              If the US govt under Obama owned the Budweiser Horses, he would appoint a special grooming czar for foot hair management and each horse foot would have a staff dedicated to making certain that their foot was all AOK at any time….unless of course it was a federal holiday, in which case the darn horses could just have to wait and be dirty while fed employees get the long weekend off.

              Before a KC Chiefs game, mid ’90s, a team of Clydesdales was hitched and standing around before showtime. One of the wranglers I was talking to said there are 10 teams throughout the US that do appearances weekly. Costs about 100,000 p/week, p/team. These Clydesdales work for 5-7 years, then turned out to pasture. Yes, I was a gentleman helping Ms. Budweiser up to her seat on the wagon………

              Clydesdales are amazing.

              Feed them enough water and grains, and they actually march in parades for you, while simultaneously creating Budweiser beer!

              We see through a glass darkly, folks. You just never know.

            Back to my old Bud story.
            Sonecyears ago I was assigned to a section of the Mardi Gras parade assembly route where the Bud wagon was setting up. Being a cop, and totally taking advantage of it, I wentnover to where Bud team was being harnessed. I watched as they were set up and hooked to the wagon, then walked around the wagon. On the other side, sitting on the curb, was part of the wagon crew, next to them was a large beer cooler.
            I walked over and, as I watched, one of the crew opened the cooler and pulled out a cold, dripping, icy……Coors Light. The whole cooler was full if Coors Light.

        Up early today, TV weatherguessers were al showing maps of brightly colored death and destruction tearing through the area well before dawn. Even though the core of the tornado watch was well north of us and we were in a ‘marginal’ zone they told us all to get our Munchkin translators out as we were all in imminent danger of being blown to Oz.
        Future weather guesstimate maps showed huge angry swaths of red thru purple flooding and miscellaneous ruination bearing down on us.
        As of now, less than a 10th of an inch since midnight and the leading egde of the projected doom, immediately west of us, is broken and mostly light yellow to green on the Doppler.
        They need a Emmy catagory for ‘best fiction writing in a weather broadcast’.

                    We have bags of frozen persimmon, roasted squash, pumpkin and overripe bananas in the freezer for various breads. A chunk of good pie or fruit bread with a dollop of quality French vanilla ice cream and perhaps a brandy or Drambuie makes a nasty evening easier to take.

                    Sub Blueberries for Huckleberries…

                    Huckleberry Lemon Verbena Tea Cake with Vanilla Bean Glaze {Gluten-Free}

                    Don’t fret if you don’t have huckleberries; this cake should work equally well with fresh or frozen blueberries (especially wild ones), raspberries, or blackberries. If you don’t have fresh lemon verbena on hand, try using an equal amount of basil, mint, or lemon balm, or 1 tablespoon fresh lemon thyme leaves, or 1 tablespoon lavender buds, ground finely, in its place. If you or your cake-eaters are highly sensitive to gluten, make this with flours that are certified gluten-free, particularly the oat flour. If gluten isn’t an issue for you or your cake-eaters, feel free to try this with 1 3/4 cups all-purpose wheat flour instead of the rice, oat, millet, and tapioca flours. (Or use this recipe and add lemon verbena to it.)

                    Makes one 8×4, 9×5, or 10×5″ loaf

                    For the cake:
                    1 stick (4 ounces / 115 grams) unsalted butter, softened
                    3 ounces (85 grams) cream cheese, softened
                    1/2 cup (3.5 ounces / 100 grams) organic blonde cane sugar
                    finely grated zest of 1 lemon
                    2 large eggs, at room temperature
                    3/4 cup (4 ounces / 115 grams) sweet white rice flour (mochiko)
                    1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons (1.5 ounces / 45 grams) GF oat flour
                    1/4 cup (1.25 ounces / 35 grams) millet flour
                    2 tablespoons (.5 ounces / 15 grams) tapioca flour/starch
                    1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
                    1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
                    1 cup fresh or frozen huckleberries, plus 1/4 cup for topping the cake (7.75 ounces total / 220 grams)
                    3-4 tablespoons chopped fresh lemon verbena

                    For the glaze:
                    1/2 cup (2 ounces / 60 grams) powdered sugar
                    seeds from 1/2 a small vanilla bean (or a splash of vanilla extract)
                    1-2 tablespoons lemon juice (enough to make a drizzle-able glaze)
                    tiny lemon verbena leaves for garnish, optional

                    Make the cake:
                    Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 350ºF. Line a loaf pan (I used a 10×5″ pan but a 9×5 or 8×4 will work, too) on the bottom and sides with parchment paper (or grease with softened butter, dust with flour, and tap out the excess).

                    In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or in a large bowl fitted with your arms and a wooden spoon), cream together the butter, cream cheese, sugar, and lemon zest on medium speed until light and fluffy, 3-4 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing to combine after each, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. The mixture may look broken; this is ok, it will come together in the next step.

                    Meanwhile, sift together the sweet rice, oat, millet, and tapioca flours with the baking powder and salt into a medium bowl. With the mixer on low, stir the flour mixture into the butter mixture until just thoroughly combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Remove the bowl from the mixer, add the 1 cup of huckleberries and all of the chopped lemon verbena, and fold gently to combine, scraping the bottom and sides of the bowl to make sure the batter is homogeneous.

                    Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup huckleberries and press them gently into the batter.

                    Bake the cake until the top is lightly golden and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, or with a few moist crumbs, 45-55 minutes in a 10×5″ pan (longer for smaller pans). Lift out of the pan and let cool until barely warm, an hour or so.

                    Make the glaze:
                    In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, vanilla bean, and enough lemon juice to make a drizzle-able glaze. Whisk well to eradicate lumps. Peel the parchment away from the sides of the cake. Drizzle the glaze over the top of the cake and let cool completely.

                    Serve the cake at room temperature, scattered with tiny lemon verbena leaves, if you like. Extras keep well, airtight at room temperature, for a day or two, or refrigerated for up to a few days (let come to room temperature for best results).

                    Note to Czar: The glaze
                    may be a no-no for you.
                    Should be able to omit.

                    Sure thing. It’s worth the trouble to make, believe me. I think it is much better after it has chilled in the fridge for awhile, but that’s just personal. This is probably my favorite cake recipe. Incidentally, I found four different recipes for Jack Daniels cakes, on for cupcakes, and a Guinness cake recipe while locating this. 😀

    NOLA TV is glowing about how some 68-thousand fans attended the annual Bayou Classic football game between historically black Grambling and Southern Universities. They are equally tortuous in trying to spin the shooting in the French Quarter involving two attendees. The actors are said to be from ‘out of town’, one station said once they were students but neither that station nor any other said that again. No surveillance videos are being shown and any possible references connecting the Bayou Classic, its attendees or any other potentially embarrassing information is being quashed.
    So, apparently using revised standards, 68-thousand attendees with only one death and nine wounded (not counting persons in the Quarter/downtown who were just physically assailted) is a success!

        Don’t know, being a reactionary Southern redneck I was more interested in watching the press squirm trying to report the various assaults without reporting the various assaults.
        Note that this year there was virtually ZERO reporting on the huge parade of thugmobiles that traditionally parade Canal street at 5 mph, enhanced sound systems blaring obscene rap music atvear shattering levels, blocking traffic and sparking rolling gang fights. Citynpolice have sorta been told to ease up,on enforcement. Also the suggestions that locals who don’t really have a reason to be out on the streets in their own town might want to stay home during the ‘celebration’ were noticably absent.

          well, since Pat Obriens had to stop selling Hurricane glasses and would not let everyone contribute to the street broken glass litter, I have felt that NO just would not have much appeal banking on beads and jazz music…so maybe girls pulling up their shirts for beads replaced Mari Gras real stuff that we enjoyed a million years ago when I was there in 1962.

          Next up maybe….the Ku Klux Krews…..possibly?

            The Quarter’s turned into a huge money machine, none of the mass-sales bars use glass any more, all use pkadtic ‘go cups’. They just sell the cup with the drink as you can drink out of plastic and you can just leave without eating up floor space. They also don’t have to worry about glases being stolen for souvenirs or having to wash glasses.

            Some years before Katrina our activist mayor and city council decided to stick it to the Mardi Gras krewes, especially the old line 19th century ones, and ordered they allow anyone who wanted to to join or they wouldn’t be allowed to parade on city streets. Most caved in but a few just dropped parading, remainded krewes doing social programs and having parties but no uses of city property.

            Being part of a krewe is very expensive. Back in the early 80s I worked with a guy who was a member of a big, old krewe. His yearly dues were around $25,000 and that didn’t include his miscellaneous expenses which easily equalled his dues. Expenses haven’t gotten no betterer either, we’ve had a number of krewes over the last few years that have stopped parading due to the costs. Considering the expenses involved and the city leaders activism I can’t help but wonder when the city will start issuing ‘krewe stamps’ to facilitate inclusion?

          I believe that behavior is called “trolling”. Looking for a reason to take offense.

          A lot like walking impossibly slow through an intersection with pants half-down.

          Lookin’ like a fool with your pants on the ground.

    You Know, I was just scrolling down through the posts intending to make another comment here after the latest belly laugh provided by Czar above. (Wee, need to pick it up a bit, just saying).

    Was going to say along the lines of, that along with the gorgeous photos daily, the wisdom and knowledge shared, it is the laughs that bring me here daily.

    Then hit Stella’s, and the tears haven’t stopped yet. Crying as though she were my own dog, which was one of the last times that I actually cried like this.

    And that is the beauty of this Place. Don’t know you all, never seen ya. Yet you all have grown to be family. And that is what truly brings me here. Ok, gotta go before I short circuit something.

    For today’s episode of ‘Law & Order for True’, Louisiana: womam meets a man on line and agrees to meet him in another city. Guy meets her, kidnaps her and dtoves away with her. She manages to jump out of his truck (BTW, he’s also hauling a big tool trailer), runs into a store and calls 911. Police find truck, he drives some ten miles, police in pursuit, gets onto a bridge that’s about 26 miles long and totally over water with original police and new bridge police in pursuit. On the south side of the bridge he now picks up a group of shefiff’s deputies to the following…he’s still pulling the trailer…and he drives through one of the most densely populated areas in the parish, over another huge bridge over the Mississippi where he adds police from another jurisdiction…did I mention he’s still pulling a trailer?
    He stops in the city and a very close range gun battle ensues, recordings have it sounding like Saturday night in Fallujah. Situation ends when police bring the shooter’s Mom to the site to aid in his surrender. Casualties are one police officer grazed by someone’s bullet and minor injuries to the kidnapper. No word on how many bullet holes are in how much private property.

    Some good news…

    Donald Trump met with U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara on Wednesday at Trump Tower, a senior law enforcement official told NBC News.

    Bharara, whom many regard as the Justice Department’s most powerful prosecutor, told reporters that he agreed to remain the U.S. attorney in the Southern District of New York after a “good meeting” with the president-elect. He added that Sen. Jeff Sessions, Trump’s attorney general pick, previously reached out to him, asking him to stay as well.

    Stella, I always rely on Carlin’s advice regarding good dogs.

    Get another good dog, and the love is back. It’s unconditional. Puppy or old rescue.

    He’s crude about this fact: Life is a series of dogs.

    Get another of the same breed and you don’t even have to change the pics on your mantle.

    If Tripod kicked the bucket tonight, I’d have to get another kitteh by Monday. And I would.

    This been dropped here yet? Some right-on-target points. At least half of the reasons Left cut ties with Right were reasons some of my children did not come to Thanksgiving, “….to not be part of a toxic enviorment.” And this coming from them in spite of the fact that we never even talked Trump or election with them. http://www.nationalreview.com/article/442538/why-left-wingers-cut-ties-trump-voters

    “5. People on the right think that most people on the left are wrong; people on the left think that most people on the right are evil. …”
