    Couple of rough day, I have been poked, CT scanned, MRI and blood has disappeared from my veins. Speaking of veins, new Doctor for esophagus veins, just before she put me to sleep, the ball with the hole in the center goes into your mouth. Well, as she is tightening the straps, so said; “now for the fun part”. And I was out like a light for about 3 hours…….

    WaPo has it’s second Death to Trump expose’ book in two weeks out. Yet another ‘Pulitzer Prize’ winning Bezos lap dog/employee gets highly classified, true, secret information from deeply placed CIA employees that they are in fear of retaliation so they must remain anonymous. Hmmmm, both books are sourced by anonymous leakers…wasn’t that called fiction at one time?

    Info seems to be largely coming out of the Russia House at the CIA, a section that was central to the Company during the Cold War but whose star dimmed after the Wall fell and attention turned to the Mideast. They’re also the same part of the CIA that’s heavily suspected of doing much of the pre-election dirt creation designed to sink Trump. Looks like they’re still at it.

    So Bezos has two WaPo-written anti-Trump books out in the last weeks, books designed to attack/hurt Trump and effect the midterms. So Bezos and the Company who are after Trump for fixing a US election are themselves trying to fix a US election – who’s going to investigate them and when?

      Good one, Lucille, and well worth 10 minutes. Thanks for linking. I don’t post on Twitter, but have an account so I can follow a few select people, including Imperator Rex; also President Trump, Thomas Wictor, Praying Medic, Sundance, Tracybeanz, Larry Schweikart, and one or two others. But not daily for any of them, as Twitter tends to wear me out. So I miss a lot. Glad you posted this.

    Good morning y’all. Almost Friday. In honor of Stella’s recent pictures featuring the beauty of the U.P., I am posting this recipe. I’ve made it before and it is quite good.

    I put more seasonings in mine though. I love my spices and flavors. In this one I like to add Everglades seasoning.

    Okay, I’m on one of my kicks, you guys just have to put up with me. I’m seeing some pictures and promos of Outlander, so I’m guessing another season has started, or will soon. So, this one in honor of Scotland!

    I don’t think I would change a thing in this recipe, assuming I can find the rutabaga. I love a good beef stew, and I’ve tried so many recipes, and of course, made my own up. Beef stew was my first supper as a wife.

    You should just never serve a good, hearty beef stew without some home made bread, preferably fresh from the oven! The two served together are a heavenly combination.

    Looks like this lady uses her leftovers for a meat pie too. I think there is a link in the recipe.

      Since I don’t make home made bread and I do love it, I buy the frozen loaves and let it rise in a buttered loaf pan and bake, It’s really close, but I’m sure not as good as yours.

        Make beer bread. 3 cups flour, 1 tbs brown sugar, one beer. Guinness if you want a strong and flavorful bread, which goes great with something rich like that stew, or I like a Belgian ale for a less strong taste.

        Mix together, put into a greased loaf pan, pour about a tablespoon of melted butter on top of the batter and bake at 375 until a pick comes out clean and the bread is browned, probably about 30-40 minutes, depending on your oven.

        No one can mess that up, and it’s just about as good as any bread I make, if served with the right kind of food. It would not be good with pasta, for example, or most seafood unless it’s something like fish and chips. But great with hearty soups, stews, roasts, etc.

    The big, fat orange inside cat is sort of a bully, he thinks our bedroom is all his while Daisy the border collie thinks her job is to control/limit access to the bedroom while we’re in it..
    The b&w in/out cat likes to occasionally sleep in with us but gets a bit strung out having to sneak by barking Daisy and hissing orange cat and frequently just chucks it and sleeps in another room. Problem is that b&w is really a people-lap-cat and really really wants to sleep with us.
    We each have a large side table/chest of drawers on our respective bedsides that an open space between the top and the drawers where you could put a clock radio, books, empty beer cans awaiting recycling…or the miscellaneous cat. I just happen to keep my sidearm with a flashlight there, easy reach if needed, so last night when I turned in I reached in to make sure my light and pistol were there and, right on top of the Glock, was the b&w cat. Guess he’d just had enough harassment and decided he wasn’t going to take any more; “I’m a cat and I have a gun!”.

    Newsmax is reporting that there’s a crazed survivalisty out there who’s threatening to kill President Trump. Seems he eluded capture for three months and they can’t find him.
    May I humbly suggest the Secret Service stake out the Washington Post building because sooner or later they’re bound to offer him a job and a book deal.

    Down to the last two books in the Great American Read challenge at my local library:

    1) Pilgrim’s Progress
    2) 1984

    Problem is, I don’t want to read the books, even though I’ve started reading both of them . I just want this challenge to be done.

    And it will be done as soon as I finish the books.

    This is a vicious cycle.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    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.
