Re: R.I.P. Bill Withers

Bill Withers' "Lean on Me" was released in April 1972 as the first single from his second album, Still Bill . It was his first and only number one single on both the soul singles and the Billboard Hot 100. Sometimes in our lives we all have pain We all have sorrow But if we are wise We kno...

Re: R.I.P. Patricia Bosworth

"Tell-all" is a euphemism for "unauthorized biography" which most of Bosworth's biographies were. Only the one she wrote on Jane Fonda was with the subject's permission. The rest were all dead and thus beyond the ability to either grant or deny their permission. I will say, howev...

Re: Stay Safe Everyone!

A plane is flying with 5 passengers on board - Donald Trump, Boris Johnson, Angela Merkel, the Pope and a 10 year old school boy. The plane is about to crash and there are only 4 parachutes. Trump said I need one. “I’m the smartest man in the US and I am needed to sort out the problems of the World...

Re: Stay Safe Everyone!

I was almost in the same boat with two houses when I moved back from the west coast in 2011 but I was able to sell my California house in two days albeit at a huge loss. The mortgage had been paid, but there would still have been property taxes, HOA fees and other miscellaneous items but the mortgag...

Re: Coming DVDs

They may be a luxury item but they do help to keep the economy going in one of the places it can still go. I received a package from Criterion on Monday that they shipped through the post office on Saturday. On the other hand, I have a package coming from another company that's been sitting at the r...

Re: Richard Jewell reviews

This is really two movies in one. The central story of the earnest security guard who really wants to help but can't keep his mouth shut to his own detriment is a solid one. Paul Walter Hauser is excellent in the role. Sam Rockwell is equally fine as his lawyer and Kathy Bates has her best role in y...

Re: Campaign 2020

Just because they "approve" of Trump today doesn't mean they'll vote for him in November. Sadly, so many are falling for the same old promises of a handout when "the little guy" will be getting a pittance compared to what the titans of industry will be getting...again! They belie...

Re: Stay Safe Everyone!

Friends don't let friends shop at Walmart: https://www.dailydot.com/unclick/walmart-labor-unions-bad-company/ Some of us don't live in big cities that give us many options on where to shop. So true. If I had the option, I wouldn't patronize the place but it's the closest to my home and was close to...

Re: Campaign 2020

What I'm seeing on the ground is that all but the most steadfast supporters of Trump don't believe anything that has come out of his mouth in the last week. I swear if Biden and Sanders were to drop their bids and ask for a brokered convention, Andrew Cuomo would easily get the nomination and the wi...

Re: Stay Safe Everyone!

Yesterday, I checked to see if my six-month appointment with my doctor was still on for next Monday. It is, so today being the only day this week in which we're not supposed get heavy rains, I fasted in order to do bloodwork this morning, not knowing at all what to expect. I have my blood taken at t...
