Nathan’s Hot Dog Honcho to Host Trump Fundraiser in the Hamptons
By Jennifer Jacobs
August 14, 2018, 5:26 PM EDT

Howard Lorber, a Manhattan developer and executive chairman of Nathan’s Famous Inc., the hot dog company, is hosting a fundraiser for President Donald Trump in the Hamptons, according to two people familiar with the event.

Trump will attend both a roundtable with supporters and a luncheon at Lorber’s home in Southampton on Friday, according to the people, who asked not to be identified because the president’s trip hasn’t been publicly announced.

Last year, Trump described Lorber as one of his two best friends. In 1996, Trump and Lorber traveled to Moscow together to explore business opportunities.

Lorber was an economic adviser to Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. And the president last year appointed him chairman of the board of trustees for the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington.

Oh, well, Costco's Kirkland tastes nearly as good.

Operation Migration Resigns From WCEP & Dissolves Organization

Source: Operation Migration

Operation Migration took flight 25 years ago when two artists-turned-aviators developed a method of teaching birds a new migratory route. The innovative approach helped stabilize the dwindling population of the magnificent Whooping crane.

Bill Lishman and Joe Duff developed the aircraft-guided migration method into an effective means of reintroducing endangered Whooping cranes into an area they had not inhabited in over a century.

<SNIP>

The aircraft-guided migration method was ended in the fall of 2015 when the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service published a document titled “FWS Vision for the Next 5-year Strategic Plan” that claimed the method was “too artificial.” They suggested that cranes raised by our costumed handlers resulted in inattentive parents that did not adequately protect their offspring.

We continued work for another 3 years based upon our belief that the goal of a self-sustaining Eastern Migratory Population of Whooping cranes was attainable. However, with new management directives authorized by the Whooping Crane Recovery Team and implemented by Region 3 of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, we no longer believe this goal to be achievable

The article details Operation Migration's successes at re-introducing whooping cranes to areas where they had not been seen for decades. As Florida resident, I am happy to know that they brought whoopers back to my state. I hope the fragile population that return every year can survive.

Is the military parade for Dolt45 still on? When?

I was thinking about it when Dolt refused to say Senator John McCain's name while signing a bill named for the senator.

During the parade the different branches of the military, especially the Navy should carry tributes - banners, photos, whatever is allowed under military code - honoring Senator McCain and his service to the US.

While I do not agree with most of McCain's politics, I never doubted that he is loyal to the oath he swore to uphold the Constitution and to defend this country. Dolt45's pettiness in refusing to even say his name pisses me off and should piss off every person in this country especially our military.

It would be wonderful if Dolt's wet dream of a military parade shoves this petty act back in his face!

Roger Stone Deletes 'Proud' Nazi Space Force Image Posted to Instagram, But the Internet Never Forgets
Longtime Trump loyalist "found a way to simultaneously endorse Space Force and Nazis."

"Over on the Instagram," as the Washington Post's Josh Dawsey astutely and comically said on Twitter late Monday night, "Roger Stone seems to be in the 'space force all the way!' camp."

The tweet from Dawsey was a response to a post by Stone, one of President Donald Trump's longtime allies and staunchest supporters, which showed a picture of seven astronauts—with the photoshopped heads of the president, Rep. Devin Nunes, Rudy Guiliani, Sean Hannity, Sarah Huckabee-Sanders, Mike Pence, and himself—all wearing NASA-like space suits emblazoned with swastika badges.

"Proud to be in this crew," Stone wrote under the image.

Traveling to the UK next year! Need accomodation advice

My husband and I will be there for over two months with a specialized tour in the middle of our time there. We will start in Glasgow, tour Scotland, Yorkshire, and Lincolnshire before the tour. Then we will be in London for a week, and move on to Devon, Cornwall, Wales and other parts of southern England.

Originally I was looking at renting cottages for a week at a time in the middle of the areas we want to visit and had looked at Sykescottages.com and cottages.com. While the cottages they list look great the reviews of the companies are terrible. I thought about AirBnB but their reviews as a company are worse.

So now I am checking out combinations of bread and breakfast facilities and hotels. I am confused by the room designations.

When they say "double room" without listing the size of the bed, does that mean a double bed? My husband and I are large people and we're used to a king size bed. A queen or double would simply be too small!

Because of past health issues I need a shower and not shower above a bath tub. Can I reasonably expect any traditional B&B to have that?

Any suggestions for the best place to search for my needs and book rooms? I've looked at Hotels.com and TripAdvisor.com for reviews but never booked with them.

Thanks!
