Please don't feed the hungry

Because we are the government and we will save them from a terrible fate.

“The Dept. of Health and Hospitals ordered the staff at the Shreveport-Bossier Rescue Mission to throw 1,600 pounds of donated venison in garbage bins — and then ordered then to douse the meat with Clorox — so other animals would not eat the meat,” the Fox report notes.

Again, just so we’re all on the same page, that’s 1,600 pounds of venison.

“Deer meat is not permitted to be served in a shelter, restaurant or any other public eating establishment in Louisiana,” a Health Dept. official said in an email to Fox News.

“While we applaud the good intentions of the hunters who donated this meat, we must protect the people who eat at the Rescue Mission, and we cannot allow a potentially serious health threat to endanger the public,” the statement adds.

 The meat had been donated from a group called Hunters for the Hungry. They are rightfully outraged, as is the Mission staff who have been serving deer meat for years.

Crazy people or citiots or borg like adherents do shit like this..What the Hell?

Feeble tips for fellow strugglers

Or better to do a job right then quickly.

Note to self, when putting honey in the Microwave to re-liquefy one should check to make sure the top is popped off, much less explosive and cleaner that way .... Just saying.

Lord love a duck

Someone must be able to answer this question.

Why is it that men think they need retina eye scan level security clearance to open a dishwasher, yet at the same time don't get that they need it to take Tupperware and cutlery out of this house?

In memory of  Otis Damon Harris, lead singer of Temptations,

Brings back Memories of my childhood, My Mamma loved and listened to this allllll the time.

It at first you don't succeed

Try, try again:

Sore throat child from yesterday obviously was consumed with her ice cream mission.

She woke up sometime during the night and ate half a tub of chocolate brownie fudge ripple. She might have gotten away with it except she fell asleep on the couch with the tub on her lap, face smeared with evidence.

Yup a real criminal mastermind that one.

When I found her I wasn't sure if I was damn proud of her perseverance or P.O.'d at her sneakiness...

I've decided a combination of both is fully appropriate in this case.  I am surprised she isn't sick from eating that much, but currently am looking for ways to get her to stop bouncing off the ceiling and walls ( of her room) from all that sugar....

I'll get right on that

Apparently I am the worst Mamma in the whooole wiiiiiide woooooooorld because I don't understand that Ice cream is the perfect breakfast for a child with a sore throat....

I really hate that phase between sick and better, don't you?

Patience, Grey, Patience......

Baby it's cold outside

I took the kiddos to the local outdoor rink today.....


Now I don't like the cold much and standing or slipping around in a minus 23 wind is not my idea of fun. However I had visions of tired, happy kiddos sleeping soundly tonight dancing in my head, damned if I was going to be the one to call it a day.  I am Mama, hear me roar, I can take it, I've given birth for crying out loud what's a wee arctic freeze breeze compared to that?.

Heh they dropped like flies,

One of the kiddos: Mom, is there going to be hot chocolate when we get back.

Grey ( That would be me): Sure is

Kiddo :I'm getting cold.

Another Kiddo: I'm getting tired of falling down and I gotta pee.

Grey ( with relief and happiness seeping into my frozen regions) : Does that mean we all agree to cut this short and go home. Kinda a shame to leave already......

Kiddo: Mom I think my socks are the only thing keeping my toes on my feet.

Grey  (again me, doing a mental jig at how easy I am getting let off on this polar experience): Well then that settles it, we can't have parts falling off.  Hot chocolate and muffins for  everyone!.

obligatory Valentines post

After all these years, still crazy about the Cattleman. When we decided to make a permanent arrangement I told him not only did I love him, but more importantly I LIKED him.

I think at the time he was a wee bit confused and perhaps he was a a tad insulted. I know he gets it now...

Heh, what can I say?

In honour of the day, the song we played at our wedding:

This is Libby Davies

Darn it, I despise when bloggers pick the least flattering photo to make a point, I do not want to be one of those bloggers so can I have a do over?

This is Libby Davies.

Marginal improvement. Surely I can do better.  Shall I try again?

This is Libby Davies.

I give up, I guess Libby is just NOT what you would call photogenic.

So this is a fair representation of what Libby Davies looks like.

 photo libby-davies.jpg

Libby Davies is a politician. Not just any politician but a member of her Majesty's Loyal Opposition. Not just any member of her Majesty's Loyal Opposition, but the NDP critic of Health.  Health you say? Yup Health.

This is Libby Davies.

 photo libby2.jpeg

She has tabled a Private Member's Bill in an effort  to restrict the little people's salt intake, all in the name of Health of course. Because you can tell she is all about being healthy....right?

Physician (she's not) heal thy self first (she wont).

To be fair I would oppose the Libby Davies / nanny staters of life even if they appeared  in Victoria Secret's runway show or the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition. However the blatant hypocrisy and  stupidity of these types is usually not this obvious....It's rather stunning really.

Talk about your bloated overlord......

A little ditty that comes to mind when ever I think of dear Libby, that's fairly normal right?

Wanna see what State run Health Care will get ya?

No corporate money hungry, penny pinching, uncaring capitalists here, just your average government department I'd say:

“There was a lack of care, compassion, humanity and leadership,” said Robert Francis, chairman of the inquiry, who said the scandal was a “disaster.”
Speaking in the House of Commons, Mr. Cameron said, “Hundreds of people suffered from the most appalling neglect and mistreatment.
“There were patients so desperate for water that they were drinking from dirty flower vases. And relatives were ignored or even reproached when pointing out the most basic things which could have saved their loved ones from horrific pain or even death. 

What a relief that health care is "free".... Cameron thinks some people should be *gasp* fired?

I guess jail is out of the question?

Dear bloated overlord

So many post ideas, not enough time.

Take for example the post about the demise of the penny this week. Didn't happen, now it's old news and hardly blog worthy. Gone..

Then there was the brilliant ( sadly)  reoccurring post about "Bullying in schools  wouldn't be an issue if the administration and teachers didn't model  it so well". Imagine that violent child pretending to save the world with an imaginary grenade? At school? That'll learn ya.

Zombie apocalypse commercials at the super bowl: You know you are passe and mainstream when you are a super bowl ad.

A woman's work is never done.

Are you ready for some football?

Cattleman cooking up his world ( family) favorite Jambalaya and corn bread to bring to the potluck. Gathering with Family, family no matter how you make it, is a goooood thing.
