Potential Christmas trees for every sized home.

Forget equality.

deborah said...

Charlie Brown Christmas tree.

edutcher said...

Beautiful shot for the Christmas season, Madame.

Very apropos.

Those long walks (or skis) in the country brighten all the lives you touch.

Lem said...

Excellent.. I got my flying jet.

Coketown said...

What is that orange thing in the background?

Well it's not a very sodium vibe!

Lem said...

When we were told we would be emigrating to the US, a long time passed while I often spend time looking up at the high flying jets.

A pictorial representation of the last, dwindling vestige of President Zero's already minimal gravitas.

Audible bike commute Christmas decorations video today.

Lawgiver said...

Glad I don't live in snow country. I hate to shovel it.

JAL said...

Hah Lawgiver. Snow schmow.

I just on whimsy looked at the weather forcast for Madison.

Professor M'am ... (I can call you m'am, right?) hope you and the Meadester have everything you need to keep warm and fed without going out.

It' going to be coooooold where you are in a couple days.

deborah said...

That's a sweet vid, rh.

Night Must Fall

Cold, cold, the steel blue snow,
Untouched by the late sun glow;
A dread omen of what will come
When glow to utter cold succumb.

MamaM said...

Our eldest left MI and home today, to begin a job on the road with an Ohio based company.

A glimmer of sun, open fields and a song in the air: Christmas Present.

thanks to RH and AA for delivery.

traditionalguy said...

Rembrandt returns. Are Althouse's forbears Dutch?

Lem said...

The red sox have given the fans a Yankee size Christmas present..

Left fielder Carl Crawford and first basement Adrian Gonzalez..

I cant wait.

James said...

Was that shot with a cell phone?

Trooper York said...

Carl Crawford?

Dude they would have been better off signing Broderick Crawford.

Trooper York said...

Hey is that a bunny in the background?

ricpic said...

The Yanks stagger after Lee. Cause without Lee they are history, and know it. Get it? Stagger? Lee? Is that clever or what?...so's ya fadder.

garage mahal said...

Calm before the storm.

We dined at the Glass Nickel. The 9 yr old fist pumped the arrival of a fresh and much awaited plate of Nickel Nuggets to the table. Yesss...

The 2 yr old rocked a bunch of new dance moves to Chuck Berry, daring me to keep up with them. What a great night to be alive.

so what's this Bill Clinton taking over a press conference with our sitting President? I'm afraid to look.

Misty said...

Is this where I mention that it's in the 70's here in Phoenix?

This is what I see on my way home. It's from a month ago, but it looked the same today.

https://mistysbloggingkingdom.wordpress.com/2010/10/30/on-my-way-home/

There are trees in my neighborhood that are finally turning golden; I'm going to try to take photos this weekend.

TGIF

Misty said...

I just saw the press conference with Bill Clinton - wow, BHO must really be desperate. Wonder what Hillary thinks of this.

Also, forgot to say this - Ann, nice photo as always!

pm317 said...

Haha, check the headline on Drudge and then watch this!
'I don't want to get her mad, please go' (~I will take the hard questions here) LOL. Obama votes present again, then the smartest, oratorically magnificent president takes over.

Julius said...

Check out this briefing with Philip J. Crowley, Assistant Secretary of State. He explains why the U.S. will not regard Julian Assanage as a journalist or whistleblower. It's down toward the end of the transcript.

Mr. Assange obviously has a particular political objective behind his activities, and I think that, among other things, disqualifies him as being considered a journalist.

...he’s not a journalist. He’s not a whistleblower. And there – he is a political actor. He has a political agenda.

You ought to be concerned, Professor! You seem to always have a political agenda... So if it were to come down to it, your blogging would not be considered by our government to be "journalism". The government seems to have created this new category of "political actor" and seems to be claiming it trumps any claim on being a journalist.

I think this is important. Many people have been waiting for a long time for our government to decide who is entitled to the protections normally accorded to journalists, and it seems that our Establishment is taking a very narrow view.

There's nothing more "pragmatic" than running the fuck away when you're getting your ass kicked.
Gotta give Althouse credit for finding that virtue among all of Obama's faults.

Fen said...

There's nothing more "pragmatic" than running the fuck away when you're getting your ass kicked.

Or fleeing the scene after knocking a 100-year-old woman to the pavement.

Unless you are dying of cancer and your husband has been unfaithful. Then you get a pass.

Fen said...

Misty: I just saw the press conference with Bill Clinton - wow, BHO must really be desperate.

Didn't you find yourself filled with hope that it was a permanent change?

I know I did.

Wonder what Hillary thinks of this.

Realization that she may have to bump him off. Just to be safe.

Doug Wright said...

Om!

But, is it really necessary to sit cross-legged while saying: "Om?"

Cheers.

Fen said...

"I don't want to make her mad, please go," Clinton told Obama.

Ha. Obama asked permission to leave, Clinton granted it.

I think Obama is going to quit.

Trooper York said...

I remember this same secenario on the Honeymooners when Norton had to run upstairs to Trixie and left Ralph to explain everything to Alice.

Everything you need to learn about life you can learn from the Honeymooners.

Neither smart nor oratorically magnificent. Without the media to front for him, Willie would be sharing a cell with Edwin Edwards.

Big Mike said...

That would make one heck of a desktop background. Thanks, Professor.

It is possible you may not understand what I am about to say. Where I come from, we have a song that says 'God is revealed to you only as much as you want..' Now Clinton is not God but boy, is he smart. It takes one to know one and it takes guts to acknowledge the truth.

Lem said...

Hey Trooper are we having a cold one?

I'm having a Heineken..

Trooper York said...

Eggnog Lem. Wirh some rum.

Mount Gay rum as a matter of fact.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Trooper York said...

Wirh.....hee,hee.

Trooper York said...

This thread is ripe for an Lem musical overnight spectacular. Just sayn'

Trooper York said...

Here's a little Celia to get you started.

Trooper York said...

You people!

Lem said...

Lem musical overnight spectacular.

I'm not going to be like Obama and just walk away while you two take over ;)

Sure...

If Willie had been that smart, he wouldn't have gotten in that much trouble. And he would have realized he had all kinds of opportunity to craft that legacy he wanted all his life if he had faced up to the challenges of his administration, instead of sweeping them under the rug for the next POTUS.

Lem said...

No Trooper, I like La sonora matansera. May she RIP

Lem said...

Wouldnt it be good - Nik kershaw

This song sounds like democrats.

Irene said...

Lem, I saw that movie with my parents when I was a kid. I remember feeling uncomfortable being in the same room with them when Sophia Loren performed that number.

It was like, "Wow. Is that what adults do??"

Lem said...

At least you can say you were there.. I wasn't at all :(

Irene said...

One more before I call it a night.

(I have to run downstairs and tell my Mom that Bill Clinton is running the country again.)

Lem said...

Here is a little something performed live from Troopers neck of the woods..

Blues Before Sunrise - T-Bone Walker

Lem said...

This song has a GouchoMarxist flavor to it.

I Don't Want Anybody That Wants Me - MAKE OUT

in the sense of the famous quote.. nothing else..

Lem said...

I found another Waters of March version.. sorry for the repetition but I love this song.

Waters of March - Basia

Lem said...

I cant believe I called Althouse the Tokyo Rose of Blogging.

She does annoys the hell out of some people.. I like that.. and I suspect a lot of people do.

Maybe its like she polled.. It makes them/us up their/our game.

btw, the correct answer was - Yes. Other commenters will up their game if they get the feeling it's a competition.

Lem said...

also... sorry i posted the Radiohead lead singer singing so badly.. I didn't check the whole video where he had to raise his voice.. it was awful.

Lem said...
