    BBL…

    My Daughter and I are going to surprise my wife, were taking down all the decorations and are going to clean up so well we could lick the floors :-)

    BBL…

    Peace & Grace

    Fox news heading about Fiscal Cliff, “House members called back to Washington to address Fiscal Cliff.”

    MSNBC’s heading about Fiscal Cliff, “No solution to the Fiscal Cliff, who’s to Blame.”

    Once again MSNBC proves that Libs and progressives that placing BLAME on the other party is more important then fixing the problem.

    @hillbilly
    i’m predicting there will be none in the top 25 or 50 next week.

  • 1966

    @coffee steve
    remember the jar with the stars.

  • Letmethink

    Morning all.
    BevAg–as dd posted–you hit the nail on the head about posting the gun owners names and addresses. And what hypocrisy that he didn’t post himself as a gun owner.
    Will be interesting to see what the numbers are this next week. Things probably won’t be back to normal until after the 1st.
    So sad that no one is being truly held accountable for Benghazi. The sadder fact is that the left and many on the right don’t care. They seem to be buying into the talking point that it is just political. As Pappa would say–the news media is a nice puppy to own–or something like that
    Have a good one all. Off for the day—

  • cathy

    Every one who looks at ratings and only points at the 25-53 demo as a network winning is spinning the numbers. If 25-53 was the only important group rating numbers wouldn’t even be collected for the other demos.

    Using your logic that networks cared only about the numbers Madison Ave care about, there wouldn’t be cartoon network, nick, Disney, aBC family, MTV and other Networks.

    The Marketing people who make the largest salaries are the ones that find the best bargain advertising spots for their customer. (Bargain isn’t the cheapest, it’s the best ad cost per sell.)

    Good Morning 1966

    I remember the jar with the stars in it, One of my sisters got one, one Christmas years ago. I always got the glow in the dark Planets and Stars set :-)

  • Coffee Steve

    Morning Cathy and LetMeThink, Top of the morning ladies

  • Coffee Steve

    By the way 1966, I never could guess the number of stars in the jar LOL

  • 1966

    @coffee steve
    do you ever drink sanka?

  • Coffee Steve

    @1966

    Oh Yeah! But it tasted like beach sand to me LOL

  • cathy

    Oh No, when need to ban guns from police now.
    Three cops reportedly shot inside New Jersey police station ;-) See fox news for story. can’t post link.

    Good Morning Coffee Steve -LOL beach sand and sanka.

  • Coffee Steve

    Snow tonight 1-3 tonight another 2 on Saturday and people are in a State Of Panic here, and the snow will be a wet snow mainly on grassy areas :-)

  • Coffee Steve

    Going through a divorce in 1995 I moved to Collegeville PA for awhile, it snowed 32 inches the day I moved in, and I still walked to a job interview (3) miles, and they panic around here over 3 inches? :lol:

  • RedBarSoup

    So 400k more people sat home on Christmas watching Fox News than MSNBC. Kind of sad. More 25-54 people watched MSNBC on Christmas still kind of sad. 400,000 is still more sad though. :) Especially since they consider the very young and the very old.

  • RedBarSoup

    more sad=sadder. Don’t know what I was thinking.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Coffee Steve: Good Morning, my friend! Hope your Christmas was great and you have a much better 2013. God bless you and the rest of the gang here, be they friend or foe.

  • cathy

    Today’s news medias makes crossing the street dramatic. They make us panic over the change of snow. Do you ever wonder what someone from the 1800′s would think of us and our complains of winter storms or summer heat?

    Did you stop to think that maybe these people are the ones that dont celebrate Christmas? And why is it sad if that is what they choose to do? It is not like the ratings for either was the same as any other day, THEN it might be considered sad.

  • Coffee Steve

    @Ralph Hahn
    God bless you and the rest of the gang here, be they friend or foe.

    Amen!

    Howdy Ralph, has Rats been behaving while I been on the road? :-)
