    Fall back Thursday #505!

    It's time to change those pesky clocks backwards, to gain that lost hour of sleep we so desperately need.

    It's also time -This would make Phred pleased as punch- to check the batteries on your smoke alarms, CO2 detectors and pretty much any other battery powered device you may need in an emergency.

    I am making a command decision and sending the Orc into the L&F to get the batteries....I don't want to miss the pulled pork I made from a Boston pork butt - insert your jokes here.......

    Done?

    My smoke detector automatically gets checked every fall when I turn my propane fireplace on for the first time. Something about turning it on after it has set all summer, I guess it is the dust that gets in there that cannot be vacuumed out causes some sort of chemical reaction?

    I have an upset stomach right now. Might be because I peeled my banana the wrong way. I'll have some lime seltzer water.

    I fell back, but Myndi didn't. Her internal alarm didn't automatically reset and we've been up for over an hour already.

    How was your butt, Richard?? I'm tossing pork chops with some molasses, brown sugar, BBQ sauce, onion and garlic in the crock pot to cook all day, so they will probably fall apart on their own - no pulling required.

    Coffee anyone?

    Yes, coffee, please...

    No, Pinot's internal alarm has not reset, either.

    Richard, the pork butt sounds good, but I'll have it later. Just coffee, please, in copious amounts.

    One lime seltzer. Sorry to hear about your stomach.....

    I always freak out when the dust gets burnt the first time around....

    DONE!

    Pom,

    I wish my butt was a little bigger, my pants sag horribly?

    I cooked it for about 14 hours and then made a ketchup, vinegar, tomato sauce and served it on Kaiser rolls with cole slaw!

    Pork chops in the crock pot remind me of mom.......want to adopt me?

    I'll pour if you brew?

    DONE!

    PM,
    Mas cafe! Mucho mas cafe!



    DONE!

    Cali didn't get the time change memo either. She was some ticked when I told her to go back to bed for an hour when she woke me at 2 am. 45 minutes later I relented, fed her and when back to bed. Brat!

    We're having a few nice weather days, most of the snow has melted. Expecting another dump for Friday. At least we're out of the fog.

    Putting on a pot of tea, Earl Grey, double bergamot. Anyone? Is fabulous with vanilla almond milk.

    I was appealing to your "mom instinct", age had nothing to do with it.

    I always wanted a nice big sister, so this will work.

    I'll do some tea.....We were sitting her watching the Weather Channel and were in shock that there was snow on the ground, isn't the global, warming?

    Sounds delightful, I'll try some! No almond milk for me, though, just a bit of sugar, maybe!

    Since there will be a lot of hot air everywhere in the states today , I thought I'd add my share in the form of a crockpot full of hot chili. And I do mean HOT! I went a wee bit heavy on the chili peppers. Please feel free to join me later in a nice big bowl full, and cornbread on the side! Cold here today with a heavy frost, so it will be a nice belly warmer tho.
    Can someone send Orc in search of a fire extinguisher?????

    Happy Election Day, and may the "best" man win.

    I'll send the ORC in search of one.

    Hot Chili...I hope it has beans in it......later we can sit down and 'shoot the breeze' just like real politicians!

    How's about a morning smoothe?

    I think banana and pineapple are good. Or some apple juice and a scoop of vanilla ice cream!

    DONE!

    Of course it has beans - and lots of them. Chili just isn't chili without them - IMO. Glad you got my meaning of "hot air" - I think it would go right of the head of a lot of folks.

    Pineapple and banana smoothie??? - count me in - for a double please.

    And before anyone else has the chance, let me wish my baby bro a big:

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY



    Done?

    If there's still chili available, I'll take a bowl, with a beer to wash it down with and get the taste of voting out of my mouth.

    Ummmm........someone wanna tell the Orc that we meant fire extinguisher.......as in a little hand held one? There's an airport foam truck pulled up outside......
