Trump's former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, and a former business associate, Rick Gates, have been indicted on charges of conspiracy against the United States, money laundering and other financial charges.  This is just the tip of the iceberg!

Jim Vance was a class act, professional, honest.  Was lucky enough to meet him up at NBC4, great smile, that laugh, tall and so fine!  Rest in peace Vance.

#336729 What are you reading?

Posted by MissuTam on 19 July 2017 - 09:15 AM

[Kevin Kwan] I read them when they came out (Lainey's recommendation) and downloaded them again from my library when I was traveling in Singapore in November. I love! Great summer/vacation reads. Also, they're filming the first book and the cast looks awesome!!!!

Finished Crazy, Rich Asians and China Rich Girlfriend.  I have Rich People Problems on hold at the library.

This might be the first time since Harry Potter I've looked forward to a film adaptation this much!!!

 

 

Hum... you've perked my interest.

 

Have the book on hold at my library.

Is the E TV series 'The Arrangement' really about the midget and his ex?  




#336186 Divorce in 2017 - who'll do it, next

Her wealth is estimated at 150 to 175 million...it is not a billion but she can pay the rent  :) .   I would not be able to live in that strict, traditional culture.  My aunt married a native here in the US and they relocated over there for several years. She  was not allowed to leave the house without a male relative accompanying her, not allowed to drive, not allowed to work...she returned to the US with her 4 year old  daughter when the inlaws came to her house with a second wife candidate. Again, I am surprised Janet made it five years.

 

 

I recommend the move, "Not Without My Daughter."  Sounds like it was on point to what your aunt went through.  1991 Sally Field.

 

 

Follow-up...the daughter is now a physician, speaks fluent Farsi and translates for the government.  The husband came back to the US with my aunt...he never married a second wife.

They cited "cultural differences".  Janet and Wissam come from very different worlds. I am surprised the marriage lasted five years.

I am still coming to grips with this.  As for the rural voters....Forgive them for they know not what they do.  The worst is yet to come.

I was thinking I'd have to head to bed early on Tuesday and just wake up to whatever - because I can't handle the stress of staying up late watching returns come in....

 

I did early voting last week.  Long lines. Terrified of losing our democracy to a Putin loving political neophyte.

Ted Cruz on Donald Trump:  I'm not a 'servile puppy dog'....

I do not like this guy but he is the only one with the cojones to stand up to Trump.  The rest of them fell in line like lemmings.

Ann Morgan Guilbert has died.  She was Rob & Laura Petrie's next door neighbor Millie on the old Dick Van Dyke Show.  But I loved her as Grandma Yetta on The Nanny.
