   Gram77 posted on Pet Peeves  Has anyone ever sat still and did not comment when someone is telling a story about something that absolutely is incorrect? Happened to me today. A gal I know very well told about a situation where she tried to set up a banking on line program for me and I just couldn't catch on. Of course every one got a laugh out of it. I have no idea what brought that on and what's worse is it never happened. I thought I would never keep quiet but then decided it was a battle I would not win so I laughed along when every one else and hoped the subject would quickly change. The person had to know this was a lie. What causes such behavior?

   MeiDei  Insecurity maybe. I'm sorry she chose you for her tale; that you held your tongue is admirable - sometimes it's the best reply since we often think of something much better to say long after an incident. Should she, or anyone in that circle mention it to you, enlighten her/them with the truth adding you kept quiet because you didn't want to embarrass her.

   StormCnter  Gram, you have approached her about it privately, though, haven't you? You were right not to start a public fuss, but damned if I'd let her get away without knowing I was angry.
Yesterday at 06:58 EST .


   Gram77  Yes, I did and talk about walking on egg shells. What I got was a silly grin and a wave of her hand. At least I shared my feelings. I will turn it over and move on. Thanks to MeiDei and Storm, both of whom I consider real friends. : )

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  I sure missed a lot of good stuff! My computer was out of commission for several days.

   StormCnter  Well, welcome back, Gram! I hate it when the computer is down. I sympathize.

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  To MeiDei: Be sure to see Primal Fear. You will see a great movie and will be hit by two very unexpected surprises, and not the obvious ones Hollywood usually tosses in.

   MeiDei  Thanks, you've sparked my interest (I have to confess I'm not an Edward Norton fan, great actor - he must remind me of some past unpleasantness ).

   Gram77 posted on Suggested Reading  Goodreads had a message on my email about new February books just out and one caught my eye. The title is The Orphan's Tale by Pam Jenoff. The book has a good review and of course my list has grown again. Those of you readers, take a look. You might also find it interesting.

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  Anyone remember a Jane Wyman movie titled Lucy Galant? I always loved that movie and since I was knocked off my feet with some sort of a virus I thought this would be great to watch since I was down for the count anyway. Think I lasted about half an hour. Phooie! Wonder if I could find that movie anyway? They were running Wyman movies most of the day and into the night. I love old stuff.

   StormCnter  Gram, this appears to be the complete movie, since it's an hour and 44 minutes.

   StormCnter  On almost any video, if Full Screen is an available perk, the symbol will be in the lower right-hand corner. On this one, there is a little square. Click it and go Full Screen. Click Esc to exit Full screen.

   Gram77 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Just wondering.......what the heck is going on with Obama and Russia?? I'm not totally comfortable with Trump but he sure has work waiting on him!!

   Calvinesq  Gram: I think he is doubling down on a lie, i.e., that the Russians hacked or unduly influenced our election and helped Trump, or whatever. He has not produced any proof. We all know that Trump ran a better campaign, and Hillary was a disastrous candidate. No matter. Obama had to do this to back his claim that the Russians did it (somehow )!

I'm hoping both sides realize that he's outta here in three weeks, and to just stay calm.

   GO3  ABC News just spilled the beans. The charge is the Russians hacked DNC emails and successfully phished/spoofed several dem operatives. This is hacking the DNC, not hacking the election, which one can't do with paper ballots or standalone machines. IOW, because the DNC was careless and it was revealed how crooked they are, then this was "hacking" the election. Calvinesq is correct. The only way to make this ridiculous claim believable is to double down and show how serious he is. The guy is not only petty, but dumb as a box of rocks.

   MeiDei  Ironic isn't it - this administration spies on it's citizens but complains when others do so. All nations "observe" each other - know your friends and enemies.

   3XALADY  And a MERRY CHRISTMAS to you, Gram. It's kind of different with DH's death but I tell myself I am not the only widow and millions have gone before me and made it. And a Merry Christmas to all others who enter here. We have many reasons to be merry. Just think of the alternative.

   StormCnter  Gram, your post triggered a long ago memory. When I was in high school, a friend invited two couples and his own girlfriend to have dinner at his house celebrating his birthday. His mom made a delicious pot roast with all the trimmings and afterward (it was a spring evening ), we kids played croquet on the front lawn by the light of the porch lamp. The front door was open, his parents were watching Lawrence Welk and Myron Floren was playing away on his accordion. A thunderstorm came up and our host's dad helped the boys put all the cars in the barn to protect from hail. The next day, my boyfriend's father was very interested in why there was manure on his vehicle's tires. A long time ago, but a sweet memory.

   Gram77  It's nice to know I somehow helped this memory pop up. Funny how many things we have lurking somewhere waiting to be remembered.
