Is anyone here good at Hogan's Heroes trivia?

Can you tell me the name of the pub/eatery in Hammelburg which was occasionally shown when Hogan or someone else slipped out in disguise or when some of the others went out for a "night on the town"?

Having a friendly family dispute here.

Thank you in advance!

How many of you know this artist?

Yesterday I went to see an exhibition of paintings by John Mellencamp. The one and same John Mellencamp, rock n roll musician who hails from Seymour, Indiana. Did many of you know he is quite an accomplished artist as well as a musician? They're showing his paintings right now at the Butler Museum of American Art, a jewel of an art museum in none other than Youngstown, Ohio.

Remembering my art history from college -- the heavy brush strokes, favoring portraits of common everyday people, many of them downtrodden .... many of them heroes of social justice movements -- the spellbinding imagery and flashes of color -- his paintings expressed to me many of the emotionally based applications brought forth by German Expressionism, Fauvism and Abstract Expressionism.

From Artnews:

"The musician and artist John Mellencamp stumbled into his first record deal while traveling to New York City from his home state of Indiana in search of an art school to attend. It was the mid-1970s, and the future star, who at various points in his long career has also been known as Johnny Cougar, John Cougar, and John Cougar Mellencamp, had just graduated from Vincennes University, a small two-year college in Indiana. “I figured while I was in New York, I might as well see if I can get anything going on [the music] end,” Mellencamp, who spent his teenage years playing in bar bands, recently told me over the phone. “And, as it turns out, at 20 years old, 21 years old, New York Art Students League wanted me to pay them money, and the record companies wanted to give me money.”

Nevertheless, Mellencamp, who initially came to art through his mother (who was a painter), kept making art in his spare time, and became more serious about it starting in the late 1980s."

Here's a site that shows a few of his works.

What's the best meal for a cold, overcast, damp day?

I vote for a bowl of chili.

While getting a haircut this morning

As I sat in the chair at the hair salon ... me, my stylist, the woman in the next chair, and the other stylist, had quite an animated and loud discussion about the horrid idiot in the White House and how the Republicans are destroying our country. It was great.

The older woman on the other side of the counter surely must have heard our discussion, but she remained tight lipped and quiet as a mouse. Maybe she felt outnumbered?

Is there a pharmaceutical shortage now?

My husband and I tried to obtain a shingles shot as per doctor's orders today, and was told there's a nationwide shortage of them. The pharmacist said they only get a few in per week and there's a waiting list of about a hundred people.

At the same store, I noticed there was a sign on the shelves by the Advil announcing that there's a nationwide shortage of Advil. I saw about half the usual number of boxes of Advil on the shelves.

What's going on???

Trump's response to this question just floored me

In Erie last night, a local reporter asked Dummy about the deep divisions in this country.

He replied that the Kavanaugh debacle has united the country! I kid you not!

How can this total loon be any more delusional. What an appalling total disgrace this ignoramus is.

https://www.wkbn.com/news/pennsylvania/local-reporter-in-erie-asks-president-trump-question-on-minds-of-many/1515733367

"While the President admits to ongoing divides racially and economically, he also says he finds a silver lining on unity in one of the most unlikely and bitter of places - the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

“The battle has been won, and very rightly won, but that battle has been won. I really see a lot of people coming together and saying we don’t want to see that happen again. Democrats have come to me and said we don’t want to have that happen again,” Trump said."

*****well he's right about one thing .... Democrats don't want to see this EVER happen again!!!!
