I will be supporting two of the members of the cast with enormous enthusiasm when the new show begins.

I have enormous respect and admiration for J.R. Martinez who is an Iraq veteran and who sustained horrendous wounds in service to our country. Despite his scarred face, All My Children cast him in the role of Brot, a similarly wounded war veteran and he is currently an integral part of the show and involved in a very steamy on-screen romance with an absolutely gorgeous actress. After watching his moving and sensitive performances over the couple of years he's been on the show, I have to remind myself that he has facial scarring, he is just that good an actor. So if the lad can move at all - he's got my vote.

My other fave is Carson Kressley who is a genuinely nice young man and a talented athlete. His show Carson Nation showcases his compassion and kindness toward others in difficult circumstances, while having seen tapes of his equestrian exploits has generated genuine respect from me.

My outside candidate would be Nancy Grace who seems to be displaying some serious self-deprecating humor. She's no sylph and she is controversial to the point of occasionally being annoying, but I think she is one tough female who can hang in there with the best of them.

Chaz Bono? Puh-leeze. Get that lumbering self-promoter off as soon as possible!

First, there was the earthquake on Tuesday which, while West Coast residents may decry us East Coast denizens as a bunch of "bedwetters" was severe enough to even shake up an old hand like me! It lasted longer than the average earthquake and was of a different sort than any I experienced in 20 years living in California. Different composition of the land mass to begin with. We've got rocks; they've got liquid! And the damage turned out to be pretty severe in some places due to the fact that we don't expect earthquakes and we don't build for them! So the National Cathedral and the Washington monument both sustained significant damage.

And now, on the anniversary of what would be my mother Irene's 95th birthday, here comes her hurricane. I'm just weird enough to believe that a hurricane named after my beloved later mother will not hurt me or mine but I'm still prepared. Letting the cats have one last (for today) romp on the deck and then we're buttoning down. Hard-wired land line connected, cell phone recharged, battery powered lamp charging - life is good! And thanks to my persistent sister, I have enough t.p., water and milk to ride out anything!

Hope y'all are safe and secure. Take good care.

ABC Television, both daytime and nighttime, is operating in visibly full panic mode. Why, you may ask? Because of losing Oprah Winfrey after 25 years of having a human cash register on your schedule.

First, they cancel two beloved soap operas. And before that, they had already announced they are shutting down their SoapNet Network so how much do they care about us, the fans? Had they thrown the quantity of advertising at these two daytime staples that they are now throwing at their despicable The View and the new shows The Chew and Anderson Cooper's new show in Oprah's old spot, both All My Children and One Life to Live would not be in any danger of ever being canceled. Neither show appears to be worth watching, and in fact, so visceral is my dislike for Mario Batali that even the delicious Michael Symon cannot tempt me to watch The Chew. In fact, other than watching Castle in the evening, I fully intend to boycott ABC-TV entirely. Why? Shows like Charlie's Angels and Pan Am appear to be thoroughly forgettable programs and I won't even discuss how awful I suspect Playboy will be! NBC appears to have some decent programming coming up as does CBS. More and more, however, I find myself enjoying TNT and other smaller networks like ION. I also have HBO, Showtime and Starz so why do I need to watch a network that offends and disgusts me? Biased, blatantly slanted news coverage? The despicable left-wing broadcasting of The View? Hell, I might as well subscribe to the New York Times! Thanks, but no thanks!

It's high time we start making it known to these networks how little they are offering us in the form of decent programming and how offended we are by their shoddy, blatantly pandering to the left bias.

If the news division of ABC had shown half the diligence in investigating Candidate Obama, we wouldn't have that p.o.s. sitting in the White House right now! So what have they done to attract our patronage, secure our loyalty and/or interest? Absolutely freaking nothing!

The endlessly corrupt and unlikable Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Delusion) has spoken out about 3+ million of her fellow citizens, thus:

“I’m not afraid of anybody,” the California congresswoman told constituents in footage that appeared on ABC affiliate KABC in Los Angeles, not backing down from comments made about President Obama earlier in the week. “This is a tough game. You can’t be intimidated. You can’t be frightened. And as far as I’m concerned — the tea party can go straight to hell.”

Now that you have defined your own future afterlife, Madam Waters, why don't you practice some of the civility your party is always talking about and seldom practicing? To be treated with civility, one must treat others in like manner - something you have consistently failed to do. And when the New York Times begins investigating your financial dealings and those of your husband, not to mention your pal in corruption Barney Frank, then we will see what we will see and find out who "can go straight to hell." If your skirts are clean, then you can run your foul and nasty mouth and not until, madam!

Just listen to this and enjoy but also bear it in mind. Do not think for one minute that we can afford to keep that pinhead in the White House in office for one second beyond 12 noon on January 20, 2013! He is by far the most inept and destructive, thoroughly incompetent slacker to ever occupy the Oval Office and for our own sakes, must be only a one-term President!

Especially in the past few months! No need to go schlepping up I-95 to D.C. to work. Mainly just sitting around the house, enjoying the always excellent company of Buddy and Rusty and generally trying to survive the uber hot summer and get through to more pleasant temperatures.

It all made me ponder how little of this kind of comfort our grandkids (well YOUR grandkids - I have no children so it doesn't actually apply to me) are going to experience. They are probably going to have to continue working until they're in their 90s. Then again, what with Madame Michelle "Do as I say, not as I do" Obama designing their school menus, they'll be enjoying it less! A lot less. According to the young people I've spoken to, school lunches have become uneatable in many schools. No salt is permitted, no pepper, no condiments of any kind. The food is unseasoned and tasteless! I know it's a foreign concept but food that is well seasoned is not necessarily unhealthy, particularly if you utilize a lot of fresh herbs and use a lot of lemon juice to remove the need for excessive salting. But then again, liberals are all in favor of ascetic behaviors as long as THEY don't have to participate in them! Hypocritical knuckleheads, the lot of them. A bunch of humorless, joyless harridans preaching their holier-than-thou version of living to people who actually find pleasure in the company of their children, feeling no need to ship them off to boarding schools, enjoy a healthy meal, well prepared and live in homes that reflect their history and interests. Why don't they just leave us alone? Because it looks to them like we're having too much fun, folks! And then of course there's the creeping influence of sharia law in this country, just as it continues to infect every other so-called civilized European nation. Now Norway is feeling the brunt of it. When will it stop? When we FORCE it to stop.

The cowardly liberal minority in this country is terrified that their sterile, self-centered little lives will be threatened or disturbed by actually having to do something to defend and/or protect our way of life. They will lie down for Islamic attempts at destroying our nation's Constitution and way of life until it's too late. We must do everything in our power to offset their slothful cowering!

Of all the things I can find to exemplify the problems in our nation, this drunken little troll is #1 on the list!

She dresses like a hooker, behaves like a juvenile terrorist and is far from attractive to look at! She has no class, no manners and has become famous due to bad behavior. And this is someone fawned over by the entertainment media! Do we no longer have standards of the kinds of behavior that will be tolerated? Remember when Ingrid Bergman was banned from Hollywood for having an out-of-wedlock child with her Italian director lover? Now out-of-wedlock children are littering the landscape and celebrities seem to think it's okay to birth a litter of children ala Angelina Jolie without repercussions! In fact. she is fawned over rather than being treated like a pariah! Steal another woman's husband? Sure, that's okay. After all, she's beautiful! No, no, that is not acceptable behavior! Furthermore, what is our tolerance of this behavior telling our children? The stability of a strong marital bond is something to be encouraged, not endlessly dissed on reality TV and elsewhere. There are some knuckleheads in Hollywood who still defend the infamous pervert Roman Polanski and still patronize Woody Allen films. Put your entertainment dollars to better use people!

Marriage isn't the panacea. It's damned hard work. I've never entered into the state myself because I know myself well enough to know that I would choose badly. My mother labored mightily to preserve her marriage to my father, despite his alcoholism, and I watched it kill her before her time. But then again, neither do I have CHILDREN. Bringing a child into the world isn't a cure for loneliness or depression or mental illness. It's a commitment to being strong and dependable and responsible above all. Your children don't need a buddy, they need two parents and a father is not an optional part of that mix, he's an essential component. The fact that you can have a baby on your own does not mean that you should!

Those we admire should deserve that attention, rather than being famous for being famous. There are enough slutty looking Snookie types out there. We shouldn't be celebrating them but rather marginalizing them for what they are - human garbage!
