  4. Apropos of fun, and goodness, one of the greatest rap songs ever produced, from that incredibly short period of time when popular rappers just bragged about how adept at rhyming they were, and cautionary-tale-telling. This song is just pure fun, and quite well-engineered. Ahead of its time.

    This is what I listened to when I was a 13-year old kid.

    Best at high volume with lots of bass. For 1984 this was a genius production.

    Wiggy wiggy wiggy! (shut up!) Know the whole thing. Every rhyme, every arpeggio, beat, and melody. I learned to rock like a Dolomite!

        Ah, Good Morning S&S! Thanks for asking.

        Yes, the oven is in and no, we were not blown to smithereens! Everything went according to plan with the small exception that the ‘certifying team’ didn’t show until around 4:30. Not a problem except that it put a crimp (ha!) in my baking-all-afternoon plan.
        I baked some 10 grain bread last night – it was lovely and go figure – it cooked for just the amount of time called for in the recipe… Woot!

        Hope your day is a wonderful one!

      Another great quote – I really like this one πŸ™‚ I never knew there were so many literary references to food – but it really does make sense!
      I’m guessing you had a problem with propane -Thank God you’re OK!
      Here in NH you can build your own house yourself, but the one thing you can NOT do is your own propane. Interesting that all of the workers for propane have grey hair – no younguns working those jobs!
      When living in Mass. we purchased a gas stove and micro from Home Depot and the “installers” got into a yelling argument in our kitchen as to who could read English better to understand the instructions. The microwave broke in 2 days, and needless to say we had that stove inspected twice before using.

      • G&C, I am continually amazed at Lburg’s literary food quotes. One would think the well would run dry, but nope. Most of the best books have great discussions about the joy of food, no matter what the books are actually about. Lately, as I have been reading Lewis’ Narnia books, and Lburg’s daily quotes, I notice that fact more and more. The chapter “A day with the Beavers” is a wonderful food chapter, in The Lion, Witch, and the Wardrobe. There is a chapter called “Turkish Delight” in the prequel, that is amazingly well-written, as well. Makes you salivate just reading it!

        Someone once described Tolkein’s Lord of the Rings saga as “the eatingest book ever written.”

        I disagree, because Robin Hobb’s Soldier Son Trilogy took that title away from Tolkein. Some serious eating going on in this series. The main protagonist goes from soldier to morbidly obese, and back again, and the food discussions are endless and exquisitely written.

    Good morning all. I know this isn’t a food thread, but it’s bacon, and don’t we do that on the daily discussion?

    I was shopping at Publix yesterday and they always have fresh cooked food samples and recipe cards. This woman I had never met has a mouthful, and is wildly flagging me down. I thought she needed water or something. Turns out she loved the food and was recruiting people to try it, all on her own.

    So, this is the recipe. Clean and scrape carrots, wrap them in bacon, drizzle them in real maple syrup, sprinkle with salt, and cook on a foil lined pan sprayed with Pam. Let me tell you, I danged near joined the woman flagging people down. It was that good. So, I added two bags of carrots and two packs of a thin cut bacon to the buggy, and one more dish for Christmas, even though I don’t know how we are transporting it all to my son’s house.

    And carrots have always been one of the meh vegetables for me.

    Morning all! πŸ™‚
    I have 2 images for today. The 1st I included because it struck me as showing how alone in this world Joseph & Mary were, (but God was with them). I apologize because I have not been able to find who the artist is. The second image is also of their journey by donkey, & is from “The Nativity Story”, a movie by New Line Cinema – Temple Hill Production. I saw this movie about 4-5 years ago, and recently bought the DVD because DH & I liked it so much. Among many things I remember was how rich and elaborate King Herod was, and how simple and humble Mary and Joseph were. However Herod quickly went murderously insane trying to hold onto power, and Mary and Joseph partook of the greatest power of all, and eventually after a life of love and fidelity, surrounded by loved ones, went to Heaven.

    The lighthouses remind me of how every year we leave a single lit candlestick in the window on Christmas eve for Mary and Joseph to invite them into, and know there is room for them, in our home.

    β€œMental Health Issues”: Muslim Who Rammed 18 People With Car Has β€˜No Link to Terror’
    Posted on December 22, 2017 by Paul Joseph Watson
    The new convenient excuse that allows us all to ignore reality. Ramming a vehicle into 19 people is a totally normal response to being a drug user and being a bit sad, especially if you’re from Afghanistan. Anyone who questions this explanation is an Islamophobic bigot. More recently, numerous potential acts of terrorism committed by Muslims have been quickly dismissed by officials asserting the perpetrators were simply lashing out as a result of mental illness or drug use. It’s far easier to just label every attack the work of a deranged individual, rather than having to face up to the far more serious problem that first world nations are importing a belief system that is quite brazen in promoting the use of violence as a means of accomplishing political and cultural power.

    Minneapolis: Woman Stabbed 14 times By Muslim Migrant – Local Media Ignore Attack
    Posted on December 22, 2017 by Pamela Geller
    This attack has not been covered at all by the Minneapolis newspapers, and other coverage of it doesn’t mention the identity of the attacker. This report doesn’t either in the print version.
    Only in the video do we learn that the attacker was a β€œSomali man.” … some people in Minneapolis might start to get the idea that inundating the area with Muslim migrants wasn’t such a good idea.
    This slanted coverage of the most important story of our time is unacceptable, and it leads to attacks like this from Muslim migrants who are emboldened, knowing that no serious effort will be made to stop them, and victims who are careless because they don’t realize there is a threat. This has to stop. Two comments from that site -1.Even if they catch him he will be diagnosed with a mental disorder.2.Islam IS a mental disorder.
    I am so glad this problem, and the “mental illness” cover-up is being exposed. It is years past time.

      Minneapolis…the same city that’s going to let the Muslim Somali cop off for murdering the Australian woman after she reported what she thought was a crime happening in the alley behind her home. According to her father, they aren’t giving out any information to the family or appear to be going forward with an investigation. Guess the powers that be are phobic about being called Islamophobic and to the detriment of justice.

    “COUNSELOR – CHRISTMAS JOY” by Mel Lawrenz

    For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
    β€” Isaiah 9:6

    β€œWhat is the baby’s name?” The people in Bethlehem who heard about a baby being born in a stable must have stopped by to talk to Mary or Joseph. And the new parents voiced the name they had not chosen for their son: Jesus. But hundreds of years earlier, other names had already been announced for the Anointed One. Among them, Isaiah spoke of one who would be called Wonderful Counselor.

    What was a β€œcounselor” in biblical times? It was one of the roles of a king or other high official, and their task was to be wise and judicious in the face of the most difficult questions, the most complicated negotiations, and the most intractable problems. The counsel of the king was supreme, but it was not infallible. We all know there is good counsel and there is poor counsel.

    The one born of a virgin would be called Wonderful Counselor. Now that is something different. The Hebrew word for wonderful means something out of the ordinary, clearly different, beyond human explanation.

    It is the knowledge described in Psalm 139:1-6: “O Lord, you have searched me and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O Lord. You hem me inβ€”behind and before; you have laid your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.”

    When we contemplate the Nativity of Jesus, we cannot help but be full of wonder. This is how God came to us, and it is wonderful because Jesus gives us an unclouded vision of what our lives are supposed to beβ€”good counsel. He instructed us with words of wisdom. He exemplified for us what it looks like to lead a life devoted to the Father.

    Mel Lawrenz is minister-at-large for Elmbrook Church, Brookfield, Wisconsin and the author of 18 books.

    This is a happy story from Hungary and Poland with a season appropriate theme of family.
    http://www.breitbart.com/london/2017/12/22/hungary-grow-population-without-mass-migration-eu-not-family-friendly/
    Hungary: We Will Make Our Country Family Friendly So Population Can Grow Without Mass Migration
    The Hungarian government has pledged measures to support naturally growing the population β€” rejecting mass migration β€” as an effort to halt the demographic decline after Prime Minister Viktor OrbΓ‘n declared 2018 to be a β€œyear of families”. β€œBrussels does not really have a family-friendly policy,” The Hungarian provisions, will β€œsupport childbearing in a working society”, built on three pillars: to reduce the cost of living, to ensure that Hungarians are not excluded from having families because of their economic situation, and to raise, in value, the public perception of child-rearing. Delegates also pledged to stand by traditional values by vowing β€œto protect life, marriages based on the relationship between man and woman, [and] the family on which the whole of society is based because it is the basis for a sustainable future”.
    In a similar drive to grow the population without importing migrants from the Middle East and Africa, Poland’s government released a light-hearted, educational video in November encouraging Poles to β€˜breed like rabbits’.
    However, migrants have cost Germany billions with reports showing most are unemployable and uneducated, taking more from the welfare state than they put in. What Germany has received in payment for her open borders policy is a rise in crime, rape, and acts of terror – facts which have not escaped VisegrΓ‘d politicians who have vowed to not allow the β€œbloody harvest” of multiculturalism to come to their countries by rejecting the Brussels edict to accept migrants.

    my comment – The above pic is from a tweet in the story. Part of the NWO, progs plan is to make it so awful that good people do not want to bring children into an awful world, therefore they have less opposition.

    Just watched an ANTIQUES ROADSHOW UK episode held at avery beautiful estate, Bowood House in the U.K. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bowood_House

    There’s a museum containing Napoleon artifacts, among which is a bronze copy of his plaster death mask. He was teribly ill the last months of his life, some believe today from stomach cancer.

    A frontal view of another mask copy–not sure who owns this one.

    Such a complicated, supremely self-centered man. The terror and horror he inflicted upon the world is obvious, yet we can see his humanness easier than we can that of other dictators. Wonder why that is.

      Here is a very odd Napolean story. When my oldest son was about to make his First Communion, the seniors in the parish each picked a child to write a letter to, heopefully telling a story or experience or something that would help the child understand the gravity, the joy, the reverence due the Sacrament. It was also hoped that it would encourage the children to receive the Sacrament frequently and worthily.

      My son got a letter from a man who told the story of Napolean’s First Communion. I have never researched it, but apparently Napolean wrote about it to someone. The letter directly quotes him as he tells what a special, wonderful day it was, what it meant to him, and that it was the happiest day of his life.

      It was a very moving letter. I still have it somewhere.

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

    The days are getting longer.

    I like to point that on the 22nd of December.

    Used to drive my dear hubby crazy. He did not see the joy and the anticipation of the thing. By the end of May, I could say, “See? Toldja……………..”

    Sometimes he thought I was cute and amusing. Other times not so much.

    My grandson was here this week with his family, including a 2 1/2 year old and a 5 1/2 year old. About wore me to a frazzle, they did. In fact, I believe they did. But we had lots of stories about Grandpa and Grandson got to start picking out some significant tools (along with the help and supervision of his local uncle here) from Grandpa’s stash, to become his property now. It was nicely done all around and well done. I’m grateful to have some of those processes under way.

    That distribution of “important stuff” needs to have a flow to it: if it’s done too suddenly or out of place, the results can be hard to live with. I’m blessed with sons who are willing to discuss it, and are not weird bout what to do – just wanting to work it out together so that those who receive Grandpa’s tools are those who have tghe capability to use them and the responsibility to care for them.

    It was a good visit but I may never recover. Makes me wish I was a drinker.

    Menagerie, have one for me, please. Then give me a couple of days………………
