have you seen the movie Whistleblower about the the UN and human trafficing?
Are you still having weeks on end of Tule fog this time of year? When we lived back behind you at the end of the Golden Chain highway the only thing that cured SAD was a sitdown visit to Asilomar Beach. Better fuel up the Volvo.
Seattle was the one city that I really felt uncomfortable and unsafe. I have been in many cities in this country at all different hours and did not feel the same as I did in Seattle.
gangs of teenagers asking for money where ever I went. people cheering when a cop got hit with a car.
so for them to make a law that says cops can go into the homes of law abiding citizens because they have legal guns is pretty stupid and sick
The police in my town are only 90 days away from using unmanned drones in their “activities”. I guess it’s to “observe” and “deter crime”. Yes, it has begun.
Sometimes I want to post at TCH, like today, but I’m definitely not an A-lister here. I know Myiq has his ups and downs, but I don’t want to step on his toes either. I’m on Team Underweather, just send me a sign
You’re on my A-List! Myiq is seriously the most laid back blogmaster I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. Just do it whenever.
That sound you hear is the flap, flap, flap of TV commercial dollars making their getaway from the Baldwin household.
I am all in favor of rape whistles. It's handy to let the coroner's wagon know where to pick up the body of the guy who tried to rape me.— FormerDeminTX (F) (@FormerDeminTX) February 19, 2013
Belatedly discovered have been a “feminist” for years. Girl Scout cookie order arrived today. Didn’t realize it was this easy.
You think you’re having a bad day, trying to get my Amtrak tix printed by next, uh, Weds. My printer broke down, so sent out an *alarm* to a neighbor’s son with deliver my tix and there’s a Starbucks treat for you….for the past 2 hours, he’s trying to cyber fix my printer, even after I told him I need ink! JUST PRINT MY TIX! d’OH. He’ll probably show up here at 3 a.m. with new ink cartidges. I am so f****ked.
where are you going on your trip??
word of advise. sit on the opposite side of the opposing track. do not sit over the wheels.
Helen, after my last flight from SF bay area to Central west PA via United Airlines, I swore to NEVER FLY AGAIN.
Flight from hell. over crowded, Less personal space than it was just 8 months ago and no air in the little blowers. Babies cried all night long ( overnighter) Too much carry on luggage cause they charge to check a bag.
It was the pits.
I am going by Amtrak next time.
Thanks for the tips above. Got more?
are you taking #6 the California Zepher to Chicago? If so when you go over the rockies you will be so high you will be above the rainbow. make sure you sit in the dorm car for that part of the ride. I have pictures of that. It is just beautiful
then the capitol limited from chicago to Pittsburgh?? ok but not as scenic.
let me know which trains you will use.
helen, it’s a brand new station in Norfolk, VA, thought I’d throw them support, but they don’t have a “station”, and my online reservation only said *print*, my printer died Still working with the kid next door, like working with Sheldon Cooper…lol.
sorry are you going on the Capitol LImited? where are you going to from Norfolk?
helen, to NYP. Been doing this since ’91. Amtrak always zapped me snail mail tix within a couple of days, but now they said “print” and I failed. Now panicked.
I loved Norfolk when I lived there. I’m an ODU grad. I hope you have better luck with the tickets very soon.
They have very nice machines that print them out at the station. Very easy and free ink and paper
They promise this by next year, I’m in new station coming in the future hell
Hey, Reggie Love deserves a Halloween date, albeit belated.
On Wednesday I am going to the camel races in Indio California. If i can get someone to show me how to post the pictures i will do so.
Old stomping grounds! Camels used to get loose at night and galloop past our office. Spelling intentional. What fun! Enjoy a Date Shake while there.
It is something I have wanted to do since I moved here. I usually forget about it until it is too late. not this year
if any of you ever get the chance to go to a Donkey Baseball game do so. My late nephew was a volunteer fireman. they used to have these games as fund raisers. take extra panties because you will laugh so hard you will need them.
I played donkey basketball for charity once. What the audience doesn’t know is that the donkeys are trained to do certain things. One kicks, one drops fecal matter the rider has to clean up, etc., but one donkey is trained to deliver its rider directly under the hoop. It was a lot of fun.
what a great fun way to raise funds. the whole family can laugh together.
How did you get through the game without laughing so hard you could not move?
