    Those flowers are gorgeous, I love pastels. The weather here is very cold, and can’t make up its mind between snow, and rain, except when it chooses ice. 37 days til Spring!

    • DeniseVB says:

      The link to those posies came from a UK flower shop 🙂 Nice to know there’s some normalcy in the UK.

      I have the Weather Channel on, we’re both on the line for rain/snow/sleet/lava flows, lol. You have a better chance since you’re well north of our line in Williamsburg. Hey, it’s February, hope your local forecasters aren’t as crazy as mine 😀 Stay tuned. THIS COULD CHANGE ANY MINUTE NOW ! Heh.

        The flowers you’ve been posting have brightened my days! 🌷💐🌷
        Thank you.❣️

      • Constance says:

        The flowers are brightening my days too. Seattle has had a mild winter, I didn’t even disconnect the hoses this year until this week as now we are supposed to get some sort of arctic blast giving us night time temperatures of 24 to 30 degrees. The flowers are making me think of my garden. I think I might plant more vegetables and fruit this year. Usually I just go for pretty flowers. About 5 weeks to the equinox!

    I finally took my Christmas wreath off my door. I don’t know if it’s time to put the daffodil one up yet. I have a wine delivery coming on Saturday so I need to dig out the front porch and steps again. I don’t know if having the daffodils up would be encouraging or depressing. But I know which side putting something wintry up would fall on. All of my roses are red, but I do love the pastel mix.

    • DeniseVB says:

      You’re ahead of me. We downsized our tree this year to a 4 footer with tiny white lights and just big enough to hold all our White House ornament collection. It’s still up because it makes me happy 🙂

      • lateblum says:

        I’m finally boxing the Christmas decorations this week. I didn’t even have a tree this year, but my house looks VERY Christmas-y throughout, with wreaths, Santa’s, mini-trees figurines and twinkling lights everywhere. This place is 110 years old and has all the wonderful wooden built-ins of the “Victorian/Queen Anne” style and it makes Christmas decorations even more beautiful. And I’m so happy to hear that I’m not the only one cheered by the decorations.

        • lateblum says:

          I’ve been slowly working on it, but there seems to be no rush on dismantling my Christmas this year.

      • Miranda says:

        Lots of people are converting their Christmas trees to Valentine and Easter trees.

      • Constance says:

        I left my tree up until inauguration day because I was just so happy to have President Trump as our leader. On that creeped out Inauguration with razor wire and fencing and military the only ones in attendance, and they turned their backs on Biden’s motorcade, I took down all my pretty lights and decor. Who knows how I’ll feel next year.

    • 1539days says:

      I took down the wreath when it was blown off. The lights are still up and on a timer. So are a couple on houses’ lights down the road. I can’t remove them anyway until the icicles melt a little.

    • Dr. Myiq2xu says:

      I still have my 2016 Halloween decorations up.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Colbert is so annoying, stopped being a fan when he turned into the Greta Thunberg/David Hogg clone of late night “comedians”. Just an effing righteous bore.

      • lateblum says:

        I stopped liking him while he was on The Daily Show. My sister thought he was brilliant. She still does. She also thinks I must’ve had a stroke that made me into a “Conservative robot”.

    • swanspirit says:

      If we retake the House and the Senate in 2022, we could impeach both of them. Wouldn’t that be fun? Now there is some motivation for us all!.

    More beautiful flowers!

    You sure know how to pick them Denise. 🙂

      “It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.” Describes Andrea pretty well, dontcha think?

    • swanspirit says:

      That’s pretty funny. To even think for a nanosecond that was Faulkner. She should go say the name of “The Scottish Play” in a theatre. And not go outside and not turn three times, spit over your left shoulder and recite an appropriate line from a different Shakespeare play, such as ‘angels and ministers of grace defend us,’ from Hamlet.

  5. Dora says:

    This is so cool! 🙂

  6. DeniseVB says:

    Good grief Hillary, don’t you have some grandmothering to do and enjoy your golden years rather than stay in a permanent state of bitter snitery.

  7. DeniseVB says:

    Usually these personal indiscretions don’t bother me, but liberals do deserve the pile ons of shame after spending so much time bashing those who disagree with them. Eh, Brucie ?

  8. elliesmom says:

    I have a question- If you were a woman in your late twenties, and your boyfriend came to your house for dinner and parked his truck with a big snowplow on the front in your driveway, and then left without engaging his plow with your driveway on the way out, would you consider him worth your time? Fathers and nosey neighbors want to know.

    • DeniseVB says:

      First of all, a shovel attachment on his truck….I’d want to know if he actually had a purpose for it or it was a New England Redneck sorta decoration thing? Or a borrowed truck, even worse 😉

      When I lived in upstate NY, those pick up shovels usually made some extra beer money by clearing parking lots for private businesses. If you had a riding mower, they had a shovel attachment to clear sidewalks. I thought that was pretty cool 🙂

      • elliesmom says:

        There are a lot of folks in New England who for practical purposes don’t need a truck, but they drive one anyway. The F150 is very popular. But if you’ve paid for a plow that fits your truck and have gone to the trouble of attaching it in the winter, you use it to plow snow. No one drives around the plow attached all year. Owning a truck with a plow is a way to make a lot of money around here. Some towns have plows they use to plow the main streets, but then contract with owners of snowplows to do the side streets and winding country roads like mine. My street is narrow enough for a pass by an F150 in each direction to be “good enough”. This guy plows snow.

      • 1539days says:

        Back when I was stupid enough to not have a snowblower, I paid one of those guys driving around to plow the driveway. The guy with the snowblower in the pickup truck bed did a better job and charged less.

    • Woke Lola says:

      Drop it like it’s snot.

    • Miranda says:

      Eh, sometimes people don’t think of obvious things. Did she ask him to plow the driveway? (not a euphemism, lol)

      • elliesmom says:

        She might not have asked, but the dads think a good guy would have just done it. He had backed into the driveway so all he had to do was lower the plow on his way out. Note: These guys are retired Marines. I didn’t see it happen. They asked me if I would “kick his ass down the road.” My response was a man whose trying to win a woman’s heart is usually at his best then.

    • swanspirit says:

      If he came to her home for dinner, I am assuming she cooked and served dinner. I could be wrong. But he came to dinner, ate and didn’t plow the driveway?? Nope. Not worth it.

      • elliesmom says:

        Like I said, I didn’t see him do it. I was talking to “the guys” about the easiest way to clear the snow off a driveway. My snow angel said I made it really easy for him because I always park my car in the garage, and I never drive over the snow before he clears it. Then one of them mentioned how this guy not only didn’t plow her driveway, he also drove over the snow making it harder for her to shovel it. The men in my neighborhood make it their business to take care of the women without being interfering so I’m sure none of them will say anything to her. But given the opportunity, they might say something to him. 🙂

        • 1539days says:

          Plows can be a blunt instrument. They work well in large areas. I’m a fan of the snowblower (technically, snow thrower). They’re more precise. I don’t really have neighbors (1/4 mile from the next house) so not sure what a good neighbor or gentleman caller does.

  9. Dora says:

    Not bad. 🙂

    Resigns? Seems more like he was pushed out.

    U.S. attorney for Utah, John Huber, resigns

    WASHINGTON, DC (ABC4) – The U.S. attorney for Utah, John Huber, has announced that he is resigning on Wednesday under the instruction of President Joe Biden.

  11. elliesmom says:

    The front porch isn’t totally cleared, but there’s a wide enough path to the steps. The steps are done, too, but that took longer than it needed to. The storm door was blocked by snow, and I couldn’t open it. I had to start from the driveway and work my way up. It’s much better to do steps from the top down or you get snow all over the step you’ve already shoveled. Like you don’t start cleaning the kitchen by washing the floor. But it’s all shoveled and salted now. The sun has melted off half the driveway. The FEDEX delivery guy should be able to get my wine to the door tomorrow or Saturday. The fun thing was I found tiny little footsteps going back and forth in front of my garage door. Not a bird. More like cat prints, but too tiny. It looks like something was trying to get in out of the cold. 😦

    Icy roads, several deaths and many injuries in Ft Worth this morning. Up to 100 vehicles involved. Be careful, those of you who have to drive in wintery conditions.

    This is video as it was happening.

    • lyn5 says:

      That is nuts. Are drivers in a trance?

      • taw46 says:

        The roads were very icy, couldn’t stop. They say the road is at an incline, couldn’t see the crash until they were at top and on the crash site.

      • swanspirit says:

        That accident gave me flashbacks. I was in an accident very similar, but much smaller in scale , and thank Goddess no injuries, on an icy bridge driving home from work around 11:30 12 O’clock at night, quite a few years ago, (3-11 shift)

        And it was terrifying. There was no ice on the road, just on the bridge, which has a major design flaw and the water drainage off the bridge is bad, plus being a bridge, it ices up before roads.
        When I got on the bridge, I could feel the ice, and then my heart sank, because way at the top I could!d see A white van spinning around. At the time, my car was 4 on the floor, so I threw it into second gear, and was just going along slowly, hoping and praying I could somehow get around that van when I got there.
        Then from behind me came A little black pick up truck, going about 45mph, and they plowed into the back end of my Hyundai hatchback, without slowing down at all.

        Somehow, I hung on to that steering wheel, and my car didn’t hit the guard rail, or the divider in the middle. The two guys in the pickup, weren’t hurt, their airbags deployed. Everyone got out of their cars. The next thing coming down the pike was a tractor trailer. I was so freaked. I jumped over the divider and crouched down behind, it, yelling at the two guys to get out of the way. They were just standing there in the road BETWEEN my car and theirs. Thank goodness again, the bridge was also a steep hill, and the truck driver managed to stop his truck before he hit anything. But I could tell he was pretty upset, too.

        More cars came along, from behind. One hit the truck, but not too hard, and the rest managed to stop, but every time was another scare.
        Finally, the cops came. Then a salt truck came, and tried to back up the bridge to salt it, and couldn’t make it up the bridge.
        My car was totaled.
        A very kind state trooper gave me a ride home, after they got everything sorted out, finally.
        I have always hated driving over that bridge ever since. Even on hot dry sunny days.

        • taw46 says:

          Oh Swannie, how awful! You were all some very lucky people, it could have been so much worse. I lived in Charlotte for a few years and we did occasionally get ice storms. I remember a friend and I driving home after work at the airport scared to death of icy roads. I am glad I never lived where I had to deal with that all through winter.

      These beautiful children are being abused by TPTB via the local school boards. They aren’t even pawns in this game. This suicide means nothing to the grownups who are making a fortune of money and are gaining more and more control of our children and their parents. I cannot begin to tell you just how enraged I am by this torment of the children
      And no matter how good their online educators are, these children have had a year of their lives sacrificed on the altar of the CCP or WHO or DAVOS or whatever. We’ve had at least 18 kids take their lives in Illinois. And that’s only one of 50 states with who knows how many other beautiful children dying.

      This is what many of our little ones have experienced – more than once. They have had. NOTHING to look forward to and no one to offer them help.

    Eric Metaxas Sued for Defamation Over Claims of Voter Fraud

    Popular Christian radio host Eric Metaxas has been named in a defamation lawsuit for statements Metaxas made concerning voter fraud and Dominion Voting Systems.

    The lawsuit brought by Dominion Voting Systems Vice President Eric Coomer accuses several groups of spreading false claims of voter fraud. These resulted in threats of violence to Coomer’s company and Coomer, the suit claims.

    Besides Metaxas, the accused include the Donald J. Trump for President campaign, Sydney Powell, Rudy Giuliani, One America News Network and other groups, which made similar claims.

      Besides losing every red state contract, this Dominion lawsuit strategy will work out poorly.
      Dominion’s Voting Systems VP:
      Criticized Trump
      Explained how Dominion’s “adjudication system” can fix votes that are “wrong.”
      Will not release machines of source code for auditing.

      I wish I had never read the article. My head feels as if it’s going to explode. Cuomo and his aide should be in jail for the rest of their lives. She is apologizing to the Democrats for not being honest INSTEAD OF the families of those people who, like the children, were sacrificed to the gods of CCP, WHO, and the Democrats that used this entire pandemic to upend and get rid of PDJT.
      I’m at a loss for words that are decent and thoughtful. My emotions have quite taken over in the madness of COVID19.

        Me too I”m still outraged at the fraud and needless deaths from stuffing sick people into nursing homes and from Making Hydroxychloroquine illegal when all evidence pointed to it working an not harming people. I’m trying to spend time concentrating on the parts of life that are still working and still good.

      • Angie says:

        They blamed Trump & Biden’s DOJ just dropped the investigation as a reward for that.

        I think the survivors should sue the shit out of these people for elder abuse and wrongful death.

  36. Constance says:

    Candace Owens said there was a huge explosion in DC last night that shook her whole house from the shock wave and there were fire trucks everywhere. She heard that a building was being evacuated because of high carbon monoxide levels but she is not sure how carbon monoxide levels are related to an explosion. I haven’t hear anything about this in the MSM. Of course I don’t pay that much attention to the MSM so i could have missed it. Seems important but i guess they don’t want to talk about it.

    • lateblum says:

      Like so many other important things they don’t want to discuss, they will skip this if it somehow reflects poorly on the Left.

    I don’t know if I feel confortable contributing to a book. Holly’s mom is aking for diities. She is dead. Cervical cancer. She is Chelsea Clinton’s mother in law.i didn’t know a cause. I had a friend. She met an early demise. I will never utter a negative word about Marjorie. She was the freshman congresswoman that passed Clinton’s budget. Holly was perhaps born to a Vietnamese prostitute and a GI. Who kmows the truth. I was standing outside of Magnolia Cafe under the Worry beads. I was being Tim so i hadded a bottle of Dom. Sam asked me to come in and work. He paired me with Holly. She was Holly. Complex is understatement. Of course when we met it was like a Hart to Hart rip off. Two of Phillies most attractive. I had had multiple open hearts and Holly was adopted by rich main line jews. Ever watch Gremlins? Imagine giving cocaine to sexy beasts in center city. It was so strange. Like I had always known her. It was a very precious time. Personally I desire to leave it there. I had to deal with Holly dying. I don’t want to rewrite her gothic story. She was my friend. A blue eyed boy met a brown eyed girl oh the sweetest thing. Is that U2? Can I relate noise??? I had quite a few open hearts. I don’t think I can lie. The truth would account for more. I wanna leave stuff as history. I am not that strong to couple my best friends death. I am this weak sot. I will not even attempt a lie. I can’t hold Holly in my minds eye. I cannot dismiss my friend who had a life. Not on my watch. In dreams begin responsibilities. Holly holey. . I suck. Yep Tim is jackass. This jackass is gonna protect.

    Obviously no sympathy requested because I brought this on myself but holy shit the post-anesthesia fatigue. My rhino was a week ago and yesterday, I fell asleep in the car (IT WAS PARKED AT THE TIME) for like 15 minutes waiting to pick up the kids from school. And I mean really asleep–I woke up and didn’t know where I was for a minute or two. The Internet tells me this could go on for another week. Ugh. I never knew this was A Thing.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Sounds like great use of waiting time 😀 Hope all is healing well, I have a consult with a plastic surgeon next week to deal with basal cell on my schnoz since my dermatologist doesn’t want to leave a gaping hole in the middle of my face. At my age, I do not look forward to a new face….or worse, a Michael Jackson nose.

      • lateblum says:

        This aging thing sucks royally. Cancers, basal cells, cataracts, memory issues, . . .

        Ugh, I had a little skin tag thing on the end of my nose a few years ago that made me look like the Wicked Witch of the West and I DID end up with what I can only describe as a divot when the doctor removed it. NOT GOOD.
