Corned Beef and Cabbage Is As Irish As Eastern Europe

18 Mar

Dear Yanks:
I realize that St. Patrick’s Day, on March 17th, is actually the Anniversary of His Death. I also know something about what the actual Irish actually eat. Those born in The Land of O’Donnell Abu, if they ever touch Corned Beef, well they do it in the proper NYC Jewish Deli, such as Ben’s Best or Katz’s Deli.
Corned Beef and Cabbage Is Eastern European Jewish, for crying out loud. It is usually from Russia, Ukraine and Poland.
In Northern Ireland it is Roast Beef & In the Republic it is Ham or Lamb. Wine is known to be consumed on this day in Ireland.
The Best Tasting Cabbage I consumed this past weekend, was not at an American St. Patrick’s Day Party, but after the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church Byzantine Rite Catholic Divine Liturgy of St John Chrysostom. The cabbage was stuffed and cooked a certain way. It was served with sour cream, Borsht, some salad and wine. It satisfied me as it was most delicious. 
There is the Actual Irish Way, with Mass and Roasted Beef, Ham or Lamb, as meals.
It was this past weekend when I experienced the Angle from which American Celebrations are based, from Ukrainians and between the Hospitality and the People, in all the simplicity of the meal, it was a grand Saturday Evening.

Deo Gratias!

Sarah Palin Called The Ukrainian Crisis in 2008 & Was Laughed Out of The Room-The Russian Troops Are In Ukraine

2 Mar

Sarah Palin called the Ukrainian Crisis and the Russian Planned Invasion in 2008.

The Laughter has stopped.

Sarah is RIGHT. An Indecisive President Obama would cause Russian Leader Vladimir Putin to possibly go through with an invasion of Ukraine.

On the brink!

Russia is sending more troops to The Crimean Region.

Sochi Doesn’t Need A “Slush Fund”

12 Feb

Sochi doesn’t need a “Slush Fund.” They have too much Slush on the mountains.

It is time for The Russians to truck in Snow from The Urals. And if need be, from NYC, Boston, Philadelphia and Atlanta, where all 4 Cities have too much White Stuff.

I hope that Sochi’s “Slush Fund” can take care of that.
