A SAINT PATRICK’S DAY MEMORY

Many years ago, after my granddad retired, it didn’t take long being under granny’s foot when she tried to do her housework she issued an ultimatum… get a part time job or she’d make his life even more miserable than she already did. Being a fan of drinking beer, he got a job part-time tending bar at a tavern named Kelly Malone’s. Typical neighborhood place. Juke box, pool tables, a bowling machine and there was a moose head high on the wall,about 12-15 feet. St Patrick’s Day was like Christmas, New Years and the Fourth of July all rolled into one. The free corned beef and green beer flowed. It wasn’t a good day unless the local constabulary had to intervene at some point.

The second holiday he worked there he came home and said ‘You won’t believe what happened.’

‘What?’

‘Somebody got that damn moosehead down off the wall and stole it.’

It must have gotten really drunk outside. Imagine sobering up and finding a nasty,moth-eaten head in your living room and you can’t remember how it got there. Beer has been making people act stupidly for thousands of years.

    Michelle: Next Stop, Japan and Cambodia
    SHE JUST HAS TO GET AWAY FROM THAT AWFUL PLACE WITH THE WINDOWS THAT WON’T OPEN
    On the heels of the President and First Lady’s launch of the Let Girls Learn international girls education initiative, Mrs. Obama will travel to Japan and Cambodia from March 18-22, 2015.

    While in Tokyo, the First Lady will meet with Mrs. Akie Abe, the Spouse of the Prime Minister of Japan, and deliver remarks on the importance both countries place on international girls education.

    While in Cambodia, Mrs. Obama and Mrs. Bun Rany, the First Lady of Cambodia, will meet with high school students and hear directly how they benefit from community-led programs like Room to Read and the Peace Corps.

    Don’t forget the sightseeing:

    While in Siem Reap, the First Lady will also visit Angkor Wat
    THIS IS ANGKOR WAT

    This can’t possibly be a vacation, because Mrs. Obama already had vacations in December, January, and February. Right? Right??

    FCC chief to run gauntlet in defense of online rules

    I PREDICT THIS OBAMA STOOGE WILL BEHAVE EXACTLY THE SAME AS ALL THE OTHERS.SNEER AT THE COMMITTEE AND SAY NOTHING BECAUSE THEY’RE UNDER THE EMPEROR’S PROTECTION
    On Tuesday, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) chairman will make the first of five trips to Capitol Hill over the next two weeks to defend his decision to issue the toughest net neutrality rules the U.S. has ever seen.

    “This is supposed to be an independent body, so I think there will be questions asked about ‘How independent are you?’ ‘Who all are you taking your orders from?’ ” said Rep. Bob Latta (R-Ohio), the vice chairman of the House Energy and Commerce subcommittee on communications.

    Dem Rep. Adam Schiff Avoids Question on whether Hillary Clinton Signed Federal Form Asserting She Turned over All State Department Material
    The Democrats are nervous about whether Hillary signed the Federal Form asserting she had turned over all Government documents when she left the State Department. She clearly had not done that since she had all of her emails on her home server. This is the key question, and one Hillary is very vulnerable on.
    IF SHE HAD,IT WOULD HAVE BEEN A FELONY.AS IT IS,THEY CAN DO NOTHING.SHE KNEW EXACTLY WHAT SHE WAS DOING WHEN SHE DIDN’T SIGN THE FORM.

    Al Gore: ‘Put A Price on Carbon … Punish Climate Change Deniers’

    “[W]e need to put a price on denial in politics.”
    Gore believes that putting a price on carbon would force innovation in the fields of renewable energy by causing investors to funnel their capital to green companies and away from those involved with fossil fuels.
    In another quote, Gore stressed the need to “punish climate change deniers” — namely those politicians who have rejected “accepted science” whom he has decided need to “pay a price” for their denial.

    WHEN HE FINISHED BELLOWING THE 200 MILLION DOLLAR MAN JUMPED INTO HIS CHAUFFEUR-DRIVEN LIMOUSINE,SPED OFF TO THE AIRPORT TO BOARD HIS PRIVATE JET TO GO BACK TO ONE OF HIS MANSIONS.

    Obama refuses to renew 40-year-old emergency oil supply pact with Israel


    Anyone who still believes Obama is not an antisemite is either antisemitic himself or has eaten an overabundance of mushrooms. “US fails to renew emergency oil supply pact with Israel,“
    The agreement guaranteeing Israel’s oil supplies in wartime was first signed in 1975.
    THE ONLY MAN WITH THE BACKBONE TO STAND UP TO HIM WILL PROBABLY BE DEFEATED TODAY.WEEP FOR ISRAEL.THEY’RE ON THEIR OWN NOW.

    FROM DMF:
    Loyal Opposition and Patriotic Dissent:

    President Obama’s powers never cease to amaze. He has made it suddenly fashionable to question others’ patriotism for dissenting on foreign policy, and has turned the Democrats — yes, the Democrats — into a presidential guard who respond with unthinking fury to skepticism about their leader’s claims to ever-expanding executive power. …

    “During the Bush administration, none other than Hillary Clinton angrily lamented: ‘I’m sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and disagree with this administration, somehow you’re not patriotic.

    We need to stand up and say we’re Americans, and we have the right to debate and disagree with any administration.’ “We agree. The notion that Congress has a patriotic duty to be seen but not heard on Iran is absurd. But it serves at least one purpose, as it illustrates the hypocrisy of those who once proclaimed dissent to be patriotic.” — The Editors, The Washington Examiner

      there was another tavern on the next block where we’d go to sell fresh veggies and fruit from our garden.Well,I sold,granddad drank his beer.But I always got a genuine Italian beef dipped in juice and a coke for lunch.It was the best sammich I ever had.it was run by two guys named Ernie Grazioli and Whitey Marinelli.They had a B&W television behind the bar and a big antenna on the roof.We’d go ther sometimes when the cubs were home.The picture was awful,snowy and kept rolling,but we all watched it until Ernie got disgusted with the poor play of the alleged professional baseball players.He always had a cigar in his mouth and I never saw him light it.They asked us to grow them some zucchini,so we did.We had no idea you were supposed to pick them when they were about 10″ long.We just let them grow and they reached almost two feet long and weighed about 8 pounds.When we took them,I thought Ernie was going to have a stroke.They couldn’t use them,so we took them home.Having been through the Great Depression Granny never wasted anything.She sliced them,put them in a pot with some cooked hamburger meat,stewed tomatoes,onion and bell pepper.it was pretty good.

          you can also cube it and fix it like mashed potatoes,with some milk,butter and brown sugar.Granny made Butternut squash that way.She’d halve acorn squash and bake them with brown sugar.We grew almost everything we ate.

            The first year that the Cap’n and I were married I planted a little garden. We went away for 5 days in the summer and upon our return the Cap’n came flying into the house, just thrilled with the watermelon I had growing out back. But I didn’t plant a watermelon, I said. Turns out it was a cucumber, and I had planted the garden right over top of the septic tank.

    Boy, 15, and his friend ‘stabbed 52-year-old man to death outside McDonald’s because he accidentally spilled coffee on them’
    THAT’S CERTAINLY A VALID REASON TO STAB SOMEONE

    LOOKS REAL INTIMIDATING,DOESN’T HE?

    Antonio Muralles was leaving a McDonald’s in Stamford, Connecticut last Wednesday when he accidentally bumped into a group of teens
    The trio turned on him and ‘a 15-year-old boy stabbed him in the heart’
    With help from a narcotics informant, surveillance cameras and a witness, police were able to identify the group and have arrested two of them
    James McLamb, 22, has been charged in the death, as well as the 15-year-old, who has not been named because he is a juvenile
