    Andrea Mills of YouTube infamy has cancer

    There may be a metaphor here...she spewed poisonous bile then died of it. I have no tolerance for attacks on the Sandy Hook parents. I do have some sympathy for her having to leave the family she loved without warning...but I have a lot more sympathy for the kids. Tom may have been getting pressure from multiple directions to take the money and donations while they're available. It sounded that way to me in earlier videos.

    Dillards 79: Sex Education on the Fly

    I think it’s great that he’s not quiverfull and not putting Jill’s body through risky pregnancy after risky pregnancy, but I do hope that he and Jill have come to their new (or maybe not new?) beliefs together and that he hasn’t pushed the headship card to make her go against her beliefs and get more sex.

    George’s School Curriculum... Training for a King!

    That sounds like a lovely school. I wish there was one like that around me and I could afford it! It actually sort of sounds like the Charlotte Mason method that is popular in the American homeschool movement. It is based on a British educator's ideas, so that might be why. The people I know who use it are always teaching French, studying music, ballet and art.

    Britain and Brexit business

    The issue with Ireland is that there are still some people kicking about the UK who would like to see GFA ripped up. They've been sitting quietly until now when all this nonsense has made them feel like their views are anything other than utterly abhorrent. These are usually the same morons who hark back to the days when we had an empire and completely gloss over the mass genocides and slavery that helped build it. I despair of these fools. Plus, there is a view among people in the South of England that anyone from the North, Wales, Scotland or Ireland is less intelligent, less educated and less of a person than they are. Just be Scottish in London for a day and see how many people will pretend they don't understand you when you talk or tell you you can't pay for things in Scottish notes. Bitch, I shall just take my £20 elsewhere! But seriously, it sucks.
  6. @Someone Out There @theotherelise I think it's only true for fighter pilots, not regular pilots. But there have been studies showing that fighter pilots have daughters more often than sons.

    I think Cathy has a lot to do with that. She probably sat him down and said ‘get your head out of your a__?’ (Maybe not those exact words.) Get a career and limit the size of your family.
  8. I don't think many people would be! What on earth were they thinking? I'd be interested to see what the translation of the word statutes is; to me it implies modeling their laws after the Egyptian or Canaanites
  9. Heathen that I am, I was educated by Jesuits, and graduated summa cum laude. I guess they taught me very well, and at the time of my graduation my father was an Assembly of God minister. A life-long friend graduated with me, then went on to -- horrors! -- Jesuit law school. She's now a guardian at litem who would tear Beccy and Cam a new one. He wouldn't know what hit him if he had to deal with her.

    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.
  11. https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/prince-george-upcoming-school-curriculum-165402799.html These parents aren’t paying for Juice boxes and Finger painting for damn sure! I suppose George must have the education early for unique life.

    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

    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?

    Andrea Mills of YouTube infamy has cancer

    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.
  17. 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.

    Andrea Mills of YouTube infamy has cancer

    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.

    Bro Gary Hawkins 11: Bro likes his food

    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?

    I do the same thing, I HATE watching second hand embarrassment, I either FF or stop watching all together.

    Raquel Strikes Again

    On my facebook feed, I have 1 extended family member shilling YL. (homeschooling, home birth, natural everything, anti-vaxxer). 1 coworker shilling Younique. 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.
