  1. I wonder if HGTV would consider doing a Where are They Now - After the Storm?
  2. I would think the last thing you would want when you have two very young children is a cement floor. The screaming and crying (and barking) bouncing off of all of those hard surfaces.... YIKES! I get a headache just thinking about it.
  3. I thought that the girl in Bendigo something to the effect that their were eight kids in her family, ranging in age from 4 to 23 years old. I would guess she is the oldest, which means she is very young to have moved to the U.S., met and got married to him. Did they say how she met the asshole or what either was doing to earn a living, either in the States or Australia? He looked older than her by at least a few years, but I don't recall them saying.
  4. I think I was about 12 the last time I worried about being a "cool girl". And if your cool status is dependent on outside elements, i.e. a house, doesn't that mean that you are not actually cool?
  5. When they were playing their "music", to me they sounded like a bunch of kids let loose in a band room. Are they really trying to make money as a band?
  6. I was under the impression that the purpose of a backsplash, especially behind a sink or oven, is to provide a non porous surface that will be easy to clean. So why do so many use the tiny tiles with tons of grout lines? I guess for those that only microwave, or chop peppers, it is fine.
  7. Not only did Hampton lady paint the brick on the house, she painted the brick porch floor. That will look like hell in short order. Besides the dirt that will lodge in every crevice, the paint will wear off with a quickness. The house they bought was the one with three walls of windows in the master bedroom, right? I would hate that. I think I would find a way to build on and use that room as a living area. But then again, I don't get the desire to have a view from the bedroom. How much time do you spend in there gazing out the window?
  8. So, only a hundred years to wait? And that is assuming the prospects work out.
  9. If someone is making Gracie feel like she does not have a "lean body", as per the article, then skating needs to take a long look at what is going on, both at the elite level and well before that.
  10. I have to admit, I teared up a little hearing about JV being traded. He really seemed like he wanted to stay a Tiger for his whole career. Part of me understands the desire to win a World Series, which wasn't likely to happen with Detroit in the next few years. But another part of me feels like loyalty to the fans doesn't mean a damn thing any more. I know the Tigers PTB are trying to sell these trades as a good thing, but fans just want to see a good team. Cutting the bankroll isn't exactly thrilling to watch. And trading five good, established big leaguers for 10 prospects that may never see a day in the bigs isn't exactly a popular move. Consensus among fans is that Ausmus needs to go next. Then Avila. Should be an interesting off-season. Sad that's all I have to look forward to. My only consolation is that Verlander didn't go to the Yankees.
  11. Well, I guess the Tigers are not planning on playing in the post-season for the next several years. Trading Justin Upton this afternoon and now Justin Verlander - for prospects. To recap - they traded their best hitter, J.D Martinez, for prospects, their best relief pitcher, Justin Wilson, and best hitting catcher, Alex Avila, for prospects, their hottest hitter, Justin Upton, for prospects and their best pitcher for the last decade, Justin Verlander, for prospects. (Heh, I just realized the Tigers traded 3 Justins in one season.) What are the Tigers' prospects for happy fans? Poor, at best.
  12. To me, Danny's whining is far worse. Steve is controlling because he is allowed to be. All Danny has to do is stand up to him. That he chooses not to is on him.
  13. Qoass, what is the name of the small batch cookbook? I think I need to try cooking that way; maybe have fewer leftovers and more variety.
  14. Who is Andrea Nittoli? Another "star" I am supposed to be familiar with?
  15. How the hell did Betances not get suspended for hitting James McCann? Even if you give him the benefit of the doubt about hitting him in the head, only an idiot would think that hitting him was an accident. At least give him a game or two, to make it look like MLB doesn't approve.
