Duggar Free Discussion December

Please use this for Duggar sightings, speculation, or general discussion. Note that this is Duggar discussion not other families, TV shows, or personal stories.

Fact or Fiction

I often get frustrated when I see misinformation quoted as fact in a discussion on the Duggar family. That misinformation is then passed on and in the minds of others, becomes “truth”. What misinformation has caught your attention in these forums and elsewhere? Even better, can you post a link to the correct information?

Thanks to Somebody's Nana.

Comments to the moderators

Please read!

Comments and questions to the moderators sent through comments will usually not be addressed. As suggested in our rules, please send questions or comments solely intended for the mods in an email. We will not normally respond to mod questions sent in comments unless it is a general concern. Also we have multiple moderators so your question may be seen by one while someone else was actually processing the comment or comments in question. Thank you.

Also, please remember not to tell other commenters and readers how to act, think, or feel. Their opinions and feelings while possibly not matching yours are as equally valuable to them as your opinions and feelings are to you. I just rejected another comment that was perfectly acceptable until the last sentence. That sentence was an admonition of how to post during this difficult time for the Duggars. Some people may be very sympathetic to the Duggars at this time and others may not be. It is too much to expect that everyone commenting here will be in consistent agreement. Thanks!

Also please remember the topic of the blog is the Duggar family and show. It is not about homeschooling in general, teacher aides or not in various states, religion in general, etc. We're getting quite a few comments about rejected comments. Most were either too far off topic, were directed at another commenter, or were trying to tell other people what to think or behave.

Links are limited to those relevant to the Duggars. Links to various stories or blogs of other preemie families are not appropriate as it will lead to discussion of that child and family.

Duggar Recipes

How many have tried a Duggar recipe and what did you think? What did you change or would you change? I admit I made the Duggar rolls for Christmas this year. I didn't tell the family where the recipe came from until after dinner. Anyway, I seem to now be signed on for making them again next year. They were very good. One thing I changed was to use butter instead of "shortening." I can't bring myself to use solid Crisco. I made the rolls more rectangular than truly crescent also.

Tues, December 22, Duggars in the Sky

The Duggars are on ice and in the air! Watch as the hockey team-sized family meets a real hockey team by visiting the Nashville Predators. When the crew brings in a helicopter to film aerial shots, the kids get to see their house from a whole new height.

If You Have to Hash Out the Duggars VS the Mini-Mart Here's the Spot

Please let's keep the Josie thread for Josie items. Use this one, please, for the Duggars' opposition to approval of the alcohol license.

Tues, December 15, Designing Duggars

The Duggars are back with the Bates and Wilsons! Watch as the families put the finishing touches on the Bates' home renovation project. But with over 40 kids running around, will the families be able to get everything done in their one-week deadline?

Michelle Went to Hospital for Gallbladder Problems

According to People it was a gallbladder attack. She has my sympathy as that is very painful.

The Duggars are in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee to help ring in the Christmas season for the city. While they're in town, they can't pass up an opportunity to reunite with the Bates family, who just welcomed baby number 17!
