  1. @Bastet, When my cousin and her hubby were first married, she attempted to cook, which she had never done before. She used the expensive pots and pans that were wedding gifts. Well, she burned whatever she was cooking and instead of trying to scrub the pans clean, she threw them away. Of course we were all gobsmacked. I said I wish I had known about it when it happened. I would have gotten them out of the trash and kept them. They were much nicer than I had at the time. She is now 71 and has never cooked a real meal. If they don't go out, they have sandwiches, canned soup or something from the deli. On topic: it is so satisfying to be able to do DIY repairs and save money. I've added sprinkler head repair to my repertoire. And a few weeks ago I replaced one of the bathroom faucets. It took me longer than a plumber would take but I saved at least $150. This is the second one I've replaced. My dad would be so proud.

    Don't forget to tell JJ how you feel. Because she loves to hear about your feelings.
  3. I think that was a rerun. I remember seeing it sometime ago.

  5. The Buffet Line: All-Seasons Discussion

    I gave up Say Yes to the Dress because it had gotten so ridiculous and this new format is about to cause me to take this show off the DVR. It takes me several days to view because I can only stomach one bride at a time and I FF through all the groom bonding. Although those lanterns are pretty when in the air, and especially over water, I worry about damage they can do while aflame and the impact on the environment when the flame goes out and they fall. I presume they add to the waste in water, in trees, etc. Seems irresponsible to me. But it's all for the win, I guess! Why can't couples sit at a table with some of their family or guests? What's the purpose of the sweetheart table?
  6. Small Talk: We'll Be Right Back

    This commercial doesn't irritate me or anything but it got me to thinking. A guy wakes up before anyone else, orders groceries from the Walmart app, picks up said groceries and cooks and serves breakfast to wife in bed. Does anyone really like to eat in bed? I don't. He served her fluffy waffles, fruit, fried egg, juice. Heck, if I am going to dig in to that, I want to be sitting at a table where I don't drop a morsel and where I can show that plate of food who's boss! I never thought being served food in bed sounded like a treat.

    Stop!! You are killing me and I feel so bad about laughing about it!
  8. Small Talk: Judge's Chambers

    Thanks for that, @Brattinella. Oh, the memories that brings back. And in my reading about Barry's death, I discover that Billy died the day before the Newport memorial for Barry. So sad. He had emphysema among other things. And although Katrina was in August, Barry wasn't identified until December or January. 😢 @PsychoKlown, what did your sister say when you told her about the memorial and that you brought a bit of Barry home with you?
  9. Small Talk: Judge's Chambers

    @PsychoKlown, I know it is disrespectful of the dear departed to say this, but your story gave me so many belly laughs! I would have shipped the parka to sister since she was the real fan. Or you could have put it on eBay! I did have a crush on the Cowsills back in the day but never had posters or other memorabilia and my crush was short-lived until the next Tiger Beat heartthrob came along. I have to say, I did not know that Barry died in Katrina. I'm off to read all about that sad story. Thanks for the very entertaining story. It was worth the wait.
  10. What's Cooking? Cooking Shows, That's What

    I remember that show, too, and think that the lady in the squabbling LA cake partners was Reva, the red head of the winning Wedding Cake Championship show that just wrapped up. She has been on lots of cake competition shows and Halloween Wars. I guess she and her cake partner and her hubby all split because on WCC, she and her cake partner are from Georgia. In another show you mentioned, Christopher who produced incredible sculptural cakes, was married to the tiny, darling Asian lady who he good-naturedly sparred with. That fact wasn't mentioned but I was so impressed with their creations that I googled the bakery.

    (Arms folded, toe tapping) okay, you janky mason, where is the story? Back in the day I had a ridiculous crush on the Cowsills. Don't make me come over there and knock out your toof.

  14. Small Talk: Judge's Chambers

    Oh crap! My other pics of the judge's cute doggie and the dog who was the subject of today's case are too large to upload. I'll see if I can crop. But Judge Rinder's FB page has lots of pics of his dog. And the judge is so sweet and indulging with the litigants. The entire time while watching this show I was shouting JJ-isms because I am programmed to do so. Judge Rinder doesn't seem to be anal about heresay or how we feel. I just loved that I stumbled on this show based on JJ in another country. Oh! And when I found JJ on another station, there was one of those "this may not be suitable " warnings! I can see why. Judge Rinder is so darling and I guess people who don't have multiple baby daddies/mamas don't take their shit on Telly over here. His dog has his own collar!
