Friday Open Thread

Happy Friday! I am still having some internet issues and am really frustrated – BUT, I cannot let my MotherTalkers down! So, onto some interesting stories that caught my eye…

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s wife and daughter were involved in a serious automobile accident yesterday, wherein Reid’s wife broke her nose, neck and back, and his daughter hurt her neck and had a facial laceration. Thankfully, it was reported that their injuries do not appear to be life threatening. Here’s to a speedy recovery.

President Obama donated his Nobel Peace Prize money to ten different charities, including $250,000 to Fisher House, a national nonprofit that houses families whose loved ones are receiving care at Veterans Administration medical centers. As well as another $200,000 to the Bush-Clinton Haiti Fund to help the country recover from the earthquake.

Have you heard the latest Palinism? Sarah Palin admitted to crossing the border to Canada in order to reap the rewards of socialized medicine! In the words of Bugs Bunny, “What a maroon”!

And finally, would you eat cheese made out of…breast milk?? A Manhattan chef recently began serving cheese made from his nursing wife’s milk. Gael Greene over at the Daily Beast decided to taste it and write a review. It’s…interesting, to say the least.

Personally, I am so glad this week is finally over! I am going to enjoy my well deserved weekend and there is a very real possibility that I will take my kids to Disneyland! Mickey Mouse, here we come! What are you up to this weekend?

Of course, this is an open thread and you are free to discuss whatever you wish. What else is going on?
