Today’s Meal-Replacement Shake

I sent the below note to my brother because I had planned to drink my meal-replacement shake for lunch today. However, some no-account handlers did not show up for an appointment at noon. So, I got mad at the world and bought a fish sandwich. I must say that it was actually one of the best catfish po’boy sandwiches that I ever had. The food is always outstanding at the particular establishment that I went to.

I wish I had one of these like what is in the picture below to “do” my meals for me now-a-days. Where do I order one of these?

I had one like this when I was young. Now-a-days I “do” meal-replacement shakes.

To my daughter: Dear Dominique!! I just left your sister’s house where your mom and I had a nice, long conversation about you, your birthday and other related-type stuff. Hahaha… I will be the bearer of all of that information to you timely because you know that they say I am like a doggone tape recorder🙂. She says that she hopes that you enjoyed your doggone, nice-looking, delicious-ass CHOCOLATE cake🙂🙂 …and, similar-type conversation.

Dominique (right)

That chocolate, birthday cake looks delicious, and I want a piece.

Happy Birthday!!

UPDATE: I fell apart yesterday evening and instead of doing my meal replacement shake, I totally lost my mind and gobbled up some seafood and peach brandy.

On second thought, speaking of losing my mind and gobbling stuff up, I happened to run across this oldie but goodie picture. With the 2016 Olympics having kicked off last night I remember a few words that I wrote during the last Olympics.

Here is a picture which I plan to make a hard copy of.

Tom Brady Out for DeflateGate

Finally some justice and equality are duly being meted out peripherally relating (in my heart and soul) to the whole 1-year suspension that the New Orleans Saints served for BountyGate. Tom Brady will finally serve his 4-game suspension for DeflateGate. About time!! He will miss the first 4 regular-season games in 2016. JUSTICE!!

I believe that Bush-Cheney-Rumsfeld put us in this Middle East, Islamic quagmire in 2003 by invading Iraq in an unjust war and killing more than a million innocent people immorally. Now, it is unfair to blame this mess on President Barack Obama because Obama ran in 2008 on a platform promising to bring our troops out of Iraq. He inherited the mess, and went right out and surgically took Osama Bin Laden out without killing millions of innocent people.

Speaking of Apocalypses, I went to see the opening of Ghostbusters on Friday morning in New Orleans. I plan to write my review of the movie at some point this weekend. I will post it then.

Fox News Wants Holocaust

Awww, man!! More people should confront Fox News like actor D. L. Hughley did last night. FOX NEWS is an illegal, holocaust-driven institution just like the NAZI’s were in 1930’s Germany. When will the real America wake up and shut that Hitler-like network down?

I was actually watching Megyn Kelly’s show last night when D.L. Hughley would ‪#‎NOT‬ allow Fox News’ Kelly to loud talk and push him around with Foxnews’ typical hate and bigotry. Hughley went toe-to-toe with her even when she tried to shut him up (typical ‪#‎FOX‬ tactic) and blatantly insult him. Geaux ‪#‎TeamDL‬. I later watched Bill O’Reilly talk some incredible hate and bigotry on the Seth Meyers’ show where Seth could not handle ‪#‎OReilly‬. FOX should be outlawed for stirring up all this hate and murder from the bigots and haters in America. ‪#‎FoxNews‬ is just like Adolf Hitler and the NAZI’s having a network in America and stirring up the ‪#‎Holocaust‬ here.

Fox News and Megan Kelly do NOT want to mess with the real America.

Fine, sexy-legged Gretchen Carlson of Fox News has lost her contract with Fox. Where will that pretty cutie-pie work now? I will miss her on her afternoon show. Gretchen’s contract was not renewed with Fox because she filed sexual harassment charges against her Fox boss, Roger Ailes.

The beautiful Gretchen Carlson of Fox News.

I am not sure that the story at the link below is true. How in the world can the Republican Convention be opening next week, and the delegates that each candidate won not be bound to that candidate on the first ballot? What is the article at the link below talking about? Whatever delegates that Donald Trump won in the primaries must be bound to Donald at least on the first ballot.

Back to Gretchen. Another Fox News anchor, Kimberly Guilfoyle, defends their FOX boss, Roger Ailes.

I would enjoy debating Sarah Palin about her politics while in the middle of us smooching and hugging. I think that Sarah is sexy. Plus, it makes romance better when you debate with a sweetie in the middle of making love. I understand how Sarah won her home town beauty pageant, and came out 3rd in the Miss Alaska Pageant.

Thoughts about Sarah Palin have me all shook up this afternoon. In my opinion, she gets cuter every day. I see now how she came out third as Miss Alaska. Plus, she outright won the Miss Wasilla beauty pageant.

Sarah looks very cute.

I Wuv Hillary Clinton

Geaux, Girl! You need to do it for the sake of history. I luv, wuv and love Hillary Clinton. She will make a great president. All of you chauvinist pigs (including that wildebeest Donald Trump) need to leave her the hell alone. POTUS!!

Oh, and By the Way, Bill Clinton will make an excellent 1st Lady.

This is what I was thinking on Saturday; but I thought wrong. My horse did not do well, to put it mildly:

The evening news, not too long after I enjoyed the Belmont Stakes, bore such terrible news that there is now a pallor hanging over the country. Will the world ever see an end to the horrible wars and killings?

Where did my horse finish? That dumb son of a gun ran 11th.:

My Kentucky Derby Bet

Are y’all wondering how I made out over the weekend with my Kentucky Derby wagers. Well, I will put it like this, I AM ONE HAPPY MOTOR SCOOTER. Ummmm… I am about to go off, lie down in my bed and start throwing some of my money up in the air.

Yes!! You can see here in the below photograph (however, on another occasion) that I am one happy dude. I need to toast today May 7th. The number “7” is a blessed number. That is one of my lucky numbers. Number 13 is another one of my lucky numbers. Today’s Kentucky Derby winner, Nyguist, was #13 in the race. I almost knew that I was going to win. Those are two of my daughters with me in the picture.

shut up

Why is my mouth always moving?

Look at the surprise notification that I received last night from Twitter:

Stirred Not Shaken Controversy

#JamesBond’s famous tag line is actually a reversal of the original quote from Fleming’s books. The author used the line “stirred not shaken” to add yet another facet to Bond’s cool image. If a Martini is shaken, the alcohol becomes “bruised” which detracts from the desired flavour – something which agent 007 would of course immediately notice and be suitably repulsed by. It was decided that the line “shaken not stirred” sounded much better, however, and so was adopted for the film – thus creating a character with a good collection of sound bytes, but a slightly odd taste in drinks.

Above Research and Study by Bob French, Clifton, York.

Holy Hell! I Do NOT want to suffer impotence. What would I then live for? Romance is THE potion that makes my world go round. Without that: WOE IS ME!!

Make Your Own Olive Brine

Since olive juice is my favorite flavor in a martini, I plan to follow the below article by Colleen Graham (Cocktails Expert) about making my own olive juice or brine (as “they” call it). In fact, I planted an olive seed in my backyard in case, by some miracle, I might grow it into a tree. Read the article if you are interested:

If your local market has an olive bar filled with gourmet olives, use them to make your own olive brine. It is very easy and you can use your own selection of olives, even adding a variety to a single jar.

The best part of this is that you can control the juice, making it exactly the way you want. It can save the die-hard Dirty Martini drinker a considerable amount of money. You also get a custom choice of olives for garnishing all of your Martinis!

2 cups green olives
2 cups water
1/2 cup dry vermouth
2 Tablespoons vinegar
2 Tablespoons salt
Method:

Place the olives in a glass jar with a tight-sealing lid (recycle an old olive jar!).
Gently press the olives with the back of a wooden spoon firmly enough to release their juice.
In a separate bowl, combine the other ingredients and mix well.
Pour the liquid over the olives until they are completely covered. Leave a little room for air at the top of the jar.
Seal the jar and shake it vigorously.
Refrigerate for at least one day (longer is better) and shake before using the juice.
If your juice gets a little low for the olives left in the jar, add more vermouth and give the mix a good shake.

Of course, if you are lucky enough to have your own olive tree, nothing beats fresh olives. In order to make them edible, curing is required. Use these tips for brining fresh olives.

Is there a crack in the freeze of the Republicans in Congress to ignore President Barak Obama’s Supreme Court nomination? Probably not a huge movement, but my opinion is that the Republicans need to do their job and seat a new justice on the Supreme Court.
