This is one of my favorite pictures. This kid is serious about his pie.
Pie is my favourite, too!
Blackberry pie for me!
pecan for me!
Happy Friday canadabarb4obama!
I’m sending you 2 scoops of ice cream for 2nd place….
Enjoy your day….
Thanks, Cindy – licorice and butter pecan?
Oh no! I was just roaming my kitchen looking for sweets. Now, I am going to the store for butter pecan ice cream…..and it’s your fault.
I truly forgot how much I love butter pecan until I saw the words. 5lbs. here it comes…..2lbs just thinking about how good it is.
This is not good canadabarb4obama : ( but it’s Friday and I feel like I deserve it : )
Now the licorice and butter pecan……can’t handle that but I’ll get it to you.
will eat separately; please hurry back; my mouth is watering!
Happy Friday Nerdy Wonka,
Congrats on 1st….I actually liked Jay’s new look (hairy face), it was cute on him : )
I agree, Cindy. I like both of him. :)
HAPPY FRIDAY to you!!
Right back atcha, Cindy! (Once I figured out here in retirementland that it was Friday, I knew it would be a good day!)
Nooooooo……….once you woke up, you knew it was a GREAT day! : )
I knew I shouldn’t have compared him to Kenneth Branagh!!
:lol: He heard you and took a razor to the beard. Bad Meta! Bad, Bad, Meta!
Inorite? I’ve got to learn to keep my mouth shut around Jay. I hope he didn’t tell POTUS because he probably would have laughed at him. MY FAULT.
Hello TODers and Jay “Clark Kent” Carney is Back.
Great Post NW. See you all later :)
Have a GREAT day Nena20409!
Gorgeous images Nerdy, thanks a trillion billion gazillion for the post!
Thanks for Rise and Shine. It’s always fantastic to read great ObamaCare news.
a trillion billion gazillion +1
:lol: How do you write that? 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,001?
To infinity. AND BEYOND.
Was it necessary to remind me of what my checking account look like………………………………………..without the 1′s?
Well, I can dream that it looks like this with the 1′s : )
:lol: Mine looks a little similar Cindy!!!
Talking to myself over there, as usual. I do know how to get a new post started, that’s for sure.
Great post NW. Look forward and love your spot on dictation. What a gift!
Happy Friday LDS!!
Hi LDS, read your comment in previous thread. I’m so behind on catching up with all the magnificent posts, but what’s the word on our dear Dudette?
She was back tweeting today Gazelle, woooooooooot!!!!
Thanks, Chips! So very, very happy to hear! Woooooooot indeed! :)
Most excellent news, Gazelle!
Nerdy Wonka does it again! Cannot thank you enough for these glorious images … love the fact that we all get to share this important little “project” at the White House.
I got the email from Nancy Smash and from Valerie Jarrett and didn’t know which one to sign up with – I love how this administration keeps “We the People” involved in the process!!!
Love it, too!
It’s so much fun. The Obama Administration meant it when they said they wanted the American people to participate in our government.
THIS x 1000000000
Ain’t that the truth NW!
And they’ve never wavered in allowing us to participate, lo these many years!
It’s gonna be a hard act to follow – that’s for sure!
Hopefully “we the People” will be so accustom to participating that we will scream and raise bloody hell if we’re not included in the next Administration!
If it’s the Biden Administration, I’ll be included … don’t worry your pretty little head about that. Ha!
Yup, Yup! Me too :D
We can carry all “this” through another term, that’s for sure! Wish we could have two more PBO terms, of course.
Does anyone know what time the President’s SOTU speech will be given?
I have tutorial students right after school on Tuesday…..I need to change things around so that I don’t miss it.
On Tuesday, January 28 at 9 pm ET, join us for an exclusive enhanced broadcast of President Obama’s address to the nation.
Thank you Ladyhawke!
I feel as though I am getting sick around 6:00p.m. Sunday; cough, cough, cough
I am sorry students….all Tuesday sessions are cancelled due to my coughing…don’t want to spread any germs around.
I’m SO psyched for this State of the Union. The Obamas have really changed the whole feel of this event. Just so perfect in every way, from content and candor of the remarks, to the First Lady’s invited guests and the enhanced livestream and the events that follow up in the days after. EXCELLENCE on every level. I’m absolutely excited.
Chips, are we hosting a SOTU party? Let’s put amk in charge of remembering!
meta, I used to watch the Bush & Clinton SOTU with clenched jaws. But, now it’s a celebration!!!!
YOU KNOW IT, sistah!! I feel like I should get dressed up and have special SOTU food.
……platters and platters of GOP STFU!
ROFL!!!! yup! with hot sauce!!! And strawberry Kool Aid :-)
:) :) GGail you are good – I doubt that many people can even say that they used to watch those past SOTU’s with any kind of interest. Ditto for the WHCD, which has now become a major event in and unto itself – largely attributable to our current WH occupants.
Hey hopefruit, I used to watch them because I needed to hear the lies, but now – oh man! – how good are they now!!! Clinton’s actually weren’t so bad, except, he loved to use flowery big words (still do). I had grudging respect for Pappa Bush (poor fella) and it went downhill when little Bush was in power (clueless!)
So now it is indeed a Celebration of the Present & Future for the People!
for all of the major events, Meta…that PBO has done…there is no other place i rather be than right here at TOD….i have my snacks…wine…etc….i just LOVE it…!
PF, couldn’t agree with you more. TOD is the ‘hot ticket” for any PBO event. We are front and center for everything important and have the most intelligent people in the world right here making comments. Who could ask for anything more?
Indeed meta. Never before 2009 have I been so psyched to watch the SOTU address. This has followed a similar trajectory as the WHCD which would usually get just a mere mention in the news the following day, but was not the event that it has become in the recent years. I mean, I don’t recall caring to know who Laura Bush’s invited guests were – do you? :) :)
Huckabee belongs to the same party that blames women when they are raped because they should know men can't control their libidos.— john miller (@deaconmill) January 24, 2014
This guy Huckabee is a Pastor. If I can’t tell you right wing crazy ass gun lovers what to do with your guns, how the hell do you think you have the right to tell me what to do with my body, my vagina. People like Huckabee makes no sense at all.
Hucklebye-bye is also dangerous. A lot of these so call God loving, God fearing Pastors preach hatred right from the pulpits; gathering followers with their message of hate, because they twist “the word” to make it fit to what “they say”….right and wrong is. The Gospel according to the repukes.
I’m intrigued by how many pastors there are in the US – sometimes I wonder if they take on the tag to get tax free housing! Do they have a Divinity Degree? In my world most pastors do indeed have such a degree – and there are very few of them.
He preaches from the book of Hypocrisy….chapter and verse.
Okay its Friday and time for another GOP 2016 wannabe to bite the dust. My husband said he read that Rand Paul is now the number one contender and I laughed so hard I chocked on an apple. Looks like they’re not even scraping the bottom of the barrel now. They’ve gone into the “dregs only” overflow bucket.
Don’t forget to watch AG Holder on The Cycle ………
Thanks for the heads up Linda. Watching now.
Ooooooooooo….what are they talking about
Hopefully, the interview will be posted when available. It is excellent. Very proud of AG Holder.
- Snowden, whistleblower vs criminal, whether he should be pardoned
- Voting Rights Issues
- Extreme sentences for pot use
Now, that’s much better. Here ya go PF ………
Holder speaks out on Voter ID, Wall St, NSA in MSNBC exclusive
Thank you, LH. Holder is such a straight up guy and gives such no nonsense answers. I’m glad he’s working that matter to us like voter ID and the outrageous incarceration of so many minority young men. I feel as if we’re in safe hands.
Our dear ‘meta’ has posted the link to the interview down a couple of comments.
Did he ever decide if he was going to stay on until President Obama term is over?
I sure hopes he stays; they have good chemistry and he has done such an awesome job. I will never forget when he smacked down D. Issa during the hearings. I stood up and applauded him for stopping the BS that Issa was trying to spread.
Nothing yet….but I know he is one of the longest serving in history.
Janet Reno was AG for both Clinton terms….she is the only one so far.
Thank you Linda!
To think how Congress has treated him makes my blood boil.
Not one of us need a Ph.D, MD, GED or any other D to know why.
I wish Ari had asked him about the Contempt of Congress charge……and Darryl Issa.
Shooting at South Carolina University……one person shot ….
ENOUGHHHHHH …OF THE SHOOTINGS..BE THEY ARE SCHOOLS…UNVERSITIES OR ON OUR CITY STREETS…..
Text from my missus the hospice nurse: "I got my gentleman shaved and looking good for his eternal life." And that's why I love her.— Liberal Librarian (@Lib_Librarian) January 24, 2014
Oh LL, I’m going to cry.
Hell, *I’m* choked up, and I’m a schmuck.
The people who do that work, like your wife, are just extraordinary human beings.
Yes, they really really are
I just don’t know how they do it GGail, the compassion is staggering.
We’re thankful we have people like Mrs. LL to help us and our loved ones make the transition with dignity.
yes they are….yes they are….wish i had a flower icon …
No Liberal Librarian,
You got it right……”real men” do cry and it’s A okay.
God bless your awesome wife…..and may He keep blessing your union : )
Tender loving care…Thank you Nurse!
Takes a special person to be a Hospice Nurse…
Wow. That is beautiful and sweet.
Dennis Rodman reportedly brought thousands of dollars in luxury gifts to Kim Jong Un for his birthday. Now, Washington’s looking into whether those gifts violated U.S. sanctions.
Dennis Rodman was already having a rotten month, between the trip to rehab and the global condemnation for cozying up to a dictator. Now things may be about to get much worse. The U.S. Treasury Department is investigating whether he violated the law that prohibits the importing of luxury goods into North Korea.
I have to believe that there is a bed; waaaaayyyyyy back in the corner of the hospital, located waaaayyyyy downstairs, with his name on the papers:
3 men dressed in white, holding that funny looking white gown with the loooonnnnggggg sleeves to buckle up his crazy _ _ __, close the door and lose the keys………forever, and ever and ever.
Their brains just don’t see the stupid – and this is way out in front of most other stupids.
@TheObamaDiary part of a longer quote from the Remnick New Yorker piece. Reminded me of why I love the President. http://t.co/oTW2t5WUk5— stu stein (@thestustein) January 24, 2014
Yesterday Blitzer tried to get Remnick to say PBO sounded ” deflated ” and ” defeated ” in the piece…….Remnick pushed back hard and said absolutely NOT !
Oh Wolfie, you’re such a shilling fool. Stick to game shows. Oh, wait.
Thanks! I needed that laugh – hahahahaha!!!!!
:-) Two more GREAT Wolfie moments:
I’ll never forget the first one of these two – what a put down and well deserved.
Ha ! The answers did not show up in a telepromter…like in the studio….
Just remember folks: When GWB was in office, spying was necessary for FREEDOM. Now, with Obama in charge, spying is a blow to FREEDOM.— Liberal Librarian (@Lib_Librarian) January 24, 2014
Gahtdamn….Gahtdamn….GAHTDAMN!!!! As only Stephen King can do it. When he confirmed he’s a Liberal, I had a huge grin on my face.

Thank you Meta!
The RNC position on NSA: "We're shocked, shocked, that a program begun under Bush which we supported is still going on."— Liberal Librarian (@Lib_Librarian) January 24, 2014
LL, post this on the sides of the Goodyear Blimp and let it FLY!!!!!
Would Wolf Blitzer have a job at CNN if his name were Harry Skolnick?— Liberal Librarian (@Lib_Librarian) January 24, 2014
Blitzer is still living off his reporting from under the bed of a Baghdad hotel during the first Gulf War.
Love this post, Nerdy Wonka. I’m psyched about the SOTU and all the information we are getting. I love participating in any way I can. Love our President!!
My GOP Rep Luke Messer is one of the idiots saying they must have a concession to pass the debt limit. They’re like little kids drawing up a Christmas list as they try to figure out what they will ask for. POTUS has said no repeatedly. Pelosi says no. The Democrats say no. I call, email and tweet him. I just love to give him my point of view. Just saw this. Patty Murray is no nonsense. I can just imagine her voice.
