That's pretty much how I felt about it too. I miss the snow and cold weather but don't know if I'm still up to it. Don't ski, however. I merely want to drink in the atmosphere again.

As you tell, they've been at it for years, since they headed that way, they picked the most familiar spot.

I  guess that long before the movie, my mother decided to go and take me along to hear the Trapp family singers. Nostalgia for her too although the New World variety. I think that she envisioned our family would all play musical instruments as well but it didn't quite work out that way. Of course, we lived in a part of the country where all the  waitresses in our many German restaurants dressed like the von Trapps on tour,the dirndls, the vests,the poofy blouses(on the other hand, if you went to a very old fashioned older establishments,you had an entire male staff on the restaurant service, formally dressed, with a white napkin-towel folded neatly over the left arm).

As far as the snow, which used to snow us in every once in awhile as far as traffic was concerned, we never had a school-day called on account of snow. My sister may or may not still cross-country ski. To ready us for the practicalities of hill skiing, our Dad got us used to the feel by tobaggoning and bob-sledding. It was just part of our climate.

I wonder if it had anything to do with the "dead pool" sponsored by a Detroit radio station,

I did a double take on this photo, as it almost looks like K-Fed.

I think this may be going just a bit too far with the doggone return policy?

I can only assume this is the dog in question.

Obama: good news and bad
BLACK Democratic candidate Barack Obama may be having trouble closing the gap in the polls with Hillary Clinton - but he's close behind in the money stakes. While Mrs Clinton has raised $35m for the primaries, he has raised $32m. Experts estimate that a sum of more than $1bn will be spent on electioneering before the next President is chosen.

The bad news for Obama (above) is that he turns out to be a relative of Dick Cheney. While researching her latest book, Lynne Cheney, wife of the Vice-President, discovered that her husband is eighth cousins with Obama. Campaign spokesman Bill Burton responded: "Obviously, Dick Cheney is sort of the black sheep of the family."

Obama's family ties with the Bush administration don't stop with Cheney. According to an article in the Chicago Sun-Times last September, Obama is also an 11th cousin of the President George W Bush. The two share a 17th century Massachusetts relative.

Hudgens not fired from Disney after scandal:

http://omg.yahoo.com/rep-confirms-hudgens-not-dumped-by-disney/news/3187

I admit I was curious, but I don't see what the fuss is all about,

Maybe Disney should look for a Victoria's Secret tie-in?

Same basic photo - but no clothes.  She's 17, that's the controversey.

But, Disney is not the same company it was 25 years ago...there's too much money to be made off of her yet and she hasn't raised her price, so why should they drop her...

Rumor I heard was Miley Cyrus playing the part, but I found that problematic, as she is so identified with H Montana.  Some other Disney dude (in a show) was to play Efron's part.

We shall see.  Big, big news in my house, anyway (my 6-year old saw the headline - thankfully it said NUDE, not NAKED, the word she knows - lol).

Dzimas, that's a different dog than the one in question.  The Iggy dog is kind of ratty-looking adorable and all dark.  It's a Brussels Griffon mix, if that's any help.   The rescues from which I've adopted animals all made it clear, both in writing and verbally, that if things don't work out, the animal has to go back to the rescue.  (Some pounds, on the other hand, just seem to take the money and hand over the leash.)  The horse rescue where I volunteer not only requires the return of a horse that isn't working out, it requires the adopter to send in a photo once a year and sign off to allow visits by authorized rescue members to check on things.  If Ellen didn't pay attention during the adoption process, that's really her fault.  Personally, it bothered me that she kept referring to the dog as "it" in her pleas, but that's me.

That being said, the rescue people came off like Nazi storm troopers and could have handled things much better, politically.  It seems like the rescue people are all about the dog's welfare, which is great and which I understand; but they shot themselves in the foot with strongarm tactics.  This didn't have to be the big deal that it turned into.  But then, I guess we'd have no content for the evening news, what with that boring old war going on, and the economy tanking and stuff.

I wish I had some comment on the nekkid teenager, but I just can't seem to summon up anything.

The dog in question, Iggy Pup.

How about that the government should be seeking whoever was responsible for the pics hitting the net.

Well, why don't you say that?   Oh, I guess you did.  I don't necessarily agree.

Don't agree?

What purpose do these phots serve?

Civil liberties, eh?

I guess it would also then be OK if it was your daughter/granddaughter exposed.

Now, about Sharpton.........................

Well, gee, I must have missed the picture where the gun was held to her head while the shots were being taken.  What purpose do the pictures serve?  Why not ask Ms. Hudgens, since she's the person posing for the picture?   

I'm surprised that anyone these days, especially anyone famous, would have any picture taken that they're not comfortable with the public seeing.  Because odds are, it's going to get out there.  And the more you have to lose (a juicy Disney contract, for example), the better the odds get that it will get out there, and quickly.
