There's a story, of course.

On What Planet?

Today, Ben Bernanke shamelessly told Congress:

...we have a very good health care system, let me just say that. And we have the most technologically advanced system in the world. And, on average, we get our -- on average, we get our money's worth, in the sense that the benefits -- studies have shown that the benefits, in terms of reduced mortality from heart attacks and so on....
Try telling that to the Prince George's County mother of twelve-year-old Deamonte Driver, who died of a toothache Sunday.

Before You Know It...

[click on image to enlarge]'s Friday and time
to board the Ark!

And everybody's invited to
Weekend Cat Blogging,
hosted by Kate in the Kitchen.
I've had a sneak preview, so I can say with no small amount of confidence to bring your appetite. There are lots of yummies.

Good Enough To Eat...

Hats off to Martha Stewart's Shrimp and Ginger Stir-Fry for the inspiration.

I added celery [3 large stalks, cut into bite-size pieces at an angle] to the vegetables [1 yellow pepper, 1 orange pepper, 2 red pepper and 2 bunches scallions], and a handful of shredded carrots and about 4 cups of dry baby spinach for the final minute. Instead of the sugar, I substituted 1 packet of Splenda®.

Stalking the Wild Felinus...

A-ha, spotted at last!

This morning, Taboo is as elusive as a mysterious ghost cat in the wilderness.
May all of you who board
Friday's Ark
have better luck capturing your wild kitties than I have.

All ashore that's going ashore, we're about to get underway!

For Weekend Cat Bloggers aboard, the port of call is no longer a surprise. A view of the harbor has appeared, and it looks like alot of fun and laughs are to be had on shore leave at kitchenMage.

Everybody bring goodies to help usher out that goofy year of the dog, and welcome in the year of the sweetly smart, little piggies.
[My mom's a Fire Boar!]

If we're lucky, maybe we can prevail upon
Maruschka, Fridolin & Rosa,
over at Rosa's Yummy Yums,
to bring some of their mom's brilliant
Cantonese Lemon Chicken (see recipe).

So, all you tender-hearted homebodies
and brave-hearted beasties,

brush up on your Lion Dance,
and wake up the web.

Mary Told A Little Lie...

Thanks to
Christy Hardin Smith

Mary told a little lie,
Her teeth were white as blow;
And everywhere that Mary went,
Her lies were sure to grow.

They followed her to court one day,
That was against the rule;
It made the bloggers laugh and play
To see the lies exposed.

And so Dick Cheney turned her out,
Yet still she sputtered lies,
FDL waited patiently near
Till Mary called Imus back.

"Why does the Veep love Mary so?"
The eager bloggers cry;
"Why, Mary loves the lies, you know,"
Arianna did reply.

F**k Off...

I wouldn't use the word 'fuck' in my blog,
because I don't want Bill Donohue
to know I think he's got his panties in a twist.
