  1. I assumed that you were talking about the Go Ask Alice site run by Columbia University.
  2. Or just the common usage here, SDJ. Kind of odd, except at the Chalice I rarely use that title at church. What with the priests and deacons, and occasionally a bishop or two around it seems kind of pretentious there.
  3. Every time I see that I think back to the early 1990s. On our way to an SCA event near Lake San Antonio. Had to pass through Fort Hunter Liggett to get there and had stopped at Mission San Antonio de Padua (one of the best preserved missions in California). Left there and about two miles later punched in the clutch and stood on the brakes just after going around a 90 degree corner. Hanging over the road, maybe 50 feet off the ground was a Cobra, nose down like it was waiting for someone. Looked around to see what the heck was going on and about 100 yards to our left, in among some trees, were some tents, camo netting, and a bunch of guys in uniform laughing their butts off.
  4. BLENNA (RAISED GERMAN PANCAKES) ABOUT THIS RECIPE "This is in response to a request on the boards. This is from a German Russian cookbook put out by the American Historical Society of German Russians. German Russians were Germans who moved to Russia and then to the US." INGREDIENTS 1 cup milk 3/4 teaspoon salt 1/4 cup water 1 egg 2 tablespoons sugar 1/4 cup shortening 1 package dry yeast 1 cup flour DIRECTIONS Scald milk. Stir in sugar, salt and shortening then cool to lukewarm. Heat water to 115-120 degrees farenheit. DIRECTIONS Place water in bowl of mixer, then sprinkle the yeast and stir until dissolved. Add milk to yeast mixture. Add flour and beat until smooth. Cover and let rise until double in bulk (this should take about 40 minutes). Stir mixture till "punched down". Bake on medium heat as you would any pancake.
  5. Apple Raisin Scones Ingredients 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1/4 cup sugar 1 tablespoon baking powder 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1/3 cup butter or margarine (chilled) 1 cup Quaker® Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked) 2/3 cup dried apples, finely minced 1/2 cup raisins 1/3 cup water 2 egg whites, beaten Cooking Instructions Heat oven to 400° F. Lightly spray a cookie sheet with vegetable oil spray or possibly oil lightly. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and cinnamon; cut in chilled butter or margarine until mix resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in oats, apples and raisins. Add in combined water and egg whites, mixing just till moistened. Shape dough to create a ball. Turn out onto lightly floured surface; knead gently 6 times. Pat into 9 inch circle on prepared cookie sheet. Score dough into 8 wedges; don't separate. Bake 18 to 20 min or possibly till light golden. Break apart; serve warm with jelly, jam or fruit preserves
  6. He was recommended to them by Betty White.
  7. I first saw it around '02 or '03. I've used it here maybe a couple of dozen times. Usually "Click on the picture to embiggen it." or "I had to wait until I could get to my desktop so I could embiggen it." A very useful word.
  8. From the Hochdeutsch via Late Norman French meaning To Embiggen.
  9. OJust a partial payment for all the help your firefighters have given us over the years . From 2017 Tubbs Fire.
  10. A low carb version. Vegemite could be added to the butter.
  11. https://mujerok.online/desayuno-rapido/?fbclid=IwAR0pfTMKJeNsKRO7u7Omgc9KlXFSNH626HzEwye4VnruzKzt1USBWzdBmj4
  12. There are many people who can't rattle off the BoR, or even give a gloss of all 10 amendments. I almost always put the 8th ahead of the 7th.
  13. My wife and I had races. She broke 3 minutes a few times. My best was something like 3 min. 15 seconds. We would ask for "A table for two. " First time I got her to the blood bank I told the rech, "Be gentle...she's never felt a prick before. " Everyone broke up as she turned bright red.
  14. The in wall oven and broiler we have says to keep the door closed when broiling. Says it a couple of times. I do it, but it seems strange.
  15. Kellye Nakahara, who played Nurse Kellye Yamato on the TV series "M*A*S*H," has died. Thank you, Ms. Nakahara. Yes, you were "cute as hell."
  16. https://www.npr.org/2020/02/17/806663375/virginia-governors-bill-to-ban-assault-weapons-fails-with-help-from-his-own-part https://www.foxnews.com/politics/virginia-assault-weapons-ban-fails-in-legislature Don't count it as a win. It will be back, likely as an amendment to an unrelated bill.
  17. It seems to me that to get that screwed up it would have to go from one language to another, with the minor errors almost any translation brings. Then from that language to another, adding more errors. Kind of like the game "Telephone." By the time it has gone through 4 or 5 "translations" it isn't anything like the original. Now, it could be that the translation from the original to English really is that messed up, I don't know.
