Deputy Funeral ~ First Date ~ Daytona ~ Oscars ~ Slow Cooker Spanish Rice ~

Good 37º raining morning. Be careful out there... full moon!

From a few days ago..
A retired deputy’s son took this video from his patrol car. The procession was more than an hour long. He was near the front of the group driving a Los Angeles County Sheriff's patrol car. Deputy MacKay was killed last week in a shootout with Christopher Dorner.

On this date 39 years ago Jerry and I went on our first date. The dinner was awesome, the date was magic, I was in love instantly! (So was he!)

Daytona was, as usual, with drama. Going that fast that close together is insane. The thing is, people go just to see the accidents! Gross. There were several of them! Congratulations to the winner, Jimmy Johnson for making it out alive!

Also big congratulations to Danica Patrick for winning the pole position and finishing in the top ten, in 8th place. Just think #9, you got beat by a GIRL! (Thank you Brian for that line!)

The Oscars... Hollyweird at it's finest. (?)

I could not believe some of the folks at the Oscars last night. Well, yes,I could. Hugh Jackman, charming. Bradley Cooper, cute. Charlize Theron, hair tooooo short.
Jennifer Aniston wow red dress. Sandra Bullock, darling as always. Some of those super poofy dresses were STUPID~!
Adele, could not understand a word she said in the interview with that bloody thick Cockney accent!! Then there was Robert De Niro and his UNCOMBED hair! What a creep.
Don't know much about him, but his wife shocked me.
Then there was Seth McFarland.... I was truly amazed, he was awesome. My favorite all time host is Billy Crystal, but Seth comes in second. He is good looking, has a killer smile, GREAT voice, and he's funnier than all get out!!! Yeah, he made the evening good.
LOVE the song, We saw your boobs" !! And then there was Ben Afflack's acceptance speech for best picture... GEEZE LOUISE! He was talking so fast and mumbling... and it was the dumbest one I have heard. Well, except for Sally Field's "you love me, you really love me" speech. Sure glad she didn't win last night. Hollyweird's "I love me show" always leaves something to be desired to me. I am not a big 'oh look movie stars' person. At least the politics were left out until, gag, the very end with that ghetto wannabe ho, Moochelle, reading the best movie winner. GAG. Oh, did I already say that. Hollyweird just can't stay away.
