  1. Never thought people would be talking about Whit Squall, I knew the gentleman (Chuck Gieg) played by Scott Wolf. I lived in Natucket in the late 80s early 90s and he was an IT type guy. I remember him talking about the filming.
  2. This can be regular protocol in the US when entering a military base. Sometimes it's random, sometimes they "know" something, sometimes there was an incident elsewhere and sometimes just because. I work at a Nuclear Submarine Base and have been subjected to it more times than I can count.
  3. I believe Mr Walsh is only 5-6 years older than Andrea Z.
  4. I gave a ride to a wonderful through hiker today. I find the AT through hikers quite fascinating. Don't think I will ever be giving Mila a ride.
  5. In regards to Russ and a job, why not work remote? I lived in oil field land and plenty of folks worked 2 on and 2 off or 3 and 2. He could get a job in the Gulf or Alaska. She could live in Miami and have fun while he's gone. You have to have a certain personality and relationship to survive that type of job and now that they have a baby it wouldn't be easy but it would be an option to get back in the industry and stay in Miami.
  6. Yes I noticed that same "look" on some of the young women that were escaping. They all have that same look Robin has. They did an AUB, an FLDS and a Kingston Clan escape on the show (Escaping Polygamy) today.
  7. So I am home from work sick and watching Escaping Polygamy. I have watched maybe 5 or 6 episodes and the dark haired woman that helps with the escapes just has to be somehow related to Robyn, there is quite a resemblance. The woman on the show is prettier IMO. They just rescues a young girl from FLDS but the episode before the grabbed an entire AUB family, father, two moms and 8 kids. The father has been part of the AUB militia/security, it was a bit sketchy for a bit but they got out. I think they planned to remain as a family group but he made the decision so that his children would not be forced into the lifestyle. I have to say one positive thing about the Browns is that they don't seem to be part of a cult like lifestyle and their kids seem free to do as they choose.
  8. I was diagnosed at about 22 with PCOS, metabolic syndrome and Type 2 diabetes. I didn't get my first menstrual cycle until 16 and it was never regular until 30 or so, I have off an on cysts. I am on metformin and have my diabetes under control (A1C 5.9). I struggle with weight loss, from 16-21 years old or so I gained about 40lbs. From 162 to 204, I am 5' 8" and probably considered big boned. All the weight is in my stomach. I recently lost 15lbs but that is a pretty strict no sugar, no fake sugar (causes same insulin response as the real thing), no rice or pasta and lots of chicken and veggies. I have really not been over 204 since I was 22 and I am 52. I am pretty active, I garden, do yoga, hike 5 miles or so a day and bike ride fo fun. Nothing serious but I try. I have worked to stay where I am at, I can't say why some gain or some don't. I do carefully watch calories and I am generally under 1600, I am a chef so it makes cooking and counting a bit easier. I need to again eliminate fake sugar and I need to do it for good. Just my story... One anecdote I do have is when I was struggling with low blood sugar the nurse at my endocrinologist asked for my meal sheet (what I eat each week) she commented that I eat an awful lot of salad and said she hated salad, How do you end up hating salad? I try to make lunch or dinner salad so I get my veggies in, I'm not fond of the cooked kind.
  9. I actually do know how to use the quote function and have no idea why it says you are the author...sorry about that @athousandclowns...need to give credit where it is due.
  10. I am sure his wedding ring no longer fits on his chubby finger. The hair really feminized him.
  11. I have a female friend who is a medically retired police officer at 41 yo. A 400lb plus woman fell on her while being loaded into an ambulance and just like that her career was over. Sucks, she still suffers chronic back pain, her pelvis was crushed.
  12. This is so pathetic for someone who claims to be an author. She really needs a proof reader for her Instagram posts.
  13. Has Jazz changed her gender legally? The reason I ask is that she was mentioning all the things she gets/has to do at 18, I was wondering if she has to register with Selective Service?
  14. I really hate that she ate at Moose's Tooth and I miss that place so much. She better not mention having a Kaladi Latte, that would really get me. Think I am heading up to AK in August, I miss all this. I will hike Winner Creek just because.
  15. Thank you so much. I have no children of my own and am very close to each and every one of my ten nieces and nephews. I will nominate his same aged cousin, John (Sr High school) for best cousin ever, John's GF is good friends with the nephew in question and the cousins are close but different schools. John's GF told him what was going on and John wanted to support him. John stopped by the house to take him out for burgers but the nephew in question wasn't home John came back around 10pm and took him for ice cream. I don't know what was discussed but I know John was sympathetic and supportive and left my nephew in good spirits. I am so very proud of my nephews. I do love the fact that his older 20 year old brother comment when his mom told him about the nephew in question's partner. The 20 year old shrugged his shoulder and said "he seems nice enough, if he likes him he likes him"....bragging on my good kids.
