    Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

    Maybe A Duggar is actually buying the house, and "renting" it out to them. Michelle & Jim Bob could probably afford it easily, and are getting some sort of reciprocal work from the contractors, or somebody associated with the contractors. Probably everybody involved in the building & renovation businesses in that area are in bed together. Even the larger firms need smaller subcontractors. Yeah, ewwww......

    Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

    I'll never slam somebody for living in a low-cost residence, but I will be critical of them letting it become an indoor trash heap. Worn, a bit shabby but within your financial means is fine, and nothing to be ashamed of. But when it's also visibly filthy and cluttered, that's when my snotty self comes out. Photos of sticky tables, a food-encrusted stove, piles of dirty laundry on the floor show that stay-at-home mom Jill has drastically different priorities than most of her peers. And it's gross.

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    Exactly. Doubtful Jerm has been stealing from the collection plate, as he & Jing are a far cry from Jim & Tammy Faye. But there's no telling. I didn't think his parishoners were able to pony up big donations, and he hasn't been doing it long. Until they volunteer where their money comes from, it's all just speculation.

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    I think it's a hilarious site. I check out all kinds of VERY expensive, and way-beyond-my-wallet designer lines to see what's new & on trend. BFD that Jerm likes his accessories and his looks. He puts it all out there, he's not hiding anything from anybody. It's not as if his wife & child are going hungry, are dirty or clothed poorly. He takes care of his own. And he amuses me.
  5. I double-dog dare somebody to Photoshop Hobbit feet on those 2 and post them to Jessa's Instagram. Her head would explode.
  6. And you know she enjoys every minute of it. If she has another boy, they need to name him Foster. That way, all their blabbing and blathering about a Foster child won't be 100% lying bullshit.

    Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

    Not a single Duggar (That I know of) has ever expressed or demonstrated a shred of environmental mindfulness. With the exception of the few college-educated adjacents, they all seem to be ignorant of scientific principles and show zero interest in current world news and events. Though Jana does like to grow things that are pretty, and they have chickens for entertainment. Of course Jill's going to get slammed online for killing bees, because she's an idiot and doesn't know any better.

    Season 15: Speculation and Spoilers

    Yep, I love when they use European destinations. The Bachelor always gets mostly the tropical beach locales, but I prefer the European ones. Though Ben did get Switzerland for his finale. Emily had the best for me, with London, Croatia and Prague. So much to look at, and an awesome group of guys. Still love the Highland games in Dubrovnik. Her final location of Curacao was breathtaking though.
  9. Does anybody really think a single Duggar would EVER show up at their country health department for a free vaccination? Social media would get one whiff and probably be posting everywhere about "Those millionaires are too cheap to pay for their kids shots!" That would telegraph they're getting desperate about income. Free doughnuts and free drippy sundaes are just standard photo ops. Free shots and healthcare scream "Poor and Needy". They'd likely prefer to let their kids suffer.

    Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

    I think the whole story is bullshit. I think she's into creating "cute, mischevious scenarios" for her little "scamps" to get into that she can magically be right there to snap a pic of and immediately post online. Just like normal folks, y'all! Realistically, I can see her saying"Climb up Sam, and grab a cupcake and we'll take your picture", with Israel standing at the side and her saying "You can have the other one as soon as Sam gets his". I think her need for attention is strong enough to do that crap. YMMV.

    Mrs Wilson

    I thought the ending was brilliant, bringing in the 4th wife. (Not that it was a made-up plot device, but actually factual). Wasn't it just before that Alison was so triumphantly exclaiming into the phone "He loved us!" to her boys, as if to say "See, WE were the only ones that truly mattered because he stopped making more families after he had us". But he broke her heart yet again when Elizabeth & her boy showed up. Or did I get the sequence of events wrong?

    Mrs Wilson

    Authors back then made nowhere near the money they make now. All the books he had published went to support all the families, plus his own habits. And that probably came to very little income for him. And he was writing in the years of Steinbeck, Pearl Buck, Hemingway for the Americans and for the Brits, Agatha Chrristie, George Orwell, Virginia Woolfe, etc. The huge signing commissions weren't given to guys penning pop fiction and they didn't sell for top dollar. Today there are movie rights, TV rights, digital media rights and other sources of income for a big writer. No surprise all his money evaporated.

    I enjoyed it overall. I'm glad they didn't try to extend it any further into suppositions and conjecture. If the British government isn't going to let his files into public domain, then the family is the only other place to get info. And they seem to have all had a chance to contribute. Not much more to tell. So much just won't be known, and that's ok. I liked it for what it was.

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    I don't see anything about their claims to be relationship or parenting experts, either on her page or on the Grace Austin page. I agree they both look happy and relaxed. And I think the co-stripes are cute, as they aren't exact matches. My husband & I would sometimes coordinate parts of our outfits. Couples do that sometimes.

    So we see the dregs of some disgusting soup, and her naked children in the background. Seriously, what the fuck is wrong with this woman??

    Game Of Thrones In The Media

    Oh good lord, those were some of the ugliest dresses I've ever seen on some beautiful women. The only one I liked was Rose Leslie's one-shoulder red lace. Very striking & lovely. All the other women seemed to go for "edgy" . Gwen Christie's hair & makeup were nice, but that dress was hideous. Good thing they're all great performers, because their fashion taste is horrible. YMMV.
  18. That photo is posed in Felicity's bedroom, not in Jessa's mold house.

    I believe Deartick is going to do legal work for religious organizations just as much as I believe he & Jill will adopt.

    Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

    I'm not surprised he's doing fine in his classes. Isn't the first year of law school mostly memorizing the dull stuff before you get to the good stuff in years 2 & 3? He's learning HOW to do things legally, he's not crafting real arguments yet. And as he was the mascot in OK, he had to have good undergrad grades. As nerdy as those mascot type guys can be, they don't get those extra-curricular slots for being marginal. Having book smarts & making good grades doesn't mean he's not a disgusting, narrow-minded weirdo that looks ready to implode.

    S02.E19: Snowed In

    Seriously. How incredible could that dude have been? And she wanted to spend her last moments in life with an asshat who probably would have eventually treated her like crap? If he left her, then he was a tool. Idiots. I just don't get the Mina we're seeing now. She's got this whole "Austin is a GOD" mentality, (and has even said it outright), totally panicked when he wasn't right there beside her, him having to keep building her up for her to function. That kind of hero worship coming from her is so at odds with the tough, take-no-prisoners Mina in the first episodes. She's gone wuss compared to her attitude before he arrived. And they need to quit trying to make Raptor happen. I'm getting annoyed with all of them. Conrad's "I love you" to Nic sounded very tentative and questioning to me. As in "Are you about to dump me?". Her reply wasn't very convincing.

    That post was just the standard fundie lesbian-denial statement. She has to say something to "back up" her "unprovable" "previous relationships".

    16 days and we can resuscitate this thread! I'm about to re-watch last season so I'm thoroughly up to speed with where we left Harry when I plunge back in on the 19th. All the episodes are going to be dropped that Friday, right? So the weekend can be Harry-full! *LOL*

    Did anybody else notice the number of times royal blue, and all of it's tones were used throughout both episodes? Alison wore the color a lot, but so many rooms seemed to be painted blue, blue accessories, and paintings with a lot of blue. It really stood out to me.

    Everything should have belonged to Gladys, as she was the original wife with legitimate children and no legal divorce. They married in 1919, so every relationship after was just adultery and subsequent children were technically bastards. They never referred to him having a will or there being a reading. I imagine Brit law then was simple spousal survivorship. Everything was so quashed and buttoned down back then, the scandal would have humiliated all of them if it had been revealed. Absolutely! She was fabulously fierce.
