I saw Paul McCartney last year.

He still puts on a great show. He's 73 years old! It's amazing he can still belt out those songs and rock and roll. The venue was sold out and there were people there of all ages, not just geezers. LOL

I can add one to your list though: Kenny Rogers. I saw him last fall and he can barely sing anymore. But the songs are still wonderful and he was very entertaining.

I agree with you. I think there is too much being said about the flag in the media.

It is like a "quick fix". Just take down the flag and everything will be OK. As much as I despise those "yahoos" with their huge confederate flags (we have them here in PA too), I fear that they are just dumb enough and gullible enough to think it is worth defending. I know plenty of those people because they live all around me. And they are armed.

I am not saying to leave it up--- let's just stop all the clamoring about it as if this is the solution to racism.

Who is watching PBS' new Sunday night lineup?

"Poldark" --- gorgeous!

"The Crimson Field" --- WOW! Loved it!

What a feast they both are.

Today's Google Doodle: Happy Dad's Day! (cute!)


Thank you to dads everywhere, for carrying us until we've learned to stand on our own, and sometimes even after.

I'm not, unless you count the marauding hordes who ravaged central Europe ages ago.

All four of my grandparents were from what is now the Slovak Republic. Two were from the same village.

"Aquarius" and "The Whispers"

Aquarius is OK, nothing great, but I like David Duchovny. I like The Whispers so far. I forgot about Wayward Pines, but I was watching it earlier.

Looking forward to Zoo and the return of Under the Dome.

I have been watching a lot of Netflix. I just finished Homeland (seasons 1-3) and I'm currently in the middle of The Bletchley Circle, which is wonderful.

Today's Google Doodle: Lady Liberty's arrival

They are starting to line up to challenge Kane.

HARRISBURG With a Democratic incumbent beset by mounting legal problems, a Republican senator will announce his candidacy for Pennsylvania attorney general, and a GOP House member is considering a bid for the office in 2016.

Even if Attorney General Kathleen Kane clears her court-related hurdles, her odds of winning re-election are slim, political analysts said Monday.

Sen. John Rafferty, a fourth-term Republican from Chester County, will formalize his candidacy Wednesday with the backing of police and firefighter unions. Rafferty is a former deputy attorney general.

Republican Rep. Todd Stephens, a former assistant district attorney in Montgomery County, also might run.

KMOD seems to be MIA.

I haven't seen her in awhile, so I searched. She hasn't posted since June 7.

KMOD, I hope you are just on vacation in an exotic location! Hope you haven't taken your leave of DU.

Is that highly recommended Olive Garden in Times Square still in business?
