In the Navy in 1950 my “buddies” told me to drink it or skip the coffee break.Naive, I believed them but needed four teaspoons of sugar to make it drinkable.Several months ago read of cold-brew in…Continue

Sunday morning with "Sunday Baroque" classical music on the radio. Beats church!
Joan, I like your last sentence. I've always thought that the phrase, "Have a nice day", was lacking something. It's like an order. In many respects, one has control over whether the day is nice or not--a state of mind. However, if a tree falls on your car, that's something else. When you add "I hope you" to "have a nice day", it makes more sense. That's what you did. Thank you. I hope the same for you and yours.

A nice hot cup of coffee, cozy in my recliner looking outside where it is 16 degrees F, deep, fresh snow covers trees all dressed in their finest, blue skies, incredibly bright sun, beans soaking in a pot getting ready for a ham bone for hot and spicy ham and bean soup, and Dominic snoring beside me happy to be toasty warm. When he goes out into the forest to do his duty he returns all covered in snow. Trained to open the door to come in, he escorts me to his towel for a rubdown from nose to tail and a drying of each foot. 

I hope your day is full of all things beautiful and delicious and happy!

January 2, 2016. There. I just had to see it in black and white.

Here's wishing all you coffee lovers (and friends) a super year.

Hot oatmeal with blueberries and hickory nuts this morning. Nuts give it a little crunch--and flavor.

I'm babysitting my two grandchildren, ages 3 and 6, this afternoon. It's for six hours, and I'm usually good for only three. I've kept most of my own kids' toys, so they'll have plenty to play with. Heck, I even saved some of my own playthings--65 years old! Tinker toys, old cars, Lincoln logs, etc.

Dang. I didn't see your comment, Loren. I do read your blogs and discussions, although I may not comment. 

I'm sure your columnist friend will say "I told you so", when we have a blast of cold temps come January!

Starting today, the daylight hours become longer, albeit, imperceptably. So, Happy Solstice, everyone.

Sipping on my Keurig "Donut Shop" coffee this AM and working on yet another blog entry, this one inspired by that great porcine philosopher, Atheist Pig!

Warm here, too.  The temp got up to 65°F yesterday and there's talk of 70° today ... yet that idiot-child right wing columnist for the Plain Dealer, Kevin O'Brien, wants to insist that anthropogenic climate change is a hoax!  Merde, alors!

There's hardly a Sunday that goes by that I don't wake up thinking "I don't have to go to church!". It hit me again this morning. How many hours have I lost in attending church and Sunday school? Too many. Listening to "Sunday Baroque" on the radio s my substitute nowadays. I can enjoy the music, even if it is often "religious".

As a matter of fact, it's warm enough to go golfing today--and I am! We have another week of above average temps. Notice, I say "average", not "normal". I cringe when weathermen (and women) use "normal". They don't mean it, but weather is anything but "normal". We like to base our reports on comparisons to averages.

Comment by Plinius on December 10, 2015 at 7:41am

That ís warm, Randall! Here it's a bit cooler, but also above average. Perhaps next week some nightfrost.

Beautful sunrise this morning here in Indiana. And it's almost warm enough to take my cup of coffee out on the porch. It's supposed to reach the mid 60's this weekend--unheard of! El nino? Have a good day.
