    Thanks, 99ts and CarolMae. 😀 It is an honour to make it through the gate first when Nerdy is in charge; she usually walks in so softly I’m not alerted until minutes later.

    Hello, TODobots, one and all! I can’t remember the last time I greeted the entire village – at least not at this time of night.

    Were they there for the screening of Monuments Men? Did you see my tweet of a real Monuments man near my hometown?

      I was – as I am wont to do – chatting on the prior thread – when what I should have been doing was household chores.

      At almost 2pm in my world I have just realized the laundry is waiting – and then I remember when my Mom used to boil up the sheets in a copper kettle – and I thank the person who invented the automatic washing machine 🙂

      I also stretched myself to turn on the dishwasher – which should have been finished a few hours ago.

    I let Pete know you’re on it, NW! (Hope he stops here every now and then, to see our “shrine” to his images!)

      He did answer one of tweet questions once a long time ago. 😀

      Was offline yesterday, just now seeing the tweet from @CamelotK re: Hillary appointing Barack Obama to #SCOTUS.

      How presumption these f#@*^% PUMAs are!

      First of all, only PUMAs and MSM want another round of the Clintons in 2017. The world is moving too fast to have retread ideas at the forefront.

      President Obama is both strategic and innovative. IMO (not telling him what he should do, of course), he would be bored stiff on SCOTUS. Too leisurely, not a big enough canvas. Definitely wouldn’t utilize his greatest skills.

      I think President Obama will strive to make a difference in the underserved and neglected areas of DC, which has been without a champion since DC became the capitol. He can get the ball rolling and then pass the torch to the young progressive leaders who live in the opposite corner of DC from Georgetown and Chevy Chase MD.

      After Sasha has decided on her college location, Barack and Michelle will be empty-nesters who will be eager to get involved in community organizing on a national and global level.

      BTW, did I mention I hate PUMAs? LOL.

        *not a big enough canvas*

        Oh, I so very much agree with what you said there, especially! It’ll be so interesting to follow his path – and Michelle’s path – after 2017. Not that I’m rushing that!!!!

    In real life, anyone here ever seen or tasted pineberries? They look pretty but I’ve never heard of them.

    Serious question: Is our US media covering a nascent civil war in Russia’s “near-abroad”? Thank goodness that Ukraine rid itself of nukes after the fall of the Soviet Union.

      Thanks so much for posting this important info here, Jeff….I actually saw this at the Weather Channel site and got side tracked and never read it….THIS SHOULD BE TWEETED and read by everyone. They are KILLING US for gas and oil. MUST READ and pass…kudos to the Weather Channel for doing the job the MSM SHOULD be doing but never will.

    Holy crap, 20 dead in Ukraine.

    • February 18, 2014 at 11:06 pm

      At least … probably quite a few more … another day like the past 24 h and it’s full scale civil war …

      Grave concern should be that the next day or two are when Putin’s many beloved Georgians, Chechens, etc., decide to go for the gold in the suicide IED event in Sochi.

    You claim to be a writer. If you can’t mind commas and semicolons, you’re not going to get far.
