Congrats on first
Cautiously, in case of tricks…
Heh…no tricks this time. Congrats maryl and PFWHI on 1st place tie!
Would I?!?! LP is our trickster! Hiya Mary!
Hiya … Chips???…**still being very cautious”…is it noon in Hawaii yet?
Good one! I forgot this was April fools day!
Congrats to you and Maryl! Hope all is going well with you, PFI.
What a great day for the kids. Jessica Sanchez, Kid president and young Donovan being the stars
I even loved how the Easter Bunny put his/her hand over his/her heart during the national anthem, this morning! That was a cute photo, too.
Ed Henry, Knoller, Chuck Todd, John Boner, Trump, etc all secretly wish they were little Donovan.
But we wouldn’t wish their tears and snot on OUR Prez!
Socialist!!! Took another kid’s egg & “redistributed” it to the crying “taker” kid, instead of handing it over to Koch bros to fatten their accounts further. What is this world coming to? Impeach Obama!!! Socialist socialist socialist!!!
In some circles, they were probably chanting something very similar… sadly.
Eek. Accidentally saw one minute of Throw Up with Chris Hayes before I realized it was on. Hope that minute didn’t count toward his viewership.
Chris and Luke and Chuck and Jake should all run off and do a road tour for Scholastic Books or something, based on their overall maturity level, averaged, of about 10, no offense to real 10-year-old little scholars.
LMAO @”Throw up with C.H.”
I almost did a little, sorry to mention, before I turned the remote right-side-up and clicked on it!

Those kids and parents in the audience look like Obama’s Secret Garden. (Damn – what’s in this wine? It’s delicious.)
Powerful stuff, if you have 10 minutes…or bookmark it.

I’m missing one of the geek groups. I have Star Trek Next Gen, Harry Potter and Star Wars. What’s the fourth one?
Lord of the Rings – Gandalf
Of course! Thanks – for some reason, I thought Gandalf was part of the Potter series. (And I just watched the Lord of the Rings trilogy a few months ago… I’ve never been good with names)
Gandalf, Dumbledore – they have a lot in common.

Bill O’Reilly told me you were a Socialist, and I didn’t want to believe him! (Who would????)

Boy, age 8, accidentally kills self with micro Uzi at Westfield MA Sportsman Club buff.ly/YOSrfA #2008 #mapoli #masen #DemandAction— RightWingWatch MA (@RWwatchMA) April 01, 2013
Yup. You can’t teach ‘em young enuff.
I remember this happened four to five years ago……it’s still devastating that a man, a father, would give a eight year old an uzi to play with.
It’s a sickness. Why would a parent want to expose their child to a deadly thing like an uzi? I wouldn’t even want a child to be able to recognize one, let alone handle it. What a sad set of circumstances.
Some folks shouldn’t be parents I guess.
Harrisburg suspect’s gun permit violated law
Less than a year after he was convicted of assaulting a neighbor, Anthony Charles Hardy received a concealed carry permit from the Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office, an approval that N.C. law prohibits.
Hardy – who authorities said fatally shot two of his neighbors before killing himself on Friday – received a concealed carry permit in September 2005, shortly after a prayer for judgment conviction for misdemeanor assault and battery, state records show.
According to N.C. law, a sheriff must deny a permit to an applicant who has been found guilty, received a prayer for judgment continued, or had a sentence suspended for a violent misdemeanor.
Cabarrus County Chief Deputy Paul Hunt said the employee who would have approved the permit application has since retired.
Disgusting and outrageous!
For the little ones…

gop today announced that it is changing its emblem from an elephant to a condom because it more accurately reflects the gop’s political stance.
A condom halts production, destroys the next generation, protects a bunch of pricks, and gives you a sense of security while you’re actually being screwed.
Damn, it just doesn’t get more accurate than that.
New #gop emblem=A condom. Destroys next generation, protects a bunch of pricks & gives you a sense of security while you're being screwed.— (@amk4obama) April 02, 2013

Can someone tell me how I get my notifications, when notifications isn’t letting me get to my notifications? I see the orange square, but nothing happens when I click on it.
Haha, just realized I will never know if anyone replies because I Can’t Get My Notifications.
The notifications button i very finicky. Right now, mine is refusing to consistently switch off after I look at messages.

A little off the beaten track here, but I have been enjoying this woman’s writing a lot. Rachel Held-Evans has a fascinating blog and just wrote a book, “A Year of Biblical Womanhood”, which I highly recommend. This is a great post about her decision this year for Lent to take her hate mail and turn it into origami. I will remember this the next time I am tempted to blast back at someone posting hateful stuff.
Good night all. Tomorrow is already today.
Good night, Yardarm!
Goodnight yardarm – tomorrow is almost gone as I see it

A not so happy Tuesday (snowing like crazy), but there is still this wonderful place to come to and all the amazing, talented folks who lift my spirits and make my day by sharing and believing!
All hail, Ms. Chips, for creating this amazing place that has saved my sanity from the inanity of the (crapforbrains) MSM!!
To Amk, LP, Yardarm, LL, VC, the Carols, Theo, Mary, Dudette, Hopefruit, JOB, UT, HK, FayPay, and so many others………..My eternal gratitude.
Mooooooorning Lynn, keep warm in that chilly weather of yours – and have a great week!
Thank you, dear one. Just got done brushing the snow off the wood splitter and covering the motor back up……YIPES!
Now that I have a cup of hot chocolate , a blankie and the lovely folks here at TOD to keep me warm, it WILL be a great week, Ms. Chips.
What ever did I do without YOU?!?!?!?!
Oh Lynn, you’ve had a busy morning dealing with that snow – you have earned your hot chocolate! Thank you for your lovely message, you’re a sweetheart. Keep warm!
All blessings to you and yours.
And to you and yours, Lynn – thank you so much.
