About Me

Female. Retired. Wife-Mom-Grandma. Approx. 30 years in broadcasting, at least 20 of those in news biz. Taurus. Loves chocolate - preferably without nuts or cocoanut. Animal lover. Rock-hound from pre-school age. Proud Democrat for life. Ardent environmentalist and pro-choicer. Hoping to use my skills set for the greater good. Still married to the same guy for 40+ years. Probably because he's a proud Democrat, too. Penmanship absolutely stinks, so I'm glad I'm a fast typist! I will always love Hillary and she will always be my President.

We have a little white harlequin cat with those eyes.

When the light catches them, at night, they flash green and red!

Btw - I also love the llama - with the Trump hair!!!


Now that would not surprise me. He does like his exotics. And I bet he'd want another blonde.

You nasty woman! Me, TOO!!!

We voted by mail a week-and-a-half ago.

THREE votes for Hillary, because our boy left his all filled out, signed, and stamped before he and the band left on tour. So that's one nasty woman and two bad hombres!

WOW, kpete! GREAT find!

I'm so stealing this! Hello, Facebook!

That's FANTASTIC, Tommy!

For both you AND your girls!

I wish I'd made a note of the male politician who was on one of the MSNBC morning shows awhile back, who was talking about his little girl. They were at the breakfast table one morning, and she had one of those plastic kiddie placemats - like the ones that have the map of the US, the map of the world, various dinosaurs, birds, boats and cars, all that stuff. My kids had those. There's also one of the Presidents. My kids had that one, too!

But this fellow on the panel was talking about his daughter, and how she had that "Meet the Presidents" placemat. And he recounted how she looked up at him that morning and asked - "Daddy, why aren't there any girls on there?" And he said that REALLY hit him, hard, and made him think. And he confessed to a whole new appreciation of the importance of THIS election, with THIS candidate, and what THIS candidate MEANS to ALL of America, including a whole new horizon opening up for his daughter - and all our daughters (and sons - my husband always reminds me not to leave our sons out, because this new era of female leadership WILL help them, too)!

Yeah, I think you're spot on, and, unfortunately, particularly with #6.

I think she'll soon find herself on the way out.

When I saw, earlier this year, that she's 46, I said "uh-oh!" Forty-six? OY! She's in trouble! Fast approaching her sell-by date. Hope she got SOMETHING in the prenup... (Or Laura Wasser as divorce lawyer.)

I do expect that sometime after next year, assuming he loses, he'll find the need to trade the old model in for a fresh new blonde who's much younger (but just a hair older than Ivanka - after all, he did promise his daughter he wouldn't get with any woman her age or younger).

Wasn't he teamed up with Howard Cosell?

Here - I'll show my age too!

As a matter of fact, as I recall, Howard Cosell sort of "named" SNL.

I think it was ABC that put him on, late on Saturday nights, in a new series that fall, called "Saturday Night Live with Howard Cosell." And His Hilarious Bombastic-ness served as host for a kind of variety show for late-night, after the prime time lineup and the local news ended.

That same season, NBC introduced a new comedy revue show that, as I recall, was named "NBC's Saturday Night." With these crazy people who called themselves "The Not Ready for Prime Time Players," many of whom came out of Chicago's renowned comedy troupe "Second City." And there were different guest hosts every time, like George Carlin (who I think was the premiere night's host), Steve Martin, Robert Klein, and other faves. Some young long-haired dude named Lorne Michaels was running the show.

As the season wore on, NBC's show took off like a rocket. ABC's offering floundered and was eventually canceled, I think, by or before the end of season one. But somehow, its name took hold. People started referring to the NBC version as "Saturday Night Live." They'd already started getting that title thing mixed up while both shows were still on, opposite each other. I remember having to correct people, especially since, by then, I worked at NBC and when we were all in New York the first year of our assignments on our new news network, we worked at 30 Rock, just like the SNL crowd did, and often you'd find yourself riding up in the elevator with one of them after visiting the commissary downstairs.

Just a little tidbit from a long-ago time... (bet I'm older than you, MyOwnPeace! LOL)

Welcome to DU, martigras!

I saw something in one of the magazines comparing a few Ivanka items to the more expensive haut couture stuff. It seems a lot of her stuff is less-expensive knock-offs of pricier designer labels. Anybody remember during the CONvention, after she'd introduced her dad, evidently her website featured a photo of her at the podium, taken from the side. The caption read something like "Shop Ivana's look from the Republican Convention!"

I thought it was pretty doggone tacky. Gee, she's out there trying to exploit her daddy's political adventurism to make a buck. And then I thought - "hmm... sounds pretty typical. Why am I not surprised?"

I wonder if she made any sales?

Welcome to DU, Willie Pep!

Your post is a SUPERB reminder of how we need to keep our eyes on the ball IN THE NEXT TWO ELECTION CYCLES! In 2018 and 2020. We need to set ourselves up for the next census-taking. We need a MAXIMUM number of Democrats in the governors' mansions in as many states as possible by then. Every zero-year, the census is taken. And that's what guides the reapportionment of Congressional representation, for which the states redraw their Congressional districts. If a CON is in charge, they'll create the most ridiculous, outlandish, and thoroughly UN-representative districts imaginable, to enhance fellow GOPers' chances of getting into office or retaining power.

That's a chronic pain Democrats need to overcome.

Steve Goodman had another great song along those lines.

"A Dying Cubs Fan's Last Request." Epic stuff!

This Dodger fan is delighted about the Cubs! I hope they go all the way!
