   Bettijo  Is Obama a Saudi Muslim "plant" in the White House?

March 24 at 06:36 EST .

   Gram77  Bettijo: I am very careful with comments and I am not a political student, but when Obama arrived on the scene a very close friend of mine and myself said that this man was a a figure being handled by powerful people, that he had no thoughts of his own. She and I have kept quiet but here it is for anyone to see and think about.

   StormCnter  That dress is prettier from the back than the front. Don't her advisers know that little weights should be sewn into the hem of full skirts? Or that maybe a lightweight fabric isn't the best choice? I feel a little sorry for Michelle. Not many of her clothing efforts are successful. I liked the yellow dress she wore on the first day in Japan.

   MeiDei  Very short video of a Harvard Economics professor with words of wisdom that may surprise you - especially the last sentence.

   Balogreene  Wow! Thanks MeiDei.
March 21 at 18:46 EST .

   Bettijo  I would really liked to have heard this professor, but with my hearing disability, the music in the background prevented that from happening.
Why, oh why, is it necessary to pipe in music that over rides the speaker? It happens all the time.

   MeiDei  Bettijo, click on the link above, then click on the title in the upper left corner, this will bring you to the original posting on you tube - then click on the little "CC" box in the lower right - this will enable closed captioning and you can read what he is saying. Some words are not correct i.e., "con" instead of God and "los" instead of laws but it's one of the best closed captions that I've seen in a while. Amazing what a foreign student recognized that our students seem oblivious to. Enjoy!

   Bettijo  Thanks, MeiDei, I usually turn on CC for YouTube videos and on NetFlix. But, still my question, "Why is loud background music necessary?" I do not watch any drama on TV because of background noise and CC is too hard to turn on and off. However, I just changed to DirectTV and they tell me it is now easy to turn CC on and off from my remote, but I have not tried yet.

   MeiDei  Bettijo, the over-loud music caused me to stop watching a program as it drowned out the people. With today's technology it's not hard to modulate the background music; I guess it depends on the person working the controls.

   Bettijo  You must watch this! It is so beautiful and moving.

   Escaped commieny  Opening statement from cap at the Luci reunion:
"Many thanks to Randy, Wendy, Lucianne and her staff, and the various people who conspired behind the scenes to make this incredible event possible, Each and every one of you demonstrate what it looks like to be Love on Feet.
I want to express my profound gratitude, appreciation, and utter amazement at being asked to speak before this rather stellar group of people, for whom I have such high regard. I have gotten to know some of you via e-mail on a much deeper level than we can do in a 200 word post in a non-chatting environment..."
Thanks to Josh for making a forum where we can chat, both of them RIP
PS: I have the whole speech, too lengthy for here but my email is on the mothership for anyone wanting a copy. EC aka L

   Sanddollar  I looked this up after reading the post below about the First Lady's suit for her visit to the Emperor of Japan and his wife. I agree this is not appropriate. And her heels on her shoes were too high. It is too flashy for Japanese tastes. I figure she doesn't listen to advice from the State Dept about how to dress.

   Belwhatter  Did anyone catch John Cardillo on The Blaze today March16th? He explained the Soros connection financing different organizations ,all the well known bad actors involved , to bring the muslim brotherhood into power instead of the police. They care zilch about the people of Ferguson ,just using them as willing dupes for their ullterior purpose.

   RedWhiteBlue  so the other week I clicked on something that ''updated'' my computer to the latest version and I think I lost my AddBlockPlus that I downloaded a while ago. Is that possible or did it get hidden or what? I just downloaded another one and it took I wonder how many can you download without messing things up, which I usually do. Gosh I dislike upgrading these computers because you never win it seems. You almost have to recreate what you've had already. Sheeeeeesh!.

   StormCnter  Red, yes you will have to add some of the extensions again after an update, such as AdBlock, but there's absolutely no risk in doing so. You can reinstall adblock a zillion times as far as I know. I have done it. Each download of something such as AdBlock will pile up in your Download file. That's not a problem either, but if it bothers you, just go into that file and delete the extras. If you have trouble or don't know how to do it, email me at Or with any other questions I might be able to help with.
March 15 at 05:36 EST .

   RedWhiteBlue  StormCnter: Thanx so much for all the good info! I love it. I did look for the AB download and I don't see it...maybe it's under another name. But either way if it's not a trouble maker then I'll just leave well enough alone. Thanx again. And I'll keep you email address for further problems.

   StormCnter  This is not something to worry about, as I said. But to look for the Download file, if you have Windows 7,when you click the Windows icon at the lower left on your Taskbar, you will see a double vertical row of programs. At the top right is probably an icon with your name. It will be listed above "Documents". Double-Clicking on that icon brings up several files in alphabetical order. You will see "Download". Double-click and you will see all the things you have downloaded. Look for AdblockPlus. If there is more than one, you can delete the oldest. If there is only one, then your AdBlockPlus is overriding older copies and that's just fine.

   Pickle1  I tried it with my dog who has constant ear yeast infections and it did not work. However, the vet food did have potato in it which we were not aware; so I don't know if I will try it again. We have changed to Orejen. Not sure if it is working either. The only thing that works so far is taking her periodically to the vet. I am thinking about using a probitic and enzymes. Our poor dog. She also has coconut and occasionally apple cider vinegar. Maybe someday, I will run across something that does work. I hope so for her sake.

   Gerty  Glad you asked, Mr.Sparky!

Family get-together for St. Patrick's day. It will be corned beef, cabbage, potatoes and Irish soda bread. But we will slice the soda bread like a pie.

   Lonestar Jack  I usually boil one brisket and roast one just so I will have plenty for Ruebens later on.
I tried the enclosed url for Soda bread and my neighbors said it was the best they ever had. Perhaps a little sweet for diner, but great for breakfast.
