    Vegemite has not been mentioned once, ......... most disappointing  :(

    Come on, Wallaby, you can tell us the truth.


    Aussies really don't like Vegemite.


    What happened is, they was told that it was associated with brewing beer- and all they heard was the 'beer' part. 


    Since Aussies do like beer, they started eating the stuff and can't stop now because none of you wants to be the first to admit that it's nasty tasting.

    One time early in our relationship I asked Lisa to make some cornmeal pancakes.   She told me that they were done and I was all eager.  

    I looked at the platter.  "What are these?" I asked, looking at a plate full of what looked like ordinary pancakes.   She had made regular pancakes with a can of corn and a can of creamed corn added.

    I was raised referring to them as hoe cakes.

    Here's the recipe that my sister sent me some time back. It is her best approximation of what our mom made. It's pretty much the same as I've had in a number of homes in Eastern Kentucky and made by people from Appalachia.



    I sprinkle just a bit of cornmeal in the skillet before pouring the mixed ingredients into the skillet.

    I like it as a side with chili among other things, but will butter it as well. 

    I put the oil in first thing put the skillet on the stove over low heat while I mix the ingredients.  Cornbread turns out better when cooked in a hot pan.

  4. I just want them to finish running fiber in the area around the house so I can upgrade my internet service.


    All of their deals and packages are useless to me if they don't have the equipment to make it fully work in place.


    I know a lineman that works for them and he keeps me informed on their progress with the change over.

    Hey Bottles, Smuteye needs a lot of whiskey. He obviously NEEDS a lot of whiskey…he has weird ideas when he’s sober. :lol:

    There weren't enough tarantula heads in Bottles' last batch of 'recipe'.


    Either that or the plug of tobacco he throws in for color was bad.

    surprised no one brought up the facts that in those days (with shortages of guns and ammo) people didn’t even know if AR15s would remain available (especially if you listened to the left’s cries for a new assault weapon ban).

    Possibly they wanted to get away from the AR stigma not draw more attention to it.

    The Left isn't harping on Rittenhouse using an AR because it clearly was used in self defense and shows a legitimate reason to own one ("Why does anyone need a high capacity magazine?", remember?).


    It's sort of like the NRA certified instructor down in Texas that used an AR to kill the guy that shot up the church.  You remember, the one that had a domestic abuse charge against him while he was in the Air Force- but the Air Force didn't report it to civilian authorities, so he was allowed to still buy firearms.  Nobody mentions that the guy that ultimately killed the shooter was a trained firearms instructor, NRA certified (because the NRA is eee-vil and their Second Amendment boogie man) or that an AR15 was used for good (because they have spent the last 35 years telling anyone within the sound of their voice that AR15's are instruments of mass destruction that are too powerful to be in the hands of mere mortals- or mere common peasants).

  7. I was at the grocery store about 3 AM one night (I was the closing manager at a restaurant) and had a drunk on a beer run try to crawl into the passenger seat with me when he mistook my car for his ride.  (In his defense, it was a dark parking lot, the cars were similar makes and both the same color AND were parked in the same place in the aisle but one lane apart).


    Fortunately for him, I keep my doors locked.


    I was about to start the car when I heard the, 'Thump, Thump!' caused by his trying to open the locked door.  When I looked over, all I saw was a man's torso, so I grabbed the Colt Combat Commander that was stuffed betwixt the seat and the center console.


    When he bent down to tell his buddy to open the door, he was nose to nose with my Colt at the distance of a whole 18 inches- just as I snicker the safety off.


    I dropped the passenger window an inch or so and told him that I do believe that he had the wrong car.  He- politely- agreed that he was obviously mistaken and- politely- asked if it would be alright with me if he left now.


    For the record, he might have been a mite tipsy when he bent over to look into the car, but he looked to be as sober as a teetotaler when he straightened up.

    I used to tell my wife that if you see a wood chipper in the driveway you better be nervous.  One time she countered me with “you know that they’ll know you rented a wood chipper and they can also trace your DNA”.  That’s when I scared her and told her “ I’m just going to steal the wood chipper, chip it into a bayou, and leave it”. She realized that I thought it through. 

    Catfish pond with a dock followed by a fire due to a 'fuel leak' works, too.:rolleyes:

    Note that Loophole and I are in neighboring states and have wildly different attitudes though folks from Mass move up here because of freedoms and try to convert things.

    Southerners go through the same thing.


    Yankees and Left Coasters move down South to get away from the craziness where they are from- and immediately want to remake where they are now into where they just left.


    If where you left was so great, then why did you leave?  If you liked it so much, why not move back and quit trying to ruin my life, too.

    Frontier life had very few formalities. Likely her husband accepted responsibility for the boys actions and took on the mantle of 'teaching him what he needs to know' to be a man in the community.  

    She stayed his sister and he was raised by his uncle. What's wierd about that?

    Actually, he'd be his brother in law, not his uncle.

    Best burritos I ever had came from a place in Oxnard CA called the El Rio Drive Inn. They were bigger than a can of Fosters beer and very inexpensive.


    Funny part was there wasn't a single Hispanic person working there. All the employees were Asian.


    $ block from my house is a Taqueria. Excellent Street Tacos. Just don't try to eat there between 1130 and 1300 or 1700 to 1830. Place is so busy you can't get near it.

    A good burrito should be about the size of your forearm and come with a knife and fork- so you can open it up and eat it down until you can fold it back up to finish it without it going everywhere.

    I noticed, when I would visit Puerto Rico, that just about everything came with french fries. Chinese food came with french fries.

    Ate at a Mexican place near Camp Lejeune one time (and only one time). 


    Everything came with steamed veggies instead of refried beans and rice.

    I pretty much won't enter shops that have non English writing on the windows etc 





    I prefer Mexican restaurants or taquerias where the menu is in Spanish and where I'm usually the only Anglo in the place.


    That's where you find the best, most authentic food.


    If you go by during lunch time or just after 5 pm and there's a couple of trucks from some landscaping or concrete lying business out front, then you know it's good.  The Latinos on them crews know what the food should taste like and ain't gonna waste their money on something that don't remind them of home.

  14. I don't care if the sign is written on purple construction paper in orange crayon or whether it's got the force of law behind it or not.


    The property owner or renter has made their wishes clear.  I'm not hypocritical enough to intentionally violate their right to control their property while claiming to do so as an expression of my own.


    I don't make a scene or hand out little cards.  I just leave- and never come back. 


    If asked why I walked in and immediately walked out, I point at the sign, wish them luck and tell them that they won't have to worry about me coming there ever again.


    Did it to a gas station out in the country outside Opelika a years ago.  I saw the little sign in the window as I walked in and turned to leave. The owner saw me turn to go right back out and asked why, so I pointed at the sign and told him.  I drive by the place 3 or 4 times a week and ain't stopped there since.

    Another round that will be as popular as the 9mm Federal and the .327 Federal.  Does anyone even remember the 9mm Federal?  It was a 9mm with a rim for revolvers.  Those sold like hotcakes.




    It was also intended for the international market for sale in countries where you can't own a gun chambered in a cartridge used by the military or police.  It's not a 9x19mm- because 9x19 doesn't have a rim.  Never mind that it's ballistically identical and the only difference is the rim.


    It was definitely a swing and a miss but the concept seemed to be sound.


    .327 is what the .32 Mag ought to have been- and the failure of the .32Mag tainted the .327 in the minds of many.

  16. Just proves nothing is new these days.


    Aren't the numbers on the .30SC roughly the same as the .32WCF?


    The last 'latest and greatest' bottom feeder round (the .40S&W) was a duplicate of the .38WCF.  Compare the period  .38WCF velocities to the original .40 load.  They are close enough that even the coroner won't notice the difference.


    I figger the .30SC will work as advertised.  History shows the effectiveness of that diameter and weight bullet traveling at that velocity going all the way back to the 1880's.  The JHP's that are going to be used are coming from Federal, Remington and Speer, so it's not like their designs don't have a proven track record.


    On the other hand, I also figger it's going to be snappy (have you noticed the operating pressure?) and pretty loud.  Not quite .30Carbine pistol loud but disconcertingly loud if you ain't ready for it.

  17. I'm confused. 


    (Yeah, I know.  That's usually Alpo's thing but I thought I'd try it out.)


    The Mayor of Chiraq acts spitefully and vengefully by using/abusing the powers of her(?) office after confronting a business owner- in his place of business while it was open- that had the audacity to go to the news with something that embarrassed her(?).


    What's supposed to be surprising, again?:huh:


    It's Chicago!  It's the Mayor of Chicago!


    The Mayor's office of Chicago has been a textbook example of abuse of power and overreach since the before the Daleys.  Bug Eye Lightfoot is just continuing the tradition!
