A line of thunderstorms

A line of thunderstorms will bring torrential rain and severe weather to the area Sunday through Sunday evening. Good Lord. Now what’s happened? I highlight something to copy/paste and then paste and this is what I get?. That’s hideous looking. Daughter C spent a few minutes tornado-straight-line-winds-it’s-going-to-be -stormy-proofing the apartment porch. That was smart.

Tuna Casserole & the Internet

From time to time, Mr. Big Food and I reluctantly leave the Farm and visit your world. Your World has really really fast internet. NO WONDER THE SMART KIDS ABANDON MISSISSIPPI. This is not neuroscience. I appreciate that the pace of life is too fast. But it’s unacceptable that it took 30 mins. to transmit

Tuna Casserole I

I was hoping to post a few photos of this evening’s supper– Tuna Casserole I. As you have noticed, it’s been a LOOOONG time since I’ve religiously posted food photographs and recipes. The reason is that we had to change our accommodations with Verizon. Verizon Satellite it the only way we connect to the World

I really do have a question

How long does it take to charge up the charger? https://www.ravpower.com/16w-foldable-solar-charger.html It boasts that it can convert ~25% of the sun’s energy onto electrons your devices want to devour at lickidy smart speed. The sun. Hahahaha. But how much sun does it take to charge the charger? This is measurable stuff. In my clime– Mississippi-

I’m Proud to be…

an Okie from Muskogee. Muskogee, Oklahoma, USA. And the land you belong to is Grand… Hip-Ay-Ip-Aye-A! “That’s a movie we should watch. Shirley Jones. Before she was Mrs. Partridge,” said Mr. Big Food. “OKLAHOMA,” said I.

Stand up.

Stand up for Jesus. I understand that there is new interest in Jesus. Black film. [The file title is Film-Noir-Wedding-Cake] Heh. That’s photoshopped. Nobunny that tiny has that much soft flea-free fur. And if you don’t get this, … . All via last Saturday’s via Powerline’s The Week in Pictures. I think I have a

Saturday Supper

Brunch this morning was awesome. We had buttermilk pancakes and a sausage and apple breakfast casserole. And Jordan mixed a delightful tomato morning beverage. And we went for a walk and then we had Daughter C’s homemade mango & mixed fruit gelato. ~~ I know that there are louder places on Earth, but I like

Little Fella Update

No. There are no pictures. Back in the crappy olden days, one of the best/worst things in your life was vacationing with your parents’ friends. At first it was cool seeing your face on the slide projected above the fireplace. … . Cha-Cha-Cha-Changin’… . He’s a cute, smart kid, by the way. He can walk

It Were Fancy Tuesday

Notice how I managed in one swoop to obliterate both agreement and tense. These are some leaks. These are the leaks in cream sauce topped with a breadcrumb-butter mixture about to go in the oven. There was some discussion about how many breadcrumbs this dish needed. I lost. It happens. This is Poulet Marengo. Mr.

The Sopranos

[Read in your Mind’s best New Jersey accent.] It’s over. I couldn’t be happier. I mean, I watched six fuckin’ seasons of this shit and what do I get as a.. what’s it called?… a de-nu-somtingorfucking other. I get a family in a diner. I get Meadow so incompetent that she can’t even parallel park

Here’s an interesting subtext train of thought

As you are well aware, there are a lot of books at the Farm. In last week’s newspaper, there was a call to donate books. If you are interested, the project is called “United We Read.” It’s a redistribution project, but as books have value that cannot be quantified but can only be piled on, I

The American Dream

If you drew the Lucky Card and were born in the United States of America because your ancestors were smart enough to get the hell out of Europe in the 1600s, 1870s, 1930s… you are acquainted with The American Dream.   There are a lot of rough edges, but I think we have achieved the
