Rest in peace, Davy Jones.
Hey, has anyone else noticed that his passing did not garner the huge hoo-rah that Whitney Houston's did? Is it because he wasn't a drug addict? (Snarky of me, I admit, but still ...)
I'm still ranting a bit about getting our priorities straight. The tornado victims in Indiana are important. Rush Limbaugh is not. We should have all resolved to ignore him a long time ago. His numbers would have tanked, revenues would have dropped, his show would have been cancelled and he would not have been around to publicly humiliate a young women by calling her a slut and a prostitute. The growing tension between Iran and Israel is important. (I know several young men in uniform and I would hate to see them deployed to the Middle East if that situation blows up.) Lindsay Lohan on Saturday Night Live is not. Why are we so fascinated with famous drug addicts?
The upcoming Presidential election is important. What makes it hard to take seriously are some of the antics and bloopers put out there by the Republican candidates as they get closer to their primary.
Gas prices are back up in the stratosphere, with premium over the $4.00 mark. Ah, Keystone, we hardly knew ye.
On a lighter note, I posted the recipe for my Mushroom Risotto with Sherry and Cream on the food blog, so here is the link. I also have a few other recipes coming down the pike in the next few days. I told you I kept cooking during my little hiatus from the blog. Heck, I even wrote some of them down!
And because I don't always cook for the family, a shot of my devastatingly handsome son at Longhorn Steakhouse, eating a porterhouse the size of my head ;-)
