WANT

Threadkiller

My mom was watching local news as they went on and on about "beto" orouke. She called to ask me about him (don't worry, she's a Trump gal).

I explained the whole fake-mexican scam and his name actually is Robert.

This got me wondering. Did he legally add "beto" to his given birth certificate name? If not, is "beto," with or without the quotation marks what has been printed on the Texas ballots. I hope some Texas JOMers can weigh in on this.

If quoted nic-names are allowed how about Donald "Greatest Economy" Trump or Donald "Stable Genius" Trump etc?

California is worried about tax returns to get on its ballot. The rest of the country should concentrate on having only legal names on the ballot.

"Weren't you just doing a clutch or something on it?"

No.

Two years ago, it started blowing white smoke.

'Push mowed' it all 2017.

2018, I payed a buddy of Better Half's to check it out and he replace the head gasket.

Revolutionized my mowing experience last year.

Started mowing again last month. A wrinkle on my mowing duties from 2018 is that my MOM moved into a brand new home about 400 footsteps from my home.

There is an unbuildable 1/5 of an acre on the corner from her and the developer doesn't maintain it. She complains about it being overgrown. She won't say it, but I drive my John Deere LT160 (which she gave me) down there and mow it.

Last weekend, I'm mowing the vacant and smoke starts coming off the unit. I assumed it was the head gasket again.

Until my legs got host and I realized the deck was on fire.

Still runs like a top but, as soon as I engage the blades, the engine dies.

2019 is the year of Paying Down Debt, the Middle child in 2020 so I gotta get in shape to pay to pay college.

This means the 2019 is the year of 'Push Mowing',

It'll be good for the 15 year old boy as well

Jane,

Megan seems to be a well-rounded and interesting girl. I am not understanding how you know her. Is she a relative of Amy's? (DOn't get offended. I sometimes have trouble remembering all the names.)

lyle

I’m sorry, who is Megan? A JOM progeny?

TK, I'll see your ZZ Top and raise you one cut of what I've been listening (and jamming) to.

Jane,
She appears to be a fantastic kid with a spectacular future. I enjoy seeing/reading about young adults succeeding. Keep us updated.

Hmmmm... I swear I remember you working on a Snapper.

Probably the beer.

Megan is Amy’s daughter MM. she was born the year we started working together. Amy is in the pix.

Jane, that was a public website. No problem posting it. Thank you for doing so.

So Amy was your law partner?

TK, I gotta a Snapper.

I'll never get rid of it.

My Dad gave it to me.

Engine runs like a top.

It won't move.

My plan for this year was:

Me an The Boy would mow my yards and Mom's.

Now I'm 'push mowing' my yard.

Amy was my partner. Sorry, anyone who has visited me has met them. Mary, her wife is a cardiologist and Hailey is the animal whisperer.

Jane,

Thanks! She seems like a super-cool kid. Very impressive resume!

I have grandkids I am proud of but I often forget to tell people who they are when I name them in a post.
I assume the same thing happens to you.

I love to read about young people who have their acts together and have a list of accomplishments. I feel the same way following Jack's son Frederick.

Narciso79

Wonderful Jane for her.

Captain Hate

There are some very sick people out there:

The hashtag “Rape Melania” trended on Twitter, being used more than 32,000 times. Were any of those 32,000 banned from Twitter?

Narciso79

Yes Hamas and Hezbollah camt complain, oops.

Jack is Back!

Megan is right to have a resume like that and keep it up to date. Frederick has the same but doesn't post it on his website which he hasn't updated in years. Too busy with school and his sports. Still waiting to hear from him about the regatta today. 24 schools in the rain rowing 1500 meters in over 60 heats. Then he has to wake up tomorrow for a full day of school.

Dems’ Latest Tinfoil Hattery: Republicans Are Baiting Us To Impeach Trump

House Democratic leaders facing liberal calls for impeaching President Trump are confronting increasing pressure from an unlikely faction: Republicans who appear eager to goad them into it.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and her leadership team have repeatedly sought to defuse the appeals for impeachment hearings, deeming them premature, and some Democrats sense the Republicans are setting a political trap to boost their ally in the White House.

But recent stonewalling actions by the administration have only fueled the liberal push to oust the president, complicating leadership efforts to keep a lid on the campaign.

GOP leaders know impeachment divides Democrats and see a clear political advantage in promoting the debate. The Republicans’ campaign arm is steadily blasting emails linking moderate Democrats in swing districts to the impeachment effort. And a growing number of GOP lawmakers are all but daring Democratic leaders to launch the process while it remains unpopular with voters — a strategy not overlooked by top Democrats vowing to resist the bait.

“They would love to drive this to an impeachment because they think it will be their political salvation,” Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.), a Judiciary Committee member, said of Republicans.

“If we get there, we will get there on our own time and our own way. We’re not going to be baited into it,” Raskin said.

Yes to the French drain. Depending on how wide the swamp is, you might want to install several and side by side all the piping in one trench.

Something like above but with the drains + lined up one behind the other and all the drains exiting in the same location.

We had about a 25 foot long area that liked to pool, and we put in two and ran the pipes next to each other and exited them with one opening at the bottom of a hill.

I had that earlier, Maltese politics are fairly left, proximity to Libya might have something to do with it.

My riffs consist of Chet Atkins solo guitar arrangements of Scott Joplin’s The Entertainer and one of the most beautiful pieces ever written, his Solace.

whether they all meant to hide these connections--and I think they did--everything's being exposed. It may explain why western intelligence has largely been such a failure. It's in the hands of partisan nitwits.

I'm sitting here wondering why the classical guitar in my lap won't play that song, lyle... 😜

It’s not for casual guitarist, Beasts. That particular fingering was not from the notation I learned 40 years ago from the sheet music but pretty close. Still wonderful. Thanks, again.

Jane - I really enjoyed looking at Megan's website and I know you are proud of her. She is a very accomplished and well-rounded young lady.

I think it encourages us all to see a different view of today's youth than what we often see and hear through the media. So, everyone keep posting, please!

Well they wouldn't hire me, and they did Mary larf.

MissMarple2

Momto2, Jane, Jack,

I agree. I really enjoy reading about these kids for the exact same reason.

Keep posting about their accomplishments!

Beasts of England

I hadn't paid much attention to the media involvement in this scandal - other than their passive role as lefty cheerleaders - but it's looking like it was much more than that.

If true, I wonder how they could be held accountable, considering the wide and appropriate latitude afforded by the first amendment. Perhaps the Espionage Act?

OB-GYN who delivered over 2,500 Babies explains how NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s celebrated new abortion law isn’t about women’s healthcare at all and it’s only about killing babies. In other words, only a homicidal maniac would enact or even support such a law.

For those who like flying, there's been a B-17 and a P-51 from the Collings Foundation flying over my house all weekend, along with static displays of a B-24, B-25, and P-40. All great WWII warbirds. The sound of freedom from the 40's.

My dad flew 25 missions as a co-pilot in B-24's from Nov 43 to May 44 with missions to Berlin and other Axis targets. He was also on the mission that accidentally bombed Nijmegen in the Netherlands. He never spoke of it, but research showed his aircraft was on that mission. War was hell back then, just as it can be now.
