Some of the best college games in the whole country take place between our Florida teams. The interstate rivalry here is intense. It's not easy for me to root for FSU or Miami but I have a preference in the FSU vs. MIAMI game tonight -- may not happen but I am watching and I know this will be a great game, no matter the outcome.
Speaking of football, we have had Corn Huskers :::gasp::: move into our little town. Their cars all have huge red Nebraska Husker logos on them and as far as I know, no one has spoken to them yet.
Concerning intolerance, I read the most disturbing and infuriating religious explanatory article after Katrina collided with NOLA and have been fuming about it for days. The saddest part is that these morons really believe this shit.
READ THIS LINK if you want to get pissed off. (It's a long article but read it all if you can stomach it)
My Maker and I get along just fine but I can't help but wonder how some folks can be so small minded, such totally uneducated assholes, that they can read, support or author such total bullshit. I promised myself that I would not get into religion or politics in this blog but the above article so infuriated me that maybe others need to see what some people think is truth.
Back to football.... We had a rollicking good TailGATOR kick-off party at John and Barb's on Saturday afternoon. After the first Florida touchdown of the new season, DH presented me with a wonderful grinning GATOR ring made by bench jeweler, Paul Spivey of Calico Gator 2. Love my new GATOR ring! I can't believe W4D kept it a secret.
This week is comfort food week at my house. I just wish I could feed all the Gulf Coasters who need a good, comforting meal this week. We've sent our donations, putting our money where our mouths are - so to speak.
A good, home-cooked meal can make anyone feel better, at least for a while. Tonight, it is rainy and the first day in 54 straight days that it didn't get to or above 90 degrees here in North Central Florida. The comfort food Of The Day is Italian sausage, peppers and onion sandwiches. W4D bought poppy seed spolettes. Not my personal fave but they will do in a pinch.
Tonight, we are sort of tucked in, waiting to go back to work tomorrow. Our thoughts are with the people of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama. All Americans are wishing you a speedy return to a life of normalcy. We grieve with you for your losses and we will help you regain your lives.
