US Politics Cafe? What does that mean? Well, I email the GM Mod and asked if we could continue to have a place where we could discuss, amongst ourselves, the problems that crop up time to time here on the US Politics Forum. The previous post that was locked yesterday had sort of turned into this. And as a place where we could converse with each other without the pretense of hard left or hard right positions interfering with our communication and the good friends we have developed on both sides of the fence.

The GM thought this might be a good idea and approved it today.

So here we go. We have a place to try to work out angst, or just visit amongst ourselves and JOKE around with friends. The Cafe' is now open for us. We just need to keep everything here civil. Can I set your drinks up for you, Buddy? What will you have? Cheers!

Little League game under the lights at 8:00 tonight. Superkid called to ask if I would take him to his brother's game. He told my wife she didn't have to go, because the game would probably end after her bedtime. ROTFL! I am NEVER going to let her forget that one.

Wow...I know we're still in a drought here, but it is BEAUTIFUL springtime weather in Southern CA!

Hope you're all enjoying your day wherever that is!

Grand daughter (oldest, but least athletic of the kids) had her season opener last night. She had a bases loaded single in the first and three walks thereafter. Superkid doesn't play his first until 4/25.

My wife sold her share of a partnership this year. It is spread over three years.


I had to take it to a tax cpa to process the new forms.

Checks went in the mail last night to Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota and the good old USA.

Mom dropped superkid off after kindergarten today asking me to supervise his homework.

Me: they give homework in Kindergarten?
Mom: It is voluntary.
Me: what is your homework?
K: write to 100.
Me: lined paper or blank.
K: blank
K: more paper please (six HUGE numbers on paper).
Me: Don't write so big. (he writes so small I cannot read the numbers.)
Me: Write normal
K: Can I watch TV, if I do?
Me: OK, 1 show
K: 2 shows
Me: no, 1 show
K: OK, don't tell mom (he only gets 1 hour of TV per day)
Me: I will tell mom. (he gives me his "evil eye")
K writes his numbers, watches 1 show, and walks home.
Me: Lord have mercy!

What in the world is a "digital vapor cigarette"??? LOL!

I don't smoke, but just on the name I would run away from that like the plague!

They must be paying Gasbuddies TONS of cash, because their ads have taken over the mobile app as well as the desktop screen...
