I am 50 this year. I ache. Some days more than others. I have been exploring just how to remedy this without pain meds, like ibuprofen and tylenol. So here is what I have been trying with some success so far:

I don’t know for sure where these recipes originated, but as far as I know they were handed down by Norwegian immigrants who settled in the Red River valley of North Dakota. Actually, I’m pretty confident of that, because that’s pretty much all who live there, and that’s where I got them.

Uff-da.

At any rate, this is exactly what is written on the recipe cards.

Windex

7 cups water
1 cup rubbing alcohol
1 tablespoon Prell (shampoo)

BALTIMORE (AP) — Federal authorities have opened a criminal investigation of Delaware Republican Christine O’Donnell to determine if the former Senate candidate broke the law by using campaign money to pay personal expenses, according to a person with knowledge of the investigation.

Yeah, the subject line was intentional. And yeah, I think she’s guilty as hell.

Disgraced Iraq-Enabling Reporter Judith Miller Winds Up At Newsmax

Judith Miller was once an important war reporter person at The New York Times, but then she was sent to jail. But not for writing up fake stories about weapons of mass destruction that helped the Bush administration wage an illegal war! No, it was because she protected Scooter Libby’s telling her the name of Valerie Plame, another person from that decade. Anyway, Miller has finally found an actual journalism job, and it’s with Newsmax, which is rather hilarious, because that’s not really quite journalism, especially for a former Times reporter.

If she marries Jerome Corsi in a ceremony performed by Orly Taitz, it’s all complete.

It sounds like parts of NYC are a disaster area.

I wonder how Icy’s doing? We only got an inch or two, here. I didn’t even shovel. Most of it’s already melted.

I live near Philly and listen to WMMR when I’m in the car. This time of year they play a song called “Christmas on the Block” by Alan Mann. He was a local artist who died in an apartment fire. Rumor was, he was the next artist “scheduled” to “go big” after the Hooters.

Anyhoo, click on over to hear the story and hear the song, plus a few others I like to hear on the radio this time of year.

FBI assembling a database on Americans, according to report

5 revelations from the Post’s ‘Monitoring America’ investigation

By Liz Goodwin liz Goodwin Mon Dec 20, 10:05 am ET

The FBI is assembling a massive database on thousands of Americans, many of whom have not been accused of any crime, the Washington Post’s Dana Priest and William Arkin report. The reporters’ latest look at the country’s ballooning national security system focuses on the role that local agencies — often staffed by people with little to no counter-terrorism training — have played in combating terrorism since 2001.
