MM, yes, NASCAR is shuffling their schedule. The Daytona race that’s usually Independence Day weekend is being moved to September to make it more relevant to the NASCAR “playoffs”.

(FYI, it was never run Labor Day weekend. The Southern 500 is a NASCAR Labor Day weekend tradition.)

Jim Eagle

Is Cam Newton the most over-rated QB since Johnny Manzeil, who is selling auto insurance now. Wonder what Cam will end selling?

James D.

From which I learned that Google will not work with our military but WILL work with the CCP, which is closely connected to the Chinese military.

At what point are we allowed to use the word “treason” ?

Jane

Caro,

Did you get my email?

Jim Eagle

Whoa.

Stands in Carolina half empty for game with Rams. Goodell has a problem.

If the stands for a Skins game look like that then you have a national emergency.

Marlene

Jack,sounds like a fun trip. Maybe on the return trip next spring. We want to explore the VA and MD coasts. The return trip in the spring is usually more flexible.

Marlene, why would you be anywhere near Atlanta going from Maine to Florida???? Atlanta is 200+ miles inland.
There is nothing wrong with 95 once you get past Richmond.

I'll second JiB's proposal, or stop for the night up in Charlotte, rather than going all the way to Columbia that day--there are great restaurants here, our art museum downtown will help you kill a few afternoon hours if you get here early. We could meet for dinner!

anonamom

OOPs! No dinner--we aren't here then.

Just learned today ATT Uverse failed to secure Red Zone . Twitter is aflame! We've given them til Friday to do so, or we leave.
(We may leave anyway--Spectrum will give us everything we have now for $100 less a month)

Yay competition!

Jim Eagle

amom,

So that is the issue with red zone. Couldn’t get in either.

MissMarple2

What is Red Zone?

Marlene

Amom,we've been trying different routes each time we drive down. My brother lives in Winston-Salem,so we go thru the Carolinas and into Georgia to connect to I-75. We like to vary the scenery. I-95 is so boring. :) We aren't setting any speed records,that is for sure!

Jim Eagle

Red Zone is a feature on the NFL Network where they bring you every game that gets into the red zone (inside the defenses 20 yard line) but is usually more if there is a team on a march or upset in play.

Thomas Collins

Why is an Ivy League school playing Alabama on a Sunday afternoon? Oh, wait a minute. That's Dolphins-Ravens, you say? Never mind.

MissMarple2

Well, Jack, thanks for the explanation.

The reason I didn't know is because we don't have cable and I don't follow football much except for the Colts. LOL!

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

--(We may leave anyway--Spectrum will give us everything we have now for $100 less a month)--

I know a way you could save even more.

Thomas Collins

So the Patriots get Antonio Brown for short money (short for someone of Brown's talents), and are in a division with a team that could already have decided to go into the Sea World tank for the season? Goodell should investigate Belichick's moves to deflate the Pats' odds to win another Super Bowl! It's AB/Tankgate!

I have run across several posts of leftists who want to demonstrate and shut down Trump's New Mexico rally.


I already have seen one person on Twitter who says he won't go because his son wanted to go and he doesn't want him to get hurt.

In my opinion, they are trying to depress his crowds, which normally are at capacity at every venue he visits.

People need to be alert to all of these leftist shenanigans!

anonamom

Marlene, agree--I-95 is far from interesting!

On my first day as president, I will sign an executive order that puts a total moratorium on all new fossil fuel leases for drilling offshore and on public lands. And I will ban fracking—everywhere.

Banning Fracking everywhere probably won’t inspire many voters in western Pennsylvania or in the Scranton area. Two areas a Democrat must inspire voters in order to win. And a Democrat must win Pennsylvania, a Republican does not have to.

Jim Eagle

Let the Dems bury themselves. Talk about a suicide pact.

Jim Eagle

My Watterzoi is on low simmering. Using fresh caught cod with a nice fish broth. Lots of leek carrots, shallots and herbs. Then bring in the egg and cream mixture to round it up. One of the reasons eat well.

Jim Eagle

..one of the reasons Belgian’s eat well....

anonamom

JiB, Waaterzooi sounds scrumptious. I can't wait to make one.

anonamom

Totally keto too! ;-)
I LOVE leeks.

Jim Eagle

You got to feel sorry for a small market team like the Jags who were pre-season favorites to make it to the super bowl with Nick Foles as QB and a top defense. Then in the first game, Foles breaks his clavicle, and you know the rest of the story. Mahomes makes them pay.

It really is surprising how Brady has stayed so healthy. BB understands that you need above all to protect your no. 1 asset and have a threatening running game to keep everyone honest. Why the other coaches think a QB and fast WR's will win has always escaped me.

Jim Eagle

anonamom,

Mrs. JiB's family recipe:

Cut up 4 leeks, 2 carrots, 2 shallots, and 1/4 of celery root (not necessary). Melt 3 tsps of butter in a dutch oven. Add the mixture above. Then add 4 cups of fish broth (either homemade or store-bought) and a cup of white wine. Add some thyme, a bay leaf, some threads of saffron. Mix up 3 egg yolks and 1 1/4 cups heavy cream. Add some of the broth to easy it in and then add it to the broth mixture. Let it simmer until ready. A nice fresh baguette goes well with it.

Smaak lekker!

Jim Eagle

...Did I forget the fish? Of course i did. Chop up 2 lbs of cod or turbot or Hallock into 1 inch pieces. Add it to the broth before adding the egg/cream mixture. Cook about 10 minutes (poaching) then remove the fish and add the cream mixture. Whisk it all in, then re-add the fish. Cook on low until ready to devour.

anonamom

Thanks JiB Sounds even better than what I found online!
I'm recording it on one of my recipe cards right now!

Jim Eagle

amom,

Most of those online forget the way to add the egg/cream mixture and to retire the fish beforehand. Oh boy, when my MIL said she was having Waterzooi for dinner Sunday, all the kids and their families showed up:) I am talking in the 30's numbers.

MissMarple2

All of the above tweets concerning Ivanka in South America were retweeted by President Trump.

matt - deplore me if you must

That video of Ivanka dancing brought back fond memories of Cankles getting sh*tfaced and doing the Baby Hippo in South Africa, Colombia and elsewhere.

I believe the Secret Service used to call those the Hookers and Blow tours.

"Lush One is on the move. I repeat, Lush One is on the move".

Ivanka can actually keep rhythm and dance and looks great doing it.

Happy Birthday MM! many happy return!

Jim Eagle

Unfortunately, Ivanka's dance moves are overtaking by the vilest, unconscionable comments you could imagine as replies to the tweet. It really is a Dorsey endorsed sewer of leftist intellect (how can I even use that word).

MissMarple2

Jack,

I never read the replies to President Trump's tweets. The text ones I bring over here I do because you guys can avoid the replies.

The ones with pictures or videos, the only thing I can advise is to NOT scroll past the end of the video or picture. That way you can avoid the vile leftists.

I don't understand why they act like that. All they are doing is enraging Trump supporters, plus letting us know that if they get in power they will come after all of us. Awful, awful people!

Jim Eagle

Can't get Red Zone, so I am forced to watch the Giants being humbled by the Boys. What an awful Sunday! Skins lose to the Eagles. Jags lose their SB QB and lose to KC when they were to be the next big thing. I think I need to go back to golf, tennis, soccer, and rugby. They never let you down.
