Joe Walsh – Funk #49
What’s on your mind tonite…?
Aloha, lln pups…! I’m up at Subaru for just a short while, they canceled the night after we just got here, 70 mph winds are blowing up here…!
Rocky Mtn Way…
I kid ya not…! 8-(
egad tut… that’s not sounding like paradise at all
Aloha, Suz…! How’s your hamlet tonite…? The winds are brutal, I’m actually glad they did cancel, we’re fixing to head down shortly…!
It was snowing this morning when I woke up — and more expected tonight. Right now we are getting reading to leave, but still Ewan McGreggor and his lovely brother are educating us about the Battle of Britain. I LOVE these boys.
Aloha, Christine…! Did it snow out the Indians first game of the season…?
all that glorious sunshine poofed :( cloudy most of the day and rain’s in the forecast starting mid-week.
I did not look on the news, but judging by our weather just a few miles away, I’ll say no.
What a week, huh?! It’s Monday, and I’m weary. Got some depos to do; places to be; people to see. Hope the Lake stays relatively calm for a few days.
Glad you got up the mountain, CT, and glad you are coming down. And especially glad that you had some quality time with the munchkin.
Well, one last tune before I head down the mtn… Life’s Been Good…
have a safe ride tut
Aloha, Dearie…! I’ll try and have some pics tomorrow nite of the munchkin…!
Aloha Oe…! *g*
Good evening all.
Hi, eCAHN. I’ve been wondering if you’ve had time to think about why Planned Parenthood is often situated in poorer neighborhoods? Although we do have a clinic in Ventura County in a relatively mixed neighborhood. I was just kind of offended to have it thought of as anything to do with eugenics. But, hey, whatever. If terminating the pregnancy of a child with no brain stem is eugenics, then so be it. I’m just awfully glad that my daughter’s tubal pregnancy got to be terminated before she died. So glad she didn’t live in Virginia or one of the heartless states. She’s too close to North Dakota for my liking!
Hi folks. Well tonight I made a new chili I have never made before and it turned out really interesting. Pork and Tomatillo chili.
It’s interesting I had chili at a place called “Chili Up” and they had this as one of their menu items. I decided I wanted to make it myself and I did.
The one I made is not like the one at Chili Up but it’s still good.
My honest answer to your question, Dearie, would be too dark for even the middle of the night.
And, as I’ve remarked in both my comments, it’s an internet search so I’m waiting to see if a counterargument pops into my lap.
What I have experienced so far as a general rule in delving into hidden agendas* is that those who want to keep them hidden do not address the subject, but rather accuse the questioner of something nefarious. So it’s difficult to get evidence on the other side.
*A simple example of a hidden agenda is the medical industry which conned everyone into calling it health care, when it is neither. Medicine is a small contributor to health, lifestyle & biology being far more important.
Wow, that recipe has some interesting ingredients. I’ll have to give it a try next time I get ground venison, the only meat I make chili from.
What do tomatillos taste like? I’ve never used them.
I’m with you on “health care.” But I just think abortion services should be available. I don’t care if the girls are slutty or stupid or just unlucky. I just think (and have witnessed) that unplanned pregnancies often make a mess of potential lives == both the impregnated and the eventual offspring. Babies are babies when they breathe. I’m okay with cutting women some slack. But, hey, that’s just me.
I’m looking to reconnect with some people in the high tech world, which to me is the ‘real’ world. I realize that I have a bad attitude toward some of them. I think I worry that I’ll get sucked into their world, it’s very easy for me to do. Then I will feel stupid, broke, that I’ve wasted years doing social justice work in “politics” which counts against me instead of enhancing what I can do.
I also fell that I’m going to get ‘sweaty’ What do I mean by that? You know that look and action you see people get into when they are running around? Instead of being calm or in control you are actually being whipsawed by other people or things.
I’m not against abortion, on the contrary. I also agree with you about birth being a decisive point.
I’m trying to figure out if the huge percentage of abortions that poor black women allegedly undergo are voluntary or strongly suggested by an authority figure. In an emotional and physical matter like that, it’s easy for the patient to be manipulated.
You know I don’t really know, since they are all part of the chili. They are green and they look like tomatoes from the outside. The inside doesnt’ look like a tomato though.
Venison would be PERFECT for this. You brown it first and then cook it low and slow for 2 hours. I used a Guiness dark larger for the beer.
The pork is so tender it melts in your mouth. Really nice. I took a 4 1/2 lb cut of pork shoulder and cut out the fat and cut it into 1/2 inch segments.
Why do you think of the high tech world as being real? Disclosure: I’ve reached the luddite stage of life, so nothing seems less real to me. High tech is gadgets designed to break or go obsolete in 2 years, like cars with tail fins in the 1950s, 60s.
My usual source of ground venison bagged only one deer this past season, so I’m not sure how much he will have to give me. The chili I make is the standard variety with hot peppers, tomatoes, kidney beans, the usual rest of ingredients. I freeze it in single serving containers & enjoy it the rest of the year. Have to contact Chris to find out about this year’s venison stock. He owes me bc I let him hunt on my property.
Because they paid me to do work in the past.
Crap, if one of my girls got ‘accidentally’ pregnant, I’d encourage her to abort and then get her damned act together. Now the Right is going after contraception. It wasn’t paid for when I was young and the pill was new… I paid. And I could afford to pay. What about young girls who cannot pay? Yes, yes, I know…. they should put an aspirin between their knees, but jeez….
And, hey, I was the Last American Virgin…. and it didn’t work out all that well!
I toned down the heat the chili because I don’t like it too hot. The flavor in is one is great and will be even better tomorrow!
One of the vendors at the local farmers market is Mexican & sells tomtillos. I’ve not bought any yet bc I don’t know what to do with them.
My TX friend gave me a Mexican cuisine cookbook, real Mex (author prepped WH dinner when Mex prez came on state visit). The only things I’ve make from it are guacamole & ceviche.
A propos of nothing, one of my RAs, about 20 years ago, said it must have been nice to live after the pill and before AIDS. I said: It was.
Trying to understand why people feel so strongly on both sides of the issue. Some, as in the eugenicists, want to limit global pop, esp of inferiors. Then, there is another side who feel just as strongly that any form of limiting pop, whether in general or as an individual matter, is sinful.
Why can’t we make our own decisions without pressure from the outside.
Of Course I was dealing with Carholic guilt. I was so uptight about sex that I could not even dream about it!
I used to do a whole comedy routine about it.
Carholic girls and what the Nuns and Priests told us about sex.
Catholic Guilt is Forever! At least there is something consistent in this lifetime. *g*
Got over Catholic guilt at age 13 when I became an atheist. Admit emotional fear of hell took longer to overcome.
But I’d already OD’d on R.C.ism. Went to mass every day for about 2 years. Finally woke up one morning and said to self: This ain’t doing shit for me, why do I keep doing it. It felt so good when I stopped.
That was around the time of Nun’s Story book (1956) and movie (1959). At my then tender age, it made devoting one’s life to Christ & the church seem like the highest devotion one could have.
I look back & say, what could I have been thinking.
Recently listened to a Yale course on NT. One of the lectures was about sects that devoted themselves to celibacy. I forget the dates, maybe 100 or 200CE. (I’ll dredge up the link.) Besides being an historically impt aspect of developing Xtianism (not yet an organized religion), a physical consideration was that birth was closely associated with death. Women died in childbirth in big numbers, high infant mortality. Some cogent arguments why men chose celibacy; can’t remember them.
I think this is the lecture, one of the best on the course.
