Mike, I like the good news about your youngest daughter.

Comment by Idaho Spud on November 28, 2014 at 10:50am

I do like cranberry/pomegranate juice.

Comment by Idaho Spud on November 28, 2014 at 10:48am

Felaine, I may try some cranberries with orange juice and cinnamon.  It sounds like it may taste better.

Comment by Idaho Spud on November 28, 2014 at 10:44am

Felaine, I get very angry at thieves, even though It's not good for me.  That's why I spend some time and some of my limited income on fences, good locks, alarms, and security cameras.

I resent having to go to that much trouble, but I think the small amount of resentment is not as bad for me as anger.

Randall, put up a sign with a low price on it - that might work better than "FREE".

Comment by Randall Smith on November 28, 2014 at 7:44am

Felaine, hope you get over your anger. I can't blame you. Oddly, I can't even give away my garden veggies and yard fruits. I put out a roadside stand with "FREE" signs, but nobody stops.

Joan and Daniel, glad your meals were successful and evidently, delicious!

My father's retirement community's Thanksgiving dinner was exactly what I expected: white, dry turkey meat, mashed potatoes and stuffing with no gravy, yucky green beans, and hot noodles (good!). The salad and pecan pie was very good. Overall, I'd give the meal a "C". Missed sweet potatoes and cranberries. No prayer!  Just a nice quiet, peaceful dinner with my semi-deaf father and one of my twin sisters.

Felaine, I'm sorry you lost some of your avocados to thieves. Hope you find them and give them a bill. Sadly, not likely to happen. Your cranberry sauce sounds just delicious. That will spark up your spirits with the zingy tastes. 

Daniel, your dinner sounds delicious! Did Ning roast a turkey? 

Michael, Sounds like a nice, private time with your daughter. Perhaps she will join you in celebrating the freedom that comes with non-belief in super-human beings. It helps to not participate in the commercialism of religious holidays. 

Chris, "One Misty, Moisty Morning" is an old nursery rhyme that I sang to my kids when they were little and the weather was foggy. This version has many more parts than the one I sang. Whenever there is fog, I think of those days. 

Our dinner was a smashing success. Everyone pitched in to help. Larry is a fine cook ... he likes to do the turkey and pies. I was his assistant. There is so much laughter and good humor at these gatherings. They are all agnostic or atheists, so we have no conflicts.

Our preparations for the Yule begins. The Yule Log has been picked out and will burn on Dec 21 to celebrate the return of daylight.

Thanks for the video, Joan, never heard it before - it's nice!

Well I made some cramberry sawce.  Didn't have any OJ concentrate, but I did have an orange, so I got ouut my miracle microplane (my favorite gadget!) and scraped off the thinnest outside layer of the peel, and squoze the juice into a measuring cup.  Added enough water to make 1 cup, put in 2 tsp ground cinnamon, 1/2 cup sugar (running short of sucralose), and 2 cups of frozen berries....and cooked it all down.  I have enough to last a few months....  IF I don't get a turkey on sale in the next month or so.

BERRY good!  I love cranberry anything...juice, jam, and I have a recipe for cranberry ice (The Frugal Gourmet Cooks American...I loved Jeff Smith, and still miss him.), if someone will just let me borrow a Donvier....   Perfect for a hot summer day, with chicken!

Local temp was 87 F today; WTF month IS this?

I still want to slap the avocado thieves, but I don't know exactly which house they live in...just know it's up the hill....

My T-day was at my younger daughter's place and she had about 30 people. Lots of good food. My ex is there and also my older daughter. Not seeing the younger daughter in some time, we finally went off in her bedroom to talk and get caught up on things. She tells me she still believes in god, but not the way the churches teach you. I took that opportunity to tell her I no longer believe, period. It's all a myth.

The end result was that I had good food with lots of good people, and also planted a seed for "atheist preaching." Older people tend to cling to god. I haven't got time for such nonsense.
