I think I'll refrain from the dehydrating ingredient, but have the rest :)

That works, too. Especially when I need relief at work.

Speaking of relief, my stomach is grumbling.
Not sure if it wants a juicy bacon cheeseburger or a grilled SPAM and cheese and tomato sandwich.

I've picked up another cold/deadly man flu :( What would the koalas recommend?



Hot milk with rum and honey is #7's recommendation:) Get well soon my friend.

In an 8-ounce coffee mug -
2 tsp honey
1 or 2 shots blended (NOT Single Malt) Scotch Whiskey (or your favorite hard liquor, but whiskey or run seem to work best)
1 good squirt of lemon juice
Coffee, tea, or hot water to fill

Stir to disolve honey

Also works well on a cold winter night, even if you don't have a cold/flu...

Winning after work. 2 hours mandatory overtime today and tomorrow, so we don't have to work Saturday. Looking forward to a real day off, not just another Sunday.

I dont necessarily need to meet the cow just because i like burgers.

I will never understand to my dying day how people can eat what they have previously seen alive. There are restaurants where you can point to a fish swimming in a tank. They will catch it, kill it, and cook it. 15 minutes later there it is dead on your plate. Totally horrific. Yes I do eat meat fish and poultry, but I am becoming more veggie as time goes by.

Back in the day, a large majority of humans got their food by hunting it down and killing it, just like all the rest of the carnivores in the forest or jungle. It is only in modern times that so many have become detached from the methods of procuring our meat. My father was a hunter and fisherman in his youth in Wisconsin. I have fished but not hunted. I don't know if I could kill and butcher a cow or a turkey or a deer. I have friends who do, I'm grateful that I don't have to.

There are some who say that vegetables scream silently when they are picked from the vine or pulled from the ground. Whatever the case may be, whatever we eat has to live, and die, before we can eat it. That is the way of the world.

Winning on a very foggy morning.
Heading out to breakfast soon.
Hoping the sun breaks through,
so I can do some garden work between football games.
Upright and functional, therefore winning.

With rain comes the Tulefog. Not to bad yet. The sun is said to make an appearance today. We shall see.

Here are some stats
http://www.cnrfc.noaa.gov/awipsProducts/RNOWRKCLI.php


The reporting station for Visalia is Hanford, about 10 miles west. Tulare, where Vic used to live, is about 10 miles south of me.

Saw some sun Saturday afternoon, during a break at work. Looking out my window at thick fog - can just barely see the houses on the corner of my cul-de-sac, about 100 yards away. It's been worse, but not lately.

Man am I glad there's a proper fireplace in here :)

As am I. A roaring blaze in the hearth, a mug of cocoa, just the thing on a cold rainy night. Can't use the one in my home until I get it inspected and the chimney cleaned - been too many years since the last time we used it. And the stupid air pollution rules on when and what you can burn,
