This Is The Day The Lord Made
As was yesterday. As tomorrow will be.
Enjoy it. Have a beer. On me. As long as you drink with me and not against me.

God made the grains, and the waters, and the tiny, tiny yeasties. He wanted us to have beer. Because He loves us and wants us to be happy. Talk about a blessing! And I'd like to point out in grateful anticipation that He set the world in motion that brings us massive breasted turkeys, (watch it! I know what you're thinking!), pumpkins that are made into pies, apples that are made into pies, cranberries, sage for sausage. Oh, just so many, many wonderful things. Here's something that I saw online that I think I have to add to the mix:
Cranberry Truffles

Heat 1/2 cup simple syrup and 1/2 cup bourbon or water; add 2 cups dried cranberries and steep until soft, 10 to 15 minutes. Drain, reserving the liquid. Pulse the fruit in a food processor, adding just enough liquid so the mixture comes together. Roll spoonfuls of the cranberry filling into balls, then roll them in cocoa, mixed with pulverized nuts if you like.

Pulverized nuts? Isn't that what Jesse Jackson had in mind for Dear Leader? Oh yeah, Jackson wanted to cut them off first. He's a cook who plans his meal preparation carefully...

Pulverized Obama nuts has become a new ingredient in Chinese cuisine....

Jesse volunteered to cut Obama's nuts off, but Obama decided he'd rather do it himself. Somehow, I don't think his denigration (oops... sorry) of America will have the same sonorous ring when he's singing it soprano.

He will leave office like the eunuchs left the Forbidden City, with their testicles in a jar. If he's lucky.

Michelle sez she beat all y'all to it a LOOOONG time ago. Dude acts like he hasn't had any nuts for years and years. Heck, his momma prolly did away with the troublesome appendages herself. Could explain a lot.

Gradual has a point. Poor Jesse, no wonder he's frustrated...
