What is now the Slovak Republic.

It was Austria-Hungary back then but all four of my grandparents were Slovak. I don't know exactly where my mother's parents were from, but my dad's were from a village near Bratislava. My grandmother's family home was still there about 20 years ago.

I am very proud of my Rusyn heritage.

Gerrymandering is still OK in PA, ruling by Philadelphia circuit court:*

Pennsylvania can keep its congressional map, a judicial panel in Philadelphia ruled Wednesday, rejecting an argument from a group of Democratic voters who contended it should be thrown out because the state lawmakers who created the map in 2011 gerrymandered it to help Republicans.

The court cast aside the argument that districts should not consider politics, saying partisanship is part of the system.

An appeal in the case would go directly to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Alice Ballard, a lawyer for the plaintiffs, said she and her clients were still processing the ruling and the one from North Carolina and considering their options.

A separate challenge to Pennsylvania's congressional map is pending before the state Supreme Court, which has scheduled oral arguments on the topic for next week in Harrisburg. Legislative Republican leaders on Wednesday filed documents in that case, arguing the Democratic voters who sued are attempting to achieve through the courthouse what they could not in the voting booths."


*(I'm not sure of the proper name of the court. I couldn't find it in the article.) The fight goes on though!

A blessed Orthodox Christmas!



Christos razdajetsja! Slavite jeho!

Today is my birthday.

I'm kinda bummed because I feel old.

The National Dog Show is on NBC.

12:00 - 2:00. Yea!!

It's Conor Lamb! Dems choose candidate for PA-18 to replace Tim Murphy:

BREAKING: Conor Lamb wins the Democratic nomination for Congress in #PA18!

"Im honored that the Committee members have put their trust in me to fight for our district and make our voices heard in Washington. People in our district are sick and tired of being lied to by hypocrites who promise us jobs but never deliver, promise us health care then try to take it away, promise to protect Medicare and Social Security then try to gut these programs to pay for corporate tax cuts. Im going to expose that hypocrisy. Im going to take the fight against their anti-middle class, anti-American agenda right to them. And by the time we get to March 13th, there will be no doubt who truly represents the families of this district. Were going to fight for every single vote, and were going to win.

He will face off against republican Saccone on March 13. VOTE!!

All spices and seasonings are ridiculous.

I needed 1/4 tsp of poultry seasoning for a recipe. A bottle cost between 4 and 5 dollars. I improvised with a little of this and a little of that. It tasted fine!

Do you have an Aldi near you? Sometimes you can get a bargain in there. Good thing about vanilla, it lasts forever.
