Humor is the Cure, Gravy

Humor is the Cure, Gravy

By Gerri Hunter Gravy.  Just typing the word is probably enough to finish this article.  Humans swoon when they see or hear this word.  This word makes even snooty people groan with pleasure. When you purchase a nice set of china at a department store, it comes with a sugar bowl, creamer and a gravy boat.  I have always felt cheated when I look at a gravy boat.  It’s too small.  The word boat suggests a piece of china that can hold lots of ...

Humor is the Cure: Making Taffy

Humor is the Cure: Making Taffy

By Gerri Hunter I tried making taffy recently and it was a gross experience. You must cover your hands in butter and more butter. Then, after the candy has reached the same temperature as molten lava, you are to pick it up in your buttered hands and start pulling the candy.

Pet food manufacturers have caught on and now help us feel guilty about the way our pets eat and play. We humans are now referred to as “pet parents” in national commercials on television. Gee, nothing like using a loaded word like “parent” to reel guilt-ridden humans into the offices of psychologists for therapy. When did this change take ... Full Story

Trump does Wall Street’s bidding

Trump does Wall Street’s bidding

betraying campaign promises By Steve Benen More so than any modern Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump positioned himself as an opponent of Wall Street. In fact, as regular readers know, the GOP candidate spent months insisting that it was Hillary Clinton, not himself, who’d do the financial industry’s bidding. Clinton, Trump said, is “nothing more than a Wall Street puppet.” Her campaign is “paid for by her bosses on Wall Street,” he added. The public ... Full Story

5 Big Trump Lies

5 Things Donald Trump Attacked Hillary Clinton Over—But Is Currently Doing Himself By Michelle Ruiz The Trump presidency thus far has been a bona fide progressive nightmare, but at the very least, the new commander in chief has been widely credited with delivering on his campaign promises—seemingly, all of his campaign promises. Among them: ordering the much-hyped wall on the Mexican border (thus alienating a longstanding U.S. ally), enacting a sweeping travel ban on Muslim-majority ... Full Story
