What was the best Christmas Gift you've ever gotten?

Apparently no one who has stopped at my blog since last night's post has ever gotten a bad Christmas gift.

Either that, or you just drop your card and move on and don't read/comment. How disappointing. I was really looking forward this morning to bunches of comments.



Why did you think it was the best?

Was it something you asked for?

How long ago did you get that gift?

Who was it from?

What's the worst Christmas Gift you've ever gotten?

Why did you think it was the worst?

How long ago did you get that gift?

Who was it from? (You don't need to name names, you can use their title - mother, father, son, spouse or if you really must keep the givers identity a secret to protect national security, you can use an alias.)

Tomorrow's question will be "What was the best Christmas gift you've gotten?", so hold onto your answers and watch for the post tomorrow.

Prop 8 - The Musical

You've got to watch this video. Jack Black as Jesus.

Nuf said.

See more Jack Black videos at Funny or Die


And the finale, I won't spoil it for you, but all I can say is awesome!

Not enough votes for Auto Bailout?

Auto Bailout Lacks Enough Votes to Pass

It is December 3rd. I thought this was an EMERGENCY?

I thought they needed the money this month?

Are they seriously going to wait until it's almost too late? So that there are even more repercussions in the economy?

United Nations - Protection Laws for Gays

Have you read this article from The Advocate?

Vatican: Gays Don't Need Protection Laws - December 03, 2008 - Michelle Garcia, Advocate.com

Wow!

If I weren’t so angry, I’d be speechless.

The Advocate article states, “The resolution, Archbishop Celestino Migliore said, would ‘add new categories of those protected from discrimination’ and could lead to the decline of heterosexual marriage, Reuters reported Tuesday.”

Let’s connect the dots. Shall we?

These new categories of protection basically are seeking to end the criminality of homosexuality. As The Advocate article states, “Homosexuality is still punishable in at least 85 countries, including Afghanistan, Iran, Sudan, and Ghana. Some countries kill those who are found guilty of such an offense.”

So if the United Nations passes this, then heterosexual marriage will decline?

I’m not following here.

How can the decline of heterosexual marriage be the fault of homosexuals?

How can saving the lives of the poor souls who are being killed for being found guilty of the ‘offense’ of homosexuality cause the decline of heterosexual marriage?

How about we blame the decline of heterosexual marriage on what is really causing that decline?

It’s called failure to follow one of the Ten Commandments…

“Thou shalt not commit adultery.”

President Elect Barack Obama's announces Secty of State

Ok, I watched President Elect Obama's speech this morning. (I had a bit of trouble getting video of the entire speech, but finally found it on CNN. Watch about 3-4 minutes into President Elect Obama's speech.

Why does it seem like Hilary doesn't want to be there? She looks angry, bored, even disinterested. Look at her face as President Elect Obama announces that he is naming Hilary as his Secretary of State.

Did she have a root canal before the speech this morning?

Did someone steal her kitty cat?

Did she lose her best friend?
I realize she must be terribly, terribly disappointed to not be our new President Elect, but she has obviously accepted the position of Secretary of State, why the sour puss?

Leftovers and more Leftovers

Just a quick share. We made a 22 pound Turkey for Thanksgiving, so we had a lot of leftovers. Leftover Turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes. We had potato pancakes with our eggs for brunch today.

Now is the time to get creative with the Turkey. Tonight I made Campbell's Creamy Chicken Enchiladas, but I substituted Turkey for Chicken. The family loved them and told me they'd like to see me make this on a regular basis. It's not as good as the recipe I used years ago, but since I couldn't find that one, this one will do. (The recipe I used to use didn't include a 'cream of ~' soup and it had kind of a white sauce, no tomatoes or salsa.)

Tomorrow night I'm making Campbell's Turkey A La King. I think between lunch sandwiches and Monday's dinner we will finally be out of Turkey.
