We've had 3 inches of rain in the past 3 days. That's more than the total for the previous 5 years COMBINED. No gullywashers, just constant drip. We're all gonna drown!

Default Depicting Authority Over Tea.

It's tea time here. Twinings Earl Grey (hot) with a little sugar and honey as well as a bit of lemon juice and Cran/Raspberry juice.
I was up early and was a bit bored so I made a fasces from some kindling and my hand axe. Of coarse I had to take a photograph.

I posed it on my leather jacket to take the shot,
then I messed with the image and framed it.

I made such a thing many years back before I ever heard of a recipe from others. But, while I shared the idea with others, I don't recall naming it a "Bacon Explosion". What I did and do refer to it as, (since this is a polite forum, I'll refrain from the specifics), has a wee something to do with bodily function...

And, for the record, anyone who won't at least try bacon in ice-cream, (other than for religious reasons), is probably also someone who does not even like dogs. [NO! Not to eat - as pets! - Sheesh] They might even pull the wings off living flies and such.

There you have it. Perspective from a bacon junky.

My arteries are hardening just reading these posts

No John Wayne bars, (before my time), but the MREs are designed specifically to keep you on the line and out of the latrine for weeks on end

I prefer Twinings China Oolong Tea, especially after a spicy homemade Chinese meal.

My grandparents were avid tea drinkers: my maternal grandparents (paternal grandfather came here from Poland via Nottingham, England) drank tea in the English style in a cup and saucer with milk and sugar, while my paternal grandparents drank tea in the Ukranian/Russian style from a glass through a piece of sugar in their teeth.

Ain't that the truth. I had to collect all the little tobasco bottles from guys that didn't use it just to force a BM.. Not pleasant, but highly effective!

Really!?! No Sh*t??!

(Sorry. Seems self-control is a bit off-line this a.m. as I participate in an email political war within a local political party regarding the replacement of a local state senate seat. )

Oolong, the tea that can double as shoe polish

My two faves are Twinnings Gunpowder and Stash Moroccan Mint (both unsweetened). Gunpowder is the tea that taught me to drink it unsweetened; I'd previously dumped in about an equal ratio of tea to sugar. This makes no sense, since gunpowder is a bitter tea. <scratching head>

Heading off to Colorado tomorrow for a week- spending the holiday's with my wife's family..

Thought I'd share my rendition of A Christmas Carol, which I originally penned some years back in WV. I only had to make one modification in to bring it up to Montana standards! Merry Christmas!!

A West Virginia Christmas Carol- The Night Before Christmas
By Threerun

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the hollers,
It was colder than crap, I think I needs me a swaller.
The sweat socks were hung over the woodstove with nails,
They stunk like old cheese, but who really cares.
The kids they was stacked like cordwood in bed,
Three that are mine, four cousin Freds.

Mama and me were passed out in the sack,
We just finished downing a Busch Light 12 pack.
When out in the yard there arose such a clatter,
I grabbed my old rifle to see whats the matter.

Away to the window I ran really fast,
Thinking some varmint had got in my trash.
The moon was a glowing on the snow so darned bright,
I could see plain as day through my scope in the night.

When what to my bloodshot eyes should appear?
But a miniature sleigh, pulled by 8 big horned deer!
A little old man with a beard white as duck,
Crashed on top of the barn and got his ass stuck.

He cursed at those deer, and grabbed an old whip,
He was fixin'to teach those eight bucks real quick!
“Now Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen!
You too Comet and Cupid, Donner and Blitzen!
Land on the house not the barn!!” He was bitchin!

Then the old man pulled the reins hard and tight,
And the bucks pulled the sleigh off the barn with a might.
Then on top off my house they crashed with a BANG!
They tore off my gutters, gosh darn-it all dang!

I flew down the stairs to check on the site,
When that fat little fellow came down the stovepipe.
He had a que*r little outfit, and looked like an elf,
"Must be from Missoula" I said to myself.

He had a big heavy sack slung over his back,
A winters worth of vittles must be stuffed in that pack!
His eye's kinda twinkled and he had dimples how merry!
His cheeks were all rosy…. he must be a Fairy!

He was smokin' a pipe and was taking a toke,
It smelled sorta funny, like wacky old dope.
He had a really round face, his eyes sorta scrunched,
He kept rootin' around looking for something to munch.

I sensed he’s a stoner, a dope head, a waste..
And I figured this fools trying to rob my 'ol place!
I thought to myself " I oughta just blast him!",
So I shouted "HEY FATSO- DONT YOU KNOW YER TRESPASSIN?!!"

He turned round to see me, and reached for his sack
I got off the first round and just grazed his fat back!
His eyes got real big, I thought he was froze,
Then all of a sudden up the stovepipe he rose!

He was cursing and shouting to his deer on the run,
"This crazy old coot is firing a gun!"
He jumped in his sleigh and kept his head down,
I couldn't sight in that big old fat clown.

But his bucks were wide open and the moon was still bright,
And I caught the lead deer in my scope with that light;
I took a deep breath and let one round fly,
Dasher got smashed, he's gonna diel

The sled then slowed down, dead weight it was liftin',
So I got a shot off on Donner and Blitzen.
“Three bucks did I shoot!” I exclaimed with a might
“Merry Christmas to all! We got venison tonight!”
