  1. Apparently there is a “Girls” marathon on HBO today. Not a good way to start the new year.

    live stream of the philadelphia mummers parade.
    the string bands are on now. they are great there is nothing like them anywhere else


    • helenk3 says:

      now they will show the fancy divisions. It has changed a lot. now I guess the fancies perform inside at the convention center. It used to be the comics, the fancies and then the string bands. It started around 8:00am and ended after dark

      I really hope you liked the parade and see why I watch it every year
      I do not know of any other parade like it. it is over 100 years old. and a family tradition. No professionals , they are all everyday working people

      • helenk3 says:

        I guess I misunderstood, I thought they were going to show the fancy brigades but so far they have not

        • helenk3 says:

          i just checked again and now they say the fancy brigades will be on at 8pm. broadway has nothing on these guys

          • lateblum says:

            Helen, I turned it on after I returned home for the day. The streaming was excellent and the costumes were stunning and the choreography was really good. I saw only a little bit, and I had no idea there was the type of competition that exists. You’re right. It’s as over-the-top as a Broadway show! And it’s magical as well.

          • lizzy says:

            Thanks for the link to the parade. My daughter and I loved the few minutes we saw. It would be fun to see it in person next year. Wish we had known how great it was earlier.

          • helenk3 says:

            glad you got to see some of it. On April 1 there is a string band show It used to be called show of shows Now it has another name. you can get tickets if you would like a weekend in Phila. the stringbands are amazing

    • AniEm says:

      I tuned in to see a comic division dressed like rubber ducks, except for one guy who was dressed as Jesus and running around all the rubber ducks while waving an American flag. The mummers are like LSD on steroids. Greatest show on earth.

    • swanspirit says:

      I have news for Van Jones. Not only are the Clinton days over, the Van Jones days are over as well. He has been a power seeking communist for a long time, but it’s over Van. We can tell by you being on CNN. Van, you were one of those talking heads that predicted Hillary would win. How did that turn out?

      • 1539days says:

        Bill Clinton gave a long, boring speech at the Democratic Convention in 1988. I think after three decades, it might be time for someone else to take a crack at politics.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I read the other day that Alan Dershowitz will leave the Dems if the muzzie Ellison becomes DNC chair. That’s a start. The Dems really need to clean house and take a few GOPe’s with them.

    • AFVet says:

      That reminds me of Michelle Obama.
      Thanks to her, we now know what a shaved Yeti looks like. 😦

    Well,we, 3 couples overnighted at my place. Sleeping bags all over the place, beds for the ladies, mine and one in the spare ,when needed, guest room.
    Food, nothing heavy, little bits to nosh on, you know the drill, chix wings 3 ways, nachos, cheese and ham bits, bbq rib tips.
    Drinks, men, beer, bourbon shots, not to many shots, it would have interfered with our poker game.
    Women, mimosas and a beer here and there. Men stogies, natch.
    Champagne at Midnight. Just a glass then back to poker and reliving the Trump victory.
    Nickel dime stakes, so no one gets crazy or hurt.
    Biscuits and sausage gravy or choice of leftover ham, sausage and eggs, anyway you want them as long as its scrambled for breakfast/lunch.
    Seltzer water to rehydrate, coffee black with a shot of bourbon for those that don’t know better, bloody marys for those that do.
    Was still able to post and read same here at TCH, and with Trump taking the Oath of Office soon, it was a damn good day.

    • Somebody says:

      Sounds like a lot of fun Cisco, wish I could have been there.

    • Venus says:

      Sounds perfect, Cisco. In my family traditions, we believe it is good luck to be gambling when the New Year comes in.

      I hope your 2017 is full of love, good health, joy & prosperity.

      • CiscoKid says:

        Somebody & Venus.
        Somebody, you’d be very welcome, unless you play good poker, LOL!
        Venus and everyone here at TCH, a year filled with peace, and a blessed and safe New Year for everyone.
        ps: Kash winner of the night, I don’t know about the other players, but she left today with $25 of mine. I think I’m developing a “tell”.

        • Somebody says:

          I used to be a very good poker player, but haven’t played in years. My husband 100% sucks, whatever I win he finds a way to lose, sometimes more than I win.

          True story, at Atlantis hubby decided to try roulette…NO! After he lost a few times I decided to bet against him, LOL! My strategy paid off, walked away $125 to the good. That was the last time he ever gambled, I might have been a bit bitchy about the whole thing, both in the casino and after we left……just a tad bitchy, LOL!

          • Somebody says:

            PS I would have walked away with a lot more $$ if I didn’t have to cover his losses.

            I’ll never, ever go to Vegas with him again either, oy! He’s quite the charmer though when I mention his terrible track record with gambling he tells me that’s because he cashed in all his good luck chips on finding me.

    • 49erDweet says:

      And nobody called the cops on you? Musta been pretty tame.

  4. I don’t blame him.

    • Propertius says:

      “[T]he main reason she didn’t win is because they ran a terrible candidate! ”

      Well, the terrible campaign didn’t hurt, either.

    • lateblum says:

      I almost never watch anything that goes over a few minutes long. I just watched ^this^ and am still grinning. I had not seen any of this before just now.
      Thanks for posting it.

    • Somebody says:

      I’ve never watched these jackasses before. The founding fathers were all slave owners and died in their 40’s, WTF? They sure don’t know much about history.

      Are these people all from Flint, MI or something? Maybe we have a more serious issue with lead in our water supply than we thought.

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      You can tell the youngish woman’s story about those awful white guys is fake. Watch her face and head and you can tell she worked the tale tale out ahead of time and is trying to frame it just the way she wants.

    • Ann says:

      I’m just glad to be out of my misery. This year has been worse than normal for the Bills, and that is saying something in light of the last 17 seasons.

  6. Dora says:

    Does he look a little embarrassed? Maybe he’s just shy.

    He is adorable, that’s for sure.

    • Somebody says:

      He’s at the age where mom kisses are starting to get embarrassing. He’s not quite old enough to speak up about it yet, that’ll happen in a couple of years. Then in a couple of decades he’ll cherish kisses from mom again. #littleboys

    another “too good to fact check” story – Obama and Jared Kushner get ibto a screaming match at a secret Hawaii meeting


    • Island Girl says:

      Ewwww! Well since the local slobbering press hasn’t said squat since Barry made a fool of himself here instead of enjoying his last vacation I will make my own version.
      He finds out the wholesome Ivanka Trump and her beautiful family have been staying on a neighbor island after being harassed by some freak on a flight here, sees she is actually enjoying the beauty while flying on a helicopter to see the volcano and waterfall and all that, ordering food from a local store and demands to fly to their 4 Seasons to demand he is still important damn it!
      (Most of this is true)

      • DeniseVB says:

        I remember when the local Hawaiian media was the best source for the Obama family vacation “gossip”. Where they biked, hiked, ate, partied, blah, blah, blah. Now there’s nothing? They’re probably as sick of them as we are. 🙂

        We’ve already saved millions on the Trumps with their Florida vacation home trips. And his security and staff will live in luxury staying at his resort, which is already a very secured area that really won’t require those 2 week advance trips SS makes to secure properties.

        Trump is already making America great again !

  8. Last week Derek Carr broke his leg. Now his back-up is hurt. The current Raiders current QB is a rookie who never even suited up for a game all season until today.

    I blame #2016

  12. cynic says:

    Happy 2017! Wishing everyone here good health, happiness, and prosperity. I know that nothing can beat 2016 in our household, so I’ll be happy for things to run smoothly. Hubby is pretty sure that he’ll be retiring, but not much else going on here.

    For some crazy reason, I decided to invite even more people over today than I had over, one week ago, for Christmas! It was to be a relaxing day of games, working on a jigsaw puzzle, and a lunch of chili and cornbread. Sounded simple, but I ended up working for two straight days to pull this off. I love my family, and want to make memories for them, but my body is beginning to send me hints that I can’t keep up the pace. One of these days, I’m going to do absolutely nothing! Maybe I’ll even stay in my jammies all day!

  13. I want this on a loop.

    • 49erDweet says:

      Maybe Facebook will make it available as one of their home screen background videos.

      This is what happens when all your life you’ve “won” participation trophies.

    • Lulu says:

      Drama queen. She probably does this when any expectation of hers is not met. As in her dry cleaning is not ready or the UPS delivery missed her apartment or the bakery was out of her favourite donut. This is self comfort and attention seeking.

    My older brother voted for Hitlary. He is a VP for a yuuuge company.
    We grew up for reals po. Like I walked on my jeans in bath tub and ironed them dry poor. Never understood why we had a shower but toilet was a wood shed.
    Not sure how you define rich, but my siblings have fared well. We don’t hurt. We had a TV it just didn’t work. My mom forced us to make up stories. We sat in front of a big console and made stuff up. Imagine extreme poverty and I was born a freak. Two holes in my heart, aorta too far to the right, leaky valves, heart was 4times normal size. My chance of living was 1 in a million. Seems I am still going. My mom started making babies at 14. Six kids and she became an executive. She was a nurse. Dennis Miller’s mom worked with her.
    I have been given so much. I lived in London, Paris, Berlin, NYC, Philly before I was 25. I went to Purdue on a scholarship.
    I don’t get pity. I was a child washing dishes and picking corn. My sister needed clothes I bought them.
    My parents did the Jim Tim thang. He never does anything wrong but he stands by me. I woke up one day in Hyde Park covered in my urine. I had no idea. Where I was. I had no clue where my hostel was. He sent me ten grand and all he said was rest
    We were arguing about Trump. He said I was bandwagon. Sucks to be him. Amazon keeps history. I sent Jim The Art of the Deal in 2008 with a screed about Trump running. Its on my Amazon page.
    I get a kick out of talking heads defining us white trash.
    I be a gay. I have four brothers. Yeah sure allow some twinkon cnn decide how we feel.
    Steve was quarterback. He wrote in his yearbook under hero my brother Tim Cain. Steve is like. My bestest friend. He is my little brother. Not so little. He was Mr Pennsylvania. Fuck off elitist tools.
    My mom was in nursing school. Who do you think wiped Steve’s ass. Who packed his lunches and walked him to the bus.
    Steven is my brother. We had bunk beds. He is a jock. He is my brother. Straight white male bashing offends me. The best people I know are my brothers.

  16. Dora says:

    I don’t know if they are really that stupid, or if they think we are. Probably a bit of both.

    I seem to be sitting in the middle of an electrical thunder storm. Yikes! http://en.blitzortung.org/live_lightning_maps.php?map=30

    • DeniseVB says:

      Whoa, are all those click sounds “strikes” ? Cool map. We’re predicted 2 inches of rain today, thanks goodness it’s in the 40’s, could be 20 inches of snow.

    I tried to watch local news.
    Help my head. I could not understand. TV just blurted nonsense.
    Some poop about Mariah Carry.
    I guess she lip synced. So what. How is that news?
    39 people shot inTurkey. News is all about an old tart.
