Bio
I'm a liberal woman from Michigan's Upper Peninsula, old enough to remember where I was when FDR died. My website, Ramona's Voices, was first published on the afternoon of Barack Obama's Inaugural after hearing his call to service. I include many voices much more eloquent than mine, because one voice isn't enough. Liberal-leaning with humor, except when the days are too dark and the enemy is too strong. Then it's war.

FRIDAY FOLLIES: The Cheesiest and the Choicest

Rate: 1 Flag
My pal Jan started this yesterday on Facebook with a "Hooray!  Hooray!  It's Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day".  I'm shocked that I didn't know about GCSD.  I love those things!  But when Jan crabbed about her favorite sammich getting the recognition it so richly deserves for only one day, I wondered what I could do to make her feel better.
Here it is!


Now there's a sandwich.  But the best part is that Grilled Cheese gets a whole month!  They even get a whole website!

Or two:  grilledshane has a site that brags "A Grilled Cheese no longer has to be white bread and American cheese". Okay, but we all agree a Grilled Cheese sandwich should be mostly cheese, right?.  Otherwise it's not a Grilled Cheese sandwich, it's a grilled stuff sandwich. (Try and remember that when you're busy re-inventing these things.)

 An outfit in L.A called The Grilled Cheese Truck (big yellow trucks serving up GCS) set aside an hour on April Fool's Day to give away grilled cheese sandwiches at Beverly Hills Porsche.  Fun!  But, ha ha, the joke's on us--this from the L.A Weekly:

It can be fun shvitzing in line while waiting for your meal, but it's also nice to have a table, chair, and maybe even some utensils to enjoy with your food. Mark Gold, chef-owner of Eva Restaurant, and Dave Danhi, co-owner of The Grilled Cheese Truck, are offering four- and five-course grilled cheese pairing menus ($35-$50) on Tuesday, April 5th. Depending on which option you choose, there will be a truffled mac and cheese melt, and Gold's butter poached lobster. Wine pairing is $20 extra.

Oh, man!  Those crazy kids!  But if that's not enough for you, there's this:




It just seems to go on and on. . .

But speaking of things cheesy and running on, I guess it's no secret that Donald Trump is thinking of becoming president.  He's looking into ways to do it without wasting time campaigning and/or waiting for votes, so in the event he figures it out and worms his way into the Oval Office, click here for a preview of the person we'll be hailing as chief.  (Sorry, embed disabled.)   

Shudder. . .I don't know why I put that in here.  Honestly.

Oh, wait. . . just had to add this to my homage to fromage:  Got this from Wonkette:  Sarah Palin will be pelted with cheese curds in Wisconsin on Saturday.  Cheeseheads attack!

Time for the sublime.  Eric Whitacre's amazing virtual choir performing "Sleep". (2000 voices strong from 58 countries:)


(I found this in an Op Ed News article by Rob Kall called A Bottom-Up-Virtual Choir.  He has links to other videos by and about Whitacre here. What an incredible accomplishment.) 

And finally, to further lift your spirits:  the power of words.



And the power of silence:
