    I hope you feel better soon, fykey. Please check in as you are able to let us know you're OK.

    Is it wrong to hope that Charles breaks sequester long enough to sneeze all over his brother Andrew? Asking for a friend....

    I hear ya, fykey. Spring pollen season has been a real mind f*ck for me this year. Your masked smiley face is a nice touch.

    If there is any positive to this pandemic, it just may be the ways that technology enables us as a society to rethink and retool the ways of the past. Employers seeing that teleworking and flexible work schedules really do work when you've got the right people and tools in place. Hard questions hopefully being asked about outrageous higher education costs for degrees that can in many cases be earned entirely from behind a keyboard. Expanded access to the Internet in rural areas. The possibilities are endless. Like many of you, I've been struggling to deal with elderly parents who continue to go about their daily lives as if nothing has changed. I am no Pollyanna by any means but the desperate clinging to any ray of sunshine is about the only thing keeping me sane right now.

    Harvey Weinstein

    25 years is arguably too short a sentence for his crimes. That said, I am thankful that he got anything at all given the very real possibility of a mistrial if the leaks of the questions the jury were asking are to be believed. I'm not holding my breath that the L.A. County charges will tack too much more on to his overall sentence if he's also convicted there. I can't imagine that there's too much incentive for any additional sentence to run concurrently, but the disconnect between time sentenced and time served in that jurisdiction is pretty great. Still, a good day.

    And yet The Firm still hasn't publicly said boo about Randy Andy.....

    Official 2020 Divorce Poll

    On the other hand, this baby is most likely going to be raised by a troop of nannies which will eliminate a lot of parental stress for Cam and Benji. They waited a long time before starting a family, so the fact that they didn't rush in to this actually gives me relative faith in their odds of going the distance. For now, anyways.

    Excellent choices, fykey!

    He may survive the reported salary loss but I suspect being a social pariah is a much more damning punishment in those circles. Neither punishment is enough in this instance.

    We've got CBS All Access - primarily for sports purposes, though Maxiedad has also been enjoying the Star Trek offerings quite a bit. It's a fantastic way of avoiding the $300 for NFL Sunday Ticket if your rooting interests are for a non local AFC team and you're strategic in what you use for GPS coordinates when you set it up. Or so I've heard. ;)

    Now THIS is a Meghan related distraction from the Prince Andrew allegations that we can all get behind!!!!!! (I'm not implying at all that anybody here is defending Andrew. It's just nice to finally have a Meghan story without any ugly undertones.)

    I also think that Meghan is pregnant again.

    At least it's not another reboot that nobody asked for.......?

    Things that make you say "Hummm....."

    Given that it's held in trust, we will probably never know much more than what's currently been reported.

    A quick Google search will tell what climate zones are suitable for growing an avocado tree if there was any doubt. Meghan certainly strikes me as intelligent enough to handle this. The optimist in me says the press will run out of straws to grasp at some point where Meghan is concerned. The pessimist in me remembers all of the rumors surrounding Diana's demise and hopes things don't end similarly.
