Yeah, it straddles the line.

I think the comedy in that show is an acquired taste. I think a better title for Orville would be "Frat Boys In Space". Then at least viewers would be warned.

Why Angela, your final point seems like the most logical conclusion.

I'm sad the Buckeyes defeated the Badgers.

Yes. Eric was a sad little Badger after that game.

Congratulations to all the loyal Buckeyes out there in seti-land.

I love halva!!! We can sometimes find it at our local farmers market.

Blin. It take hours to make real halvas.
I don't think your local farmers have real halvas for sale.
But then I can be wrong.
Stay Cheeki Breeki:)

Perhaps we are not talking about the same thing? The halva I buy at the farmer's market is a sesame-based candy. We have more than raw produce for sale at our farmer's market. The market includes vendors of baked goods, jams, ethnic cuisines and even arts and crafts.

I would suggest to you that is 100% hyperbole.

My point was that broad, sweeping statements such as: "But men kicking a football about seems to attract the worst types." are inaccurate and offensive.

With this statement, for example: "I was brought up to treat women as equals, not as a chattel like the Victorians did, or India still does. " you have managed to offend an entire subcontinent of people - population roughly 1,300,000,000.

And with this statement: "Of course gentlemanly behaviour and simple good manners is something you and your ilk wouldn't have the first idea about. But that is typical America.", you have managed to insult roughly another 300,000,000.



Yes I was happier in the last couple of decades of the 20C and I wish I was back there now. Good breeding, manners, common courtesy, respect for women, gentlemanly behaviour, was all taken for granted.

Exactly what part of insulting approximately one fifth of the world's population in the course of typing two public posts constitutes "good breeding, common courtesy, respect for women and gentlemanly behavior"?



And yet is was all so different even just 5 or 6 years ago.
(Channeling my inner Barbara Steisand here: [best shower voice engaged]Can it be that it was all so simple then, or has time re-written every line...)[/best shower voice disengaged])

Has the entire world really changed so dramatically over the last 5 to 6 years, or is it more likely that 1 person has changed quite dramatically over the last 5 to 6 years?

Hmmmmm..... from purely a probability standpoint, which scenario is more likely?

Need some custard recipes? Eric loves vanilla custard for breakfast, and since it is basically milk and eggs with a little sugar, I figure it is better for him than donuts for breakfast.

One of my nieces has a dairy allergy. I baked her some sugar cookies using something called "vegan buttery sticks". The cookies rolled, cut and baked fine, but I did not care for the taste. My recommendation is to always use butter in sugar cookies, unless there are good medical reasons not to do so.

Sports of all kinds seem to attract the obsessives and the extremists in society. But men kicking a football about seems to attract the worst types.


Well, my family full of "worst types" will be over for dinner tonight and avidly watching the Badgers game with Eric after dinner this evening. A finer group of "worst types" I cannot imagine - an astrophysicist, two speech pathologists, a middle school teacher, a business executive and three adorable children (future Badgers or Bears we hope!!!) ages 7, 5 and almost 2.

Yep. Definitely the "worst types".



Go Badgers!!!

.... that it is your choice to read or to ignore.

Is it possible that one so very skilled at finding buttons to push is having difficulty finding an ignore button?

Take some yapping responsibility for your own irritation.

When I go by a cooking gadgets store, or I receive a cooking gadgets catalog in the mail, I like to "window-shop". There are many things in those stores it would be fun to have. In actuality, I wouldn't buy most of them because I don't have the storage space, or I would use them so infrequently that they would not be worth the money. But still, it is fun to "window shop", and I am almost powerless to stop doing it.

Eric never berates me for window-shopping.

Eric never insults me for window-shopping.

Eric never makes snarky comments about my window-shopping.

Eric never derides me for window-shopping.

Eric never belittles me for window-shopping.

Eric never talks over me, as if I were not there, when I am window-shopping.

I am so grateful that Eric is so kind. People like Eric make the world a better place.

Peanut appears to have weaned her babies and the group has split up. This is normal and natural for this time of year.

I miss my little troop of babies. This was a very fun litter and while I may still see an occasional baby in the backyard from time to time, I know that my backyard will be the subject of several territorial disputes before some mama raccoon, perhaps Peanut again, somehow marks it as (mostly) her own next year.
