Yes, it is November. Enough of the October "Pink". That doesn't mean we forget and still do things for breast cancer, but we need to go on. The "Pink" obviously works as if you saw GMA this morning, Amy was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. This was her first ever mammogram and she did it in October to go along with the "Pink" campaign. 

1. Do you have Thanksgiving plans yet?

2. What is your favorite side dish for Thanksgiving?

3. What is your favorite dessert for Thanksgiving (trying to get ideas as we were invited to a friends home and was asked to bring dessert)?

The m.o. here for some long time now has to oppose anything and everything you say.

I know, that's what I'm saying...this was a scheduled segment for the month of October.  What are you disagreeing with me on and why did you would you claim that I haven't watched GMA or TV?

Yes but I don't think SHE in particular was going to do it unless she had gotten some coaxing from Robin. Did you watch it? How often do you watch GMA?

Again, I believe that you accurately reported what they said.   But I questioned whether there was editing or spin.   Having another articled helped clarify some of that.

In the case I was referring to here, her husband was a doctor - I'm presuming they discussed it even if she didn't act on the discussions.

You questioned that I would not have known that. Why?
