Cheers to Blue Monday, ´the
most depressing day of the year´

Agence France-Presse, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 1/20/2013 10:21:42 PM

As if any Monday in January weren´t bad enough, Blue Monday, an ill-reputed date dubbed "the most depressing day of the year," should really put you in a mood. While there has been some confusion over exactly which day Blue Monday falls on in 2013, the official date is January 21. The theory of Blue Monday dates back to 2005, when UK psychologist Cliff Arnall created an elaborate mathematical formula to calculate the most miserable day of the year. Thanks to the day´s perfect storm of drab weather, holiday bills, and wrecked New Year´s resolutions, motivational levels

Comments:
Obama on TV all day. No wonder this Monday will be so depressing.

It´s go out, ride your bike, play some golf and stay as far away from any TV station that isn´t sports and/or cooking.

And before that bike ride, #2, be sure to raise Old Glory - upside down.

Midsomer Murders on Netflix is another good possibility. Or if you haven´t seen it the Ian Richardson BBC version of House of Cards.

Our flag has been at half-mast since the early morning hours of 11/7/2012. Hubby has no plans to change it.

Looks like we will check to see if there is an NCIS marathon on USA channel 242. We have plenty of dvd;s we can watch or catch up on the few TV programs we tape and watch later. Like "Justified".

Grandsons are out of school today (MLK day) so we will be going to Laser-Blaze and out to lunch and maybe to a movie with a bunch of car crashes...anything to get out and not be around a TV with the happy-happy-joy-joy MSM chirping about their Messiah who is come to save the world.

´´If you carry the weight of the world
upon your shoulders,
I know, my brother,
that He will carry you.´´

´´God of our life,
there are days when the burdens we carry
chafe our shoulders and weigh us down;
when the road seems dreary and endless,
the skies grey and threatening;
when our lives have no music in them,
and our hearts are lonely,
and our souls have lost their courage.

Flood the path with light,
run our eyes to where the skies are full of promise;
tune our hearts to brave music;
give us the sense of comradeship with heroes and saints of every age;
and so quicken our spirits
that we may be able to encourage
the souls of all who journey with us on the road of life,
to Your honor and glory.´´
--Augustine

Blue Monday or Bizarre Monday? Bizarre Biden Monday, to be specific. Yes, Trial Balloon #1 is being floated already by those geniuses who would place Joe Biden’s name on the list of POTUS candidates four years from now. I can conceive of Malaprop Joey placing his own name on that list. But, others? Really? It must be for laughs when the guy of giggles and gaffes is officially or even unofficially named the chosen one. Surely he can’t be serious. And don’t call him Shirley!

Wifey likes morning news at WRAL TV in Raleigh NC. She comes upstairs to prepare for work, I go downstairs to get my news and enjoy retirement. First 5 minutes all MLk day....off goes the tv. Turned it on 10 minutes later....more mlk day. Off goes the tv...10 minutes later on goes the tv....the messiahs´s crowning. Off goes the tv... Wife is at work now, and the tv is OFF!
This morn, not one word from WRAL about the gun rallies.... only shootings, mlk day and and O.
And now on one of my favorite sites I am called a racist because I don´t believe in MLK day or Obama.

It is a sad day indeed. We should be watching a very elegant and inspiring inauguration today of Mitt and his lovely wife. I don´t intend to watch any of this. If I could, I would fly my flag at half mast also. I guess I should be encouraged that my neighbor still has his empty chair sitting in the front lawn. Im not alone.

No tv, none, won´t pay for it. Instead I´ll go for a walk on this bright, sun-shiny day (in VA) and then work on my schoolwork. I´m going to better myself today. And then hopefully enjoy of phone call from my hubby who´s deployed.

Yesterday I didn´t plug in to anything all day because I was anticipating the doom-and-gloom I´d feel today. Having long ago cancelled our reservations to go to Romney´s inauguration and stay in D.C. for the Right-to-Life march, I could not bear to see the smugster-in-chief´s face or hear his voice on the news.

Then, last night, we decided to watch a local Houston pastor, Kerry Shook, interviewing Nick Vujicic, an Australian pastor born without arms or legs.

Look this guy up. What an uplifting, inspirational man he is. . . . says he keeps a pair of shoes in his closet because he believes in miracles.

This is still the best day of your life. Like Clover says, yesterday is done - and tomorrow hinges on what you make of today. For sure, Obama is a bur under our saddle for now, but this is still our country, and the flag is still our flag, and I will fly it high . . . at full staff - because this is still the greatest country the world has ever known.

And I´m alive.

I also taped Perry Mason to watch. And for all the fans of Midsomer Murders, there is another series by the same writers called Foyle´s War. It´s a dectective story set in WWII in Hastings England. Very well done with great plots. And it´s on netflix.

Everyone is so funny here! I am watching the American Idol shows I´ve recorded. They are terrible and a huge waste of time. The singers are wailing, and the judges are awful. The doofy looking woman with the terrible wigs looks like she has a screw loose.

Thank GOD for fast forward. Maybe when they get past the auditions and put some instruments behind the wailing, it will improve.

Re #25

Forgetting about The Bamster´s Second Coronation for a minute, here are four items of interest the average bear in the street, whether black, brown or white, should know about Martin Luther King, not mentioned in the history books: (1) His official name of record was Michael King, not Martin Luther King (2) He was nabbed for plagiarism while working on his doctoral degree at Boston University (3) Was under intense FBI surveillance, for many years, due to involvement with communist organizations and why the Democrat controlled Congress never allowed his records to be opened before voting on the national holiday bill and (4) The late Reverend Ralph David Abernathy, one of his closest associates, wrote a book in 1989, entitled "And The Walls Came Tumbling Down: An Autobiography," detailing King´s obsession with, among other things, white prostitutes.

Have a nice day America!

Love Brit tv. My library system has tons. And the Foyle´s War series was written taking actual events from that time and making an episode about it. Learned a lot about how the Brits lived through WWII.

Although the last time I got depressed by election results, I watched all 3 seasons of Gilligan´s Island on dvd. Felt a lot better when I was done. Currently watching Inspector Lewis, MASH, and Big Bang Theory. Life is very good.

It doesn´t have to be blue Monday. TODAY is the day to watch Sheriff Joe Arpaio´s July 2012 COLD CASE POSSE press conference presentation, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=njjJA4apcsI with tons of digital forensic evidence showing the bamster should not be in office EVER. 1 hour, 15 minutes of truth, all of it stonewalled by the socialist Diane Sawyer press. But a few good souls have questioned the birth certificate in various degrees of intensity, ORLY TAVITZ going all the way to the Supreme court, JEROME CORSI writing a sensational book, DONALD TRUMP blasting questions on the mainstream media, bloggers MATT DRUDGE, JOSEPH FARAH, LUCIANNE GOLDBERG, MARK LEVIN, and many more, keeping the story alive from mainstream censorship. This fascinating video is the perfect substitute for NOT watching the fraudulent swearing-in-indoctrination
www.youtube.com/watch?v=njjJA4apcsI It’s been said that SC Justice Roberts will be administering the Oath to Obama, and will also be hearing Taitz birth fraud case against Obama.

I´ve even turned off WMAL, the conservative radio station in the DC area because of the ´´coronation´´ news at the top & bottom of the hour. WTOP radio published one picture on their website of an overflowing trash can with coffee cups all over the sidewalk. Obviously this is not a TEA party gathering in DC today. I still cannot believe this man was reelected in November.

Looking forward to those 2014 midterm elections!

And the Australian Open tennis tourney is really cooking.

They hit 115 degrees F in Sydney the other day.
Luckily that didn´t last long.

The tournament has a great new look since they got away from that aquarium green
motif a while back.
The bright blue looks great in the hot summer sunshine.

The Djoker played a great five-hour five-setter to advance. What a thrill!

Ya gotta make hay while the sun shines!
Have a great day!

I´ve had no radio or tv on over the weekend or today and plan on only listening to a repeat of one of my idol Mark Levin´s recent best shows during dinner tonight.

Aside from catching up on e-mail and taking a quick peek at Lucianne, it´s actually been a healthy boost for me not to listen, watch, or read any news.

[...] is unhappy at not being able to convince everyone, himself included that he is greater than everyone; and this unhappiness of his may be his most human trait, perhaps the only human trait in him. But what is not human, but rather something devilish, is that because of this unhappiness he cannot help taking revenge on people, on all people but especially those who are in any way better or higher than he.
And the survey says the name inside the braces is.....?
Stalin! That´s what Bucharin said in 1936, couple of years before stalin killed him.
Absolutely fabulous book by Martin Amis - Koba the Dread: laughter and the twenty million.
God, save our country from that!

The Drudge Headline pretty much nailed it for me: " 1461 Days"

Yeah! Buddy...And Counting!" Then we just have to support him for the rest of his life.

Woke up feeling scared and overwhelmed and very much alone to deal with it all. I´ve lost more than I thought I could bear since 2008 and it appears there is still more to lose.

But #14 reminded me of where my hope lies. I am encouraged to keep going...thank you Melody. May you be blessed this day and many more to come.

Watching the Casey Anthony movie on Lifetime. Hard to believe but less depressing that watching Obozo and Mooch in her drag queen wig.

Just wait until those who still have jobs and income, start preparing their income tax returns.

Even if based upon 2012 income and expense, everyone will likely witness a major drop in their expendable income, huge increase in health insurance premiums and the realization of the tax credits received this year will be long gone by next year.

BO´s second term (in his words, "the second coming") will be rife with misery; people losing more jobs, food, gas and energy prices soaring, government regulations that close and BK businesses, continued atrocities in the ME and No. Africa futher exposing how utter weak and impotent the US is in dealing with foreign policy and in particular with Islam.

I guess everything is going just according to plan for BO.

Spent today rehearsing with members of my music group and continuing to write new songs that express the despair.

This is how I stop the despair from taking over.

Actually went to the gym yesterday (it calls itself a fitness center) and attended exercise classes -- was that desperate for diversion.

Chef says preparing healthy Passover
seder to suit Michelle Obama
‘is a different (matzo) ball game’
New York Daily News, by Leslie Larson    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 4/17/2014 7:32:07 PM     Post Reply
Chef Vered Guttman braved the challenge of preparing a White House Passover seder in line with Michelle Obama´s healthy eating guidelines and lived to tell her story. "The traditional seder fare is hardly fresh or healthy," Guttman wrote in a post-dinner review about incorporating vegetable sides to "offset some of the Jewish carbs" like gefilte fish and matzo ball soup. And her hard work to keep it healthy paid off, as both the President and First Lady praised her quinoa-kale salad and even inquired after the recipe. Guttman, a D.C. based caterer, worked with White House executive chef Cris Comerford

Poll: Hillary Clinton’s numbers worst

A new poll shows former secretary of state Hillary Clinton´s (D) numbers hitting their lowest point in six years. Meanwhile, it finds that the Republican Party is experiencing something of a renaissance. The Fox News poll, from Democratic pollster Anderson Robbins Research and GOP pollster Shaw & Company, shows Clinton´s favorable rating dropping to 49 percent, compared to 45 percent unfavorable. The last time her numbers were in that ballpark was during the 2008 Democratic presidential primary race. After she ended her campaign, her favorable/unfavorable split was 47/46. Other polls have shown Clinton´s numbers --

Colorado Democrats

DENVER | Colorado Democrats abandoned their own divisive abortion proposal Wednesday, axing the bill after one lawmaker expressed indecision and it became clear they might not have the votes to pass it in a chamber where every vote matters. Democrats used a legislative maneuver to shelve a bill that would have banned any state regulation of reproductive decisions such as abortion and contraception. It had been scheduled for a vote Wednesday evening in the Senate, where the party holds a slim one-seat majority. The move came after Sen. John Kefalas, D-Fort Collins, said he wasn’t sure if the measure was

ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. - Innovative Title Services, Inc., a real estate title services company established in 2003, faces a tax penalty that could virtually shut down the small business. According to the company´s President, Michael Day, the nearly $20,000 late fee is being assessed on taxes that were never due in the first place. Day and his accountant have been appealing the penalty for nearly a year which is due on April 15.

New York - In the fall of 2013, I gave a TED talk on what I learned as a progressive, on-air talking head at Fox News, where I worked for two years before leaving and joining my current home, CNN. After all, one of the most frequent questions I was asked during my time at Fox was how I did it, how I was a fox in the henhouse – or a hen in the Fox house, if you will. (Snip) For a radical progressive who once harbored negative stereotypes about folks on the right, it was a turning point

London - British police said Tuesday they had intervened after North Korean embassy officials reportedly told a London hairdresser to take down a discount haircuts advert featuring leader Kim Jong-Un. Mo Nabbach said two officials identifying themselves as being from the Stalinist state´s mission took pictures of his M&M Hair Academy in Ealing, west London. They then demanded to know his name and ordered him to remove the "disrespectful" poster from the salon window, he told the Evening Standard newspaper. The poster featured a large picture of Kim´s distinctive short-back-and-sides hairdo with the slogan: "Bad hair day? 15 percent off

Washington - It´s Friday night in Eckington, a quiet residential corner of Washington, and the back alley is crawling with feral cats -- rich pickings for seasoned cat-trapper Marty King. "Here, kitty kitty kitty kitty," said King after setting four metal traps baited with flaked shrimp and fish cat food and lined with fresh newspapers. (Snip) Coast to coast, the Humane Society of the United States estimates there are as many as 50 million feral cats, or "community cats" as their advocates prefer to call them. That compares to 95.6 million cats kept as pets. For decades, standard procedure has

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
