Happy Anniversary, Magic Fayre and RadioMattM!!

I was waiting until midnight to post this, hey we can have two celebrations, can't we? The more the merrier!

Champagne!



Croquembouche!



And a romantic song ~





With love and affection from your friends here at The Table.

The 10th

Happy 10th Wedding Anniversary husband!  The traditional gift is tin/aluminum, which I can live without :)  I'm allergic to tin and I have enough foil to last a year.

Ed the Weatherman once said it would be all over by the 5th!  His predictions were almost as accurate as the weather forecasters...not!

Character and Class

Ben Carson didn't hear his name called at the debate and was left hanging in the entryway. The other candidates walked right past him. Not Trump. He immediately sized up the situation and responded in the classiest way possible. He stood with Dr. Carson. Then he delayed his own entrance so Dr. Carson could accept the crowd applause.

Well done sir. VERY well done.

Shalom Part 2

Jerusalem.  Street life, new city.



Youth hostel in a busy shopping area.


Yum, bakery in the Ben Yehuda district.  Can't imagine how long it takes to stack the biscuits like that.  It would be a good point on your resume, you could describe one of your virtues as "attention to detail" and "organised."





Interesting to note that the "Golden Arches" M appears to the right hand side of the McDonald's name which I am assuming is because Hebrew reads right to left. I believe the M normally appears to the left of the McDonald's name in English where we read left to right.


Guy sitting atop a tree playing a "recorder"? Pan, up a tree.

Scumbag of the Year



I can't type what I'd like to have happen to this smarmy twat. You can see highlights of his non-testimony here. I was applauding Congressman Cummings statements (something that seldom happens).

And now a world from our sponsor

I remember when I was young that my family enjoyed the commercials from Hamm's Beer, not that we ever drank the stuff.

When we returned from Germany in 1966, the first Hamm's commercial was this one:



It is nice to see it after all these years.

Jeopardy Fail

Happy to post non political stuff as discussed in lady red's post.

Matt and I PVR Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy and then watch it together while eating dinner, trying to solve the puzzles and answer the questions.  Tonight on Jeopardy there was a category called "House Proud" and the question was basically "what is it that the British call a caravan."  The returning champ answered " an RV", Alex answered, no that's wrong, the answer is "mobile home".

Er, Jeopardy, a British "caravan" is not a mobile home. It's an RV or a motor home or a travel trailer. I see some reference on line to a "static caravan" which looks like a mobile home but believe me no Brit would call a caravan a mobile home.

 Jeopardy = Fail.

A Change Of Pace

Things I'd love to see this year on TCKT:

More gardening, flowers, plants, and trees. More travel stories and pictures. More short stories. More stories and pictures about our animals/pets. More uplifting posts that restore our faith in our fellow man. More religious posts, of all sorts. More music. Much more music! More hunting/fishing/hiking/guns/fly rods/boating. Photography, lots of photography. More family chit chat. More funny stories from home or work. And food! We can't forget food and drink!

And....

Less politics. I'm weary, and I think you all are too. I'd like to make this place a refuge from all the deafening noise of the world for awhile.

What say you, knights and knightesses of the Order of the Kitchen Chair?

Aye, or nay?
