The Overnight Report

Good morning, BB Lovers! Happy Saturday! :0) Yesterday on the live feeds, the HGs learned that part 2 of the Final 3 HoH Comp will be today, some time in the afternoon... They also learned that the Finale will be Wednesday night. :)

Before I get on with the Overnight Report, please indulge me for just a couple minutes...

9 weeks and a couple days ago, I threw down a challenge to Relax the Back - One of their chairs versus my hella messed up spine & the combined pure insanity of blogging Big Brother. They stepped up to the plate. I thought, "Wow.. that's nice, and it's awesome that they believe in their product so much, but... they're nuts! We're talking 8 herniated disks, reflex sympathetic dystrophy at T-10/11 and a bulging lumbar. Good luck to ya!"

Today, I concede defeat in the challenge of Relax the Back vs Big Brother Blogging demands. The chair wins. Hands down. The good news? I win too, and by extension, so do you.

So happy 9 week anniversary to me and my chair! At least 5 times I day, I kinda sit and marvel.. wow.. I'm not in pain.. Wow, still, I'm not in pain.. After 9 years of daily Ice Ice Baby, I've only had to get horizontal and ice my spine twice this entire season. Twice. And with the way the BB13 HGs have been game-on non-stop since the word go, that's a friggin' miracle!

If you're on facebook, and you'd like to win this fabulous massage chair that sells for $6,000 and makes you look and feel this relaxed, click here and go "Like" em!

They're giving it away when they hit 5,000 likes, and with less than 1000 to go, we really be ought to push them over the top on that today! How cool would it be if a disher won?

I stopped by the store in Aventura the other day during the feed out to try out some of the massage chairs.

I decided that when season's over, I'm donating my body to Relax the Back as a massage chair tester. ;p

Checking the eBayDailyDeals this morning, I found a Google Android 2.2 7" Touchscreen Tablet for under $100! 84.95 to be exact. 47% off the retail MSRP. Sweet! :0) I already bought this one, and I'll be bringing it with me to the VegasBash next week, so I have the option to blog from there and not have to carry my beast of a laptop. Mostly though, I'll be tweeting pics and the like from @BigBrotherDish.

I'm curious.. What would you treat yourself to if you suddenly had $500,000? Or even somewhere in the neighborhood of 300k, after taxes.. It's really more of a nest egg situation than a hog wild "I'm rich I'm rich," but even the staunchest fiscal conservative has got to allow themselves some degree of mad money. Let's say 10%. What would you do with $30,000 of mad money? I'm really curious. Lemme know in the comment section. :)

OK.. I'm diving in to the flashback section of the live feeds... Please refresh this post at 8am BBT, and the Overnight Report will magically appear before your eyes.

7:34pm BBT
The Final 3 Dinner...

The final 3 have gotten dressed up and they're all very happy and grateful... It's a nice scene to check out on flashback.

Porsche: Yay, Corona!
Rachel: Yay, Calamari!
Adam: Ooh, we got Calamari? They do listen.
BB: You're welcome.
Rachel/Adam/Porsche: Awww!

At 7:38pm, we get palm trees for a couple minutes. Then it picks back up at 7:42:15 with Cheers to Final 3. And a discussion of Best Game Moves for each of them.
During the palm trees, BB informed the HGs that the finale will be on Wednesday.

Rachel: Can you believe that we're the final 3?! Squeeee!!
Porsche: Pretty exciting.
Rachel: Really exciting.
Porsche: Wednesday night, huh?
Rachel: Wednesday night.
Adam: Wow. 75 days.

Rachel: I guess we can ask each other.. what we think our best game move was...

Adam: My best game move was week 1.. saying no to the veterans.
Rachel: hehehehe
Adam: Because that showed them that I was not gonna be pushed around, bullied around.. I was here to play..
Rachel: hmm
Adam: And I hope they respected me for that.
Rachel: I did.

Porsche: My best game move was.. Not picking sides, I think.. And.. getting to know all of my cast mates... And ending up in the final 3 with the 2 people I was closest with in the house.
Rachel: Awww.. That's true. Umm.. mine was... I don't know if it's best...

Rachel: ..but the biggest thing I did was having to change my game when Brendon left.

Adam nods vigorously.

Rachel: Cuz.. before he left I was playing a totally different game. I was just in it to.. I don't even know.. hahaha
Adam: You were balls to the wall, screw everybody.
Rachel: Yeah, basically.
Adam: ..I'm gonna win, I'm gonna win, I'm gonna win.
Rachel: mm hmm
Porsche: And then you had to take like a backseat..
Rachel: mm hmm
Porsche: ..for a little while.

Adam: But you definitely changed as a person and a player...
Rachel: Yeah, I think so too.
Adam: And I know that week was tough for you...
Rachel: Really tough.
Adam: And a lot of people came to your aid...
Rachel: Yes, they did. Thank you.

Adam: I think we all made a good move when we started comparing notes about.. certain people.
Porsche: That too.
Rachel: Ohmigah.. When we found out about Shelly, and finally everyone believed us..
Porsche: mm hmm


Dinner continues...

Porsche: I feel like I'm back to civilized life right now.. I'm wearing a dress. I'm wearing heels. I'm eating dinner...
Rachel: With your friends..
Adam: (nods)
Porsche: I'm like, wow!
Rachel: Seriously guys, I really do want us to stick true, no matter what, to the final 3 lunch?
Porsche: mm hmm
Adam: Yes. And it's good that it's on Wednesday.. We can probably do it Thursday or Friday..
Porsche: We'll probably have press on Thursday.
Rachel: Yeah, but we can do it before or after..
Porsche: Probably after.. They probably keep a hold on us before, no?
Rachel: mm mm. (no) One the finale's over, I don't know.. I don't know what Hayden did...

**I can tell you he was in the Suite in Vegas for the Meet n Greet late Friday afternoon.... escorted by his mother.

Rachel: But I remember seeing him the next day in the hotel.. and him and Lane and Enzo went out to lunch and stuff..

***7:28am Adam just got up. As he passes the sliding glass doors, we see the HGs are locked in, very likely until part 2 of the Final 3 HoH comp today.

Porsche: Oh yeah? Nice.
Rachel: So yeah. I know that we'll be able to. Cuz we all stay at the same hotel.
Adam: We are gonna party that night.
Porsche: Seriously.
Rachel: Seriously. And I think Thursday, there's some Big Brother party in L.A...
Adam: Yeah. Uh.. James?
Porsche: James' party, yeah.

***The party they are referring to is Thursday night, and it's being cosponsored by Superpass, and it will be shown on the live feeds on Thursday night.. Yayyy! :0)

8:54pm BBT
Dinner is over, and the Final 3 have moved on to assessing the headshots on the memory wall... Soon after, they launch into a snarky must watch Zing session on all the fallen HGs. Click the pic to get to the live feeds log in page. :0)

***Note: My internet connection has gone out 5 times in the past 15 minutes, making it very difficult to transcribe conversations. I called Comcast, but it must be a widespread problem. The call center must be really overwhelmed... their message actually says to call again later. Hopefully, it stays up long enough to post this...

***In the interest of getting as much of the Overnight up as possible, I'm just gonna post flashback times and brief summaries.. Fingers crossed.

9:44pm BBT

Rachel gives the Adam and Porsche props for hanging with and overcoming most of the veterans... And then it's Rachel's turn to receive the accolades.

Adam: 2 winners, a 2nd place, and 3 of the fiercest competitors to play this game.
Rachel: I mean, if I was you guys, I woulda been like, what the F?
Porsche: We did!
Rachel: Thank you Big Brother for effing our game up.
Porsche: Yeah, we totally did. We were like, Wow! And then we thought about it again, and we're like, obviously, they think we're good enough to be with these 6 people, so y aknow what? We better step up our game and play like we belong here.
Adam: And obviously, 2 of us have made it with one of you..
Rachel: Awww.. True.
Adam: It was 8 and 6 and now it's 2 to 1..
Rachel: 2 newbies versus 1 veteran.. And who the hell ever thought I would be the one veteran?! Did you guys ever think that? Be honest.
Porsche: (nods yes)
Adam: No.
Rachel: Porsche says yes. hehe
Adam: Cuz I knew how strong of a player you were, and I knew how big of a target you were.
Rachel: Seriously! I was a huge target this entire game. I walk in the house, they're like, "Get Rachel out!"
Porsche: Even Jordan!!
Rachel: I know!

Adam: Well, hold on.. This is week 11 technically? Or there were 10 weeks? You were on the block for 5 of them. And HoH for 3 of them..
Rachel: Yeah. Half of the time I was on the block.. and then I won 2 vetoes.. So I was either on the block, HoH or Veto holder. That's it. That's like my life of Big Brother. Hello. I was either target to go home, or winning a competition. Hello, Big Rachel... Big Red.

***There's your speech to the jury, dear. You don't need to say another word. Incidentally, you also just made an excellent argument for not taking you to final 3, in the event that choice is out of your hands.

Rachel: And same with Brendon, same with Daniele, same with Jeff... Like Brendon? Didn't win something? See ya! Daniele? Didn't win Veto? See ya! Jeff? Couldn't win Clown Shoes? See ya! It was crazy.. You guys are..

Adam: That just shows how good of competitors that you guys are..
Rachel: Yeah..
Adam: And in this game, you have to be good and a little bit lucky..

10:25pm BBT
Guess who? ;)

Adam: In fact, you were in my dream last night.

Rachel: Really?
Porsche: Woah!
Adam: That I was off work.. but I was off that day.. and I was doin' my radio show, so I was at work, and my radio show was when I was in college, which is weird, and I played the song, Blood Red by Slayer, and dedicated it to Big Red, because you were at the studio with me, because I was photocopying stuff and needed somebody to hit play on the CD for me.
Rachel: hmm. Thank you.
Adam: Yeah.. that's the dreams that I have.

Back to cards.. Porsche starts banging on the table, percussionist style.. After a minute.. Rachel does a little too.. It's part of the card game. Rachel wins this round... and they launch into a spontaneous burst of Big Booty, Big Booty, which they haven't played since there were 14 people in the house. :0) Very fun!
Go to 10:28pm on the quad to check it out. Click the pic to get to the live feeds log in page.

Candy Room
Rachel, Adam and Porsche

Pillow talk... Reminiscing about the season, Adam's favorite part was playing pool with (and consistently beating) Jeff.

Adam: I knew if I wanted to win, I just had to stat talking game..
Porsche: So every time you won, you guys were talking game?
Adam: Yeah.
Porsche: hmm. Interesting.. I knew you guys were talking game.. And you were talking game right in front of us.
Adam: Nope. When it was just him and I outside. I'd beat him like 4 to 1, and he'd be like, "Why do you always do this to me?" Because I know you can't concentrate on both.
Rachel: hehe
Porsche: oh boy.. (pause) So what did they say? Late evening was our game (part 2 of the final 3 hoh comp) tomorrow?
Adam: Late Afternoon.

***Okie dokie! I'll be back with the Final 3 HoH Comp Part 2 Spoiler and Aftermath and soon as that happens! :) I'll notify via facebook.com/bbdish and twitter.com/bigbrotherdish, as always.

Happy Saturday, BB Lovers! Thanks for being a part of the dish! See you back here later on!

Good morning! Happy part 2 HOH Comp Day!
I wish I didn't have to work Wednesday night. I really want to watch the finale live.

If I could just blow $30,000 I would probably buy a newer SUV and take a vacation...cruise for a week and then hit the beach for another week. I would also buy a new Coach purse and a new pair of Dansko's. Dansko's are to my feet what Relax the Back is to your back!

I would give my current SUV to my daughter.

I would also donate to charity. Probably Make a Wish or Give Kids the World.

I dont know how many of you know this but in Canada lotto wins are tax free. A couple from my small town won $40 million in the lotto last month and yes, completely tax free. Makes the after taxes BB win seem, well, .... smaller! But hey, I'd take anything over $5,000. I'm not fussy.

Being Canadian, we don't pay taxes on winnings. So, I'd have the whole 500,000$ and my 10% would be 50,000$

I think some travel in Britain and Europe.

Just wondering how chummy Rachel would feel about Porsche if she knew about the remark re: Rachel's pregnancy.
"Maybe she'll fall down the stairs and save $ on an abortion."
Makes me a little sick to look at her face.Couldn't watch BBAD.

If I had 30k I'd go solar power
and a jacuzzi.That would about cover it.It would save me $ and give me relaxation.
Sittin in the tub thinking of the cash I'm saving.

Hope Rachel wins.......
Did I just say that!!!!????

Congrats on your pain free season Carolyn,or at least minimal pain.

I was hit by a car and my favorite chair is my computer chair.

Have fun in Vegas Baby!

Or at least less pain

Hey Carolyn! Hey Dishers

If I had $30 000 I would blow it on a shopping spree. Yup all of it. I want to lose weight (don't we all) and get a whole new wardrobe complete with cute tops cute jeans and a pair of shoes for every single occasion....now I am sad I don't actually have $30 000 :( lol.

This has been a great season. I love reading Carolyn's updates cause it makes me feel so connected, especially without live feeds.

If I had $30,000 tax free I'd get my floors tiled and get a "green" hot water heater.

I'd order lots of miniature food for my dollhouses from amanspeak.com where I ordered $50 worth for my birthday gift to self.

I'd give some to my church and I'd take my granddaughter to disney. Oh maybe I should buy a flat screen TV to watch BB next year!!!

I've enjoyed reading everyone's comments all season too.

I also wanted to say thanks for all the work Y'all put into this site. I have maybe 10 or 12 sites bookmarked for BB, but this is the site I come to, several times every day. I love that its free from personal attacks etc. I don't comment much but I read everything. BB Dish rocks!

Good morning Carolyn and all of you wonderful bbdishers!

My feeds kept going off and then being in a "loading" mode and I don't have Comcast! The HGs kept talking about the Sunday show and other days. I was waiting for BB to let them know the real schedule. I must have logged off before they did. I was watching 9/11 tributes and BB feeds weren't working so I gave up :'(

As for the $30,000 - I would purchase a RelaxTheBack chair and take a trip to the Galapagos Islands.

(((Hugs))) to Carolyn and Genie Sea for capturing a great season!!

Good Morning Carolyn, fellow Dishers

Congrats on a pain free back for so long now, that's wonderful. Also congrats and big, big thanks to you and Genie and everyone who have made this another incredible season of BB on the Dish.

It was so weird to come home from work last night and not see a Dish post besides yesterday's TOR. I hope you got some nice rest though and had a good day. I understand since they are doing less than nothing right now. I watched the memory wall Zing fest, that was pretty good.

Loved The Tribute to Bacon. Bravo House rodents.

If I won $30,000. I would love to travel to Japan, England and parts of Europe. If it was this year though I would definitely go to Europe and see the Big Four in concert. After their stop in NY at Yankee Stadium this Wed. the 14th, the concert Adam had tickets to, they aren't doing anymore shows in the US. I'd also like a Xbox 360 and a new TV.

Interesting statistic I read yesterday. Out of the 10 final HOHs that have had 3 part comps only 4 HGs who have won part one have made it to part 3. I really hope this is not the cases for Rachel. I hope Adam wins today and Rachel wins part 3 so she can decide who to sit next to. I feel that if Adam or Porsche win part 2 and 3 they will take each other. They would be fools if they didn't.

I don't have to work 2 jobs today, first time in months so I'm going to enjoy the day. I hope you do as well.

Have a great one!!!!! :D

Hi y'all - I'm a vet on bbdish but a newbie in posting here.

Something has been on my mind since the last episode and I've been contemplating on it trying to remove any judgement.

Probably as many here, I'm a Jeff & Jordan fan - for obvious reasons. However, this last episode has got me thinking about Jordan.

If you pay close attention to the last two episodes in which Rachel and Kahlia talk about their friendship with Jordan and then compare it to how Jordan has spoken about them... it's almost as if there's a disconnect.

Personally, I've noticed that Rachel and Kahlia were emotionally invested invested in the "friendship" whereas Jordan doesn't seem as invested as she was with Shelly and is with Adam. If you compare her speech to Adam in the end where she tells him how much she loves him. On the other hand, all she had to say about Rachel was that her preconceived notions changed.

For example, if you refer to Kahlia's exit interview with Julie, Kahlia talks about how much she values her friendship with Jordan. But if you look at Jordan's goodbye message to Kahlia, she says how Kahlia and her talk a lot (mostly because Kahlia is the one talking).

Also, if you look at Jordan's interview and where Rachel says goodbye, Rachel talks about not believing how much of a friend she made in Jordan. But Jordan's response appeared as if she was stumped, almost as if she can't reciprocate the friendship or at least as much.

From what I've seen and thought about thus far, Jordan acts as a sponge in the company of others and really just strokes their ego. Now I can certainly see how that helped Rachel since Brendon left.

I'm just a little confused and would like other's opinions. I tried to be as objective but just trying might make me appear to be at fault.

I'd love to have your opinions, fellow dishers!

Good morning Carolyn,
Hello Dishers

Hope everyone is having a relaxing weekend and the 9/11 personal memories aren't too painful with all the reminders in front of us.

@Carolyn I am so happy to hear how easy this season was for you with your Relax The Back chair. You are a great advertisement for their company and they should definitely give you a massage chair for all your positive press.

@ Sweetjilly, I do see what you are talking about with Jordan. I think Rachel and Kalia got more out of their friendship with Jordan than she got from them. With Adam and Shelly she got "words of wisdom" so I think her connection was stronger.

Jordan was a good friend to Rachel but for most of that time she was the strong one who was holding Rachel together. Outside of this house and this experience they are such total opposites that were their paths to cross I don't think they would likely be drawn to each other.

In my mind at least that is how I chalked up the emotional disconnect I sensed when Jordan talked about Kalia and Rachel. Their friendship is based in the experience they shared together rather than having common compatibility.

Oh year for my $30,000 to blow. What can I say except that I am a Mom so would just turn the check over to my son who graduated from college in June. Figure young kids can always use a nest egg to start out their independent life with. He's a good kid and very practical so I know he would invest most of the money rather than blowing it.

I have to say that sweet Jordan has seemed like she's been on Prozac all summer. Her mood is so stable...except for going nuts on Shelly as shelly deserved...no real highs and no real lows.

I think she is kind and loving and just is no more demonstrative with words than she is with emotions.

Some random thoughts:
1) I can't believe Porsche considers herself prettier /cuter than Jordan. For me, Porsche isn't in the same ball park (no pun intended), and I suspect for Porsche as well. Why else would she keep trying to convince anyone who will listen that she is "cute" so much of the time.
2) Seems like scrabbble isnot the only thing we share Caro. I suffer from L4/LO5/S1 and have gone through both epidurals and radio wave facet injections. I had a chair at work that was ergonomic but does not sound as effective as yours.
3) As to what would I buy for for the $30k-60k (after taxes) of pure mad money (assuming the philanthropic needs were fulfilled), would be a Tesla for about $60k . I know that's at the high end, but if I can fuel my car with electricity and it can take me 250 miles per injection (AND I won't have to fill the entire car up at once each time I am low) then for sure I would give this technology a shot!
4) ANd perhaps the most important to the BB game, I am happy to hear that they have finally concluded that TALKING TO EACH OTHER is the best way to eliminate those who advance in the dark with shady stories and half-truths designed to help one's self while denigrating another. This kind of gossip really CAN be eliminated with a Group Meeting dedicated to simply shedding light on situations and need not cause too much pain if all agree to it. The "haters and the liars" can thus be eliminated from the game expeditiously!

In response to sweeyjilly:
I disagree with his interpretations. Jordan is not known for being either particularly articulate or doing well under pressure. I don't think I need to prove that to ANYONE who has watched her. As she even indicated, the season she won, she ended her address to the Jury with: "So..." and then sat down. She is not your major PhD candidate. That being said, I think one has to look in different places and in different ways.
In a nut shell here is his thesis: "I've noticed that Rachel and Kahlia were emotionally invested (sic) invested in the "friendship" whereas Jordan doesn't seem as invested ". If you look at his examples in a vacuum and give Jordan the gift of articulation, then yes, he has pointed out evidence to support his theory., However, if you understand Jordan's state of being and those with whom she pals around with, then no!
Let's look at Jeff's response to Jordan's "strip tease" when she took off the humilitard. He said, with a wide eyed almost gleeful reaction that he thought it was "sexy". I did not detect even a glimmer of sarcasm or even playful kidding in his delivery. I believe to his eye's that was a sexy as it gets for him. If ANYTHING accompanies their interactions with other's it's their ability to say exactly what is on their minds without the hint of filtration. So, if that is what passes for sexy in their world, then I think in like manner, the degree to which she makes deep connections is equally as lighthearted. And the fact that she DID indeed make a deeper connection to the MOTHER FIGURE in her present existence, simply underlines the need she still has for a "mother figure". A person whom she perceives to be without guile or any hint of someone who would ever try to subvert her.
I think in this regard her child- like innocence is consistent. She has made as deep a connection to another "adult" as she can with her connection to both Rachel and Kahlia and perhaps Jeff as well, and when her child-like connection to her mother figure goes south, then we witness how distraught someone with her outlook becomes. I was pleased to see her gather herself up in the interview when Julie asked her about this. She replied something like: Wow, that means ypou can't even trust your own mother in THAT HOUSE! thus putting a needed degree of distance between herself and her "mother-figure.
Frankly I see no inconsistency at all. And I especially don't see any "disconnect" comparably speaking. As for Adam, it's again just a case where she was caught under time pressure and needed perhaps to clear the air, quickly. She left Adam with the impression that he could not be trusted if he were going to "break up Rachel" and her in his final decision to put her (Jordan) on the block. She realized that he was NOT untrustworthy and that this decision was indeed the most trustworthy one he could have made, and with very little time to indicate this to him, she simply went over the top so he would get the message. I do not think she "loves" him but was simply grateful a to him for remaining consistent, and not as she first thought, betrayed by him.
(I sincerely hope she does not read this. It was difficult to write. I support anyone who can maintain her degree of sincerity when the world believes that using guile is the only way to live).

I'm Hoping that Porsche wins part 2 because Rachel can beat her in questions easier then she can beat Adam. Although Adam thinks he can beat Rachel in final 2 so I figure Rachel is going to final 2 Anyways.

Adam and Porsche have to know that if they win hoh and don't take Rachel they are losing 2 if not 4 votes in the jury house but if they take her she has 3 guaranteed votes. They are damned if they do and damned if they don't!

If Porsche knows her big brother she would take Rachel because there has never been a woman who won in the final 2 against a man. The man has always won.

Adam thinks that if he takes Rachel he has a better chance because he thinks he will get jeff and jordan's vote As well as shelly Porsche and dani's. He won't but he thinks he will!

But he has a better chance against Porsche which is why I hope he doesn't win final hoh because he might figure that out!

Ok that's my 2 cents! Go Rachel go!

We've got our drive down Palm Blvd. once again. I took a break because nothing was happening except Rachel seeming to love the sound of her own voice. I can only take so much of that and I had enough that I felt it was time to reduce my caloric intake for the day. Either that or take a laxative. I opted for neither and took a football break.

Looks like we are still waiting for F3 Comp Part Deux. I wish they would hurry it up. I'm planning on staying in for a football night since I'm not performing tonight. GEAUX TIGERS!!!

I'm hanging in for a while because I'd like to get in some comments tonight. I'm so excited this is almost over. I'll be thinking long and hard about committing to BB14. It's going to have to be all new faces or a (gag me) All-Stars with a majority of my own favorite players. There was so much hate and division this season. I can't take a back to back theme or variation of this one.

I'm not sure who I am rooting for in this Part Deux but leaning to Porsche because I think she would rather go up against Adam and have a better chance of winning. Adam has floated (with his words) so much I don't trust him. I believe in his mind he is already a Veteran somehow and would take Rachel, only to lose to her in the Finale.

Obviously I want an all New Faces F2 and I'm leaning towards Porsche to win because she didn't waffle as much as Adam.

I guess waffling should have been expected from Adam, to go with his plate of bacon and a side of waffles.

Babble Babble. I could go on but I need to plan my football snacks and choice of beverages for tonight.

What would I do with $30K. I've been thinking about that a lot today. I'd probably relocate which we have been talking about doing late next Spring already. New Orleans will always be home but I've become quite disenchanted with it for a while now.

Of course a couple of outrageously expensive (for me) performance gowns and some other drag items would be on the list because no matter where we go I'll continue performing. There's a couple of places on our short list of where we might move and Canada is one of them. The other is to the Northeastern US.

That would eat up $30K pretty fast but I'd make sure to make some charitable donations also, and Hit The Tip Jar would be in there too. Not charitable as in it would be a tax write-off but certainly a small bit of payback for all the years of pleasure The dish has given me.

Caro, that short F3 Part Uno comp sure took a toll on Sitemaster for hopes of hitting 21 Million, but I think there is still hope of getting there on Finale Night. What do you think.

I really want to see that milestone reached and I know you do too.

If it does make it to 21, as soon as you get to Vegas you have to play 21 at the Roulette Table, and some Blackjack, too.
