Thursday Gourmet: Chicken With Wine, Onions and Grapes

16 July, 2009

My freezer is chock full of chicken.  Well, not chock full, but there are at least five packages of chicken breast fillets in there.  What to do, what to do, what to do? Read the rest of this entry ?


Alcohol, Tobacco and Sex Education

4 May, 2009

A couple of comments between Chappie and I, over at Postman’s blog, Postcard’s From Gawd, got me thinking about the various sins — especially tobacco and liquor (which really wouldn’t work all that well in hell;  heaven would be a heavenly atmosphere for these sins).  And it got me thinking about the attitudes of kids back when I was in high school.  Last century.  Way back in the 80s (no, (((Girl))), the 1980s). 

In high school, I began to watch people.  Not in a freaky, stalking way, but in an almost sociological way.  I began to observe.  I tried to figure out why people acted the way they did, behaved the way they did.  One of the most fascinating aspects was the disconnect between words and deeds.

Ultimate Protest

31 March, 2009

Do you ever feel like you want to protest something?  Or everything?  But each different thing that you protest needs a new sign, right?  Wouldn’t it be nice to have an all-purpose protest sign?  One that tells the world you hate everything that your version of god(s) hates? 

Well, (via hissingteakettle (attribution under Creative Commons)) here it is: Read the rest of this entry ?


My Entertaining Valley

10 December, 2008

Yesterday, I wrote a post about a particular idiot in my valley who does not know the difference between Kiwanis and Kwanza.  A few months ago, I wrote about a neighbor who decided that child abuse was a small price to pay for saving some money at the drive-in.   Chappie, who lived up here back in the old days, mentioned that things seem to have gotten worse up here.  Don’t know if it has gotten worse, but it is definitely entertaining.  Here’s anotherquicky about my valley: Read the rest of this entry ?
