I read that "Vegans usually gets rain." There's something going on that makes me post more-than-usually-stupid things between 0500 and 1700.
Face *is* a good teacher, no?!
Yep. Maybe that apartment would have been bad for you in one way or another. Whenever I've had some sort of disappointment, something better always popped up right around the corner. I am not kidding. Things like having a minor delay in leaving work and then having avoided being t-boned by a semi in an intersection....
no ... am humbly going to go to the blackboard and write on the blackboard 1000 times ....
Thou shall not utilize a post to setup another post which was supposed to be funny when someone could be insulted.
Is my punishment severe enough? Me not know. Got any chalk?
Morning everyone. May everyonesâ day be wonderful. Me be at the blackboard or greenboard today and tomorrow. Am being punished for trying to make a funny which was not funny. I knew I should have left my humor in that hole in the backyard. My error, I dug up humor to only have to go write about my lack of humor 1000 times.
Was it half-over when the Germans put Schrödinger's Cat in the box?
There's water in the air in Phoenix? Who knew?
Speaking of things meteorological and in terms of degrees (at least probabilistically), check out this little true-life ditty:
Yesterday, as the family was preparing for dinner, we had a large pot filled with near-boiling water and ears of freshly-shucked corn. At this point, Mrs. Jetsome announced that it was time to walk our five dogs.
My daughter wanted to leave the stove burner on, on low, while we were away from the house, arguing that that way the corn would be done by the time we got back from our short walk.
I pointed up the danger of having a pot of boiling anything on the stove unattended, ever, and especially in a seismic zone where a large earthquake could strike at any time.
She pointed out that the Great East Japan Earthquake of 2011 was a once-every-1200-year event and was unlikely to recur anytime soon, so it would probably be cool to leave the pot alone on the lit stove for a few minutes.
I pointed out to her that there is no predicting when an earthquake will strike, and that one could happen "tomorrow."
We had a 5.4 magnitude tremblor near our area today that was enough to tumble items from store shelves at a retail outlet I happened to be checking out of at the time.
I resisted the urge to rub her nose in it when I came home today. Mostly.
Should I buy a lotto ticket now? Take out a second policy?
You can’t trust Germans. Dey ist der Master Race, you know. Sort of like cats, only more irritating.
And good morning, morning, hello sunshine, wake up, Ash. Yes, it’s only dog food in the bowl, but it beats peas and arugula, which is what the dragons got. Off we go to Petsmart for crickets, gerbil-nibble, and dog-gravy, which comes in odd varieties such as “Grilled flavors with chicken and sauce.”
Oh, crap. That was supposed to be 1700-0500. NBIB ahoulda been NBIA. *sigh*
I hope I’m not being too forward. Would like to offer a suggestion. Let’s take all unpleasant and uncomfortable feelings and stuff them in my extra fridge w/Dlvis. Sorta like Pandora’s Box, y’know? Crowbar will guard it so no one will go in there looking for a slice of leftover pizza or anything.
That way, we can go into celebrating July 4th unfettered by stuff. (Our civic ed group is going to have a booth at the city park. We’ll pass out patriotic-themed toys for kids and fans with information concerning the presidential candidates’ positions *and* flyers addressing the tax implications of 0bamacare heh heh heh.)
I feel better already.
Wow, I’m so glad you were careful!!!
You take the high road.
I love saying “I told you so.” It’s a character flaw. We don’t leave the crockpot, the dehumidifier, or anything extra on when we leave the house because I’m afraid of potential electrical fires that will injure/kill our animals if we crack up the car and can’t get back. Fortunately, Mr. Sg is of the same mind.
Pat ate the leftover pizza, but at least he didn’t eat the crickets. I refilled my hummingbird feeders. I probably should have watered the gardens this morning. Too late now ... I’ll do it in the evening.
Wow. I don’t leave pots boiling, either, but earthquakes don’t often cross my mind.
I do need to cook some corn this afternoon, though.
There is that!
You’ll get more rain than we will, for sure.
You betcha! Whenever I am tempted to feel sorry for myself, I think of what our dear Monkey Face has to contend with every day just to function. The Velveteen Rabbit is alive and well :-) Thank God His mercies are new every morning and His faithfulness is as the dew. Oh, how I need Him just to breathe.
Nothing closes here. It’s a 24 hour town and everyone wants to make a buck. Even Walmart.
It will. I’m a firm believer that when one door closes, another opens. Life is good.
The walk to Walmart was cool this morning, before the sky was even getting light. I always manage to get there when the shelves are bare and stocking is rampant. However, it’s pretty light on customers, and that’s what I like.
On the way home, the bus driver got lost. He was supposed to make a right turn at the 7/11 and he went right past it. He was already late, and had to cross the freeway to turn around, then make a left turn.
He hit the dip at the bottom of the hill just before my stop, and I was already in the aisle, heading for the door. Almost knocked me on my sit-upon!
I seem to be overwatering. One of the watermelons rotted on the vine and one on the same vine got end blossom rot, so it’s likely no watermelons this year (I calciumated the tomato area but didn’t do anywhere else.)
Great to hear that Pat didn’t eat the crickets!
There were some really big black birds in the south yard today. Crows or ravens? Maybe that’s where the strawberries are going. As long as they ingest bugs, too, am willing to share produce. How do you train them to finish one item instead of taking a little bit of many items?
Finally figured out how to make a really good salsa that’s simple (6-7 ingredients unless forgetting something which is probable) so we bought extra sweet onions to make a lot of it and freeze it unless there are too many tomatoes in which case we should stew and can them.
There are days when some of us get out of bed on the wrong side. Things just hit us seemingly out of nowhere and lay us out flat. Words are misread and intentions are inferred that do not exist. I am learning that a simple “I’m sorry, please forgive me” back channel is usually sufficient. Stop punishing yourself, please. It reminds me too much of convent school.
Just a reminder from those closest to Our Lord Jesus while he lived on Earth:
Colossians 3:13 Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
And be sweet one toward another and affectionate, and be forgiving one another, just as God in The Messiah has forgiven us. Aramaic Bible in Plain English (©2010)
And from little old me: And don’t forget to forgive yourself. We all make mistakes. Have a blessed day. :-)
4 minutes per cob on high.
Make sure you cut higher than the tapered part at the end, so that the cob squeezes out easily.
How to Prepare Fresh Corn on the Cob Without Those Pesky Corn Silks...
The bus driver got lost. See why I prefer subways?
I like your humor. It’s funny! LOL!
So funny, in fact you could almost be related to me. ;o]
We can’t stuff our feelings. I mean, we’re family, and whatever affects one of us, affects all of us. So we laugh and cry together, and celebrate and mourn together, and that’s how we have bonded over the years.
It's a catharsis that ranks consistently on my Top Ten list.
I have a really autentico salsa recipe.
Maria’s Famous Salsa recipe
5 yellow chiles
1 white onion
1 bunch cilantro
1 can whole or diced tomatoes
salt to taste
garlic powder to taste
Boil chiles in water for approximately 30 minutes. Place in blender (in two parts) and puree:
chiles, with stems removed
1/2 bunch cilantro
sal and garlic powder
Pour into bowl. Add remaining onion, chopped, and cilantro, chopped. Chop avcados and add to mixture.
Serve with tortilla chips.
Happy Quatro de Julio!
I thought I was the only one who read the Velveteen Rabbit!
Since I have had over 25 years to learn to deal with what I have, I think I’ve finally managed. There is no way I can ‘splain how angry I was when I realized the limitations I was faced with for the first time in my life.
Now, I realize God had a reason for allowing me to have such an insidious disease, and it wasn’t for me to have a constant pity party. There are many people who, while not having CFIDS, have still found themselves with health problems that I have helped them deal with, in one way or another. Some just need someone to talk to. So I do what Heavenly Father wants me to do. Simple!
CFIDS has given me more courage than I ever thought I would have.
Tom says the really big black birds are ravens. They studied local bird life in detail for Envirothon, and sure enough, there was a question on the wildlife test about crows vs. ravens!
You could try netting. DP never picks the berries from his bushes, anyway, so I figure we’re just doing a public service for the local avian community by letting them eat.
May I add to that?
Forgive yourself FIRST! Once the hard part is out of the way, forgiving others is a piece of pie!
Forgiveness is so awesome that I find myself forgiving people before they even hurt me. Much easier that way!
No Subways here, unless you want a sammich...
I would rather have a vehicle of my own, but that doesn’t seem to be in God’s plan for me right now.
I dunno. I see a lot of storms come in on the radar, then [Poof!] gone when they enter the metro area.
Andy Griffith passed away.
That’s amazing! But 20 minutes for five ears ... I’ll give it a try for one, though.
We see them on the RADAR, and they disappear before they ever cross Mojave County. I think Wickenburg stops them. ;o]
That rain on the radar over Mohave rarely hits the ground. Here in Maricopa, too. Just makes things muggy, but it can bring the temperature down.
I will have to check his bio, but I ran across a music CD that he did, and it sounds as if he were classically trained to sing.
He was a talent, and that’s no mistake.
Rain that doesn’t hit the ground is called “virga” and we see a lot of it here. Or don’t see it, as it were.
Zon makes a pico that sounds a lot like that recipe. Minus the avocado and chiles and with more lime and jalapenos.
Hey...it’s Maria’s recipe! LOL!
I’m sure lime makes it better, but the avacados are what I like. Chiles and jalapenos make it “Mexican,” but the milder the peppers, the better I like the flavor.
Zon is most likely an excellent cook. She can fix any recipe any way she wants to with my blessing! (Kindred spirits, so-to-speak!)
I’m making the Chickpea Dish With Noodles for a family at church. The gentleman has ALS and the lady works full-time and there are college-age sons at home, but the sons must have jobs or something, because the church sent an email out asking for meals.
Bill is going to take Sally and Pat to see “Brave” later this afternoon. I’ll give him extra money to pick up some Chinese takeout on the way home.
You are so generous!
Bill needs to drag his siblings along every chance you get!
He will soon be on his own.
Bill is doing a service to the family. I don’t want to leave Pat and Sally unsupervised, and I can’t go to the movie with them. Tomorrow he’ll put on his marvelous Eagle Scout uniform and march in the parade with James, Pat, and Vlad (and Pack 198 and Pack 214 and whoever else shows up). Then he gets the evening off. I imagine he and his friends will do something involving fireworks, hopefully under competent adult supervision.
Trial by fire is a guaranteed recipe for bonding success, although nobody thinks about it at the time. It’s all about your loved ones having your back in a firefight or whatever challenges you’re experiencing. We all seem confident in the knowledge that we are so blessed—isn’t it terrific to be so wealthy?
(Take lots of piccies for me, please!)
Holy cow! I didn’t know there was such a thing as Tannerite! (As usual, enrichment is abundant here on the UT.) I used to do machine leg presses to blow off steam, and when I was really grouchy I’d have one or two big guys stand on top of the stacks.
Perhaps you might want to consider an alternative if you need target practice but want to be quiet. You can make your own blowgun with pvc tubing that can give you hours of enjoyable target practice. Just a suggestion. (I *love* target practice!)
Will copy and paste your recipe—thank you very much!
My “loved ones” are here, on the Undead Thread. I would apologize for my family, but they aren’t worth it. The UT has been with me through all my trials, and there is no way I will dis them. The Undeadders are my LIFE!!!
