Thks Mel - your said images, was too much for even Beau...as I just sat down, for supper.
- was at friends garage, getting taillight fuse replaced & exhaust leak figured out
- added a 1/2 a tank, of premium fuel...to mix with the old regular (with stabilizer), from sitting (siting 8 months)

Made a fresh pot of coffee, and sitting down to Mrs67 homemade vittles.
- meatloaf with a ketchup/vinegar/brown sugar glaze
- raw cauliflower with catalina dressing dip
- hot backed potato with ground pepper & natura butter
- kaiser bun buttered up, with pepper
- plus a Stewart's root beer

Timing of your post Mel, was ill conceived...
- probably getting even with PapaBear, for an earlier & mild transgression

^^ Larry owes you one back, our Ma !!
- there is no avoiding "equal or better payback"
- we know who you are & we saw what you did ...here

melbrod Just watched the transit of Starlink satellites across the sky. There were about 60 launched earlier today. They traveled in a stream--I could see about 8-10 individual dots about the brightness of an average star (about like the North Star), but there was also a thin sorta glow between them making a sort of streak--the rest of the satellites. It wasn't totally dark yet and there was a very thin haze, so that was what my eyes could distinguish.

This picture is from another launch a few months ago, but this is what they looked like (this video was made into a gif so it is very short before it repeats, but they actually travelled steadily across the sky) They went straight overhead--first showed up at about 35 degrees above the horizon and disappeared at about that same angle on the "other side" of the sky.



Kinda neat.

If it were closer to Christmas time and my kids were still little, I could have told my kids it was Santa, his sleigh and his reindeers out for a test run.

Cannot say that I have had a Doberman hair as a sticker/sliver....hard to imagine. But stranger things have happened.

My sticker is still in my finger - I got called into work late evening and didn't have a chance to do much with it. Will try tonight.

TN...

Around here, the deer suck the leaves and flowers off roses. They leave the stems, but not sure that would work as landscaping.


This is what I'm seeing about Hydrangeas:
Hydrangeas are hardy from zones 4 through 9, and the heat in zone 9 means hydrangeas need extra protection. Because hydrangeas prefer moist, well-draining soil, they need a shady spot to keep the soil from drying out too quickly. They also need soil on the acid side with lots of organics (which helps with acidity and moisture retention) . We're zone 4-5, except we have wild swings of temperature and are dry, which I think puts us on the more severe side of a zone. So I don't know.

Juniper, barberry and lavender seem to be the standbys here. I like the lavender I've seen, it grows well--but it's lavender. I don't think it would look good with my color house/brick/deck. I already have barberry on the front of the house, and juniper is....juniper. Lots of sizes and some different growth patterns and textures, but still....juniper. It's kinda overdone here.

I hope so, but even if it doesn't, having the straw laying there is much better than having bare dirt and having to clean dog paws multiple times a day. And the straw matches the color of the deck so there's that LOL


The clouds are already moving in and we've had a few sprinkles; high of 61 with the temps falling in the afternoon with the wind picking up to 25mph...the heavy rain is supposed to start around noon, and turn to sleet and snow around 7 tonight...yay, a slippery deck and patio, what can possibly go wrong? Tonight's low, 16 degrees and tomorrow's high only 29...time to get the MC coat out for Mocha!
[B]DAMN TN - I knew you lived in the high rent district ! Great looking place ! The only thing that it need is a lot over looking the TN river - lol I am surprised that you didn't go ahead and spend another 10 - 15 K on a outside kitchen ! lol I was going to PM you about the stamped concrete with that kind of finish on it - We also have a Slab ( Stamped ) that was put in about 25 years ago and they also finished like yours - I'm not kidding here TN - With rain - it can get as slick as ice - That was the first year , the second year and it needed to be resealed and the contractor told me I can do it and save a ton of money - He told me what to use and I got it from aggregate Company - I applied it and it bubbled up - they sent down 2 deferent reps to look at it - said I did everything right but had no idea why it was doing what it was doing - So just left it natural - still love the " wet" look from the finish - yet it's not as slick either - which was - is good for the dogs . Again - great looking place ! /B]

1/2 cup chopped celery (1 stalk--I chop to a fine dice)
8 cups chicken broth (I start out with 6 cups--and add more if needed)
1 14.5 ounce diced tomatoes, undrained (I use the kind that has Italian seasonings if I have it--otherwise just plain diced tomatoes is fine.
1 8 ounce can tomato sauce
1 clove garlic minced (I usually add several cloves of garlic and toss it in with the carrot if I'm using the mini chopper
2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning, crushed
1 Bay leaf
1/2 cup of orzo pasta

Brown sausage and break up while browning--drain well. (the original recipe says to brown the sausage, onion, carrot, celery over medium heat until the meat is brown but I can't drain it well enough if I do that so I do that in two steps--and leave just a little fat in the pan an cook the onion, carrot, celery, garlic over medium heat stirring until the onion is translucent. Then I add it to the meat in a big pot)

Add the broth, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, Italian seasonings, bay leaf to the meat mixture and heat to boiling, reduce heat to simmer, cover and simmer for 1 hours.

Add the orzo (if my celiac friend is going to be having dinner with me I substitute rice for the orzo so she can eat it). Bring mixture back to boil, reduce to a simmer and cook uncovered for 1/2 hour.

I add to the basic recipe a the very end after the orzo has cooked 1/2 large green pepper chopped or 1 small green pepper chopped, and zucchini (3 small--sliced into 3/4" rounds or half rounds) and one yellow squash sliced into rounds or half rounds--I don't cook the zucchini very long--I want it crisp so the green pepper goes in first but since your dealing with the Mr's dislike of anything green you probably won't be adding this.

Add cayenne or hot pepper flakes if you want it hotter. Top when serving with parmesian cheese (shredded or as it comes in a can--like dust) Serve with garlic bread and a red wine.

It took me longer to type this than it does to prepare it (except for the 1 hour of simmer and the 1/2 hour of simmer after adding the orzo.

This makes a big batch and I usually freeze some--it freezes well.

It's time for my morning nap--Leon finally quite screaming at me and crawled under all the covers on my bed--maybe he just wanted company.

ABTLH
Mister will find the celery and pick it out. He's such high maintenance when it comes to cooking.

Whatever! Sounds good to me.

Mister can spend more time picking out "things" than spend time eating good food.

He's got energy drinks in the fridge that are labeled "beet" something or other. Called him on it this morning. Told him, "I thought you hated beets". He said, "Well it's mixed with other ingredients that doesn't taste like dog crap". Asked him when the last time he ate dog crap was.

End of story.

Coco, our Shih Tzu is going through that now. He turns 16 this month and he's to the point where he'll just stop in mid stride in the middle of the room and stare into space. His eating and drinking habits are off too; it's like he's forgotten that he's hungry or thirsty, or that he just drank some water so he goes back for more. And more. And we caught him peeing on the carpet the other day which he hasn't done since he was a puppy. I know that eventually, we're going to have to make a hard decision but for right now, that's a conversation my wife doesn't want to have...

You just picking on me Kenny?

Well, this morning there was a spectacular red/orange/yellow and pink sunrise--no rain and it looks like it might not have gotten down to the dewpoint (38 degrees) last night because everything looks pretty dry so I'll be able mow both lawns (and rake up another zillion fallen leaves--the local trees are almost bare--thank heavens).

I'll take Toad out with me to do the back--that'll wear him out--and give him an opportunity to bark (in his scratchy old dog bark) at the invading squirrels.

No ultra cold in the forecasts for us--all pretty moderate and actually some pretty nice weather considering how wet November usually is.

...ACK! Leon is screaming at me again--"STARVING CAT HERE--NEED MORE FOOD! Mel's Siamese video was too much--I didn't even have to see it just the first frame--I'll watch it next time I'm at the library...

I went to the bathroom with my readers as I can't see much without them. In better light and with glasses I saw the small little hmmm cant say what I am thinking....so just splinter. Tried tweezers but way to small. I used the needle to pick at it. But having to use my left hand (right handed), I pushed it deeper in. Argh matey! So there it will sit I guess and hope it doesn't infect.

Think I would rather just be punched. Thus my aversion to needles as well!

Any homemade remedies to get splinters out? Put mud on it draw it out like stingers
Have you had a Doberman hair yet? This has happened to me several times already where I was walking and suddenly felt a sharp pain in the ball of my foot. Upon close examination with proper lighting and a magnifying glass, I could see a hair lodged in the skin. How those hairs get into the tough skin on the bottom of the foot is beyond me but it hurts so include me in the sissy club

Good grief! I had to turn off the volume after abut 30 seconds. We had a Siamese when I was a wee lad and although she was quite vocal, it was nothing close to the ruckus those two cats were producing.
