This is the chance for supporters to let him know he is not alone, and seems to be working nicely.

So, new season of The Americans began last night. Did it seem strange to you.?


I appreciate that the show is so intelligent. But had a hard time knowing how much "time" had passed since the last Season.
Now, suddenly, we have Paige learning tradecraft, and a bunch of windows are being stared by several people...but why? and who?

Apparently we have a spy vs spy vs spy thing happening here.

Meanwhile, what are the odds Stan't live in girlfriend is spy too?

Gotta go watch it again...my eyeballs are getting rusty, perhaps.

Mmmmm...has SUCH a nice ring to it, doesn't it?

Can someone pls. tell me when it became illegal to let kids play outside with no parent watching?

Utah becomes first state to pass 'free-range parenting' law codifying that kids can participate in unsupervised activities without their parents facing neglect charges.

The new law prevents parents from being considered negligent by state authorities for letting their child walk outside alone, play without supervision or wait alone in a car.

"If your 12-year-old is capable of walking home from the bus stop by themselves, that's something that you might make a decision about where another 12-year-old may be too impulsive,"

When did it become ILLEGAL to let a kid walk outside alone, play without supervision or wait alone in a car.??????????

Anyone know about a 3rd type of flu going round?


I ask because the doc confirmed that there are 2 types of flu going around, when I saw her in late Feb.,and darned if we did not get those a week apart...horrible coughing, congestion, but no tummy distress. ) she also said she never seen 2 strains hit, one right after the other, before)
Then we got better after 3 days.

Monday I left the house, went to clinic for a blood draw, and the next am woke up with fever, 6 lovely hours of constant dry heaves, and total limpness. Lots of sleepiness, even after the tummy bit had stopped.

Not asking for advice, just for info. about this set of symptoms .....anyone?

Is it unusual to have multiple nor'easters in one season?

Much less in one month:

"The region's fourth nor'easter this month arrives today".

Facebook's share price down $30 billion in first two hours trading today.


I am wondering how many people have left Facebook over this data spying.


Christopher Wylie reports Facebook has banned him. awwwww...

You can't make this up, not in a million years. This seems to be his real name.

And a real scam.

Johnson Joy,
the chief information officer at the Department of Housing and Urban Development (Hud), is part of a Christian not-for-profit in Texas with Naved Jafry, who quit as a Hud adviser after inquiries about his professional history.

Until this week the group, GJH Global Ministries, invited donations on its website. But it was not clear what work the group did and its mission statements and other information appeared to be copied from those of major churches. GJH was formed in 2014 but Stephen Austin, one of its directors, said in a brief interview: “We literally did nothing.”

Following inquiries by the Guardian, GJH’s website was locked from public view. Other directors declined to be interviewed. The group last filed a tax return with the Internal Revenue Service for 2014. Churches and affiliated groups are not required to file annual returns.

Before being locked to visitors, one page of GJH’s site showed a photograph of Joy addressing a crowd of people holding Trump campaign placards and wearing red “Make America great again” hats. Another showed Joy posing with Greg Abbott, the Republican governor of Texas. Not-for-profit organisations are barred under federal law from endorsing political candidates.
