@ Jack..it would be great if Mr. Grump joins us in here !!!
I so admire him for his honest posts.
Agreed, Gypsy, he’d be a GREAT addition here at Jack’s!!
I have added respect for him, someone posting needs to get him over here..;)
This is so tragic it’s not even believable.
Well, it’s been nice knowin’ you all … thanks for all the fish! http://www.examiner.com/article/supervolcano-beneath-yellowstone-park-caldera-volcano-larger-than-expected
I’ve read about that before, jeabus if that goes up!
We’d be like, “did you hear somethi…..?” You’d be like, “the horror! The horror!!”
But we’d probably be like,”That Yellowstone ceramic collectors plate just shot up $10 on eBay!” 😉
Should bought the spoon, up 50$
(snaps fingers) Dang, knew I shoulda got the set!
Now it’s even bigger than it was when they discovered it was bigger than it was back in the ’70s!
Looks like a hole in the Earth that goes all the way down to that giant Steelie at the core!
It’s kinda scary.
First, HP blows up, now we gotta worry about Jellystone!!
Thanks, Haruko!! 🙂 😦
Someone better notify Yogi it’s time to find a new picnic basket haunt.
Booboo is on it!
I loved those two, guess I still do.
Hmmm, better move the timetable up on that bucket list.
More highly disturbing excerpts from the 1994 Vanity Fair exposé of the Huffingtons:
In Paris in the late 70s, Arianna Stassinopoulos was ordained a minister in the Church of the Movement of Spiritual Inner Awareness. In 1984 she was baptized in the river Jordan. M.S.I.A. is a New Age church to its followers but a mind-manipulating cult to many of those who have left it. In her ordination, Arianna, who attained the highest level of secret initiation, “Soul Initiate,” swore devotion to a curious divinity. The document of ordination reads: “We do this through the order of the Melchizedek Priesthood, the Office of the Christ, the Mystical Traveler, Preceptor Consciousness, and into God. This delineates for you the divine line of authority.”
M.S.I.A. ministers believe that the Mystical Traveler, the chosen one of God on earth at any given time, is now John-Roger, the founder of M.S.I.A. They believe that the Preceptor Consciousness, which is embodied on the planet only every 25,000 years and is therefore higher than Christ, is personified by John-Roger. Soul Initiates such as Arianna are required to pray by chanting the secret names of God that John-Roger gives them. They either follow the rules or renounce the ministry, which is fully accredited in California and which allows them to perform weddings and baptismal ceremonies. Arianna Huffington, who has followed the diminutive John-Roger all over the world for two decades, has never renounced her ministry. She told me, “That’s not necessary. Because to me a ministry is something of being of service . . . not about performing baptisms and weddings.” When I asked Arianna if she still chants the names of God that John-Roger gave her—a dead-bang giveaway, according to ex-M.S.I.A. members, as to whether or not someone still believes—she replied, “These are sacred questions . . . I pray. I’m not going to discuss how I pray.” http://www.vanityfair.com/culture/features/1994/11/huffington-199411?printable=true
Unfreakin’ believable !!!
When I was graduating from grad school, she was becoming a cult leader. Sheeeeeesh. Great entry on the old resume there Arianna.
I wonder if her cult taught mind control techniques ?
Is there anything in there about Youth With a Mission?
don’t recall. It’s a six or seven page article.
It’s a cult she was supposedly affiliated with.
Thanks, I’ll check it out.
And someone once spread a rumour for some MYSTIFYING reason that *I* was a member of the same cult.
Why on earth would anyone think you were a member of her insanely fascist cult ? simply beyond mystifying !
Don’t have a clue where they got that idea in their head.
Ok.She’s a weirdo.
More than that. She’s freakin’ Michele Bachmann scary.
At least Bachmann is honest about who she is.
Thanks for sharing all of your research. What an awful woman…………………..
I had know idea how deep her depravity went. I remembered when some very intelligent and worldly friends of mine of cautioned me about getting to involved with her website. I asked why not ??? They just shrugged and gave me that “you will find out eventually” look.
Looks like we all know now. Geez………….
I would like to see her staked out in the desert naked with Google Earth focused on her for all the world to see. 😈
I’m liking the way you think!
Drizzle on a little honey, add an ant hill and you’ve got a party!!!!!
I was thinking ant hill might be too cruel, but why not 😉
Bed time this side of the pond, goodnight all.
Hello, Fi and good night. Have not received you package yet but probably shortly.
Good night Fi, sweet dreams.
Sweet Dreams, Fi.
Good night, Fi. I hope you get a good night’s sleep.
-14 two weeks ago, +50 today. I blame the Yellowstone Supervolcano.
If that thing ever blows we’re screwed!
It’s like an asteroid, can’t do anything about it, might as well not worry about it.
I agree, Haruko. The only sane option.
7 posts so far on Jack’s “AOLana’s War On Anonymity” thread.
Come on, folks, let’s really help Cap’n Jack big time with his anti-HP-FB news group campaign! 🙂
Doesn’t have to be long – just a few short and sweet sentences will make a great impact.
Our chance to give back to our fearless leader! 🙂
(Remember…every big movement started out as a tiny movement. :))
[NOTE to Jack: Please delete this post over on the AOLana thread as I mistakenly posted it there instead of here. I had two tabs open. Sorry!]
I spent half an hour writing mine this morning.
🙂 Thanks, Haruko!!!
So wave calls you James ? Are you ?
Our Artist is James as well,. lol..
I think s/he confused me with him. LOL
I’m Gina. 🙂
Hahaha…big jump from James to Gina..James is a man’s name normally, Gina is a woman’s name.
Then there is Conyer who Jade, how interesting !
Our dear wave sometimes comes as a man then a woman.
This is hilarious..!!!
Never a dull moment in The Realm! LOL
Yeah, Coinyer totally flabbergasted me with “Jade”. LOL 🙂 But I think it’s still a fake name, knowing Coinyer.
What a faker…still remember we posted page after page to bring him / her back when C was sulking..
good post thx.
I’m still ruminating on the lies and deceit before I put what I want to say into words 😈
It’s ALOT to digest, I know, Wave!
I’ve been buying Tums and Prilosec in bulk.
Haruko, outfit number two, please.
Thank you! Everyone else is voting for outfit No. 1!
They have no fashion sense. Outfit two combines tradition with smokin’ hawt. You’ll be the center of attention.
It’s all about colour coordination.
PS … like I have the nerve to dress like that in real life! 😆

It’s not some kind of gear-shift on your locomotion train!
That is hysterical. Thanks for putting that up there Cobalt. She had her accent down perfect.
Locomotion trains don’t have gear-shifts!
Locomotive trains don’t, but I think she means something else with locomotion. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C5OoQadZTPk
I enjoyed the Desolation of Smaug, no matter how hard the dumb ass IMAX theater tried to wreck it for me. I’d looked at the weekend showtimes which showed the earliest matinee at 11:30 am. I bought a ticket about 11:10 and the box office guy didn’t say a word the movie began at 9:15 am. So I saw the last hour of the movie, then had more than a half hour wait before the previews began (about a half hhour of those) then get the movie to start again. What kind of stupid theater has a 9 in the morning movie?
Bib, how nice to see you. Sorry you had so much trouble at the theater 😦
Hi, what else is going on in your world today ? 🙂
not much… what’s going on in your world?
snow tonight and tomorrow, but it may warm up on Wed. Currently I’m putting something together for Jack’s AOLanna page. Do you know about that ?
We’re seeing it tomorrow.
Oh, this is bloody hiliarious!! Some Tea Party group stole a conservative image from Bioshock Infinite to use on their Website. I guess they never played the game, where the conservatives are xenophobic, racist and fascist!
Speaking the the tea party, today is the 240 anniversary of the REAL TEA PARTY!
It’s dropping to two degrees here tonight! Plus another four inches of snow tomorrow.
Just a guess but it should warmer for you on Thurs 🙂
Pope Francis Responds to Rush Limbaugh’s “Marxist” Charges;
If Francis really wants to mess with him, he should have said, “that’s OK, Rush, Jesus forgives you.”
A literal holiday.
More on Arianna’s madcap cult membership (from the 1994 Vanity Fair exposé)
John-Roger has told his followers that they have the power to change weather patterns and dismantle nuclear weapons. Yet Arianna has always defended him, though now she consistently minimizes how close they have been and insists, in interviews about John-Roger’s multimillion-dollar empire, there is “nothing that you join.”
“Of course there’s something to join. You have to enroll in the discourses in order to be an initiate of the Traveler,” says Susan Roberts. “She’s a very lying woman.” Another ex-follower, Dodie Brady, who participated in more than a dozen M.S.I.A.-sponsored events with Arianna on three continents and who witnessed her baptism in the Holy Land, agrees. “When we were in it, we all considered it our church. I don’t know why Arianna is lying about it.”
Now that Arianna is courting Christian conservatives, touting her Greek Orthodox religion, and appearing with televangelist Rober Schuller on his Sunday-morning show to extol her husband’s advocacy of prayer in the schools, her allegiance to John-Roger is definitely something to keep hidden. “If the Christian right knew what M.S.I.A. was about, ” says Dodie Brady, “they wouldn’t be endorsing Arianna and Michael Huffington.” http://www.vanityfair.com/culture/features/1994/11/huffington-199411?printable=true
It seems that she has worn many faces to accomplish her goals. Is there anyone she hasn’t used yet?
I’m thinkin’ not.
Hey, maybe next she’ll get a few of her old right wing buddies to build a site for her, pretend to be progressive to build up a vibrant comment community, not pay anyone to write anything, and then sell it for a handsome price while pretending it was never “left or right” in the first place while she kicks all of the people who made that site what it is to the curb! It could happen, you know.
Indeed, something to consider.
hello folks electricity went off for two hours ans now back…such is OH..no snow, no wind yet faulty equipment they say.
We need to get Boehner outta here.
