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

 

Summer Cool Fruit Salad - Recipe by Deirdre Imus, The Imus Ranch: Cooking for Kids and Cowboys - I recommend using all organic non GMO ingredients.  There's nothing more refreshing - or good for you - than a bowl of sweet, ripe fruit. This one is as pretty as it is satisfying to eat. If all the fruits aren't available or there are others you prefer, let your imagination inspire your own substitutions.

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!

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

Michael Phelps First US Male Swimmer to Make Five Olympics - Phelps became the first American male swimmer to qualify for five Olympics with a victory in the 200-meter butterfly at the U.S. swimming trials Wednesday night, another huge milestone in the water but even more significant given what's happened away from the pool.
Andrew Luck got paid, but he should have held out for more - The numbers are eye-popping at first, sure. But within the context of the NFL quarterback market, Andrew Luck's new deal is a pretty big letdown.
Steven Stamkos re-signs with Lightning, will make $8.5M annually - The Tampa Bay Lightning signed their star captain to an eight-year deal Wednesday, keeping him off the market two days before free agency begins.
Miguel Cabrera homers off 30th MLB team - Cabrera joined an elite group of home run hitters, becoming just the ninth active player to homer against all 30 active MLB teams.

    Vinnie From Queens!

    6:05:12 –   Today is a very special day on the Imus in the Morning Program…a joyful day for a couple of people who we dearly love…who are among our favorite people on the planet…and we could not be happier for them.   Delbert and the Band will be part of ‘Imus at Night’ on December 5th at the Mohegan Sun.  Oh yeah…Bigfoot and Alyce are getting married tonight.

    “I KNOW I’M GOING TO REGRET THIS…BUT I MIGHT GET ANOTHER BLUES SONG OUT OF IT.”

    6:07:14 –   The I-Man waxes nostalgic about the 12 years that he’s known Bigfoot and Alyce, who were with us ever since the MSNBC days, and have been loyal staff members, manning the booth, in every Television incarnation we have ever been associated with.  We are looking forward to celebrating this joyous event with both of them…partly because of how much we love them both…but mostly because The Boss won’t be attending.  By ‘The Boss’, we don’t mean Springsteen, despite the fact that the wedding will be held in New Jersey.

    WE THINK THAT REFERRING TO ALYCE AS A LUMBERJACK IS VERY MISLEADING

    6:17:34 – Warner tries to pull a fast one, claiming that a ‘tie’ is a ‘win’.  Not according to Vito ‘The Butcher of Bologna’ Capobianco, who is an ‘expert’ on such things…and who is more than happy to ‘explain’ it to him.

    “IF YOU HAD A ‘TIE’…YOU LOST!”

    6:40:13 –  Paul Begala is on, and according to the I-Man, is the Spin MASTER.  At any given moment, he can provide an interpretation to persuade public opinion in favor for whomever he is an apologist at the time. He could turn Hitler into ‘A Misunderstood Romantic…With a Dream.’

    HE KNOWS WHEN YOU’VE BEEN SLEEPING…

    6:47:22 – Begala ends all speculation about whether or not Chris Christie is going to run.  He assures us it will DEFINITELY happen. He hasn’t announced yet, but, not unlike the Governor eventually walking into a Dunkin Donuts…it’s only a matter of time.

    “TIME TO EAT THE DONUTS…”

    7:05:12 – The I-Man asks a pertinent question:  “What time is sunrise?”   Usually the time when the sun comes up.  We’ll try to look up the actual time for you…but we’ll need to take our sunglasses off because there’s so much glare in the studio.”

    LITTLE ORPHAN ANNIE SAYS: “IT’LL COME OUT TOMORROW”

    7:15:46 –  Deirdre sents a frantic text to the I-Man.  Apparently there is a dead, white bird on their terrace.  It fell out of the sky in front of her…and it has no head.  This sounds like the pre-credits sequence of a ‘Law & Order: Special Victims Unit’ episode.  The D-Woman, understandably, sounded a little freaked out by the  incident.  A white bird, probably a Dove of Peace, dead on the terrace of the Imus Penthouse?  Sounds like a suicide, to us.

    IN ISLAMIC DREAM INTERPRETATION, A WHITE BIRD RESEMBLES YOUR ‘WORK IS CLEAN’, IF IT’S ‘BEHEADED’, IT MEANS… ‘DON’T BUY GREEN BANANAS OR RENEW YOUR MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTIONS’

    7:40:37 – Another exciting edition of ‘Vinnie From Queens’, the Sports Forum with Tony, Warner, Gunz and Lou.  Gunz, in light of the train wreck that he called his hairstyle on yesterday’s ‘Mensa Meeting’, chose wisely when he groomed for today’s appearance:  He wore a hat.  A knit, wool watchcap.  Which, unfortunately, looked like an fully unrolled condom on his head.  This kid has the fashion sense of Jose Feliciano.

    UNFORTUNATELY…THIS PROPHYLACTIC WON’T PROTECT YOU FROM…HIS THOUGHTS

    8:02:15 –   Given the success of “Blonde on Blonde”, “Mensa Meeting” and “Vinnie From Queens”, Dr. Bill Evans suggests a new segment, featuring himself, Al Roker and Lloyd Lindsay Young, called “What’s Up With That Cold Front.” 

    WE THINK A SEGMENT FEATURING ‘THE WEATHERMEN’ WOULD BE FASCINATING

    8:02:45 –   The I-Man has his own suggestion for a new feature on the program:  “Celebrity Divorce Court.”   ARCANE REFERENCE ALERT.

    DR. BILL MAKES A GUEST STARRING APPEARANCE ON IMUS’ NEW SHOW

    8:18:27 –   In Warner’s Sports Report, he is disturbed about a story in which a Beaumont, Texas, Assistant Math Teacher knocked out a 4 foot 11 inch, eighth grade student for teasing him about his favorite sports team losing.  The I-Man’s take?  What do YOU think?   “Hey, how about keeping your mouth shut there, Tiny?  Where’s your effing homework?”  

    THE ‘THREE R’S’: ‘

    “READIN’, RITIN’…AND RASSLIN’”

    8:40:13 –   Matt Taibbi is on to talk about the idiotic behavior of the media, handicapping the 2016 Presidential Race when it’s still so far off.  He shares the joyous news that he is about to be a new dad.  It’s a boy, and appears to be a chip off the old block.  He’s not even born yet and he’s writing a column for The New York Times.

    TAIBBI JUNIOR IN THE FAMILY BUSINESS:

    “THE CONUNDRUM EXTANT IN THE WORKPLACE REMAINS THE RHETORICAL QUESTION ‘WHAT DOES ONE CALL A CO-WORKER?’  THE ANSWER BROUGHT FROM ACADEMIA TO THE POLITICAL WORLD BY HENRY KISSINGER AND NOW BANDIED ABOUT IN THE BOARDROOM IS ‘COLLEAGUE’.  IT HAS A NICE UPPER-EGALITARIAN FEEL, RELATED TO THE GOOD FELLOWHIP OF COLLEGIAL, AND DOES NOT BELIE THE FACT THAT, IN MY CASE, THE COLLEAGUES ARE ALL SITTING IN A PILE OF THEIR OWN FECAL MATTER.” 

    8:55:53 –    We learn from Gunz that he has asked Carley to go to a concert with him.  We assume he had tickets to see The Eagles, because, he must’ve checked the temperature in hell…and it has been a little cooler. 

    GUNZ:  HERE’S YOUR SIGN.  THERE’S ANOTHER ONE RIGHT BEHIND THAT SAYS: 

    “YOU STILL DON’T HAVE A SHOT”
