      Hiya, Ralph, good to see you. Don’t recall seeing you hereabouts recently.

      Congrats on first.

      Miss your TOD posts, always feel like I’ve learned something new after reading. Hope Winter is treating you well.

      BTW, what’s a lanQuage? If Robert Crater is going to defend the English language, it’d be more meaningful if he made sure his spelling of same passes muster. The ‘q’ is not exactly in the same vicinity as the ‘g’!

          It does indeed, Hopef. Of course, I should give them the benefit of the (spelling) doubt by recognizing they were so emotionally caught up in their righteous indignation, their rage blinded them. Then again, their rage always blind them – poor unhappy, bitter, narrow-minded…..souls. 🙄

        That must have been a nightmare! At times like these I appreciate the machine called TV.

        Now I’m hearing that there are people who flew in and are now stranded at NJ/NYC airports with delays and cancellations because of the weather. It must especially suck as a Broncos fan who made that trek….

        • 31 donna dem 4 obama
          February 3, 2014 at 3:25 pm

          And to think that the average price of admission for that game was $1700.00 per seat so yeah that’s gonna be a really long flight home for the Broncos fans even when they do get airborne . 😆

              February 3, 2014 at 6:54 pm

              Oh that was the starting price. The face value on the tickets ran from $800 – $2500 but you couldn’t buy them for this price. Instead you had to buy them on the re-sale market starting at $1700.00. It’s just ridiculous. It’s an event for the rich and famous.

      As the nation grows in population, Our ability to improve and expand out antiquated infrastructure lags further behind. NJ and NY need more transportation expansion. Just like in GA last week. Just like every other state. Since Nixon, US has regressed from our basic duties for our growing nation’s transportation Needs.

      I feel sorry for those who have been stranded as that must be extremely frustrating, especially if their team lost. However, *I* can’t imagine leaving my home to go to a crowded game IN THE COLD; I don’t care which sport it is!

      • 44 hopefruit2
        February 3, 2014 at 3:39 pm

        Exactly – nothing beats the warmth, comfort and affordability of watching the game at home, or else why do we bother to have TV machines? It’s for times like these. As Donna said, these tickets were $1700 a pop (and that was after falling dramatically in price)!

        • 45 vcprezofan2
          February 3, 2014 at 4:07 pm

          😯 $1700! You both made that up! No way so many people would be able to put together so much for a *football* game, or any game!!! I don’t believe it!!

        With you on this!! I was always grateful that my daughter chose dancing and acting for her exercise and enrichment, over soccer or softball!!

          I wasn’t quite as lucky as you, MP! My offspring chose swimming which, while indoors, necessitated him having to be on pool deck by 5:15am three to four mornings a week. AND that did not include the after school practices or the weekend majorly-boring swim meets! You better believe I was NOT SMILING smugly or AT ALL!!!!!!

        • February 3, 2014 at 7:54 pm

          I had 4 kids each doing their own thing. One daughter danced, sang and acted. I liked attending her performances a lot. Another daughter was on ski team as a downhill racer (brrr cold watching that). She also played soccer, softball and volleyball. A son was into individual sports with cross country track, rock and ice climbing, cross country skiing and downhill skiing. The oldest son was into basketball and soccer. Their Dad and I got a varied experience as fans of our kids activities, as well as time consuming shared deliveries to and from practices.

    Howdy all you O’s!!! A great getting up day agin in TODville!!

    I am soooooooo over the snow and c-c-c-c-old weather. I shoveled 4 times on Saturday and each time it looked as if I hadn’t been out there at all. That, after shoveling every other day for about 2 weeks prior. Now, today the forecast calls for another snow weather warning for Tuesday and Wednesday. We get these frigid, freezing temps for two days, then snow for two days. An endless cycle and it’s just not any fun!

    In other news……. I do believe the fat lady is warming up in the wings, in preparation for her duet with Chrispie.

    Was this posted last night?

    Know about nothing about football — although when I was growing up, I was a huge San Diego Chargers fan — loved Lance Alworth and saw Joe Namath play in the San Diego High School stadium (before the Mission Valley stadium was built in 1969, I think). Also saw The Beatles in that stadium in 1965. Good memories.

    Announcing the First White House Maker Faire

    // In years past, firing a marshmallow cannon might have landed you in the principal’s office. On Tuesday, it landed 16-year-old Joey Hudy in the First Lady’s box at the 2014 State of the Union Address.

    At the 2012 White House Science Fair, Joey wowed the President by using a homemade cannon to send a marshmallow flying across the East Room. Joey then handed the President a business card reading, “Don’t be bored, make something.” The saying became a rallying cry for the President’s efforts to grow a generation of students who are “makers of things, not just consumers of things.” In December, Joey became the youngest Intel intern, after he amazed Intel CEO Brian Krzanich at a Maker Faire, which is an event that allows tinkerers, entrepreneurs, and inventors like Joey to haul their creations out of the garage and into the spotlight.

    Inspired by “Joey Marshmallow” and the millions of citizen-makers driving the next era of American innovation, we are thrilled to announce plans to host the first-ever White House Maker Faire later this year. We will release more details on the event soon, but it will be an opportunity to highlight both the remarkable stories of Makers like Joey and commitments by leading organizations to help more students and entrepreneurs get involved in making things.

    Meanwhile, you can get involved by sending pictures or videos of your creations or a description of how you are working to advance the maker movement to maker@ostp.gov, or on Twitter using the hashtag #IMadeThis. Take Joey’s advice – don’t be bored, make something. Maybe you, like Joey, can take your making all the way to The White House. //

      I read this morning that our governor is not going to wait on her to decide. I read last week that he is behind in fundraising so I guess since she has decided to drag her feet then he is going full steam ahead…This should be interesting considering what “good friends” they are.

      Right now I think he is the best in the field. I’m sure they will bring up that indiscretion he supposedly had some years ago but in this era I think he can get around that.

      He is a great debater one-on-one. In fact I will go as far as to say the best I’ve seen but I’m hoping that they are working on his public speaking. I’m not sure if its because after PBO the bar has been set so high and no one can live up to him but I think this is the Gov’s one weak spot. I’ve seen him speak in person many times and although he tries hard I don’t get the sense that he inspires his audience.

        Donna, when we’ve had the best, everything else will pale in comparison. Frankly, I’ve never been impressed with Hillary’s speaking skills, so it’s not as if the comparison with her will be dramatic. Good training can make a big difference. I hope O’Malley takes advantage of it.

    Did Bill O’Reilly actually ask PBO if he “knew football, blitzes and all that?” Yes, he did because I just saw it with my very own unbelieving eyes—–can’t remember that from the interview that aired. Billo must have cut that part out of humiliating embarrassment. Amused, PBO assured, “I know football, man.”
