(Happy New Year!)

Quotes of The Day

Quote I

“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.

Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're Doing Something.

So that's my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody's ever made before. Don't freeze, don't stop, don't worry that it isn't good enough, or it isn't perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.

Whatever it is you're scared of doing, Do it.

Make your mistakes, next year and forever.” ― Neil Gaiman

Quote II

Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man. Benjamin Franklin

Quote III

The object of a New Year is not that we should have a new year. It is that we should have a new soul and a new nose; new feet, a new backbone, new ears, and new eyes. Unless a particular man made New Year resolutions, he would make no resolutions. Unless a man starts afresh about things, he will certainly do nothing effective. Gilbert K. Chesterton

So what are you serving with that champagne tonight? Fried chicken!


There is no bad time to drink Champagne, of course. It just so happens that New Year’s Eve is a particularly good time to do it. This is a universal truth that needs no undoing. The only question becomes: What do you want to eat with it? This year, that answer should be a big bucket of fried chicken. In fact, there may be no better marriage on earth than the one that exists between fried chicken and Champagne, the ultimate symbiosis of grease and acid.

Next year I resolve to use proper equipment in my medical practice and not be a Genius Award Winner.

A New Jersey surgeon has had his license yanked over allegations he inserted used catheters into the rectums of at least five patients, state authorities say.

Dr. Sanjiv K. Patankar, who practices in East Brunswick, is accused of re-using catheters on multiple patients over the course of nearly a year because he ran out of catheters and replacement supplies were on backorder, the state's complaint says.

I resolve not too gloat.......



That didn't take long to break that resolution.

Good luck drinking tonight if you're going out.

Do you have a best friend? Is that best friend someone you want to be fused to? I didn't think so, but 2 Detroit men dead did. h/t ibguy

Police are investigating the apparent electrocution of two people early Friday at a Detroit Public Lighting Authority building, Fox 2 reported on Saturday.

A worker reportedly told Fox 2 he found the bodies just after 6:30 a.m. when he went to the substation to investigate a power outage. The pair are suspected of breaking in the front door of the substation, and, according to Fox 2, they were in the process of stealing copper wiring when they were electrocuted.

I resolve when I go to Wal-Mart to shop lift I will not be a Genius Award Winner.

Inside the office, police explained to Stanley and Smith that they were under arrest. Officers say Stanley was holding $2,520 in cash and when they asked if he had a gun, he said he had a Ruger 9 mm that may have been stolen, according to the police report.

After officers retrieved the gun and handcuffed Stanley, they then searched the black book bag that he was wearing.

Police say the following items were inside Stanley’s bag and were seized:

An estimated 3,190 doses of heroin inside waxed paper bags
Two human teeth
Three unopened Fentanyl patches
56 blue pills with “K9” imprinted on them
25 pills with “3060” imprinted on them
22 grams of marijuana
One pill with “A/214” imprinted on it.

According to Pat Dowling, North Myrtle Beach spokesman, the teeth inside Stanley’s bag belonged to him.

Several thoughts come to mind. Does this individual have a felony record? If he does how is he released on such a low bail? Will this guy show up for future court dates?

Harry Bailey Utah 8 year old is saved from drowning Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

NEW HARMONY, Utah -- A police officer punched his way through the ice of a frozen pond to pull an 8-year-old boy from under the water Monday.

Lt. David Crouse of the Washington County Sheriff's Office said emergency crews responded to a report of a child who had fallen through the ice into a pond just after 5 p.m. in New Harmony, which is south of Cedar City in southern Utah.

The pond is located near 3100 East and 2500 South.

Crouse said an 8-year-old boy was chasing a dog and fell through the ice. Another boy who was watching this happen went and tried to help the child, but was unable to get him out of the water.

24 Odd--it's been two days and still no tweet from Obama in support of Iran's young people. Why, it's almost as if he supports the police state-regime instead of the people. Hey, CNN; instead of your Ahab-quest to capture a picture of the Great White Backswing, how 'bout camping out in front of your Boyfriend's house until he releases a statement in support of the Iran protestors? It's the least Obama could do. After all, he bought the bullets they're shooting them with.

52 FLAGLER COUNTY, Fla. -- Investigators say a Florida man rigged the door to his home with devices designed to electrocute his pregnant estranged wife, reports CBS affiliate WKMG. Deputies say Michael Scott Wilson's father-in-law called police on Dec. 26, asking that they do a security check of Wilson's Palm Coast home after the 32-year-old allegedly made suspicious statements. Deputies immediately noticed that the front door appeared to be barricaded, with burn marks near the handle. When a deputy kicked the door, there was a large spark and he realized it was outfitted with what he described as a "booby trap," the station reports. screen-shot-2017-12-29-at-2-41-39-pm.png Michael Scott Wilson CBS AFFILIATE WKMG Electrical devices had allegedly been hooked up to the door's lock and handle. Deputies said attempts to unlock or open the door could have caused severe injury or even death. The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports investigators later concluded that Wilson intended for his wife to use her house key, while grabbing the handle, completing a circuit that would have sent a shock through her arms, chest and heart. - Too complicated. Frying pan to the back of the head is quicker and easier.

92 What's the most awesomest fast food tantrum various Horde members have ever witnessed? Gotta be some great stories out there!

Got to see the emotional three year old throw a tantrum about chicken nuggets on multiple occasions in the last six months.  Feet stomping, crying loudly, the works.

Or were you talking about adults who really should know better than to show the emotional development of a preschooler?

268 As an unrelated aside, the other day I ran across a vintage brass powderhorn that I found at an excavation site when I was a kid. Checking, I was surprised to find that they are a dime a dozen. By brass powderhorn, do you perhaps mean a powder flask, shaped a bit like a teardrop with a valve on top? Or do you mean a copy of a cowhorn in brass? What kind of excavation?

292 Way way back when, I was driving down a rutted highway, rutted because we'd had a freezing rain/snowfall and the roads were unbelievably icy and noticed a slight shimmy of the front end of the car next to me so, I started pumping the brakes because I knew the guy was going to lose it. Sure enough, I got just back of him and biff! he spun a couple of times and into the snowbank he goes. Had I not noticed, I'd have been clipped when the guy spun out. Pulled over, looked at the way the car was in the snow, told him to get back in and pushed him out and sent him on his way. So glad I don't live in MN any more. Although, CA sucks and I can't wait to move.

302 I'm confused by the first sign "white lies denial ignorance kills people" perhaps an Oxford comma would help? Posted by: AmericanKestrel ________ The grammar does make it confusing. "White" refers to former Yankees outfielder Roy White. "Lies" means reclines, and in he lies in eternal repose. "Denial" is the refusal to accept that Roy White is dead, which is correct because he's still alive. "Ignorance kills people" is a combination of a logic puzzle and a joke. Ignorance does not kill people but some people don't know that. Pretty clever, really.

I've used this recipe with great success:

https://youtu.be/ggdqHEZ6dfw

Simple stuff, freezes well! --be sure to mix it *very* well--

5 - 6 green onions, sliced
1/4 - 1/3 head of cabbage, thinly sliced and finely chopped
2 lbs ground pork
1 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp grated garlic
1 1/2 tsp grated ginger
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Pepper

Put a small spoonful into each wonton wrapper and fold closed. I got 7 dozen (plus a few extra) with this basic recipe.
--------------

For (Quick!) dipping sauce:

1/4 cup Yoshida's Original Sweet Teriyaki
1 tsp grated ginger
1tsp crushed garlic
1/2 tsp rice vinegar
2 tsp soy sauce
1/4tsp onion powder -or- 1 finely minced green onion
Optional: a few drops of chili oil for *spicy kick*

Put all ingredients into small jar, cover, shake until well blended. Keep refrigerated, lasts up to 4 days.

Enjoy!

362 Hadrian #250: Thank you to everyone who thought this was a good night to shoot off tons of fireworks. We and the dogs appreciate it. Dear ol' Gimli (died Nov 3) hated loud noises. Neighbors' gun practice, fireworks, thunder, sirens, cats fighting, would send him running to me like a puppy, seeking reassurance. I have no doubt he would've taken on a tiger to protect us, so it was always kinda funny to see him cringe and run at noises. He got calmer about it as he got older; possibly hearing loss. But I spent many a thundering night, half-asleep, petting, petting, petting his nuzzling head, saying, it's all right, it's all right.

374 Dunkirk was quite disappointing. I get that there needs to be personal stories, but they did a piss poor job of conveying the scope of both the problem (350 - 400 thousand stranded soldiers) and the civilian effort. At most I saw maybe a thousand soldiers and a dozen civilian boats. Oh, and Kenneth Branagh stood in the same spot for all of his scenes. The story lines they had tended to drag (best one being old man and two boys in the civilian boat). Dull movie about an interesting historical time

"White" refers to former Yankees outfielder Roy White. "Lies" means reclines, and in he lies in eternal repose. "Denial" is the refusal to accept that Roy White is dead, which is correct because he's still alive. "Ignorance kills people" is a combination of a logic puzzle and a joke. Ignorance does not kill people but some people don't know that. Pretty clever, really. FireHorse, that explanation was Princess Bride -esque(?) in its brilliance

398 >> So, I am not familiar, how much is a dose? You know, I have no idea for heroin in mg. There are tables online of "opioid equivalent doses" which will give you a basis of comparison for all legal opioids. Some of which are more powerful than heroin. Anyway, junkies can build up amazing tolerances, taking doses that would be lethal for a normal person. But none for heroin. I'm sure it's available, you'd just have to search in the right (or wrong) places. The trouble with street drugs is the purity and composition is really unknown, so you don't know really what you're getting. It's a dangerous game.

407 Odd--it's been two days and still no tweet from Obama in support of Iran's young people. Why, it's almost as if he supports the police state-regime instead of the people. Posted by: The Gipper Lives at December 31, 2017 10:06 PM (Ndje9) Obama is just pissed that the Iranian people aren't cooperating with his plans to let Iran export terrorism and build nukes. A retired CIA guy said this morning on Fox News that Obama forbad the intelligence community from having any contact with the survivors of the Green Movement that fled Iran after the protests in 2009 were suppressed by imported Hezbollah goons.

467 >>Spoken like a real man! Only in spirit, your Grace. The flesh,Clint Eastwood, I ain't. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. There was a story about that. It involved early attempts at translation by computer program. A test was to translate something into the target language, then translate it back, and see how mangled it was. They put that "spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak" through that, going English-->Russian-->English, and the result was "The wine is good, but the meat is spoiled".

473 Junkies can reach unbelievable levels of tolerance (they get in a coffin corner), but 3190 is a quite a few doses still, even for someone at that level. Posted by: publius, the Persistent Poperin Pear at December 31, 2017 11:26 PM (8O3HH) It sounds like a lot but ... for something that you have to take daily (maybe twice a day) a couple with a tolerance of no more than 4 times a regular dose would only have a little over one year's supply with that.

532 "308 Looking at the Trumps at NYE. I can't believe how tall Barron is. Which led me to look up President Trump's height." I was with my nephews and grandnephews on Thanksgiving in Phoenix, there are a lot of tall people in the family, I'm 6'2", brother is taller, and so the kids I was with are his grandkids. ages 7, 5, and 3. The oldest won looks like he's going to be tall, 5 year old, not so much - and then the 3 year old is some kind of genetic mutant. He's very sweet, and kinda goofy, and at 3 he only weighs 6 pounds less than the 7 year old, is almost as tall, and has shoulders twice as wide. His mom calls him her Giant Baby, we're all betting on him ending up at about 6'7" and 240 (at least!). No one who meets him believes his age.

560 On a more philosophical, or perhaps literary bent, this from Halprin's 'Winter's Tale'. The scene is a club where a New Year's party is being held, turn of the 19th century NYC: "Then she turned about in her seat and faced a set of French doors against which the cold wind was pushing a shower of winter stars. Without warning, they burst open. Then, inexplicably, the next set of doors flew open too, and so on and so forthright down the line, until the twenty one sets of doors at Mounquin's had all opened in a machine-gun like percussion that that stopped the orchestra and the dancers. The fresh air stoked the fire and turned it from a purring cat into an enraged Bessemer furnace, and the icicle-covered trees outside began to tinkle like a thousand sleigh bells. Then the hands of the clock began to race like the tortoise and the hare, and both reached midnight at the same time. The clock struck along with every clock in New York, and the church bells, fireworks, and ship whistles all sounded at once, turning the entire city into a giant hurdy-gurdy. It soon got so cold that the men rushed to close the doors. When they had shut them and the room was again silent, they saw that several women had begun to cry. The women said that it was because of the numbing cold that had washed over their bare shoulders, but even strangers embraced sadly as they coasted into the new year and felt its strength commencing. They cried because of the magic and the contradictions; because time had passed and time was left; because they saw themselves as if they were in a photograph that had winked fast enough to contradict their mortality; because the city around them had conspired to break a hundred thousand hearts; and because they and and everyone else had to float upon this sea of troubles, watertight. Sometimes there were islands, and when they found them they held fast, but never could they hold fast enough not to be moved and once again overwhelmed." ------------- Hold tight to your islands, Horde

644 We here "Auld Lang Syne" every time this ball of rock completes one more circuit around the Sun, but very few, I think, know it's true, deep meaning. Look it up. It means "Old Long Since" directly translated. A better translation of meaning would be "old times gone by". When you raise your glass, remember old times gone by, those who are no longer with you. Recall the memories. The things they did, they things they said. Where are they? THey are preserved in your memory. Recall them, and salute them.

675 But junkies are not exactly the sort of practical people who will plan ahead and stock up a year's supply of their dope. Guy carrying that much is probably a supplier to the street dealers. Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at January 01, 2018 12:07 AM Would say so, yes. Also, even if you planned to stock up on that much, the lure of making $$$ off the stock would probably be too great. It'd get sold. Plus, having a lot of stuff in hand is not really a good idea. Apart from inevitably cranking up your use, the best idea is NOT have a large stash, but to keep it turning over and maintain your needs over a relatively short period of time. You have a large stash? That's a huge bust risk (there goes all your $$$ and dope), or even a hit by unscrupulous people to rip you off (like a bust but you might end up dead). It brings heat you don't want and can be mostly avoided by turnover.

749 Here's to a hopeful New Year. A draining of the swamp. A dying off of sterile elitists and blue urban cesspools. A successful repelling of the foreign invasions designed to create "shiny new Democrats". And a resurgence of middle America. May it once again serve as the main source of vitality for all industries in this nation, or barring that, let it reconstruct its own institutions independently and become a power unto itself.

I swear I can hear at least one, if not more, full auto's going off. In fact I can time how long it takes him to reload inbetween bursts. (and then the 7 shot and 9 shot clips are easy to count, as are the 10 shot glocks) I swear, my little East Texas town could outgun most 3rd world countries.

You know, except for the Morons who've met in meatspace, we wouldn't know anyone else if we were to pass them on the street. But there's a bond amongst the Horde that's difficult to describe to the rest of the world. I still think Ace should gather all the Morons together and make a conservative think tank out of this place. For a slight phenomenal fee, of course. I could sure use the money. And the level of expertise that's evident here is something else I've found nowhere else on that Intarwebz thingy.

I would imagine that's not true but it's still difficult. We have trucks, we help friends move and I'm getting too old for that. Moving sucks. My friend that has rich parents had movers move and pack everything out of their lake house for renovations. The movers bubble wrapped toothpaste and toiletries individually. You'd think movers would make it easier but unpacking everything was a nightmare.

The rational part of my mind says this is all nonsense. But their is Scots blood that runs in my veins. Both sides from way back. They said when I was a little kid, the first time I heard bagpipes I was transfixed. I love them, and hearing them just puts me in a state of mind I can't describe with words. So, there may be some "Old Long Since" somehow flowing in my blood from a long time ago indeed.

Prayers up for Slappy. And for anyone else who needs them. Good wishes abound on this other special night when life is again renewed and reflected upon. I really mean that. It says in the Bible that what you reap, so shall you sow. That's another way of saying "what goes around, comes back around to you." May we plant the seeds of goodness, not for ourselves directly, but for those who are in need of things of goodness at a rough point in their lives. Which would be pretty much all of us. May God Bless us, each and every one.

For them what can't abide blackeyed pea stew, blackeyed pea salad.  Frozen peas are best.  Don't cook them long.  Make like 3 bean salad, substituting honey for sugar and adding some fresh poblano chiles.  Looks kind of like confetti.

Just what it sounds like: .22 long rifle shells loaded with very fine birdshot. Good for offing pigeons in steel-clad pole barns, because the tiny lead shot won't pierce the steel.

Posted by: Bro' Country at December 31, 2017 08:36 PM (d6iST)

878 What's really, really amusing is that the Fake News and the Deep State revealed their political "COLLUSION" by attempting to divert attention from the fake Russian Dossier being used to acquire FISA warrants for the illegal and unethical and treasonsous wire tapping and surveillance of a Political campaign by a sitting President and his annointed successor.

Our country has always prided itself on the non violent and generally polite and above board means of the succession of power compared to the means used in other countries.

Of course the left can't be bothered to uphold that tradition.

And they were outed within HOURS by the citizenry.

We now can certify to the satisfaction of even the most punctilious of doubters that:

The press acts as a partisan purveyor of propaganda for the Left and the Democrat Party

That the Left holds nothing sacred and will violate any law or ethic or tradition to acquire and/or maintain political power.

That ALL who claim membership in the Democrat Party are as complicitous as those at the top and thus must share the blame and the punishment.

It is likely that one could hold the opinion that the Democrat party is an enemy of the United States of America and it's citizens and that they would not hesitate to join forces with any of the US's enemies if it meant they would be in control.

They are not worth playing fair with. Any Republican that does should be immediately suspect of being:
A: in cahoots with them
OR
B: a complete and utter fool or imbecile.

889 What is a shot shell? They're little miniature shotgun shells. Relatively wide spread, good for close range for varmints like snakes. Lots of folks will load them in increasingly potency: 2 rat shots, 2 normal bullets, then something a bit more high-powered, like Hornets. And hope you never get towards the more HP loads. And good on you for your restraint, not knowing what's beyond your target and all.

921 Brother Cavil, I was just talking about my dad tonight. it's been 19 years since he passed on. Since he died, I've been without my best protector. It's a different world without your dad. All I can do is try to be the kind of forgiving, generous and understanding parent he was to my kids. in his name.

Or just acting like it. 

So, no.  Don't be a hot mess.  That's just annoying and high decibel.

994 kindletot, I don't know about co-authoring with McMasters. he was the solo author of the book I listened to, in my truck, on the CD player. his first instruction: don't quit smoking YET. smoke more than ever before. suck deeper, and chain smoke until you're finished with this book.... that was exactly what i wanted to hear!

Posted by: booknlass at December 31, 2017 09:49 PM (CXrpl)

995 There is something about smoking more than the nicotine hit. They've done studies on this. You can give a person the same nicotine hit IV as they get from smoking a cigarette, and they don't get the same satisfaction. There is something else about the delivery via tobacco smoke that enhances the nicotine hit, and I don't think they've figured it out fully yet. It's why nicotine replacement stuff like gum, patches, lozenges, etc. just isn't as good. Vaping is the closest, but it's still not quite the same thing.

Posted by: publius, the Persistent Poperin Pear at December 31, 2017 09:51 PM (8O3HH)

1015 Webster's defines "hot mess" as something that is a state of extreme disorder or disarray or a person who is such, being disorganized, disheveled, or self-destructive. And it also can mean a person who is also attractive and sexy at the same time. This latter definition is sort of the connotation that the term brings to mind to me. If I hear a gal is a hot mess, well, she's a mess, but hot as hell.

1032 Vaping is the closest, but it's still not quite the same thing. Posted by: publius, the Persistent Poperin Pear at January 01, 2018 02:51 AM (8O3HH) Not quite, but yeah, much closer than anything else. If you spring for one of the pens from an actual shop, instead of the gas station e-cigs, a decent shop will also let you try different fluid ratios (they mix it right there) so in addition to the nicotine level and flavorings, you can pick a level of... glycerine, I think? which determines how much "volume" you feel when you pull. It really does almost feel like the real thing. It's worth trying the real kits and skipping the gas station cigs IMO. Most decent shops will get you out the door with a refillable rechargeable pen about the size of a Sharpie and maybe 5-10ml of your custom-mixed fluid in a starter package for about $25 which is what, three packs on my home planet? God only knows how much 3 packs costs in NY or CA.

Both my PC and my cardiologist are good with me vaping.  As my cardiologist told me: "It's not the nicotine that kills you. It's all the other crap in cigarettes that kills you."


Also, I've ratcheted down to 1.5mg nicotine in my juice, having started at 12mg a little over two years ago.  I should be nicotine free in 3-4 months.  Then I'll vape at 0mg nic for a few months, then quit altogether.

1053 There are some beneficial effects of nicotine as well. It's sort of verbotten to speak of them, because they think it promotes tobacco use. Nicotine can act as a brain stimulant, and there's some evidence it helps prevent Alzheimer's. Smoking would always help my thinking/concentration I thought. At it likely does.

Posted by: publius, the Persistent Poperin Pear at January 01, 2018 03:19 AM (8O3HH) It's not emotional. Follow the money. There are three major entities that are opposing vaping: 1. Governments, who make money from tobacco taxes 2. Tobacco companies, who make money from selling cigarettes 3. The pharmaceutical industry, who makes money from selling nicotine gum and patches This combination, with the help of their paid whores in Congress, is aiming to either put the independent e-cig companies out of business or buy them out and take them over. The "tobacco settlement" some years ago ended up with the big companies taking over the small ones, and massive increases in taxes for the government. "Banking reform" in 2008/2009 led to big banks swallowing up small ones. The same phenomenon is playing out here.

Posted by: Miley, the Duchess at January 01, 2018 03:21 AM (cu8/f) If you smoke a pack a day at $8 a pack jersey prices that's about $250 per month. it costs maybe $30 a month rolling your own. That's $220 saved. New York is like $11 a pack, that's like $330 per month, so that's $300 saved. That's if you smoke 1 pack a day, and I see people buying 2 packs a day like they free, and if you were doing that in nyc at 11 bucks a pop you're pissing away 660 a month, so you would save 600 month. Ok, you're not going to buy a Ferrari , but you can easily buy something pretty damn nice with savings like that.

Time, temperature, gasoline, mileage, trip odometer, gear in, tune playing, track #, duration, cruise control setting, lane assist, outside temperature warning, backup camera display, bluetooth stuff, text message received... I could go on. All tools for a quick glance by an alert driver. But in the hands of a fool the tools can be a weapon of distraction. A four thousand pound weapon.

1092 As our Country rapidly grows stronger and smarter, I want to wish all of my friends, supporters, enemies, haters, and even the very dishonest Fake News Media, a Happy and Healthy New Year. 2018 will be a great year for America! Posted by: Acme Trucking Enterprises, White Truck Division at January 01, 2018 05:40 AM (2FqvZ) ======== That's far more gracious than anything I'd ever think to say, especially if I were in his position. Far more gracious than anything I've seen coming from the media. But he's the Nazi.

1093 Well, two ships, night, some assembly etc. I guess. And a number of folks who either partied well into the night, understandable, or are wearing out those f5 keys.

1094 First cup Skip? You're usually a bit ahead of me.

1095 it's an absolute overload. Posted by: Acme Trucking Enterprises, White Truck Division at January 01, 2018 06:17 AM (2FqvZ) We just talked about that here at our house. It seems quite dangerous. I can scroll thru the driver's display with steering wheel buttons. I have a touchscreen in the console for media. Reading is not driving.

1096 And yes Ero, you're alive. Hope you don't have to w.o.r.k. today.

Posted by: teej at January 01, 2018 01:30 AM (BN/jk)

1097 But we are driving 55 mph hilly and curvy roads up to 70. So we have to now watch out for drivers doing this stuff while being next to them.

1098 Hope the games are on the radio later. Goooo Sooners! And Clemson. Though I should be pulling for 'Bama. Their record against Oklahoma ain't exactly, shall we say, sparkling. And here's to hoping Mr Mayfield is over the flu.

1100 We just talked about that here at our house. It seems quite dangerous. I can scroll thru the driver's display with steering wheel buttons. I have a touchscreen in the console for media. Reading is not driving. Posted by: OldDominionMom at January 01, 2018 06:29 AM (GzDYP) On the steering wheel -- whole 'nother story. At least ten buttons. Volume up/down, track change forward/backward, display stroll, media change choice AM/FM, flash drive, satellite, bluetooth... then there's the windshield wipers forward and back, cruise control setting, manual and automatic headlight control. I'm sure I'm forgetting half of the stuff. These vehicles are built for people with genius level IQ's. I'm not sure letting people with less than that number behind the wheel is a good idea. But your son should stay profitable if the loses don't wipe out the premiums.

1101 Think what a pilot or a F-1 driver has to do, ever since my USAF days in late 70's thought heads up displays might be a good idea for cars. Vital information would be shown onto your windshield so you can see it but never take your eyes off whats in front.

1104 Onto 2nd cup, want to make apple pancakes so I have leftovers for tomorrow, have to be gone by 4:45am to go to the People's Republic of New Jersey.

1105 I'm here teej, was checking out the cookbook. I'm going to have so much fun! No sleep for me yet tonight , insomnia hit hard. I was going to ask about a good version of "walking in Jerusalem" Thanks! You have anything fun planned today?

1106 Skip, your work on that brewpub is gorgeous!

Posted by: OldDominionMom at January 01, 2018 01:54 AM (GzDYP)

1107 Just trying to stay warm AK. And that Diamond Rio version is a good one. I don't think it's the first one I heard by them though. Maybe that first one was live and on the tv? Been a lot of years. But those boys can really play.

1109 One from yesterday? I didn't do the wall painting of course but did all framing for walls and bar, put baseboard and corrugated metal up, some drywall and finishing, ceilings in bathrooms and lots of other stuff.

Posted by: Skip at January 01, 2018 01:58 AM (aC6Sd)

1110 I'm going to try out some cookie recipes first obviously. Then the less important stuff.

Posted by: AmericanKestrel at January 01, 2018 02:00 AM (IDhUW)

1111 Cookies? Shall I send you my shipping address?

Posted by: teej at January 01, 2018 02:03 AM (BN/jk)

1112 Well, the PB cookie recipe on p.50 works like a champ. Made a couple hundred of them for Christmas distribution. G'mornin' everyone !

1114 http://blueprintbrewco.com Saw a shoo-fly pie recipe in the book, if you never had it give it a shot.

1116 Wish I had those mad skillz to put on this old house Skip. And a few tools I don't have. And about 5K to put on drywall and carpet. And a body about 20 years younger. And...

1117 Saturday had a call from a former co-worker, a bunch of us get together this time of year and we are going to meet up at the Blueprint brewery . Worked with these guys 24 years before the company went under.

1118 G'night AK. Sleep the sleep of the just.

1119 Aaand PDT has tweeted his first of 2018: "The United States has foolishly given Pakistan more than 33 billion dollars in aid over the last 15 years, and they have given us nothing but lies & deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools. They give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more!" Yay ! Happy New Year indeed !

1121 Hmm, that PB recipe is one I want to try along with the one on the next page. I never have had shoo fly pie so I want to try that too.(but I'm a little concerned about CNN's recommendation.) Email me an address teej and we'llsee what happens. You know they are best straight out of the oven tho right?

Posted by: AmericanKestrel at January 01, 2018 02:13 AM (IDhUW)

1122 I like the way Trump fight$ back. Like sure, Pakistan didn't know Ben Laden was in the country. Like we were born yesterday or something.

1123 Must have been cold in Britain. I can't find the Daily Mail's annual montage of people puking in the streets.

1124 Pakistan didn't know Ben Laden was in the country. The name on the mailbox said Old Ben Lahden. How where they to know?

1127 I don't use the new Saturn ( if thats what its called) browser for AoSHq, I like the way it is layed out but its constantly waiting for web sites. Its slower than dial up.

Posted by: Skip at January 01, 2018 02:22 AM (aC6Sd)

1128 Too slow? Hold on, I'll tweak the settings on your computer. No need for JavaScript, we'll turn that off. Interesting stuff in your video folder, I'll get back to that in a minute... Okay. Try that.
