    About a couple of weeks ago, in one of the political threads, Zatarain's Crispy Southern Style Seasoned Fish-Fri Mix was discussed. I wish I would have saved it because FReepers had included their favorite Zatarain fish recipes which sounded DELICIOUS. Please, could you share them with us again?
  • Barbara Boxer sees carbon tax in the mix ('Sandy' will be catalyst for O's climate change action)

    Sen. Barbara Boxer said she had a one word answer for why President Obama promised to act on climate change in his second inaugural address: “Sandy.” Boxer called Hurricane Sandy a turning point in public opinion on global warming, and said Washington will act to curb CO2 emissions not via legislation but through the Environmental Protection Agency. “My view is they have no choice but to act,” Boxer said, referring to a Supreme Court ruling that affirmed that greenhouse gasses are pollutants under the Clean Air Act. “The EPA has huge authority here.” ... “There may be a way to...

    On, Tuesday, October 30, over two thousand schools across the nation will be observing "Mix It Up" (MIT) day. MIT is a nationwide push to promote the homosexual lifestyle in public schools. A strong focus is directed specifically to elementary and junior high grades. MIT is a project of the fanatical pro-homosexual group, Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). This is the same organization that launched hateful and malicious rhetoric toward the Family Research Council just prior to the August shooting of a security guard by a SPLC sympathizer.

  • Obama’s Mix Tape for America

    Political Punch Recently the President's re-election campaign released a list of songs — a soundtrack, really — to be played during campaign events or just offered up to his supporters to download. A theme song for a political campaign is not at all a new concept -- remember FDR 's 'Happy Days are Here Again,' for instance, or the Frank Sinatra rewritten version of "High Hopes" for John F. Kennedy's campaign. But as we've seen recently, campaigns sometimes run into trouble when they incorporate music without the OK from the musician on the other side of the political aisle. Tom...

    ARLINGTON, Texas - A dog owner claims an Arlington police officer overreacted and shot his dog five times as his children watched. Buck Yandle said two police officers and an animal control officer showed up at his home on Lake Jackson Drive last week. They were there about his dog Bucky, a basset hound and Rottweiler mix. Neighbors said Bucky nipped a boy in the back after school. The dog never bit him, but it was enough to scare the 10-year-old. Yandle stepped outside to meet with the officers. He said he closed the door and left his four children...

    Warning for teens: Teeth and jewelry don't mix Skin piercings might be the rage among teens, but researchers from Tel Aviv University have found good reasons to think twice about piercing one's tongue or lip. Dr. Liran Levin, a dentist from the Department of Oral Rehabilitation, School of Dental Medicine at Tel Aviv University has found that about 15 to 20 percent of teens with oral piercings are at high risk for both tooth fractures and gum disease. Resulting tooth fractures as well as periodontal problems, he says, can lead to anterior (front) tooth loss later in life. High rates...

    WASHINGTON - Gen. David Petraeus faced lawmakers Monday with glittering stars and the weight of an unpopular war on his shoulders. Much as Gen. William Westmoreland defended another divisive conflict with a steely-jawed optimism four decades ago, the Iraq war commander sat stoicly before his questioners. The first moments weren't without a discordant note indicative of the divisiveness in the air over Iraq war policy. "Tell the truth, general," shouted protesters as the four-star general made his way into the crowded hearing room. Petraeus did not respond, either to them or to the sole heckler who interrupted the session in...

Along the way, the Illinois-based National Guard unit took time to interact with the locals, stopping in local villages around the base. The soldiers’ primary mission is to provide base security for the Marines and sailors of the forward-deployed 1st Marine Logistics Group. The 4,200 joint-service members of 1st MLG are part of the 25,000...

    Hunting season brings concerns for gun safety in the hands of persons with Alzheimer's disease. While it may seem for some that hunting and handling guns has been a lifelong skill, the complex mental skills required by the safe handling of guns are usually lost early in the process of dementia. Studies into the behavior of those with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias indicate that threatening and unsafe behavior caused by impaired judgment has been found to occur in 30 to 50 percent of persons with AD. The presence of guns could contribute to serious consequences of life threatening injury...

    FReeper dog lovers, this little male Chihuahua mix (about 15 lbs.) desperately needs either a good, loving home or a foster home until I can find him a permanent situation. On Good Friday evening, I spotted this little guy in a blind panic at a very busy intersection in the city of Gardena, CA, a Los Angeles suburb. He paused a moment, then took off running down Gardena Blvd. I made a U-turn and did everything possible to try to catch up to and get ahead of him in an effort to save him. But he kept going. He turned...

    Meet Joe Dirt Stuart K. Hayashi In 2001, comedian David Spade came out with a movie titled "The Adventures of Joe Dirt."

The contaminated home heating oil went to homes in South Burlington, Essex, Jericho and the Montpelier areas, said Moe Forcier of the state's Emergency Management office. He stressed that only Wednesday deliveries were at issue. Forcier said several home-heating fuel dealers received the oil from their bulk dealer, Ultramar in Essex Junction, which had received the contaminated mixture in a railroad car...

    Latinos, Asians, gays gain in a Legislature looking more like California By Jim WassermanASSOCIATED PRESS March 6, 2002 LOS ANGELES – Latinos, Asian-Americans and gays continued 1990s gains in state Senate and Assembly primaries, setting the stage for a Legislature that looks more like California's increasingly diverse population. Women, too, boosted chances to expand their legislative presence. Asian-Americans, approximately 11 percent of the state's population, could raise their representation from four to six members in the Nov. 5 election. Gay men and women are almost certain to hold five seats later this year. And Latinos, representing one-third of California's 35...
