Yay! The blog is back!


After 24 hours during which none of my posts showed, things seem to be back to normal here.

But not to worry - first there's my article on Chavez's threat to cut off oil to the EU, which you can read at Newsvine. Then there's yesterday's podcast, where Monica Showalter reminded us that Hugo's threat seems to match Putin's similar threat, too.

Later today I'll have another article at NJ Voices.

On a personal note, I'm looking for a good recipe for Yorkshire pudding; if any of you would like to contribute, please add it in the comments section.

But enought about me (at least for now), let's do a quick roundup:
They say a picture's worth a thousand words, and Brian Faughnan's speaks volumes.

No Mas, Senator, says Cassandra, who's got the race card. Obama says Republicans will use race to stoke fear. It's the Republicans who can't keep themselves from calling attention to anyone's race, I tell you!

Then there's the seal of Obama. Macranger asks,
As I noted before the seal shows what appears to be an eagle in retreat with it’s back turned on the Flag. Couple this with Obama's desire to "Remake" and "Disarm" America and we have all the reason in the world to be alarmed and ask questions.

Via Alcibiades, The Great Seal of Obamaland?

"Vero possumus"
Considering that most Americans don't speak Latin, and that possums are known for sleeping, having the word "possum" in there is ... unfortunate.
And then there's Dame Edna, who always refers to "possums", too.

And . . . . Cassandra Blows the Lid Off Melanin-Gate!
Obama blinks on playing the race card
Here comes the race card.

Larwyn's been keeping up with things, and she's sent a truckload of links - here are a few:
The FHA time bomb
The Federal Housing Administration – the very agency the Bush Administration and Congress trumpet as the solution to the mortgage crisis – has announced that it suffered a $4.6 billion loss last year. This is one of the worst financial performances ever for the government's multibillion-dollar mortgage insurer.
Seriously folks, seeing how government does things, do you really want to turn over your health care to them?

Sen. Kent Conrad, (D-N.D.) is angry about negative publicity on his beach cottage, while Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.) let his lender write the bailout bill.

Yorkshire Pudding

Drippings from roast beef
Vegetable oil, if necessary
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs

Measure pan drippings, adding enough oil to drippings, if necessary, to measure 1/4 cup. Place hot drippings in 9-inch square pan; place pan in oven and heat until hot. Increase oven temperature to 450°F. In medium bowl, beat flour, milk, 1/2 teaspoon salt and the eggs with wire whisk just until smooth. Pour batter into pan of drippings and oil. Bake 18 to 23 minutes or puffy and golden brown (pudding will puff during baking but will deflate shortly after being removed from oven). Cut pudding into squares; serve immediately with beef.

From Betty Crocker, believe it or not. But really, really good! :)

Glad to see your blog is working again.

"Vero possumus" = "I see the possums's ass". Which played backwards yields "Vote for me and YOUR ass is grass."

At least in Sinclair Lewis's It Can't Happen Here President, Buzz Windrip, changed the Great Seal because it didn't fit the needs of the modern age. But at least Sen. Obama's version is suitable safe and squishy. Looking more like a detergent logo then the symbol of a great nation.

From the venerable old LA restaurant, The Tam O'Shanter:

Yorkshire Pudding

2 cups flour
1 cup milk
4 eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt

Sift together 2 cups flour and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Make a well and add 4 beaten eggs. Blend; add 1 cup milk and beat continuously for 10 minutes. Let stand 1 hour. Heat oven to 450 degrees. Place 12-hole muffin pan in oven to heat. When hot, grease pan (butter, margarine, non-stick spray, etc.). Pour equal amounts of batter into muffin tins, and bake for 40 minutes.
Serve with Toad in The Hole.
