    Why The Five is a hit. :)

    Rats–smoker sounds great. You are definitely a serious “smoker”.
    Sunshine–my sentiments exactly about the Early Start/starting Point group. Solidad O’Brien is the most abrasive to me. Before the election, I would tune in to CNN occasionally. Haven’t tuned in once since the election and don’t plan to.
    The Middle East is heating up more and more each day. It doesn’t look like negotiations are going to happen.

  • Coffee Steve

    Good Morning Everyone

    @Rats & LetMeThink
    Hey Coffee Dude! could ya leave a couple of them baskets at the bottom of the fiscal cliff so we at least have a snack!!

    Each basket contains (1) case Green Beans, (1) case of corn, (1) 12-16lbs Turkey, (1) 8-12 lbs Ham (1) Stalk of celery, (1) 3 lbs onions, (2) Pints. Chicken bouillon (1) 10 lbs. Idaho Potatoes (1) pack of saltine crackers, 2 packs bread crumbs and (1) loaf of wheat bread.

    We delivered baskets to 30 homes yesterday and hope to get 40 today and the rest Wednesday. Maybe tiring, but as soon as you see the joy and smiles from the people who are getting them, it makes every effort worth it.
    And some mean old rich guy at our Church donated 100 $50.00 Wal-mart gift cards to each family as well. Mean old heartless 1% that he is :-)

  • Coffee Steve

    Well I’m out for the biggest part of the day, as I leave you here is the song I listen too each morning as I wake up, and someday I’ll tell you a little secret about this song :-), enjoy and have a great day everyone, and play nice :-) Peace & Grace to all

    Good Morning!
    Yep I am in it pretty deep! :lol: But I have a lot of fun doing it. The “hobby” just grew and grew. A wood box for the grill, then a smoker, then a second smoker, then a freezer, and recently another side by side fridge/freezer, of course the stainles top work table, the meat grinder/sausage stuffer :lol: :lol:
    but here is the best and most fun about it. I smoke all the stuff and then give it away and watch people enjoy it! I cant eat everything i smoke but I can give it away! Now that is FUN!!!

    Hi R. Boy,
    Happy Turkey Day to you d.d, Coffee, Gabrielle, Faith3, James, Boss,Matthew, Jeff, Let me Think, and others. I’m with you, I am delivering my 22 lb. turkey today and the less fortunate or ‘the poor’, something that the pres. has yet to utter, will enjoy it. The closest O. ever came was, “I have a mandate to help the middle class and people who are trying to get into the middle class.” So, he can’t say, ‘poor?’ You are going hog wild with your hobby, so enjoy. I bet the people who receive your smoked food, just love it. Oh, I’m trying not to pay too much attention to the Middle East, just b/cause it makes me sick to see civilians getting killed and maimed. Iran is lurking right around the corner and if and when they get involved….Dec. 21st is looking more realistic. My sister always says, ‘lights out’ on Dec. 21st. What can you do? BBL

    Rachel Maddow is a hard man to beat!

  • dana

    Nothing Ever Changes:: Israel minding its own business, living in domocracy and flourishing in capitalism gets attacked by thousands of missles….it then defends itself and is labled a terrorists state by Turkey, Egypt and the whole Mid East..Isreael needs to use this as an opportunity to finally purge Hama of its ability to do them harm..

  • Jeff

    Great to read your comments 1nancy2, have a great holiday!

    Have a great day Mr. Coffee!
    Heading back to LA this morning to show a Jr. Penthouse in the Wilshire Corridor, that a client is interested in…. It’s a bargain so I hope he brings his check book!!

    MSNBC will continue to gain as Fox news viewers are dying off, literally.

  • RedBarSoup

    awwww The Five couldn’t tell the whole truth if they wanted to. They failed to mention the pay raises that the CEOs got just years prior. One got a 300% pay increase from 700k to 2.5m. That’s not including the other 8 CEOs that got a pay increase or the fact that this company has such poor management that they have gone bankrupt THREE other times. But hey, The Five can lie and tell half truths because they are only entertainment not news. :)

    Well, the prez is sending Hillary off to the Mid east. Can’t see her doing much good unless there is a rather good wine list.

    MSNBC keeps talking about these pay increases that occured years ago, (it was three years ago. All of those people are gone.) You can’t keep saying that well three years ago there was mismanagement. That problem was addressed and they company still didn’t make a profit last year. Management took a pay cut also. These people are making $31,500 – $40,000 a year to work on a line. (People with college degrees aren’t making that.) You can buy a three bedroom, two bath, 1670 sq feet house for $55,000 in the area where these factories are located. So, they are making a very good living.
    The economy is bad. Skilled laborers, college grads, and Management personal are taking pay cuts of 10% – 20% and have taken pay cuts in the past four years because of the economy. They aren’t being promised to get any of it back either. But the union workers want step up and take they cuts.
