Orly Taitz video


Orly Taitz and the birthers are full of it. Thank you President Obama for finally putting an end to this made up controversy. Birthers are thinly disguised racists. Shame on you. I thought we, the USA, were better than that.

Medicinal Hot Toddy Recipe


My office has been plagued by the most awful flu/cold this year. This week it has been my turn to deal with this malady. A good friend recommended I make myself a hot toddy. Initially I did not know how to make one. I asked my friends on facebook if they new of a good recipe. One person replied. I liked her recipe but I felt it needed more. So I made my own modifications and additions. Here is what I came up with. It helped me sleep all night long and I honestly felt better the next morning. I hope it helps you too.


First make the tea....


1 cup of water

2 slices of fresh ginger slices

1 lemon wedge

1 stick of cinnamon bark


Place the all the ingredients in a small saucepan bring to a boil. You will know it's ready when you smell the cinnamon, ginger, and lemon coming from the saucepan.


Now to put the hot toddy together.


1 shot of bourbon or whiskey

1-2 tablespoons of honey

1/2 cup of the tea you just made


Place the strained tea, honey and bourbon in a mug. Stir well and enjoy.


I like to put honey in the leftover tea and enjoy as a wonderfully medicinal chaser to the hot toddy.

Republicans Turned Off By The Size Of Obama's Package Headline




Believe it or not someone actually printed this headline "Republicans Turned Off By The Size Of Obama's Package". I thought it couldn't be a real headline. I searched for the actual article and found it. The author is Tom Brandt, the Opinions Editor for The Echo.  Here is the first sentence, notice the words beating, vigor and rod:
"Republicans are not sparing the rod when it comes to beating up on President Obama’s economic stimulus package, but it’s clear they are unable to raise their membership to withstand the newly found vigor of his congressional muscle."
I hate to be juvenile, but he said rod.  HAHA.  Here is the link to the full article.

Video: Chelsea King Body Found



The body of Chelsea King was found yesterday around 1:00 pm Tuesday. Chelsea King's body was found near Lake Hodges north of San Diego. Chelsea King's friends were scheduled to have a vigil of hope. The vigil turned into a memorial. Rest in peace Chelsea King. My thoughts are with your family and friends who are devastated by your death.
A man named John Albert Gardner was arrested on Sunday. His DNA was found on a piece of Chelsea King's clothes that was found by the water. He will be arraigned today. He is facing forcible rape charges and hopefully the first degree murder of Chelsea King.
