Daughter C. is back. Rocky has moved back to the other side of the house. And Missy, Mr. Big Food, and I are learning a new normal— Missy has the most to learn. I think it will do her good.

[s]crewdrivers with insulated handles should be used when making electrical repairs of installations and be sure the current is off before attempting such work.
Sometimes, things just don’t pan out as I was hoping they would. Lord knows I’ve tried, but I just can’t get beyond this simple point. If you achieve the age of adulthood (18) and can’t manage to screw a screw into something using a battery operated screwdriver without seriously injuring yourself, you are stupid, and by reverse genetics, so are your parents. And no Federal Regulations are going to change that.
The language of the proposed rule is so specific it would even ban youth from operating a battery powered screwdriver or a pressurized garden hose.

We are Americans tired of gagging on federal mandates that dictate what we can do with our faith, family, and freedoms. We are here to expose the hypocrisy of the liberal agenda. Please don’t be stupid…Be a Conservative.

|p. 191 of A World of Experience Teachers’ Edition, published by American Book Company copyrighted in 1963. The story, “Jim Thorpe,” in Chapter 4, “Game Champions,” was written by Robert H. Shoemaker.|
crappy old story concludes with some questions.
- Do you think there is such a thing as a “born athlete”? If so, was Thorpe one?
- How were Thorpe and Ruth alike?
- What were some of the causes of Thorpe’s success?
- The 1912 Olympics brought both success and failure to Jim Thorpe. What was the cause for success? for failure?
- What were some of the causes of his decline?
- What are some of the amusing sidelights of Jim’s career?

Fearing that certain words and topics can make [NYC public school] students feel unpleasant, officials are requesting 50 or so words be removed from city-issued tests.
The word ‘dinosaur’ made the hit list because dinosaurs suggest evolution which creationists might not like…. ‘Halloween’ is targeted because it suggests paganism; a ‘birthday’ might not be happy to all because it isn’t celebrated by Jehovah’s Witnesses.

Time: ~ 1 hour, if you’re working with canned/cooked chickpeas
Serves: 6 easily
Toss 2 cans of chickpeas (I cooked 1 cup of dry beans) with a little olive oil and spread on a baking sheet. Bake at 375, shaking the pan every 7 minutes, until they’re lightly browned, about 25 minutes.
While that’s going on, cook 1 onion, sliced, in 2 Tablespoons of vegetable oil until it starts to soften. Add 1 Tablespoon minced fresh ginger, 2 Tablespoons of curry powder (I did one each of masala curry and plain curry, because I’m culturally insensitive), 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, 1/4 teaspoon cardamom. Once fragrant, add rutabaga, a handful of golden raisins, a handful of cashews (I rinsed the salt off of them), 2 Tablespoons tomato paste, 1 can coconut milk, 1 can of water. Let it all burble away until the rutabaga is cooked.
Serve on top of rice with chickpeas spooned on top along with a dollop of plain yogurt and chopped cilantro.
And now back to Big Life (I hear Missy in the kitchen playing with the lovely packaging that held my new computer).
Melt butter in a large heavy skillet over low heat, add onion, and cook, stirring constantly, until transparent but not brown. Add sliced mushrooms and stir until mixed. Add wine, stir well, and simmer until most of the wine is evaporated. Add rice and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes. Add 1 C stock, mix well, and cook until stock has been absorbed by rice, stirring frequently. Repeat with another 1 C stock. Add remaining stock, stir well, cover skillet, and simmer, stirring frequently, until all stock has been absorbed. “Cooking time is 25 minutes after first stock has been added.” Remove from heat, add ½ C cheese, and stir well. Cover and let stand 3 minutes. Garnish with a large sautéed mushroom and green pepper strips. Serve wit additional grated Parmesan cheese and lemon juice, if desired
