Today, March 28th, is National Something on a Stick Day
I know I'm supposed to be abstaining from blogging (my promise) for a bit but I just couldn't resist posting this. Janell, of One Square Mile, this is essentially the comment I left you this morning.
I subscribe to a 'watch your weight while eating and still be healthy' daily newsletter put out by Hungry Girl. Your eating all those candy birds reminded me of her.
Hungry Girl has a recipe for Good Chick Lollipops (link).
"PER SERVING (2 skewers): 190 calories, 3.5g fat, 315mg sodium, 9g carbs, 1g fiber, 1g sugars, 28g protein -- POINTS® value 4*
Who says you can't have lollipops for dinner?"
They are made from chicken breast strips, battered, stuck on a popcycle stick, and baked. That sounds really good!
You can subscribe to her newsletter here
BTW, I have some Blue Bunny Crunch Lite ice cream bars in the freezer to eat if Mrs. Jim doesn't make these for me today.
I must be patriot and pay respect to
National Something on a Stick Day.

My next movie to see
'Three Stooges' coming together at MGM
Wed Mar 25, 2009, 02:54 PM ET • Source: Hollywood Reporter
from My Yahoo Movies
Well, I know Sean Penn and Jim Carey but I don't know Benicio del Toro (middle guy). That probably shows how much I see the movies too.
They are slated to play Larry, Curly, and Moe (the guy in the middle again??). Benicio isn't signed on the dotted line yet.
Here, with the Stooges, I don't know any of these guys as I never watched TV or went to the movies when I was growing up. At first it wasn't invented and then we didn't get it, and we couldn't afford to go to the movies. Ben Hur was my first, I went with my parents.
Mrs. Jim could drag me to something else before it comes out, which is slated for some time in 2010. I think I want to see Barcelona before we go there this April. We will have to rent that. Red Hut, here we come (maybe)!
To catch up or review the three Stooges history in two minutes, go here to the article on Yahoo.
By the way, did you see the tent city of homeless in Sacramento, California, on the NBC Early Show this morning? That's something that Bankers and us Republicans don't watch. Instead, they want to move those people along. Away from their property and banks. And watch Fox News all day long.
I am the exception, I will not watch Fox News. I can't stand the nastiness in their voice inflections and attitudes. And (another exception) occasionally I help feed these people (homeless, not bankers) at our local Salvation Army instead of spending my bonuses.

The grass withers and the flowers fall,
because the breath of the LORD blows on them.
Surely the people are grass.
Isaiah 40:7 (KJV)
I will visit my readers' blogs from time to time (time permitting).
You may leave comments here or on the other blog.
What will I be doing? Income tax; preparation for travel; travel (TBAnounced); catching up on your unanswered comments; and finishing (or attempting to finish) my unfinished tasks around here.
