  1. Steven & Olga: Babies With Babies

    And trying to keep up with Russian traffic is, in itself, an E Ticket ride! But here is another problem...
  2. Making Your Own?

    One of the best groups on Facebook for Foodies is the Fermented Hot Sauce Society. It is far less complicated than it appears. Once you taste your own you will not care for the commercial brands at all. In any sized jar, layer carrots, onions, tomatoes, garlic, peppers. Add a few slices of limes or lemons. Mix a brine of 3.5 per cent sea salt to water ratio and fill the jar. Always keep the vegetables below the liquid. You can do that easily by filling a ziplock bag with brine and stuffing it on top of the vegs inside the jar. If you don't have an airlock, just unscrew the top everyday and burp the ferment. The hot sauce will be ready after three weeks even though you can brine for years. After fermentation, drain the liquid and set aside. Grind the vegs finely in food processor or blender. At this point you decide if you want a thick hot sauce or a thing one by adding some brine or vinegar to it. This method allows you keep your hot sauce on the counter, in the cabinet or fridge for years as it is fermented and will not spoil.
  3. I so agree!!! And I can't stand people who deny their own culture. What her father said about his people "messing things up" was so antiquated and low self-esteem based it made me cringe.
  4. S05.E08: Slayer II

    I was overjoyed to see F-ing Larry but now can't follow the series. How is he doing? I had subscribed to Sling again but they aren't showing Atlanta and Americans are boring so I unsubscribed again. Does F-ing Larry stand a chance?

    Okay, I'm out. That last episode was disgusting. Besides, their roles are so undynamic I still don't know one person from another. Is the one brother hitting on his sister? Should have known what was coming (no pun) with the ejaculation on the picture window a few episodes back. Stopped watching.

    For dramatic purposes of the opposite kind... It is unlikely that ALL of the kids would be such poor dancers. But, in their defense, they may have been dancing with no music as is often done in films. But still, if I was producer or director, I would say, "no way, give them some music! They look so lame!".

    What exactly happened in the barbershop?
  8. Low Carb Eating

    s, thisLow C is a great breakfast, lunch or brunch dish. I made it for breaksfast this morning. Numbers are 7.9 g protein, 3.9 g carbs and 27 g fat. 298.8 calories. Pepper Egg Boats
  9. I also advise talking with your doctor. Have you ever had labs done? They test your blood and urine to get feedback on your blood sugar, chlolestral, thyroid and all other body functions. Cometimes, low blood sugar or pressure cause the palpitations as well as high blood pressure and high blood sugar. Getting tested will be the best thing.
  10. It sounds so nice. Should be very calming. Do you feel it when you use it? Would love to have a massage with it, lol.

    Becauser logos and a few other things are artwork and you have to have permission from the creator to use it. Learned that through CafePress...
  12. What is Yoga Balm? Be sure, if anyone is using just the oils, to mix it with a carrier oil or cream. Direct contact with skin is not advised. Seriously all, when you learn the few little precautions using the oils is easily done and safe.
  13. S01.E06: Penetrate a Fraud

    I would not take exception to your view even if you did not find it compelling. It is the same view of Black life in Los Angeles, Southern California. Frankly, I get tired of the one-ness of Black life anywhere. But as I said, it is well-written and fully developed. Just as The Wire made me sad but I could not look away.
  14. S01.E06: Penetrate a Fraud

    Yes, I am having problems respecting the point of view from the writer. For sure, it makes great television for some if not the majority of viewers. But from everyday life from the perspective of African American urban life, not so much. It is harmful in a way to present just this one view of Chicago because people oare so vulnerable these days and do not do much thinking outside of what they are shown. Thus, we have the stereo typical Black thug, baby daddy, abusive male, loose Black woman character. It would surprise the world to know that not every young Black male struggles... some just march right on through life accomplishing, winning, settling into mundane or very credible lives. I wonder, though, if little kids actually run around all hours of the night doing whatever without anyone being concerned? Yet, the parent is shown as caring and hard working. But the show is intriguing because it is well-written with fully developed characters that you can actually get to know through the script. Also, it is based on some parts of someone's life somewhere because a lack of realism would turn it into a whole nother story.

    Bandon's mom bothers me. Her new husband bothers me. Emmet is unbelieveably millennial. The guy in the hat who bought the building who stole the dog scares me. I can't decide of this show is depressing or entertaining. If it is more depressing than The Wire or if The Wire was better all around. IJDK...
