              Oh Sue! I didn’t know that your plans to move to Arizona had changed. Now for your medical condition – take your meds and follow your doctor’s orders so that the level of your life will be as comfortable as possible for the remainder of your existence on this Earth. You are important to TOD❤

                LOVE YOU ALL…THANK YOU SO MUCH…I AM DOING MY BEST…ALOT OF THOSE MEDS ARE NOT AFFORDABLE THOUGH…EMBREL FOR EXAMPLE IS $4,000.00 PER MONTH…$1,000 PER SHOT….ALOT OF PEOPLE ARE DIEING OUT THERE BECAUSE PHARMA IS SO HIGHLY PRICED. IF I WERE PRESIDENT…I WOULD FREEZE PRICES ON ALL OF THOSE GREEDY BASTARDS….ARIZONA WAS AN EXTREMELY HEART BREAKING DECISION…BUT MY DISEASE HAS NOW PROGRESSED QUICKLY SO I THINK WE MADE THE RIGHT DECISION. AM MOVING INTO A HISPANIC AND AFRICAN AMERICAN NEIGHBORHOOD…WHERE MY TRUE FRIENDS ARE…PEOPLE OF COLOR…GOD WILL GIVE ME THE TIME HE WISHES…I’M HAPPY WITH WHATEVER THAT IS.:)

    A second aid convoy in a week is reported to have entered the besieged rebel-held Syrian town of Madaya.

    Some 40 lorries carrying flour, medical supplies and hygiene products departed Damascus on Thursday morning.

    A good friend of mine just moved to Omaha a few months ago to get back together with the husband she divorced that I introduced her to! I KNEW he was the man for her, all these years. But we discussed her very strong, outspoken liberal beliefs in very red Nebraska. She’s a Chicago girl, for God’s sake. Well, she is snickering like crazy at me right now!

    Amid migration crisis, Obama approves largest-ever expansion of refugee aid.

    President Obama approved an unprecedented increase of refugee aid Wednesday, authorizing $70 million from a special fund set up by Congress to resettle refugees in the United States.

    In both size and scope, the presidential declaration was the largest expansion of the program, known as Emergency Refugee and Migration Assistance, in at least 20 years. Obama last tapped the fund in 2014 to provide $50 million to deal with a refugee crisis in South Sudan.

    Secretary of State John Kerry said Wednesday the the Obama administration was responding to “the worst refugee crisis that the world has seen since the Second World War.” The U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees estimates there were 19.5 million refugees globally at the end of 2014, up 2.9 million from the previous year.

    We haven’t seen the last of Alan Rickman…

    Rickman fans still have a few more things to look forward to.

    His film “Eye in the Sky,” about drone warfare in Kenya, is set for March release. He also did voice work for the upcoming “Alice Through the Looking Glass.”

      And bad at Directing too. The Director for Crede is Ryan Coogler. He was snubbed as well as Michael B. Jordan (Crede)

      And I feel sorry for the Oscar committee – they’ve pissed off the rap group NWA, which the movie “Straight Outta Compton” is based on. Don’t be surprised if they release a song about the committee!🙂

      • January 14, 2016 at 11:59 am

        As I said before the Oscars is the same as the Republican party, all white, except once and a while you will see some minorities. Black women do not get roles, afew black men do, it has improve some but no way enough. And I am tired of the B.S.

      Hi 57, slight change of subject…I became busy at work and didn’t get back to ask you how is Nickelby doing? You told us about Kasper, but not your other baby🙂

        Oh, Gail, thanks for asking! Nickelby is fine, they got all of the tumor on the rim of his eye and he’s healed up completely. Of course, he is now expecting homemade meals from Mommy as well.

            Hold that thought, Gail. I need to quit this job for this sociopath and find another way to make a living! I still dream of writing children’s books starring my dogs, but I need an illustrator. And time. And talent…….

      Excellent. As I was saying a few days ago, PBO should skip the blue states and do the campaigning only in the swing states for senate and about 40 to 50 congressional CD’s where the dems lost by slim margins in the last few years.

      • 110 57andfemale
        January 14, 2016 at 11:52 am

        Dems must get to work taking back the states. This is where the trouble brews and precedents and momentum are set.

        It is so maddening, amk. For 40 years, we’ve watched the GOP march to the right, all the while saying “they’re nuts” as if that was going to stop them. We still haven’t learned how to fight politics on 21st century terms.

        So any small victory is to be celebrated. And build upon.

    And now the sad news of Alan Rickman’s death makes me want to watch all the Harry Potter movies.

    Choices, choices……..

    Okay we have the answer, no need to ask if the First Lady will run for President ever again. POTUS just answer that question, he said there are three things in life that are certain, death, taxes, and Michelle will never run for President. 🙂

    India tops in sending scientists, engineers to the US.

    India continued its trend of being the top country of birth from Asia for immigrant scientists and engineers in US, with 950,000 out of the continent’s total 2.96 million, according to a new report.

    From 2003 to 2013, the number of scientists and engineers residing in the US rose from 21.6 million to 29 million. This 10-year increase included significant growth in the number of immigrant scientists and engineers, from 3.4 million to 5.2 million, the researchers said.

    Of the immigrant scientists and engineers in the US in 2013, 57 per cent were born in Asia, 16 per cent were born in Europe, 6 per cent were born in Africa, 20 per cent were born in North America (excluding the US), Central America, the Caribbean, or South America, and less than 1 per cent were born in Oceania.

    Among Asian countries, India continued its trend of being the top country of birth for immigrant scientists and engineers, with 950,000 out of Asia’s total 2.96 million.

      Sigh. Because we have schools learning idiocy, conflating corrupt religion and politics and being anti-science, anti-reality.

      This starts on the state level, and we need to fight the hell back.

      I don’t need this article to confirm this statement. Here in Southern California and in the industry I work in, we have a whole lot of engineers from India or of Indian heritage.

      Recently saw a map of US states and the largest immigrant group in PA is Indian, probably because of all the medical centers and research centers. Now I wish more Indian chefs would emigrate to the US. You really have to be near a city to find a decent Indian restaurant.
