Hercules: Great Name, Great Member of the Nation Within

“Believe in karma?” Spence says.

“Nope,” says Admin.

“Not even a little bit?”

“Not even a smidgen.”

“Maybe this will change your mind. This couple rescued a dog who was facing a grim future and very quickly had their reward.”

“There’s anecdote,” says Admin. “And then there’s proof.”

Today at New England Crime Bake: Spence is on a panel, but the conference is sold out so forget about this.

    Good Saturday Morning All:

    The Prof and I are off to do some Christmas shopping at the mall. Thankfully, we do not have many gifts to get.

    Hercules, that is some dog!

    (singing) Hercules,
    softness in eyes
    iron in his thighs
    virtue in his heart
    fire in every part
    of the mighty
    Hercules

    Good luck, Spence!

    Good on ya, Hercules! (Can you tell I’m thinking of LizF this morning?)
    G’day Liz and everyone.
    I have had a lesson on how to make oatmeal, Dad’s way. Who knew there were so many steps?
    Staff and I are off to a class on how to freeze water. Heh. Should be interesting.

    Well, we made it through the storm with only a 8 hour loss of power beginning around 5 pm last night. On Bear’s list of preparations should have been a reminder to replace the flashlight batteries. Mom was trying to read, but her flashlight started dimming out and she had to turn it off. At one point we woke up to the sound of thundering rain. Then, this morning, saw the remnants of hail on the patio chairs & wooden deck, along with the last minutes of the night’s still full moon, halo-like, hanging in the western sky.

    11:33 am on November 12th, 2011

    Rose: Aren’t you the smart one…doing your shopping early. Happy gift hunting. (p.s. that is a very nice tribute to Hercules)

    Whew! It appears I got my order off to Rio’s friend just in the nick of time.

    We have seen Wolfie checking in, albeit with few words, but where oh where is Liz? If you are reading this, Liz, I hope you and Cricket are well and everything is A-okay in your part of the world. The Plunderers think of you often.
    Treats coming in the mail. Oh, Boy!

    12:28 pm on November 12th, 2011

    Franklin: Thank you again for your assistance with the generator. It was needed in the late afternoon hours to assist with the bearessentials (heh) of power. We will ask Wolfie to blurr it back your way later this morning.

  16. Barb & Maggie
    1:07 pm on November 12th, 2011

    Did Wolfie check in after we signed off last night?
    Glad you are ok Bear.

    Dawson, we just saw a rating on oatmeal, and Trader Joe’s was rated the best. We are going to get some and try it.

    Heat went out at 4:00, so we had to call the furnace guy first thing this morning. Now it is toasty again. Feel a nap coming on.

  17. B.Stover
    1:11 pm on November 12th, 2011

    Dad’s Hot Cereal
    Bring to boil 1.5 cups of filtered water, 1/4 tsp. salt and 1/2 handful of raisins (approx. 1/4 cup)
    Put salt container back exactly where you found it.
    Put raisins back exactly where you found them.
    Measure .25 cup of oatmeal and .25 cup of 10 grain cereal.
    Put both cereal containers back exactly where you found them.
    Add cereals to boiling water.
    Turn flame to very low.
    Cover.
    While it is cooking, put hot water in your cereal bowl to preheat.
    Put two thicknesses of paper towel on stove to put the bowl on.
    Dump the hot water out of the bowl.
    Put the bowl on the paper towels.
    After 2.5 (approx) minutes, take cover off and stir until you can feel the cereal is thick enough.
    When it is thick enough, turn the flame off, put the cover back on and wait for the alarm.
    When the alarm goes off, push the button to silence it.
    Stir 1 Tbsp. butter into the hot oatmeal until it is all melted.
    Pour the hot cereal into the bowl and move it to the table.
    Serve with 1/2 and 1/2 cream.
    All measurements must be exact, except the raisins.

    Barb&Magpie: Wolfie wished us a good morning yesterday at 10:10, and also mentioned earlier in the week his mom has been busy with the jars of pomegranate jelly for the MMCS.
    Thank dog your furnace is back on!

    Melanie: I typically go to Anchorage 3-4 times a week, but I think Rio’s friend and I will have to make a point to do a group photo during our pug friend’s trip north to Alaska. I believe his friend will have to be in disguise to remain incognito.

    Rio: It was not too long ago that you were worried that your friend’s cards wouldn’t sell. We all knew better…

    Anyone get the feeling that Wolfie has been busy helping his mom make the jelly to pay off his credit card debit? That’s a lot of jelly…of course, it was a lot of beer.

    Grump!… sniff!… We had company earlier. They brought all kinds of crap with them and they brought another guy like me only he is jet black…grunt!… After much excitement and lots of chatter the company left….snort!… But get this, they left all the crap they had brought with them and they left the pug!!! …grumble!….So when is he leaving? That’s all I want to know right now….When is HE LEAVING?….wheeze!

    Dawson: lol. Thanks for sharing your dad’s oatmeal recipe (could you also send it to Dishlickers when you have a chance so it can be added to the cookbook?) However, we are not familiar with the 10 grain cereal – is it in a oatmeal type consistency? What is the brand name?

    At our house, for a quick and easy breakfast on a cold winter’s morning, Bear recommends Three Bear’s Hot Porridge: Add a half cup of oats to 1 cup of boiling water with a dash salt…return to a boil…cover for five minutes…stir, add a pat of butter, top with cinnamon, brown sugar & roasted pecans. Add cream and enjoy!

    Hello everybody,

    We have been too busy to post anything on the blog. We are training the Pipsqueak. Well, mostly Meashka and Sasha are training her. They have shown her the entire perimeter of the property and Kat is very confident that she knows all the good places to go and be safe.

    We finally read Melanie’s essay for the Living Legend award. That was beautiful! and we are all choked up too.

    Bear, glad you survived that terrible storm. We still don’t have our generator but after reading about others’ power outages, we want one for sure.

    Here is a picture of Kat getting instructions from her Tutor.

  28. Snowhook Bella
    4:24 pm on November 12th, 2011

    Howlers: I can just hear Kat’s tutor now: “Take my advice. I’m not using it.”

  29. BearSpiritDog
    5:00 pm on November 12th, 2011

    Gah. Nana says Bear left out an important step in the process: turn off the heat after returning to a boil… cover and wait 5 minutes. (guess what we had for brunch)

    O.Howlers: That is a beautiful picture.

  30. Barb & Maggie
    5:06 pm on November 12th, 2011

    Is that 10 grain cereal another cooked cereal like Malt-O-Meal? Loved your recipe, Dawson. Must be given with Dad standing behind you or in the same room at least!

    We received our Dream Catcher also. It is beautiful. Ben is going to to so thrilled! Barb can’t wait for Christmas, so she is going to take it with her on Monday when she meets up with Kelly in Rockford. That way she can really study it without the craziness of Christmas morning gift opening.

    Rio, Are you having fun with your little visitor?

  31. Riö - The Evil Pug
    5:22 pm on November 12th, 2011

    Barb!…He is still here! I am not having any fun. I’m too busy guarding all my stuff..…grunt!… She even fed him!….yeep!… His stack of stuffed animal toys would make SiberH drool…wheeze!

    Busy!…Someone here has been busy shopping and buying stuff. But what she really wants and needs to do is work on her little gift cards….snort!… This visitor is messing up the whole Saturday so far…grump!

    Supper!…Because of this guy every one skipped lunch for some reason so now she has been tasked with making supper early tonight….grunt!… Baked chicken and yadda yadda…sniff!… Does anyone know that Helmans mayonnaise recipe for coating chicken???…wuffle!…She just needs to google it perhaps….heh!

  32. BearSpiritDog
    5:48 pm on November 12th, 2011

    Rio: Have you overhead any mention of how long your guest will be there?
    What with Dawson’s dad’s Hot Cereal recipe and your mention of a chicken supper we are now very hungry.

    Bear!… I have not over-heard a date yet…sniff!…That’s the good thing though, these visiters she agrees to “watch” always leave at some point…chuffle!… I just don’t know where the guy is going to sleep tonight because no way is he sleeping in my bed or on the big bed…grump!…Maybe he will sleep with her mother because her mother seems to really like him…sniff!…She is being way nice to him. Way nicer than she ever has been to me…wuffle! …I don’t like that at all..sneeze! …I’m not letting him near my friend….growl!…He can just go sit in the corner for all I care…sniff!

    Hi guys,
    I am answering for Dawson.

    It is Bob’s Red Mill 10 Grain Cereal. We get it at the Linden Hills Co-op.

  36. Sam
    6:12 pm on November 12th, 2011

    Rio, how nice that you have a little brother. Does he have good toys? Can you both play and share?

  37. Barb & Maggie
    6:14 pm on November 12th, 2011

    We would be interested in the mayo chicken recipe too. Do you roll in crumbs after dipping in the mayo?

  38. Buddy
    6:16 pm on November 12th, 2011

    Bella, you cracked me up…Take my advice. I’m not using it. Hah!

    Rio, if you are very nice to your visitor, maybe you can con him out of some of his toys.

  39. Alice
    6:18 pm on November 12th, 2011

    And also it is very true that they do these things with Dad standing by or sitting at the kitchen table telling then every step over and over just in case. Sniff.

    I like him because he gives me lots of treats whenever he goes upstairs to his preferred bathroom. We go in together and I get up on the counter and he says “Hel-lo Alice” and gives me a treat. Yum.

  40. Barb & Maggie
    6:19 pm on November 12th, 2011

    Dawson, Are you staying in the twin cities thru Thanks Giving? Staff, are you going to winter there again?

    Barb just went out and picked arugula again to add to her salad. That stuff loves the cold weather. 26 degrees the other night, and the stuff is still going strong. Michele O had a good idea when she suggested growing it. Very dark green, so it’s got to have lots of vitamins.

  41. Riö - The Evil Pug
    6:29 pm on November 12th, 2011

    Toys!….This guy has Toys out the ying-yang…grunt!… My friend had to stuff them into his fancy crate thing (it has a designer cover.)…sniff!… His dish bowls are so nice and expensive that those two are talking about using them …heh!… The treats they brought him are top-of-the-line. I should know, I’ve had quite a few. Being grumpy today is paying off in some ways…heh!… And apparently he has “Papers”…. grump!

  42. Riö - The Evil Pug
    6:34 pm on November 12th, 2011

    Sammie!… He is no brother of mine…grunt!.. He comes from some breeder in Memphis, Tennessee….snort!… He’s only lived in Colorado for about two years. I bet he doesn’t even know who the Rockies are…grumble!

    Name!…He goes by Bo…sniff! …His full name is Mr. BoJangles….wheeze!…Isn’t that a song?…grunt!…Wookie would know. Oh, how I wish Wookie and SiberH would come by and get me and take me away from this nightmare….sneeze!

  43. Siber-H
    7:38 pm on November 12th, 2011

    It’s a song written by Jerry Jeff Walker. There is mention of a dog in it.

    It has been recorded by many artists and the dog appears to have lived a long life, but Mr. Bojangles still grieves for him after 20 years.

  44. Siber-H
    7:39 pm on November 12th, 2011

    Rio, You are going to have to share your Zingers with Mr. BoJangles. GAH

  45. Rose
    7:44 pm on November 12th, 2011

    Masquers: I am glad that you are safe and sound.

    Actually, the Prof and I are very late with Christmas shopping. Usually, we are done by Labor Day, and then I have to wait until December to start wrapping gifts. (my favorite part!)

    My tribute to Hercules is part of the theme song from a children’s cartoon from the sixties that I used to watch.

  46. Rose
    7:49 pm on November 12th, 2011

    Masquers: Maybe you should get your mom and Itty Bitty Book Light for your mom.

    SiberH: I was admiring Jingle today at Hallmark. I wish they should him separately….(sigh)

  47. Riö - The Evil Pug
    8:06 pm on November 12th, 2011

    Zingers!….If her mother gives Missssta BoJangles part of her Zinger at coffee break time tomorrow….grunt!…I quit! I’m outta here!…snort!

  48. Melanie
    8:18 pm on November 12th, 2011

    I bet by the time I’ve written this we’re already on the dark side.

    Okay, Dawson: Zoe wouldn’t even let me finish the recipe! She was laughing too hard.

    Rio: The Pack feels your pain.

    Bella: Take my advice . . . That’s a gem. That could be written for teenage boys. As Zoe put it earlier, thank Dog there’s no teenagers in the family right now.

    A disguise for Rio’s friend. Hmmm. Pondering.

    Had a great time today. Turns out that “Shape Note Singing” is “Sacred Harp Singing”.
    My sister used to be a member of a group and was having a fine time singing. I had no idea what the note shapes meant, but near the end was figuring parts of it out. When they finally did a slower song as I was able to join in. Comes from Appalachian singing in the early years of our country. Most people couldn’t read music so the shaped notes told them what to do. The harmonies are unreal. About 100 people singing. Very nice.

    Lunch was also great. Eggs Benedict made for gluten free people!

    To bed now. . . It’s nice to know that we have nine dogs the size of Hercules that live with us.

    Mailings!….She told me to tell you guys that she did not get the 3 initial orders of Little Gift Boxes in the mail today as she had hoped to do…grunt!…That Visitor has really messed up the timing of everything if you ask me…sniff!….She did however get the boxes she needs to mail them in, so that is half the battle. Apparently she can mail them from the busy-place if she wants to. It just seems like she always gets ripped off in mailing costs when she goes through the busy place mail-room though…grunt!… It’s a dilemma for sure.

  50. Siber-H
    8:20 pm on November 12th, 2011

    Me too, Rose…I don’t need the book..It will be for kids and too cutesy for a dog that reads SQ’s books.

  51. Masquers
    8:27 pm on November 12th, 2011

    Rose: A book light! That would be a puuuurfect gift for mom.(funny last night she was mumbling something about wishing she had a miner’s light)
    Sounds like trouble in the morning at Rio’s house.
    Good night everyone.

    Announcement: Snowhook’s fiercest checkpoint will be the Takotna checkpoint thanks to the anonymous donor who sponsored the checkpoint in memory of Mollypop. The Takotna checkpoint is known for its hospitality and pies. Many mushers opt to take their mandatory 24 hour layover at Takotna because of the comforts it provides. AJ took his 24 there last year.

    8:35 pm on November 12th, 2011

    Melanie and Staff: I can’t take credit for the ‘Take my advice…’ line. My three bosses and I overheard at a conference a couple of years ago, and one of my bosses pointed out that part of being a good facilitator or consultant is knowing what lines to steal and when to use them.

    Wookie: It sounds like you might need to gas up the Wookiemobile for rescue mission for Rio. Belle Starr says she’ll chip in for gas money which means I’ll be chipping in for gas money.

    B. Stover: I recieved and email that the puzzles are in production and will ship next week. I opted to have the puzzles shipped directly from the vendor.

    8:46 pm on November 12th, 2011

    Hi, guys! We received our bear fetish that we purchased in the MMCS!! It is totally awesome (as we knew it would be) and are very excited to have it watching over our house. And Mom went to the post office and mailed our items to the people who purchased them. The guy at the post office said they should be delivered on Monday! Wow, that’s fast since we mailed them this afternoon. We say don’t look for them until Tuesday.

    Rio, do you know FOR SURE that the person who dropped off Bo is coming back? Many sneaky people pretend to be just going off for a little while and then…BAM…they never come back. You may have a little brother, after all.

    Melanie, we read AJ’s story yesterday and don’t remember if we told you how great it is. Be sure to give us the heads up when we need to start voting. It goes without saying that it will be one of the finalists.

    Time for supper. Bear Creek Darn Good Chili with our own added ingredients. Very tasty! A loaf of sourdough bread hot from the oven. Add a nice tossed green salad and glass of wine. What could be better on a rainy Saturday evening.
    After that we will catch up on the last episode of Once Upon a Time. Bear

  57. Snowhook Bella
    8:55 pm on November 12th, 2011

    BearSpiritDog: You are making me hungry. The sourdough bread hot from the oven sounds delish!

    Rio: Junior is quite the ladies dog. After returning from today’s run—a run that didn’t happen because the dog truck and trailer got stuck twice—instead of going to his house he went and visited the females from the Little Women litter. He visits his girlfriends every chance he gets. There is a lot of tailwag flirting happening.

    Staff has her headphones on and is jiggling around on her chair. She sometimes makes strange sounds.
    She is listening to American Routes on Minnesota Public Radio. It is Rock and Roll from the 60’s. The “Wall of Sound” from Phil Spector. She is having much too good a time.
    Thank goodness I can’t hear her….

    9:17 pm on November 12th, 2011

    Hey everyone – quick check in after a very busy day. So glad to hear that packages have been arriving safely – no Marauding Goats. Siber – poor puppy – sounds like you have to wait til Monday, but never fear – patience will be your reward.

    Dawson – love the oatmeal recipe. Our Dad and our Gramp don’t ever mess with Mama when she’s cooking. They are both as terrified of getting lost in the kitchen as if it was a Greek mythological labyrinth – complete with minataur. But then once dinner is served, Gramp starts with – “well, what would happen if”…and starts making recipe suggestions. And most of them make about as much sense as adding a marshmellow to a glass of champagne. sigh….

    Glad Melanie had a fun day.
    Glad to hear about the Snowhook rest stop.
    Sorry to hear that Rio has to share the spotlight with an interloper.
    And right now, we are glad to hear Mama say its bedtime.
    G’night all

    Barb and Maggie: I am staying at the parent’s house until the end of November so I will be here for Thanksgiving. Staff and Mr. Staff have stayed here every winter for years because they have jobs here from about January 1st to April 15th.
    Bonus question: Which Plunderers birthday is April 15th?

    Dawson told me the answer Rio….heh. She says she doesn’t know what the bonus is yet.

  68. AbbietheKitty
    9:55 pm on November 12th, 2011

    I don’t think it would be fair for me to pick anyone though, since I was told the answer……Someone else can get the ‘bonus’.

    10:12 pm on November 12th, 2011

    Oh!
    Did I forget to say that my family members…including Kats…and pugs of any color are not eligible for the bonus?
    Natasha: Is Melanie’s birthday really the 14th of April? Anyway…it is not the 15th.

  70. Snowhook Bella

    Time’s up!
    It’s Rio’s birthday on April 15th but he is grumpy because he is not eligible for a bonus…AND because he has a visitor who is probably trying to get into his nice soft bed right about now.
    Good night all.

    Rio: I don’t know about getting the quilt. We don’t know the torture and teasing and the untold amount of zingers withheld that Dawson had to endure due to her little sister status. She may have well earned that beautiful dance of purple. Perhaps Dawson has an honorable mention prize for you knowing your birthday. :)

    We just watched the most remarkable movie, “Dean Spanley”, in which the dean recalls his previous life as a dog. It was heartwarming, sad, joyous, and intriguing. Sam Niell was the Dean/dog and Peter O’tool was his master.

    oops, Sam Neill.

    Macy that movie sounds very interesting. I have never heard of it. I have liked Sam Neill since he was in Reilly, Ace of Spies on PBS. And Peter O’Toole of course.

    The music from Reilly Ace of Spies is the Romance movement from Dmitri Shostakovich’s The Gadfly Suite. I love it.
