I just finished Jello’s newest sensation, pudding that tastes like ice cream sandwiches. Well, it was supposed to taste like an ice cream sandwich. I actually tasted like chocolate pudding.  They have other flavors as well, like Banana Cream Pie, which tastes exactly like banana pudding, and lemon meringue pie, which tastes suspiciously like lemon pudding.

I had a similar experience once, with the Jones cola brand. I seen the dumbest flavor of pop and of course I had to try it. My uncle brought over a special limited edition cola pack that featured Turkey and gravy pop.

Anyone who wants to drink Turkey gravy pop needs some help. I did try it, and for me, the experience was nothing like mom’s home made turkey dinner. Not only that, there is just something wrong with drinking what you should be eating.  What’s next? Baked Root Beer?

I admit it. I…

Fake CNN email used as dirty trick in South Carolina

In what appears to be a last ditch attempt to halt Newt Gingrich’s late momentum in South Carolina, a fake CNN Breaking News alert was emailed to state Republican activists early Thursday morning claiming that the former House Speaker pressured his ex-wife to have an abortion.

CNN did not send out the email alert.


The email alert was sent from fake account made to look like a CNN breaking news email address: “”

“A source close to Marianne Gingrich tells CNN that former House Speaker Newt Gingrich forced her to abort a pregnancy conceived during the affair that preceeded her marriage to Gingrich,” the fake email reads.

Marianne Gingrich, who went public this week with charges that Gingrich once asked her for an “open marriage” while he was having an extramarital affair, has not made that claim.

“An ABC…

Especially when one of the young people I know and am connected to on Facebook posts this! (And NO she is not in the military, nor is she a friend of my military son- she worked for me a few years ago.)

At a time when our president and other politicians tend to
apologize for our country’s prior actions, here’s a refresher on how
some of our former patriots handled negative comments about our
JFK’S Secretary of State, Dean Rusk, was in France in the early 60’s when
DeGaule decided to pull out of NATO. DeGaule said he wanted all US
military out of France as soon as possible.
Rusk responded,
“Does that include those who are buried here?”
DeGaule did not respond.
You could have heard a pin drop.

lightly in the darkened room
roll out mats and
smooth cloth to flatten

rest and peace

Savoring Every Bite

My father would share many of his memories and stories growing up in Sicily.  His parents had moved to America before he was born but soon realized they missed their home and lifestyle too much.  My grandmother was then pregnant with my father so they waited for his birth and when he was a few months old, returned to Sicily.  At the age of 17 and on his own, he left Sicily to come back to his birthplace.  My father was always proud to say his was born an American and never returned back to Sicily, not even to visit. 

There were many things he missed and spoke of; his family, brothers and sisters, the abundance of fresh seafood and freshly prepared dishes and the ocean he swam in almost every day.  And the lemon trees growing in his family’s orchard!  I could tell what was most precious to him…
