  1. I’ll watch the Ten Commandments. I’ve probably seen it thirty times, once in the theater. Spooky Bible times are here for us.

  2. Will you be covering the housewives again?
    I hope so…you are one of…if not… the very best! Sorry for the dot, dot, dot…punctuation is not my forte! Hope to be giggling soon at our favorite nitwits…

    1. You know what — I will. I’m going to try to finish season 11 before getting started on this new season. It’ll be a good break from everything else going on.
      And thanks for the kind words, Cynthia! Sorry I dropped the ball on the Housewives!


      1. Completely understand…since November 2016…when our world was turned upside down…you’ve done a stellar job covering this political nightmare…when you think about it…it’s about as goofy and twisted as any reality show!
