Happy Birthday Laura Bush

“Sixty-six today,” Admin says.

“And a lover of books and reading,” says Spence.

“Exactly.”

Welcome Frisbee enthusiast, Princess.

    Since this is the time of year when we can all use a few extra days, I’m helping everyone out by making this December 1st. I don’t know what I did, but I was
    very busy November 31st, 32nd, and 33rd. Here is the last calendar page for this year.

    Thanks for the calendar, Tyb! Great picture of you, as always!
    Good morning, all!

    Thanks TYB. I hope you’ve been busy in a good way on your non-exsistant days.

    I don’t have time to even finish yesterdays! I’m out of here for the day.

    Two doctor appointments and various errands.

    Good Morning All!

    Tyb, thanks so much for your calendar page. You never take a bad picture!

    Happy birthday, Mrs. Bush!

    Siber-H, of Chet’s new friends is a husky that has a blue eye with a bit of brown like you.

    From last night’s blog: Belle Starr I like your brand of arithmetic. :)

    Today!…What is today? I’m all confused what with that really long month of November and the Auction and then the earthquake…grunt!

    9:40 am on December 4th, 2012

    Ummm, One more thing before I go . . Good thoughts for YSAS at 12:15 today, Blog time.

    Audition for a country wide commercial.

    Melanie, I’m sure YSAS will knock ’em dead! Westchester sends only the most powerful good thoughts out to YSAS!!!

    Morning all.
    Waiting for the washer. But Dad did ALL the laundry yesterday…..how are supposed to play with the new machine?
    And then packaging auction items and getting to the post office.
    Yikes – we better get going!

    Good morning all, and Happy Birthday Laura Bush.

    Going to go vist our local book store on the square before picking up Jack from preschool. Between the Lynes, I believe it is called.

    Did anyone read Hotel at the Corner of Bitter and Sweet? Thinking of getting it for Baye, age 13. Sparked by a discussion about religious tolerance in this country, and the thought of some that people should only be allowed to live in the US if they follow certain beliefs. Barb remembered this book about the “camps” that were set up in the early 40’s where we required Japanese Americans to live. Could it happen again?

  11. BearSpiritDog
    10:34 am on December 4th, 2012

    It was a Looong November this year! That’s okay. It gives us more TIME to do all we have to do.
    TYB: Once again, Thank You for the calendar page, the last one of the year.

    Barb&Magpie: We have not read that book. Is it a teen novel? Sounds interesting none the less.

    Everyone is very Busy this morning. We here are getting a somewhat late start. Haven’t even had breakfast yet.
    BBL.

    (Royals: Have fun with your new (machine) toy)

    P.S. Paws crossed for YSAS!!!

  13. Barb & Maggie
    10:57 am on December 4th, 2012

    Yes, Paws crossed for YSAS, and thanks to TYB for his calendar.

    BSD, no it is not really a teen book, but I think Baye could read it with no problem. It is written from the prospective of a young Chinese boy, whose parent still speak Chinese at home and cling to old world beliefs. He falls for a young Japanese girl, who ends up being sent to a camp. It was very enlightening, and sad that fear could cause us as a society to do that to thousands of people. People lost their homes and jobs because we were afraind that they had an allegiance to Japan. It was done even more brutally to the Native Americans a century earlier.

    I’m making granola.

    It would be fun to see YSAS on a tv commercial.

    Beautiful holiday tree photos here on the blog: from T&G, the Howlers and Staff (B&M: Did we miss your tree? Is it up yet?)
    Riö: Looking forward to seeing your tree set up down in the Hobbit Den (with the Rockies ornament on it of course!)

    Rose: You are getting closer to the day! So happy you have your Stormy K to keep you toasty warm.

    Melanie: Hat hair? Maybe, but a dry SK hat for you today, yes?
    GO YSAS!!!

    Thoughts and prayers going out to Gus&BooBear’s family for a smooth procedure.

    Ten percent off – 1st Tuesday of the month grocery shopping is this mornings activity.

    Thinking good thoughts for YSAS in commercial land.

  18. Masquers

    Up/Down???
    B: What is your recipe for granola?

  19. Masquers

    We are indeed thinking of G&BB’s mom & dad this morning. Prayers surrounding you from all of us.

    Lucky thoughts for YSAS!

    Thanks for the heads up, Rose. I will check out the Husky.

    Happy Birthday, Laura Bush.

    Spence and Admin. must have had Natasha’s help in obtaining the random generator from East Germany.

    Gus&BooBear, I hope all goes well today…thinking of you guys.

  23. Rose
    12:00 pm on December 4th, 2012

    Masquers, 85 days and counting. I can’t tell you how happy I am to have won the SK!

    Buena Suerte, YSAS!!!

    G&BB, sending good vibes to your dad!

  24. BearSpiritDog
    12:02 pm on December 4th, 2012

    Barb&Magpie: We think the book would be an excellent choice for Baye and we would like to read it also…will be checking at the local library to see when it is available

    Wookie: Will your mom and dad be posting a photo of the Holiday Table and Menu? It is always such an elegant setting and a pleasure to see.
    Have you been to visit Grampa recently? How is he doing? What a wonderful thing it is for you to be allowed inside the facility, especially in these colder temperatures.

    Siber-H: Ha, Ha. That’s a good one about Natasha and the RNG.

    Visualizing the Best for Gus&BooBear’s Dad.

    Barb and Maggie, what we find scariest is how little 2-leggeds seem to learn from history.

  28. B.Stover
    12:35 pm on December 4th, 2012

    Masquers: I got the granola recipe from a blog called Gardener’s Journal. I’ve put the recipe on Dishlicker.

  29. Masquers
    12:39 pm on December 4th, 2012

    Thanks, B!
    Howlers: Sad, but true.

  30. Barb & Maggie
    12:44 pm on December 4th, 2012

    Oley, We hear you! People talk of deporting or “relocating” certain groups to camps. They say “this country was built on Christian values and if you aren’t Christian, you’re out of here”. We say, no the country was built on freedom to worship, or not, according to your beliefs. Once this line of thinking starts, where do you stop? We are getting dangerously close to a political discussion, so we will get down from the soapbox now.

  31. Riö – The Evil Pug
    1:07 pm on December 4th, 2012

    Recipes!…Any of youse guys have a recipe for Slim Jims?…snort!…Thats what I really need right now…grunt!

  32. OleyHowlers
    1:07 pm on December 4th, 2012

    So Maggie, what are you asking Santa for? heh heh! See! We can ‘t even remember what we were talking about!

  33. Rose
    1:20 pm on December 4th, 2012

    B: Can you tell me what “i.e” and “e.g.” mean. I know “e.g.” translates as for example, and “i.e.” translates as that is.

  34. Masquers
    1:38 pm on December 4th, 2012

    Rose! Funny you should mention this topic. This very thing came up recently in a discussion.

  35. B.Stover
    1:44 pm on December 4th, 2012

    Rose: ie is “id est” and eg is “exempli gratia.”

  36. Barb & Maggie
    1:56 pm on December 4th, 2012

    We started our rant this morning because of our intended visit to the local book store. Barb was going to ask if the had the book, Hotel at the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, which was published a few years ago. She walked into the little store, and there it was sitting on a display shelf right in the front of the store! They even gift wrapped it for her. Now we have 1 Christmas gift wrapped. Yea!

  37. Rose
    1:56 pm on December 4th, 2012

    Masquers, Great minds think alike!

    Thanks for your help B!

  38. Basil and Sage
    2:02 pm on December 4th, 2012

    Barb – who cares if you are on your soapbox. We say, it’s YOUR soapbox, and if you want to be on it, you go, girl.
    We get on our soapbox anytime we dam well feel like it, and ain’t nobody gonna tell us otherwise. So there!

  39. Masquers
    2:05 pm on December 4th, 2012

    Herbkats: That’s quite a “soapbox” you have there.

  40. Masquers
    2:07 pm on December 4th, 2012

    B: Can you give us some examples? I, for one, can never remember which is which. Perhaps this would make it easier for me to recall.

  41. Barb & Maggie
    2:46 pm on December 4th, 2012

    Herbkats, that is too funny!

  42. B.Stover
    3:00 pm on December 4th, 2012

    Examples: People often use “read” as a noun; i.e. they use the word incorrectly.

    People often disregard apostrophes; e.g. they use thats instead of that’s.

  43. Masquers
    3:38 pm on December 4th, 2012

    B: Thank you, B, that is helpful. Heh. I notice you managed to include your “favorite” misused word in the example.

  44. SnowBella
    3:43 pm on December 4th, 2012

    Patience is not one of my virtues; i.e. I can’t wait to hear about YSAS’ audition.

  45. Masquers
    3:51 pm on December 4th, 2012

    B: Ever since you mentioned your dislike of its use as a noun it is EVERYWHERE. We all cringe when it appears in an article.
    Bella: We are known for our patience, but this kat can’t wait either!

  46. B.Stover
    3:57 pm on December 4th, 2012

    Instead of thinking of i.e as “that is,” it’s probably easier to think of it as “in other words.”

    Another example for e.g. is, My students often misused the apostrophe; e.g. they usually used “its” when they should have used “it’s.”

  47. BearSpiritDog
    4:13 pm on December 4th, 2012

    Rio: A Slim Jim recipe would be a Good thing to have. An endless supply of our Favorite treat. What could be better than that!

  48. Masquers
    4:18 pm on December 4th, 2012

    B: It’s tricky. When I see “ie”, “in example” comes to mind. Seems to me “eg” should mean “in other words”. Now the only way for me to remember is to switch them around. Gah.

  49. Tupper and Gilly
    4:30 pm on December 4th, 2012

    Rio and Bear Spirit Dog – this is just for you (and Siber and Wookie and all the other Slim Jim fanatics out there) You asked for it – you got it!

    DO-IT-YOURSELF SLIM JIMS

    • 1 lamb intestine casing (4 feet long)
    • 2 1/2 pounds top round chuck, cubed
    • 1 pound beef fat, cubed
    • 3 tablespoons paprika
    • 2 teaspoons black pepper
    • 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
    • 1 teaspoon ground fennel seeds
    • 1 teaspoon No. 1 curing salt
    • 4 tablespoons kosher salt
    • 2 teaspoons sugar
    • 1 clove garlic, peeled and smashed
    • 1/3 cup lactic-acid starter culture

    Preparation
    1. Rinse salt off the sausage casing. Soak in ice water for at least 1 hour.
    2. Combine meat and fat. Run the mixture through a meat grinder into a large bowl, using the finest setting. Add all ingredients, along with one cup of ice water. Knead vigorously until mixture is the consistency of bread dough (about 8 minutes).
    3. Rinse casing one last time. Choose the narrowest gauge tube of your sausage press. Splash the tube with ice water, then pull the casing over it. Transfer the mixture, about two fistfuls at a time, to the sausage press and then pump the meat into the casing, splashing more water on the tubing as needed to stop the casing from tearing.
    4. Preheat an electric smoker to 100 degrees. Hang sausage in the smoker for 22 hours. Temperature should never dip below 90 degrees or go above 110 degrees. After 22 hours, raise the temperature to 150 degrees and cook until the internal temperature reaches 150 to 155 degrees (about 30 minutes).
    5. Remove from smoker and let cool at about 50 degrees in a dry place for 4 hours. Cut sausage into 4-inch lengths.

  50. B.Stover
    4:40 pm on December 4th, 2012

    Masquers: Wouldn’t you say “for example” rather than “in example”?

  51. Masquers
    4:52 pm on December 4th, 2012

    B: Saying “in example” only to remember…albeit wrongly.

  52. Melanie
    4:59 pm on December 4th, 2012

    Whew, I can tell that I’m tired. B.Stover’s example just FLEW over my head.

    Both doctor appointments went well.

    YSAS said the audition was fun. He had to be someone who made a mistake and blame it on someone else. I told him he had a lot of practice. Snicker.

    He laughed at me.

    Going to rest for a long time.

    Maskers!…Try this, Example Given (e.g.)…snort!…Or has this already been said…sniff!

  55. BearSpiritDog
    5:03 pm on December 4th, 2012

    Barb&Magpie: What a treat! You wished for something, found it, and had it gift wrapped too. You are having a fabulous run of Good Fortune seems to me.

    Tupper&Gilly: WHOA! That looks like an All-Day production. How many Slim Jims would you say this Gargantuan recipe makes?

  56. Masquers
    5:13 pm on December 4th, 2012

    Riö: “Good example”…”example given”. My head is spinning.

  57. Wose
    5:17 pm on December 4th, 2012

    Herbkats: Love your soap box!

    That is some recipe for Slim Jim’s! Easier just to run down to the nearest gas station.

    CHobbit, I received the furry rose. It is just beautiful!

  58. BearSpiritDog
    5:28 pm on December 4th, 2012

    Orders! I wonder if Wolfie got our order for the Pomegranate Jelly.
    Looks yummy!

  59. B.Stover
    5:30 pm on December 4th, 2012

    I haven’t received the pretzels yet from the Holiday Boutique. Why not?

  60. SnowBella
    5:42 pm on December 4th, 2012

    B: Our Lurker friend has been under the weather, but should be feeling tip top soon enough to get the pretzels in the mail.

  61. Barb & Maggie
    5:45 pm on December 4th, 2012

    Bee, Seems like an easy way to remember whether to use it’s or its would be – If you can replace it with “it is”, then use the ‘. Otherwise write 1ts with no ‘. That is correct, right?

    Also this morning we got a B & N email saying Favorite Reads and Picks. Does it bother you when they use “pick” as a noun or just “read”?

    BSD, Yes, this was our lucky day finding the book so easily. We could have ordered it from B & N, but we like to shop the small book stores when possible.

  62. B.Stover
    6:11 pm on December 4th, 2012

    “Its” is a relative pronoun just as “his” is. I always told my students that because no one uses an apostrophe with “his.”

    I also received that email from B&N. I deleted it as soon as I saw the use of “read” as a noun. I didn’t notice “pick” but that doesn’t bother me. I don’t know why.

  63. Gus and BooBear

    Dad is finished with his intraarterial chemo treatment! 2nd and final done, done, done!!! He is doing well, back in his room and feels fine. They kept him awake this time and he said he could feel the heat in his head when the chemo med was released. Whoa! Think we would rather be asleep. But he’s doing fine. Hoping to get to go home tomorrow. Paws crossed and thanks, guys, for the support and prayers.

    Dinner was great. A take home gluten-free pizza. Yummers.

    Now time to clean the kitchen. Thanks Riö, I’m sure it will make sense in the morning.

    For those of you who love “O Come, Emmanuel” by The Piano Guys.

  65. Barb & Maggie
    6:26 pm on December 4th, 2012

    Bee, I guess we all have words that drive us up the wall. Barb’s is fewer/less. We always hear “less” when they should be using “fewer” and for some reason it drives Barb bonkers! When she was in high school her favorite English teacher told the class if it’s countable in units, then use fewer. Example: fewer snowflakes, less snow; fewer dollars, less money; fewer pounds, less weight, etc. Doesn’t seem like anyone else got that English lesson. What a world we live in!

  66. BearSpiritDog
    6:33 pm on December 4th, 2012

    Melanie: You are having din-din and we are thinking about it. (actually…thoughts of my next meal are never far from my mind)
    What to have, what to have…pondering…how about Grilled Cheese sandwiches and Tomato soup? Yes!
    We can listen to the Piano Guys recording while having our meal.

    Gus&BooBear: Thanks for the update on your dad. Good to hear he is doing well. He will continue to be in our evening prayers.

  67. Princess Sam

    Molly’s Mom and I haven’t heard who got the mug, cups and spoons. Have we missed something?

  68. Masquers
    6:42 pm on December 4th, 2012

    B&M: New words to consider. Brain freeze coming on! (let’s see ie…fewer for big, eg…less for small…or is it the other way around?) mumbling to self…..

  69. Siber-H
    6:43 pm on December 4th, 2012

    Gus&BooBear, Thanks for the update on your dad. We are happy to hear he is doing well and hope he can go home tomorrow.

    Linda, You too, Get well soon. We are sorry to hear you aren’t feeling well.

  70. Wose
    6:45 pm on December 4th, 2012

    G&BB, very happy to hear that your dad is doing well. Yikes! Feeling the heat in your head must be really weird. I know it is not the same, but when I get the lightning bolts, I can feel the anesthesia flow into my vein.

  71. Wose
    6:48 pm on December 4th, 2012

    Linda, hope you are feeling tip top soon. Tuck yourself under the quilt and rest up.

  72. Wose

    Siber-H, have you had a chance to take a look at the husky at Chet’s Friends?

  73. B.Stover
    6:53 pm on December 4th, 2012

    Thank you Rebecca.

    Barb: Your English teacher gave a good explanation.

  74. Siber-H
    6:55 pm on December 4th, 2012

    Yes, I have Rose. ummm What a pretty girl!

    I am having no luck at all in trying to talk mom into making me those homemade slim jims.

  75. Melanie
    6:59 pm on December 4th, 2012

    Gus&BooBear, feel the heat in his head? Wowzer . . I’m glad that all that part of his treatment is over.

    Not sure how long I can stay awake. Feels like 8 pm already . . snicker

    Heard from YSAS about something completely different. A friend of his got him in touch with a baking company that had ordered too much gluten-free flour. He is now carrying home TWENTY-FIVE pounds of flour. He has it in his backpack.

    Going to listen to some Piano Guys.

  76. Melanie
    7:00 pm on December 4th, 2012

    Oh, wait . . Now I remember what I was going to write. Not a thought is staying in my head tonight.

    Bella, may I send the auction books that I have out, or do I wait from word from you?

  77. Barb & Maggie
    7:04 pm on December 4th, 2012

    We are going to pass on the slim jims, although we do appreciate T & G’s efforts. We like jerky, but not slim jims.

    G & B, so happy to hear that your dad has completed his chemo. Makes Barb’s knee surgery seem like a non-event! Prayers and positive thoughts go out to you this evening.

  78. Mollypop's Mom
    7:04 pm on December 4th, 2012

    Siber-H – Add the homemade Slim Jims to the list along with the snow gun for your backyard and the Porsche. BTW, are the stuffed huskies still up on the shelf?

  79. Wose
    7:06 pm on December 4th, 2012

    Siber-H, a very pretty girl, indeed. Forgive my ignorance, is the brown spot in your eye genetic?

  80. Siber-H
    7:27 pm on December 4th, 2012

    You are right, Mollypop’s Mom…I will add the slim jims to the list of things mom is never going to get me. Maybe I should write Santa.
    Yes, the stuffed Huskies are still on the top shelf.
    That is a stupid place for MY Huskies.

    Yes, Wose my one eye that is half brown and half blue does occur in Sibers but not nearly as often as the one blue and one brown eye.

    In the past, our practice has been to wait until payment has been received to inform the individual who donated the item they can ship the item. At this point, I’ve received one electronic payment, yet have word from several that the check is in the mail. I will likely see the first of those checks the end of this week.

    I can’t remember if I posted this last year, but here is a small taste of village life in Alaska. This is one of my favorite videos:

    7:47 pm on December 4th, 2012

    Ummm…we will keep buying our Slim Jims, but thanks anyways T&G.
    G&BB, glad your dad is finished with the final one and feeling good. Paws are crossed that he continues to feel good too!
    LL, get better!
    Bee, the word that drives Mom crazy is when people use “I” instead of “me”. It’s so easy to figure out whether to use “someone and me” or “someone and I”. Just take out the other person and you’ll know which to use. For example, you wouldn’t say that “someone invited I”, so why say “someone invited Dima and I”? We hear people put “I” after “and” all the time, including lots of professional types who ought to know better. We think lots of people were intimidated by teachers always correcting statements such as “Dima and me are going away”, without explaining why that was wrong.
    Melanie, when will YSAS know?

    Check!…Our check is NOT in the mail yet…grunt!….Someone forgot to write it today..sniff!…I will never ever get my Clarkson poster, will I?…grunt!

    Oh no! I forgot to mail my check today. I’ll mail it tomorrow.

    Howlers: The “I” and “me” errors always make me cringe also. It’s interesting to hear the grammatical bete noirs of everyone.

    You are right. The easy way to figure out if it is right is to remove the second person. So instead of saying someone invited Dima and I, just say someone invited I. Doesn’t sound right does it? It is so simple.

    OK, we are going to watch Rizolli and Isles and to say good night from we.

    Now Riö, I talked to your friend and she said that you could wait until YSAS got up here to sign the poster. I don’t trust the NYC postal service. They have lost one of YSAS’s packages already this month.

    OleyHowlers, before Thursday. Seems weird but it’s the trade. Never let them know until they’ve given up.

    Now that I have gotten the keyboard unstuck from my forehead (never fall asleep on your keyboard) Patsy has informed me it’s time to go to BED.

    Thank Dog.

    The Corner of Bitter and Sweet is a very good book. It is the memories of an older man about his youth during WWII. It is a bitter and sweet book. I think Baye might like it. My sister, A Catty Librarian, met Jamie Ford during her library stint in Billings. He lives in Great Falls Montana now.

    Princess Sam: I won the mug and teaspoons.
    Rebecca: I mailed my check in today
    Siber H: I didn’t know I was to wait until the money was in hand so I mailed your package today–but parcel post so it will take a bit to get to New Mexico.
    Oley Howlers, Tyb, Macy-the Min Pin: are your addresses in Dishlickers??? I can’t see them but it could be because I don’t know your real names.
    My computer said this morning that it was -38 (instead of yesterday’s -45). I was so excited but then discovered that the computer was wrong.

    The office where I work ran out of fuel this morning, ordered a delivery and then closed until my shift at started at 3:00. Three hours later with all the heaters going, it is 52. I would like all the heaters to be directed at moi but am trying to be fair to the public. Of course, very few are foolish enough to be out doing errands in this weather. My hands and feet are frozen. Another two hours to go.

    CHobbit!…Can you run around the office to stay warm?…snort!…Tuck your tail and run!run!run! Or do jumping jacks ….wheeze!…Please do not freeze to death.

    CHobbit, I have been in Ellicottville with Molly’s Mom and she has been ill with this gluten stuff. I have been taking care of her. I could have mailed to you right away.

    For two days Molly’s Mom’s stomach would not take food and I only had my dry kibble. This gluten stuff is her problem, not mine. Why should I have to suffer?

    Sammie!…It seems like Mollys Mom is always sick these days…sniff!…How come? Does she eat stuff she is not supposed to…snort!

    Ms. B. Mom just read me your story from your blog and she started to laugh so loud that she couldn’t finish it. But I just didn’t understand why they were running away from the stink. Stink, isn’t that like a smell? Something maybe to roll around in??? Oh well, go figure humans.

    Staff and or Dawson – would you be so good as to check your email please?

    MAma and Dad will be leaving again on Thursday for another edition of the Lovesick Producer’s shows. He is running all of them between now and Christmas, dog help us.

    Tupper!….Where are the two intrepid artists traveling to this weekend? ….snort!….I hope they are coming to my part of town. I still need to find a few gifts…wheeze!

    Rio – would you believe it…the show is in the exact same location as last weekend. Despite everyones’ pleas, the Lovesick Producer set all four shows within a five mile radius. Mama tried to talk to him about finding a location outside of Boston, but he had one reason after another why other locations wouldn’t be good. (we think he’s just scared) He claims that with the huge population of Boston, we could run 20 shows in the same area without overdoing it.
    Pitue -ey

    Radius!…So this means you won’t be coming to my town and settng up your shop where all the FFA and Rodeos and Home and Garden shows happen?…grunt!….Well that just stinks up the place – No Wookie, this does not mean you can roll around over here in my yard…wuffle!

    Rio – we would be glad to come to your town to do a show. Sometime in the summer months, ok? Youse guys get WAAAAYYYY to much snow for these short little Corgi legs.
