I roast veggies. Carrots, turnip, onion, eggplant, garlic. Delish.

Everything tastes better with Feta.
I was exaggerating a smidge....

I actually like grilled veggies basted in Greek or Italian salad dressing, usually skewered with marinated chunks of pork, beef, chicken or lamb.

In other words, as part of a kabob. I also like corn, asparagus, cauliflower, brussels sprouts crowns (gag me on the stems!) and carrots. Love onions, mushrooms, tomatoes and garlic, if they count.

I'm a big feta fan too. I love a nice sliced/diced tomato & English cucumber with chunks of feta, drizzled with Greek dressing and ground pepper.

The Tomatoes we can, we could sell for ten bucks a quart.{NO REALLY} But I value them way above that price and drink every one, I don't share canned tomatoes or homemade pickles.


People who drink the Tomatoes we can will pay anything to get them.
My son is going to can some of his tomatoes this year for the first time. I hope they turn out well. Then I can pick his brain. If they don't, maybe we'll both pick yours.

I honest-to-Godfrey Daniel consider myself a connoisseur of dill pickles. My paternal grandmother made the best pickles ever. I've spent 60+years seeking their equal. I've never tried making them but I sample every brand I ever come across, including many from farmers' markets. The very best ever commercially-available dill pickle I have tasted in 60+ years of sampling are Nathan's New York Style Sour Dills.

Nathan's Half-Sours are very nearly as good.

If they just say Nathan's New York Style Kosher Dills -- avoid them like the plague. Unless you like cucumbers dipped in water.

If they don't say "Sour" or "Half-Sour" don't buy them.

And the store near-ish me that carried them, no longer does!

Sadly, most taste like cardboard dipped in water, only chewier and more bland.
Try more veggies out in the firld. some of my favories are asparagus, okra, Brussels sprouts and snap peas. Ooooh, almost fergot corn.

make them I purchased a crock and easy-peasy. cukes, kosher salt and water and time. make sure you keep water in the rim to avoid bacteria, and the best part is listening to the gas burp and escape.
We blame the dog anyway.

Anyone can come see Hannibal and Hannibal will treat them to a funded vacation set up in condos where the peas shall be brought out, but you would only have a taste of my tomatoes.


Once you seal a quart of the right tomatoes, it takes 3 years before you can even open them.


If I sent you a quart and had you put them in a blender, you would be all like,'' Hannibal, I will pay 30 bucks for another quart.''


Really, but yeah, come to me, I will give you rest.


Yeah, sorry I have to do this to you, surrender.


Don't watch this if you don't want to belong to me.


You will think it is funny, but this aint no game.


Brb, got to start a fire and cut my hair.

So far no one has offered any intelligent reason as to why I should change that mindset. Maybe you can do so.

You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.

You see, 'your neighbor' is a male. You will also see that the male's house, his wife, his cattle, etc. belongs to the neighbor. Would you see this as being the ideal arrangement for today ...that a man owns his wife? THAT is your Bible-approved relationship between a man and a woman.

And, of course male/male relationships would be frowned on in those times because one of the males would be seen to be playing the subordinate role, i.e. the role of a female or a piece of property. Female/female relationships? One female being seen to 'own' the other? I have no idea how that would work.

It's all about ownership, Jeff. You need to get this fact clear in your mind.

What you say above sounds more like a reading from a Barbara Cartland romance novel than a reading from the Bible!

Have you actually read the Bible, Jeff?

Satan, the boogie-man for adults. Do intelligent people still actually believe in the Devil ...?

There is no such thing as 'sin'. That's just an outdated religious word. If we rather use the more useful terms such as 'right' and 'wrong' then there is nothing wrong in two adult people being mutually sexually attracted to one another and even choosing to commit themselves to a life-long relationship.

So, no 'sin' there at all.

'Sin' is such a silly word that I find it hard to believe - and somewhat embarrassing - that intelligent people still use that term to target others ...particularly since that biblical term equally applies to them!

Wow what an amazing perversion of the Christian faith. Your beliefs have NOTHING absolutely NOTHING in common with Christianity. Mocking me for believing in Satan? You have NO IDEA what is going on. I sincerely hope NO ONE believes your extremely false and dangerous teachings. People will go to hell believing your perversion of the gospel.
