Ditto…amazing 40 year career, hope to hear more of her.
Good one bebe. Love Nat King Cole.
Hooray!..Hiya Realmsters!–Happy Holidays!!..We’re heading to DD for turkey tomorrow night–she missed TG ‘cuz birthing Goldens, so… Anyway, we’re at the tail end of 2-3″ of fluffy rain which the JD is going to have fun with, plus Mrs4E says not to touch the mower deck ’til after xmas, eh?..’puters were having trouble for a while–seems okay now….8-)
Goes naturally with his schoolyard-bully attitude bebe.
What a trouble we are in fancy.
Indeed bebe. I wish I understood why the Trump voters didn’t see what an evil person he is. 😦
What does it say about his voters. For Trump is all a winning twitter game.
As Hill said. Their “Deplorables” I agree.
Very nice Tio.
I made myself a “Do not touch ’til SAT” sign….8-)
President-elect Donald Trump on Friday shared a letter he received from Russian President Vladimir Putin, who urged the next president “to take real steps to restore the framework of bilateral cooperation” while offering Trump his “warmest Christmas and New Year greetings.”
“A very nice letter from Vladimir Putin; his thoughts are so correct,” Trump said in a statement. “I hope both sides are able to live up to these thoughts, and we do not have to travel an alternate path.”
I think Putin is playing games with Trump. He’s going to want something.
Oh my 🙂
I think Putin wants to prevent the Orange menace from Nuking Russia.
All he has to do is keep giving Trump compliments. Keeps him happy Jack.
John was one of the first artists rumored to be performing, a rumor started by the Trump transition team’s very own Anthony Scaramucci.
“This will be the first American president in U.S. history that enters the White House with a pro-gay-rights stance,” Scaramucci told BBC. “Elton John is going to be doing our concert on the mall for the inauguration.”
Straight-forward, declarative, there wasn’t a single minced word in Scaramucci’s statement. There wasn’t any in John’s publicist Fran Curtis’ response in a statement to the New York Times: “Incorrect. He will NOT be performing
I think he booked this guy.
HA! He’s way too good for Trump.
Good looking guy. 😛
She’s very lucky there were professionals onboard.
Carrie Fisher ‘out of emergency’ after reported heart attack on flight to LA https://www.theguardian.com/culture/2016/dec/23/carrie-fisher-heart-attack-london-la-flight
“At 12.11pm the Los Angeles fire department responded to LAX airport for a patient in cardiac arrest.”
“She wasn’t breathing for 10 minutes or so. They were administering CPR up until we landed.
“So many thanks to the United flight crew who jumped into action, and the awesome doctor and nurse passengers who helped.”
Lucky indeed! 10 Minutes sheesh, I hope she does not suffer complications.
2016 can eff off as far as I’m concerned.
I’m with you Darth but……..
Sad it comes to that.
Yes Jack. Someone needs to tell Trump “One President at a Time”
AMEN to that!!!
I hope he got me a pony! 😀
Love that sweater big guy!
Why, thank you! (blush) Happy Holidays!
Not too realistic. There should be at least a couple of dead bodies.
Trump is off to a roaring start.Talk loosely about nukes,interfere with the US policy on Israel.Can you imagine what will happen when he actually takes power?
I can imagine X. That’s what scares me.
I don’t have to imagine, he WILL!
Makes my head hurt in anticipation!
Apologies if anyone has already posted this and I missed it. An outstanding read.
This Political Theorist Predicted the Rise of Trumpism. His Name Was Hunter S. Thompson. https://www.thenation.com/article/this-political-theorist-predicted-the-rise-of-trumpism-his-name-was-hunter-s-thompson/
“Most people read Hell’s Angels for the lurid stories of sex and drugs. But that misses the point entirely. What’s truly shocking about reading the book today is how well Thompson foresaw the retaliatory, right-wing politics that now goes by the name of Trumpism. After following the motorcycle guys around for months, Thompson concluded that the most striking thing about them was not their hedonism but their “ethic of total retaliation” against a technologically advanced and economically changing America in which they felt they’d been counted out and left behind. Thompson saw the appeal of that retaliatory ethic. He claimed that a small part of every human being longs to burn it all down, especially when faced with great and impersonal powers that seem hostile to your very existence. In the United States, a place of ever greater and more impersonal powers, the ethic of total retaliation was likely to catch on.”
“What made that outcome almost certain, Thompson thought, was the obliviousness of Berkeley, California, types who, from the safety of their cocktail parties, imagined that they understood and represented the downtrodden.”

I wish Hunter was still alive. I’d love to hear his take on Trump Darth.
He’s not my generation, but irreverence is timeless. Fear and loathing in Las Vegas is one of my favorite books.
I moved to Colorado in 1972 and learned that HST had just narrowly missed being elected Sheriff of Aspen. Figured that was good enough for me. Still here.
Ha! No kidding? That would have been a trip.
I saw the movie Darth. I enjoyed it.
Never heard of that guy!
I had, but it got lost in the shuffle. I’m so glad you reposted it! Thanks!!
Sorry! A little birdie was telling me I had seen this somewhere but wasn’t sure. I just happened upon it. A great article.
Never sorry – good job!!
Totally not staged and absolutely spontaneous, I’m sure.
Barack Obama pranked by White House staff over snowman fears http://www.independent.co.uk/news/people/barack-obama-prank-white-house-snowman-fear-phobia-instagram-photos-a7490796.html
That is funny Darth. His staff had fun. 😀
The jaws theme would make this perfect.
They tell me snowmen have snow balls.
Hey check your email some time this century!
Is there a present there? You shouldn’t have! 😀
You get coal sprinkled with black truffle.
70 BUCKS for one fungi!
HA! So true!
FK how was the new Doc?
I liked him Jack. He’s been around here a while so won’t be leaving. He’s also our corner.
I received a letter, our hospital is filing bankruptcy. They want to know if I had an injury or hurt during treatment. I’m trying to think of something worth some money but no they took good care of me. Black and blue arms from blood draws. 😀 I had heard someone bought them.
Good you and your neighbors deserve a good DOC, too bad about the Hospital, you need stability. What is wrong with you….are you DAFT?Listen you’re a damn AMERICAN and as such you are supposed to take part in ANY and EVERY bit of fraudulent litigation—claim they gave you an unwanted sex change 😀
HA! You bad Jack!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Over the past several years, the hospital has faced increased competition, significant debt and the compounding effects of health care reform, according to the statement. In order to combat these challenges and ensure long-term success as a full-service, acute-care hospital, it was determined that a strategic combination with a larger, nationally recognized health care provider was necessary
Not uncommon, a lot of shifty stuff has happened here in the city with the hospitals. Place that were good and accessible to all restructure and became elitists hospitals.
They must be mis-manageing the hospital. It’s been here since I can remember.
I’ve been thinking Jack. My back pain is due to a fall out of their bed.
BINGO! I saw when you fell out of their rickety beds and were kicked by a nurse.
She was a nasty one, that nurse Jack.
So we’re in agreement? 2016 a Dickish year?
I agree Jack but am afraid 2017 may be worst. 😦
DUDE WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN HIDING?!
Dickish? 2016 was a fister, sans lube…………………
Absofriggenlutely and let’s face it. Not likely to get better!
For the last sixty four years the US army has been playing Santa Claus to some 20,000 people inhabiting dozens of tiny Micronesian islands spread across a vast area in the western Pacific Ocean. Each year in December, these islanders receive all sorts of gifts and useful supplies packed in approximately a hundred crates and dropped gently to earth on green military parachutes. Known as Operation Christmas Drop, this effort on the part of the United States Air Force has been called the “longest running humanitarian mission in the world.”
Operation Christmas Drop has its roots to the Christmas of 1952, when the crew of an Air Force B-29 aircraft, flying a mission to the south of Guam, saw some of the islanders waving at them. In the spirit of the season, the crew gathered some items they had on the plane, placed them in a container, attached a parachute and dropped the bundle to the islanders below.
Too bad the Commander-in-Chief ( seriously, not an attack on your support of the guy just bringing up relevant info that gives my position on the guy some merit) Betrayed people that he promised to help become Americans, IMHO they are better off being sovereign, and he failed to ELIMINATE the racist INSULAR CASES that has labeled human beings as animals.
Washington (CNN) — American Samoans have no automatic claim to U.S. citizenship by birth despite living in a U.S. territory, according to a move by the Supreme Court on Monday.
US Supreme Court Rejects Appeal to Give American Samoans Birthright Citizenship
Coastline of American Samoa. (Wikipedia)
(CNSNews.com) — The U.S. Supreme Court announced Monday that it will not hear the appeal of five American Samoans, including three U.S. military veterans, who believe they are entitled to birthright citizenship.
Section 308 of the Immigration and Nationality Act states that “a person born in an outlying possession of the United States on or after the date of formal acquisition of such possession” is a U.S. national, not a citizen.
The Citadelle Laferrière, located on top of a mountain in northern Haiti, is one of the largest fortresses in the Americas. The Citadel was built by Henri Christophe, who played a key role in the Haitian Revolution that eventually led to the country gaining independence from France in 1804. The fortress was built immediately after the revolution, between 1805 and 1820, and was part of a system of fortification designed to resist any attempt by the French to recapture the newly independent nation of Haiti.
The Citadel was built several miles inland atop a 3,000 feet-tall mountain called Bonnet a L’Eveque, 17 miles south of the city of Cap-Haïtien. From the fortress, one can see all the way to the Atlantic coast, and on clear days, you can even glimpse the eastern coast of Cuba, located some 90 miles away.
Impressive. I have never seen so much munitions in their original state. Kinda makes me want to sneak it and destroy Darth little death star.
Sure to be a top notch operation
You jest sir but….
