Merry Christmas to all at JOM.

I can't imagine a worse way to spend Christmas Eve than being at the Mall - but then, I am not a man - aren't they the traditional last minutes shoppers? heh.

Merry Christmas Eve, DoT - I bet you are not shopping today!

For a cute and even beautiful vision of an intrepid Christmas, everyone should check out Bing (before they change the photo).

How can you tell the diffierence between gun nut Wayne LaPierre' and the anchor on Meet The Press?

La Pierre' is the one that doesn't violate gun laws!

Merry Christmas

Pops

So Gregory's ultimate point was that Lanza or other killers would not have broken the law regarding possessing a 30 round clip, that was just too much of a criminal act for him to perpetrate.

And all the good guys who responded to the school shooting should be hampered by having only 10 rounds while the criminal could have 30 or 100 or whatever.

Old Lurker

Merry Christmas, guys. Thanks for another great year among friends at JOM.

Next week David Gregory is having on the head of Planned Parenthood. He's going to have props used to perform late term abortions.
Asks PP Rep sternly, if these were banned, wouldn't more children have lived?? Don't you want to give these kids a fighting chance?

Jim Ryan

But, Pops, we learned this lesson in the Bible. It's a Christmas story. In the Bible, God punished Mary with a baby. She had to take care of it, and that's a terrible burden, as any parent can tell you. The meaning of Christmas is to keep abortion widespread so that teen gals don't have to suffer the punishment of having a baby.

pops-- thanks for the continued attacks on the smarmy phony David Gregory!

A very happy, healthy and merry Christmas the the JOM community.

Many thanks for the anniversary wishes, they washed down the sole very pleasantly. (That means you, gus. Gino's East? Haven't been there since the Health Dept closed it for 6 months back in the eighties.)

I hope so, Ext.

I also hope Clarice brought a sweater with her. It's cold here at 5:30 a.m., at least it feels that way to us. 65 degrees at the moment and I'm bundled up, awaiting sunrise eagerly. It's not the cold, it's the humidity.

I'm prep cooking today because we're going to hold our festivities until tomorrow afternoon, when our houseguests from Colorado arrive -- the couple who were married on our lanai last Christmas, returning for their first anniversary. It's Mister's 85th birthday too, and our 32nd wedding anniversary. Lots of Champagne glasses will need to be thrown at the fireplace.

Mele Kalikimaka to all.

Merry Christmas wishes from Hawaii after daddy's Chinese christmas pictures last night. I feel so well traveled.

Well what Red wanted that was 30% off the other day was 50% off today. So I bought one in bright Red for the Diva as she just got her learners and will have to start carrying a wallet with her. At some point they should enjoy having the same thing indifferent colors.

I had to walk by Tiffanys and it was hopping but in the less expensive, if still too much, part.

No I do not use chicken livers or pancetta. My kids liked lamb until they asked what it was and hubby made Baaa sound.

They liked calamari until a cousin told my then 12 year old son what it was. Although now he will eat anything but chocolate.

Time to wrap a bit more.

Terrible story coming out of Rochester: Four firefighters shot when they arrived at a fire, two dead, two in guarded condition. Perhaps the house was a meth lab? In a decent middle class suburb.

Islam versus Europe:

"Three churches in the Austrian town of Amstetten (pop: 21,000) were burned this morning. All of the indications point to arson. Several eye-witnesses saw a suspect. As is their custom, the police and newspapers have given a detailed account of his stature and clothing, but fail to mention his skin colour. Amstetten has a large Mohammedan population."

I'm sure the meth heads who shot the firemen were Louise Slaughter's kind of people; possibly on that crone's staff.

DoT,

And a Quaker school at that - Sidwell Friends. I always thought Quakers practiced pacifism? Same school the famous gun control protagonist - BHO - sends his kids. That means it is the most protected piece of school property on the face of the earth. Their hypocrisy is breathtaking.

If only we'd had more gun control I'm sure those meth heads would have obeyed the law and the firefighters would still be alive.

Progs have no shame or even common sense. What happens if a low information prog (sorry to repeat myself) reads this story and decides to break in an confiscate the guns himself. He gets killed thats what happens and then whose fault is that? The NRA or the newspaper for publishing the names and address of legal permit holders?

Wow JIB.

The urban school districts have always been the practice arena for all these bad ideas for the political reasons I have described. Aggrieved and ignorant is politically powerful and the articles I have read will not feel slavery has ever been put behind as long as free markets and capitalism exists. So much hate.

Looking at the timing of what changed when and the language used on wanting to target the suburban school systems and prevent them from being beacons of solid academics, I believe that NJ and CT were essentially treated as one large target. Where people moved to get away from minorities and poverty and thus to an idealogue, a kind of apartheid. Yes they do use that term.

That's a story that must not come out into common public perception at precisely the same time it is being nationalized elsewhere. That particular editor will not know that but he may know that the schools are not to be examined. He just does not know why and wants to take advantage of the horror to continue the agenda.

It's Christmas Eve but the first time I ever encountered the name Peter Senge that I have written about quite a bit now after being contacted by parents in Winston Salem and Vermont was following up on Chandon, Ohio.

Must take advantage of the tragedy and divert attention from common factors that involve political theories that the Left continues to want to exploit.

This is the same mentality that simply changed names after Columbine. People are not really important to them. Power and control is and they sure are proving it.

Everyone enjoy their precious families during this magical part of the year. I wouldn't write if I did not believe it would be helpful to families searching for whys and knowing what is under assault. Given I flipped over a very large number yesterday on views it seems to be working. The info is available now when needed. Although I am a bit surprised at whoever decided to read everything I have ever written earlier this morning. Hope he or she was sipping eggnog.

Merry Christmas everyone! Just been stuffing tortillas with beef, cheese, and sauce for Christmas Eve supper before church this evening.

I'm making a caramel pie for dessert. Got recipe from Southern Living about 15 years ago. So simple. Cook two cans of sweetened condensed milk in a small crock pot, stirring occasionally, for 6 to 8 hours. The result is luscious caramel. Pour in graham cracker crust. Top with whipped cream and crushed Heath bars. really good and easy.

matt

All of our best wishes for Christmas to all here. It has been a challenging year, so it is even more important to remember the reason for the season.

daddy's photoessay from all over the world reinforces the happytime aspects of the season. Heathens everywhere wishing each other "Merry Christmas" is somewhat disconcerting.In Japan, the tradition is to have KFC and a cake. And so it goes.

May you have peace, joy, and good health, and may all of you feel the love and generosity of spirit that the season evokes.

If it was a meth lab, wouldn't the house have blown up?

It seems like all producers of illegal non-pot drugs use highly flammable solvents. If the room is saturated with the fumes an explosion will happen but if a flame ignites near the source a regular fire that's likely to be difficult to extinguish will occur.

Christmas '12 JOM

Manuel Transmission

Merry Christmas to all at JOM.

Unfortunately, the grinch arrived here a couple days early probably in punishment for voting as blue as King County. First, a pal of ours split errands with her husband on their way home to their houseboat and proceeded to roll her ankle on a pinecone at the top of the stone steps down to their marina. After tumbling all the way down, she laid there out cold for ten minutes until her hubby showed. Then one of our conservative pals who hosted a We Survived the End of the World brunch Saturday, had a heart attack. That cancelled the Christmas dinner and Boxing Day trip to Victoria. And finally, and on a much lower level of grief, I blew out the side of a molar and found out my dentist is off until the 8th. Bah humbug!

At least for the other two, our new hospital got a workout.

narciso

Wow, MT, that's a bad run of luck, there.

Jane - Mock the Media!

I got this in email. It is very long, so my apologies, but very good:


Columbine victim's father- 13 years later !!
Guess our national leaders didn't expect this, hmm? On Thursday, Darrell Scott, the father of Rachel Scott, a victim of the Columbine High School shootings in Littleton , Colorado , was invited to address the House Judiciary Committee's subcommittee. What he said to our national leaders during this special session of Congress was painfully truthful.

They were not prepared for what he was to say, nor was it received well. It needs to be heard by every parent, every teacher, every politician, every sociologist, every psychologist, and every so-called expert! These courageous words spoken by Darrell Scott are powerful, penetrating, and deeply personal. There is no doubt that God sent this man as a voice crying in the wilderness.. The following is a portion of the transcript:

" Since the dawn of creation there has been both good & evil in the hearts of men and women. We all contain the seeds of kindness or the seeds of violence. The death of my wonderful daughter, Rachel Joy Scott, and the deaths of that heroic teacher, and the other eleven children who died must not be in vain. Their blood cries out for answers.

"The first recorded act of violence was when Cain slew his brother Abel out in the field. The villain was not the club he used.. Neither was it the NCA, the National Club Association. The true killer was Cain, and the reason for the murder could only be found in Cain's heart.

"In the days that followed the Columbine tragedy, I was amazed at how quickly fingers began to be pointed at groups such as the NRA. I am not a member of the NRA. I am not a hunter. I do not even own a gun. I am not here to represent or defend the NRA - because I don't believe that they are responsible for my daughter's death. Therefore I do not believe that they need to be defended. If I believed they had anything to do with Rachel's murder I would be their strongest opponent.

I am here today to declare that Columbine was not just a tragedy -- it was a spiritual event that should be forcing us to look at where the real blame lies! Much of the blame lies here in this room. Much of the blame lies behind the pointing fingers of the accusers themselves. I wrote a poem just four nights ago that expresses my feelings best.

Your laws ignore our deepest needs,
Your words are empty air.
You've stripped away our heritage,
You've outlawed simple prayer.
Now gunshots fill our classrooms,
And precious children die.
You seek for answers everywhere,
And ask the question "Why?"
You regulate restrictive laws,
Through legislative creed.
And yet you fail to understand,
That God is what we need!


" Men and women are three-part beings. We all consist of body, mind, and spirit. When we refuse to acknowledge a third part of our make-up, we create a void that allows evil, prejudice, and hatred to rush in and wreak havoc. Spiritual presences were present within our educational systems for most of our nation's history. Many of our major colleges began as theological seminaries. This is a historical fact. What has happened to us as a nation? We have refused to honor God, and in so doing, we open the doors to hatred and violence. And when something as terrible as Columbine's tragedy occurs -- politicians immediately look for a scapegoat such as the NRA. They immediately seek to pass more restrictive laws that continue to erode away our personal and private liberties. We do not need more restrictive laws. Eric and Dylan would not have been stopped by metal detectors. No amount of gun laws can stop someone who spends months planning this type of massacre. The real villain lies within our own hearts.

"As my son Craig lay under that table in the school library and saw his two friends murdered before his very eyes, he did not hesitate to pray in school. I defy any law or politician to deny him that right! I challenge every young person in America , and around the world, to realize that on April 20, 1999, at Columbine High School prayer was brought back to our schools. Do not let the many prayers offered by those students be in vain. Dare to move into the new millennium with a sacred disregard for legislation that violates your God-given right to communicate with Him. To those of you who would point your finger at the NRA -- I give to you a sincere challenge.. Dare to examine your
own heart before casting the first stone!
My daughter's death will not be in vain! The young people of this country will not allow that to happen!"
Darrell Scott

Wow, MT. Love Victoria. Want to take my family to Butchart Gardens and that coal baron's big stone house.

Veggie's cut up now. Diva texted to make sure I had all the ingredients for her to make pumpkin pie. Luckily I had planned for that.

For some reason though I am out of tomato paste. Hopefully this will be last trip to grocery store. My son's first Christmas he was barely a month old. Hubby was working as the boss because something had gone down that needed to handle processing. I fell asleep and woke up after all grocery stores were closed but an Asian market.

Dog doo process of law...

Florida Democrat Michael Voeltz had filed a lawsuit against Barack Obama’s eligibility to serve as President of the United States and claimed that he was a threat to the safety and security of the United States. Larry Klayman, founder of Freedom WatchUSA served as Voeltz’s attorney on the case. On Dec. 13, Florida Circuit Court of Leon County Judge Kevin Carroll gave the plaintiffs until Dec. 23 to respond to Obama’s attorneys’ motion to dismiss the case. However, Judge Carroll went against his own order and dismissed the case on the 21st. In his dismissal, Carroll wrote:
“This court notes that President Obama lives in the White House. He flies on Air Force One. He has appeared before Congress, delivered State of the Union addresses and meets with congressional leaders on a regular basis. He has appointed countless ambassadors to represent the interests of the United States throughout the world.” “As this matter has come before the court at this time of the year it seems only appropriate to paraphrase the ruling rendered by the fictional Judge Henry X. Harper from New York in open court in the classic holiday film ‘Miracle on 34th St.’ ‘Since the United States Government declares this man to be president, this court will not dispute it. Case dismissed.’”
Carroll’s dismissal was immediately challenged by Klayman claiming that the judge prematurely dismissed the case without a proper hearing as described by state law. Klayman explained:...

Jane-

Read the article in the globe about what went wrong for Romney and what went right for Obama.

Looking at the map and list and matching it to the "block captain" database of Obama voters, how hard would it be to start obnoxious protests at these homes? Recall that the SEIU bussed in a bunch of thugs (with a police escort) to protest at the home of a BAC executive. I see that sort of fascist direct action becoming more common and more overt in the coming years and targeting people much less well off than a bank executive. Stunning when I read that globe article. Obama is building his own secret informer force and his followers don't even realize it.

Janet

....& that pie recipe sounds great, Joan.

AliceH

I'm keeping a low profile these days, but figured in addition to wishing you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, I'd also belatedly share the greatest butter cookie recipe on the planet. This from my not-really-my-aunt Ella, who came to the U.S. from Germany in the late 40's I think. Quantities converted from weight.

Ella’s Butter Cookies
1. Preheat oven to 350
2. In large bowl, mix the following ingredients, adding one by one:

1 lb butter (slightly softened is fine)
2 1/8 cup sugar
2 whole eggs
8 egg yolks
2 TB lemon juice [this is THE secret ingredient - use lemon, not vanilla extract]
8 C flour

3. Cover with plastic wrap and chill at least 1 hour
4. Roll out dough to about 1/8” thickness (do this in batches, not all at once)
5. Cut out cookies with various cookie cutters, using spatula to move to cookie sheet. (I have bells, xmas trees, stocking)
6. (optional) Paint/brush tops with egg wash using pastry brush
7. (optional) sprinkle with colored sugar
8. Bake 12-15 minutes, or until edges start to brown

Egg wash: Whisk in separate coffee cups or small bowls/ramekins –one egg yolk, ½ tsp to 1 tsp lemon juice, food coloring.

This recipe makes approximately one ton of cookies. You can freeze the dough, though, so okay to make a full batch and bake half now/freeze half for later. Cutting the recipe in half also works, but these are soooo good, you’ll wish you hadn’t.

Only challenge is what to do with the 8 to 12 egg whites left over. I use them in meringue cookies or substitute 2 egg whites per one whole egg in various muffin recipes. That, and it’s not low carb. At all.

pagar

AliceH, so good to see you back, Merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas to everyone!

We are having filets wrapped in bacon after crabcake slider appetizers. I am trying my hand (first time!) at the almost no knead baguette recipe from King Arthur Flour's website (one of the many things I have to say "thanks Clarice!" for.)

(This morning I drove the van in and told my husband I want a new muffler for Christmas. He replied that it wasn't a proper present, and besides we are getting one anyway. He also promised to bail me out if I get arrested for violating noise ordinances before I get home!!!)

narciso

What kind of filets, Cathy.

centralcal

The cookies sound yummo, AliceH! As do all the menu items JOMers are sharing.

Jane: Tammy Bruce on Twitter about that map, notes that it also tells potential criminals who is vulnerable, because they are NOT armed!

Filet mignon -- my MIL ordered them for us for an anniversary present, and I took them out of the freezer this morning. I am very tempted to mix up some bernaise sauce and top them with that and a crab cake and asparagus, but I'm not sure how that will work with the bacon.

A friend sends me this priceless quote from an article on narcissism:

"And let’s not forget Thomas Friedman, whose every column reads:  'I was visiting somewhere impossibly glamorous when I had an idea that could change the world.  As my prince/billionaire/genius host showed me around, he pointed out how deeply he agreed with me.  Why is everyone else so slow?'”

Amazing how so many judges, from so many backgrounds and in so many jurisdictions, all keep getting the birther stuff wrong. A conspiracy so vast...

(A) nuther Bub

Thanks C.C. for the shout out and I had to gulp a couple of times when I saw you were serving standing rib roast to 18. We usually have that on Christmas too, but this year my husband wanted another brined turkey because he loves the stuffing so much, I'd guess. While shopping yesterday I looked at the standing rib roasts, ones that would serve about 6 generously, 8 adequately. They ranged in price from $68 to $76, and were U.S. Choice, not prime. Geez. Must be take-out-a-mortgage time to buy one for 18! (Or is it the usual Hawaii mark up we pay for living in Paradise? BTW, I think it was MOTUS who thanked Hawaii residents for making the Mainland Obama-free at Christmas. I'm ready to accept all gestures of gratitude. A prime rib roast would be much appreciated.)

rse

cathy-if you have cranberries, sugar, and port (tawny or generic) I can type up a great sauce that I use for beef tenderloin that I sometimes do for Eve. But it is also yummy with pork tenderloin or turkey.

And for those keeping track my eldest who could not be with us has called within the last few hours.

centralcal

Ha - no mortgage (A)B, but damned close! Plus I had the foresight (at least, I hope it was) to get two of them at 8-9 lbs each, so that they will fit in my oven. It is the main entree, but not the only one (we also have my s-i-l making his homemade and beloved ravioli), so I don't plan on serving 1-inch thick slabs of meat - more like 1/2-inch slices.)

We are just a stone's throw (okay a little further than that) from Harris Ranch (where the beef comes from). Nearly all the markets around here only carry "select", or if you find a better market, "choice." Prime has to be ordered ahead.

Did you all see the link at Instapundit about the 3 y.o. toddler who found some cool eggs in the backyard? Picked 'em up and put him in his closet. Then, they hatched and Mama found lovely, deadly, baby snakes.

Merry Christmas to All. Those butter cookies sound rich but sooooo good.

We are also doing a roast beef dinner for 18 tomorrow. Got a whole 16.5 lb. USDA choice boneless ribeye roast from Costco. I am planning to try the low and slow method for the first time. Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Cook at 200 degrees until the roast reaches 115 degrees on meat thermometer. Take out of oven until 40 minutes before dinner. Crank up the oven to 500 degrees and put the roast back in oven for 25 minutes. Take out roast and let rest for 15 minutes before serving. It is supposed to roast the meat uniformly with a great crust.

If anyone has had a bad experience doing rib roast this way, please let me know.
