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

  • The trailer for the much-hyped DC Comics superhero movie sees Batman, Wonder Woman and Aquaman join forces The first full trailer for the much-anticipated superhero-team movie Justice League has been released onto the internet.Directed by Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice?s Zack Snyder, Justice League has been heavily hyped as DC Comics? answer to Marvel?s The Avengers, which provided a gateway into multiple character spin-off movies and allowed its superhero ?universe? to mushroom. Justice League features the likes of Batman, Aquaman and Wonder Woman, and is due to be followed by films giving each character solo outings. Wonder Woman, released in June, stars Gal Gadot, while Aquaman should be arriving in December 2018.

  • post Daniel Clowes: Trump's America is like the cynical comics I drew back in the 90s - 25 March
  • As the comic writer?s fantastically misanthropic work Wilson hits cinema screens, he talks about grief, Ghost World and surviving in TrumplandHey, Daniel. What was it like making a movie without Terry Zwigoff, who directed Ghost World and Art School Confidential, but isn?t in charge for Wilson?With Terry, I was very much there the whole time in kind of a Coen Brothers-ish scenario. We were bouncing ideas off each other and it felt fairly collaborative ? for this one, I had decided I really had not enjoyed that process. I really like hanging out with Terry, we have fun together, but the actual process of making the movies was not at all fun for me. After the last one I thought, you know what, I?m just going to do what I do, write the script, hand it off and see what happens. My whole goal with this one was not to even see it until it came out in the theater. Continue reading...

  • post Red Nose Day Actually review - not funny, but at least it raised money - 24 March
  • Despite all the celeb cameos the charity update of Richard Curtis?s romcom was bafflingly weak. But ultimately its job wasn?t to get laughs - it was to help peopleThe best will in the world is what we all have for Red Nose Day ? and for Richard Curtis?s monumental effort over decades in helping to make it a great national instutition. I?m very happy to have got my debit card out on the night, like so many others. The convention is that you cheerfully overlook some of the gags that don?t come off on account of the wacky gang-show spirit and live-TV hijinks and because it?s all in a good cause. But the awful truth is that Red Nose Day Actually, the much-trumpeted special featurette update of Curtis?s 2003 romcom box office smash, really was bafflingly weak.
