    Good Morning.

    Another blooper!

    Of course she is!

    Here’s a joke to start your morning.
    What do you call the guy who graduated dead last in medical school?

    What do you call the guy who graduated dead last in law school?
    The President

    Happy Mother’s Day weekend to all TCHers💐

    • lateblum says:

      Oh that’s pretty! Lilacs? I noticed the lilac tree outside my bedroom window has leaves and flowers budding. It’s been so chilly here, I can’t imagine why the leaves and flowers are even wanting to peak through.

      We finally have sun today. It’s been cold (40°s) and rainy and windy this entire week. Last weekend there was some sun but it remained cold and windy. So it’s been a long dreary week.

      There are so many more interesting women to read about. Sorry ladies, your 15 minutes are up. To this day I don’t know how MichelleO stayed on the best sellers list for almost a year, her life story is pretty much zero interesting too.

      • lateblum says:

        That explains the lies, then.

        • DeniseVB says:

          So many lies. I think the biggest was giving up her career as a lawyer to spend time with her family, when Malia wasn’t even born for another 9 years after she LOST her license to practice.

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        I have always suspected they bought quite a few via those lovely organizations they set up. Ad then they get other organizations to buy them. Many will give such books out as gifts to visitors (think World Bank, WHO, . . . .). This is indeed how I came to own several books I would never have purchased myself.

        I spent some time researching as I kept wondering how books no one I know bothered to read were such spectacular sellers. Goodness knows I am acquainted with numerous pure flavor aid swilling bots.

        Many of todays best sellers do not sell as well as they want people to think. And very few of those with large upfront payments ever make the money back for the publisher. The algorithms used for online sales are interesting to say the least and the NYT has been known to develop their list based on what is purchased at a select numbers of book sellers who have the “right” clientele and then sprinkle with books with a level of popularity that cannot be ignored to make the list as a whole appear legit.

        That is why I was surprised mama did not make sure dearest daughter McCain’s book did better at least in its first week. She must feel it is not worth the expense to buy a slot on the best seller list.

        For instance, Sparkles managed to get her supposed children’s book to trend as a best seller for a couple days. In a very very specific small niche category but their PR (SS) were able to say “best seller”. The Sparkles actually bought a lot of the books and even “gifted” them. Word from parents of children at a Harlem school they visited on a trip to New York (where they and their Netflix crew were escorted out of the UN) is that were asked for a $5 donation per book for the Sparkles one non-profit. Of which the Sparkles only have to donate 5%.

      From the comments, “the cure for Ruth Sent Us is to send them to Ruth” 😀

      3 of the targeted Justices live in Maryland, will their Gov. help out too ?

      • lyn5 says:

        Love that one.

      • swanspirit says:

        Hogan is such a RINO, it remains to be seen what he will do!

        • Mt.Laurel says:

          Hogan is a major rhino but goodness knows what evil we are going to see in the next governor election. I am sure they are making sure not even a rhino will stand a chance ever again. goodness knows they have mangled the voting districts so they literally choke off western and southern Maryland and the eastern shore so Baltimore, Montgomery and PG counties can rule entirely.

          • swanspirit says:

            For sure. I hope we can at least re-elect Andy Harris.

          • DeniseVB says:

            Sounds like how NoVa rules the entire state of Virginia. Richmond, Charlottesville and Norfolk help.

          • lateblum says:

            Just like Illinois and Chicago. Often joined by Aurora and Rockford, both in northern Illinois. Both run by democrats or Republicans pretending to be democrats. One of them, running as a Republican, is “challenging” Putzker for governor. I’m voting R in the primary, and against the Richard Irvin, mayor of Aurora. Haven’t decided for whom yet.

    go woke, go broke. some businesses forgot about the bottom line and it hurt them bigly

    • DeniseVB says:

      I remember a recent Young Sheldon episode had Sheldon trying to convince 1989 NASA in Houston to use his plan to bring the booster rocket safely back to earth to save money in the future. They said it wasn’t possible at the time so he left his black and white composition book containing the plans with them to work it out. The very last scene showed Elon Musk reading Sheldon’s book. 🙂

    I thought Blake Lively’s dress at the Met Gala was exquisite. And I finally found a video that shows how they did it. It’s in this article.

    thought this would interest the Gardners here and a way to keep the Mother’s Day flowers for years

    A lottery scammer called at 5:15 a.m. today. Did John Baker (LOL) think a sleepy person would give out personal info? It was a recording, and the answering machine got some of it before I unplugged the phone.

      Shultz often hit the mark without anyone really noticing at the time. His children have been respectful and very protective of his legacy.

    Bought the DVD of “2,000 Mules.” It was $8.79 (with shipping) more than the digital copy.

    go to a rally, lose your job. some freedom huh? I guess they were not inciting,just there

  19. lateblum says:

    Just stopping by to say…
    I saw that “Bosch: Legacy” is out on something called FreeVee. It’s an IMDB streaming service with ads. I first saw an ad for “Bosch” on CBS last night. Then I downloaded FreeVee on Roku. I also checked on Prime and it’s available there as well via FreeVee, but still with ads. It looks good and I’m such a fan of Bosch that I look forward to watching it. There are 4 episodes already out and I read that a new episode drops every Friday. I hope it’s as good as the several seasons of Bosch were on Prime.
    Has anyone seen this new program?

  20. swanspirit says:

    Is anyone watching the Kentucky Derby? So many horses!! So hard to choose a favorite! I am liking Charge It, and Mo Donegal.

      How the mighty have fallen. Schmidt used to be the go-to for insider Palin bashing. Now his underling is the darling of MSNBC and he’s just a bald talking head.

  25. elliesmom says:

    My son is going to cover their store tomorrow so his wife can spend the day with her mom so he and I celebrated Mother’s Day today. He asked me what I wanted for Mother’s Day, and I asked for some “sonny-do” time. I had already replaced the post lights on my porch and stairs myself, but he helped me get crushed rock moved to the places I need it and some huge bags of potting soil to all of my planters. Then we went out and got some plants for some of the planters. We got some of the cardboard in my garage cut up for recycling. Then we went out to lunch. He offered to spread the rocks and the potting soil for me, but if I don’t have to lift heavy things, that’s the kind of puttering outside I like to do. He thought it was funny I’m putting spinach, lettuce, and flowering pole beans in some of the places I usually plant flowers, but my dad won’t stop whispering in my ear while I’m sleeping. “Food is pretty. You can’t eat petunias.”

    I had an interesting conversation with my son yesterday. His mother-in-law contracted covid in the months before her age cohort was eligible for the vaccine. She had the equivalent of a bad cold and recovered completely in a couple of weeks. A month or so later her doctor persuaded her to get the vaccine “just to be “safe”. Since then she’s had covid 3 more times. My son told one of the doctors he works with at Dana Farber about her experience. The doctor said while he’s an oncologist, not an immunologist, there are some ways viruses and cancer cells work the same way. He speculated that when she got the vaccine, her body was already swimming with antibodies. The vaccine mechanism in the mRNA vaccines might have recognized the antibodies as the “invader” and began killing them instead. While he admitted he was just guessing, there have been a remarkable number of vaccinated people who keep getting covid. Unvaccinated people who get covid and recover are more likely to be one and done although that’s not always true. He assured my son that while the public may be unaware, the medical community is not.

    • lyn5 says:

      Wow–that is a very interesting!

    • 1539days says:

      When you deal with a disease that half a billion people have gotten, the outliers have a way of adding noise to the actual trends. When it comes to the “vaccine,” it gets even worse. A coronovirus vaccine was tried back during SARS and it destroyed immune systems. Then Fauci sold the world on an RNA virus that would only need one part of the virus. RNA vaccines were “tested” for years but the COVID jab was tested for weeks and an RNA vaccine for SARS wasn’t really tested at all. Now we get to experience long-term studies for the rest of the century.

      Any new virus with no human immunity and high transmissiblity is going to kill a lot of people. We had the opportunity to focus on protecting the elderly and immunocompromised and instead locked kids up and put old people back into nursing homes because of medicare rules. Even the vaccine has a low cost-benefit ratio for older people. Instead, we’re going to give it to babies now.

    It’s snowing!

    • lyn5 says:

      The temp is 33 degrees in southern Orygun.

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        That storm system that caused havoc elsewhere moved in and stalled and had two and a half days of constant cold and often heavy rain and storms. The heat kicked yesterday and stayed on through the night. Tonight it is to be in the 30s’s so if there is any moisture left we might just join you in snow in May.

        • swanspirit says:

          They had to cancel Spring Fest in Ocean City Maryland. We had, and are still having what pretty much amounts to a Nor-Easter. Heavy rain, high winds, lower temperatures, flooding, etc etc.

      • taw46 says:

        Oh my, it feels like 97° here. 🥵

        • lateblum says:

          It’s in the upper 50’s here. But by Wednesday it’s supposed to be 89°. Hah! I really hate mid-July.

          • Mt.Laurel says:

            Especially when mid-July hits in May.
            I would much rather have March in May and June than those sweltering humid days.

          • lateblum says:

            Me too!

          • elliesmom says:

            We’re in the high 50s low 60s here now, too. Going to be in the low 80s by the end of the week. It makes me happy I got most of the heavy duty outside work done. It will cool down again. It’s time for 80s all the time yet. Just a little taste of summer. 🙂

    Has anyone watched Gaslit on Starz? Both my daughters told me about and I just started watching, Julia Roberts plays Martha MItchell during the Watergate years

    • lyn5 says:

      I only watched the first 12 minutes.

    • Anthony says:

      Mr. & Mrs. Mitchell lived in my building at that time. I was still living at home then, and have many stories I’d love to share about her “erratic” (really smart and self protective) behavior at that time. I thought she was just another tipsy drunk who talked too much back then, but in retrospect can see she was keeping herself safe from harm by remaining a public face in the news. In the end, they got her.

      The FBI also doesn’t use textbook entrapment on liberal protesters to direct them into an area, let them in and then prosecute them for “insurrection” by walking around.

    This is the most recent comment I saw on my “Nextdoor” app. It was a response to someone who voiced opposition to the pro-abortion rallies being held around town . . .

    ” How many of you alleged “pro-lifers” think capital punishment is a great idea? How many of you complain about your taxes because teachers make too much, too many people are using SNAP, too many kids are running around unsupervised, think it’s okay to put immigrant kids in cages, don’t see a problem with cops shooting unarmed or retreating people, including kids? How many of you “tsk-tsk” single mothers, and tell others that poverty is their own moral failing, that if they wanted to earn more money they should have went to college, think homeless people are an absolute scourge on your neighborhoods (and property values), complain about our “welfare state” as you gleefully support politicians that fight for corporate welfare and drastic reductions on huge corporations and the mega-wealthy?
    You are NOT “pro-life.”
    You are “pro-birth.”
    You don’t give a shit about ANYONE except your own deluded and disgusting selves.”

    • lyn5 says:

      Does this person realize Democrats are the party of wealthiest Americans?

      • lateblum says:

        This person doesn’t “need to know” this. He’s a democrat. That’s all he needs. I swear one of my acquaintances said to me, “If you’re not a democrat you shouldn’t live here”.
