Morning, all.

 

Felt miserable over the weekend, so spent it in bed, sleeping and reading.  What, you ask?  Furious Love, about the affair and  marriages of Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor.

 

So, as an apertif to the morons, here are Taylor's measurements in her prime:

 

5'3", 116lbs, 35-21-36, wearing a 32C cup.

 

It looks like another crappy day here at work, so probably won't be back until lunch, if then.  Hope you all have a wonderful day.

36 30 They were all a bloodthirsty lot back then. I don't think Richard III was any better or worse than any of the rest of them. BTW Leicester is my hometown, little brother sang in the choir at Leicester Cathedral, which is why I find it strange they buried him there. Leicester is not the most inspiring place to visit a shrine to a King.

42 Good morning Morons. I became as sick and nauseated as hell yesterday afternoon and was afraid I was coming down with the crud. I went to bed woke up at 7 pm and was still so sick I couldn't bring myself to even drink water. There was nothing in my stomach to make me ill. Per ace's suggestion, I switched from chewing nicotine gum to the patch a few weeks back. I noticed last night that the patch was irritating my skin so I took it off. I fell asleep and feel fine this morning. I wonder if I hadn't been suffering from nicotine poisoning. At age 55, it's not like it was a bout of morning sickness. Jeez, the nausea was bad though.

"Its symbols and artifacts (God, Bible, Jesus, Heaven, etc) must be accepted in a certain way. "And when times change and these beliefs are no longer credible, the choices we are left with are either rejection or fundamentalism." [[b]Emphasis added. I believe this fellow is sad and confused.

52 @41 Quite frankly John Boehner is a buffoon. What he should have done is channel Tip O'Neil and said that any deal is DOA since the administration has side steeped congress in the process of advice so there will be no consent to this secret deal worked out with a murderous regime with the blood of Americans literally dripping from its hands. And furthermore state there will be no funding for this agreement coming forth from congress. I know Boehenrs an incompetent punk bitch and nothing like that will happen but that's what he should be saying.

64 Iranian negotiators reportedly have made a last-ditch push for more concessions from the U.S. and five other world powers as talks on the fate of Iran's nuclear program come down to the final days before a crucial deadline. The New York Times reported late Sunday that Tehran had backed away from a tentative promise to ship a large portion of its uranium stockpile to Russia, where it could not be used as part of any future weapons program. Typical Persian negotiating tactic. Fredo is being taken to the cleaners. What a joke, except the jokes on us. "My friends, you have nothing to fear from a Fredo Presidency"

There is a divide between "should be" and "is now" that can only be bridged by throwing the current Congress out on their collective (fat) asses. If our "leaders" were actually schooled on what America is all about and what "laws" mean, they would have broomed Choom Boy out of the White House -- and into prison -- years ago.

In fact, if respect for laws (or even fear of them! -- and a basic understanding of what the word "servant" (as in "servant of the people") means -- was president among Our Political Overlords, the Mocha Messiah and his ilk would never have gotten to Washington in the first place; they'd all be drawing welfare.

89 Pray for that Presbyterian minister. He really should be a Unitarian, perhaps, but evidently he wants his pension, I suppose. For him church has ceased to be anything about Scripture, a divine Jesus, or a God who actually does thing or is supernatural in anyway. It's simply about left wing causes. http://tinyurl.com/nc47z6g This is from a group of traditional Episcopalians The tone is sharp, but I understand their being upset. I think more prayers are needed, though. I once knew a Presbyterian minister who told me at a Conference, "I feel such a sense of relief now that I no longer believe that Jesus is divine in anyway." I didn't say it, but thought to myself, "And this is good thing for a minister of the Gospel?" Then I was at another Conference, this time there was a Methodist minister there who said, "Imagine, Some people actually think Jesus was literally resurrected from the dead!!" The other three people at the table including me all raised our hands said "I do." That person later left the Christian ministry and is now doing really new age type stuff. I think I'll leave it at that. I've said too much. See you all tomorrow, folks, with some more Holy Week hymns. Keep on praying!

94 But if it grows too big, the kids might have to call up the reserves from the Disney Magnet School http://www.disney.cps.k12.il.us/ We'd call the global TV concert "Live From Lincoln Park". But you do see the recently solved problem, don't you? Democrats celebrating in a public park named after The Great Emancipator, in the Land of Lincoln, The People's Republic of Chicago? With Bruce Rauner (R-IL) holding the purse strings now, things might go an eensy, weensy, bit easier than before. Need still more help? The French School of Chicago is standing by! http://www.lyceechicago.org/

Maybe, I'm just speculatin' here, but maybe, if the military had righteous, patriotic purposes (like, you know, occasionally being alowed to WIN wars), higher standards, and a CiC who wasn't out to destroy them, d'y think that might encourage quality service members?

164 "Mini usb to usb" Well, sure, if you want to do it the easy way... I have software that supposedly lets me look at and copy files from the cell. The paint program tells me the copies aren't really JPGs, though. What th? Then, this tablet has 2 USB ports, a mini on the screen/tablet where the power plug goes, and a regular on the keyboard/dock where the bug for the wireless mouse goes. I have a multiplex plug purchased with the tablet. Mini USB to 3 ports: 2 reg & 1 mini. You'd think that would be the key. But, no. the multiplex can go between the power plug and the tablet, but it apparently does not transmit power. So, sans multiplex for reg usb, I either have to not have power or not have wireless mouse while the cell is connected. That's the only way I've found. Like I said, the easy way.
