   Alice  Funny! my first choice was Rick Perry. Oh well. Then it was Scott Walker. Oh well. (I lean toward governors. ) Dear Hubby likes Trump. I like Cruz, but worry about his and Trump's un-favorable ratings against Herself or even The Bern. There is and has not been one Republican I would not vote for in November. It started out as and remains a great slate. May God save us from the Democrats.

   FlatCityGirl  Historians are going to be writing tomes about this campaign season for the next hundred years. One Democrat candidate is a Communist, one Democrat candidate is a Communist and on the verge of being indicted, and one Republican candidate has split the Republican party/GOPe like Lizzy Borden swinging the axe.

Whatever happens, the GOPe will still not have learned their lesson. You can take that to the bank, so when it's over, the TEA party people and other good Conservatives are going to have to get together, come together, and write a platform and get going on a third party. There is no other answer.

The GOPe is entrenched and hidebound and arrogant. That is not going to change.

   MeiDei  A Daily Beast article on The Forum annoyed me. Having helped in the administration of two 501 C(3 ) charitable trusts - one personal & one business related (neither one received outside donations or did fund raising ); I found the writer (Resnick? ) to be selective, misinformed or maybe even willfully disingenuous. First of all I'm neither for or against Trump - my vote is still under consideration. Secondly, people should inform themselves of the regulations guiding charitable trusts, minimum distribution requirements, gifts/grants allowed and familiarize themselves with economics -past & current, when evaluating fundraising. Money received is invested in a portfolio governed by rules, the income of which is what does or does not get spent on programs & admin expenses. Going into the principal results in less investment (dividend/interest ) income to spend & therefore will necessitate fund raising activity. The author of the article said Fisher House provides homes for military - no I doesn't. It provides temporary housing for families who live away from the service member confined to a military hospital who would be financially unable to visit otherwise. Here's Charity Navigator's FH report (4 stars out of 4 ) http://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=search.summary
&orgid=7585#.VqueyFJuldg.
I noticed in the comments after disparaging remarks about DAV and WWP - really? Maybe they had a personal bad experience. Check for yourself http://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=search.summary
&orgid=7589#.Vquc41Juldg
Disabled American Veterans and http://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=search.summary&orgid=12842#.Vquay1Juldg Wounded Warrior Project. On a personal note, I wrote the DAV years ago for information for helping a paralyzed person who was not a vet - within a week they sent me a package that was helpful. In closing here is Charity Navigator's link for a list organizations alphabetically - trust but verify, yes? http://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=search.alpha<r=D

   Mikkins2  I have recommended "Extortion" by Peter Schweizer on the previously on posts in the main room, but I really do think it deserves another more permanent post. Everyone should read this, or like in my case, listen to the audio book. I have no connection to Mr. Schweizer, nor will I get any benefit other then not being the only head that exploded from it. If you take blood pressure meds, I sugget you double up for this one.

   MeiDei  Thanks for the recommendation. Here's the NYT review - a fair one.

   Mikkins2  Thanks for that. I really recommend the audio book. The reader does a great job. Mr. Schweizer describes how politicians of both parties shake down people, businesses, and industries for money. Its one of those books you have to read/listen too in chunks, at least for me, due to the anger it creates.

   Balogreene  We finally got out Wednesday. We hired a guy with a pickup and a plow, and his 14-yr old son The boy pushed the snow into the street, the father plowed it out tp the already established piles. When the young man got to our sidewalk, he just shoveled and threw the snow. When he was done with that, he went back and cleaned up what he'd thrown on the previously shoveled walk. Worth every penny we paid.

   Gram77  Just some small talk. I took a friend to Aspen Dental for implants. Let me say this, never any implants for me! Her pain showed on her face like a bright light. She was told she will have 5 days of severe pain and then it will settle down. No thanks!! I had no idea what the procedure was but her entire implants for all the the bottom teeth were done all at once.

   StormCnter  Gram, my husband had some implants (to replace a removable bridge ) several years ago and his experience was just fine. Very little discomfort during the procedure and very little afterwards. His procedure was done in two visits, one to embed the little devices in his jaw and then the second to attach the teeth. I'm sorry about your friend's experience.

   Gram77  Her work was all done today with all teeth in the bottom implanted. I thought it was rather severe but apparently that is the way Aspen does it. Your hubby's experience was what I thought would be done with her. This is gross but what worried me was how much she was bleeding. I plan to check her out this evening. She was recently widowed and lives alone.

   Balogreene  I needed full dentures that fit and worked. I researched. Many places here in the DC area advertise a full mouth in a day. I can't imagine if they had to pull, put in the stubs, and add the the teeth in one day! That would be killer.

A friend had two implants, they put in the rods, and then went back a few weeks later, after they were sure the rods had set (one had not ).

When I got my full-mouth dentures they told me I could get two implants on each jaw that would anchor the dentures. So far, I'll deal with fixedness!
