Don't even think to about it. Put my Ford Pinto in the ditch, way back when, doing that!

It's kinda funny here whenever there is a forecast of impending bad weather. Everyone rushes to the store. If you aren't one of the early birds, there will be no bread, milk, or beer left on the shelves for you to purchase. And there will be a large dent in the peanut butter, jelly, chips, and lunch meats, as well as sodas.

I try to stay well stocked now so that I don't have to go out when the weather is bad. I keep a stock of peanut butter, sardines, tuna, crackers and mustard on hand, along with a few bottles of cold coffee drinks, for if/when the electricity goes out. And I usually have some carrots, celery, and salad makings in the crisper. I learned a lot from putting that little Pinto in the ditch.


In Virginia, it seemed, that everyone bought a years supply of toilet paper too!

How I envy you.

Eating so little these days I'm off to buy some Sustagen (think it's Boost in the US).

Can go all day without the slightest pang of hunger; don't even drink much water though I am getting better at that.

With my IBS, that's SOP.

I always have to have something to drink on hand, otherwise my back muscles scream in pain.

Rarely eat a full meal though - mostly because of my tummy issue, but I graze throughout the day.

Just had some Spinach and Artichoke Hummus dip and pita chips along with some iced tea.

Don't know about you, but I eat better when I keep things on hand. Since you like to drink beer, why not keep a few cans of sardines in either mustard or hot sauce and crackers handy. Hummus and pita chips or crudités go well with beer too.

A 'quickie' Red Eye ain't bad either. Half beer/half V-8 Juice, with a shot of steak sauce (A-1 if available), a shot of hot sauce, and maybe a pinch of salt. Lots of guys call it their 'vegetable platter'.

That doesn’t sound good! Would you drink more lemonade? Sometimes seltzer water is easier to drink more of, and they come with flavors too!

Ugly quilt project with an interesting start.


Must say I LOVE the idea!

Would also love to get involved in something like that, but right now I have nowhere to set up a sewing area where I can spread out - nor anywhere to stash cloth 'cause every nook and cranny is taken up by yarn.

Almost finished on with another teddy bear and just finished a kitty last night. AND I've got 3 afghans going. Sheesh, I just don't have anything to do Nope. Uh uh. Can't make me.  :nope: 'tant true!

From your standpoint, I’d modify the project to ugly afghan! Of course, I think that’s what the traditional black granny squares started out as! Now they are classic.

LOL, so true!

For the afghans I do, I try to use dark and 'manly' colors. And they have to be something that will keep my interest and, at least occasionally, challenge me. Mindless repetition bores me to tears, so I don't tend to make the same ones over and over again.

Right now I'm making this one in light grey, med grey, and gold: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/207658232788128360

And this one in the colors shown:
https://www.ravelry.com/patter...wearing-of-the-green

And one similar to this, but in light brown, dark brown, and caramel:
https://www.pinterest.com/pin/331859066272802918

This one is for me, but I've put it on hold until I finish the others:
https://www.pinterest.com/pin/27303141468459846

But last year I made one like this in 2-tone green:
https://petuniapill.blogspot.c...bow-blanket.html?m=1

And one like this in desert sand and desert sunset:
https://www.pinterest.co.uk/pin/630152172831436230

Plus a couple of solid color simple blanket types.

Been craving a banana split for a couple of days now...happens every now and then, but I usually ignore it until it goes away. Haven't had one in years.

This afternoon I caved in and had one.

Dang those things are good!

Just can't help yourself, can you.

I, on the other hand, had virtually nothing to eat at all yesterday and, by 2.18pm, have had nothing today except cold water.

Do plan, however, to finish off my pork belly. At 1lb and a bit, it has lasted me three meals along with a couple of potatoes.

LOL, I was surprised to find that you can get a banana split downundah. Best ones are made with a scoop each of vanilla, chocolate and strawberry ice cream. The one I had today was made only with vanilla. Still good though.

But ya know, it's not a good thing to starve your brain. Nor the rest of you for that matter! Leaves one without much energy and feeling depressed after a while. And getting dehydrated is really bad for both your brain and muscles.

Pork belly and potatoes sound good though - except for all that fat. Not a good thing for my tummy:

It happens every time.

Went looking for Salome and was reminded that Herod arrested John the Baptist because he feared the man was on the way to creating a rebellion.

The Dead Sea scrolls provide further evidence some Jews, at least, were spoiling for this rebellion. It also has been suggested that both John and Jesus were, for a time anyway, members of the Qumran sect, which definitely was training for the final great battle between good and evil.

John is beheaded, so what does Jesus do?

He makes sure his disciples have at least two swords -- all they would need -- then sends Judas off to tell the Romans...what?

That Judas could identify the man the Romans had been following for a year?

Or to tell the Roman that the rebellion was about to begin?

Odd, too, how many Christians insist the two men politically executed alongside Jesus soon after the rebellion* was quashed, were thieves.

Instead, they were lestai, rebels.

*That was the rebellion the Bible tells us brought about the arrest of Jesus Son of the Father, Jesus Bar Abbas.

Rome did not waste crucifixions on thieves. They used them mainly pour encourager les autres -- other rebels.

ACK! Literalists, can do nuttin' with 'em!

Hmmm, Salome asks for the Baptist's head on a platter, and yet when it came to Jesus the Christ, Pilate's wife pleads for him; Matt 27:19 While Pilate was sitting on the judge's seat, his wife sent him this message: "Don't have anything to do with that innocent man, for I have suffered a great deal today in a dream because of him."

The political climate was the perfect foil though... But let's try something different. Let's go for esoteric, huh?
