Joe Scarborough's Latest Single Is The Protest Song No One Was Waiting For

Imagine yourself as a mad scientist charged with creating a computer program to write the anthem for the next Monsters of Vaguely Folkish Alterna-Rock Festival. The song will be performed by a replicant attempting to pose as a newly woke hipster dedicated to the #resistance.

Now imagine that your work is pointless because Joe Scarborough beat you to it, albeit ostensibly via his own hand and not an algorithm run amok. Whether he can pass the Turing test remains to be seen.


What a pompous tool.

The great virtue of a free market system is that it does not care what color people are; it does not care what their religion is; it only cares whether they can produce something you want to buy. It is the most effective system we have discovered to enable people who hate one another to deal with one another and help one another.
-- Milton Friedman

You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.
-- Sir Winston Churchill
I didn't attend the funeral, but I sent a nice letter saying that I approved of it.

Islamophobia Hitchens.jpg

Say what you will about Christopher Hitchens (and there is much to be said), he understood the existential danger that militant Islam represents to Western society, and he was savagely critical of its apologists in the West.

You know what they say...."Curiosity killed the Moron."

But you can't resist.

Links can be bad on this blog,
And sometimes they'll put you in a fog
Or be so clever and sexy
That they cause apoplexy,
And send you out for some more grog

Chris Matthews Warns 'Giddy' Dems: Trump Will Be Extremely Tough to Beat in 2020
Matthews said on his Hardball show this week that though Democrats are giddy about potentially sweeping away Republican incumbents in the fall, a good year in 2018 does not mean Democrats can defeat the charismatic Trump if he remains on message about the booming economy and as disciplined as he was on Thursday.

President Trump rode a wave of discontent, but for 2020 I hope he rides a wave of solid economic growth, renewed faith in American Exceptionalism, and most of all America's trust in a man whose ideas are grand, but who also grew in his job. If DJT can learn from his missteps, he will indeed be very, very difficult to beat.

33 OK, I need to axe you all a question, before I have to go to bed.

Does anyone here participate in one of those medical cost sharing programs, like Liberty Healthshares or Medishare?

My health insurance for just me went up to almost $900 a month. I think I'm going to opt out and go with one of these, just in case of calamity. I'd really like to know if people have had success getting major medicals paid for with them, though. I can handle my annual medical costs; just want something less expensive to fall back on if something awful happens.

83 vening, Horde.

Anyone up for a musical topic? How about: evocative guitar solos. We're not talking about "best" or even "favorite" (subjective by the very nature of the theme, and too many to choose from). Just solos that make an emotional impact.

The rules (meant to be broken):

-No instrumental-only or primarily instrumental tracks
-No obscure bootlegs, live recordings, etc. Should be a recording a reasonable number of Morons will have heard
-Solos only, no duets (OK, I admit I added that one just to eliminate Hotel California)

I'll prime the pump with some obvious ones:

Pink Floyd, Comfortably Numb: https://youtu.be/Sf3pc-7gfOg

Pearl Jam, Yellow Ledbetter: https://youtu.be/hs8y3kneqrs

Derek & the Dominoes, Layla: https://youtu.be/XVGTGW0cCw8

Dire Straits, Brothers in Arms: https://youtu.be/Wu4oy1IRTh8

Led Zeppelin, Ten Years Gone: https://youtu.be/DBzuYNK95sM

What songs would you pick? Provide links if you can...

Posted by: Average Guy at January 21, 2018 10:10 PM (LMcFk)

84 Led Zeppelin is a guilty pleasure for me; Ramble On is a great song. Most of their music cannot really be covered by other artists, and in my opinion that is because it was so perfectly suited to their particular talents.

Posted by: Huck Follywood, Beer Drinker and Expert Foot Masseuse at January 21, 2018 10:10 PM (ylUqT)

85 My theory about Joe Scarborough is that he wants to cement Mika's affections. So how does he do this? Women are attracted to musicians, so if he adopts the persona of a rock star, he thinks she'll stay in love with him that much longer.

During my life as a journalist/editor/whatever in Europe, I met him and his brother, who has always had a different attitude and belief.

This is what I was told, but I think his aggressive non-conformism (which is why I think we got along) changed toward the end in terms of religion, or at least of a Divine Creator. It shows up in small ways in some of his last published writings.

173 Hitchens completely changed my shole perspective on Thomas Jefferson, whome I was disgusted by for years. I grew up near Monticello too, which made my distaste a little inconvenient since he is a local hero (as you might imagine).

I always wondered, as a result of his profligate spending, if he ever had to sell any of his children to settle wine and book debts. Also, he was such a disgustingly hard-edged political boss (with his hatchetman Madison) that even in his political greatness I just wondered what the other side of the story was, betting it was pretty ugly. Like with how he treated Adams, for example, and his pampleteering in secrecy against Adams for years.

Anyway, Hitchens wrote a beautiful, short, very balanced, biography of Jefferson, and I came away with a very different view of TJ.

Re karaoke, does anyone else here know the song by Climax from the early 1970s, "Precious And Few"?

I love it, but I always thought the lead singer (Sonny Geraci) sounded as if he had the stuffed nose of all time singing it.

Anyway, I'd like to do it in karaoke, holding my nose shut the whole time I'm singing. ;-)

214 ''Anyone up for a musical topic? How about: evocative guitar solos..."

Well, of course, the (too long) solo that ends Layla.

Although I kind of 'get' why Clapton did it that way... whenever I've had to go away/get away from a woman I was infatuated with, it just felt impossible, and I always wanted to try and figure out *one more way* for me to be with that person, talk to them, anything with them.

So it's ridiculously drawn out... but for a purpose, to symbolize the emotional neediness Eric was probably feeling at the time. That's my theory, anyway.

Nope, sorry. Thomas Jefferson was a dick, personally and politically. A complete amoral jackhole. His only saving grace was his excellent writing ability and his complete understanding of the enlightenment ideals behind the American Revolution (which he wanted to exploit for his own political gain). I have read a lot on TJ ( although admittedly not Hitchens book) and studied his personal writings, papers and those closest to him.
But far be it from me to dismiss Hitchens out of hand ~ I'll read it and get back to you ~ but I very much doubt it will change my opinion.

Hitchens was someone I didn't trust on a number of subjects, but did like him when it came to Islam. On that, he was extremely reliable.

And he *really* hated fascism. Michael Totten, Christopher Hitchens, and one other guy (whose name escapes me) all went to Beirut. They were traveling through a Hezbollah neighborhood, and Hitchens almost got the three of them killed because he went berserk at the sight of a poster with a swastika and tore it down. The Hezbollah locals didn't like that one bit, and chased the three men back to their hotel.

270 Reposted from an earlier thread, because this is cool as hell:

Looks like there was a rocket launch Saturday night that I completely missed. A private company, Rocket Lab, successfully sent their Electron rocket into orbit from New Zealand carrying three tiny satellites. It was only Electron's second test flight, the first one having failed last May. Not too shabby!

I was dimly aware of their existence, but I had not been paying attention to Rocket Lab or Electron at all. This launch blindsided me. I spent all morning playing catch-up trying to educate myself.

Wikipedia:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rocket_Lab

Rocket Lab's own website:
https://www.rocketlabusa.com/

Electron is one of the smallest rockets ever to achieve orbit. It's comparable to the Vanguard rocket from the 1950s, but is more efficient so it has a larger payload capacity.

Here is a good video about small rockets:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m1bZO16em2c

Electron also employs some advanced technology. The rocket is mostly made of carbon fiber, its Rutherford engine uses electric motors instead of traditional turbopumps, and many parts are 3D printed.

Here is a video made around the time of the first test flight last May, which gives some details about the rocket:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXGfK6keS2Q

Note the size comparison to SpaceX's Falcon 9. Like Falcon 9, Electron also has nine engines on the first stage and one on the second stage. But it looks like a dollhouse version of Falcon 9!

Finally, here is the complete webcast from Saturday night:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eg5234BOED8

It was a particularly beautiful launch. The launch site was picturesque, and there were some gorgeous shots from both ground-based video and the rocketcam.


I am really sorry I missed it. This would have been a fun one to watch live.

It was at a time where Entwistle and Moon were considering leaving The Who and forming a new group with Page. That was the name they had discussed using because of the joke that you refer to. They ended up staying put and Page used the name.

Moon had already dabbled in leaving the group and had played on one song (Beck's Bolero) with Page, John Paul Jones, and Jeff Beck. John Paul Jones only played on the record because John Entwisle didn't show up for the session.

Ima gonna do a little research on her career arc, as it were. She was big in the 2000 - 2006/8ish time frame. Don't think she's starred in any big "movies" in a while, but I think she's hitting the strip circuit (now that is where the big money is to be made for an A-lister. That, and "escort work". )

She may get a boost in those circuits. Might even be a motivation behind it all....

344 "I could be almost my entire life but that the prodigal son proverb still bothers the crap out of me."

You may not have really understood it yet; it operates on multiple levels. The primary theological point that it was intended to make was an object lesson about the Chosen Race and that Gentiles. Everyone who isn't born a Jew, according to O.T. Law, is a gentile, and the gentiles are the "Prodigal Son" who turned his back on his father (God) and lived a life (lives) of licentiousness and sin.

The Jewish race is the Elder son, the one who stayed faithful and who are outraged when they are told the child(ren) who left their father's house are going to be welcomed back. The Father tells the eldest son, "be filled with joy! Those who were lost have been found!"

And here is where the eldest sons deeper sin comes in - the prodigal has repented, and has sworn to live a life in accordance with his fathers wishes from then on, but the Elder son is bitter, resentful, and has allowed the father's mercy to drive a wedge between the two of them.

The older son is envious, and he is proud, and the story ends with him refusing to come to the father's banquet because of his pride and anger. And the story ends without his repentance.

As bad as the prodigal sons sins were, the elder sons sin was far worse, because it was sin of the spirit, and not simply sin of the flesh.

360 285 - that bothered me, too, but consider this. the father said 'everything I have is yours" to the Good Son. Dad just pointed out that he was happy that his prodigal son had come home after Dad had given him up for dead. I guess the Good Son was annoyed that his dad never threw him a party, but Good Son didn't run away.

It was a measure of the father's joy, not that he loved the son more.

God is happy when Prodigal's return.

The older one thinks his actions have earned him his father's love. Doesn't understand how God loves because of his own Being able to love, not because any one deserves it.

When you leave out guitar solo duets you are leaving out great songs with great guitar solos from bands like The Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Outlaws.

What do you have against Southern rock?

So, okay, a guitar solo means you need a guitarist. I'm going with 'Help Me' by Ten Years After off their double live album, the somehow misnamed 'Ten Years After Recorded Live'. Alvin Lee on guitar. One of the greats.

396 "I disagree with that interpretation when reviewed in context with other parables told by Jesus."

Every parable that was told works on a half dozen different levels.

Here's another level for the prodigal son, which also is addressed more directly by the story of the day's wages - those of us who have grown up in a church, who feel like we may always have tried to be faithful - then WE are the eldest sons. We are the ones being warned not to allow our pride in ourselves cause us to look at those who have just joined with contempt, and especially not to ever allow ourselves to think that we are better than anyone else, no matter what we think we have done.

Because Pride in Self is always the original sin, the sin from which all other sins flow.

It's not "communism", it's not about economics at all. It's the same thing he said to the disciples directly a few other times, and that was "God made a bargain with you. Was that deal unfair? Do you regret it? No? Well then don't waste your time worrying about the terms of what he's offered to anyone else. You Worry about You. What happens to other people's souls is none of your business, and worrying about that type of thing will lead you into sin and dissension. You Worry About You, and leave the rest to Him."

441 83 Anyone up for a musical topic? How about: evocative guitar solos. We're not talking about "best" or even "favorite" (subjective by the very nature of the theme, and too many to choose from). Just solos that make an emotional impact.

The rules (meant to be broken):

-No instrumental-only or primarily instrumental tracks
-No obscure bootlegs, live recordings, etc. Should be a recording a reasonable number of Morons will have heard
-Solos only, no duets (OK, I admit I added that one just to eliminate Hotel California)

I'll prime the pump with some obvious ones:

Pink Floyd, Comfortably Numb: https://youtu.be/Sf3pc-7gfOg

Pearl Jam, Yellow Ledbetter: https://youtu.be/hs8y3kneqrs

Derek & the Dominoes, Layla: https://youtu.be/XVGTGW0cCw8

Dire Straits, Brothers in Arms: https://youtu.be/Wu4oy1IRTh8

Led Zeppelin, Ten Years Gone: https://youtu.be/DBzuYNK95sM

Posted by: Average Guy at January 21, 2018 10:10 PM (LMcFk)


Very hard to separate "solos that make an emotional impact" from "subjective," isn't it?

The best solos are live, but no one wants to hear my "top 20 Jerry solos during a peak moment of concert ecstacy," so I'll play along.

And "emotional impact" in a solo kind of means that you're not just introducing the tune, you're doing something different in the middle. Otherwise you'd have had that emotional impact at the beginning. So much for Kashmir, for example. OK.

Jorma solo, Hesitation Blues. If you want the emotional solo stuff, though it's all solo, check around 2:35:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_V4_ffcWE0

Dire Straits, Down To the Waterline, starting about 2:35
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ugZRzISBrKk

And one Jerry, the Hard To Handle from 8/6/1971, check around 2:55

468 " It is the most effective system we have discovered to enable people who hate one another to deal with one another and help one another.-- Milton Friedman

yeah, as someone up there said, markets have no virtue. They don't care about race, they also don't care about the use of slaves, the pollution created, the patents stolen, the riches turned into weapons, the bribery ... and more.

The simple fact is no "free market" exists, and when we trade with enemies we may in time no only help them enslave their own people, but they may end up enslaving us.

But sure, Friedman had interesting theories that can be applied under the umbrella of a functional republic that makes laws to battle those problems.

504 Very hard to separate "solos that make an emotional impact" from "subjective," isn't it? (Splunge)

That's the point I was trying to make: it's inherently subjective so there can't be a "best".

What I was going for is, the emotional impact of the solo should be more than "F'n awesome solo, dude!" The solo should (just for the sake of this discussion) reflect and/or compliment the lyrics; hence the no instrumental "rule". I think the examples I gave (and many of the examples others gave) accomplish this. Especially, IMO, Brothers in Arms and Comfortably Numb.

Anyway, I just thought it would be a fun topic, and the "rules" were not even really "guidelines", just a way to keep the Eagles and those other dirty Southern Rockers out of the discussion

Yes, I am afraid. Especially because our population has bowed to the altar of policial correctness to the exclusion of all logic, reason, history, science, and wisdom. And they are willing to sacrifice our country on that same altar.

554 CM9000, both DiGenova and McCarthy stumble when they evaluate many people they knew and worked with. McCarthy's far worse. But both of them are true experts in the substance of these matters, AND are both appalled by what they've seen.


DiGenova is quite appropriately harsh on the major personalities involved. His summary is excellent. I haven't taken McCarthy's comments on major judicial personalities of his acquaintance seriously since the Scooter Libby farce. But he knows what he knows about substance.


My evaluations of credibility are specific to the topic. When someone turns up a true expert who lacks areas where he can be disregarded, please inform me.

"Elohim" ("Lord") is used in one thread of the Pentateuch in place of the ineffable name of G-d. Other than Jesus being called "Lord" (e.g., by Thomas at the second post-resurrection appearance to the apostles), it has no canonical connection to Him.

I laughed my ass off as I was typing it. lol

Any time I reword a song I try to keep the original last word of every line, or at least a new word that rhymes with the original, because the original is burned into people's brains and leaving markers is a good thing. Me and an old bass player used to reword songs all the time. We had a whole bunch of reworded "kill binladen" themed Christmas songs we wanted to record. It was funny shit.

Well, he's right about that. Muslims who have left the faith will tell people about it, but they get shut down. No one wants to hear the truth. Especially the government. Appeasement is their approach.

Erdogan....a guy who was jailed for being an extreme Islamist can then go on to become President...it should set alarm bells off for people. Unfortunately, people know more about the Kardashians.

People get hung up on the terrorist numbers and will argue until they are blue in the face. I take a different approach and speak about the cultural differences. Bcz that is what scares me, more than the terrorist attacks. When I say that, it does tend to shift the conversation, because they have no talking points for that.

When you start to ask people what they know about FGM, and Sharia law, and child brides, and the rape game, (which even the German police have named and acknowledged), there is a stunned disbelief. Speak about Sweden as now the rape capitol of the West. Or how the Boston Bombers were refugees.

There is so much silence out there on the Cultural issues. People have no idea, no clue. I know, I was one of them years ago.

He's had quite a few bands so far, a new one lately. he's in his early 20s. whenever i hear the Floyd's line "you bought a guitar to punish your mom" I smile.

Dining in the Horde Valhalla is NOT IN DOUBT for this Warrior of a Woman.


She has armed her son well, and her son wields Teh AXE, and splendidly it is said.

Now then, we must together hasten to ensure his skill with Teh Axe, be equaled soon, with arms of fire and tools of steel of all kinds. To build, to create, to fix and repair.

And The Elders must teach him of our Foundings, our Reasons and the Course for our Present, our Being, and our Future.

To Moron University, with the lad, post haste!

Mom's a total inspiration. Zips thru the daily crosswords and sudoku and cryptoquote. Weekly gym workout. Pains and problems and wobbly on her pins, but probably pound for pound, year for year, in better shape than I am.

Also, when you get to a certain age, you've outlived the statute of limitations on most of your big goofs in life.

and i bet you do have the answers written on your sleeves.

It's remembering which answers go to which questions that's really tricky.

After the front porch RAILINGS, I still have to replace the front porch STAIRS, and their RAILINGS, as well as design and fabricate solar charged LED lighted caps atop the four posts which anchor the stair railings.

To be followed by the demolition of the back "porch" (a tiny, insufficient structure providing only access to the back door of the house), with a proper, 13ft. x 16 ft. back DECK, replete with pergola roof and a fully equipped, outdoor kitchen.

He'd get quite the apprenticeship from those projects. Stuff him onto an airplane and fly him on down.

Alas, I won't be able to pay him wages for "labor". He'd have to serve as a "volunteer".

Hell, FEEDING him would likely bankrupt me altogether.

Everything you donate to Northernlurker goes to a P.O. Box in his name.

Let us let him rest comfortably in Faye's memory.

He is a Moron in Good Faith and he will take God's Message to the Philippines with him.

Amen, on burnout! You do something you love but one day you wake up and it's worse than drudgery! You don't know how to stop!

Spent 15 years of my life in a field I truly loved. But it was almost a 24/7 operation. Not one true vacation. When it came to an end, I hated everything associated with it for about 5 years. I would wake up panicking that I missed x deadline- but x no longer existed. I wouldn't talk about my work with others as I saw their opinions as ill-informed and totally incapable of understanding (that was then, not now).

Over the years, I was finally was able to look back with some sense of accomplishment- and did come around to enjoying my field again, just not as a business endeavor.

Another opportunity came up about 3 years ago in my same line of expertise. Went in pro-bono. Was very happy I was able to make a difference for some folks that really needed my expertise.

Just wanted to say a sincere thank you to the Ace of Spades website for not in anyway promoting the Flag-crapping NFL.
Those are their (i.e. the NFL's) employees. - That is, every single player who takes to the field.
The NFL can fire any of those flag-shitting employees who take a squat during the anthem as Old Glory is supposedly being honored.
(Consider: If, originally, every player on the field stood during our national anthem but one of the water-boys took a squat while Old Glory was being honored during the anthem: do you think for a split second that the NFL would hesitate to fire that mangy ass???)

More importantly, the NFL does not have to play the national anthem or fly our beautiful flag. That would be just fine with me, and I would not hold it against them.
But the NFL has for a great many decades _CHOSEN_ to ostentatiously display a GIANT American flag while playing the national anthem. - They are fucking hypocrites for doing that (mainly for the sake of money!) and now turning around and allowing their prima-donna multimillionaire groupie-fucking employees to shit upon the flag and claim social-justice self-righteousness.
- Bastards.
Fuck. Them. All.

Posted by: fluffy at January 21, 2018 08:23 PM (cHbmY)

===========

Swipe is such a harsh word. But, yeah, I bring home all kinds of things I find lying on the ground that people have lost, even baseball hats.

I'm not sure what the ethical implications are. If it's something valuable I find, then I definitely try to turn it in or return it to the owner (I've done this before with wallets, jewelry, and a bicycle).

128 Oh fer theluva... Look Fashion is complete and utter Bullshit. It is a bunch of arbitrary ever changing rules made up by gay guys that lets two less attractive women talk bad about a prettier woman behind her back.

And mens fashion is worse. Mens Fashion is a plot to make men look pubescent, because that's what the people making the choices like.

Brown belt and black shoes is a sin, but the Lady in the heels and miniskirt has an extraneous penis and that's fine? Nope, you don't get to make any decisions for me. Ever. About anything.

233 I need real-world input into dress shoes, probably wingtips, that are comfortable, well made, comfortable, long lasting, and comfortable. Wouldn't be worn daily. Intermittent Sundays and special occasions. Budget of $150 or so, but I'd spend a bit more for something special. That budget accounts for me buying a black pair and a similar, although probably not exact, brown pair if I end up liking them and the way they fit.

I apparently have Clarks shaped feet for things like this, which seems to be wide but not wide enough to need to buy the official wide.

I slip around too much to have anything with the slick leather soles, too.

it with anything. Tie, no tie, dress shirt and slacks, t-shirt and
jeans, whatever, and it classes it up

306 I need real-world input into dress shoes, probably wingtips, that are comfortable, well made, comfortable, long lasting, and comfortable. Wouldn't be worn daily. Intermittent Sundays and special occasions. Budget of $150 or so, but I'd spend a bit more for something special. That budget accounts for me buying a black pair and a similar, although probably not exact, brown pair if I end up liking them and the way they fit.

I apparently have Clarks shaped feet for things like this, which seems to be wide but not wide enough to need to buy the official wide.

I slip around too much to have anything with the slick leather soles, too.

That budget accounts for me buying a black pair and a similar, although probably not exact, brown pair if I end up liking them and the way they fit.

I apparently have Clarks shaped feet for things like this, which seems to be wide but not wide enough to need to buy the official wide.

I slip around too much to have anything with the slick leather soles, too.

The one that gets me is the hat trend of having fake "worn" spots on the bill where people who have managed to keep up with a favorite hat for a decade or so will have grabbed it with the thumb and finger at the same spot a few thousand times.

I've got a hat like that. It looks like garbage, but I love it. I doubt any hat old enough to have a worn spot on the bill is going to be presentable enough to wear if you're not fishing or hunting.

Plus, some things need to be earned. That's what makes them special and/or favorites.

My wedding dress had a butt bow! But I loved it. Oyster silk with a high boat neck in front and then a v-shaped plunge in the back leading to a row of pearl buttons and the bow at the base of the spine. The buttons to hold up my train were hidden under the bow so it looked like an old-fashioned bustle when all the material with the lace and crystals was brought up for the reception. It was really beautiful. I loved that dress. Then I had it hacked up to make my children's equally beautiful christening clothes.

Heels should be relegated to "play time" only. I've mentioned before, I had a couple of aunts who were snappy dressers, always dressed to the nines.

Their feet were a mess in their golden years. I mean just deformed looking. And they didn't wear 'em all that high.

I remember they say that "wedges" (whatever that actually is, I think I know, but am not sure) is the least bad of them all. But still bad.

456 Twenty pounds of cottage cheese in a ten pound sack. That describes half the women I see out walking around. I swear I have no idea how some of those gals managed to stuff their fat butts into those stretch legging things. I fully expect the leggings to explode the first time one of those gals takes a breath.

Now, I will be the first to admit I am no fashion model. Never have been; never will be. I am the ultimate apple -- a very, very round apple. But I try very hard to wear clothes that match my size rather than cram myself into something at least two sizes too small.I

Worst fashion trend? Foot wear. Stilettos make my feet and back hurt just looking at them. And those hideous platform shoes. I've seen them come and go a couple of times, each time higher and uglier than the last.

Sunday Gun Thread: Striker-Fire Edition (With Additional Fashion Content)

HK VP9.jpg

I'm in the market for a 9mm pistol, because the only one I have is a surplus Astra 600, which is a horrorshow of ergonomics, and to top it off has a miserable kick.

And I am intrigued by the new generation of striker-fired pistols, in particular the H&K VP9, which fits my hand really nicely. I am not so thrilled with the lack of a decocker, which to me seems weird. The H&K USP I have has a great decocker that is in the perfect position to make decocking effortless and intuitive. That means I can fire, decock and reholster safely. How does one do that with the striker-fired pistols?

Regardless, many of them were nice, although I was expecting to like the Sig P320, but hated it! It has a weird ledge for the thumb that made it uncomfortable for me.

Below the fold is another pistol that piqued my interest, although I have to find a gun store that has one.

CZ 10P C.jpg

Why are most .22 pistols designed with 10 round magazines? That's really obnoxious. I have a Colt .22 from the mid-1990s, and it is loads of fun to shoot, but man oh man, I hate loading those magazines. There is a ton of room in the butt, so that can't be the issue. Is it the difficulty of stacking .22 rounds, or a relic of competition, or aliens?

Anyone ever get a hot cartridge down their shirt or lodged between their shooting glasses and their nose or temple or brow?

I have a nice little burn on my chest from a .40S&W cartridge that got past my zipped up sweater! The worst part by far was having to stand there, feeling it burn and smelling the sizzle of burned flesh while I decocked the pistol and placed it on the bench, ....(not really, but it hurt).

Down the shirt

33
One of the reasons I chose the striker-fired Kahr CW9 as my carry gun is that it has a really sweet DAO trigger. I didn't like the idea of the standard Glock-style thing of a single-action trigger with the safety built into the trigger pad. At least, not for a carry gun that I'll be carrying in an IWB holster.

The DAO trigger simply makes me feel more secure. And it's smooth enough that it's a joy to shoot.

34 Anyone ever get a hot cartridge down their shirt?

I was at the range with a fellow conservative woman, but much older than me, and my buddy, the Range Safety Officer. The woman liked to flirt, but was otherwise a good person.

My buddy was a great guy with a sterling character. As the woman was firing she had a shell go into her shirt, evidently next to her bra. She asked the RSO for help getting it out. Ever-accomidated he started to say yes, then remembered he was soundly married.

"Uh, you can get it out; we will look the other way." She teased both of us for the rest of the shoot.

Shook houses and the earth moved for miles around. People freaked out and called 911, there were helicopters and various police and fire departments deployed to figure it out. People were scared and want something done about it...right now!!! Said that they should be charged for all the trouble they caused because you'd be charged if you needed an ambulance, right?!? Well sugartits, they didn't call the police and fire department, they didn't need them. You called them, apparently you needed them so maybe you should be charged. I'm still laughing. New People around here still freak out if they hear gun fire, well, you're on the edge of the country and people are allowed to shoot on their property within certain parameters.....

Posted by: lin-duh at January 21, 2018 06:43 PM (kufk0)

45 How does one do that with the striker-fired pistols?

You don't.

De-cockers are on hammer fired pistols (there may be some exceptions, but I am unaware of any).

Striker fired usually means the stricker is about 80% cocked by the slide. The rest of the striker spring compression is by trigger pull. So, it's like a lightweight double action.

Some striker fired pistols have a thumb safety in addition to a trigger safety (e.g. Ruger SR, S&W M&P). Others (Glock, XD) have just the trigger safety.

You can't de-cock a striker action, because the striker will be all the way forward and be in contact with the primer if it were de-cocked.

51 not quite the same things as a cartridge case coming back at you...

this is no shit: we were at Camp Roberts (Club Bob) for the state GPMG matches, and were down in the pits doing our turn at scoring.

for the match at the time, you would hoist 3 6x5 targets, leave an empty firing point, than 3 more, etc...

traditionally, with rifles, people would sit right under their targets, but i decided that discretion was the better part of valor, and suggested we sit under the space.

i've never been in combat, but sitting a few hundred meters down range from several machine guns all firing at once is a tad disconcerting, even if you are under cover.

but not as disconcerting as the one round that hit the berm, deflected down, then passed through the metal shield and struck the vertical support for one of our targets, penetrating all the way through it.

we ran a line of pasters between the two holes, and it would have hit whomever might have been unlucky enough to have been sitting there.

84 I just assumed that most 22lr magazines for handguns stopped at 10 rounds because that is what fit in the grip. Ruger makes a 25 round mag for the 10-22 rifle so I suppose something could be done for a pistol. But maybe the bigger mag screws up the balance and certainly would make carrying difficult at best.

Just guessing here.

102 I don't much like decockers except on DA/SA pistols. If you really feel you need one with a striker fired pistol, the Canik TP 9SA is a good one to check out. And they're currently around $300.

Striker fired pistols are always 'cocked' but have other safety mechanisms. Think of them as revolvers, only with a better trigger pulls, ergonomics, capacity...

The Glock Family, the Springfield XD family are the most reliable for me. The PPQ has the best trigger this side of a 2k 1911 but it's....a little finicky with ammo. I have a related story, coming shortly. But now....to read the comments.

find the local ranges that rent handguns, then go try all the different flavors you can find. that might help you winnow the field down some.

asking here, or anywhere, gets you suggestions based on what w*rks for other people, not you. that can be useful, after a fashion, but nothing beats personal experience.

if you have friends with items you're considering, but that the ranges don't have, ask to meet them at the range, and tell them you'll bring the ammo.

Pit story time.

Back in the mid-80s I was on my battalion rifle team and we were practicing at the known distance range along with the guys from the M60 teams. Several weeks of practice. We'd switch off in the pits half-day shooting, half-day pulling targets for the pig gunners. Which always sucked because they'd walk the rounds up, kicking stones and dirt into the pits.

After a couple of weeks of that, us rifle guys got froggy and one day we did our last course of fire ALL into the berm. To give them a taste of their own medicine. The thing is, we were shooting in the MORNING. When we traded places, we were giggling like schoolgirls. The pig gunners had evil Jack Nicholson grins on their faces.

First course of fire, they put about 100 rounds per gun into the berm, and we had a frickin' tsunami of dirt and rocks slamming down on us.

No one ever said infantry soldiers were smart.

Everyone had good clues as to what could happen, from the US Civil War and the Russo-Japanese War. However, every army except the British were committed to an attack doctrine at the start, so defensive doctrine was not well developed, and they did not realize the defensive power of entrenched troops with many machine guns and on-call artillery via field phone communication. And the Franco-Prussian War gave the Germans and French a belief that (mostly) mobile warfare could and would happen.

Single stack 9mm, Pug? Or are you open to double stacks?

Single stack drop-dead reliable pistols:

Combloc-
Makarov
Tokarev

45 ACP-
Glock 36
Springfield XDS

9mm-
Glock 43
Kahr K9 or P9
Walther PPS or Creed
Taurus 709 (Yes. Terrible trigger but will go bang every time)

380-
Ruger LCP 2
Kel-Tec P-3AT (yes, seriously)
Walther PP
Glock 42

If you can go up to a double stack, try a Glock 19. Hard to beat for size/weight/capacity. Similar guns are the above mentioned CZ p-10c, the Smith and Wesson M&P Compact version 2

Could be....I have a few B's and Super B's which came with magazines from wherever and some just flat out did not feed properly.

Also, have a gunsmith check it out, give it a pro cleaning and then try a new magazine or two and see if that works for you. Clean the mags as best you can too as some don't come apart so be aware. Check the feed lips, spring tension, etc.

150 I know that semi-autos have some advantages for concealed carry and I use them for CC.

As far as hot brass coming back at you, that is one thing I check for in a CC gun. The last thing I want if I have to draw is that kind of distraction.

For plinking and target shooting that is another of the many, many, many reasons I'm a revolver guy. No hot brass, no policing the cases ejected all over hell's creation, and wide open power levels without having to worry about failures to work the slide.

If a rock's all you have...

The .357 is a sweet round but its pretty well married to a revolver system...and a beefy revolver too, if you want to shoot it more than once a year.

A 9mm with modern hollow point loads will wreck someone's day.

That said, I'm starting to lean towards 10mm or 45 acp for my carry guns. I just need to de-train a flinch I've picked up.

166 All right, wall of text range report follows:

Went to the range with my PPQ M2 yesterday. Because when I do my part, I can shoot eyes out with it. But...when I rush my Mozambique drills...yeah. Train at stuff you suck at, right?

The problem is, I had TWO failures to feed out of 150 rounds. With ball ammo. That is not acceptable to me. I MAY have been riding the slide with my thumbs stacked. I was firing quick when I had the failures, trying to simulate a draw/fire-three-rounds drill.

But that goes back to the main problem with the pistol. At the range, slow fire....the PPQ is flat out my favorite gun to shoot. Of any gun, ever. Even over my CZ 75. And, rapid fire with the PPQ is likewise amazing.

But it simply won't get to 100% reliablity that I get with the XD and the Glocks.

So...going to try a G19 for carry this week, breaking in a new Don Hume slide holster. Will try same drill next weekend, see what we get.
Still flinching, but I've ID'd the problem, now just need to train it out.

167 52 You can't de-cock a striker action, because the
striker will be all the way forward and be in contact with the primer if
it were de-cocked.

Posted by: Iron Mike Golf at January 21, 2018 06:43 PM (di1hb)

So there is no spring tension on the firing pin, and the only force exerted is from the trigger pull?
Posted by: CharlieBrown'sDildo at January 21, 2018 06:46 PM (wYseH)


With a striker, there is always spring force pushing the striker forward, even when it is in the "fired" position.

When the slide cycles back, the striker is held by the sear and the striker spring is 80% compressed.

When you pull the trigger, the striker is pushed back further, which compresses the spring further, until the sear releases it.

175 I carry the FNX 45 Tactical (or the FNP non-tactical version, depending if what I'm wearing won't accommodate the RMR the FNX wears).

My reasoning is that .45 ACP has a higher chance of making the bad guy slow down. Shot placement is great and key to success. However, on a very short distance two way range you aren't going to have much time to sit there and aim, especially if you just went from zero to OH SH*T in two point five seconds.

YMMV

198 Try a Canik Tp9sa. 9mm Used by Turkish Police.

Well made. has a decocker. has a trigger safety. easy to take apart. Large magazine cap (16+) Can use +ammo. (not recommended for practice)

Light and comes with two grip shapers, a plastic locking holster and a paddle and a belt attachment in a case with a loader and cleaning brush. All for under $400.

Drawbacks; recently there were claims that a dropped pistol could fire if it was a striker design with the wrong springage.

Canik has a new model that has fixed that and a replacement program for those who already own one with the old spring. They pay for freight. The chances of this happening are low but with firearms it only takes once for someone to get hurt.

I haven't had a problem with mine. So haven't taken advantage of the fix. YMMV

Nice firearm for a decent price. Put a few hundred down the pipe with NO misfires, 1 stovepipe because of my grip in the beginning. Easy to clean. take apart without tools.

I guess a new Wilburys would have to be a country music version. But who would be good enough for that? Toby Keith? Blake Shelton? Dwight Yoakam? Lyle Lovett?

223 Hey,
Have a very serious look at the FN 509 for $549 at BudsGunShop.com It shoots a bit better than a Glock 19, has a higher capacity, and feels much much better in the hand. It also looks quite cool.
If you want something quite nice for a very good price, look at the Ruger Security-9 for $307

224 211 The .357 is a sweet round but its pretty well
married to a revolver system...and a beefy revolver too, if you want to
shoot it more than once a year.

Posted by: Mark Andrew Edwards at January 21, 2018 07:24 PM (xJa6I)

I shoot .38 Special out of my GP100 4" and it's about the same felt recoil as my .22.

.357 Magnum is more substantial, but it's not .460 Weatherby Magnum territory.
Posted by: CharlieBrown'sDildo at January 21, 2018 07:54 PM (wYseH)

I carried a Ruger SP 101, and 357 out of that was painful. My wife fired it once and never wanted to even see it ever again.

The GP 100 is beefier, so easier to handle. I'm glad yours shoots so well for ya with .38's.

I find polymer pistols easier to shoot and carry. The Glock 21 in 45 is surprisingly light and comfortable in my Galco belt holster.

I did (briefly ) try carrying a S&W 28 in a shoulder rig. (I'm not small and used to wear a trench coat just about everywhere. But.....that's a lot of metal. Lot of hassle. Switched back to Beretta 92.

276 Skip I am fairly confident CA is going to get even worse, until/unless some rudiment of constitutional rule of law is restored. Only hope here is that SCOTUS is transformed (gets 2-3 new members, with RBG and Kennedy gone, at a minimum), it actually starts taking gun cases, and it suppresses the rebellion in the circuits that has for the moment effectively "over-ruled" Heller.


Would be nice for some American states to join in the lawlessness with the racist authoritarians ones, with their "sanctuary" nonsense. Don't see why federal firearms laws deserve any respect, if everything else is on the table (and federal firearms laws, unlike immigration laws, are almost entirely useless and worthless anyway).



Posted by: rhomboid at January 21, 2018 08:51 PM (QDnY+)

277 I'll second what Grump said at comment 39: I don't see how a trigger safety is really any safety, at all.

Any object that can accidentally actuate the trigger, will almost always also depress that little trigger built into the trigger. John Moses Browning probably considered that design, just momentarily, and dismissed it as "retarded as hell."

Just because it's a long trigger pull, doesn't make me feel safe carrying such a weapon. It's not a terribly heavy trigger pull with these striker-fired pistols. I'd like to see some stats on frequency of the user shooting his niblets off with these plastic fantastics.

The story goes an American officer emptied his .38 revolver into an attacker who was armed with a sword and the attacker (Pacific Islander of some sort, IIRC) still closed with the officer and beheaded him, before he, the attacker, succumbed to his wounds.

Saint Browning to the rescue.

289 navybrat, that's not a bad solution, unless you live in Somalia, Afghanistan, or Detroit, and you stand a 30% chance each morning of getting into a firefight.

If your chances of ever having to pull your pistol are one in 100,000 or so, like most of us, I don't see the big problem with having to pull back the slide. Costs you a second, but it also gives you an extra second to make sure you really have to shoot that guy. And makes your niblets absolutely safe from self-destruction.

Posted by: Skip at January 21, 2018 09:05 PM (aC6Sd)

293 Insomniac, I've seen that argument before, and I don't understand it.

Basically it's this: You shouldn't need a trigger, because your mind-brain is your safety, and you shouldn't ever make a mistake.

You shouldn't ever drop a tootsie roll or a crayon into your holster. You shouldn't ever handle your gun when it's cold and wet, I guess; and when your hands are cold and numb and you can't get a good grip on it, and you can't feel the trigger. You shouldn't allow your hands to tremble in a life-and-death situation.

But these things happen. People aren't perfect. That's why safeties exist, at all.

So why put a "safety" on the trigger itself, so that anything pulling the trigger, would also deactivate that safety?

294 Posted by: Pastafarian at January 21, 2018 09:00 PM (sgHEm)

This could be the worst advice I've ever read on this site.

If you have to draw, it's because you have to shoot. To take "a second" to rack the slide might cost you your life.

Your carry firearm should be ready instantly. You may not have a second, or a free hand, to chamber a round. Using your metric of odds, why carry at all?

298 OneEyedJack, I actually carry a revolver.

Mainly because I really suck with a semi auto small enough for everyday carry. That takes some skill, to hit anything with those little pistols, and make them run consistently.

But if I did carry a semi auto, I'd probably carry it without one in the chamber. Unless I carried one like my Grand Power -- nice big external safety, locks everything down, can't move the trigger, hammer, or slide. Flips off with a natural movement of the thumb.

My GP is a little big to carry, though.

302 I don't see the big problem with having to pull back the slide.


Most shootings take place at arm's length. You might well be holding your assailant's knife hand with you other hand. I carry with one in the pipe, hammer down and safety on in DA (when I have a safety).

I noticed that the XD has a kind of hook on the rear sight for racking against your pants or fat roll or whatever you get to.

303 I have yet to try it but a P-38 can be cocked with the trigger safe and a trigger pull will cock the hammer back.

305 The Mass Media at 294:

In that case, by your reasoning, I guess you should probably just forego the holster, and carry the weapon in your hand at all times. Drawing it will cost you precious tenths of a second, after all.

It's all a matter of odds, the way I see it: What are the odds, in each condition of the weapon, each way you carry it (pocket, inside the waistband, etc), and with each type of weapon you might have, that:

a) you'll shoot off your niblets

b) you'll get shot before you can get off a round

c) you'll run out of ammo before an opponent does

For me, in rural Ohio, the odds of actually engaging in a firefight are really pretty small. Why carry? Because it's non-zero. This isn't Gunsmoke, and I'm not Marshall Matt Dillon, so I don't think I'll have to quick-draw too often. And there are situations (where a concealed carrier comes upon a robbery as a third party, say), in which they have plenty of time to draw, and chamber a round.

But again: I carry a revolver. So for me this is an academic discussion.

I'd like to see the stats on accidental discharge self-injury, versus the number of guys that lose live-fire quickdraw competitions in modern-day America. i'd bet the first number is about 100 times the second. So I'd hedge more toward weapon safety, than quick-draw lightning speed.

of some sort, IIRC) still closed with the officer and beheaded him,
before he, the attacker, succumbed to his wounds.

309 Mass Media at 297: Racking the slide is more of a gross-motor movement, than pulling the trigger. Not as hard to do that with cold hands, as it is to maintain perfect trigger discipline.

My point is that people aren't perfect, and so properly designed pistols should have a safety, and one that isn't automatically moved to fire by anything that would also depress the trigger.

311 Some folks find the look of the cocked hammer on a 1911 carried ready -to-shoot disturbing, but I've never thought it was unsafe.

Nevertheless when the children were little and used me as a jungle gym, I replaced the ambi thumb safety with a left-side only safety.

Everybody makes the occasional mistake, but good habits creat layers of "safety redundancy" (to coin a phrase). So that it takes several mistakes to create an unsafe situation, and one hopes that your good habits won't let you make several mistakes, but only the occasional one.

313 But if I did carry a semi auto, I'd probably carry it without one in the chamber. Unless I carried one like my Grand Power -- nice big external safety, locks everything down, can't move the trigger, hammer, or slide. Flips off with a natural movement of the thumb.

My GP is a little big to carry, though.
Posted by: Pastafarian at January 21, 2018 09:13 PM (sgHEm)

Revolvers are a good choice. At least it can be deployed one handed.
There's just too much risk that at the time you need a gun the most, one of your hands will be occupied. It goes against my gut to think that I'll have time and space to rack a round.
In a perfect world, you'd see trouble coming soon enough to brandish your gun in such a way as to scare off an attack, but in a perfect world you wouldn't need to carry a gun to protect yourself.

As to your GP100 being too big, I would mention that I've rigged up a pistol grip Mossberg for under shoulder carry and in winter its good to go. Twas just an experiment, never actually left the house like that.

You apparently suffer from a pretty severe read comprehension problem.

I said, IF YOU HAVE TO DRAW.

Which pretty much negates the basis of the rest of your rebuttal.

"And there are situations (where a concealed carrier comes upon a robbery as a third party, say), in which they have plenty of time to draw, and chamber a round."

And you have statistics on this? Personal experience from rural Ohio?

"I carry a revolver."

Ok. Great. How about you refrain from giving advice to people who might carry a semi-auto, then?

315 Grump the XD has a grip safety, as you are about to confirm with your new .45.


I don't carry, but that's irrelevant to the discussion - which is now featuring some incredibly aggressive categorical assertions.


Does data exist, of a volume and detail, to tell us if in fact mode of carry affects, on average, the outcome of incidents involving concealed-carry? If not, not sure what these categorical claims are based on.


Then there's the double/single semis. One can be chambered, with little chance of anything going amiss, and is "available" to be fired - unless double-action trigger-pull time is now also deemed critical to incident outcomes.

I learned something about concealed carry in churches recently. Louisiana has special rules for carrying in church. You have to have permission from the church and have special training yearly. Eight hours of tactical training per year, in addition to normal CCW training.

326 I think that a pistol choice is all about the ergonomics. Mrs Canuck and I tried out a lot of different models, Springfield (awkward slide rack when having to depress the grip safety), various Glocks (they may be reliable, but so so sights and horrid slide lock), HK (ugghh recoil and grip), MP Shield (poor grip and we couldn't get accurate with it). We wound up with an MP 9c with Talon grips. Very accurate and extremely reliable. Striker fire, so no decocking. A bit large and heavy for CCW, however, and it is a bit quirky on breakdown.

For carry, we use 380 ACP and the Mrs loves her Sig P238, which is a very sweet mini 1911. External hammer and single action, no decocker, but you can (carefully) manually decock it. Ultra accurate and very little recoil. You definitely need to use the safety as it's a very light trigger. I find it a bit heavy for a pocket pistol, so I've just acquired a Ruger LCP II. Very light (hence more recoil), easiest breakdown you're likely to find. One quirk is that I find that using the pinky extender on the magazine is essential, otherwise you get "limp wrist" misfeeds. Talon grips helped the feel as well. YMMV.

Out of politeness, I jacked a round into that oversized beast, and popped off a round. I watched the brass start spinning back towards me, and it smacked into my forehead, cutting a perfect semicircle dead square above my nose. I grounded the weapon, thanked him politely, and got my first aid kit out of my truck. As i was applying pressure to the seeping wound, he said...."

338 "Zimmerman had plenty of time to rack a round before the incident occurred".

Z was ambushed, knocked to the ground, and straddled so he only had one hand to use.

If Z racked the slide outside the car he'd be brandishing. TM could claim self defense as 'that guy was coming after me with a gun' (or in this case the prosecutor could argue it showed Z had intent to use the pistol and was the aggressor).

Taking your pistol out of and back into concealment to rack the slide before an 'incident' and then having to do it again to empty the chamber greatly increases the chance of negligent discharge due to excessive handling.

A good holster with trigger covered is perfectly safe. Keep pistol in holster and only draw when necessary. Observe the four rules. Thumb safety if secondary mechanism desired.

Carrying with empty chamber is better than not carrying. One is free to choose whether to put one in the pipe and the tradeoffs for each.

340 Drawback I've noticed with these striker-fired plastic nines is that the recoil spring(s) are significantly stiffer than DA-SA pistols. Reason: The recoil springs have to cock the striker on closing. Extra effort needed to rack is just enough that my old and arthritic front paws can't do it reliably even when I'm not under pressure. So my semiautos are DA-SA; Walther, Beretta, Makarov.

Food Thread: On A Wing And A Prayer

mustard chicken.jpg

Chicken is surprisingly resilient, and handles a wide range of cooking techniques that would destroy other meats. Low-and-slow works nicely, and surface-of-the-sun temperatures can be fantastic. But...there is nothing quite so disappointing as overcooked chicken. Yuck! I can eat overcooked beef, and in my opinion lamb cannot be overcooked; I'll eat the crispy burned end of a leg of lamb, and I'll do it every day and twice on Sundays!

So what to do about that? Well, take a close look at the chicken in the photo, and you will see a temperature probe that is set in the thickest part of the breast. This was a new recipe (in the language of the greater suburban Dildo, that means, "I have no idea what I am doing, and I don't want to keep jumping up from my drink to check how the chicken is cooking"), so I figured that if I just cook the breast to the correct temperature, everything else should be fine.

And it was. That is some browned and golden and sexy looking chicken!

What? No! You may not have the recipe.

blueberry muffin.jpg

"Serious Eats" is a pretty good cooking site that tries hard to clean up a lot of detritus in the cooking world. So many recipes include (or exclude) steps just...because. For instance, here is a nice recipe for Classic Blueberry Muffins that has a rational solution for the horrible and sometimes marriage-ending problem of blueberries sinking to the bottom. It has the additional advantage of keeping that extra flour out of the batter, so the muffins are moister, and there is nothing worse than a dry muffin!

instant pot.jpg

I got two emails within a few minutes asking my opinion of instant cookers. Artisanal'ette should know better...what the hell do I know about this stuff? Actually, she and I had the same opinion; we already have multipurpose tools in the kitchen that do all of the things that an instant cooker does. This is my response:

Eh….I have never used a pressure cooker, so I don’t know what I am missing. I have a Dutch oven that works perfectly as a slow cooker, and I steam stuff all of the time on the stove with a simple pot and steamer top, and that is really easy. I usually jazz up my rice with sautéed onions or garlic or shallots and then cook the rice a bit in the fat before I add the water, so I have no need for a rice cooker.
I rarely need a time-saver in the kitchen. I know how to cook, and for most things I know exactly how long they take. And…I like to cook, so it’s not some onerous chore to putter around the kitchen checking how my artichoke looks in the steamer, or popping the lid on the Dutch oven to see how the pulled pork is doing

Bluebell's similar question was a bit scary, because RED SOX FAN, so kitchen safety is paramount. As you may know, none of her knives have sharpened edges, and her husband turns off the breakers for the kitchen when he leaves the house.

Adding a big appliance to the kitchen counter doesn't mean that most people would throw away their Dutch Ovens and their steamer inserts and such. All it does is duplicate what most of us already have. If time is of the essence and (sort of) one-pot convenience is important, then have at it! But I really don't see the advantage, although I am confident that I will be beaten soundly about the head by the commenters for this heresy.

Basic Tuna Tartare

  • 1 pound very fresh tuna steak
  • 1 ounce olive oil
  • 1 lime, juiced and zest grated
  • ¼ teaspoons wasabi powder
  • ½ tablespoons soy sauce
  • ½ teaspoon hot red pepper sauce
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ cups minced scallions, white and green parts
  • ¾ tablespoons minced fresh jalapeno pepper, seeds removed (optional)
  • 1 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds,
  • 1 ripe Hass avocado

Cut the tuna into 1/4-inch dice and place it in a large bowl.

Combine the olive oil, lime zest, lime juice, wasabi, soy sauce, hot red pepper sauce, salt, and pepper.

Pour mixture over the tuna, add the scallions and jalapeno and mix gently but well.

Cut the avocados into 1/4-inch dice.

Carefully mix the avocado into the tuna mixture.

Allow the mixture to sit in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

Add the toasted sesame seeds, if using, and season to taste.

Serve on good tortilla chips.

12 Six hours in the smoker with apple wood smoke, then two more hours in the oven to finish it up. I really liked it just as it was but Mrs928 thought it was too salty so I washed off the heavy salt crust on the fat side and then flipped that side down in a large square skillet to cook off a bit more fat. She liked that better but still not to her taste so I OD on pork fat last night.

Heh. Perhaps you should try/make blueberry buckle instead? You'll have so many lovely berries in each slice you won't worry about there being an equal distribution.

29 I have to admit that it has been years since I cooked a Boston Butt and very much underestimated how long it takes to cook. It was in the oven with the pork belly for the extra two more hours, and then 3 more and it still wasn't soft enough for pulled pork.

Today it's back in the oven at 250 and I'm going to leave it in for 5 or 6 more hours.

38 I have a slow cooker that I love to use in the winter. The flavors have longer to mingle and meld in the pot and meats get super tender.

But for the most part I use my French oven, which is basically a Dutch oven with sloped sides, for a lot of cooking. Sometimes even rather using a skillet, I just put it on the rangetop and go to town.

I started to experience Instant Pot envy about a month ago but after reading CBD article maybe not so much.

I think the smallest you can get is 5-6 quarts. A few years back I got one at Lowe's for 9.99. Did everything it needed to do, got some great meals out of it.

Then I upgraded to a model that has an insert that you can use to brown meat so it removes one extra skillet that you have to clean. It cost a lot more than 9.99.

I prefer to grind beans myself for french press brewing. The only local fresh roaster is hit-or-miss on what they have at any time. (I refuse to give Starbucks my business). I've tried the beans at grocery stores and it seems they were roasted during the Civil War.

59 You pressure cooker h8rs haven't a clue. It cooks like a slow cooker only faaast. AND I promise you that the pressure (as opposed to a slow cooker) "infuses" herb flavor and aroma PLUS its a steamer, AND it browns, And you can set a delay, AND it cooks frozen foods (a whole chicken)in a flash just as well, AND it makes incredible soup from dry beans in about 13 minutes. Stick that in your oven and smoker and smoke it. Which is only thing it doesn't do.

I cook in it for guests and don't tell them. I turn it on while we are having drinks. The meat loaf i made in it i was told (by serious eaters) was the best meatloaf they ever had.

Slow cookers are so yesterday or the day before.

60 >>>Chicken is surprisingly resilient


Rubber chickens are the most resilient.

Posted by: Ernie Anastos at January 21, 2018 04:19 PM (/qEW2)

61 Whole chickens like that one are much easier to not dry out. In fact there is no comparison between the meat from those, and from the parts we all more commonly cook.


Did one yesterday, on the grill (indirect heat). Wanted to see if the steel smoker box full of soaked applewood chips would impart any smoke to the bird - did a turkey breast this way at T'giving, and was stunned at how much smoke flavor resulted (gas grill, not smoker).


Smokiness seems to have been achieved in the wings, and drumsticks, and skin. Of course turkey was in the grill for more than twice as long, so I wasn't expecting similar results (about 100 minutes for the chicken). Like CBD, stuck a thermometer in thickest part, got the perfect 165-degree reading, done.


Otherwise was my favorite whole chicken recipe. Meyer lemon zest and salt under the skin (have a Meyer lemon tree), sliced lemons in the cavity, whole bird painted with olive oil and crushed dry and fresh thyme (have a bush in the yard). Need to look up those Utoob videos on cutting up a whole chicken, seems I've forgotten the tricks on that.

You can get smaller ones at Target. I've got a 3qt one, and they make cute little ones for hors d'oeuvres/dessert fondues.

Votermom - Check the recipes you'll use the slow-cooker for to make sure a 2qt one will work. A lot of recipes I find are for 4-5 qt size that I then have to trim by 1/3-1/2 so that it fits. Also, you're not supposed to fill a slow-cooker to the brim.

65 People roast chicken? I've been experimenting the last couple of years with roasting pork and sometimes beef. By experimenting I mean basically stabbing it a lot and putting garlic slivers in the stab wounds and rubbing spices and oil on the outside.

But Stop n Shop will sell me a whole roasted chicken for $4.99. Already roasted. It goes in salad, it goes in rice, you can eat it off the bone. They won't sell me a whole raw chicken for $4.99.

68 Really a good recipe, the Meyer lemon/thyme one. Shallots go in the roasting pan (drizzled with olive oil). Remove them after an hour, into a blender with chicken stock, white whine, some fresh lemon juice, add drippings from pan when chicken's done, then heat/reduce gravy on the stove. Oh my. Highly recommend this one. Store-bought lemons will work, non-Meyers will work, though I'd use less (Eurekas and Lisbons much much more acidic, less flavor).

79 Lucca was born in the Netherlands. The Israel Defense Forces brought her to Israel and she trained there for six months with an American team. She was then inducted at Lackland in the United States and brought to the Yuma Proving Ground in Arizona for training in an environment similar to Iraq. She served two tours of duty with the U.S. Marine Corps during her six years of service. During that time, she completed more than 400 missions. She was trained as a specialized search dog, and belonged to an elite group of canines capable of working off-leash at long distances from their handlers in dangerous situations. On her missions, no humans accompanying her were ever injured. Specifically, the dogs record of military service included Afghanistan with more than 400 patrols and three combat tours in Iraq. She was credited with finding ammunition, explosives and insurgents at least 40 times, without a single human casualty under her watch.

The PDSA noted that she protected thousands of human lives as part of her assignments. On her last mission in 2012, when she was on patrol in Afghanistan, she sniffed out a 30-pound (13.6-kilogram) IED and was continuing her search when she lost one of her legs when another IED detonated underneath her. Cpl. Juan Rodriguez, her handler, thought she had been killed, but was able to rescue her. He administered first aid, and Lucca was then airlifted to Germany for medical treatment and rehabilitation. Ten days after the explosion, she was walking again. Following her recovery from her injury, Lucca retired. She lived in California with Gunnery Sgt. Chris Willingham and his family.

According to Amy Dickin, the dispensarys spokesperson, the award of the Dickin Medal to Lucca garnered more public attention than any other Dickin Medal honoree in the programs 73-year history.

The story of Luccas life has been turned into a book, Top Dog: The Story of Marine Hero Lucca by Maria Goodavage.

Its with a heavy heart that I tell you that Lucca passed away yesterday. Juan was able fly in to spend some quality time with her in her last few days and we were both at her side as she took her last breath.

Lucca served in Marine Corps for 6 years. Her service included 2 deployments to Iraq and 1 to Afghanistan. She led over 400 hundred patrols and saved countless lives, mine and Juans included. In retirement, she became an ambassador for the Military Working Dog (MWD) community and brought awareness regarding the service and sacrifice of our MWDs and their handlers.

Lucca truly was a special dog. Juan and I are both fortunate to have served as her handlers. We will forever be grateful for her service and companionship. After her injury, we did our best to keep her spoiled during her well-deserved retirement. We truly appreciate the time we were able to share with Lucca. Luccas incredible personality and spirit left a lasting impression on us and countless others who knew her.

Never above you, never below you, always beside you

Rest in Peace Lucca, we love you.

-Chris

85 A few weeks ago I was browsing the pasta sauce aisle at Whole Foods and something caught my eye: a foil packet containing Skillet Sauce. You just dump the contents into a skillet with water and dry pasta, and cook for 15-20 minutes. I thought the test drive would be terrible but it wasn't too bad, so I went back and got another one, this time white garlic flavor instead of fire roasted tomato. It's great for a quick meal for the fam, but I wouldn't serve it to company. Would cook pasta the normal way for guests.

Blackberry/walnut buttermilk pancakes, chicken breakfast sausage.


Tragically, it seems Grade B maple syrup is generally unavailable, at least where I always used to see it. Much prefer it to Grade A, amber, all that stuff. Wonder if it's sector issue - Grade B might be in more demand among food manufacturers or something? I don't think the "crack" (as with petroleum) has changed much for maple syrup - you still get various amounts of different grades during the cook-down, right?


Remember discovering Grade B in Vermont back in the early 90s, when I'd buy from individuals. Perfect stereotype farmer riding a tractor - plaid coat, barking done running along next to him - flag him down, he says he's sold out except for one 1/2 gallon can of Grade B. Perfect, I tell him.

Season and brown a Chuck roast, throw it in the cooker with a can of tomatoes, can of old school Campbells mushroom soup, one envelope of Lipton onion soup mix and a can of water. Set it on low and go to work. eight hours later, incredible pot roast. Serve on whatever you have time to make when you walk in the door and pour your drink, potatoes, rice, polenta, whatever. I don't think I've ever had a bad meal come out of a slow cooker. You could use an old boot with the above ingredients and it would be good. I don't trust leaving the oven on all day with the house empty.

116 Mrs IMG got an InstantPot in early Dec. I broke it in on New Years on a pork roast and kraut.

Turned out real fine. Nice to brown the roast in the cooker instead of a skillet.

Less than an hour to put it together.

118 Lucca truly was a special dog. Juan and I are both fortunate to have
served as her handlers. We will forever be grateful for her service and
companionship. After her injury, we did our best to keep her spoiled
during her well-deserved retirement. We truly appreciate the time we
were able to share with Lucca. Luccas incredible personality and spirit
left a lasting impression on us and countless others who knew her.
Never above you, never below you, always beside you
Rest in Peace Lucca, we love you.

126 I was in the "I don't need an Instapot" camp for a long time. My husband bought me one for Christmas. I am starting to see what the big deal is. I made an excellent stew in a fraction of the time and some baby back ribs that fell off the bone in a hour. I can see how this is going to be a life saver in the summer. Roasted chicken is going now. My last one was a fail. Hopefully this one will be better. My bone broth was amazing. I will never make a cheesecake in it because that is sacrilege, but this contraption will probably replace my slow cooker. And honestly, good riddance.

2) Praise and Glory be for the near simultaneous cancer healings among three of my in-laws.

Michael the Texan- (12/12/17) Difficult divorce from longtime physically abusive wife. Please pray for my wife, too, as this divorce will leave her with much less financial freedom.

Elisabeth- (12/12/17) Chronic stress from my perpetually low income is worsening my known autoimmune problems and probably some that haven't yet been diagnosed, and I've just started my fifth course of antibiotics for a recurrent sinus infection and nothing I've tried to improve my income situation (finding a better job, asking for a raise, selling my work, finding cheaper housing) has worked. Plus, I need new glasses but can't afford the eye exam.

Redinabluestate- (12/12/17) Prostate cancer.

Physics Geek- (12/12/17) Both my mother and stepdad (divorced and not together) are suffering from dementia, with my stepfather's case being somewhat further along.

NoLongerInTheBellyoftheBeast- (12/18/17) I need to have prayers added to the list for a friend and cow-orker named Renee who just got diagnosed with endometrial cancer. I could also use prayers for myself. Major joint pain and long term major depression. And prayers for better finances to pay medical bills.

Johnny- (12/19/17) About a year and a half ago my wife divorced me. It was all very civil and amicable. Today she told me (texted me) that she is now engaged. This whole time, I've been torn up and depressed, of course, but, I don't know, maybe I was in denial or something, because when she told me that.. Gah. It's really over. That life that I was so excited about, will never come to pass.

Tone Staple- (12/19/17) For a relative with Pick's Disease, and for his family. Pick's Disease is a form of dementia that starts with gradual loss of language.

Arch Stanton- (12/19/17) My dad is recovering from having a pacemaker put in, and battling COPD.

Captain Whitebread- (12/19/17) I've had to go to the local hospital ER a couple of times since heart surgery because I was concerned I might be having more heart trouble. I didn't, but since I didn't have insurance, the bill was huge. I tried paying a little every month, but sometimes I missed because money is really tight.
Monday, I was served with a court summons. The collection agency working for the hospital is taking me to court. I owe $4500. I have no way of paying in full. I have to appear in court with the next 35 days.
All I am asking from the Horde is prayers that a workable solution might be found. I am not asking for money; everyone has done more than enough after my heart surgery and when I almost had my electricity cut off a couple of years ago. I believe that with enough prayer, a way will reveal itself. At this time, I don't know what it is. But I believe there is one.

Ladyl- (12/20/17) My dad is back on Hopice and isn't doing great.

Anonymous- (12/19/17) ...Her family has to leave the R.V. park because her husband lost his job two months ago. He has a job prospect in Texas so he is going after it. There are 7 of them living in a 16 ft. trailer but the children are always clean and happy. She has been driving for Uber just to keep food on the table. She's scared about moving, trying to be normal for the kids, doesn't know what will happen if this job prospect doesn't work out. She's got such a good heart and is trying so hard, right now she feels a little desperate and tired.
Please pray for her and her family. I know how much it helps.

Anonymous- (12/22/17) A dear friend who survived cancer--twice--died unexpectedly Thursday night. Not from cancer. He was one of the kindest, sweetest people I've known. His widow is in shock, and sitting in their house looking at the tree they decorated together, and their gifts to each other under it.

Patrick from Ohio- (12/24/17) Can you add my Sister In Law Denise she suffers from LUPUS like symptoms and nothing is really working.

JQ- (12/26/17) 'Twas an otherwise Merry Christmas, because it might be Dad's last, as he has advanced cancer. Dad (80s) is ambulatory but slowing down...
The reality of Dad's situation hit hard tonight after I got home and my heart is breaking.
Prayers welcome, if you would please.
Thanks, Merry Christmas, and God bless you all.

Jim, Sunk New Dawn- (12/26/17) From a rather chilly Orlando, FL. 89 y/o Step Mom in deteriorating health. One way trip, and a contest as to what gets her first. Water around enlarged heart, or OldTimers.
Looks like I'll have to make a hasty long term TDY to Orlando, for however long time is left.

DaninMN- (1/8/18 ) Daughter came home from NICU and met her 19 Month old Sister.

mpfs- (1/1/18 ) Mom was taken by ambulance yesterday afternoon to the hospital. Possible stroke. When they took her sugar last night it was... 759. Even the neurologist did a double take.

Catman- (1/2/18 ) My dad died tonight.... Please prayers.

Ron- (1/2/18 ) Please pray for the family of Zack Parrish, the Douglas County Sheriff's
Deputy who was slaughtered in an ambush in Highlands Ranch, CO on December
30. He was a true follower of Jesus Christ. Zack was 29. Please pray for his
wife Gracie and the two little daughters he left.

rocketeer67- (1/2/18 ) Praying for strength to get through a totally unexpected, unforeseen and unwanted divorce from my wife of 20 years. Praying for understanding as to why she has asked for it. Prayers that her eyes would be opened to the hurt that this is causing everyone around her, even if we're all trying to accept it (with varying degrees of sucess moment by moment) with dignity, grace, and love. Most importantly, prayers for our young children, who while appearing to be bearing it better than expected are clearly (at least to me) not themselves.


AllenG- (1/9/18 ) None of my normal pith tonight. I desperately covet the prayers of the Horde.
The 9 yr old son of one of my old HS/Church youth group friends wouldn't wake up this morning. They took him to the ER and an MRI found a mass in his brain. A first surgery to remove it was only partially successful, he still hasn't woken up, and he's been back I surgery for the lady couple of hours.
His name is Brody Nelson. I grew up with his mom, Courtney. They and their family could really use a miracle right about now...

Gabe- (1/9/18 ) I have a couple of good friends, Patrick Porter and Barbie Turner who are both battling cancer. A petition to the almighty by the horde would be huge IMO.

Commander Cobra- (1/9/18 ) Prayers for active Service Members and those who have served.

sulla- (1/9/18 ) I'd ask to have my mother and sister-in-law added. My mother broke her shoulder this week, and my sister-in-law is recovering from a liver/kidney transplant.

Fox2!- (1/14/18 ) Please add a friend to the list. She is in ICU, sedated and intubated.

jeannebodine- (1/14/18 ) feeling particularly low right now in this brutal winter. My 68-year old husband suffers from Early Onset Alzheimer's Disease and he is deteriorating rapidly.
We have no family around us and friends are thin on the ground, even though we always had many friends throughout our lives. Even close friends have disappeared.
It sure is a different world out there than the one I grew up in. Prayers would be so appreciated for my husband and for me, a full-time spouse caregiver.
Thank you so much. Prayers for you and the Horde from my end.

Mary Poppins' Practically Perfect Piercing- Job issues; (1/16/18 ) A friend's wife of barely 2 years was killed by a train. No word on whether it was an accident or suicide. Prayers for him and his daughters.

Nathan- (1/16/18 ) Kitsapbass (and family) homeless. Long story short. Wife's ex husband has custody of elder two kids, goes to jail. We move in because state is mandating parent must be in residence, requiring us to break lease. Ex-husband kicks all (including kids he has custody of) out of house because he is upset that we are in the house (even though he knew all this was required by state).

Kim Jong-nun- (1/16/18 ) Please pray for the complete recovery of Wayne DuPree's sister who has the most virulent form of breast cancer.

Northernlurker- Wife has passed, (1/17/18 ).

Czarkazm- (1/17/18 ) We are grateful to God for taking care of our daughter in her first semester at college while earning a 4.0 GPA.

thathalfrican- (1/19/18 ) My mother for healing from her cancer and weight gain. My father for having the weight of the world on his shoulders. My siblings for being so young and having to endure all this. My wife for a safe finish to her pregnancy and delivery of our child.
Some good fortune for my family would be helpful heh.

134 I have to admit that it has been years since I cooked a Boston Butt and very much underestimated how long it takes to cook. It was in the oven with the pork belly for the extra two more hours, and then 3 more and it still wasn't soft enough for pulled pork.

Today it's back in the oven at 250 and I'm going to leave it in for 5 or 6 more hours.

I just dump the whole thing in the slow cooker in the morning before I go to work.. By the time I get home, it is perfect.. And I only spice it with salt & pepper.. That way I can either pull it and add BBQ sauce at that time, or slice it or pull into bigger chunks to serve with noodles or sauerkraut and spaetzle or dumplings.. very versatile.

161 I read the prayer list and am overwhelmed by what people are enduring and shouldering. Humbled also.

The day NL's wife died, the following verse sprang up in an app I have:

Deuteronomy 31:8
"The LORD himself is who goes before you. He will be with you. He will not fail you nor forsake you. Don’t be afraid. Don’t be discouraged.”

It reminded me that He does not promise to make our earthly life smooth & sorrows disappear, but He promises to walk through them with us, if we ask. And He has gone ahead to prepare a place for us on the flipside of life.

I've been in places in my life where I've read that and been like "big whip-tee-do"...like that really helps me right now in a practical way. And other times where it has encouraged, assured and strengthened me.

167 Lizzy,
I got into essential oils, not the doterra pyramid kind, but trying to source from reputable dealers who source from the best places. I found out it ain't a cheap hobby. Paying hundreds of dollars for a few milliliters of Rose Otto essential oil is not for the average person. I made coconut oil sugar scrubs, ointments/balms, and body butters for friends and family. It was strictly a hobby although sometimes someone would come back wanting to buy more.

182 I have never tried making fried chicken-just roasted or or broiled chicken; I was afraid it would turn out to be greasy mess, or if I got fried chicken from the store and reheated it, it would be soggy-which has happened. Yesterday, however, I saw a baked chicken recipe on a corn meal box for corn meal, shredded parmesan cheese,and spices. I dipped the chicken in milk and then dipped it in the spice/corn mea/l.four recipe and basted it with butter. Cooked in the oven for 40 minutes. It really turned out well.-liked fried chicken , really. FenSpouse asked to have it again sometime.

well, yeah there are treatments but I did not know there was a flu test. My flu test was the doctor who would say flu or cold then dispense medicine.

you should get some Tamiflu when it is available and store it for when you need it because they always seem to run low during flu season then people start rationing for old people.

231 Perfect fried chicken:

Bake chicken at 200 for 20 minutes. Remove and let cool. Next dredge in buttermilk and then coat with cornmeal, salt, and pepper. Fry in bacon grease until skin is crispy, drain, let it rest on newspapers, then serve while still hot.

Mama told me so in order that I could impress my future Mrs Mingo. Guess what? It worked. 48 years later she is a fiend for my fried chicken with a dash of Louisiana hot sauce.

US Healthcare system explained in 1 post. A strep vs flu test would cost about a dollar without our FDA and AMA. Drugs would cost about a buck. Birth control pills should cost about what flintstone vitamins do. Same for morning after. FDA, doctors and pharmacist prevint US healthcare.

244 "Perfect fried chicken"

Thanks for sharing that, colfax.

I remember a long time ago, discussing that I had got a deep fryer.

Long story short, two years later: I'm glad I got the thing, but (a) I don't use it very often anymore, too much to clean up and (b) some things are super easy (like fish), others not so easy (like fried chicken).

336 QDPSteve, another song that became a big hit when a woman covered it was "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun". Cyndi Lauper made it a hugely popular girl-power anthem, but it was originally done by a guy as a complaint about the modern dating scene. He wanted to find a nice girl and settle down and get married, but no; they were all just out to have little fun.

I was listening to a lecture by a couple of Venezuelan economists who were talking about the history of Venezuela. For the 50 years prior to Chavez, the control of the government was ping-ponged between the Christian-Democrat and the Social-Democrat parties with nothing to show of it other than loss of freedom, economic failures, inflation and corruption.
Chavez was an outsider who was perceived as a new breath who would break the cycle of stupid and corruption, and bring a new era to Venezuela.

Of course, once Chavez was in power new breath he brought was to go full socialist in partnership with Cuba.

WE ARE SO FREAKING LUCKY THIS TIME!

It is so easy and if only I would call and sign up for their class they could show me how! (First 10 callers are even free.)

I smell a rat. Why do I always think these are the people I need to be protecting my investments from?

79 71. Heh. Let's just say that when I got the go-ahead at one of my previous gigs to begin Lean, I went in bigly. Took a week, and a lot of cursing and threats, but by Tengri, my line ran like a watch after that.

80 Pffft, who cares if Lisa Bloom arranged payments via a third party for Trump's accusers to come forward. Those women needed economic stability in exchange for taking such a great risk!


OMFG Trump's lawyer paid Stormy Daniels and she changed her mind about telling her story to InTouch magazine right before the election!!!!

81 56. You're a perfect candidate, then. The antiques and such - I'm sure you have them set in a certain order.
I first learned of the idea - before the name - when I came across a machinist's tool cabinet. Its order and placement of tools, its inventory, it was a pure symphony of physical order.

Maybe when I retire. Right now, I'm always on the road for work and when I get home and clean out my truck, tool bags and boxes just get stacked in the shop. By the way, my current shop is only 8'x11', so there's that.

I really do have too much stuff. I'm tool poor as they say. I need to start taking stuff to either the auction house or habitat for humanity.

I think that's a trait shared by any competent woodworker. I also collect carving tools. I have a basic knowledge about how to use all of them and have used my hand tools on a few projects. But lately they're collecting dust as I don't have time.

91 The Democrat Party operates on its own sense of moral courage and decency.

It is, of course, a sham, a veneer over the top of the depraved soul that runs it, the greed, depravity, and hate.

But many people see (or only allow themselves to see) the veneer, and even block their nostrils to the stench.

If they *really* cared about minorities, wouldn't they take a critical look at their policies and the harm they might be causing? But, no, introspection is strictly forbidden, therefore they do *not* care about minorities or the poor or the downtrodden or anyone else.

Hassan said similar attacks happened on "Muslim land" and no one cared if Muslims were hurt. She told police and fire investigators, "You guys are lucky that I don't know how to build a bomb because I would have done that."
...
Court records show no history for Hassan. She was a St. Paul Public Schools student, first enrolling in the district in 2010 at Highland Park Junior High.

I think we care too much about Muslims being hurt. I would not mind seeing her facing some real hurt, as in Jordanian-pilot-captured-by-ISIS treatment.

If she is undocumented as the last paragraph implies, can we just send her back to Ethiopia?

Speaking of Lisa Bloom, there is a new Netflix documentary by Marta Kauffman about how brave Gloria AllRed is.


Kauffman - Another reason is, to be honest, it really pissed me off the way people spoke about Gloria. It really bothered me. Here's this woman who has spent her entire life fighting for justice and if she were a man, people wouldn't say the same things about her. I think they'd say the opposite.

Dr. Hanson writes like a historian. (Goober voice - "Surprise, Surprise." Sgt Voice, "Shut up Pyle")

Dr. Hanson writes a very good description of what is. I want Nostradamus to tell me what the future will be. I want solutions to the obvious problems.

Since no one can agree on what we need to do to get from where we are to where we want to be, that is going to be a problem. Since no one can agree on where we want to be, that too, is going to be a problem, and since no one can agree on who will lead us to the promise land, I don't see any solutions.

More beer, I'm thinking.

Val was Best of Winners for a point and Handsome Dan was Select Dog (Best of Breed going to a physical wreck) for two points toward his Grand Championship at today's Fort Bend KC show.

The cement floor in the new pavilion at the Fort Bend County Fairgrounds was soaked with condensed water, so the rings for today's show were moved to cattle barn, where the dirt floor was nothing but ruts. Terrible conditions for showing all weekend.

Most of my tools are in storage some NIB others, well - a Dyno 1/4" drill and a Porter Cable grinder that's so heavy you must pull the pressure off to keep it from eating through the metal. I would give them to someone who would use them but not one of those donation centers. I don't think the people that really need the items donated get a chance at them.

I've got a thing about my stuff.
