*LIVE* All in the Family & The Jefferson's starting NOW. ABC.

Norman Lear and Jimmy Kimmel.

Seriously. Just STOP IT already. Star Wars so don't read if you don't want to know

Come on. Enough already.

We talk about movie magic, but sometimes the magic's real. The Rise of Skywalker will focus on the new generation of Star Wars heroes, but Carrie Fisher, who died in 2016, will once again make an appearance as General (formerly Princess) Leia Organa.

Vanity Fair shared the news on Monday that Leia will share scenes with Resistance fighter Lieutenant Connix, played by Fisher's daughter Billie Lourd. Lourd appeared in the role in The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi. The Vanity Fair feature also includes a new batch of images from the film that gives a first look at the new characters.


Who's ready for some COOCH? Cuccinelli at Homeland Security

I heard this on the radio on the way to work. Morning talk radio host (who has some serious experience in actual politics) was discussing this with a professor from Mary Washington.

Apparently even Mitch McConnell hates The COOCH. He been very open about that. As the professor pointed out, The COOCH has absolutely no experience in this area and would walk in with knives already drawn for him. They both agreed he’d have better luck in a “Czar” appointment type situation in which he could be Trump’s “muscle” on Capital Hill regarding immigration rather than head of DHS.

Trump expected to pick Ken Cuccinelli for top DHS role

President Donald Trump is expected to pick Ken Cuccinelli for a top job at the Department of Homeland Security.

More fun in house shopping 😳😆 need some plumbing expertise

Homemade/engineered bidets.
3 of them. One in every bathroom. Not sure if that thing (it’s not a microphone) is for pressure or ???
Our agent had never seen THIS before.

People in glass houses....check out this place

This is more than a bit out of our price and comfort zone. 😳

As I scrolled through the pics I wasn’t sure if this was a house or a building on a college campus.


Weight. WHAT!?! The kilogram has changed

Out with the old kilogram, in with the new -- scientists introduce more accurate measure

The new definition is based on the Planck constant -- a physical constant observed in the natural world -- rather than the precise weight of a piece of metal kept under lock and key.

For more than 100 years Paris has been home to Le Grand K -- or the International Prototype Kilogram, as it is officially known -- a block of metal that previously defined the weight of a kilogram.

The reason for the change to the International System of Measurement (SI) units was that over time the prototype lost atoms and therefore mass because it is "susceptible to damage and environmental factors," according to the National Physical Laboratory (NPL), which houses Kilo 18, Britain's copy of Le Grand K.

Le Grand K was compared with the various copies only once every 40 years, which made the calibration potentially inaccurate. Though the change in mass is roughly equivalent to the weight of an eyelash, the repercussions could be severe.


White Fudge. Limited Edition. 😆

😁 Friday Night .....MEMES 😳 it starts our wordy but ends up...

***notice the placement of the hat***

The Long Ryders "ivory towers" let's start there

800 827 1000. Called the VA today about loan eligibility

Welcome to the Veterans Affairs telephone assistance service. For the assistance via the internet please visit www.va.gov.
If you are having thoughts of suicide press 7 now to be connected with the Veterans Crisis line or call 800-273-8255 and then Press 1.

Look it's great that they have that as the top of the phone tree but it's also sad.

Work: everyday I come here and everyday those people bother me

I was not sure how to lead this off so I went with that. I say it at work all the time, with a smile.

So yesterday we got a call from our landlord/real estate company that manages this property (Berkshire Hathaway), the owner is selling the house. We have 60 days.

Yes we rent. A ridiculously low $1,200 a month for 1,500 square foot trilevel home. 3 bedrooms (one is a "craft room" suburbian to the nth degree. Great schools - my daughter is locked into a high school program after she got accepted (yes we can apply to high schools here). And so forth.

I've shared a lot here on DU over the years but this is a bit strange for me. Apparently WE'RE BUYING A HOUSE. Like real quick. I've never owned a home, never really wanted to. So I guess part of this is any tips you all can offer. I am eligible for a VA loan and our income should allow for a nice place. I get the feeling we are going to an even whiter place.

My wife and I, since last night, have had several "it's going to be okay" deep breath moments. My main concern at this point is packing. I moved so many times when I was a kid you'd think my mother was in the carnival. My wife on the other hand has every gravy boat her great grandmother ever cast a shadow upon. Plus, she's a "prepper", we have about 6 months of food in this place.

So....here we go. Out into real life.... I guess. Sorry just needed to vent before I go to work.
