Some say the expression, “March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb” began during the early settlement of the United States……
Still, the origin of the March Lion & Lamb can be traced even further back, to ancient times and those who watched the stars.
You see March begins as the Constellation Leo is crossing toward the meridian. Leo is the Lion. As Leo marches away, the Constellation Aries begins to rise toward the end of the month. Aries is the ram: What many lambs will become someday!
Our local weather reporters are going crazy because, for some reason, water is falling from the sky!!!

Chris Christie didn’t say this… “There’s an old Italian saying: you f— up once, you lose two teeth.”…but he could have! Governor Christie finds himself in a little mess right now jokingly called, Bridge-gate.
It’s a little scandal involving political pay back. We’ll have to see what the subpoenas uncover and just how many on Mr. Christie’s staff plead the 5th. The governor himself has pleaded the Sergeant Schultz defense, (“I know nut-thing!!!”) Meanwhile…while Christie awaits the fate of his staff lying comfortably under the bus…the bossman makes news again, because he’s in the news (??) I know, it makes no sense. But what does??? Let me try to explain. The New Republic ran a piece detailing the alleged scandal and included a photoshop of Christie looking a lot like Tony Soprano.
Where’s my cannoli?
Then The Blaze
asks whether the photo of Christie is…..wait for it…..raaaaacist!!!! Thus a new controversy is born! I don’t know. I’m writing this post to get all youse Uppityites to chime in, (including the blog mistress herself!) Is it racist? Is it offensive to Italian-Americans?? My guess is it wasn’t offensive to Chris Christie, he probably liked the comparison! What say youse?(Youse
is Jersey-talk for you…in case youse guys didn’t know. Wait, was that racist?)

I know the historic, best evah, SOTU speech is old news now. But it lives on in infamy thanks to this viral photo of our gaffilicious VP Joe Biden.
What would we do without Joe? He was put on the ticket back in 2008 to give Barry some foreign policy creds. Instead, he’s turned into a punchline.
Don’t get me wrong. I actually like Joe Biden. At least he’s real….well aside from the botox, teeth caps, hair plugs and whatever else he’s had implanted (I really don’t want to know.) When Obama and Biden appear together it’s like watching an old Rowan & Martin skit…..except unlike our prezzie straight man, Dan Rowan wasn’t a cold, arrogant…I should probably be more careful, [waves to NSA]…Dan Rowan was actually likeable.
So we should be thankful for Old Joe, he’s kinda kept us sane. Hey, if Jimmy Carter had teamed up with Biden instead of Mondale, maybe that whole malaise thing would never have happened!
These sweaters aren’t working for me……maybe if I had a funny sidekick?…..
So raise a glass (or two) to Vice President Joseph Biden!

Wasn’t it just yesterday we were ringing in 2013? Maybe it’s me, but it really does seem like time flies, even when you’re not having fun!
So time to think about those New Year’s Resolutions! On second thought, maybe we should think about whether we fulfilled LAST YEAR’S resolutions! Toooo depressing….I know what it’s time for…….
It’s time for the Year in Review stories!
Miley Cyrus’s MTV Video Music Awards performance. The launch of “Lean In.” Apologies from Paula Deen and Lance Armstrong. Walter White’s exit and the entrance of the Netflix series “House of Cards.” What do they all have in common? More Americans say these pop culture moments were more forgettable than memorable.
What do you think? Is that list accurate? Complete? What were your most forgettable moments of 2013….if you can remember
