  1. So maybe he really did believe that Pres. Obama wasn't born in America. Ignorant but sincere?
  2. What's For Dinner?

    My favorite omelette: roasted red bell peppers & goat cheese. Served with Triscuits instead of toast (because using the toaster while the air conditioner is running blows a fuse), followed by canteloupe balls tossed with lime juice & honey.

    I'm surprised that you still consider this person your friend, when she treats you with such disrespect. She sounds like someone I finally dropped because I was tired of waiting for her, & I don't miss her at all.
  4. TCM: The Greatest Movie Channel

    It's not defamation, which requires publication of a falsehood. But if I make money by using something that belongs to you (your image, your words, etc.), then I should get your permission for my use of your property, or else pay for it. In general, see Calif law governing the right to publicity. I have no idea what the legal basis of her lawsuit may be, but the Calif statute's general principle seems to apply.
  5. What's For Dinner?

    Oddly enough, since I stopped eating meat & poultry 10 years ago, Spam is one of the few things I really miss (along with bacon & corned beef). And I'm not even from Hawaii!
  6. "The View": Week Of 6/25/17

    So she's the target audience for the Liberty Mutual commercials featuring people who don't understand how car insurance works! I've been wondering who in the world is that stupid &/or ignorant.
  7. Chit-Chat

    As you realize now that you're awash in flies, even a so-called "better" mousetrap follows the law of unintended consequences. You needed to address the mouse issue properly from the beginning, as I trust you will next time (& there will be a next time, believe me).
  8. Chit-Chat

    Living in earthquake country, I learned to fill up when the gauge is at the halfway mark. If the electricity goes out for a day or more & none of the local fuel pumps work, you'll be glad your car has at least half a tank of gas.
  9. Speaking of Liberty Morons (!), I just realized that Brad's girl hasn't been seen lately -- at least not by me, thank goodness.
  10. Chit-Chat

    Last time I was in the hospital, I learned a trick to avoid tasteless hospital meals: ask for a meatless menu & you might be able to choose Indian dishes (which you may or may not like, but at least they're never bland). Wishing you strong painkillers & flavorful food, JTMacc99 -- & a speedy recovery too.
  11. Pet Peeves

    Cops. Who also refer to "an individual" instead of "a person", & say things like "the driver's head collided with the pavement & he became deceased". Language mangling isn't an innate skill, so they must take classes in it at the Police Academy.
  12. What's For Dinner?

    Heat wave here, so I had a root beer float for dinner last night. But my energy was too sapped by the heat to finish it, so there were leftovers & those turned into breakfast this morning. Not healthy, but so good I may do the same thing tonight & tomorrow morning.
  13. Sounds like this Bizarro cartoon.
  14. What's For Dinner?

    What kind of wine pairs well with lemon yogurt? Depends on what kind of chips, perhaps?
  15. What's For Dinner?

    Here in Silicon Valley, we have a lot of "ethnic markets" (Mexican, Portuguese, Asian, Middle Eastern, Russian), all of which have butchers -- not to mention a huge variety of meats, poultry, seafood, & many different cuts thereof. If you can find even just one store like that, you'll be set.
