    There’s something about the xmas trees or the horses that Bo just does not like. He wants to get as far away as possible. 😀 😀

    Hello NW!

    Happy Thanksgiving TODVille!

  5. November 27, 2015 at 2:00 pm

    Good afternoon, TOD. Back from my trip to the grocery store. Picked up my year’s supply of paper towels; and a few of their BF grocery specials — only the things I normally use, purchased at their “loss leader” prices. Was disappointed that they didn’t have tenderloins on sale this year, I wanted several for my party… Time to rethink the menu… Ran into a couple of cousins at the store; pleasant surprise as right before going shopping I commented on her FB post that I hoped to see her soon — meaning at here family’s Saturday before Christmas brunch.

    Had a wonderful time yesterday at another cousin’s dinner. All of he children, grands, and g-grands were there except one (was his in-laws turn…). Great discussions on family history/genealogy; politics; and economics. I had hoped to go to NY today; friends of my former D-i-L#1 invited my Mom and I to join them for the family Thanksgiving Friday dinner. Would have been a chance to spend time with the grandson. Mine is willing — body said “HELL NO.” As I have tickets for the Soulful Symphony concert in Baltimore tomorrow night, I’m listening to my body…

    Off to do some chores…

    Colorado Springs recalled the Democrats who signed a gun control bill the NRA did not like…….serves them right, those that could not bother to vote and those that voted to recalled them.

      Doubt if he’ll even notice or care, but what the heck ….

      BTW, it’s true and we know precisely where they are located and how to leverage the assets, maximally 🙂 Unfortunately, I can’t post details publicly, yet … that’ll change in 2016 🙂

      Back to work ….

        Sounds fascinating, Bob!

        • November 27, 2015 at 9:11 pm

          It’s exceptionally cool, Jacqueline – no R&D issues, all proven ‘in the field,’ and already being deployed in settings that prove it scales and the economics are hugely compelling. Can’t wait to share tons of details with all of you!!!

          Hope your son continues to keep his spirits and will soon be fully recovered.

          Happy Thanksgiving!!

    One of my favorite songs, although I must confess, I prefer the live version by Sylvester & Two Tons of Fun. Ms. Patti can throw a PAR-TAY! Years ago, I was a plus one at several of her shindigs; unfortunately, my friend, the invitee, passed away…

      He said the video of Laquan McDonald being shot 16 times by a police officer in Chicago helped open his eyes to the systemic problems of racial discrimination in America and the need to look at the issues objectively.

      Was he a rich kid?

    They break every rule. They were the ones telling Us all to Clean up Hip Hop, Rock and Roll. They wanted language ‘appropriate’ for TV and Cable after a certain time.

      Yes, desertflower—I remember it well.
      Also, Marc Pocan from the Southern Poverty Law Center has been sounding the alarm for year.

      For me, the guy lying on his stomach pointing his rifle at Federal officers during the Cliven Bundy ranch standoff, was pretty graphic proof that white guys with guns get to do whatever they want without consequences.
      As far as i know, there was no punishment for that outrageous behavior and Cliven Bundy continues to graze his cattle on Federal Lands for free.
