The Bail-out failed.

In your face Bush!!

Please read this excerpt from the the New York Times :"It was a catastrophic political defeat for President Bush, who had put the full weight of the White House behind the measure and had lobbied wavering Republicans in intensely personal telephone calls on Monday morning before the vote. "

Here is a link to the article in entirety


My friend sent this to me the other day. It made me smile. Especially today, when I really needed it. Thanks Shimil!!! :)

We love Long Beach's neighborhood picnic

I really like this group and I like their message of neighboorhood unity. Not so hot on Suja Lowenthal though. However, I feel that as citizens of Long beach we can eat on her dime since we had to pay for a special election when she decided to run for the 2nd District Councilseat while she was a member of the Board of Education. Sigh . . .

Hope to see you all there.

Grandma Piggie and the lack of internet!!!

Hey everyone!

Once again, I missed the post of the daring Bakers.  I have been in Arkansas for the last almost three weeks, checking on my much adored Grandma Piggie.

She recently had knee surgery and in the aftermath had a stroke.   After daily reports about her weakened condition. My friend Janet, got me a ticket, and the boys and I have been out here since.  Ever since our arrival, she has been getting much better.  

I finally got online today after being at her house with no internet, no cable and no dvd player.

I can not wait to get back to Long Beach, my camera, and my CSA.  
When I get back, I will grovel to the daring bakers and try to get back in and actually make something. :)
