  1. We also in them days had lots of different casseroles. Multiple variations on Spanish Rice, one from a popular cookbook called "Western Meal in One".  My favorite was one based on rice and sausage.

     

    Baked eggs (called sheared eggs by some).

     

    Beef was always the inexpensive cuts; lot of chuck steak and roast. Pounded round for Swiss steak.

     

    Everybody was on a budget back then; even people doing well didn't have the kind of money they do today.

  2. Canned or 'rote' prayers are especially good because they cover all the bases. The stuff you'd leave out if every day was extemporanious.

     

    I use them all the time and add a few new petitions as needed.

     

    Prayers before meals should have a regular form. We always say grace. As the head of a large progeny it usually falls to me. I have two or three that I will vary from time to time but they are 'canned'.

     

    The Lord's Prayer is the ultimate rote prayer. "When you pray, say this......"

    I guess I'm a little(?) weird because I love beets, boiled and skinned with salt and butter; pickled with sugar and cloves; asparagus; fresh, steamed yellow or green beans. I could make a meal of them alone.

     

    Nothing weird about it. I eat beets once a year in homemade Borscht at Easter. Asparagus I regard as the king of vegetables. Overcooking ruins them; just right they are the tops.

     

    Green beans are good. Fresh garden-grown are superb.

    i tend to what my father raised me on - jim beam , not overly expensive but greatly satisfying , i do appreciate an expensive taste from time to time as long as it is truely exceptional - not just expensive 

     

    Though my dad's bourbon was Old Grandad, I too buy mostly Jim Beam. Good quality with reasonable price. Always know what you're getting.

  5. Like others, we had a lot of organ meats when I was a kid. Tongue sandwiches; I remember them well but haven't seen one for over 55 years.

     

    Liver and onions, if the liver not cooked to death. Always liked it. You used to see it on cafe menus all the time, but I haven't around here for a long time.

     

    Stuffed beef heart my mom made a lot. I'd eat it again if I was ever presented with it. Haven't seen or hear of it for generations.

    They say what somebody else tells them to say.

    They stand where somebody else tells them to, they walk where and when somebody else tells them to. 

    They wear clothes that somebody else tells them to wear.

     I had more than a couple of jobs that would fit that!

  7. I'm glad I'm not a hypocrite like those d@mn actors!

     

    I suppose you could call all actors hypocrites if you confuse their actual persons with the characters they play. So if an actor does very well at certain roles, you can't like his movies because you find his personal views bad. And vice versa.

     

    This has always seemed a little strange to me.

  8. He was a great man. A uniter, not a divider. A sense of humor and humility. A smiler and a laugher, not a glowering scowler. Wish we had someone who was even a quarter of that man.

    How about that whiney kid in "Shane"?

     

    I remember here years ago a lot of discussion about that kid. The problem is that the book (which is very good) is told from the point of view of the kid. So you had to have a kid, at least....

  10. How many French civilians, innocents under German conquest, died in the Normandy bombardments and the Normandy campaign? You could look it up.

     

    Not to mention other civilian casualties of the war our fathers and uncles fought, over Germany and over Japan.

     

    Fewer than Grant brought about, I little doubt.
