Good lord I need coffee. I've been without my ring so long I can't keep it straight. He's got his ring on, it's on the correct hand, and I'm done interneting for the day.

Wait, wait, wait, wait. Obama wears his ring on his left hand. What's that about?

Derrrr, obviously that third pic was prior to Obama leaving for vacation, what with him being in the Oval Office and all. But Aug 9 was the start of his vacation (from his marriage?)

Ramadan Jun 28 to Jul 28. In the press conference after the Malaysian flight shot down on Jul 18, he had his ring on.

DoT: No, so long as the fencing doesn't impede the ingress and egress. But note: ingrates and egrets can be impeded with impunity and abandon. I've avoided telling the story of our Idaho easement stuff because . . . we avoided it when my dad just bought the back 10 acres to keep from facing the issues (easement rights could have meant having to move an existing fence), and because I have no particular understanding of the matter whatsoever. Mostly because I have no particular understanding of the matter whatsoever.

I'm just saying, Jane, if you had marketed the cruise as a the chance to hang out with you forever, as opposed to one week, I would have had no second thoughts about quitting my job, selling my house and permanently relocating my family at sea.

"The newspaper’s editorial board noted that when he campaigned for his first term as governor president four years ago, Cuomo Obama said 'Job 1' would be to clean up Albany D.C. and 'make the government work for the people.' But the Times never accused Cuomo Obama of failing to live up to that promise and endorsed him full-throatedly anyway."

Jane: Jim Geraghty promised us that if we lost the 2012 election the NRO cruise would sail away and never come back. I might hold him to that this time. A little marketing advice. If you had been saying that these last few months, you might have gotten more takers amongst JOMers to go on the cruise than "be there or be square". "We are going to commandeer the ship and make it a permanent Floating Jane's Island."

CH: About a week ago I noticed that the sunset was getting much earlier and it's this weekend that I always notice the light being a certain unique color in the early evening. Yeah, I just noticed this week how it's dark on my way in to work. Bummer bummer bummer. But then again, I'm getting really psyched for the start of Pro Football Driveway Blogging season. As DoT has pointed out before, the changes are surely more severe and rapid in daddy's neck of the woods and further north. Not to mention how global warming has affected the severity of the change of seasons, of course.

Stephanie: For hit: http://gizmodo.com/good-god-someones-selling-a-99-pack-of-beers-1626890533 Someone should write a song about that.
Miss Marple: I have said before this country has gotten too soft, catering to the whims of assorted social scientists, educrats, grievance groups, and the like. The US is obsessed with First World Problems. Obama decided the best course of action was to . . . make the US a Third World country.
Janet: Maybe...from a ditch back onto the road heading for a desired point. Now you're just stealing from Obama. (tagline, "don't just sit in the back sippin' on a slurpee") Next thing you know, you'll be suggesting the 12 year old dance around the homeless chanting, "grow rhubarb grow!"
A word from the President of Mexico, speaking in California: “There are still states that have not evolved so much as California, that still skimp on recognition and, even worse, the rights of immigrants,” he said. “Those who still believe and bet for the exclusion and discrimination or the rejection of diversity … I only have one thing to say: the future, and a very near future, will demonstrate your ethical mistake. Time will show we’re right.” ¡Ay, caramba! WASHINGTON — Mexican officials have deported more than 13,000 of the 14,000 undocumented, unaccompanied minors who have been caught at Mexico’s southern border, a rate significantly higher than in the United States, according to government sources familiar with the situation. Additionally, Mexican authorities have deported more than 64,000 of the estimated 69,000 adults that have been detained along their southern border this year.
Alice: I've always been partial to "a hand up, not a hand out", although for your friend's purposes, probably best to expand on the first phrase and drop the second phrase. I like it. She could go around the streets of Boston and when she finds a homeless person she can yell out, "Hands up!" :)
cathyf: One post in an hour in the middle of the day? That's not the JOM I know! Sorry, JOM productivity drops off when I'm busy and don't have a chance to use all my different aliases to create the appearance of a large JOM contingent of commenters. Used to, I had automated trollatrons, but I lost the software that did that. I can't remember if it was Teh Sequester or Obamacare that took it away. Oh, wait, no, maybe it was global warming.
Ferret ownership? The ferret owns Obama.
She is a student at Pitzer College in Claremont,CA working toward degrees in creative writing and Africana studies. Dave: A promising feather-passer on the cusp of starting a career in a burgeoning field, cut down by The Man. She beats this rap and she could be the next deputy national security advisor (I wonder if she has a brother who runs an alphabet network news division?).
Miss Marple: That golfing right after speaking to the beheaded reporter's parents wasn't some sort of goof-up done because of inexperienced handlers. Aide: Mr. President, your schedule today calls for a statement about the beheading of Mr. Foley, and then a round of golf. May I suggest that your afternoon activity be something that shows a little conspicuous mourning. It would make for some good press. Obama: Great idea! Get Alonzo on the phone and get him to the course. Kick someone else out of our foursome. But not Reggie. Keep Reggie. Kick out that white guy. Aide: Mr. President, that's not exactly what I.... Obama: No, it's perfect. Take the rest of the day off. You deserve it.
Jane: It's mrs hit's birthday and you damn well had better make it memorable. Nope. mrs hit and run shares a birthday with Clarice, Topsecretk9 and grandbaby PD in December. But you know what today is????? HAPPY BIRTHDAY SUE!!! ::grin::
I think I've said it before . . . I don't have a palate that differentiates quality of taste between my Miller High Life and whatever the best beer you've ever had. Every once in a while I'll taste a beer that I do find particularly tasteful . . . and better. But just not very often. I can taste the difference between beers. It's just that a more expensive brew doesn't bring me more satisfaction than a cheap beer. I have never found a beer on the shelves of my local Food Lion or Harris Teeter that I would be willing to pay for if it cost more than my High Life. I wish my palate was more discriminatory. But it's just not. I guess it saves me money. Except that I make it up squander it on volume.
Jane: You are entrusted with an important task and it's time to stop messing with your constituents. Who the what the when did anyone "entrust" me with anything? Is there a contract or something we can refer to because I don't remember signing anything. Don't go all "you didn't build that, someone else made that happen" on me or I'll go all Galt on the whole thing. FTSAH: Porch, TK, Soylent, Rob Crawford and Pofarmer are all waaaaaaaaay past 40. I say this as someone who is one year younger than those old farts are.
You guys are terrible guessers on the mystery birthday. Unfortunately, I'm afraid this JOMer won't be coming around to self-identify, leaving the mystery unsolved. Shame, that.
