Lightening/Thunder ~ Sriracha Mayo ~ Banana Storage ~ Jim Harper ~ Citizenship Test ~ Creamy Crock*Pot Chicken Alfredo


Good 64º stormy morning.

HOLY COW!!! I have NEVER seen such a lightening storm EVER! It started after 4 am. Moving east. Lightening strikes constantly coming straight down on the mountains surrounding me. GOD I pray there are no fires! We already have two up here.. Onion Mountain near Selma and in Canyonville up north by the 7 Feathers Casino. SCARY! It's 5:15 and it's still going on. Ok, 5:35 and it's stopped!

Yesterday the temps climbed ... at 2pm it was 100.4, at 2:15 it was 99.8, then at 2:30 it was 101.1, and at 3pm it was 102!
Suz this is for you!

Yesterday for breakfast I had the last of my leftover chicken/vegetable soup I made. I squirted some of that Sriracha Mayo into it. OMG!! I am sooooooooo addicted to that stuff!! Certainly made the soup creamy and just spicy enough! Next will be a BLT!!!

Here is another interesting storage hint....

Problem: Mushy Bananas

Solution: Wrap tops of bananas in plastic wrap.
A handful of fruits emit ethylene gas to ripen themselves — and bananas are one of them. If you know you won’t be able to eat the entire bunch within a few days, simply wrap the stems (where most of the gas is released) tightly in plastic wrap. This helps reduce the amount of ethylene emitted, slowing the ripening process and keeping the fruit fresh for a longer period of time. The gas also causes other fruits and veggies to ripen more quickly, so this trick will help prevent nearby produce from going bad as well. Like bananas, cantaloupe, nectarines, pears, plums, and tomatoes also emit ethylene gas and should be stored away from other produce.

A good friend and a Wilsonite (S-63), Jim Harper, is celebrating his birthday today. Special good wishes to you Jim!!!

I hope you unplugged your computer during the thunderstorm. Especially if your backups are in the house.

Johnny Depp has cute dogs. Glad he got them back to California before they were impounded and euthanized by Australia.

It's quite common to limit stays in foreign countries to avoid double taxation. Just so I'm not forced to see his movies, he can live wherever.

My backups are on external hard drives that are unplugged from the computer when not in use.

Johnny Depp is one of those 'entitled' Hollyweirdos! Much like someone else .... and they think the rules don't apply to them.

I wouldn't give Depp a nickle of my money! ox

Isn't it just something how those Hollyweird types try everything to get out of paying taxes themselves. Yet they are liberal and think it's fine for the government to tax the hell out of the rest of us. He may be talented but he's a jerk!! This is why I only see one movie a year in a theater!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DONALD!! I just finished reading the bio of Walt Disney. A great read about a creative genius!!
