Pearl Harbor Day, the Red Dress & Onions
Pearl Harbor Day. Again. In our family, we have a tradition of watching Tora, Tora, Tora every December 7th. I wish our nation was as united today against the terrorist barbarians who want to destroy our way of life and kill us, as it was this day in 1941. Powerline and Victor Davis Hanson have some thought-provoking commentary on the subject.
Well, phooey! Of the variety of raw veggies at Taco Bell, you might know that my decades-long stand-by, a mild bean burrito with extra onions, would involve the one e-coli tainted vegetable found at Taco Bell. Drat, drat and double drat!
Although it is not unheard of, a tornado touching down in London is very, very rare. For those of us who routinely live under the threat of big and bad tornadoes, this one sounded more like a dust devil, but it did do some damage. Of course, you've gotta remember that the building in the picture was most likely pretty old.
Oh my gosh! The horror!! Three women attended a White House party wearing the identical $8,500 dress that the First Lady was wearing. OK. Setting aside the most obvious question involving why the hell anyone would pay $8,500 for a dress, and the whole part about how much money the designer made on that particular design at that particular party, well....moving on. I'm just thinking, that if those women had shopped at Foley's, Macy's, Second Hand Rose, or Goodwill, each outfit would likely have been an original design at that party, and at a fraction of the cost of the apparently mass-produced designer dress. It would be a cold day in hell before I would spend even $300 for a dress, much less $8,500!!! Of course, this is coming from someone who got married wearing a sweater, jeans and cowboy boots, so perhaps I am not the ideal fashion commentator. In all fairness, the dress all 4 women wore was spectacular, but then again........ it certainly should have been at that price!!!
