  • Cookies cooked up for the troops

    SIERRA VISTA — More than 1,000 snickerdoodles and other cookies are on their way to troops in Saudi Arabia, a holiday treat inspired by a Andrea Fisher’s recent trip. When Fisher was asked to visit Saudi Arabia in October by her husband, who was stationed there with the military, she was nervous to make the journey. She never expected to travel to the Middle East, especially during a war. “My initial reaction was a simple ‘No thank you, I am not the one who signed my name on Uncle Sam’s dotted line,’ ” the Sierra Vistan wrote about the experience....

    Home-cooked pet food not always safe TORONTO, April 3 (UPI) -- The Canadian Veterinary Medical Association says pet owners need to be aware of the risks of serving home-cooked foods to their pets. Recent deaths from tainted pet food has increased the appeal of home-cooking for some pet owners, but the CVMA says people need to do some research first, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported. One of the biggest concerns is a risk of salmonella poisoning associated with raw pet food diets. While animals in the wild have always eaten and survived on raw flesh, CVMA spokesman Danny Joffe told...

    Aide says Jefferson cooked up schemeAssistant sentenced to 8 years in prison Saturday, May 27, 2006 By Bill Walsh Washington bureau ALEXANDRIA, VA. -- A former aide to U.S. Rep. William Jefferson, D-New Orleans, said Friday that it was the congressman's idea to solicit bribes to promote a telecommunications deal in West Africa that began as a legitimate business venture. "I've gone over it 10 million times in my head," Brett Pfeffer, 37, said at his sentencing in U.S. District Court. "I don't know why I didn't look him in the eye and say 'No.' " **SNIP** According to court...

    NEW ORLEANS (Dec. 10) - In the dark, dank recesses of what was once one of the great wine cellars of the world, the fabled bottles sit. The 1870 Lafite Rothschild, the Chateau Moutons, Chateau Magaux - fine wines with enormous price tags, or at least they were. The wine cellar at Brennan's Restaurant, winner since 1983 of Wine Spectator magazine's Grand Award as one of the 85 top cellars in the world, has 35,000 bottles that since Hurricane Katrina have gone from vintage to vinegar. "They may be drinkable, but they're probably better for salads," said Ted Brennan, whose...

    Pet store animals cooked in school Fri Jan 21 2005 08:35:35 ET A Guinea pig and rabbit purchased from a Geauga County pet store ended up on plates at a Cleveland area high school. A 16-year-old student skinned and cooked the animals during a living skills class on Wednesday, prompting student and parent complaints to the Thompson Township Police Department and Geauga Humane Society. Officials at both agencies said they are investigating. Friday editions of the CLEVELAND PLAIN DEALER detail how the incident may warrant animal cruelty charges. Geauga Humane Officer Sarah Westman said it's illegal to needlessly kill "companion...

    Since new CIA Director Porter Goss blocked the October Surprise agency left-wingers had prepared against Bush (discussed in “Porter At The Pass” last week), they desperately rigged another one, working with Mohammad ElBaradei at the UN. What nobody is focusing on in Al Qaqaagate is that the CIA is behind it. The anti-Bush lefties are now known as the “Rogue Weasels” at Langley, and they are frantic to do whatever they can to elect Kerry. They cooked up this entire phony “tons of missing explosives” scandal, sweet-talked the head of the UN’s nuclear inspection agency, ElBaradei, to carry their water...

    Only my third thread post,so be gentle. Did John Kerry break state and federal law during his goose hunt?All of the photos I've seen DO NOT show a "tag" attached to any goose.Ohio state,and therefor federal,law requires that all migratory game birds that you have killed,but are not in posession of,be tagged with pertinent information.John Kerry said he was "Too lazy" to carry his own bird.If that goose did not have a tag,then I submit that Kerry is violation of state and federal law.

    [QX: BOLD COLOR EMPHASES ADDED] The fascinating phenomenon of the Torah Codes has gained widespread attention since Witztum, Rips, and Rosenberg published "Equidistant Letter Sequences in the Book of Genesis" in the respected journal, 'Statistical Science'. In the past few years, much has been written about this discovery. Unfortunately, most of what has been presented to the public has been misleading, incorrect, or falsely promoting a certain agenda. This website has been established by friends and supporters of Doron Witztum's research into the hidden codes in Genesis in order to provide a forum for him to answer some of the...

    <p>"Through all of President Clinton's last two years in office, the announced level of before-tax profits was at least 10 percent too high -- a discrepancy rising close to 30 percent during the last presidential campaign. Most startling, the Commerce Department in 2000 showed the economy on an upswing through most of the election year while in fact it was declining."</p>

    Figures on corporate profits were wildly overstated by Clinton administration statisticians during 1999 and 2000, a government report issued last week reveals, begging the question of whether the feds engaged in the kind of bottom-line book-cooking that has recently seen a number of corporate executives being led away in handcuffs. "The Commerce Department's painful report last week that the national economy is worse than anticipated obscured the document's startling revelation. Hidden in the morass of statistics, there is proof that the Clinton administration grossly overestimated the strength of the economy leading up to the 2000 election," reports nationally syndicated...
