TUCSON, Ariz. - A spokeswoman for the Phoenix Mars Lander mission says a hacker took over the mission's public Web site during the night and changed its lead news story.

Spokeswoman Sara Hammond says a mission update posted Friday was replaced with a hacker's signature and a link redirecting visitors to an overseas Web site.

I am sorry but if these guys can still be hacked, I can't help but feel a little helpless.

Addendum: To the news media. The final straw came when Hilary talked about possible assassination as reason for her to stick around in the race.

The lagging economy has seen a spike in poor service as companies "start to cut the wrong things," according to one analyst.

Al Franken Is A Comedian

An actual comedian wrote an article that appeared in Playboy magazine in 2000. Now he's a politician and not a politician running on his views in the expressed in the article. But when your the GOP you try something.

On Thursday, the Minnesota Republican Party released a letter, signed by six prominent GOP women, including a state senator and state representative, calling on Franken to apologize for his "demeaning and degrading" article.
"While you may attempt to defend your writing as satire, we hardly find anything defensible about your finding humor in your desire to have sex with women or robots that look like women simply to give yourself a good time," the Minnesota GOP women wrote in the letter. "This column is at its worst, an extreme example of the kind of disrespect for the role of women in society that all of us have fought our entire lives. At best, it is the disrespectful writings of a nearly 50-year-old man who seems to think that women's bodies are the domain of a man who just wants to have a good time."

Nuff said.

A little gold number should turn into real gold. Her little moment in time ruined by ass backwards pricks. What do they think a prom is? Go read the stupid comments on YouTube too. I wonder and times these people scream at their TVs when underwear ads come on.

HOUSTON - Marche Taylor’s prom night experience wasn’t quite the norm. That’s because a night of dancing and hanging out with friends ended in a confrontation with school officials over her choice of apparel.

The Madison High School senior was escorted out in handcuffs because school officials said her revealing gold dress was inappropriate for the school prom.

Cindy McCain On Cinco De Mayo

Well I had a whole bunch of snark I wanted to let lose here but, thank to google docs. All the formating was ignored and everything was just big blobs of text.

Food Network's Cindy McCain's mouth watering Cinco De Mayo Recipes.

Tortilla Soup

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, sliced
1 chipotle in adobo sauce, minced
1 tablespoon chili powder
2 teaspoons kosher salt
6 cups chicken broth, low-sodium canned
1 cup corn kernels, fresh or frozen and thawed
1 ripe tomato, chopped
1 cup shredded cooked chicken
1/2 cup cilantro leaves
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (about 2 limes)
About a dozen corn tortilla chips, broken a bit
Lime wedges, optional

Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, chipotle, chili powder, and salt and cook until the onion softens, about 5 minutes. Add the chicken broth, bring to a boil, reduce the heat slightly, and simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Add the corn and cook for 5 minutes more.

Pull the saucepan from the heat and stir in the tomato, chicken, cilantro, and lime juice. Divide the tortilla chips among 4 warmed bowls, ladle the soup on top, and serve with lime wedges, if desired.

Know-How Get every last drop of juice from those little limes. Before halving, microwave them for a few seconds and roll them under the palm of your hand to release the juice from the pulp.

Add a swirl of chile and homey tortillas to comforting chicken soup and you have a bold hug of a meal.

Grilled Corn Salsa

10 large ears corn, husked
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
Salt and freshly ground pepper
8 vine-ripened tomatoes, about 1 pound total
1 cup diced red onion, 1/4-inch dice
4 tablespoons red wine vinegar, or more to taste
1/2 cup julienne fresh basil leaves

Brush the corn liberally with olive oil and season well with salt and pepper. Grill, turning every few minutes, until light gold all over and cooked, about 12 minutes. Let cool and cut off the kernels. Discard the cobs.

Core the tomatoes and cut a small X on the bottom of each. Brush with olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and place on the grill, X side down, away from direct heat. Cover the grill and cook until the tomatoes begin to soften but are not cooked all the way through (or they will melt through the grate!), about 15 minutes. Set aside until cool enough to handle, then peel. Cut the tomatoes in half crosswise and squeeze out the juice and the seeds through a sieve into a bowl. Reserve the juices and chop the flesh.

Put the onions in the non-reactive medium bowl and toss with 2 tablespoons of the vinegar. Let marinate until the color changes, about 10 minutes.

Add the chopped tomatoes, reserved tomato juice, onions, basil, and 1/3 cup olive oil to the corn. Toss well. Taste for seasoning and adjust with salt, pepper, and remaining vinegar. The salsa is best eaten the same day but will keep, covered and refrigerated, a day or so.

Serve with tortilla chips or as a topping for tacos.

Guacamole with Cumin Dusted Tortillas

4 ripe Hass avocados, peeled, pitted, and chopped
1/2 red onion, chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, minced
2 limes, juiced
Salt and pepper
Chopped fresh cilantro leaves, to taste
Cumin Dusted Tortillas, recipe follows

Combine all ingredients in a molcajete and mix to a chunky consistency. Season, to taste, with salt, pepper, and cilantro. Serve immediately with cumin tortilla chips.

Cumin Dusted Tortillas:
Peanut oil, for deep frying
12 flour and/or blue corn tortillas, cut into quarters
1 tablespoons ground cumin
1 tablespoon kosher salt

Heat 2 inches of peanut oil in a high-sided saute pan to 360 degrees F.

Fry the tortillas, in batches, until light golden brown. Drain on paper towels and season immediately with cumin and salt.

Beef Fajitas

1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup tequila
4 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
2 tablespoons roughly chopped cilantro leaves
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon dried crushed Mexican oregano
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
2 pounds flank steak, fat trimmed
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
6 large flour tortillas
1 red bell pepper, stemmed, seeded, and thinly sliced
1 green bell pepper, stemmed, seeded, and thinly sliced
1 yellow bell pepper, stemmed, seeded, and thinly sliced
1 large white onion, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon minced garlic
Lime wedges, accompaniment
Cold Mexican beer, or tequila shots

In a bowl, whisk together the lime juice, tequila, garlic, cilantro, 1 tablespoon of the oil, the Worcestershire sauce, oregano, pepper flakes, cumin and coriander. Pour into a large zip-lock bag, add the steak, and seal. Place in a baking dish and refrigerate for at least 12 and up to 24 hours, turning occasionally.

Remove the meat from the bag and pat dry. Season on both sides with 1 teaspoon of the salt and 1/2 teaspoon of the pepper.

Preheat the grill to high, and preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Wrap the tortillas in foil and place in the oven for 15 minutes to warm and soften. Remove from the oven and keep warm in the aluminum foil.

Cook the steak over the grill to preferred temperature, 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium rare. Remove from the heat and let rest for 10 minutes before slicing.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat the remaining oil over medium-high heat. Add the peppers and onions, and cook, stirring, until soft and slightly caramelized, 12 to 15 minutes. Add the garlic, remaining teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper and cook, stirring, until the garlic is fragrant and soft, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat.

Thinly slice the steak against the grain. Divide among the warmed tortillas and top with the vegetables. Squeeze with lime juice and serve immediately with cold beer or tequila shots.

Pork and Rice Quesadillas with Orange Salsa

Cooking spray
1 cup instant rice, cooked according to package directions
2 cups diced roasted pork loin
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, drained
1 cup chopped arugula leaves
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1/2 cup diced oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes
6 burrito-size flour tortillas, regular or flavored
1 recipe Orange Salsa, recipe follows

Coat a stove-top griddle with cooking spray and set over medium-high heat to preheat.

In a large bowl, combine rice, pork, beans, arugula, cheese, and tomatoes. Mix well to combine.

Arrange tortillas on a flat surface. Top 1 side of the tortillas with pork mixture. Fold the other side over to cover filling. Transfer quesadillas to hot pan and cook 2 to 3 minutes per side, until golden brown and cheese melts. Serve with orange salsa.

Orange Salsa:
1 (11-ounce) can Mandarin oranges, drained and chopped
1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
2 tablespoons freshly chopped scallions
2 tablespoons freshly chopped cilantro leaves
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and toss to combine.

Yield: 4 servings

Roasted Corn, Jicama and Mango Salad

4 ears fresh corn, unshucked
1 large jicama, peeled and thinly julienned
1 ripe mango, peeled and chopped into 1/2-inch pieces
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro leaves
Citrus vinaigrette, recipe follows

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Put the ears of corn on a baking sheet and place in the oven for 45 minutes. Remove and let cool. When the corn has cooled, shuck it and stand it on end. Using a sharp knife, run the blade down the cob to cut the kernels off. Rotate the cob and repeat until all the kernels have been cut off.

Combine the jicama, mango, red onion and cilantro in a large mixing bowl. Add the cooled corn, and toss with the vinaigrette. Chill until ready to serve.

Citrus Vinaigrette:
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
1 teaspoon freshly grated orange zest
2 teaspoons sugar
Dash hot sauce
1 cup olive oil
Salt pepper
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro leaves

In a large bowl combine the lime juice, orange juice, orange zest, sugar and hot sauce. Whisk together and slowly add the olive oil, whisking as you go. Add salt and pepper, to taste, and cilantro and whisk until combined.

Yield: 1 1/4 cups

Margaritas for a Crowd

1 750-milliliter bottle silver tequila (use a high-quality, 100 percent agave tequila)
1 to 2 cups (1/3 to 2/3 of a 750-milliliter bottle) Cointreu or Triple Sec
1 cup freshly squeezed lime juice, plus several tablespoons extra for rimming the glasses
Several tablespoons coarse kosher-type salt, for rimming the glasses
About 1 gallon ice cubes

Just before serving, in a half gallon pitcher combine the tequila, the minimum amount of Cointreau or Triple Sec and the lime juice. Taste and add more orange liqueur if you think your margaritas need more sweet oranginess to balance the other flavors. Remember, you're tasting it warm and undiluted; when chilled and diluted, the flavors will be mellower and the lime's tartness will be more attractive.

Pour several tablespoons of lime juice onto a small plate and several tablespoons coarse salt onto another. Have martini glasses at hand (chill them for an extra special touch).

As your guests ask for their margaritas, invert a glass into the plate with the lime juice to moisten rim, then lightly dip into the plate with the salt. For each drink measure 2 ounces (1/4 cup) of the margarita mixture into a cocktail shaker. If you have a 2-ounce ladle that you can keep in the pitcher, measuring goes much faster. Add ice cubes (5 cubes for 1, 8 for 2, 10 for 3). Secure the lid and top and shake vigorously for 10 to 15 seconds. Strain into the salt crusted glasses and hand off to the lucky recipients


4 bottles dry red wine
1 cup brandy
1/2 cup sugar
2 oranges, sliced with rind
2 lemons, sliced with rind
2 apples, sliced with skin
1 honeydew melon
2 cinnamon sticks

Fried Cinnamon Ice Cream with Chipotle Chocolate Sauce

4 cups half-and-half
1/2 vanilla bean pod, cut and scraped
2 sticks cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch salt
1 cup sugar
8 whole egg yolks
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
Vegetable oil, for frying
Chipotle Chocolate Sauce, recipe follows
Whipped cream, for garnish
Fresh mint sprigs, for garnish
Maraschino cherry, for garnish

Combine the half-and-half, vanilla bean and seeds, cinnamon sticks, cinnamon and salt, in a non-reactive saucepan over medium heat. Bring the half-and-half to a boil to scald it, and remove the saucepan from the heat.

Beat the sugar and egg yolks in a bowl. Add the half-and-half mixture, about 1/4 cup at a time, to the beaten eggs and sugar, whisking in between each addition, until all is used. Pour the mixture back into the saucepan reduce the heat to medium-low, and cook, stirring, over medium heat, for 5 to 6 minutes, or until the mixture becomes thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Remove from the heat, strain through a fine mesh sieve and cool completely. Pour the filling into the ice cream machine and follow the manufacturer's instructions for churning time. Place ice cream in a freezer-safe container and freeze until firm, about 8 hours.

Line a baking sheet (that will fit in the freezer) with plastic wrap. Using a 1/2 cup ice cream scoop, form 8 large balls and place on the prepared baking sheet. Cover the ice cream balls with plastic wrap and freeze until firm, about 2 hours.

Whisk together the 2 whole eggs and vanilla in a small bowl. Place the graham cracker crumbs in a medium bowl. Remove the ice cream balls from the freezer and dip, 1 at a time in the egg mixture and then in the graham cracker crumbs. Dip the ice cream balls a second time in the egg mixture and then again in the graham cracker crumbs, pressing to coat well. Place the ice cream balls on the baking sheet and return to the freezer. Freeze overnight, or until very firm.

Pour the vegetable oil into a medium stockpot to a depth of about 3 inches and preheat the oil to 375 degrees F. Remove the ice cream balls from the freezer 2 at a time and immediately drop into the hot oil and fry for 15 seconds. Remove from the oil with a large slotted spoon, draining well and place on the serving plate. Drizzle with the Chipotle Chocolate Sauce, garnish with whipped cream, fresh mint and a maraschino cherry if desired. Serve immediately. Repeat with remaining ice cream balls.

Chipotle Chocolate Sauce:
3/4 cup half-and-half
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1/2 teaspoon ground chipotle pepper
1/2 pound Mexican chocolate, chopped
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Combine the half-and-half, butter, and ground chipotle in a small heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat. Heat the mixture until a thin paper like skin appears on the top. Do not boil. Add the chocolate and vanilla and stir until the chocolate melts and the mixture is smooth.

Remove from the heat and let cool.

The sauce can be kept refrigerated for several days, but it must be returned to room temperature before serving.

Yield: 1 1/2 cups
Pineapple with Lime and Coconut

1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
2 limes, zested and juiced
1/4 cup water
1/3 cup sugar
1 inch ginger root, peeled
1 pineapple, fresh, cored - available in produce department
1 kiwi

Combine coconut flakes with lime zest. Toast in a small skillet or in a toaster oven until coconut is golden brown remove from heat to a plate and reserve. Add lime juice, water, sugar and ginger to the pan or a small sauce pot. Bring to a bubble and dissolve the sugar. Remove syrup from heat and let stand.

Cut pineapple into bite-size chunks and arrange on a plate. Peel and slice the kiwi into thin disks and arrange on pineapple. Scatter lime-scented toasted coconut over the fruit and drizzle the syrup down over the fruit in a slow, even stream.

What Are Doing With Your Keyboard

Originally uploaded by psp12
Swabs taken in a London office found dangerous bacteria including e.coli and coliforms – both a common cause of food poisoning – lurking in computer keyboards.

The tests also detected staphylococcus aureus, a common bacteria which causes a range of infections from boils and impetigo to toxic shock and pneumonia.

This family of bacteria also includes the lethal hospital bugs MRSA and MSSA – forms of staphylococcus which have mutated to become resistant to antibiotics.

This is in England after all. They don't wash like we do... JK. Ok, so yeah my keyboard is nasty too but that because I am too lazy to clean it. I dragged a vacuum across it and only some dust came up. A DAMP with alcohol cloth. Maybe a cheap microfiber one. Oh by the way 70% polyester 30% polyamide.
