From the moment we arrived at the Honda dealership to when we left, about 2 hrs later, I have had a chess shire cat grin on my face. My daughters reaction of joy literally made me excuse my self, so I could shed a couple of tears in private. I have said many times, I am blessed to have the accident of parenthood to these fine kids. Saying that, my son is always trying to push the boundaries, so I may eventually be subjected to what my mother wished upon me once in anger. The old saying that I should have a "kid like myself".

It's a great joy to be able to share with our kids and give them these special moments of happiness. I'm happy for you and your family. Merry, Merry Christmas.

Bushi101,
Merry Christmas to you and your family. My hope is that you and your family and the rest of our posting family have only good health and happiness to suffer through.
Now 1 drawback to a large family. The number of pets seem to multiply. We are now up to 4 dogs and 2 cats. My duty as the early morning dog walker in now done in 2 shifts.

BTW, I've been watching the Hallmark Channel in December where true romance reigns and soulmates always seem to find each other. Crummy boyfriends always get turned away. If life could only imitate art.

Hey folks,
The actress who plays Anika, just tweeted to her fans that the Satisfaction cast is getting together in 2 months. I had been led to believe that March 15th is the first day of shooting in Atlanta. So the earlier date means they will start having script readings sometime in Feb? Carissa knows more about show biz, so she may be able to guide us.

White Collar Season 6 Episode 2 Review: Return to Sender

Please get your facts straight Keller wasn't Neal's first with the FBI that was Curtis Hagen (the British dude that called Neal "a particular kind of bastard")

My daughter drove her mother and younger sister to show the grandparents her new car. Till they get back, I have a few minutes
Just a couple of thoughts. Maybe Grace did not like school very much. She made the comment that she needed to be high in order to pass her tests. Is it possible, that marriage became the convenient excuse to terminate her studies? Later in life, that decision was one that she began to regret. It may be the case that as Anika became more independent Grace's day became less consumed by familial responsibilities and she became bored and lonely.
Neil made the comment in episode 1, that the home purchase was at the urging of Grace. They could not afford it initially but Grace was sure the money would come. It did, but at a price. Neil had to dedicate the vast majority of his time to the pursuit of riches. This again contributed to Grace feeling abandoned.
It may well be true that Neil wanted Grace to continue her studies and go to Italy on the Fulbright, but Grace was tired of school and homemaking was a convenient excuse. That would fit what Grace's old professor said. She made the comment that Grace was insistent on marriage rather than studies.
Grace fell in love with Neil. He was probably a handsome, dynamic, business, or econ. major. What ever Neil was, Grace was clearly in love and lust at the time of marriage.

How did your daughter react? :) In the season finale, Neil said he wanted to go with Grace to Italy. I think that what happened is that Neil and Grace got married. Grace got the Fulbright scholarship around the same time. Neil was happy for her and planned to move to Italy with her to support her dreams. Grace realized that she was pregnant and she decided to keep Anika and forgo the scholarship. It's a simple scenario and one that is believable and understandable given the circumstances.

Except it's not a new show. Keep your fingers crossed... maybe it will be on the overall worst list!

The Last Ship was terrific. It made me feel good to be an American. And with the world as it is today - that has been far in between. Thanks for the storylines.

The 100 should totally be on this list! Some shows like A-Z and Constantine are total flops.

Technically The 100 is in its second season so it was a new show last year.

@ Ariana Guzman

It first aired in March 2014, so it works for our purposes. Don't worry. We still have the best dramas of 2014 coming... sans the new!

Oh ok. I didn't realize that it was a midseason debut.
