Not that my personal situation should dictate national policy, but my quick back of the napkin calculations show me that initially the Senate plan costs me about 400 more a year in taxes, while the House plan shows about an 800 savings, $67.00 a month! WooHoo! Once I figure out... Continue reading

The Frothling and Frothette helped make a chicken pot pie for dinner tonight. The Frothling cut up the vegetables, and Frothette helped stir. The girls also helped with spooning the filling into the pie pan and putting the top crust on. Everyone agreed it was delicious! Continue reading

This is callousness and attitude is exactly what I was typing about yesterday. Full quotation: In his call with Sgt. La David T. Johnson’s widow, Myeshia Johnson, Trump told her, “He knew what he was signing up for, but I guess it hurts anyway,” according to the account of Rep.... Continue reading

That's the only reason why Trump is going to call the families of the soldiers killed in Niger. I went to an exclusive private high school, and there were a few (thankfully not many) wealthy students there who essentially saw the military as "the help." The cared not a whit... Continue reading

Tim Murphy is not only a hypocrite, and by most accounts, and incredible asshole towards the people he worked for, it's starting to look like he was thoroughly corrupt as well, at least when it came to taking care of his pet staffer. Continue reading

Raging hypocrite Tim Murphy will not run for reelection. UPDATE: Murphy resigning. Last day polluting Congress is Oct. 21. Two Rethuglicans have expressed an interest in the seat, state Rep. Rick Saccone, who is a religious lunatic, and would be Pennsylvania's worst elected official, if not for the existence of... Continue reading

It worked! I cooked it down for three days, then filtered it first through cheese cloth and then four more times through coffee filters. I got roughly a pint of liquid. The house stank terribly for a week, but the sauce isn't really that fishy (but it is very salty). You're supposed to use it a drop or two at a time as a flavoring for things like beans, polenta, vegetables, etc.
