Fozzie Bear and Kermit the Frog — The Comedian’s A Bear, from episode 110 of The Muppet Show.
What’s on your mind?
Hi Suzanne, hope you are well.
Going to try to retire. Temp 14, 5 degrees higher than same time last night.
hey ecahn — sleep well and happy dreams
Aloha, Suz, eCAHN, and lln pups….! I sure needed the laugh today…!
aloha tut — glad you enjoyed the video… everything ok?
When it rains, it pours…! 8-(
My net was ‘interrupted’ last nite, today, my old cellphone won’t dial out, my microwave went up in smoke, and, to top all that off, my neighbor, just broke my pipe…! *gah*
dood….. that’s a totally forked up day
Good evening, Suz, CT and lln pups..! “nite eCAHN, sleep well.
hey past — how’s slc tonight?
OMG. Too much terrible.
Any black cats cross your path lately, CT? That’s really a run of bad luck.
hey loohoo — how was your day?
cold but very clear, the stars are very bright tonight.
they are very bright here too… tis clear and 33.6 tonight — no cloud blanket to keep in the warmth tonight
Hi Suz! Lazy bum day. Just cooked. (and ate!)
Oy, that video is kinda like my day.
hey openhope — oh dear – did you have a day like tut???
Orion is spectacular this week.
Uhm, did Tut see his mother naked during a shower? And give hair cuts, to parents and look through bills?
And then have a lovely lunch?
If not, then probably no.
oh dear… that’s an image that is hard to forget.
Hey open. There’s a cluster of stars, looking straight up and extending to about 45 degrees from vertical in the southern sky. they are super bright tonight, but I couldn’t tell you what constellations they are.
That’s just as gruesome, open…! ;-)
forty degrees warmer than last night,
breezy, humid – sky looks blurry – but clear enuf for most stars
in other state news, Kobach goes after lesser prarie chicken, literally. Afraid feds will make it protected and thus make it more difficult to raise electric lines, put up wind farms and drastically effect western ks agbiz. Suuuuuurrre. My theory is it’s prolly abt oil rights and rights of way. He is doing this as a private citizen, as a lawyer, not as sec of state.
meanwhile 19,000 voters were dropped from rolls since he’s not sure they’re citizens. They have to prove it before they can be allowed back on the lists.
He’s a nutter
Just made biscuits and gravy, Suz. With breakfast sausage. And English muffins instead of biscuits. Criminal.
boo. very bad news.
hey ks — that’s outrageous – jeez – when is he up for a vote again?
sounds delish loohoo … my tummy just growled
I’m so sorry. I can’t stop giggling! Mr. Bill shared his b’day Energy Pot drink and then a friend dropped off a cookie.
I’m in the Shits and Giggles stage of a major life change.
Mom’s coming here, supposedly for a few days. And Dad will live on his own for the first time in his life, if he chooses to. His own rhythm, his call. We’re like oil and water during the hard times and like minded during political debates, so visiting will be lovely. Then he goes home.
It’s all good.
It’s a tribal healing, dude!
please tell mr b hippo birdies for me
Suz, I hope you’re feeling better today.
thanks past — each day i’m feeling better. the cough, altho still hanging around, isn’t as bad as it was
this year and the woman running against him is all about shaming him and putting his ridiculous antics to bed. Jean Schroder is her name, a hearing and speech pathologist for years and literally co-creator and co-owner of the Laura Ingalls Wilder tourist spot where the Ingalls family lived here in ks. Crazy but true
Biscuits are the thing today! I made some incredible biscuit toppings ALA “Joy Of Cooking “( max. amount of butter) for peach cobbler, then used the same simple recipe for regular biscuits( minimum amount of butter) to go with beef stew today at the Folks.
glad to hear it, being on the upswing is good. :-)
i’ll keep my fingers and toes crossed — dayam, ya’ll got some crazy politics ks – right up there with arizona
Mr.B had the most awesome B’day. His dear wife predicted that he would lose many hands of Poker to Renew Humility of Card Player. He proceeded to loose 25-30 hands, down $50. Then, like a Capricorn he rose from the chaos to wind up winning $38!
And, his wife sent over appetizers that were hits.
woot! that’s a birthday!!! of course his wife’s appetizers were a hit — his wife is a good cook!
aaayyupp, and we just had a court hearing this week that basically affirmed that the state regents , a board that oversees state education, can fire profs if they want, even if it’s just a tweet on the internet;
so, who’s gonna want to work at university in kansas as long as this policy holds up?
what brought us here was the ku prof in education that, after the sandyhook shooting late 2012, tweeted he hoped the nra and other gunproliferators lived to see their kids shot to death.
out of anger, sure, but then came the counterattacks… and the full-throated defenses of the usual suspects, etc.etc.
so no freedom of speech for kuprofs for now…
ppl are up in arms but so are the gunnuts…
hooboy what a mess!
there’s talk of sheriff joe running for gov down in az. *sigh* my mom and step-dad think he’s great and keep voting for him for sheriff — i shrudder at the thought of him as governor….
and, the Governor’s state of the state speech, like many other’s was this week and it ended up more like a roadside tent affair, than a statesman’s idea of goal;s and accomplishments. weird cuz Brownback’s been a politician for thirty years… such a softspoken guy; not anymore.
I’m thinking religious freedom in the state might be a mischaracterization for a bit, here…
Arpaio’s an old man though, hopefully that ‘ll be a consideration…
so, who would run as his running mate…
We have a nice local who wants to unseat Brownback. We’ll see how it goes
I’m thinking his running mate would be Satan.
But, I might be over-doing it.
its forked up all over — no wonder so many folks are thinking about tossing them all out — even their own as jon’s post today said
her name is Jean *Schodorf* for Sec of State, who vows to fix Kobach’s voter ID debacle
you are gonna have to keep us posted on how her campaign is doing ks… do ya think she’s got a chance or is the incumbency protection racket gonna protect the current guy?
yeah, I liked that, think I tweeted it;
and Suz, you pointed me at Lisa’s unanswered Snowden q’s last night, and when I looked at it later, only then realized it’s a unanswered q post.
Much funnier than what I was doing!
so glad you liked it — i thought it was a hoot and was glad to see it on the front page today
Have you heard of U.N Agenda 21? This is all in it, Brownback is a tool. Actually, we seem to have more Tools the Visionaries.
The human conundrum.
“It’ll take money!
Whole lotta crazy Money!”
I am heartened by what I hear of lefties in kansas: the troops seem mobilized and ready.
The thing is the offyear element of surprise and the Nat’l R’s are playing all kindsa games – today! Rachel Maddow had a breakdown of how they’re moving their own goalposts to make the primary season shorter for the next nat’l election. And I know the state loves to play those games here…
Evenin Ms Suz hope yer feelin ok tonight. Howdy to all from up here in the Alaska tropics. This weather looks to hang in for another week.
hopefully some sorta scandal ala christie will arise and show the voters just what kinda mobster they got running the show
hey homeroid — how ya doing tonight? we could really use some of that rain ya’ll keep getting dood
Yes, that was an excellent post! I’m so grateful to FDL for the information generated! I was just thinking about that this morning over my new favorite drink.yeah, it’s weird. I really enjoy a cup of heated distilled H20 with local honey and a tsp(generous) of apple cider vinegar. Or 2.
yeah as far as I know that’s boogieman politics: a scary story of world domination on local pols, local control. A glennbeck fantasy ginned up to move ratings.
“Responses to world tyranny? Why, We’ll be tyrants ourselves!”
They’re becoming what they’re afraid of. Jedi knights they ain’t.
lotsa good for ya stuff in that apple cider vinegar and the honey too
You guys are in the thick of the “Sea Change” they want to implement across the country. INHO. With research and obsessive reading.
We’re at the end of The Wave.
We don’t have to let this be Our Reality.
do you eat green onions?
they pick up almost any savory dish, for me and remain prevalent even in winter!
tis time for me to take token out to do his thang
thanks for letting me hang out with ya tonight — g’nite all and happy dreams
I know this is some kinda crazy winter. When this pattern shifts i am afraid what will come your way. Folks are gearing up for cod fishing and storms are not lookin friendly.
Niters Token pee well.
Sleep well, Suz..!
I wish it were. I’m fuckin’ great at battling BoogieMen.
This is a written Agenda. This isn’t a Fairie Tale. I’m reading the book by Rosa Koire, “Behind the Green Mask: U.N. Agenda 21″
I’ve gotten so much dissing that I’m actually thinking purchasing the written document that is ” U.N.Agenda 21″. Which is available. I fuckin’ hate throwing money away for a fucking U.N. manuel detailing the proceedures to NWO,he World Doctrine in printed proof. Money that would be better spent on Cannabinoid Oil, my new focus.
It’s not pleasant having more knowledge than one is comfortable with. However, the alternative of ignorance, isn’t a sustainable environment for some of us..
Local politics take time , knowledge and passion, not money, out right. You can’t compete financially.
Cannabiniod oil takes a pound to produce an ounce. Time to focus on another way.( Men with guns be damned! We’ll always be presented with the fear of Men With Guns)
Sweet dreams, homeroid.
Sorry it’s hanging on. My new favorite hot drink is an 8 oz. cup of hot H20, teaspoon local honey (if available, store bought works), a generous teaspoon good organic apple cider vinegar. I think it’s delicious. Excellent for the constitution. The Constitution that involves bowels and shit. Not the Constitution that involves the “Nation We Thought We Lived Within, As Taxpaying Citizens”. Easier to ease the bowels.
Harder to comprehend restoring Civil Liberty. We’re probably going to have to promote civil liberties within a micro-community. Actually, it’s what people who aren’t twisted 1%’s do now.
No need to “Start From Scratch”. Just time to acknowledge the humanity we already have. What’ve we got to lose?!
An early good morning, pups. Today we have Blow, Nocera and Collins. Mr. Blow is being a bit naive. In “The Penance of Glenn Beck” he says the former Fox News host made a meaningful confession, but the damage remains. Mr. Blow made no mention of what Beck has been up to since he left Faux Noise. Maybe (lucky him) he’s been spared Beck’s new TV channel, where one of the “hot topics” this morning is creationism. Mr. Nocera says “For the Mentally Ill It’s Worse.” He’s taking stock 30 years after the powerful story of a severe schizophrenic was told. In “Huckabee Spills the Beans” Ms. Collins says the former Republican presidential candidate is back to talking his way into a controversy. Well, now we know what he’s been up to lately.
Here they are, and
here’s Krugman’s blog.
The coffee and tea are ready, and I’ve got your favorite omelet this morning. For some reason I popped up wide awake at 4:30, so I anticipate that I’ll pull a fade some time this afternoon. Which is okay, since it’s been too damn cold to do anything outside in the garden anyway… Have a great day.
