After over a decade spicing up the eating habits of diners around the world, Paul C.P. McIlhenny, the chief executive of Tabasco sauce has died at his New Orleans home of a heart attack.The 68-year-old was chairman of the board of the McIlhenny Co. the family-owned company that has made the world-famous hot sauce from Louisiana´s Avery Island since 1868. Known for his sense of humor, McIlhenny became the company´s president in 1998 - the sixth family member to hold that title - and oversaw the expansion of Tabasco sauce to over 165 countries.

I watched a documentary on Tabasco recently and as a capsicum afficionado for many years , had no idea of the process and the time involved in this wonderful product. My friends and family buy me hot sauce as the standard gift- which I really appreciate. However, if I could only have one brand , it would be Tabasco( and all of its new versions). Second to that would be Frank´s. This is after trying and enjoying hundreds of brands and looking forward to hundreds more.

In the 1960´s Mom called it "liquid cuss word". She would dump it down our throats immediately after offending language was heard.
I still hate the stuff. It was the only thing in the military MRE that I would not eat.

Tabasco was the spice that made many a can of C-Rats palatable to us grunts who had to eat in the field in RVN.

It was really cool..you could write to McIlhenny Company, and they would send you a small bottle of Tabasco. Forty years later, they are still my go-to for Hot sauce.

On a 40th birthday trip my wife and I took to New Orleans a few years ago, we took a side-trip and visited the Tabasco factory on Avery Island.

I still remember that wonderful smell of the fermenting peppers as we drove up.

I have a bottle at home and a bottle at work all the time. Love Tabasco sauce!!!

RIP, good sir.

Our tables are graced by Crystal, also from Louisiana, and by Valentina, from Mexico. Both are delicious and inexpensive, available at Walmart. The former is great on beans, eggs, greens, and such, and the latter, with its slightly smoky flavor, is magnificent on fried chicken.

Sad news. My prayers are with Mr. McIlhenny and his family.

Tabasco - the first, last and only word in pepper sauce. Three years of aging in oaken barrels gives the stuff a flavor and character nothing else can touch.

I´ve always heard that chiles are good for the heart (one of the reasons I love hot and spicy foods). It must have been something else in his diet which caused cardiac problems.

Condolences to the family.

That said, Tabasco and like products violate one of my cardinal tenets: It should not hurt to eat.

YMMV [or, "I recognize your right to be wrong"].

It´s not pain, #17 - it´s uplift. Sort of like those aboriginal tribesman who submitted to all sorts of ordeals to attain a sense of spiritual transcendence.

Wasserman Schultz: Politics Didn’t
Factor into Obama Keystone
Pipeline Delay
Mediaite, by Evan McMurry    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/21/2014 2:49:40 AM     Post Reply
DNC Chair and Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) told Meet the Press’ David Gregory Sunday morning that President Barack Obama’s latest delay in the approval of the proposed Keystone Pipeline was not a political decision meant to animate members of the Democratic base ahead of the 2014 midterms. “As a member of Congress who represents hundreds of thousands of people in south Florida, I want to make sure the right decision is arrived at and that the president makes that decision carefully and doesn’t factor politics into his decision, which I don’t think he is,” Wasserman Schultz said.

Drought -- and neighbors --
press Las Vegas to conserve water

LAS VEGAS — Deep beneath Lake Mead, a 23-foot-tall tunnel-boring machine grinds through stubborn bedrock in a billion-dollar effort to make sure water continues flowing to this thirsty resort city. For six years, the Southern Nevada Water Authority has been building an intake straw below the reservoir´s two existing pipes. Due for completion in fall 2015, critics say it may not provide a long-term solution. An ongoing drought and the Colorado River´s stunted flow have shrunk Lake Mead to its lowest level in generations. The reservoir, which supplies 90% of Las Vegas´ water, is ebbing as though a plug had been

In an op-ed published in the Boston Globe on Easter Sunday and posted on the State Department website, Secretary of State John Kerry recalled his days as an altar boy and pointed out that he is “the first Catholic Secretary of State in 33 years.” Alexander Haig, who served as secretary of state to President Ronald Reagan from January 1981 to July 1982, was also a Catholic. Last month, I traveled to Rome with President Obama, where I was honored to meet His Holiness Pope Francis,” said Kerry. “As an altar boy six decades ago, I never imagined that I

car crashes into church

Posted By: JoniTx- 4/21/2014 2:22:58 AM     Post Reply
(Video) A car plowed into a Fort Myers church filled with 200 people celebrating Easter on Sunday night, injuring 21. Fort Myers police responded to the chaotic scene shortly before 8 p.m. at the Second Haitian Baptist Church on 3660 Central Ave., Lt. Victor Medico said. When officers arrived, church members were using car jacks to try to lift the vehicle off churchgoers who were trapped underneath. Mary Briggs, spokeswoman for Lee Memorial Health System, said 18 people were taken to Lee County hospitals. Ten of the injured were taken to Lee Memorial Hospital, one of which was discharged late Sunday.

A man was charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery in a Friday shooting that left a 40-year-old man in the Brainerd neighborhood with six gunshot wounds. Deontae C. Jones, 18, was held on $1 million bail after appearing in Cook County bond court Sunday afternoon. Prosecutors said Jones approached a man who was outside his residence on the 9300 block of S. May St., checking to see if his recycling bin was full when Jones approached the man and fired at him. The victim began running away and fell to the ground, said Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Naheda

The first family attended Easter services Sunday at the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church, a Northwest Washington congregation that welcomed the Obamas on the eve of the president’s first inauguration. The Obamas’ motorcade left the White House shortly before 10 a.m. (Snip) The motorcade pulled up to the church, about four miles away, just after 10. The first family arrived through a tented entrance and sat in the second pew in a mostly, but not completely filled church, joining an estimated 250 others. The president wore a light khaki suit. The first lady was wearing a cream dress and sweater. Daughters

Clearwater doctor unveils secrets of Shroud

CLEARWATER — In the mid-1970s, Wayne Phillips saw a television program telling the story of the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. At first, he was miffed. Years of Catholic schooling — Jesuit High School in Tampa and Notre Dame University — and he had never known about this artifact? (He would later learn that it was a delicate subject at the Vatican.) A doctor, he has a curious mind. A mind shaped by logic and by science. But as a Catholic, he understands some beliefs are still a mystery. He

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s
