  1. From what our police (and sheriff and other law enforcement agencies) tell us periodically, most of those are not actual police officer associations and the money probably doesn't go to any actual police officers. Ours don't solicit by phone, anyway, and the national Fraternal Order of the Police says it doesn't, although some state or local chapters may.
  2. I got very little that I intended to get done today. We did Wreaths Across America at the local cemetery this morning (us and two of the Cub Scouts in our den) and then intended to do laundry and dishes and clear a spot for the Christmas tree and put up the Christmas tree. I do have a second load of laundry in the washer, but the rest didn't happen. Instead, we went shopping for Christmas presents.
  3. But in the 70s, most families probably had someone who had served in the military in WWII, Korea, Vietnam or just in the military between wars, even if only in the National Guard or Reserves. They didn't necessarily serve overseas in battle, but there was probably someone.
  4. It might be, but at one time, the military service was probably true for most of the viewers as well.
  5. I don't think it's a ripoff of the Hallmark brand any more than the Hallmark brand and all romance novels are ripoffs of Harlequins.
  6. It makes more sense in the books (I think -- it's been a while since I read that one).
  7. I finally watched The Godfather a few years ago. All the way through, I kept saying, "Oh! That's where The Simpsons got that!"
  8. I've read all the books (I think -- I may have missed one that the library didn't have) and am in the middle of the series. I'd have watched all of them by now, but life got in the way. Some of the changes threw me at first, but so far I think I'm OK with them. I'm only on episode 6, though, so there might be some still coming that I won't like. So far the changes seem to be things that help introduce characters in a way that cuts out too much exposition.
  9. I haven't been, @Bastet. This morning was a club fundraiser, and tonight is a school fundraiser. In between is either laundry, Project Runway or Virgin River (on Netflix). I think laundry is going to lose. Also, I'm not allowed to pay attention. When I pay attention, OU plays worse. My husband wants to know why I can't use my powers for good.
  10. I haven't seen it, but the description didn't sound that bad to me. Elitist, yeah, because you're right. That's the brand. I mean, regular people aren't buying these things. It's like saying a Mercedes commercial is elitist.
  11. We also watched the Iron Bowl for the same reason. It was a very exciting game.
  12. That's the only one I know, and it's the one we watched, but we are in Oklahoma. I'm not used to people elsewhere caring.
  13. Out of curiosity, what game do you call Bedlam?
