I agree that he plays some pretty skeevy characters; but he must be a heck of an actor, because he appears to be a genuinely great guy.

Yes, I was a teen in the '70s.

I'm with Morning, "Teen Swoon" otherwise known as "Bubblegum Rockers" sounds good. The line up for me would include: Bobby Sherman, David Cassidy, Donny Osmond (well all the Osmonds - someone has to actually play some instruments Jay on drums, Alan on keyboard, Wayne and Merrill on guitar). I'd also include Linda Ronstadt and a featured performance by the Bay City Rollers .

Oooh, I'm ashamed to admit I had forgotten Bobby! Of course he'd be included in the band.

BTW, Bobby isn't looking bad even now.

Sorry, didn't know. Then Christian Bale is perfect for the part of Don, Jr. or Jared Kushner. Your call as to which role he's better suited for.

I'm still flummoxed by who should be cast as Eric Trump. Any actors in the appropriate age range that would accurately portray Eric Trump, preferably ones who have a history of playing skeevy, sleazoids?

Apologies, was away for 2 weeks on holiday.

The space-time continuum has been bent, not broken, but bent.

A Monopoly game has been arranged using the following 8 pieces:

- thimble
- car
- dog
- wheelbarrow
- top hat
- boot
- iron
- horse (rearing with rider)

You are to select the last 8 leaders of your country and assign them a piece to play. What pieces do you assign your leaders and why?

I'm interested, personally, from the responses from my fellow Canucks.

Well, I'd give Trump the wheelbarrow, so he can scoop up all the sh** he's been spewing.

Last 8 Canadian leaders? I must hasten to google to count back accurately : Okay:

- thimble Kim Campbell - because she was the token woman in the bunch and didn't really do much of anything except get to be the token woman PM
- car Martin because he drove the ship of state with class
- dog Mulroney because he was a dirty lying cheating dog
- wheelbarrow John Turner because he was barely there and this is the last piece left after I did everyone else
- top hat Pierre Trudeau - because he was always elegant and classy (even when he wasn't )
- boot Harper because he tried to rule, and I mean rule with giant jackboots on
- iron Chretien because he provided smooth leadership and I liked his style
- horse (rearing with rider) [Justin Trudeau - because his detractors pretend they think he's too good looking to be a real leader and he could be on the cover of a romance novel but also because those who do like him feel he's finally setting the country on the right track with his leadership

iron - Gerald Ford for his flat, monotone voice. (this was the last one I assigned - was running out of ideas)
dog - Jimmy Carter - because of the raw deal he got
wheelbarrow - Ronald Regan for the load of $#!~ he gave us
thimble - George H. W. Bush; that's about all I think of him - a thimblefull.
top hat - Bill "Slick Willie" Clinton for his song-and-dance
car - George W. Bush - to celebrate his "successful" oil business
horse (rearing with rider) - Barack Obama for his successful campaign to bring us out of the recession
boot - Donald Trump. I'd love to give him the boot.

Justin Trudeau is one of the things that makes me wonder if Canada is enacting a long-running revenge scheme against the USA. I mean, you guys are ruled by Justin Trudeau, a politician who makes me continually want to renew my commitment to heterosexuality, you have Universal Healthcare, AND you consider an eleven-week election cycle to be your longest ever.

Meanwhile in the US, we're ruled by a rancid Cheeto who wants to make our piecemeal healthcare system, which already screws over a lot of people, even worst, and eleven weeks wouldn't have even gotten us to New Hampshire.

Have to say, in terms of revenge schemes, well-played, Canada. Rather than go for a military victory, you accepted that living well is life's revenge and went from there.

Feel free to gloat in whatever manner you deem fit. I just have to ask, "Is this about all those hippies who fled north during the Vietnam War?" I don't know what to do about it, but you can stop punishing us for it.

Trudeau - top hat, because that is what one wears while doing a pirouette.
Turner - dog, because he used to walk his dogs as a boy with WLM King
Mulroney - the thimble, as he wore a lot of stylish clothes
Campbell - Car, because after her election the entire caucus would fit in a corvette.
Chretien - wheelbarrow, for all the grift his ministers carried into Quebec.
Martin - the shoe, he was Minister of finance
Harper - the horse, being from the home of the Stampede
Trudeau - iron, he looks good, freshly pressed

My holiday ends Monday, I'll be back to posting normally by then.

Good one. Salty if it's something to eat in front of the TV and especially if it's being shared. A fave around here, an oldie but a goodie, is nachos with salsa and cheese. Personal favourite snack food though has to be chocolate. For my sins there is always a bar of chocolate "hidden" somewhere in this house .

How about savory? I try not to eat much sugar or salt because genetics.

My favorite snack at the moment has some salt, but not enough to make my medical professionals "tsk tsk" at me. Bagel chips and cream cheese and carrots. Yum!

Salty Caramel Bars. I don't even want to learn how to make them because I've put on enough weight lately. Lucky me, they are damned expensive.
