RE" The Alabama SC ruling that frozen embryo's are children ...

Next up it will be illegal to masturbate in red states.

This has to be the most stupid and ill conceived (pardon the pun) law ever in the history of laws.
Just listen to this wording:
The ruling pointed to the Alabama Constitution Section 36.06, which argues that each person was made in God’s image, meaning each life has an incalculable value that “cannot be wrongfully destroyed without incurring the wrath of a holy God.”

“Section 36.06 recognizes that this is true of unborn human life no less than it is of all other human life ― that even before birth, all human beings bear the image of God, and their lives cannot be destroyed without effacing his glory,” the ruling stated, referring to the Alabama Constitution’s Section 36.06.

OMFG.

Why is it that every time we get a COLA increase, we also get an increase in Medicare premium charges?

This was a rhetorical question. I already know the answer.

I've been watching the SB for most years than most of you have been alive...

Those ads last nite were the most mundane that I've ever seen. And, quite honestly, that wasn't a bad thing. Also, there were so many unexpected advertisers last nite. How the hell did some of those companies come up with that $$?
Oh, and this 67 year old and his 72 year old wifey really enjoyed the halftime show.

It is so irritating that I can't get to DU without shutting down my VPN.

This doesn't happen ALL the time and ONLY happens with Firefox. Any suggestions on how to fix this?
I have no issues with any other sites or addresses.

Common sense concerning the Taylor Swift uproar from an unexpected source...

I never expected Cowherd to go out on THIS limb.

Keto diet observation and question

The ONLY thing that I find difficult about Keto is eating enough fat without overdoing it on the protein. Unless I really, really try hard, I eat more of the latter than the former every day. And I know that isn't good.
Any thoughts from you who have done this successfully?
I know all about fat bombs and bullet proof coffee, but If I add those to my diet, my calories sky rocket and at 67, too many calories is NOT a good thing. I know by eating sardines for supper, I can keep the protein and fat more in line, but dayum, that gets old quickly.
I also don't do the heavy cream thing for the same reason(as much as I love it). The calories outweigh the benefits.
Thanks for any insights.

When I die, this worldly existence of mine will miss, more than anything else,

the joy and wonderment of listening to music.

Music travels all around my body.
Now I can say it's living right through me.
Listening to music puts me in a good mood;
It makes me want to stand up and start to groove.

Music can make me forget all of my pain.
It brings out the sun when I can only see the rain.
I put on my headphones and play all of my songs.
I could listen to it all day long.

Music takes me to another place,
Higher than the sky and far away from the space.
There's nothing to compare to it in the whole world.
It wouldn't even be better than my favorite girl.

Music can teach you many lessons,
Like stand up for your rights and all the good reasons.
I know there are people who think the same way
Because they know music lives in us every day.

Jbizzy. "Music Is Everything."

Just my opinion but I wish Ackman and Buck

Could announce just ONE game impartially. They just can't.
