    @Sister Golden Bear: Kind of looks like it.

    Being that it’s an open thread…I went out to get popcorn from my car and saw my landlord walking from his truck. As I walked back in he stopped me, he was holding a piece of paper(I’m thinking, “Oh gawd, not another rent hike…). He says he wants to show the place tomorrow at 5, I said I won’t be home(I have a shoot to go to), he then asks if he can show it without me there. I have two dogs that are just a bit territorial, they don’t particularly like him and might bite strangers in THEIR HOUSE. I just said no.

    He’s never told us that he’s got the place on the market and when he’s showed it before he’s ID’ed perspective buyers as “Building Inspectors”(all building inspectors show up with their young children) and “finance or insurance people”(they at least didn’t show up with their children).

    Ugh. Are landlords in California required to inform their tenants when they are selling their property?

    @MomSense:

    I don’t think there’s a legal requirement, but if you’re having people looking inside tenant’s units, it’s kind of obvious. I really don’t think he understands the whole idea of pets, sort of like the subject of this post. My nickname for him is Trump(yes, I think my landlord is showing early signs of dementia).

    ETA: When I told a friend about the “building inspectors” he Googled my address and sure enough, the place is on the market for $1.1 million.

    @JoyceH: What is a weekend?

    That’s when everyone who is anyone is playing GOLF, by gum! I know that a lot of Trump’s disgruntlement is because he hears the posse closing in on him, but I’m convinced that part of it is because all this stuff with summits and wild fires and similar tedious stuff has seriously interfered with his golfing regime.

    NotMax says:

    @raven

    Also too, surely contemporaneous with the era depicted in that clip,

    …The phrase “something for the weekend” is a British euphemism for a condom (and sometimes for another sexual aid, like an aphrodisiac).

    The OED explains the origins of this colloquialism: “Traditionally, as part of a question that barbers were said to have put to their customers.”

    According to a 1987 citation in the Sunday Times of London, “Barbers would ask our fathers: ‘Anything for the weekend, sir?’ ” Source

    @NotMax:

    Glassman, who died November 4 at age 79, was a Brooklyn-born Jew, a recognized Zen master, a Buddhist trailblazer, a restless mensch and a serial plunger.
    Glassman plunged into aeronautical engineering, into Zen, into leading a Buddhist community, into running a bakery, into growing that bakery into a constellation of social services, into holding spiritual retreats among the homeless and at Holocaust-haunted concentration camps, into writing a book of koans with a Hollywood star, into mourning when his second wife died and into learning to walk and talk again two years ago after a stroke.

    Speaking of shows, as I recall you mentioned liking Detectorists, so a couple of on the gentle side dramedies from New Zealand found on Amazon Prime which you might or might not find a decent pastime. Both innocuous enough that one doesn’t have to be paying strict attention and can have them playing while puttering around doing real stuff. Not recommendations so much as just pointing them out, but not thumbs down either.

    Nothing Trivial – centers around a group of people who make up a team at the local pub quiz. Synopsis.

    Step Dave – Thing I most liked was the way the kids were written. Not in the precocious or overly cutesy way too many American shows tend to depict them, they came across as just real kids, particularly the young son. Synopsis. Also visually amusing because, depending on the camera angle, the guy who plays Dave sometimes looks like he stepped in from Brobdingnag – one of those people who (contradictory as it sounds) could be described as too tall for his height. A few almost too unlikable (the way they’re written, not the way they’re played) supporting characters, though.

    @NotMax: Dish network is fighting with NBC and took them off their lineup so I went ahead and got the 5 day free youtube tv. The picture is the same as Dish but the interface is clunky. It’s supposed to rain all day and I needed an alternative for the SEC Championship game in case the satellite gets knocked off.

    Just out of curiosity, the other day typed “fishing” into the Roku ‘search for channels’ area.

    I think the full list of available channels about that is still not finished loading.

    @JPL: It would be irresponsible not to speculate.

    That said, looking after the aging parents does traditionally get dumped on a daughter. In my own family’s history there were three straight generations where the youngest daughter never married and lived with the parents until they died. That was back in the 1800s of course.

    So, are the dour, disapproving faces he and Ivanka are wearing just another con job to manipulate the media? Or could it be that Is it just now dawning on him exactly how “important” he and his family actually are to these two fuckers?

    @NotMax: That was outed as a blatant lie the moment you saw her eating out.

    You ever hear the old joke about the Satmar rabbi arriving in heaven? The welcoming angel tells him there will be a banquet in his honor, what would he like to be served?

    The rabbi replied,“Who is supervising the kitchen?” (In other words, who is insuring the Kosher laws will be kept?)

    “Hashem (God) himself.”

    “Then I’ll have a fruit salad.” (The orthodox go-to in questionable situations).

    I know, I ruined it with the translations.
