My Mom ~ Welfare Rates ~ Veggies/Salmon/Pupusas ~ Pest Control ~ Meringue Pie

Good 53º clear  but gonna get up in the 90ºs later morning!

Today was my Mom's birthday. She was born in Cleveland Ohio, to Scottish immigrant parents, at her aunt's house next door to Bob Hope's house.


Today would also have been Sid Hackel's (LASD SR Capt)birthday. He was the guy who would go with The Duke on Wild Goose fishing.

Mom and Sid ... HAPPY BIRTHDAY. Love & Hugs. xo

Can you believe this s**t!! No wonder nobody wants to work. They make more staying home!!! These are the welfare rates across the country......

Decided to clean some stuff out of the freezer and cook.. found some pupusas (got them at Costco... Salvadoran stuffed masa flat bread. Thicker than corn tortillas.) stuffed with cheese, a salmon steak, frozen green beans, frozen peas, chopped bell peppers, and in the fridge some Chelada (GOOD!!!) 

I put the veggies in the crockpot, topped with the salmon steak (all frozen) and put some clarified butter (ghee) on the salmon. Added in some Chelada for moisture. Turned on high for 2 hours, then to low for 3. The last hour I added three pupusas on top.

When I plated it the pupusa went on the bottom, then the salmon, then the veggies, and I sprinkled on some mozzarella cheese.

Historical haps and famous births for this date:
Japan surrenders on my Mom's birthday. The treaty was signed on mine!
Births.. Julia Child, Debra Messing, Ben Affleck .....

Yesterday the Pest Control guy, Jimmy Stewart (no, not the actor... he died in 1997) was here. We toured the barn. He said what I thought was mouse or ground squirrel droppings was bat guano. They are getting in but no evidence of them nesting in there. Today Darin comes out and starts tearing out unprotected insulation on the stairs and cleaning out some of the mess. Then they will enclose, under the eves, the openings to the barn where the birds are going. What a mess! THEN I found out one of the guys coming out to help with this is a former Dodger catcher (1983-1987), Jack Fimple!!!!
 HOW FUN!!! Being an old Dodger fan I can't wait to meet him!!!

All I know. Happy TGIF. Nuff said. Ciao.

Lemon Meringue Pie Day


Relaxation Day is a day to kick back and do nothing. Ahhhh! What a great day.

The stresses, the hustle and bustle seemingly consumes us, every day of the year. Even Sundays are no longer days of rest and relaxation. There never seems to be a day to just kick back and relax.  For those us with a hectic lifestyle, Relaxation Day is a day to look forward to. It provides a break from the madness of your busy work and personal schedule. Todays is the day to enjoy either doing absolutely nothing, or partaking in your favorite relaxation activity.
Avoiding stressful activities today is the rule. For example, if golf is your favorite hobby, yet it can cause you stress, then make plans to play golf another day. Spending the day in a hammock is a far more appropriate activity.
Top  Ten ideas to enjoy on Relaxation Day:
  • Do nothing today
  • Go to a Spa
  • Go fishing
  • Play a round of golf(caution: not always relaxing)
  • Lounge around in a hammock
  • Take a bubble bath
  • Spend the day at the beach
  • Go to the  movies
  • Do a little gardening (no heavy duty work, though)
  • Have a picnic in the park
