I am gonna get this done just barely.. I am just too tired and running on fumes and it is only Thursday evening. You might see this post published Friday morning at 4 am, but I usually type it up the night before. So there is not a lot here today (well there is not much here anyways) :-)
A Salute To The Amazing Asha Of Foodie's Hope...
I think I found her blog after she left a comment on mine. And I looked her blog up. She had me with her first recipe that I saw on her blog (speaking in a epicurean way that is). So I along with others are her fans. The pictures and recipes are always great and they are not restricted to just Indian food. Her talent and love of cooking permeate her blog. Anali's first amendment came up with this idea to honor her with a blog button but it really is more than that. So I am proud to say that I am a member of the foodie's fan club and I salute her with this lovely glass of Pinot Noir that I am having now..
Go read her blog if you have't you won't regret it..
And Anali says it better ...

I Salute These Two Women..
From the BBC...
An Indian tribe has given its consent to a lesbian 'marriage' in the eastern Indian state of Orissa.Late Night Funnies..
A priest belonging to the Kandha tribe led the ceremony between Wetka Polang, 30, and Melka Nilsa, 22, in Koraput district recently.
Both the women are day labourers and now live together in Dandabadi village.
Same-sex relationships are outlawed in India. The 145-year-old colonial Indian Penal Code clearly describes a same sex relationship as an "unnatural offence".
Sociologists say that a community blessing a same-sex 'marriage' is unheard of in India.
It was not easy for Wetka and Melka to convince their tribe that they wanted to get married and live together - the local community at first fiercely protested at the idea.
The two women then eloped to another village to escape the wrath of their neighbours.
Both the women have had unhappy experiences with men in the past.
Wetka says she walked out of her marriage to an alcoholic after years of abuse.
Melka's family had arranged her marriage with another local man much against her wishes - she managed to break the engagement by telling the man's family that he was mentally "not normal".
The two women now hope to extend their family by adopting the son of Wetka's elder brother.
"It is in book form and entitled, 'The Way Forward -- A New Approach,' a stark contrast from the book Bush had been operating from, 'Deeper and Deeper into the Hole That I Myself Have Dug.'" --Jon Stewart, on the Iraq Study Group report.
"I don't think President Bush understands these things. When they told President Bush that Dick Cheney's gay daughter was pregnant, he said, 'It's a Christmas miracle.'" --Jay Leno.
"A lot of talk today about Vice President Cheney's lesbian daughter, Mary, who according to the Washington Post's 'Reliable Source' is pregnant. Now, for legal reasons I'm not supposed to say anything too definite about this matter, so I'll just say this: Not too long ago, we may or may not have received a special rush order for a vial of Stephen Colbert's Formula 401." --Stephen Colbert.
"According to a new study, children figure out the truth about Santa Claus between the ages of three and six. Although the study says that the age is much later for some U.S. presidents." --Conan O'Brien.
Some Cab Eh?
