TODAY’S FEEL-GOOD GRUDGE

Posted by Pistol Pete

Before a majority of our fellow citizens decided to commit national suicide,politics took up a large part of my day.After She died,I had a hard time finding anything worthwhile to talk about.Then I discovered that outside the shallowness of political Kabuki,there really are good things in life.I suspect it’s always been that way.If you want true peace you have to look for it.The search is definitely worthwhile.

  

I’D LIKE TO FIND ONE OF THESE FOR CHRISSY:

      Make sure to ask if the card honors small balances. Companies like best buy will not give back change, like most cards do if there is a balance of a couple of bucks. Thus, people have to spend over the amount on the card or forfeit the balance.
      What a racket.
      This is why I have not shopped in Best Buy for years.

      Are you going vegan now PP, or are you just trying to humor us?
      Most of these recipes make the typical vegan mistake of being too high in carbs, which many of us cannot handle. But there were a couple of gems. Besides the banana ice cream the chocolate mousse looks like something I am going to have to try (chocolate makes us happy).
      Genius Recipes says: It took a brilliant, adventurous chemist to discover the simplest way to make chocolate mousse at home. Hervé This, the father of molecular gastronomy, di (…more)

      Serves 4
      3/4 cup (6 ounces) water
      8 ounces chocolate (we used 70% bittersweet — choose a high quality chocolate you love)
      ice cubes
      whipped cream for topping (optional)
      .
      1. Simply pour water into a saucepan (which will be improved from the gastronomic point of view if it is flavored with orange juice, for example, or cassis puree). Then, over medium-low heat, whisk in the chocolate. The result is a homogenous sauce.
      2. Put the saucepan in a bowl partly filled with ice cubes (or pour into another bowl over the ice — it will chill faster), then whisk the chocolate sauce, either manually with a whisk or with an electric mixer (if using an electric mixer, watch closely — it will thicken faster). Whisking creates large air bubbles in the sauce, which steadily thickens. After a while strands of chocolate form inside the loops of the whisk. Pour or spoon immediately into ramekins, small bowls or jars and let set.
      3. Note: Three things can go wrong. Here’s how to fix them. If your chocolate doesn’t contain enough fat, melt the mixture again, add some chocolate, and then whisk it again. If the mousse is not light enough, melt the mixture again, add some water, and whisk it once more. If you whisk it too much, so that it becomes grainy, this means that the foam has turned into an emulsion. In that case simply melt the mixture and whisk it again, adding nothing.
      4. Serve immediately, or refrigerate. Top with whipped cream if desired.

    I just got this in email. Had to stick it in here before I forget. Will be back later to read the Grudge.

    It all makes sense now.

    Gay marriage and marijuana were legalized on the same day.

    Leviticus 20:13 “If a man lays with another man he should be stoned.”

    We’ve just been reading it wrong all these years.

    After 40 days and nights in the desert, he would see a blaming bush

    He would find someone else to die on the cross.

    He would have pointed to the Earth and yelled to God – “You didn’t build that!”.

    He would find someone else to die on the cross.

    He would’ve spent most of his sermon on the mount blaming the previous messiah.

    He would have sat down and had a beer summit with the money changers as the people got hosed.

    The first time Peter denied him he would have called him racist.

    He would find someone else to die on the cross.
