    I was confused about the guy who talked about living in Minnesota and having a house with a view of Lake Michigan. He is going to need one big-ass telescope to accomplish that, since he will have to look across the entire state of Wisconsin. I can’t imagine shuttling between 3 homes. I would guess Lake Michigan house in summer (or some time between April and October) and winter in one of their southern homes. It also seems mean to make those poor dogs travel that much. I have a hard time believing that animals enjoy plane travel - especially the poor critter who gets stuck in the cargo hold. I guess I was the only one who didn’t like the DaNang couple. She seemed flaky and not too bright and I thought he was creepy. I hated the way he kept telling her she was “going to have to trust” him. I immediately question the motives of people who say that. And again with traveling with a dog. As much as I love/have loved my pets, if I wanted to travel extensively/frequently I think I would forgo having one.

    So, am I the only who thinks Loughlin and Giannulli will be in divorce court soon, as well as federal court?
  3. And cold medicine, like all intoxicants, has an immediate effect. Swallow a pill or down a shot of NyQuil and you will be loopy in 30 seconds.

    How in the world would you bet on skin color? Or did you mean just casual “I’ll bet the kid looks like...” and not official betting parlor bets?

    TV Tropes You Hate

    To add on to Anela’s post, the somewhat related “husband/wife dies and spouse discovers they had a secret life” storyline needs to go away. It seems like now it is more surprising when someone dies, no secret life is discovered and they stay dead. (TV and movie characters, I mean.)

    S09.E21: He kama na ka pueo (Offspring of an Owl)

    There is nothing cute about a cat being attacked by a dog. All the jokes that implied that a cat was a disposable creature were disgusting.

    Has William ever said how old he was when he fully grasped the fact that his future was basically set in stone? I remember reading something about Harry telling him (William) that he couldn’t be a fireman(?) because he had to be king, but don’t recall their ages, or if William really understood what that meant at that time.

    On Bali girl’s Airbnb page, one of the glowing reviews was written by a woman named Hollyn. Down the page it says “This is Kathryn’s place.” - “Hollyn helps host.”. Makes me wonder how many of the other reviews are legit.

    I don’t think I would go on tv and brag about all the businesses that I have started, with no mention of any of them still being in operation. Which leads most people, I would think, to conclude those businesses have tanked. Did Mrs. Can’tHoldAJob mention an employment plan of her own in Spain?

    House Hunters: Buying in the USA

    That second house in KC - the blue one - was ugly, ugly, ugly. I was sure that was what they bought. It was refreshing to finally hear someone talk about the downside to living near bars. Drunks getting tazered in your front yard - probably peeing there, too.

    S09.E.20: Ke ala o ka pū (Way of the Gun)

    The epi description said the gun had affected “all of their lives” - did I miss something? I saw the connection with Steve, Duke, Tani and Danny, but nothing with Lou, Junior, Adam, Noelani or Jerry. I don’t know what it is, but I find the actor who plays Steve’s dad to be creepy (or maybe he plays the character as creepy) and makes me not like Pops McGarrett.
  13. Was that the James Brolin one that was just on tonight (Thursday)? Good lord, that was horrible! Brolin’s character was every rural hayseed stereotype rolled in to one person. Not to mention he looked way too old to be Kelly’s father. The daughter ending up with the regular Joe rather than the royal dude - who didn’t see that coming? It was like they didn’t even try.

    Oh my! How will she get to the grocery store now? Maybe Andrew can drive her, he doesn’t seem terribly busy.

    I Need a Recipe!

    I don’t know if Amish butter is available in groceries everywhere - I live in W. Michigan - but it might be worth a try, or European butter. Both have a higher butterfat content.
