Preheat oven to 425. Boil, mash and sieve enough Winter Squash to have a cup.
Mix with a cup of applesauce (the thicker the better, preferably homemade with a tart variety)
Mix in half a teaspoon salt, a cup of light brown sugar a teaspoon of cinnamon and of ginger, half a teaspoon of mace and a quarter of cloves
Lightly beat 4 eggs, add a cup and a half of heavy cream into it. Add that to your squash mix, then pour it into an unbaked 10 inch pie shell.
Bake it for 20 minutes, reduce the heat to 350 and bake another 20 minutes or so. Do the knife test to insure it's done. If you don't know what that is, ask your Mom.
Put the pie in the fridge.
Three Hours before Dinner
Mix in a paper sack half a cup of flour, three-quarters teaspoon of salt and one quarter-teaspoon of pepper. Dredge two pounds of cubed stew beef. Pour about 6 tablespoons of oil in a heavy skillet and brown the meat. Place in a Dutch Oven.
Chop up 5 onions and finely chop 2 cloves of garlic. Saute until right before the onions start to brown. Add it to the Dutch oven.
Now we need a cup and a quarter of beer. It can be any kind but I use something with a deep amber color to it. This adds up to about a can and a half, finish the rest of the second can, you're going to need it.
If you'll remember our first interaction was with all guns blazing - among other things I disagree with your level of fear concerning Islam. I don't find it to be the Evil you and others portray it to be. Yet I also think that when you mention various passages which actually exist in the Qur'an you're not defaming the book despite what one docent who hasn't even read the book claims. Just as all the hateful passages concerning YHVH's law in the Old Testament and Paul's malicious hate in the New Testament aren't "defamatory"
You probably should've just dropped the subject, especially with there being a half-assed attempt to keep it local.
I disagreed with many of your arguments and was even offended by some of the passages but I feel almost from the beginning "they" had it in for you - Much like with Jeff Brigham certain people didn't want you around and by God that was going to be the goal. When discussing things such as "social contract" and "courtesy rules for dialogue" I've felt a different standard was being enforced against you. To be fair I've thought that you didn't help much on your end but I understood your frustration over variances in the standards.
I know where your other website is and I'll check in from time to time.

I'll never forget how Sound to Harbor Head Start/ECEAP nearly lost a grant that allowed more children to be taken into the program because the illegal street-blockers jeopardized the paperwork being delivered on time.
Let's see, bongo drums at the intersection of Cooper Point and Black Lake, or children (and their families) below the poverty line getting food, education and health services - it's not a tough choice to make at all.

Man, that is one traumatic, nearly delayed papers delivery!

One of our exercises made me think of how we've been trying to stay productive, constructive and positive in our communications and dialogue here. The game is called Yes, And. Two volunteers start - they are given a location by someone in the audience. One participant takes the initiative and starts talking. The other player responds "Yes, and...", continuing the train of thought. The first player continues "Yes, and..." and it keeps on going until either it's played its course or the instructor moves it along.
Tammy and I were together for one; someone suggested a hair salon for our location. Tammy said the first line:
T: Okay sir, have a seat and we'll get started. First we need to shampoo your hair.
M: Yes, and be sure to use the Industrial Shampoo, this is my first shower all year!
T:Yesss, and I'll just put these gloves on first. [Her change in tone was allowable, she still said the obligatory "Yes, and..."]
M: Yes, and you'll want to be gentle, my hair's been falling out by the handful these past few months.
T: Yes, and I think I'll get the broom ready before we start.
M: Yes, and you'll want a big wastebin.
Now of course in an Improv setting it's going to get silly, perhaps exaggerated, but when the instructor explained that the purpose of "Yes, and..." was for affirmation and moving it along I realized it could be sound advice for Olyblog.
In anticipation of the response I'm sure to get, let me say: If you disagree with me, then I wasn't talking to you.
Also, if you don't like that I'm willing to speak up concerning my grievances - if you can't stand that my thoughts don't completely jibe with yours - Let it Go.
[Edit: While I feel my harshness was appropriate and necessary I have no desire to crucify, tar and feather, or burn anyone at the stake. Enpen and Rob R. are both nice guys who love their kids. I haven't met bert but too many people I trust vouch for his gentle nature.]
Saw an old buddy at the Broho Saturday Night and when I briefly mentioned Olyblog his Witty Chucks caused him to boisterously ask "What's with Olyblog anyway?" while a gang of Olybloggers was sitting right next to us(he has an Olyblog account but is only an occasional lurker since he lives in Seattle now.)
I've been an early morning person the past few months, even on the weekends. But I haven't recovered yet from losting that hour this weekend.
I can understand everything except the final part. Why should the books become property of the facility when the individual's released? Is it to help pay for room and board?
In March of 1998 a unidentified body was found on Sheldon Rd in Thurston County. (I have not been able to find where Sheldon Rd is, the linked sites don't have other information on the location.)
The victim is estimated to have been born anywheres from 1970 to 1978, meaning he would have been either in his early or late twenties when found.
A new artist's rendition has been created. Artist renditions are an inexact science and should not be assumed to be the flawless likeness of the John Doe.
This is not the only John Doe in Thurston County.
Three people have been arrested in connection with the Feb. 14 Ded Prez riot at Evergreen. Two more arrest warrants have yet to be served. According to The Olympian Breaking News four out of five warrants were for TESC students, with the first arrest being at student housing this morning at 7:00.
Call 867-KAOS during your favorite show - or during some other show you feel deserves a nod of recognition - or during one of the late night shows since those programmers often feel left out of the love.
We should have an Olyblog Poetry Slam. Somebody set it up and make it happen.
