    Final tally on rain – just over eight inches in two days. Neighbor’s upslope property thst was logged ladt month is bare to the dirt so I have tons of runnoff sliding into the lake. You can hear the roaring white noise from the overflow area over two hundred yards away, 30 acres of lake still have to drop 8-10 inches…gonna be a long wet week.

      If you’ve worked in a jail/prison you won’t be surprised at the residents myriad antisocial uses for bodily wastes. They doo everything they can, especisly fling them at staff. Our prison had to install a huge chopper in the sewerage outflow pipe because more chairs and mattresses were being thrown down it than what it was intended to handle. Yeah, fond memories.

        Dh’s SIL is a CO for Suffolk County, NY. Some people may not know that, in general Suffolk County, is a very wealthy suburb of NYC.. think “the Hamptons” and you get the picture. The lockup there is just like any other jail, same issues, same population. Not a job I could handle. The big thing there is that they have cameras everywhere, well, almost everywhere.

                  Many jails and most prisons are run by convict gangs. Look at how many prisoners per active guards you have, you have few ways to control the prisoners, especially when you have imprisoned gangsters who’ll tell you that if you mess with them they’ll hurt your family – and you know they will.
                  We used to find all sorts of stuff on shakedowns and the sole explanation was that the gurads had been bribed. Don’t know if you saw those infamous videos of prisoners right inside the Parish Prison waving real, loaded guns around, smoking dope and drinking booze. That’s not even mentioning how many cell phones are running around loose inside of the cells.
                  Nope, I had to work in the tiers during my time in the academy and that convinced me that I’d live on the street in a cardboard box before I worked in the prison.

              Preparation This is a moist, buttery banana bread loaded with banana flavor. Β 
              I used pecans in this bread but walnuts could be substituted. The recipe makes 2 loaves of delicious, moist banana bread.
              Ingredients
              Β· 1 cup butter or margarine
              Β· 2 cups sugar
              Β· 4 eggs
              Β· 1/4 teaspoon salt
              Β· 2 teaspoons soda
              Β· 4 cups flour
              Β· 6 large bananas, very ripe, mashed
              Β· 1 cup finely chopped pecans

              Cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Sift dry ingredients together; add to creamed mixture. Stir in bananas and chopped pecans.
              Pour banana nut bread batter into 2 well-greased loaf pans; bake at 325Β° for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. This banana nut bread recipe makes 2 loaves.

              This is the recipe I am using now, although I have used others in the past. I don’t like nuts in my banana bread, so I don’t add them. This is a rather dense, and quite moist, banana bread. The major difference here is the oil instead of butter, and the addition of sour cream. I imagine you could also use yogurt or buttermilk instead:

              Flour’s Famous Banana Bread

              1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
              1 teaspoon baking soda
              1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
              1/2 teaspoon salt
              1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
              2 eggs
              1/2 cup oil
              3 1/2 bananas, very ripe, mashed
              2 tablespoons creme fraiche or sour cream
              1 teaspoon vanilla extract
              2/3 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped

              Set oven to 350 degrees F. Line the bottom of a loaf pan with parchment paper.

              Sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Beat sugar and eggs with a whisk until light and fluffy, about 10 minutes. Drizzle in oil. Add mashed bananas, creme fraiche or sour cream, and vanilla. Fold in dry ingredients and nuts. Pour into a lined loaf pan and bake for about 45 minutes to 1 hour.

          The lactose free milk isn’t chemically loaded – they use a natural enzyme (lactase) to convert the lactose. I drink it too, but not non-fat, and I never use artificial sweeteners. You can use Stevia, which is natural.

        My wife’s great-uncle, a buyer of wool cloth, was on a business trip to the Netherlands long ago with his wife, and one night they stayed in the mansion of a mill owner, who asked them what they would like for breakfast the next day.
        Great-aunt, not wanting to put her host out, said, “Oh, just corn flakes and a banana would be fine.”
        Sometime after breakfast, she was mortified to discover that her host had sent his butler on a quest to buy corn flakes and a banana, which took the butler many miles and many stores to find.
        Her simple breakfast was quite exotic by Dutch standards at that time.

      Best thing I’ve read all day. One of the greatest blessings of my life has been having a husband who is a tough guy, as in mentally tough, as well as physically. Life hasn’t knocked him down for good yet, and it never will.

      His masculinity makes me stronger, better, safer. My feminity makes him better too. Together we pretty much kick ass. I happen to like that way of living.

      When tough times come, as they always danged do, it sure is nice not to have to worry about what he will do or how he will hold up. I want a man for a mate, not a lap dog.

      We also raised our sons with the idea that we needed to prepare them for life’s battles, not protect them from harm, and I have to say I could never have done that on my own. It was his strength of character and resolution that made me see the cruelty in raising weak children, and that often the very best you can do for your kids is let them fail, let them hurt, and never ever stand between them and the repercussions they should face when they do something wrong.

      Yeah, a lot of that I could have done with the grace of God, but not all of it with three rambunctious and strong willed young men. He knew better what it took to give them the absolute hard core baseline strength a man must have.

    New study of elitists reveals how out of touch they are

    http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2017/01/new_study_of_elitists_reveals_how_outoftouch_they_are.html

    In other words, there really is an elite at the very top of our income, education, and status hierarchy, and they cluster in just a few areas and cut themselves off from different people. Moreover, they tend to be children of people of higher status and education.

    A hereditary class cut off from the society they rule – not exactly the Jeffersonian ideal of America. More like the European, Latin, and Asian nations from which many Americans fled. And they live exactly where you would expect (list below). Neil Munro of Breitbart summarizes:

    A new study shows the college-graduate inhabitants of New York’s elite zip-codes are the most socially isolated Americans in the United States, and have the least familiarity with how ordinary Americans live.

    Close behind are the parochial professionals in zip codes around Boston, Silicon Valley and Los Angeles, whose social bubbles leave them isolated from the hopes and fears of their fellow Americans[.]

      Not ‘are’ but ‘are and have been’. Nouveau riche I worked with in Palm Beach, those who acquired their wealth within their memories, were far more understanding (if not accepting) of the working class’s lives. Those second generation or more removed (including their generally rotten kids) are totally divorced from non-monied reality. Makes me wonder if Pol Pot didn’t have to deal with the spoiled grandkids of Cambodian elite and that’s what set him off.
