Hiya, Ralph, good to see you. Don’t recall seeing you hereabouts recently.
Congrats on first.
Miss your TOD posts, always feel like I’ve learned something new after reading. Hope Winter is treating you well.
the ad was terrific…loved it
DonnaD – that was
BTW, what’s a lanQuage? If Robert Crater is going to defend the English language, it’d be more meaningful if he made sure his spelling of same passes muster. The ‘q’ is not exactly in the same vicinity as the ‘g’!
LMAO @ “lanquage.” Reminds me of the the other one on at a Teabag rally: “In are country, we speak English.”
It does indeed, Hopef. Of course, I should give them the benefit of the (spelling) doubt by recognizing they were so emotionally caught up in their righteous indignation, their rage blinded them. Then again, their rage always blind them – poor unhappy, bitter, narrow-minded…..souls.
They speak and spell using their own language….”Rightwingese”
And they do it with mega self-confidence!!!!
I vote for rightwanglish!!!!
Or rightwinglish? Has that been taken?
Okay, I vote ‘thumbs up’ on this choice. Trust you to ring the right vowel bell!
You’re so cute – and I’ll take your thumbs up. Nice way to start the evening!
Perhaps instead of smartphones, they all have stupidphones, which auto-misspell words at inconvenient times!!
Perhaps. Or perhaps they are simply not as sharp as they like to think they are.
Hello there, neighbour! Celebrating much?
Nah, last night I enjoyed heathy the fireworks and the people inside and outside the building whooping and hollering, but all seems normal this morning, except cold and windy, looks to be snowing in the mountains, which will please the skiers, for sure!
*heathy = hearing! Serves me right for my smartphone comment! Instant karma is always preferable to waiting, never sure when it will spring into your day!!
Excellent tweets Donna! Congrats Ralph on #1!
thank you, thank you very much….
Donna, you truly made my day with your tweets. It’s heartwarming to know that these true blue Americans don’t know what the national anthem is. It’s comedy gold.
In one month Colorado has paid over 1 million in taxes for the sale of weed.
Wow. That’s fantastic revenue.
You gotta luv it. THEY don’t need the white sheets and burning cross’s anymore.
Thanks a trabillion LL, enjoy the game – ish!
Just finished our taxes. I needed a distraction from the fact that we’re playing in a stadium where the away team has yet to win this season.
#SB48 organizers expected 12,000 fans to come by train. Instead, 28,000 did. Chaos ensued. nj.com/super-bowl/ind… http://t.co/ZXI4eIDKY0— Jim Roberts (@nycjim) February 03, 2014
I saw reports last night where they said that it was 102 degrees down in the subway and that people were passing out from the heat and over 1.5 hour wait for trains.
That must have been a nightmare! At times like these I appreciate the machine called TV.
Now I’m hearing that there are people who flew in and are now stranded at NJ/NYC airports with delays and cancellations because of the weather. It must especially suck as a Broncos fan who made that trek….
And to think that the average price of admission for that game was $1700.00 per seat so yeah that’s gonna be a really long flight home for the Broncos fans even when they do get airborne .
$1700??????????????????? “They’ve” completely bought out every last part of US society.
Oh that was the starting price. The face value on the tickets ran from $800 – $2500 but you couldn’t buy them for this price. Instead you had to buy them on the re-sale market starting at $1700.00. It’s just ridiculous. It’s an event for the rich and famous.
Wow. How in the world could the organizers have been that far off, predicting the train riders. Amazing!
Anyone who pays $1700 for a seat would be expected to arrive by helicopter/private plane or limousine Rich people don’t do public transit.
As the nation grows in population, Our ability to improve and expand out antiquated infrastructure lags further behind. NJ and NY need more transportation expansion. Just like in GA last week. Just like every other state. Since Nixon, US has regressed from our basic duties for our growing nation’s transportation Needs.
Didn’t Christie turn down some money for transportation improvement?
Yes in 2010. Millions already spent and Millions to be spent.
Might be a good time to ask congress about that wonderful AMERICAN JOBS ACT, so many of these dangers would have been addressed years ago.
Christie sure has been screwing** NJ right and left!
** pardon me for going off the word wagon but this really seems to be the best fit.
Because, Nena, God forbid we should have to raise anyone taxes to provide the basic services we all need and life as we know it would come to an end if the one percent actually saw a tax increase.
And how much did govt pay toward that stadium? Building toys for their rich friends
I feel sorry for those who have been stranded as that must be extremely frustrating, especially if their team lost. However, *I* can’t imagine leaving my home to go to a crowded game IN THE COLD; I don’t care which sport it is!
Exactly – nothing beats the warmth, comfort and affordability of watching the game at home, or else why do we bother to have TV machines? It’s for times like these. As Donna said, these tickets were $1700 a pop (and that was after falling dramatically in price)!
$1700! You both made that up! No way so many people would be able to put together so much for a *football* game, or any game!!! I don’t believe it!!
With you on this!! I was always grateful that my daughter chose dancing and acting for her exercise and enrichment, over soccer or softball!! I confess to smiling a bit smugly on those drenching days as I drove past the playfields, all those soccer moms and dads standing faithfully in the pouring winter rain!!
I wasn’t quite as lucky as you, MP! My offspring chose swimming which, while indoors, necessitated him having to be on pool deck by 5:15am three to four mornings a week. AND that did not include the after school practices or the weekend majorly-boring swim meets! You better believe I was NOT SMILING smugly or AT ALL!!!!!!
I had 4 kids each doing their own thing. One daughter danced, sang and acted. I liked attending her performances a lot. Another daughter was on ski team as a downhill racer (brrr cold watching that). She also played soccer, softball and volleyball. A son was into individual sports with cross country track, rock and ice climbing, cross country skiing and downhill skiing. The oldest son was into basketball and soccer. Their Dad and I got a varied experience as fans of our kids activities, as well as time consuming shared deliveries to and from practices.
Way to turn people off of public transportation.

Howdy all you O’s!!! A great getting up day agin in TODville!!
I am soooooooo over the snow and c-c-c-c-old weather. I shoveled 4 times on Saturday and each time it looked as if I hadn’t been out there at all. That, after shoveling every other day for about 2 weeks prior. Now, today the forecast calls for another snow weather warning for Tuesday and Wednesday. We get these frigid, freezing temps for two days, then snow for two days. An endless cycle and it’s just not any fun!
In other news……. I do believe the fat lady is warming up in the wings, in preparation for her duet with Chrispie.
Hiya cookemom! It seems like every week for the next 6 weeks or so, there’s going to be some type of snow/sub-freezing weather event. Like you and Japa in the midwest, we in the North East are just as sick and tired, even though our temps are slightly kinder overall.
It’s a travesty, I tells ya! I can’t get out and run so I joined a health club and I’ve never seen so much preening, fawning, prancing, flexing, and all out glistening. I can’t wait until I can get out on the trail and re-unite with my little furry friends of the forest.
Accuweather says you folks are going to have a very late spring.
Hey, I’d love to have a wet spring here. We MIGHT get some relief in March, but not enough.
Spring? No such thing in Chi-town. We’ll go straight into 90+ degree weather. Same thing happens instead of fall, we drop overnight to sub sub zero temps and snow up the ying yang.
Chicago has two seasons: winter and construction.
I haven’t yet figured out how Chicago can have so much road construction and avoid filling pot holes (which are now the size of small meteor craters).
Love the Coke/Pepsi/WV tap water tweet. I had to retweet it.

I love and support my sister and I think her words speak for themselves.— Ronan Farrow (@RonanFarrow) February 02, 2014
I too believe Dylan Farrow.
Woody Allen was dating their mother then adopted Dylan with her I thought, then supposedly had Ronan with their mother and then was sleeping with an adopted step-child? Where there is this much Smoke……Fire Burns.
I had no idea how accomplished Ronan was. He was excellent on Bill Maher on Friday night. Darrell Issa got duly pummeled by absolutely everyone on the show.
Almost don’t want all the nice young athletes to go to Sochi! Putin better make sure nothing happens under his watch – at least be diligent in his country’s preps, realizing there’s no place that’s 100% safe anywhere. Unfortunately.

I agree with you on this one, JOB. Would be very anxious if a relative were among the athletes and I do fear for our whole delegation.
Hi, jackieG – the Olympics haven’t even started and I can’t wait until they’re over! I’ll be hoping and praying everything goes smoothly.

If I remember correctly, the Farmer’s Almanac had predicted a very cold, snowy and long winter. But I didn’t heed the words of warning….
That’s what I heard back in October. A very long and cold winter…more snow and rain than usual. I think CA will get rain late into winter into spring and maybe through early June.
Oh Lord I hope you’re right about the rain.
Was this posted last night?
Know about nothing about football — although when I was growing up, I was a huge San Diego Chargers fan — loved Lance Alworth and saw Joe Namath play in the San Diego High School stadium (before the Mission Valley stadium was built in 1969, I think). Also saw The Beatles in that stadium in 1965. Good memories.

Announcing the First White House Maker Faire
// In years past, firing a marshmallow cannon might have landed you in the principal’s office. On Tuesday, it landed 16-year-old Joey Hudy in the First Lady’s box at the 2014 State of the Union Address.
At the 2012 White House Science Fair, Joey wowed the President by using a homemade cannon to send a marshmallow flying across the East Room. Joey then handed the President a business card reading, “Don’t be bored, make something.” The saying became a rallying cry for the President’s efforts to grow a generation of students who are “makers of things, not just consumers of things.” In December, Joey became the youngest Intel intern, after he amazed Intel CEO Brian Krzanich at a Maker Faire, which is an event that allows tinkerers, entrepreneurs, and inventors like Joey to haul their creations out of the garage and into the spotlight.
Inspired by “Joey Marshmallow” and the millions of citizen-makers driving the next era of American innovation, we are thrilled to announce plans to host the first-ever White House Maker Faire later this year. We will release more details on the event soon, but it will be an opportunity to highlight both the remarkable stories of Makers like Joey and commitments by leading organizations to help more students and entrepreneurs get involved in making things.
Meanwhile, you can get involved by sending pictures or videos of your creations or a description of how you are working to advance the maker movement to firstname.lastname@example.org, or on Twitter using the hashtag #IMadeThis. Take Joey’s advice – don’t be bored, make something. Maybe you, like Joey, can take your making all the way to The White House. //
Terrific idea and what a remarkable young man.

I read this morning that our governor is not going to wait on her to decide. I read last week that he is behind in fundraising so I guess since she has decided to drag her feet then he is going full steam ahead…This should be interesting considering what “good friends” they are.
Right now I think he is the best in the field. I’m sure they will bring up that indiscretion he supposedly had some years ago but in this era I think he can get around that.
He is a great debater one-on-one. In fact I will go as far as to say the best I’ve seen but I’m hoping that they are working on his public speaking. I’m not sure if its because after PBO the bar has been set so high and no one can live up to him but I think this is the Gov’s one weak spot. I’ve seen him speak in person many times and although he tries hard I don’t get the sense that he inspires his audience.
Donna, when we’ve had the best, everything else will pale in comparison. Frankly, I’ve never been impressed with Hillary’s speaking skills, so it’s not as if the comparison with her will be dramatic. Good training can make a big difference. I hope O’Malley takes advantage of it.
President Obama has forever spoiled us in the political speaking department.

PBO is just an impossible President to follow. It will be another 100 years before anyone will get close
Eh, weak sauce.
I mean, don’t get me wrong, that’s good news. But it has to firmly die in the Senate.
LL, I think that’s one of the reasons that the WH is meeting with both the House and Senate Dem caucuses this week.
Chipsticks – I caught your smart alecky remark on the last thread about us folks on the West Coast and what year it is!!! Hardy har har! Yes, it’s finally 2014 in our world….how ’bout yours?

Last night's Super Bowl was the most watched TV show in U.S. history w/111.5mm viewers. Still a minority of the nation.— Josh Sternberg (@joshsternberg) February 03, 2014
So this is the part when morons in a country where the most common language was imported from England go all nativist about the how people speak in the nation that their non-indigenous ancestors populated by way of illegal immigration because Coke corporation decided to be decent human beings in their ad campaign embracing the melting pot that the founders where so proud to create.
Tweet peeps are lazy today. It appears that 1/2 or more are reruns from the weekend.
Did Bill O’Reilly actually ask PBO if he “knew football, blitzes and all that?” Yes, he did because I just saw it with my very own unbelieving eyes—–can’t remember that from the interview that aired. Billo must have cut that part out of humiliating embarrassment. Amused, PBO assured, “I know football, man.”
Hell, PBO probably knows curling, because he’s that fly.

I’m not a pet person but even I think this is absolutely deplorable.
I saw a report on Sochi. Was a sad, miserable place. It looks like urban blight and neglect that was disgusting and pathetic. There is a huge problem with hoards of stray dogs. They were quick throwing some evergreens around the place to make it look less like the miserable hell it is.
How on earth did this place win this Olympics? Geesh!!!
