  1. A FB find from a few years ago:
  2. If I throw you out of my house because you say something or use language I don't like I'm not violating your 1st Amendment civil rights, likewise a business isn't violating your 2nd Amendment civil rights by banning carry within its walls.
  3. It's not really surprising. Most of the area in the photo in the OP had already been built up as residential, so that wouldn't change much. Golden Gate Park wasn't going to change, and the Presidio and its surrounding land wasn't going to change. It filled in to the south, and the Bridge Across the Golden Gate was added.
  4. That hand loop on the forend looks like it would do a job on your hand with a heavy load. Have never shot one period. And have never thought about the external ballistics of the shot column. What is it? It spread 1" for every yard of travel from the muzzle? So that 3/4 inch diameter mass of shot, at normal house ranges will be maybe 5" or 6" diameter at the target.
  5. Garbage, and you know it. Or you should. In spite of the official push to ban all firearms California is actually pretty good about allowing home self defense. Maybe certain DAs would give you grief, but in general CA allows it. A couple of years back a guy in Kelseyville even followed some home invaders outside a killed one of them outside and wasn't prosecuted as he had a reasonable belief that the thug would return and harm him.
  6. As close as I could find quickly:
  7. "It’s not yet clear if Democratic Sen. Laphonza Butler, a former labor leader whom Gov. Gavin Newsom appointed to fill the remainder of Feinstein’s term, will join next year’s primary for a full six-year term." Ms. Checkmark has said that she won't run. At least she knows she isn't fit for the job. Which doesn't mean she won't run.
  8. I'm not going to try to imitate a red light district!
  9. Ginger-Lemon Oatmeal Cookies 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened 1/2 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup granulated sugar 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 egg 1 cup all-purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 cup old-fashioned oats 1/2 cup chopped pecans Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Cream the butter with the sugars in a medium bowl with a hand mixer until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the ginger, zest, vanilla and egg, and mix well. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt, and then add to the butter mixture and mix. Add the oats and mix until combined. Fold in the pecans with a wooden spoon. Spoon the dough onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper and bake until golden, about 10 minutes. Let cool 2 minutes, and then remove from the baking sheets.
  10. Oatmeal Raisin Walnut Cookies Ingredients 1 cup softened butter 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar 1/2 cup sugar 2 eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon saigon cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon salt 3 cups old-fashioned oatmeal 1 cup raisins 3/4 cup chopped walnuts Directions 1. Preheat oven to 350 degree Fahrenheit. 2. In small bowl mix flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. 3. Cream butter and sugars in electric mixer. 4. Add eggs and vanilla beating well. 5. Add flour mix, mixing well. 6. Add oats, raisins, and nuts, mixing well. 7. Drop tablespoon size dough on lightly greased baking sheet. 8. Bake 10-12 minutes. 9. Cookies will be slightly browned around the edges. They will continue baking after removing from oven. Cool one minute in pan then transfer to cooling rack. I’ll usually increase the cinnamon, and add in other warm spices – allspice, cloves, nutmeg, mace, ginger. Add more and different chopped nuts and dried fruit. Molasses Sugar Cookies 1 ½ cups shortening 2/3 cup molasses 2 cups sugar 2 eggs ½ to 1 tsp. ground cloves 2 tsp ground cinnamon 1 tsp vanilla extract 1 tsp kosher salt 1 TBS + 1 tsp baking soda 4 cups flour Extra sugar for rolling Melt shortening over low heat, let cool. Add molasses, sugar, and eggs. Beat well. Mix in cloves, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda. Mix in the flour. Chill for 60 to 90 min. Roll dough into 1” balls. Roll in sugar. Bake @ 350 for 8 – 10 min.
  11. This one seems odd at first, but if you think of the avocado as a replacement for butter it makes sense. Again, I'll add more cinnamon, and add cloves, freshly grated nutmeg, allspice, powdered ginger, maybe some mace. And I'll change up the dried fruit, or use combinations of dried fruits. Avocado Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies Ingredients: 3 cup old-fashioned oats 1 1/2 cup white whole wheat flour 4 tsp. baking powder 1 tsp. baking soda 1 tsp. ground cinnamon 1 tsp. salt 1 ripe, fresh avocado, halved, pitted, peeled and mashed 1/2 cup brown sugar 1/3 cup olive oil 1 cup plain, low-fat yogurt 2 large eggs 2 cup dates, pitted, chopped (about 12 oz.) Instructions: Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Line 4 baking sheets with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Combine the oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a medium bowl. Cream together oil, avocado and brown sugar in a large bowl, then stir in yogurt and eggs. Add oat mixture to avocado mixture and stir until combine, then stir in dates. Using a 1/4 cup measure, transfer the mixture onto lined baking sheets, spacing the cookies 2- inches apart. Bake for 18 to 22 minutes, until golden. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
  12. Amish Sugar Cookies Servings 48 cookies Ingredients 1 cup butter softened 1 cup vegetable or canola oil 1 cup granulated sugar 1 cup powdered sugar 2 large eggs 2 tsp. vanilla 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1 tsp. baking soda 1 tsp. cream of tartar Instructions In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter, oil, and sugars until combined. Beat in eggs and vanilla. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar. Gradually add flour mixture to the butter mixture, beating until just combined after each addition. Do not overmix. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Drop dough by small teaspoonfuls onto baking sheets. Bake at 375 for 8-11 minutes, or until edges and bottoms are lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool.
  13. Quick and easy. I tend to add more spices and more raisins. Maybe some chopped nuts, too. Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies 1 (18.25 ounce) package spice cake mix 1 cup quick cooking oats 2 eggs 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1/2 cup raisins Directions Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease baking sheets. Combine cake mix, oats, eggs, and oil in large bowl. Beat at low speed with electric mixer until blended. Stir in raisins. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto baking sheets. Bake for 7-9 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool 1 minute on baking sheet.
  14. Most worthy effendi, as you ask, so shall it be given to you! Seek for them in the Viands and Victuals pinned thread.
  15. Aerial view of San Francisco without the Golden Gate Bridge probably taken in the 1920s. Also of note are the sand dunes that are south of Golden Gate Park. Angel Island in the distance. www.sfcityguides.org
  16. " Scientists have reconstructed the face of the great Saint Nicholas from his relics. On the basis of archaeological, anatomical and anthropological research, Russian researchers have depicted the real image of St. Nicholas: his waist, his complexion and even his facial features. They also defined the diseases from which St Nicholas suffered. Anthropological study of the relics shows that the great Saint Hierarch did not eat meat, but only vegetable foods. The height of the saint was 1.67 m. Russian researchers used modern computer technology to recreate the face of St Nicholas (photo). To carry out this study, it was necessary to open the tomb of St Nicholas in Bari. The expert evaluation was carried out by Professor Luigi Martino. The saint's face was reconstructed from the skull. The professor also drew several conclusions about the diseases from which St. Nicholas suffered: St. Nicholas' joints are damaged. The spinal column and chest bones show the torture St. Nicholas suffered in prison. Radiological examination of the skull showed a slight internal cranial change, with Professor Martino believing that this may have been caused by several years of cold and dampness spent in prison (the saint spent almost two years in prison), the Orthodox News Agency also reports. Professor Luigi Martino concluded, based on his study of the holy relics of St. Nicholas, that the representations in the icons fully correspond to the outward appearance of the person buried in this tomb, "According to the construction of the skull and skeleton, St. Nicholas belonged to the Caucasian Mediterranean type, with a medium stature and a dark complexion. He had a high forehead, an aquiline nose, prominent cheekbones and chin, a medium hard bone". In the photo you also have the icon with the face of St. Nicholas in our church. What a beautiful face, what a face of gentleness and patience."
  17. My wife started crocheting again a few weeks ago. I bought a little twin lamp work light that she can wear on her neck so she can better see her work. I tried it.
  18. What's wrong with that? It's a Davis, likely not going to fire no matter what.
  19. From US Army Cyber Center of Excellence FB page: Dear Navy, Message received. GAME ON! #GoArmy #BeatNavy #VictoryStartsHere #BeAllYouCanBe Navy Information Operations Command Georgia / Fort Eisenhower / U.S. Navy / U.S. Army /
  20. What I don't understand about these programs is how the government entity can get away with destroying evidence. They're "no questions asked," just turn it in and get your reward.Gangbanger turns in pistol he used in a robbery, or maybe a murder, walks away. Government entity does all their back-patting publicity photos and press releases, then destroy all the firearms. Now there is no firearm to tie the thug to the crime.
