Delicious Pecan Fruit Cake

Fruit Cake has a bad reputation as being dry and heavy like a brick.  I found this delicious recipe many years ago on the back of a cake mix.

Bourbon Sweet Potato Cookies




This cookie recipe will really add something different to your holiday list of cookies.  It is not overly sweet and full of flavors that just roll of your tongue.  It has real wow factor going for it. If you do make these for cookie exchanges and gift giving make sure you include the recipe because you will asked for it.

Nina Turner Has Joined The Sanders' Campaign

A few years ago Ohio State Senator Nina Turner burst on to the National Stage with her criticism of voter suppression in Ohio.  She has a unique style of getting her point across when she speaks.  The day she stood in front of MSNBC camera with a tee shirt that told the GOP to stay out of her panties, was the day I became of fan of hers.  Sometimes a women has to do what a women got to do to draw attention to a wrong, that includes being bombastic.

Watching the Outhouse Implode

Since D Day is on a sabbatical, It is time for some of his type of political wisdom. I will try to fill in for him.

Trump came along and has exposed the GOP base for what it is.  It is not Benghazi, or anything else like "no taxes" holds the GOP voter base together.  It is hate wrapped up in a pretty package called social issues. He throws nothing but hateful sound bites at the voter base and they lap it up. Lacking real ideas he say "Everything is going to be just great or Yuuge." He has not one policy in his campaign.

Hurricane Joaquin - Open Thread

I hope all of you are getting ready on the East Coast for this storm.  Right now it is a Cat 3 and that makes it very dangerous.  It will be pushing a high storm surge like Sandy.  Also the satellite and radar images are showing a lot of moisture.  That means inland flooding also. There has already been heavy rain in the target area so the ground is very saturated.

Tampa and Sarasota Birthday bash for Bernie Sanders

There was many who got together this past Labor Day Weekend to plan and help with Bernie Sanders campaign in the South West Coastal area of Florida.  Like the rest of South Florida this area is trending blue.  There will most definitely be a big turnout for a Sanders rally in this area.

V-J Day August 14, 1945 70th Anniversary of the end of WWII

My parents always reminded us growing up that August 14 was the end of WWII, the day Japan had surrendered.  I almost forgot about it until I just looked at the date on the computer as I made my internet rounds before I went to bed.  For my parents this a very important date, and they wanted us to understand how it shaped their lives.

My mother said that day everyone was waiting to hear if Japan was going to surrender.  The two atomic bombs had been dropped the week before and Japan was given an ultimatum to surrender or we would drop more.  My dad was on Saipan so my mother was glued to the radio for days.  She was listening to WKDKA from Pittsburg because that was the big station in her area, helping with the clean up after dinner when the news came from CBS New York. She and her sisters dropped everything they were doing and jumped in the Dairy truck and headed to town to celebrate.  My grandparents had a dairy and vegetable farm. Gas was rationed then so they only used the dairy truck because they made daily deliveries with it and was able to have more gas for it.

Fox Bimbo's

It has been a long while since I posted one of PsycoSuperMom's video.  This one landed on my Facebook page.  I am still laughing.  


Like she says, it works for randy old white guys.

July 29th. Bernie Sanders' For President House Parties.

Look at these numbers.  At this point in time 90,345 RSVPS's at 3.344 sites. Some of the site are large halls.  I had to change the numbers while posting this.  They are climbing tonight.  

Here is the site with the interactive map as to where you can go to attend the Nationwide Organizing Event.  I hope the media is paying attention to this.  You know they are convinced that he is not a major player in this election.  After all he is not going to buy any of their air time so how could he possibly be a serious candidate?
