Hurtin

I’ve still got 2 full days left on that darn mansion. Monday I have to race against the clock to finish the inside downstairs. Mrs. Rich Lady’s constraint that all contractors be out and gone by 4pm has really thrown me off. Window cleaning goes from dawn to dusk, and by leaving at 4pm I lose at least 2 1/2 good hours of daylight each day at this time of the year. Even though I’m showing up at the job before then, you really can’t get much done before 8am; it’s pointless trying to clean glass before the sun is up enough to burn off the morning dew. So what should have been a 4 day job has turned into a 6 or 7 day job. Cleaning the exterior lamps and gutters won’t be so bad, but I HAVE to get the insides done tomorrow. Period.

So I was up at Oh God early today, and went and did my regular Sunday cleaning job. Well, the morning part. Then I got up to the bowling alley and prebowled, since there is no way I’ll be able to get to league tomorrow night on time. What with sore muscles, and that slowly healing gash on my thumb, I did poorly. My swing is good, and I’m getting a lot of rev on the ball, but even with a free arm swing the ball is going way too fast. So I need to reinvent the wheel and shorten my approach, so that I take little slow steps ... which means I have to get in quite a bit of practice to recoordinate my timing to the new slower approach. I’m not there at all yet, so I was about 20 points down each game. Sorry.

Ok, another few minutes rest, then time to drive 35 miles to do my afternoon Sunday cleaning job. And then a bunch of laundry. And I’d better get some groceries so I can eat next week.



So, are you sick to death of seeing Fearless Reader on your TV every single day on every news show? It’s barely begun. All the guy knows how to do is campaign, so he’s at it again. Sorry BH, but I don’t want your plan, and that’s not going to change whether you’ve talked it up 30 times or 32 times. It’s wrong, and you’re a commie. So go away.

President Obama blanketed the airwaves Sunday in a bid to sell his health care plan to the American people and put pressure on Congress to pass comprehensive reform legislation in the coming weeks.

As part of the blitz, the president was appearing on the ABC, CBS, NBC and CNN talk and public affairs Sunday shows, and on the Hispanic network Univision.

Obama also is visiting David Letterman on Monday, the first appearance ever by a sitting president on Letterman’s “Late Show.”

...

Critics have raised concerns about the mandate, though, and Obama was pressed on whether it is tantamount to the kind of tax increase he pledged to avoid during the campaign.

“That’s not true. ... My critics say everything’s a tax increase. My critics say that I’m taking over every sector of the economy,” Obama said. “I absolutely reject that notion.”

Yo, holmes, be real. This boondoggle is going to cost a fortune. Where else is the money going to come from? You’ve already borrowed all the money in China. Taxes are all that’s left. We’re not buying it.




Does Hollywood Stupid count as moonbattery? Jessica Simpson’s little foo-foo dog, a “malti-poo”, was snatched by a coyote. She saw it happen. So she’s offering a reward. On the internet. Because, sure, everyone knows coyotes have broadband, right? Acme® ISP, yes? Poor doggy, but ... sheesh.



Penzeys Spice Company sent me another catalog. They sell quality spices, but their recipes can be awfully ... lame. This issue has another great chili recipe. It uses 2 pounds of meat, 4 cans of beans, 2 big cans of tomatoes, 1 onion ... and 4 teaspoons of ground chili. And 1 teaspoon of cumin powder. Are they for real? Horry Clap. My BASIC chili recipe for 2 pounds of meat:
take a double handful of ancho chilis (about 16)
take a big handful of guajillo peppers (about 8)
4 fresh Serrano peppers
4 jalapeno peppers
4 big onions
2 cans of pinto beans
2 pounds of meat
1 big can of tomatoes
3 cloves of garlic
1/4 cup of freshly ground cumin
beer

and goes from there. Destem and deseed the peppers, and chop into little bits. Chop 3 of the onions. Brown the meat in one pan, then add the chilis and chopped onions and cumin and garlic. Cook it all up for about 10 minutes, then add the tomatoes and a beer or two. Stir. Cook slowly for about 4 hours. Now prepare and chop up another 3 or 4 anchos and 2 guajillos. Run them through a grinder to powder them. Mince up the 4th onion and another clove of garlic. Mix it all in, probably adding another beer if the chili is too thick. You could add another can of tomatoes at this point, and you’ll probably want to toss in some hot sauce. Cook the whole thing for another hour, then serve. The pinto beans should pretty much dissolve before it’s done.

See, because chili is actually ... pepper stew. Which means it’s mostly peppers. With some meat and onions thrown in. And some beans and tomatoes for body. Not Sloppy Joe mix with just the slightest taste of chili peppers.

I’m open for new chili recipes, if they’re real. Hey, if I was a spice company, the recipes I’d give away would use LOTS of my product. LOADS and LOADS. 4 teaspoons of powdered chili. Who are they kidding?



Ok, back to work.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
