Thoughts Before Christmas

Thank you Christoper Reeve. His determination to walk again and his willingness to be in the public eye helped to change how spinal injury patients are treated. Kevin Everett is up and about four months after severely injuring his spinal cord, proving once again the power of science and medicine. Praying is good if you can't do anything else, but it isn't the most constructive action to take in a crisis. God gave us brains and he expects us to use them and amazing things can happen when we do.

Wouldn't payroll and the costs of being open seriously cut into the profit margin?

I know television has already let the cat out of the bag and the rest of the world knows that The Decider is an idiot, but now he's going to take the show on the road and let them experience his stupidity in person. Hopefully he'll be able to properly exit stage right the next time.

Last year I made an Alton Brown Rib Roast recipe (it's not on the site anymore) and this year I'm going to make Paula Deen's Foolproof Standing Rib Roast with my own seasonings and a homemade Horseradish Sauce. Our starter will be Golden Beet Soup (if Cosentino's gets them in this morning), otherwise I'm going to have to think on the fly. The accompaniments will be Macaroni and Blue Cheese with Chives and Spicy Southern Greens (my own recipe). It should be fun.


  1. MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR to you, your Mom, and your pup, DEB! -Rick
