OK Go – Skyscrapers – Official Video
How are all the fambly, Beo?
Weba great thank you 😉 I’ve got a small but contained cold and the kids are doing great in school. btw Junior was just enjoying Leo Sayer as I was playing some of his stuff. How’s your Junior and BabyGrand Jr?
Son is okay, mostly; he’s now engaged to his lady overseas. She plans to move here with her daughter. He took me to lunch yesterday for Thai food. Dayyyum it was good! Grandson is still down with mom and step-dad. We are hoping to get him up here NEXT summer, to stay.
How cool, I hope everything works out.
Thanks, Sis. So do I. He hasn’t had the best life either. I really like that woman, too. She’s a sweetheart all the way.
As long as Grandma gets her fair share is all that counts. I’d say the trip up north is the best thing for both of you.
Hi, msb. Congrats to your son.
Hope plans work out with your grandson.
Thai is my favorite. Could live on phat thai.
Ooooh, now you’re talking my language! Thai Green Curry with anything is at the top of my list!
Absolutely. Peanut sauce makes even boring chicken taste good, as well.
You know it. Bangkok Red Curried Chicken is another fave. And satays!
When you guys come again- NOT IF!!!- 😀 We can go to the one here. It is SOOOOO good and only about 4 blocks from here. 😀
Oh, yes! You have a deal!
Hi, sweetie! I love it too. I love almost all ethnic food. “American” food got old for me long ago. I need variety in my diet! Yeah- pad thai and satay, both with chicken. I can’t have shrimp anymore. I developed an allergy to it. 😦 I love to make Indian style food too. Yellow and green curries- YOMMM!
“In the dead of night before the shutdown, the Republicans forced through a rule change, one which effectively handed over control of the government over to one man, Eric Cantor”
Yep. That one is a shitweasel from the word go. How I loathe these people! Talk about chutzpah and hubris!
I really do hate them, and I hate hating anyone, but they are just vile.
I saw that and I’m still seething. How in the hell do they think this is going to work for them, unless they’re serious about a coup?
Sigh…. It seems like a coup to me.
It sure does.
Bet Texas sure is glad the shutdown has closed the CDC
Typhus returns in Texas
Oh, yeah…. no big surprise, huh! The sad thing is that the poor and innocent will be the ones to sicken and die. FUCKING ASSHOLES! I hope it gets Perry!
They wanted gummint hands off of their healthcare. Let’s see how this is working for them.
+ X2 what Barb said!
They remind me of defiant teenagers, trying to run away from home, with NO frickin’ idea what’s really in store for them. That’s not a good thing for supposed “leaders.”
They have, and had, no intentions of being “leaders”. They’re just the corporate scouts, setting it up for the Baining of the country.
Except Cruz- I think he’s really delusional. His facial expressions and things I read that he says are reminding me more and more of Caligula. That guy is seriously TWISTED.
Cruz is like OJ looking for the real killers.
OY! LOL- that’s pretty much it!
Just put him on the Realm virtual couch the other night. I would only go after politicians in the closet if they go against all of our interests including their own. I couldn’t figure him out at first, but after seeing his fire and brimstone father and watching him on Crossfire, I’ve concluded that he’s repressing his strongest drive…..other than just being an asshole.
Cruz’ father is a minister now as a way to make amends because he is suffering from the extreme guilt of having supported Castro in his early rise to power. He has “beatin” the anti-Castro anti-big government, anti-socialism thing into his son Rafael who now carries the torch for his father.
but you’re right, he is an asshole.
and a smug one at that.
x4 Those are the bastids I was talking about.
The GOP would like to think of themselves as using chemo where necessary, while they’re really opening a big ass can of typhoid. They’d best get ready for the industrial can O WhoopAss next election.
I’m getting a mental picture of the House, with all those mofos running out of it, shouting “Raid!!!” like in the bug commercials! 😉
If only… 😐
I hope you are right Beo, its the only way these nutz will learn!
I tot I saw a puddy tat! Hi, Fi! Snuck in, did ya? 😀

Nice work, major!
Wow Major, pretty talented. I need to do something like that where I can get totally immersed in what I’m doing. Like a form of meditation.
Thank you all!!!,,,and yes wav,,it is good therapy for me
Wow!! Interception Jags ! 59 yd run and score!! YAY! Lost 2 pt tho but 12-14 Denver – halftime now!
Hi, girl! I’m about to bail out, have some lunch, and resume the unearthing of this room, so I can live in it. Glad you’re having fun with the game!
Hey there, Sis! A nice distraction. 🙂 Good to see you!
Hello Ricki Lee, sounds like you’re enjoying yourself.
Hiya, Beo! Still hoping the predicted 28 pt spread won’t happen. Hope you and family are doing well?!
When you have a few minutes, this stuff is a TRIP. It’s beautiful, and a little creepy, but so different! I think I really like the finished product- at least to look at.
Saving this for later, I saw some stills. Thanks!
Wow. Not sure how to describe this….
beautiful doesn’t quite capture it.
Kinda hard to wrap you head around. How do they think of this ? Pretty amazing if you ask me.
Okay- hunger is setting in pretty seriously, and I must get back to work in here. See you guys later, I hope!
Later, Sis. I have to go rattle some pots and pans, too.
Catch everyone later.
Bye MsB, I’ve gotta take a break too. Me circulation demands it. See you soon
Good to see you, as always, msb.
Hope to see you later! I’m off to work myself in a bit.
This is why the GOP will NOT be voted out of the House in 2014
Why is congressman Howard Coble R-N.C. (see below) still in office after 13 elections ? We need term limits. Throw these bums out.
MOUNT AIRY, N.C the Sixth Congressional District.
Pundits and political analysts have long bemoaned the seemingly intractable differences between the two parties, exacerbated by gerrymandering, which preserves safe House seats so they remain uncontested. But to understand why members of Congress seem hellbent on digging in their heels, it’s instructive to observe how their own constituents have also dug in their heels, something you can do well from a place like Mount Airy, nestled in North Carolina’s very red Sixth Congressional District.
In the Sixth District, while constituents are frustrated with Washington, they are more or less in sync with their congressman,
**** Republican Howard Coble, who has been serving in the House since 1985 and has won his last 13 elections with more than 60 percent of the vote. ****
They are unlikely to throw him out of office anytime soon, even if he voted against a “clean” spending bill that would have funded the government and if he cosigned the letter that urged attaching a budget to defunding the ACA.
Phil Berger Jr., district attorney in neighboring Rockingham County, who pays close attention to politics and is a loyal GOP voter, is thrilled that House Republicans, like Coble, are standing resolute for a change.
Berger dismissed the notion that the bruising budget and debt ceiling fights are taking their toll on the party that vowed to rehabilitate its image after the losses of the 2012 election.
“The Republicans cannot survive as Democrat-lite,” he said. “The face-lift that’s needed for the Republican Party is more conservatives who are willing to speak up and not fall prey to the inside-the-Beltway echo chamber.”
That synergy of views makes it unlikely that Coble or any of the other conservatives driving the House GOP strategy will cave to mounting political pressure across the country.
Some say creative redistricting is at fault. Indeed, to preserve the maximum number of “safe” House seats, state lawmakers cut a snakelike sliver out of the Sixth District to exclude chunks of Democratic-leaning urban Greensboro and added it to the district of Democratic Rep. Mel Watts, another longtime incumbent.
Waverly, the GOP campaigned long to get Willie Brown out and we got term limits in California thanks to them, but just as we all predicted, staff members and politicians from other offices in both parties just took their places. It was the system and money all along. Term limits actually would get rid of the Bernie Sanders and Alan Graysons and take away our right to vote for them and allow the right to vote for the same kind of people that screw with the system in the first place. Since the moneyed interests can’t be stopped, we can only strive for ideas and ingenuity in our representatives if they’re beholden to big interests, or at least aren’t going to fight them. Whether it’s global thinking with trade and finance, or just what we want our nation to look like physically and socially, it’s up to bright, driven people with ideas other than NO NO NO NO NO NO NO, or perpetuating a virtually broken system with little to add.
Thank Beo, you’re right of course. We need some fresh ideas. What then must we do. Hmmmm.
As much as I’d like to see Africa here is yet another reason to not go (aside from the large number of venomous and poisonous things and diseases),
Jack this is for you yo. Oh this is a real treat today, shuttle Atlantis takeoff 2006,
