   Gram77 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Got a bit of a giggle this morning. Was watching the early news and it showed Ryan Lochte's debut on Dancing With The Stars. Some how protesters about his Rio behavior got in and got onto the dance floor. No one was hurt and of course those people were taken out. Then.........Locthe, who in my opinion has no common sense, told the reporters it was like having his heart ripped out and stepped on. Oh, please, he needs to get on with his life and grow up and stay out of the media.

   Gram77 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Burning question for all you really intelligent folks.........the press (years ago ) used to publish the facts, you know, tell it like it is. Why can't they anymore????

   GO3  Because they are college graduates and the truth ship sailed long ago from academia.

   Fireball27  It's called brainwashing. Used to start in high school and really take off in college. Now it starts as soon as they can get their hands on your kids, usually preschool these days. That is why they are trying to get free preschool for all. More union teachers, and earlier brainwashing.

   Gram77  If I had school age children today I would opt for home schooling. Gives them the freedom to think for themselves and to ask questions, not just accept what is being taught in the class room. I would wish for independent children with healthy self esteem.

   MeiDei  I'm w/you Gram, if I had a child today I'd home school. The problem today however, is young parents grew up during and after the D0E took over & might not be historically accurate. The challenge is to get a child to think independently, reason it out and discuss.

   Gram77 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Frightening announcement on Lucianne; Hillery Clinton removed from 9/11 ceremony due to a medical situation. I know Trump keeps harping on her health, however, could something actually be wrong. Worrisome to say the least.

   Gram77  There is something wrong for sure. This is no time for games, the world and and our beloved U.S. are in big trouble. Put side the ego and get honest!

   MeiDei  Just saw a photo of her on BB & noticed her fingernails are blue on 1/2 moons. Checked it out - indicative of lack of oxygen to the blood and brain; poor circulation.
If so, it would explain her stumbling, falling, needing help standing, etc.

   Gram77 posted on Suggested Reading  I log everything I read and today I was finally tossing out some of the old logs. I ran across a marvelous book that really moved me me. The book is The Art Of Racing In The Rain by Garth Stein. It is one of the rare few I would read again. I looked at this book in the store for a very long time and finally I got it at the library and wondered why I had walked away so many times. It is a beautiful and tragic love story and a dog that is a wonder. I promise whomever decides to read this will not be sorry.

   StormCnter  I loved that book, too, and when my granddaughters and I were packing boxes to send to the troops in the Middle East, this was one of the paperbacks we tucked in.

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  Sort of a movie question. Did anyone see the Revenent? Excuse sp. I had a friend see it and she said it was terrible. Is she just picky?

   GO3  JMO. I didn't see the Revenent and cannot comment on the quality of the film, The reason I didn't go out of my way to watch it is because it's essentially a remake of Man in the Wilderness (1971 ) and both are based on the same book. It's probably my old codger showing through, but I prefer to watch Richard Harris and John Huston over Dicaprio any day. It seems Holloywood hasn't had an original thought in decades. You want to see the story told in an exciting fashion, go rent/download Man in the Wilderness.

   Gram77  I also saw the Richard Harris film and thought it was very good. I found the book on Amazon and just might get it. It's super inexpensive.

   Gram77 posted on Suggested Reading  I am always looking for off the beaten track books. I was on the site Bookreporter today and found a book I MUST get. The title is The Perfect Horse by E. Letts. There is an excellent review on Bookreporter. All I'm saying is that this is a true story. Now all you avid readers have to look it up. : )

   StormCnter  I did look it up, Gram, and I will put it on my list. I read Letts' "The Eighty-Dollar Champion" and enjoyed it a lot. I sent it to my son-in-law who still talks about it.

   Gram77 posted on Suggested Reading  Just finished Long Man and really liked it. Attention all readers.......give it a try! I am now into a book by Ian Mc Guire entitled The North Water. It's about the difficult days of whaling but not the normal rather common story line. The whalers are a very interesting bunch, especially the surgeon on the ship and a captain who is never wrong. May as well read because if I go outside I will get either blown or washed away!
