Tupperware party means
big bucks for ´hostess´ in drag

Los Angeles Times, by Gigi Anders

Original Article

Growing up in a big, bubbly, close-knit family with six brothers and sisters, Robert Suchan´s role models were his beautiful mother Janene ("like Barbara Eden meets Grace Kelly meets Carol Brady and June Cleaver"), whose picture he keeps in his wallet, and his Aunt Barbara ("Eve Arden meets Jo Anne Worley meets Mrs. Roper, with a touch of Bea Arthur"). In time they would provide the ruggedly handsome Irish Catholic Long Island native — he looks like a cross between Alec Baldwin and Vince Vaughn — inspiration and a livelihood. The awakening came with the Dawn. As in dishwashing liquid.

Funny story. I think Tupperware is pretty expensive, but what do I know? My mom still uses her orange Tupperware from the 70´s.

A few years ago, I was walking down a dusty street in a very small central Mexico village, turned a corner to find an enormous sign painted on a building wall: "Tupperware" with a phone number. I had to smile.

# 2, I still have/use several items of Tupperware I bought in the 70´s when I was just starting out as a homemaker. (Some of it IS orange.). In those days Tupperware wasn´t that expensive. It was a good investment, most of my stuff is more useful than anything you can buy today.

Say what you will about the Tupperware Parties we attended in the 60´s and 70´s, but I am still using many of the items I purchased, or was given at my bridal shower in the late 50´s. My favorite mixing bowl is the light aqua GLASS bowl which came with two smaller pastel bowls. I didn´t know they still had Tupperware Parties. I haven´t been to one in over 20 years!

Now how do your relate the "you didn´t build that" phrase to this fellows success story?
Did the government instruct him on the use of makeup and God given sales talents? No. Did the government provide him with Tupperware sales training? No. Interesting.
An American success story, fellow brings himself out of poverty, (being a Social Worker taking care of the miscreant of society), pulls himself up by his garter straps and becomes a star.
I don´t misjudge him for his props, I admire that he uses them well in a Capitalistic endeavor.

Ah! Memories of Tupperware! It does sound like fun. When my mother passed, I kept finding big hoards of brand-new Tupperware still in the bags. I know that she went to a lot of the parties (she had a friend who was a dealer) & she bought it to give for practical wedding presents. That was the year that EVERYbody in the family got Tupperware for Christmas. I´m a real purist, I like the fifties stuff the best & still use it - (I also admit to collecting fifties Pyrex)!

My mother still has her Tupperware pieces as well. I remember fondly the pastel-colored cereal bowls (with lids)), and her very large square container (with lid), which she often used for sandwiches on picnics (or a long train trip when we traveled from MN to Louisiana), or her marvelous dinner rolls.

You can find many vintage pieces of Tupperware, some of them "new" in the original wrapping, on Ebay. I agree that Tupperware now is very expensive. I´ve recently discovered the "Lock & Lock" brand at QVC, and I´m hooked. It´s much less expensive and the quality is excellent.

#16, your mother probably got trapped into the same situation most of the rest of us did. Friends, neighbors and relatives were throwing the Tupperware parties and it was considered tacky to attend without purchasing. So, we purchased. And stored in plastic bags for the next generation to find.

May I be indulged a third post? :-)

Here is "Aunt Barbara" on YouTube, presenting a new product: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EtCSOtrl6g0

On a more serious note, one of the most compelling stories on the TV series "Cold Case" (of which I am a great fan), was called "Wednesday´s Women". It involved the murder of a young housewife who used Tupperware parties as a cover for her involvement in the civil rights movement; she and other housewives would meet clandestinely with black women, traveling from Philadelphia to Mississippi to host Tupperware parties on Wednesdays. You can view the whole episode on YouTube.

Have to say that is a much better wig than Moochelle´s.

Behind the White House´s Health-Law Dodges
Wall Street Journal, by Karl Rove    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 2/13/2014 10:00:23 AM     Post Reply
When President Obama told Russian President Dmitry Medvedev in March 2012 that "after my election I have more flexibility," most assumed he was referring to foreign policy. It turns out Mr. Obama´s ambitions weren´t so limited. Earlier this week, Mr. Obama demonstrated his imperial flexibility again, delaying another important provision of the Affordable Care Act. For firms with 50-99 employees, the president waived until 2016 the requirement they provide health insurance or pay a fine. Also, companies with 100 or more workers can avoid most of the law´s penalties if they provide coverage to at least 75% of their workforce. The

SAVANNAH, Ga. — Paula Deen has found a key ingredient to bringing some sizzle back to her career — a cash infusion worth at least $75 million from a private investment firm. The Savannah-based celebrity cook announced Wednesday that she’s launched an umbrella company that will oversee her restaurants, cookbooks, product endorsements and other remaining slices of her media empire. The new company, called Paula Deen Ventures, said private-equity firm Najafi Companies is investing $75 million to $100 million to help Deen make a comeback. Deen’s fortunes took a dive last year after comments she made under oath during proceedings in

There´s no way Comcast

C omcast is proposing to buy rival Time Warner Cable for $45 billion, combining the No. 1 and No. 2 cable TV providers in the country. The all-stock deal needs approval from each company´s board of directors — reportedly a done deal — the Justice Department´s antitrust division, and the Federal Communications Commission. The deal isn´t going to happen. Not in any recognizable form. First, here´s the argument for why it might: Comcast has 22 million pay-TV subscribers and TWC has 11 million, a number it has already suggested it could shave by 3 million under the deal. That would give the combined

State Treasurer Dan Rutherford routinely roomed overnight in hotels and a Chicago apartment with a low-level treasurer´s office employee whom he has given a 50 percent pay hike, raising questions about the workplace judgment of the Republican candidate for governor. Rutherford said he has shared a room with his executive assistant, Joshua Lanning, scores of times since taking office in 2011, a practice he says is a way to save money for his campaign fund. "We double-bunk in the campaign," Rutherford said. "We always double-bunk when we can. Totally as a cost-saving measure." Several human resources experts said superiors should avoid sharing a

President Obama has repeatedly suspended parts of the Affordable Care Act without the consent of Congress. The latest unilateral action happened Monday night, when the administration announced another delay of the employer mandate, the law´s provision that businesses with more than 50 employees must provide their employees with insurance starting in 2014 or pay large fines. In July, the president decreed the mandate wouldn´t be enforced at all in 2014, and last night administration officials declared that businesses with 50 to 99 employees wouldn´t be penalized in 2015. Republicans have denounced such actions as "lawless." But if what the president has

The Obama Administration has decided to relax Obamacare’s employer mandate again. Much will be written about that decision’s impact on the law’s viability and the 2014 and 2016 elections. But there’s a bigger issue at play, here. Ever since Obamacare’s implementation has gone off the rails, the White House has been trying to fix the law by deciding not to enforce, or to selectively enforce, or to enforce differently, various provisions of the law. The problem with that is…that it’s not how American government is supposed to work. As any civics class teacher knows, the way American government is supposed to work

A North Carolina hospital says 18 patients were exposed to a rare and fatal brain disease after “extra precautions should have been taken, but were not.” Novant Health Forsyth Medical Center in Winston-Salem, N.C., said surgical tools used on a patient suspected of having Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease should have been subjected to “enhanced sterilization procedures” to remove CJD-linked proteins called prions. Instead, the instruments underwent the normal, less stringent sterilization process and were subsequently used in 18 neurosurgery patients, according to the hospital. “Our standard procedure is to apply the enhanced sterilization process to surgical instruments that are used on any patient who

A Beaumont man was cited by police after riling up motorists by standing at an intersection carrying an AK-47 while dressed as a banana. Derek Poe, owner of Golden Triangle Tactical gun shop, said the stunt was part of the store´s grand opening after moving locations. Poe said the man in the banana suit was holding an AK-47 across his back with the barrel pointing down and holding a sign with an arrow pointing toward the store. He said this idea was to attract customers to the store. A Beaumont police spokesperson said officers temporarily detained the 18-year-old and found he had the rifle

It´s no surprise that Barack Obama´s authoritarian streak is revealing itself at last. It was always there; clearly apparent in his rhetoric (e.g., his envy of Chinese president Xi Jin-ping´s powers), his abuse of executive orders, his threats against Congress, his sultan with fly-whisk attitudes toward his opposition, and even his vacations, which reek more of third-world trash gamboling on the Riviera than any American leader (George W. Bush settled his mind by clearing brush in Texas, Reagan at his ranch in Santa Barbara. Obama unfortunately finds the brush already cleared in Martha´s Vineyard and Hawaii.)

Michelle Obama´s lust for luxury has always been a bit of a problem for her husband and Democrats in general. Jetting off to five star resorts with a large entourage has too much dissonance with the rhetoric denouncing inequality currently in favor with the left. But the First Lady has now outdone herself, and because a picture is worth a thousand words, the damage may be a bit more serious than the occasional grumble over designer shoes and livin´ large.

Less than 24 hours after President Obama illegally rewrote the law he had previously jammed down Boehner´s -- and the country´s -- throat, Boehner handed the budding dictator a clean debt-ceiling hike. Last October, Obama vindictively shut down the federal government upon his having refused to delay ObamaCare, which of course is exactly what he himself lawlessly did on February 10, 2014! Of course, Boehner is hardly in a position to argue now, having foolishly (immensely so) accepted responsibility for the shutdown. Never mind Boehner´s cowardice (we´ll get to that in a moment); what kind of moron cedes that kind of maneuverability to
