I'm off to work. I even managed to take the dog for a short sniff and pee. It was chilly so I didn't want to go far not being all the way well. I think I'll be able to do my shift today barring any relapses. Happy BFF!
Holy crap I just wandered by the TV while getting ready for work and CNN was covering CPAC. They were showing Rick Perry's speech. I thought I was watching the Sunday morning evangelical shows complete with jumping up and down, fist pumping and hollering.
Fiddleheads are yummy.
Bernie is a New England curmudgeon.
I'm pretty certain Sanders would be running as an "I", no?
I don't know, never tried them. They don't sound tasty. I am feeling much better today. I haven't hoarfed since early yesterday morning and was able to tolerate some food yesterday afternoon/evening. The fever and aches have finally subsided as well.
I would like to see him run just to change the conversation in the campaign. They'd be forced to address issues they'd rather not.
Run Bernie run! Wow. Bernie Sanders Claims He's Prepared To Run For President
So the same old same old [Clinton administration Secretary of the Treasury] Robert Rubin type of economics, or centrist politics, or continued dependence on big money, or unfettered free-trade, that is not what this country needs ideologically. That is not the type of policy that we need. And it is certainly not going to be the politics that galvanizes the tens of millions of people today who are thoroughly alienated and disgusted with the status quo. People are hurting, and it is important for leadership now to explain to them why they are hurting and how we can grow the middle class and reverse the economic decline of so many people. And I don’t think that is the politics of Senator Clinton or the Democratic establishment…. People want to hear an alternative set of policies that says to the American people: with all of this technology, with all of this productivity, the truth of the matter is that the average person in this country should be living better than ever before—not significantly worse economically than was the case thirty years ago. That’s what we need. That’s what I want to talk about… I think that the class message, that in this great country, especially with all kinds of new technology and increased productivity, that we can in fact provide a decent standard for all people, I think that resonates in fifty states in America. I think what people are looking for is leadership that is prepared to take on the big money interests (to deliver that message). That’s not what we’re seeing, by and large, from most Democrats.
This winter seems to have been particularly bad for bugs of all kinds. I know people that have been sick for two months and bronchitis has been running rampant. Working in a bar makes it almost impossible to not catch whatever is getting passed around. It seems they think going to the bar and drinking will help them feel better. Which it probably does for a few hours but then they end up sicker because the liquor kicks their immune system in the ass.
Yeah, same here. I had a "super" cold almost the entire month of February that turned into a sinus infection. I was just feeling a little better and got hit with this. I had to leave work early yesterday. I still don't know how I drug myself in there to begin with. The fever had me loopy. I was still feverish last night at bedtime even with the ibuprofen but it broke about 2am, finally.
Good morning. Getting over a bout of what appears to have been norovirus or something akin to that. 24 hours of hell.
It could definitely give Honey Boo Boo a run for it's money.
Just stop, RiF.
And always use an easy to remember password...like "password".
Way too generous. They can drink melted snow.
Ahaha great minds and all that, RiF.
I prefer a whole
It's the allergy meds. Even the daytime stuff makes me tired.
RiF. You are correct! I woke up and the sun had come out and it was in the 60's. I even took dog for his sniff and pee all the way to the swamp it was so nice out.
I took a really long nap, did I miss anything?
That's because you are a popsicle.
Yeah, I am thinking of planting some but I know it takes a long time before you get any yield.
Actually, the planet itself would probably be much happier if civilization as we know it were to revert back to the stone ages.
Yeah, they're not bad but I like the Haas better.
Choose your weapon!
I use limes in my guacamole but lemon works as well. Now I want some. Grrrr

Will someone please think of the Ciabatta?

If that press conference is any indicator he might be too drunk to give the order.
I really don't like Sam Adams either. I'm not much on beer to be honest. Mom loved those strong, bitter beers. We carry 13 draft beers at my work and I can only palate a few of them. If I drink beer it's usually a Bud Light or a Mich Ultra. Yuengling is good and I actually like Rolling Rock.

It's awful. I tried it a couple of weeks ago when the Miller rep brought us a sample. Yuck.

Good morning. We get to sleep a bit later with hubby starting his new job today. We can sleep until 5:30 now. Of course I woke up at my normal 4:45 anyway. The clocks change this weekend so maybe that will help.
I must be off to work. Laterzzz
Spank me Vladdy! Spank me!
“Look, the perception of Obama, of him and his potency across the world is one of such weakness," Palin told Fox News' Sean Hannity. "People are looking at Putin as one who wrestles bears and drills for oil. They look at our president as one who wears mom jeans and equivocates and bloviates.”
If Obama had the foresight of Bush, we'd invade Poland. #JS
And yet, we've been living the trickle down dream for over 4 decades now. How can that be?
Nope, haven't managed to get my taxes done as of yet. I've pretty much been sick the entire month of February between a cold and now allergies/sinus infection. I did check to see about what it will cost us but was estimating income because I had no idea what the actual number might be. That's why I am waiting until I do my taxes. I don't feel like screwing myself with my estimate. If need be I'll take the penalty this year.
Ah, cool then, volker.
So we can't afford healthcare for our citizens but we should invade Russia? I'm so confused.
Christ on a cracker these people are idiots. Seriously, Florida. WTF??
The fact that Florida's Republican governor and legislature refused to expand Medicaid under Obamacare was bad enough. Florida has the second highest number of uninsured people among all the states. About one quarter of Florida's population was uninsured before the health exchange opened in January. That's 3.8 million people. If the state were to expand Medicaid, one million of them would get Medicaid coverage. But it gets worse. Florida isn't just turning away Medicaid expansion money, they've jeopardized existing funding by refusing to comply with federal Medicaid law. The state has decided to impose a limit of six emergency room visits per year to Medicaid patients. The feds say Florida can't do that, Florida says, sure we can. And now they're losing funding.
Now keep in mind that many, many Medicaid recipients are seniors and have health issues. This should work out well...Oh yeah, can we say death panels now?
I can't say I miss it. Yes, I have to put up with some stupid stuff down here and yeah, now and then we get Tropical Weather like Hurricanes but all in all I can expect nice weather most of the year.
RiF, I don't know how you stand it. That is too cold. I just took dog for his sniff and pee session in my capris, t-shirt and flip flops. It's going to rain and get a bit cooler soon, though.
Of course the bad people won. When the game is set up so only the select few can possibly win that is always the end result. Sociopaths are in full control of the planet.
