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

You'll be the first in our little group to experience it.  Tell us what it's like.

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

  • This high-revving thrill ride about a music-obsessed teenage getaway driver is a terrifically stylish piece of work with a banging soundtrackIn 2011 a resident of Oakland, Michigan, caused a sensation by bringing a lawsuit against Nicolas Winding Refn?s film Drive for not having enough actual pedal-to-the-metal driving in it. That same person could hardly do the same to Edgar Wright, director of this outrageously enjoyable petrolhead heist caper, unless it would be for not showing a supercool adult chauffeur atop a Pamper-wearing infant with a steering wheel between its tiny shoulder blades roaring up the M25.

  • post The Little Hours review ? foul-mouthed nuns run riot in flimsy but fun comedy - 27 June
  • Aubrey Plaza heads up a cast of skilled comic actors in a sex farce that has amusing moments scattered throughout but risks feeling like an extended SNL skitRather like 2011?s Your Highness, the initial gimmick proudly, even boastfully, revealed in The Little Hours is based on the notion that medieval characters can be just as puerile as their contemporary counterparts. Within seconds of the titles ending, 14th-century nuns are swearing, shouting, vandalizing and attacking any local man naive enough to look their way. But the test here ? and it?s one that Danny McBride?s misjudged comic fantasy failed at ? is whether the film can sustain itself beyond mere shock value. Related: The Big Sick review ? Kumail Nanjiani's real-life romcom is a humane delight Continue reading...

  • post Despicable Me 3 review ? aspartame-rush animation that is starting to run out of steam - 26 June
  • The third helping of the blockbuster Despicable Me series featuring Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig makes all the right moves ? but to incrementally less successful effectThe Despicable Me series has shown there is life outside Pixar and Disney, both commercially and artistically, in the blockbuster animation world, with its sentimental-querulous figurehead Gru (voiced by Steve Carell) and fondness for idiosyncratic grotesques. So here we are at number three ? not counting, of course, the prequel-spinoff Minions, in which Gru?s babbling army of small yellow helpers took centre stage. While all the elements that brought the first two Despicable Mes inordinate popularity are present and correct, it might perhaps be churlish to suggest that the charm is beginning to wear off ? just a tiny bit.On the face of it, this third film simply extends the sentimental undertow of its predecessors. Having acquired children (in DM1) and a wife (Lucy, voiced by Kristen Wiig, in DM2), Gru this time discovers he has a twin, Dru (voiced, again, by Carell). Possessed of hair, a sunny outlook and substantial material possessions, Dru is pitched as the polar opposite to his surly, self-hating long-lost brother; he is also keen to re-establish the family tradition of supervillany ? the very practice Gru has turned his back on. It?s only a matter of minutes before a heated sibling rivalry is raging. Continue reading...
