Half an hour til a scheduled phonecall so I have a minute to say hi. As you can see, I am trying to get a bit more going on than the deadly silence that has been so much part of 2013 We will see if I can make this happen and continue to bore you with the day to day at 2 Camp Street.

Another bitter day and warm night by the fire being entertained by the MSNBC crew crowing over the new news swirling around New Jersey Governor, Chris Christie and the delightful news of greed around Governor Ultrasound, Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell and his lovely wife, former professional cheerleader, Maureen. I do not know which one I love more--the hamfisted folks from New Jersey--so clever, so clueless...or the absolute grasping demands of Ms. McDonnell from asking for a Rolex (for her to give to her husband for Christmas) to the money to fund a wedding the McDonnells surely could not afford, to the shopping sprees at Bergdorfs and private jets in NYC for that fun. Quite candidly, now that I muse over this, the McDonnells have the top spot because it is so stupidly "reality t.v.". so greedy and self centered, and so American in the most loathsome manner.  I love it that a campaign aide had to put the reins on Mrs. McD. over taking a very fancy Inaugural gown from Mr. Jonnie Williams, the ultimate "Uncle Sugar" (another new term coined  out of context by the loquatious Mike Huckabee). The McDonnells, hopefully, will admit guilt and get their own reality show to pay off the big bills and credit card debt that have backed themselves into. 

I admit, I am a Reality TV nut, but reality, in this case takes the cake.
