 (Easton...Wilson W'63) Graves celebrating anniversary

With their Barkley
Historically this date....
1892 – The father and stepmother of Lizzie Borden are found murdered in their Fall River, Massachusetts home.
1944 – The Holocaust: a tip from a Dutch informer leads the Gestapo to a sealed-off area in an Amsterdam warehouse, where they find and arrest Jewish diarist Anne Frank, her family, and four others.

1987 – The Federal Communications Commission rescinds the Fairness Doctrine which had required radio and television stations to present controversial issues "fairly". WHAAA???

1993 – A federal judge sentences Los Angeles Police Department officers Stacey Koonand Laurence Powell to 30 months in prison for violating motorist Rodney King's civil rights.

Births this date include....
1901 – Louis Armstrong, American jazz trumpeter and singer (d. 1971)

1944 – Richard Belzer, American actor and comedian

1955 – Billy Bob Thornton, American actor and writer
... weirdo
1962 – Roger Clemens, American baseball player
In 1961 there was the birth of an
arrogant, entitled, self-indulged, egotistical, self-serving,

conceited, narcissistic, pompous, idiotic, supercilious, 

superficial, unaccountable, aloof, insolent, self-important, 

schmuck. Guess who?
Ok, this came from George Bachmeier (LASD ret)... this is amazing how math works....
1.  Grab a calculator (you won't be able to do this one in your head) 
2.  Key in the first three digits of your phone number (NOT the area code -- example: 555-976-5555 -- you'd use "976" 
3.  Multiply by 80 
4.  Add 1 
5.  Multiply by 250 
6.  Add the last 4 digits of your phone number (e.g. 5349) 
7.  Add the last 4 digits of your phone number again
8.  Subtract 250 
9.  Divide number by 2. (How do they do that! Try it again with a 
     different number.)

Look at the number
Blew my mind!!!
Dinner ... Mushroom Casserole
3 cups fresh mushrooms
1 can cream of mushroom soup
4 cubes chicken bullion
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup frozen peas
1/2 cup diced carrots
1 small onion chopped
12 Saltine crackers
1/4 cup butter, melted
(My substitutions: re-hydrated mushrooms and fresh mushrooms, 4 t. Better Than Bullion ... water to boil in micro, add bullion and dehydrated onion and mix, re-hydrated peas, carrot slices, Flax Seed chips)

Mix soup and bullion and chopped onion. Combine with peas, mushrooms, and carrots. Season with pepper to taste. Place in greased casserole (used my Crock*Pot casserole)

Cover and bake 350º 40 minutes. Remove cover and let cook 10 more minutes to reduce liquid. Crush crackers and add melted butter.

Sprinkle over casserole. Return to oven and broil about 5 minutes.
(I cooked on low for 2 1/2 hours and never turned on the oven. Then I added in some cooked shrimp.)

Dessert was some Peanut Butter Vodka on the rocks!

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

August 4th
US Coast Guard Day

U.S. Coast Guard Day honors the military branch that protects our waters and shorelines. The U.S. Defense Department suggests that this day is largely an internal celebration for all Coast Guard personnel and their families, past and present. But, I'd like to encourage everyone to honor the brave members of this important branch of the military.
Celebrate U.S. Coast Guard Day by learning more about the responsibilities and functions of the U.S. Coast Guard. They are now playing an even  more extensive role in Homeland Security to protect our country.
I salute Coast Guard personnel today and every day.  I hope you do, too.
Origin of US Coast Guard Day:

On August 4, 1790, the Revenue Cutter Service was created by the U.S. Congress. Congress authorized the construction of ten cutters. These ships were built to to enforce U.S. tariff laws. The Revenue Cutter Service was the predecessor the U.S. Coast Guard.  The name "Coast Guard" was first used in 1915.

After reading Koon's book I wrote him a letter while he was in prison. I even called into radio shows about it. I got "into it" with a female captain on the radio when she said if women police had been on the scene that wouldn't have happened. Well she didn't know the story very well because there was a police woman on the scene in the beginner whose name was Singer. She was prepared to shoot Rodney King before Koon and Powell arrived on the scene. jeeeeze!

Your casserole looks amazing and I can imagine it tasted wonderful.

Tks for the shout out re the funny little guy. Forget what they are called.

Cats are hilarious!

You make me smile with your lists. Glory Days in the Plunk family were when Roger Clemens and Eric Plunk were the premier fast ball pitchers in baseball.

3 cheers for the Coast Guard and the amazing men and women for whom this is their calling.
