    Well just for today no flying pictures. I remember Menagerie said her birthday was in January, but I did not know when. Since I’m going to be gone for part of the month, I thought “Oh I’ll find a cute Jack Daniels cake and maybe they have something else like a drink or BBQ recipe”. Well! – went down that rabbit hole! There is JD everything! Since I can’t drink and post flying pics, we’ll have a party today! It’s a TGIF/birthday party!
    Happy “birthday” Menagerie πŸ˜‰ Here’s a bouquet for you

    Here’s your cake. The recipe came from the “Jack Daniel’s Hometown Celebration Cook Book Volume II”. It’s a chocolate cake made with 1⁄2 cup Jack Daniels Whiskey with additional sprinkled on top while warm, then “Serve with gobs of fresh whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.”

    I don’t think it’s big enough for all the Stellars, so I got one THIS BIG for everyone! hahaha!

    Here is the 3 liter cradle old #7 bottle for our bar (the single barrel personal collection starts at $10,000., so that was out – sorry ’bout that.)

    Now for the food we need a smoker/BBQ complete with JD wood chips

    which results in these yummy BBQ ribs from the JD World Championship Invitational Barbecue

    Here is what one contestant was handing out for dessert – YUM!

    and finally we need music for our party, along with some fancy shoes for us girls. At first I thought “who could ever dance in these things other than Melania”, but then I thought “Oh well, if we stumble around a bit we can blame it on the heels, not the Jack!” πŸ˜‰

    Oh my! These are FUN people! & it was fun finding all this to share with you. Happy day Menagerie/Everyone πŸ™‚ It’s Paartay Time!

    I think today has the potential to be a yuuuuuge news day.

    1) Jim Acosta unwittingly made a Pro – President Trump, Pro – Wall Video.

    2) Rep. Dan Crenshaw announces that he will not take his salary until federal workers begin receiving their paychecks. (Are you listening Freshman Democrats?)

    3) President Trump will not back down.

    4) It seems that the Clinton/Obama branch has its eyes set on destroying Ocasio. If not there is no way these charges would have been brought let alone seen the light of day.

    5) β€˜Democratic Socialist’ Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Fined by New York for Failing to Provide Workers’ Comp

    6) The latest Pelosi/Schumer opposition point to The Wall is β€œMeh tunnels.”

    7) Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a close to being counted down as our as she ever has been.

    8) Joe Lieberman is roused.

    9) The Freshman Republicans are not beholden to the elite old crotches and RINOs of DC. The Latter do not have the power of the residency behind them for their Machiavellian operations as did every cabal before them. Imagine some goat telling Crenshaw how to vote πŸ™‚ !

    10) Ana Navarro should be fired, sadly she won’t be but she certainly presented a horrifying clear graphic of who the pro-ilegal immigration crowd is they do not care a lick about American lives. In fact the despise Americans.

    11) Beto live streamed a dental cleaning? Crazy people are asking for the reins of our sovereign nation.

    12) The #walkaway movement continues to open people’s eyes.

    13) Beto O’Rouke, Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren all think they have what it takes to beat President Trump in the 2020 election.

    14) The MSM is slowly turning on Ocasio in order to protect the ruling class elites. Conclusion brutal democrat civil war on the horizon.

    15) The Iran regime is falling.

    16) President Trump showcased people who live along the border, victims of illegal immigrants, and Border Patrol agents in a devastating segment against the pro-illegal opportunist.

      Item 16 goes way back, decades back. In the early 90s farmers, ranchers and others living along the borders used to tell the military on border watch ops that they were getting hammered. Illegals and mules were cutting fences, trampling crops, letting livestock loose and even attacking residents in their homes. They beg military for spare boobytrap simulators to use as early warning devices and warn them about ones they’d already emplaced.

      Border ranchers on both sides have informal agreements on returning each others stock that fence cutters have loosed and more than one rancher/farmer deep on the US side has been surprised by Mexican military and/or police on their property. My fav there was the US rancher who was surprised when a Mexican military Blackhawk landed on his ranch and a full SWAT team deployed and set up defensive positions.

      Oh yeah, we need a wall, not only to keep illegals out but to keep Mexican military and police from wandering 20 to 40 miles into the US, harassing US citizens and then claiming they didn’t know they were inside of US territory as the border’s poorly marked.

        100% Truth. Did you see the guy in the cowboy hat in the presser? He was very matter of fact about the reality of being a border resident.

            I believe you could secure if they were allowed to pick your brain. This is just madness. I think the presser was incredibly insightful for its exposure of the perpetual fraud that is coming from the democrats. One of the Border agents said that the MSM and democrats call what President Trump is doing a “manufactured crisis” the agent said that what the democrats and MSM is doing is “manufactured opposition” to reality.

              I think the Sinaloa cartel having an operation based in Chicago that supplied much of the Midwest with drugs and turned a better profit than the Mercantile Exchange is a good enough example.

      – I’ve always wanted to know what congress is doing/debating/voting on – but ahead of time. Do they post what they are going to do beforehand? Actually a list of bills going through congress would be good so people could contact their congress critters before they vote.
      – Demographic info
      – Privacy and big data info
      – Financial laws
      – Stuff that affects us peons in our daily lives that is NOT on the tube 24/7.
      There is a lot happening that is being ignored by the media
      Just some thoughts.

    The Worst Racism My Children Have Experienced Came From Black Peers

    A short and worthwhile read in my opinion.

    Liked by 1 person

    • TOG&C says:

      I have read a few different stories about racism between blacks – how sad.

      What a great mom the author is, I also like her “Kids Strong Enough to Think for Themselves”. I just yesterday had a conversation with a friend and I said how I was sick of hearing parents say how the only thing they want for their child is that they’re happy. Well, life is not going to be happy all the time! When you add that to how many people no longer believe in God, how many think of religion as politics, how many no longer value all life even if imperfect, it’s no wonder so many young people off themselves because of things we were told to toughen up and learn how to deal with it. DH said this is the extension of everyone gets a prize, and what happens when they don’t – they’ve never been taught how to handle the difficulties of real life. Reallife is not fake facebook/fake instagram life.

      I can’t forget that news commentator filing her nails as another spoke of citizens being killed. I’m not sure if she is a psychopath or sociopath, but it is chilling. Considering many don’t get upset at baby body parts being sold, and this psychopath’s attitude, it is no wonder racism and suicide is inculcated by those who wish to destroy our culture and country.

        Agree with all that you have said TOG&C.

        ”Real life is not fake facebook/fake instagram life.”

        In my opinion much of today’s youth (13 to 29) are far more attached to their digital life than their physical lives.

        It is heartbreaking to see people watching this camera, taking selfies, while they are β€œparticipating” in an event.

        youth is without a doubt losing their connection to their humanity.

        Not all of them. Maybe not even most of them. But a lot of them are.

        I know some youth is abandoning the world of technology and looking to find their humanity, this is heartwarming and hopeful.

        How did we get to the point that these people are not marginalized or on death row but are in the highest echelons of power in our country. Pelosi, Obama, Clinton, Ocasio-Cortez, O’Rouke, Waters, Schumer, Feinstein, Waters, Sharpton, Ryan, Flake, et al ?

        I do have hope. We have the #walkaway movement #blexit Kanye and on and on . There is a great awakening and those awakening are not of the silent persuasion.

        I hope that President Trump or some person or organization makes a public service commercial of Ana Narvano filing her nails and puts on on the tube. I don’t have a real lay out in mind, I saw one on Twitter with her filing with photos of some of those murdered transposed on the screen. That is a start.

        Ana seems to think those who are killed by illegal immigrants are dispensable like old paper cups. It is without a single factual argument that soon another American will be killed by an illegal immigrant it would be interesting if the universe has as sense of irony. Ana is pure evil.

    Lori Carpentier, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood Advocates of Michigan (PPAM) and Planned Parenthood of Michigan (PPMI)

    Planned Parenthood Official on Being Able to Kill Babies in Abortions: β€œLet the Fun Begin”
    January 11, 2019

    Lynn Mills of Pro-Life Michigan states: β€œLori Carpentier told the Livonia city attorney and city council that abortions will not be happening at their new Livonia locationβ€”thinking that’s all they have to say to make us go awayβ€”when certainly PP will be facilitating abortions out of that building through who knows how many abortion referrals. And now that the Michigan governor has vetoed the ban on telemedicine abortionsβ€”what can we expect at this Livonia location? Will Carpentier go back on her word? No one does more abortions in Michigan than PPβ€”and Carpentier says β€œLet the fun begin” in causing more abortions! She accused us of being unrelenting in our opposition to their proposed PP clinic and that is what we are and that is what we will continue to be!”

      A fetus/baby/clump of tissue:

      It is HUMAN
      Is the DNA the mother’s – NO
      Is the DNA the father’s – NO
      It is a separate person’s DNA, so is it really the “my body” they chant about?
      Just some basic facts to say to those who are pro-abortion, but have really never thought about it.

          They have denied life to millions of babies, their whole span of life. And RBG clings to the time she has left and fights to have what life can be left to her with every fiber of her being.

          Life is a gift, it is sacred and precious, and deep in their rotten hearts they acknowledge it too. They just want to be in charge of determining who gets to live, and who has to die so that their lives can be better.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
