    I saw that, I also saw that the lady who made his mittens is flooded with requests, I also saw this cute crochet doll https://www.etsy.com/nl/listing/933832118/bernies-mittens-crochet-doll-pattern-pdf?ref=shop_home_active_1&crt=1 unfortunately, you can buy the pattern and not the actual doll, but I'm sure it will be a matter of time before you can buy the actual doll on etsy.

    I know it's next to impossible to do this because you always forget to include one but anyway...let's see what might be in your album collections. Any embarrassing favourites? Put them in any order if you can't separate them. Just to suit my own choices I'll allow one box set if you want to add one. So this is me... 1. Physical Graffiti by Led Zeppelin 2. Close To The Edge by Yes 3. Clutching At Straws by Marillion 4. Blood On The Tracks by Bob Dylan 5. Operation Mindcrime by Queensryche 6. Dark Side Of The Moon by Pink Floyd 7. Made In Japan by Deep Purple 8. Into The Pandemonium by Celtic Frost 9. Pawn Hearts by Van Der Graaf Generator 10. The Early Music Collection (Naxos box set)

    I was asking myself the same, but finally I think they don't care if it's true, as long as it serves their goals and confirms their believes.

    I hope that's true, but I wonder ... it seems awfully convenient. But then, I can't figure out how anyone ever believed in Trump to begin with. The Washington Post has kept track of every lie and misleading statement Trump made while he was president ... the total was over 30,000. Why do people think he would lie that much about some things, but not lie to them? *sigh* Thank you! I saw the one with the Edward Hopper painting and couldn't figure out what the joke was! I guess I didn't notice him at the inaugural. But that is pretty funny.

    I'm sorry Artemis, I know how hard it is to put down a dog. My mom and I had to put our dog down 2,5 years ago, know that it while it might be the hard thing to do, it is the right decision.

    Some of them are quite well done, imo: And he's a good sport about it too, his store already has a "Chairman Sanders" sweater, with all proceeds going to Meels on Wheels Vermont. Honorable mention:

    He's not being mean, he's giving his beloved sibling a lovely head massage. The poor little thing has a headache after hearing too many puns.

    Oh, Artemis. So sorry. The most miserable times of my life have always been when my snugglebugs are seriously ill. Wish I could say something that would help, I know it must be a miserable time for you. Here's a virtual hug, though.

    I stuck here because I find other 'different' people here. Eventhough we are unique, just like everyone else here 😋, we are not so alone after all.

    Herl, Glad you have discovered "House". I bought the box set some years ago now and it's time for a revisit. Mr. Laurie was of course one of Britain's famous comic actors prior to taking on the lead in this American TV show. Untold numbers of Americans may have experienced a stroke upon first hearing 'Greg House' speaking like a toff, so brilliantly does Hugh embody 'American'. Obviously Cameron is the likeable one who gets criticised by House for caring. This is a direct pointer to Holmes dispassionate method of dealing with a case of course where clients are just part of a problem to be solved then it’s time to move on. I guess Cuddy is a sort of/ kind of Mycroft figure? Perhaps more like the Gatiss Mycroft treating House like a wayward pupil but without the added brilliance. She’s an authority figure who has invested in House but I think she has a similar attitude to Wilson although she probably wouldn’t admit to admiring House. I thought that Vogler was our Moriarty but he’s gone and I don’t think he returns? I had never really thought of House's team of junior researchers as 'the Irregulars' before, but they do function as his go-to assistants, doing the scut work he does not condescend to do himself, so I think that comparison is brilliant. They are not illiterate street urchins and are the top young doctors in their respective fields, so the comparison doesn't hold 100% But as to their function, they are the regular Irregulars. It would have been really funny if House had engaged some candy stripers to be his irregular Irregulars--those are usually high school kids. Cameron and Chase have more of a hero-worship thing for their mentor. Dr. Forman is maybe more akin to an Athelney Jones or a Tobias Gregson--an up-and-comer who often challenges 'the Great Brain', having a rather giant ego of his own. Forman is a good doctor, and Omar Epps is, of that group, the one who is most convincing as a doctor. The other two seem too lightweight and juvenile to really be the tops in such a competitive field. They look like what they are--young actors in their 20s portraying doctors on a television show. In Season 4, House cleans house and fires all of his regular Irregulars, launching a 'Survivor' style elimination tournament from a huge group of young residents to choose the replacements. I always thought of Cuddy as the 'Lestrade', being as she is the official voice of authority within the institutional structure and is actually House's boss, though he really pushes the envelope there. There is also a long-running mutual attraction between these two, briefly acted upon, IIRC, but mostly kept as a subtext/fantasy element. So Cuddy could also be 'The Woman'. There is another relationship in House's life later on with one of his interns that doesn't end well . . .I think maybe she was intended to be The Woman, but I do not like her at all, so I'm sticking with Cuddy. As for the 'Moriarty'--I don't think it's a person. 'Moriarty' for this Holmes is his pernicious addiction to narcotics & the pain that caused it. It is the only thing that can destroy him and at several points, it nearly succeeds. The various diseases that House and his team battle to diagnose each week are the minor villains.

    Maybe Mr. Fry was offered Mycroft as a sort of consolation prize, seeing as the vaunted Holmes-Watson project never got off the ground. His portrayal of Mycroft is one of the highlights of Game of Shadows, the other being Jared Harris as Moriarty. SF was not always as portly as he is now, but he's never ever had the rail-thin physique associated with Holmes, nor, I should think, his rather manic energy. He played Jeeves, the steady, calming bedrock butler to Hugh Laurie's Bertie Wooster, a daffy, not-bright and decidedly nervy aristocrat. I can't really envision Mr. Laurie as Doctor Watson, and see him more as a Holmes. SF could certainly embody certain features of Holmes--the erudition, the snottiness, the black moods--it's the extremely physical litheness & indefatigable energy of Holmes that seems missing there. He is perfect for Mycroft. I love his Mycroft so much, I want a whole Mycroft movie, with 'Sherlie' and Dr. Watson as supporting comedy relief. At best, Fry & Laurie present us with two Holmeses and we are still short a Watson. Dr. Watson extends his hand upon meeting his flatmate's even more singular elder brother. MH: No! (walks away) SH: He doesn't.

    It's been a bad day. Nothing's gone right, but mainly, it's my dog Cooper. ^ This illness, which turned out to be leaky gut, is finally taking a turn for the worse. The severity of it has fluctuated in cycles, usually flaring in the fall and clearing up somewhat in the spring. But he's never been this bad before. Last night he was whimpering all night because of how uncomfortable he was. He doesn't want to move or eat. He has runny, uncontrollable diarrhea. He's pretty miserable. There's no cure for his illness, the symptoms can only be alleviated with medication. But eventually the medication stops helping (if it doesn't lead to kidney failure first), and that seems to be what's happening now. The vet gave him another med that should improve his condition in the short-term, but it runs out in a week. If it doesn't help, or if it does but his illness cycles around again later with this severity, he will probably have to be put down.
