The view of Snowmageddon from my apt window

I woke up today to find that Snowmageddon actually hit and paralyzed much of the Northeast. Yesterdays blizzard dumped more than 20" snow throughout the day and night. I wish I can have a snow day today (like my assistant Audrea) but there are tons of post-Christmas Boy Butter orders that need to go out. I must trudge to my office because the show must go on!

Christmas Day with the McGoverns

Celebrating Christmas is always a nice affair when it is with my lovely in laws in Holmdel NJ. Today we huddled around the living room next to the tree and exchanged gifts and pleasantries, it was beautiful. We all got what we wanted and enjoyed the best gift of all, giving. Here are a few photos of the McGoverns, Hamilns and their teeny tiny little Jewish boy, me.

Brendan just got some liquor called St. Brendan's
(this will totally reinforce my mother's belief that gentiles are drunks)
Uh oh, Bren with some more liquor ; )
Sister and Brother in law, Jack and Eva Hamlin filled with Xmas joy.
My parents in law Barbara and Terry opening up their presents.
(I got her a Bonsai Tree & a scarf and Terry got a new iPod nano)

And last but not least, I got a couple cool gifts too ; )

Report: Transplant may have cured man of AIDS

Dr. says "it's an interesting proof-of-concept that with pretty extraordinary measures a patient could be cured of HIV." 
Read Original Jpost Article here. 

By ASSOCIATED PRESS 12/16/2010 18:53

A very unusual blood transplant appears to have cured an American man living in Berlin of infection with the AIDS virus, but doctors say the approach is not practical for wide use.

The man, who is in his 40s, had a blood stem cell transplant in 2007 to treat leukemia. His donor not only was a good blood match but also had a gene mutation that confers natural resistance to HIV.

Now, three years later, the recipient shows no signs of leukemia or HIV infection, according to a report in the journal Blood.

"It's an interesting proof-of-concept that with pretty extraordinary measures a patient could be cured of HIV," but it is far too risky to become standard therapy even if matched donors could be found, said Dr. Michael Saag of the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

He is past chairman of the HIV Medicine Association, an organization of doctors who specialize in treating AIDS.

Transplants of bone marrow — or, more commonly these days, of blood stem cells — are done to treat cancer, and their risks in healthy people is unknown. It involves destroying the person's native immune system with powerful drugs and radiation, then replacing it with donor cells to grow a new immune system. Mortality from the procedure or its complications can be 5 percent or more, Saag said.

"We can't really apply this particular approach to healthy individuals because the risk is just too high," especially when drugs can keep HIV in check in most cases, Saag said. Unless someone with HIV also had cancer, a transplant would not likely be considered, he said.

When the Berlin man's case first surfaced two years ago, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said the procedure was too expensive and risky to be practical as a cure but that it might give more clues to using gene therapy or other methods to achieve the same result.

NASA: Launched in 1977 Voyager 1 nearing edge of solar system

Spacecraft is exploring a region of space where solar wind slows abruptly and crashes into the thin gas between stars. Click to see original Jpost article:
  LOS ANGELES — NASA's long-running Voyager 1 spacecraft is barreling its way toward the edge of the solar system. 
         Since 2004, the unmanned probe has been exploring a region of space where solar wind — a stream of charged particles spewing from the sun at 1 million miles (1.6 million kilometers) per hour — slows abruptly and crashes into the thin gas between stars. NASA said Monday that recent readings show the average outward speed of the solar wind has slowed to zero, meaning the spacecraft is nearing ever closer to the solar system's edge to a boundary known as the heliopause. "It's telling us the heliopause is not too far ahead," said project scientist Edward Stone of the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
           Scientists estimate it will take another four years before Voyager 1 completely exits the solar system and enters interstellar space. The latest milestone occurred in June when scientists noticed the solar wind speed matched the spacecraft's. Just as wind velocity on Earth can vary, the team took measurements for several more months to make sure there were no changes."We knew this was going to happen. The question was when," Stone said. The Voyager results will be presented Tuesday at the American Geophysical Union meeting in San Francisco.   
          Launched in 1977, the nuclear-powered Voyager 1 and its twin Voyager 2 toured Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune, then kept going in different directions. Voyager 1 veered north while Voyager 2 headed south. Hurtling at 38,000 mph (61,150 kph), Voyager 1 is 10.8 billion miles (17.3 billion kilometers) from the sun. Voyager 2 is traveling slower at 35,000 mph (56,300 kph) and is 8.8 billion miles (14.1 billion kilometers) from the sun.
        When Voyager 1 finally leaves the solar system, scientists expect to see a telltale change in the wind. Interstellar wind is slower, colder and denser than solar wind.

WTF! Obama: "I'm gonna let Bill Clinton be president again while I go to a Christmas party."

Sex is Fun - 2010 Holiday Buyer's Guide, featuring Boy Butter Original

Wet & Slippery

Boy Butter Personal Lubricant

Dear Santa,
This year has truly been a year of self-exploration.  And by this I mean masturbation.  Lots and lots of masturbation.  Really…a lot of it.  I mean at least two times a day on work days.  So, it is with this in mind that I ask you for my Holiday Buyer’s Guide Pick-of-the-Year: Boy Butter Personal Lubricant.

Now Santa, I understand you’re probably thinking – that Gay Rick is such a f$%&#*g sell-out; Boy Butter is his freakin’ sponsor on the Sex is Fun podcast.  But Santa, everyone knows my favorite anal sex lubes; this is my masturbation lube.  I want to use this to pull one out before watching Matt Lauer on the Today Show and to squirt on the wall behind me after Chelsea Lately.  

This stuff stays slick when I’m choking the chicken.  As you probably [creepily] know, I like to jack off for an hour at a time.  Reapplication is rare.  When I’m getting a hand job, I hate it when my partner needs to stop in order to reapply lube.  In order to change the world, I want you to give this to every masturbating man out there.  If I were Oprah, I’d give a bottle of this to the 300 screaming soccer moms in my studio audience so they could give world-class stroke jobs.

You’re probably wondering if this stuff is going to be safe with my sex toys.  You know what, Santa?  Boy Butter can be used with silicone, rubber and glass sex toys.  All this stuff will do is aid the process of cramming something up my ass!
This coconut oil-based lubricant is blended with an organic silicone ingredient that is often used in massage oils and hair conditioners.  As I’m sure you’re aware, when I’m a decent boy, I use conditioners to jack off my partners in the shower.  If you were to bring me numerous bottles of Boy Butter, I’d use that instead in order to give hand jobs while lying in my bed post drunken-debauchery.  Then I’d always be on the Nice List.
As you probably know from your stalker-like watching of the world’s population, most of the silicone lubes that I like stain my sheets.  I’m pretty sure you can find stains all over my bed from the activities that put me on your Naughty List.  If Rudolph were to buck-kick bottles of Boy Butter down the chimney clogging the flume, my computer chair would be stain-free.  I would only need to throw down a hand-towel to catch my jizz instead of the full-size, plush, jumbo-towel that protects the chair from my lube and seed.
Post-coitus my room reeks of sex – nasty, piggy, upside-down, face-in-the-pillow, screaming-so-loud-the-neighbors-two-floors-up-can hear, toe-curling sex.  Let’s be honest – jizz and butt-sex have some pretty obvious odors.  And to be even more honest, that’s all I want to smell.  Not some glycerin-filled lube.  Boy Butter is odorless which is why your pudgy, little hands need to wrap up 30 bottles to put under my XXX-mas tree.
I do indeed remember that this is an oil-based lubricant and should not be used with latex condoms.  As your fat-ass is probably also aware of, I am a HIV educator.  This stuff will wear down latex.  It should only be used for masturbation or if I’m having sex with a fluid-bonded partner.

So Santa, bring me some Boy Butter Personal Lubricant.  If you’re good, I may even give you a handy.

Gay Rick
P.S. Please don’t worry about me thinking about Mrs. Claus’ cookies.  I’m gay

Heroic Woman Dies: Haifa Police chief Ahuva Tomer laid to rest

Thousands of mourners attended Monday the funeral of Brigadier General Ahuva Tomer, the highest ranking woman officer in the Israel Police, who died earlier in the day after succumbing to critical injuries sustained in the huge Carmel forest fire last week.
Tomer, who headed the Haifa Police Department, was critically injured on Thursday driving behind a bus full of prison guards that burned up in the flames.

Top government officials attended the funeral held at the military cemetery in Haifa, including Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch (Yisrael Beiteinu) and Police Commissioner David Cohen.
"You, Ahuva, our solid rock, only the forces of nature could match you," Cohen said. "Your internal spark died down in the flames that left us all grief-stricken."
Earlier, President Shimon Peres said after Tomer's death that "she had an extraordinary personality, a rare combination of a mother and a commander. When her vehicle touched the flames she looked from the outside upon us. This was a moment that none of us will forget, the moment before her death, the height of her valor… "
"That fire annihilated so much, and with Ahuva it has now taken the best of the best," Peres said.
Deputy Commander Tomer is considered to be one of the best-known and highest-ranking officers in the northern region. She made history in 1997 when she was appointed police commander in Nahariya, and again in 2009 when she was appointed commander of the Haifa station, the largest in Israel.
Tomer is highly respected by her fellow officers and is known for maintaining good relations with the media. Officers that have worked with her describe her as dedicated and professional, and that although she advanced the case of women in the police force, she never used her own status as a woman as political leverage. She is survived by her partner Danni Rosen.

Boy Butter churns it out for SAGE at the annual Holiday Party for Kids and Seniors

The 25th annual Toys for Tots party, which is now called the Holiday Gifts for Kids & Seniors Party was a blast last night. We go every year and everyone who is anyone in the Gay world of NYC attends. I liken it to the Gay prom without the limos, dancing and the horrible corsages but has a really fun open bar all night and a digital photo booth which streamed photos of everyone on big screens throughout the party. The event is used to collect toys for needy kids and donations for the elderly a la SAGE, (Services for the Gay Elderly). So you must either bring a toy or a donation to SAGE, and this year SAGE set up a table and if you donated $50 or more you would be entered to win a whole case of 24 full sized Boy Butter products : )

Happy Hanukkah from Boy Butter!

What is Hanukkah?
Hanukkah is a Jewish holiday celebrated for eight days and nights. It starts on the 25th of the Jewish month of Kislev, which coincides with late November-late December on the secular calendar. In Hebrew, the word “hanukkah” means “dedication.” The name reminds us that this holiday commemorates the re-dedication of the holy Temple in Jerusalem following the Jewish victory over the Syrian-Greeks in 165 B.C.E.
Once the Maccabees had regained control they returned to the Temple in Jerusalem. By this time it had been spiritually defiled by being used for the worship of foreign gods and also by practices such as sacrificing swine. Jewish troops were determined to purify the Temple by burning ritual oil in the Temple’s menorah for eight days. But to their dismay, they discovered that there was only one day's worth of oil left in the Temple. They lit the menorah anyway and to their surprise the small amount of oil lasted the full eight days.
This is the miracle of the Hanukkah oil that is celebrated every year when Jews light a special menorah known as a hanukkiyah for eight days. One candle is lit on the first night of Hanukkah, two on the second, and so on, until eight candles are lit. You can learn more about the hanukkiyah in the article: What Is a Hanukkiyah?
