Deirdre's Corner

Don't forget to catch Deirdre on Blonde on Blonde, Wednesdays at 7:35am and Psychos, Thursday at 7:35am on Imus in the Morning! 

 


Are We There Yet? By Deirdre Imus - The saying goes that with little kids you take trips, not vacations. A vacation is relaxing; a getaway involving children is usually anything but. Taking a trip therefore requires acknowledging that it’s no longer about what the adults want to do (occupy a lounge chair on a beach for three days straight, stroll through a museum, window-shop in Paris), but must include activities geared toward youngsters.  Read more...

 Celebrating 15 Years Protecting Children's Health & the Environment

 The Deirdre Imus Environmental Health Center®  - When you are among the first voices to speak out on an issue, it’s difficult to know if anyone is listening. When I founded The Deirdre Imus Environmental Health Center® at Hackensack University Medical Center fifteen years ago, concern about our children's health being impacted by toxic exposures in the environment was not the hot button, trendy issue it is today.  Read more...

 

Deirdre's Dish Pick

 

Ranch Tacos - Recipe by Deirdre Imus, The Imus Ranch: Cooking for Kids and Cowboys -- I recommend using all organic non GMO ingredients.  Seitan is sometimes called wheat meat because it’s made from gluten, which is the protein component of wheat with the starch removed.  There are recipes for making it from scratch, which is pretty labor-intensive, but luckily you can also buy it ready-made at most health food stores.  We love these meaty and cheesy tacos.

If you have a fond memory from your childhood about some of the dishes we post please click here to contact us, we would love to hear your story.

If you have a Healthy Recipe that you enjoy and would like to see others indulge in, please share it with us: DImusCenter@HackensackUMC.org - You may have your recipe posted live on my Recipe Page! 

Deirdre's Book Pick Of The Week

The Imus Ranch Foundation

With the closing of The Imus Ranch For Kids with Cancer, The Imus Ranch Foundation was formed to donate 100% of all donations previously devoted to The Imus Ranch for Kids with Cancer to various other charities whose work and missions compliment those of the ranch. The initial donation from The Imus Ranch Foundation was awarded to Tackle Kids Cancer, a program of The HackensackUMC Foundation and the New York Giants.  In addition, once the Imus Ranch for Kids with Cancer is sold, 100% of those funds will be contributed to The Imus Ranch Foundation.

Warner's Sports Corner

Pat Summitt Dead at Age 64 - Former University of Tennessee women’s basketball coach Pat Summitt, who amassed more than 1,000 career wins at the school and won eight national championships there, has died at age 64

England humiliated as Iceland knock them out of Euro 2016 - The Scandinavian nation of just 330,000 people, by the far the smallest country to qualify for a European Championship, inflicted a shattering 2-1 defeating on England - the country that has been the model for Icelandic football for decades.

Kris Bryant hits 3 homers as Cubs, Arrieta beat Reds 11-8 - Bryant became the first major leaguer to hit three homers and two doubles in a game, and Jake Arrieta added a solo shot in the ballpark where he threw a no-hitter in April, setting up an 11-8 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Monday night.

Wimbledon sensation Marcus Willis can count Roger Federer as a fan -  Marcus Willis had earned less than £225 ($292) in prize money this year and considered retiring as a player when qualification for The Championships was little more than a pipedream.

Katie Ledecky rules the pool on Day 2 of US Olympic Swimming Trials - On the second night of the U.S. Olympic Swimming Trials, the world's most dominant swimmer danced with the world record line, several more first-timers booked their tickets to Rio and a decorated veteran left us all wondering.

    Imus Gets Some New Wheels

    6:05 a.m.  – The Rodeo was rained out this past weekend, and so The ‘Wy-Man’, Wyatt Imus, calf roping prodigy and fruit of the loins of Don & Deirdre, was unable to compete.  He did, however, have the benefit of an extra few days of practice for the rodeo coming up this coming Saturday, October 6th.  The Boss was a great sport, running around the arena, allowing the future 8 Time World Champion to rope and tie him.  As you might expect, that got old real fast, so one of Joe Beaver’s ranch hands stepped in. 

    “HANK”, A GOOD SPORT  WYATT TIED HIM IN 6:067

    6:15:17 a.m.  – Warner is crowing over his record of football picks: 11 and 3.  Gunz had 10 and 4.  Not that bad, but Ring the bell, School’s In, Gunz.  Let the Master show you how it’s done.  At least this week.  Next week Warner could go 1 and 13.

    WARNER, BACK WHEN HE PLAYED ‘EPSTEIN’ ON ‘WELCOME BACK CARTER’

    6:36:29 a.m.  – It’s ‘Bo Monday’ today, and the ‘Gist-A –Tation’ of the appearance is that Bo is now the new face of Arby’s. He’s in their recent TV spot, playing himself, as a hard-boiled NYC Detective, trying to get to the bottom of the controversy over…Deli Meat.  Roast Beef can sleep easy tonight.  Bo is on the case.

    BO, PLUG-A-TATING THE BEEF-A-TATION

    6:55:12a.m. –  ‘Arnold Schwarzenegger’ is in the studio with us this morning.  The I-Man weighs in on the appearance: “I’ve read your bits.  They both suck.”  ‘Arnold’ replies:  “Well, you already did two lines from them.”  “Um…yes I did.”  “F*&% you, a#*hole...I’ll be back.”

    7:05:12 a.m. –  Wyatt has a new Roping Horse, ‘Red Cloud’, named after the Ogala Sioux Chief,   as opposed to ‘Red Cloud’, the Exotic Dancer at the ‘Pink Pony’ Gentleman’s Club in Huntsville, Texas. 

    “WHITE MAN COME, MAKE RAIN WITH DOLLAR BILLS”

    7:10:24 a.m.  Imus:  “The greatest restaurant on the planet is ‘Double Daves’ in Huntsville.  All you can eat salad, and they make ANY kind of pizza.”  It gives you some kind of insight into the I-Man’s somewhat hermit-like lifestyle, when the concept of a ‘salad bar’ blows his culinary mind.

    DOUBLE DAVE’S: THE ‘LUTECE’ OF HUNTSVILLE

    7:16:24 a.m. I-Man bought himself a White Diamond Escalade.   He hasn’t gotten the 22’s, or the Spinners yet, but he was pumping Biggie through the 36 inch subwoofers in the back.

    I-MAN BE ROLLIN’ WITH THE HOMIES

    7:18:06 a.m. –   Warner has been corrupted.  He now uses the word ‘Hosed’.  Of course, he uses it in the context of watering a flower bed. 

    WARNER ‘HOSING’ MRS. WOLF

    7:20:13 a.m. –    Imus:  “NAT!  It’s so cold in the studio, you can hang meat in here!”  We keep it that way because we don’t want you decomposing, I-Man.   Your expiration date was back in the ‘90’s.

    IMUS IN HIS ABBOUD JACKET ON A WARM DAY

    7:22:19 a.m. –    The Boss explains he got the EXL version of the Escalade.  He liked the short model better, but he needed the extra room for Deirdre, Wyatt, the dogs, his My Pillows, his doctors, all his oxygen paraphernalia, and, of course, his posse.

    THE I-MAN POSSE. HE BE ROLLIN’ 20 DEEP

    7:27:12 a.m. –   The I-Man introduces a new sponsor, ‘Hot Rocks’, an all-natural, libido enhancing supplement that Deirdre recommends highly.  We knew she had to be taking something to help ‘get her in the mood.’ 

    NOT THE ‘HOT ROCKS’ WE REFERRED TO.  THIS IS A PHOTO OF THE I-MAN’S SPINE

    7:38:06 a.m. –   Martha McCallum is on, who shows some interest in the aforementioned ‘Hot Rocks’ product.  One thing’s for sure, her husband wouldn’t need any to get him interested.  If Chamonix was smart, they’d put HER in the bottle.  EVERYBODY will wind up with an Arnold Schwarzenegger style libido.

    “NO, REALLY, IT’S JUST A COLD SORE.”

    8:09:02 a.m. – Imus announces that he is making this very fine ‘Behind the Scenes’ blog available for those of you who have not yet become ‘Imus Insiders’.  Well, welcome aboard, bitches…sit down, strap in and shut up.   It’s gonna be a bumpy ride for the next couple of days.  But first, a primer on what you need to know to enjoy this blog to the fullest:

    AS FUNNY AS DEAD PUPPIES UNDERNEATH THE CHRISTMAS TREE AT THE ORPHANAGE

      VAN MORRISON

    A DRUNK, SULLEN, MOODY, IMMENSELY TALENTED, A$$HOLE

    DESIGNER, JOSEPH ABBOUD

    TWO GUESSES WHERE THE GERBIL IS.

    8:13:44 a.m. -  Imus on Lindsay Lohan, ‘How do you get that messed up?  I peed in one phone booth, but that was about it.”  As if you had to pee in a lot of phone booths to make an impression.   Perhaps if there wasn’t a woman using that phone booth at the time, it wouldn’t have been a problem, but, nevertheless…

    6TH AND 52ND STREET, CIRCA 1978

    “HEY, MAKE YOUR CALL SOMEWHERE ELSE, MY BACK TEETH ARE FLOATING”

    8:14:11 a.m. – Imus humps Bill O’Reilly’s appearance tomorrow morning. He will be on promoting his new book, KILLING KENNEDY, which Imus has not yet finished reading, although he says it’s ‘fabulous’!  We don’t have the heart to tell him that JFK dies in the end. 

    “THIS O’REILLY GUY REALLY CAN WRITE…WAIT A MINUTE! 

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME?  WHAT A LOUSY ENDING!”

    8:17:12 a.m. – Warner reports that Jerry Jones is opening a ‘Virginia’s Secret Store’ in Cowboys Stadium.  Uh…Warner?  That would be ‘VICTORIA’S’ secret.  Trust us, you wouldn’t want to buy ANYTHING from a ‘Virginia’s Secret’ store.

    THIS IS VIRGINIA.  SOME SECRETS ARE BETTER LEFT…A SECRET

    8:37:39 a.m. -  Our guest is Tom Friedman, whom Imus has promoted, all morning, as a guest that nobody likes.  No, that would be Michael Graham, Ron White and Joseph Abboud.  Mr. Friedman is on to discuss the turmoil in the Middle East.  He goes out on a limb and says the situation over there is ‘Bad’.  This is the kind of in-depth analysis you won’t find anywhere else, folks.  If the Jews and the Palestinians ever make nice, this guy will be selling Falafels on the corner of 52nd  and 6th.

    “HEY FRIEDMAN, WHEN’S YOUR NEXT BOOK COMING OUT?”
