  1. After the chaos of the past week in the news, I was kind of grateful for her paying respect to Justice Stevens. What an amazing life he led, and I'm afraid it may be a long time before we see his like again. And he stayed sharp as a tack up to the end--I saw a print interview with him within the past couple of weeks. This morning on CNN they aired an interview he did recently with John Berman that was just wonderful--he saw so many changes to the world in his lifetime and you could tell Berman was enjoying himself very much. I know having to pull it together rattled Rachel a little but it was a little oasis of peace at the end of a crazy news day. And I think it was Lawrence who had Neil Katyal on who clerked for him--and he gave a lovely tribute as well.
  2. Ramona's house is very white. With lots of wine accessories in the kitchen.
  3. I read last night that they believe the man who killed her was a tenant in one of her rental properties and he was behind on paying his rent. The sad part was that it took days for someone to find her body--and someone called in a tip--so I'm not sure if the killer called them to go find her in the car trunk. She seemed like an amazing woman who had done so much in her life--it is terrible to see her life taken this way.

    Maybe they got it donated ---I did think it was touching that they named the baby (middle name) after Slade's son who was so ill---the one he had trouble supporting.

    A lot of the old shows are on their website---I watch using an Amazon Fire and they have Carol Duval, Matt and Sherri, Vern Yip---a lot of the old shows that they had years ago. I just have no interest in the Property Brothers because they don't really do the design work or remodels, so it's all fake and I don't care for much of Love it or List it---and I'm not that into the real estate shows like House Hunters so that accounts for like 90% of their schedule. It seems like I may have 1 or 2 shows like this one or Restored by the Fords, or Good Bones that I watch--and that is about it. If I have insomnia I can stream Fixer Upper and it seems to put me right to sleep, so that's useful.

    The woman covering her slot said today that this series will be 4 episodes so hopefully she'll be back after that. Kasie Hunt is 8 months along so hopefully Katie will be back when she has her baby.

    Thank you so much! I don't understand why HGTV schedules these new episodes so weirdly---and then ends endless rerun marathons.

    Katie Tur is coming back! I saw her post recently that she was in DC filming something with Jacob ---this must be it. I don't know when she will be back doing her regular show.
  10. Josh tweeted a link to this story---it's a weird one. https://ktla.com/2019/07/15/missing-huntington-beach-woman-who-vanished-near-inyo-county-campground-found-alive/

    I wonder if them doing all the homes in the same area helped them with filming---so that they could hire more crew and the named players could move from house to house as they filmed. I do think they probably had to do some extra organizing because of Mina's pregnancy to get all the episodes in. Also---on the HGTV site there is a new show coming with some of the hosts --Mina, Lee Ann Ford, Alison Victoria and the host of Hidden potential --I haven't watched that show for a long time so I don't know her work. It looks like they started filming this week. https://www.hgtv.com/shows/hgtv-news/there-s-a-new-competition-show-coming-to-hgtv-with-a-ton-of-girl Mina and Karen are also on the Brady Bunch House reno show that is coming later this summer. https://www.hgtv.com/shows/hgtv-news/brady-buzz--look-whos-talking-about-the-renovation- I don't know where they get all their energy!

    So.....latest house..... I felt like it had many layout issues and instead we spent most of the show discussing niches. 2 bedrooms on the main floor at the front of house--have to go all the way to the back to use the bathroom. A three bedroom house with only a counter and 3 stools for dining. They used the attic to add a closet and bathroom--but then left a small part of the attic unfinished. If these people have kids, they are not going to want to sleep upstairs and put the kid downstairs--I would have finished that space and it could be a small alcove for a crib or if no kids, a small office or tv space upstairs. Also no door to their bedroom --it is open to the stairs. I know it would cost more but I'd have bumped out the back and moved the kids/guest bedrooms to the back of the house and pushed the living room up to the front, add a dining table area then the kitchen. I know macrame is back --I see it all the time on design blogs, but that was not good macrame--it was kind of a mess, and I think the niches were so shallow as to be pointless--kind of an awkward spacing and depth. I'd have made them deeper so if I wanted to use them as book shelves I could. I did not mind the green cabinets although that green is not my favorite--I'd have done one with more of a grey-ed tone. With the color they used I feel like the grey appliances didn't help, and the butcher block should have been stained a warmer color or something---or maybe a warm white countertop and backsplash. So while each individual choice was not horrible I think if I went to look at this house there were so many disjointed things I would have trouble picturing how I'd live there. For homes I've moved to there has always been an instant feeling of "yes!" that lets me see my stuff and myself there. Also I thought when the fake buyer tour couple was there Mina said that there was a back deck and big back yard but did they even show that in the tour?
  13. I think dropping in the polls has made Bernie put in more of an effort to be likeable to more people. I also think he knows this is his last shot so he has to give it all he's got. I have seen him on several shows lately and he is making a sincere effort to be less cranky and to seem to be enjoying himself when he's in public.

    The second episode was better---in real life it took me a really long time after the 2000 election and then 9/11 to be able to watch much news and I think I've purposely repressed a lot of it so some of this is almost new to me. My favorite character is quickly becoming Judy, the assistant--she has almost no lines but she's always there, and the actress is kind of killing it with just being there observing what's happening.
