You must remember that we are now the land of Trump!
This should be going on in the Christian community!
The first time I ran into a man with a gun was in a little restaurant. He had a holster with in a revolver. My first thought was to get the hell out of the place.
Most of the shows we watch are from outside the US.
Morse, Endeavor, Inspector Lewis, "Yes, Minister", Monty Python.
And, yes, we like Frasier.
And we dislike Trump!

Is this where I vote for Trump?

Trump can't be clued in. He defies Cluedom.
The lack of a national church is a plus. In Scotland?
"More Scots than ever have described themselves as having no religion, according to new research.

The Scottish Attitudes Survey, compiled by the independent research body ScotCen, found 58% of respondents said they had no religion at all.

When the survey was carried out in 1999, the figure was 40%.

Among major denominations, the Church of Scotland has seen the sharpest decline, with just 18% saying the belong to the Kirk."
Dog bless our Scottish friends.

68° F this morning. Rain coming.
Trump still prez.
I also came across an interesting paperback book recently. It was about Japanese scientists in Indonesia.
I have the hard copy of that book. A North Korean is working on a documentary on the subject.
I can't wait.
I doubt that the man has dementia, but what do any of us know about that?
More importantly (perhaps) is the on and off meeting with Kim.
1. Does it matter?
2. Do you care if it happens? For the record, I don't.
Decades ago I worked in South Korea for several years and ate in local Korean restaurants. My colon is still troubled. Do you care about that? I didn't think so.
Eh, ersi?

They have offered to go but are still in existence and what is the weird Nordic stuff? Chile is nowhere near northern Europe nor part of it (as well as being Protestant Faith not Popish) !
The latest on the religious front.
Nut job country? Really RJ!
I have to say, though, that some American politicians have their moments in the darkness.
Dan Quayle on the Holocaust:
''The Holocaust was an obscene period in our nation's history. I mean in this century's history. But we all lived in this century. I didn't live in this century.''
DnD Central / Re: Age
Just turned 81. At least I think I did. Back in a bit...have to check with my wife.
It's all one big joke. :zzz:
"If it isn't the population who are gun mad so too are many of what are called "police.""
"It was who created the revolution and cobbled a system to ensure it stayed the way they wanted."
You might briefly explain that statement.

The growth of any church/religion, Orthodox or other, is a step backward.
If anybody ever finds  :jester: Trump :jester:  doing something right, please point it out.

Hitler couldn't do it; The British Empire failed.
ISIS is doomed.
DnD Central / Re: Today's Good News
By the end of this century my country and mainland europe will be a hell hole.
ISIS is a pinprick, not an organization that  represents a major threat to any European nation. Within 10 years they won't be a threat to any nation, large or small. That will take us to 2027, at which date I'll be dead. Take me to task then...unless ISIS has conquered Scotland. Do you think that likely?
"The start of 2016 saw the highest number of terrorism deaths in Western Europe since 2004, BBC research has revealed.
The first seven months of the year saw 143 deaths, which is also the second worst start to the year since 1980.
The Madrid train bombings in March 2004 left 191 people dead."
"In the first nine months of 2016, an estimated 27,875 people died in motor vehicle crashes on our (United States) roadways. That is an increase of about 8% compared to the 25,808 fatalities in the first nine months of 2015."
Ban cars!

I'm a fan of unhealthy foods. If you are too, you might like this recipe.
This mac 'n' cheese, adapted from the book "Real Food Has Curves" by Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough, is quicker and easier to make than the classic casserole. It is hearty comfort food that easily functions as a main dish for vegetarians.

Featured in: Vegetarian Comfort Food At Thanksgiving.

Kosher, Nut Free, Vegetarian, Broccoli, Macaroni, Mushroom  Mark as  Cooked  92 ratings 
4 ounces grated Cheddar
2 ounces finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano or other hard cheese
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 small yellow onion, chopped
6 ounces cremini or white button mushrooms, sliced
3 tablespoons unbleached all-purpose flour
3 cups low-fat or fat-free milk
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon minced tarragon leaves or 2 teaspoons dried tarragon
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
8 ounces dried whole-wheat pasta shells (not the large ones for stuffing), cooked and drained according to the package instructions
4 cups small broccoli florets, cooked in boiling water for 1 minute (broccoli can be added to the pasta during the last minute of cooking, then drained with the pasta in a colander)
 Nutritional Information
Mix the Cheddar and Parmigiano-Reggiano in a medium bowl. Set aside.
Melt the butter in a large, high-sided, oven-safe skillet. Add the onion and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 3 minutes.
Add the mushrooms and cook until they release their liquid and it comes to a simmer, and then reduces by about two-thirds, about 5 minutes.
Sprinkle the flour over the vegetables in the skillet. Stir well to coat.
Whisk in the milk in a steady, thin stream until creamy. Then whisk in the mustard, tarragon, salt and pepper. Continue whisking until the mixture starts to bubble and the liquid thickens, about 3 minutes
Remove the skillet from the heat. Stir in three-quarters of the mixed cheeses until smooth. Then stir in the cooked pasta and broccoli.
Preheat the broiler after setting the rack 4 to 6 inches from the heat source. Meanwhile, sprinkle the remaining cheese over the ingredients in the skillet. Set the skillet on the rack and broil until light browned and bubbling, about 5 minutes. (If your skillet has a plastic or wooden handle, make sure it sticks outside the oven, out from under the broiler, so the handle doesn't melt.) Cool for 5 to 10 minutes before dishing up.
Any (gentleman's) bets on how long it takes Gorsuch to be confirmed?

I'd wager less than a week. (I think he's a good choice.)
As usual, I have no idea how long it will take. Why do you think he's a good choice?
What do you think of the mooted claim of a $54 billion increase in defense spending?
How about Bashful, Doc, Dopey, Happy, Sleepy, Sneezy and Grumpy.

Well, Trump likes to travel with friends, and that costs more.
My favorite musician. Not exactly a 'hit' or a 'best song', but Mr. Yo-Yo Ma is special.
