The Summary of Life

From a friend, another one of those circulating e-mails that (I think) is really good:


1) No matter how hard you try, you can't baptize cats..
2) When your Mum is mad at your Dad, don't let her brush your hair.
3) If your sister hits you, don't hit her back. They always catch the
second person.
4) Never ask your 3-year old brother to hold a tomato.
5) You can't trust dogs to watch your food.
6) Don't sneeze when someone is cutting your hair..
7) Never hold a Dust-Buster and a cat at the same time.
8) You can't hide a piece of broccoli in a glass of milk.
9) Don't wear polka-dot underwear under white shorts.
10) The best place to be when you're sad is Grandpa's lap..


1) Raising teenagers is like nailing jelly to a tree.
2) Wrinkles don't hurt.
3) Families are like fudge...mostly sweet, with a few nuts
4) Today's mighty oak is just yesterday's nut that held its ground...
5) Laughing is good exercise. It's like jogging on the inside.
6) Middle age is when you choose your cereal for the fiber, not the toy.


1) Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional..
2) Forget the health food. I need all the preservatives I can get.
3) When you fall down, you wonder what else you can do while you're down there.
4) You're getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you once got from a roller coaster.
5) It's frustrating when you know all the answers but nobody bothers to ask you the questions.
6) Time may be a great healer, but it's a lousy beautician
7) Wisdom comes with age, but sometimes age comes alone.


1) You believe in Santa Claus.
2) You don't believe in Santa Claus.
3) You are Santa Claus.
4) You look like Santa Claus.

Yes, Miss California...


This is only the beginning.

UPDATE: Culinary no-no#111

Culinary no-no's

Did you catch this week’s Culinary no-no, #111?

It featured the story of former FDA Commissioner (and weirdo) David Kessler who led the tar and feather brigade against smoking. Kessler admits the next big policy battle, now that tobacco has been sent reeling, will be about food.

Kessler tells the Washington Post:
“The food the industry is selling is much more powerful than we realized. I used to think I ate to feel full. Now I know, we have the science that shows, we're eating to stimulate ourselves. And so the question is what are we going to do about it?"

Kessler thinks there are some funny things going on in the brain commanding poor innocent folks to eat 12 Twinkies at a crack.

"We did this with cigarettes. It used to be sexy and glamorous but now people look at it and say, 'That's not my friend, that's not something I want.' We need to make a cognitive shift as a country and change the way we look at food. Instead of viewing that huge plate of nachos and fries as a guilty pleasure, we have to . . . look at it and say, 'That's not going to make me feel good. In fact, that's disgusting.' "

I’m telling you, these nuts, and that’s what they are, won’t stop at smoking bans. How dare you order prosciutto with that mozzarella marinara! Don’t you know it’s KILLING YOU???!!!

My culinary no-no was yes-yes timely. this week reports:

If you make big bucks — or enjoy alcohol, cigarettes and Coke — the government might hit you up to pay for fixing the nation’s health care system. On Tuesday, the Senate Finance Committee peeked into vending machines and liquor stores, company payrolls and healthe savings accounts, looking for a mix of tax increases and spending cuts as a way to pay for a health overhaul — which could cost more than $1.5 trillion over 10 years.

Columnist David Harsanyi writes: 

The Center for Science in the Public Interest also wants government to 'pressure' food companies to produce healthier fare (because, god knows, there are barely any wholesome options available for the masses), dramatically raise taxes on alcohol (what fresh hell is this?) and dictate the level of sodium allowable in packaged and restaurant food.  The CSPI is the group that once laughably claimed that 150,000 people perish yearly from salt intake (the 'Forgotten Killer') despite lack of any evidence and the ongoing debate regarding the real effects of sodium.”

It started last November, and we’re seeing it creep more and more and more into our daily lives: government intervention, government control, the socialization of America.

Government wants to control your every move, from sun up to sundown, from cradle to coffin, for what you eat and drink and read and watch.



God, help us.
