Hi Jane,

By the way mark me down for loving sauerkraut{ though it did make me sick when I was pregnant} to not liking fruitcake. Is there a fruitcake that doesn't have those jellied little fruits? That's the part I don't like. Putting nuts in might save it for me but then it would probably be called nutcake.

MT,

How many Buffers are on static at Paine? Or is it just the D model there. Mine was a D and so is the one on display at MCO (ex McCoy) and Rome.

Look at it this way. My Dad flew crewed one and so did I - same AF. One of the marvels of aeronautic design and certainly in the top 10 of machines who made (saved) the world.

daddy

Dogs are angry since Dallas just pushed it into Overtime, but oh well.

Jane,

You missed big discussions about sauerkraut and FRUITCAKE. A(B) Is under some delusion that if we would eat FRUITCAKE with her and Tom Selleck we would suddenly convert to liking the stuff big time, but with the exception of 1 "moderate" Fruitcake fan who came out of the closet (Joan) pretty much everybody else either despise's the stuff or loves it. Very little ambivalence, and very well summed up by Agent J's puking grandson.

Sauerkraut on the other hand, appears to have a more optimistic future. Appears to be disliked severely during pregnancy, but acceptable in many cases in small bitefuls if slathered in brown brown sugar and not served cold by Koreans.

BTW, do you, Victor Davis Hanson, or Caro have Kidney Stones?

No reason really. Just asking.

You are a very funny guy, daddy.

daddy,

I had a 400 man crew of Korean's working for me in Balikpapan, Indonesia. They had a camp on a small isthmus across the bay in which the refinery was sited. The reason we had separated them?

The odious smell of Kimchee cooking and venting from their mess. I always wore a dust mask whenever I had to over to Tanju Batu where the camp was located.

And I thought Nuc Mong was a little too fermented:)

Just the one. In the background (looking North) is the corner of the main Boeing plant. BTW there is hardly a square foot of ramp, taxi, or secondary runways that aren't covered with mostly finished 787s and 747-8s. Initially, it was pending certs holding things back. Now I think it is engine delivery and a few older airframes that may not meet final config.

The Pats' pass defense continues to disappoint. Someone needs to tell Aqib Talib that the Colt receivers are banging his sister.

Speaking of college sports:

Just watched/listened to the UNC vs Baylor game in Womens Soccer.

At half-time, WCHL radio interviewed Anson Dorrance (UNC's coach).

Very unhappy with his players, he said, "They're playing like a bunch of fairies." (almost a direct quote, and I don't think he meant tinkerbell)

Hmmm, interesting choice. Comparing "timid" women to male homosexuals.

I'm pretty sure he is a lib, so this won't see the light of day.

Kimchee is a very good way for Koreans to get Vitamin C in the winter when little grows that provides it, and storage is limited. The peppers and vinegar probably help fight respiratory illness.

I think it's delicious.

In fact I love cabbage almost any way.

I had thought that SC was a closed primary State.

South Carolina — Both Republican and Democratic primaries are open.

None the less, when I work on the primary effort for 2014 to get a better Republican in that position it will be as a Republican.

Sen Graham gives in to the Democrats too often.

Jim Miller

narciso - I was busy yesterday so I didn't get a chance to reply to your comment.

Bottom line: No, Libertarians did not cost the Republicans nine races, in spite of what some Kos kid thinks. Two or three, maybe, but not all nine.

Here's my most recent post, explaining why briefly, with links to two other posts.

For those who don't want to read the posts -- and they aren't very long -- a simple explanation without numbers: If no Libertarian had been in each of those races, some Libertarians would not have voted, and some would have voted for the Democrat. So the net gain to the Republican candidate would be much less than the total Libertarian vote.

(It's easy to think of Libertarians who would have the Democrat as a second choice, rather than the Republican. I would think that those who favor legalized pot or are pro-abortion (pro-choice?) would probably prefer Democrats to Republicans in most races.)

From what we can see in those nine races, I think it likely that Tierney would have lost to Tisei in Massachusetts 6th, if the Libertarian had not run, and about even odds that Mia Love would have won, without the Libertarian.

DrJ

I'm with you on that, Clarice. Must be the Midwestern roots.

Tonight there's sweet and sour red cabbage to accompany roast duckling. Still have to get the after-dinner Cognac.

(A) nuther Bub

Oh, me too, Clarice. Kimchee fried rice. Glorious. And LUN is a recipe for kimchee dip made with sour cream, cream cheese, parmagiano reggiano, green onions and other stuff, then baked. It's fabulous, and very few will guess its cabbage-y secret ingredient.

I think that when we're all living on St. Jane's we're going to have to get some of (the former) JOMers to broaden their food horizons a little.

Okay, I'll shut up about food/recipes for a while, but it's no worse than football, is it?

Never open a jar of kimchee while sitting on the couch. Just saying.

The second line was a quote from somewhere.
Sorry for the confusion.
The more I see of the attempts to prevent a recount in the Allen West race, the more I wonder how anyone can ever vote for or trust a Democrat. If the votes were counted correctly the first time the total would be the same for the recount. Why not do a recount?

Jim Eagle

Yada, yada,, yada, But none of you have ever smelled Kimchee cooking for 400 men who are hungry. Believe me it competes with making horseradish. Both are perfect sinus clearers.

Well, I met Burt Reynolds--and also Jon Voight--many years ago in the mountains of North Georgia. They were filming Deliverance and were pitching horseshoes waiting for a film sequence. Burt was impossible and quite haughty, and Jon Voight was very, very nice. Of course, Voight is a conservative--wonder what, if anything, Burt is?

DrJ

(A)B,

Kimchee fried rice.

Don't forget Bibimbap.

JiB, I've made Kim Chee many times, and the recipe calls only for combining the ingredients and letting them fester for quite some time (traditionally it is buried in the backyard for the winter). Where does the cooking come in?

Jim Miller

Dave (in MA) - I feel your pain. We Washingtonians lost Slade Gorton to Maria Cantwell in 2000, thanks to a Libertarian, Jeff Jared.

(Jared received 64,734 votes; Gorton lost by 2,229 votes.)

From what I can tell, Tierney is a real sleazeball, bad enough so that he should have gotten a primary challlenge.

Porchlight

I've had one major and one minor kidney stone attack. Hurt like hell. Had shockwave lithoscopy about 9 years ago and nothing since.

BUT I have also been in labor for 38 hours total (divided between three kids) and had one child without any drugs whatsoever (18 hours of labor).

So when you read, as I have, that kidney stones are actually more painful than labor, take it from someone who knows, that is one hundred percent NOT TRUE.

Apparently Captain, the University of Maryland thinks you spell ACC "Big 10."

This has gone from an internet rumor two days ago to being in my fishwrap this morning and provoking a call from a college roomie. During that time I've gone from "unalterably opposed" to "I guess I can live with it".

At heart I'm sure it's all about the revenue.

hit and run

ABub:
What should I fear?

From last thread. You probably have nothing to fear from revealing where you live. Because you don't live with mrs hit and run.

I've told the story before . . . but I'm never shy about telling a story for the second (or third or fourth!) time.

Back in the mid-late 90s, the biggest rivalry in the NHL was the Colorado Avalanche and Detroit Red Wings. We lived in Denver.

A buddy and I bought redwingssuck.com and put up a lot of funny (if you were like 13 years old) content. A lot of photoshops, etc.

Well.

The sports talk radio station in Detroit looked up the domain registration, which naively I put under my real name, real address and real phone number. And they gave out my phone number over the air. In fact, during drive time on a weekday morning, they called our house on air. mrs hit and run was at home but didn't answer. So they got the answering machine (this is back in the day of those little tapes in an actual answering machine.

Yike.

Now our phone number was available to every Red Wing fan in the Detroit metropolitan area. And most of them called. And many of them left vulgar messages on the machine. Some made some quite vile threats.

We had to change our number. We spent not a few nights worried that there might be a Red Wing fan living in Denver who might actually try something, even if only a prank. They knew where we lived, and while one could convince oneself that the threats were all empty bluster, it would only take one that wasn't.

mrs hit and run has forgiven me for that. But she's definitely not forgotten.

Extraneus

That looks like a keeper, Porch.

matt

glad to have you back, Jane!

the traditional recipe for kimchi was to mix up the vinegar, peppers oil and salt with whatever other herbs are laying around. Add one well used sock for the really traditional version.

Decant into a clay pot and seal well. Bury the pot in the backyard and wait for the North Koreans cross the border. After the North Koreans didn't come over the border for a while, they dug it up and found that it tasted better than braised and seasoned dirt and it became the national dish.

Of course the Chinese and Japanese say they invented it but up until the 1840's they stayed quiet about it because the Koreans would kill them.

Never, ever get into a discussion of where certain things came from with a Korean. There is a very odd psychological dynamic.

Mexican official dismisses police explanation for shooting of US car with CIA officers inside

Mexican AG concludes it was attempted murder.

She said the investigation has shown that it was a direct attack on the U.S. Embassy vehicle carried out by 14 federal police officers, all of whom have been detained. All the gunfire came from the federal police weapons, discounting versions that the embassy vehicle fired first.

Arrest orders were issued for four commanding officers for allegedly planning the attack and ordering agents to lie, but they have sought legal protections and remain free. A fifth commanding officer accused of covering up evidence has given his declaration to a judge and been released on bail.

Pacheco didn't give a reason for the attack.

U.S. and Mexican officials have told The Associated Press that evidence points toward an intentional attack, perhaps ordered by a drug cartel.

I love cabbage in nearly all of its many iterations. Thought I hated sauerkraut, but, growing up I had only been introduced to the canned stuff. Now, I am an (A)B convert to the stuff (well, actually, Porchlight introduced me to the fridge section of fresher sauerkraut). I love a really good stuffed cabbage - but, let's face it the stuffing is the real controversial subject. I love slaws of all sorts - sweet, sour, and dirty (olive oil, kosher salt, cracked black pepper and balsamic vinegar).

Yummo.

Cabbage? Next thing you know someone will be telling us rutabagas have possibilities.

Both are staples of great Pennsylvania Dutch cuisine, as is sauerkraut.
Good German peasant food all.

There is nothing like mashed rutabaga seasoned with salt and pepper and equal parts butter and drippings from a standing rib roast. A Christmas treat every year at the Rhoads residence and no guest has ever left any on the plate.

Hot dogs or roast pork never get served at our house without sauerkraut in this house. The recipe comes from my Alsatian MIL's family, and features a pork chop, a teaspoon of sugar, and is cooked in beer. In the last five minutes, a paste of 3tbs water and 3tbs flour is introduced to thicken. Yum.

Finally, kimchee. My three Korean daughters arrived as a package in 1988, and introduced us to their national dish without which they could not do.

Being a sauerkraut devotee, I loved it. My wife never has warmed up to it, alas.

The Hostess bakers' union held out hope that a buyer would salvage chunks of the company and send employees back to work

Well, DrJ, there's been speculation that Bimbo S.A. (a Mexican company that owns Entemann's, along with other brands) might purchase the rights to the Hostess brands, including Twinkies.

If that happens, maybe the baker's union motto can be "We're all bimbos now."

On occasion this has tempted me enough to make a Denver connection on a cross-country flight, and on others to visit friends in the area.
