NY Party Time for Super Tuesday, the NY Giants Parade and Mardi Gras

Call it a Trifecta, but the convergence of the multi-state primary day, including New York, this morning's downtown ticker-tape parade for the Super Bowl Champs, and Fat Tuesday make for a mighty Party Time Harmonic Convergence.

Time to pull out the cookbook. Pigs in a blanket? A little guac? How about a Mardi Gras cake with a little figurine of Eli Manning or Ron Paul hidden inside?

I just discovered the delightful Betty Crocker's Cookbook for boys & girls (1975) at the Internet Archive. For anyone who enjoys the artistry of baking and cooking, I think it's time to put kids back in the kitchen and whip up the magic for the whole family.

I'll be reporting on the exciting events of the day, in addition to items previously scheduled. The only bummer is the weather forecast - ground lightening is forecast for later this morning around the time of the Giants ticker tape parade. Also, Transit Advisory! The Mayor (who sort of runs for President) asks that anyone going to the parade this morning should stay off the 4, 5, and 6 trains, because they're too crowded anyway with regular commuters. So, walk! And wear galoshes.
