    Default Which came first?

    Well, today it was the chicken, leftover fried wings from yesterday.
    A couple hours later, I made a jumbo double yolker, lightly basted.
    Someone once told me that every day you should think of at lest one
    thing you're thankful for. Today, I am thankful that cows are
    mammals. If they were not, they wouldn't lactate, and that would be
    sad. No Gouda.

    I am thankful that I have cooked some kidney beans and I can have them for
    dinner. But currently that's about it. I could write a novel about the
    stuff that is currently making me cranky. But instead, I am going to go put
    on something flannel and go hide under the covers with my cats and try to
    sleep. If only my house would stop vibrating! I don't know what sort of
    construction tool they are using next door but it isn't pleasant.

    I love dark red kidney beans cooked melt-in-your-mouth tender.

    I should make some soon and that can be my one thing for that day.

    lol

    98% of the houses in a mile of me have new roofs... From dawn till dusk:
    pounding, hammering, nail gun noises... Who says Mexicans are lazy? They
    are the hardest working people I have ever seen. They were up there on
    roofs working when it was 105!

    Stuff made from soybeans is no substitute for stuff made from bovines.

    Waste a whole day...

    http://www.goya.com/english/product_...s/Canned-Beans
    Most Stupidmarkets carry several size cans including #10, larger cans
    offer larger price savings. Several years ago it cost less to cook
    dried beans but no longer. For some certain large recipes dried beans
    work a bit better but those recipes are few and the better is
    infintesimal. For smaller quantities canned are always best and
    always cost less, especially when one considers their time and the
    price of energy. I've found all the different brands equally good. I
    like the 40oz size for larger recipes because they are easy to store
    and are a handy inbetween size. But I buy all and every size whenever
    I find them on sale. I have a rather extensive collection of canned
    beans in my larder, besides my kitchen pantry I have lots of shelves
    in my basement. I tend to buy Goya as I like their pull tab cans.

    You should find some way to harness that vibration for pleasure and
    maybe you won't be so cranky.

    And the things that you don't like or that your daughter won't eat. But
    you won't. You will write about it here.

    It is not unusual for having a lot of houses in an area getting new
    roofs at the same time. Shingles have a limited life and when a piece
    of land is developed and a bunch of houses are built over a year or two,
    they roofs all need replacing about the same time. People see their
    neighbours getting new roofs and realize that theirs are due for it to.
    It happened in my brother's neighbourhood. Those houses were built about
    15 years ago and last summer close to half of them got new roofs. There
    is another neighbourhood about a mile down the road form me that saw its
    roofs expiring this year, so the roofers have been pretty busy.

    We don't have many Mexicans here, other than migrant farm workers.
    Roofers are a unique breed. It is a good thing to keep your blinds drawn
    and let them have the impression that your house is well protected. A
    surprisingly high percentage of homes that have had new roofs end up
    getting broken into within a moth or two after the job is complete.

    Thanks for the advice. There was a hellacious hail storm here few months
    back. Most people seem to be getting the dimensional shingles, and I notice
    almost no one has old broadcast TV antennas on their roofs anymore. Mine
    tried to commit suicide couple nights ago. Came part way off the chimney
    and plunked on the roof.

    Are people often jealous of you because you have such an interesting
    life?
