yahoo.com, whitehouse.gov

Posted on 02/17/2005 6:55:00 PM PST by rintense

President Bush nominated John Negroponte today to be the new Director of National Intelligence. Negroponte is the former ambassador to Iraq. The First Couple also hosted Paul Rusesabagina and his wife, Tatiana. Mr. Rusesabagina sheltered refugees in a Rwandan hotel where he worked as a manager, and was the subject of the movie, 'Hotel Rwanda'. Enjoy your daily dose of Dubya!

Don't be sorry. I'm just having a little mischievous fun. In truth, it's best to get rid of trolls ASAP on a social thread like this.

Nice pictures. Did I read earlier that you learned to do this tonight?

You're a quick study!

I love the expressiveness of GWB's face. Everyday there's something new to see. There is absolutely no artifice in the man at all.

These are easy even if you're tired. Keep in mind that as a rule I don't measure. :-)

Melt a good blob of butter (about 1/4 stick) in a frying pan on med-high to high. When it's melted, add enough pork chops for your family. I prefer boneless porkchops. Let the pork chops cook till they're nicely browned (probably 7-10 minutes/side, depending on if the Dose is up and how many posts you have to read thru).

Meanwhile, dissolve 2-3 bullion cubes in a cup of water (I heat it in a 1-cup measure--less dishes to wash--in the microwave for 30 seconds so it doesn't boil over but gets hot enough to dissolve while you're posting.)

When the porkchops are browned, take them out and put them on a plate. Add the dissolved bullion, plus another cup or so of water, to the pan you were cooking the chops in. Let it boil for a few minutes till it boils down a little--long enough to 1. check if the dose is up or 2. post back to someone.

Now you have to stick around the stove for awhile.

Add about a cup of sour cream to the pan with the bullion and melted butter. Also add about 2 tablespoons of mustard, dijonaise or grainy mustard if you have it. Whisk it all together. Taste to see if you want to add more sour cream or mustard. Add a little garlic if you like garlic. When it tastes good, add the pork chops along with any juice on the plate. Turn the chops over so the sauce covers them. Simmer for 10 minutes or so to be sure the chops are cooked thru.

Serve, or cover and leave on low--it's OK to let them simmer for quite awhile; they'll just get more tender.

And that's it!

To further impress your family, make some broccoli or a veggie.

Hope you enjoy it!

I think this one is from yesterday, but I can't remember if it was in the Dose or not. I thought since it was a "long coat" type, no one would object if they've seen it already. ;)

Did you get the Reagan stamp that is out?
The post office is also selling first day of issue
envelope that is post marked Simi Valley ( I still remember
what a great time we had there) They also have a postcard
with a large picture of the stamp.

Actually, I don't know if it's just because he's a bit overweight. His face truly isn't heavily lined.

Yes, I guess you're all going to have to put up with me now. ;)) One thing I would like to know though is how to put a space between comments and the picture. Seems "enter" doesn't work for that?

Speaking in generalities, Italians do tend to be expansive, warm-hearted people. So, yeah, being half-Italian is a good thing.

Either put a P (for paragraph) or BR (for break) between the <>
B = bold
I = italics
Big
small
also work
to stop it just add a / before any of the commands.

For a space put < br > with no spaces before and after br, the more times you put it the more space, just learned this myself.

Use a p enclosed in brackets < > to create a double-spaced paragraph and br enclosed in <> to put a single space.

Caption: "Democrats like to have it both ways on every issue." Just yesterday, Mr. "I voted for it before I voted against it" Kerry had the gall to ask GWB to meet with him before leaving for Europe. Kerry wanted GWB to seek his advice on how to handle our European allies.

Cubes of dried broth you add water to. We have beef, chicken, and pork flavored. I think you were discussing it last week . . . how you can't get a certain kind because of mad cow disease.
