Chive Sunday

Because we need a new poat, and this made me laugh.

 

Mrs. Pupster brought bacon to my family reunion.

 

For the ladies and Jewstin

For the boys and 3 vodka Cyn:

  1. This poat is aerocar awesome.

    Monday night after call and office…

  3. All poat content from here:

  4. Hey Jimbro, are you on the Medical Mutual network?

  5. Just got through the BBF gifs Pupster. That volleyball one was mesmerizing. Hope work stuff sorts itself out in your favor.

  6. I don’t know what that is. If it’s an insurance plan I’d have no idea. Since I joined the hospital in ’07 they handle all my contracts. For the most part we take almost anything for insurance.

  7. Only Two

  8. Nessie says “Hi” to some pedestrians. Fence is about 50″ tall.

  9. http://is.gd/zY4AQR

    Hahahahahah. Cyn?

  10. I just searched in Medical Mutual and under “Select Your Network” I picked First Health and, lo and behold, I’m on the network. I didn’t search the other networks but I’d guess I’m on it. Like I said, we’re the place that takes everyone regardless of payor (payer?) so it’s not surprising.

  11. Bangor General?

  12. Ha Ha Ha!

    Icehole.

  13. Pups, your fence is shrinking.

  14. I’m thinking about bringing Boy2 up to consult with you, eat lobster and see Maine, I’ve never been. Like to miss black fly season.

  15. That first pic made me laugh and laugh and laugh.

    Youngest is gonna hang out here with me by the pool today with her puppy. This is a good thing

  16. Eastern Maine Medical Center. BG was the old name, well before my time.

  17. Check your Pupster mail

  18. I am starting to think I should stop wearing traditional Indian clothes at home. A T-shirt and shorts are much better in the summer.

  19. holy shit this car has a sunroof. I didn’t even notice that till today.

    I am a savvy car shopper

  20. Scary brown dude, how are the boys?

    Also see India, climate: Ghurka shorts

  21. Dave, nice choice! RAV4 is the best crossover unless you want to go offroad.
    The best part: it has a Camry engine.

  22. Boys are doing great. They will be 7 year old in Sept, in case you are wondering how long we have known each other. And we already knew each other for a couple of years when they were bornd.

  23. Seven!!! Ho Lee Fuk. That’s amazing.

    Mom had an 04 Camry we gave to youngest, 140,000 miles and I never sunk a big dollar in it for anything. The Rav is a nice ride.

    I’m selling the 2000 Sierra now. God I loved that truck.

    Hopefully Mrs. Dave stays on road.

  24. Is that the truck you drove to Dallas last year? Or a different one?

  25. That’s the older one.. I still drive an 06 Silverado

  26. I’m picturing all the dirt and grass in that kid’s foot and wondering how many people in the old days ended up with amputations from that sort of wound. Probably all, if they didn’t die first.

  27. That was exciting. A tornado just landed on me followed by a hail storm that looked an awful lot like a snow storm.

  28. And the temperature dropped 40 degrees in about 20 minutes.

  29. At least it was a small tornado. I don’t see much damage anywhere.

  30. Whoa, that’s pretty scary. Dropped on you as in right where you are?

  31. Whoa Jew, have you been particularly evil lately or something?

  32. He might’ve been okay without so-called modern medicine Lippy. It would have hurt much more. Good clean water, soaking it over and over, clean bandages regularly, wine and honey compresses, etc. it wouldn’t be closed and would need to heal from the inside out. Tetanus would be a threat. Young, healthy kid would most likely pull through.

  33. Jimbro, there is an old home-made recipe passed down in my mother’s family called Grandmussie Salve. It draws out thorns and such that break off under the skin. It has a strong smell of beeswax.

  34. Up here in Aggieland bringing kid to the A&M track camp

  35. Avatard check one, two. One, two.

  36. FUCH!

  37. Cool, TJ, just think of all the memories your daughter will have.

    “One time at Track Camp. . .”

  38. If you have the recipe I’d like to have it. I had a kid with both tibias crushed by a car a few years ago and needed to do fasciotomies on one leg for compartment syndrome. Part of the wound just wouldn’t heal and the home health nurse used something called Medihoney on it. Worked like a charm.

  39. Ok.

    had my 7 year old fix my login for me. Der.

  40. You are most welcome to the recipe — I’m going home soon and will look for it. It probably came from Switzerland or Germany with the Amish/Mennonite ancestors.

  41. HAHAHA, Chumpo, your 7 year-old bested you tech-wise?

    You must be so abashed/proud.

  42. Kill me nao!!! Getting a play by play of the LPGA British Open. Still more exciting than World Cup.

  43. Jimbro, you collect curandero type stuff?

  44. I had to look up curandero. It’s just an area of interest. Before we had all of what we consider standard treatments and cures people were doing the best they could with what they had. A lot of it worked and some was pure quackery. It’s naive to think we have a monopoly on effective cures and some of the old stuff works well. There is no way I could prescribe anything out of an herbalist’s medicine chest but the Medihoney thing is FDA approved so I can recommend it. I looked it up and they sell it on amazon. Do you have any good cures?

  45. Yep. It was a little tense.

  46. Pass this on to Leon for tomorrows MMM.
    Confused the hell out of me.

    http://imgur.com/gallery/mpuq81o

  47. Jimbro, my grandfather was a curandero. I wouldn’t let my Mom practice “Voodoo” on me. I know that there is a cornsilk tea for kidneys. I know that when we were little, my Mom would soak potatoes in vinegar and put them on our foreheads, chest, and underarms to draw out fever. MY MOM WAS A NURSE!!!! Like a real “I went to nursing school” nurse. Yerba Buena. The Cure: Vicks and tobacco up the butt for colds. (<<<<I have stories) Mustard packs. Marijuana as a salve for arthritis.

  48. I remember whiskey on a Q-tip for toothaches and tea bags on zits as a kid but nothing as far out as a Vicks/tobacco rectal rocket.

  49. My Grammo lived to be 100. Never had a cold. Swore by “The Cure”. My brother let my Mom do a “Paper Cone” for his earache. The ashes from the cone left little burns on him, but the smoke from the cone cleared the ear wax.

  50. Yeah Lippy, she puts me in my place.

    Marijuana fir arthritis?!!!
    oh man! now I feel a LOT of arthritis coming on.

  51. I love you guys, but I had to esplain the ice cream pic to Dan.

  52. Nice Shaman blog you have here.

  53. I just realized that my lawnmower turns 25 this year.

    I should give it an oil change.

  54. MOM!!! LOOK WHAT THE SHAMAN DID TO ME!!!

    http://tinyurl.com/o3p43on

  55. oh man! now I feel a LOT of arthritis coming on.

    Don’t forget the glaucoma, Chumpo! Just limp around and bump into things and Bob’s your uncle!

  56. Comment by osoloco11 on July 13, 2014 5:26 pm
    I love you guys, but I had to esplain the ice cream pic to Dan.

    What was his response?

  57. Marijuana was steeped in water and used as a salve on joints. You could bathe in it for arthritis that wasn’t joint specific. My grandparents grew it next to the yerba buena in their garden. My Grampo started smoking dope in 1927. He was 15. He stopped smoking when he went in the home in 2003.

  58. Y’all are a bunch of freaks.

  59. Excuse me sir, there is a NOSE ON YOUR FOREHEAD!!!

    That thing should have been harvested a while back — it is way too big for him.

    Back to folk medicine. I’ve read about mud and seaweed poultices used to draw out infection and goo. And something else using spiderwebs. Course that was just in novels.

  60. Glaucoma; check.

    In reality, I’ve never been much of a stoner. Once in a while, late at night, around a campfire, etc.
    At the end of the day, good ole All Co Haul, does me better than anything. Thanks for the Zombie recipe, MJ! I made a really good one after watching your vid.

  61. Glad you liked it, Chumpo.

  62. My Apache Father makes me this Poultice which is simply a BIG Grab of Pot steeped in Old Grandad for about a week. He gives me a mason jar of it twice a year. We use it on pulled muscles and aches and pains. I did a shot of it once just for kicks. I ended up painting the garage door four different colors.

  63. Oso, I love your family stories.

    Yesterday, in honor of Cyn and the Mai Tai talk, I had one at a Cuban restaurant. It was splendid and now I want a Zombie.

    *updates grocery (read: liquor store) list*

  64. The freaks comment was Dan’s response to 2 in the pink, 1 in the stink.

  65. I love MaiTai’s. Koloa Rum.

  66. Spiderwebs have coagulative properties.

  67. I don’t get it.

  68. Zombie grocery list:
    1. Rum
    2. Flexeril
    3. ???
    4. Wheeeeee!

  69. My Mom had a fistula. It just wouldn’t heal. The VA wouldn’t let her use any “Folk remedies”. I forget which one finally worked. All I know is 5 years ago come September, she was “Dead Mannie walking”. She’s still here.

  70. Greetings, cat fanciers and fancy cats.

  71. Yeah. Please don’t do an image search on fistula.

  72. Hi Sean.

  73. Meeeeeow

  74. Double 0 Sean, I really appreciated your Judas Priest reference the other night. It took me back a ways.

  75. >>>I just realized that my lawnmower turns 25 this year.
    I should give it an oil change

    Why the hell would you want to do that? You trying to break it?

  76. Thanks, Chumpo. I don’t know why, but that song popped into my head. I haven’t heard it in years. But that’s often how the derps are born.

  77. Just made bruschetta using basil from my herb garden. Didn’t have Italian bread though, so I toasted some rye bread and rubbed it with garlic.

    Have I crossed the streams here?

  78. I donated platelets today. They told me to avoid alcohol for 24 hours.

    Define “avoid”

  79. How’s the hammock working today Wiser? spill any innocent margaritas?

  80. Did feel good to check the “no” box when they asked if I smoke……

  81. you spilled blood instead. Aws.

  82. >>>How’s the hammock working today Wiser?

    No hammock today. It is tempting though.

    Looking forward to seeing you in AZ, chump. Glad to have you back hanging ’round these parts again.

    Now if only we could get KKA back…….

  83. I donated platelets today. They told me to avoid alcohol for 24 hours.

    Define “avoid”

    If someone throws a whiskey bottle at your head, you should maybe get outta the way.

  84. >>>>you spilled blood instead. Aws.

    It’s usually a two-arm deal, meaning there’s a needle in both arms and I can’t move either arm for the two+ hours it takes.

    Today, they did it with a single needle in one arm, leaving my other arm free to use my cell phone to read blogs and stuff.

    I was gonna send out a “selfless selfie”, but decided to just lie back and enjoy Amadeus instead.

  85. >>>If someone throws a whiskey bottle at your head, you should maybe get outta the way.

    I can do that.

  86. Yeah, people wander far and wide but The H2 Brand brings you back by and by.

    (slips into Hair Shirt)

  87. Did feel good to check the “no” box when they asked if I smoke……

    Good on you. Keep up the good work, wiser.

  88. Last night, I asked Dan if I needed to do “Anything” to the frozen pizza. He said “Take off the plastic”. That is such BS. I left the cardboard twice. I bought corn dogs, egg rolls, and fries for Mild Concussion Boy. He just kicked me out of the kitchen!!!

  89. Hair Shirt

    Eww.

  90. Define “avoid”

    Avoid telling them. OR, drink, but feel just a little bit like a rebel.

    Don’t know if you saw it from last night, but you handled can’t remember his name that called in, masterfully. You turned it into a comedy bit. Well done.

  91. >>>>Don’t know if you saw it from last night, but you handled can’t remember his name that called in, masterfully.

    Didya like that? We were in hysterics in the studio.

  92. >>>Avoid telling them.

    Perfect!

  93. I was howling! Seriously wondering if the neighbors were being disturbed-then I said fuck those foot stomping bastards!

    “Over”

  94. shit can’t find the title to the old truck.

    gotta go get one in the morning.

  95. It was a specific chapter in the Dinesh book that fueled the Costco dealio. The Jefferson one. He led up to it using quotes from Frederick Douglass etc. Almost a “Coors moment”. Sam’s “Reviewed the chapter in question” and drop shipped lots of books to Clubs. I have 1 copy left. Haven’t sold a copy of Hillary’s book in 3 weeks.

  96. He’s a further. I think furthers are the lowest form of life on the planet. I was waiting for him to go there. It would not have been funny if he had.

    I really hate that little turd for that reason alone. I think he knows better than to broach that subject with me.

  97. Oso, what is it about the chapter that’s making people fuss and what is a “Coors moment”?

    Educamate me!

  98. “Further”

    Auto cucumberage??

  99. Further = truther.

    Stupid kindle

  100. A “further?”

  101. Yep. Honda made a good mower in 1989.

    They stopped selling them in the US because they were expensive and nobody bought them. Well, some smart people did.

    25 years. Nothing but routine maintenance.

  102. Wait…. CostCo doesn’t like Frederick Douglass???

    RACISTS!!!!

  103. Hmmmm….. isn’t an oil-change considered routine maintenance?

  104. Frozen is on, in case anyone wanted to watch it.

  105. Back in the day Adolph Coors? opined that the best thing that ever happened to American Blacks was being brought to America as slaves. The chapter in Dinesh’s book basically excuses the fact that TJ was a slaveholder, because of his work on the Declaration of Independence. Dismisses America as a white man’s country and pokes holes in the reparations argument by using Black Americans to fight the “Racist” tag.

  106. Hmmmm….. isn’t an oil-change considered routine maintenance?

    Every 3000 miles. It takes a lot of yard to get 3000 miles.

  107. I’ve sold more copies of Thomas Paine than Frederick Douglas.

  108. Anybody want to build a snowman?

  109. Jay, my cousin just posted a vid of his 3 daughters singing that!!!

  110. So the 3/3rd is now deployed into a Forward Operating Base and my kid asked me what that was and I had to tell her what it was.

    She deserves to know. And I wish her guy had explained that too so when he gets back we gotta have a talk about being honest with someone you care about without regard to how you don’t want to make someone you care about fret about shit.

    He’s young. I didn’t know that when I was 25 either. Also nobody was shooting at me.

  111. >>>Frozen is on, in case anyone wanted to watch it.

    *shoots television

  112. Anybody want to build a snowman?

    *books plane to kill Jay as many times as it takes*

  113. >>>http://hazardous.com/merlin/kezintro.jpg

    I hate that guy as well.

  114. FOBBIT. That is good. For the most part. RL friend has been in Kabul for about a decade.

  115. >>Adolph Coors? opined that the best thing that ever happened to American Blacks was being brought to America as slaves.

    I have heard this quote before: after defeating George Foreman for the heavyweight title in Zaire, Muhammad Ali returned to the United States where he was asked by a reporter, “Champ, what did you think of Africa?” Ali replied, “Thank God my grand-daddy got on that boat!”

  116. >>>>Anybody want to build a snowman?

    why haven’t we banned Jay yet?

    Are we gonna have enough Hostages at TITs to make a quorum?

  117. Dinesh referenced Ali as well. Doesn’t matter.

  118. I’m selling the crap out of Frozen product. Why does the H2 H8 capitalism?

  119. Ahhh Dave, (hugs)

    She take it okay?

  120. There is a family of wild rabbits living behind my neighbors house.

    Usually my cats kill the little baby bunnies. But I guess they are getting slower, as they’ve not brought a single dead bunny home this season.

    It’s so cute watching the bunnies leap and hop across the yards.

  121. why haven’t we banned Jay yet?

    Love is an open door.

  122. My wieners chillax with the bunnies. SMH. We have a resident hawk and roadrunner that love the baby bunnehs.

  123. Fingers crossed for your future SiL, Dave

  124. why haven’t we banned Jay yet?

    He’s kept his trap shut about the old tabs, hasn’t he?

  125. My Belle Evangeline is sheer poetry from Disney. I didn’t watch for years because of the whole Oprah dealio and OMG we need a black princess!!!

  126. >>>Love is an open door.

    http://tinyurl.com/l9o35ft

  127. educate mee too.

  128. What language do they speak in What?

    Let it go.

  129. She’s sacked out on the sofa and staying the night I think.. her puppy is wriggling in between her and some cushions being a dog.

    I don’t know if she took it well. I do think she took it like a grown up. He did tell her he has a Purple Heart from gettin blown up on one of his last two things. She knows he is in harm’s way.

    She doesn’t like it. Don’t blame her, neither do I.

  130. >>>He’s kept his trap shut about the old tabs, hasn’t he?

    There is that…….

  131. and thanks

  132. Those rodents won’t look so cute after they mow down your herb garden.

  133. I remember when my nephew was there.

    Thankfully, he made it home safe.

    And hers will too.

  134. That’s rough, Dave.

    One of my favorite parts of We Were Soldiers was that it gave the stateside impact on the families of soldiers, what it meant to be a soldier’s wife, family, and loved one. They are involved, too. Maybe not getting shot at, but plenty hazardous duty too.

  135. He’ll be ok, at least he knows what the hell he’s doing. Thanks.

    I’m glad your nephew got back ok too

  136. >>>Those rodents won’t look so cute after they mow down your herb garden.

    So far they have been smart enough to stay out of our yard. Might have something to do with the two dogs……

  137. Pee outdoors. Keeps the critters away. Attracts some predators though.

  138. Thanks Jay. One of the stupid parts of the 11th Air Assault Division (Test) that became the 1st CAV which fought at Ia Drang was the goddamn Army made no provision for notification of casualties. That scene with Col. Hal Moore’s wife was too danged real.

    They have their shit together now, but back then they were fumbly fucks about everything back home.

    I know I’m being a jerk about this shit it’s just important to me and I tell you all about it because you love me and I love you back.

    You are my friends and that means the world to me.

  139. Urgh, I could use some kind of poultice thing. I thought I tore the skin at the edge of a fingernail, but it keeps swelling up, so I think there’s a splinter or something in there. Hurts a lot.

  140. Oso, Dave’s future SiL won’t be a FOBBIT for long. That’s just a waystation until they relieve the other unit out at the COPs.

  141. It’s also important for me to get it out somewhere not in front of my kid and I do have to get it out

  142. *votes against banning Jay*

  143. I wasn’t really making fun of FOBBITs. I really H8 the ROEs that are guys are tasked with.

  144. Do you have hydrogen peroxide?

  145. Dave, are you following 3CR’s Facebook page?

  146. Wiser is right about The Beau, Dave. He’ll be O.K.
    Sounds like he is a very busy group. Professional.
    i remember when my little brother was serving at a FOB in Iraq. The concept of a shooting war changed for me with his added perspective.
    He was in a busy company as well. He told me that his confidence was in the training and in his people.

    All Prayers to Beau, Dave.

  147. I second bcoch.
    Banning, no.
    Caneing, yes.

  148. Are? FM. OUR. That was BS.

  149. Epsom salt soaks are good too

  150. I know I’m being a jerk about this shit

    Man, why you even gotta say that. You’re being a dad and it’s fine.

    If we didn’t vent about shit going on in out real lives, all we’d have to talk about would be gardening and apparently that one animated movie that’s popular.

  151. Stolen joke……………

    A seriously depressed woman stands at the edge of a cliff, trying to get the nerve up to jump. A passing hobo stops and says “Since you’re about to kill yourself anyway, would you mind if we had sex first?”
    The woman said “Hell no, get away from me, you freak!”
    The bum turned to leave and muttered “Fine, I’ll just go wait at the bottom.”

  152. Thanks Chumpo.

    However, I will fully admit that I was quoting Frozen songs right along with Jay the other night.

    I have 7 year old and 4 year old daughters. We own the dvd, blu ray, every freaking mobile device we own has the soundtrack, dolls, books, dresses, nightgowns.

    Yes, I fully admit having danced and sang at the top of my lungs to Let It Go in my living room.

    #DadLife

  153. Soaking in hydrogen peroxide a couple of times a day, Scott.

  154. Caneing, yes.

    Uh oh, he’s gonna go medieval on me with a blowtorch and a pair of pliers, isn’t he?

  155. Bcoch, new magnetic playset at Sam’s Club. I sold 3 today.

  156. The other night was phat, bcoch. I’m just picking the scab on that old wound today.

  157. WDW opened 4 Frozen encounters for the Summer at Hollywood Studios.

  158. The other night was phat, bcoch. I’m just picking the scab on that old wound today.

    Oh. All you people look alike.

  159. WDW opened 4 Frozen encounters for the Summer at Hollywood Studios.

    3.5 hour wait at Epcot to meet Anna and Elsa a couple months ago.

    Fortunately, Mexico’s margarita/tequila stand was less than 50 yards away.

    Couple more and I might have made a pass at Elsa.

  160. Try rubbing some dirt on it, Pepe.

  161. >> Dave, are you following 3CR’s Facebook page?

    Yep. Saw the commander’s post today.

    Sean I don’t know what to say because I’ve never faced this stuff before, I’m gonna be fumbly and stupid but thank you. I’ll figure it out.

    Thanks Chumpo.

    BC, I danced with both my little girls to lots of Disney stuff but this was our fav

    the little girl who was in footy pjs with a pacifier in her mouth bouncing to that song with me is sacked out on the couch, and I’m glad she’s here

  162. Elsa? Anna is way cuter. (Today’s Betty/Wilma Betty/Veronica Ginger MaryAnn)

  163. Anna=cute

    Elsa=hot

  164. BTW, I was so disappointed in Dan. Whitey tighties at the ER. I finally got him to wear colored boxer briefs last year, and when his undies go public…JC Penney old school.

  165. But, Elsa is the Ice Queen.

  166. Why you H8N on Tiana? Rayciss!!!

  167. Pepe, do you see or feel the sliver at all? Old fashioned Elmers White Glue might get it; pour on, let it dry fully, pull away.

  168. Anna=cute

    Elsa=hot

    This was noticed.

  169. Has anyone seen Maleficent, yet?

  170. Never even heard of it, Oso.

  171. Where’s the Chief?

    Two men are playing a round of golf when they get stuck behind two women. Eventually one of the men walks over to ask if they can play through. He scuttles back and says, “When I got closer, I realized it was my wife and mistress,” he says. “You go and ask them instead.”

    The other one walks over to the women but hurries back and says, “Small world.”

  172. Betty > Wilma

    Veronica > Betty

    Ginger > Mary Ann

  173. My wife and I saw it, Oso. It’s not bad. The changed the story all around. Doesn’t resemble the original telling.

    But it’s not too bad.

  174. Angelina Jolie. Sleeping Beauty with a twist. EXCELLENT!!! Totes ruined my 2nd favorite Disney movie. (Not including the Fantasias)

  175. Bcoch, if you’re into 60 years of Disney continuity…

  176. I don’t get the Elmers thing. Why would that work better than tweezers?

  177. WTF, Sean? No wonder you like the Cubs and Dodgers!!! Betty Rubble is your only correct answer.

  178. Cyn is it monsoon season in the valley yet?

  179. The glue has worked for me like a champ, Scott; my eyes too weak not enough light to see the sliver and get with tweezers, but the glue flows and dries around it for me to pull from my foot.

  180. Well, Frozen is on again at 10:30 central, on Starz. In case you missed it.

    You’re welcome.

  181. As a matter of fact, Dave, just got a nice soaking a little bit ago, with winds that were successful at knocking out our power for about half an hour. We live near a fire station and hear the sirens going off after seeing some lightning right overhead. But alas, no haboob today.

  182. *ignores Jay by listening to a PF tune*

  183. Oh, that is pretty cool.

  184. One of my brothers works for Disney. He sent me a pic of him posing with the Frozen princesses. They were taller than him.

  185. Scandis.

  186. Frozen sounds stupid, I’ll never see it.

  187. If I could see it, I could dig it out. I think it’s under the side of the nail. I’ve got a microscope, so I’m great at getting splinters out. :)

  188. Roamy – how is Mr. RFH today?

  189. Metal and glass ones suck.

  190. Plans baseball game/Frozen double header just for Scott.

  191. Steel splinters such.

  192. Suck. Really H8 autocucumber

  193. I wondered hon, it starts about this time there

  194. So, how many meals did you last in the kitchen Oso? (I’m glad Dan is feeling better!)

  195. Cyn, about the same as yesterday. Back to square one, not able to eat or swallow. Pestering him to go to an ENT tomorrow.

  196. Listening to yesterday’s show. “Over!”

  197. Last night. Frozen Pizza. Dan made a crack about removing the plastic and cardboard. I started making dinner tonight. I was allowed to pre-heat the oven.

  198. Roamy, good luck with the pestering.

  199. Pestering him to go to an ENT tomorrow.

    If they can’t get him it, it’s time for a trip back to the ER, unfortunately.

  200. On our last trip to Epcot, meeting all the princesses that the Drunken Midgets wanted to see……

    Eldest midget was mortified that I wanted a picture.

  201. frozen 1

  202. Just found out RL friend has Stage 4 Lung Cancer. Yes, he smoked. FU everybody that asks. When someone gets AIDS, do we ask if they were butt pirates? I H8 cancer.

  203. SQUEEE!!! Jelly of Roamy’s bro!!!

  204. Oh God Oso, I’m so sorry for you and your friend

  205. Roamie….http://tinypic.com/r/2ewcjmv/8

  206. Thanks, bcoch, I intercepted your Roamy pic. (((Hugs))) Dave. Kind of a soap box issue for me. No one deserves cancer.

  207. http://www.gomerblog.com/2014/01/percocet/

    Off to fix an open forearm fracture. Kid fell off a van. Who lets their kid fall off a van? I hate summer trauma season.

    /stop whining

  208. Glad you are there for the darwinists, Jimbro.

  209. A Whole New World

  210. Great tune, Pups.

  211. Hmm, did wiser ban himself by mistake?

  212. That has to be snark, jimbro. Please.

  213. When someone gets AIDS, do we ask if they were butt pirates?

    Well, I know I do.

  214. Sean, I do too. Interfering with my narrative.

  215. FiL had kidney cancer. OK. Then he had prostate cancer. Still good. Stomach cancer. Like a boss. Skin cancer. It happens. Throat cancer. OMG did he dip? Smoke? Just a pipe? OMG Smoker.

  216. Nobody ever Oso. *hugs you back*

  217. I did lose 2 Uncles and my Dad to lung cancer. The brother that never smoked is fine. Anecdote isn’t data!!!! H/T DiT

  218. Sneaks extra hug from the goober in Tejas.

  219. Love the drunken midgets. I hope they remember that, or at least remember the effort Daddy went to for that.

  220. “When someone gets AIDS, do we ask if they were butt pirates?”

    I ask if they smoked.

  221. Smoked what?

  222. The hell? I took the Mrs and the kids to a restaurant because it was her b’day. She wore a nice dress, and one of my kids freaked out. “You will NOT wear a dress. Indian moms don’t wear a dress! Indian moms wear pants!”

    When I said, you are not an Indian, you are an American, he said, “I am NOT American. I am Indian!”

    I have no idea where he learnt that. We never told them anything of the sort. Must be his Chinese friend at school. Damn those slitty eyed yellow bastiges.

  223. Did you ask, Dot or Feather?

  224. Teach him about the caste system.

    “Here son, you’re Dalit. Have fun.”

  225. Tushar, you should dispel his confusion and tell him he is an American Indian.

  226. >>“Here son, you’re Dalit. Have fun.”

    Ha ha! That will teach him!

    Oso, he does not yet know about dot vs feather.
    I am waiting for them to mature a bit before I teach them un-PC things. I don’t want them blurting out something at school and getting into trouble.

  227. Tushar, you should dispel his confusion and tell him he is an American Indian.

    No, they were born here. They’re Native Americans.

  228. >>Tushar, you should dispel his confusion and tell him he is an American Indian.

    Right. That will need me to clear my own confusion first. I know that between Indian American and American Indian, one is dot and other is feather. But I am honestly not sure which is which.

    Just like my confusion between LGBT and BLT. All I know is that one is a tasty sandwich and the other is a grievance group I do not want to eat.

  229. Rats. I don’t have kids that I can teach non-PC behaviors to.

  230. Nothing wrong with your kids embracing their heritage.

    Buy a c-store.

  231. Use the Listerine test.

  232. Btw, the fajita I ate today had little juicy pieces of steak. They were good. Denny’s breakfast omelette has those too. How can I make them at home? Which cut do I buy? Can I make it indoors, or do I need a grill? Which spices?

  233. If they drink it, feather. If they gargle and spit, dot. ///rayciss ok because a feather told me

  234. Skirt steak. Marinade can have lots of stuff. We use coke. Lime juice. Pepper. Onions. Garlic salt. Kind of like a religion.

  235. Dave, in time I will teach them about their dual heritage. For now I want to be sure they don’t think they are different than other kids at school. Unfortunately other kids learn stuff at home and blabber at school. It seems all other nationalities are a source of pride, but God forbid you teach your kids to be proud Americans.

  236. jalepeno and cheddar cheese popcorn is pretty good, needs more jalepeno.

    Pretty sure it’s not paleo, and bad for me.

    ============
    That’s what nieces and nephews are for. ;)

  238. Paleo is a scam.

  239. Pepe, I was asked to watch my language in front of the kids. I was like WTF?

  240. Tush, you have twins. One can be the control and the other can be H2 raised. Science.

  241. Well, there’s the chilling thought of the day…

  242. Tushar,
    Don’t tell him Dot -vs-Feather, tell him Casino-vs-Tech Support…

  243. Hey Oso, you don’t want them to learn it on the streets. They need to learn to use colorful language correctly, with style. ;)

  244. Ha ha! I had never seen this clip of Apu taking citizenship test.

  245. Tush just basically linked the chapter in America that got the book banned at Costco.

    http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2013/06/grilled-skirt-steak-fajitas-food-lab-recipe.html

    All these recipes have some uncanny similarities.

    Scott loves texmex so this is going to be a mission for me, too, Tushar.

    I want to make homemade tortillas to go with them too.

    Gonna try these: http://www.homesicktexan.com/2007/03/and-end-to-my-quest-flour-tortillas.html

    Finally will have time this summer to do these things. Well, I have about a month and a half left. To do things.

  247. Thanks Laura.

  248. So far, India has given the conservatives following good people:
    Dinesh D’Souza
    Ramesh Ponnuru.
    Bobby Jindal
    Nicky Haley.

    Liberals got assholes like Kamala Harris, Neera Tandon, Akhil Amar and Preet Bharara.

    So far, conservatives got a far better deal.

  249. Sometimes you can also find packages of small bits of beef called ‘sirloin tips’ or ‘steak tips,’ Tush. These are usually pretty tender and easy to quickly toss and sear in a hot griddle for a juicy little morsel, but they priced at a premium compared to the ones you can grill and slice yourself.

  250. the CT woman did it better than I could have,, skirt steak marinated for 3 years or therebouts

  251. I have an electric griddle that can go up to 425F. I suppose I can use that instead of an outside grill. Or is that not hot enough?

  252. The Pioneer Woman is an escaped con I saw selling tweek on El Cajon Blvd in 1989, swearsees.

  253. Lauraw, wish I could help with the flour tortillas. I was a “Tonta” and “Chiple”. My Grammo used blue mtn lard and a little bacon grease for flavor. I don’t know the rest. I just know you work it until it feels “Right” I may have had a smart ass comment that earned me a punch upside the head.

  254. Tush, no cast iron?

  255. Did anybody tell anybody else that their clothing wasn’t age-appropriate today?

  256. Sean, I wanted to.

  257. Orale gramma, lose the tank and short shorts. And the blonde dye. The sharpies are like messed up.

  258. Tush. It takes some getting used to. I wish I had known about cooking with marinades before I started cooking steak.. For starters; I think you should get a couple sirloin steaks and put them in a freezer bag with about a cup of red wine and the juice of three limes and some garlic and salt and peper. leave it in the fridge for about two days and when your ready just cut those babes into one inch squares and cook them in some veg oil for about 12 min. The Acid in the marinade cooks the meat most of the way.

    Bon appatit.

  259. Electric griddle will work fine.

    Fajitas seem to me to be a mastery of caramelizing the outsides of a food object while leaving the centers still mostly fresh.

    If you want that wonderful smoky summer grill flavor you get from broiling on an outdoor grill, they sell perforated grill topper sheets for doing chopped veggies and small meats on your regular barbecue grill.

    But it is not necessary, as long as your griddle is hot enough to get a good char on food surfaces without overcooking them through the middle.

  260. Flour tortillas are really easy. Use shortening, and don’t forget the salt. A wine bottle makes a good rolling pin if you don’t have one, but a press is even easier.

  261. To be authentic it has to be junk meat that was only good for Messican vaqueros. Good beef defeats the purpose of culturally authentic!!!! LIGAF

  262. Tushar, my first thought was that one of his teachers was to blame.

  263. cast iron pan on a grill, gas or electric, will give you enough heat to char.

  264. Dude. Go to the market. Buy Guerreros. Heat on griddle.

  265. I am not sure I have mastered the charcoal grill, and I don’t want to experiment. I would rather go with what I have.
    I will get a cast iron griddle at some point. But before that, I have to know for sure I will use it enough.

  266. I don’t actually care about autentico. I like the Scottish folk just fine but I’m not about to eat a portion of gently stewed sheep’s lung stuffed into a sheep’s asshole.

  267. Go to local Chinese restaurant. Get Mongolian beef. Bring home. Wrap in warm tortilla.

  268. Tush, cast iron is your friend. I have 30 yr old cast iron that is better than non-stick anything.

  269. The magic of cast iron griddles is what they do when you cover them and shut off the heat for many minutes. They just keep on cookin’.

  270. So, Lauraw has my back with Jewstin and his lengua posts?

  271. Go to goodwill, or salvation army, and buy one for $10.

    Or $20 for a new one at Wal Mart. Just a pan.

  272. Heathen!!! Lodge made in the USA Cast Iron.

  273. Wal Mart = Lodge, silly oso

  274. Costco sells some lamb ribs that look delicious. Again, I have no idea how to cook them.
    I don’t know the difference between braising and broiling. I don’t know the difference between roasting and grilling. Do you use steak sauce as a marinade or a topping sauce?
    So many questions. So much confusion.

  275. Get a Lodge. the big one. I use it in the oven all the time. I make pizza in it. Roasted garlic. marinara. Chili.

    You’ll find ways to use it.

  276. Site to store!!! Someone help Tush.

  277. I don’t eat lamb. Clarice! ///

  278. kid ..

    thank you all for loving me, us.

  279. Oso, I am thinking of buying 250 pounds of bar and plate weights through site to store. The folks who move and stack stuff will be cursing me.

  280. We do it all the time!!!

  281. another good starter is the crock pot. You can put a 2 pound roast in with a can of coke and an onion and a garlic. Pepper salt. Four hours later pull it apart and pan fry on med high with some bell peppers and onions. you can experiment with sauces and what all safely knowing that your meat is cooked.

  282. Get some Lodge cast iron while you’re there :)

  283. That is sweet, Dave. Have a good one.

  284. You can kill a goat, preferably a kid, hang it from a tree, and then section it and cook it on a grill. Cabrito. Salt. Pepper. Garlic. Maybe a little roasted green chile. Some water cress or quelites.

  285. Pretty sure I’ve mentioned that I only eat meat from anglo markets.

  286. Braising = simmering gently in a pan, in a small amount of liquid. Oven or stovetop. Similar to stewing, but with less liquid. Good technique for softening up tough pieces of meat directly in very flavorful liquid or gravy.

    Broiling = cooking a piece of meat or veg under or over direct flame. Good for more tender pieces of meat, or meat where you want a charred surface and a rare interior when cross-cutting against the grain is all you need to make the meat tender enough.

    Roasting = dry cooking, or at least a more low-moisture cook; usually the meat is contained in a pan to collect the juices. Cooking happens on indirect or low heat over a relatively longer period of time than broiling or grilling. When vegetables are roasted, they are usually left dry.

    Roasting can be done in an oven, as when the Thanksgiving turkey is roasted in a pan for long hours and alternately covered and uncovered to control browning. Or roasting can be done to things such as potatoes, when they are buried in the coals left over from a campfire. It is generally a dry process, with a bit of steam for a helper.

    Most hot-smoking of bacons or briskets or pork shoulders or chickens are usually some kind of roasting process.

    Grilling = anything done on a grill. Usually in the northeast when people say they grilled something, they mean they broiled it. But all of the above can actually also be a grill activity.

  287. Not seeing the microwave or SNAP freezer food in Lauraws cooking demo.

  288. I have no clue what SNAP freezer is. Microwaves are for reheating my home cooked meals, or steaming my fresh garden produce. Or making tea.

  289. Or melting cheese on things. Microwaves are essential for this purpose.

    What about searing?

  293. SNAP is EBT. They shop the freezers and prepared foods. I was cashiering and I had a SNAP member tell me that they are having to pay attention to their shopping now. All meat, deli, produce. Can’t afford snacks.

  294. Hmm, looks like I need to venture into hitherto uncharted (by me) territories in the kingdom of carnist pleasure.

    Thanks for all the knowledge, and goodnight everyone.
    Long day ahead tomorrow.

  295. There’s something wrong with a couple of my definitions, yes. There are some regional issues. And there are things l left out, like searing, sauteeing, and sucking my hump.

  296. Lauraw, is it cooking if it is made in the micro? Or is it ‘Re-heating?

  297. Oso, it destroys my very heart that EBT customers are being so pressed by rising food prices that they have to invest themselves in shopping properly and actually cooking this free food for their families.

    Horrible. I hope they protest. I hope they protest this injustice quite visibly.

    Your failure to mention boiling offends my Irish ancestors.

  299. Whole foods are cooked in the microwave, if they had to be washed, peeled and seasoned first from their natural state. Or if they were confections or bakery goods that were mixed from scratch cupboard ingredients and prepared by hand, before being finally cooked in a microwave.

    Any crap that came already-made or ready-to-mix in a complete kit or container and just reheated, is just reheated poo poo.

  300. Mmmm…reheated poo poo!

  301. Lauraw, I have SNAP members that are threatening to take their business elsewhere over the high cost of food.

  302. You left out steaming, which is what I;m doing right now with a heat of cauliflower.

  303. Tushar already knows what ‘boiling’ is. I was addressing his comment directly, where he didn’t know some other stuff.

    I will be by to harvest your internal organs a bit later this evening. Hang tight. It will seem like an eternity at first, but then, so very quick.

  304. If it makes you all feel better, I will not use the microwave on your kidneys and livers. It makes them tough, and useless in a pie.

  305. Laura only boils bunnies.

  306. I saw reheatsed poo poo open for sucking my hump at the Pecos Rodeo a couple of weekends ago.

  307. Laura only boils bunnies.

    I thought that she smoked them.

  308. All my ethnic stereotypes have gone Caddywumpus!!! Who knew the Portugee was in to organ harvesting?

  309. I usually fry bunnies, but I’m so afraid of whatever wild bunnies might have, disease-wise, thinking of just long-stewing them or making soup, if we do catch any this year.

  310. A few years ago, you wouldn’t have wanted my liver or kidneys at all. Now, thanks to clean living…

    …oh, wait…

  311. Hmmm. *waggles eyebrows and sharpens things*

    Goodnight shmoopies. Beeg day tomorrow.
    Ciao.

  312. heh. Put my liver in a pie and see what happens.

  313. Sean, maybe you shouldn’t wear that onion on your belt.

  314. But it’s the style!

  315. *leans in to wave nighty night and sweet dreams to all the cool kids*

  316. *pouts because Cyn never waves nighty night to me*

  317. Got home about two hours ago after dropping Rebecca off at camp. Sent DD#3 off to a friend’s house for the week.
    Mr. and Mrs. TiFW have the house all to themselves for the next few days…..

  318. Running to me a-cryin’, when he throws you out.
    Running to me a-cryin’, on your own again.
    You’ve got that derp feel,
    Such good responses,
    But the picture has a mustache.
