Tom R, Chitown Lurker said it was a boystown event start to finish in a private message this morning.

Jim Eagle

henry, Ohnsman twisted himself in knots to get that explanation out.


Good afternoon! The first night we stayed here in Florida,the fire alarms in every room went off at 3 in the morning. We had taken a flight down to get everything set up and our first reaction was,thank goodness the dog isn't here. The Walmart is open 24 hours,so hubby was buying batteries at about 3:05 that morning.
The laundry room is my turf,but hubby does most of the cooking. We take turns grocery shopping,otherwise hubby despises shopping. I don't think he's bought underwear or socks during our marriage. :)


The big joke is that his new underwear and socks magically appeared in his bureau.

Old Lurker

Marlene did you happen to see that youtube I posted a while ago about the magic coffee table?

I haven't caught up yet.

On Twitter I am seeing that a protester and a Secret Service agent were struck by a vehicle in President Trump's motorcade when the protester tried to run into the motorcade and the agent tried to intervene.

President Trump is fine.


Another "green" fiasco!

<== This young lady learned how to imitate the guy across the street's truck backing up before she ever learned anything else, because her sleeping cage was in the front bedroom at the time, and the neighbor leaves for work around 5 AM.

My brother's golden retrievers were apparently traumatized by smoke detectors beeping last Summer in the middle of the night when 3 of them "expired" at their Cape house over the course of a couple of weeks.

Last time we visited, she was making her truck sound and the dogs were whimpering. She might get dis-invited next time.

Dems in Virginia wanting abortions up to the day of birth has Rush really mad...

You can't make this stuff up.

It is a fair observation that anybody willing to accept/support/promote NY or this is so far gone mentally, ethically, and logically, that how should those people be reliable enough to vote right on constitutional/monetary/taxation/liberty & rights/and so on or support the people they do.

Open House next week at the Ledge for people wanting to kick the tires...



All you great dishwashers are invited to my house to take care of things until my sink gets in. I'll feed you and serve you drinks - oh and it's a lot warmer here than there.


Celine Dionne looking like a vampire. Seriously. Scared the heck out of me when it popped up on Twitter:



So I installed a switch by the kitchen (lighted toggle when off) which would shut all the power off to all of them if triggered by the kitchen smoke.

When our house was built in NYS, no switches were allowed. Not even the lighted ones.

Can't or won't? There is always someone there to rescue them from their "incompetence". :)
Or maybe I have Mad Skilz and they are incompetent in comparison...

WonderGirl does report that all of the other girls in the dorm are totally impressed by the room layout that I designed for her and her roommate.

Eric Schneiderman, the former New York attorney general who resigned after multiple allegations of physically abusing women, used nearly $340,000 in political campaign funds to pay the law firm that represented him.

I think New Jersey needs a Wall to protect themselves from New Yorkers.


Speaking of New Jersey and Manhattan, I vaguely recall that Hamilton and Burr rowed across to Jersey for their duel because Burr claimed Hamilton was cucking him by making the moves on Burr's wife. Was that correct?

I ask because I still find it astounding that Bezos cucking that Movie Producers wife has elicited zero comments from the cucked hubby. I guess that sort of stuff was of a lot more interest to our Colonial forefathers than it is to today's news absorbers.

Day 24 of the Bezos Media silence continues.


Funny tweet, Tom R. I assume he was ok.

According to this there are now more judicial vacancies than when Trump took office.


I don't recall reading anything during the Obama era regarding the number of judicial vacancies he filled. Are the number of vacancies Obama filled comparable to how many vacancies are occurring under Trump? I'm guessing under Obama the GOP cooperated and confirmed almost all of his judicial appointments with only a few exceptions while under Trump the Democrats are doing everything within their power to slow down the confirmation process.


At the very least Brokaw needs to NAME the Republicans that said they didn't want "brown grandbabies".

Correct, Janet. That's the lie of his that makes me the most angry.

Sandy Daze

A bit brisk here in 49242 today, as denizens of the entire northern mid-west understand... In fact, I do not think I have even been in such cold temps in my life.

On recommendation, recently finished

Told a friend, who recommended:


(Both I most strongly recommend.)

I suppose I am like a few if not many who knew the name "Chosin" but did not know anything about the battles that took place there.

I am not worthy.

Today being the coldest day I have ever known, I thought I might, as a small way of memorializing in my own thoughts their extraordinary effort and sacrifice, take a walk in the minus 12 (wind chill too, give the 15+ steady and gusting much higher) degree temperature--which I understand is still much warmer than the minus 20s++ at Chosin.

I should be able to do this, right? I might be a bit older than they were, maybe much older, but still in all...I should be able to do this. Mrs Daze said, "No you are not." I said "yes I am." She said, "you're not taking the dogs" --which we were in agreement on.

I walked the mile to my neighbor's farm in just under an hour, a route that normally takes my dogs and me something shy of 30 minutes.

I had multiple layers, thinsulate boots (not the rubber boots those MARINES and GIs had that turned to iceblocks). I was outside for an hour, not the five or so days at Chosin. I was not fighting for my life against the Red Army ChiComs.

God Bless them All.

Requiescat In Pace


When officers showed up at the apartment, the rope was still around Smollett’s neck, said Guglielmi, who described the rope as a “thin, light rope.” Guglielmi said the rope didn’t necessarily resemble a noose.

I recall that when CNN's Reporter Richard Quest was arrested in Central Park with illegal drugs on his person, he had a dildo in his boot and a rope tied around his crank and around his neck. Perhap's we could get some comment from Dick Quest on why he thinks Tawana Smolett had a rope tied around his neck.

Richard Quest, CNN Reporter, Arrested On Drug Charges

The New York Post reports on new, lurid details regarding the arrest of CNN reporter Richard Quest.

CNN personality Richard Quest was busted in Central Park early yesterday with some drugs in his pocket, a rope around his neck that was tied to his genitals, and a sex toy in his boot, law-enforcement sources said.[...]

Quest was initially busted for loitering, the source said. Aside from the oddly configured rope, the search also turned up a sex toy inside of his boot, and a small bag of methamphetamine in his left jacket pocket.

It wasn’t immediately clear what the rope was for.

Well let's ask Dick and find out!


Here's Dick's mug shot on Meth:

Dave (in MA) does your bird talk? Does it sound like you? I smile every time I see the picture. My aunt had a mynah bird and it sounded just like her. My aunt and uncle lived in town near my high school. A few times when I missed the bus,I'd walk to their house to call my father to pick me up after work. I'd knock on the door and hear,"hello." I never knew if it was my aunt or the bird talking until she answered the door.


Really, this shouldn't be that hard. It appears that there is great confusion about the rope tied around Tawana Smolett's neck. Maxine Watters and others are claiming it is evidence of hate crimes by 2 White, anti-gay, anti-Black, anti-homosexual thugs, out on the streets of Chicago at 2 AM in -20 degree weather, just waiting to find a Black celebrity they beat up so, and in this case they got lucky.

We need to diffuse this situation as rapidly and as deftly as that Vietnam Vet 'Injun' diffused the situation of those aggressive White Chrustian kids on the DC mall who surrounded those peaceful Black Israelites that they wanted to lynch.

So c'mon "Light in the Loafers" Jake Tapper. C'mon "Tea-Bagger" Anderson Cooper. C'mon "Black Holer" Don Lemon. Let's leave Roger Stone alone, enjoying being in Prison, and lets bring your CNN colleague Richard Quest on your CNN panel so he can tell us what is the likely reason that gay guys like Tawana Smollett tie ropes around their necks, and lets get some solid questions and answers about what the rest of that rope was tied around. You guys at CNN owe that to the public, and to fans of David Carradine everywhere.

Did he store them on Hillary’s closet server? Oh right, he indicted Russians and they showed up in court for discovery. Mueller, once again showing what a dumbass he is.

Old Lurker,

I listened to that video and posted it earlier today, but since we are on a new page I am glad you posted about it again.

I am particularly outraged because he talks about "babies with disabilities or abnormalities." My daughter was a cleft lip and palate baby. She had 3 surgeries by a pioneer is cosmetic surgery for these kids and she is stunningly beautiful and you would never know it.

Is it ok to crush these kids and tear them apart? How about Downs syndrome kids? What if the baby is missing a couple of fingers?

This whole thing is just horrifying.

Also, the people who are convinced that the human trafficking is for human organs and blood for the elite point out that these laws are being passed as Trump is getting child trafficking reduced.


3. No electronic device such as a smoke detector which includes a 9V battery shall be allowed to announce a dwindling charge by emitting any sort of "Beep" unless it lights up and leaves on a LED indicator light with the first such beep so men can locate the source of the beep.

We just got a new Jeep for one of the daughters yesterday. The damn dinging bell that goes off if you don't have on your seatbelt is the most G**D***ed irritating thing on the planet@#$%

Why the hell can't they make a bell that goes off when the 'frigerator door doesn't completely shut, instead of one that irritates the hell out of freedom loving, decent Americans who don't wannna' put on a damn seat belt.

Bankrupt California Utility Shedding More Than $40 Billion Worth Of Green Energy Contracts

"public interest" attorneys are crowing nightly on local news about the "immoral" intent of PG&E's efforts to do so.

but! it wasn't immoral for an appointed "green energy commish" to install a fixed percentage of green energy supplies to consumer bills without prior opt-in by consumers.

of course, the little notice PG&E sent out in December to "select counties" (our populous Alameda County among others) said basically 'you are free to opt out after the first month billing has been paid.

cancel the contracts. some of these so-called companies are SJW non-profits who produce nothing but re-sold capacity at a higher price. bet my bottom dollar there are federal subsidies for that scam too.

how much money does Communist China stand to lose if the green scam goes tits up? considering how much of the domestic solar fixture installation relies on Communist China's fixture production--- a butt-ton.


Howie Carr's current topic is illegal immigrants mooching off the system. He just mentioned Obama's illegal alien Aunt:

Howie: Tom, I used to get calls from people telling me "You don't know what you're talking about, Howie, illegal Aliens are not on Welfare." Do you remember a woman named Auntie Zatuni? She was the Aunt of President Barrack Obama. One of the local TV stations interviewed her. She was living in Public Housing in South Boston on Welfare, and she said on TV "God wanted me to have this Welfare." She was an illegal alien. And you know what Tom, I've never got a serious call disputing what I said about Illegal Aliens getting Welfare after Aunty Zatuni went on TV, the President's Aunt, and said she was collecting.

Reminds me of that song from West Side Story:

I like to be in America
Okay by me in America

Now if you'll excuse me I need to drive downtown (with my seat belt bell dinging) to apply for my 2019 PFD check.

our latest lease dings a seat belt warning bell three beats then stops.

our 1998 Nissan Pathfinder (180,000 miles and going strong!) doesn't ding at all.

the $200 ticket for not wearing a seat belt (if caught--- and i got fingered for it in 2007) has me buckling up.

but what really got me to religiously buckle up was a traffic school video i watched 3 years ago: the impact in a 4 passenger scenario of a rear passenger not wearing a seatbelt at 45 MPH rear-ending a stopped car.

the unbelted passenger's body flew around the car killing the other three passengers and itself.

can't imagine what happens at typical Califas freeway speeds of 75 and 80 in those tiny jellybean rockets dominating the roads.

SBW, bet you are right about the legality today of placing a switch, lighted or not, in a smoke detector circuit. Those codes change quickly and today you probably cannot do what I did.

So, it's been cold in the winter before.

I will echo cathy f's comment about wearing a wool skirt on such days being memorably nippy. Mine was houndstooth though, not plaid.
I could wear tights instead of knee socks though so that helped some.

I verified earlier this afternoon that winter 1976-77 followed by 1977-78 were southern Michigan's two coldest on record to date, and that Jan 16-18, 1977 had lows of -21, -24 and -23 recorded.

58 straight hours of sub zero temperatures.

Old Lurker

sbw, now you have me thinking about my Smoke Detector System and the safety of my switch cutoff. Granted my system was for my house with me as the overprotective OCD house master.

So I made sure that if the switch is ever off, it lights bright red to show that the switch is off and is clearly labeled so everybody knows what it means, and it is so central you walk by it wherever you go in the house. Secondly, I made sure that the AC only smokes I put in all have green leds when powered so there is that. Finally, not trusting myself completely, I did have my alarm guy install several office building grade smokes run off his system that can never be bypassed. Those suckers never beep and never have false alarms.

So I am covered but until you mentioned it I had not thought who else might see my idea but not do all the other things that make my setup safe for us.

Thanks for making me think about my post and be careful to warn copycats to do things by code!

OK, I feel better now.

cathyf, anonamom,

Us public school kids had to wear skirts, too. You weren't allowed to wear slacks to school around here until some time in the 70's.

I can remember being forced to go outside for recess and a bunch of us would huddle together, crouched down on the playground with our skirts pulled over our legs!

"answer to the dishwasher dilemma is to have two and you move the dishes from one to the other as you use them."

Hoyden, nice try. Human nature defeats that seeming good idea.

So there.


There are smoke detectors with 10-year lithium batteries.

Most people would be happy to have to change those 5 or 6 more times.


Sandy Daze

Younger daughter had RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome) when she was around 11 or 12 (that is, maybe a dozen+ years ago).

A variety of doctors couldn't figure out what was going on, none had the right diagnosis. Weeks turned to months and she was not getting any better. Eventually through the referral process we landed at the Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters (CHKD) in Norfolk, Virginia.

Ralph Northam was the physician.

He correctly diagnosed her, treated her, and successfully resolved the RSD. That he was a former Army doctor in a military town was no surprise. That he was a southern gentleman in the finest sense of the word was an unexpected pleasure. What a great doc.

I do not know what happens to some people. Is it power? Maybe he was always a leftist. Hard to come to terms with the gentle giant who successfully resolved younger daughter's RSD, with his heinous support and promotion of full term abortion.

Soon the demand will be for fourth trimester, fifth trimester, any trimester abortion.

When does it stop?


Brother-in-law is a PA, started as a Navy Corpsman. Not to put too fine a point on it, but when he discusses medical procedures, he seems completely devoid of any sense of humanity.

Ext, those 10 year things are great, actually. In truth the sensors themselves should be changed out from time to time anyway because they get dirty and less effective over time. Ten years I can live with, but 9v batteries with a shelf life of 1.3 years +/- is a killer.

“I am concerned about the manner in which the arrest was effectuated, especially the number of agents involved, the tactics employed, the timing of the arrest, and whether the FBI released details of the arrest and the indictment to the press prior to providing this information to Mr. Stone’s attorneys,” Graham, a South Carolina Republican, wrote FBI Director Christopher Wray on Wednesday.

Graham is requesting a briefing from the FBI by Feb. 5 into the raid, which he asserted matched the tactics typically used to arrest a violent criminal.

He is also demanding to know whether the press was tipped off about Stone’s impending arrest. CNN cameras were rolling as a swarm of armed FBI agents and U.S. marshals stormed Stone’s property shortly before dawn on Jan. 25.

Obviously she was hired for her Russia expertise...


The wife of a Justice Department official who worked for Fusion GPS during the 2016 campaign told Congress in 2018 that one of her tasks at the opposition research firm was to research President Donald Trump’s children, including their business activities and travel.

Nellie Ohr, a former contractor for Fusion GPS, also told lawmakers during an Oct. 19 deposition that she recalls that Christopher Steele gave her husband, Justice Department official Bruce Ohr, materials from the infamous anti-Trump dossier funded by Democrats.

Ohr said during the testimony that Steele, who like her was a contractor for Fusion GPS, hoped that her husband would pass the materials to the FBI.

“My understanding was that Chris Steele was hoping that Bruce could put in a word with the FBI to follow up in some way,” Ohr testified to members of the House Oversight and House Judiciary Committees, according to transcripts confirmed by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

The Amazon chief’s security consultants suspect the leak to the National Enquirer may have been politically motivated.

So what.

Northam: Critics Are Taking My Late-Term Abortion Comments Out of Context

Northam said through a spokesperson that his controversial comments were meant to defend the right of women to obtain an abortion when facing "difficult circumstances" like nonviable pregnancies or severe fetal abnormalities. He blamed backlash to his comments on Republicans "trying to play politics."

"Republicans in Virginia and across the country are trying to play politics with women's health, and that is exactly why these decisions belong between a woman and her physician, not legislators, most of whom are men," a statement from a spokesman began.

"No woman seeks a third trimester abortion except in the case of tragic or difficult circumstances, such as a nonviable pregnancy or in the event of severe fetal abnormalities, and the governor's comments were limited to the actions physicians would take in the event that a woman in those circumstances went into labor. Attempts to extrapolate these comments otherwise is in bad faith and underscores exactly why the governor believes physicians and women, not legislators, should make these difficult and deeply personal medical decisions," the statement continued.
