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

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.

    The Gunz Report

    6:05:00 a.m. – Gunz is filling in for Bernard this morning, who is home sick.  So the “Bernie Briefing” will now be “The Gunz Report”…as in: “a sharp explosive sound (especially the sound of a gun firing)”  This is a great opportunity for the young, ambitious, broadcasting ‘up n’ comer’…and so we are somewhat suspicious that we may have an ‘All About Eve’ situation here.  Where the Understudy uses Machiavellian techniques to create a scenario in which he or she can shine.  We wonder if Gunz provided Bernie with a Flu-Laden cup of coffee last week.  In sports, it would be akin to the tale of ‘Wally Pipp’, who was a Yankee First Baseman, who showed up to the stadium one afternoon with a headache and was replaced by a rookie known as ‘Lou Gehrig.’   Who is Wally Pipp, you ask?  Exactly.  

    IF HE’D JUST TAKEN AN ASPIRIN, HE’D BE IN THE HALL O’ FAME TODAY

    6:07:17 a.m. –   We learn that Dagen did not watch her husband ‘Rollo’, (Not his real name) on the very fine Bulls n’ Bears program on Fox Business this weekend.  When we press her on the subject back in the Green Room, she says, “What’s the big deal?  I’m on the TeeVee every damn mornin’.   He doesn’t watch me. Because the Imus show is on opposite cartoons.

    “ROLLO” WOULD RATHER PLAY WII… THAN WATCH HIS WIFE ON THE TV

    6:08:27 a.m. –  Connell does a story about the baby born with HIV who was, apparently, cured of the disease…causing the I-Man to note:  “Don’t want no Junkie Babies…baby.”  He stops short of giving Blind Mississippi White Boy Pig Feets Dupris the order to write a Blues song with that title, which is good, because it would be difficult to find rhymes for ‘AIDS’. 

    ‘FEETS’ IN THE STUDIO

    6:37:12 a.m. –  It’s ‘Bo Monday’, and “The Dietl” doesn’t disappoint.  He references the ‘Se-question’.   To which, apparently, he has ‘Se-Answer’.  He also wants to know if Imus and Connell, ‘Play Twitter’…as if it was a video game.  It’s not, and we know that for a fact, as if it were, ‘Rollo’ would be playing it in the morning instead of watching Dagen.

     

    7:02:44 a.m. –   There seems to be a little bit of tension between Dagen and Warner. Warner takes exception to ESPN treating the Dennis Rodman/Kim Jon Un thing as a ‘Sports Story’.  Dagen suggests that because Rodman went over to North Korea with the Harlem Globetrotters it sort of IS a Sports Story.  Warner sneers dismissively.  We want to warn Warner.  You do NOT want to get into it with Dagen.  Or we will be ‘Going to the Videotape’ as ‘Exhibit A’ in the Assault trial.  The videotape where you get your testicles handed to you. 

    GREGORY HINES WASN’T A EUNUCH UNTIL HE MET DAGEN

    7:07:16 a.m. –   Dagen and Imus argue about Danica Patrick, who, the I-Man maintains, “Doesn’t believe she can win.”  Unfortunately, in this argument it is DAGEN who can’t win…despite the fact that she believes she can.  The Boss turns off her microphone…which he says ‘Rollo’ wishes he could do. 

    SOON TO BE INSTALLED IN THE MCDOWELL APARTMENT

    7:37:59 a.m. –   Michael Riedel is on…star of the NBC smash… ‘Smash’.   Um…well, he’s not exactly the ‘Star’…then again, it’s not exactly a ‘Smash’ either.  So, it’s pretty much, a wash.

    MICHAEL REIDEL PORTRAYING A VISCIOUS, SNARKY THEATER COLUMNIST.  REALLY STRETCHING HIS ACTING MUSCLE

    8:05:18 a.m. –    Imus promotes the upcoming appearance of Fox News’ Bret Baier…and that he believes the man’s News Reporting is not biased at all, despite what the MSNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC and Al Jazeera junkies would maintain.   The I-Man does say, however, that although it could be possible that Mr. Baier was ‘Rockin’ a sheet somewhere’, it doesn’t affect his professional objectivity. 

    BRETT BAIER: “SORRY I’M LATE FOR THE MEETING, FELLAS!”

    8:16:23 a.m. –   Gunz, who has been in for Bernard all morning, obviously was taken by surprise when informed that he would be on camera for four ‘Briefings’ this morning…which explains why he is allowing himself to be shot wearing a shirt that looks as if it came from Howdy Doody’s Garage Sale, and sporting a haircut that he obviously had done during a power surge.  Dagen, normally a fan of Gunz’, says that not even SHE wouldn’t ‘Hit That’. 

    GUNZ HAS BEEN DOING A GREAT JOB ALL MORNING…BUT HE AIN’T ‘MAKIN’ IT MOVE’ FOR DAGEN

    8:37:45 a.m. –  Bret Baier says he “Just got off the Red Eye.”   Sleep-Deprived is not the way to start your week off when you have an on-air interview with the I-Man. 

    BRET?  HELLO?  BRET?  BRET!!  WAKE UP!!!!

    9:05:13 a.m. -    Connell has video of a new crimefighter in London…a British Man who is dispensing Vigilante Justice dressed…as Batman.   Problem is, he doesn’t exactly have a ‘Caped Crusader’ kind of body…

    HOLY SALAD BAR, BATMAN!
