    JD and Abbie: Captured Before the Rapture

    I don't watch this show, but it sounds like TLC did what a lot of other shows are doing: adding a minute amount of new footage to a clip show and calling it a NEW EPISODE.
  2. I was disappointed that MM was on Steven Colbert, but I'm sure he often has guests that he didn't choose himself. I noticed that he opened with the obligatory "so sorry about your father", but we all know that even if he hadn't brought it up, Meghan would have. She really doesn't have anything else to talk about except her father. One thing I found interesting was when Steven was asking her about the eulogy. He said "When you wrote the eulogy...." I think it's pretty clear that Meghan didn't write that speech, but she jumped on the opening and said a couple of times "I wrote it", but as she continued on, she forgot and said "When we were writing it..." She should have just admitted that while she and her family certainly had input on the content, the speech itself was written by a professional. No one expects a grieving family to pop out a great speech like that without help.

    Was her husband there? I wasn't paying close attention, but I thought she was standing there with her father.

    "The View": Week Of 1/28/2019

    I'm considering donating a bag of kitty litter to our local shelter in Meghan's name along with a request that the shelter send a thank you tweet to Meg's Twitter.

    The People's Court

    I think the livestock owner finally admitted that he did 16 years for trying to put out a hit on the guy his first wife was having an affair with. That guy wasn't a judge, though, no one knew where the def came up with that. When asked, she said someone told her the almost victim was a judge (I suspect she made it up hoping to poison the plaintiff to MM). The plaintiff also said that he'd since given up his property and moved away, so there won't be any further problems between he and the defendant. Smart move, because he had photographs of the defs two remaining dogs on his property barking at another of his cows and her calf. It's obvious that the def has no intention of ever keeping her dogs home, and they're going to be a problem until someone else takes a gun and takes care of the problem for her. BTW, in every place I've lived, a ranch owner has the right to shoot any animal that is harrassing his stock. These laws are as old as the US, farmers and ranchers are the backbone of our ability to feed our people, and they need to be able to protect their livlihood.

    The People's Court

    I think we've all known one of those bitchy 'friends' like the bride from hell. I think the Defendant was one of her doormat 'friends' that she's probably spent most of their aquantance putting down and talking about behind her back, but that type goes through friends so fast they have to keep the ones who are too beaten down to leave. But when the Defendant went back to her boyfriend against bridzillas wishes, it was time to make her pay. Get her in a car with a bunch of other bridesmaids that the def doesn't know, wait until they're gunning it down the highway, then start her crap. Tell everyone all about the loser boyfriend, her financial issues, and mention that her fiance said that he wanted everyone to stay safe, except for the defendant, if someone had to die, it should be her. Sneak off for breakfast without her, and then get caught saying rude things about her when she was supposed to have left the room, and then blame her for everything for not playing along when she's being bullied and humiliated by her so-called friend. The bride was awful, and the defendant is better off without her as a friend. I hope she and her groom tear each other into little pieces with their rude comments and one upmanship.

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    Sometimes people get along better with their family when they don't live in each other's pockets. Maybe Jinger doesn't like the noise and chaos of the TTH. Everyone vying for attention, insisting on holding the baby so they can get their picture taken, the intrusive questions, etc. With many large families, when people are visiting from out of town, the family visits in shifts and maybe there's one or two periods of time where they all get together as a bunch, but if you want a quality visit, you don't try to join a crowd of 30 and expect to get much out of it. The Duggars seem to be incapable of backing off, they all want to act as a mob. At Jinger's in-laws, she's the only new mom, Jeremy is the only new dad, and their baby is the absolute center of adoration and attention. There's plenty of time to talk to everyone and hold the baby, so they're probably not grabbing the poor thing from her mothers arms just so they can make sure they've had their turn. I bet even the presents are wrapped and not stuffed into a garbage bag with their name scrawled on it.
  8. I think that could be helpful for parents trying to explain to their other kids why the new baby had to stay in the hospital after Mom was ready to come home. But I would question why an adult would want such a doll otherwise.

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    Up until Junior High, our school gave us our vaccinations. Mom found it easier to pay $5 per vaccine per kid than to take us to the Health Department or to a doctor. The school kept track of our records, let the parents know when shot days were, and the kids whose parents signed off on it would line up and get our shots. Get in line, go to the first person standing their with their shot gun, they'd look at the card we had hanging around our neck and if we needed that particular shot we'd get it. Take another couple of steps, get our card checked again, etc. At the end of the line, those of us who needed to get our Polio vaccines would get a sugar cube with some red liquid squirted over it. We were all terribly brave, because no one wanted to be one of those kids who freaked out and had to be taken to the nurses office to get their shots in private. Everyone knew that was reserved for the screamers. Those who missed the first shot day were taken out of class a week or so later and got their shots then. Every so often a kid was so terrified of needles that their parents were called to come calm them down so they could get it all done. Mom always warned us that if we thought getting a shot was bad, we'd think it was a picnic compared to what would happen if she had to be called to the school to calm us down. I was always amazed at what kids would tease the poor needle-phobes and which ones would rise to their defense.

    Well, Cheaters is fake, but I know what you mean. Years ago, there was a show (20/20, Primetime Live, etc?) that would occasionally follow disability scammers and prove to the world that they were lying about their health issues. I really liked it when they'd walk up to some guy just finishing a 10 mile hike and ask him where his crutches were. For some reason those people were never glad to see the camera crew. I met a woman a few times who married one of those cretins. She worked, he didn't. He was always being chased by the cops for various infractions and they didn't catch him very often because he could run like the wind, jump a fence like a deer, and zig zag through traffic like Frogger on crack. I asked one of his relatives one time where he worked, because I heard someone talk about his paycheck. I was told that he "worked for the state". Found out later that was code for getting disability benefits for a fake injury. Yeah, Mr. Parkour supposedly had a back injury so severe he could barely walk.
  11. Is it time to lure Josh back into the bedroom with a sandwich? "Here Joshua! Look! A sandwich! Made just for you! Here boy! Come and get it! Good boy! Now, there's just one little thing you have to do first... Get up on the bed. Come on. Good boy! Now just close your eyes and think of pastrami. That's it! Think of cheese! Oohh, yes, that's the ticket! Mustard! Oh yes, mustard is the best! Pickles, Joshua, pickles! We're almost there! Onion! Yesss, onion on Rye! We did it!!!!! Joshua, I think you deserve a treat. After your sandwich, how about we get you some ice cream?"

    Good thing they had God on their side, they'd never have been able to have all that stuff happen otherwise.

    Also, and I could be wrong here because Josh has never been one of my favorite people to pay attention to, but I think that the FRC was already trying to think of a way to get rid of Josh when the molestation scandle broke. When he first went to Washington, they trotted him out a lot to give speeches and go on jaunts to community meetings and such. But he was not a good public speaker and even people who shared his beliefs often found his personality to be off-putting. He had the name recognition and was a staunch conservative Christian, but he's not likeable when interacting with him one on one, and I think his home schooling was worse than his employers realized, so he was pretty inept even when he was stuck out of sight at a desk job. I think he might have realized that he wasn't long for the FRC, because he bought a house near the TTH just before the shit hit the fan. I don't know what excuse he would have given for leaving Washington to go back home, but I'm sure it wasn't "Everyone knows I molested my sisters and now no one wants to play with me, so I'm going to take my ball and go home." Derick doesn't have the scandal-ridden past like Josh, but even then he's such a jackass that it's a toss up over who I'd pick if I were forced to spend an hour with one of them. Congrats, Derick, you've managed to achieve Josh levels of loathing and you didn't even have to molest anyone to do it.

    Roku is the best. Completely changed the way I watch TV. I didn't understand it at first but just clicking on different channels available on the Home screen was enough for me to figure out a lot of its abilities. Now if I want to watch You Tube, Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, etc., I can sit in my comfy chair instead of sitting in front of the computer. I also like the music channels. There's even an America's Test Kitchen channel, although it only plays the episodes from the current season, so it's limited in entertainment value. You still need a paid account to view Netflix and the like, but it's still nice to have.

She is a pompous ass just like her dad and her husband. She's convinced she does everything so perfectly, so why in the world would she need to grow or change? Well, don't leave us hangin. Is she happy? If so, YAY!! Then Dariafan said: She licked my face after I asked her, so I’m going with Yes she is happy:). Tomorrow is her rescuversary so we are having non beige foods for her. Our diets begin on Han 2 ------------------------------------ OK, this is weird. Are we still talking about Jill here? Because I'm not sure I want to know why she's licking your face, but thanks for rescuing her, I guess.
