  1. There should be some way to select "All Of The Above" for the “Shawn’s Very, Very, Bad Hair Day” category. She doesn't discriminate - EVERY day is a Bad Hair Day. How do we decide ???
  2. OMG, I'd be afraid to sit on those chairs! That 225-pound capacity shown on the website sounds more than a little optimistic.
  3. You're a wicked woman, you know. There isn't enough brain bleach on this PLANET to wash that picture out of my mind. And that pattern placement...
  4. (Sorry if this has been mentioned, I'm still catching up after having to switch to a different browser after the upgrade.) Tolkien seems to have liked the name. http://tolkiengateway.net/wiki/Bagshot_Row "Bagshot Row was the row of Hobbit-holes that were delved into Hobbiton Hill beneath Bag End. The Gamgee Family lived at Number 3, Bagshot Row. Their neighbour was Daddy Twofoot. The dwellings had gardens and earthwalls made of the earth removed during the excavation of Bag End..."
  5. Guess I don't have the last CRT TV in existence after all. The off-white-everything doesn't appeal to me either, but I like a house that looks lived in, and this one definitely does. Thanks for keeping it real, Mr Pesci.
  6. A bit late in Replying, but ... Considering the hatchet job that PJ did on poor Faramir, maybe it's a Good Thing that he left Glorfy out of the films completely. NEVER diss a Lord of Gondolin (Salgant excepted). And will someone PLEASE explain the difference to Stephen between the pronunciation of "Gollum" (soft "o" like "on") and a "Golem" (long "o" like Goat) which Wikipedia describes as "In Jewish folklore, a golem (/ˈɡoʊləm/ GOH-ləm; Hebrew: גולם‎) is an animated anthropomorphic being that is created entirely from inanimate matter". The films' adherence to Tolkien's vision
  7. CNN showed a stunning commercial earlier this evening for Omega Co-Axial watch movements that just blew me away. Turns out the ad was first released in 2013 but I don't remember seeing it before. This is definitely one of those "turn UP the volume" ads. Not only does it have great visuals, but the music is gorgeous. It's listed as "Smiling" by Harry Gregson-Williams from a 2004 Denzel Washington action film "Man On Fire" but it doesn't sound like any action film score I've ever heard. It reminded me very much of the "Shire" themes from Howard Shore's Lord Of The Rings score. T
  8. First snow of the season in the Chicago area! But it's melting as soon as it hits the ground. Guess I can put the sandals away for a few months.
  9. Especially that hair! Are all the salons in PA completely shut down? She can't bribe a stylist to come to her house, lop 3 or 4 inches off and give it a good conditioning? We had 6 months here in IL when salons were closed and mine didn't look anything like that before they finally reopened, and our cuts are pretty similar. It looks like a Phyllis Diller wig. https://www.thedailybeast.com/phyllis-dillers-wackiest-dos On second thought, Phyllis looks better.
  10. Thanks for the recipe! I don't know if this was mentioned farther along (I'm behind on my reading), but there should be 1 tablespoon of soy sauce in there too. I found the .pdf file for the recipes, hope the link works: Simple Wonton Soup (recipe) for potstickers - QVC: https://www.qvc.com/footers/cd/pdf/M57228_RecipeCard.pdf
  11. I know exactly how you feel. For the first time in the last 6 months, my regular grocery store had bottles of 70 percent isopropyl alcohol! I almost did a Happy Dance right in the aisle. Every time I shop there I always go way back in the corner by the prescription counter just hoping against hope that those empty 12 inches on the bottom shelf under the Band-Aids will actually have something in them, and for the first time since our Gov shut down the state in March, THEY DID!!! I exercised all my self control and only bought 2 bottles at $1.99 each, but it felt as if I'd struck gol
  12. That's probably what Mei Xiang at the National Zoo said.
  13. Hey Skunky! The '60s called, they want their hairstyle back! With that color, it looks like she's "of an age" to remember the '60s first-hand too. She looks like she has even more gray hair than I do. I can't wait to see what that looks like once the roots start showing, they should take about another 10 days to reach full bloom. Wonder what's giving it that poof? If it's ratted underneath, that should do wonders for her already abused hair. Overbleached and ratted on top of "unwashed for a week" is never a good combination. Another classic look from the Q's Style Expert.
  14. Geico's commercials are probably some of the best on TV, and since I love to see actors making fun of their images, this one with John Stamos is my new favorite. I love the hair stroking at the end.
  15. I only check the posts here about once every week, so not only did I miss the chance to vote by about half a day, but I can only see the poll winners. The original full list of candidates is blocked with "You do not have permission to vote in this poll, or see the poll results." WAAAAAAHHHH !!!! I hope the next one will be open for viewing and voting for just a few days longer? Please? Booney, thanks for all your hard work, the photos of the winners are truly... stunning. And deserving of the honor they earned.
