I've been suffering a slight aversion to the computer since Friday and have not posted.

As the President has seemingly disappeared from public view, soldiers are still leaking discontent with the Iraq shooting gallery while the Spin and Disinformational Athlete Sideshows have accelerated to a frenetic pace on the Toob.
The President when he does make his brief heavily orchestrated appearances continues to demonstrate signs of functional articulation disorder.
Patients with FAD:
If they are able to talk, usually make very variable articulation errors, their speech is slow, it seems very effortful to an onlooker, and there is a lot of 'trial and error' involved in trying to make particular sounds. The rhythm of speech usually seems wrong to the listener... Some give the impression of struggling to talk, exhibiting trial and error attempts to say words, accompanied by great frustration.
An explosion of summer produce has arrived at Farmer's Markets and stall vendors across the Ohio River Valley. Tomatoes, white corn and eggplant have been excellent thus far this season.
Here's a delicious and zero fat Salsa that is very similar to the previously posted Crab Salad.
Silver Queen Salsa
3 ears White Corn, parboiled for :30, cooled and cut from cob
1/2 Yellow Pepper, seeded and diced
1/2 Red Pepper, seeded and diced
5 Green Onions, chopped
2 Celery Stalks, chopped
Parsley, fresh and chopped
Basil, fresh and torn
1/2 Tsp Seasalt
1/4 Tsp Black Pepper
1 Tbsp Sugar
1/4-1/2 cup unseasoned Rice Vinegar
Mix, chill, serve. Yum!
Of course, the dessert that will end this healthy meal is a most unhealthy Cocoanut Cream Pie...a little thin yin and a bit of fat yang!
And, no, I don't mean the two in the above photo!
