Yeah, there's no "corn" in corned beef, but I'm thinking one of the things is pepperCORNS so maybe that's where they get the name. I think it's more "American Irish" than Irish. Just like the Mexican food we get here is more Tex-Mex, than Mexican.
Well everybody slept last night so that's a good sign. And my eyes aren't burning today (another good sign). I'm feeling the need to clean the house. I'm wondering if I could use the "Clean House" (Style network show) motivator for my dd1, and tell her I'll get her something for her room (more bookshelves) if she gets rid of all her old stuffed animals that aren't good for her dust allergy and she never uses anyway.
Technically, the corned beef served in America on St. Patrick's day is Jewish.
Traditionally, it was/is boiled bacon and cabbage.
Glad everyone slept, Kathy.
Pat. He and his family will be in my thoughts.
I thought I heard the Michelle Obama has put commercials out basically telling people to be more responsible about what they eat and how much activity they get? Honestly, is there much more you CAN do without mandating that people must have X amount of exercise and eat <this> diet? And what diet would it be?
I mean, I agree re: pharmaceutical companies, and medical schools and insurance, but ultimately the responsibility comes down to what our decisions are and what we teach our children. Is it disgusting that the doctor rx'd abx for "what might become an ear infection"? Yes. Is it just as ridiculous that she hasn't been taught to question medical godliness? Yes.
I've taken my DS1 to the doctor for "sniffles" before when he was too little to tell me what was going on with him and I'd had a terrible cold which effected my asthma. I never presume to know the whole story, even hearing from both sides. People's perceptions are strange.
