Good Morning Class. Welcome to School!

Here is my example with WFTD.

Within their coterie of communist cronies, this administration has a significant number of muslims.

No pushing at the door please!

The Obama coterie is about to find out what it means to be held accountable.

It’s a beautiful day today, isn’t it? A bit chilly, at 37 degrees, but a lovely day nonetheless.

Nice to see, 8 games into the postseason, that the Penguins decided to start acting like they care.

And for those not inclined to watch hockey, tonight Jack Bauer returns!

There were uncharacteristically harsh words for Crosby and the Penguins in the pregame, on that score. Speaking of scoring, did 87 score? i watched the first 2 periods but then went up to bed.

No goals, no. Not that he had no impact, mind you. Still not doing so hot on faceoffs.

The game was tense until about 3 minutes left, when the Pens scored the insurance goal. Then the empty netter makes it 3-0.

The “dudes” in Barack’s little coterie
Spin in circles like some devilish rotary
But they’re all getting hosed
As Benghazi’s exposed
Come November, count votes with a notary

The current event this word reminds me of is last weekend's nerd prom. The coterie gathers to hear Obama laugh at and not with others.

the third definition of coterie: a group of prairie dogs occupying a communal burrow, reminds me of the fawning adulation of the Whitehut press corpse (intentional misspelling because journalism is dead.)

The coterie of Crosby bashers needs to note that it’s not only scoring goals that makes a difference. He has played really well, in spite of the rumor of a nagging back injury, and has led the team. Lundqvist was outstanding.

Had a nice weekend. The twins' First Communion was this weekend. They were adorable. Only 11 in this year's class. Sad, used to be tons more when my kiddies were little.

You belong to the wrong coterie! I submit:

Convict Jackson Jr. gets $8.7k a month disability for “mood disorder.” I should be so crazy.

Call your headache a 'mood disorder' and claim disability payments for it!

beautifuL! love the dresses! first communion was at St James this past weekend also. i went to 8:30 am Mass and communion was slated for 10:30. they had a sign on the door telling first communion parents to wait until Mass was over to come in. And Father Happy Slap did the Mass to make sure it was done expeditiously. no sermon and we were out in 25 min. No way he was going to let Father Horkin do it, bc he goes on forever [young guy, but prob on the aspergers spectrum and ritualistic to a fault] and the first communion parents would be storming the doors!

Nice video. Are the twins yours, and which ones were they?

We had some sad news this weekend; our Assistant Pastor (from Colombia, SA and a 2 year old priest) has been transferred to Burlington, WI. We all love Fr. Yamid Blanco. He gave the most tender ‘goodbye’, thanking us all for helping him to grow on his path from ‘baby’ priest to where he is today. He received the longest standing O I’ve ever heard in our church.

The Archbishop is sending him to Burlington where he will rotate among 3 churches, saying Spanish Masses and catering to Spanish speaking parishioners.

This is a man who came here from Colombia to enter the Seminary and spoke not a word of English at the time. He’s doing so well with his language that the congregation now laughs on cue when he tells jokes. We couldn’t understand him at all when he joined us 2 years ago. Now, everybody understands him.

But, there was a big laugh when he bid us ‘goodbye’ with his usual “Ciao, ciao!” and the organizt answered, “Auf Wiederzwein!” representing our largely German population.

For leadership on the Left, the criterion is to be from a coterie of ‘Rats from the same hole…

Hope you’re better soon (too much Cinco de Cuatro partying yesterday ;?)

just teasing about the ball and chain, one of xshub’s friends always brings his wife along to the fairly regular conferences they attend, now that their kids are all grown and out of the house and xshub will always relate to me that X brought the old ball and chain again. She is the only woman he’s ever referred to that way, and it is actually pretty understandable, knowing her. She’s a contrarian, very negative and just obstreperous. I don’t like talking to her either.
