    Andrea Mills of YouTube infamy has cancer

    Yeah, that's just crazy talk. They lost their mom, not their house. They already had clothes, and this hasn't changed that. I'm sure whoever asked means well, but it's going to create an unnecessary burden for the family. The sad thing that I was thinking about, is that for a long time they will probably be eating things that Andrea made and froze, and using items (laundry pods and the like) that she made with her own hands. When they get to the bottom of that supply, it's probably going to be crushing. Or an odd mix- crushing to have it, and crushing to run out of it. It's not like she was sick for a long time, and had relinquished control of the home- she was keeping house as recently as last week, from the sounds of things. She is still everywhere they turn, and that has to be something else... I can't imagine. I have no shortage of sympathy for those children. Not many things sadder, than a group of little ones losing a parent. I'm glad Tom's planning to spend some time off work to be with them and figure things out. It's hard to think of a workable solution for many of the problems they now face.

    Dillards 79: Sex Education on the Fly

    I don’t give him enough credit for that kind of deception. I feel like it’s more likely he didn’t lie but was new to the idea of no bc, taken in by the perfect Duggar family and was ready to go all-in on their wacky beliefs, and has slowly drifted back to his original starting point (conservative but secular Christian) and dragged Jill with him. Reversion to the mean.

    Cam n Beccy Mosser: Christ-honoring Criminal Charges

    The ancient rabbis (in the Sifra, a 4th century CE commentary) were sure they found a prohibition on lesbianism in the Bible. Here it is, guys: Leviticus 18:3 "You shall not do as they do in the land of Egypt, where you lived, and you shall not do as they do in the land of Canaan, to which I am bringing you. You shall not follow their statutes." And what were they doing in Egypt and Canaan? LESBIANISM, obviously. I'm... not fully convinced by this interpretation.

    Meghan and Harry 2: Now with Archie

    Edward and His wife mostly live a very Quiet life of Royal Duties with out fuss or scandal. I don’t see Charles bothering to much with them esp.Sophie Wessex seems to be family favorite. Same with incredibly hardworking Ann. Andrew will likely be told to quietly retire and not be seen at public events, dinners, etc as Charles does not need his skeevy rep putting a shadow on the new reign

    Dillards 79: Sex Education on the Fly

    Interesting @picklepizzas. I guess when they said they’d be leaving it up to God when they got married that included birth control. Does that mean that Derick lied on the questionnaire?

    I don't think anyone is saying they don't deserve sympathy. We just shouldn't make Andrea into someone she wasn't. There is no sense in turning her into some sort of a kind, harmless soul when that wasn't who she was.
  9. I would have paid good $ to see Felicity whip the cap off that pen and scribble all over that pretentious prig’s book.* *I had a child whose worst offensive and weapon was a black sharpie marker applied to any and all available surfaces.

    The views on things like 9/11 definitely not harmless but I still think they deserve sympathy over the loss of Andrea and the uncertainty they now face. I've noticed that a lot of people with religious beliefs on the extreme side of things tend to double down on those beliefs when tragedy hits. It isn't always helpful and I hope that they are receiving support from a bereavement counsellor or other qualified person who can help them navigate their feelings in a healthy way. Whatever horrible things they have said or done in the past, whether they were done out of malice or just some misguided beliefs, they deserve compassion over what has happened. They're human beings.

    We definitely need "disgust" on the Bro threads. Maybe multi-disgust.

    Gwen Shamblin 8: Not Smart Enough to Think

    Back in the dark ages when I graduated from high school I was a size 9 (juniors) on the bottom, XL on the top. Now I'm a 14-18 on the bottom (depends on the clothes) and still an XL on the top. I still hide it well, nobody guesses my true weight and usually go anywhere from 20-40 lbs under. FTR, I'm 5' 4 1/2" tall and currently about 200 lbs.

    anyone seen this interesting comment by Derrick yet? Hmm. Wouldn’t it be shocking if parent-pleasing jill were really the first Duggar child to use family planning? Acknowledging Derrick hasn’t technically admitted they are using bc.

    Trump 42: Racist In Chief

    It seems to be true. He was quoting someone I think? But still, can you imagine if Obama or even Bush had posted a quote like that which also implies American Jews are disloyal?

A friend shilling Monet. another friend shilling cheap jewelry but I'll give her props for having a second account where most of that goes. and a few people lately who have fallen into Plexis but I haven't seen much from them -- yet.

    JRod 108: Selling the Grifted House

    I love my Lenox princesses - Christmas and Legendary. The 2017 Christmas was carrying books (like my niece, an avid reader), 2018 was holding a kitten and a puppy (me -- dog mom), and 2019 is holding cookies (my cousin who bakes), so I see the latest ones as a memory of each of us. I also have Barbies, with one I got when I was about 8 (50+ years ag). She's wearing a bride dress my mom made for her. My dad left us a ton of music equipment -- speakers, amplifiers, mixing boards, and God knows what else. I've given most of it away to a couple of churches and took the tax write-off for a donation. I had 6 wisdom teeth. I remember the oral surgeon touching my cheek and saying "are you all right, baby doll?" I also remember asking what time it was. The whole process took 25 minutes. My niece was a cryer -- when hers were removed, her now husband said she cried the whole way home over nothing.

    Raquel Strikes Again

    It is someone established recruiting her own child, so no idea how much recruitment potential there is in general. I wonder if they're trying to hit the GenZ/young Millenial crowd who would have been too young the last go around. Because that's the only way Raquel isn't pulling from her mom's customers.

    JRod 108: Selling the Grifted House

    Sister and I are still clearing out parents' home after they passed. They lived there over 45 years. They had a lot of stuff, they not only kept everything, they stored stuff brought from their first house, stuff from both sets of grandparents, things from my aunt when she downsized, and somehow managed to get a few things belonged to my maternal grandmother's best friend. My mother, in particular, was bothered about leaving all these things for us and, to her credit, she made an effort to get rid of things plus bother my dad to get rid of some really big things like the broken down VW in the garage and the camper but in the end there was still so much plus my Mom got too tired to keep going. Towards the end they often forgot they owned something so there were multiples of things that filled up the space left by the big things. When we moved into our current home 23 years ago, we found we did not have enough closet space for all the stuff we had. Even though it was more square footage compared to our last apartment, there was a lot less storage space. Apartment had walk in closets, the current home did not. Therefore there were boxes in corners of every room in the house. At first I was looking for furniture like hutches and shelving units to store it all then it hit me that we simply had too much. I have been decluttering on and off since then, but after dealing with my parent's home I have been a lot more ruthless in tossing/donating things. And if something goes in, something must come out. I am constantly on the prowl for what I can pitch next.

    I’ve read that millennials are less into “stuff.” Which I totally believe as the oldest millennial.

    Yeah apparently one needs to have sex 5-6 times at least- or more- no wonder Jill always looks so exhausted- I wonder if they kept that going in Central America

    Meghan and Harry 2: Now with Archie

    I think the biggest issue with Harry & Meghan is that they want all the perks of royal life, with none of the downfalls, i.e. press and intrusion into their private lives. The reports came out that they went 2.7 million pounds over budget on their home the day before they said "sorry not sorry but Archie's Christening will be private", they want it both ways and on the tax payer dime people will be pissed. Being old like I am, I recall Prince Andrew and to a lesser extent Prince Edward had troubles transitioning into adulthood/royal responsibility from their semiprivate upbringings. These two, much like Harry were raised very differently than Charles and William, the latter 2 have been raised, since birth, as the heir apparent(s) and having the weight of the monarchy on them, they get essentially everything, and everyone else will be at their discretion, that puts a lot of tension on a family. Harry & Andrew, as the 2nd born sons, had a lot of jealousy that their older brothers were the golden sons and they were essentially the "spare heir" When Harry was born he and Will were literally dubbed, at one point, "The Heir & the spare". Can you imagine being labeled the spare sibling, and knowing you have no real use unless your brother dies before having children? Now this was much more so for Andrew than it was for Harry, mostly because of Diana, but she died when Harry was SO YOUNG, and to Charles's credit he did step up and finally become the father BOTH boys needed, but Harry did lose his chief champion in his mother at 12 years old. Edward being so far removed from the throne by the time he reached royal responsibility age (Will & Harry as well as Bea & Engine had all been born) that he knew he was just along for the ride. Add all this to the fact that the Queen with either kick off or be forced to retire in the next few years and Philip could be dead any day now (he's 97 FFS) and Prince Charles wants to kick his brothers & sister, and their families off the Royal dole and Andrew is having a fit as his girls have the HRH title and haven't really had to work. For their parts Anne & Edward seem to be keeping their heads down, doing the work their parents ask and have the kids prepping (for Edwards teenage children) or been prepped (Anne's adult children) for the real world, and Harry must wonder if William won't do the same to him some day. There will be a lot of growing pains as Elizabeth & Philip pass on. Andrew & Edward weren't born until more than a decade after Elizabeth took the throne, and I doubt Charles and Anne remember much what it was like before she was queen. QE has been on the throne for more than 65 years, and it is what much of her country and most of her own family, has ever known. For Andrew and Edward their entire upbringing may be taken from them as well as their parents, depending on what kind of asshole Charles turns into when he FINALLY becomes King.
