It’s been decided. On October 20th, 2010, we will wear purple in honor of the 6 gay boys who committed suicide in recent weeks/months due to homophobic abuse in their homes at at their schools. Purple represents Spirit on the LGBTQ flag and that’s exactly what we’d like all of you to have with you: spirit. Please know that times will get better and that you will meet people who will love you and respect you for who you are, no matter your sexuality. Please wear purple on October 20th. Tell your friends, family, co-workers, neighbors and schools.
RIP Tyler Clementi, Seth Walsh (top) RIP Justin Aaberg, Raymond Chase (middle) RIP Asher Brown and Billy Lucas. (bottom)
REBLOG to spread a message of love, unity and peace.
Just made this last night, and am looking forward to leftovers (or a fresh batch!) tonight!
For one or two folks.
Take a cup of Kitchen Basics Chicken broth
Add 1/2 cup of Costco roasted Chicken breasts (tear up larger chucks to bit sized)
1 tsp of butter (optional)
Heat to simmer, and then spoon out the chicken bits and put them aside momentarily.
Add 1/4 cup of potato flour to the heated broth and stir well. Once all the flour is in solution, add back the chicken.
Heat to boil and add some veggies to taste (we used baby peas, but whatever floats your boat).
Serve over rice or Gluten Free pasta.
The broth is pretty high in salt and other flavors, so try it without any added salt or pepper before you over season it. If you find it too strong a flavor, try cutting back on the broth to 3/4 cup and adding 1/2 cup of milk. (something we're going to try next time around!)
(I didn't pull the chicken out last night and it was ok, but stirring in the flour is a bit of a pain, when you get it mostly done, you can't tell the difference between the chicken bits and the flour lumps :)
This is Miss Kitty, I got her ages ago, she's about 20 now (Really). She's been slowing down, and even slowly fading. So much so that she's not able to get around and use the litter box. So I set up a good sized crate for her (large dog crate really) and turned the liner into a giant litter pan. She's been happy with that for a while, but this past weekend she couldn't get out of it on her own (I bring her out daily, put her on a house breaking pad with food and water so she's not cooped up 100% of the time).
Well today, I opened the crate door and she fell out of the crate. It would be funny if it wasn't so sad. She's still in good spirits, and happy to see me (and eager to be fed) but I've made the final vet appointment for next Wednesday.
Gonna miss her, she's been a good kitty.
and Yes, her name is Kitty Karlyle.

Well the time for bickering is over. The time for games has passed. Now is the season for action. Now is when we must bring the best ideas of both parties together, and show the American people that we can still do what we were sent here to do. Now is the time to deliver on health care
Some of people's concerns have grown out of bogus claims spread by those whose only agenda is to kill reform at any cost. The best example is the claim, made not just by radio and cable talk show hosts, but prominent politicians, that we plan to set up panels of bureaucrats with the power to kill off senior citizens. Such a charge would be laughable if it weren't so cynical and irresponsible. It is a lie, plain and simple.
But that's not what the moment calls for. That's not what we came here to do. We did not come to fear the future. We came here to shape it. I still believe we can act even when it's hard. I still believe we can replace acrimony with civility, and gridlock with progress. I still believe we can do great things, and that here and now we will meet history's test.
