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

 

Vegan for Her by Virginia Messina - a blueprint for optimal health and wellness at any age, will show you how to: lower your risk for breast cancer and heart disease; manage conditions like arthritis and migraines; diminish PMs and cramps; build strong bones for life; enhance fertility; make an easy transition to a vegan diet; and incorporate principles of both fashion and compassion into your home and wardrobe.

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.

    Stopped at the IMUS store many years ago and bought a cpuple of T-Shirts. Fred was actually there. Nice guy. Sorry for the sadness this brings to the IMUS clan.

    I man and family. The wife and I have enjoyed your show for a long time. I always looked forward to hearing Fred when he was on. In our minds a True American. Anyone who roots for the USC Trojans has to be a great man. He will be sorely missed. Born and raised in Bakersfield California I will always remember his story of the ladies from Oildale. I think a three hour show remembering Fred with past conversations would be great. God bless you and your family, and God bless Fred.

    Don,
    I am sorry for your loss, my Mom passed at 86 years young on the 25th of July and I still and will always miss her. Mom had a dry sense of humor as it seems you brother did as well. I still laugh everytime I think about the time that he was on your show and said that he had been kicked off of several on-line dating services, that was just toooo funny.

    I do not personally know you Don, although I watch you in the morining when ever I can and I enjoy your insight and humor, keep a bind on it man, remember the good times that you had with Fred, that is what I do. I am smiling now thinking of my Mom and how she always seemed to get me out of one fix or another.

    thinking of you,

    thanks for your fun look at how life is /you were always great to watch on your brothers show

    September 8, 2011 | Unregistered Commenteral

    So sorry for your loss. I loved it when Fred was on your show...I shared his sense of humor. I think a show with re-runs of his calls would be great in the future. It would give us all a chance to chuckle at Fred's outlook on life.

    Dear Imus,
    When the Presidential speech came on last night, all I could think of was your brother, Fred. When it became apparent Obama wasn't going to
    resign, we changed the channel in honor of Fred.
    My husband records your programs, and we watch them together on the weekends. I always looked forward to Fred's commentary, he was funny in a
    down to earth way and probably much smarter than most people realized. I'm sure you are still missing him and maybe thinking about him last night like we were.
    Take Care,
    Barb

    I met Fred twice. Once in Santa Fe and once in NY.
    He was a kind, warm, gentle man.
    My condolences to the Imus family.

    September 10, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGerry

    All these warm condolences. I can't stop reading them. How great it would be if Imus would compile for us the interviews with Fred. I missed too many of them, am especially wishing I could hear the cricket one and the cantaloupe one.

    Fred Imus was a piece of God's handiwork. An entertaining and gentle man. For years while driving to work, I listened to Imus In The Morning on the radio. On September 11, 2001, I was listening when the planes hit the World Trade Center. In the harrowing months that followed, it seemed that we would never laugh again. But then Fred would call in and I would find myself laughing out loud in the car while driving alone. Even staying in the car after I arrived at work just to hear Fred. His tales of women, dogs and horses and his trailer were always something to take our minds off the world situation. He will be remembered with great fondness as a good human being. God Bless Fred.

    Dear Mr. Imus: I have been a loyal listener since the 70's. My wife and I went away on August 6 and it wasn't until today's show when you mentioned Fred that I realized he passed away. I am truly sorry for your loss. It was always evident how much you loved each other. Your by-play with him was hilarious but what always struck me was the bond between you. Please accept my sincerest condolences to you and your family. May he rest in peace at your ranch. John

    I hope you know how important you and your family are to the many nameless, faceless watchers and listeners out in the beautiful rolling plains and palateaus of Kansas. You bring a distant world to our homes that we otherwise wouldn't know anything about. I thank you for bringing Fred into our homes, so that we could listen and learn from this world weary cowboy whose outlook on life was very different from ours,. We shall miss him terribly. You and your brother are both good men and for that I thank you. Much sympathy is sent to you and your family and to the many friends who loved Fred so very much. God bless you all.

    I loved listening to Fred when he was on the show, I thought he was funny, and thought what a fun neighbor he would be. We all have to die, but as the song goes-THE BEST THAT YOU CAN HOPE FOR IS TO DIE IN YOUR SLEEP, the world is a better place for having Fred Imus in it, and the whole Imus family, thank you for all the great work you do. Toughts and prayers for your family.

    I waited.... I read... I listened... I cried... And I wanted to share my thoughts, too, But I waited.... I felt kind of silly and so confused. Why does the passing of Fred, a man I never met, affect me so? I am still sad. I'm 54 yrs old and yeah, I'd like to make it to 69, too.... But it was still too damn soon. I loved Fred... I love Fred... I felt like I knew him, just as I do IMUS. I grew up hard and there is a spiritual recognition that sometimes happens. A hard life makes some people stupid, But it makes some people wise. I will forever miss Fred, a very wise man, indeed.
    PS: My fantasy of getting stuck in the door of Fred's trailer and him "pushing" me out is the best! Do you think they have trailers in Heaven? : )

    I would like to express my deepest condolences to the entire Imus family and friends. I have been listening to the Imus in the Morning show since its syndication reached my vicinity in 1993 and I have always looked forward to Fred's appearances. While I can never say that I knew or met Fred, his appearances seemed like a friend was visiting.
    The brotherly bond between Don and Fred was obvious and all brothers should be so lucky to have such a bond.
    Again, my condolences to the entire Imus family and friends.
    Rest peacefully, Fred.

    With Fred's passing ; the worlds a little less funny......RIP Fred.

    September 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterTony Pittore Sr

    I truly enjoyed Fred. He was an honest true man whoi loved his brother very much. He will truly be missed.

    September 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGregory Martin

    Missing you much, Fred. May you rest in peace.

    September 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterPatrick A. Bailey Jr

    To the Imus Family,

    We will all miss the Bondo King of El Paso. Thank you for sharing his life with us.

    September 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGlenn Giles

    Imus and family of Fred,

    We can only imagine the feelings of loss, all of you must feel. Fred was our most favorite of all your guest. He was authenic and you could tell he was this way with both friend and stranger. Fred was the type you could meet while drinking morning coffee and want to stay in conversation till lunch. We never got to meet Fred, but he would be one those of our top 10 people we wished to meet. We are so sorry he has left us. Your show is less bright by one STAR.....

    I was here before somewhere in there adding my condolences on this fine tribute, but I felt compelled to come back and add that my mother had passed away on the same day as your brother, Fred. I wondered later why I had failed to mention it, and now I am wondering why I am back to mention it. Some kind of separation of mind and thought as a way to deal with my own grief perhaps? Who knows? But I did want to come back and say I am back at work and still listening to your show faithfully every day. You and your informative, entertaining guests get me through some rough mornings. It's good to hear you doing well and able to speak of your memories of your brother in a spirit of fondness. (still loving the bit about turning the tv off) Stay well, and keep on keeping on.

    September 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterM Blanchard

    Fred was cool. Even tho I only knew of him as a voice and still photo on the radio show, he came across as being a very llikeable "everyman". He had a great sense of humor. But we all gotta walk that Lonesome Valley...

    September 17, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterScott

    Mr Imus, I've been listening to you since the 70's. By this time it feels as if you are part of the family. So, naturally your loss becomes our loss. Kinky said it best .."life is an accumulation of sorrows" and this especially for loved ones.." when someone you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure". RIP
