A fun video from the blizzards of 76-77


These are from Ohio, but we experienced them in northern Indiana too. They were wicked..

I worked at a Travel Agency and we went on half-days for quite a while due to rationing of natural gas.. We had snow piles 6feet tall on both sides of our driveway..

Tamron Hall in talks for a spot on The Today Show


Over the past year, Tamron Hall has become a welcome and familiar face on the Today show. Now the 43-year-old is reportedly in “serious talks” with NBC for a more permanent position.

According to TV Guide, Hall, who regularly fills in on the morning show, is having discussions with NBC about becoming a co-host on the third hour of Today. Hall would join Natalie Morales, Al Roker, and Willie Geist during Today’s Take, which follows more of a talk show format than the newsier first two hours.


The 43-year-old currently spends most of her time on the show at the news desk or in the “Orange Room,” home of a new segment devoted to trends in social media, as well as covering special events like the Golden Globes. In addition to her work on Today, Hall hosts NewsNation weekdays on MSNBC and Deadline: Crime with Tamron Hall on Investigation Discovery.

In an effort to find a winning formula that rivals that of Good Morning America on ABC, Today added Geist to its third hour in October 2012 and brought co-host Carson Daly on board to helm the Orange Room in September 2013. In 2013, preliminary Nielsen responses show a 12 percent rise in ratings, though GMA still holds the number one spot.

If Hall becomes a more permanent member of the Today show team, she will likely be on the short list to fill an empty seat on the main anchor desk should someone leave the show.


And, the nominees are..... (Oscars 2014)


Wow.. I totally missed the Scarborough divorce (#2)

from Susan..


Joe Scarborough quietly divorced his second wife back in January, but there’s no reason the gossip media can’t pore over his settlement now to learn a few things about the MSNBC host.TMZ did a follow-up on Scarborough’s divorce after breaking the story earlier in the week, and found that the settlement doesn’t much benefit the pundit’s ex-wife, Susan Waren.

For instance, Scarborough makes about $99,038 per week from Morning Joe. According to the divorce documents, he won’t be paying child support, and his alimony is very low.

He’ll be giving Susan about $30,000 each month for the next five years, and then $25,000 each month for the two after that. Scarborough will also give her a lump sum of $150,000 and will continue paying the mortgage on their Connecticut home, as well as schooling for the couple’s two children.

They will share joint custody of their kids, 10-years-old and 5-years-old, and are currently still living together with them. But there are rules for that, too. When they’re both in the Connecticut home, they cannot enter each others’ bedroom unless there’s an emergency with one of their children. After 7 PM, they’re each banned from the others side of the house, as well.

A ten-month old's Santa Letter ( so true)


A Ten-Month-Old’s Letter To Santa

By theuglyvolvo, December 10, 2013

Dear Santa,

I am a ten-month-old baby and I write because my mother has been sending out my “Christmas List” to people, and her list does not in any way represent the things I really want. I could give two s#*ts about receiving stacking cups.

And I know you’re ready to make the joke about ten month-old babies and how all we want is the wrapping paper and the boxes. Touché, Santa. Touché. We do, of course, want those things. But I have a number of additional things I want very badly.

My list is enclosed below. Have a lovely holiday.

A Comprehensive List of The Things I Want For Christmas:

Now that Bridget is unemployable, how does she live?

I'm pretty sure that she has a mortgage payment, needs to buy food, has a car to keep running..maybe has a kid or four..

How does she earn money now? Who would hire her?

Her next steps will be telling. I don't think that Christie is a rich enough man to pay for her silence, long-term.

She had a very high profile job with many benefits, and now she's out with nothing. (or so we are led to believe).

She is the one person who knows where all the bodies are buried.

Governor Christie, your shoes are ready.
