  1. Re: Chicago Garden Dogs. 


    "Pile on the toppings in this order: yellow mustard, sweet green pickle relish, onion, tomato wedges, pickle spear, sport peppers, and celery salt. The tomatoes should be nestled between the hot dog and the top of the bun. Place the pickle between the hot dog and the bottom of the bun"


    By the time you load all that on you don't need the dog.  Might not even notice if it was missing.

    Hmm.  Next time that question comes up I think I'm going to say "Ginger can join if Mary Ann don't mind"




    No, what's most important is the meat.  Pork/beef/turkey (or chicken) is best.  Pork/Beef is OK, but the all beef dogs are downright criminal.  I'm glad our jewish friends have hot dogs they can eat, but stupid people out there think just because they cost more they must be 'the good ones'. 


    And to answer the OP.  NO.




    I'm with you on that.  The buck a pack Bar-S eat just as well as the seven buck a pack dogs. Paying steak prices for hot dogs doesn't make much sense to me. But if that's what floats your boat,  go for it.

    If you like ketchup on your hot dogs, put ketchup on your hot dogs.  If you don't, don't.   Same for mustard.  Same for ANY other topping.   

    For the record, I don't put anything on my hotdogs.   


    Now, much more important is how are your hot dog buns split?  The only proper way to split a hot dog bun is on the top.  Side opening buns are wrong.


    This is an example of a top split hot dog bun, which is proper.



    This is a picture of a side split hot dog bun, which is wrong.



    Nothing more needs to be said.



    Universal hot dog/hamburger bun.

  5. If you like it, use it. If you don't like it, don't.  Pretty simple.  Heck, if you like peanut butter on your hot dog, go for it and more power to you.


    I like chili-cheese dogs with sauerkraut.  Or just mustard. Or catsup and mustard.  Or whole grain mustard and 'kraut.  Don't care for raw onions (except maybe a few on a chili dog).  Nor do I care for the Chicago-style loaded dog.  

    If you want catsup on your steak, well, how is that really all that much different than BBQ sauce?

    What others like to eat isn't any of my business and (usually) won't take away my enjoyment of a meal.

  6. Got my 1st,  Pfizer,  on March 30, about 15:00.  Felt fine.  Took my evening meds about 1900, an hour later was vomiting. 


    Got up the next day,  took my medications,  an hour later started feeling cruddy,  went to work,  left after 2 hours.   Started feeling better by late afternoon.   Took my evening medications,  you guessed it. 


    When I go in for my 2nd shot I'm not going to take my medications that day or the day after.

  7. Some true, some not quite true.

    1.  There is no problem so complex that it cannot simply be blamed on the pilot. ~ Dr Earl Weiner

    3.  Safety second is my motto. ~ Locklear
    4. Speed is life, altitude is life insurance.
    5.  The man who flies an airplane … must believe in the unseen. ~ Richard Bach
    6. There is no excuse for an airplane unless it will fly fast! ~ Roscoe Turner
    7.  The ships hung in the sky in much the same way that bricks don’t. ~ Douglas Adams
    8.  Aviation is proof, that given the will, we have the capacity to achieve the impossible. ~ Rickenbacker
    9.  Flying is like sex —I’ve never had all I wanted but occasionally I’ve had all I could stand. ~ Stephen Coonts
    10.  The desire for safety stands against every great and noble enterprise. ~ Cornelius Tactitus  (circa AD 56)
    11.  Aviation in itself is not inherently dangerous. But to an even greater degree than the sea, it  is terribly unforgiving of any carelessness, incapacity or neglect.
    12. Lady, you want me to answer you if this old airplane is safe to fly?  Just how in the world do  you think it got to be this old?  ~ Jim Tavenner
    13. If you are looking for perfect safety, you will do well to sit on a fence and watch the birds;  but if you really wish to learn, you must mount a machine and become acquainted with its tricks by actual trial.  ~ Wilbur Wright, 1901.

    22.. The aeroplane will never fly.  ~ Lord haldane, Minister of War, Britain, 1907

  8. O God of spirits and of all flesh, Who hast trampled down death and overthrown the Devil, and given life to Thy world, do Thou, the same Lord, give rest to the soul of Thy departed servant in a place of brightness, a place of refreshment, a place of repose, where all sickness, sighing, and sorrow have fled away. Pardon every transgression which he has committed, whether by word or deed or thought. For Thou art a good God and lovest mankind; because there is no man who lives yet does not sin, for Thou only art without sin, Thy righteousness is to all eternity, and Thy word is truth.

    For Thou are the Resurrection, the Life, and the Repose of Thy servants who have fallen asleep, O Christ our God, and unto Thee we ascribe glory, together with Thy Father, who is from everlasting, and Thine all-holy, good, and life-creating Spirit, now and ever unto ages of ages. Amen

    May He Who arose from the dead, Christ our true God, through the prayers of His all-pure Mother; of the holy, glorious and all laudable Apostles; of our holy and God-bearing Fathers; and of all the saints; establish the soul of His servant who has  been taken from us, in the mansion of the righteous; give him rest in Abraham’s bosom, and number him among the just; and have mercy on us, forasmuch as He is good and loves mankind.


    Grant rest eternal in blessed repose, O Lord, to Thy servant who has fallen asleep, and make his memory to be eternal!




    But how wonderful to repose in the Lord on the Day of Resurrection!

    Can you hunt Easter eggs on Orthodox Easter which is May 2 this year?


    Kind of boring since the priest hands them out when people come to venerate the Cross after the Paschal Liturgy. That's at about 2:30 in the morning.   :D


    Our parish has a potluck cook out after Paschal Vespers Sunday afternoon and there are games for the kids as well as a standard American Easter egg hunt.
