55 My first impression about this painting is that it is pleasant. It isn't dramatic or powerful, just a nice scene done with huge skill. The model is lovely. The color scheme is distinct without being glaring.

Looking at this work and some of Jose Ferraz de Almeida Junior's other paintings, there is a photograph quality about them. It's not a photo realistic aspect so much as a snapshot quality. Also, although not in this scene, a number of his paintings show a real sense of humor.

Don McLean wrote a song about it.
I could be mistaken, but I think that was the song Lori Lieberman heard McLean singing when she was inspired to write and record the song "Killing Me Softly" -- subsequently heard by Roberta Flack on an airplane, re-recorded by her, and the rest is history.

What's in the other chair? My zoom-fu is weal today.

I like today's painting. The textures in the fabric and trees, the sense of a relaxed very wealthy young lady (the hair = servants and the fine Corinthian leather of the chairs, the clothing, the veranda overlooking equally lovely compounds, etc.) and knowing she sports the finest merkin under her linen skirt... This would be worth putting in the rotation of a digital picture frame...

How to Serve Hero Dogs

Posted by: Krebs v Carnot: Epic Battle of the Cycling Stars (TM) at October 31, 2019 10:01 AM (pNxlR)

149 Candy cigarettes . . . when I was a kid, there were two kinds: the white chewy ones with the pink-painted tips, and the gold standard, the chocolates. Each chocolate tube came in a white paper sleeve, so they *looked* like real cigarettes. I think at least one brand had the Camel logo on the box. Those were good.

Didn't encourage me to start smoking, Camels or any other brand. But to this day, when I hear about cigarettes, especially if someone in a prison camp is using them as money, I think of the chocolate ones.

200 On the candy cigarettes, I loved the white ones when I was a kid, hadn't thought about them in years until you guys started discussing them. Just looked online and you can still get them mail order. I think next year I'm going to get a bunch and hand them out on Halloween and watch the lib moms in the neighborhood freak out. This is going to be hugely fun. Will probably keep a few for myself as I do love them.

201 Grandma Pelosi's up, what a repugnant crap weasel.


The idea that anything said on that call was inappropriate or rises to the level of removal is ludicrous.

Here is the sum total of what was said on the call regarding the Biden's....



"The other thing, There's a lot talk about Biden's son, that Eiden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if
you can look into it... It sounds horrible to me."

He asked him to look into the circumstances of the firing of the prosecutor and to work with the US Attorney General.

There is literally nothing remarkable or illicit about what Trump was asking.


This is all preposterous.


I really wish the Republicans were a better political party, because this nonsense is become frustrating.

Sexy adult costumes! Years ago my then-wife and I went to Bennigan's the Saturday night before Halloween. They encouraged you to come in costume. I don't recall what I wore, but she wore her home-made barbarianette outfit, pretty much a suede leather bikini, with a lot of skin showing.

I remember a road trip I took down there in May '98 or so. Went to Great Sand Dunes National Monument, and took a chance to drive my '84 Mercedes at 100 on one of the string-straight county roads nearby. Then I came over a slight rise and saw the sign, "Watch for Bison on Road."

We see more of this in Denver, too, though not as extreme - also due (I think) to the huge in-migration the past several years. When there's no dominant driving culture anymore, it descends into madness because the lowest common denominator (e.g., the rudest average group) dominates behavior. Everyone knows the paper rules but no one knows the practical rules because practical rules don't exist anymore due to dilution, and everything normalizes to madness.

I was inbound on the San Bernardino Fwy about ten miles out of Downtown when, for whatever reason, I happened to look to my left. There, in the bus lane, was a car, going backwards. At 60 mph. As it was slowing, I checked it in my side view mirror. It completed a 360 degree spin and apparently came to a stop. How the driver managed to get the car to do a 360 spin around center mass, and stay in the lane, is something that has always mystified me.

River Bridge swoops up, after a last light, from the right lane in a two-lane avenue. If I sat politely in that right lane, it'd take me another 1/2 hour to get home. I zoom down to the last 10 cars or so and blink-and-edge my way into the right lane.

I know I shouldn't, but my view is, the city should make it possible to get on the damn bridge in less than a dog's lifetime!

I'm sorry. We had our big meeting on this last Saturday. I learned from one person who was speaking that gays have turned the word queer into a positive word like Wesley turned the word of opprobrium-Methodist_into a positive word. I didn't really see the connection, but o.k. I have never called any gay person "queer" in my life and don't intend to now.

345 I always thought Nashville was a weird place to drive through. No real bypass so you have to take I-24. Typical two lane interstate with very little traffic, then ten miles of pretty congested six lane through town and back to a pretty quit two lane.

They need to run the ads on the vintage TV channels, right next to the Hurry-Cane ads and Alex Trebek hawking 50-85-year-old life insurance that can't be cancelled. Looks like the market for the robot kitties would all be 80-year-olds.

It's cute, I admit, but it can't come over to you and bump its head against you just for company.

^^ My husband had a hip replacement and his recovery was pretty fast. I forget what the kind of hip replacement he got was called but it was a new technique that meant he had more range of motion afterwards. Transverse? If you are in the DMV area I would be happy to share doctor's name.
