  1. Please give us an update on Bear. Did he do better over the weekend.
  2. Oh, Boy. We get $14 back from Uncle..... I have to say I miss the days when my CPA would call and tell me to write Uncle a check for something line $8000, and I would mope for days. I miss those times now. But hey.......mom and I get a Krystal Lunch with our refund. And we don't owe Uncle Nathan anything.
  3. I have recently started doing some business with a company in China. My contact there, Yanshan Xu told me in an email today that he had purchased the NORTH Poultry Production Manual, 5th edition and that he noticed one of the authors had my name. And he asked if that was me? I shall be proud to answer,"it is I sir!!!" Talk about a small world. This is like a 1000 page tome written by 25 or so authors, mostly university professors and researchers. I am one of the few from private industry. Made my day.
  4. Why thank you m'aam! We don't get bored with the same old same old My new barking boston butt is terrific. Take a $-0.99/pound boston butt and rub it down with: cup of brown sugar cup of kosher salt Garlic powder Cumin Black Pepper Paprika I cut a checkerboard pattern into the fat side, and then slather on the rub, coating all 4 sides and both ends. But in a big bowl, or whatever and cover with plastic wrap for the night in the fridge, Next afternoon take a roasting pan with a heavy bottom, and brown the fat side first in a tablespoon or 2 of oil, then brown all 5 of t
  5. Head for high ground, Laddies!!! But watch out for the lightening
  6. Yes indeed. With subdivision construction gearing up again, the county needs to be setting aside a nest egg to top coat the asphault in the subdivisions when the RBMD abandons them, and to take care of the other work that the bonds the RBMDs gave the county were written to take care of. What did the last round cost us ? A tad over $10,000,000 ? We need our priorities lined up well.
  7. We love simple soups. Maybe paired with a sandwhich, salad, or both. And as it gets hot outside, we really enjoy cold soups. And Vichysouisse is one of our favorites. Big fat leeks, onions, white potatoes, homemade chicken stock, and some parsley and chives. We can the soup WITHOUT the cream, and it will keep forever. Then when you want a bowl, open a jar of the soup base and cut it 1 to 1 with cream, sprinkle on some chives and a grating of nutmeg, and you have dinner ready in 5 minutes or less. A quart of the potato-leek soup base will make 2 quarts of soup and feed 5-6 people alo
  8. The meat producers used this stuff to add fat and lean meat to ground beef and other mixtures [meatballs, meatloaf, etc.] They would chemically strip the remaining fat and meat from the bones, process them, and then mix them in like 8-10% with the chuck, round or whatever to make the ground beef. The actual product is not bad looking at all, and is edible "as-is", but the industry found the best use was to add it as a filler for ground beef. It is 100% beef. The photos of the stream of product coming out of a grinder is another product entirely, and ABC refused to take back the story a
  9. As I recall it started with Jamie whats-his-name from the English cooking show, and the ABC did an expose, but got a lot of facts wrong, including showing video footage of what they "Called" Pink Slime which actually was a total different product not used in Edible ground beef. But ABC kept it on the news until they broke the company and shut down 75% of thgeir production, costing a lot of jobs and one hell of a lot of money. And made the price of ground beef go up as well. I am curious to see how ABC and their fake news do with this. The case brought by Beef Products against ABC
  10. For probably the first time in 20 years, I have no bones in the freezer. I made 8 gallons of stock last month, and made 8 gallons again in the past week. Best to do it while its cold, as the stock itself has to come to a boil.....10 gallon soup kettle and it makes a little less than half in stock or broth. 4 gallons or so. I bring it to a boil, and then let it simmer for 24 hours or so, Decant it and double strain it into quart jars, and then do 9 at a time in my big canner/pressure cooker at 12-15 psi for 45 minutes. Thad also requires a lot of heat, so it is best taken on in t
  11. This Pub, along with Downtown Dallas, and Paulding County in general have as much of a chance in doing well as a snowball's chance in hell, When you have nothing buy a bunch of lamebrains running the show, you will have little success. I believe the current leadership has more than aptly demonstrated their lack of being successful at promoting Dallas, Hiram, or Paulding Country and I expect that to continue on into the future. It is very challenging to SOAR like and EAGLE, when you are surrounded by a Flock of Turkeys.
  12. Well, I have gotten over the poulltry show. But I did eat well for 2 weeks.....l. had a bunch of Brasilian visitors who came early and stayed for a week or so afterwards for some meetings and to visit some hatcheries, and they insisted on eating at every Chuhascaria in town....on their nickle. So we did Fogo Du Chao, the one across from the old Slimelight on Piedmont, another one in Sandy Springs, downtown, you name it. And of course all the parties and dinners the week of the show. So I have only gotten back into my cooking routine here for the past 2 -3 weeks or so. Got MY GROU
  13. The county can obtain competent legal services the same way most governmental agencies and entities do......they hire a lead attorney, and assistant, and a couple of para-legals and secretaries. And save half a million dollars a year in the process while getting Just and Fair representation from the county legal office. Something we have NEVER gotten from the crooks at THE FIRM. They have all been paid well over the years by the Robber Barons, and they may just end up in the Food Stamp line to eat as well in the future. THE FIRM has eaten high on the HOG for close to 30 years. Witho
  14. I would venture to say: Pat Tibbitts was not the county clerk. She was David Austin's administrative assistant. I would guess that Carmichael could hire her back, but then I would also guess Pubby's Gang of Four could fire her. Austin lied thru his teeth to us over and over and over again, and stood by and watched his Robber Baron Mega Developers buds get away with stomping us into the ground, knowing what they were doing was wrong. Stealing is stealing. Cut and dried. They stole 12-1/2 feet by 208 feet of our property and gave it to the developer and told us too bad when we compl
  15. There were four churches and a synagogue in a small town: a Presbyterian church, a Baptist church, a Methodist church, a Catholic church, and a synagogue. Each church and the synagogue had a problem with squirrels. The Presbyterian church called a meeting to decide what to do about their squirrels. After much prayer and consideration, they concluded the squirrels were predestined to be there and they shouldn't interfere with God's divine will. At the Baptist church the squirrels had taken an interest in the baptistery. The deacons met and decided to put a water slide on the baptistery and
