Food TV

"We can put a man on the moon but we can't put a spoon in the microwave."
Tyler Florence host of "How to Boil Water" on Food TV.

Indeed. Words that describe much more than Tyler intended when he made the comment while warming tortillas for Roasted Green Chile-Chicken Enchiladas. They also perfectly characterize our tax dollars at work. So many basic needs are not addressed while the big deals go through.

Katrina was a warning... our second major warning in four years. Last summer should have been a drill for FEMA, yet Brownie and Dubya were content with a business as usual approach. The possibility of another disaster looms large. A leader who could handle the challenge would be nice, wouldn't it?

I have had the unshakable, uneasy feeling that something huge is going to happen and it won't be good.

On a lighter note, Roasted Green Chile-Chicken Enchiladas

Mmmm....

Perhaps it is time for WORKERS...we seem to have way to many people who want to be LEADERS. Perhaps it is time to instill a work ethic in our children and not program them to be consumers and users.

Leaders....the word has been debased.

Since you and I both live on the Gulf of Mexico, this has definately been a "wake up call" and I do believe the coastal states especially need to be very concerned about who heads this country in the future. The St. Pete Times today noted that we can expect a continuation of this weather pattern for the next 10-20 years. A very scary thought!
