Tonight’s New Hampshire debate will be hosted by ABC. I may miss it.

    Tebow!! Broncos……woohoo~!!!! What a finish!

      Prayers for his family. Darn!

      I’d just read that, too, Molly. So very sad. He was always very pleasant, very bright, and so young. Last I saw him, he DID look a lot thinner but no mention of his battling cancer.
      Tired of losing so many ‘good guys’ to cancer at young ages. That’s 2 Tony’s now, both who worked for R Administrations, and also both at The Washington Times.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Well expressed ED…I didn’t realize he was a child actor…wonder if I’ve ever seen him in a movie…

    • queenie says:

      That news makes me VERY sad. Tony was only 63 and had stomach cancer. He will be missed. A class act, he was!

  2. Molly Pitcher says:

    Just for your day, lysie Enjoy!

  3. lysie says:

    Rav and Molly , since you mentioned having too much stuff, I’m taking inventory today. I’m sorting through our stuff. I don’t know why I kept some of it? It’s outta here!!

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Hey, it’s a start!

      Have you realized we’re a pair of Birthday Bookends?

      2 weeks before Christmas (me) and 2 weeks after (you), AND now we’re the same age! HA

    • lysie says:

      Hahaha. I love it. Molly and lysie bookends.

    • edinva says:

      lysie, happy, happy birthday to you! Hope you’ve had and are having a glorious day!

    • queenie says:

      …..And then we have Jemian’s Birthday tomorrow!

      HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JEMIAN!!!!!!!! 🙂

    • lysie says:

      Thank you, ed. It’s been a nice day.

      queenie, yes…jem’s birthday tomorrow and my dad’s the next day. 🙂

    • edinva says:

      This must be International Birthday Week. My sons’ birthday was Thursday (5th) and husband’s is this coming Friday (13th). Tomorrow is a niece’s and next Saturday a nephew’s.

      Off topic, but I don’t know where it fits. Tomorrow the SCOTUS holds hearings on TX redistricting. Whether the state legislature-drawn lines or those of a 3-judge panel acting under the Civil RIghts Act, will affect U.S. House, State Senate and State House seats. The Court will have to rule relatively soon, TX’s primaries are set for 4/3/12 if I recall correctly.

  4. Molly Pitcher says:

    May all your wishes come true lysie!!

  5. lysie says:

    Make a note.

    January 7, 2012 3:59 P.M. E.S.T. , lysie saw bugs flying around outside in Central New York.

    • edinva says:

      lysie, this has been one of the weirdest winters ever. I read that on New Year’s Day, there were temps in the 60s as far N as the Canadian border (in the central part of the US).

      Between the GOP debate and NFL wildcard playoffs, it’s going to be an unusually decent Saturday night on TV. At least for political junkies and fans of teams that made it to the playoffs. I’ve not been in that latter category for some years now 😉

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      We were talking about such things at the meeting today….the grass is so green, the temps so mild ,we’ll need to get the mowers out soon!

  6. edinva says:

    It’s January 7 and 64 degrees, going up to 65! Unbelievable. If this is Global Warming, bring it on!

    (next week we’ll have 2′ of that white stuff)

    Have a super day, everyone.

    • queenie says:

      I, too, saw flying bugs…….. yestserday, lysie! Amazing. Weather is supposed to be decent through Wed.

      Congrats, Rav. It’s BEAUTIFUL!

      lysie: HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Tomorrow. 🙂

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      The ski places are hurting, altho I know 2 people who work at the one in the valley, and they were at work today, but apparently the newer hires aren’t getting as much time.

      Where classes are offered, and usually 70-80 show up…that’s waaay down to about 20, if that. But beginning classes are still doable even with little snow because balance is the chief focus. Snow boarding too…

    • lysie says:

      Thank you , queenie.

      Dad took us out to eat. We usually celebrate together because his is on the 10th. Then we went back home to watch SU basketball and some of the Magnificent 7. It was a nice evening. Now, the Saints against the Tigers (football). I don’t have a favorite.

  7. Two Thirds says:

    Hi Molly, It’s been relatively gorgeous for 2 weeks, but snow due tonight.

  8. tillacum says:

    I just finished reading the comment made by Alan Colmes. What a crude, cruel individual he is. I’m surprised Fox would keep such a brutal person on their payroll.

    And I read the article about nobama’s people fudging the NEW EMPLOMENT rolls. This administration fudges the truth at every turn.

  9. tillacum says:

    I love wafles…Thank you lysie.

    Rave, one NEVER has too much stuff. When you rid yourself of something, you’ll need it, in 2 weeks, sure as shootin’.

  10. Molly Pitcher says:

    Brunch, then annual meeting. Once again, will be re-elected secretary of our investment group….one of the other members is always treasurer. Leaving the 2 remaining slots to rotate among the others: 4 people, one of whom frequently demurs from taking a tour…

    But we have fun. It’s a jolly group.

  11. Molly Pitcher says:


  12. Molly Pitcher says:

    Congrats Raven….are you and the house ready to move right away??

  13. Molly Pitcher says:

    Good morning!

  14. Two Thirds says:

    Good morning, lysie….
