If you've read my earlier post, you know that I have an iPhone app that has like 6000 drinks stored on it. So I thought I'd share another recipe! It's called Lava Flow and it is suuuuuper yummilicioussss!!
◆ 4 oz. Light Cream
◆ 3 oz. Pineapple Juice
◆ ½ Banana
◆ ½ oz. Coconut Cream
◆ ½ cup(s) Strawberries
Blend all the ingredients with ice -except strawberries- until smooth. Put the strawberries at the bottom of a parfait glass and add the blended mixture. Serve immediately.
Did any of you hear about the proposal to have STD screenings and treatments in public schools starting in DC? Since DC has the highest rate of HIV infections the city is considering a proposal to have the screenings/treatments without requiring parental consent. I think it's an interesting concept and will be watching if and how it plays out in the school systems there- it could be a viable way to combat STDs that other states might adopt. I mean ignoring the issue that younger teens have STDs is not going to make it go away.
Also a female Sudanese woman was fined but not flogged, as several feared she would be, for wearing pants in public. She has to pay $200 or face jailtime. Two other women were also captured in the raid and were flogged. The journalist said she's not going to pay the fine and is going to take this opportunity to document conditions in prison. I say you go girl.
So Obama gave this huge speech to school kids, a speech I might add filled with hope and encouragement- despite the GOP's insistence that it was some sort of indoctrination campaign. BULLS***. His speech was peppered with his life experiences as a kid and other examples of other kids who triumphed. Basically he was saying- regardless of your circumstances, there is no excuse for not trying, and when you give up on yourself- you give up on your country.
