Happy Pi Day! Today's a celebration of mathematics, and we figure it's the perfect time to explore the math of baking. There are a multitude of recipes and other food-related records in the Archives, especially from the Presidential libraries. We feature many of them in "Eating with Uncle Sam: Recipes and Historical Bites from the National Archives," but can't decide which to make first: Mamie Eisenhower's deep dish apple pie or the Bush family's pecan pie?

Appears to me the voting for the top 6 great First Ladies was a little rigged--and was apparently asked to people who know little about history--Martha Washington was a very good First Lady--she backed her husband but in a quiet lady of the day fashion--and to back run-around George she had to be Wonderful. Mamie Eisenhower was another First Lady who was a gentle kind person whom most of Americans were very fond. Barbara and Laura Bush were Great First Ladies and not once did they embarrass the American People, Betty Ford was an outstanding First Lady and Pat Nixon suffered the most and said the least- Mrs. Carter was a very gentile lady and a true Southerner who knew what her role was as First Lady.
Who's classier, Laura Bush or Michelle Obama? I vote for Laura, but that's because Jackie Kennedy, Mamie Eisenhower, Lady Bird Johnson, Pat Nixon and of course Nancy Reagan weren't choices in the poll I found. Who's your fave First Lady?
Today is Tuesday, Jan. 21, the 21st day of 2014. There are 344 days left in the year. Today's Highlight in History: On Jan. 21, 1954, the first atomic submarine, the USS Nautilus, was launched at Groton (GRAH'-tuhn), Conn., as First Lady Mamie Eisenhower christened the vessel with the traditional bottle of champagne broken against the bow. (However, the Nautilus did not make its first nuclear-powered run until nearly a year later.) On this date: In 1648, Margaret Brent went before the Maryland colonial assembly to seek two votes in that body, one for herself as a landowner, the other as the legal representative of the absent Lord Baltimore; the assembly turned her down. In 1793, during the French Revolution, King Louis XVI, condemned for treason, was executed on the guillotine. In 1861, Jefferson Davis of Mississippi and four other Southerners whose states had seceded from the Union resigned from the U.S. Senate. In 1908, New York City's Board of Aldermen passed an ordinance prohibiting women from smoking ...
Reading Mrs Kennedy and Me. Mamie Eisenhower was petty for treating Jackie that way during the tour.

In 1952, women outnumbered men in the electorate, so of course there were "I Like Ike" clip-on earrings.

rense.com Confirmed - Obama Is Zbigniew Brzezinski Puppet Commentary By Webster Tarpley 3-21-8 Any lingering doubts about Obama's status as an abject puppet of Zbigniew Brzezinski and the Rockefeller Trilateral Commission ended this morning when the withered mummy of imperialism himself appeared on MSNBC's Morning Joe* to campaign for Obama, urged on by his own moronic daughter, Mika Brzezinski, an Obama groupie and sycophant. Zbigniew, a low-level Polish aristocrat whose life has been devoted to hatred for Russia, lauded Obama for his 2002 speech opposing the Iraq war, saying that he himself was the source of Obama's arguments back then - thus confirming Obama's long-term status as his puppet, which probably began in 1981-1983, when Obama was a student at Columbia University, and Zbig was directing the anti-Russian institute. The aging revanchist showed all the misogynism of his szachta origins with a scurrilous attack on Sen. Clinton as a mere housewife, a Mamie Eisenhower running against charismatic a ...
The GOP only exists in wistful grainy films of Ike and Mamie Eisenhower wishing America a Merry Christmas in the 1950's.
Think about our past First Ladies over just the past decades: Eleanor Roosevelt - Completely redefined the role of First Lady and made huge advances in civil rights. Bess Truman - Extremely private, with only one public interview Mamie Eisenhower -known to be a gracious hostess to foreign dignitaries and someone who was so fiscally responsible, she actually clipped coupons for the White House staff to use for groceries! Jackie Kennedy - Probably the individual with the most class in a social setting (even to the point of ignoring her husband's escapades). She had such charisma that even Nikita Khrushchev said that he would "like to shake her hand first" when asked to shake JFK's hand. Lady Bird Johnson - her description of impact and top First Lady was best described by Gerald Ford, a political adversary to her husband: One of America's great First Ladies, she claimed her own place in the hearts and history of the American people. In councils of power or in homes of the poor, she made government human w . ...

60% of our National budget goes to the Military for the Dept. of Defense, Veteran's Affairs, and our Nuclear Weapons programs. "Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense a THEFT from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed." A quote from Dwight D. Eisenhower. He was the last Republican president who had a lick of sense, and he sure knew what he was talking about when it came to funding our military ideology and the harm it would eventually do. Read some of his speeches and you will see a genius at work, and the thoughts of a great man who cared more about his country than any poilitical machine.

Featuring Katy Miner as Jackie Kennedy, Mary Ryan as First Lady aide Mary Gallagher, Shayna Raichilson-Zadok as aide Evelyn Lincoln, OVER TEXAS centers upon a strange dream Ms. Gallagher has as Air Force One is flying into Dallas on November 22nd, 1963. WHERE'S MAMIE features two new talents to the Buffalo scene, Katie McMahon as Mamie Eisenhower and Jackie Davis as the famed African-American opera singer, Marian Anderson. Both take a strange journey back into time to visit then General Ike Eisenhower (portrayed by John Calvin) and his chauffer/mistress. OLIE is the comic relief of FLS as Margaret Truman (portrayed by Mary Ryan) fights both musical pitch and her mother's, Bess Truman (portrayed by John Calvin), annoying cough and candy wrapper.

Christmas in the nation’s capital has evolved through the years. President George Washington held a Christmas party for Congress, starting with an early morning fox hunt. First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln raised money to provide Christmas dinners for wounded Civil War soldiers. Benjamin Harrison set up the first Christmas tree in the White House in 1889. Teddy Roosevelt played Santa Claus for schoolchildren. Calvin “Silent Cal” Coolidge gave a Christmas speech on national radio. It was only 49 words long. Franklin Roosevelt did not hesitate to praise Christ expressly by name in his Christmas speeches to the country. Mamie Eisenhower personally wrapped gifts for each of over 500 White House staff. Ronald Reagan brought back nativity scenes that Jimmy Carter had discontinued
Mamie Eisenhower loved the game. FDR's right-hand man, Harry Hopkins, was crazy about it.

i usually keep my posting light, no political or religious commentary mainly music and sports my passions. All being said I must say this. What does it mean when a person says that Michelle Obama does not look like a First Lady. HM. Like Barbara Bush, Lauren Bush, Hillary Clinton, Mamie Eisenhower, Pat Nixon. Jackie Kennedy Elenor Roosevelt. Truly I don't care if you're a Republican or Democrat and my opinion of you is not based on your affiliation but please.
Remember Melissa Leo’s f-bomb when she won the Oscar? I bet that landed her the part of Mamie Eisenhower. Filthy, filthy. Ike loved it.

sheila side Mamie Eisenhower(1896-1979) First Lady Mamie Doud Eisenhower was the wife of President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Her popularity came from her beautiful clothes, her pride in her home and her husband, and her million dollar fudge recipe. Relationship: 9th Cousin

Yesterday's Picture Trivia Answer; Can't fool you guys. This is Mamie Eisenhower. Her Husband DDR was The President when I was born! EEE GAD!!
I have kept a running tab on our present administration since it took office. please take a moment to read this if you're seriously considering a vote for our current President to stay four more years in our White House: President Barack Hussein Obama is the President who has done these things: •Apply for college aid as a foreign student, then deny he was a foreigner. There is documented proof of this. •Have a social security number from a state where he has never lived. Also documented •To go on 17 lavish vacations, including date nights and Wednesday evening White House parties for his friends paid for by the taxpayer. •To preside over a cut to the credit-rating of the United States of America. No, it wasn’t Bush’s fault. •To have 22 personal servants at taxpayer expense for his wife. To see why this is an issue, consider that it is unprecendented by former First Ladies. Mamie Eisenhower had one aid, Jacquelin Kennedy one, Roseline Carter one, Barbara Bush one, Laura Bush one. The onl ...
We have only had four great women in the White House, Mamie Eisenhower; Jackie Kennedy; Hilary Clinton and now Michelle Obama
So I guess Michelle Obama has like 25 secretaries and it's coming out of we the citizens' taxes. and I guess when Dwight Eisenhower was president. Mamie Eisenhower, Dwight's wife had only one secretary and paid her out of her own pocket. 1953-1961. 2009-2013. Wdf f'n happened?
Who was the first spouse to give a speech like we saw at these nominating conventions? I can envision Eleanor Roosevelt but not Bess Truman or Mamie Eisenhower. Counting on my history teacher friends to come up with this answer.
We cannot continue to overwhelm our Country with massive spending, skyrocketing debt & unlimited welfare entitlements...Annual Deficit over $1.1Trillion each of past 4 years, accrued $16Trillion Nat'L Debt (increase of $6Trillion...more than any term in history), Food Stamps increased from 25 million to an astounding 47 million recipients, increased Americans drawing welfare to over 30%, unemployment continues over 8% for the longest period since the Great Depression (over 11% if those no longer looking are included), nearly 50% of citizens currently pay 'no' tax while only 10% pay for 70% income tax collected, wife Michelle insists on having '22' personal staff @ a cost more than $2million annually (Mamie Eisenhower had maybe '2' & she paid for them?), lavish & frequent vacations paid by us?, increased borrowing from China, Japan & other Countries to pay for these astronomically growing entitlement plans is not sustainable...our AAA Credit rating has already been downgraded which further negatively impa ...

Vice presidents wives re Lso beautiful. Dr. Biden reticulate, felt so sorry for janna Ryan, she was scared to death, as would I be. We've come a long way from Mamie Eisenhower, haven't we?
Thoughts on Michelle Obaba's performance last night: The world for First Ladies, and all women, has changed so much in the last 60 years or so. Can you imagine Bess Truman or Mamie Eisenhower giving a major speech at a National Convention? Or even Jackie Kennedy, Ladie Bird Johnson, Pat Nixon, Mrs. Carter ? Think about it.
Haven't seen that series. Is she awesome? She can be sandwiched between Lady Bird Johnson & Mamie Eisenhower, if so...
I'd still like to hear from Mamie Eisenhower
So give this a thought about how our world has changed. Picture Bess Truman or Mamie Eisenhower speaking so eloquently about their husbands as did Michelle Obama and Ann Romney.
Mamie Eisenhower never spoke so movingly.
Lady Bird Johnson on Drums and Mamie Eisenhower on Bass. That's a solid rhythm section.
For Teri Orr, watching the GOP Convention stirred memories of giving roses to Pat Nixon and Mamie Eisenhower in 1956.
Here's what that hump Brit Hume had to say about Ann Romney's speech: "“I think that was the single most effective political speech I’ve ever heard given by a political wife. I think a lot of women would look at her — particularly mothers, married women — and find her utterly admirable and utterly credible.” Apparently Hump, er, Hume has never heard Michelle Obama speak. Or Hilary Clinton. Or Eleanor Roosevelt. Or even Lady Bird Johnson. Maybe he meant the single most effective speech by a Republican wife. No, that can't be right, because that means he was ignoring Pat Nixon, Mamie Eisenhower, and Barbara Bush. Mamie gave some real barn-burners back in the day.
On Juan Williams remark... Would Ann Romney be the 1st First Lady since Mamie Eisenhower to have never worked a job?
Romney has chosen a Proverbs 31 wife...Hopefully she'll join other famous First Ladies in the White House: Eleanor Roosevelt, Bess Truman, Mamie Eisenhower, Jackie Kennedy, Barbara & Laura Bush...Women that have stood by their men and stood for other causes.
Hard 2 picture Pat Nixon or Mamie Eisenhower/otherGOP wives making a speech like 2nite's. Was it progress or a lecture from Mad Men? Dunno.
Okay, just looked on line at some pictures of Ann Romney. She doesn't look like she did on camera! She looks like a real person, one I could relate to not a plasticized Stepford wife like they made her look for her speech. What makes them think that this is what we expect a 63 year old woman to look like? Honestly, I really miss Mamie Eisenhower and Bess Truman and especially Eleanore Roosevelt!
I think and are this generation's Dwight & Mamie Eisenhower.
There is a case for either giving First Lady formal policy role or scaling back her job on Bess Truman, Mamie Eisenhower model.

Back to Fort Dodge after a busy day. Headed out at 9:00 and went to drive by the birth home of Mamie Eisenhower, shopped And had lunch at Van Hemerts Dutch Oven Bakery in Boone, Iowa. Thanks to Terri for reserving our table and taking such good care of us. We ended up adding some Dutch Letters and other pastries to our purchase. Then off for a train ride aboard the Boone and Scenic Railroad. We went across the 156 foot tall Bass Point Creek High Bridge and that was a thrill especially for Bobbie (pictures to follow)! We then went to Story City and enjoyed a ride on the antique carousel. What fun that was! A trip to the swinging bridge and supper at Pizza Ranch followed. We are now ready for some dice and card paying and some much needed rest. Off early again tomorrow. PS - Gary you were right - driving the 16 passenger van is a breeze. I haven't run into anything.yet:)

On this day in history... On August 3, 1958, the U.S. nuclear submarine Nautilus accomplishes the first undersea voyage to the geographic North Pole. The world's first nuclear submarine, the Nautilus dived at Point Barrow, Alaska, and traveled nearly 1,000 miles under the Arctic ice cap to reach the top of the world. It then steamed on to Iceland, pioneering a new and shorter route from the Pacific to the Atlantic and Europe. The USS Nautilus was constructed under the direction of U.S. Navy Captain Hyman G. Rickover, a brilliant Russian-born engineer who joined the U.S. atomic program in 1946. In 1947, he was put in charge of the navy's nuclear-propulsion program and began work on an atomic submarine. Regarded as a fanatic by his detractors, Rickover succeeded in developing and delivering the world's first nuclear submarine years ahead of schedule. In 1952, the Nautilus' keel was laid by President Harry S. Truman, and on January 21, 1954, First Lady Mamie Eisenhower broke a bottle of champagne across its ...
