  1. I Like grits with lots of butter and a soft boiled egg all smashed up in the grits. Yum STL Suomi Also, like hard boiled eggs all smashed up with about 1/4 lb of butter and spread on fresh bread.
  2. Lessons learned free from the Chicago Police as a stupid teenager. Black and blue is not just skin deep - if done correctly it can penetrate all the way to the brain and change behavior. I thank the Chicago Police for their willingness to share their knowledge with me - even though it hurt at the time. STL Suomi
  3. Not to e contrary, but I use Anglo Saxon words frequently as I believe that they are much more descriptive and if used properly convey meanings more clearly. Using the word S**T is much more meaningful than feces or merde, same with the F-word, better than conjugate or baiser. In writing I can't imagine a 45 YO Marine Sargent saying "#2 or Poo-poo - can you? Why do we have an aversion to speaking our native tongue? A flock of Normans told us they disapproved of our tongue. And why is it that Latin is much more acceptable - really - when is the last time you met a Roman? Seriously. So, if Anglo Saxon is crude, rude, vulgar, common, switch to a foreign equivalent and suddenly you are OK. That is a load of S...bull roar. STL Suomi
  4. Best C-rats I ever ate were Ham & Lima Beans - I used to trade the disgusting turkey loaf and scrambled egg things for them. Sometimes you would get Ham and Butter Beans - that was outstanding. Darn mess Sargent was collecting them and he made chili out of them. That was pretty good also, but it cut down on my supply. STL Suomi
  5. I have a cousin who sees political messages in his bowl of shredded wheat. For myself, I was in the Walmart the other day and was walking through the isle containing cookies and such. Imagine my shock and outrage when I spied right in plain sight a box of crackers. I was really offended by this political display. There is no need to put crackers in a box. They can be retrained and saved. I may never go to a Walmart again. (sarcasm off - I am putting on my tin foil had to stop the messages from Seattle.) STL Suomi I did not see any political messages in the video at all. But I eat oatmeal from Snoqualomie Lodge in Washington State- maybe that is why.
  6. Looks like some village has lost their idiot. Would someone notify that village that we have found him. STL Suomi
  7. When I lived in Saudi Arabia we had most of our meat that was ground come as a 50/50 meat/soy . At first it tasted UGH. After a couple of years I really didn't notice. Then we came back to the US. Ground beef - the real deal, smelled horrible and tasted horrible. But, after a year or so, you could hardly notice. I think it is a case of what you are used to eating - tastes adjust a lot. I occasionally buy a BK - fake burger. Morning star isn't bad either. Ketchup Cheese Onions (and bacon will make almost anything taste better (hot sauce also if available). :-) OH - and yes - I would pay extra for a veggie burger - when I want one. STL Suomi
  8. Almost all of my grade school teachers were drop outs from the nuns. Many a time I had my hands feel the beat of a tattoo with a wooden ruler. No mercy was ever given - waste of time to ask. I have to say honestly that I do not have fond memories of these ladies. STL Suomi Sometimes they would get your attention by pinching the short hair on the back of you neck and lifting you up smartly. I solved that by getting a buzz cut. :-)
  9. My wife left her wallet on the newspaper box at the train station in our then very small own. $400 was in it along with driver license etc. It disappeared, no trace. Restitution will be made. Our Lord is watching and nothing gets by Him. I hope the person who did this will give back the money, not to me as I no longer live there, but perhaps to a charity and he/she repents from being a thief and asks for forgiveness. I have forgiven this person...they might have actually needed it...they can have it. I do not want anyone written out of the Book of Life over money. STL Suomi
  10. Finnish does have that capability - it is an agglutinative language - take a base word and add ending to further define the base - in my wife's case it is Chinese (Guangdong village dialect) TL Suomi
  11. I never referred o my parents or grandparents by their Christian names. Grandpa/Grandma, Mom and Dad. It was our custom to kiss my Grandparents and mom and dad on the forehead when we visited as a sign of affection and respect and left. My children kiss my forehead, grand kids give hugs.. Oh well. Wife referred to her mom as Baba and grandmother as Paupau (might be a village dialect thing). All the relatives had titles that identified their relationship - really hard to remember all of them. STL Suomi
  12. I bought one in 9mm. Neat firearm. Barrels interchange so if you wanted you buy one in 45 ACP - I think I saw one for sale, you could and then swap out the barrel for a 38/357 - might half to go with a longer barrel - but you can swap them out. I will eventually purchase one in 44WCF - it come in a 3" barrel. Get your hands ready for a sharp jolt however. The hammer is plenty stiff, but certainly usable. Trigger guard is removable. STL Suomi
  13. Right you are - 62 weeks is a LONG time - 65 days sounds much better - however, they added two weeks at the front end for quarantine time. Bummer. Maybe I was thinking about how long it felt like :-) STL Suomi
  14. Not yet. This is breakfast. Lunch we will have cabbage fried with glorious onions. YUM-OO And if lucky burbot pie. STL Suomi
  15. Howdy: Second grandson completed his Infantry Officer's Basic Course at Ft Benning on APR 3. Graduated #2 in platoon, top 10% in company. Pretty good I think. They shut down the jump school so he fiddled around til today. Off the Ranger School for 62 weeks of fun in sun. He is very excited, like his father, he has had this dream since he was five. Must be a genetic flaw, five generations of folks wanting to be bullet sponges. I am, of course, quite proud, Pardon me for being so. WARNING: He is a brand New 2LT - I don't know when they will give him a map - so beware.!! :-) STL Suomi
  16. I am using an old Finnish method to control Corvi-19. Lots of fish, primarily Campbell Cream of Lutefisk, followed by a couple of beer and brandy beverages, with an onion samwich and those Corvid-19 germs, well, they go somewhere else. Wife and dog did too. Very quiet in the house. I like that a lot. STL Suomi
  17. Norway, Michigan. Some are in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan and some in Menominee, Michigan. Los of lost Finlanders....:-) STL Suomi
