    Just threw some turkey pieces in a bowl, added some small-cut broccoli florets, minced onion and olive oil! Soooo good!

    Weird stuff happening on Facebook. I see this stupid post about Medicare for everybody by The People For Bernie Sanders so I click on the feedback button to get rid of it. This prompts one option of unliking the People for The Idiot. WTH? I never liked this group, but it shows I liked them and I’m following them.

    Dear Facebook: you’re not going to convert me. I reported it as fake news.

    Morning All!
    Hope evryone had a peaceful and joy filled Thanksgiving.
    Today’s Painting is one of my favorites, and I’m not sure why. It is “Morning – Catskill Valley” by George Innes

    and this is in honor of all those who cook huge meals for the day, I say Thank You! Hope your feet don’t hurt too much πŸ˜‰

      And oh, I love the magazine cover. That’ll be me after Christmas. Maybe not as bad this year. With the whole family dieting so successfully it isn’t likely I’ll be making the hundreds of cookies and ovens full of chex mix that I usually do, but Christmas dinner will be a big one.

        The whole family dieting! That’s a good idea, but would never happen in my family. Christmas plans sound yummy!
        Glad you enjoy the magazine covers πŸ˜‰ Each one tells a story in one page.
        Have a great day!

    So, I “clean up” some of the nice images I find on the internet & post them here. It is just awful that such nice art would be lost. It has turned into a bit of a hobby. Does anyone know of a company that wouild pay me to restore digital art? I tried looking for one, but all I found was a company in Calif. restoring old films, which I like to watch and would also do repair, but you need special software and to know how to use it. Below is an image I was going to post today, and I decided to post the “before” as well for an example. This was not as dirty or torn as some I have done, but the wrinkles sometimes are a real pain to fix.

      Very nice work TOG&C, I’m of no help with “Does anyone know of a company that would pay me to restore digital art?

      But keeping samples of your work in a portfolio is certainly a good first step πŸ™‚ .

    For the Little guy here is the Gloria, the 3 masted barque training ship & official flagship of the Colombian Navy.

    Here are Tall Ships at Fleet Week sailing on the Hudson River. I think that is the Gloria on the left.

    If he likes art, maritime painters make BIG bucks painting faithful reproductions of the nicer sailing ships. The ones who own the ships are the super wealthy or governments, and they have the money to pay. πŸ˜‰

    BTW – My 2 brothers and DH are super high IQ, and 1 brother & DH got in trouble in school from boredom. My other brother was physically well coordinated, and truly hyperactive, and somehow he managed to stay concentrating in class, but back then you ran around 2x/day at recess.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

    Prayer for Justice Kavanaugh:
    “After watching her husband rip into pro-death senators who used Dr. Christine Blasey Ford in attempts to derail the appointment of her husband to the U.S. Supreme Court, Ashley is asking all people of faith to unite in praying Psalm 40, which reads:”


    In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen

    Could someone post the 9:00 prayers starting tomorrow night? I am going to spend the next week at a timeshare in Weston and, even though they have WIFI, I can’t be certain to be able to use it. I may or may not be online next week thru Friday.


  17. One of the reasons I love That 70s Show was that I was a kid in that era, not quite old enough to be as bad as the kids in this show. The other reason is it is superb comedy, on par with Warner Brothers cartoons, where it’s really funny for kids, where a third of the audience, the middle third, gets the humor on a whole new level, and the later third, age-wise, doesn’t get any of it.

    Me and my dad’s brother watched every episode of this show, when we weren’t watching every episode of M*A*S*H or C.O.P.S. or Little House. We had to stop watching Little House. Two grown-a** men in tears? Are you kidding me? Let’s go back to C.O.P.S., or at least Mayberry.


  18. I wish I had the whole Little House on the Prarie collection. I’ve seen them all many times, just like MASH and Twilight Zone. I remember a time when television was good.

    I’m SO glad I quit watching television 15 years ago. Fond memories of The A-Team, Knight Rider, and Magnum P.I.

    Everything after that pretty much sucked. Except the Stargate series’. Those were really good.
