  1. Molly Pitcher says:

    This is our third year making this trip to Gulf Coast….and we have wanted to stop at the Lincoln birthplace national park s. of Louisville the last two years but it just didn’t work out..weather, other stops, etc

    But I put it on the itinerary again this year with the hope we would make it….. seemed like a “go”, and we confirmed our plans this a.m.

    THEN I realized what day it actually was! Oh my gosh! Neither I nor my husband had thought of the day’s significance… Funny… Anyway, there was a simple ceremony that had ended by the time we got there….President and mrs. “Lincoln” were still there tho in their costumes, and the little museum was a little busier than usual, I think.

    There’s a powerful monument which encloses a reconstructed log cabin

    Former Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore is suspending his presidential campaign.

  3. Prairie says:

    Have they released a photo of the perp who shot the two police officers in Maryland? Is he black, white….purple?

  4. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • lysie says:

      Hi Molly.

      I agree , Molly. It’s getting hard to muster up any optimism.

      Bitter cold out there today. I’m trying to regroup before I go out, although, procrastination is not my forte…sooooo…I’m outta here. 🙂 Be back soon.

    • lysie says:

      Thank goodness it’s not windy. Brrr! The sun is trying to come out. I hope it does and stays for hours.

    • tillacum says:

      One of our fave breakfasts. Think I’ll do that, AFTER, hubby put his feet on the floor.
      lysie, sorry to hear you have so much white stuff on the ground. Molly stay safe.
      Hi ed.
      We’re going to clean the garage. We let a fellow use it to do some paintings, and ……
      Of course, I have helped with the disaster back there, so when our man gets here around 1000, a flurry of activity will take place. When that is done, I’m going after the shelves and straighten them into long straight lines. Right now they are slap happy from one section to another and that drives me nuts.
      Tomorrow we’ll be putting potatoes in the ground, and I’m going to plant some garlic between them, also plant some Swiss chard, English peas, snow peas, radishes and I don’t know what else. I’ll be starting my melons from seed, plus beans and tomatoes.

      OH, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY Bitwacker. Which sarong will you be wearing?

    • lysie says:

      Good morning, till. I have an idea. When you finish cleaning your garage come over here. Ours needs it too. 😉

      Reading your post is making me antsy about planting our garden. Can’t wait.!!

  5. Jemian says:

    Happy Birthday, Bitwhacker, wherever you are.

    • Jemian says:

      Y’all might find this amusing. One of the fifth grade parents is going on furlough next year when their daughter will be in sixth grade. They’ll return in January 2017 for the second semester. They understandably want to keep their child on pace with the class. So, the mom writes:
      What exactly do we need to cover the 1st semester so that she will be on track for 2nd semester?

      It is Friday night. I have a headache which may be, of course, malaria. Hubby is in Singapore and my neighbors are threatening to throw a party again. She wants an answer NOW????? What EXACTLY am I teaching? Truthfully, I can’t tell what EXACTLY I’ll teach on Monday! But I sent her an answer in the spirit of her request and we’re still friends.

    • lysie says:

      Happy Birthday, Bit.

      So sorry, Jem. Get well soon. That’s more important than the parent’s request. That will have to wait until you feel better. I would hope they would understand. I would. (((hugs)))

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Yay! Breakfast!
      Jemian Stay well and sane prayers for you…

      I was just making a few attempts to start dressing without waking my husband. So far so good….but got to thinking too. This new year dawned with some high hopes. After all 2016 is what we’ve looked forward to for awhile, isn’t it?? But gang, I gotta tell you…politically …economically…it has been a tad underwhelming so far.

      What happened yesterday with the markets?..Yellin before Congress.. And the markets shuddered in response? Wow

    • tillacum says:

      Jem, I wish you could rid yourself of those headaches and malaria.
      Molly, I do think the democrat party is protecting schrillery. Last evening Bernie didn’t bring up her e-mails. I think he was told not to. BUT they sure did spent a lot of time on the blacks and how poorly they’ve been treated. That sort of talk really irritates me.

    • Jemian says:

      Thanks, Till. Hubby is in Singapore getting his pipes checked. I’m thinking I should’ve gone with him and gotten my head checkd.

  6. edinva says:

    Stay safe, Molly, stay safe!

    • lysie says:

      Yes, Molly..stay safe.

      Hi ed. I think we have about 20 plus inches of snow since yesterday. A few more days of frigid weather, then, next week looks better.

    • edinva says:

      lysie, 20′ – can’t even imagine! We have no snow in the forecast but won’t be surprised if we don’t get more before Mr. Winter makes his exit. Still a few random piles left from the plowing, but otherwise, no sign of the big Blizzard of ’16. It’s cold thru this weekend (by VA standards) but we’ll be into 50s by end of the week, probably low 60 or so. Ah, there’s a good reason old folks head south in winter … esp when their bones are more inclined to break from falls.

      Before you know it, we’ll be complaining about the heat!

      Did anyone see the Dem debate last night? haha, only reason I even knew there was one was the headlines of threads at FR. And how much pleasure am I getting from the Bernie crowd being all upset with the redistribution of delegate wealth! If that’s not a lesson to them, nothing ever will be. They want ‘free’ college, don’t want to spend 10 years paying off those big college loans, without a single thought to the idea they’d be paying off their and everyone else’s college loans for the rest of their lives with 90% tax bites. ‘Tis a shame that youth is wasted on the young. How you explain Bernie and his contemporary commies is yet another story.

    • lysie says:

      ed, my original post did say 20′ but I corrected it to inches. Sorry.

      I had the debate on for a few moments, but I couldn’t stand their voices.

      / finger nails meet chalk board.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Thank you ladies. I saw the conditions in your area, yes, on TWC lysie…..very tough driving. You take care too.

  7. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

  8. Prairie says:

    Here’s another little tidbit from our food packaging event that I will only post here. We have a clique-ish group of liberals in our park who I’m sure would give a lot of lip service about helping the poor and needy, should the topic be raised in a conversation where others that are outside of their clique were present. But in actuality, only 1 person out of 8 – 10 of them actually stepped up to participate whatsoever. I know this isn’t surprising to us here, which is why I shared it. But the hypocrisy, knowing this crowd as I do is glaring.

    • The Raven says:

      It is possible that libs want to use your money for charity. If they used their own money, that would be horrible. But if the government taxes you, and the government transfers the money to their voting blocks, then the guilt is removed from the lib. Even though you’ve been taxed and have less money to give, you give anyway, That’s a head scratcher for them. This same thought pattern prevails in physical help. Except abortion clinics

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Oh Raven, that is basically.what I’ve heard some libs say…they just depend on the government to do the charity work. That’s fine with them…the gov. spends the money more wisely, blah, blah, blah…

    • Prairie says:

      Oh, I’m certain they didn’t contribute any money either, except possibly the one person. No money, no effort, no time.

  9. The Raven says:

    Chris Christie dropped out

  10. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

  11. Prairie says:

    The food packaging event went off without a hitch. 5700 meal-bags were filled, 156 cases filled and distributed to 8 area food pantries. 163 volunteers helped the day of the event and others before then by donating to fundraising, promoting etc. I posted some pix on FB if you’d like to take a look there.
    It was a big event, but it was Kingdom work and we lift if all to God’s glory. He provided in every way, from the abundant fundraising (we sent a substantial cash donation with the satellite team after the event….there was no way we could package the amount of food that cash would’ve bought!)….from that to providing enough volunteers to giving us the energy and stamina to see it through.
    I’ve heard nothing but positive feedback. All to His glory!

  12. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

  13. edinva says:

    Dixville Notch, here I come!!! I’m losing track of the candidates who’ve dropped out. With my tour d’enfant last week, I didn’t know till yesterday (or maybe day before) that Rand Paul suspended his campaign. Oh, and I missed yet one more debate, following only on talk threads.

    So far we haven’t been called to election official duty for the VA primary on 3/1. Not going to lose sleep if they don’t call. Will lose sleep if they do … that ‘job’ requires us to be at the polling place NLT 4:45am (not my shining hour) and we don’t leave till all the counting is done, ballots sealed in boxes, etc. so probably 9-9:30pm. Long day!! But we got a raise last year … from $100/per day to $175. For 17 hours!! And 17 mostly boring ours at that, esp. primaries.

    OK, so I was terribly impressed with Lady Gaga last night. I was in the laundry room and heard the military chorus, then the National Anthem, and it about blew my sox off … never heard anyone hold that difficult note so long. Amazing. I always thought she was just some kinda sleazy oinker, like Miley Cyrus. And, I guess that’s been her rep, but maybe she’s maturing and realizes she doesn’t need all that trash in her act, that she has enough talent just on her own? We can hope. The problem with these celebrity singers today is that they all try to out-raunch each other, and one can write it off as show biz, but young girls watch that and their style becomes a standard, so you have 12 y/o’s looking like street walkers. (have I mentioned how happy I am that my ‘kids’ are all growned up?)

    Looking forward to hearing NH results tmo .. and who stays/leaves the fray.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Lady Gaga looked different than she usually does, too…at least some of the photos I’ve seen of her. But then I get her and Adele confused. What do I know??!!

    • edinva says:

      Molly, we’re in the same boat .. I don’t know one from the next. I’ve heard OF Adele and I’ve heard she has a great voice, but I’ve never heard she’s in the Lady Gag/Madonna category. I do know she has a deep cleft in her chin (kinda partial to those). Thus ends my entire base of pop culture knowledge.

      What do we think of Dixville Notch? 4-0 for Bernie!

      How to explain Kasich’s popularity there? I once thought he’d be great for POTUS, experience as Chmn of Budget Committee during the Newt days, governor of a big swing state .. but he’s been an embarrassment in the debates. Just horrid. Oh, well. We’ll see late tonight what the overall NH vote will be.

    • The Raven says:

      Lady Gaga sang at the Oscars last year…..that blew my socks off. Now she gave Whitney a run for her money.

    • edinva says:

      Rav, I think LadyG has gained a whole new slew of fans or at least those who no longer think she’s nothing but pure trash. I don’t know if it was me but it seemed that at the point where she sang “home of the brave” she extended her arms to the troops who were there. If she never does anything ‘good’ in her life again, she won a lot of points in that one performance at SB 50. Or as we Latin lovers would say, SB L. (funny how they dropped the Roman numerals when it came to 50)

    • lysie says:

      Rav, Molly and ed, I’m pleased that she did The National Anthem with respect. Yes. She has a pleasant singing voice.

  14. Molly Pitcher says:

    Did everyone hear about Madeleine Albright’s comments in support of Hillary!? And how about NARAL’s objection to the Dorito’s SB commercial showing a sonogram, and baby??!!.

  15. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone. Thanks for the start, Molly.

  16. Jemian says:

    Hello! Thank you for starting this week for us, Molly.

    I watched portions of the Super Bowl. I was surprised that Denver dominated as handily as they did. Congratulations, Peyton Manning!

    The biggest loser. PETA. I understand their commercial was banned by CBS as “too sexy.” Unfortunately, there was no warning on the collection I viewed on youtube and I couldn’t get to the clicker fast enough. It was pure porn. It started off with intimate details and … I assume continued.

    Actually, I have seen no good commercials this year. Usually there are some that are interesting. These were boring, even the Clydesdales.

    • The Raven says:

      It wasn’t so much Peyton as the Denver Defense – with Wolfe, Miller, and Ware up front and the no-fly zone in the back. Yo !! A trivia tidbit is that the guy who won the MVP (Von Miller) last night was drafted number 2 by Denver in 2011. Right behind Cam Newton, drafted #1 the same year.

      Our night at the “Y” turned out to be OK…but the kids were playing the games (especially air hockey) and were so noisy – we couldn’t hear the game–only watch. We ended up at home for the second half.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Yes, I guess Mannings career is over now, and congrats..not his best game, but he overcame a lot to get to it. That’s about the extent of my knowledge.
      Jemian, you would have liked the Doritos dog commercial. That is the only one I saw, and it was fun. Then there was Turbo Tax and Anthony Hopkins…not so great….jarring as a matter of fact, but not X rated either.

      Good morning everyone! Thanks lysie.

    • lysie says:

      Hi Jem , Rav and Molly. You are welcome, Molly.

      For some reason I wasn’t impressed with anything at the Super Bowl…..music, commercial or even the game itself.

      Jem, that PETA commercial must have been disgusting if CBS banned it. Think Beyonce…whoa….definitely not my kind of entertainment.
