At the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans today to keynote the closing session of the NADA Convention, Hillary Clinton told the auto dealers that she has not driven a car since 1996.  It does not mean she is not connected or in any way impaired.  It only means she is protected.  Others as well (for those who know).


01-27-14-Z-01 01-27-14-Z-02 01-27-14-Z-03 01-27-14-Z-04 01-27-14-Z-05 01-27-14-Z-06 01-27-14-Z-07 01-27-14-Z-08 01-27-14-Z-09 01-27-14-Z-10 01-27-14-Z-11 01-27-14-Z-12

She reminded me of another brilliant, beautiful, astonishing, and accomplished blonde who avoids driving if she can help it.  As Queen Elizabeth,  Helen Mirren appeared quite competent behind the wheel and reminded the groundskeeper at Balmoral that she was a mechanic during World War II.  As Helen,  she negotiated her lap elegantly and earned a top score, but she looked miserable behind the wheel on the British version of  Top Gear in 2008.  She admitted that she does not really like cars much and that her first car exploded.

Well, when you have the pedigrees these two ladies possess, other people are happy to chauffeur you around (I would).  While they are separated by one degree several times over,  my favorite is that Helen became Dame of the British Empire in 2003, the same year as Jane Goodall.   Hillary and Dr. Goodall both received honorary degrees from Scotland’s St. Andrews University at the same ceremony last September.

On a somber note, Hillary spoke about Benghazi.  If I am not mistaken, this is her first public statement about it since leaving the State Department last February.

About 2016.

So if you really love her, do what she wants and stop thinking about it.

When it comes to Hillary Clinton, apparently absence makes the heart grow curiouser and curiouser and the brain softer and softer.  The media’s blonde obsession with her,  that generated Politico’s  “shadow campaign” and “hit list” over the first two weeks of the year and Time Magazine’s dominatrix image in a recent cover story, progresses unmitigated by Hillary’s lack of presence anywhere.  Behind curtains and closed doors, she continues attracting media attention.

I predicted here almost two weeks ago that we were likely, in 2014, to see a plethora of these toxic mushrooms springing up on a regular basis – weekly seemed reasonable.

When the temperatures are just right overnight, you can wake up one morning after a dense dew or rain and see a plethora of mushrooms, some quite healthy and large, where the day before there were none.  If the first two weeks of 2014 are any indication, we are likely to see a literary metaphor of this phenomenon around Hillary Clinton.


What the meme will be next week or the week after  is anyone’s guess save those who are planning it right now, but it appears that for the better part of 2014 there will be rains and ensuing mushrooms that feed on the moisture because there are some who cannot be satisfied with watching Hillary doing her splendid work in the here and now and seek somehow to part the cloak of invisibility she has drawn around her plans for the future.

This week it is the New York Times Magazine ringing in with Amy Chozick’s self-congratulatory marathon event of meals, snacks, and drinks with various individuals associated with the Clintons and cleared to speak with her by Philippe Reines, one of the few who is named and actually pops his head into one of the many graphics of the labeled orbits revolving around Hillary.   The cover for the feature article, creepy and insulting, is a photoshopped, disembodied Hillary face floating among galactic clouds in a Kubrickesque way implying that removing her iconic hairstyle of the moment obliterates her power in a Samson-like way.  It does nothing, however,  to allay the media’s blonde obsession with Hillary although one thing might.

The article itself is a long trek from one restaurant to another which will bore Hillary supporters who know all the characters and the parts they have played.  There is one sole newsworthy item, and that is the names of Philippe Reines’s cats.  To save you the effort of locating that single tidbit, they are Ousay and Qusay, named after Saddam Hussein’s sons because, Philippe relates, they are brothers and as kittens they were terrorists.  Cat parents like me can applaud the truth and his creativity in cat-naming (no small challenge).  Other than that, no news – as predicted -  because Hillary is not making any, and they do want their sales, subscriptions, and traffic nevertheless.

The only thing that is new is the level of bizarre, tabloid weirdness of that cover which I will not show on this page.  Perhaps we will not continue to see these toxic mushrooms springing up regularly after all.  In their attempt to justify the HR decision of assigning one reporter to cover the beat of one private citizen running for nothing but grandmother right now,  the New York Times has jumped the shark to the possible detriment of future attempts at big media Hillary stories about nothing and the chagrin of the reporters assigned to that beat.  Nothing more to see there, folks.

(Once again, not linking to any of this. Either you have already seen it or you will have to search for yourself. Not giving them the traffic.)

In the run up to tomorrow night’s Grammy Awards,  Carole King was honored with the 2014 Musicares Person of the Year.  Hillary sent a video to the event at the Los Angeles Convention Center last night.   I have not found the video but will add it if I do.

CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. — Former Secretary of State, U.S. Senator and First Lady Hillary Clinton joined the Town of New Castle in swearing its newest municipal officials on Wednesday.

Clinton, who purchased a home in Chappaqua with her husband, former President Bill Clinton, in 1999, swore in Supervisor Robert Greenstein, Council members Adam Brodsky and Lisa Katz and Justice Noah Sorkin.

At the event, Clinton was kidded about a potential run for president in 2016. She told The Daily Voice when asked that she was not ready to make an announcement.

“Not at the moment,” she said.

Take a former Secretary of State and two time Senator who happens to be a long time, community minded resident of this town. Add three new inductees to town government and a town justice, who has already served six years. Pack in persons, Democrats and Republicans alike, from in and around town. And what do you get?  A swearing in ceremony for the history books!

Tonight, about 5:30 p.m.:  Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton Town Hall swore in Robert Greenstein as Town Supervisor, Lisa Katz as Deputy Supervisor, Adam Brodsky as Town Councilman and Noah Sorkin as Town Justice. The ceremony was also presided over by Congresswoman Nita Lowey and Susan Spear, a representative for Senator Kristin Gillebrand.

Awesome sauce!!!!

Many will remember that nearly a year ago PBS aired a  Makers film that featured Hillary Clinton among others.  Despite Hillary productions having received what in some cases have probably amounted to fatal publicity originating from Republican sources,  PBS intends to mount another Makers project focusing on our girl and hopes to dodge Republican unfriendly fire.

How PBS’s Hillary Clinton Film Hopes to Avoid Backlash to CNN and NBC Films

TCA 2014: What PBS’s “Makers” is doing differently from canceled projects

Hillary Clinton TV projects have had a bad track record lately: Conservative backlash helped kill planned films about the former Secretary of State at both CNN and NBC.


Clinton is one of many women featured in six upcoming “Makers” documentaries coming to PBS this summer. The films highlight women’s achievements.

“I think our trademark is historical context,” said Dyllan McGee,the Emmy award-winning filmmaker behind the project. “We’re looking at where Hillary falls in the line of politicians. What is her role and who has come before her? So it’s not just Hillary’s story. It’s a broad context.”

Good Nutrition For Healthy Bones and Healthy Brains

Some parents and caregivers must contend with picky eaters, who adamantly refuse food on a moment’s whim, while other families wonder how to manage their children’s voracious appetites. Regardless of the type of eater families have, feeding their children nutritious food is consistently named as a top concern for parents. And with good reason.

Good nutrition—especially during the first two years of life—is important to a developing child in several ways. The growing body requires a variety of vitamins, minerals and proteins for healthy development. And the young brain needs proper nutrition in order to develop normal cognitive, motor and socio-emotional skills. When parents make healthy food choices for their young children, they help establish good habits that can last well into adulthood.

Unfortunately, the number of malnourished children in the United States has more than doubled in some cities. More than 17 million children live in households struggling to put food on the table, and many of those often skip one or more meals a day. Pediatricians report that children who don’t get proper nutrition in the early years are more vulnerable to illness and chronic health conditions, and often test lower in math and reading.  Many also experience emotional problems like anxiety and depression.

But proper nutrition and healthy eating are important well before infancy. A previous newsletter discussed how a lack of proper nutrition during pregnancy can result in a range of health issues for the baby and even later on in his life, including high blood pressure, obesity, high cholesterol and diabetes. And studies even suggest that a mother’s food choices in utero determine the kinds of food that children will find appealing after birth.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that once children are born, they be fed either breast milk or formula exclusively for the first six months of life. Once infants are ready for solid food, parents and caregivers can begin offering a variety of vegetables, fruits, cereals and grains to their babies, while avoiding foods high in sugar and salt. During the toddler years, parents and caregivers can encourage children to eat well by offering a variety of healthy choices for mealtimes, as well as healthful snacks in between.
