Does anyone have any experience with buying a home's furniture with the house?

We are trying to buy a house in Galveston. It's on Airbnb. The furnishings are not conveyed but they are available for sale.

I wonder if there's a method to it?. I really truly have no earthly idea how much it would cost to furnish an entire house. My thought immediately goes to beds and sheets and pillows and bedspreads and mattresses and drapes as being the number one cost. Plus any antiques or wooden furniture?

Although trying to buy every stick of what's needed in a kitchen could really add up a lot too. Pots and pans and dishes and forks and knives and utensils etc.

It's so beautiful. Here's the Airbnb listing:

If you liked/loved Ozark, Poldark, Little Fires Everywhere, Love (Netflix)

Wanted (Australian), Borgen (Danish), Dead to me, Anatomy of a Scandal, The Affair, Shameless, & Downton Abbey to name a few, what would you recommend to watch next?

I know not a genre, but would describe as a mix of "family ( seemingly normal people), epic, intrigue, romance, maybe murder ( not the CSI kind), dramedy, politics, revenge, if foreign dubbed easy to understand, no subtitles, cheer for the little guy."

Tall order, eh. We have probably seen it all

Good compilation CNN: A long list of investigations and lawsuits involving Donald Trump


Trump is being sued by lawmakers and police officers, his niece Mary Trump, magazine writer E. Jean Carroll, whose rape accusation he denies, and his former attorney Michael Cohen who's already served jail time. The New York state attorney general and Manhattan district attorney are looking at his company. And several congressional committees still want to see his tax returns.

At link, status of:

* January 6: House select committee investigation

* January 6: Lawsuits by Democratic lawmakers and police officers

* White House documents: Moved to Mar-a-Lago? Classified? Flushed?

Trump Org grand jury term expires this week - not extended :(



A special grand jury seated to hear evidence in the Manhattan district attorney’s investigation into the Trump Organization’s finances is set to expire at the end of the week and will not be extended, people familiar with the investigation tell CNN.

The six-month special grand jury, which was empaneled in October, heard evidence late last year from several witnesses, including reporters to whom former President Donald Trump boasted about his personal wealth. Presentations to the grand jury were halted earlier this year after Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg was sworn into office and raised concerns about the strength of the evidence.

The decision to not extend the jury’s term is not surprising because prosecutors already had pulled back from presenting evidence, but the development does indicate that over the past few months, the investigation has not escalated to the point that Bragg’s calculus has changed.

Bragg, who has stressed that the investigation is continuing following the abrupt and public departure of two senior prosecutors, said earlier this month there is no “magic” to the special grand jury’s timetable and that his office could present

Wonder if SS responded re sweep of party hqtrs - VP Harris was there.

I was checking in on progress being made, on finding that person that left the pipe bombs on 1-5-21. Nothing yet . But did find this letter from Senator Johnson to the Secret Service asking for information as to why their security sweep didn't work since Vice President Harris was there


In order to better understand this potential lapse in security, I request that you provide the following information:

When did the Secret Service conduct their sweep of the DNC headquarters prior to then-Vice President-elect Harris’ arrival on January 6, 2021?

What specific areas did Secret Service sweep in and around the DNC headquarters?

Please explain why Secret Service did not discover the pipe bomb reportedly located “next to a park bench” near the DNC headquarters during their sweep?[8]

Has Secret Service conducted an internal review of this potential lapse in security? If so, please provide all documents and communications associated with that review.

Has this potential lapse in security been referred to the Department of Homeland Security Office of Inspect General? If not, please explain why.

Please provide this information by March 1, 2022. Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Saw a bunch of billboards today. FG coming to Austin in May? 14th?

Unbelievable to put one up that said "Austin loves President Trump". Call bullshit on that.

Actually, think it's sickening that he even says "President"....Jimmy Carter doesn't. Bill Clinton doesn't. No one except him.
