Cows! Dancing! Waht moooore could you want?

Michael Avenatti has learned a lot about strip tease from his client!

Today most of the daytime shows on MSNBC were talking about how Avenatti keeps "drip, drip, dripping" more and more about Stormy Daniels and Trump.

I believe Avenatti has learned a lot from his client. Strip tease is about not revealing everything at once - the dancers do not walk out naked or even close to naked. They come out many times fully dressed and gradually remove their clothes, turning up the heat a little at a time.

That is what Avenatti and Stormy Daniels are doing to Trump - turning up the heat.

Eventually something is going to blow - either Trump or the GOP.

Orange & Stormy Cocktail from AM Joy's guest!

2 oz. rum
2 oz. bitters
ginger beer

Build over ice and stir gently!

Perfect for drinking while watching the Stormy Daniels interview tonight.

I don't drink anymore, but this sounds tempting.

Liberal Redneck - Ex Tillerson

I love the bit where he compares this administration to Catch 22! Listen for it.

In honor of John Bolton's appointment - a Tom Lehrer revival!

In another thread I posted Tom Lehrer's We Will All Go Together When We Go but then I realized that Lehrer had many songs that are appropriate to the danger that having Bolton in the Trump White House poses to us today. Lehrer wrote and performed his songs in the 1960s while the Cold War was at its height. I was in high school then and many of us thought we would not live to be adults.

Here we go, a revival of the amusing nihilist side of Tom Lehrer:

Graham: Trump firing Mueller would be 'the beginning of the end of his presidency'

By Jennifer Hansler, CNN

Updated 11:00 AM ET, Sun March 18, 2018

(CNN)Sen. Lindsey Graham gave a stern warning Sunday to President Donald Trump against firing special counsel Robert Mueller.

"As I said before, if he tried to do that, that would be the beginning of the end of his presidency," the South Carolina Republican said on CNN's "State of the Union."

"The only reason that Mr. Mueller could be dismissed is for cause. I see no cause when it comes to Mr. Mueller," Graham said, later adding he believed the Mueller was "doing a good job."

Graham called for Mueller to be able to carry out his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election "independent of any political influence."

Sometimes Lindsey is more interested in country than party.

KIDS! A Randy Rainbow Song Parody

A little early for St. Patrick's Day, but I made Colcannon last night

On impulse the other day I picked up a couple of leeks, then went and searched for recipes. The one that sounded good was Colcannon, a combination of leeks, cabbage and mashed potatoes. While completely different from anything we have had before, both my husband and I liked it.

Here is how I made it, a mix of several different recipes from various sources.


6 medium Yukon Gold potatoes, cubed
4 tablespoons butter
2-3 leeks, chopped, both green and white parts
1/2 head (about 1 pound) of cabbage, shredded
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup sour cream
salt & pepper to taste

Put potatoes in a sauce pan and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil, cook until fork goes in easily. Drain then mash with milk and sour cream. Season to taste.

Melt butter in large pan, saute leeks, garlic, and half the cabbage until tender. Mix in the rest of the cabbage and the mashed potatoes. Top with butter as desired.

NOTE: I do not add salt or pepper when I cook (an effort to cut our salt use). We add salt as desired at the table and seldom use pepper at all.

This was a very different and interesting dish - it would be great with corned beef, or some reviewers suggested putting beef stew on top. We had it with pork chops.
