Lesson 505 – Quotable Chicks

Friday’s Quotes for the Chicks 

This is the coolest thing ever.
– Sue Lyons, Photographer

Yesterday, I got to cover the President’s visit to Nashua, NH  (just south of where I live.) I was also fortunate enough to have Sue Lyons there as a photographer. These are some of her terrific photos.

Hey, it was snowing, aint' nothing I can do about that hair (mine or Madi's)

Ace reporter in action - had the best talk with that young man

This isn’t the first time I’ve covered the President and as long as he keeps coming to New Hampshire, I don’t think it will be the last. He spent the entire talk speaking about Energy (man, if I were playing “Presidential-talk-shots, I would have been in trouble.) And although I would have liked to have had him say *something* about Healthcare, I understand that the President follows his own agenda and not mine.


Also, that Facebook text I sent from the talk got auto corrected from Fatti-Madi to Farting Madison. I haven’t changed the chicken’s name, it stands at Fatti-Madi.


And finally, as an extra treat, here is the incredibly easy Spice-pumpkin-butterscotch chip cookie recipe,

Combine 1 box of spice cake mix, 1 15-oz can of pumpkin puree, 1 egg, and 1 cup of chips.

Yup, that’s it, you’re done. (Not really a recipe as much as it is an arts and crafts project.)

Drop by spoonful and cook for about 15 minutes in a 350 oven.

You get a very cakey cookie, almost like a “dropped sweet-bread.”

Couldn’t be easier (and perfect for kids on vacation.)


Happy weekend everyone, health and happiness to the flock.

  1. Although I usually (though not always) vote Democratic, today I went to the local Republican Presidential candidate caucus. I think people segregate themselves too much by just associating with like minded people. No candidates were there. There a variety of points of view, but libertarian ones seemed to prevail, so Ron Paul may have carried our caucus. For WA as a whole it looks like Romney won and Paul and Santorum about tied for 2nd.

    As I am always difficult and march to a different drummer, I advocated for Gary Johnson, whom I think is a better Libertarian candidate choice then Paul. I don’t know if he got more votes in WA than mine.

    I argued against the efforts to repeal the recently passed homosexual marriage bill in WA. (My daughter and her partner of over 20 years want to get married.) The Younger caucus attendees were sympathetic; the older and more religious ones politely lectured me on sexual morality. I nodded politely and did not argue or back off.

  2. I should add I did not bring any live or stuffed hens to the caucus.
