In one hundred years when humans look back on the way we adorn our bodies in 2019, what do you think will be viewed as the most nutty?

1) High Heels
2) Neck Ties
3) Tattoos
4) Nose Rings

If I consider we are "Evolving" I suppose I'd put Nose Rings as most egregious, then Tattoos, and then probably High Heels for the harm they cause to women's toes, feet, spines, etc

If I consider that we are "Devolving" I'd put Neck Ties at the top of the list since Tat's, Nose Rings, and Hooker High Heels will be De Rigueur, whereas nobody would have any idea of whatever function a Neck Tie was ever created for.

OL,

We moved back to Southampton for his education but now that he is boarding school we don't have to be there. Now we can sell Southampton, and our investment condo down here, live in the continuing renovating house here in Florida, never shovel snow and play golf and tennis into the sunset.

Will I miss Southampton? Sure, but I can always go back and rent for a month. I only went to school there for the first 3 grades, so its not like I have life long friends. But I do have lots of friends in the Southampton Association who wanted me to run for Mayor:) Another reason to leave.

Iggy,

1913, my grandfather built it for $25K. You can't even rent it for a week now at that price:) No big deal for me. My heritage is in my museum colletion and the history of the family. Plus my English cousins want me to move back there. No way!

BTW, there is a real karbunckle being built on Meadow Lane, that is 60% complete and has been shut down for over a year. It is 16K sq.ft., Morrocan designed, that the Hedge Fund guy may want to tear it down and start over again. Over 2 acres on the ocean. Just an incredible building with towers, roofs, and turrets. Already spent $35 million. I should send the Press article to AOC just to make her cough on her coffee.

I sincerely doubt any heterosexual man will ever consider high heels nutty.

Sorry Captain, I didn't catch that. Say again:)

Reminds me, JiB of that joke Bob Hope used to tell about the acceptance of Homosexuality. He said something like it didn't bother him currently, but he was worried that California was gonna' make it mandatory.

I am making out my grocery list for tomorrow. Normally I would wait until Saturday so my daughter could go with me and help me load things, but we are supposed to have snow on Saturday so I am heading to Kroger tomorrow morning.

I just went through the digital coupons and there are a lot for brands I have never heard of, or products I wouldn't buy even if they were dirt cheap.

The big offer this week is saving $10 on a $30 pet supplies purchse, and because I have to buy a 20-lb bag of dog food, a bag of cat food, cat litter, and canned dog food, I should hit that easily.

At least UnderArmour doesn't make exploding shoes.

Wasnt that the joke that set off the national reviews bluenoses when steyn mentioned it:

daddy

Cummings ignoring the rules for statement dissemination as he did yesterday. If I heard Mark Meadows correctly, Rs got it at 7:15 am; they were supposed to have it 24 hours in advance. CNN had it the night before! But that's why there was "no defense of POTUS"--the RS and their staffs didn't know what they needed to defend.

Just read this from A'mom on catch-up and that certainly makes sense.

Yay! Just got to this:

Jonah Goldberg is leaving National Review in the coming months to start a new conservative media company with Steve Hayes, who was editor-in-chief of The Weekly Standard when its owner shut it down in December.

Hayes tells me about the startup, which doesn’t have a name now:

OL, make sure you catch that. It will make your day!

Wasnt that the joke that set off the national reviews bluenoses when steyn mentioned it:

Great memory, Narciso. Here's was Steyn's column at Nat Review (2013) : The Age of Intolerance

Last week, following the public apology of an English comedian and the arrest of a fellow British subject both for making somewhat feeble Mandela gags, I noted that supposedly free societies were increasingly perilous places for those who make an infelicitous remark. So let’s pick up where we left off:

Here are two jokes one can no longer tell on American television. But you can still find them in the archives, out on the edge of town, in Sub-Basement Level 12 of the ever-expanding Smithsonian Mausoleum of the Unsayable. First, Bob Hope, touring the world in the year or so after the passage of the 1975 Consenting Adult Sex Bill:

“I’ve just flown in from California, where they’ve made homosexuality legal. I thought I’d get out before they make it compulsory.”#ad#

For Hope, this was an oddly profound gag, discerning even at the dawn of the Age of Tolerance that there was something inherently coercive about the enterprise. Soon it would be insufficient merely to be “tolerant” — warily accepting, blithely indifferent, mildly amused, tepidly supportive, according to taste. The forces of “tolerance” would become intolerant of anything less than full-blown celebratory approval...

Some of my comrades, who really should know better,...

anonamom

Gentlejim, did I read that correctly???
Do you actually TICKET people driving the speed limit in the left lane??
You are my hero!

It was one thing to not understand how Trump won in 2016.

To not seem to comprehend that Evangelical vote three laters is willful ignorance, and not something he should be sharing. Anybody who is still asking that question should mortified, and certainly has no business, or credibility, writing political commentary.

Old Lurker

Jack, still jealous that you have been able to make such decisive and sensible decisions then move to implement them.

Our Nantucket house is titled in a purposely convoluted manner designed to keep it for future generations.

Potomac is the problem. Mrs. OL really wants to sell it but, if I went along with that, she either wants to be closer to the grandkids...or someplace warm like you guys in FL.

I am the problem in that. I designed and built this house over the last 45 years as our family grew, as my wallet grew, and as our tastes changed, and it affords me endless opportunities for more "improvement projects" which I enjoy. BUT...we live in about 15% of the place, it is more of a "summer" place with all the sports facilities and gardens, massive gardens...none of which do us any good because we move to Nantucket before June 1 and return at the end of October. The only people who see the place are the maids and gardeners and meter readers...which Mrs. OL claims is a waste of perfectly good money she could be spending on the grandchildren.

And it does not seem likely either of the kids will move their families to DC so they could have the house.

Like I said.

I am jealous.

daddy

This column, Why Mark Steyn Is No Longer with National Review goes into depth on Mark's leaving and if you scroll way down you will find how National Review criticized Mark's column I linked above, and how Mark came back guns blazing. Scroll down but here's a bit of that:

Steyn wrote a great column, published on National Review Online as “The Age of Intolerance”...

Along the way, he also repeated two now-“unsayable” jokes, including “How do you make a fruit cordial?” (Read the whole thing.)

...The same day, one of National Review’s editors, Jason Lee Steorts, responded publicly with a not-so-great post in the Corner, beginning, ironically,

"I admire Mark Steyn’s gallantry in defending freedom of speech and thought, but his weekend column is less than illuminating. It seems to have been 200 percent felt and half thought."

It went downhill from there...

...Steyn: It is a matter of some regret to me that my own editor at this publication does not regard this sort of thing as creepy and repellent rather than part of the vibrant tapestry of what he calls an “awakening to a greater civility”. I’m not inclined to euphemize intimidation and bullying as a lively exchange of ideas – “the use of speech to criticize other speech”, as Mr Steorts absurdly dignifies it. So do excuse me if I skip to the men’s room during his patronizing disquisition on the distinction between “state coercion” and “cultural coercion”. . . .

I am sorry my editor at NR does not grasp the stakes. Indeed, he seems inclined to “normalize” what GLAAD is doing. But, if he truly finds my “derogatory language” offensive, I’d rather he just indefinitely suspend me than twist himself into a soggy pretzel of ambivalent inertia trying to avoid the central point — that a society where lives are ruined over an aside because some identity-group don decides it must be so is ugly and profoundly illiberal...

...as Steyn put it in April 2014, “My final appearances at National Review Online were a spat with my editor, Jason Lee Steorts . . . .”

Old Lurker

Then like Jack...you are ahead of me, Buckeye.

Jim Eagle

OL,

Legacy is a bitch. You either protect and promote it or hide it. I decided to start the virtual online museum for Frederick because I knew Southampton would not be his future.

It is tough. But sometimes those decisions need to be made.

Plus I want to add to Cuomo's leavers.

Murano?

Old Lurker

"Plus I want to add to Cuomo's leavers."

That would be a big motivation for me to leave MD too, Jack.

"FUCKING SENIOR FELLOW."

Well let's see---John Derbyshire was fired, Kevin ("die Middle America") Williamson left, Steyn bailed, Hayes (if he ever was an NRO'er is on Siesta in Spain, Jonah is gone, JPod's a moron, ...I suppose anybody left is a senior editor just by the process of attrition.

The only surprising thing to me is why Prager and VDH don't bail out of that scabrous, shipwrecked salon.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Iggy "I always have to do a double take to check whether it says Explorer or Range Rover on the front lip of the hood."

When it came time to say goodbye to my daily driver BMW of 20+ years, I knew I could pick whatever I wanted for my next car. After looking around at all the makes and models I thought might interest me, I made EXACTLY that comment to Mrs. OL. They ALL look alike and you can't tell what it is until you see the emblem on the hood.

clarice

OL's house and grounds in Md are truly gorgeous. About the Southhampton lemon there was a smaller but still ugly monstrosity built like that near Longboat Key Fla . The architect was Iranian--the bank was stuck with the lemon for years until it finally sold. Eyesore. And right next to a major roadway.

If you win, OL, and want to move to Fla.I have a gorgeous lot in the dunes not far from JiB's--right on the Atlantic Ocean I'd like to sell now that my kids are in Hawaii.

Jim Eagle

OL,

What I worry about is the paradox that those NJ, NY, CT, MA, IL, leavers are bringing their politics here. Taxes and regulations that handcuff the rest of us here for low tax reasons. Why did they leave in the first place?

daddy

How about "Mediaocrity" as the name of Jonah's new rag.

They're mean bitches, too, aren't they? Both of them. Nasty.

I’m mostly on the street. I have an unmarked Explorer that I’m much happier in. I’d been in a 13 Taurus the last 6 years. The car would go like stink (ecoboost) but was too small for me.

Captain Hate

Hayes (if he ever was an NRO'er is on Siesta in Spain

He was Weakly Substandard. The Spain thing ended more abruptly than planned (unless I've gotten so fucking old that my concept of time is completely defunct) so whoever is manipulating his strings obviously had different plans.

To me Hayes is the most regrettable NT casualty because he did well researched and logical articles for the WS before it collectively lost its mind. Plus he was relaxed and affable on the gab shows before he became this nervous and angry twitch seemingly uncomfortable in his own skin. Until I can tie him up in a straitjacket and shoot him full of sodium pentothal I guess we'll never get the straight scoop.

Old Lurker

Iggy "And it's more practical; seats three."

You lost me right there. Back when I was looking for the perfect replacement car, my old BMW guy was sorry I didn't like "the new ones". He then said he could order up whatever combination of options I might want, but I lost him when I said I wanted a one door car with one seat...and buttons and knobs and no screen of any kind.

Iggy sometime in the last couple of years you posted a picture of a 100% perfect Morgan. That's what I want.

daddy

I believe Die Middle America may be back, daddy.

It's sounds sorta' like the Hotel California, Iggy, except in NR's case it isn't "You can Never leave," but rather its "You can never get them to leave."

Jonah Goldberg joined National Review in 1998 and was the founding editor of National Review Online. He'll continue as a fellow for the National Review Institute.

But of course.

Gardeners? Boy, would I love to have those!

I had to leave my garden which I had spent 30 years on, and although I have great ideas for this place, I find I don't have the joint strength for digging beds and holes for bushes and trees.

I may hire my son's Mexican landscape guys to do some of the work this spring. However, I have to get them when they are not covered up by lawn mowing and tree trimming.

Amazon backs out of massive Seattle office tower as questions swirl about growth plans

"Rainier Square was at the center of a heated tax battle between Amazon and Seattle last year that became emblematic of the company’s troubled relationship with its hometown. As Seattle considered a tax on top-grossing businesses to fund affordable housing, Amazon threatened not to move into Rainier Square, claiming the City Council’s approach “forces us to question our growth here.” Although Amazon came out on top in that dispute, its future at Rainier Square remained uncertain."

Though I guess she is technically right--she did not say "Mark Meadows is a racist."
She said "doing this, what Mark Meadows has done, is racist."

Meadows was infinitely better than the majority of his R bretheran, who would have apologized for their racist behavior.

MissMarple2

Old Lurker,

I have sort of overcome my grief, but let me tell you, I can still draw a complete plan of where the peony bushes were, the day lilies, the mums. I can still tell you where it was shady enough for moss, when the crab apples bloomed, when the birch tree my daughter bought me leafed out.

If you are a gardener you really learn to know the land.

What I want to do here is plant some trees, shade and flowering and maybe an evergreen, get some shrubs in along the fences, and maybe put in a perennial bed.

I did get roses planted in a bed last year, which I hope will make it through this crappy winter.

Anyway, big plans while winter hangs on....I will update as I get started.

I've been to a million bars, and I always go to the Hotel Lounge when they're serving free drinks and "Or Duvrees," but does that actually count as a cocktail party or is a cocktail party something different?

--Where do you get these great car pics, Iggy?--

Bing and/or Duck Duck Go Images.
The nice thing I've noticed, at Bing especially, which I never noticed before is, rather than looking for the right size photo or trying to resize one, most Bing [and other?] thumbnails now on the thumbnail page are perfectly sized for posting. If you copy the image location of the thumbnail and paste it here, if it has a short url that ends in "1.7" it will be a perfect fit.
Unfortunately occasionally you'll get a url that is about 300 lines of gibberish that you have to delete.

If you had chicken pox, the chicken pox herpes virus lies dormant in your nerves until it doesn't. Then it hurts.

MissMarple2

daddy,

All of us 5 kids had chicken pox at once. My mom told us to pick one place to scratch. That is why I have a scar in the center of my forehead where I could probably place a jewel.

We also all had the old-fashioned measles at the same time. We had to stay in the lower bunks of our bunkbeds (one at each end of 2 bunks - my brother wasn't born yet) which my mom draped in blankets to shade us from light. We couldn't read or watch TV - we played with pegboards that had cars and houses and trees.

No vaccines in those days. I did NOT get mumps, although 2 sisters and my brother did. Childhood illnesses were pretty common and the treatment was sort of pioneer-like.

Cocktail parties involve alcohol, plus some food--anything from some nuts in a bowl to a carving center--but NEVER a dinner plate. Shrimp frequently makes an appearance in these parts. Usually start after 5:30.

If there are dinner plates involved, you've been to a dinner party.
