Soooo, there is someone in the village? I was wondering earlier. Hello CarolMae.
Hello VC. Beautiful day here.
I think there was/is a summer lull. I was off sight with my eye problems for a month. Still need to take it slow. :( How are you?
Glad to hear your eyes have been ‘treated’ and are on the mend. I am actually fine, ty 4 asking.
Good. Hope family is too. :grin:
I feel really silly coming in first when I just signed on. ;) What is Zillow? A new service we can trust to transfer info? Remember, my eyes are just now recovering with two very expensive eye drops. I’ve only been able to listen.
Seems like it’s just the two of us, and I can’t answer your question. I’m listening and watching, and I have to say things seem to be so slow in WordP these days – it takes AGES to get an response.
I thought it was just me out here in WY. And an iPad full of photos. I loaded it with more into the wee hours. I hate when I do that. I like mornings.
Zillow is a Real Estate Search site……..
Hello there – sneaking in between meetings. Zillow is a house pricing tool that let’s you check the prices of houses in your area, or desired area.
Thank you. Is that why POTUS is using it?
The interview is about housing, following up on his Phoenix speech. It’s an EXCELLENT interview. He’s doing a great job.
Yes, I saw the speech, recorded the Leno interview and heard great reviews from the East coast. Leno was on Lawrence and Jay seemed to genuinely like the President. :grin:
Are you surprise that Jay Leno like President Obama, I’m not. David Letterman, Jimmy Fallon also. The Obamas ( Barack and Michelle) are nice friendly people. :)
Jimmy Fallon and David Letterman like President Obama. The President haven’t been on Jimmy Kimmel show have he? FLOTUS have been on Kimmel show once. But I think most of them genuinely like POTUS . Except maybe Jon Stewart.
No, just thought I’d mention it.
Hello there, back at you, Theo! I found that Zillow interview interesting and very reflective of the President’s knowledge of the different aspects of his ‘job’.
Good day & Congrats Carol … Hi VC :)
If 20% of @BarackObama's twitter followers donated $3/month x 15 months = $314,207,865 to FUND #LandslideDEMS2014 — #PBO has earned it @OFA— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) August 07, 2013
Bottom line … #PBO has earned it!!
Yes We Can
Thanks Bob. I think I’m giving ten to #OFA? Is that what you mean?
Great that you are making the donation! Any amount helps, for sure!!
Was just trying to indicate the power of @BarackObama’s twitter followers – which I’ve yet to see @OFA leverage. If only 20 % of his followers were to donate only $3 per month for the next 15 months, they would raise more than 314 Million Dollars.
We tried to get them to launch #ADollarADay to @OFA – many times. If only 20 % of his current twitter followers did that for the next 15 months – it would be close to 3 BILLION Dollars.
Just hope that at some point it will click with the @OFA senior management (Jon Carson follows me on twitter and I’ve gently nudged him more than once :) ).
Will stick with an occasional nudge and maybe it will have a productive impact before Nov 2014.
#LandslideDEMS2014 – #PBO has Earned It!!
I’m going to tweet your numbers, Bobfr. There are so many good politicians we could help if everyone just chipped in a small amount each month. Your billion dollar amounts are an eye OPENER! Yowza!!!!!
If you give me something I could tweet or put on FB, I could do that. I don’t know how to word things and send them to the right sight. He has FB page too and so does #OFA at Barack Obama.
Feel free to copy & paste anything I post at TOD, Carol. I have no ‘pride of authorship’ and no need for attribution.
Thanks Bob. :)
Bobfr, slow progress is progress; congress is congress.
Listening to the Live interview of POTUS on housing. What an intelligent man!! He has a grasp of every single issue and makes sense all along the way. Very impressive.
Did I say POTUS was impressive? Not a big enough word!! Wow. His grasp of the issues, clarity and down-to-earth common sense is just amazing.
I could listen to him all day. He is amazing.
Oh, I missed that. Have to catch the video. :-(
PBO knows all about all—–is able to talk about anything in depth
Also like _illow (unable to type the letter after Y)—-daughter used often in house sear_h——-always easiest and best internet info re housing for sale
dotster – Good afternoon! Believe me, I’m the last person to give out most computer advice, but – although I’m not quite sure what your keyboard issue is – there are “virtual keyboards” (for Windows, at least) that you can download off the Internet. If that’s the issue, I know my son had trouble with certain letters and symbols on his actual keyboard and downloaded the virtual keyboard to use off his monitor, until he got his actual keyboard replaced! Again, who knows if any of this is correct or what you need, so I’ll just sign this “Anonymous in Illinois”!
Hellooooo ‘Anonymous in Illinois’! It’s so nice to see you are still enjoying yourself. :razz:
Hello, right back atcha, VC! I’m going to try lurking a bit (which is tough) from this point on (anonymously), while still enjoying myself! Gotta get a few things done, here in Illinois – Ha! Hope you are having a good week, too.
Yes, I am, though I’m in ‘to catch-up, or not to catch-up’ mode. I’ll decide by day’s end, I suspect, though I’m leaning heavily towards letting sleeping posts lie. ;)
Thanks for your reply—-I’ll try that—-and probably will need a new puter
I am sitting in my car waiting for a friend to get a new phone at the AT&T store. Do happy I can use my droid to see what is going on.
So guess which site I was on when this new thread came up? Zillow!!! What a co-inky dink. My sister is in the process of buying a home and I’m helping in her search.
Is the interview over? I hope UT or Chips posts it.
I missed POTUS taking the questions about housing. Maybe I can see him speaking to the troops.
Why are the WHPC complaining about POTUS being on Leno Show?
Annieb, haven’t you grasped yet that complaining is what the WHPC does best – certainly better than they do reporting?
Hey anniebella, it’s probably because his interview was better than all of theirs put together.
Job well done, Jay
*Their tears nourish me* – too funny!

There is now ONE national, health related #YouthFitness program! Get your school involved! presidentialyouthfitnessprogram.org #LetsMove— President's Council (@FitnessGov) August 07, 2013
We knew they would go caca over this. I didn’t even bother clicking the stories. Check out the misleading headings over at MSNBC website:
Why did Putin defy US? Because he can [Gazelle: Oh really!!!]
Analysis: What does Russian leader Vladimir Putin get from giving temporary asylum to Edward Snowden? [Gazelle: Nada!]
Snubbed: Obama nixes meeting with Putin in Russia [Gazelle: Snubbed? Your vocab is severely lacking!]
Obama on Leno: We won’t be terrorized by threats
We have so many Tea Party readers and followers. To lose all zero of them due to our September cover would be devastating.— EBONY (@EBONYMag) August 07, 2013
Good for them, to get it right out there!

@allanbrauer @NerdyWonka As fits the elephants …— Toon Moene (@ToonMoene) August 07, 2013
Hey Jacqueline, I don’t remember what does ICYMI mean. Thanks!
Hey – “In Case You Missed It” !
Thanks so much. I kept seeing it, and tried to figure it out.
I looked up its meaning, a while back!
Thanks. Boy that’s me, I’ve missed much. ;)
[99ts, if you're still around & not asleep, I say that's a waste of red wine! LOL! :) ]:
The spurned mistress of Australian Liberal National Party MP Peter Dowling has written to parliament “detailing their sexual relations and pointing out where she believes the backbencher has misused his entitlements,” The Australian reports.
“The letter, tabled in parliament yesterday, follows the revelation Mr Dowling had sent text messages to the woman of pornographic images of himself, including one in which his penis is in a glass of red wine.”
The Brisbane Times has Dowling’s reaction: “I am not proud of the events plastered all over today’s paper. And I can’t and won’t defend any part of it.”
A new porno story like Weiners? SMDH. . .
Men (the stupid ones) don’t change much from one country to another – sigh
No, I guess not. Sorry you are dealing with it to.
No bother to me CarolMae – he is part of a right wing horror government – they will probably catch him out on “misusing his travel allowance” – seems the only thing any politician is ever caught up on in my world.
We need Statespeople!
Sex and scandal – interesting what the US media picks up about Australia. The lady was on TV last night (face hidden) saying she regrets the tell all. A woman spurned does things in anger. Guess I am old fashioned but dragging yourself through the mud to bring shame on others seems rather pointless. How many men have told women they will leave their wives – but never do. They guy will continue on with his life – refusing to discuss his stupid, while the woman has a life in tatters.
If I was married to a politician – no way would he be away leading the life of a single man – while I was bringing up the children. Joe Biden had the right idea – and for those too far away to commute – they should be home every weekend – looking after their family and their constituents.
WH: On Wednesday, August 28, the President will deliver remarks at the Let Freedom Ring ceremony on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial— Zeke Miller (@ZekeJMiller) August 07, 2013
Here’s the story, although Jonathan Capehart needs to write “President Obama” and stop the nonsense:
I agree with you, although on some level I’ve entertained the idea that Barack Obama is bigger than the US Presidency – like Ghandi, his name alone means SOMETHING, that “President” does not add to or elevate. Meanwhile, I’ve also noticed that many people who otherwise like, admire or respect him, refer to him as “Obama” I’m not sure why, but maybe it goes back to the point I just made.
That’s a nice way to look at it.
Mr. President, you got swag!!
Putin might as well join the Tea Party. He is toast. I am so glad our President canceled meeting this piece of crap.
I would not be surprise if they ship Snowden to Sibera or maybe to Sarah Palin’s house.
What an idiot trying to play chess with the Master chess player.
[This guy is an effer. Period.]:
Of the 12 women who have now made sexual harassment allegations against San Diego Mayor Bob Filner (D), eight are female veterans and most were victims of sexual assault while they were in the military, CNN reports.
The women say Filner “used his significant power and credentials to access military sexual assault survivors, who they say are less likely to complain.”
[Oh puhleeze! Go back to LaJollaShire & STFU!]:
“What we feared would happen, is happening… The administration has made things worse, not better. It is enough to make some people simply throw in the towel.”
— Mitt Romney, quoted by WMUR, at a New Hampshire fundraiser.
Mitt Romney’s poor turnout in 2012 is the best thing that could have happened to this country, since he so clearly can’t discern between “worse” and “better”. Every economic indicator points to the country doing better than the past decade, and picking up steam. And the middle class is getting some attention, at last, versus those at the top whom Romney & Co are only concerned about. If Romney looks at the current conditions and declares things worse than when the country was losing one million jobs per month and sinking quickly into a depression, then he has no business commenting on the state of affairs, and he needs to slink back into that greedy hole he crawled out of.
Quoting Romney is a major form of stupid – other than being able to put words into sentences, his understanding of the world, the country, and everything – is the same as that of Sarah Palin. The guy has insulted everyone and anyone that he spoke to or about.
New post. POTUS speaking now.
[Lawd, things are getting darn ugly in NC for Ms. Lindsay! Sorry not adding link to politico.]:
Nancy Mace on Tuesday tweeted: “RT @PaulSteel4: @nancymace we support you here in Florida. Nancy Mace vs Nancy boy graham.”
“Nancy boy” is an early 20th century term, often considered derogatory, for an effeminate or homosexual man.
