    Lily’s favorite playthings are small electronic devices, like cell phones and remote controls.

    Thank you for the Lily pic – as soon as I saw it I smiled. I need that today!

    • cynic says:

      Moo too! and I love the pigtails!

    • piper says:

      Moi three – she’s a cutie with a smile that brighten everyone’s day. Keep the pictures coming.

    • Constance says:

      Lilly is such a doll! I love that the picture is a little blurry. It shows that she is a very busy little person. I love pictures of female people that show their personality and they are rare. Usually we are overwhelmed by media images that only photograph girls and women trying to conform to some standard. I’m always struck and disgusted how magazines do personality portraits of male celebrities but women are only photographed in their best attempt to conform to fashion/porno sex imagery. This is 2015! I am thankful for the “family checkout” stations in some grocery stores and always use them so I can avoid the visual pollution of media while shopping.

    Progs are cracking up. They’re beginning to sound like those malfunctioning robots with smoke coming out of their ears.

    If you are using a desktop (not a phone / tablet) check out the “covers” menu tab on my blog.
    Cool or too slow to load?

    I am trying to order through VM’s page on Amazon and am PARALYZED BY INDECISION. Any parents of Barbie lovers out there? I wanted to order a Barbie storage trolley (because the Barbie clutter is DRIVING ME NUTS), but there is no place to buy it that would be LESS than about $100 (for a product that is $30 if you buy it at Toys R Us in America). So I bought a $5 pink plastic box at Ikea and now I’m looking on Amazon for Barbie stickers to put on it.

    I feel like Robin Williams in Moscow on the Hudson. Barbie … Barbie!!! … BARBIE!!!!!!

    • piper says:

      So true and nothing will really change until terrorism occurs in gated and liberal communities then the screaming will begin. (Not anything that I want to happen but sadly a reality attack is the only way these liberals/progressives will see the world as it really is and stop bleating their utopian bull-sh*t which exists only in deluded minds.)

    I just found a cook book copy written in 1907. it is just so different from cooking today. example how to cook a bird with the feathers still on it. Things i never heard of to cook. How to serve a dinner. It has three sections for beginning, moderate and experienced cooks

    • helenk3 says:

      how to keep meat from flies

      put in thick paper or muslin bags, if the latter the meat should first be covered with straw.the sacking must be done early in the season before fly appears. muslin lets the air in and is better than paper

      I am reading this thing in amazement.

      1. Catch a chicken.
      2. Kill it.
      3. Clean and dress it.
      4. Cut it into pieces
      5 Build a fire in the stove.

    • Constance says:

      My God! I hate to think of the smell of cooking a a bird with the feathers still on. I hope they were planning to cook it outside!

    • votermom says:

      That sounds fascinating! I love old books like that – better than any history documentary.

      • Jadzia says:

        I LOVE old cookbooks. My aunt recently sent the “what do you want?” list from my dearly departed grandmother’s house, and those old cookbooks (country club cookbooks, in this case) were first on my list! I’m going to have 1980s Minnesota hot-dish recipes out the wazoo, i tell ya what.

        • leslie says:

          My best and most favorite spinach lasagna recipe comes from a “cooking in Minnesota” cookbook printed in the late 70’s. It is one of several cookbooks that I will never give up. So many good recipes in there.

    • Jadzia says:

      The last time I was at my mother in law’s house (like, 2 months ago), I came downstairs in the morning to find a dead bird (feathers and all, basically still warm) on the kitchen counter. Apparently it was a gift from a hunting neighbor. And a pretty good lunch.

    • 1539days says:

      I have an old (1960’s) home repair book. It explains things like septic tanks (which I have) and how to do other patch job home repairs that no book would dare tell you anymore out of fear of lawsuits.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I remember when you could repair your own car or take it to the guy at a garage. Now it’s almost impossible to avoid dealership repairs. Probably why so many people love the old classics though I don’t see how they pass state inspections with all the new fangled EPA rules.

        • 1539days says:

          I know a couple of really handy people who can do a lot of repairs with some ramps and a good set of tools. I actually need to get a code reader (like $50) that reads the engine light codes. You can look up what they mean online. Many chain shops go by those codes anyway.

          • swanspirit says:

            My son does those kinds of repairs to cars, and homes too. He does plumbing ,electric, construction, etc. He learned when he worked in his fathers constructions company. Unfortunately, for that same reason; he doesn’t mind doing individual home repairs, but he would never do that for a living . Cars he loves to work on.

    • cynic says:

      I collect old cook books, and one of interest, is Mary and Vincent Price’s ‘Come into the Kitchen Cook Book’, A collector’s treasure of America’s great recipes.

      It’s not that old, 1969, but I thought it was interesting that Vincent Price put out cookbooks, and this one is illustrated by Charles Wysocki. I love Wysocki jigsaw puzzles.

      • dm says:

        My husband brought that home from a yard sale…insisted I make a mocha cake from there for Thanksgiving…Much work, complicated recipe, tasted OK…I was expecting much better.

        • cynic says:

          Isn’t that the truth. Once I tried making a chocolate fudge cake for a birthday, and after two unsuccessful tries, I quit. The cakes kept crumbling apart, so I ended up making a box mix.

          Some of my favorite recipes use box mixes, with added ‘special’ ingredients. They always come out nice and moist.

      • Myiq2xu says:

        Vincent Price was from an era when celebrities could be famous without being dysfunctional, disgusting and/or political.

      Careful there Klown…. you might find yourself banned by @mikiebarb (Michael Barbaro) like many others have been of late – just for criticizing the precious NYTimes.

    Made me think of Swan😉

    This is so pathetic. In related news, Hillary’s going to be interviewed by George Snufalopagus tomorrow on his Sunday show. I bet they’re rehearsing the Q&A’s right now where he’ll appear faux tough and she’ll have brilliant replies. Amirite?

    • 1539days says:

      ABC will probably tape the interview beforehand, just to edit it into coherence. Wouldn’t want one of those “Muslim faith” comments getting out.

    • lizzy says:

      When are the Times turkeys going to analyze Obama’s spew for patterns of a demagogue? Of course his pearls are so lacking in coherence and reason that they
      probably have no pattern. His speech is just soporific.

  17. DeniseVB says:

    Share this with your favorite Obama and Hillary supporting friends😀

  18. Myiq2xu says:

    The family of Mrs. Terrorist is complaining that we “disrespected” them by publishing pictures of her uncovered face.

    They should be grateful we didn’t drag her naked body around the public square before displaying her head on a spike.

    They are never satisfied, Always complaining about something. 🙄

  21. mothy67 says:

    Must be very difficult to grow up an American girl with religious moslem parents. People across the street are from Iran. Three sons one daughter. She used to play outside and went to regular school. Assume Aunt Flo paid a visit because she now wears a burka, goes to a private school and is never outside. Must be so strange to have your whole world change over night. Very small school less than a hundred per grade. Brat has 17 in her class. No buses. Everybody knows everybody. Five years I’ve waited to pick her up with the same parents. Property tax is high but i think its worth it. Anyhow this girl was a part of the community. Now she s a shut in. Has to suck.

    I think I confused this guy:

    • blowme0bama says:

      The impulse of these control freaks in Media / Government (I repeat myself) is what needs to be fixed.

    • DeniseVB says:

      That was a fun exchange, you handled him brilliantly ! LOL, had to scroll through Ryan’s timeline and he appears to enjoy live tweeting sports events, saving animals and giving advice to frusrated housewives who read 50 Shades of Grey😉 Absolutely not a gun expert.

    BOOM !😀

    • Dora says:

      You beat me to it. I was just coming over here to post that. Wow! Go George!

    • cynic says:

      ‘In a seven-page confidential memo that imagines Trump as the party’s presidential nominee, the head of the National Republican Senatorial Committee urges candidates to adopt many of Trump’s tactics, issues and approaches — right down to adjusting the way they dress and how they use Twitter.’

      Looks like Pataki is taking their advice.

    For the 50th anniversary of Charlie Brown’s Christmas, Obama summed it up for us: love for tiny trees, peace and good will:

    Wonder if the nation’s ever had another Potus whose supporters self-selected so highly for pious self-absorbed elitist jackasses. I think probably not.
