Another is having a dustbuster beside the bed to vacuum up biscuit crumbs :)

Another is using your tummy button for the salt when eating celery in bed.


Merciful heavens!!!

Nice, yeah I just wish I had 6 panels on My roof to lower My bill, so far I'm told it's impossible.

We went solar this spring. You've got to have a roof with lots of life in it to make the investment worthwhile.

Several of you have posted here and there that you are caring for loved ones who are elderly and/or ill. Often our loved ones are eating poorly and we want to get a little meat on their bones.

Here is a high protein/high fat recipe that will help you feed your loved ones. I have never met a senior citizen who has not enjoyed this dish. It makes a tasty breakfast if you don't want it for dessert.

Baked Vanilla Custard

Ingredients

water
1 tsp vegetable oil
2 egg yolks (I use the left-over whites to make sea foam meringue cookies)
3 whole eggs
1/2 to 2/3 cup sugar (I use a "heaping" half cup)
1/8 tsp table salt
3 cups whole milk
1/2 - 2/3 cup heavy cream
1.5 - 2 tsps vanilla
nutmeg

Steps:

Fill a tea kettle with water and set it to boil

Find a small baking dish with high sides (I use a small souffle pan)

Find a larger baking dish that the small baking dish you are using fits into comfortably. You want a couple of inches around the small baking dish.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees

Lightly oil the inside of the small baking dish, wiping out any excess oil.

Mix the milk and cream together in a small saucepan and scald it. (This means bring it almost to a boil. It should be very hot, but not boiling.)

Blend the whole eggs with the yolks.

Whisk in the sugar and salt.

Temper the eggs with the hot milk/cream. (This means add only tiny bits of milk to the egg mixture at a time, and whisk like crazy while doing it. Once you have tempered in about half the liquid, you can just add the last half and whisk more.)

Whisk in the vanilla.

Strain the custard mix into the small baking dish.

Sprinkle some nutmeg on top.

Place the small baking dish inside the larger one.

Place the whole thing on an oven shelf.

Carefully pour the boiling water into the big baking dish. It should come about half way up to the custard line that is in the small baking dish.

Bake custard in its water bath for an hour.

Carefully remove.

Let cool, then chill it several hours in the fridge.

Was checking NASA's website for a good picture of the fires in the Western US. I could not find 1 good one that showed it all. But here is a mind blowing number. According to NASA over 7 million acres have burned as of 8/17. That 10 time the annual average. I wonder how much carbon that has released?

Doesn't matter. It isn't human activity carbon like from an electric plant, which is the only kind that warms and acidifies. ;)

Mister Charpentier, are you trolling???!!!

Why perish the thought my dear lady. Just restating the scientific fact, as interpreted by politicians, that only human caused carbon counts, natural carbon is exempt because it can't be regulated. ;)

All the more reason to listen to scientists over politicians.

Yes, I've had the pleasure of seeing The Lion King in SF with our niece Kathryn and our nephew Mark, followed by the pleasure of seeing it again in NY with our niece Emily.

One unwanted(to most) visitor that bird feeders attract indirectly are snakes. Obviously for the 'friends of Mickey' not the seeds.

The circle of life.

We had a pair of red shouldered hawks around and about here in the spring. I thought they might raise young, but I never saw any fledglings. After a couple of months the hawks moved on.

There was probably not enough rodents for them to hunt..

There should have been! I feed the birds like crazy, and I'm quite sure that in doing so I inadvertently feed the er... uh... friends of Mickey. There are several acres of open land behind us that should have been full of rodents. I'm guessing they were having trouble finding a tree that was exactly to their liking.
