November Squeals! - diemaster - 11-01-2009 05:54 AM

Well, crap. I can't get any of the links I have to work. Play list looks good any way. Beautiful sunrise over the lake this morning. Oliver, Stormy and me took a nice stroll down to the lake at day break. Sally being a bit moody this morning wasn't interrested in going out so she stayed curled up on the sofa. The neighbors horse was at fence so I picked up Oliver and walked over to rub her nose. I couldn't do that with any of the other kitties they would have freaked. I just wish he would learn to stay out of stuff so we could keep him inside. But, what makes him so lovable is why he can't stay in, he has to explore everything. The kitchen door is closed now and he's curled up with Sally on the sofa.

Damn,
Bad news 'bout Norton! Usta see him alot around Santa Cruz in the early 80s. I remember some place in the back of Kings Village Shopping Center in Scotts Valley where he played 2 or 3 times a month. Surely now he's jammin' with the greats somewhere that the "Sun Comes In The Mornin'!
Dat's a request should any DJs be lookin'. Later...JDub

Howdy, JDub, long time no see. Or should that be long Thaime? Big Grin

Check out the music forum on these here squeals. I posted some vids I found on youtube of a Norton show from the 80's. Lots of fun. Might bring back some good memories.

RE: Fresh Squeals! - Arden - 11-01-2009 07:42 AM

that's a seriously cute pic


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Monica - 11-01-2009 07:47 AM

Movies were fun. The only movie I could find based on Bill's description still wasn't the one he remembered. Mine was exactly the one I remembered. And it was less hokey than I thought it would be because it really was sorta artistically done.

But we had a lot of fun and laughs together. We cuddled up on the couch under a chenille throw with all the kitties and drank strong coffee with dark chocolate melted into it and munched cinnamon graham crackers. Felt like being kids again. LOL

sounds like you had a delightful evening, (despite the wrong movie for Bill, too bad Sad)
we had a nice night. As predicted, hubby put on a dumb movie, (the original Wolfman), which I ignored while making dinner (and food to take to Sleepy John's bday party later today) Later, we watched a movie I picked out, Pan's Labyrinth.
Well done movie, interesting, but very sad. We only had 4 (FOUR!) trick or treaters all night long!! An all time low. The Trick or Treater's parents recognized The Man in Black, though, so that was cool.


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Monica - 11-01-2009 08:11 AM

I had heard interviews on Fresh Air when it came out and it sounded pretty good. Might have to check that out. One of the local Blockbuster stores is closing. I might stop by and see if they are selling their movies and see if they have it.

So many people have taken the fun out of Halloween. Children aren't allowed to be children much anymore, I guess.

Whatcha make for the party?


RE: Fresh Squeals! - webhog - 11-01-2009 11:32 PM

I tried to move all of today's posts to this new Fresh Squeals so I could archive October. ooops. I left a bunch of today's posts orphaned in the october thread.... oh well.

RE: Fresh Squeals! - tongue_thaied - 11-02-2009 08:26 AM

Moarnin' everybody...thanks JDub, fellow Bangkokian, for the news about Norton. It's odd, I was just looking at Norton's site a couple of days ago before I knew today from your post that he had died. At that time, they didn't list his death. A kinda spooky coincidence. I met him on Maui once, where he was playing a benefit concert with Pat Simmons (of the Doobie Brothers and who lives on Maui) for Seabury Hall, a private high school on Haleakala Volcano. Pat had at least one child who attended there and he was very active in the school as a parent.

Lots of fireworks here this evening in celebration of Loi Kratong. Let's float a loi kratong boat on a body of water today in Norton's memory.

Peace...over and out.

Later edit: As of this moment, Norton's site still doesn't list his death, at least that I could find. Wikipedia, however, does.


RE: Fresh Squeals! - clockdoctor - 11-02-2009 08:26 AM

Sorry, I should have at least said Good Morning 1st.


Pearlington Fundraiser - Brother Ralphie - 11-02-2009 09:12 AM

Thought this was worth mentioning again!

One of the fundraisers we are doing for the Pearlington, Mississippi trip is a Jambalaya dinner on Saturday November 7th at 6PM. It will be held at Felton Presbyterian Church’s Taylor Hall, 6090 Highway 9 in Felton.

There will be a slide show, chronicling the previous trips and work that has been done, and there will be musical entertainment from a couple of local singer/songwriters, Elisabeth Carlisle, and a young man named Jared Fujishin…ALSO, The Presbytones (that’s my acapella quartet) will have a few songs to contribute!

There is no cover charge, strictly donations. Smile

For all you local swine, come on out and support a good cause and have some good food and fun! Smile

I may even be debuting my new blues song “Goin’ Back To Pearlington”, which Vick helped and inspired me to write!

Be there or be square! Big Grin

Some other ways to contribute to this latest trip to help those who lost everything to hurricane Katrina: Donate using the PayPal account at this blog site http://www.ca2ms.blogspot.com/
For those of you who are actually lucky enough to still have a credit card…with a balance…just click where it says donate…and tell them it’s for Ralphie!

OR

Send a check to:

Felton Presbyterian Church
Attn: Brittany Overbeck
6090 Highway 9
Felton, CA 95018

And put Ralphie/Pearlington in the memo line…and if your address is not on your check, include that, so they can send you a receipt (remember, tax-deductible!)

Thanks!

Friend sent this to me. Thought I's share. Smile

Last night my sister and I were sitting in the den and I said to her, "I
never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine and
fluids from a bottle to keep me alive. That would be no quality of life
at all, If that ever happens, just pull the plug."
So she got up, unplugged the computer, and threw out my wine. Big Grin

RE: Fresh Squeals! - tongue_thaied - 11-03-2009 05:29 AM

Hi Kim Smile Yeah, we're all gonna miss Norton...a LOT. Taken from us too early, but it was his time to go.

My trip to CA was successful, although not without a couple of glitches. I spent two weeks shuttling on local buses from a Motel 6 to my storage unit, where I spent 6 or 7 hours every day sorting through my 50-odd boxes. It was exhausting every day, physically and emotionally, trying to decide what I would save and discard from the past 40 years of my life. But I finally narrowed it down to 5 boxes of my stuff I really wanted to save, and then closed my storage unit for good. Caught a taxi to the post office. Learned there that the p.o. had discontinued 'slow boat' shipping two years ago, and the cheapest they could send my boxes to Bangkok would be around $1000. Went back to the motel room and called FedEx and UPS, and they were the same price or higher. Dishearted that I wouldn't be able to go to LA to see my sister as I would have to spend that time figuring out how I was going to get my things to Thailand, I opened the Yellow Pages. I called a shipper listed there, and he promised to get my stuff to Bangkok on consolidation for around $200. The next day, he picked me and my boxes up at the motel and drove me to a bus stop so I could get back to the Bay Area. I had already missed my flight to LA the previous day, so I headed to Oakland, where I stayed with an old friend. The next day, I caught BART to SFO and flew back to Bangkok. I've been in touch with the shipper, Jeff, by email and he informed me that my boxes will arrive in Bangkok at the end of Nov/beginning of Dec. Jeff really saved me, and he's such a nice guy, too. He shared with me in his truck that he has terminal cancer, and he told me that it gave him a private joy to help a teacher in Thailand. I'm putting in a request that he be given special consideration at the Pearly Gates. On second thought, maybe he was sent here from there for a reason, and now it's just his time to return.

I'm having fun with my new Magic Mouse...one of the newest gizmos from the Geniuses at Apple. I can scroll with my fingers dancing on the top of the wireless (Bluetooth) mouse. It's so wonderful to not have to mess with a tangled USB cable emanating from my keyboard. Big Grin

It sure is going to take some time to get used to it, though. I had to download special (free) software to work all the special "touch technology" that is built into this thing of beauty. and sometimes I don't realize that I'm scrolling down. Blush

Here's what the puppy looks like:

yes.


no corn or zuckes (but why not?). but lots of onions, celery, garlic, okra, andoioulle, etc. this is a seafood gumbo. the grouper n shrimp heads boiled (with some homemade chicken broth) is the soup base. gonna add shrimp, crab, and oysters...maybe some of the fish. Season to taste w/salt, pepper, cayene, worcestershire, hot sauc;, file' at the end. served over rice that the take-out-chinese from last night so generously supplied.
roux is done, waiting on the broth to concentrate a bit. then assembly begins. will refrigerate overnight. It is always better the next day!

Just learned a trick with the computer to increase and decrease the size of the text you are looking at on a web page.
Hold the CTRL and SHIFT keys with your left hand. Tap the + key. This will INCREASE the size of the page. Easier to read.
To DECREASE the size hold the CTRL and the - key (no shift).

Not really. We stayed home yesterday because Bill's ankle was so sore he could hardly walk on it when he got up. Called in and got an appointment with the doc. He couldn't drive himself coz it was his left ankle and his truck is a standard. Got a brace and an anti-inflammatory and he's doing fine today. altho he's not doing everything the doc told him, which were the same things I told him Thursday night when it started getting bad.

When you have a messed up body, you go to a doctor. When you have mental issues, you go to a therapist. Here's his list of what I need to do before I meet with him Tuesday - 1.) List of what's going well; 2.) Get rest; 3.) go to "happy places"; 4.) Work on grave.

Well I'm doing pretty well - raked out mom's grave and put flowers by it (I was just there an hour ago), I slept in with dog curled up to me (he doesn't snore as much so all is well); Sat by the railroad tracks as awsome trains went by, did that for awhile, didn't help, went to pub, I was a mess, my friend Deni went with me shopping at K-Mart and bought some neat stuff - she put a smile on my face. So, I'm doing good on the list I guess. (K-Mart is a "happy place"????)

Good morning, Mz. A. Wonderful, lovely Norton song to start this Sunday morning. Hope you had a nice evening.


RE: Fresh Squeals! - tongue_thaied - 11-08-2009 07:06 AM

Aloha from Bangkok, pigs! Mornin', Jake, Arden darlin', Mon, Kevin and any other lurkers. Winding it up here on Sunday evening before climbing under the covers. Had a fine time with JDub on Friday night. A Beatles tribute band plays in an Irish pub here every Friday evening, and they were phenomenal last Friday. Thanks to the guy who plays George Harrison, they are able to play and do mighty fine justice to the full range of the Beatles' songs, including the psychedelic era.

Well, I'm still a bit tired from Friday night, so I'll bid adieu. Have a real fine Sunday there! Smile

G'morning, Kev. Glad you have some current flowing this morning, even if it is a loud generator. Can't miss Sunday morning PIG, now can you?

Actually running on the extension cord to my neighbor's garage. I try to not use the generator when the 'hood is quiet. Respect kind of thing. everyone now knows I shut it down around 8:00 at night. I also don't like to use neighbor's electric so much. He won't except money as he feels moral issues are involved, but he loves my cooking!!!!!
(Will accept food for electric!) LOL

Morning, Monica, Gary, Kevin, and Jake


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Nivek - 11-08-2009 07:40 AM

What is very cool about all this (trying to put a positive spin on it) is that I am learning how much I abused electric and how one can become very minimalistic and still survive quite nicely. I grow weary at times but still, I HAVE some electric when most don't. I HAVE a refrigerator, I HAVE heat, I HAVE so much. I am blessed. (OH, and I have fresh eggs and coffee, I think I'll make a nice cheese, green pepper and mushroom omolet....(sp intentional!))


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Monica - 11-08-2009 07:47 AM

Good to see neighbors working together to help each other out, Kev. It is amazing how much of what we have we can positively live without.

Sorry only one day off, Jake. Hope you enjoy it immensely.

Trying to get chores done early here today. Bill has to turn our water off in a little while. Our lawn spigot is leaking. I pray we don't have to dig up the plumbing, but I'm sure we will.

How's Bill's ankle doing today?


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Monica - 11-08-2009 07:59 AM

Seems to be doing well this morning. The once a day anti-inflammatory seems to be working well. He's making me crazy at the moment looking for little tiny pieces of electronics. He can't find them and is making so much noise looking. I always hate this because it reminds me of when my dad couldn't find something. Even tho Bill would NEVER do this, I'm sitting on edge waiting for the explosion. Some old reflexes never die.


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Arden - 11-08-2009 08:02 AM

Thanks for that, Jake... just what I was thinking! [Image: biggrin.gif]

Good morning all! My day is looking like seasonal maintenance. Leaves need to be mulched, and window screens cleaned and put away. Dinner tonight... I haven't yet made my weekly menu; still need to assess the contents of the fridge and freezer. We ate out last night, so I'll have some grilled salmon with cancun sauce for lunch. The cancun sauce is what makes the dish. The chef would not share the recipe, but I have a pretty good idea what it's made of -- a cream sauce with enchilada-like seasonings. This may have to work this into this week's menu.

I once went six months without electricity or hot water. The water was heated by propane, which was also used to run the stove. Fortunately, the stove was a combo-fuel, the other fuel being kerosene. It was winter in Maine, and we had to run the kerosene side for heat anyway. On one of the back burners, I'd keep one of those great, big lobster pots full of water for baths and cleaning. The other back burner usually had a pot of soup simmering -- "back-burner soup," I called it. That, with a thick slice of homemade, whole-grain bread -- yummmm. Being without electricity was good for the body, really. We got ourselves into a nature rhythm; rising with the sun, and going to sleep soon after it set.

Kevin, your kind and generous neighbor, no doubt, recognizes the value of friendship... and your cooking. [Image: wink.gif] Hope the gears soon grid smoothly.


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Monica - 11-08-2009 08:31 AM

Morning, Star. What a luxury that would be to rise and sleep according to a natural cycle. Sounds like you did quite well.


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Arden - 11-08-2009 08:35 AM

good morning, CA, always good to hear from you!!
I so admire your meal planning ... I have a hard time thinking more than a few days ahead, at best
I made white bean soup and salad last night ... will prolly have it again tonight, Big Grin
the cancun sauce I've seen hereabouts served w/ fish is generally tomatillo based - but it doesn't sound like yours is?
Yup, when I lived in Big Sur, the frig and stove were propane, the heat was a woodstove. We DID use electric for light, but when the power went out several times a year, ya just do without, and it's no biggie. I agree, being w/o electricty does contribute to you being more in tune w/ natural rthythms


RE: Fresh Squeals! - starshyyn - 11-08-2009 08:35 AM

Good morning Monica. Yes, it was a great way of life. LOL -- I was a little bit sad when we got the electricity back.

RE: Fresh Squeals! - Monica - 11-08-2009 08:51 AM

I'm trying to plan ahead more. Making a pot of 15 beans today with potatoes, cole slaw and cornbread. That will definitely last for a few days. Then a couple of days worth of burritos. Not sure after that coz I'm still not very good at it yet, either.

Lunches this week will be different salads with home made dressings and bread.

You'll have to share that recipe with us.

Mix of baby greens and spinach. Some days will be a fresh ginger dressing with sliced almonds, tiny rice noodles, fresh clementine sections and dried cranberries. Other days will be grape tomatoes, olives, onions with bleu cheese. Gonna roast some beets and turnips for another with kernels of corn and a lemon balsamic vinaigrette. Nothing too original, just nutritious.

You even get used to luke warm showers. J is taking one now. Man this woman is super as a support - she hasn't complained once and has been there for me - a whole different dimension of her is revealed. Not using the "L" word, but we are moving our friendship to a new and higher level, and, considering my past history, having just one dedicated woman in my life is refreshing. I like it. I'm moving on - it was very therapudic to spend yesterday cleaning like a banshee - the bathroom sparkles, (bing! - insert white star burst thing they do on the TV commercials!!!), kitchen cupboards were emptied out and cloroxed and threw out all the old boxes of triskets and oatmeal, etc. and rearranged (GASP, let's put the teas and coffees and sugar all in the same area!). Yeah, life is good. Still haven't really grieved yet. That ought to be something!!! But life is good and I'm a gitten along. And the PIG is playing loud and I'm a dancin' (In my had) Thanks all for your wonderful comments and support. I can't wait to see what kind of Kevin emerges.... How fun is this????? LOL

that's when I would say, "Honey, I'm having an omelet for dinner. If that doesn't sound appealing to you, you can make yourself a peanut butter sandwich, or there's a can of soup in the cupboard." I spent far too many years subjugating my own food desires in favor of trying to cater to everyone else's taste. Now, I make what I want to eat - if others want it too, fantastic. If not, they are free to cook for themselves.


RE: Fresh Squeals! - starshyyn - 11-08-2009 09:08 AM

I have found that deciding WHAT to have for dinner is half of the battle. We're more likely to have a healthy, balanced meal if I know in advance what we're having.

I keep my meal planning very simple. If it wasn't, it would never get done. I have a stack of pre-printed, blank forms on hand -- 2 columns, days of the week on the left, and food available and what needs to be purchased on the right. On the left, I start by listing a few basic meal suggestions -- chicken on Monday, vegetarian on Wednesday, and fish on Friday. Then I/we embellish and pair with those ideas whatever veggies we have on hand. I hold on to old menus for inspiration and to make sure we have variety. My focus lately, is to serve leafy greens 3 or 4 times a week. The family turned up their noses at first, but now, they seem to be liking it. I've always eaten lots of veggies, but with a little planning, I'm able to bring much healthier meals to the table. Because I don't work with recipes (it's more like, hmm... what food combination would taste good?), we rarely have the same meal twice in a two-week period.

I also freeze a lot. Leftovers get labeled and frozen. Those individual servings are included in my lunches the following weeks. In addition to the frozen leftovers, I pack 2 cups of raw veggies to be microwaved at work.

I never get complaints, and truthfully, most of the time I'm not in the mood to eat in the evening so I end up fixing something just for him, or he does throw something simple together himself without complaint a couple times a week if I'm too tired to deal with it.

Your planning sounds very organized and definitely workable.

I think you already know the answer to that question. This makes all of her books I will have read now. I do like her writing, just not her endings sometimes.

Not sure about the Time Traveler's Wife as a movie, I rarely pay attention to what's on at the movies anymore. Seems they aren't catering much to our demographic these days.

Bill has expressed an interest in seeing Pirate Radio, tho. So we probably will do that for a date night instead of waiting for the DVD.

RE: Fresh Squeals! - Arden - 11-08-2009 10:11 AM

since there is never anything on TV we want to watch, we got rid of cable, and saved a bunch that way. I signed up for netflix. only $9 a month, unlimited movies.
watch 'em at your own rate, a little or a lot. always something worth watching if that's what you in the mood to do ...

Currently, I'm reading Lamb in Love by Carrie Brown, an author Arden got me stuck on, even tho she does frustrate me at times. LOL

What are you particularly enjoying about your current read, Pete?

Thanks for the tips, I'll check out Kingsolver and Brown on Amazon. I like just about anything to read, but the Time Traveler's Wife is good because I like a good science fiction yarn and I'm also a sucker for a good love story. Just read John Grishom's Inocent Man. Are you anywhere near Ada in Ok.? Now I'm solidly anti death penalty!...Don't know if Arden mentioned it but yesterday was Joni Mitchell's birthday. Yikes, she's 66. I'm feelin' old!...Nice Mark Knopfler, is this from the new one?

RE: Fresh Squeals! - Monica - 11-08-2009 10:28 AM

Ada is more south central, and we're up in the NE south of Tulsa, so not very close to Ada.

I can't believe I overlooked Joni's birthday. She's my number one favorite. I'm feeling pretty old these days, too, Pete. Good thing these things come on gradually, no matter how fast the years seem to scream by now.

I'll have to think of some good, but not too sappy love stories to recommend.

We've never had cable here at all. When they finally began offer it out this way, the phone company also began offering DSL. For us the choice was a no-brainer.

We've been watching a few things here and there on hulu.com or on PBS, but otherwise, Bill keeps busy with his homebrew ham radio projects and I read. Much nicer evenings.

I did love watching the Playing For Change DVD the other night. It was so interesting seeing the process and all the artists. So sad to hear that Roger died, too. His street singing was the genesis of the whole idea. I'm so jealous of you getting to go to their concert next Sunday.

Sounds pretty good.

Watching something usually puts me to sleep. We watched a few older episodes of The Daily Show on hulu last night, and I fell asleep in the middle of the third one. I can usually read for much longer.

Hi Webhog,

I notice that I have to be logged in to see correct posting times (or any changes made to other options, like posts per page). Before the DST change this month, I could see correct posting times as "Guest". Can you change the "Guest" options so that we "lurkers" can see correct posting times, and maybe 50 posts per page, without logging in?

Conservatively, ONE OUT OF EVERY THREE homeless men who is sleeping in a doorway, alley or box in our cities and rural communities has put on a uniform and served this country. On this Veteran's Day, I ask you - do we REALLY honor our Vets?

I just heard a rather upsetting story about a Phoenix-area church which was charged with a zoning violation because they were feeding the homeless in a residential-zoned area of town. Apparently, only areas zoned as "business" zones can have charity dining halls in that town.

How many of these homeless served in the military at one time in their young lives? What a way to slam another door in their faces. Is it any surprise that many of us have a love-hate relationship with our nation? We love the ideals but hate the end result of political compromises.

Compromise in its myriad forms was a sticking point with me when I volunteered for the Obama campaign. Why compromise ideals while giving them lip service? I'm wondering if I should just go back to being a Green and stay that way? Sad

eeehhh, saw it a while back ... great cast, sure, but ... I thought it was pretty stooooopid ...
I watched this one last night ... disappointing. It could have been so much better. Pacing was very slow, and there should have been a whole lot more music in it. Keb Mo was highly amusing in his role, though ...

Don't like it. Nope, don't like it at all...Crying
But, don't mind me. I get upset when anything changes... Just too set in my ways I suppose. Hell, I still do my work with AutoCad R14 and they haven't supported it for years. I call it CaveMan Cad. It's one step above napkinCad.Cool

I don't neeed no sympathy but if ya got some spare goood thoughts, please send 'em to my nieces (my Sister's daughters) cuz this is gonnna be a whopper of a lossss for them.

Night Piggies.

RE: Fresh Squeals! - Cynth The Poet - 11-12-2009 11:55 PM

Oh, Anjil...

You won't take sympathy, so how about some empathy instead? Gotta give you something along with good thoughts. I do know what you mean about it being harder on your nieces. It's gotta be hard on their mom as well.

How about a good old fashioned Irish wake? That's what I want when I go. (Let's hope that somehow this could count as a legally-binding document of my preference...cremation and a wake. Dump my ashes into the Pacific Ocean. I didn't go all the way from Tejas to Cali to get stuffed into a casket with gross chemicals keeping me in a state of suspended animation--without the animation of course.)

Hyper-Localism On Air and Online: The station that has the deepest relationship with the local community, wins. If listeners feel they will miss something by not tuning in to your station, you have the golden ring.

Hyper-Promotion: Advertising works. We recommend it, but we don’t practice it. By being seen everywhere, we not only increase listener interest, we sow seeds with potential local advertisers.

Deep Listener Engagement: Though this involves localism, it goes deeper. Many stations have abandoned costly personalities who were considered “old friends” by listeners for decades. Whether established or fresh on the scene, personalities who are truly engaging and entertaining create better radio.

I agree...donate and cremate and have a memorial that's full of music and food...and, oh yeah, I've hired someone to play bagpipes at my memorial service to guarantee that people cry!


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Cynth The Poet - 11-13-2009 10:33 AM

After hearing Travus mention the Pacific Heights group that is suspected of setting port-o-johns afire, I had to ask myself if this could be prosecuted as terrorism should these well-heeled miscreants get caught and prosecuted. So here is the legally operational definition of "terrorism" courtesy of US Code Title 22, Ch. 38, Para. 2656f(d), Subpara. (2):

Quote:the term “terrorism” means premeditated, politically motivated violence perpetrated against noncombatant targets by subnational groups or clandestine agents

I'd think that this uptight citizens brigade operating in defense of Pacific Heights' property values counts as "clandestine agents" by the very language of this Federal law. Now if only they could be caught and tried for their terrorist actions. Undecided

(As if, I know. There is a separate criminal justice system for the wealthy which involves a stern talking-to and a slap on the wrist.)

how about your week?


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Monica - 11-14-2009 12:05 PM

Bill had the flu a coupla days, so he's working today to make up some time. Otherwise, okay.

What did you see Cleese perform in? I bet that was cool.

Just sent you [Image: pigmail.gif]


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Arden - 11-14-2009 12:19 PM

it was a "talk", sort of an overall view of his life and a retrospective of his career, accompanied by slides and film clips. He talked for over two hours, then did a Q & A at the end. He was very funny, of course, and a bit twisted as well.
The T-shirts for the tour read (on the front) "I saw John Cleese" (on the back) "just before he died"
They also had "Minister of Funny Walks" keychains that had little holographic images of Cleese going through the routine - I would have bought one, had I had any money Smile

haven't inspected the leftovers yet - but thanks so much for thinkin' of me, Ralphie! I'm sure there's some stuff left other than meat. Thanks, indeed, to New Leaf, they are wonderful folks who make some fine food.

B.B. King is coming New Year's Eve. Not going because of the venue and that makes me sad. Missed Pavarotti there, too, not long before he died.

We usually check his DVD's out of the library around the Christmas holidays and listen to them on the weekends since we don't celebrate that particular holiday. It's so much better to listen to him, but when I have had to read his work, I hear his voice the whole time. LOL

you know you don't have to miss anything on NPR, don't you? All their shows are archived, and easy to listen to whenever.
I am always hesitant to say anything even the least bit negative about someone else in public. This American Life is an interesting show, I'm not overly fond of Ira Glass, though ...

I am always hesitant to say anything even the least bit negative about someone else in public. This American Life is an interesting show, I'm not overly fond of Ira Glass, though ...

Yeah, I know. And I do at times, but if I listened to everything I enjoy that's archived, I would never have time to sleep, read, eat, do my chores, go to work. You get the picture.

Monica is right,of course - that stuff's not good for me, and I don't eat it at home ... I was just hopin' to sneak a little taste here ...but, it was not to be - Sherman ate mine, and now he's barely alive, he's not even sure if he'll be able to crawl up the stairs this afternoon ...

Nothing wrong with a little taste now and again. Nothing wrong with that at all, as long as one is strong enough to leave it at that. I think letting yourself have a little taste of things like that now and again can be a good way not to all of a sudden lose it and binge.

RE: Fresh Squeals! - Monica - 11-14-2009 02:54 PM

He's having trouble regulating his sugar now, too, in adapting to the insulin. My mom told me that last week my sister had to revive him because his sugar just suddenly bottomed out. Today, I sent him the link to the intro to Michael Pollan's In Defense of Food, and a video of Pollan speaking about it as UCSB. I asked him to please indulge me by looking at these so we could have a decent discussion about how to eat sensibly without feeling deprived. It's my last ditch effort to convince him and my mother to change how and what they eat.

He's 71 years old and has had to have open heart surgery about 14 years ago. I don't know how much time he thinks he has to turn this around for good. It is terribly scary.

One of the best things about The Healthy Way diet plan is that it's designed to keep blood sugar and natural insulin levels normal...it's very diabetic friendly, and in fact many people with diabetes have been able to cut down on or stop taking insulin after being on this diet and losing the weight they need to lose.

But.....this, or any other diet, only works if you do it and stick to it. You really have to change the way you eat and think of food even beyond the pounds you want or need to lose. It really is a lifestyle change!

Of course, I didn't start taking better care of myself right away after he passed! After all, I'm also a stubborn Italian male who knows everything!

I started this diet...or should I say, changed my lifestyle, when I was 50...because I realized that 69 ain't that far away, and I wanted to make it there and beyond...barring catastrophic illness or accidents, I feel confident I'll make it! Smile

My dad outlived him by one year. He had type 2 diabetes, was taking medicine for it and thought that meant he could eat whatever he wanted and not have to worry. He also was a chain smoker whose daily joy in life was to walk to the convenience store and buy a Big Red and a pack of Salems. (He used to smoke Terrytons for a long time, then for some reason switched to menthols--perhaps to soothe his throat after wrecking it on the other brand.) I loved him, though.

Thing is this: I also have type 2 diabetes but he and I did opposite things when it wasn't controlled: he got thin while I get fat. Must be the Germanic DNA from my mom's side of the family. (I have a really old photo of my dad from around the time he was in the Navy in the early 40s, and he was a beanpole.)

I know what I have to do, but living on the poverty level leaves me with too few options. That comedy bit about "broke food" is my life right now. Can't find the video, though. Sad

Hello there. Wonderfully attractive autumnal brilliance illuminated in every corner this day. Even normally "dark" bars had doors wide open for fresh, fresh air. Doors to the 'Men's' & 'Women's' rooms as well. Nice circulation.

Blessings to yuns all. Hope ya better than well.

Tending bar on a good day today. Football brings'em in. I played the sport well; yet I love to post this poem of James Wright's pen once a year. Tis past October, yet the gist is still salient....

"Autumn Begins in Martins Ferry, Ohio"

In the Shreve High football stadium,
I think of Polacks nursing long beers in Tiltonsville,
And gray faces of Negroes in the blast furnace at Benwood,
And the ruptured night watchman of Wheeling Steel,
Dreaming of heroes.

All the proud fathers are ashamed to go home.
Their women cluck like starved pullets,
Dying for love.

Therefore,
Their sons grow suicidally beautiful
At the beginning of October,
And gallop terribly against each other's bodies.




....playing in the band is better in my book. Looking forward to PSB.

Love westward, and all around our world. paix.

Thanks Arden.

My Sis came home from the hospital 2day. She hasn't eaten in like FOREVER. Actually when they take her blood pressure, they have to use the child size blood pressure cuff...

But she's in goood spirits !!!!!!!!!!

So I am tooooo !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And Cynth, you are one of the funnniest people ever !!!!!!!!

Plus, my dear sweeet Ralphie, thank you for all your attentive genious & kind-hearted love for everyone. Heart


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Monica - 11-15-2009 05:11 AM

Anjil...I am so sorry I was remiss in responding to your earlier post about your sister. I did scroll through a few of the older pages, and should have done it then. It slipped my mind and my only excuse is that my OldHippiesDisease is slowly morphing into OldTimersDisease.

I'm really very sorry for her suffering and the suffering those around her are experiencing. I'm really glad to hear her spirits are good, and that yours are, too. I wish you both many days ahead where you can draw close and say the things to each other that you've always felt and not had the time or felt the urgency to express, to hold each other closer than ever, make each other laugh, draw your heads and cheeks together to whisper words of love. I wish all of this for you and her, and all who love her dearly. [Image: smiliehugs.gif]

RE: Fresh Squeals! - Arden - 11-15-2009 08:30 AM

anyway, I simply overslept, that's all ... poor lil Elvis Bender doesn't know what to do when there is no music for him to play ... music is only programmed through to 6:10 am or so - there is that small cushion, 2 songs, to allow that someone might run 5 - 10 minutes or so late, but after that, Elvis can only play what he's got programmed - which unfortunately, after 6:10 am, is all commercials and filler ...
but, I am here, all is well, everything is fine now


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Arden - 11-15-2009 08:30 AM

Morning, all!

Glad all is well. Hope you enjoyed your little extra sleep.

Morn' Sunshine. Oversleeping happens to all of us every now & then. Glad all is well.

Finally have a Sunday to sit back and relax. Could hit 70 here today.
The REK,Todd Snider,Bruce Robinson show was awsome. Felt bad for REK who constucted the 10 day tour. Todd stole the show. They all took turns playing tunes and when it came to Todd everyone was screaming what they wanted to hear. So all three at the encore played and sang a few of Todd's tunes.

it can't be on a loop ...
they could plan for it to cover further into the hour, but ...
anyway, sorry everyone got so worried,but it was just a very simple thing, my alarm didn't go off, end of story

I can always use more sleep, CA, but starting the day off going at a dead run w/o a shower isn't really worth it ... Smile

it would be a MOST unusual reason to cancel a whole string of tour dates ... that's a lot of $ to pass by, a lot of folks to piss off and inconvenience ... are you SURE the two things are connected?

Funny thing yesterday -
Stopped at my local pub to go over a bus trip we are planning. The local college was having their fund raising "Antiques and Craft Fair" which is huge, plus they were host Division 3 Soccer playoff, which also draws big. Pub just had one waiter and Lizz the bartender. Over 20 people walked in around 12:15. And they just kept coming. Dining room was full, the up top botth area in the bar was full. My friend Denny and I just looked at each other and said "What the hell, it's not like we never worked together before" (Which we did long time ago). So we just got up, grabbed some trays, she seated the dining room, I bussed, we both waited on tables, it all went smooth for the next 3 hours 'til it slowed down. It was fun to work this gig with someone and something I haven't done in years. Like riding a bike. Lizz and the waiter ran the front - they never knew Denny and I had done this before - they're eyes were wide open. Fun.


RE: Fresh Squeals! - diemaster - 11-15-2009 10:04 AM

Topping the tea maker with some green tea. With the wash from English tea it should make an interresting brew...

Bird Song

All I know is something like a bird within her sang (note 1)
All I know she sang a little while and then flew on
Tell me all that you know
I'll show you
Snow and rain

If you hear that same sweet song again, will you know why?
Anyone who sings a tune so sweet is passing by
Laugh in the sunshine
Sing, cry in the dark
Fly through the night

Don't cry now
Don't you cry
Don't you cry any more
La da da da

Sleep in the stars
Don't you cry
Dry your eyes on the wind
La da da da da da

All I know is something like a bird within her sang
All I know she sang a little while and then flew on
Tell me all that you know
I'll show you
Snow and rain

I know he said that but...wow! What a wonderful song. I'd just like to delve into the whole thought processes behind his writing.

Speaking of novels, I'm on the waiting list for this one at the library. Heard an interview with the author about it on a local radio program at our NPR affiliate on Friday.

Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann
http://www.randomhouse.com/catalog/display.pperl?isbn=9781400063734

Sounds incredibly intriguing.

Thanks....never downloaded from itunes. Probably should. Wife goes nuts with all the cd's around but I love reading the liner notes.

Got the remaining leaves from the yard in the garden. they can rot and I'll add some horse s#@t and roto till in the spring. I hate to say it but I guess I am ready for winter. Took 3 days to get rid of leaves. First time I did that in two years because of all the surgery on the foot.

"HEY!"

"Just checking assholes."

Fell for it again when walking out the bar. Tee hee's and laughter abounded upon friends faces as they found a place for their stumblin longnecks when i turned around.

ok...i'll just come back in smart alecks & alices. Fun'in.


How about that pro game? Marquee matchup. Indy laying 2 1/2 at home. Wise guys talking bout the fix with that fourth down effort from the Pats.

I liked the Superchargers in a pickum. So much for my daliances of today.

New Sam Bush sounded swell.

I hope yuns better than well. I bought a Duncan yo-yo last week. Been wanting to be a kid again. Now that I actually bought something I shouldn't.....marbles are coming to mind. Gitting on all fours to shoot is the prerequisite.

Love westward with respect! and admiration. peace.

we have this "Stockings for Soldiers" deal going on for a friend of mine whose son did two tours in Iraq, and is now in Afghanistan. I'm a vet; but regardless of my feelings and efforts at abstaining from catastrophic conflict...Debbie's son deserves support. His platoon, and comrades. Just the last thing on my mind this evening. Feel confident most decent posts of every veterans organization is doing the same.

The bar i tend for tuggers is gonna be open at noon on Thanksgiving. Stop by if'n the neighborhood; Ya more than welcome. Surely.

On holidays, and every day, it sure is nice to have somewhere to go. For many days and nights, this place was my respite.

You don't know how appreciative I am for you all. mo

RE: Fresh Squeals! - Anjil - 11-16-2009 09:52 PM

Oh, thanks for being here KPIG & Squeals. I came home from visiting my Sis this afternooon & when I walked thru my front door, I was greeted by 4 doggies n' good music courtesy of KPIG !!! Made me feel like my house is a happy place.

Cuz my Sister's place sure isn't. And today's the last time I ever get to see her. She can't have any more visitors cuz it hurts her to talk. My Bro's wife n' I went there today just to hold her hand & give her LOVE. But we can't go anymore.

The me i used to be would throw a big tantrum @ being advised to stop visiting. But the subdued me understands. And my Sis has a very devoted, loving husband caring for her. I couldn't even imagine being in his shoes now.

Plus this is a very trying time of year to be losing someone close. (yeah as if there's ever a good time for that.)

But the music is more helpful & soothing than I ever could have imagined. Once again KPIG, thank you !!!!!!!!!!!!!!


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Anjil - 11-16-2009 11:00 PM

Well, forget the stufff I said in my last post cuz I just found out that my Sis wants me there no matter what !!!! She made her wishes known to her husband, so even tho she can't talk anymore, she still wants me & my Bro's wife to come there n' be with her !!!! And ya wanna know what ?

Part of that is cuz I get in happy mode telling her jokes such as the ones you guys gave me to tell her !!!

I know... I'm just living moment 2 moment right now... That's okay.

Sometimes that is the best way to live on the roller coaster of life. But keep the jokes up! Without laughter, life becomes a little dreary. I know that if I didn't keep my sense of humor (my distance from the immediate) I'd be in the closet rocking and crying. Stand strong, do what you got to do. Do that voodoo that you do, oh so well.

Tell stories about Blazing Saddles - it brings out good, funny thoughts. Or Monty Python if she is into it. (Just thoughts IMHO)

An abbey was in financial difficulties, and to increase its income the brothers decide to open a fish and chips business.

One day the abbey door bell rang and one of the brothers went to welcome a customer.

When he opened the door the customer said, "Are you the fish fryer?"

The brother said, "No, I'm the chip monk."

When I was there Monday the last thing she said was "I just hope I get better." I thought that was sad and didn't have much of a reply.

But hearing her speak the truth today was even sadder. I told her "well we're all goin' there. Maybe you'll be with Mom."

She said "Yeah, that's what I'm hoping."

Allow me to second that. No pig. The Winamp links posted previously didn't work for me either (that'll teach me to upgrade to the latest release.) The ando link on the KPIG home page doesn't do anything but open a browser window, diddle back and fourth saying "connecting to media" then stops and says "Ready." I'm ready too, but I got no pork!

I have had the link open for a few hours. It may have crashed after I opened it. It may be that the stream is working but the front end is broken.
If I close it now, it may not re-open again

RE: Fresh Squeals! - steub - 11-20-2009 01:36 AM

I can't say nothing right now, other than some karma might be here at 12:02am with the Wrights.

I have been walking home after bartending lately, but the bartender rode me home after making sure she was all right...frisky fellas needed some air with an arm around their shoulders, and some empathatic, stern words to usher our local brothers down the street.

I have to share this with you. I protest in my own way. Some know. Yet, a friend of mine, Debbie Deaton's son is on his second tour in Afghanistan. Platoon leader now hoping to lead his men well. None of us are perfect.

I have not written for nothing since Mount Union when lauding grapplers, or UPS's "Big Idea" making us look better, and feel good.

"Stockings for Our Soldiers in Afghanistan"

This holiday season the Gold, a tavern located at 5 S. 5th St. in Martins Ferry is participating in a program called "Stockings for Soldiers". They will put together Christmas stockings for SPC Dale Knollinger of Martins Ferry, and his platoon which is a part Charlie Company, 2nd Battalion 508th, Parachute Infantry Regiment, 82nd Airborne Division of the United States Army deployed from Fort Bragg, N. C. since August 2009 and serving in Afghanistan.

For some, this will be their first time away from home; others have been through this before. It can be very discouraging to be away from home at Christmas time. We want to show them that it does not matter what we think of the war itself or whether we should even be in Afghanistan. What matters is that these brave men and women have answered the call to serve our country and we want them to know that there are people back home that support THEM.



We want to send a little Home town Christmas to our soldiers serving in Afghanistan . Each stocking is filled with personal items that are needed, such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, and shampoo. We also put in some snack items, pens, stress balls, music CDs, and anything else we can find to make Christmas special.



We are asking individuals or families to help by sponsoring a stocking for any amount. This will help us to purchase items needed to fill each stocking and help with our postage needs. In addition, donations of items listed above will also be accepted. The deadline is December 6, 2009. Contributions may be mailed to the address listed above, or brought to the bar during regular business hours: M-F 3:00pm to close, Sat. 11:00am to close, or Sun. 12:00pm to close. Anyone needing additional information may call 633-2605.



Thank you for taking time to consider our soldiers on the front lines of the War on Terror.


.............I'm not asking for anything; just sharing what is on my mind. The body of the message was asked for from a gentleman in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. I called him, and asked for permission. He was more than gracious. Hold on..http://www.stockings4soldiers.com/ David Spurell....good dude. Allowed me complete permission to echo his thoughts.

I never do that; but needed to justify a deadline for a friend.

I love being among you, even though not as much lately.

Ask every one of your loved ones not to join the service until we all have to. Every capacity of any service is open if everyone is available.

Cap is tipped westward with respect. The Gold will be manned at Noon on Thanksgiving for anyone that wants a place to go. Yuns, and Everyone welcome. I always think of the truce at the trenches during WWI, and just hope all of us come home, and come together in some semblance of order. We all the same.

bless yuns. aye, Lass! Hugs to all piggies and moehoppers mo

I'll donate to Ralphie's congregation doing yoeman's work in Mississippi. I was in the shower, but heard a sweet, strong voice. I remember Meridian's hotshot pilots, and a segregated downtown where I enjoyed being the only cracker in many joints. Thinking Ralphie's bunch are more south toward the battered coast. Shall find out around tin tonight. I love a missipp pronunciation of ten.

Gotta go open the bar an hour before the big old rivalry game. It's kinda funny bout our clientele: a bunch of diehard buckeye fans, and maybe one even took a class in Columbus.

RE: Fresh Squeals! - Monica - 11-21-2009 12:27 PM

Everyone is going to his brother and SIL's house Thursday, and so are we, but I always prepare our own dinner on Friday so we can have leftovers and enjoy a nice quiet day, just the two of us. I've done that since we were first married. I had never roasted a turkey before then.

All of those songs play over and over in my head quite a bit. Sounds like the concert was very good. Besides Clarence and Mermans, I would have been anticipating seeing Rocky Dawuni, too. Too bad he and Tula and a few of the others weren't there. Still, a pretty cool evening, no?


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Arden - 11-21-2009 12:32 PM

RE: Fresh Squeals! - Monica - 11-21-2009 02:31 PM

I dunno yet. I was supposed to bring turkey when it was going to be at Ma's. I told her that way ahead of time, but the info didn't get passed along to the SIL so she decided she's doing turkey. She thought it would be fine to have two, but I thought it was going to be a waste so I only got one for my house. I am making some bread to take and probably some cranberries, but outside of that, I haven't really decided.

That looks delish! Have you made it before?

The way this whole thing went down with the change and everyone else already deciding what they were bringing before we were even told anything is kinda making us not want to go, but since we have totally opted out of the xmas holiday we feel like we should go to this one. Otherwise, we'd both be staying home.

I was going to go pick up one of my residents and bring her and her little dog here to share our Friday with us because she didn't think her son would be doing anything with her, but he did come through with plans for her.


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Arden - 11-21-2009 02:58 PM

I have not made it before, but it does look both delish, and simple - 2 big pluses in my book. Will sub a little white wine for the milk

I'm glad the resident's son came through for her ...

I'm not big on Thanksgiving for a whole number of reasons,including:

1, it has become the day celebrated primarily for gluttony and excess

2, it is disgustingly "meat-centric," more so than any other holiday. People are absolutely obsessed with "the bird"

3, it is all predicated on absolutely heinous lies, whitwashed BS, certainly not true history


and, I miss my sis
BUT, I will do my best to enjoy it as a special opportunity to excerise "an attitude of gratitude"- though the gods know we ought to cop that attitude EVERY day!!


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Monica - 11-21-2009 03:09 PM

I enjoy it only for the reason that I love to cook and to me this is one of the premier meals of the year. I love most of all to cook for Bill because he appreciates it so much. I might just make eggplant parm to take to the family gathering so at least we won't have to eat a commercially raised bird. That was the whole idea originally behind wanting to take the turkey, at least I knew I could enjoy a good clean bird that was at least humanely raised and harvested (And I do know how you feel about that, too, tho.) And I agree about the whole BS surrounding the history of the holiday, but what are you going to do without ruining the day for the family, ya know?

I wondered if you were going to tweak that recipe a tad. Wine sounds like an excellent idea. I'm thinking that the cream cheese part could be tweaked a bit, too. What do you think would sound good? Who knows I make make this, too, instead of the eggplant.

I know you miss your sis, hon, and I'm so sorry she isn't with you. I wish there was some way to change that. If I had it in my power, I surely would love to. She was always such a sweet and pleasant person to converse with. She had a lovely aura about her that truly lives on with those of us who were fortunate to know her. I miss her and really do think about her often.


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Monica - 11-21-2009 03:16 PM

Oooh! I almost forgot. I tried something fresh out of a friend's garden the other night and it was really yummy. Have you ever had any french sorrel tossed into a green salad? She had me try it while she was cutting some before we went to work coop delivery and then cut me some to bring home with me.


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Arden - 11-21-2009 03:27 PM

I've seen some similiar recipes that had a lot more complicated filling w/ gruyere, cream, etc etc
I kind of like the fact that this recipe is so, so simple - just cream cheese, boom, that's it ... not only will I probably stick w/ the cream cheese, but I'll probably even go with full-fat cream cheese instead of neufchatel ...

unfamiliar w/french sorrel


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Monica - 11-21-2009 03:35 PM

It's technically an herb, I think, but it grows big and leafy. It has a tart bite to it, not bitter...tart. Will be really good tossed in with some baby greens and spinach.

Sorry I've been away for a few...I've gotten hooked on some game/sweepstakes site where most of the games are bogus, but I don't mind it as long as I don't have to pay to play. I really like the pool game--played five games, lost only one--and the mini-golf was fun as well. But there is always the temptation to play with real money. Good thing I don't have any money, or I'd waste it there.

The "free" games demand a lot of time and only pay out in site-related coins. The coins are used in sweepstakes that I doubt I'll ever win. Since I've pretty much lost my inspiration I don't write songs. Who wants me to bring others down, anyway? (I can't write "fake happy" songs, which means I'll never make it as a hit songwriter.)

But I did something productive: I made egg nog from scratch. Since I can't drink booze, I had to use rum extract. But instead of using the liquid eggs from the store, I chose to simply temper some egg yolks and cook the nog on the stove. It just now cooled down enough to enjoy. Yum!!!

Was just talking about eggnog in an alternate universe. I looked through my game folder a few minutes ago, I was a bit to relaxed play any of them. Maybe in the morning.

There is a huge blueberry farm just north of here on the east side of lake Wallenpaupack. Paupack Blueberry Farm. You pick them and wash and freeze and reap the benefits all winter. When I pick them I eat more than i take home. Black snakes like em too so Dot sometimes doesn't go along.

Banana Pancakes
Jack Johnson

Can't you see that it's just raining
Ain't no need to go outside...
But baby, you hardly even notice
When I try to show you this
Song is meant to keep ya
From doing what you're supposed to
Like waking up too early
Maybe we can sleep in
I'll make you banana pancakes
Pretend like it's the weekend now

And we could pretend it all the time
Can't you see that it's just raining
Ain't no need to go outside

But just maybe, laka ukulele
Mommy made a baby
Really don't mind the breakfast
'cause you're my little lady
Lady lady love me
'cause I love to lay here lazy
We could close the curtains
Pretend like there's no world outside

And we could pretend it all the time
Can't you see that it's just raining
Ain't no need to go outside
Ain't no need ain't no need Mmmm MMmmm
Can't you see can't you see
Rain all day
And I don't mind.

The telephone is singing
Ringing it's too early
Don't pick it up
We don't need to we got everything
We need right here
And everything we need is enough
Just so easy
When the whole world fits inside of your arms
Don't really need to pay attention to the alarm
Wake up slow, yeah wake up slow
You hardly even notice
When I try to show you this
Song is meant to keep ya
From doing what your supposed to
Like waking up too early
Maybe we can sleep in
I'll make you banana pancakes
Pretend like it's the weekend now

And we could pretend it all the time
Can't you see that it's just raining
Ain't no need to go outside
Ain't no need, ain't no need
Rain all day and I really really really don't mind
Can't you see can't you see,
You gotta wake up slow


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Monica - 11-22-2009 08:06 AM

Sorry...took a bit to rustle up breakfast. Bill wanted some well-done hash browns. Had those with over easy aigs and toasteses.

Lots of booberries in the freezer. Bill's favorite fruit, so I bought a flat and froze 'em up.

No plain white pancakes here, either. Buckwheat is our favorite. Bananas are good in pancakes, unless someone doesn't warn you they are in there and you just weren't expecting them. I hate when I'm expecting one flavor and get another.


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Arden - 11-22-2009 08:14 AM

He is flyin' in from Singapore for the weekend. Arrives into Philly tues night, getting hotel and when he comes to my work Wed I am off. We are heading up to the lake for the day to meet with Cuz's & family , Thanksgiving Thurs......Colorado/Nebraska Fri(he graduated from CO) Friday night is really special. I got tower seats on the side of the stage for Railroad Earth. Closer than front row. I'll try to take pics to show all. Sat he has a class reunion and Sunday I got extra tickets for my boss & he to go to Philly for some skinnin' of the Skins. He fly's out of Philly to Iowa Monday morn for a few days of meetings and then back to Sing.

Some time ago, we bought some old used shower doors and some thick plate glass shelves from salvage. Bill's out there right now carrying them into the garden to make a cold frame out of one of the boxes so he can plant me some lettuce and spinach for the winter. Gonna plant some garlic in one of the beds for next year, too.

Well, this will be our first foray into trying to grow something besides garlic through the winter. So this is the grand experiment to see if the combo of planting boxes and glass covers will actually work the way we hope they will. Wish us luck. LOL

I just went through all the seeds to dig out the spinach and lettuce. I definitely don't need to purchase more next year. I had no idea how many I still had around from Seeds of Change from the last two years. LOL Gotta find french sorrel, tho. And they do have a few really nice all lettuce mixes out this year. Hmmmm.

Mmmm breakfast, the most important meal of the day. As a kid we made bacon and egg sandwiches....thick bacon, eggs fried in the bacon grease on white bread!

Just had the Healthy Way version...Turkey bacon, poached egg on Ezekial bread.

If you ate it every day, it wouldn't be the Healthy Way, so I make it my once a week (usually Sunday morning) special...and, it tastes just as good as I remember!! Smile

and about a quarter of the fat, salt, cholesterol and calories!!


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Monica - 11-22-2009 10:56 AM

Morning, Ralphie. We're lucky enough to have eggs from our own chickens, I haven't had to buy any eggs in three years. It's been wonderful. Low in cholesterol. too.

Hope you thoroughly enjoyed your brek'ast. Smile

Anything FRESH, eggs, fruit, vegitables, is soooo much better tasting and better for you. We get fresh eggs sometimes from a friend and the difference is quite noticable!

"The big system can be pretty overwhelming. We know that we can’t beat them by competing with them. What we can do is build small systems where we live and work that serve our needs as we define us and not as they ‘re defined for us. The big boys in their shining armor are up there on castle walls hurling their thunderbolts. We’re the ants patiently carrying sand a grain at a time from under the castle wall. We work from the bottom up. The knights up there don’t see the ants and don’t know what we’re doing. They’ll figure it out only when the wall begins to fall. It takes time and quiet persistence. Always remember this: They fight with money and we resist with time, and they’re going to run out of money before we run out of time"

Eggnog ... Real Eggnog!

1 dozen fresh eggs
2 quarts heavy cream (real cream, no additives)
1 pound confectioners sugar
1 quart (4 cups) good irish or rye whiskey*
whole nutmeg for garnish

You'll need a electric mixer (handheld or a Kitchenaid stand mixer), and a couple of bowls, one big and one bigger to make and serve this in).

Separate the eggs. Save the whites for later.
Beat the yolks until light in color
Beat in gradually the 1 lb of sugar
Add very slowly 2 cups of whiskey while beating continuously
Let stand covered one hour to 'cook' the yolk flavor out
Add slowly the rest of the whiskey while beating constantly
Slowly add the 2 quarts of cream while beating constantly
Cover mixture and put in fridge for 3 hours
beat the eggwhites until stiff but not dry
fold the beaten whites into the noggen
serve with fresh grated nutmeg sprinkled on top of the cups.

Confiscate all car keys!


* you can use a good rum or brandy too, but I prefer Jameson's Irish, or Old Overholt Rye.

Thank you Thank you!!

They don't sell the stuff here. It's one thing I really miss at holidays.

They do sell Advocaat - usually a Dutch treat
Wiki -
rich and creamy liqueur made from eggs, sugar and brandy. It has a smooth, custard-like flavor. In English-speaking countries it generally contains 15% alcohol (30 proof), but in Continental Europe the typical alcohol content differs from country to country and is generally somewhere between 14% and 20% ABV. Its contents may be a blend of egg yolks, aromatic spirits, sugar or honey, brandy, vanilla and sometimes cream (or evaporated milk).

It does make a lovely 'snowball'
Mix with 7-up (known as lemonade in the UK) and a little lime cordial (like Rose's sweet lime)
Quite yummy - maybe try it with your eggnog.

My mom died a month ago. Family is in an uproar over the almost million dollar estate. I have just got possession of her lockbox. I was adopted, but not as a 2 month old infant as I was lead to believe all my life - I was almost a toddler at 14 months old. I found out a lot looking at the papers today. My birth mother, Mary McCarthy, named me "Kevin Hugh McCarthy". That's a heavy handle. I am truly Irish. I am thankful. I am contemplating changing my name. "Hugh"? How cool is that?

I woulda bought a Nintendo Wii with my windfallll but they didn't exist yet. Instead I used the $$$ to buy a sh*t-load of Champagne which I toook to the bridge game my dad woulda been playin' that Wednesday nite if he hadn't a died.

I've got tears in my eyes now. There's another American working in my building, we were reminiscing, telling tales of past Thanksgivings, family, football (the pointy kind), Alice's. I just youtube searched Alice's song because a fella hadn't heard it. Ran across videos of motorcycles at Alice's on skyline. I used to ride a lot there. And I also realized I missed the Macy's parade.

Ahh, melancholy baby.

Hope you all have a great day- and weekend.
Take joy in all the givings of the festival...even when your drink in-laws tee you off.
Thanks to all of you - Really!

what did you make to take to sil's house? and how was everyone & everything?

and how was your Friday Thanksgiving with Bill?


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Monica - 11-28-2009 11:30 AM

We didn't go anywhere so only had one Thanksgiving. I told my SIL last weekend that we decided to stay home. It was nice and peaceful. Lotta work, tho.

And how was yours? How'd the mushroom pie turn out?


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Arden - 11-28-2009 11:37 AM

Wow, you didn't go to your SIL's???

I had a very lovely and lowkey Thanksgiving. My other boss decided to close the office at noon on Wed., so that gave me plenty of extra time to get the house cleaned up without having to clean house and cook all on the same day, so that was wonderful, reduced my stress greatly. We had a very nice meal, and there was plenty to eat, but we didn't go overboard with excess, and that really, really helped, too. We had just two friends over, husband made turkey, stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes. All I made was green beans almondine and the mushroom tart, which came out excellently, very delicious, that recipe is a keeper. Of course, I did modify somewhat. Had never worked with puff pastry before, amazed at how easy it is, and what beautiful, gourmet results you get.


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Arden - 11-28-2009 11:40 AM

after dinner, we played the PFC DVD, which neither of our friends had seen or even heard of before. By the time the credits rolled, we had two more converts. That was a great feeling, spreading the gospel of peace through music, music as a unifying force. A good feeling to spread on Thanksgiving Day.


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Arden - 11-28-2009 11:42 AM

AND, I had Friday off, two days in a row off, I can't remember the last time that happened. So that was wonderful. Went down to Big Sur w/ a girlfriend in the morning, read a book in the afternoon, visited a few friends in the evening. Nice, relaxing day.

And now, back to work for me! Smile


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Monica - 11-28-2009 11:43 AM

It wasn't a big deal. She apologized for not letting us know sooner that changes were afoot. They stay home many, many holidays so she understood that we didn't feel up to driving all the way into town.

Glad you had the extra time and a stress-free day, too. I really do want to make that tart. Maybe this week. How did you modify it?


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Monica - 11-28-2009 11:46 AM

Very cool that you got to enjoy two days off for a change, and that two more people are now hip to PFC. I'm thinking of sending the last delux package I bought to Bill's daughter for Christmas. He's sending her a laptop he's refurbished so she can watch DVD's. I might just have to get another set to send to Debbie.

Whatcha read on Friday?

Good Morning Ladies and lurkers, Happy Saturday!


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Arden - 11-28-2009 11:57 AM

okay, glad it was no biggie, and I hope you and Bill had a lovely repast. Did you ahve Thanksgiving on Thursday instead of Friday, then?

the tart, hmmm ...
well, I used a blend of 3 mushrooms - crimini, button, and shittake (the recipe called for portobellas, I believe)
I used less onion than suggested, and add some garlic
I cooked the onions/mushrooms longer than the recipe said, long enogh to brown them a bit, and when they began to brown, I deglazed the pan w/ several tablesppons of white wine, and let that cook down until the liquid was gone ...
oh, and there's no way that dough would fit properly in a 10 inch pan like it said in the recipe - I made it in an 8 inch pan.
I used the cream cheese, just as directed. I wanted to see how it would come out. It was nice and thick, which I think is very necessary for this recipe - if you subbed "melty"cheese like gruyere, I think it would be too runny. But the cream cheese was pretty rich. The next time I make it, I think I will make it with a mixture of half neufchatel, half non-fat sour cream (I think you could sub thick yogurt for the sour cream, if you prefer) The flavor was wonderful, very like mushroom stroganoff served on puff pastry rather than pasta. Ummm, Ummm, Umm
I ate the last piece for breakfast this morning. All gone already!

yeah, I'm not a member, so I couldn't post my comments, but it's the same thing on recipezaar, where I am a member, and do get a lot of my recipe ideas. It's great to read comments from 30 folks who have made a recipe before you. Yes, I did lattice work on the top. It was very easy, and looked just beautiful.

glad you had some down time, you so deserve it!!

A., I've read two Elizabeth Berg books since Wednesday, Open House and Home Safe. Easy uplifting fiction, not very thick. Just about to finish up the WPA food project book and have two more waiting at the library. Decided I wouldn't go get them today so I'd get all my housework finished today. Big Grin

And, yes, it is virtuous to postpone more books until you get some housework done, I'm proud of you! It ain't easy, that pile of books calls my name everytime I walk by 'em!

it's a great album, some of it is soothing, yes, but some of it is rather lively
as we lost Artie this year, it is a little bittersweet too
have played it for dinner music for Gratitude Day ever year since 1986

the best pumpkin pie you've EVER eaten!!! wow, that must be SOME pie!! good for Bill, if he can please the master baker in the family, he is really doing something right!!


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Monica - 11-28-2009 12:42 PM

He makes pumpkin pies every year as soon as the fresh pumpkins become available at the farm market. It's his thing. But this time, he really out did even himself.

I'm sorry there was such a bittersweet element to your day.

besides the freshness of the ingredients, and your love for the chef, is there anything special or unusual about Bill's pumpkin pie recipe? What makes it the best EVER?

re: Artie Traum. Don't be sorry. It's our traditional music, and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
As much as I love Artie, it is far more difficult for me personally to get through the holidays w/o my sis. But I did manage, and we had a lovely day.

Instead of evaporated milk, he uses my homemade yogurt, a little cream, and a little egg nog. Two large and one very small egg from our girls. Also doesn't use pumpkin pie spice mix. Uses cinnamon, ginger, allspice, and extra cloves. Mmmmmm!

We know one or two of our chickens has begun laying for the first time. They are blue and green instead of brown, and that batch was some mixed breed including Araucana which are sometimes called Easter Eggers.

Then I'm glad to hear it was a lovely day despite everything. It's terribly difficult to be without the ones you love so much, especially takes the festiveness out of holidays.


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Arden - 11-28-2009 01:07 PM

ahh, I'm sure that eggnog/yogurt blend makes all the diff in the world!!
I have never been a fan of spice "mixes" (pumpkin pie, poultry seasoning, italian, whatver)
I always prefer my own fresh blend

so cool and fun to get eggs of many colors!!


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Monica - 11-28-2009 01:10 PM

Yeah, I know what you mean. I definitely like to be in control of how much of what goes into something. Deb brought me some really lovely and expensive spice mixes and I haven't a clue how to use them.

Laundry is done, kitchen is cleaned, just gotta clean the bathroom, put a way some clothes and sweep the floors.

yes, very handsome fellow

Monday, we were hanging out at Carmel Lagoon, there was a huge profusion of waterbirds there. We particularly enjoyed watching a pair of ducks, male and female, who paraded right up to us and hung out for a while (hoping for a handout, no doubt) The male was handsome, with the green mallard head, and all, but the female, with her very subtle pattern of browns, grays, blacks, creams, etc was absolutely beautiful, incredible. You could see how well she'd blend in w/ the dunes around her.


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Monica - 11-28-2009 01:38 PM

I watched that a couple of weeks ago. He's my hero, you know. LOL The book was really interesting, too.

I gotta make a run to the grocery later for staple items and lunch fixins if I can ever decide what that is going to be.

I was looking at maybe dragging Bill out to see Pirate Radio, because he said he wants to see it but it's only showing at one theater farther up in town that I want to go and at 9:25 tonight. Might see what I can find on the internet to watch.

I hope you do get to stretch out and read a while. The house is already clean for the holidays, relax and enjoy yourself.


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Monica - 11-28-2009 01:42 PM

Birds are so cool to watch. And it is interesting how the roles with regard to looks are reverse. He needs to be the one all showy to attract his mate and she needs to blend in with her surroundings to protect the nest. There have been some sweet little bluebirds out in the yard today sharing the chickens feed and a mating pair of cardinals have lived out there for most of the last couple of years. I never get to see our owls but love to listen to them when night falls.


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Arden - 11-28-2009 01:47 PM

we have a birdbath in our front yard, and a hummingbird feeder, as well as several nectar rich plants that the birds love.
So we get quite a show in the front yard. We have hummingbirds, doves, lots of little finches and the ubiquitous starlings, bluejays, crows ...
I love birds


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Monica - 11-28-2009 01:52 PM

We get tons of hummingbirds, too. Especially when the garden in going in the spring and summer. My favorite tho was a male indigo bunting that hung around this summer. They are beautiful!

And we get a few painted buntings, too.

Oops! Someone didn't like me sharing their photo of the flycatcher. There are some really cool birds around here and that migrate through. I never get tired of seeing the blue herons and the white egrets. They look so prehistoric but so cool.

very easy, very good. I think it would be good with a few asparagus tips added into the mixture, too.


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Monica - 11-28-2009 02:59 PM

Yes, it would be and I keep looking at the asparagus for quiche and it always says Product of Peru. I want some but can't bring myself to buy any. I guess if I want it bad enough, eventually I will.

Might add some garlic into the cream cheese, tho.


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Arden - 11-28-2009 03:04 PM

I haven't bought any lately. Don't know where the local frozen asparagus is from, haven't looked. There is fresh asparagus available, but it's not only off-season, i.e., huge and woody, but way too pricey.


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Arden - 11-28-2009 03:09 PM

yeah, I added garlic - and next time, I think I'd add chives, too


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Monica - 11-28-2009 03:14 PM

One thing I buy way out of season and from far away is fresh pineapple because Bill loves it in his lunch with cottage cheese. I like to keep him eating plenty of fruit which isn't easy around here so I buy grapes, too. There really isn't any local fruit at all right now and then there is mostly just berries and peaches in the spring which neither of us will eat because they're grown with pesticides. I'm pretty much forced to go to Whole Foods and buy organic from CA then.

So I'm making my last turkey of the season, stuffed with cranberry stuffin' that tastes great - thought I was the only one cooking.....

Then I started listening to my uncle - he's cooking too!!!!!!

Thanks Sherm........

Sherm on a Saturday night! Really, what more could one ask for? Smile

I scrolledbackaways and sounds like you all had a nice T-day. Good on you. Went out for drinks with JDub on T-day evening. No other turkeys in sight, prolly for thousands of miles. Big Grin We actually were sitting in a British-style pub http://www.blackswanbkk.com/ on that night, and the owner was trying to sell us on their Christmas Day dinner. No turkey in their house, either (besides us). I settled for a blue cheese burger with bacon and onions, served with fries and salad. JDub had a shish kebab.

I would have gone with the bleu berger - one of my favs. Sounds like you had a good time as well. Just pulled out my last of 4 turkeys I cooked this year. Made a cranberry stuffin' and actually, since I had the time, I stuffed the bird. Well the cranberry added a sweetness to the stuffing and a flavor to the bird. Very very good.

Yep, Kevin, it's one of my favorite watering holes here in Bangkok town, although there are several on that list, including for live music. I often get the blue cheese burger there. 300 grams of beef ain't too bad, and the blue cheese is Stilton...yum. The Thai cooks in their kitchen can cook! They musta had a great master chef as their mentor.

Enjoy your leftover turkey! Smile (You musta wiped out a whole fambly.)

oinker doinker. worked thursday, for the first time the bar ever opened at noon -- for those who had the hibegebes so bad the could not make the free meal at the First Presbyterian Church. Great day it was. I was hungry after every kindly sot had their fare, so I had a taste of turkey around 2000. Some canned corn mixed with string beans and a lot of butter with dash of hot sauce, and a whole plastic bowl of taters.

Enjoyed tremendously. Especially with the company present throughout the day.

I hope my bosses let me work Christmas Day as well...it just depends on the time of the first football game.


Love westward, and all around this world. Hope ya well. Thankful to be able to walk up this small hill, and thinking of you all upon arrival. And my sweet old outside cat who needs fed. She still hunts, and know my schedule is as unpredictable as hers. We seem to compliment each other.

John Coltrane's "Resolution" is playing now. Must have inspired a wee bit of something to say something. Norah Jones's "Sinkin' Soon" is telling a tale now, so I best be gitting.


So thankful in this season of thanks that we can avoid commercialism in our own corners of comfort.

I'm terrible at emailing, and paying attention to anything. "Bodysnatchers" by Radiohead on now.

Thanks kpig. I best send a card to sweet 16 real soon. Can't afford Junior's cheescakes no mo.

I'm a slow typer. The Duhk's "Sleepin' is all i wanna do" is telling me to go. to hear Arden lass in the morn. love all

Morning to all the fine Swine out there! Ducks, Ducks, Ducks, I've been seeing them on the lakes down town for a while now, but this is the first time they have been on our lake this year. Beautiful, crisp, clear morning in central Florida today. We spent friday at Epcott with Yaning and her mom. I'm not sure who arranged it, but we wound up with a VIP viewing of the fire works display and a dessert and tea bar. By the time we left Chris and Yaning had her Mom loosened up and when we took them home she was smiling and hugged everyone. No time to relax today it's off to the malls....... PEACE Cool

The brand is Holiday Grapes. The batches coming in now are much smaller but still pretty durn good size. They are domestically grown and not as high up the list of pesticide retaining fruits.

I'm up - slept in as J had to be up at 4 to go to NYC so my sleep was disturbed. Anyway, my cranberry stuffing came out great. Now I have an additional bunch of cranberries and a friend suggested this: 4 cups cranberries, 1 orange, 1 cup of sugar and 2 shots of vodka. Put it all in a blender, blend, store mixture in the fridge overnight. Hey, I'll give it a try - it's supposed to some sort of cranberry compote.

Morning, Kev. Cranberries are always good and good for you. I take advantage of their availability this time of year and fill my freezer with about a dozen bags so I have them to bake with throughout the year.

Compote sounds good but I probably would cook the cranberries per usual, rather than put them through the blender, add some chopped walnuts or pecans and leave out the vodka. But that's just me.

This time of year, it's really kind of hard to avoid all the gastronomical pitfalls, so I'm not even trying.

Hope whatever you ate was truly yummy and totally worth it.


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Nivek - 11-29-2009 08:38 AM

I'll try the recipe first before I start futtzing with it. I guess the vodka makes the sugars in the berries and orange react. That was what I was told anyway.

RE: Fresh Squeals! - Monica - 11-29-2009 08:42 AM

The berries really do cook down sufficiently without totally pulverizing them in a blender. A compote really should be chunkier and have some body to it.

I don't know about truly and totally, but ...
it was mashed potatoes, which I never eat, but they were just there, already made, easy to grab leftovers, and I was very hungry, so ...
I mixed them w/ some Trader Joe's bleu cheese and roasted pecan dip,
yes, it was tasty ... and I ate more than I should have, too

Well it's not a jam, (but kind of) and it's not a jelly so I guess she refered to it as "kind of a compote". Whatever, I'll let you know how it comes out.

Sounds pretty yummy to me. And, yes, I probably do go to extremes at times, but really, I rarely eat much of what I bake. I have between here and the next holiday to be really good. I do kinda watch on a regular basis. And you are so good about it, normally.

OH - NEWS FLASH - I cashed in a small Life Policy my mom had since 1942 and should receive the proceeds ($5,600) next week, which means I can set my power pole and get back on the grid. Which means I can have the refrigerator AND computer on at the same time! Life is good. Also, did I post this? In going through my mother's strong box I discovered my adoption papers entitled: "In the Matter of the Adoption of Kevin Hugh McCarthy...." HA - I really am Irish. And with that knowledge - knowing my birth name - the search for birth mother may be easier. I am uncertain on how to proceed, as I do not, in any way, shape or form want to disturb her life. (She could be happily married with children of her own and a nice white picket fence life and I was the mistake made when she was 16.) But it won't hurt to search.

I think it is wonderful you finally have this info, (which you should have had so very long ago, but?? what can you do, c'est la vie)
I definitely think you should look for her ... as for how to proceed, I know there are some online who have done this very thing ... they probably could guide you through the process better than I ... and I'm sure, in your profession, you have some connections that could tell you how to proceed ...

Not according to the story :
"Kevin was blessed with good looks, and unconsciously he won the affections of a beautiful maiden named Kathleen who is said to have had “eyes of most unholy blue.” Ignoring the fact that he was bound by holy vows, the bold Kathleen followed Kevin into the woods; when he felt her presence, he threw himself into a bed of nettles; he then gathered a handful of the burning weeds and scourged the maiden. One biographer cites Kevin as saying, "The fire without extinguished the fire within.”

"Kevin was blessed with good looks, and unconsciously he won the affections of a beautiful maiden named Kathleen who is said to have had “eyes of most unholy blue.” Ignoring the fact that he was bound by holy vows, the bold Kathleen followed Kevin into the woods; when he felt her presence, he threw himself into a bed of nettles; he then gathered a handful of the burning weeds and scourged the maiden. One biographer cites Kevin as saying, "The fire without extinguished the fire within.”

It was great. My mom is a wonderful cook, and she loves to do it. It was good to have the family together again, cause, if you remember, last year at this time my sister was in a skilled nursing home, so we had much to be thankful for.

I am moving...again, tomorrow... so I am packing today. Good to have The Pig as a soundtrack, and the squeals as a procrastination. Big Grin


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Arden - 11-29-2009 10:56 AM

where are you moving to?

glad your Thanksgiving was great!!


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Arden - 11-29-2009 12:03 PM

good for you!!!!


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Squealin' - 11-29-2009 12:05 PM

Santa Cruz! I am sooo happy. This is the 4th time I have moved in the last 2 years. I hope it will be the last for a while.


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Arden - 11-29-2009 12:07 PM

that's wonderful, I hope so, too, for you


RE: Fresh Squeals! - KD - 11-29-2009 12:41 PM

Finally some serious internet connect since moving! Hey Howdy Hey Piggers...I saw 55 around 3:15 this morning...at least it's a "balanced" number....got back working at Disney(land) - not making "great" bucks, but, some....new living location is "so-so" better room-mates, less space, house is a chaos of clutter and insects...other'n'that, doing well...

If you like Randy Newman's stylings, get yerself a copy of his "Princess & The Frog" Soundtrack...the songs are great, the musical score is just unbelievable! BTW - I predict that, if certain radio stations were to play the opening number "Down In New Orleans" (as performed by Dr. John) the listening audience would really go happy with it...just sayin', mind you, just sayin'. The rest of the vocal score is good - typical Disney musical...Jim Cummings (as 'Ray The Firefly') has a couple of really adorable "Cajun" style numbers with 'Gonna Take You There' and 'Ma Belle Evangeline'...and, for a swing out Gospel finale, Jennifer Lewis brings down the house with 'Dig A Little Deeper.' Also of note is Keith David (the villain of the piece) rendering 'Friends On The Other Side' a darkly amusing scat style rhythm and blues piece, reminiscent of some of Danny Elfman' early works with the Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo. The other two songs, 'Almost There' by Anika Noni Rose, and, 'When We're Human' by Leon-Wooley and other members of the cast - are toe-tappin' fun, too.

Well, there's a music plug, a howdy, and, a hope yer all doin' well!

Oink on my fellow swine, oink on.

Better than Prometheus above. Perhaps embodied. Thanks for every single one of you.

Thinking about "Stockings for Soldiers" and helping for Deb, and her son's company. Two have been killed, and one is in Germany.

I pray for peace so much my gut hurts. My Gu-Gu's bible was found recently. Pages turned with sweat. Every night.

We had the world by the balls post the last Great War. We need to come together. Right now.

Love from Ferry. Thinking of ya upon nights and morns.

Thankful for all you do.

The "powers that be" will not allow independent voices be heard in Wheeling. The Capitol Music Hall will continue being a place to advance benign ideas. Yet, She was not built to fathom those mutant expressions. The "Stuart Opera House" in Nelsonville, Ohio has a grander idea.

The Clash's "London Calling" is about. The Beatles' "Blackbird" is following up succinctly.

I hope and pray for troops like I was. I pray our leaders know the price of serving. And hope our country looks itself in the eye. Grand Funk's "Walk Like a man" is on. Hey! No Christmas music. I swear.

Love and admiration westward, and all around this word. Please keep President George the First and Ms. Rice off the football telecasts.

Amy Winehouse is singing "I'm no Good". We need to uplift each other.

Stockings for Soldiers in on my mind. Veterans for Peace as well. Prometheus Radio Project as well.

James McMurtry singing "Free Line Road".

If'n San Francisco, look for a 49'er...Nate Davis. Was with his Pap today. Good Ball State Man.

The shadows illuminating the field he was on the sidelines of, were quite beautiful.

I hope we all have to serve someday. Ben Harper singing now: innocent criminals..."don't let them take the fight out of you

It still tickles me pink to hear the "420 Bud" guy on an ad for a store whose products are "recommended for tobacco use only". If that's not funny, I don't know what is. Big Grin

Of course, I only hear that "on the air" not on the Interwebs. It still cracks me up, though.


RE: Fresh Squeals! - Anjil - 11-30-2009 10:37 PM

So. My Sis is too tired for visitors now. According to the Hospice booklet, the reason she's sleeping alot is cuz she's saving up her energy for the big transition. I'm gonna buy into that cuz it's a very comforting concept.

I just wrote my final letter to her. Allll the stuff you'd wanna say to your loved one but maybe are tooo scared or whatever. I know that her husband will read it to her. And it's soooo much better than me reading it at her memorial service and wondering if she's up there listening...Fly

I told her I'd make sure that my nieces have a sense of Family (at least as long as I'm still here.) I'm gonna try to do a Xmas celebration for them. But it is all soooo tentative right now cuz maybe we'll be doing a memorial. Or a vigil. Or or or...Confused

Arden, from what I've read, seems like you lost your Sis recently. I'm SO SORRRY !!!!!!!!! Sis is a very special bond, for sure !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Heart

RE: Fresh Squeals! - steub - 11-30-2009 11:10 PM

hope ya well. what was the line...2? Saints laying fine.

Took my buddy Tommy home to Seabright's Lane. Had to turn around by the basketball, and tennis courts with no nets.

Love westward. Thankflul being in the fold. Prayers for peace, and a platoon leader whose face is called dj; and his mom. Love to every pig, Arden especially, and everyone especially.

82nd Airborne. Young fellas helping the best they can. Drug lords remind me of Sicilian dons. This is a tough task.

Hope ya well. Love, and respect from Ferry. Ready....Hand Salute. even a left-hander. to. "Parade Rest" is not even appropriate for the Zero's setting the table.

Coffins coming into the base. Even Obama cannot justifty the lackluster effort put forth on behalf of Families deserving more. We all need to serve. Paix
