Tally the First!
Ouch! WHO’S THAT??????????????????
That’s Diego Forlan, desertflower, a Uruguayan footballer (well, soccer-ball-kicker) who reduces Tally to a shriveling wreck every time she lays eyes on a pic of him
Then I guess we won’t see any more comments from Tally tonight.
Not until she recovers, Japa – you know:
Just left a reply to you on an earlier thread, a gazillion congratulations on your job news, absolutely thrilled for you.
Congrats on any good job news, japa! My husband’s STILL looking….Phoenix is a big city, but a podunk town. May have to send the Mister off somewhere without us for work…if he can get it.
So glad to hear you have good news! That’s wonderful:)
Rev Al’s website has a link to jobs every Friday. I thin it’s Politics nation.com. He said he will have links every Friday. Hope this helps. If I have the name wrong you can watch his show this coming Friday and he will give you the link.
I knew Tally turned to mush for a handsome footballer..this is the one??!!!!!!! Tally has GREAT TASTE in men (I knew she would). Wonder if she’d share? I’d be really easy to share with…I’m very married, but I’m NOT BLIND! Cloning should be legal…that’s all I have to say about that:) I could have some seriously good dreams tonight….Nice job, Tally:) No arguments from me.
Oh crikey Desertflower, if you want to ask Tally for a share of Diego ……. good luck
I just want to LOOK! She can’t get too crazy about that!……can she?
(Oh yes she can)
I’ll share Diego, as long as he comes and plays for the Galaxy. Hey, I girl can hope!
The only one I won’t share doesn’t play footy, is tall, incredibly sexy, British, dark hair, blue eyes, a smile that would melt glaciers, and has the sexiest voice ever. I have to draw the line somewhere…. Besides, he won’t have the energy to be shared when I get finished.
Pic, please! I want to see who you WON’T share!
darker hair. much darker. pretty much black.
and doesn’t look like a ferret.
However, he doesn’t do comedy normally – but is funny when given the opportunity.
Now you’re just being mean.
Okay, I need better clues here. Actor? English/Scottish/Welsh? Come on woman, help me out here!
Ah jeez Tally, narrow it down a bit! Youngish? Oldish? Have I ever heard of him?
Now I’m going to be dreaming about this mystery man all night, gotta go sleep! First thing in the morning I’ll check to see if you put me out of my misery!
Night everyone, see you tomorrow
I’m pretty sure you have.
I think I know who Tally’s “one who won’t be shared” is, cuz I have a crush on the man too! He is FOINE! His initials? RA; and he’s all that AND a bag of chips (as in potato, not you Ms. Chips! If I knew how to post a daggone picture, the mystery would be solved.
OUR PBO HAS THAT GUY BEATEN BY A MILE! NO COMPARISON!
Isn’t my WC2010BF gorgeous? How can Republicans be ashamed of the human body when it is such a work of ART?
I hope you’re not suggesting that Diego is a superior form of art to this:
Oh Chips…. don’t scare me like that!
Wait! If this is art:
Why isn’t this?
I wonder why no one has offered him an underwear modeling contract? Curiouser and curiouser.
I have NO idea. But I wear these on Saturdays (or whatever day he’s playing):
NICE! I approve.
For a brief moment there Chips – a very, very brief moment – I thought you wore them for Willard Romney. I guess I’d better stop trying to speed read my way through.
For that, VC, you deserve this:
Ouch! That hurts! Did you notice that it was only for a VERY brief moment, that I was reading quickly, and that.. aaam, ahum I admitted my error in a timely fashion. Extenuating circumstances have got to be worth something!
That can’t be the scariest photo of Rooney you could find is it?
Well, there’s this:
That photo is BEGGING to be captioned!
Always reminds me Desperate Dan:
Get a haircut boy.
My ***cough*** is back again:
What on earth is Rooney pulling out of his ass?
Tally, wow are yup able to chips’ posts that trend right ? I don’t see a reply button.
I smell a conspiracy here.
LOL. That’s mean Tally. Though it does seem looney rooney is trying to pull something out of his a… It sure ain’t any goals.
See? Even the earth wants to kiss him.
extraordinary pain in 3.. 2.. 1..
His baggy is longer than that. I think they wear bloomers.
Chips! That was so EASY! She said she would share Diego…and I didn’t have to even beg
Very strange Desertflower, very strange – sounds like she’s found someone new. But who?? This hunk??
/runs for airsick bag
I dunno Tally, he could be Diego’s dad!
I don’t think there’s any chance of that kind of DNA being remotely found in Newt’s linage. Not ever.
In fact, Newt (and the rest of the GOP) are proof that evolution not only exists, but works in reverse as well.
MY STOMACH WAS FINE UNTIL I SAW THIS…PASS THE BAGGY PLEASE!..:(
Meet the Tiffany want to be President. Since he calls President Obama the foodstamp President, I will call him the Tiffany want to be President.
I always think of Aunt Esther from “Sanford and Son” when I see his photo. He really is a beady eyed fool!
This one?? I don’t know how to post the pic
Nope. I’m over him.
However, he will always have a spot in my heart.
And Gerry’s eyes are green.
I’m trying here! He’s pretty handsome …..
Gerry’s been on my list forever. Since Mrs Brown. He’s just not #1.
hugh fucking grant ?
The dwarf guy from The Hobbit? Sorry to butt in but I’m intrigued.
Nooooooooooo! Just sprayed my screen with my tea!!!!!!!
Someone here is so warm – they’re on fire.
Colin Forth/Firth/Farth – that guy?!?
Wait. If it’s the other Colin F – Farrell – your punishment for calling an Irish lad English is 15,000 push-ups!
Walking on Sunshine is so warm, she’s ON THE SURFACE OF THE SUN.
There are 13 Dwarves.
HAAHAHAHA! Richard Armitage???? If he’s the one, I owe ot all to my sleuth daughter:)
Is it him??? If yes, congratulations mini Desertflower!!!!!!
Is this him?
Congrats to Walking on Sunshine and desertflower’s sleuth daughter!!!
Wooooooooot!!!!! Congratulations sleuths!!! Jeez, I wasn’t even luke warm
Yeh! All that lurking has paid off!!! I’m very excited to see the movie. I just saw part of The Two Towers on TV tonight. Loved these books….and now movies all my life.
Now I’m trebly embarrassed, I thought Walking on Sunshine was kidding when she mentioned dwarfy hobbity things.
YEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He’s a handsome gent! I’m not so sure how i feel about my daughter sleuthing men so well:) Gorgeous woman that she is! You have excellent taste, Tally. Excellent AHHHHHHHHHHH. I can sleep now….wondering why I there isn’t a “reply” to every post though….????
Thanks desertflower, glad you approve.
And it just means your daughter is smart and has great taste like her Mum.
I keeps my ears and eyes open Chipsticks!
(On a different note, like desertflower I am also running into a bit of a glitch with not being able to reply directly)
Morning Chips Chica! Just to let you know you’re not alone in the ‘dunce’ corner – I also thought Walking on S WAS kidding and had a good laugh (*whisper* at Tally’s expense. Now I’ve got to mentally apologize to Tally, while hoping she hadn’t heard my laughter at WoS supposed wittiness).
Okay, having said goodnight from my laptop, I’ve snuck back on my iPad in the hope of seeing the mystery solved … and amk’s rather impassioned guess has – quite literally – caused me to howl, very very very very loudly.
Tally. Stop the suspense RIGHT NOW! All of us are waiting with bated breath! (So happy that I wasn’t THAT off course with Mr. Butler!)
Clues please………….We need to sleep tonight you know:) Chips even whipped out the IPad…..
Thank you Desertflower, this is outrageously intolerable. Tally? WHO IS HE?
This guy could be the twin of that other guy. Mebbe Tally has a thing for twins ?
/ducks and runs
ohhh another good one… go chipschica
Have a safe trip home, sexy man.
His facial expression looks like he is preoccupied. A penny for his thoughts. (Or a million)
Over the past 20 years, nearly three-fourths of human-caused emissions came from the burning of fossil fuels. This statistic is a reminder that we must invest in more sustainable sources of energy and use our energy resources as efficiently as possible. One way we’re doing this is by driving innovation in the renewable energy sector. The other way is by improving the energy sources we are already using.
As the largest domestically-produced source of energy here in the U.S., coal is used to generate about half of our nation’s electricity. So how can we make traditional energy sources like coal cleaner and safer for all Americans?
Enter carbon capture utilization and storage, or CCUS — a process that focuses on capturing CO2 emissions from sources such as coal-fired power plants and either reusing it or storing it so it will not enter the atmosphere. The commercial success of CCUS depends on developing more affordable technologies, since the cost of capturing CO2 from power plants is currently too high for wide-scale implementation.
What do WalMart, Coca-Cola, Sysco, and Whole Foods have in common?
They’re leading the pack when it comes to hydrogen and fuel cells.
The Energy Department’s “Business Case for Fuel Cells 2011″ report illustrates how top American companies are using fuel cells in their business operations to advance their sustainability goals, save millions of dollars in electricity costs, and reduce carbon emissions by hundreds of thousands of metric tons per year.
Ms. Chips… look at those blog stats again Getting close to another milestone!
I feel an $8 appeal for Obama/Biden 2012 coming on!!!! Thanks Desertflower
Wasn’t $7 just a month back ? Go Chip$.
Thank$ amk!! Are you in Kenya yet?
Leaving in another 15 hours. From tomorrow, I will be blogging from that birt sert place for a week. And it’s going to cost me with mobile blogging. I blame you.
But if you find the burt sert think of how much Orly will pay you – it’ll cover ALL your mobile costs!
LOL. Good one. I think I’ll gouge trumpster.
Ah yeah, almost forgot the guy with the ginger cat on his head – just draw a burt sert with crayons and send it to him, he’ll probably send you back $10 million and immediately call a press conference. “Folks, I have BIG news.”
Safe journeys Amk — LMAO @ birt sert
Welcome, love Friendly reminder…..we have work to do! I’m feeling that too!
I’m just now watching the video of him in the asian restaurant. For the life of me I can’t remember another candidate in recent time who acknowledged the asian population like this. I may have forgotten, but I don’t think it ever happened before.
And the way he takes the time to say hello, shakes hands and pose for photos with every single patron and then also the kitchen and wait staff – he’s one of a kind. I kept thinking, can you imagine W doing something like this? I’m going to have to try that restaurant out just for fun, see if they hung a photo or framed the autographed menu.
He’s a people’s president! I’m sure you’ll find those momentos hanging there.
No I can’t imagine W doing that. He’ld be getting his hand spritzed every 2 seconds. Definitely can’t see Splattorum doing that. But I wouldn’t be surprised if Robme doesn’t search out a place to try it out. You know how he loves to copy everything PBO does. (such a loser)
On those very rare occasions where I can stand to listen to Robme speak for a whole excruciating minute, my hand reflexively goes to my forehead and signs the letter L for Loser hehehe
HE just brings out the best in this gal
So when re they going to get a new AF1 ? Dreamliner, nudge, nudge.
That last pic of him climbing the steps is awesome.
It’d be pretty cool.
I don’t know. The 747 is sui generis.
I remember my father and younger brother and I cycling the 15 odd kilometers to Schiphol, Amsterdam in the summer of 1969 (I was 12) to look at and photograph these astounding birds.
My President is so damn fine….
My President is so damn lovable…
Our President is just plain awesome.
That’s my president
An East Sacramento Catholic high school recently received green energy updates that will make the school more efficient and teach students the importance of using renewable energy.
St. Francis High School recently added another California solar installation by completing a 253-kilowatt solar energy system in seven buildings, following campaigning, budgeting and planning for months to get the project up and running, Valley Community Newspapers reported.
The solar installation is expected to generate 31 percent of the school’s electricity and save the campus $1 million in energy costs over the next 20 years, the source stated. Environment California Research & Policy Center recently released a report called “California’s Solar Cities 2012: Leaders in the Race Toward a Clean Energy Future,” which revealed the 72-year-old all-female college preparatory school is a leader in renewable energy in the state. Schools around the area are now expected to follow suit and save themselves, and the state, money.
Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson praised efforts to make the school more energy efficient in the State of the City address at the city’s Convention Center, stating that the school’s commitment to making the campus more energy efficient is an example of how solar energy investments can be a great business decision for a property owner, create green jobs and improve the environment in the process.

The picture after the Bellevue video is like…..wow…..GQ magazine material……what a face, what a smile….President Obama is so handsome!
Wow…Did you guys see this picture (last one) of Michelle’s impact on some of the people that met her..
Ah wow, just gorgeous, I’m choking up all over again. Thank you so much LOL, just added it to the post.
Gret pics LOL. For once, I’d like to see the eyes of the damned dog.
Me too…if it wasn’t for his tail I wouldn’t know which side was which
Wow, thanks, LOL. That is beautiful.
Is anyone watching RM Show on MSNBC on the Benton Harbor take over? This is absolutely disgraceful. How can a Gov assign someone to take over a local government. Folks this is what happens when you DON’T VOTE and VOTE FOR REPUBLICANS!
is there anything that the Justice Department can do about this…
the folks of Benton Harbor did not vote for this…
They did when MI voted in a slew of repubs in 2010. Now, of all these idiots, Snyder was supposed to be a moderate, but the signs were there.
Folks voted Walker in tooo……but as you see he is on the recall….
but i think Benton Harbor will need some help from the Justice department…
And the GOP says they don’t want big government. I don’t know what you would call big government if this is not it! More like a dictatorship. Taking a donated park donated to the people in perpetuity and giving it to a private enterprise that would make money off
the people’s park.

POTENZA, Italy (Reuters) – Italian police said on Friday they had seized about $6 trillion worth of fake U.S. Treasury bonds and other securities in Switzerland, and arrested eight Italians accused of international fraud and other financial crimes.
The operation, co-ordinated by prosecutors from the southern Italian city of Potenza, was carried out by Italian, Swiss and U.S. authorities after a year-long investigation, an Italian police source said.
It began as a investigation into mafia loan-sharking, but gradually expanded as prosecutors used telephone and computer intercepts to unearth evidence of illegal activity surrounding Treasury bonds.
The fake securities, worth more than a third of U.S. national debt, were seized in January from a Swiss trust company where they were held in three large trunks.
Okay, this should Not go overlooked! It might have collapsed our market, if they were not caught.
Yeah, I tweeted that y’day via a BBC piece. 6 trillion ? Imagine the chaos.
Six trillions? Wow!
equal to a third of our debt… holy crap…. I hope they’re checking to see if Can’tor had any contact with these people.
A penny for your thoughts.
LOVEEEEEEE this….how koooool is he!!
Oh. My. Goodness. Mat please.
Ah, Seattle. He was a very little boy when he and his momma lived here… So it’s home is a sense… The smell of the rain, the green, the mountains and the Sound… Deep impressions.
This is from this trip?
Hi LunarSea, yep, that’s from the airport tonight (when he was heading back to DC). Added it to the post with the others.
nice. I can’t tell if he looks pensive or just tired… He’ll be back east pretty late. Must be exhausting.
I thought he sounded exhausted at tonight’s fundraiser, Lunarsea. What a grueling schedule he had the last few days, I hope he gets some seriously good rest over the weekend.
It’s time for POTUS to go home, be with his family and get some rest. I started to say, maybe go play some golf, but it isn’t warm enough for that. I hate to see him having to do so much running from this place to that place to raise money, but I guess you have to do what you got to do.
His schedule has been insane recently, Anniebella, but I suppose he knows best what he’s physically capable of handling – but yeah, I want to see the weather warm home so he can play some golf and relax. Although, I tried golf a couple of times and it was anything but relaxing
You probably played golf like this.
How to play golf. http://t.co/NPRwd5nY— amk (@amk4obama) February 18, 2012
**chuckle** Suddenly had this vivid picture of you running after a little white ball and waving a skinny stick. Not a very ‘relaxing’ picture.
Excuse me? In another life I would have been named Tigress Woods. Hey you, don’t even go there…..
Love that picture of POTUS.
Him walking with that umberalla, hand in his pocket, and like he has the weight of the world on his shoulder. Which he does.
seeing the wedding ring on his hand reminds me of this joke
Husband: Honey, this ring is too tight. It’s cutting off the circulation.
Wifey: That’s the idea, dear.
You’re outrageously BAD!!!!!
For anyone who is old enough to remember…this picture brings to mind that wonderful scene of Gene Kelly dancing and “singing in the rain” from the move of the same name. I used to watch that with my mother as a young child and it’s still one of my favorite scenes from a movie ever.
Thanks for posting it Chipsticks
I watched that movie with my mom too!!!! And I totally went there with that photo too!
Huge crush on Gene Kelly because of my mom!
Man who knows how to dance = SEXY.
I have to eat FOOD now. back later.
Yes. I was weaned on those old musicals. Used to think it was normal to burst into song..wherever, whenever. Had to be told to stop!!!
Going to hit the pillow now. Sweet dreams!
Because of President Obama Boeing got the contract to produce the next generation of military jet tankers. The Bushites and John McCain had it all set to go to the Europeans Airbus company. The jobs stayed in America with American workers.
A remember the wrangling he had to do to get that back from Airbus and how McCain & the southern congress critters screamed. Their non union shops would have been making parts for Airbus or something. Can’t remember the details now. I thought at the time he should have had a parade welcoming him back from that trip. Largest purchase ever at the airplane show in Europe.
I thought of that when listening to his speech at Boeing. A little comment he made that brought that incident straight to the front of my mind. He said (paraphrasing), ‘I will go anywhere to promote American products and bring manufacturing jobs back to America’.
It was buried in the speech and spoken without bluster. I was wishing he would just come right out and say something to the effect of, “Remember that trip I took to the Airplane Show in Europe….that you never heard about on the news…..” I can’t help but wonder if anyone knows….
But what often gets overlooked (on both sides of the Atlantic) is that a economically strong US is also an importer of European goods – this is particularly important to European countries like my own (the Netherlands) who basically live off of exports.
‘It was buried in the speech and spoken without bluster’
Reading that JUST brought to mind a potential contradiction in my own reaction to the President. I love him to death because he speaks to me like I am an adult. I love him beyond words that he doesn’t ‘act’, as in a drama, but his acts are very purposeful and productive both long and short term. However it just clicked that because he DOESN’T bluster – a fact I love – many voting ‘adults’ miss a lot of his accomplishments, and that’s not a good thing. I suddenly wish HE could MAKE them love him.
On second thought, I don’t. It’s THEM, not him! They need to LISTEN AND take him at his word.
- If Bin Laden is in Pakistan and I have credible info, I’ll go get him. Reaction = ‘naive’ Result = CHECKMARK
- I’ll end the war in Iraq. Reaction = ‘inexperienced’ Result = CHECKMARK
- I intend to get affordable healthcare to Americans. Reaction = ‘overreach’ Result = CHECKMARK
- I’ll broaden our position in Asia. Reaction = ‘unnoticed’ Result = CHECKMARK
Wake up America, this president doesn’t bluster. He is, and has ALWAYS been a man of his word! All we need to do is support, AND ENCOURAGE OTHERS to VOTE for him.
Yup. I hear exactly what you’re saying
I signed up for the Truth Team and got a Truth Team tipsheet email from Stephanie Cutter. There’s this p.s. at the end:
Here’s a fun fact: Did you know President Obama is Irish? Last year, he visited his ancestors’ town in Ireland and joked, “My name is Barack Obama, of the Moneygall Obamas, and I’ve come home to find the apostrophe we lost somewhere along the way.” So we created new “O’bama” shirts, just in time for St. Patrick’s Day.
OMG that’s so kewl.
They released one in ’08 as well, when we had just heard about the Irish ancestry, I wear mine every St. Paddy’s, get lotsa compliments on it, and lotsa laughs!
Meta, i don’t remember signing up but I ALSO found a tipsheet in my mail this morning. I think it’s great as it gives points and corroborating info that can be readily shared, saving me search time. I can already see myself using it on Twitter. Man, this campaign is terrific! Apart from having the BEST MAN FOR THE JOB, Dems deserve to win based on their organization, creativity and goals.
The umbrella picture?
Good evening all! It’s been a really hectic day at work
But now I’m home and can kick back and watch all the beautiful videos of my President!
I turned on Bill Maher, but that idiot Stephen Moore is grating on my nerves! Time to turn off the TV!
Stephen Moore has got to be the stupidest and most clueless “economist” – more like hack – it has ever been my misfortune to listen to.

Totally O/T but stuff like this is why I like to go look through this site:)

Will bookmark it desertflower. I have a pot of coconut oil in the bathroom. I melted it and mixed in a little essential oil of geranium and use it as a moisturizer. A little goes a long way. It is good stuff!
Bill–that is an important bit of news. Do you have any sources? That’s the kind of news to spread. Also, I saw a quote somewhere today that the CEO of General Motors said President Obama saved the industry and the country. Can’t find it now, anyone know where it is? Gotta’ send it forward—–thanks
It was a tweet from David Axelrod…I think it was in the Rise and Shine post from this morning.
It was from a report on last night’s CBS evening news. Check their website; they may still have it up.
When I was walking down the street today, at the northern edge of downtown, just after lunch, two very large dark green helicopters flew over, slowly, kind of in tandem; I don’t really think one was Marine One, as there was only a little bit of white on it, but they seemed as if they were flying escort maybe? I found it pretty thrilling, as I felt a tingly sense that PBO was up there! I liked it!
It’s CRITICAL that we NOT get over-confident or blase….BUT…
Is it me or do these 2012 repoooblicun presidential candidates just get worse and worse and ….it’s ………SURREAL.

I found out through TRMS show that Bob Dole was one of the earliest Ad men for Viagra. Can’t think about him or look at him in the same way again. It’s on the one hand very hilarious and on the other hand very very very very very gross and disturbing.

I just saw an ad paid for by the COC to kill Obamacare, running Mike Fitzpatrick. Said Obamacare will kill jobs. I cannot stand a blatant out and out lie. I may need to keep my TV off this year. I only had it on to view a couple shows highlighting Whitney Houston, so the mfs caught me off guard. God despises a liar and I surely hope they will see His wrath in short order. Good nite TOD.

Job well done, Sir. Have a safe trip home.
In its annual economic report to Congress released Friday, the White House forecast the economy would create 2 million jobs in 2012. That’s an average of 167,000 new jobs per month, up from the 1.8 million jobs created in 2011.
The report predicted a “moderate” economic recovery this year and sought to blame an unexpected downturn in 2011 on last summer’s debt-ceiling debacle in Congress.
The document says “self-inflicted wounds” from the debt-ceiling standoff contributed to weakness last year, which is being remedied by stronger growth this year.
Ah…bedtime:) See you all tomorrow…Thanks for the laughs and intrigue tonight. And the pictures….ALL of them!
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) threatened on Friday that he would recommend the White House make recess appointments of all 90 outstanding executive nominees if he did not receive cooperation from the GOP for confirmation through the Senate’s advise and consent function.
“If something doesn’t break here I am going to recommend to the president that he recess-appoint all of these nominees,” said Reid. “[E]very single one. It’s not as if there isn’t some way to respond to this.”
Most Republicans in the Senate remain furious with President Obama for his January recess appointments of several executive nominations — a move they say was a gross violation of the U.S. Construction.
Sure, why not?
Go Harry. They should Just do it. Like nike. Rethugs can go suck an egg, a rotten one at that,
What’s so awesome is I live like thirty minutes away from Everett. I feel so gratified that he visited this state and I wish I could go to Everett Boeing (a friend of mine works a mile away from Boeing in a manufacturing plant), and shake this wonderful presidents hand.

“Pretzel their Ignorance. Swat the Nuisance ” — xitne
I believe POTUS is the catalyst to shine a light on all our foibles, scabs — blatant or hidden, banditry and/or pretender. Their Jaywalking is done.
It might get rough in the next few months: their damn old scab is going to get all nasty & oozing w/ venom.
At that time, quick-quick, find TOD shelter. As usual: stand smart and pretzel their ignorance. Every Single. Day: Swat the Nuisance!

Earlier this week, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced that the federal government recovered $4.1 billion in taxpayer dollars from individuals and corporations attempting to steal Medicare and Medicaid payments to which they were not entitled.
What’s $4.1 billion? It is the largest amount of money ever recovered, by far, in the history of the programs since they were established in 1965.

Good Morning, TOD ‘early birders’! I’m sneaking in ‘early’ this Saturday morning to hopscotch over the last two weeks to try and spot any family news I might have missed. :lol; A Happy Saturday morning to one and all. A quick peek out my window a half hour ago showed blanketing snow, so since I don’t have to go anywhere till later I’ll forget the driveway and hole up here.

He is a snotty little jerk.
