What could be better? I like them little, so you can just pop them in your mouth. I also like to fry them instead of in the oven.
The recipe is simple …
1) Move to a house where they do not have city gas.
2) Periodically have trouble sleeping.
3) Eventually your propane delivery service, during a “bad winter,” probably soon, will charge you four-dollars per gallon. After paying $800-a-month a few times, quit your propane company and install a pellet stove.
4) Bide the time at night, when you can’t sleep, watching television. Soon you’ll own a Nuwave2 Precision Inductive Cooktop, the ultimate nose-flip at those propane people.
5) Purchase pre-cooked frozen little meatballs Continue reading “Easy Viking Teriyaki Meatballs”
The latest from my kitchen is, I have some new apples. This news is similar to previous reports from the kitchen, but although I have new apples frequently, it’s still news.
These new apples are organic. I didn’t read the details, but they’re different than just a regular apple.
First, they come in a plastic bag with graphics, and it says “organic” in big letters; there’s even a fancy plastic bag zipper. Second, they are smaller than regular apples. These organic apples have little holes in them, and are also less shiny and good-looking than regular apples.
Oh, and they cost more.
So, they’re organic. In order to learn more, I pretended to have a conversation with Lou Johnson, President of the Organic Apple Association, a watchdog group that protects the organic apple industry from unfair trade practices. Lou lives in Texas “off the grid,” in a small camper.
This one hit a thousand views. I’m thinking about cutting my hair like this and nixing the beard. What do you think?

Why is Katie Couric hosting the Olympics? This is a sports event, not a political one. She shouldn’t be there; not to represent the United States. Not this year.
Tonight began Winter Olympics 2018 from South Korea, and a lot of great things happened, even some you could certainly call political, I suppose. But can’t people just get together? Even if the Koreas combine into one for the events, a single Korea, a motion, an expression, of interest to all earthlings … this is still a sporting event. Continue reading “Katie Go Home! (or, Welcome To South Korea for the Winter Olympics!)”
(MIAMI) Florida’s uppity manatee population may face deportation under a new effort by the Trump administration.
The popular “sea cows” are gearing up to take the case to court, while a local faction is considering migrating to Mexico … and a longer-term mission to Mars!
U.S. President Donald Trump hastily signed an executive order this week Continue reading “MANATEES FACE EVICTION”
Amid controversy over habitat, community standing, and even ethical posture, Florida’s manatees are suing billionare Elon Musk, and say they feel slighted by Musk’s latest adventures in space. A spokesman for a popular herd told the Associated Press in a prepared statement he was “shocked and offended” that people “care more about a little red sports car than manatees.”
The spokesman, who goes by just “Fred,” appealed to Musk, saying “if you can put a car in a rocket, you can put a manatee in one.” The lawsuit is based on Fred’s claim Continue reading “MANATEES SUE MUSK”
I let my cat outdoors sometimes. There I said it! It’s an impressively-controversial thing to do! In the winter, she doesn’t like the snow and “tries” to use the litter box, but she much prefers spending time outside. She has access to the roof, where she contemplates the lyrics to Grateful Dead songs, and she has times of day and areas of the yard, I keep an eye on her, and she comes when I call her.
Last Fall, I had a hunch she was having a great time, so I followed her around with my camera. Watch! She makes friends with a chipmunk I knew we had but could never get more than a glimpse of …maybe the same chipmunk that used to taunt Ziggy my Pit Bull by climbing inside a six-foot PVC pipe – he would go nuts trying to get the little thing!
Caregiving is a fine line. If a caregiver loses his credibility people can get hurt.
A person should be able to ask basic questions about drugs and alcohol without intending to be committed to an asylum, which is often the feeling that results from simply an evangelistic attitude about recovery. Suddenly you have an inheritable disease and if you don’t believe it’s for the rest of your life, you’re kidding yourself. What other mental illnesses are so … diagnosed without a license?
It’s easy to understand potential addicts and alcoholics running for the hills from the very thing that could save them, a meeting. Continue reading “The Art Of Caregiving (Honestly!)”
I like to complain about advertising, and hopefully share something to learn. But this time, no complaints …
just a great ad!
Jim Parsons look out! There’s a new girl in town!
Her name is Catherine O’Hara, and she plays Moira Rose on the comedy series “Schitt’s Creek,” an over-enunciating, hat-wearing, elegantly-awkward conundrum of a human, and in season 3 (just added to Netflix) cleverly dons a hat reminiscent of both fluffy raccoon and osprey nest as she tries to lead the people as an elected official.
The mayor, by the way, is Roland Schitt, and he named the town after himself. There. Got the most unscrupulous part out of the way. Beyond the name and your suspicion it’s designed for the under 13 crowd, Schitt’s Creek is a gem of anti-political, unapologetic, just a little gay, for grown-ups inappropriateness.

Here’s the lyrics:
Hey Up There! — Urso — G / C
Hey up there! — it’s just me!
There’s lots of us, down-here-wonderin’-how-to-be!
C’mon and join our little par-tee
Meet my friend! – his name’s Zig-gy
He makes funny noises just out of the blue

Quora is a website and app for overthinkers, like a candy store for questions and answers. I get a lot of views of my answers (mostly on the topic of addiction), making it my favorite place to play when I can’t sleep.
Today we didn’t talk about staged solar eclipses, one of my favorite fact-based topics, but we did discuss the fact the earth is probably flat. Of course! After seeing the new “flat earth propaganda pandas” on a TV news show yesterday, today we clashed on Quora. What fun!
The “flat is fun” science question I stumbled upon already had about 100 sometimes whimsical answers.
I couldn’t resist!

Ask the dog … Standing up isn’t as easy as it looks!
I like to talk about balance, in the Universe … and within our hearts and minds. Balance is a pendulum that can determine health.
Inside our bodies we have physical balance, allowing us to get around. Some do it better than others. How important is understanding your body’s geometric and gravitational muscular interactions, and your mind’s invisible mastery of balance?
