  1. Asheville, North Carolina? That is very cool.
    Saturday Night Live has no taste. They lost it years ago.

    1. Hi Editors:) I think its a great concept, having a couple of adoption animals available at a hotel. I'd think some guests would be interested given all the traffic in and out.

  6. That sounds great indeed. When you have to make fun of ISIS you've hit the bottom of the barrel.

  7. I did not see the ISIS skit but I watched This Hour has 22 Minutes which is a Canadian comedy show and they also did a skit and I just think it is not the right thing to do. I was thinking the whole times of the families that lost their loved ones in such a horrible way and I don't think they can make fun of this...in time maybe like they do with Hitler but not now

    1. I agree, Birgit, I just keep thinking how funny would the creators of that skit think it, if one of their loved ones had been beheaded.
