Good morning chrissy
I doing well thank you. How about yourself ? Well, I see we're getting our daily dose of babble. Kind of reminds me of the story of the tower babble in the bible where everyones language was changed and they couldn't understand what was being said by each other. ( and before you all get started on me, I do know it is spelled Babel. This was used as an illustration of some of the rants on here, Thank you veddy much.)
Ah bon? Which French restaurant?
@bobcat(iah) hello to you my friend. I can only imagine, I'm sure one was preaching and I'm glad I missed it. We are freezing cold here but thankfully we have heat and hot water. How are you this evening?
I'm doing pretty good dazzle. We are in the mid 70's down here and walking around in shorts and t-shirts.
I'm glad my friend bobcat (iah). Right now I'm bundled up with a bunch of layers. These bones of mine are not used to the cold but they have to adjust.
@jif, good night and the trolls never listen to me so I hope you have some clout.
Lol yea bobcat, you just new the spelling police were gonna come out of the woodwork didnt ya? Lmao anyway i dont claim to be perfect and i sure as heck dont claim to KNOW everything like foolio.
Lmao @ qqqqqjim, i know right? People who cant sing shouldnt give it a go on TV huh? And he WAS terrible made me wanta puke too. Lol
congrats Miss NY..and when Miss California was asked about euthanasia..her reply was: "thats a vaccination right?" geesh
Everybody knows that Euthanasia is Eudora's little sister.
Inquiring minds want to know what you ate.
I never felt that urge to puke when Bert Parks sang "There she is..." What I found "pukeworthy" was the song itself.. with all its phony tremolos. But most people loved it ... after all, it "sold." I rather enjoyed it because my kids made fun of it.
Good evening @chrissy. bobcat(iah), and @jif my fellow New Yorker, as to the topic of this thread, count me in to the who cares club.I must have missed the babble and I thank God for that.
How are you my friend ? The babble you missed was just that. The same-o, same-o
Hi, @ dazzle. You missed the Pageant fun and some trolls.
@ bobcat, @ chrissy, @ anybody else who was really here tonight:
I'm going to sleep now. Early day tomorrow.
@jif, if we can only get rid of the trolls. They used to be amusing but now it appears as if it's a bunch of uneducated children.
@ dazzle: I told the trolls not to come back tomorrow. They always do what I tell them to do, so that problem is solved.
@little mister, if you are yawning already you should go to bed.
Sorry i missed you again dazzle but bobcat was right you really didnt miss nothing here.
she got elected just because she answered the question – to some people or the judges thinking – right, Its not a right or wrong answer.
Fighting violence with violence? Putting armed security guards in school does not mean fighting violence with violence, stupid! Its a deterrent measure!!! We are not waging a war against random school shooting!!!
It will definitely prevent random shootings by insane kids or adults. Deterrent measure, you understand?
We have nuclear weapons but they will never be used but only for preventing from hostile people using them.
In this country, gun control will never be effective, so the only way to prevent such random shootings is to implement deterrent measures to prevent them.
