If the queen is still ticking on 4 drinks a day, that's good enough for me.  That's like 8 for my weight, I'm sure.

  Who was John Snows Father?
Rhaegar Targaryan, Daenarys's oldest brother was Snow's father. Lyanna Stark - Ned's sister - was Snow's mother. Lyanna bound Ned to a deathbed oath to protect Snow from Robert Baratheon, so Ned took Snow as his own bastard.

   Perfect were on the same page but what happened to King Roberts bastard son the blacksmith? He hasn't been seen in a while. I may have missed something.  And doesn't that put Snow in line for the throne?

Same as the old boss.

Our new governor Jon Bell Edwards has had his idea of balancing the budget shot down. He's not giving up, though.

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - With his tax plans repeatedly blocked by House Republicans, Gov. John Bel Edwards is broadening his outreach efforts.

He's trying to build grassroots pressure for permanently stabilizing Louisiana's budget and closing the latest looming, $1 billion-plus shortfall.

The Democratic governor met with business leaders this week to brainstorm budget-balancing ideas. His chief financial adviser, Commissioner of Administration Jay Dardenne, is on the traveling speech circuit, making the case for revenue rather than cuts to close the gap.

The reworked strategy appears aimed at getting community leaders involved in influencing GOP lawmakers who have stymied Edwards' previous attempts to rewrite Louisiana tax laws.

About $1.1 billion in temporary sales taxes are expiring when the next budget year begins on July 1, 2018, a drop-off that is being called the "fiscal cliff."


I was doing some research a while back on the IRS website and found LA to be the 3rd highest taxed state in the nation. Even above Kali. ::pullhair::

I'll have to see if I can find it again.

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) -- Authorities say a man who tried to deposit what he presented as a $1 million bill has been charged with drug possession in Iowa.

A criminal complaint says Sioux City police officers were called to a Northwest Bank branch Thursday to talk to a man who tried to deposit the bill into his account. The officers asked 33-year-old Dennis Strickland whether he had any more of the bills and that a baggie fell out when he emptied a pocket. The complaint says the baggie contained methamphetamine.

The U.S. Treasury Department says it has never produced a $1 million bill.

Iowa court records say Strickland is scheduled to be back in court Monday. His attorney hasn't returned a call Tuesday from The Associated Press.

You can't make this chit up! ::laughonfloor::

I agree with you about Cooper, I respect a guy who does his won thing and doesn't let himself be steered, bullied or pigeon-holed!

And Glen seemed a stand up guy.  Alzheimer's not a fun way to exit.  Seems like he's got a good family too.
