Essex 5/2/09

Had breakfast at Me and My Girls in Westport Sunday. It's really a sweet place to eat; so shiny, spiffy and full of charm and lovely staffers (they're all relatives of Shirley). But of course, who isn't related to her. Really good breakfast size bagels at VanOrnam gallery made locally. Try 'em.

Oh, great maple festival celebration at the Adirondack Museum in E-Town. If you didn't attend you missed a grand event. At the same time, more or less, were the Say No to Underage Drinking Walk in Westport and the Remembrance walk in E-Town. Also on Saturday we saw volunteers remove the false ceiling at the Whallonsburg Grange. It certainly is undergoing a major makeover. When completed, the Burg will have an outstanding venue for the Arts.

In DNC news, we send best wishes to Joe Ecclesine. We miss him at the DNC. Still missing from the DNC are the sissies who go south to avoid winter, though I understand that Wayne and Donna are winding their way back home bringing sunshine, more or less, to our town.

In Political news, I see where Scot Murphy has won the congressional race for the 20th Congressional seat. Democrats have asked me to thank those Republican Nabobs for selecting Tedisco over Betty Little. While the Elephants did not select their candidate in a smoke-filled room, some nominating committeemen still had smoke-filled brains. When the secret selection committee refused to let Betty talk to them, only hermits living in the Congo didn't know that the fix for Tedisco was already in place. Lastly, we understand that out of the 16 supervisors up for election this year in Essex County, only two have decided to return to a sane existence, giving up the weekly chair spinning yoga session passing for the weekly meeting, and not seek reelection. There is one undecided, but we all know what that means.

Some people, likely intellectually challenged, have asked me what we talk about in the donothingclub (DNC). So here goes. After two hours in our Saturday session discussing how to correct our country's Health Care problems, the general consensus was that no one should get sick. We sent a tape of this discussion to Congress and we can expect at least 67 members to sign on to introduce a bill prohibiting sickness. Believe me when I say, that based on my 20 years of talking to Congressional members, such an action is possible.
