Thursday Thirteen....

1. I was looking for recipes for a bacon sarnie (and could not find any that I thought were good or interesting). I did find this recipe for a mushroom sarnie. A sarnie is a sandwich...."sarnie" is what they call it in Great Britian.
-----Egg and Chutney Sarnie....from the BBC series "Red Dwarf."
-----Ricotta, courgette, lemon and mint summer sarnie. "Courgette" is the French word for zucchini.

2. Internet Protests upcoming New Zealand Copyright having a virtual blackout. I hope that you will join in some way.


Finally, another episode of Hell's Kitchen was put up/aired. I wish that I had enough culinary skills to do something like being on this show. I HAVE had enough bosses that were less than pleasant...I could deal fairly well with the stress and yelling. I learn a lot about cooking when I watch this show.

4. The most unusual wedding dress I have ever seen

5. Listening to Johnny Cash songs on "JustHearIt." I like that the royalties are music.
-----Don't Take Your Guns to Town
-----Wo ist Zuhause....Five Feet High and Rising.In German.
-----Jackson. I like this version because both June Carter Cash's voices are much stronger than I usually hear. Wonder if they were older here than when the two of them originally started singing this.
-----Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down
-----Guess Things Happen That Way
-----Ragged Old Flag
----Johnny Yuma Was a Rebel
-----Personal Jesus. I am not that fond of his rendition of this song. I like the verses....just not the chorus. I like that you can understand when Johnny says "reach out and touch Faith"....until recently I thought that the lyric was "reach out and touch me." As the song progresses, I think that Johnny's rendition gets better...maybe it is like someone thinking about what they are saying and getting more excited. Maybe I like Johnny's rendition of this more than I thought.

6. Creamy Corn Soup with Cumin Croutons

7. Has anyone noticed that some shows are starting to have their episodes be further and further apart? I do not like having to wait weeks for an episode.

8. Douglas Adams is one of my fave authors. Below are some quotes from him.
-----I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.
-----It is no coincidence that in no known language does the phrase 'As pretty as an Airport' appear.
-----There is a theory which states that if ever anybody discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.
-----You live and learn. At any rate, you live.
I could have gotten these from my Douglas Adams books....but got them from "The Quotations Page." The Quotations Page is the oldest quotations website on the Internet....established 1994.

9. I have been reading about keyless locks...particularly those that open using fingerprints. For some reason, John McCain and his not remembering how many houses he has jumped to mind.



A work-in-progress right now. :-) I hope that all of the Thursday Thirteen former owners are doing as well as can be. When Thirteen went down I had offered to take over or learn to take over the meme but got no reply. I recently found someone who has informally taken it over. I am very happy to be participating in this event was one of the regularly-fun-parts of my week. :-)

And then....
I did not get this finished due to a bizarre typing problem. Blogger would not let me type the letters C,H and T. Firefox would not let me type the letters C,H,T and V. WEIRD. The problem was fixed by rebooting. I am also going to try some canned air on my keyboard....though the computer is only a few months old. WEIRD. Hope I don't have some strange virus.

We will try this again next week.
