I assume it was drained outdoors and cleaned before being brought in. It still needs to be skinned, but that would ruin the tranquility of the picture, so they probably deviated from the normal order in the interests of aesthetics.

I'd go with some type of beet.
The greens don't really look carrot or parsnip-like, and there are varieties of elongated beets in addition to the more common (in modern times, anyway) round ones.

62 I like these kitchen still life paintings. They are realistic enough to provide a level of life-like detail while retaining artistic elements of light and position. And being 'household' scenes allows the artist to show the deep wood grain and other details that appear so rich in indoor lighting. They are both effective and attractive.

Radishes are also a possibility. The greens definitely look more like radishes than carrots or parsnips, but I'm still going with beets.

I'm not a fan of Jane Fonda but I like the movie Cat Balloo. At the end she is standing on the gallows and they ask if she has any last words, she says "let's get on with it."
That's what I hear from Trump. Anytime he tweets about this impeachment scam he seems to be saying lets get on with it. Total lack of anything even vaguely resembling concern over this idiotic shit show. Just bored, let's get on with it shall we. I love that guy!

We ate rabbit and squirrel and frogs legs and venison and grouse and all kinds of fish and whatever else we could nab with guns and poles and nets. But the one time my dad and his buddies got a couple snakes and cooked them in strips held over the fire I was dead set against eating any.

Finally coerced into trying a bite, I did not find it to taste chicken-esque and was in no hurry to add it to my regular menu.

You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it.
Dey's uh, rabbit-kabobs, rabbit creole, rabbit gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried.
There's pineapple rabbit, lemon rabbit, coconut rabbit, pepper rabbit, rabbit soup, rabbit stew, rabbit salad, rabbit and potatoes, rabbit burger, rabbit sandwich.

128 A good object lesson to watch is taking place this week with the UK elections, for anyone who wonders if a legislature would do anything so stupid that it would cost many members their seats. Remember all the maneuvering and infighting to block Brexit that took place in September - October previous? The Parliament was able to block it temporarily, but at the price of being forced to call new elections. (when they could have put those elections off for 3 years if they had allowed it to go forward)

UK Elections are on Thursday, and estimates are that, from all parties, at least 50 - 80 members of the previous parliament will be tossed out and replaced by pro-Brexiters. This also includes some conservative party members who refused to support brexit, and who have been replaced as a result.

So yes, politicians with puffed up egos commit political suicide quite easily.

I stopped drinking for eight years because my marriage was on the rocks and I was being a shitty father. It was mostly frustration about being in a shitty job but drinking lessened my ability to deal with stress. So I just stopped cold turkey and set up a long term plan to make my life better. And it worked. I drink moderately on the weekends and when I go out but never get hammered. And I saved my marriage and have a great relationship with my children.

The Morning Report - 12/9/19

trutrea.jpg

Good morning kids. Start of a new week and the top stories are the release of the IG Horowitz Report and the House Judiciary Committee set to charge President Trump with treason. Yes, gentle reader, you read that right: T-R-E-A-S-O-N. These people are truly sick. They are doing more than just playing games; they are playing with fire, here. If I had the ability to hold back and not slam my fist into Jerrold Nadler's gaping maw, I would certainly displace the perpetual slab of pastrami with a microphone and try to get him on record to answer the question "do you realize treason is a capital crime?" Okay, I get it. You turds are doing anything and everything you can to sabotage the President while covering up for your own crimes of sabotaging 2016 and then Trump's nascent presidency, which for the record, come within a red nether-hair's breadth of actual dictionary definition treason. Meanwhile, we still have hearings set for today, which you gave the Republicans on the committee essentially zero time to prepare for, dumping thousands of pages of evidence at the last minute. Not that that would matter since the committees are a farce of both fairness and legal precedent.

The Democrats have ensnared themselves in their own trap. For over three years, everything they have done to rig the election and then sabotage this president has failed, and spectacularly so. And since impeachment was promised even before Trump took the oath of office, impeachment is what they are going to have to deliver. But invoking treason is truly crossing a line. For argument's sake, let's say the House votes to impeach - and the jury is still out on if they even have the votes (although I suspect they do and the scuttlebutt that they don't is a head-fake), and then he is exonerated in the Senate. What then? Forget the shmoo-like bespectacled "G-d-cursed chimptato hybrid" screaming at the clouds. Will the Antifarians turn into Weathermen 2, Electric Boogaloo? I almost feel the Democrats would cheer that on, if not intentionally engaging in all of this to enable exactly that. As I said, they are playing with fire here.

NOTE: The opinions expressed in some links may or may not reflect my own. I include them because of their relevance to the discussion of a particular issue.

You obviously don't understand the importance of maintaining a sinecure position. The OIG is an embarrassment, with no powers and really no reason to exist except to give DC Beltway criminals a running head start or to completely torpedo a legitimate investigation by some entity that isn't either completely corrupt or has some level of legitimate authority.

Yes, we all want the bad guys to pay a price.

But, first of all, let's not beat up our own people based on partial quotes. I think that Trump's instincts are right about a trial - he is going to win, and this way he gets some licks in on the other side. But I also think that it is better to have it over and done with.

Draw this thing out for months and making it ugly - because you know the Dems will lie and cover up and the press will push their story - is not necessarily the best thing for the country.

Quid pro quo failed.

Bribery failed.

It's polling worse and worse, so they keep upping the ante.

Treason will fail, too. Making the charges more extreme doesn't change the fact that no one believes the charges.

But it's a sure bet that censure is off the table. you can't charge treason and just settle for censure.

103 But this is that thing about "word" people. They are looking for words that they can use to change the world. Oh, look, in the Constitution it says Treason is a reason to impeach, so we will reference treason. Just like they did with bribery.

You are projecting, worse still you don't realize that they are communicating in a different language than you.

When they hint at "treason", it is because they want to change the meaning of the word. The Left has a very long history of deconstructing the language and converting words into emotional triggers where the emotion has little to do with the word's original meaning when used in a structured language.

The idea here is conjure up manipulative emotions for those who understand that there is concrete definition of "treason", but more importantly, they are preparing the word to have a different emotion among their usual clients they routinely manipulate.

Most people don't know what "treason" is, but there is an amount of strong emotions behind the utterance of that word.

Look at the word "racist". A generation ago, someone throwing that word at you would end up sifting their stool before heading off to the orthodontist. Now "racist" doesn't have any meaning other than being used as an emotional trigger, and even that trigger has lost most if not all of its effect just in time when the world is recognizing that those who have been slinging around the word "racist" all the time, are indeed bona fide racists (in the traditional sense).

In that way, "treason" might be receiving the same treatment, use it while it has some emotional clout against their enemy, and when the word has been abused sufficiently that it no longer holds any meaning, that is when we discover the actual legal treason when the indictments start rolling out. If/When there is a day of reckoning among the coup d' etat actors, the word "treason" will only solicit a yawn.

Keep in mind that when they reference "America" anymore they are speaking with THEIR formulation of "America", which we would not recognize as America. They do not consider our version of this nation legitimate. "Treason" would be against THEIR version, that illegitimate construction we've been fighting against, not against America as founded and recognized for generations down to the present.

IIRC (I was only a kid at the time), that was the reasoning Nixon gave for resigning (before he could be impeached) and Ford gave for pardoning him -- sparing the nation any more of the "long national nightmare" of Watergate.... which in retrospect, seems to have been a walk in the park compared to this.

We go back to being a slave state that the former US has been for well over the past century.

Lincoln freed the slaves, the 16th Amendment made everyone slaves to the DC/Globalist Plantation.

117 Are you ready for the most cynical prognostication for the near future?


Well here goes...


Horowitz report is released Monday and it is a complete and total whitewash.



Lindsey Graham's judiciary committee hearing cements the theory that the LE/IC apparatus did nothing wrong and acted reasonably given....



....The findings of the totality of Obama's IC apparatus and signed off on by the GOP lead Senate "Intelligence Committee that Russia materially interfered with the 2016 election....



...The GOP controlled Senate will have simultaneously asserted that the Russians interfered with the 2016 elections and the actions of the LE/IC were reasonable in investigating and spying on the Trump campaign.



This one-two punch takes the sails out of the Barr/Durham investigation and they close up shop sometime early in the new year, just as....



The trial of President Trump starts in the Senate...



...Giving McConnell the whip hand against President Trump in being able to extract from him pretty much anything he wants in order to preserve his Presidency, The Quidest of Quid Pro Quos will ensue...



If Trump agrees to McConnell's terms, the Trump Presidency continues, if not then McConnell whips the Senate against the President and Trump becomes the first President removed from office via impeachment.



Trump agrees to McConnell's terms and we get a neutered President Trump having to dance to the uniparties tune.



We go into the election with Trump/Pence vs Biden/Abrams, Biden/Abrams are able to whip just enough of the the white working class in the rust belt and agitate just enough blacks and POC's to regain PA, WI, MI, take a couple of southern states and win the electoral college and the Presidency descively...



The Donks maintain control of the House by a couple seats, they regain the Senate by two seats, relegating McConnell to minority leader, a position he excels at as he can horse trade votes to keep the pork and spice flowing to the GOP puppet masters, which he can't do in a divided congress or with lean majorities in both chambers.



Having lost, Trump is indicted 5 minutes after Biden/Abrams is sworn in by the SDNY, arrested at his home in Mara Lago a day later and the world is treated to the image of the first mug shot of a President of the United States, Trump is tried and convicted by a NY jury, and spends the remaining days of his life in prison.



The SDNY and various other DA's spend considerable time and effort harassing his family from there on out.



The Deep State wins, the Communists win, The Uniparty wins, Civil War II goes live 2023...

Thursday is the last voting day before the Christmas break. Nancy could extend the session until the following week but I don't see it.

They are having a hearing today in Nadler's committee - Monday is not a usual business day. So they are doing that for a reason. I expect they vote the bill out of committee tomorrow to give a full day before voting in the full House on Thursday.

If someone hurts themselves on my property, our f'd up justice legal court system allows the trespasser to sue for damages and whatever else the black robed tyrant allows.

It's not propaganda, not fake news, but technically "hate speech"-- but given that it was motivation for a legitimate, heinous crime/act of war, it is NEWS that should be reported.

195 184 I like how Portland has gone Marxist and now seriously considers coercing "property owners" (now a euphemism) into accommodating drug addicts criminals - integrating their special needs into architecture.

So how does this work out when a fight breaks out, someone dies, a simple cooking fire burns down the structure, or even simple things like waste disposal?

If someone hurts themselves on my property, our f'd up justice legal court system allows the trespasser to sue for damages and whatever else the black robed tyrant allows.

How long, now that the city is cool with demanding private property owners provide some level of housing, that the same property owners now need to feed, medicate, rehabilitate and educate one or more junkies / criminals ?

It was probably based on false optimism and the expectation that someone called "Inspector General" would act with honesty and try to root out wrongdoing.

Cat manages to panic and get a claw hooked in my sock.

So there I am, with a screaming cat stuck to my sock, balancing on one foot, trying to help get the claw unstuck from my other foot. In the dark.

And how did your day start?

276 So with all that talk about fidelity to the Constitution from Nancy and crew, they've re-written it to get Trump:


The Constitution specifically defines treason
in Article III, Section 3: "Treason against the United States, shall
consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their
Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort."

The House Judiciary Committee report, however, expands that
definition to include what it calls "betrayal,"
and declares: "Although
the Framers did not intend impeachment for good faith disagreements on
matters of diplomacy, they were explicit that betrayal of the Nation
through schemes with foreign powers justified that remedy."

The phrase "schemes with foreign powers" is sufficiently vague to
include the "quid pro quo" plan that Democrats allege the president
attempted to make with Ukraine, trading U.S. aid for investigation into a
political opponent.




They are now saying negotiations with a foreign state - quid pro quo - is akin to treason. This is something every president does.

Post Kavanaugh, Graham, as head of the Senate Judciaiy committee, should have taken action on those who perjured themselves before his committee, and those who enabled it.

Instead he did nothing about it. Not one thing. He didn't have to wait on a FISA report to do anything about that.

345 I was amused, but not surprised, that the FBI was "partnering" with the USPS in seeking fingerprints.

AOSHQ posted a story 10 days or so ago about genealogy services providing their information to the government. My take is that the government already has enough DNA samples to narrow down many criminal acts to a relatively small number of people.

My college roommate and best friend recently retired after serving as ambassador to two important countries. The FBI interviewed me twice to check into his background and took my fingerprints during the first interview, which was around 1985. I've no doubt they've updated my file a number of times since then and I don't think it's too much to assume that they already have my DNA.

My beautiful wife is giving me the 23AndMe and AncestryDNA tests for Christmas. If I were in my early 20s, I wouldn't take the tests. However, I turn 60 in April and believe that the government knows more about me than I do, so I'm submitting the tests.

The place has been pretty even keeled ever since ace accepted the Golden Scalpweasel as the last best hope to saving the nation. When ace would argue in the comments and be obviously exasperated with us is when things were worst here imo and he's been on a positive roll for over three years. Plus he jokes with Jack.

That's my read on it. People can change, though..."

Jack is one of the most valuable assets here. He's a wealth of knowledge on procedure and we've all learned a lot from him. His predictions are based on the way things once were and are supposed to be, which generally isn't how things operate in the present day.

@marwilliamson
Vaccines save lives absolutely. But asking for an independent commission to review vaccine safety is not "anti-vaxx." It's "safe-vaxx," which is totally understandable given over $4B paid in vaccine injury claims. Why are so many people so invested in protecting Big Pharma? Odd.

415 The Epoch Times is independent and is owned and operated largely by Chinese nationals (ex-pats), largely in Hong Kong, Taiwan and the US. The people who own the Epoch Times are virulently anti-communist (they were part of the Nationalist forces if you go back far enough) and are sympathetic to the Falun Gong.

They are not a Taiwanese/Chinese or Falun Gong organization, though their owners are very sympathetic in that direction. Their primary thing seems to be anticommunism and surfacing human rights violations in China. They run dailies in Hong King and Taiwan, along with New York and Washington. They run a weekly for the rest of the US.

Recently, they have come out as fairly pro-Trump and virulently anti-coup, apparently because they view Trump as a holy force sent down to defeat communism.

If they do it, the reason will be (they hope) to strengthen their case with independents, and weak-minded citizens. My guesses at their private rationale:

To charge Trump with both of the impeachable crimes specifically called-out in the Constitution (He's BAD);

To charge him with impeachable crimes no President before has been charged with by the House - bribery and treason (He's REALLY BAD);

To pad the number of charges, to get the number higher than what the House charged Clinton with (four?) (He's REALLY REALLY BAD, THE WORST EVER!)

It's stupid through and through, but another stupidity is that both Judea and Egypt were Roman provinces at the time, and there were no restrictions on travel.

Speaking for my 60 plus years of evangelical, confession and repentance are a very big deal indeed. One is to always come before the Father in repentance of sin, and ask forgiveness. We believe that in doing so, He is faithful and just to forgive us of our sins, and to cleanse us of all unrighteousness.

They, in their delusions about the nature of man's relationship to power, believe they are creating heaven on Earth.

We who have no such trust in their false god can see that this is not unique or new, but a repetition of the extreme political movements of the last century, which not only created hell for their subjects, but also caused the largest war in all of history.

477 But just so I'm clear: Evangelicals don't believe in confession to remove the stain of sin, even a general group one? Because that's a BFD IMO.
Posted by: Captain Hate at December 09, 2019 09:23 AM (y7DUB)

I think it's better to say that Evangelicals and some more mainstream protestants, such as the various flavors of Baptists, do not believe that there are such things as "sacraments", a physical act which results in a theological remission of sin. (maybe there are better definitions) Theses groups are theologically descended from those known as the Anabaptists, who have been around and in opposition as long as the more orthodox beliefs have been followed.

They DO believe that Confession is a good thing to do, and is required when someone has harmed someone else.

484 The Epoch Times is independent and is owned and operated largely by Chinese nationals (ex-pats), largely in Hong Kong, Taiwan and the US. The people who own the Epoch Times are virulently anti-communist (they were part of the Nationalist forces if you go back far enough) and are sympathetic to the Falun Gong.

They are not a Taiwanese/Chinese or Falun Gong organization, though their owners are very sympathetic in that direction. Their primary thing seems to be anticommunism and surfacing human rights violations in China. They run dailies in Hong King and Taiwan, along with New York and Washington. They run a weekly for the rest of the US.

Recently, they have come out as fairly pro-Trump and virulently anti-coup, apparently because they view Trump as a holy force sent down to defeat communism.

509 But just so I'm clear: Evangelicals don't believe in confession to remove the stain of sin, even a general group one? Because that's a BFD IMO.

Protestants descend from Luther, Calvin and those who broke free from Rome, their birth is on October 31, 1517. When speaking of "Confession" it isn't the booth and a priest version, rather it is a doctrinal statement, a catechism, the denomination's systematized faith statement. Protestants, traditionally stand behind the Five Solas, and share various levels of high church.


Baptists claim their provenance from John The Baptist, so their thread doesn't go through Rome. Baptists branched about a century or so ago from roughly abiding with the 1689 London Confession of Faith, to syncretize into an Evangelical denomination.

Evangelicals are usually associated with "Big Box" since they reject orthodoxy w/r/t Election and substituted it with various forms of Pelagianism, Arminianism or rarely four points of Amyrauldism (Calvinist TULIP without the L) which focuses on Free Will decisions (Finneyism) and thus work on manipulating the masses into Heaven through outreach, programs, concerts and sanguine homilies.

Evangelicals usually are either ignorant of or hostile to the Doctrines of Grace and such Evangelicals and Reformed (traditional Protestants) don't agree on much outside of the deity, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

As far as I know, Evangelicals look at a sinner as drowning and are capable of receiving a life preserver of salvation once convinced it will indeed save them. Protestants look at the sinner as drowned and dead and needs full resuscitation.

Evangelicals believe that man comes to salvation by his own free will, Protestants say a man is dragged in to salvation kicking and screaming in protest.

Most recently he said the IG writes the conclusions to the IG reports, which makes sense, but when the mid year exam IG report came out he jumped on that the IG didn't write the conclusion to that report (because that conclusion was a whitewash).

Then it was "wait for the FISA IG report" , which has now been going on for a year and a half! And now we are getting "the IG is limited".

Quote II

“We sincerely apologize to this child and her family and will be taking immediate disciplinary action against the person responsible.” Lisa Kinney, DOC Spokesperson

Quote IV

"The Internet as we know it was developed by taxpayer-funded research, using taxpayer-funded grants in taxpayer-funded labs.

Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) is a scuzzy POS. It's bad enough he is proceeding with this sham impeachment of POTUS Trump. Now, he's sowing seeds of doubt about the election results.

After three years of using trumped-up allegations of Russian collusion to try and stymie President Donald Trump’s agenda, it appears congressional Democrats are scheming to pull the same stunt again in case the president wins reelection next year.

It’s hard to draw any other conclusion given the recent rhetoric of the party’s top figures, including House Judiciary Committee chair Jerry Nadler.

Speaking Sunday morning on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” he accused the president of posing “a threat to our election” and suggested that, if ultimately acquitted by the Senate, Trump “will do everything he can to make it not make it a fair election.”

The Ace of Spades Cob Dental Plan is second to none. I'm hoping this guy isn't our In-Network Provider.

In Alaska, a dentist is accused of fraud, unnecessarily sedating patients, and performing a dental procedure on a woman while riding a wheeled, motorized hoverboard, authorities say.

Seth Lookhart, 34, is charged with felony Medicaid fraud and reckless endangerment.

From AP:

A former patient testified Wednesday at his trial that she was angered when an investigator showed her an unauthorized 2016 video of Lookhart extracting one of her teeth while she was sedated and he was riding the hoverboard. Veronica Wilhelm was “pretty livid” about the dentist’s actions, she testified.

“When did Dr. Lookhart get your approval to take out your tooth on a hoverboard,” prosecutor Joan Wilson asked in court.

A slow weekend. President Trump trolling like a champ.

WASHINGTON, D.C.—There wasn't much happening in the world today, so Trump simply sat at his desk looking for something to do.

Then he got an idea. Picking up his desk phone, he dialed a number and waited for the man on the other end to pick up.

Meanwhile, Colin Kaepernick was sitting around nervously waiting for his phone to ring at long last. As his ringtone, the USSR anthem, began to play, Kaepernick lunged for the phone and picked up on the first ring. "Hello?" he said, attempting to sound casual.

"Hi, uh, yes, is this a Mr. Kaepernick?" Trump said, stifling laughter.

"Yeah, it's me. Who's this?" Kaepernick said, trying not to get his hopes up.

A cold snap may put a freeze on French fries as farmers deal with smaller potato crops this year.

From an extended rainy period in the Red River Valley of North Dakota, to an early frost in Idaho, weather negatively affected the harvesting of potatoes, reducing the expected haul in the U.S. by 6% as compared to 2018, according to the Department of Agriculture.

As of early November, only 73% of total crops had been harvested.

Cierra Brown estimates her commute to work would only take about 25 minutes if she had a car. That’s part of the reason she returned to McDonald’s in January: Her car had broken down and she needed money. But at McDonald’s, Brown only earns $9.50 per hour as a cashier, which barely helps cover rent and is far from enough to solve her vehicular woes. Without a car, one of Brown’s main headaches is getting to work. Her typical bus commute to McDonald’s takes as long as two hours each way.

I joined the Fight for $15 and a Union because I’ve worked in the fast food industry for 14 years—about half my life—and all these jobs have a few things in common. They all paid poverty wages.

And the only way we'll create change in these jobs is workers coming together and demanding it.

I'm pretty simplistic when it comes to art. This is simple, but it isn't for me. Is it for you?

Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan’s latest provocation, a sculptural intervention that consists of a banana duct-taped to the wall of Perrotin’s booth at Art Basel in Miami Beach, has been sold. The work, titled Comedian (2019), had been priced at $120,000; like most of Cattelan’s works, it exists in an edition of three, plus two artist’s proofs. Two of the three editions of Comedian had been sold by Wednesday afternoon, and according to a Perrotin rep, the gallery is “currently speaking with a museum that wants to acquire the third.” The work comes with a certificate of authenticity, and owners of the work replace the banana as they see fit.

Well that didn't take long. Buh-bye art.

Is it alright to tell your children there is a Santa Claus?

In general, we try to be pretty honest people. I mean we're journalists. But when it comes to Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the tooth fairy, or whatever it is in your family ... is it bad to lie to your kids to keep the magic alive?

Cory's gotten deep into the Santa ruse: setting out the reindeer snack, calling into the Santa tracker on Christmas Eve. Anya wrote notes impersonating the Tooth Fairy and when that didn't work, she even set up a phone call! The con has gotten really long, and the kids might be on to us. We know we're not alone.

Here are four tips for handling that awkward moment when your kids start doubting the world of magic. Luckily Rosemarie Truglio, a childhood development specialist and senior vice president of Education and Research at Sesame Workshop, is going to help us figure out how — and how long — to keep the magic alive.

'Alcohol may have saved humanity from extinction, scientists claim'

Humanity’s ancestors may have been saved from extinction by alcohol, scientists have suggested

In a new book, called Alcohol And Humans: A Long And Social Affair, professors Dr Kim Hockings and Dr Robin Dunbar say that African apes who lived around 10 million years ago evolved to metabolise ethanol, the chemical compound in alcohol.

These primates eventually gave rise not only to humans but also to chimps, bonobos and gorillas, all of which share the ability to break down booze. The common ape ancestor evolved to carry a protein that made metabolising ethanol more efficient, which allowed them to eat overripe fermented fruits that fell on the ground.

According to Dr Hockings and Dr Dunbar, these primates were in competition for survival with rival monkey species who were able to eat unripe fruit that was still on plants.

I don't know about extinction, sure has kept the advertising firms in cash.

Do you have someone hard to shop for on your Christmas gift list? Do you have money burning a hole in your bucket? Oh boy does The ONT have the gift for you.

An average mug costs between $5 and $10, while a nice travel mug goes for around $20, or maybe a little more if you’re feeling fancy. So how on earth does a company justify a smart mug that costs a whopping $180?

While it might sound outlandish, this question isn’t purely hypothetical, because thanks to the Ember’s second-gen Travel Mug, the value of a $180 smart mug is something that actually needs to be examined. So what makes this travel mug so smart?

12 These primates eventually gave rise not only to humans but also to chimps, bonobos and gorillas, all of which share the ability to break down booze. The common ape ancestor evolved to carry a protein that made metabolising ethanol more efficient, which allowed them to eat overripe fermented fruits that fell on the ground.

So the Pygmy Marmosets got pretty much screwed then, right?

According to the award-winning actress, climate change will affect the globe so much that people may have to resort to eating their pets because of catastrophic food shortages and weather emergencies.

27 So, totally OT but it's an open thread, so...

I was watching a program from 1986 about education and technology. There was one little segment with a woman who ran the technology for an under-performing school in the San Francisco inner city. It underscores just how profoundly stupid so very many education policies and funding decisions are, and for how long this has been true.

We have two computer labs. We have one computer lab that was purchased through federal funding, and that was specifically for the low socioeconomic students that had low test scores. ... I realized that 80% of our population were using these computers, but 20% couldn't because their scores were too high. ... In our school, they have been very helpful the remedial [case], and like I said, we had 80% of students who had been using them and there scores have gone up so now it's 50%.

She goes on to talk about whipping up more grant money to furnish a lab for the normal or high achievers, since they were forbidden by policy from using the equipment furnished for struggling students.

Mind-boggling.

28 Hey everybody.

Since there wasn't a movie thread this weekend, I wanted to ask everyone, has anyone here seen the movie "A Ghost Story"? It came out about two years ago I believe, and stars Casey Affleck (who's under a sheet almost the entire movie) and Rooney Mara. Supposedly there's very little dialogue in the entire film.

I read about it this past weekend. It sounds very interesting, but also very sad.

In the book industry, wholesalers and publishers had sites, but the wholesalers required a password and an account, and publishers blushed their books and gave the PRC.

50 The "Fight for 15" crowd needs to be very careful what it wishes for.

Have they seen the interest rates and capital markets lately? Ever since the Great Recession, access to capital has been very easy (indeed, too easy) for blue chips. An automatic burger joint is possible. It has been demonstrated. It actually works fairly well. The problem is the cost of the machines. At $10 an hour for the employees, the machines don't make sense.

Up that by half, factor in low interest rates and easy money for major corps, and you're gonna see fast food automation almost faster than you can blink.

I had a friend from Connecticut who moved to Brooklyn with some other friends. I visited them and for breakfast, we went to a soul food restaurant. They had grits on the menu. I ordered them. They were good.

She had heard of grits, but never tried them. She tried some of mine. She did that thing you do with grits (munge them, I guess - you don't chew 'em).

She sat silently for about 15 seconds and said, "Well, we don't have *that* in New England."

137 A cold snap may put a freeze on French fries as farmers deal with smaller potato crops this year.
From an extended rainy period in the Red River Valley of North Dakota, to an early frost in Idaho, weather negatively affected the harvesting of potatoes, reducing the expected haul in the U.S. by 6% as compared to 2018, according to the Department of Agriculture.

As of early November, only 73% of total crops had been harvested.

In Idaho, the state that grows one-third of all potatoes produced in the U.S., a freeze hit between Oct. 9 and 11.

147 Katie Hill contemplated suicide after nude pictures of her surface on the internet:

https://tinyurl.com/tj4pohw

A a person who has been affected by clinical depression I have empathy and sympathy for anyone affected by that terrible disease. Too many people leave gaping whole in the lives of others-even in the lives of people who may only know them slightly when they take their lives. However, it was a terrible idea forHill to get into relationship with staffers and think that was o.k., I also think it's nutty for anyone in the internet to take nude pictures of themselves by their phone and think it won't end up with someone seeing. I am glad I grew up before the internet and the stupidest picture of me is probably one where I was dressed as flower for a kids show, or just generally bad pictures because I'm not photogenic and plain.

I'm also not sure whether I believe that Nancy Pelosi thought that Hill should stay in Congress and leaving was entirely Hill's won idea. There's a bit of a victim mentality on the part of Hill here

P.S. The holidays are often terrible times for people. So many losses to deal with, so if you're thinking of suicide please get help now.

Both Clinton and Obama took huge losses in the House in their first midterm election, and got reelected anyway.

Fun fact: the President's party has controlled the House after a midterm election only once since 1978 - Bush managed it in 2002. I guess we have to be worried about 2022, then.

Cashier: "It would be my pleasure. Could you please show me your ID?"

Nadler :"Truthfully, I did not bring my ID with me as I didn't think there was any need to. I am Jerry Nadler, a Democrat in Congress.

Cashier: "Yes, I know who you are, but with all the regulations and monitoring of the banks because of impostors and forgers and all those requirements of the legislation,  etc., I must insist on seeing ID."

Nadler: Just ask anyone here at the bank who I am and they will tell you. Everybody knows who I am."

Cashier: "I am sorry, Mr Nadler, but these are the bank rules and I must follow them."

Nadler: "Come on please, I am urging you, please cash this check."

Cashier: "Look sir, here is an example of what we can do. One day, Tiger Woods came into the bank without ID. To prove he was Tiger Woods he pulled out his putter  and made a beautiful shot across the bank into a cup. With that shot we knew him to be Tiger Woods and cashed his check."

"Another time, Andre Agassi came in without ID. He pulled out his tennis racket and made a fabulous shot where the tennis ball landed in my cup. With that shot  we cashed his check. So, sir, what can you do to prove that it is you and only you?"

Nadler stands there thinking and thinking and finally says, "Honestly, my mind is a total blank...there is nothing that comes to my mind. I can't think of a  single thing. I have absolutely no idea what to do. I don't have a clue."

In Hill's NYT essay/article, she stopped JUST short of comparing herself to Christ suffering on the cross.

It brought "tackiness" to a new zenith! It will be a helluva challenge to surpass it. Tacky; tawdry; whiny; self-pitying-- I think that covers it.

I got the tree up today. Putting up a tree by myself is hard emotionally. I considered asking my "block husband" to help, but he was out toiling in his yard. But we went out to dinner and had a great time, so not a terrible day entirely.

If she was not good for the charge of having had sex with a staffer, then she should've contested the unfounded ethics violation allegation! Instead... she resigned. Draw your own conclusion as to her guilt or innocence, based on that

Bravo Company produces straight-up .Mil-Spec parts and builds. Materials meet spec in all respects. Quality Control meets spec in all respects. Tolerances meet spec in all respects.

Avoid Bushmaster like the plague. Ownership changes leave you not knowing the era-of-build without deep research, and yes, they had some bad years in there.

Best QUALITY entry-llevel ARs these days, by reputation, are the S&W M&P 15 series, and Ruger SR series.

Palmetto's reputation is steadily improving, but I don't know that they're up to the Big Game in stature as yet.

I told him that I would never publish personal information in a public venue. I wouldn't put my ugly mug, address and phone number up on a billboard, so why the hell would I publish it online?

256 One of my friends at FB posted some pics of Lucille Ball from the 1940s.

It's interesting to see pics of Lucy from that time, as well as the 1930s. The studios kept trying to market her as a femme fatale, and her breakthrough came when she played a NYC housewife.

277 So I want to share a nice little story from the church I serve. There's a nice guy there married to our wonderful pianist who is retired and works for free. They don't have any children, But for about 10 years he has been playing Santa Claus for a local church and for the Senior Citizens who bring their grandchildren. I think it's wonderful that he enjoys kids so much that he is willing to do that, and no he is not a perv, and playing Santa is done with many people around him. He gets so much joy from the kids and the sometimes funny things they say. It is an added blessing because he had a dark period of depression lately and came out of it with new medications and was feeling so much better and able to do that, thanks be to God

Her Majesty's new knee works fine. Her ROM is largely returned. The problem is that all the surrounding muscles and tendons got altered before to accommodate her old knee. In consequence she has to learn to walk right again. She should have had it done years ago.

That's very sweet. I served plates one year at a dinner for families of veterans where parents had submitted requests in advance for gifts their kids wanted. Santa passed out all the gifts and this one particular little girl, such a little beauty and sweetie, was trying to get his attention as he was finally leaving with his now-empty bag but he was mobbed by kids, and she absolutely wilted as he got to the door. I got behind her and rushed her to the door and said "Ask him, ask him your question."

She got to him and said all happy-eyed, "Santa Claus, how did you know I wanted a guitar?"

He leaned down with a smile and said, "Because, I'm *Santa*!"

Her eyes lit up even more and she came back in dazedly happy with her toy guitar and her answer.

Anywho (which is a word that our organist sometimes says) after apaslo kindly filled in for me for several months (thnk you, dear!), I think I'd ready to resume the prayer list, so please send any prayer requests, praise reports or updates to me by Monday evening EST. I am moving up the deadline. And if you see anyone who is requesting prayers please tell them to contact me, or forward it to me at FenelonDirection18 at sign gmail.com. I can't see all the requests and some people may not want to have it public which I understand but I can' t here all the time even if it seems like a I am so if I nobody tells me and I don't see it it won't be on the list. Please note: I DO NOT give any anyone's personal e-mail info to anyone else.

P.S. I will be removing some items that don't have any date simply because of space concerns

Prayers matters! Keep calm and keep on praying

BTW, today's sign outside the church says "Pray for the healing for our nation." Someone on here came up with that I thought it was a good suggestion.

330 For the last 25 years or so I've been a volunteer usher at the Shakespeare Theatre Company in DC. In all those years Michael Kahn was the artistic director for the theater and he usually directed one or two shows each season. Now I'm sure Michael Kahn is a leftist, but the shows were generally politics-free. Sure, in 25 years there were a few plays where the guest director tried to put a political spin on it, but I rarely felt that I was being hit over the head with leftist politics.

Last year Michael Kahn retired and now there's a new director, Simon Godwin, a Brit, and I'm concerned.

Last night's play was "Peter Pan and Wendy". This was not JM Barrie's "Peter Pan." It's a 're-imagining' by Lauren Gunderson. Now it's been a long time since I've seen the original "Peter Pan", so it's probably true that the play needs some updating when it comes to Tiger Lily and the other Indians, but do we really need a "Peter Pan" where Wendy, Tiger Lily, and Tinkerbell shout out "Girl Power!"? No, we do not. Do we need a "Peter Pan" where Peter promises to return Neverland to Tiger Lily and apologizes for colonialism? No, we do not.

The actress who played Tiger Lily is Native American, but Wendy and Michael Darling and most of the Lost Boys were African American. I don't have a problem with color-blind casting, but if it's important to have a Native American actress for Tiger Lily, shouldn't it also be important to have Caucasian actors for the British characters? If you're going to go with a color-blind cast, then why bother with British accents?

One highlight of the play was that Nana was played by a real dog, a rescue dog that looked like a big golden doodle. Sadly, Nana was only in the first scene.

So I'm concerned.

"I would like to congratulate all of the people in Houston and around the world who contributed to the launch, navigation and capture of Dragon," station commander Luca Parmitano of the European Space Agency said after capturing Dragon with the outpost's robotic arm. "They must know that whenever we welcome a new vehicle on board, we take on board also a little piece of the soul of everyone that contributed to the project. So, welcome on board."

That could make for confusing distress calls if they're asked to "say souls on board".

350 Do we need a "Peter Pan" where Peter promises to return Neverland to Tiger Lily and apologizes for colonialism? No, we do not.

I went to the Oregon Symphony last night. Before the Prokofiev symphony that everyone had actually come for, they had a second-rate balladeer (who is the Oregon Symphony's "creative artist in residence" or something) sing a bunch of left-wing songs, with orchestral accompaniment.

One of the songs was about how black people still have to worry about being lynched by white people in Mississippi; and another song was about his Jewish grandmother fleeing Nazi Germany, and having problems getting into the United States.

He, of course, said that American resistance to Jews emigrating to the United States in 1939 was just the same thing as American resistance to "asylees" emigrating to the United States today. Because a Salvadorian emigrating to the United States for economic reasons, and claiming to be oppressed in El Salvador, is just like a Jew fleeing Nazi Germany. Way to minimize the Holocaust, jerk.

You're right - this sort of Left-wing agitprop in cultural settings is becoming all-pervasive.

The Oregon Symphony invariably plays the "new music" (frequently, to meet their diversity quotas for composers) before intermission, and the real symphonic music after intermission. I guess they're worried that people would simply walk out at intermission if they played the real music first.

I've wondered if anyone is starting to show up at intermission, to avoid the diversity music, but they started with a short Beethoven piece first last night to defeat that.

363 To Mikeyg in re your next gun purchase -

Have you considered an 80% lower? Cost is somewhere between $80 and $120 for the lower which you complete with a drill press or router; they come in aluminum or polymer. Once you complete the lower, you add the fire control group, a stock, and an upper to complete it. You'll learn a lot about how your gun works, can customize each component to your liking, and upgrade each component later as interest and budget permit.

Also, no waiting period or background check, if that matters...

376 I think it is referred to as "walking music" They put it at the beginning and very end so people can still walk in and leave early.

Nope - the Oregon Symphony tends to embed the diversity music in the middle of the program, so it is hard to avoid.

I'm irritated because the symphony is usually 50% diversity/ 50% real music before intermission, and 100% real music after intermission. Usually, if they play an 18 minute masterwork from a left-handed Latina lesbian composer, they think that they've checked the diversity box for the concert.

And left my Kilt the CoB knows where,
And carried half way home, or near,
Pints and quarts of half-cold beer:

And I myself a sterling lad;
And down in lovely muck I've lain,
Happy till JJ woke again.

I will be fair and say something nice about Nikki Haley.

While she became Christian and changed her name from Radha to Nikki as a teenager, her parents did not feel it necessary to do any honor killing. Cool parents.

The parents are Sikhs, run a successful clothing business, and are leaders in the Sikh Temple (not many in SC, I guess theirs is the main one.

Haley is an accountant by trade and training, like Papa Miklos, the 40 Year Calvinist Deacon.

Haley and my father and a couple of others gave their time and knowledge to give tax advice to religious organizations of whatever kind, when the Obama IRS was very threatening to them.

And yes, religion based non-profits were under threat.

Every morning we pray for the safety of school and any bus drivers and that they would get to the schools safely and back home and for safety for kids in schools.. Today Spouse prayed for patience and strength, He enjoys the kids but they get more shrieky as the holiday and break approaches, as you know.

The Hong Kong protesters get it. But what I worry about is a Deep State approach to learn how to be resistant to pressure from deplorables.

What can we learn from their efforts to keep America a Constitutional country? We need to be smarter. Having weapons is key to let self-governed citizens act as the feedback mechanism of last resort to keep very bad things happening.

Right now it appears that the leaders do not accept any common sense direction from the people that supposedly represent.

506 So Ms Lindsey has declared he will not allow Schiff, the whistle blower or the Biden's to testify in a Senate trial.

But the Donks can call whoever they want?


And you aren't going to use the Senate trial to exact a blood penalty from the Democrats for putting the President and the country through three years of hell?

524 Are you ready for the most cynical prognostication for the near future?

Well here goes...


Horowitz report is released Monday and it is a complete and total whitewash.


Lindsey Graham's judiciary committee hearing cements the theory that the LE/IC apparatus did nothing wrong and acted reasonably given....


....The findings of the totality of Obama's IC apparatus and signed off on by the GOP lead Senate "Intelligence Committee that Russia materially interfered with the 2016 election....


...The GOP controlled Senate will have simultaneously asserted that the Russians interfered with the 2016 elections and the actions of the LE/IC were reasonable in investigating and spying on the Trump campaign.


This one-two punch takes the sails out of the Barr/Durham investigation and they close up shop sometime early in the new year, just as....


The trial of President Trump starts in the Senate...


...Giving McConnell the whip hand against President Trump in being able to extract from him pretty much anything he wants in order to preserve his Presidency, The Quidest of Quid Pro Quos will ensue...


If Trump agrees to McConnell's terms, the Trump Presidency continues, if not then McConnell whips the Senate against the President and Trump becomes the first President removed from office via impeachment.


Trump agrees to McConnell's terms and we get a neutered President Trump having to dance to the uniparties tune.


We go into the election with Trump/Pence vs Biden/Abrams, Biden/Abrams are able to whip just enough of the the white working class in the rust belt and agitate just enough blacks and POC's to regain PA, WI, MI, take a couple of southern states and win the electoral college and the Presidency descively...


The Donks maintain control of the House by a couple seats, they regain the Senate by two seats, relegating McConnell to minority leader, a position he excels at as he can horse trade votes to keep the pork and spice flowing to the GOP puppet masters, which he can't do in a divided congress or with lean majorities in both chambers.


Having lost, Trump is indicted 5 minutes after Biden/Abrams is sworn in by the SDNY, arrested at his home in Mara Lago a day later and the world is treated to the image of the first mug shot of a President of the United States, Trump is tried and convicted by a NY jury, and spends the remaining days of his life in prison.


The SDNY and various other DA's spend considerable time and effort harassing his family from there on out.


The Deep State wins, the Communists win, The Uniparty wins, Civil War II goes live 2023...

526 Guys, my mother loves the simple pleasures of reading the morning paper with a cup of coffee. But the Detroit News/Free Press is a shadow of its former self, gutted by leftist rot. It used to have great local columnists; now, mostly recycled mainstream "news". It's all race/class/gender, even in (or especially in) the Lifestyle section (in the cooking section, I noticed an uptick in "plant-based", my new favorite thing to hate).

Is there a decent paper out there?

Gun Thread: After Thanksgiving and Before Christmas Edition [Weasel]

christmas ar scaled.jpg
note asymmetrical hand size

Can you believe Thanksgiving is already in the rear-view mirror and Christmas is coming up fast? I don't know about you all but this year has been flying by for me. While you're out shopping for others, how about getting yourself a little something, too? Or even a big something! Here's a question, what one shooting related item would you like to find under the tree on Christmas morning? I'm talking about the one thing you've always wanted but have never managed, for one reason or another, to get for yourself?

Let's take a look below and see what our moron pals have been up to, shall we?

Well here's a nice stocking stuffer sent in by a lurker.

I saw last Sunday's post about the dry fire laser. I highly recommend the below product, DryFireMag, which eliminates the need the rack the slide for trigger reset. Just insert like a regular magazine and go to town. I use it with the MantisX system and have seen incredible results.

DFM scaled.jpg

That's a nifty little gizmo, and at $99 not a bad deal. What do you all think? Anyone else have one? Thanks for the product endorsement, lurker, and feel free to jump in and comment anytime!

******

Our pal Scuba_Dude is definitely putting his new NYC firearms license to use by taking every opportunity to get to the range!

Here are some pics of a day at the range. My target is on the right and my nephews is on the left. I had the target at around 7 - 9 yards. Gun used was my Sig P226 RX using only the iron sights. Ammo was Blazer 115 grain FMJ. 90 rounds used.

S_D 2 scaled.jpg

S_D 1 scaled.jpg

I think those are probably Birchwood Casey six-inch Shoot-N-C stick on targets, and I have to say that at 20+ feet Scuba_Dude is doing just fine from a self-defense prospective. Nice shooting!

Scuba_Dude also went on to mention that he has registered for a couple of pistol courses at the Sig Sauer Academy in Epping, NH, in the late spring of next year and has graciously agreed to grant the Gun Thread an exclusive report afterwards. Thanks Scuba_Dude, can't wait to hear all about it!

******

Next we have a follow-up report from our pal WTM in Texas. Last week WTM shared photos from a visit to the The Bryan Museum in Galveston, TX, and this week he has a report from The Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum in Waco, TX.

I have also been to the Texas Rangers Museum in Waco, TX., and here is a tiny fraction of what they have on display. The museum has many hundreds of Ranger firearms on display, ranging from the lever action rifles and SA revolvers of the Rangers’ early days through the weapons used in the 1960’s. I didn’t get photos of those, unfortunately, but they must have two hundred lever action rifles alone in one display. There is a large section devoted to law enforcement in the 1930’s, and therein is a very nice display on Bonnie and Clyde. My maternal grandparents knew Bonnie and Clyde, and my grandfather was probably the one who customized Clyde’s sedan so as to allow use of a BAR through the rear window.

BTW, all automatic weapons seen here and in the museum are fully functional, except that their firing pins have been removed.

So how cool is it that WTM's grandparents knew Bonnie and Clyde? Thanks WTM!

Next up we have a great range report from our pal Iron Mike Golf

Tomorrow is opening day of whitetail gun season here in Ohio and a family tradition is for the menfolk to go over to my B-I-L's on Sat after Thanksgiving and confirm zero. Wyatt (Grandson the Elder) has been pestering me to go deer hunting this year. He turned 9 in Oct. I got him a 22 (a Rascal), but my back has been in poor shape and had't taken him for any shooting yet. After Thanksgiving dinner, my B-I-L said he was getting ready to sell the Mossberg 500 Youth model in 20 ga his son used while growing up (he's in college now. B-I-L got him a full sized 12 ga semi and the proceeds from the 20 ga are retroactively applied to the new piece). While the others took turns shooting, Wyatt was learning and dry firing the Mossberg. It's too much gun for him to shoulder or even shoot sitting. B-I-L's target berm is down slope, so prone was out, too. I ended up using my range bag atop an archery target so Wyatt could shoot sitting behind that as a rest. He only took 2 shots (not used to the recoil yet) and the attached photo shows his results at 50 yards. Those are his first from any firearm. Yeah, I am proud.

IMG 1 scaled.jpg

Great shooting, Wyatt! OK, I don't know about you all, but I think introducing a youngster to shooting for the first time is just about the best thing you can do. Do you have any young people, whether related or not, that you can take to the range? Thanks for sharing this outstanding story, Iron Mike Golf!

******

I'm pretty handy, but have never attempted anything like this! Our pal DBCooper has created a very cool shop, as the photos below will show. DBCooper explains:

Got to thinking that a lot of the Horde have mentioned not having a shop or many have run out of room for things. I took a 20 foot Shipping container and with simple techniques and skills and stuff from Home Depot built an extra shop. 4 inch foam insulation then hard faced, wiring and power strips installed, overhead 4 foot lights, cheap linoleum floor. Has water, a sink, phone and a 110 RV A/C and heater. Runs on a 20 amp 110. I built a 1000 lb inner armored wall with a Sea Door so it has a double locking entrance and is plenty secure. The photos were taken before the unfortunate canoe accident and now it's filled with rakes and weedeaters and shovels and my push mower. Wish now I had made a 40 footer for all my garden tools but I don't have a ton of money in it and it's my favorite place to hang out.

Shop 1 scaled.jpg

Shop 2 scaled.jpg

Shop 3 scaled.jpg

Shop 4 scaled.jpg

Ho-Lee-Shit! What a great job! I'm pretty impressed with how this turned out, and it makes me wonder if there would be a market for storage container conversions. Very nicely done, DBCooper!!

******

Link-O-Rama

Naturally, everything seems to be on sale at this time of year. Now is the time to do some shopping. Whether it's a gun you've been wanting, or an accessory you have needed, now is the time to save some money. I'm going to keep saying this until every last one of you pays attention, you almost certainly do not have enough ammo.

I Merry Christmased myself a little early this year and got one of those oh-so-trendy wet tumblers. Done about 4, 4lb. batches of .45 so far and it works really well. I need to figure out the technique a bit so as to not use so much water for rinsing and also to work out a good method for drying.

42 This week, I do my initial cleaning (recommended in the owner's manual) of my brand new Sig P365. First gun! Two people at church today invited me to participate in the community gun culture - - one offered to walk me through the cleaning process and the other offered to include me in their family's target practice! (Our church's OPSEC is really bad.) I just gotta get my final exam studying out of the way first.

Also, I learned something about the P365 that will improve my aim. I found out I'm supposed to cover the target spot with the dot on the front sight. I had been aiming so that the top edge of the front sight cut the target in half, so my shots were a little low.

Thanks to all you gun nuts for nudging me along. I finally did it!

Gotta look into that dry-fire mag thinnger up yonder.


Have a big backlog of brass prep to do. I only separate brass prep from reloading [on a turret press] for 3 calibers that require either lube, or trimming, or both [9mm, 30 carbine, 30-06]. Was going to try out the home-made lube recipes using lanolin/alcohol, but I've got some Lee lube to use up, then the Imperial wax, which looks like it will last an entire lifetime. Also, new this time, Imperial neck lube [the graphite in the media thing you stick the mouth down into], which will avoid at least one bit of drudgery with the 30-06.

67 O/T: actor Rene Auberjonois is mort from metastatic lung cancer at age 79. RIP.


From a bio: In 1970, Auberjonois played Father John Mulcahy, the military chaplain who played straight man to the doctors' antics, in M*A*S*H. It was his first significant film role and the first of several for director Robert Altman.


In his most famous exchange from the movie, Sally Kellerman's Margaret Houlihan wonders how such a degenerate doctor as Donald Sutherland's Hawkeye Pierce could reach a position of responsibility in the U.S. Army.


A bible-reading Auberjonois responds, deadpan: "He was drafted."

"I actually made that line up when we were rehearsing the scene," Auberjonois said on the podcast The Gist in 2016. "And it became a kind of an iconic line for the whole film."

72 Finally got the new Smith Bodyguard 39 special to the range and I'm pleased. Yeah, the trigger is heavy but manageable. Using Winchester white box 130 grain FMJ ammo (not my favorite) I was able to keep 2 to 3 inch groups at ten yards and the shots were close to center. Recoil was surprisingly controlable. Oddly, the better groups were done rapid fire.

For a 14 ounce snubby DA only, I am very pleased and reassured. It's only five shots but now I know they will go where I want if needed.

Wearing tactical clothing built for carrying just advertises that you are carrying.

82 This week was the first time I got the Nambu Type 94 out to the range. The one I have was made in 1936 from what I can tell. Funny little pistol, the Japs made it for their air and tank crews as it is small and has small grips for small handed fellas. Chambered in 8 mm Nambu, it's like a .380 ACP with a lot less oomph.

It also has the reputation as the worst combat handgun ever made by anyone and with good reason. The trigger sear bar is exposed on the side of the pistol so you can shoot it with the trigger sear bar press or with the standard trigger pull. I didn't try this trick at the range though.

Sights are pretty crappy too. But when I shot it, it ran well and was accurate out to 40 feet. Light recoil and the trigger is actually nice and light and crisp.

Uses a funny rising block action, but it's Japanese so what the hell. A simple blow back would have accomplished the same thing.

Banzai!

D.B. Cooper's Execution of the Concept absolutely rocks it, though!

I'll add my keyboard to the chorus of compliments on the space planning. But you know what else shines in those photos?

Superior Craftsmanship. Sure, it's simple tables and shelves (looks furtively 'round for Ace), but there's not one bit of "wood-butchery" to be seen.

Everything is square, level and true.

Know what else impresses in there. That's a big Dillon 550 or 650 press over there in the back corner of things. We're talkin' damn near full on commercial ammo factory.

And that's only ONE of several presses visible on and under the worktops.

Question for D.B. How've you treated the exterior, both as to weatherproofing, but also as to "putting-off" the eyes of the curious?

98 Under the tree. Either a CZ-75, or the rest of the components to build the AR [that would be almost all of them]. Having a few cases of ammo, reloading dies, case gauge, trimmer attachments, and components [brass and bullets and primers] for a caliber you don't own yet isn't a sign of illness, right?

Without getting into the crossbow/longbow argument about AK vs. AR (I prefer AK)...

The AK was designed so that even a peasant child could use it effectively. And, for the Serbian tactical version I have, I designed a super-comfortable buttpad made of silicone mattress-topper (and Gorilla Tape). A small boy can shoot it comfortably, in the extended or pistol-grip configuration.

I think it's probably a solid training-rifle.

120 Had an interesting day at the range.

Mark and I have been trying to do more than stand and make holes in the middle of a stationary target.

We went to the woods a couple of weeks ago and did some move and shoot at targets at different distances and with obstacles. The targets weren't moving, but we were.

It was all very choreographed. I could count my steps and my shots and know exactly what the next target was.

Yesterday, we numbered our targets and called them out to each other randomly. I had more trouble with this exercise. I had to listen, process, move, sight and then shoot.

Fascinating.

AR-15 in 350 Legend.

I had just finished initial zero (50 yds) a few hours earlier. I said, "C'mere, you!" Cinched the 2 point sling to minimum and checked Length of Pull. Good to go. "Here, put this on, muzzle downwards." A few inches clearance, so he can carry it on trails.

We'll go shooting one or two evenings over the next 2 weeks. Taking him out for deer hunting the weekend of the 21st.

I'll probably take either a 1911 patterned 10mm or a Blackhawk in 41 Mag, since I know I'll end up carrying the AR some of the time.

137 JB - if the gun fits and you like it - buy it [after inspection naturally].


freaked - ammoseek.com - always, first step when ammo shopping online. At the moment, they show several inexpensive remanufactured [factory reload] options. You can specify brass case, new, etc. Always note the shipping cost item on the right - this varies greatly between vendors, often making the difference in best price.


And SGAmmo in OK often turns out to be the best. Their shipping is cheap and their service is great. TargetSportsUSA usually has free shipping for case lots. Many good options, and ammo is in a cheap phase, so stack 'em high.

150 And don't get me started on the impossibility of pocket carry for women. The front pockets of my jeans are 4 inches deep. Back pockets are 5 inches.

Wearing tactical clothing built for carrying just advertises that you are carrying.

Anyway, is modern clothing designed to make it harder to conceal a weapon?
Posted by: Emmie at December 08, 2019 07:28 PM (87gB3)


Think about carrying somewhere besides the pocket. Inside the waistband (IWB) is a popular option. Some IWB holsters are slim and don't add much to the pistol's dimensions, others have breathable pads and two belt loops to help spread the weight and reduce irritation. There are even tuckable options where you can tuck a shirt in over the gun, behind the waistband. Another solution is cover garments, like loose shirts or sweaters that help break up the outline and keep it from printing.

This is what I use. I can tuck a button-down shirt in normally and it doesn't look any different from the other side where the shirt is bloused out a little from the belt just from moving around.

My first firearm I shot was a Remington .30-06 bolt-action. It was SUPER cool for me. But it hurt like hell. I figure once the boy gets used to an AK-47, then he can play with Big Stuff.

When I first tried the AR-15, I was afraid of the kick, until I tried it, and found out it was nothing, though.

Maybe that's the way to go. Do the big stuff first.

Can't speak to the .380.

But I had the .40 Thunder (a Chanukah gift from my dear old mom), that was fantastic. It was basically like a Beretta, but better built and more reliable.

Then my girlfriend's house got robbed while we were on vacation, the thieves got it, and then the police who caught them refused to give it back.

I really loved that gun.

Had one and traded it. Watch for magazine issues. If you can put 200 rounds through without errors, you got a good one.

If you want a .380, Springfield Armory and Smith and Wesson make good ones. The Glock 42 is a wee pocket pistol, which may or may not work for folks, size wise.

Te ghetto mode shooting style is great when you're establishing dominance in the hood. The more sideways you are, the more important you are in the hood.
Back when I lived in Savannah Stan, Crack Head Brad would sing rap songs about me and my Glock 17 that I open carried on dog walks.

I once had a guy put his hand on my hip, a few of us were praying together, and it landed right on my 1911.

Needless to say, I moved his hand up as unobtrusively as possibly.

I kidney IWB carry and I'm really careful about how I hug people. But, at 6' 3", I generally have to lean over which makes it easy to avoid someone finding something I'd rather they didn't.

Though, I was at a family gathering and got a side hug and SIL sad, loudly, "he's heeled" just like *insert name of nephew.*

It was amusing but, gun family, so, not like anyone freaked out or anything.

253 > have you been to the range?

Yes!
Was on I-40 (New Mexico) and saw the billboard for Mags gun shop/range. They rent guns. Took the opportunity to try out a Glock 42 and 43.

Was my first time firing sub-compact pistols. They both worked well but I thought the 42 (a .380) had a nicer trigger and was easier to handle - even though the grip wasn't long enough for my pinky. My pinky fit on the 43 but the 42 was still better for me.

But I'd be happy with either so far as using them for self-defense.

Now I'm wondering how to choose between them. There's a lot of competition in the subcompact single-stack auto market but it seems impractical for me to try ALL of them out. I know the Glocks work well enough.

Another thing to consider is sitting. Riding in a car with a gun at the front of your waist is going to be an unpleasant experience. At your back, it's not as bad, but still pretty rough. I find just behind the hip, at about 4 o'clock, is the least obtrusive all around.

I blame the fact the I had cataract surgery and am getting used to my "new" eyes; though in truth I'm just a lousy shot, and I don't shoot often enough to get better at it. Still, it's a lot of fun. One of my 2020 New Year's resolutions is to go to the range more often, and become at least a mediocre shot.

But I'd be happy with either so far as using them for self-defense.

Now I'm wondering how to choose between them. There's a lot of competition in the subcompact single-stack auto market but it seems impractical for me to try ALL of them out. I know the Glocks work well enough.

Posted by: ArthurK at December 08, 2019 08:18 PM (PE3lH)

If you want a .380 that's tiny, the G42 is owned by me and Nurse and others. It's small but it works well. Grip it tight, though. The gun doesn't have a lot of mass and it needs a tight grip to cycle the gun reliably.

If you want a small 9mm, if you want to stick with Glock, go with the Glock 43x rather than stock 43. Or the SIG 365 or Springfield Armory Hellcat if you want to venture out of Austrian goodness.

267 For long car rides, a shoulder holster is best. Just make sure you can draw from it. Some Galco's are a pain in the ass trying to draw from. Oddly, Uncle Mike's are easier draws.

Otherwise, 4 o'clock OWB is second best for me.

288 Shoulder and ankle holsters are both objectively better than waist carry for driving and sitting. I decided to choose just one and stick with it so I always know exactly where it is, and for me, that's IWB.
Everything's a trade-off. ¯\_(ツ )_/¯

Incidentally, if anyone knows of a good carry option for a bike, I'm still looking. Shoulder under the jacket works, but that's a lot of sturdy metal to have attached to my ribcage if I should end up sliding and I don't like the thought of it.

Along with full skirts, it appears that looser slacks are coming into style -- Think Lauren Bacall in the late 40's.

And you can carry off a suit sort of stylish jacket that certainly doesn't start with b*, or one of those newly stylish long sleeveless coat? You could carry a pistol and reload mags under those.

I loved baggy slacks in the 90's. I hate the current men's style of clothing fitting like a glove.

319 Nice job DB Cooper on the container and even better job equipping it.

For those that want form fitting insulation for shipping containers, try InSoFast and they ship to individuals. The stuff also has poly studs embedded into the insulation and channels for wiring/plumbing so that you can go directly over it with drywall. A slightly different version is great for basements which is the stuff I used.

On carry for a bike, you might want to look up Sneaky Pete's line as they have them looking like a smartphone or tablet holster for a belt (square instead of form fitting). I'd imagine that you might be able to carry without a second look by most folks.

Iron sights have the advantage of being extremely durable and low maintenance.

355 I am going to put out a pleg here--both pleading and begging. I started restoring a 1886/93 Lebel about 3-4 years ago and am down to a single bloody part for putting it all back together--it is a bolt connector.

I don't want anyone else's unless they have a spare but I would dearly love detailed pictures of one so that I could fabricate it if needed.

This is for the revised Lebel bolt as the bolt connector has a gas shield which was kinda important during the era of bad ammo. The usual parts warehouses are totally out and have been for years and even the auction sites rarely have Lebel parts. (This is not the later Berthier's that use a clip feeding system but fire the same Lebel round).

Rhomboid, I am all about camoflaging my carry and prefer very low key stuff. Mas Ayoob once called this art "weasel craft". I think that is fitting tribute to our AOS Weasel.

Posted by: clutch at December 08, 2019 09:03 PM (+mbOC)

380 338, Weasel,

I find optics on rifles disturbing but make do if I want to shoot accurately at distance. I really prefer excellent iron sights on a rifle and it helps that I rarely shoot more than 100-200 yards. I shoot faster with the open sights but do better in precision with aperture sights. I have to use low powered scopes as I tend to get lost in the scope and it affects my perception of depth adversely.

Two of my favorites are the Tech Sights for my SKS and the 1903a3 ap sights.

Now, if I can just get my medical issues cleared up so I can go back to the range.

Posted by: whig at December 08, 2019 09:03 PM (MwILh)

381 Comments requested on reliability of the .380 Bersa Thunder. It is the only (afaik) .380 with decocker/first shot dbl action approved for sale in Failifornia. By reliability, mean misfires per/1000 rounds, accuracy to 7 yards. Not worried about trigger.

I've owned two and still own one. The one I still own is the most unreliable pistol I've ever run into. I'm sure it has never fired a full mag without some form of malfunction. The other one worked but reliability was not sufficient for an every day carry piece. It's in he box in the safe. Shame because it is decently made.

395 329 ... "It may just be that I'm just an old grumpy guy, but I find optics and laser sights on handguns distracting."

Well, I certainly qualify for old and grumpy and guy. And I agree. Part of the fun of handguns for me is seeing how well I can shoot them as intended. It's the same with my mil-surp rifles.

The one exception is having scopes on some Contender barrels, especially ones like 22 Hornet and 222 Remington varmint calibers. Designed for small targets beyond my old eyes. Also a 357 Maximum Contender meant to be used beyond 200 yards routinely. But Contenders are not handguns in the traditional sense. They are in their own category as far as I'm concerned..

397 364, I'm sure there are in France but Lebels are scarce, Berthiers are fairly common.

Ironically, and I did not intend it this way, but chance got me a 1916 GEW 98, 1916 SMLE aka No. 1, Mk 3* (shopped version), a 1916 Springfield 1903, and a 1916 Berthier a couple of years back during the centennial of WWI. Also have a P14 from that year. Had to restore each of them but parts are a lot easier to find for WWI era. The Lebel is from a generation earlier in firearms and most never made it here.

404 393, It is just more fun to shoot them with iron sights to me as I don't like shooting from the bench. A far number of these old military rifles have a little kick and that is always worse for me recoil wise sitting at a bench shooting than standing.

The straight stock of the 1903 and most other military stocks of that vintage simply are not designed for optics so you have to do some stuff that is not so conducive to good neck health and I refuse to sporterize these. Far easier to shoot them as designed.

I also learned on iron sights to begin with which is probably why I prefer them.

short of going in and snipping the wires, it's doubtful.

you *should* be able to disable it in device manager, but there's no guarantee that will actually disable it, if some is using it for nefarious purposes.

424 406, Weasel, from what I've heard you have mad long distance shooting skills. Me, I'm a plodder and prefer to shoot at ranges where wind, bullets, etc. don't matter as much. Most of my poor old milsurps were rode hard and put up wet and worn bores usually shoot better with flat bottomed bullets and cast which kinda rules out long range.

The 1916 SMLE was fouled badly and cordite is not the best powder to put down a barrel. Nevertheless, I eventually discovered rifling after cleaning it with a kitchen sink (including electrolysis). Also got the hideous green paint that someone put on it which obscured all markings.

Turns out, it is a fairly rare early (Oct. 1916) shopped SMLE (made by a variety of subcontractors and put together by the prime one). Got to shoot it once before the troubles began and it did about 3-4 MOA with Prvi at 100 which is pretty good for a century old rifle with the original barrel. Alas, I did have to restock it though as someone put it in a poly stock.

Posted by: whig at December 08, 2019 09:29 PM (MwILh)

425 Farmer, not only is the microphone spying on you, but so is any location tracking. So if you carry your phone into a store, you may get ads for that store.

These things are designed to not be turned off. Some apps will even continue to collect information about you after you have deleted them!

About the only thing you can do is prevent the device from sending and receiving information. I think it was Zuck who would make his house guests put their phones in the fridge to prevent spying. (No signal in there.)

There are new phones and other devices coming out with privacy features, but they don't have all the conveniences you may be used to.

427 A little late to the thread, but I have to say that I only see one problem with that shop of DBCooper's.
It ain't at my house.

By the way, with respect to museums, if anyone is headed out west this summer it is well worth the time to spend a day in Cody, Wyoming and visit the Cody Museum. A great museum in it's own right for western history, but also a huge and fascinating firearms collection.

Had a devil of a time with a GEW 88 and fitting the safety/cocking piece/sear as the parts tolerances were rather generous at the time.

Food Thread: The Bigger The Better! Make Something Huge For Christmas Or New Year's Eve...

ribroast22.jpg

There's nothing quite like a large hunk of flesh, still attached to the bones, and complete with the fat that the beast was kind enough to deposit in and on its carcass.

Who doesn't like a monstrous slice of prime rib, or a wonderful rich and fatty slice from a lovingly roasted lamb leg, or even -- dare I say it -- a double-cut chop from a luscious pork roast?

I guess, for the purposes of politeness and inclusiveness, I should include large birds, but please don't throw TURKEY! at me. Roast a goose or even a duck, but not (shudder) turkey again!

I think the prerequisite is size...there is something festive and wonderful about the idea and the sight and the aroma of something big. When the host has to get help to carry the damned thing into the dining room, you know that you are in the right place!

******

cupcakevials.jpg

We had some friends over for dinner recently, and they brought cupcakes for dessert! "What?" Cupcakes? How very pedestrian*! But these weren't ordinary cupcakes. Two of them had small plastic vials of liquor embedded in them (it's sort of tough to see in the photo), and the idea was to squeeze the vial, thus injecting the liquor into the cupcake. Sounds...um...stupid? But it was brilliant! it worked fabulously well, I think in part because the liquor was not full-strength stuff, but rather what I am guessing was a mix of liquor and perhaps wine or even water. The guts of the cupcake was flavored but not overwhelmed.

Oh...the cupcakes themselves were great too.

* Not really. Anything is appreciated and most welcome. Seriously.

******

Well, there is nothing about this dish I don't love.
Cheesy Grits Casserole
And it is a reflection of the joys of Southern cooking, which is some of the finest cooking being done in America. It is about unabashed pleasure, without any of the crap ..the guilt and virtue-signalling and pomposity...that is flung so liberally (SWIDT?) in other parts of the country.
******

Yes, I would eat one of these.

What a good idea!
Apple Pie Cookies
I wonder where I can get pie dough? Hmmm...Oh, I know one place I can't get it: Bluebell's kitchen. She promised to drop by before Thanksgiving to make me some of her famous pie doughs, but she never showed. Typical Red Sox fan.

By the way, these seem to be the kind of cookie that is best fresh and warm. I'll bet they are spectacular a few minutes out of the oven. It's just the sort of thing that I would eat a few seconds too early and burn the crap out of my mouth.

So who is coming over to Chez Dildo to make them? I am, as I have admitted in the past, a retard when it comes to pie doughs, so if I ever attempt this recipe it will come out weirdly shaped and lopsided. But hopefully still delicious.

******

Oh my! Some of these must be fake, because they are just so stupendously , outrageously, unbelievably ugly and non-functional that I can't believe anyone actually took them seriously.

I just spoke with an old friend who just bought a house. It has a 1970s kitchen, complete with a mural of a monkey on the wall. So maybe I am wrong...maybe these are all serious!

The World's Worst Kitchen Designs

[Hat Tip: Misanthropic Humanitarian]

******

I have posted this recipe before, but it is a crowd pleaser, and one that, while it is a tedious process, can be done in advance.
Caramelized Onion Toasts

  • 1 stick (4oz) of unsalted butter
  • 3 big Vidalia or yellow onions, sliced
  • 4 anchovy halves, chopped
  • 3 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 baguette
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • Shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano

Heat ½ stick of butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions, chopped anchovies, thyme, salt and pepper and cook until the onions are golden brown, about 20-30 minutes, but it could take longer. Be careful not to burn the onions. If necessary, turn the heat down. The onions will eventually caramelize at the lower temperature; it will just take longer.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Meanwhile, holding the knife parallel to the cutting board, shave off the rounded top and bottom of the baguette with a serrated knife so that it lies flat. Don’t cut too much; just enough so that the baguette doesn’t roll around. Then cut the baguette in half lengthwise and then each long slice into 3 equal pieces to make 6 slices of bread so that it fits easily on the baking sheet. Melt the remaining butter and brush both sides of the bread.
When the onions are cooked, put the bread slices on a baking sheet and spread with the onions. Drizzle with olive oil, but not too much; there is plenty of fat in this dish!. Place in the oven and bake until the bread is crispy, about 10-15 minutes. Sprinkle with Parmigiano-Reggiano shavings. Cut into pieces on the diagonal and serve hot.

13 Sorry you don't like turkey... If you do it on a rotisserie at very high temperature (500-550F), it will finish in about two hours, have a delicious, crispy skin, and both the white and dark meat will be juicy.
Done that way, it's quite delicious.

Cook it at a very low temp for a long time, then crank the temp up at the very end.

Done all the way through, and perfect.

23 Ordered some of the wild rice from Lake Region Wild Rice Company in MN. They were mentioned in a recent Gardening Thread. It's glorious!

We tried the broken (soup) rice to start with. Perfect-- mild, nutty flavor with just a hint of smoke. Cooks up very well, solid as a rock.

One pot of wild rice chicken soup and we are hooked! Placing another large order tomorrow for gifting and for ourselves. Can't wait to try the full grain version!

Hubby is a sous chef at a casino, and he says it'll be added to and/or replacing any other rices in any recipe where he can work it in.

28 A local microbrewery has introduced something they call Apple Crisp beer. It does taste of apple and cinnamon. And It has become quite popular.
But one was enough for me.

54 food thread!

Funny thing: A while ago, I started putting meat on the grill and smoking it for a bit then tossing it on the gas grill to sear the meat.

I recently discovered that's called a "reverse sear."

No matter the name, seemed an obvious thing to do.

And speaking of reverse sear, about to toss some sirloins on the pellet grill then on to the gas grill!

For a "pinky finger extended" reverse sear.

You're right--when you eat one fresh out of the oven, you want to get down on one knee and weep. They're some work, but so pretty and so worth it, and they reheat well.

109 In my last kitchen, I had to open the refrigerator door in order to have clearance to open the silverware drawer. Also, the largest lower cabinet space, where normal cooks would store pots and skillets, had an 8-inch wide door opening. If you opened the next door over (under sink) you could reach the shelves from there.

The kitchen before that one had pink enameled metal cabinets with a matching pink stove. The original refrigerator had been pink as well. The next apartment over was turquoise.

At least the pink kitchen had adequate, functional storage.

it's is Real American Food in the same way that Pizza is. That is took some lame ass cooking from a foreign land and improved it with God-given, American Knowhow.

And, I refuse to hear you slander good old American ingenuity and knowhow....and Egg Fu Yung.

Yeah if you want a very hard surface, soapstone is not for you. This is my third kitchen with SS but I like the 'lived in' look even if there are worn spots.

What I really like about SS is dishes right out of the oven go right on it without potholders or trivets and if I need to thaw frozen meats quickly, I plop it on the SS and in about 30 -60 minutes, it is thawed.

Morbach "Yule Shoot Your Eye Out" Lighter version of Christmas ale . Think red ale with slight spicing. Super drinkable.

Great Southern(?) "Habitation Ale" - yummy winter warmer, thick caramel taste.

Avery "Sweater Party" - lotsa spice, like drinking gingerbread and snickerdoodle.

when I design a kitchen, I design the cabinets, down to the drawer runners. Nothing done a the back of a cocktail napkin
And many rooms are out of square or outta plumb. You either correct the situation or design around it
Any custom made cabinet will probably have to be scribed to fit. Just part of the job

151 I made pear tartlets for work for last Friday.

I made an shortening crust, the basic recipe is:
3 C all purpose flour
2-1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 Cup Crisco

to which I added a shot of anise flavored rum while it was mixing in the mixer.

I rolled it out and cut circles and carefully teased them into the cups of a muffin pan, and then put in

diced up pears that had been canned in water and sufficient pear jam to fill up the rest of the pastry cup

I baked in a pre-heated oven at 350F for 30 minutes -- My oven is a bit hot so that may not be enough time for you -- and I had to use a butter knife to separate them from the pans so paper muffin liners might be a good idea.

The jam caramelizes, and the crust was a bit too short so when I put them in a bowl to take to work the ones on the bottom crushed

I get to brag because I canned the pears in water and made the jam myself.
And one of the responses I got was a mouth full "emmehgord" comment.

Most are. Usually these days depending on the food, it is not a 'safety' thing as much as a 'quality' thing. The flavor starts to degrade after a while, depending on the packaging and how good an oxygen barrier that packaging is.

Naturally, there's chocolate fondue for dessert.

186 Just cooked baron of beef, red mashed potatoes, gravy, tavern ham, green beans and corn for 300...the key to quality cooking is for everything to come to fruition at the same time....I add a boodle onions, mushrooms, celery and garlic to the roasts and simmer in deep.16" Dutch oven for 6 hours....them puree the gravy with a cuisinart...no flour or thickening needed...

My non-foodie Cheese Grits:

1 T. garlic salt, to taste

Stir it all together and bake for about 30 mins at 350.

1 1 oz. pkg. Au Jus Gravy mix
1 1 oz. pkg. ranch dressing mix
Several pepperoncinis and some of their brine
1 stick unsalted butter cut up on top of roast and other ingredients.

Cook on low 8 hrs.

So his latest movies are 1) a group of rich folks who go outside the law to deal with threats because the government cannot, and b) an NPC who realizes that the world he lives in is artificial and breaks free of the programming fed to him in order to take control of his life.

He's treading dangerously close to right wing territory.

205 Yeah so I'm still skiddish on pulling the trigger for the crock pot. I don't know if I'll ever use it. Costco has a nice one on sale for $65.

They a $189 one that is also a "crisper" and a Dehydrater, which is nice in case I want to mummify something, I guess.

213 Cheribebe,

Sugar Cookies

1 cup butter (2 sticks)
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 cups AP flour
1 tsp kosher salt or 1/2 tsp regular

cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. beat in egg and vanilla. add salt and flour and mix until combined. roll out dough on a floured surface or between sheets of parchment to about 1/4 inch thickness. chill about 30-60 minutes then cut out cookies with cutter and place on parchment lined cookie sheets. bake 7-9 minutes at 350 degrees or until edges just barely brown. cool on wire racks. These cookies don't spread much and hold their shape.

We have: 4 Classic- all 3 cereals, pretzels, nuts
2 all three cereals, pretzels, no nuts
1 Rice and Corn only, pretzels, nuts

My own is Classic, but heavy on the Wheat Chex. It is a scientific fact that Wheat Chex soaks up more of the seasonings.

This Thanksgiving, I was tasked with defrosting and brining a frozen 16lb bird 2 PM the day before Thanksgiving. No Shit.

In addition to getting everything ready for my own family.

I succeeded. Everyone loved it (as I hear), and yes you *can* brine a frozen bird the day before if you absolutely need to.

I don't recommend it, but it is perfectly possible with good results.

278 Being born in this country is like winning life's
lottery.

Posted by: cfo mom at December 08, 2019 06:05 PM (RfzVr)

I appreciate that sentiment, but there are generations before us who worked very, very hard to make this country possible. Our lottery win is as a result of their blood, sweat and tears.
Luck is the residue of design...

285 Hey everybody. Just had a Mr Lee's salmon burrito at Wahoos for a late lunch.

Cheese Grits Casserole sounds kinda good, but I'd hope jalapeños are part of the recipe.

Posted by: qdpsteve at December 08, 2019 06:13 PM (L2ZTs)

286 Yes CBD, I agree with that. I wish that the youngsters understood how fortunate they are to have had ancestors who risked it all to come to this country and try to make a life. Whether they came in 1620 or 1920, it was a heck of a gamble.

Seriously, I've found it's quite handy to have a jar of pickled nacho-sliced jalapeños around.

298 Mom always made our "Spotted Ham" and it was always so delicious. We'd get amazing sandwiches out of it for days. The broth and bones were saved for pot of beans early next year. For New Year's Mom would do a wonderful prime rib that always came out the perfect med-rare with the nice crust.

But she passed this summer so it's just me and Dad now. There is no heart in the holidays this year.

Isn't that the truth! My Godfather was put on a train after processing at Ellis Island with $10 in his pocket and a hand scribbled note pinned to his lapel that said "Middlebranch, Ohio" on it. Couldn't speak a lick of English but got to where he needed to be.

She's not. She's not mentioning the week of glorious leftovers, for some reason.

Cream of lutefisk soup

Lutefisk Goulash
Swedish Meatball sandwiches
Lutefisk fricassee
etc.

it was nsirchov, off my old vanity plates of NSRCHOV

they wouldn't let me have CHERCHEZ, so I had to settle for NSRCHOV

it was because of my search of antiques but was often taken the wrong way

and I was banned from the AOS under that nic like 4 years ago

I just watched an unboxing vid for the Costco crockpot.
The lady then used it to thaw a frozen fully-cooked rotisserie chicken.

So you can buy those $4.99 cooked rotisserie chickens at the market, freeze them, and then eat them later. Interesting.

Question: How good does a thawed cooked chicken taste after coming out of the crock pot?

313 Qdpsteve, that's a handy idea. Another thing I like is Vietnamese garlic sauce. It's hot and spicy and yummy! I add them to things to give them a little boost!

Is the Rev Swedish too? Maybe it's time to start a new tradition. Food with a little color to it, just to liven things up a bit.

315 One of my ancestors was kidnapped by pirates and held for ransom in the West Indies. Family paid, ancestor was released, and he finally made it to Virginia around 1751.

Another on Mom's side arrived in Seattle from Finland around 1900, and got work as a longshoreman in Longview.

I daresay most of my ancestors had some very interesting tales about how they arrived in America. I am profoundly thankful they followed their dream.
