This is Arthur Gemmell. A 67 yr old man denied benefits for nearly 2 years. Those 2 years he has spent living off scraps while protesting and appealing. He has protested outside nearly every job centre in the country. He spent the night anywhere he could while he done this on his way to parlaiment in London. Ignored by the press, today he was supposed to do his final run visiting every Job centre all the way to the scottish parlaiment with 3 appeals. He had a stroke yesterday and is now in the Royal. Say a wee prayer for him. # Janice Dick

As SG2 requested in the last thread:

Hey folks, lets get busy. Call @GovJayNixon at (573) 751-3222 RIGHT NOW & tell him it’s time to step up and replace Bob McCulloch.

Reign of April dropped it like it was hot about the Grand Jury and Bob McCulloch.

April @ReignOfApril

I think I want to talk tonight about how grand juries work, for those interested. Bottom line: The PROSECUTOR decides what facts to produce.

Maybe y’all understand that. But if the Grand Jury doesn’t bring forth an indictment, MIGHT be because of the way the case was presented.

Eggplant Tomato au Gratin – A Freakin’ Messipe

Originally posted on jittery cook:

Eggplant Tomato au Gratin - New Age

My friend, John Miller, says his wife makes messipes. That’s what I’m often accused of as well. If it takes a messipe to produce a lovely casserole like this Eggplant Tomato Au Gratin, then so be it. Some cooks may keep a clean kitchen, but they’re probably just Stepford chefs.

Eggplant Tomato au Gratin - New Age


  • 2 1/2 c vegetable stock or water with 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 1/2 c freekeh
  • 10 basil leaves, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1 c (1 oz) grated parmesan

Heat freekeh and stock in a medium-sized pot, then simmer for 20 minutes. Once it’s cooked, mix in basil, garlic, oil and parmesan.

Eggplant Tomato Au Gratin with Freekeh

  • 1 t each Herbamare or Kosher salt, cider vinegar
  • 8 oz medium-soft cheese, cut into thin slivers
  • 2 large tomatoes, halved, then thinly sliced

Friday’s color: orange yellow…:-)

“J’aime le jaune-orange et pour moi, c’est la plus belle couleur… Il faut toujours commencer par éprouver ce qu’on veut exprimer. Il n’y a rien de plus réellement artistique que d’aimer les gens.

“I like orange yellow, and to me it’s the most beautiful colour… We should usually begin by experiencing what we want to express. There is nothing more truly artistic than to love people. The one who hasn’t learned to say ‘it’s SHE…
