Good 41º foggy morning. Good grief, I slept til 7:45!!! Unheard of. Must have needed that!
It rained on and off all day yesterday. We got another 3/4" so this storm has dropped 2 1/2" here. In other places it was 3-6". The coast got a lot. Snow on the mountains. Shasta ski opened, finally, as did Ashland. The summit this morning looks cold....
..... and even snow at Hilt!!
Normally the California side is clear and sunny!
Checked with my nephew's family and friends in the Reno area to see if the fire was a danger to them. All ok so far. Joe Biden was at the school and giving a speech my niece said, and was told of the imposing fire. Didn't seem to bother him, he talked another 20 minutes! Yikes!
Yesterday I went to Costco. Always a fun shopping trip! I bought a new spice. It's called Simply Asia ....a blend of ginger, toasted sesame seeds, garlic, bell peppers, and soy sauce. OH MY GOOD!
Then to Black Oak Medical for a pulmonary test. While I was waiting in the lobby I chatted with a darling couple, married 47 years, James and Barbara. We talked about popcorn and about the bacon salt I had recently purchased. They were having company and she was going to check out some of my popcorn "recipes" from yesterday's blog. I gave her a card with my blog info on it. She emailed me later that they had gone to the Thunderbird Market and found the J&D Bacon Salt there and had it on their popcorn last evening. Cool.
The tech was Linda. Very sweet, pretty, and we chatted a lot! The test lasted an hour. You sit in a glass cage, like a phone booth, and have these breathing tubes you have to breath into...
After about 35 minutes of breathing tests I sat with a breathing machine and inhaled albuterol for 10 minutes and then took some of the breathing tests again to see if the albuterol made a difference. Will see the doc next Thursday to get the results and see what can be done about my constant coughing.
Pretty drive home.....
The lumber mill was going full steam!
For dinner I had thawed some white fish and some steamer veggies. I coated the fish with olive oil, mixed the Simply Asia seasoning with Panko and coated the fish. Baked it for about 15 minutes then added the steamers and roasted them along with the fish. WOW. GOOD!
Historically this date.....
So, check out the founder...... no wonder they are assholes!
The first 'chairman' of the ACLU was Harry F. Ward:
(1873–1966) was an American Methodist minister and left-wing activist. He was the first chairman of the ACLU, leading the group from its creation in 1920 until 1940. Ward was a prominent defender of Soviet Communism even if he did not label himself as a Communist.
