real time blogging: pickled beets secrets and Capitol Hill

At the moment (3:22 pm edt) I’m typing in between bites of a salad I concocted to which glorious pickled beets have been added. Not sure why I began craving them recently but a salad had to be made and consumed and it had to have beets and cottage cheese involved. Plus cilantro, of course. And a drizzling of Asian Toasted Sesame Dressing. Yum.

Well, now you know my happy secret.

Another secret is that I’ve finally written an entry over at http://judecowell.blog.com

which is my ‘Art & Then Some’ blog so woefully neglected of late. Don’t know why…well, yes I do: images are published separately into ‘Albums’ (if there’s a way to post them within articles, I haven’t found it yet), and the images are only partially viewable which irks me a little. When there’s cropping to be done of my artwork I prefer to select the area myself, thanks.

But that’s just me being bossy, I suspect.

And here’s an answer to this morning’s email from a Stars Over Washington reader, T.C.:

no, I’ll not be posting today on Eric Prince’s testimony on Capitol Hill concerning his Blackwater company of mercenaries. It’s only Blackwater Theater to me, Dahling, and it’s not as if Congress hasn’t known about Bush-Cheney-Rumsfeld’s privatization of the war all along.

When it comes to Capitol Hill and Congress, my test is always this: what will be the results of “testimony”/”investigations”/”committees”/”reports”/”elections” and such?

Will anything change for the better? Even if TRUTH happens to come out, will they DO anything decent about it? Will anyone actually be held accountable in a significant way?

It’s the same test I applied to them in November 2006 when the Dems “took over”…and what has improved in a pragmatic sense since then? Not s’much. Politicians are all in the canoe together and we’re left on the shore!

And that’s no secret at all.

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
