    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    He seems very family oriented. He’s married with a young daughter. He seems to enjoy what he does. How many of us can say that? I know nothing about gambling but obviously he’s successful enough to earn a living and support his family. He’s not a blight on society, and his personal life is just that- personal. If he cures world hunger then good for him. In the meantime, I’m enjoying his strategy and gutsy moves.

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    Why blame James that he is winning? Why not blame the others who are slower to comprehend the question, slower to ring in, less daring to wager big, and have a smaller scope of knowledge ? These games are unlike anything ever seen on Jeopardy and I’ve been watching for years. And, for those throwing shade on his occupation, I would imagine it takes a great deal of skill and time to calculate the odds of a team winning. Last I heard, it is a legal profession. This is not a popular opinion, but I’m enjoying his games a heck of a lot more than those with smug Ken Jennings, and if Jennings gets the host job, that’s when I stop watching.

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    If you zoom in, unfortunately you can see that the brown is his blubbery belly along with his belly button.

    Joe & Kendra: Looking Forward To Side Hugs

    JB is probably jumping for joy. Keep those kids pregnant and the show goes on forever. That’s all they do. That is their whole life. Screwing for Jesus.( sorry for the blasphemy) First Jessa, now Kendra, then Joy, Lauren ,Abby and then Jinger., and they start all over again. Who know what’s happening with Jill and if Anna will add to her brood, but it doesn’t matter, JB’s got more kids growing up ready to take their place. This shitshow will never end.

    The Lonely Js Club: Jana, Jedidiah, Jeremiah and Jason

    The model on the website doesn’t look much better in the dress than Jana.Her side view is very unflattering. I can’t imagine that any Duggar hand washes anything much less a dress. It will probably go in the machine with everyone else’s clothes and come out with the skirt unraveled. If you zoom in on the skirt, she did cut it. You can see the raw edges, and the model’s dress has a hem. Maybe, one day they’ll get a clue. Not today.

    Joe & Kendra: Looking Forward To Side Hugs

    As a little kid I saw the back of Eisenhower’s head as he rode in a limo, also in NJ. The Kennedys, IMO had personality and charm which made them appealing to the masses, unlike the Duggars, who can’t spit out a cohesive sentence.

    Thanks for posting the info on the articles. They were most informative. I had wondered about Daphne, Alec’s only daughter. At her age, I don’t blame her for wanting privacy. It’s heartwarming to see that they’ve all met and get along so well. I’m sure their get-togethers never lack interesting conversation about that skeleton in their closet.

    Except the Kennedy brothers all had great hair. The Duggar boys,not so much.

    The money was what made no sense. How were they able to afford the house? It must had been paid for because when it was sold Alison told her sons that the proceeds would be divided between the two of them to “ get a good start” Alex was working in Intelligence when he met Alison. Didn’t he get paid? They lived in one dump after another. He had taught in India for 14 yrs. and written over 20 spy novels. Where was the money? When did it get better so they could buy the house? Did Alison’s mother die? Dorothy said Alex only sent her money once, then the bombshell at the end, another needy woman, with a son, looking for her husband. I don’t know if there really was a Coleman, but it does sound like Alex did have a handler who wanted Alison to stop digging. Why did they watch him all those years? The spy game is dangerous, if he were such a loose cannon they could have just eliminated him. If he was so deep under cover that these women were unknowingly part of the game, it was terribly cruel thing for them to be a part of a charade. If he were a liar,cheat, thief,just for the thrill it gave him, then he was a despicable,evil man. It was nice to see that the families met and are quite friendly. Many of them have had accomplished careers. The lies of Alex Wilson have touched many lives, maybe even more than we know.

    According to Wiki, he had 2 sons and a daughter with Gladys, 1 son with Dorothy and 2 sons with Alison. I imagine to condense the story they haven't mentioned the other children. I think in 1963, Alison would have been looked down upon even though it wasn’t her fault. After all, the only legitimate children were the ones with Gladys. The other boys were considered bastards. I would imagine that’s part of why she wants to keep the secret. Can’t wait for the finale tonight.
  12. Thanks, I didn’t realize that. How could it get so dirty in a baby’s room? There are only 3 people in that house. Maybe, it was used when they got it. Hope they’re not bringing it to Ca. It needs to be cleaned or tossed. Ma Duggar may have taught her girls to keep sweet and be joyfully available but apparently she didn’t teach them anything else.
  13. Gee, when I paint a room I also wash the windows, curtains/ blinds, bedding and shampoo the carpet. With Ben’s allergies and the boys crawling around, that rug needs to be cleaned or thrown out.

    She was very firm with Dennis that she wanted no contact with her boys. I wonder how she is going to support herself, now. He was always short on money. Dorothy even said she had only received money once and the son was already grown. After the war, something went on that he was disgraced, Coleman (was that her name?)knows more than she’s telling, and why did Alison call her before anyone else when he died? He really was a deceitful person. With Alison, there were red flags all over the place, but she never questioned him. There are more articles on line, but don’t read them if you want to be surprised. There’s more to come. The BBC has some great programs, and this is a double treat, it comes on right after Call the Midwife, my fav.
