    So, you know that worky do I have every year around about now, the one that results in me coming on TOD late in the night hiccuping violently and telling you all I shlove you? Well, it’s tomorrow. So, I’ll have the usual Early Bird, but will be absent from then on til evening/night-ish, so if any available BT could post a heads up for PBO’s presser, with the video (which will appear here nearer the time: https://www.youtube.com/user/whitehouse/videos?view=2&flow=grid), that would be highly fantastic. I would ask you all to behave in my absence, but I know that would be a completely pointless plea.

    Today I saw a woman with the best Xmas t-shirt ever. It said, “Dear Santa….. Let me Explain……”

    Laughed out loud when I saw it.

    Off to make dinner and watch PBO on Running Wild (thanks for the reminder, Chips!)

    BBL to catch up…

    The Afghan Taliban say they have unleashed “special forces” in an increasingly bloody battle with fighters from the rival, so-called Islamic State (IS) group. The Taliban’s dominance and monopoly on insurgency in a region home to numerous local and foreign militant groups is being challenged by IS, which has been gaining some support. Who’s winning the war of the militants?
    How many Taliban special forces are fighting Islamic State?

    According to Taliban sources, the special task force, part of the Taliban’s special forces command, was set up in early October and has more than 1,000 fighters – better equipped and trained than regular Taliban and with the sole aim of crushing IS.

    Special ops teams are handpicked for their fighting skills and experience and are active in all provinces where IS has a current or potential presence – including Nangarhar, Farah, Helmand and Zabul. But Taliban special forces will deploy anywhere against IS, leaving other Taliban to fight Afghan and foreign troops.

    Bear: Catkin (sp?) is also good for flatulence.

    Without skipping a bear, POTUS replies: Well not a problem I have, but perhaps you do!

    Bear: Would ever encourage your girls to go into politics?

    PBO: No. But they came to me and said they wanted go into elected office I would be completely supportive, because I think it can be noble work, if done for the reasons the right way. What I try to teach my daughters is be useful and be kind… and if you do those two things, wherever your passions take you, you’ll turn out okay…
    Bear: Kind is such a big one. It’s not complicated is it? Sometimes we have a journey in life to come around to realizing actually that is it.
    PBO: Try to be useful to somebody and try to kind.

    PBO: i’m fairly cut but it’s possible the bottle opener is a little dated. I noticed for example there’s no gray hair on the Obama figurine and clearly The Presidency has taken a little bit of a toll. But, you know, Michelle tells me I’m holding up okay. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Q&A: Bear Grylls talks running wild in the Alaskan wilderness with Barack Obama

    “….Q: Can you talk a little bit about your impression of him and what kinds of things did you guys do together?

    Bear Grylls: Well, my overriding impression was just heโ€™s a really humble, family-centered, lovely guy. I mean, of course, the times along the route I have to kind of pinch myself and think actually, this is the president of America. And I think thereโ€™s a connection when youโ€™re out in the wild with someone. I always say itโ€™s the ultimate learning. One of the big reasons he wanted to do this, that he wanted to see some of the effects of climate change close up. Heโ€™s a dad and he wants to preserve the planet for his childrenโ€™s future and I feel exactly the same way. I spend all of my life charging around the world and all of these wildernesses and I see the harsh reality of climate change close up. We want to make sure our children get to enjoy these wonderful wildernesses. So there is a great connection there. But also my overriding thing was actually what a really lovely guy. And he was excited to be there and it was fun to be able to kind of pull each otherโ€™s leg a little bit. In a way that if you just sort of meet someone in the White House with an interview situation, itโ€™s difficult to do. But youโ€™re out there and you kind of light fire together and climb up trees and, you know, half eaten salmons and talking about flatulence and the berries and all of that gets out. So huge privilege but definitely a fair side of the president you never see before….continued”

    Dangit, de-lurking to say…I missed the show and forgot to DVR it…I was too busy watching my bae Idris and the new Luther episode.

    Ugh…Hope NBC re-broadcasts it or puts it Hulu soon.

    Or I’ll just have to wait until someone puts the highlights on YouTube.

    Dang…have a good night TOD.

      I just finished watching PBO & Bear and it was wonderful. PBo’s words for all to live by which i know from reading the book about his mom she instilled in him, “be useful and be kind”. The show ending in a prayer was the best. How people can continue to hate PBO is beyond rational thinking.
