    I have MISSED Chris Rock as a host. He killed it when he hosted the Oscars, MTV awards and is now killing it again at the BET Awards.

    Nobody and nothing is off limits. The man is spilling truth left, right, and center and doing it in a hilarious manner.

    One white lady did know what BET mean? She got it right. Chris Rock ask this white guy if he had tried to date a black woman before? He said he had, but she said No.

    No, the longest five seconds is waiting for my eye-hand coordination to kick in, when I see “Leave a comment” on TOD!

    I think Chris Rock should host the White House Correspondence Dinner :) THAT would be a hoot!

      EPIC GOP and media BURNS plus much needed truth telling would be the meal of the night.

    We had a great fundraising event for Manen Trevedi this evening, the Dem candidate running in PA’s sixth congressional district. Good turnout, free flowing wine and lots of check writing. Manny told us that his race is rated among the top three by the DNC and DCCC because there’s no incumbent and he’s running in a perfect swing district–40 percent Dem; 40 percent GOP and 20 percent Ind. He’s got so much to offer in the US House and his common sense would be an oasis of sanity among the loonies on Capitol Hill. Races like this are worth fighting for and contributing to. Let’s all pitch in for the win.

      I added him to my ActBlue list. Also senate races in Iowa, Alaska, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, and WV: per Sam Wang they are pivot points for Senate Majority. Even though I hold my nose at these Blue Dogs we cannot allow a Senate majority to impeach the president.

    • June 29, 2014 at 10:24 pm

      And how are the fireflies? Or is it past their bedtime? LOL.

        Arapaho, the SE PA fireflies are doing well. They’re having a high old time in the meadow behind our house.

          June 29, 2014 at 10:35 pm

          :( I miss fireflies…or lightening bugs….dancing in my windows at night…..we don’t have them in the desert. So much I miss being here….the beach comes to my mind first:)

          • June 29, 2014 at 10:43 pm

            Yep, it’s too dry in the west.

            The only fireflies most of my SoCal friends, acquaintances have seen are those in the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland, LOL.

            I’m not far from the beach, but having grown up (at the beach, mostly) in San Diego, I have little desire to go there and end up sandy and sticky from the salt water.

            Fireflies are great, but the upside of living in a desert/semi-desert is that we have very few flying bugs (I was told that everyone thinks people in central PA are so friendly, but what they’re really doing is swatting the bugs away, LOL). Our biggest flying insect nuisance are the gnats that are attracted to CO2 (as mosquitos are) and seem to hover around your head. But with the drought, even those buggers seem to have gone dormant.

              June 29, 2014 at 10:52 pm

              I’ll take the beach and the fireflies ANY DAY! Right now we deal with Palo Verde bugs which are like giant cockroaches…that fly. OMG. They are disgusting and creepy. Big feast for the birds around here if they happen to find one walking around, or find a dead one. The desert is harsh. This nasty thing: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Derobrachus_geminatus

              It is one of the largest beetles in North America and can reach up to three and a half inches in length. Derobrachus adults are black or brown in color, have long antennae, and spines on the thorax which form a collar around the “neck” of the beetle. They have wings and can fly, albeit awkwardly at times. Mature beetles emerge in the summer to mate, then die soon afterward; adult lifespan is about one month.[2]

                Try living in a semi-tropical area. We have palmetto bugs (huge flying roaches), all kinds of flies, the dreaded mosquitoes, locusts (almost stepped on one last week), and attack bees, and other nameless little bugs that bite. I have to spray on bug repellent just to take out the trash. I spend the summer covered in anti-itch creams. Last summer I had a strange house fly infestation for two weeks. I would love to be able to sit outside on the deck, but I will not be able to do so until it is screened in.

                • June 29, 2014 at 11:13 pm

                  ((((CEB))))

                  Unlike LL, I try not to gloat about our weather, but it’s been a wonderful summer so far. After the April heatwave when we sweltered in 100+ degree weather, it hasn’t gotten above 80 where I live.

                  And I’m getting to be like DF and 99ts — cold when it’s below 70 — wasn’t always so sensitive to the cold, but I’ve been bundling up in some sort of cardigan most of the time indoors (with no a/c on since most of my windows are facing north),

                    The weather has been marvelous here in SD since those terrible heat waves in April. We’ve had a couple of the usual “June gloom” days, but otherwise the temps have been in the low to mid 70s. Today was a really gorgeous day. I went out for a few a few minutes but had to come back and watch the games.

                  Oh, I know:) I’ve lived all over the place, and I know all about those flying creatures you talk about :) We do have it better in the flying bug department around here…too hot to be flying around here! Of course, we don’t spend too much time sitting out on our patio relaxing now either…too damn hot! Today was about 108 and this week we’ll see our first temps over 110. Would YOU want to sit outside in that? :) The best time for that is Oct/Nov and March/ April…totally the best time to be here.

              • June 29, 2014 at 11:08 pm

                Omigosh, I had no idea — I’ve never heard of those buggers, something Tony Hillerman failed to mention in his novels (I think I’ve read all his novels, was so sad when he died, just before President Obama was elected in 2008).

                The four corners area, and the Navajo Nation in general is one of my favorite places.

                Yeschhhugh.

                Forgot to mention that the grunion are running now (they spawn on the beaches of SoCal, from Santa Barbara south to somewhere in Baja during high tides associated with the new moon [now] and full moon from March – August).

                Something that only happens here, during the early morning hours, an excuse to party at the beach!

                In Florida, it’s the “palmetto bug.” I’ve seen a grown man stand on top of a bed and yell “Kill it!” Awful, awful, awful.

        • June 29, 2014 at 10:37 pm

          Thanks for the update.

          I did hear from CarolMaeWY this evening.

          She is following doctor’s orders, which means she is spending very limited time on Twitter, and can’t hang out here either.

          She is going to a physical therapist on Tuesday, and she misses TOD very much.

          Wished her the best of luck with the physical therapist — they are pretty much miracle workers.

            thank you, Arapaho. She probably wants to follow Dr orders precisely so as not to have any setbacks. Good for her…wishing her well and a full recovery soon.

    thing about that painting with the republican presidents is that lincoln of course, but even dwight eisenhower, have barely any relation to those other murderous thieves in the painting. you look at dwight eisenhower’s writings and speeches and he’s a radical liberal by today’s standards, and this dynamic was designed by “the news” owners of today. president obama has been the first president to start bringing it back to the eisenhower standards.

        You are absolutely right, JOB! Susan Eisenhower came out publicly in support of Sen. Obama.

          June 30, 2014 at 12:32 am

          The ’08 campaign – with all of the supporters who jumped aboard – was a phenomenal time. Of course, it was harrowing at points, but it ended well. Didn’t it?

            June 30, 2014 at 2:53 am

            Yes Indeed! I have never once regretted supporting President Obama. I was born 3 months after FDR died and Truman became President. I was 7 years old when Ike (Gen. Dwight Eisenhower) was first elected president. I was 15 when JFK was elected and 18 when he was assassinated. Although I vaguely remember President Eisenhower, I distinctly remember JFK. Basically then, I’ve known 10 American Presidents, from JFK to President Obama. As far as I am concerned, President Obama is one of the best presidents in my life time.

    The situation with all the children coming here from the Central .America countries will require leadership. Now let’s she what the Republicans do. Probably not a dam thing but try to blame it all on Barack Obama.

    • June 29, 2014 at 10:46 pm

      Well, Congress is off for (another) week for the 4th of July holiday.

      So the only negative news we’ll hear this week about President Obama will come from the MSM.

        That won’t stop the McCain, Graham, and other anti-Immigration Republicans from appearing on Fox, CNN, MSNBC,and the other stations trying to blame this entire problem on President Obama.

        There’s a sweet Irish Sport Horse filly who needs her daily exercise which I help with (especially when her mom is out of town) and her barn mates (1 Percheron, 1 Appaloosa, and her half brother) will be clamoring for carrots with their breakfast. Back Later!

    Good morning; stopping in to say “HI” before I get started on my to do list. Way behind schedule and I’m hosting a cookout on Friday. The yard and food will be ready; the house is a whole different story…

        June 30, 2014 at 7:21 am

        VC, I’m trying to motivate ME! I’m just so behind schedule in the house! I just took down the Christmas tree a couple of weeks ago. The boxes of Christmas party supplies are still sitting in my living room, waiting to be inventoried. and to top it off, I’m having overnight guests, so I can’t just dump everything in one of the spare bedrooms…

        As I’m to feeling so hot, I work for 15 minutes, sit for 15…

        “Life 101″ lol…

        • 93 vcprezofan2
          June 30, 2014 at 7:28 am

          {{Alycee}} more important than the house schedule is that you are willing to do it all, bit by bit, IMO. Maybe you are more prepared than you think – isn’t there a holiday called ‘Christmas in July’? Seems to me that the house could be considered ready for that – i.e put some x-mas supplies away and leave the rest for the guests to help you inventory. That could be a novel July party game? ;) ;)
          .
          .
          I’m teasing, and I hope you get things done to your satisfaction without overly tiring yourself. Have a GOOD Monday!
