First,thoughts and prayers to our dear friend and bestest buddy Chrissy for her and her family. Hopefully they’re enjoying some quality time together.
Yesterday was the fastest two-hour lunch I ever had. There’s just so much we don’t know about each other. We’re meeting again next Friday for supper and she asked me to invite DW. It’s still a little early to to try to get close to my grandson,but there’s time. Besides selling insurance she’s also a Zumba instructor and is always ‘cleansing.’ You know,gluten-free and all that. GP would like her.

    Absentee Ballot Count Begins In Md. House Race

    First-term Democratic U.S. Rep. John Delaney led Republican Dan Bongino by 2,016 votes out of nearly 182,000 cast after Allegany, Frederick and Garrett counties reported their canvass results Thursday. Officials were also counting absentee ballots in part of Montgomery and all of Washington counties.

    Washington County Elections Director Kaye Robucci said her board won’t have results until Friday.

    Never give up while there’s still hope.

    House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) warned President Barack Obama again against taking executive action on immigration Thursday, telling Obama he would be playing with matches and risk burning himself.
    The Wall Street Journal reports that there was additional subtext to Boehner’s warning, specifically a year of discussions — unreported until now by the WSJ — between the two men about achieving a legislative compromise on immigration reform.
    According to the report, in the summer of 2013, Boehner and Obama began discussing ways to achieve a move forward with immigration and building trust. The WSJ notes they “bonded over a shared passion for golf.”

    You always knew he was a duplicitous little turd.

    <img src="Dingy” alt=”” />
    Before ceding full control of Congress to the GOP in January, Senate Democrats are planning to rush a host of critical measures to President Obama’s desk, including bills to revive dozens of expired tax breaks and avoid a government shutdown for another year.
    This comes as a complete surprise to….no one.

    13 Year-Old Pregnant Teen Arrested in St. Louis for Knock-Out Style Robberies
    <img src="knock out game” alt=”” />
    Several young teenagers have been taken into custody for three attacks in downtown St. Louis in recent weeks, prompting officials to bolster patrols in the heart of the city.

    Three girls, including a pregnant 13-year-old, were arrested in two attacks last month, and a boy was arrested in an attack earlier this week.
    In nature,some animals overproduce to propagate the species because of predation.Apparently some two-legged species do as well.

    Ferguson Police Report Accuses Michael Brown’s Mother Of Armed Robbery…
    Look at this face…is this not the epitome of maternal wisdom and grace??

    Michael Brown’s mother has been named as one of the ‘attackers’ who assaulted and robbed vendors selling t-shirts commemorating the youngster’s death.

    A report from Ferguson police identified Lesley McSpadden, 34, as one of a group of up to 30 people that ran into the tent and ransacked the stall in the Missouri city on Saturday October 18.

      It’s pretty obvious the only thing she cares about is making money off her dead kid. Maybe if she’d been so devoted to him in life, he would be in school now.

    Man to be eaten alive by anaconda in Discovery special

    In Eaten Alive, naturalist and wildlife filmmaker Paul Rosolie aims to be devoured by an anaconda while in a custom-built snake-proof suit.
    We’re told Rosolie covered himself in pig’s blood to try and make himself appetizing to the snake. Since the “snake-proof suit” has a cord on the top of it, Rosolie is presumably in no risk of being trapped inside the snake. We are also told the snake does not die.
    And I was gonna put this on my bucket list.Just damn.


    • I think the ratings would be better if they put Moochelle in the snake-proof suit. I’d pay to see that, as long as she went in head first. Don’t feel like hearing her play-by-play.

      Reminds me of an email I got today about a chauffeur who hit and killed an old cow standing in the road.

      The boss ordered the chauffeur to go to the farm house and report what he had done. He was gone for hours and, when he returned, he was in no shape to get behind the wheel.

      He explained to his boss that after he told the farmer he was Nancy Pelosi’s chauffeur and he had just run over and killed the old cow, the farmer had refused to let him leave again until he had gathered his entire clan to celebrate the chauffeur’s achievement.

    Ever Had a Case of ‘Parking Space Rage’? This Video Takes It to the Next Level.
    Every driver has likely experienced that moment of frustration when someone zips into a spot they were patiently waiting for with their blinker on. And who can forget the jaw-tightening moment when you think you found an empty slot only to notice another car is halfway over the line, taking up two spots, when you start to pull in.

    Cosmo Hails Historic Number of Women in Congress…After Rooting Against Victorious Female Conservatives

    Wednesday morning, Cosmopolitan magazine hailed the fact that 100 women are going to serve in Congress for the first time ever. The only problem? The magazine rooted against a fifth of them – or at least ignored them

    Obama to Host Lunch With Lawmakers at the White House Today
    <img src="” alt=”” />
    Tensions in the room could be high as Obama continues to threaten executive action on illegal immigration, a move both Boehner and McConnell have said will “poison the well.” President Obama said earlier this week he will ask the new Congress for authorization to fight ISIS and for more aid to fight Ebola in Africa. Boehner and McConnell have already expressed a desire to get the Keystone pipeline built and to repeal unpopular parts of Obamacare.

    The reporters gasped and then laughed at Josh Earnest trying to spin the results of Tuesday’s shellacking.

    Reporter: Would you say Tuesday night was a big loss for Democrats?

    Josh Earnest: Well, uh, again. In terms of the likes of punditry and analysis…

    Reporters: (Gasps) It’s not punditry. It’s a real question… Cuz you guys spin it. I understand why you’re spinning it.

    Obama Advisor: Dems Need to Figure Out how to Talk to Whites
    Democrats are never going to win in midterms if we don’t figure out how to talk to white voters,” Burton told Megyn Kelly of Fox News. “I don’t think that the message that we have has been able to really translate to the coalition of voters that helped bring Republicans into even more power.”

    Well, yes, white voters do remain a sizable bloc of the electorate and might be worth Democrats’ attention.

    I am in Mommy Heaven right now. Warrior Princess gave up a whole day of her precious grad-school-finals-rapidly-approaching study time to drive 8 hours for some Hyphen Time.

    I got to spend some time with Junior Bear over crayons and bouncey balls while Mama Bear shared Junior Bear stories that evoked many, “Oh you did that too!” stories. Then they went out for breakfast with Nonno so I could have some wonderful one-on-one with Warrior Princess.

    This involved much squealing over canned goods (we share a newfound passion for putting glass jars full of delicious treats into boiling baths) and some serious commiseration over just how much harder grad school is than undergrad (she and I are the only Hyphens who have had that experience so far).

    Then they left for the Ithaca Science Center, which has a super fun toddler section, and a very tired Grammy Hyphen hit the hay and slept HARD. I haven’t had such good sleep is SO LONG!

    There may be a little more visiting with the Bears before they go with Nonno to visit the Great Grands in Western MA (or, as they refer to themselves, the Walker Brigade).

    I got a few pics to remember the sweetness by, but Junior Bear really did not like the flash, so it was only a few. Other bonuses of the visit included Dearest cleaning the house … even the bathrooms! … and a bouquet of sunflowers. :O) It doesn’t get any better than this … at least not so long as we live in this “valley of tears.” Heaven’s gonna be so great!!
