMH, my best friend growing up was an Evangelical. Never went to a service with him, but did go to weekend camp outs in the Ozarks. Lots of good people, they kept things simple too.

Miss Marple

I need a church which leaves me alone about smoking and martinis but otherwise follows the Gospel.

Someone posted a link to GP showing the lines of people waiting for this evening's rally. It doesn't appear that Trump is losing many supporters...

To tie two recent topics together, here's a list of the top 25 most beautiful sopranos, some buxom, some not.

ok, some of them are mezzo-sopranos.

henry:

Good grief, I left out the part that made me think about posting. The Fellowship had no Sunday School when we arrived, so my brother and I were packed off to the Presbyterian Church for lessons our first year. We kept ending up on the wrong side of our instructors, outspoken as we were used to being, so after awhile, we would cheerfully wave my parents good-bye when they dropped us off, scoot over to the only drug store in town which was miraculously open on Sunday and actually had a soda bar. We just made sure we were back waiting on the curb to ride home.

Pinandpuller

The only thing I know about Unitarians is the place on Sawyer Brown Road I drove by at random times day or night was never open for business.

Beasts of England

Gorgeous live scene from Montana. Dang.

Threadkiller

Oxford Cafe? That will fuck with some unidentified sock puppet, IIRC.

:-D

Miss Marple

My son's car started when he got home and tightened the cables. Thank God.

He still is dealing with a multitude of issues with that car, but he bought it for $800, so his thinking is to sell it for junk and get one from a friend who runs a low cost dealership.

We will see.

JM Hanes

Pure genius, boatbuilder!

henry

JMH, the Meeting in St Louis had no First Day School, and only half a dozen kids. So they put my mom in charge of it as my brothers and I were half the class. That made skipping out difficult. ;)

Unitarians -- that brings back memories.

I was married in the First Unitarian Church of Berkeley. It has a great location, and we had the reception on the terrace, which has great views of the San Francisco Bay.

The only oddity was that the church is located in Kensington, a small town just north of Berkeley. Why the name then? Consider the acronym if the proper location had been used.

Jack is Back!

Guilty of what, TK? You called out some guy as me when it wasn't me and then try to make it to be me. I am calling you out for being paranoid, you fit the clinical description. Give it a break.

henry

LOL Dr J! At least they paid attention to detail.

JM Hanes

henry:
Ha! The smaller the church, the harder it is to escape attention. A few years later, once our fellowship had its own digs, my mother volunteered me as a teacher for the little ones....

Catsmeat

Fair enough about church habits, henry!

Sbw, I am ashamed to say I missed your joke about flatness and just plowed on...I think I was duller (perhaps) than usual because I really was annoyed about my choir-mate, especially as the situation is unfixable. I can't do what Mrs. JiB admirably does--I've been outed and pressed into service.

Unitarians: the only denomination that mentions God less than the Episcopalians...

With only a few exceptions all those gorgeous Opera singers are soooo young. The ones I recognize are dead, so it's doubly depressing.

Battery cables can become corroded or lose conductivity themselves at their contact point on the frame and ignition harness. Also if the battery wasn't tied down all this time it could have stress fractured enough individual copper strands to not charge or discharge the battery properly.

My old pastor, a former Methodist who became non-denominational, gave the invocation at Onbama's Inauguration.

I am very suspicious about a lot of these people.
