From my Recipe Box: Polish Apple Pancakes

  This simple recipe (flour, eggs, milk, and apples) is delicious with sausage on the side, or a bit of cheddar cheese over the top of the pancake for those who prefer more protein for breakfast.

Living with abuse

My father had a fixation of sorts with a t-shirt he had that said ‘World’s Greatest Grandpa.’ I don’t remember who got it for him, but I know that he got his ‘world’s greatest Grandpa’ coffee cup because he made it quite clear that it hurt his feelings that Granny Tea had at least half […]

St. Catherine

This picture is taken from a book called Old English Churches: Their Architecture, Furniture, Decoration, Monuments … By George Clinch, published in 1900. It tickles my fancy, even though the story behind it is not funny at all:   I love her expression, don’t you?  I can just hear her saying, “Stop writhing, Sire, I’m […]

The Dugger Scandal

I agree with those who note that there is a double standard in the media, and there are plenty of other child molesters the media knows and loves and covers for. I’m pretty sure if Josh came out of the closet as gay and it turned out his victims were little boys, many of those […]

Reading here, reading there, reading bits of everywhere

I know this is a shock, but CNN lied a whole bunch in their Feb, um, ‘report’ about white terror groups.  Must reading.   Meditation study finds that meditation and mindfulness are not the panacea we’ve been told. On study conducted in prison found that prisoners were “just as aggressive before the mindfulness techniques,” but […]

Country Music Mashup

This is totally hilarious: IT’s by Sir Mashalot. He’s got a facebook page and he’s planning a release of a 25 song pop mash up soon. Songs in the same genre will sound similar because there are certain traits that fit a song in one genre rather than another. What impresses me is not the […]
