Oooohh. ((shudder)) A+++
Very interesting to see judges question him like this. Love it. A+++
Love it. Great ad. Make him look like a light weight celebrity punk...that beer OMG...hilarious.
DH was devastated. Jon Bones Jones brother from Syracuse University, Chandler Jones, was the first round pick of the Patriots, his arch enemy team, and our SIL’s team. I texted her last night and she had no idea who he was. The shame of it. The Jones brothers grew up near me, the Champ Jonny Bones lives in Ithaca now. Love the Jones Brothers.
And you are right, this added major jobs to O’s record. LOL
Meant to ping you too.....did you see the SU player who was a first round draft pick? Exciting.
A+++ We need a great economy, not more wealth redistribution.
The pop culture king strikes again. A+++
In this survery of briefs and summeries apercu is just the French misspelling of PapercuT. What can you do with people who just won't learn English after all this time?
Course it might be TapercuP or the past pucker of the additive of aper something or................I don't know French too good.
Thanks, my dear.
Always entertaining. A+++
Mentioned it to you this morning, but Rep Trey Gowdy gave Ms. Sebelius (Say Bilious?) a brief aperçu of the difference between compelling interest and constitutionality. Swoonalicious. I’m sorry, Allen West, I feel like I am cheating on you....
And, after they see their first paychecks, hundreds of economic conservatives are born!
So it’s an all Patrick Division semifinal in the East.
Aperçu, le deludé! *
