Who's going to enforce compliance?

Just asking because these are Republicans who have ignored court orders before.

I do not trust these treasonous assholes at all.

neosporin put me in ER

I was in anaphylactic shock & swelling badly & looking so weird that people were staring as I was wheeled back into an examining room. They had to IV'd me to get it stopped.

One of the weirdest things that has ever happened to me in my life. Trust me, I have a doozie of a list of things.

And when you have these monster ⛽ guzzlers

...now turning to EV power & SELLING OUT, there IS indeed a movement.

Exactly! TY!

Going back, shouldn't Robert E. Lee & Jefferson Davis have been tried for treason? And what about the 2 Bush wars, BOTH of which were predicated on lies?

It's always the same mindset, even tho they changed the name of their party.

Sorry to ruin the mood but truth must be told...

Gene Kelly insulted Debbie Reynolds for not being able to dance. Fred Astaire, who was hanging around the studio, found her crying under a piano and helped her with her dancing.

Only 19 when cast to play the film, Debbie Reynolds lived with her parents and commuted to the set. She had to wake up at 4:00 a.m. and ride three different buses to the studio; sometimes, to avoid the commute, she would just sleep on the set.

For the "Make Em Laugh" number, Gene Kelly asked Donald O'Connor to revive a trick he had done as a young dancer, running up a wall and completing a somersault. The number was so physically taxing that O'Connor, who smoked four packs of cigarettes a day at the time, went to bed (or may have been hospitalized, depending on the source) for a week after its completion, suffering from exhaustion and painful carpet burns. Unfortunately, an accident ruined all of the initial footage, so after a brief rest, O'Connor--ever the professional--agreed to do the difficult number all over again.


Even knowing this truth about Gene Kelly has not spoiled the clip of him singing "Singing in the Rain" while dancing down the street with the umbrella. It's one of my all time favorite pick-me-up tunes. So happy & well done. 💕

What would a terminal cancer patient have to lose?

Thanks for posting this info! 🙏

Bookmarked & emailed the thread to myself. As they say, one never knows.

And yes, ma'am, things aren't too bad here in the 'Burg if we ignore that rw asshole neighbor 2 doors down with his big, custom-made, wood-carved tRump sign. I kid you not. The night before our moving trucks pull out of our neighborhood, I intend to take a big bottle of bleach and pour a big KKK on the grass of his manicured lawn. That's the least I can do.

That s.o.b. poisoned our last dog! No definitive proof, but we knew it was him. She had to spend a couple of nights at the Vets (costing $1K) to save her.

Wow! Most interesting. Another link...

Diagnosed with terminal lung cancer, Joe was told he had about 3 months to live. A veterinarian friend of his in western Oklahoma called him and told him about a cancer research experiment he had learned about in which a dog-deworming medicine had cured cancer in the experimental mice… and when the researcher developed cancer, she used the same medicine on herself and her glioblastoma was gone in about 12 weeks.

With nothing to lose and everything to gain, Joe ordered the veterinary product, Fenbendazole, and began taking it. He added a few other things to his regimen such as curcumin and Vitamin E, now known as the “Joe Tippens Protocol”. Three and a half months later, he went in for a scan and he was totally clear.

Chinese markets again. 😤

Why do they eat things the rest of the world knows is not a good thing to do?
Little empathy for other lifeforms? (No, I'm not a total vegetarian but I do limit my protein menu & it's not based on my childhood conditioning.)

Bats, Pangolins, Vaquita swim bladders, DOGS!!! 😠😠😠

Thank you so much for posting this.

Whales, like elephants, are among the most special animals on the planet. Yet they and their habitat are being destroyed by heartless humans.

Their beautifully haunting song in the video put a lump in my throat.

I need to make another donation to the Sea Shepherd.
