Helloooooo Chips! :) :) :)
How ya doing today Carol?
Ok now that I’m here! Nothing to add to the conversation though. :/
Steady improvement with your eye I hope, Carol. Congrats on 1st :)
Thanks Bob. My eyesight is improving I think but a setback with an allergic reaction to a new med. :/
Good news about your eye Carol and hopefully, they can provide an alternative med that doesn’t cause you any difficulties.
Thanks, yes I’m off the new med and trying to wash it through my system. Sort of “straitjacketed” myself to keep from scratching to the bones. Wore gloves, long sleeve shirt, etc. ;)
:-) Well I’m glad you’re here Carol!
:grin: All ears! ;)
Missed! Ah me. :)
Now I’m curious about your day VC. ;)
Nothing exciting – just ventured outside of my comfort zone, and *drove* downtown.
Was there lots of traffic? Did you go to a special event, something fun? ;)
Is the current Pope nice? CarolMae, I can tell you don’t yet ‘get’ lil ole me. There’s no way I was going to torture myself for over an hour of highway driving to go downtown on a Saturday for ‘fun’. Especially when I could get far more ‘fun’ (my idea of..) by simply clicking into the TOD village from the comfort of home!
He seems very nice from the little I know and understand the Catholic Church. 👼 You would have fun at a funeral if you wanted to. . .
How did uptown/downtown go?
I left downtown still standing….. honest! ;)
But was downtown still standing after your visit?
;) ;) You got it wrong. Teeheehee!
Ah, okay, I read it like you were still standing after your eventful day :-)
I know. I saw both as soon as I hit enter, but was hoping *you* would see only one. Of course, I also realized in the same breath that *that* was a hopeless hope!
It’s one of the reasons I <3 you – you get the nuances. ;)
Howling, you’re a grade A hoot, Missus!

It’s funny and frustrating to listen to a British accent of an older man reading the conversation on TOD. TMI!
I’m also getting a little mad at twitter for the blue error screen that keeps popping up. 😼
I agree CarolMae! It just shows up every now and then, not all the time. Don’t know what I do to make it show. Glad to hear you are doing better. Don’t rush
Hi Marilyn. :) Thanks. It’s very hard to stay away from TOD. It seems to show up more than now and then for me. :/ Think I have too many open tabs now, but I think it’s twitters problem but I haven’t seen any complaints on twitter. That might mean it’s me. They haven’t replied to me either. :/

Oh my is all I can say too Hopefruit, wow.
I’ve seen that image before, and it’s breathtaking each time.
So much sadness in the world today…
RIP Karter. God, please comfort this family. Boy struck, killed after dad's funeral in Chester abclocal.go.com/wpvi/story?sec…— Alycee (@jazziz2) April 13, 2014
That’s a family that will go into deep mourning, for sure. So sad.
Ukrainians definitely have a clue ….

That’s awesome. People power is one of the Ukraine’s weapons.
All right everyone, LL with a hat.
LL!!!!!!! All I can do is post this:
Although, your face will forever be your avi for me!
Oh God, Missus LL found pictures from my younger years, when I was losing my hair, and refusing to face up to reality. Thank goodness I’ve aged well.
Nice hat LL. How are you?
Good Evening TODVille!
About to be on my 5th Manhattan. So, awesome!
Way to go LL! Nice hat. :)
I’m cracking up that you and No Child complimented LL’s hat – but not him. :lol:
LL – never mind them, you ARE a handsome devil!
Danke schoen ;)
I’ve been outside all day, so the hat has been firmly on head. Otherwise I’d be red.
Thanks. :) Took me a good 10 minutes to figure out how to turn on my laptop cam. Guess I’m not being monitored by the NSA.
LOL! And don’t pay Chips any mind…obviously the hat looks good because of who is wearing it. :) :)
Well, I have been promising a picture for umpteen years, and I just sheared off my hair today.
You’re a good sport for sure, LL, to enable some very fun exchanges during the Saturday evening party at TOD :)
I’m a hat wearer, especially during spring/summer.
Hubby hasn’t lost any hair or even turned gray and he’s retired. He almost never takes off his baseball cap though. Coworkers even thought he was always bald! :)
Come on Bob, you next – hat or no hat, we wanna see ya!
You first Chips!
Perfect photo for your (poetry) book jacket! Or if you’re writing a war love story from abroad! (How’s that?)

Great info Mighty. I should try to catch a glance.
We have rain in the forecast, but if it is clear, and I am allowed up in the rooftop garden at 1:00 am (which I am probably NOT), I would be so delighted to bundle up and go out there to view in an unobstructed and very safe area!!
Y'all. I absolutely LOVE my president. Just keep laughing off bigots in tea party, @BarackObama.

IMO – The “Plan B” is either authored by one of Tzar Vlad’s propagandists or by a total nut with nothing on the line, so I thought I’d ask the folk who published it …
@EuromaidanPR Respectfully, is the author of this armageddon scenario a Ukrainian, living in Ukraine, and serving in Ukraine's military?— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) April 13, 2014
I know scorched earth tactics have been an unfortunate feature of Eastern European wars. But I seriously doubt it’s needed in this case.
Definitely NOT, LL. BTW, the dude who authored that piece of nonsense just got a little lesson in ‘teh google’ ….
Dude @noclador you're Linkedin says otherwise. Am sure @NATO won't be amused. @AgaJarzewicz @IlvesToomas @maxseddon http://t.co/AKrc34FXeh— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) April 13, 2014
He was claiming to be ‘inside NATO’ …. hope that goes well for him … NOT …
Speaking of handsome devils, I’m watching a Dr. Jim al-Khalili docu on BBC4. Geeks rule.

There would have been a blood bath by now.
I was thinking the same thing YeaYouRite.

Indeed. I enjoyed that part of his speech – and so did the crowd! They love his laugh. Kinda reminds me of when he’s doing the WHCD – I’m so looking forward to this year’s.
Oh me too Hopefruit, his WHCD ‘chats’ are majestic!
I mean…why else has this event gotten so popular all of a sudden? There was a time when CSPAN alone would carry the event. And it would get a mention on the news the next day. Now all the cable stations want to participate. And it’s THE event of the weekend in DC. And WE know why…
