Fat Man or Bean Pole? Seriously?

Based on these photos … Who Would You Elect for President?

Governor Christie vs Sophia Vergara

And the next President of the United States is ...

It is a known fact that politics and religion are taboo water cooler topics. Well, too bad. Digest this with your morning coffee. Who watched Fox News last night?

Ugh. Last night I was so disgusted watching Fox News go up to the average Joe/Jane on the street with a collage of three photos. One features (not my words) a “fat, less attractive” Governor Christie and the other two of his would be “thinner, more attractive” presidential opponents should New Jersey’s Governor Christie decide to enter into the political race for Mr. President.

Read the article.

They’ve even created a poll for you to go online and vote.

Seriously? Is that what we have become as a society? Let’s put in the pretty guy/girl with the 6 pack abs … who cares about their track record! Oh! Maybe that’s why we are where we are today?  Maybe we elected Barry because he was pretty and skinny (although he does smoke so maybe that’s how he stays so trim)?

Maybe Mr. Christie should be the next Weight Watchers or Jenny Craig spokesperson so that he can run for the Presidential Seat? You know, so his fat ass fits in the chair? Seriously?? Maybe that would boost his popularity because he will then be more appealing and easier on the eyes? I can’t say it enough .. Ugh.

Is the American Public that Vain? That Self Centered? That STUPID?

9/30/11 Update: the answer is NO! Based on the Fox News poll as of this morning of the 32,477 total votes, 28.472 people (87.67%) chose the response, “Who cares?! I just want a GOOD president who can fix this economy.”

Kudos! It appears it is Fox News who is stupid and lame (those ARE my words). 

I am appalled that a major news network took the time to walk around the streets with 3 photos asking people who they found more attractive and why. Ugh. Aren’t there much more important things to cover in today’s world? War? Economy? Housing Crisis? Debt Ceiling? Job Loss? No … they took their time to report on Mr. Christie’s Big and Tall Man’s body. Sad. Sad. Sad.

I miss the good old days when we elected our officials based on their history and work ethic, not by who Hollywood and their fake teeth/boobs/noses/you get the point … stands behind, nor by who has the most money or by how they fit into a pair of jeans. 

Truly Unbelievable.

FUND RAISER: Uno Chicago Grill 10/13/11

Hello,

My name is Theresa from Uno Chicago Grill.  My friends, Michelle and Ernesto were in a serious car accident.  He was lucky to not sustained any outward injuries but Michelle was not so fortunate.  She has been in the hospital since July 31st.  They were coming around a corner a and hit a pole which ejected Michelle from the car. 

 
Michelle was rushed to the hospital with two broken bones in her neck and a broken pallet.  Fortunately, her teeth were not knocked out.  Surgery was done on her neck to repair the broken bones and a wire was placed to hold her teeth in place, hopefully she will not lose them; once her pallet heals, the doctors will know better.  

We are planning a fund raiser to help Michelle with the many medical bills resulting from this accident.   She does have insurance but many things are not covered.   She is a single mom with two children, ages 13 and 6.  The fund raiser is planned for October 13th at:

 
Uno’s Chicago Grill
(215) 322-6003
801 Neshaminy Mall
Bensalem, PA 19020

A percentage of all food and alcoholic drinks sold will be donated to this cause.   There will be a variety of gift baskets that will be raffled off.   We are also looking for some Corporate Sponsors to help with the gift baskets.  Any monetary donations or gift donations are greatly appreciated.  All gift donations will be needed by September 30th and should be directed to:
 
Michelle Sanchez
6522 Keystone Street
Philadelphia, PA 19135

Fall Happenings in and around Philadelphia PA!

Pumpkin Patch It’s a beautiful time of the year here in Pennsylvania. The air is cooler, the leaves are changing colors, the scenery can be spectacular.

Try out local  Shady Brook Farm in Yardley, PA. They have great hay rides which take you out to the pumpkin patch where you can pick your pumpkins, corn mazes where you really do get lost, and THE MOST AMAZING kettle corn on the east coast! There is nothing like a hot bag of this popcorn right out of the kettle!  There are moon bounces for the kids along with pig races and pony rides and even a ride in a Monster Herse! But … BEWARE! At night, the freaks really do come out! The evening hayride is much more creepy …. so is the haunted house…. eeeeek!

Another local favorite, Styer Orchard great for picking your own apples and stop by the store for the best apple pie in town!

For those daring souls who want a little more fright in their Halloween season, check out Terror Behind the Walls in Philadelphia, PA 19130 – Eastern State Penitentiary, a real haunted prison with the most maddening, nasty ghosts in Philadelphia!

Enjoy the Fall Season in PA! And don’t forget to watch my favorite, It’s A Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown!

Boo!

Its a great pumpkin charlie brown

Fall Maintenance Tips: It’s Knocking on Our Doors! Are you ready?

Fall Maintenance Tips

Check the Heat! Have an HVAC contractor come out to inspect your heating system. Have your system cleaned so that it remains efficient. Don’t forget to change filters if you have them as suggested, once per month.

Invest in a programmable thermostat. You could save well over $100.00 annually just by keeping your temperature (in the winter) no higher than 70 degrees while awake and changing it to 62 degrees while you sleep.

Think about checking your roof before the cold weather comes and don’t forget to clean the fall leaves and debris from gutters and drains.

Caulk your doors and windows. Check window glazing putty (this seals the glass into the window frame).  Add weather stripping as needed around doors, garages, etc.

Divert water away from your home.  Add extensions to downspouts so water runs at least 3 to 4 feet away from the foundation. Drain and then turn off exterior faucets and/or turn off the shut-off valve inside your home.

Using a lawn irrigation system? Consider having it professionally drained to help avoid freezing and leaky pipes come spring.

Lastly, and most importantly …
Don’t forget to check the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors.
