Retiring "Mission Accomplished" & The Long Hot Summer

Gwen's Take

Perhaps Oprah brought the President a cake when she joined his tight circle of Chicago friends for a birthday dinner this week. That’s more of a celebration than he has been able to have for any of his other landmark dates this year.

Consider the options.

SQUIRREL!!!

Gwen's Take

I loved the movie "Up." I would have given it my Oscar party vote for Best Picture if I hadn't seen (and loved) "The Hurt Locker."

But the part of “Up” which makes me laugh out loud every time I see the clip again, was the part about the talking dog. In it, an enthusiastic cartoon puppy speaks. (For some reason, I find talking dogs pretty funny.) But in this movie, just when he’s about to make a point, a squirrel (or something) dashes by. The poor canine immediately loses his train of thought in all the excitement, exclaiming “Squirrel!” and dashing off to chase it.
