Went to the pysankyfest at the Ukrainian Catholic church yesterday. Had some authentic hunky food there. Homemade pierogies, the best kapusta, halupky etc. my family was less than enthralled with it, but i liked it. It always astounds me to see this group of old ethnics speaking their language in this city that is filled with the new immigrants and very few of the old.

The Benghazi brouhaha doesn’t bother the low-information voters, but those of us who are interested in the truth have been asking:
“Canaille get a witness?”

My paternal grandparents were born in Budapest. As I recall, “the best capusta” is an oxymoron, like “the best kimchi.”

Be flying out later this evening/tonight after the office planning meetings.

Sorry to hear about the ticket. They caught you when you weren’t on your game to talk your way out of it. The skies opened up here right when I got to the car at the end of my jog. I think I need to go buy a lottery ticket.

I’m confused. If you take your dog to the doggy dentist, does he get a root canaille?

Oh, no-is there no way out of it? $250 is enough to put the hurt on one in these bad times...

The emperor’s indifference
Ought to be squelched down-
There are hard working people
In the boonies, and in every town

Who struggle to make ends meet
While he flies around to play
And waves to all the canaille
Who gather all along the way

He gives them bread and circuses
But still they bitch and squall
While all our meager earnings
Are taxed to pay for it all...

As my compadre and I wait with no funds and held breath for a work contract-I had the metal and old heavy rock-with deafening bass-cranked all weekend till evening, but I’m my pragmatic self now...

History Channel’s Bible mini-series consulted with biblical scholars in an effort to create a product that stays true to the spirit of the text, and presents an accurate representation.

I think they nailed it in their portrayal of The Accuser, The Deceiver, The Father of Lies, Sower of Discord, and Temptor.

I caught the resemblance while watching last night, and had to laugh at what has got to be the producers’ sense of humor.

no political stickers, just prolife plates and magnets from my kids schools. i would be keyed to ribbons in that garage if i had a romney sticker. recall i was berated in the street by the belligerant lib over the Bush Cheney sticker several years back?? as it is i have been keyed and all i can figure is its the prolife plates. or a Georgetown fan : ) There is actually a car in there parked not too far from me with a HOYA02 license plate, i snapped a pic of the license plate and sent it to my family and said, well here’s a prime suspect in the keying of my car in this garage...

Patronage works in PA cause both parties share more or less equally.

What’s remarkable here is that the newly elected Atty General (Dem) is moving forward with this.

The cynic in me makes me wonder what she plans on doing to Corbett or the GOP later.
