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!

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

Ibaka Shipped to Magic; Oladipo, 2 Others to OKC - The Orlando Magic acquired forward Serge Ibaka in a multiplayer trade Thursday night with the Oklahoma City Thunder.  The Thunder received guard Victor Oladipo, forward Ersan Ilyasova and the rights to power forward Domantas Sabonis, who was taken with the 11th pick in the NBA draft on Thursday night.
 
Novak Djokovic Could Face Roger Federer in Wimbledon Semifinals - Djokovic could face Federer in the semifinals as he bids for a fifth consecutive major title and the third leg of a calendar year Grand Slam.
 
Draft shocker: Bucks Pick Thon Maker at No. 10 - Once the most intriguing prospect in the high school Class of 2016, Thon Maker wasn't even considered a first-round pick in the latest round of mock drafts, so his selection at No. 10 overall came as shock to some.
Lincecum Struggles in Second Start for Angels - Lincecum lasted just three innings against the Oakland Athletics on Thursday. The 32-year-old surrendered four runs on seven hits during the 5-4 loss. He walked two and struck out two in the outing.

    Carley is Getting Hitched!

    6:05:00 a.m. – There is jubilance in the Fox Business TV Studios…but no joy over at the WABC Radio facility, Carley Shimkus, our Associate Producer, is, now, officially “taken”, much to the chagrin of ‘Gunz’ Gunzelman.  Although Carley has been dating her fiancée for the better part of two years, Gunz was under the impression he ‘Still had a shot’.   ROB had a better chance with Carley than Gunz did.  They say ‘Hope is the thing with feathers.’   We would disagree, believing that Hulk Hogan’s Boa is the thing with feathers, but you can’t fault Gunz for his ceaseless optimism. 

    SORRY BOYS…SHE’S ENGAGED

    6:07:17 a.m. –  Imus has changed his tune, and has pledged his undying love and support for Tiger Woods…not only does he  “…root for him…I root for the other people to miss.”   Which is a situation that the I-Man knows all too well.  Not only do his enemies hope they do better than him…they hope he dies.

    “IS THERE ANY WAY I CAN…REFUSE HIS SUPPORT?”

    6:3727 a.m. –  Father Jonathan Morris is on to discuss the Vatican…duh.  It’s not like he’s in to talk about March Madness…although he is somewhat ‘crazy’ this morning.  Having forgotten his clerical collar, he was forced to improvise and use a substitute.   Which, it turns out, is a Pope Francis Trading Card.

    BATS LEFT…BLESSES RIGHT

    7:05:44 a.m. –   Imus has great empathy for gays who want to get married. There’s a pair of lesbians down in Texas with whom he is on a casually friendly basis, he’s not sure how old they are…probably because ‘Crack don’t Crack’.  He is STAUNCHLY in favor of Gay Marriage…he is actually quite touchingly passionate in his zeal for their right to happiness.  Which isn’t a surprise, as…if there’s anybody who is sensitive to the desires of lesbians….it’s this old lesbian.

    THE I-MAN: PROUD SUPPORTER OF GAY MARRIAGE 

    7:37:59 a.m. – Melanie Bloom is on to discuss Deep Vein Thrombosis.  As attractive as she is, we were somewhat disappointed to learn that ‘Deep Vein Thrombosis’ isn’t what we thought it was…it actually has to do with a medical condition that involves blood clots…and not…well, a ‘Deep Vein’.

    NOT THE KIND OF ‘SWELLING’ WE HAD IMAGINED

    8:05:18 a.m. –    We learn that Buzz Bissinger has…um…a ‘shopping problem.’   Apparently, he’s a shopaholic…but that’s not the worst of his problems…he is a big fan of leather clothing…and has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on it…but even THAT’S not the the worst of his problems.    Some of the clothing he purchases…and WEARS…is…um…women’s.

    BUZZ ‘FEELING PRETTY’   WE’RE NOT GONNA LIE…HE LOOKS PRETTY DAMN GOOD IN THAT LEATHER CAT COSTUME

    8:14:23 a.m. –   After having his heart broken by Carley this morning, Gunz has set his sights on Liz Cho.  He doesn’t even stand a chance with MARGARET Cho.

    “GUNZ?  ARE YOU KIDDING ME?  I’D PUT A REAL ONE IN MY MOUTH BEFORE I EVEN CONSIDERED THAT!”

    8:17:23 a.m. –   Joseph Abboud takes exception with Imus’ assessment of how he looks in clothing.  Apparently, Joseph doesn’t look good in ‘Men’s Clothes’…which, lucky for him, isn’t a problem.

    WE DON’T  KNOW WHAT THE I-MAN IS TALKING ABOUT.  WE THINK JOE LOOKS ‘FABULOUS’

    8:37:45 a.m.  – Stuart Taylor is on to discuss Prop 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act.   He is a fascinating interview, which is saying a lot, considering it takes place on the same morning that we hear Carley is engaged and Buzz Bissinger likes to wear Leather Bustiers.

    “OKE-A-LEE DOKE-A-LEE, I-MAN…BUT THE LORD ISN’T IN FAVOR OF SAME SEX UNIONS…”

    9:05:45 a.m. –  It’s Diana Ross’ birthday, and the I-Man relates a disturbing story…apparently, he and Ms. Ross spent an evening drinking together at the La Semana resort in St. Maarten.  We wonder if Diana remembers that night, and, if she would like to do it again sometime…or go back in time to undo the first time.  We are thinking the latter…because ‘Ain’t NO Mountain High Enough’ to keep the I-Man far enough away from her…

    “OH MY GOD…I JUST SAW HIM IN A BATHING SUIT!”
