   Linder posted on Coffee Klatch  Oh, no! I've just been negatively labeled by none other than Mylie Cyrus...as one of those short hair ladies.

   Gram77  I only ask what a short haired lady is because Mylie Cyrus said it. P.S. I don't care for her.

   Linder  I happened to glance up and see her on TV...noticed how uncultivated her speaking voice is and then heard her make the remark about the short hair ladies. I assume she was saying she knows older women don't approve of her and she doesn't care. We H.S. classmates all turned 70 this year and can't wait for our next lunch meeting to refer them as short hair ladies.

   Linder posted on Nostalgia  Who says you can't go back? While setting out the under-the-eave and porch plants into the rain I got a bit damp. Came in to change clothes and spotted the big umbrella. It's been at least 60 years since I purposely walked barefoot in running rain water in the open ditches. Now the ditches are paved gutters, wore my rubber garden shoes and back then there were no umbrellas at our house...it still felt good and familiar.

   Surfhut  Linder, you brought back a beautiful memory. I lived in SoCal when my son was born. Traveled to OKC often so he would know and love his family here.

My parents lived next door to my sister and her family. One August afternoon, thunderstorms erupted. I held my dear toddler in my arms and raced through the downpour across the adjoining yards from my parents' to my sisters'.

My parents watched us make that run and it made them laugh out loud. It never ceases to amaze me how profound such simple things are.

   HopeandGlory  Reminds me of sitting on our covered front porch watching the rain pour off our metal roof, our 8 year old grandson was with us and he thought that was the neatest thing . . . Simple Pleasures, aren't they Grand!!!

   MeiDei  Back when I was about to undergo chemo a friend sent me a powerpoint presentation or a video(not youtube ) entitled: Dancing in the Rain - inspirational; nothing is so important that you can't take the time to relive fond memories and pass them along. Sometimes a puddle is there to be stepped in, just because.

   Linder posted on Recipes  Braised Red Potatoes with Lemon and Chives
1 1/2 lbs baby red potatoes
2 cups water
3 tbsp. unsalted butter
3 garlic cloves, peeled
3 sprigs fresh thyme
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 tbsp. minced fresh chives

1. Arrange potatoes cut side down in single layer, in 12-in. nonstick skillet. Add water, butter, garlic, thyme, and salt and bring to simmer over med.high heat. Reduce heat to medium, cover, and cook until potatoes are just tender, about 15 min.
2. Remove lid and use slotted spoon to transfer garlic to a cutting board; discard thyme. Increase heat to med-high and vigorously simmer, swirling pan occasionally, until water evaporates and butter starts to sizzle, 15 to 20 minutes. When cool enough to handle, mince garlic to paste. Transfer paste to bowl and stir in lemon juice and pepper.
3. Continue to cook potatoes, swirling pan frequently, until butter browns and cut sides of potatoes turn spotty brown, 4 to 6 min. longer. Turn off heat, add garlic mixture and chives and toss to coat.

   Linder  Oops, the potatoes are to be halved and some of mine were large enough that they needed to be quartered. Made this for our supper along with BLTs. I let the potatoes get very brown and crusty. Potatoes, tomatoes, thyme and chives from the garden made it fun and tasty. Saw it on Cook's Country in the middle of the night recently. Will do it again.

   Linder posted on Pet Peeves  When did all makes of cars begin looking alike? I have to look at the logo on the grill to tell the difference.

   Rake King  That's called "Design Pirating", when one design seems to catch on, others copy it, with only some minor changes, and then stick their grill on it. It's like Hollywood/T.V. copying and "remaking" stories....cause only a few can write anything new these days...that don't have vampires, hobits, or some weird characters.

   Safetydude  I want to respond to 'Linder' and the cookie-cutter cars.

I think it goes back to the 1986 Audi 5000. The first of the 'grape' shaped cars. Then it was all about aerodynamics and it went to he*l after that.

I'm proud to drive my '99 GMC 2500 Sierra. $100.00 per tankful, 500 miles per fill-up, at 75+MPH in complete comfort with or witout flat towing my Jeep Wrangler.
Aerodynamically, it's like pushing a large shoe box through the air.
When I blow past a "Prius" or a battery car I laugh out loud.

   Linder posted on Coffee Klatch  I take pride in keeping up with the news but am finding myself being overwhelmed with scandals, revelations, investigations, news alerts, etc. etc.... I may be becoming desensitized. Is this part of the Obama strategy?

   Linder posted on Main Page The Lobby  I have never been a huge Texas Governor Perry fan but I hope everyone was watching the program with Hannity tonight. I've just been smacked in the face with a whole bunch of common sense.

   NotaBene  Governor Perry was my choice as a President. I was sorry that in the debate he looked so spaced out. I learned later that he had back surgery days before and was taking pain killers. He is a wonderful man that love this country. If he runs again he will be my favorite. We need somebody like him to get this country back.

And Linder, you are right, he is a common sense man. I understand what he says and I agree with him in every way.

   Linder posted on Suggested Reading  Picked up "Flags of our Fathers" for a quarter yesterday .... was sitting in the porch swing reading it when I handed it off to Gramps to look at some pictures .... and he has yet to return it. Also bought and read "The Five People You Meet in Heaven". Poignant!

   Linder posted on Gardening & Landscaping  First green beans and new potatoes from the garden today....flavored with bacon, ham, onion and garlic. I had forgotten what fresh from the garden food tastes like.

   BirdsNest  Last Friday evening I picked 37# green beans from the 75ft row to take to the flea market to sell. On Wednesday I picked an additional 11# beans from the same row. Since we have no place to sell them except the flea market(Sat.only ) we gave them to friends. This evening I will pick the other row,different kind of beans,more slender and these we will take to the flea market tomorrow.Last week we had 2 big buckets of green peppers,mix of bell and Italian,sold many but also gifted friends with the rest. I will pick the peppers tomorrow before we leave. Eggplant will be ready sometime next week. Tomatoes are beautiful but refusing to ripen, so we just might enjoy some fried green tomatoes while we wait. The pole Limas are recovering from the beating of 44mph winds from H. Arthur. The wind beat the heck out of the vines in the air.Getting a few cukes, enough to enjoy with dinner. I ate one while I surveyed the progress in the garden this morning. Luffas are on the fence, now I have to "police" them to stay on the fence so the neighbor won't mow them down. Kuri squash the size of soccer balls. Potatoes could be investigated for "grovelin' taters" but I can wait.

   Linder posted on Coffee Klatch  Looks like we Iowans are in for a bumpy weather ride until about six o'clock. Have taken meds, important papers and things, to the basement. Will keep tuned in to our excellent TV and radio weather reports and try to be safe. After today we have good weather ahead.

   Gram77  Do take care. Sounds like you are used to heading for the basement with all the proper important papers. Much like preparing for a hurricane but without a safe basement.

   Balogreene  Stay safe Linder and family.

In about 1980, I had a horrible infection in my jaw, Tornadoes were all over the area for the western Chicago suburbs. I went to the dentist, got my percocet, drank some scotch, listened to all the alerts while I was watching movies on TV. The next morning, I woke up in an inside closet, the closet door was closed, I had my pillow, two comforters, two cats, their food and water. I didn't have a basement, and that was the only enclosed area on inside walls in the house.

   Linder  Thanks all for your concern. Balo, loved your story! I'll keep that in mind. Won't have the meds but I could double the scotch.

   Balogreene  I was afraid of tornadoes from 1967 (or thereabouts ), when they locked us out of Jr. High while we watched the funnels go overhead. When we got home that afternoon, the funnels we had watched had hit Belvedere IL. They hit the high school, just as the school buses with students from elementary through high school were in the lot. A lot of kids my age were killed or injured.

When I moved to NM in 1982, I finally realized a thunderstorm did not mean a tornado. That is a long time to hold that fear.
