The Instawife made ChiliMac according to the InstaRecipe.
UPDATE: Reader nk emails “I like to let my ChiliMac sit for exactly three minutes and eighteen seconds for the perfect consistency”. Yup.

Take, receive Light
From the Eternal Light
And give Glory to Christ
Who is Risen from the Dead.
From the Death of the Dead
And Granting Life to the Dead.
Christ has Risen from among the Dead,
Trampling Death with Death,
And to those Entombed,
He has Granted Life.

The Resurrection will be tomorrow at midnight.
Dafydd ab Hugh critiques Ben Stein's "Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed" here and here very thoroughly and thoughtfully.
And I like what Eric Clapton had to say on the subject too.

To paraphrase an old friend: The settlers, pioneers and mountain men who tamed this country used knives that you can buy today for about the price of a pack of cigarettes.

Whoever said "hell is other people" was dead wrong. Hell is being helpless.

I think these may be signs. Do we dare further renounce the Obamessiah He-Who-Tethers-Catastrophes-Using-A-Snake-For-A-Rope-From-Whose-Navel-Springs-The-Lotus?

Health Warning: Don't Eat In Restaurants In Canada
Wife: Why now?
Me: Because I have an appointment with [my dental hygienist].
Daughter: Daddy, no. You need to brush your teeth. When you go to [your dental hygienist] you need to brush your teeth. Not shower. Brush your teeth.
Chicago police killed a mountain lion in Chicago's Roscoe Village which is fairly well inside the City and although residential definitely urban.
We've had deer and foxes, along with the ubiquitous raccoons, skunks, woodchucks and opposums, in our yard this winter. They were extending their range because of the unusually harsh weather and deep snowfall. I suppose the puma was doing the same thing.
According to the linked article, it was well-nourished. I guess it found the food it was looking for. Owners of missing cats and dogs might be able to find "closure" now.

The original Olympic Games were a few days during which the Greeks would stop killing each other and gather to celebrate youth, health, strength and beauty. Poetry and music were also events.
The Greeks themselves were more forthright. They believed, Mr.Spivey suggests, that “all games were war games.” At a conference at Yale this month about Greek “hoplite” warfare — in which a wide array of Greek citizenry supposedly maneuvered together in vast, linked phalanxes — one hypothesis was that this reflected a revolutionary view of an interconnected citizenry. In this light all war games also became social games. At any rate all games were as serious as war, and none were about the brotherhood of all mankind.

(IsraelNN.com) Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has turned down a request from former American president Jimmy Carter for a meeting during his visit to Israel next week. The Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni both said that their schedules will not allow a meeting, but an anonymous Israeli official told the Washington Times, "You draw your own conclusions." Other officials have expressed anger at Carter's proposed meeting with Syrian-based Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal.
However, President Shimon Peres, Defense Minister Ehud Barak and Israel Is Our Home (Yisrael Beiteinu) leader Knesset Member Avigdor Lieberman have scheduled to meet with the former president, whose recent book compares Israeli policies on the Palestinian Authority (PA) with former apartheid policies in South Africa.
UPDATE: Maybe three out four.

Having Windows Task Manager running all the time does seem to help, though.
UPDATE: Its headless, blood-drained carcass may now be littering my hard drive if that's what "Error loading ...atgban.dll[, t]he specified nodule could not be found" means.

What is life?
Pain when we threaten it?
Pleasure when we advance it? Or just so we can endure it?

I'm driving west-bound on Addison Street in Chicago and at the southwest corner of Addison and Narragansett I see a full-size billboard with the black letters "I am so over you Sarah Marshall" on a white background. My first thought is the billboard owner is advertising his billboard for personal messages. Closer look, nope. The websight is www.ihatesarahmarshall.com. Click and draw your own judgment about this twerp, Peter Bretter.
UPDATE: Is is "viral" advertising for the new movie "Forgetting Sarah Marshall". Peter Bretter is a fictional character.
Do you think that your annoying pop-ups which interrupt my browsing will make me want to buy your product? Would you like to consider that your ad-server is cheating you by forcing your ads in a manner which makes people who see your ads hate you? And wanna bet that he is not doing something way worse -- like using browser hijackers to make it seem as though a hundred times more people are clicking on the ad than they really are?
I mean, just how godawful stupid are you?
