    Hi, there, I am glad to be welcomed to your world. 🙂

  • You will….well, enjoy yes, but it will also make you think.

  • yep, it was a fun show…I liked I Dream of Jeanie also.

  • I think next to Samantha and the Uncle, she was my favorite.

  • hope you find and enjoy (learn from) it.

  • Yeah, taste often changes over time. But one thing i hated as a child, I still hate…pears.

  • I wouldn’t have thought I would like Brussel Sprouts, because i never liked the “collard greens”, “mustard greens” and such that my mother swore by, but found that I liked them…I suspect made a certain way; I am almost positive the way you made them would taste good to me.

  • I have no idea about audible. I have found myself unable to listen to a book. I find my mind leaves and goes elsewhere and then “wake up” and don’t remember anything that I heard. I will hope for your sake, it is, though.

  • Here is my review for what I consider one of the best books I have read in a long time.  I gave it a 5 out of 5, which is very rare for me.  I usually give 3 or 4, only occasionally giving a 2 if I really t […]

    • I will add this to my list. If its on Audible I will add it to my library and will get to it eventually cause I have so many books in my Audible library at the moment. BUT….I do get to them 😉

  • Prime Rib AND ham….wow. And I bet you had plenty of vegatables too. I had two bowls of Lentil Soup, french fries and the lamb skank…(that is what they call it, I don’t know someone asked me what that was, and the best I could do to explain to them was “a big piece of leg with the bone”…LOL)

  • Hey, the Turkey wants you to have a happy thanksgiving as do I.  However, I am sure the turkey always would perfer you eat a hamburger, or a piece of chicken instead of him….give ’em a break if you […]

    • Hi Friend 😉
      Happy Thanksgiving to you.
      Like you….we are giving “Turkey” a break too. It’s Prime Rib here….. big enough to feed an army and there are only 4 of us. It may take some time…but it should be eaten up by Christmas. Ha! Oh…and a small ham.
      You enjoy your day….. 🤗
      🥧 🍗

        • Your meal sounds delicious. As for vegetables…..I made Brussel sprouts with a balsamic vinegar glaze and bacon. Not enough veggies I know…but I had limited space and time.

          • I wouldn’t have thought I would like Brussel Sprouts, because i never liked the “collard greens”, “mustard greens” and such that my mother swore by, but found that I liked them…I suspect made a certain way; I am almost positive the way you made them would taste good to me.

            • YOU WOULD LOVE my Brussel Spouts. I tasted them like this YEARS ago in a snobby little place up in the mountains. I still do not make them exactly like they did……theirs were fried to where they were crispy. BUT….the taste is so similar.
              Funny how some things we didn’t care for when we were little….we absolutely love as we get older 😊

              • Yeah, taste often changes over time. But one thing i hated as a child, I still hate…pears.

                • PEARS?!?! 🍐
                  I am curious 🧐….all pears? Young pears….ripe pears….over ripe pears? Cooked pears? Raw Pears?
                  There is that gritty texture they have….could it be the texture that turns you off?
                  When I go shopping for fruit….pears are hardly high on my list. BUT….some recipes I have come to enjoy call for pears. Like Toast with cream cheese, sliced pear, drizzled with maple syrup and pecans. I had dinner with a friend years ago and she ordered Poached Bosc Pears for dessert. They were poached in red wine and spices and served warm in the wine sauce. They had whipped cream on the side. So I have learned to love the little pear….though I still hardly fill my fruit bowl up with them.
                  Maybe you need to try them in different recipes?

                  • It seems to be a combination of the texture and the taste. There is something about one or the other, or the combination that almost makes me gag. And it is ALL pears. I even had a friend tell me of a pear that was less pear-like, and I didn’t like that one either…in fact, I think I hated it even more.

                    My mother used to sneak pears into my oatmeal thinking that it was just “one of those crazy childish things” and that if I didn’t know they were there, I would eat them without a problem…maybe even like them. Her frustration on finding me using my tongue, locating the pear and spitting it out was immerse. All that little trick of hers achieved was to make me super-careful about oatmeal…If it wasn’t just right, I wouldn’t eat that either.

                    Oh, the only way I can eat any pear at all is in fruit cocktail when it is cut up so finely that I can just ignore the pear part and let it slide down with the peaches and other fruit.

                    • So interesting. That fruit your friend mentioned might have been “Asian Pear”…..half apple half pear. Looks like a delicate apple….but it’s more pear to me.
                      Anyhow…. I was going to suggest different ways to try to prepare them but if you don’t like them why try eh?

                      • I want to say it was a Bartlett Pear, but whatever it was, it tasted like a pear to me, which means that one bite was enough. 🙂

    • It is so nice of you to volunteer for such a good cause. We need more people like you in the world .Happy belated Thanksgiving.

  • Trevor Noah is one of my favorites. 🙂

  • What has to be remember also,, is that most of the demogogues, are really not at war with the elite as they try to convince the rest of us that they are. Like trump, they usually come from the ranks of the rich and elite…or at least privileged, and use our anger against us to divide us against each other. That’s what trump did, for sure.

  • I would love to see the Green Party be ascendent. But right now we have to fight the “republican versus democrat” game. Maybe when more people wake up about the environment, the Green party will have its chance.

  • Glad I was able to clarify. I often find that people don’t get my way of addressing things the first time. Sorry. 🙂

  • Actually, that is not a mistake in paragraph 3 although it might seem misleading if it is read a different way than I meant. Biden has suggested that all Americans need to come together and not consider each other enemies. The problem is that many of the trump supporters hate minorities and would do anything they could to deny us (and I include…[Read more]

    To start, let me just announce that only four persons are currently blocked. They are blocked because of their prior reaction to me and will remain blocked for the foreseeable […]

    • Where have I been? This is the first I am hearing about this story. As you can tell…..I do live in my own little world..HA!

      You made an Error up in Paragraph 3. It’s not Biden who is suggesting people should not fear the little boys….it was Trump.

      As you know…I don’t care for Trump or Biden…..but I did vote for what I think is the lesser evil…..Biden.
      But I could have been selfish and just let things be since Trump actually gave my household a BIG BIGLY HUGELY Tax cut and we didn’t even need one. My sons accountant called months ago and informed them of the new Tax information and we all just couldn’t stop laughing before we felt a bit sad for the working folks who actually believe he looks out for them. We laughed because it was just INSANE that people who need no tax cut….GOT A TAX CUT. But believe me….that BIGLY HUGELY tax cut we didn’t even want will just be given to charity.

      Cheers to Hawaii….my fellow Indigenous Brothers and Sisters 😉

      • Actually, that is not a mistake in paragraph 3 although it might seem misleading if it is read a different way than I meant. Biden has suggested that all Americans need to come together and not consider each other enemies. The problem is that many of the trump supporters hate minorities and would do anything they could to deny us (and I include myself as a gay man as part of the minority) our civil rights and equality before the law.

        In other words, Biden is suggesting being more “forgiving” than I am able or willing to be for the folks in the extreme right like the Proud Boys who are a threat to many of us. Sorry if my word choice confused you.

        Now, I can’t remember who I voted for in the primary. I know I voted for Bernie in 2016. I am not sure who all was available at that time. I supported Elizabeth Warren and/or Bernie Sanders, although I leaned this time toward Elizabeth Warren. If Elizabeth and Bernie were eliminated before the primary, I probably voted for Biden because I didn’t like a couple of the others, and thought Biden had a better chance of winning. I voted for Hillary in the general election in 2016 for the same reason. I would NEVER have voted for trump…ever.

        Now, I didn’t really get a tax cut as such, or not anything like I was “promised”. But I did get the 1200 stimulus, which I used to invest in alternative fuel industries….the entire thing was sent as a check to my business management with the stipulation to put the money in ART Investments which is all about innovative technology using alternative fuel sources. I figured that was a good way to use trump approved money to fight the trump agenda, which i have always seen as destructive to the environment as well as to the more needy people whose health care he is endangering.

        • Ok…..I get it now. Yes…being forgiving and understanding can be difficult for many people. I understand where you stand. LOVE the way you invested your stimulus.

          • Glad I was able to clarify. I often find that people don’t get my way of addressing things the first time. Sorry. 🙂

  • I found this book very disturbing but would give it an 8 1/2 or 9 on a 1-10 chart.  It falls into the category of Science Fiction and tends toward the area called alternative history whether or not that was […]
