    The Biden-Harris Administration

    Agreed. But some in the Twitter world are saying the libs have given in too easy. Twitter thankfully doesn’t usually reflect most Americans’ view. I am of the view that waiting on the stubborn few centrists until everything snowballed (debt ceiling, holiday breaks) would be far worse for the...

    The Biden-Harris Administration

    I’m not upset at the liberals for finally agreeing (aside from 6). I mean, for God’s sake, people in Michigan are still dealing with lead in their water. At some point, you’ve just got to take the political blow and get things done. I have little confidence in the “Blue Dogs” but...

    Pandora papers leak exposes offshore accounts including Elvis Stojko

    Bands like U2 have done this for years too. It’s unfair but if done thru the proper channels it is legal, as far as I know. what I think is most disappointing about the Panama Papers is not the entertainers but people like the King of Jordan, who has fourteen luxury homes, totaling about the...

    What, Me Worry? Travels and Travails 2021-22

    I went to the National Parks of Zion, Bryce, and Grand Canyon in early May which was perfect timing before Delta and few crowds. Good weather for hiking at 70 Degrees. my sister went this summer and it was far more challenging. One of the kids got a mild case of ********* (rest were vaccinated...

    What are your plans for “after?”

    I had booked a trip to Paris at the end of august. I’m vaccinated. The CDC just put France on the level 4 danger list, and the EU just discussed how the US numbers are above their threshold. So far, travel is still allowed. I’m hoping it will be the same in three weeks. I’ve been looking...

    What are your plans for “after?”

    I had to cancel my Italy/Croatia trip. So, I hope to be able to rebook that, although I usually plan my trips a few years ahead and this year 2021 was supposed to be Paris with my niece and 2022 was supposed to be Scandinavia with my nephew, and 2023 was going to be New Zealand with my best...

    Just call me Harry. (Everything Harry & Meghan)

    I wasn’t going to watch until I saw this thread and I must admit I was wrong, it is an in depth interview and Oprah did ask some good questions and follow ups. It’s a huge scoop for her. We heard very little about the future, we have maybe five minutes left...it was a downer. Of course, it...

    Just call me Harry. (Everything Harry & Meghan)

    It’s entertaining but there’s a reason he’s there. I used to work in PR at a college so maybe I see things thru that lens. He casually mentioned Meghan and he watch Netflix after putting Archie to bed. He defended the Netflix show “The Crown” as fictional entertainment with some insight...

    Just call me Harry. (Everything Harry & Meghan)

    part of this would be perfect for promoting Invictus (the army course). Harry looked like he was having fun and was impressively fit. But, instead the whole segment seemed to be a promotion of Netflix. This is where they will draw critics from the UK...the Americans will likely accept it...

    Adelina Sotnikova ... WTF

    I remember her as a teenage OGM winner who was over the moon to skate well in her home country and I thought she had a promising future. I disagreed completely with the judging but had no hard feelings personally towards her, and I hope she is happy and healthy in her Post-skating life.

    Katia Gordeeva remarried??

    Katia also has ring on her ring finger in the latest ski photos with Liza. That dog is absolutely adorable! I’m very happy for them, I’ve followed both of their skating careers for years and have enjoyed so many moments. It’s nice that they have found happiness with each other.

    Katia Gordeeva remarried??

    Talking about 25 year old Katia’s personal life when she’s almost 50 is a bit strange. To get back on topic, I could see how David and her would be a good match. He too lost a former skating partner in tragic and unexpected circumstances. He too had a marriage and child (with Jamie) but is...

    Trump, YKW and Fallout

    I think Trump had it, but his family is long-lived. My grandfather’s family is long lived, my grandmother‘s was not. Therefore, my dad and aunt were health conscious but each died early from cancer. My uncle, growing up in the same environment, decided to smoke two packs a day and drink...

    Vice Presidential Debate, Wednesday, Oct. 7, 2020

    But she made it clear she trusted the medical, scientific community and even said she’d be happy to take it herself. What she said was if Donald Trump is the main guy saying take this vaccine (that he personally wants to be putting out before the CDC and FDA really verify the safety of it, by...

    Vice Presidential Debate, Wednesday, Oct. 7, 2020

    Yes, I should have been more clear. Pence would have been a better choice for pro-life conservative women. His religious zeal freaks me out. Trump is (finally) losing the women that voted for him in 2016 with his consistent “I care about me, me, me” personality.
