The Flu Has Us Right Where It Wants Us!!!

VICTORY IS MINE!!!

VICTORY IS MINE!!!

At some point in the future, if any of us survive 🙂 we’re gonna look back at April/May 2009 and wonder why we had such short attention spans.

The CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey, released Tuesday morning, indicates that concern over the flu, also known as the swine flu, has diminished somewhat, with 17 percent of people questioned saying they are worried that they or someone in their family will fall victim to the flu. An additional 20 percent say there were worried in the past few weeks but are no longer concerned. Sixty-three percent of those polled say they were never worried, but the poll suggests that there is a large gender gap on that measure. Among men, 71 percent said they have never worried about the flu; for women, that figure drops to 55 percent.

In other words, we’re gonna let down our guard, start sneezing in each others faces and wiping snot on the doorknobs again.  All because the media stopped talking about the very real possibility that this thing will linger on, mutate, come back, and cause bazillions of deaths.

You were warned.

Can I say a few words about cheesecake?

I Loves Me Some Cheesecake!

I Loves Me Some Cheesecake!

We are a family that likes cheesecake.  There’s nothing wrong with that.  Life without cheesecake would be a life lacking in rich, creamy goodness.

Gail Loves Cheesecake, TOO!

Gail Loves Cheesecake, TOO!

Yet, despite our fondness for cheesecake, we didn’t eat THIS particular cheesecake.  It was much too early in the day for such a dessert — especially since we were at the local Denny’s for breakfast.  There are cheese-related dishes that go well with brekky… omelets, scrambled eggs with cheddar, cheese on the hash browns, all perfectly acceptable breakfast fare.  Cheesecake?  Not so much.

But we do enjoy cheesecake.  But in its proper place — as a dessert following a fine dinner.  Prime rib, perhaps.  Or as a special treat on its own.  But not with breakfast.  Especially if you’ve had pancakes… which are plenty sweet on their own after being bathed in rich, maple syrup.  Now that’s good eatin’, I don’t care WHO you are!

Still, nothin’ wrong with cheesecake! 

And when you come right down to it, there’s nothing I enjoy more in the world that going out to breakfast on a Saturday morning with my beloved wife, my bestest friend in the whole wide world!

Words That Bite the Hiney

"Honest!  I Was Just Foolin'!"

"Honest! I Was Just Foolin'!"

I’m surprised it took this long. 

Virginia gubernatorial candidate Brian Moran is hammering his Democratic primary rival Terry McAuliffe for backing Hillary Clinton instead of Barack Obama throughout much of the presidential race.

The Moran campaign is hoping a new 60-second radio ad running on black radio stations in Virginia will remind African-American voters — likely to be a crucial voting block in the June 9 Democratic primary — of McAuliffe’s full-throated support for Clinton.

It wouldn’t be that big of a deal if McAullife had been an Ed Rendell kind of supporter.  The Pennsylvania governor was a big Hillary fan, but I don’t recall him saying anything particularly negative about Obama during the campaign.  McAuliffe was out there almost every day — even after all hope for Hillary’s nomination was lost — and he even introduced her on the day where Obama had the nomination officially sewn up as “the Next President of the United States.”

These guys seriously need to realize that we have video tape, and that some folks will REMEMBER the things they said — words that can come back and bite them in the hiney!

Sunday Sampler

At the moment, I’m sitting on a bench at Arundel Mills outside the Bed Bath & Beyond. The aisles are narrow in there and i have a good upper body sway going as I try to walk.

Gail’s looking for a body pillow for herself and some satin sheets for me. We read online that satin sheets can help Parkies turn in bed, which currently presents a real difficulty.

So, here I sit, watching folks walk by, guarding a bag of Burger King leftovers from the food court. The doggies are in for a treat!

“No go” on the West Coast Vacay!

It means admitting something to myself that I really do not want to admit, but it is what it is…

I just don’t think I’m physically up to a long trip.  I’m wobbly, it’s hard to walk more than very short distances, I wear out very quickly.  At the end of a REGULAR day, I’m exhausted from the effort of just moving.

I hope everyone understands that this was not an easy decision for me.  And I hope they realize that they are welcome to visit any time they want to!
