He wrote a very good article for Counterpunch a few days ago and there is a follow up video interview that I think will help explain some missing information that is not being talked about right now concerning the Troika and Greece.

DSCN1963

 

This little beauty is a Digbyana Orchid.  This one dates back the the 17th century and originally came from Central America. It's name is Brassavoa nodosa Lady of the Night after a Italian Doctor, Antonio Musa Brassavoa. This is an original species but there are hybridized variations now.  This one is one of the easiest orchids to grow. At night it has a lovely citrus smell almost like lime.  That is why it's nick name is Lady of the Night.  This plant is around 15 years old.

Hillary Clinton Call Out The GOP By Name For Voter Suppression

In her acceptance speech for the Barbara Jordan Gold Medallion For Leadership, given to her at Texas Southern University in Houston, Hillary Clinton doesn't mince words about the systematic suppression of voter rights in this country.  She points out in detail the abuses in North Carolina, Texas, Wisconsin and Florida. But she doesn't stop there, she calls out GOP candidates by name that as governors signed laws that made voting more difficult for citizens. As she names them, she makes it know just what they did sign into law that will hurt voters.

Peach Pie Recipe From Canned Peaches

Romona and I had a discussion about old cookbooks on face book recently.  This recipe was adapted from the cookbook that we were fondly remembering.  I still have my worn out copy and one day my kids will get to throw it away. It the Better Homes and Garden Cookbook.  This edition was first published in 1953 until the late 1950's. I was a very popular cookbooks because it was full of step by step pictures on how to cook. I have owned other copies of this cookbook over the years but gave one each to my 2 oldest grandkids. I have a current copy but still love the one from the 1950's.

APPLESAUCE RAISIN SQUARES WITH BROWN BUTTER FROSTING

I have had this recipe since high school and it came from McCall’s magazine.  For a long time I used the clipping from the magazine until I started transferring my recipes to 4″ x 6″ cards and I added that it came from McCall’s.  The magazine has been out of publication now for over a decade.  But in its hay day it offered great recipes that anyone could make.
