    TGIF everybody. Very busy week here, I’ve been off-news all week except for Bret Baier. May be a blessing….Molly Daniel Henninger’s piece…..all I can say is that God is watching. All this thuggery from the left will prompt His judgment at some point.

    Has anybody watched the FX channel show called “The Americans”? I saw a glowing recommendation on Powerline so I paid the $2 and downloaded the pilot from last season. (The new season starts next month)

    I can see why the Powerline blogger liked it so much. Very interesting show concept of a male and female KGB agents during the Reagan administration, living in Wash DC, posing as average Americans but actually are deep-cover Soviet spies with marriage, children, home etc. The acting is very good. Very good. Lots of action and if you liked “24” this may even be more intriguing if that first show is any measure.

    Biggest disappointment: Highly graphic sexual scenes. Not X-rated pornography of course, but there is NO doubt with the acting and screen shots about what is being portrayed. There are 3 big sex scenes, in the pilot. I realize that sex sells, but a little more (a lot more) innuendo would’ve been much better to get the point across. (Mr. Prairie and I are too young for some of that stuff….we can’t believe what is allowed on cable TV at prime time these days….!)

    However those scenes did emphasize the dogged commitment that at least the female star had to their mission over their marriage and the lengths she was willing to go to. It also brought home the husband character’s dilemma about starting to long for a normal family life vs. being a fully committed Russian spy. Like I say, interesting stuff. Richard Thomas of John-Boy Walton fame is also a featured character. We bought episode Two and hope that it won’t be as graphic. If it is, we’ll just start watching Lysie’s “Heartland”.

      That review on Powerline caught my eye too. Appreciate all your comments prairie…… Just don’t think it sounds like something to spend my time on now.

      You would like Heartland…..some of the characters….just want to knock their heads together. Stubborn and don’t communicate well, but you like ’em anyway! Humor is excellent….great photography….stories….very good.

    Yes Molly, it is Friday……and

    Time to Pardeeeee

    …..and in celebration of the incompetents who lead the country …

  3. Molly Pitcher says:

    no, no, no….it just can’t be Friday already!

    It’s been a productive week….the chimney sweeper came yesterday, and had minimal work to do, thank goodness. Today we are getting rid of some firewood we won’t be needing. A friend, and Boy Scout father, is going camping. So they are stopping by here to pick up the wood for their very – well it could probably be worse – cold weekend.

    Good morning everyone.

  6. The Raven says:

    Jonas thinks the ‘Pubs have a tsunami on the way. I hope so, but for some reason I don’t sense it like I did in 2010. The Dems are so good at changing the subject.

    • The Raven says:

      Excuse me…Jonah !! not Jonas…..Wrong one (I have a work colleague named Jonas)

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      understand what you mean about sensing it….but at that time I was an active Tea Partier…and now …no….maybe 2010 isn’t the right year to think about…maybe 1994?

    • tillacum says:

      You’re right about changing subjects and then they blame everything on the republicans. I wish the republicans would grow a pair and start blaming the democrats every time they speak. Thank goodness for Fox, they are keeping score and keeping Benghazi on the front burner.
      I would love to see a republican add showing shrillary sleeping, the phone ringing and the 2 seals on the roof of the consulate, calling for help. The next screen, showing her “Well who cares?” Boy, don’t you know msnbc, chrissy, and maddow would have a hissy fit.

  7. Molly Pitcher says:

    Forgot to note here yesterday: Cong Jim Moran announced he won’t be seeking re-election. He is the Dem bully from n. Virginia

    Good morning everyone.

    Good morning everyone.

    • Molly Pitcher says:


      lysie I am sooooo enjoying Heartland…just loving it. Thank you so much for letting me know about it!

      As it happens, it is shot in a location in S. Alberta which we visited a few summers ago…those mountains you often see in the background? Those are the Selkirks…unmistakably rugged. We were in those. It was the end of June, and it was snowing!

      Raven And these mountains are just a short distance, by western standards, n.w. of Glacier N.P…..really pretty much part of that same range.

    • lysie says:

      Oh! That is great to hear, Molly. I like the character , Jack. His no nonsense way of talk makes me smile.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Me, too…he has a great sense of humor,,,makes me smile…

    • tillacum says:

      AW shucks, all I can have is the egg. It looks so good.

  12. lysie says:

    Re: Benghazi Transcripts…. And mainstream media…still stuck on stupid Christie.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      well we are back from Lone Survivor…so glad we saw it…good sized audience…well done. Kudos to all who put it together, but most of all to those men who went thru that hell of a mission.
      I know a section of a highway out in CO which is named after one of the lost SEALS…worth being reminded of his life and death whenever I drive that route.

    • The Raven says:

      Morning quote:

      “It was the stupidest, most southern-fried, lamebrained decision I ever made in my life. I must have been out of my mind. I had actually cast a vote which I knew could sign our death warrant. I’d turned into a f***ing liberal, a half-assed, no-logic nitwit, all heart, no brain, and the judgment of a jackrabbit.”
      -Marcus Luttrell in retrospect on his decision to turn lose some Afghan goat herders who had stumbled onto ithe Seal’s concealed position
      — from “Lone Survivor”

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Yes, that whole scene is covered well in the movie. It was the RoE basically. Inexpicably, what they could have done, but didn’t was bound and gagged the goatherds. But even then that would only have bought them a little time.

    • tillacum says:

      The Christie incident was another cover story for the mainstream media, to protect nobama and Hillary from their contempt for our representatives and military overseas. They knew what was happening, when it was, yet did nothing. They committed Treason.
      It shows their contempt for Americans, America and it’s laws. (the president, shrillary and the meda)

  13. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

  14. The Raven says:

    Morning quote (from WSJ Notable & Quotable):

    To be a conservative is first to understand that there is no solution to the dilemmas of the human condition. Second, it is to understand that to escape these dilemmas, human beings will inevitably embark on desperate quests for redemptions in this life. These redemptions, in turn, will require holy wars to purge the world of demons—of those who do not share their faith, and who stand in their way. In this regard, totalitarian Islam is really no different in its heart from totalitarian socialism or progressivism, even though the latter are secular and the former is pursued in the name of a vengeful and malignant God. Both seek to cleanse mankind of its irreparable imperfections.

    To remain free beings, we are continually forced to defend ourselves and our breathing space, against the efforts of the redeemers to perfect us—against the armies of the saints who are determined to make the world a better place than it can ever be. That is how I see the political wars we face, and why they will never end.

    -David Horowitz:in the “The Black Book of the American Left”

  15. The Raven says:

    I’m not a fan of Christy, but Obama came after him with Chicago politics and that;s scary. Justice investigating a Sandy TV commercial? Come on now. Two days after they investigate trafficgate?

  16. tillacum says:

    We went to watch Lone Survivor last evening. It was pretty loud, actually. I turned my hearing aids down to the lowest and heard very well. The normal setting was too loud. Because of time constraints and the loss of comrades, not much of the book was told. It was an excellent piece, showing the bond the men have for one another, even after some passed on. It was very well told about a military person’s experience when they are under fire and losing comrades. Quite intense.
    What did Sarah and bf think of the movie?
    In Conroe, TX, where Marcus is from, the theatre had so many people line up to see the movie, the theatre manager cancelled 4 (?) other movies to show Lone Survivor in all the theatres.

    I just finished watching this one hour The Everly Brothers Live at the Royal Albert Hall in London, 1983 ..

    It’s far better than the news!

    • lysie says:

      Oh! Forgot to mention. The reason I watched that is because Sarah and Greg went to the movie Lone Survivor tonight . I wanted to go , but I knew I wouldn’t be able to hear.

      I had headphones on for the Everly Brothers.

    Good morning everyone.
