27 degs, 16 with wind chill, we got a dusting, no delays today. Heading to wegmans. I have a happy hour with st James moms this afternoon I have to make something for, and a Super Bowl party on Sunday to bring something to. Tonight the caps (who suck, on stilts, and my condolences to Mik, bc jus is the only team we beat thus far) play the flyers (who suck only a smidge less). Xsteen and her boyfriend the flyers fan are going.

Brr. I have a superbowl party, too. On duty for 24 hours tonight to Sat night. Not positive what I will take to the party. I have been perfecting that Cheese/Onion dip. I made it and didn’t like how it turned out...cut the mayo in half and the onion powder and I like it lots better. I am thinking I will take that.

Or, maybe I will take bread dip. Wegman’s sells it, but I like mine better.

I’m hosting the kith in my neighborhood next week at a friends house in support of my Alderman’s run for Mayor. I didn’t know I had so many kith until I purused the voter list!

Good deal and VERY good friend. Her house is larger and just built for larger parties. They are new to the house, so this will be the inauguration for a large affair. Lots of details to worry about.

51 and sunny now, heading to 68 today in Texas. Maybe we’ll get this unit running today and I can go home, but I doubt it.

A little local excitement around here. If we can't have The Packers in the Super Bowl, at least we have the father of the Harbaugh brothers living in my town. The parents are trying to keep out of it, I suppose to keep the peace at the next Thanksgiving table!

I saw the Harbough parents on tv and they were very nice about it all - saying it was a win/win for them but they would probably lean toward the loser to console him.

I guess being the parents gives a whole new perspective but I hope they also cheer the winner too - their sons are big boys in the game of their lives and the winner deserves cheering.

The party will be here Sunday - I've already got baby back ribs planned but not sure yet what else...considering making up my own version of buffalo chicken salad.

I decided on San Fransisco as my son and daughter are fans...though my son’s first team is his Buffalo Bills. They try to get to some games each season.

But for the parents...who loses when your sons will be 1st and 2nd in the nation? Yeah, walking out the stadium door will be a disappointment if you lose, but in the overall scheme of things this is awesome to just be there. And your own brother wins if you lose. It should be a huge celebration for all of them either way.

I would have agreed last week, but it appears that the ice that he skates upon may be thinning.

It is 67 and partly cloudy here are into a pattern of nice days and cold nights-pretty typical for late winter...

To say that most of Obama’s kith
Are not mobsters and mafia thugs
Would be to say the main export
Of Mexico isn’t really drugs

However many people get thrown
Under his bus, or out the door
His minions still dispose of
Any fool not useful any more

The political body count rises
As the ranks are getting thinner-
Soon he who manages to survive
Will be by default, a winner...

Mafia? I picture them as gangsta hoods. Mafia sounds too main stream. A+++ Wind was blowing my car all over the road today. Lucky I didn’t get blown away into the swollen river...which is still high from the recent flood warnings.

Bottom line: does the fat toady in NJ get to pick the next Senator if he resigns? the perv is from Jersey, isn’t he? If so, it will never happen.

I heard on Rush today that Jersey’s fat toady was praising thewon again for the Sandy bill....yet they still have NO financial help to the folks. I tell ya, the fat toady is gone next election...gone as gov and out of presidential contention as a loser.

Thank you! I always think “mafia” when I think of Chicago-but he doesn’t really have enough class for the mafia, unless they’ve lowered their standards for employment like their pet unions have...
