Ping to the list! Thank you, Lysie, for getting us started today.

This is the “official” thread. Please disregard the other one. I’ve asked for it to be deleted.

Happy New Year, all! I will be in my shop most of the day, building my carriage house doors to replace the roll-ups that do nothing to keep the shop warm.

Last year we stemmed the tide of the left. This year, we hold the GOP's feet to the fire.

Next year we kick ass and take names!

Happy New Year and God's blessings to all! Sorry I've been away from posting.... I really appreciate the kind regards of those who posted to me....and wish to thank you (belatedly)...

My dad is in a nursing home now....(& sadly it's been on quarantine for over a week, even during Christmas due to a gastorintestinal bug).... We didn't even get his phone installed before this happened....so relied on prayer that God would keep his spirits up....(HE did)...and thankfully hasn't yet caught the 'bug'... Life is never dull..... Each one of us have situations that impact us every day.... Truly only God's help, through prayer, is what keeps me going. Wishing you all love and a wonderful New Year.

Happy New Year, Guennie! May God pour His richest blessings on you and your family.

I’m very glad that your dad has escaped the stomach bug. I will pray that he remains bug free. I also will pray that the situation will pass and you’ll be able to visit him soon. You are a good daughter.

You have been missed.

Good morning everybody and Happy New Year! Thanks for the thread and ping, lysie.

Good looking breakfast today. I have all the ingredients ready to make our pannini sandwiches later and the black eye pea salad made. Also made a waldorf salad and the other guests are bringing a green salad and dessert.

I don’t think we’ll go hungry. Rehearsal after lunch we have shows tomorrow and the next night. I don’t feel all that well prepared....

In re: 100 assaults on the Constitution and COngress but we go after only 2:

I hear there is movement afoot to 1) have hearings to arrive at legislation that would exclude areas from reg. agency consideration (e.g. FCC, FDA, etc.), and 2) for cabinet-level abominations (e.g. EPA, Justice, and especially HHS) -- impeachment of cabinet officials.

Not impeachment of Nobama -- he would get a pass, as did Der Schlickmeister -- but the minions that carry out his edicts. Supposedly that would reign back the cabinet through a chilling effect, which would leave Nobama and the Executive Order as his last resort.

I think only by regaining House, Senate and White House will any real rollback be done, but November 2010 was a helluva nice start. The mainstram media downplayed what a catastrophe was for the Dems, but an historic catastrophe it was. May 2012 be even better..;-))

Lysie is fine; she is just on a trip down to Florida. She was havening computer problems and asked if I would ping the list and provide breakfast today. But, as you can see, she did start today’s thread.

Happy New Year to you, dear one. The Ronald Reagan float was wonderful. The slogan was something like, “Freedom is Everyone’s Choice”. I’ll hunt up the actual slogan and post it.

Did you tell her to look in your potted plant section? Very probably y’all are selling it there so she could have had fresh!

I’m sorry you were yelled at. That is never nice especially when you couldn’t smack her back.

When are y’all going to have your next blizzard? It will be rough then, too.

Hi Jemian, Dog...

Sorry about the angry customer today, Jim....not a great way to start the year off...

I've been watching some taped shows as my DVR is getting full, and I've discovered some good programs on the Military Channel which I want to tape!

Thanks, Bit and MKH.

Anyway....good night.

Any of you folks who were Wagon Train fans back in the day.

Seems the ENCWS Channel has been showing a Wagon Train Marathon all day.

It's from early in the series with Major Adams (Ward Bond)

I watched the Wagon Train Marathon all afternoon, until time to go to Mass. It isn’t as good a series as Big Valley, but good, none the less.

Re: Sick of me yet.

Zero seems like the type if you ask him what time it is he tells you how the watch is made.

Or maybe, when you ask Nobama what time it is:

1. He tells you what time it should be, according to his own sense of 'social justice';
2. He tells you that what time it is hasn't mattered since his predecessor screwed up timekeeping for generations to come;
3. He tells you that time keeping is really the job of the government, and so he is instructing his Time Czar to make illegal the private ownership of watches and to take over the timekeeping industry through regulations issued by the National Institute of Standards and Technology;
4. And that the price of timekeeping will 'initially necessarily skyrocket', but will eventually come down to below-market prices once 'alternative time keeping technologies' hit the market.
5. But that 'if you like the watch you have now, you can keep it' -- just like he said about your health insurance, your GM bonds and your guns...

(The sad thing is that instead of satire, the above could become all too true with this crowd...;-))

Good morning.....

Well there was also a Twilight Zone marathon on SyFy....what memories that brought back....old familiar faces....remember Barry Nelson from To Tell the Truth? He was in one...also Cliff Robertson, and so many others whose names we barely knew. Also Bernard Herrmann was credited for composing the music to one of the episodes.

HA! Yes, that about covers it...scarily so....

6. Also: Some of us have too much time & others less, so evaluations by the Time Czar are underway to remedy this inequity. The IRS will be mandated to judge our compliance with "Time Reporting"

And, to forsee the reaction to Nobama's telling you what time it is:

1. John Boehner gives a tearful recounting of how he worked his way through college selling watches before 'putting his name forward for office', and this is all 'chicken something-or-other';
2. Paul Ryan says we can't afford Nobama's plan for the timekeeping industry takeover -- but he has a Timekeeping Roadmap that gets us to solvency by 2020;
3. Krauthammer declares Nobama a political genius yet again for using timekeeping as a wedge issue;
4. Eric Cantor says he can't find a justification for it in the Constitution;
5. Bawney Fwank says it falls under the Commerce Clause, because 'if you go from Massachussetts to New hamshire, you still have to know what time it is";
6. And Justice Sotomayor writes in the majority opinion in Timex v. United States that 'Federal control of timekeeping has been the foundation of the penumbra eminating from Wise Latinas throughout history'

Hehehehe....

Good morning and Happy New Year!

Daughter has moved back home for a while; rocky patch in the marriage which I hope will be resolved according to God’s plan.

I now have TWO dogs here, since daughter brought hers. A chihuahua/ Boston terrier mix and an English shepherd (my dog) are not compatible personality types. Maggie keeps trying to herd Pibby, which causes snarls and snapping. They are settling down a bit, but I might have to contact my local dog whisperer if we don’t get some peaceful co-existence soon.

Husband is still in Ghana, and his mine is making money, so he is in good humor. He has tried to offer assistance to the local village school, because so many of the people are so poor. (And may I add, do not act like they are entitled to things and work hard and are very Christian.) He will be traveling to Manila through Dubai this month. I am staying put until he heads for Europe or perhaps South America on his many travels.

I will keep all of you in my prayers as we enter this new year, which I hope begins the end of the Obama regime and a new appreciation for this country and its Constitution by the people who live within her borders.

God bless you all!

Morning MP, sun out here is so. Mississippi, a tad nip in the air, oatmeal for b’fast.

Allie has her driving permit which means I went on a few trips with her when Tracy had her run errands, this driving thing is going to be a big help to Tracy. She wants to drive me into town tomorrow which I am glad she did, just hate to see my little GD grow up so fast and yes, the phone rings off the wall for her and the marathons have started on the phone. Told D yesterday we are going to have to get a intercom system because she is on the phone so much.

Got caught up watching the left behind series, been a long time, such a great showing.

OK, time for me to start my thing to get ready for church, the kids have found a young preacher they really like and me, the same old, like my church services are more my kind, differend strokes for different folks I always say.

Off to start my getting ready, a sunny day here , no clouds, slight breeze and yes, short sleeve weather still cloudy but that changes quick here.

All have a blessed day, one with lots of love.
Tobu

Many years ago, my priest told me to pray for patience. I did. When he asked if I’d taken his advice I assured him I had. He asked how it was going, I told him it wasn’t working, so I quit asking. I use it only for sewing and painting.
