    I stand corrected in that Lebron surpassed Kobe on Saturday. Don't know where I came up with Thursday. Kobe was a local favorite for the Philadelphia area (went to suburban school) so all the local channels are carrying the news. Noted that one of the local grocery chains/stores is going to go bagless soon. Part of the 'green movement'. I try to recycle my shopping bags when poss, but I receive my groceries via a Shop-From-Home program. Can't figure how they could do something like 'bagless'.

    Trump would like us to believe a statistical impossibility: that he is never wrong. Good luck getting that apology.

    Aw, heck, amoLu! I'm 70, and have crushes on actors who passed away many years ago. When I watch old black and white movies, no one can tell whether or not I may be secretly drooling behind my closed lips.

    Rest in peace, Kobe Bryant

    He was a hero to many here in Los Angeles. Since he joined the Lakers at age 17 I think I heard people talking about him every day and at all family holidays. One year I gave my stepson a CD of his favorite Christmas music. His aunt asked him to play it. He said, "Not now! It's Christmas and Kobe and the Lakers are playing! Lost of disbelief on our block. Neighbors know what he tweeted last night. A tragic loss of Kobe and his four friends. PS: As I was posting I heard on the radio that Kobe's daughter was also killed in the crash: https://www.tmz.com/2020/01/26/kobe-bryant-killed-dead-helicopter-crash-in-calabasas/

    In the meanwhile, here's another good'n: Jesus, Moses and a bearded man were playing golf. Jesus teed up and hit the ball and it landed on the water. He walked across the water to the ball and hit it over onto the green. Moses was up next, and as his golf-ball approached the water, the water parted, and he went and hit it up onto the green. The bearded guy approached his ball, took a good swing and as the ball was flying over the reeds at waterside, a frog jumped up and gulped it in. At that moment, an eagle grabbed the frog in his talons. Just then a gunshot was heard, and the eagle fell on to the edge of the green, letting go of the frog as he fell. The frog landed hard and the golf-ball jumped out of its mouth, rolling into the hole. Moses said, "Jesus, I hate playing golf with your Father."

    I saw this item, and frankly, the organization should demand an apology from Marsha Blackburn on behalf of Lt Col. Vindman, for her vile remarks. It amazes me that anybody would still think Trump and Friends care at all about US troops. It is painfully obvious that Trump and Friends don't give a crap about our veterans or troops.

    What Dean always said at the end of his TV show: "Put the coffee on, honey, I'm coming home."

    Rest in peace, Kobe Bryant

    Story on line about Kobe Bryant being killed in a helicopter crash this morning. Left behind his wife and 3 or 4 children. He was 41 years old.

    At the grocery store, the baggers were having an argument about the veracity of the online story about Kobe Bryant dying in a helicopter crash this morning. Unfortunately it's true. Rest in peace, Kobe.
  12. I still have not decided on a "liberal candidate" since there are so many and I listed what I want in a candidate.

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    VFW Expects Apology From POTUS ‘TBI is a serious injury and one that cannot be taken lightly’ "In light of today's announcement from the defense department that 34 U.S. service members suffered traumatic brain injuries as a result of Iran's retaliatory strike and President Trump's remarks which minimized these troops’ injuries, the Veterans of Foreign Wars cannot stand idle on this matter. TBI is a serious injury and one that cannot be taken lightly. TBI is known to cause depression, memory loss, severe headaches, dizziness and fatigue — all injuries that come with both short- and long-term effects. The VFW expects an apology from the president to our service men and women for his misguided remarks. And, we ask that he and the White House join with us in our efforts to educate Americans of the dangers TBI has on these heroes as they protect our great nation in these trying times. Our warriors require our full support more than ever in this challenging environment." — William “Doc” Schmitz, VFW National Commander The letter: https://www.vfw.org/media-and-events/latest-releases/archives/2020/1/vfw-expects-apology-from-potus A newspaper article: https://www.military.com/daily-news/2020/01/26/vfw-commander-calls-trump-apologize-headaches-remark-about-injured-troops.html

    Hello, all! We've got some major, deep and wide confusion going on this morning in guess-whose brain. Can barely pull a sentence together, never mind the thought behind it. Wow. I'm going out to the grocery store to pick up a few of the items we always run out of first. Nothing else right now ...

    I don't think I would like the sandwich Tweety had at the gay owned restaurant. Last year I went to San Diego to see my friend since age 12. She took me to a restaurant with a three story's high ceiling. Almost all the had was various mac and cheeses. She ordered one that was bland with crumbled hamburger meat . There were 21 different extra sauces we could ask for. I enjoyed her company , not the food. Glad BCgradnurse had a good vacation. Joe: That is awful that J has to deal with a scam while sick and in pain. At the fish market they encouraged me to get filet of sole. I did and pan fried four in corn meal. Three are in the freezer. He enjoyed the one he had with his meal. This morning he is dozing in the chair after having crumbled cornbread with buttermilk.

    Morning Tweety. Nice to have a break after a difficult day at work Yesterday was busy, cooking in the morning for myself and the church potluck. Also managed to exercise and do some more embroidery. Have almost completed the search for a dentist, something I've been meaning to do for months. Watched Svengoolie last night since he had a movie I hadn't seen in a while J has apparently been caught by a credit card scam, via an offer to transfer a balance to a new card at 0%. He's trying to get that straightened out, is still getting over the flu, and his sciatica is acting up. So needless to say we're going to hold off on getting together until some of this gets resolved Today is the annual meeting and potluck at church, so service starts an hour early Going a bit early to drop off food and to practice with the choir. Rest of the day should be fairly quiet
  21. Good Morning! BC, safe travels home today and glad you had a much deserved vacation. Best wishes to your finance in his interviews. J22, did you see Doolittle? I get annoyed sometimes with remakes of the good movies over again. This is what the third remake? Work was a bit challenging yesterday, but garden variety. Just little annoyances like an admission I got 60 seconds notice on because they forgot to beep me and there was no bed on the unit and I had to get one from next door, an IV that fell out of a hard stick obese patient with a stat dose of solumedrol, a picc line that wouldn't draw blood and needed activase (?), on and on and on. I was so tired from the insomnia the night before I could barely eat dinner before falling fast asleep. Slept well with my sleeping pill and was surprised when the alarm rang thinking "am I working today?? It's my day off isn't it? Please it's my day off why is this alarm ringing. Dammit". One of those "rude awakenings". Ha! Hope everyone has a great day.
