    • gcblues

      true dat. i remember $3.00 a minute.

      • Cecelia

        I just noticed that you’ve got a Wookie’s head on a platter for an avatar.

        • gcblues

          smoked chicken breast.

          • Cecelia

            You sure?

          • gcblues

            yes, smoked chicken breast, now gone.

          • Cecelia

            To a galaxy far far away.

          • gcblues

            allow me to make your evening.

            close to my favorite food in Mexico, after al pastor, frappes, asada,
            caldos, raspados, y mujercitas is CREPES! in Jalisco they sell them
            wrapped in wax paper with chocolate, or caramel, or butter and cinnamon,
            mmmmm. but they are also wonderful for breakfast or even a dinner.

            a mexican crepe is made with flour integral (whole wheat).
            you can steam spinach and strain and keep in the fridge for many days.
            so this is like sooooo easy. tomaza is making herself one right now and those that know her know she cooks campo only.
            Wisconsin makes great pepper jack cheeses i buy in Price smart.
            you eat them with salsa and crema acida, real sour cream. a few Jalapeños.

            so make a crepe batter.
            use a big fry pan.
            cook
            one side flip. layer in spinach and cheese. shrooms eggs, a ton of
            other stuff but i am telling you spinach and cheese is simply wow.
            fold over as seen, cook both sides, nothing black!! eat. i promise you will make this more than once.

            1.5 cups or 220 g sifted all purpose flour
            1 cup or 250 ml whole milk
            1 cup or 250 ml water
            2 large eggs
            1 tsp sugar
            unsalted butter for pan

            i use no salt. no one misses it anymore because i cook with other strong flavors. right kids?

            let me know how they turn out.
            where should i send you fotos?

          • Cecelia

            I love crepes and make them frequently, both sweet and savory.

            I like them delicate, with delicate fillings.

          • gcblues

            i too like them with fruits, coco ice cream on the side, reduced syrups etc. but the Mexican style breakfast crepes are heavier and filling. use a good pepper cheese and spinach with cream and good salsa and let me know if i am crazy,.

          • gcblues

            i would post a pic. side view with spinach, melted cheese crema y salsa ….. you would head for the kitchen. for some reason they really are good. i have two kids that hate anything green that like them. go figure.

            when i make breakfast burritos they invite kids in from the street …seriously …lol

          • Cecelia

            I will definitely give them a try and post a pic on twitter.

          • gcblues

            who are you on twits? i have an acct i never use but i can try. or send to me and i can try to reply. is attaching obvious? bluesgc

          • gcblues

            ok, i have it loaded. i do not send it to a specific person … i just launch it?

          • gcblues

            curious about this twit stuff. let me know if u have it.

            I am one of the few people around with low blood sodium. I’ve craved salt since I was a kid.

          • gcblues

            mostly by not adding it to anything i find i do not like it and i use more of every other spice. i sent a tweet out as bluesgc with the foto. interested in anyone has seen it. i am a tweet twit.

          • Cecelia

            I looks delicious, GC. I ‘ll try it and post you s pic.

          • gcblues

            it is even better than it looks. use whole wheat if you can it is a serious meal.

          • Cecelia

            I’m reluctant about the whole wheat, but I’ll follow your recipe.

          • gcblues

            if you make it both ways you can choose for the future. basically it is a slightly thicker texture.

          • gcblues

            and ………..

          • Cecelia

            It’s going to be in a few days. I have sewing projects to finish and swumming to do, Bro.

          • gcblues

            bro? everyone that has ever used that on me robbed me. omg

          • Cecelia

            I’ll get around to that too.

          • Larry Kelly

            I’ve had Wookie. Tastes like chicken, but sweeter. Sometimes they don’t pluck the fur all that well though.

          • Cecelia

            I’ve gotten honey barbecued wings like that.

        • gcblues

          but, i am to please

        • Grandpa D

          BAM!! I’ve kept expecting a reply here from Emeril Lagasse.

          • gcblues

            who?

  • Larry Kelly

    If MSNBC had any class, Wagner would be fired.

  • gcblues

    “Trust me…you don’t just suddenly forget you’re broadcasting to millions (Or in Wagner’s case, thousands).” …. or in your case 10 including relatives …. shameless, i know.

  • Mr Concha’s Mediaite article has been given the usual hundreds of Mediaite comments, and this comment devolved into lunacy more quickly than most. That’s because a familiar face showed up to explain to Mr Concha how TV really works and why Joe has it all wrong, based on this commenter’s years of experience as…a contributor to blog comment threads! (Not these any more, or the ones at ICN, as he has been banned–at his own request, according to him.) Mr Concha teaches a master class in how to flick away obnoxious know-it-alls speaking out of their rears so read and enjoy.

    • Cecelia

      “Mr Concha teaches a master class in how to flick away obnoxious know-it-alls speaking out of their rears so read and enjoy.”
      This is the only thing that makes that comment board worth reading.
      I admit that I wasn’t too fond of Concha at first, but he’s the right stuff. Smart…scrappy…honest.

      • gcblues

        he flicks me on a regular basis. means nothing.

        • Larry Kelly

          that sounded either like sour grapes

          • Larry Kelly

            Or a man with a tough skin.

          • gcblues

            neither. i hurt when people that tell me the truth about something i have done wrong. never had that happen here or from conch.

    • Larry Kelly

      Hard to beat commenting on a blog for life experience. I think we should get credit hours.

      • Cecelia

        Or banned.

        • gcblues

          it is the battle of the retireds vs the millennials.

        • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

          I would settle for a case of Diet Moxie.

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      He’s probably been banned from a lot of places……At his request, of course.

    Re: “Concha: MSNBC needs a dose of…Cenk”

    Remember when Shep Smith lost his 7 p.m. show on Fox News and was given the managing editor of “breaking news” job to soften the blow as a consolation prize.

    I’m sure others see the parallels to Brian Williams being given the “breaking news” role reporting for MSNBC for much the same reason — i.e., to soften the blow of losing the anchor chair.

    But here’s the kicker IMO. As it turned out (and some of us predicted) Shep Smith is used somewhat sparingly in this capacity. After all, how many truly “breaking news” stories are there, despite CNN’s constant display of this mantra in their chyron (lower third).

    My prediction is that initially BriWi may be used somewhat frequently — perhaps several times per week. But as time goes by his appearances will decrease as Shep’s seemingly have and finally he will fade off into the sunset just like Ann Curry has.

    I hope they do bring back that sand monkey from The Yung Turds”. Put him in the 8:00 or 9:00 PM slot. Lets see how many of his internet followers he can drag over.

    • Joe Concha

      Drops mic. Removes helmet.

      • It was a landslide, nearly 2-1 over the 2nd place finisher.

        • gcblues

          so what? raw numbers please. 6 to 3? 500 to 250? transparencia demands it.

  • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

    Cenk? Are you kidding me. And, bu the way, look up who the original “Young Turks” were. I’ll help you: http://www.armenian-genocide.org/young_turks.html And this just scratches the surface of those genocidal b@stards. Who in God’s name would name their show after them.

    • Larry Kelly

      The fact that Cenk is a denier of the Armenian genocide means his truth to power BS depends on which power his loyalty shields.

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        I guess to him the Armenians. and other victims of the original Young Turks, were simply Untermenschen. If die Türkei had only been more advanced, just think of how their version of the Final Solution would’ve ended

        • Larry Kelly

          Their gambit of pushing everyone out in the desert to die was quit effective. The first modern genocide. Obama campaigned to the Armenian community that if he were elected President, he would call it as such. To avoid offending Turkey, he broke his promise. The new Pope, who calls ‘me as he see ’em, stepped up to the plate and used the ‘G word’ in the 100 year commemoration last year.
