Good work, CarolMae. I have been enjoying your pictures.
Thank you Mary.
My goodness…a record # of 1sts for you! Congrats
Thank you, I’m not keeping track.
Lately you’ve been on mission about being#1! Congrats.
Nice work, PF. First, and with two more letters than I could manage
Oops, didn’t scroll up far enough, but congrats anyway!
Congrats, Carolmae! I looooove me some President Obama!
Thank you, me too.
So there is this:
Historic first woman director of the Secret Service. The article as a whole makes me a little nervous about our president. With threats against him so high, this makes the whole Service sounds sloppy.
They look quite comfortable to me!
Hmm, and we have to twitter our pics…
Ya, I know.
Politico: Obama to talk immigration with Telemundo bit.ly/11JPwo3— Jeffrey Levin (@jilevin) March 27, 2013
Nice. Hitting the ground hard.
gopolitico sez colbear’s sister is even in polls with that tail chaser. Could it really happen that she wins?
One would hope she wins! Can you imagine the trail chaser’s and the GOP’s arrogance were he to make it back in?
If he wins – after what he did – the GOP has turned completely 180 degrees in their view of “morality”. Seems if the black guy in the white house respects all their “family values” – the GOP thinks adultery/absence from government and abandoning wife & children is fine – not to mention lying about it all.
Now – what we need is President Obama to become anti abortion anti women and pro ultrasounds for no good reason – and the GOP will start to elect pro choice politicians – why didn’t anyone think of that!
Aww, the Black couple with the sextuplets have a show in TLC!!!! It’s on now! She was initially pregnantt with twins, but she lost them at 19weeks. So they prayed on it and got pregnant again & doctor told them there was 6 heartbeats. Dad’s first thought was “wow, did I pray too much?m
I tell ya what, the difference between this family, even aside from the obvious, and the other “multiple” family reality shows is huge in terms of lifestyles
OMG! $800 for food, $350 for diapers & wipes, $200-300 for extra items!!!! Total monthly budget…$1450!!!!
How old are they? As usual, I haven’t heard about them.
the show was on OWN last year. TLC is airing those episodes now. I haven’t read about a new season. but at this point, they should be at least 2 maybe 3 years old
Good for them.

What is up with these old fart designers taking their swap at our First Lady. Now it’s Da La Renta running his mouth. I was fishing over there at Huff Puff and I saw a article were he was talking about FLOTUS. He said he doesn’t worry about dressing movie stars and First Ladies, his clothes is for the average woman on the street. A lying bastard he is, because the average woman on the street can’t afford his clothes. He said something about FLOTUS wearing a sweater when she met the Queen. To me these designers are just piss, no not piss, they are mad that our wonderful First Lady won’t waste her time with their designs. Oh yea, the Queen must didn’t mind the sweater, after all the President and First Lady went back to see the Queen and they spent the night in Buckingham Palace. Where is the class these designers profess to have?
Oh, he made a remark about what she wore when she met the Queen. The Queen asked her about her shoes ’cause she liked them. He is jealous. Don’t read that stuff on HuffPo unless you want to get made. Stay happy.
Believe me I got mad. But I’m better. Thanks. I don’t know what made me go over there to Huff Puff anyway.
Good. Don’t go to bed mad.
I wish I could tell these clowns to back off of FLOTUS. I love and respect FLOTUS, and it’s not because of what kind of clothes she wear. It’s because of the intelligent,caring, loving, funny, kind person she is.
Nah… Oscar http://t.co/ddPMb6dYoQ— CarolMae (@CarolMaeWY) March 27, 2013
This piece of crap looks like a two year old design it.
That’s exactly it. And the fact that she always looks stylish, put-together, elegant, appropriate and gorgeous is just an extra added bonus! They are jealous and mad that she doesn’t kowtow to them.
FLOTUS (to these critiques): Has been haters say wha…?
My response to Oscar.
Ahh Oscar. Don't bad-mouth FLOTUS cause she can't dress in your "reputation". What have you done lately? huff.to/WYdkWn— Nelson (@Yardarm756DD) March 24, 2013

May I edit @Yardarm756DD? MT: Ahh Oscar. Don't bad-mouth FLOTUS cause she [CHOOSES NOT TO] dress in your "reputation". …— Vick C. (@sonamie) March 27, 2013
Why the hell would FLOTUS want to be dressed by an old fart who designed for a bunch of old ladies. FLOTUS is young and today not yesterday like Oscar. Don’t be hatin’/
It’s all good!
Sour grapes. However, FLOTUS did not hold it against him when he made the sweater comment four years ago because she later wore a red dress that was designed by De La Renta’s son. She is about what is fresh, current, and youthful. She is helping young, relatively unknown designers, not kowtowing to the old has-beens who would have looked on her with disdain if pre-presidency days she had walked into their ateliers. Vera Wang said once wistfully, “I wish that she would give us a chance.” Michelle is the most famous woman inn the world; any designer would consider it a great coup to dress her. De La Renta should take the stench of his disappointment away and retire to enjoy his millions. FLOTUS does not need hiim.
And isn’t it interesting, Anniebella, that when Michelle Obama wears sweaters, she actually revives their popularity. She has turned an ordinary piece of clothing–the sweater–into something versatile, beautiful and always appropriate. I look at my own sweaters in a new light since she’s been FLOTUS. I can’t say that I have ever been inspired by anything De La Renta ever designed. It galls him that Michelle Obama has such enormous influence on the real fashion world–what ordinary people wear.
jackie, I see FLOTUS fashion influence every where, the sweater, the sleeveless dresses, the belts, and other things. The bottom line is that these designers feelings are hurt because this First Lady has ignored them. How dare she ignore the great Oscar De La Renta, that is what is in his head. Who do she think she is? Don’t she know who I am, I’ve design for Jackie, Nancy, Barbara, Laura,Hillary and to that I say, you will not be designing for Michelle.
For me . . . And everyone else . . .

Indeed. He’s too lazy to go anywhere outside. Would rather sit on the court bench with nothing to say, sleeping all day long while arguments are being made.
I’m about 2,500 miles away.
Glad you are safe!
YoOOO. Listening to these argument is quite an eye opener. Scalia is trolling hard on that bench. It’s would be humorous if it was not so dangerous.

Question — What does Y.O.L.O. mean? Saw it on signs directed at scalia today.
THANK YOU! been trying to figure it out all day.
I should have refreshed & would have seen your answer – thank you
I’m glad you asked that question – cause I don’t know either – can it be “You Only Live Once” which is all I can find on google
darn, I didn’t think to “google;” I’ll plead brain fog due to illness…
Thanks for asking. I did not know what it meant either but was too embarrassed to ask.

// The Obama presidential campaign was an innovation in American politics and American design. For the first time, a candidate used art and design to bring together the American people—capturing their voices in a visual way. The Design Director of the Obama campaign, Scott Thomas, has collaborated with artists and designers to create Designing Obama, a chronicle of the art from the historic campaign.
Get the inside story on how design was used by the campaign, trace the emergence of ideas and images over the course of the election, and scope out the amazing art created by artists and grassroots supporters. It’s the definitive account of the vision of thousands of people across the United States—all in one volume.
Using the same grassroots fundraising model as the campaign, the book was created through Kickstarter, a new company dedicated to funding creative endeavors through small donations by committed individuals. Using the Obama fundraising model was the perfect way to insure the book’s quality and integrity. People around the country supported the book, funded its creation, and changed the way we think about publishing. Now you can be part of the revolution. The 336-page hand-crafted book is hardbound with an embossed sleeve, and printed in a vivid six-color process. //
@stuntbox @petesouza that would be an incredible book. @petesouza, though we are sold out I'd be happy to send a personal copy.— (@simplescott) January 26, 2013
The book is sold out!
wonder if they will print additional copies – this is the first time I am even hearing about this book. how did I miss it
Another good point made by Elena Kagan, another great woman! Thank goodness these vacancies appeared early enough that PBO had the votes to confirm them.
Roberts kids are adopted. He didn’t procreate?
Thomas and his lovely wife do not have children.
Justice Elena Kagan was so on point today about marriage is to preserve procreation……no couple over the age of creating children as a couple should be allowed to get married and those that can no longer or choice to no longer have children be required to divorce? What is the purpose of marriage if you are not constantly creating children. Only Jim Bob and Michelle Dugger would be allowed to be married.
And THAT’S a frightening thought!
We have 7 billion people in this world. I think we’ve got “be fruitful and multiply” covered.
It’s beyond stupid, jojo, and a totally unsustainable premise. The reasons why people marry is not the justice’s business and there is no conceivable way you could screen marriage licenses based on a couple’s fertility –it would effectively end marriage as an institution. It’s depressing that such a level of idiocy goes on in the Supreme Court. The only people with common sense on SCOTUS seem to be the more liberal ones. Scalia, Alito, Thomas and even Kennedy seem like dolts.
Lights out at yardarms berthing compartment!
Sorry I have been mostly out of touch all day, but has anyone commented on this yet?
Yes, I’ve read about this too. I am concerned that there is a leak in the Secret Service. I’m hoping the new director will tighten and clean the service up. There is no excuse for this knowledge to get out to a journalist. How else would they know? Those “journalists” aren’t true investigators, they are following up on someone’s tip. We learned a lot about the SS when the president went to Colombia and some of them behaved so reprehensibly. Evidently it had become a good time boys’ club when the president traveled. I think some more heads need to roll in the service.

Btw- it’s in the 40s here in Florida, cold as a Witches…
……tit in a brass bra? Sorry. It’s early. Thanks for the weather report…I better call the parentals, They will NOT be happy about this cold weather FL is having….stay warm, Jovie, and hope that at least it’s sunny outside. Near 90 in PHX…perfect weather this time of year….
90%? So early in the day? Lord help you all (by averaging the 90 with Jovie’s 40 and sending it my way). Good morning, everyone!
Morning, vc:) It’s not 90 right NOW, it’s only 5am…but the days have been in the 80′s to 90. Perfect weather….it’s dry now, so it isn’t oppressive….July and August is something else all together…but then again, in July and August we’d PRAY for 90! At least it’s not snowing! We’ve had THAT, too!!
Phew, Df! I knew you were up EARLY so the 90 figure surprised me. How’s the cold treating you today? Did it wake you up or are you up to camp by the TOD village gate?
The cold MADE me get out of bed this damn early! I couldn’t breathe lying down, so I thought I’d better get out of bed! It quite annoying actually….figures I got this now, I’m on vacation. No sane person would ever get up at 4am while they’re on vacation! So no…I’m not camping out at the TOD gate….this morning, it was all self preservation!
Oh rats! I was thinking it would have been tapering off by now, DF. Have you been/are you going to the doctor? What are you taking?
NAH. Not a doctor thing…just an annoying thing. I’m not much of a pill/ medicine taker….I put Vick’s under my nose, have tissues nearby, and occasionally pop a Sudafed. And Vitamin C…..
Are you a user of lemons? I have no science/medical knowledge so I’m not prescribing but lemons always, always help me through a cold. I keep the Vick’s handy too, just in case.
Love lemons…limes (especially in my gin and tonic!)….kidding Of course, this COULD be just allergies from the blooming mulberry tree on my back patio…..I think that thing gets me every year:)
Aaaah. I do my allergies in the fall – don’t know why. Well whatever, don’t let this spoil the entire spring break.
Good morning everyone. What a beautiful moon last night!
Well, it’s official. On Morning Joe this morning, GOPolitico’s Mike Allen reports tha gun control is dead. It is Barack Obama’s fault. He did not act fast enough to get legislation on the floor. I mean even Bush got the Patriot Act through both chambers 45 days after 9/11. This President shows no leadership. Barnacle was disgusted. Ughhhh!
Actually, Lb4, this is actually encouraging. If GoPolitico says something, the opposite must be true.
Barnicle reminds me of a male “bar fly “
Good description. Spouting off about sports and his pointless political views.
the same people repeatedly reported that ACA was dead – forget how many times. We just celebrated the 3rd anniversary of ObamaCare last week.
I don’t know WHY they are given such credence; may be because they never shut up and material is needed to fill the airwaves. /smh/
Yup. Stop wasting your time and energy with these proven idjits.
Egg – sack – lee. Morning, Afternoon, Night old boy! (Take your pick.)
Yes it’s King Obama’s fault. To hell with what the GOP told Mike Allen to say.

McKeesport Area’s AP environmental science class receive input letter from Obama administration
The internet around the world has been slowed down in what security experts are describing as the biggest cyber-attack in history.
A row between a spam-fighting group and hosting firm has sparked retaliation attacks flooding core infrastructure.
It is having an impact on widely used services like Netflix – and experts worry it could escalate to affect banking and email services.
Five national cyber-police-forces are investigating the attacks.
Spamhaus, a group based in both London and Geneva, is a non-profit organisation which aims to help email providers filter out spam and other unwanted content.
To do this, the group maintains a number of blocklists – a database of servers known to be being used for malicious purposes.
Recently, Spamhaus blocked servers maintained by Cyberbunker, a Dutch web host which states it will host anything with the exception of child pornography or terrorism-related material.
Sven Olaf Kamphuis, who claims to be a spokesman for Cyberbunker, said, in a message, that Spamhaus was abusing its position, and should not be allowed to decide “what goes and does not go on the internet”.
Spamhaus has alleged that Cyberbunker, in cooperation with “criminal gangs” from Eastern Europe and Russia, is behind the attack.
Cyberbunker has as yet offered no reply to the BBC when contacted directly.

PHOENIX (AP) — Hundreds of pages of police reports in the investigation of the Tucson shooting rampage that wounded former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords are being released Wednesday, marking the public’s first glimpse into documents that authorities have kept private since the attack more than two years ago.
The Pima County sheriff’s department will release an estimated 2,700 pages of records from the January 2011 shooting at a meet-and-greet event outside a grocery store that killed six people and wounded Giffords and 11 others. The documents include transcribed interviews with witnesses, various police reports and other records, and could provide new insight into how the shooting occurred.
