What exactly IS the reason?

I'm wondering WHY Huma Weiner (wife of A. Weiner, famous sexter) is staying with this louse...and I cannot come up with a reason for her to stay with this little twerp.   He's been caught (again) with his pants down.

I read Robert Spencer's excellent blog, Jihadwatch, and his possible reason for her staying with the pervert is about the only reason that really makes sense. The woman has money, is a good friend of Hilary Clinton, so it's not like she'd be down and out financially, status-wise, or anything like that.

Robert Spencer did an interview over at FrontPageMag, (I think that is David Horowitz's?) that gives a well-thought-out rationale for her to stay with him.

Read it all. If you want some background on Islam, Jihadwatch also has "Blogging the Koran", which does a good explanation of the verses, and  how it's put together, etc.

I also recommend his books, good reads, all of them!

And in case you guys felt hungry for something, here is what we are having for dinner tonight:

Bacon/Mushroom Quiche (serves only 2 at our house!)

1 smallish onion, diced fine
about 8 slices thick-cut bacon (about..and I nibble while baking, so it turns out to be less than 8 slices!)
8 oz package fresh mushrooms, sliced
about 1/4 cup red wine (don't cook with wine that you would not drink - you don't want bad wine)
1.5 cups shredded swiss cheese
2 tbsp flour (mix with shredded cheese)
3 eggs
2 cups half & half (or heavy cream if you prefer)
pie crust (I use those pre-made rolled up pillsbury pie crusts that are refrigerated, that come in packs of 2)
10" pie plate

Slice bacon into bits, and fry up in a skillet.  Remove, and drain on paper towels.  Keeping some of the bacon grease in the pan,   Stir in the onion, saute just a bit till tender, then throw in sliced mushrooms, add the wine. I eyeball the amount of wine I put in this. Cook down till the mushrooms and onions are cooked. Set aside.   Preheat oven to 425f.  When it's ready, put pie crust (thawed) into pie plate, and prick a bit.. put into the hot oven for about 5 to 7 minutes - just enough to partially cook - making sure if you get a bubble in it, stick a fork in it & deflate it - take it out, while pie crust is hot, turn oven down to 350, spread cooked bacon bits around inside the pie crust, then  mix the onion/mushroom mixture with the eggs (beaten together with the cream), and then stir in the floured cheese - stir it up good,  and pour into the hot pie crust.    Stick back into the oven until knife inserted in center comes out clean - about 50 to 55 minutes.

We're having this with green beans tonight :)

The simpler life

Oh, how we look back on past times as "the simpler life" without all these darn rules and regulations that the bloated Federal government (illegally, mind you - Congress is authorized to pass law - not individual agencies) lays upon us.  Let's travel back to days gone by...

With a SEARS CATALOGUE! Yep, that old toilet paper stand-in, from 1934, when probably quite a few people still used outhouses out in the country.

You can page through it's glory here >  I'm up past page 84.

This is a great sucker-up of your time however, as I preheated the oven, but forgot to put the cottage pie in the oven to bake for when hubby got home from work last night.  The commentary at the bottom of each page is pretty darn good too...especially on the mineral oil (not a laxative!) page.

Don't know if I've blogged about this before, but if I did, I apologize. This is just interesting, looking at the prices, the items offered, and a bit of history.
