Let's Give 'Em Something to Buzz About: By Deirdre Imus, 8-23-2016 - There’s been a lot of buzz lately about honeybees, those quasi-nuisances that can send even the most stoic among us into a tailspin trying to avoid an encounter. And while a bee sting is undesirable, the pain you’ll feel then is nothing compared to the pain we’ll all feel – and soon – if we don’t do something to protect these sometimes petrifying pollinators. 

 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

 

Frances' Vegetable "Fried" Rice - Recipe by Deirdre Imus, The Imus Ranch: Cooking for Kids and Cowboys.  I recommend using all organic non GMO ingredients. Brown rice takes its name from the outer bran coating that is left intact rather than removed in milling, as it is in white rice.  Because of this, it is higher in fiber, vitamin B, and important minerals than white rice is.  It also takes a while longer to cook, but the delicious nutty flavor, as well as the additional nutritional value, make it worth the time.  The edamame in this dish also provides a good source of protein.

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: Deirdre.Imus@hackensackmeridian.org - You may have your recipe posted live on my Recipe Page!

    Diane Macedo is Getting Married!

    6:05:00 a.m.  –   We always look forward to the first proclamation of the day.  This morning, it is the following:  “All weather people are out of their minds.”

    WE DON’T KNOW WHAT THE I-MAN IS TALKING ABOUT, THIS MAN IS CLEARLY A TRAINED PROFESSIONAL

    6:09:47 a.m.  –   The I-Man is now getting called for TV parts and commercials.  Apparently, there’s an outfit that would like him to be the spokesperson for investing in precious metals, and the producers of ‘The Office’ want him to play a part…he has declined both.  Rob wants to know if the people at ‘The Office’ would like someone to PLAY Imus, playing a part.

    NIELSEN GOLD

    6:10:17 a.m.  –   We learn that our top of the hour Business Anchor, Diane Macedo is getting married.  Those of you Die Hard I-Fans will remember Diane as the lead singer of ‘Tribeca Rhythm’, the winner of the Imus in the Morning Battle of the Bands from a few years ago.  She and her fiancée will be tying the knot in London, as he is British…and she is flying the band across the pond to perform at the reception.   She, however, will not be singing, as she will be busy performing her Bride duties…plus, that would be a little weird; A Wedding Singer singing at her own Wedding.  That would be like a Moyle doing his own circumcision.

    “HOLD THE BABY STILL WHILE I DO MYSELF FIRST.”

    6:15:27 a.m. –   Warner gives his Oscar picks and GUARANTEES that Lincoln will win Best Picture, Daniel Day Lewis Best Actor, and Tommy Lee Jones Best Supporting.  If he is wrong, he will then have his ‘Guarantee Card’ revoked.  Although Daniel Day Lewis will win for his portrayal of The Great Emancipator, and Tommy Lee Jones will win for his role as   abolitionist, Congressman Thaddeus Stevens, and we believe Spielberg will take the Best Director statue… ‘Argo’ is a lock for Best Picture.  Turn your sets off right there. 

    “IF YOU HAD LINCOLN SCORING LESS THAN 24 POINTS…YOU LOST!”

    6:29:44 a.m. –    Bernie has been playing clips from Comedy Central’s Anthony Chiseldick, whose material the I-Man has clearly been enjoying.  We have, too.  We just wonder what the over/under is before Imus starts saying things like… ‘Why can’t you two bastards be that funny?’    

    “Oscar Pistorious won't be able to talk his way out of this one. Some people just can't think on their feet.”

    7:05:12 a.m. –  Geraldo promos his radio program with the following:  “Does the case against ‘The Blade Runner’ have legs?”  Um…that’d be like Pat O’Brien saying… “The People Vs. Larry Flynt…rolls on.”

    “PAT O’BRIEN IS AN @$$HOLE”

    7:16:12 a.m. – Warner says ‘Amour’ is one of the most depressing films he’s ever seen…about an 80 year old woman who has a stroke and her husband euthanizes her with a pillow.  Turn your ventilators off there!

    “C’MON HONEY…IT’S BEDTIME.”

    7:22:44 a.m. – We learn that our adored Stage Manager, Nat Candido, is ‘Looking for Love’…on Match.com.  With the hours he keeps and the standards he has, it’s difficult for him to ‘Meet People’, but given our deep affection for him, we desperately want him to have a Fairy Tale Romance.  So we take up a collection to insure that, at the very least…he can get a ‘Happy Ending’. 

     C’MON, LADIES!  THIS MAN IS SWEET, FUNNY, HAS A JOB… A HEART AS BIG AS STATEN ISLAND…A JOB…NO KIDS….A JOB…AND WILL TREAT YOU LIKE A QUEEN…(AFTER HE COMES HOME FROM HIS JOB)…PLUS, HE’S A HUNKY DUDE WITH A PENIS LIKE A CAN OF PEPSI   (DID WE MENTION THAT HE HAS A JOB?)

    8:03:32 a.m. - During the break, Imus speaks to our favorite Crazy Weatherperson, Dr. Bill Evans…and it appears that he is having some ‘Sexy Talk’ with the ABC “Meterolxgphsytsveftist”.  “Hey Bill…what’re you wearing?” “Nipple clamps and a Pirate Hat.”   “What’re YOU wearing, Cowboy?”

    “I LOVE IT WHEN YOU TALK SEXY I-MAN…I FEEL A WARM FRONT COMING ON.”

    8:12:18 a.m. –  Connell reports on a death row inmate in Texas whose last words were, “Let’s go, Warden”.  The I-Man approves.  We speculate on what HIS final words will be…so far, leading the pack is, “Hey, Wyatt…what the hell are you doing with that My Pillow?”

    “YOU WANT ME TO FLUFF THAT FOR YOU, DADDY?”

    8:31:23 a.m. –   Bob Beckel, our guest, reveals that on this afternoon’s edition of the ‘The Five’, the panel will be discussing The Oscars, a conversation he will be taking part in, despite the fact that he’s not seen ANY of the nominated films.  In fact, he hasn’t been to a movie since ‘Seabiscuit’.  And he only saw that because he thought it was about a Naval Caterer.  We love Bob…he wears suspenders better than Larry King, and will say “&%$^” at the drop of a dime… because he’s too fat to bend over to pick it up.

    “I’D GO SEE ‘LINCOLN’ IN THE THEATER…IF IT WEREN’T FOR THE FACT THAT IT WOULD MAKE ME WISH THAT I WAS LINCOLN IN THE THEATER.”

    9:05:45 a.m. – Imus again announces Diane Macedo’s impending nuptials, and remarks that he’s extremely happy that her fiancée is attractive.  “That way we won’t have any jug-eared babies…because there ARE some ugly babies out there.”
