        It's funny because she specifically said that he is endorsing commercially slaughtered horses, and I reread that piece and the only thing said is that donkey is perfectly suited for American pastures....maybe the horse patties are stinging her eyes and she can't read too well...

    Ok, so what is up with the nutso horse activist on the Zimmern thread. She seems to be unraveling even before our eyes...

      JBJ and I were just talking about that....She may need some professional help from my friends.

    • ™©JbJiNg!eŚ®™@Truth

      No kidding! I can picture her face bright red, ready to explode, smoke coming out the ears! I bet she would be a blast at parties. *_*

    • Truth™@RichHead, JBJ

      Normally, I like to bust chops with the best of 'em, but in this case, I will just leave her be. She may wind up on the roof with automatic weapons.

        You might be correct Bro...Probably works with Eric Holder.

      • ™©JbJiNg!eŚ®™@Ms Grammar

        We are going to Copenhagen, Berlin, St. Petersburg (2 days), Tallinn, Stockholm, Helsinki, and possibly making a stop in Amsterdam on the way home. I am very excited about this trip.

        March 22, 2012 at 4:25 pm |
        • Jdizzle McHammerpants ♫♫

          Amsterdam? I'd be excited, too.

    QOD...What is the most delicious sandwich you've EVER had?

    Mine was today: grilled peanut butter, banana, and sweet bacon* on raisin cinnamon bread. *Sweet bacon is crumbled bacon heated up in a little butter and brown sugar. After it's heated, it's placed on the sanwich beween the bread and the peanut butter. Banana next and then top slice of bread. Grilled in butter. OMG – I feel my arteries closing, but what a way to go! No one gets out of here alive...I plan to go with a happy mouth and full tummy (or is that the other way around???) :)

    • AleeD®@Ms. Grammar

      Hey! How have you been?

      Fave Sammich? That would be the spectacular Cobb Club Sandwich.
      Applewood smoked bacon
      Hardboiled eggs
      Imported bleu cheese
      On toasted pumpernickel

      It is as huge and delicious as it sounds.

      March 22, 2012 at 2:46 pm |
    • MicheleG™

      WOWWWWWWWW! NEVER have I had such a concoction.

      My fav sandwich is sourdough, butter on one slice, mayo on the other, tons of avocado, Black Forest ham, a Provolone cheese slice or two, alfalfa sprouts (a cloud of them), and a nice big slice of Beefsteak tomato.

      Ah yes, and a big glass of milk.

        That sounds yummy.

        March 23, 2012 at 12:19 pm |
    • Truth™@QOD

      This will sound really odd, but peanut butter and bacon on anything toasted. Absolute freakin Nirvana. And I am sure healthy too.

      Brie and apple with drizzle of homemade honey mustard on a crusty baguette. Simple yet very yummy. My hubby and kids like to put turkey or chicken on theirs – ick.

      March 22, 2012 at 4:17 pm |
      • ™©JbJiNg!eŚ®™@dnfromge

        Oooh, I never thought to put apple on it. I like the brie, butter, baguette. Plain but oh so good.

        March 22, 2012 at 4:34 pm |
        • dnfromge

          I like Granny Smith – just a little tartness with the creamy brie!

        I'm still not at all cool with it. If y'all need to say things, do it over here, not right under the feature that our contributors are sending to their friends and family.

        It just hurt my heart to see that.

    Good morning Happy Klatschers! Researching things to do on my upcoming trip I came across a recommendation (from a local) to go here in Helsinki for meat pies (or Mildred would say "pasties"). I hear Finns are fond of their reindeer, so anyone here ever try it??

    March 22, 2012 at 11:28 am |

  15. Truth™, it slowly danws on me...

    Oh no, does this mean I am actually going to have to watch Jets games if they're on out here.....?

    And Mary, have at 'em. We used to get a lot of those when I was in Armonk. Pain in the tail to be sure.

    Queen, take those pictures. You will be amazed when you dig them out in twenty years. And if he catches anything, tell him, "We'll thorow this one back today and catch him in a few years when he gets bigger." My Dad used to use that line all the time when i was a young'un.

    What's up, buttercups? Hubs and I both have a few days off work so today we're taking the boys on a picnic and to do some fishing. By fishing I mean that I will be running after Thing 2 making sure he doesn't fall off the pier and Thing 1 will lose interest after about 20 minutes and then I'll have to chase after him too. Should be a fun afternoon!

    Good morning all!
    How is everyone doing today? A fairly mild morning in Denver today. Just starting to see a little more glow in the eastern sky on my walk to the office, so summer isn't too far off.

    Coffee is on, we have fresh OJ courtesy of Brother RichHead, and I brought in some english muffins. Dig in!
