Memorial Day, 2016: We Remember

You don’t rest easily these days, I know. How could you? The America for which you fought and died is all but unrecognizable, nearly fundamentally transformed into what you fought against. We elect fools, criminals and traitors, and too many think them gods. As William Butler Yeats said: “The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity.”

Enemies of liberty, of America, attack us from within and without, and our Commander in Chief opens our borders, won’t speak the name of evil, and helps the worst obtain nuclear weapons. He decimates our military and thinks global warming and ensuring male perverts have the right to hang out in women’s bathrooms and locker rooms matters more important than the preservation of freedom.

Up to 20 USA uneconomic nuclear stations soon to close

nuclear-news

piggy-bank--nuke-sadEconomics Point Toward Closure for Up To 20 U.S. Nukes, The Energy Mix, May 24, 2016 A leading nuclear industry lobby group in the United States says its members aren’t being paid enough for their power, threatening the shutdown of 15 to 20 generating stations in the country………

Speaking at a U.S. Department of Energy summit last week, Marvin Fertel, president and CEO of the Nuclear Energy Institute, said more than a dozen plants face possible early closure because they are uneconomic at today’s market wholesale power rates……..

The message appears to have reached U.S. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz, who told the summit that “the importance of incentivizing continued [nuclear] operation is very clear. Solutions are less clear.”

Earlier this month, the Omaha Public Power District proposed closing its 478-MW Fort Calhoun nuclear plant, the smallest in the U.S., and the Tennessee Valley Authority gave up on its unfinished Bellefonte nuclear…

Moscato Lemonade using @GalloFamily Moscato! #MoscatoDay
Get ready for your new go-to summer drink. Seriously I’m in love with this easy recipe for Moscato Lemonade! It’s not too sweet and not too tart and in my opinion just perfect! Light and refreshing and perfect for sipping on a hot summers day. I sliced a lemon and rinsed some fresh raspberries to go in the lemonade. If you wanted to get crazy you could muddle the raspberries and make a raspberry moscato lemonade.

Moscato Lemonade using @GalloFamily Moscato! #MoscatoDay
Gallo Family invited me to host a Moscato tasting party in honor of National Moscato day. Four years ago, they established the holiday to celebrate the deliciously sweet wine varietal that has everyone talking. Bursting with sweet flavors of peach, honey, and ripe citrus, Gallo Family Vineyards Moscato is a deliciously sweet wine that you’re sure to love. We invited a few of our friends over to enjoy the three different varieties of moscato they produce. As well as enjoy my delicious recipe for Moscato Lemonade. I also served up a few appetizers to balance out the tasting!

Let’s talk about the three different types of Moscato.

  1. WHITE MOSCATO BURSTS WITH FRUIT FLAVORS– Delightfully sweet, this white wine is often simply referred to as “Moscato”. Hints of peach, honey, and ripe citrus make this a refreshing sunny day beverage. We suggest serving chilled to bring out the grape’s full taste. Consider a spring lemonade mix when hosting a pool party or backyard barbecue. For dinner, pair with spicy Asian takeout or Mexican dishes. If dessert is your family’s style you cannot go wrong with this vino. 2. SPICE UP THE NIGHT WITH A GLASS OF RED MOSCATO– If you’re looking for a medium bodied red, never fear. Red Moscato maintains peach and citrus elements with a bright berry finish. We think of this as our “cheese and wine” pairing, and if you are on the same page as us definitely try it with a Gorgonzola. Just like its sister varieties, Red Moscato is great for spicy foods and is best served chilled. 3. PINK MOSCATO WILL ROSE TINT ANY MEAL- There’s always someone who’s a little different in every family. Our Pink Moscato is just that – a bit different. It share’s the fruit flavors of white and red, but adds a hint of berry and orange. For when you’re feeling fun and fancy free, this rose-colored wine is best served cool. Pair it with your favorite ice cream sundae for a delicious and sweet treat.

No selfies with seals (New England, USA)

The ocean update

Mothers may abandon their pups if you get too close. Credit: Marine Mammals of Maine. Mothers may abandon their pups if you get too close. Credit: Marine Mammals of Maine.

May 27th, 2016. Seal pupping season is underway in New England. If you are headed to the beach this Memorial Day weekend, you might see a seal pup resting on the beach.

There is no selfie stick long enough !

As tempting as it might be to get that perfect shot of yourself or your child with an adorable seal pup, please do the right thing and leave the seal pup alone. Getting too close to a wild animal puts you—and the animal—at risk.
