  1. NOOOOOOOOO! My Dan Stevens shall not be seen w/ that revolting redhead, period!! :-P

    Loved him in The Line of Beauty ( based on the Booker Prize-winning novel by the out author Alan Hollinghurst (of which I am not a fan, tho' :-( ). I have seen only the 1st season of Downton Abbey, but I did like him in Sense & Sensibility, altho' I still prefer Hugh Grant's Edward in the Ang Lee/ Emma Thomson adaptation!

  4. Curiously, the flat screen TVs have resulted in injuries to small children - they try to climb over them and the TVs then topple over. It seems that a kid climbing or yanking on an unsecured flat-screen TV can pull it over and the TV then hits the kid as it falls. Apparently falling TVs account for just under half of the injuries to children due to falling furniture.

    The catch: if parents can't figure out how to tie down their TVs, how well are they going to do on keeping guns away from children?

  8. Don't un-mute the Newt... he is history and has only power as a has been. As for leadership in the Log Cabin Gop-heads is an oxymoron. The only thing they and Newt have in common... they are rich. Gays do not need either of them... and are better off that way.
    Log Cabin Gay's are Tea-baggers who should be listening to other gays and not hypocrites like Newt!

  9. @Jerry Pritikin: you've solved a mystery about LCR - they're too busy teabagging each other to do anything. Now can you figure out what's up with the GOProud.

    BTW - there was a great segment on Rachel Maddow about the Teaparty. She keep saying "teabag" and "teabagging". She managed to make it through with only a few problems - but her staff kept loosing it.
