Ever met a Republican not Owned by the Insurance Industry?

Kudos to Congressmember Anthony Weiner for telling it like it us about the Republican toadies of the Insurance companies. This five minute video points out their obstructionism in the healthcare bill. Thank you, Anthony Weiner for telling it like it is and standing up for the American middle class/working folk.

No-chicken Healing Soup

No-chicken Soup

With a flu bug taking grip, despite flu shot, Val from Atlanta answered my request for vegetarian chicken soup: "Take a basic veggie stock and add cayenne pepper, basil, ginger root, lemon peel, sauteed garlic (or roasted), let it steep until all things are 'married.' Top with organic apple cider vinegar.Drink a cup of this warm broth every two hours." Had to settle for ginger powder [my ginger root looking like a voodoo head], and a little cilantro called to me. But it has truly helped. So will time.

First there was a snowy commute into Manhattan and then home again to snowy Sunnyside Gardens. Pretty to look at. Much to be shoveled. There are some other photos from the day on Flickr.
