Maybe if Nancy got him a giant pacifier?


He'd settle down and go to sleep or something?
I'll buy.

Or maybe we should start sending him these?

Putin's rise to power.

The money laundering has a very familiar ring to it.
I found this to be very informative.

I remember when there was one telephone in the house.

I wasn't the old candlestick phone, but a modern one with the speaker and receiver in the one hand-piece. It was black and had a dial, of course.

It sat on a special little seat and table combo in the hall.

Our phone number was 71353.
It was a party line that we shared with another subscriber.
Our signal was one long and two short rings.
I think the other party was two longs.
Still, it was fun and a bit daring to pick up on the two longs and eavesdrop.

When my grandmother needed a phone number she'd say to me "Honey, call Central and ask for Vincent's market's phone number."
I didn't know what 'Central' was, but I knew you just dialed 'O' and asked the lady to look up a number.

That's my reminiscence for Christmas eve which has nothing whatsoever to do with Christmas eve.
Merry Christmas.

Anyone using VOIP for phone?

How's that work?
Thanks.

The U.S. population is approx. 1/4 Catholic. SCOTUS is 2/3.

Why is that?

H.L. Mencken was a prophet.

On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.

She asked a witness questions that she didn't already know the answers to.
With no independent investigation and facts to go on she was a fish out of water.
I don't know what the repugs were hoping for, but she wasn't it.
