Dog no drink, but I give him part of a pork roast for the holiday.


I want to go on record that I invited Yggy over for dinner this evening and he politely declined. And Clyde would have been welcomed as well. Barbie, my spaniel, and Clyde don't really get along all that well (it's my stupid dog's fault, not Clyde's) but hay, it's the holidays.

I was going to share my turkey, but I got so excited that I lost the last picture. :(

It was a uniform golden brown the shade of KFC original reciepe.

4 mins. per pound= 45 mins.

Happy Birthday, Elliot!!!
[media]


Doc: I so appreciate the invite, too.
I just tend to wanna lay low, stay away from people and merriment, and all that today.
Lots of reasons, none worth sharing.
and well, your dog is a bully, just admit it! a True canine terror. Poor Clyde trembles and the mere mention of her name.
He and I are alike in out timidity.

Hey BB!
Hey BVB!

FJ: the pic with the turkey in it almost looks like two people pissing in a boiling bucket.........just sayin.


I have a new Stephen King book to read..........."The Wind Through The Keyhole". Supposed to be a spin off from "The Dark Tower" series, one of my all time favorites.

The annual christmas quiz can be sadistic:
So perhaps your Christmas is over now, or has not yet begun, and perhaps you're not having Christmas at all, and you want a quiet something to tide you over on this day when America seems to stop business as usual. For your listening and dancing pleasure, therefore, a Christmas quiz.
Of course, you could read this column with your trusty Google by your side, but it might be more fun to see if your actual brain can provide the answers. Or you can do it with friends and see how that hive-mind thing is working out. But however you want to do it is fine. It's yours now.
1. Victorian people who wanted to make something accurate down to the finest details were said to "get it right down to every jot and tittle." What are a jot and a tittle?
2. What was Whoopi Goldberg's original name?
3. What is Mexico's full name?
4. Benghazi, Libya, has been much in the news lately. If you fly east from Benghazi, what is the first country you hit? (Hint: It's not Egypt). If you fly due west from Benghazi, what is the first country you hit? How about due north? Due south?
5. What language was Oscar Wilde's "Salome" written in?
6. Define these aristocratic terms: (a) Baron of Beef, (b) Vickers Viscount, (c) Countess of Huntingdon's Connexion, (d) Marquess of Queensberry Rules, (e) Duke of Earl.
7. Who lived in Ayot St Lawrence? Hint and more questions: He won a Nobel Prize. What other unexpected honor did he win? The work he won that prize for inspired another cultural landmark. What was it?
8. California place names: What does "manteca" mean in Spanish? To what does Point Lobos refer? What does Malibu mean in Spanish?
9. According to the song "The Twelve Days of Christmas," what did the gift receiver get from her true love on the beginning of the Forefeast of the Theophany?
10. According to the eighth of Alcoholic Anonymous' 12 traditions, what should AA forever remain?
11. What was the original name of Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice"? (a) "First Impressions," (b) "Old Friends," (c) "Family Matters," (d) "Suitors, or A Novel of Suitability," (e) "Benefit of Clergy."
12. What was the name of Dr. Frankenstein's monster?
13. What was F. Scott Fitzgerald's real name? (a) Franklin Benjamin Fitzgerald, (b) Forsythe Westcott Hammond Fitzgerald, (c) Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald, (d) Gerald Rosenbloom, (e) Scott O'Connor Fitzgerald Jr.
14. What does the word spaghetti mean in Italian? (a) Little peanuts, (b) little strings, (c) little reeds, (d) uncooked turnips, (e) without sauce.
15. Who wrote, "The law, in its majestic equality, forbids the rich as well as the poor to sleep under bridges, to beg in the street, and to steal bread"?
16. There are 12 mantras that accompany each Surya Namaskara. During each namaskara, how many yogic postures are assumed? Bonus question: What is the informal name for the assumption of these yogic postures?
17. How did mayonnaise get its name?
18. Zane Grey was a prolific writers of Western stories. What was his day job?
19. You may recall that Uri Geller (do you recall Uri Geller?) sued the Amazing Randi for calling his "psychic spoon bending" routine a cheap magician's trick. How did that case turn out?
20. If I'm seeing signs that say "Outlook good," "You may rely on it," "Try again later" or "My sources say no," what are you looking at?
The answers will appear in this space or one very like it on Wednesday. Special thanks to Nancy Friedman, Dan Goss, Jack Mingo, Jim Goulder, Herb Mager, Andrea Behr and Bill Van Niekerken. Please address complaints, corrections, admonitions, emendations and discreet raillery to the e-mail address listed below, attached as it is to a lovely poem by Lewis Carroll from "Alice in Wonderland."
A few queries about movie stars, condiments, literary lions and the Forefeast of Theophany.
How doth the little crocodile improve his shining tail, and pour the waters of the Nile on every shining scale. How cheerfully he seems to grin, how neatly spreads his claws, and welcomes little fishes in with gently smiling jcarroll@sfchronicle.com.

Hey neighbor! Thank you for birthday greetings!

I was at the Willits Kinetic Carnivale both days with my big white airship on display, to the right of the main stage.

I'm only aware of two other burners in Lake County. But there is a fairly active North Bay regional burner group, centered around Santa Rosa.

Hey, good morning (((everyone)))

*starts ECM*

*mixes a :coffee: with some of Pink's hot choccie*

Happy belated birthday to my dear friend Elliot and to the mysterious Kernel, wherever he may be. I worked all day yesterday and was surprisingly busy; seems we are having a lot of respiratory illness among the little ones, here. :( But me and mine had a very nice xmas together.

ah, coffee. thanks MDF.

well happily, the "holidays" are half over.
Started and got half way through a new Stephen King book yesterday, between welding on the Hofstove.
It's an offshoot of my favorite series (arguably), of his: "The Dark Tower".

I may lose a big part of the next work day or two, to it.

I'm a pretty slow reader, I think.
I love the movie that plays in my head as I read, so go sort of slow, to enjoy the details.
