Oh, Jerry, I’m so sorry.  You’re always someone who brings me joy on here, and I hope you’ll accept a virtual hug from a virtual stranger.  I can’t imagine how difficult it must be to lose someone you love and not be able to celebrate their life and mourn their passing as you might in normal times.

That’s a great point that hadn’t occurred to me. Everything in that room does scream “stager.” Read more

I kind of love it.  But it would fit better with a more modern/eclectic vibe.  It just doesn’t go with the pastels and Pottery Barn couches.  The hanging pendants are also quite cool.

Are they playing skee ball in that first pic?  If so, all the rules I found confirmed that you are supposed to *roll* the ball, not throw it overhand.  Or maybe the Brits do it differently, like driving on the other side of the road?

Mulan is hard to beat! The songs and overall message are among the strongest of all the big Disney “princess” movies. As the parent of mixed Asian kids, it’s a powerful first-hand reminder of why representation is so important. (Not to mention, Li Shang is super hot—not unlike the former Army Captain I married.)

Some things are basic because they’re just that good, and Jason Momoa is one of them. In addition to his size and his unique and stunning looks, he has a joy, energy and charisma to him that’s magnetic.

I commend Ellen for her bravery in coming out publicly, and for enduring unemployment as a result, until she came back onto the scene with Finding Nemo and Finding Dory. With her show, she’s changed many hearts and minds by being the Lesbian who Americans knew and liked. She’s broken down many barriers, and in that Read more

My husband and I call that “Fuck you” money.  Where we would no longer have to answer to anyone, and could structure our time and lives as we please.  Obviously dedicating some of that time and money to the service of others.

You offer great points. I don’t *think* he will, but it’s 2020, so who knows anything anymore? Read more

I’ve recently become very keen on Duckworth as a VP pick—she has the Senate experience, is a decorated combat vet, mother, and all-around badass while remaining humble. There is little Trump can do to criticize her that doesn’t make him look (more) awful (does that even matter any more?). Read more

WOW, so glad you did!  My mom is a trainer, and she sweats buckets in the summer.  As a result, she had gotten lax about wearing her helmet in the heat.  I was probably around the same age as your niece, and gave my mom the business about it.  Since then, she has worn a helmet religiously, and openly admits that she Read more

How terrifying. Glad you are largely ok, and hope the injury doesn’t cause you too much lasting pain. Read more

When I treat myself to fries, I order a side of BBQ sauce at the time I place my order. It’s hit-or-miss as to whether it comes, so I’ll go with ketchup as a back-up, but it’s a bit of a disappointment if I don’t get that hot fry with BBQ sauce bliss. Read more

I know it’s not as common in Western riding, but I really wish they were wearing helmets. The kid in particular. Both for safety and to set an example, given the obscene reach of KK’s influence. Read more

Yeah, as a parent I’m inclined to take that quote with a big grain of salt. See the fact that he mentions snuggling with her further down. I’m no KK fan, but kids come out with really random shit on the spot—I can remember several of these when my kids were really young, and the answers were totally out there.
