    @VJ, thanks for sharing with your FF family the fantastic picture of the twins. They sure grew fast. Seems like yesterday when they were born. You have every right to be proud. They are precious.

    • VJ says:

      Thank you all. So glad you like the pic. @Jacob. It’s so true that the time has flown. They are going to be 3 in a month and a half. It hasn’t always been easy because our little fella has communication problems and falls within the autism spectrum, but my daughter has been on top of that from the first signs and he is coming along well. It is so amazing how intuitive his sister is when communicating with him. She can talk your ear off!

    My wife still hasn’t caught on to my tomfoolery and thinks I’m a genius for knowing all the FJ answers. lol. Since she knows I’ve never watched a single episode of this show, I’ll have to take a “dive” on this one to throw her off the scent.

    • Jacob Ska says:

      @Don, that’s funny. I really don’t think we can fool our wives. I think they let us believe we can. If I knew pop culture mine would be suspect.

      Always said if I appeared on WWTBAM I would have to ask for help from the audience on current pop culture. Anything from back in the day I would know but not current pop culture. :(

    Sorry about forgetting to delete the old comments, folks. I just watched the season finale of this show a couple of days ago. I think I mentioned to JLane that Steve Howey was in it (Kevin Ball on Shameless).

    The funniest thing is that I wrote a recap on this show 7 YEARS AGO! that they were probably going to cancel this series. It says “They also have so much footage of (this actress’s) “what shocking news” look and her “I’m processing this as fast as I can” visage, that she probably no longer needs to show up for half her scenes.” LOL!!

    P.S. It snowed here last night!

    • JLane says:

      @ VJ – No worries, VJ… I was thrilled that you still had the old comments up because I’m pretty certain that those were from the last FJ that I actually got right!! Grrrrr… :-(

      And sorry to hear about the snow… we’re dipping down into the 30s this weekend, but they haven’t seen snow in these parts since 1989 (I moved here in 1999) so I think I’m safe from having to break out the chains for the tires anytime soon!

    Yikes, VJ, these comments are from last week’s Nero FJ.
    I’m pretty sure the answer to today’s FJ is MH, daughter of Jayne Mansfield.

    • JLane says:

      @ rhonda – your right on both counts, Ms. Rhonda… we ARE having a deja vu moment all over again (redundancy intentional!) AND, unlike me, you picked the right actress! I’ve never seen the show on which she stars. I don’t watch much “regular” network programming – we’re more HBO/Showtime/Starz/Netflix/etc. kinda people, so I never would have come up w/ her, BUT good for you AND good for Chancellor Jacob for his 3 for 3 prediction of Angela Merkel yesterday!!!

      • Jacob Ska says:

        @Jlane, I’m with you. I would have never gotten this clue in a million years (lol). I’m more of a CSPAN, Business Channels, etc., person. Thanks for the kudos.

        @Rhonda, thanks for the fantastic hint. I may have watched 1 or 2 shows when one of our daughters was visiting who is a fan of the show. Didn’t know this actress was Jayne Mansfield’s daughter either. Thanks for the info. ;)

        • rhonda says:

          You’re welcome Jacob. I don’t watch this show either, the only reason I came up with the answer was because of the words “on the beat”. I did see them once filming the show on the steps of the NYS courthouse a few years ago.

        • VJ says:

          That’s cool, Rhonda. I was a big fan of the original series, all the way back to when Michael Moriarity was on it, and also of the CI spin-off with Vincent D’Onofrio. This one not so much.

          Check out the Twins’ First Snow — the last time it snowed down here, their mommy was in high school. The twins won’t remember this at all the next time it does.

        • rhonda says:

          I agree with you about the original series as compared to this one, VJ. I loved it when Jerry Ohrbach was on the show.
          The twins are absolutely adorable! Thanks so much for the photo.

        • JLane says:

          @ VJ – I couldn’t agree w/ Rhonda more— those babies are precious!
