    Is Mary Poppins racist now?

    • Myiq2xu™ says:

      I wouldn’t say we were forgotten. We knew we were still here. The only people who forgot about us never GAF about us anyway.

      We were blamed.
      We were dismissed.
      We were ignored.
      We were underestimated.
      We were victorious.

    I am rewatching GoT. I think Gendry is going to sit on the Iron Throne. Bet he is cersai and robert’s child she thought was stillborn.

    • Venus E. Lee says:

      Nope. My theory:

      John Snow’s real identity, Aegon Targaryen, is revealed by the Crow to all. He is the legitimate Prince of Bloodstone and heir with better right to throne than his aunt Daenarys. They plan to rule together, but Daenarys dies in childbirth (her & John’s child) who will inherit the throne.

      • swanspirit says:

        I agree but I don’t think Daenarys dies. I think Sersei dies, and her child and John and Daenarys child grow, and marry, and rule together.

      As long as Gendry rules shirtless, I’m good with that ending.

    This is funny

    Sounds good.

    Since every thread here is an open thread–how the hell do I figure out how to arrange furniture? Left to my own devices, every place I live ends up looking like a bus station–all furniture up against the wall.

    • Miranda says:

      I get ideas from HGTV magazine, but honestly, the way the houses and apartments I’ve lived in have been built only left a couple of ways to set up furniture.

      We watch TV or read, mostly, in the living room, so the furniture is arranged so both of us can see the TV and the walkways are clear.

      • Jadzia says:

        The walkway is key! We moved into a new house about six months ago and it’s the biggest challenge ever because the first floor is an open floor plan. TOO MANY CHOICES! And actually way more space than I have furniture for (we moved to this country with nothing), so now I’m having to bite the bullet and actually buy things like armchairs. So it’s probably going to be a very long time before the place is completely furnished given my attitude that I’d rather save up and get what I really want instead of getting what I can afford right now. The lack of furniture made it a lot easier to get some wall painting done, though.

        • Miranda says:

          I’d love an open floor plan! We’re still in the house we bought 25 years or so ago, and the living room is big, but there’s a separate dining room (which I’m considering turning into a home office), and kitchen.

          Beyond have-to-haves (no need to sit on the floor), I’d certainly wait and get what I wanted.

          My only suggestion would be to have a couple of seating areas, so if some people wanted to watch TV or game, others could have an area to sit and talk. If you have bookcases, maybe use those to define a den area. If you have windows with a good view, set a couple of chairs there to take advantage of that.

          • Somebody says:

            I was going to suggest two seating areas also. One for TV, etc., and one for conversation or a quiet area for reading. Two sofas facing each other makes a nice conversation area, or two sets of comfy chairs or one of each. A chaise with a good light makes a cozy reading nook or an overstuffed chair with ottoman.

            Do they have a goodwill kind of place there? Thrift shops? You could buy some used pieces in good condition and use them in a sort of try before you buy scenario. Then replace them one by one with pieces you love OR if you find a used piece you love spend the money to refurbish it. Investing $50 or $100 in chair to find out you don’t like a chair and would prefer a love seat, is a lot better than spending 10 times that to find out.

            There are tons of ideas out there on the net. Have fun searching around to see what suits your taste and your space……YOUR space! Has a nice ring to it, no?

          • Somebody says:

            I look forward to the day I don’t need my dining room, because that will mean I’ve passed the baton for holidays and family gatherings to someone……anyone, Bueller, Bueller. 😉

        • 1539days says:

          Furniture against the wall is good when it’s a small room. If it’s a big room, you can use furniture to break up the space, like a conversation area. You need to know what you want to happen in a room, if people need to sit at a table or just place drinks on it. Then you just find something the right size that looks nice.

        • Anthony says:

          Email me the exact dimensions and I’ll send you back a couple of ideas for layouts, traffic patterns, etc.

    Hi crawdadders 🤗
    If you please, just a simple postcard for my brother-in-blue.
    He was expected to die, but thru the grace of God he has survived 3 years.

    They sure grow them big down there.

    • Somebody says:

      I saw that yesterday 😲 That’s pretty far north for such a beast, you might expect that in the Everglades, but in Georgia. That area is about 130 miles south of downtown Atlanta, less than 100 miles from suburban Atlanta. They get some pretty cold winter temps and occasionally a bit of snow, clearly this old guy adapted just fine.

      It really makes you wonder about the baby gators they used to sell on the roadside in Florida that people took up north and eventually released. 😲

    I finally got to see Brandon’s entire CPAC speech, worth a watch if you missed it 😀

    I usually scroll quickly past anything AOC these days, but the NYP article is a good read on her hypocrisy, her response too 😀

    • Somebody says:

      She isn’t concerned about flying, car rides or A/C, she’s in the ruling class now. The struggles will be for the little people, not important people.🙄
