Ah yes, Cory Booker.  Bestest buds with Michelle Rhee who supported Michigan's Guns In Schools law longer than Snyder.  Who gave $500K to lobby AGAINST collective bargaining.  Who's also against testing Charter Schools by the same achievement standards Public Schools are expected to meet DESPITE the fact that they get to reject students with the worst learning disablilities because Charter Schools underperform.  And let's not forget my favorite- cheated on the D.C. standardized testing like a Stratfield School Principal to make herself look good.

Forgive me if I'm just as happy Cory Booker has decided against a race with Christie.

12/12 - Mandy Patinkin, Michael Stipe

Mandy "You killed my father.  Prepare to die." Patinkin's performance was good enough that TheMomCat selected it as her Rant of the Week.  Also, he sings with Stephen and Michael "Elf on a Shelf" Stipe.

I'll be finishing my TEOTWAWKI (pronounced te-ot-wa-ki) Menu tonight and tomorrow.  Assuming we're still online Saturday we'll be posting some holiday treats.

As we prepare for the longest night, we decorate our homes with red, green and white, holly, ivy, evergreen and pine cones. We honor the solar year with light. We place candles in the windows facing the North, South, East and West to ward off the darkness and celebrate the return of the sun. With the setting sun, fires are lit in hearths and fire pits and kept burning to keep us warm until Sol returns at dawn.

There is food a plenty, roasts and stews and winter vegetables and sweets, chocolate and peppermint candy, apples and oranges and sweet breads. All these reminding us of the last harvest, the gifts of Gaia, Mother Earth and the hunts by Hern of the Wild Hunt. Of course there will be honeyed and spiced wine and hearty, dark beers, some made by friends who will join the festivities.

What ever your beliefs, or none, may the traditions and celebrations bring you peace and joy. Blessed Be. The Wheel Turns.


I'll be back again ek'smas eve (Monday).  If you need to reach me, you know where to find me.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
