That man gives me the absolute creeps.
He talks like a three-year-old and utters nonsense and lies.

You share the sentiments of many here. LOL

I'm taking a "wait and see" attitude.  I am impressed with his speed in enacting many of his campaign promises. That's the business man in him.  We've been used to him for many years and he's always blustered. He's no different in that regard than he ever was. We're used to it. You just have to wade through that to get down to the meat of his words.  I think people like that about him.

Notice I have Trump Tweets in the upper right had box on this page.  I do like that he's keeping that up.  It gives little chance for the media to put their spin on things.

I've been trying to have a wait and see attitude, but I don't think Trump is right in the head. He scares me.

I arrived at LAX from London on Sunday afternoon and had no idea of the protestors that were outside of the customs and immigration area of the international terminal. I noticed that there was a huge backup to clear customs, but that isn't much different from any day at LAX. It wasn't until my friend and I went up the ramp to leave customs that we heard a low rumble. As we turned the corner we began to see what all the noise was all about.

7,000 people were jammed inside, outside the terminal...blocking the roadway and parking structure. Craziness. Lawyers with signs saying "I'm a lawyer and will help you!", people chanting and people yelling into megaphones. Thousands of protestors. 

My friend and I couldn't get out of the terminal. We just wanted to get home after a 11 hour flight and we couldn't get past the crowd. Finally a police officer with a big gun helped us get through. It was frightening.

He scares me, too.
He's like a child with ADHD, talking all the time, doing mischief, and using words like 'very nice' and 'we promised you we would ...'.

We were thinking of visiting the USA again in 2018, but now we're hesitating.
Even a legitimate visum can be doubted if you have the misfortune to encounter an overzealous immigration officer at the airport!

Luce, I highly doubt that you and Hermy will have any problems getting through US customs and immigration!   :fav001:

I think you should go ahead and plan your trip!  Come to San Diego and stay with me!!! :fav288:

NYC or New York State?  NYC has so much to offer...museums, Broadway shows, great walking tours . Chicago is good too, but Detroit?!!!  Why Detroit?  The city is absolutely awful.  The only thing that might be of interest in Detroit is actually in Dearborn MI and that is Greenfield Village and the Henry Ford museum.

I should ask first what you're interested in seeing.  Washington DC has a lot to offer as far as museums.

The lakes?  The Great Lakes?  All five?  What about Niagara Falls?  You can tick off 2:  Lake Ontario and Lake Erie in one fell swoop!  Chicago is on Lake Michigan.  That would leave Lakes Huron and Superior. 

So I guess CA is not in your travel plans... :fav286:

Skip Detroit. Even Americans don't visit there. It's blighted, although, rising from the ashes.

I'd go to Arizona and the Grand Canyon.  I've missed that in my life.

Well, the plans are only in the very beginning.
Okay, not Detroit.
Hermy is the organizer, I'll leave it to him.

Yep, I think Paul would agree about Detroit. He lived in one of the suburbs and never actually ventured into the city!

I'll be leaving for the US four weeks tomorrow. Not looking forward to the immigration queues but can't wait to meet my nephews  :362

DCM, if you have ESTA you can skip the long lines and go to the kiosks. If you're flying into one of the less busy airports in the US you might not encounter quite the long lines, but I'm not sure what airport and what customs you'll encounter.

Fly to Dublin and clear customs there before you enter the US, that is the easiest way to do it!

I'm in Săo Paulo, Brazil on a long layover right now. I'm going to be flying home during the Super Bowl, so I will miss watching the commercials...I don't even know who is playing...lol

We do have ESTAs, so hopefully it should be straightforward for us.

The two times that I've been to the US before, we left from Dublin and cleared immigration before boarding. But it was just too expensive for us this time. We're flying directly from Edinburgh to Newark, then a 3 hour stopover before flying to Jacksonville

  • Avoiding tabloid headlines, choosing the right director and knowing your eccentricities are just a few of the secrets to Nicole Kidman?s reinventionFor all intents and purposes, the 70th Cannes film festival belongs to Nicole Kidman. She has four offerings his year and seems to be a virtual one-woman invasion on the Croisette. She?s the ruthless head of a girls? seminary in Sofia Coppola?s The Beguiled; she reigns as the intergalactic punk monarch Queen Boadicea in How to Talk to Girls at Parties; she goes deadpan in high-concept head-scratcher, The Killing of a Sacred Deer, from The Lobster director Yorgos Lanthimos. She also forcibly integrates TV into the festival by virtue of her star power with a turn in season two of Top of the Lake.

  • He said he was making a film about taekwondo. But the great French director was actually on the trail of an old flame he had a secret romance with in the 1950sAt 91, Claude Lanzmann is a virtual folk memory of cinema. He is the former teenage fighter in the French resistance whose Jewish family went into hiding when war broke out. In 1985, he directed Shoah, the eight-hour documentary about the Holocaust composed almost entirely of first-person testimony. Now in Cannes, he has premiered a film about his personal experiences in North Korea. Napalm is a movie that, initially, takes its cue from the underreported fact that the US used the incendiary weapon in the Korean war of 1950-53. Related: Napalm review ?

  • Colin Farrell plays a wounded soldier who throws himself on the mercy of a ladies? seminary during the American civil war ? and sets them all of a decorous flutterSofia Coppola delivers a very enjoyable southern melodrama, the tale of a handsome, badly wounded Union soldier in enemy terrain during the American civil war who throws himself on the mercy of a ladies? seminary ? of all the outrageous things. Their inhabitants are all of a decorous flutter at the idea of this semi-unclothed male to whom they must minister, intimately. With its hilariously fraught psychodynamic, the film has hints of Black Narcissus and the famous Diet Coke ad about office workers admiring a perspiring worker slaking his thirst. It is adapted by Coppola from the 1966 Thomas P Cullinan novel - already filmed by Don Siegel in 1971 with Clint Eastwood in the lead role. Continue reading...
