   Gram77 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Wow, where are all of you with reference to the news out of England?
Yesterday at 10:00 EST .



   FlatCityGirl  I'm still reading and filtering the news. Getting out now may serve to stem the tide somewhat, but . . . the country is over-run with Muslims who are determined to turn the little island into a Muslim Stronghold. They've got a good start. London now has a Muslim mayor who is already imposing Islamic law.

While England Slept. Did anyone ever read that book?

History is repeating itself at a marathon pace.

   Daisymay  WHO in London thought it was a good idea to vote in a Muslim Mayor? Yikes! I can see why they wanted out of the EU before they were forced to admit thousands of Refugees, but you would then have thought they would be smarter than to vote in a Muslim Mayor. Go figure!
Yesterday at 11:45 EST .


   FlatCityGirl  I expect a Muslim population majority in London is why they now have a Muslim mayor.

Hamtramck, Michigan is majority Muslim and has elected a Muslim city Council.

In Dearborn, Michigan, the Muslims sued the Christian churches to get the Church Bells that tolled during the day, silenced. But five times a day, the Muslim call to prayer is broadcast over loud speakers all over town.

The federal government --the Mulatto and his henchmen, are importing Muslims by the thousands and "sneaking" them into cities all over the nation.

Amarillo, Texas has hoards of Syrians. One just took the manager of a WalMart hostage and was killed by Amarillo's SWAT. Almost all reference to the incident has been scrubbed from the news.

How many other "incidents" are happening all over that we never hear about.

Twin Falls, Idaho.

Have you read the articles posted here in this main page concerning that "incident"?

Islam is not a religion of peace, and Muslims are more dangerous than a cast iron skillet full of rattlesnakes!

Yesterday at 13:10 EST .


   HopeandGlory  . . . and I agree with them . . . SMILE!!!

   StormCnter  I hoped for this vote result. It will be good for GB and good for the US. Markets will rebound. Scotland may be close behind with a vote to get out of the Empire.

   MeiDei  I'd like to hear from our too infrequent poster from Belgium and his take on how Brussels is responding. Also Zurich Mike's opinion would be interesting.

   Gram77 posted on Suggested Reading  Was in Books-A-Million and saw that a new book I have been watching for is now for sale. It is Summit by Harry Farthing. I think it might be worth spending the money. It takes our local library a good 10 months to get new books. Check it out on line, the summery sounds very interesting.

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  Has anyone seen the previews for The Secret Life Of House Pets? I need something that requires little thinking and some laughter. Might see it.

   StormCnter  Gram, do you mean the trailer? I'll post it on a new comment.

   Gram77 posted on Pet Peeves  Ever get backed into in a parking lot? Hubby and I did 3 weeks ago. My peeve? When in the dickens is this thing going to get settled and our car repaired? A root canal would be easier!
June 20 at 07:24 EST .



   StormCnter  Gram, parking lots are the worst place to get into fender benders. And, also they are fertile spots for scams. A couple of those have been tried on me. You know, the old "hey, that dent in my fender wasn't there when I left my car". And, "You must have bumped me because my headlight is busted". Don't fall for them.
Thursday at 08:40 EST .


   Gram77  The driver that hit us had the nerve to get out, look at a smashed in rear passenger door and then tell us it's not too bad and they have a really good place for us to get it repaired. I thought that only happened on those TV court shows. Guess not.
Thursday at 12:25 EST .


   MeiDei  You don't even need a car, or drive, to have a scam foisted on you. A few years after my Dad died I got a call claiming my father hit his car & offered to pay cash for damages rather than use his auto insurance. I explained that my Dad hadn't driven in years and someone was playing a joke on him. The calls stopped when I told the fellow that I taped the call, had his # and was doing him a favor by giving the info to our local police for follow-up. After the 1920's my dad had no reason to drive what with taxis, buses, subways & trolley cars in nearby abundance.

   StormCnter  Mei, I had to clean up a scam on my own father after his death, too. Mine didn't turn out as well as yours. My dad had gotten a letter from a lawyer representing a person who claimed her car was damaged in a parallel parking spot by my dad's car. There was a photo of the two vehicles (hers and my father's ). My dad's car was unoccupied. When he got the letter he knew he had done no such thing, it was a rip-off, and he foolishly ignored the lawyer's letter. Then he died and as executor of his estate I had to pay the default judgement the woman received. Always respond, even if it's a scam.

   Gram77 posted on Main Page The Lobby  This should go to the movie site but I'm not sure how many still go there so.......Just finished watching Nebraska. I thought it was a great story, I thought Bruce Dern should have gotten the Academy Award and I thought it was extremely appropriate that it was done in black and white. My favorite part was when Woody drove through town in the new truck.

   StormCnter  Gram, I liked "Nebraska" a lot, too. A couple of my granddaughters watched it with me and thought it a winner.

   Gram77 posted on Suggested Reading  Made a trip to the library today and picked up a rather large book with really interesting history entitled "violence and justice in frontier; Los Angeles". The back book jacket reads: In Eternity Street by John Mack Faragher he has unearthed a blood-soaked history of 19th century Los Angeles that blows away Wild West fantasies. Really eager to get going.

   Gram77 posted on Main Page The Lobby  As you know the Olympics are just around the corner. I am concerned about the boating and rowing events. I keep seeing pictures and reading concerns reported by boaters and the Olympic officials as to the filth in the water. And if the reports are accurate the completion of venues, etc. are not ready for the athletes. I have no idea how accurate all this is, but I am concerned.

   FlatCityGirl  Studies Find 'Super Bacteria' In Rio's Olympic Venues, Top Beaches

I'm wondering if the whole thing isn't going to be called off before it starts.

I don't know what protocol would be for a nation withdrawing its athletes, but [in my opinion] America should do it.

Carter did it. He didn't allow the American Olympians to to Russia for political reasons.

I don't know whether each individual sport/coach can just pull their athletes/teams --like open-water teams not going, while bicycle sports go. That only addresses the danger in the nastiness of the water, not the rest of the medical danger, such as Zitka.

I also wonder if the athletes are actually aware of what risk they face if they attend. It is not beyond belief that the coaches and other big wigs are down-playing the danger because all they care about it gold medals. I would hate to think that any coach could be that materialistic, but this day and age . . .

   Safetydude  The IOC would never allow the cancellation of the Olympics.
Too much money and power involved; sorta' like the establishment Republicans.

   FlatCityGirl  I think you're right. Nothing short of a terrorist attack on Rio would actually shut the Olympics down. Maybe not even that. I guess if numerous nations pulled out they might have to shut it down, but probably not. I would like to know what the news coverage is in nations with big teams. Usually there are thousands of fans of all venues who travel to see their teams compete. I'm guessing that there are not going to be big tourism numbers in Rio that they are expecting.

   Gram77  Am I correct in thinking that Rio needs the income that will come from the Olympics?

   Gram77 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Hi All. We are still here but I must say the wind gusts were pretty tough and being in a very old mobile home made us a bit edgy. The rains were wild and whipping. When one of those bands came through you couldn't see across the street. I am only aware of one severe damage in the entire park. A roof was torn partially off a home and the fire department told the owners they could not stay here. Scary. Mobile homes can only stand so much, but this time we did good.

   Tulsa  I commented and it went away. Praise the Lord you are safe. I pray your neighbors are home again very soon. I can't imagine what they are experiencing.

   Gram77 posted on Main Page The Lobby  What's with all the ads on the main site? Does Lucianne need some support? When I first found this site there were ads but not like this! Kind of distracting if you ask me.

   Tulsa  It's 7:30 am on Thurs. The ads are gone on the homepage. The cartoon is up and ABP is off on the homepage so I can see the cartoon. I sent a complaint and screen shot to ABP yesterday. I have no idea if the ads will be back or not. Mildred and I had a nice back and forth yesterday and Mildred recommended AdFender if this continues here.

The ads were on every page yesterday.

   Mildred  Good morning Tulsa and Gram. It's only 5:45 am here and I decided to see if AdFender is working. It's sorta working. I have one large strip of ads on the Home Page in the middle of the posts. I think I can live with that. When ABP works, it's the better of the two but I got tired on the on again off again problems. I can always switch back to ABP. It's still strange that this is the only site I read that has this problem.

   Mildred  A final note. At first I continued to get ads with AdFender but I went to the main console and clicked on filters. I then checked all the boxes and now I only have a few on Yahoo mail. If an ad appears, I've exited the website and then opened it again. It usually disappears. So far, it's doing what it says it's supposed to do.
