PIGEON FORGE — The Duggar family of the TLC show "19 Kids and Counting" have made their third visit to the Smoky Mountains resort area in a little over a year.

According to The Mountain Press, this time they toured the Parrot Mountain tourist attraction, home to hundreds of exotic birds.

Father Jim Bob Duggar and 18 children were on the trip. Mother Michelle was home in Little Rock caring for newest baby Josie.

Duggar said more visits are likely.

"We've been coming here for years and I'm sure we'll keep coming," he said. "We love it here."

We need to stop giving these people press. They are not to be popularized and lauded for what they've done -- and continue to do.

What exactly is it they have done and continue to do?

I never have understood what is so interesting about the Duggars. So they can procreate - so what?
