    Lola, nice shout out to Klown and Denise. They do indeed keep the place open 24/7 so all of us scattered about the TCH Universe can come and hang out at all hours.

    And every time I see that picture, I want that taco salad. 🍲

      I sooo want that taco salad. It looks delicious!

    • Somebody says:

      When hubby and I were in NYC this summer hubby simply HAD to go to Trump Tower. No taco bowl, but they had turkey and dressing with two veggies for like $8 or something like that. It was very, very affordable especially for NYC. It was quite good, although the plate was massive and I couldn’t eat it all. Two huge slices of turkey, I could have stopped with those.

      I imagine the taco bowl is quite good based on the food we had. Stopping by there was one of the more enjoyable parts of our trip. It was a quiet respite. I didn’t expect it to be quiet or calming, but it was. There is a waterfall that is sort of white noise and soothing.

      For small town folks NYC can be sensory overload, especially when you try to see it “all” in a short time span. So that little stop was quite welcome and as I said surprising. There really isn’t much there, but definitely the go to place for Trump items. Plus everybody there was super friendly, even the secret service.

    • Woke Lola says:

      Me too! Taco bowl yummy.

    Thank you Myiq2xu and DeniseVB for keeping this refuge up and running. And also thank you everyone else. This place is like a secret doomsday bunker filled with sane, interesting and compassionate badasses. Thank you X100

    Watching a movie on Crackleand I have seen 2 Nanny bloomberg ads.

    • Mothy67 says:

      Seriously the last commercial break had 6 ads. Five were the same bloomie ad. How annoying.

      • foxyladi14 says:

        I DVR every thing.,lol
        Zoom right through the ads. 😆

        • Mothy67 says:

          I don’t think you can dvr a streamer? Check out any show on Crackle. It’s the same ad from bloomie over and over again. It is religiously pathetic. When it goes to a commercial break it will say one of six ads. Something random runs and then 5 times the same thing runs. Bloomie saying Trump people are sick of Trump and he is making America sick. It’s awful. I bet everyone watching is stoned. Check it out. You can watch Crackle without downloading anything.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you Myiq2xu, DeniseVB and all TCHers for this little place of sanity in a crazy world.

    In addition to being sane, this lovely place is also insightful, perceptive, intelligent, rational, truthful, honest, patriotic, remarkable, kindhearted, and friendly with a lot of common sense and humor in the mix.

  25. Myiq2xu™ says:

    When I first started blogging I felt that I had a lot to say.

    After 12 years of blogging (10 at TCH), I have about as many fresh and original ideas as a Hollywood screenwriter.

  26. mothy2017 says:

    I am watching End Game with James Woods on Crackle ( free ad supported streaming) . Every other ad is nanny Bloomberg. I think crackle charges by the view so at least I know he’s throwing away some money. Terrible ad by the way.

    • lateblum says:

      How was the movie? I’ve never tried Crackle even though it is supported on my fairly antiquated wireless dvd player.

      • Mothy67 says:

        I fell asleep.
        Crackle has a few okay movies and Seinfeld. It’s similar to tubi.
        I have Prime and if there is something on another streamer I’ll get it for a month and then drop it.

      I finished The Rook on Starz. I liked it, and I usually don’t watch Sci-fi.

    This story keeps getting worse.


    Barack and Michelle Obama are advising Meghan and Harry on their new life outside the Royal Family… with Duchess set to copy their use of ‘star power’ to promote ‘humanistic projects’

    • DeniseVB says:

      LOL, so Harry and Sparkle are going to become Snake Oil salesmen ? The only “humanistic project” the Obamas work on is enriching themselves.

      • Mothy67 says:

        I don’t think the o’s are as popular as they think they are. Let’s not forget his yuuuge college rallies had beer, pizza, and Dave Matthews. Mike was constantly on the cover in the checkout line. Did he increase sales? I’d buy a mag with Melania on it, alas no chance. I bet they’d sell out.

        • DeniseVB says:

          When I stumble on a Twitter Obama themed thread, it’s all about Muh President and First Lady Forever. WTF are those people smoking? Sometimes I check those bios, 3-50 followers???? Tells me they’re from OFA, not reality.

    • Anthony says:

      Are the Dog Eaters are producing a Netflix documentary called “Grifting for Dummies” feauturing Harry & Meghan?

    • lyn says:

      Barry and Mooch are the dad Harry never had.

    I’m trying to be nice today, so I won’t say anything.

    I’m having a shitty morning.
    Kitchen faucet is spraying the room. I go to home depot telling myself to go cheap as the kitchen needs to be redone. I spent a 100 more than I wanted. Went to wallyworld to buy replacement toothbrushes. A 170 dollar toothbrush. The replacements were 30. Ugh – I bought the wrong ones, but they were in those stupid impossible to open plastic things so I opened them with kitchen scissors. Wrong heads, can’t return. Next Sam’s where I promise myself I am only spending 50 to restock the freezer. Didn’t happen.
    Look under the sink. No way in hell will I be able to change that. I can’t put together a weed whacker.
    Is it too early to start drinking?

    • DeniseVB says:

      Call. The. Guy. 😉 Seriously, my retired contractor dh (second career) is finally calling The Guy for our electrical and plumbing problems. Simply because he can’t bend anymore. If he does, it takes me 2 days to get him off the floor. And seriously, we’ve saved money. Parts: 1.25, chiropractor/orthopedist $1200. The Guy: $85.

      My favorite: Trying to save $45 Lowes installation fee for a new over-the-stove microwave. 3 days later (including removing the old one, rewiring for the new one so the kitchen doesn’t burn down, potential divorce costing dh half his retirement the rest of his life, my bitching and whinging, priceless)…….dh is a much smarter man now that I helped him find his new normal. 😀

      • Somebody says:

        I talked hubby into hiring a handy man to assist him with hanging his big TV. Hubby ended up hiring him to fix a door……wow turned a corner I thought. Door fixed quickly and inexpensively. So hubby hires same guy to fix window, not the same results. Still a work in progress (mostly done, drywall needs sanding). Dude has been working on it all week, started Monday. Honestly not that complicated, it so far has cost twice the home advisor cost estimate.

        Clearly he’s taking advantage of the situation. We paid for supplies as agreed, don’t think he expected me to be a bitch. 4 sheets of drywall?? For the side of a 72 inch tall window? 8 2×4’s, dude you could reframe the entire set of double windows with that, 25 pound back of drywall mud mix……seriously, I was born at night, but not last night. Fine I’ll pay for it as agreed, but guess what I now own it.

        Soooo, this has now soured hubby on hired help. God help me 🙁 There are a million things that need to be done around here that hubby has put off and put off. Today is plumbing day, see below.

        Yesterday he replaced the ballast in the light in my closet. What a clusterfuck. My light has been out since before Thanksgiving. He didn’t care wasn’t his closet. I could bitch until the cows came home. The ONLY gift I got for my birthday was a new ballast for said light from my son.

        Kids went back to school Monday, everyday my son says is the ballast changed, nope. Finally he says I’ll do it. Hubby no, no can’t have my son step on my man pride I’ll do it go away son.

        OMFG, we couldn’t cut power to the light. The fixture also wasn’t grounded. I’m like call an electrician this is ridiculous. Hubby no, 👎 I got this…, how much is your life insurance? 😜

        Finally yesterday he and my son tackled it. The fixture and the alarm are wired together. They are hard wired into the where the meter is, not into a breaker in the box. I guess so you can’t cut the power and attack me you’d have to cut the meter??? Somehow the battery backup flows back into the wires, so they had to disconnect the battery too.

        It was a mess. I stood by with a 2×4, luckily the handy man bought extras see below. The whole time hubby and son are like WTF, I’m like don’t care change the ballast and leave it. They both insist this wiring needs to change…..whatever fix my fucking light and we’ll hire an electrician later fix my light no turning back now!!

        Hubby was like you’re hoping I get a jolt so you have an excuse to hit me with that 2×4 aren’t you. I’m like, how could you say such a thing I’m standing by because I love you and want to protects you 😉

        True story, my brother is a master electrician. He doesn’t do electrical work any more, he’s moved up in the world. Back when our house was built he used to moonlight for a friend that owns an electrical company. My brother did commercial work, his friend’s company did residential work and in fact did my house.

        Code requires a master electrician be on sight and sign off. My brother used to moonlight and earn extra $$ sitting on his ass in his truck to be “on site” if an inspector showed up. My brother is the master electrician of record on my house. He knew it was my house, but still sat on his ass. I already made him fix a couple of things when we first moved in. Me thinks he’ll be getting another call😉 Could be a perfectly reasonable explanation, maybe it’s supposed to be like that just doesn’t seem right.

        Anyway, hubby was all in on the handy man thing till the guy pressed his luck. Now I’m back to, I’ll do that honey promise… the year 2525. Of course then if he does proceed to fix something, it’s rarely straight forward and easy. But hey, life is supposed to be an adventure right?

      It’s only to early to stop.
      Prost 🍻

    • Somebody says:

      Must be home improvement day. My husband is changing out faucets and drains in our bathroom, be still my heart. Only needed fixing for months now. I shall refrain from complaining because it could be worse, I’ve been unable to use my laundry room sink for two years now 🙄

      If you can’t hire someone Tim, there are tutorials online. Careful though one thing can lead to another… we need new valves according to DH. All I know is half a day so far without water. I’ve never wanted to live close to a gas station until today 😉 I could visit my neighbors I suppose, nah I’ll go shopping. Definitely, hubby just informed me he’s headed back to the store, wrong valves.

      I remember at our last house when he changed the shower head, that eventually ended with the entire wall having to redone, the pipe kept breaking he’d chase it and break it again. That’s what hard water does 🙄

      A few simple rules for life:

      1. Take care of your teeth, feet, and core.
      2. Always pay for an electrician or plumber. These are not DIY jobs.
      3. Day drinking is recommended, but only twice a year.
      3a. Unless there’s a boat involved, then you can drink at will.

      I’d say you’re doing pretty well!

    Anyone,……. anywhere.
    Name someone who could walk a mile in President Trump’s shoes?
    Seriously!! Think about it.
    For that matter, name someone who could stand, let alone walk, in his shoes?
    7.7 billion people on this planet and no one even comes close.
