Today is “Men Make Dinner Day”, the 1 guaranteed meal cooked by the man-of-the-house each year. Sure, millions of guys make dinner for their families on a regular basis, but this day is for the last remaining neanderthal homes where they don’t.
Here’s what we want to know. What meal does your husband make that he thinks is gourmet…but isn’t? but at least he tries…gotta give him that much!
I think the Calgary Herald wrote it best this morning: (I'll be saving this copy)
Barack Obama, the son of a black father from Kenya and a white mother from Kansas, was elected the 44th president of the United Stateson Tuesday night, breaking the ultimate racial barrier to become the first African-American to claim the country's highest office.
(Here's my favorite part)
A nation that was founded by slave owners and seared by civil war and generations of racial strife delivered a smashing victory to the 47 year old rookie Democratic senator from Illinois.
(This is not only a great moment in American History but World History) It's a great day to be alive! Frank
....more comments, here's what a friend of mine just emailed me!
Pretty amazing night!
When I was a kid our family spent a lot of time camping in the southern U.S., this was around '67-'69. The racism was unbelievable, we actually saw a doctors office with one entry door marked "whites" and another one marked "coloreds". I remember my dad saying that "in our lifetime we'll see a black president". My wife and I went to Memphis a couple of years ago we visited the Lorraine Motel where MLK was shot. It was amazing to see Jesse Jackson last night, who stood beside MLK as he died.
Last night's speech was every bit as important as "I have a dream" speech.
Hey now, I know it’s early and Christmas is still just under 2 months away but we were talking Christmas shopping on yesterday’s show, so I thought I'd mention this:
There's a new product out there you can get to give to your husband called The Little Pink Card. Cost about 10 bux (and you can probably make your own), but the concept is a good one. If your husband is forgetful or doesn’t get it (like most men), this card holds all the info he needs to pick out the perfect present. We're talking your favorite candy, your dress size, bra size, etc. Slide it in your husband's wallet and you might not have to stand in mile-long return/exchange lines on December 26th. Being spared that horror is a gift in itself. Guys, imagine the fights you’ll avoid when you mess up her dress size by 2 full sizes…..this is genius! Frank
