I cannot take credit for this story, I just happen to get it from my father-in-law and was confirmed yesterday.
Christopher Dodd, our Senator who lives about 10 minutes away from us(guess which home) stopped by the local gas station and proceeded to pick out two eggs out of a dozen egg carton. When he was told that they do not sell eggs individually, he said that he did not need the whole dozen as he was only in town for a couple of days.
O.k., so here are my points on this amusing incident.
- Could he not have given the extra to his neighbor?
- Doesn't he want to support his local economy?
- Would you think he just lost another voter who will spread this around the town area he lives in? And a gas station with many locals coming in?
- Where is it you can buy eggs individually? I do not know anywhere that does this!
Thank you Senator Dodd for adding more fule to the fire.

If you missed the President's news conference last night, like me(not a good night for me), here are a few sources to get you up to speed. Sorry I missed it, sounded like it was interesting.
What Obama said and what he meant
The full transcript, if you are looking for exactly what was said.
The Wall Street Journal seemed to downplay it, having an interview with Gordon Brown being the headline.
The New York Times pointed out the mood of President Obama, not a Jay Leno Q & A.

Here are a few of today's headlines to start your day.
The Northeast of the US has a chance for the GOP to gain some seats in 2010.
You think all information is available to the public about corporations lobbying and disclosure? Think again and see how some companies are just starting to open up and clean up. Also, taking a line from my husband's late grandmother Merle, "This goes with it", let's see if this bill gets far in limiting campaign fundraising.
Is this a temporary bliss with the market or for the long run? I know what my answer is but you make the call with Geithner's effort to spur Wall Street.
Another way blogging helps businesses.
What could you do with $53,000 a week? A divorce in Connecticut is making headlines for the wife that seems to need this amount for expenses she needs to cover every week! Wow......that certainly is not a sign of the economic times.
And finally, women may be good at it but I have always said that it is mutlitasking that puts too much stress on our lives. You make the call.
Got anything else you want to direct me too read today? Let me know. Have a great day!
Interested in growing the same grass that Derek Jeter plays baseball on at Yankee Stadium? You now have that opportunity! It surprises me that it took this long for the idea to come about, but the company that provides the special blend of grass for Yankee Stadium will be offering it to the general public. The article can be found here which was published in the New York Times this past Sunday.
I do think this is a neat idea for fanatic Yankee fans who you are looking for a unique gift. Not sure how practical buying the grass seed at Home Depot is, you certainly have to have the right elements in your yard such as full sun, New England with trees in every one's yard might be an issue. I might have to pick up a small patch for my daughter to grow, being she is a Derek Jeter Fan and a gardener in the making.

My daughter and I started some Zinnias and pansies(even though t is a little late) in a tray my husband bought that has individual dirt discs, a very easy way to start plants. I wanted this tray to be my daughter's, have her water it and watch it grow. I am thinking this year I am going to dedicate a small area of our vegetable garden for my daughter to grow vegetables she can take care of, such as cherry tomato, peas and some sunflowers.
