   Surfhut posted on Coffee Klatch  Balogreene's post below reminded me of the first time Magdalene and I met in person. She and I became friends here on The Connection. Soon after moving from SoCal to OKC, we arranged to meet in person for lunch. My family freaked out that I would do something so "irresponsible" and "dangerous." What if it's a cyberstalker? An axe murderer? Where are you meeting? Should one of the men in the family follow to make sure you are safe? I've encouraged them to become Ldotters, to no avail. So, I refused to tell them when and where Mags and I were meeting. To recognize each other at the restaurant, Mags said she would be wearing a big floppy hat and I would be wearing a Berkeley t-shirt. Behold, I give you me and the axe-murderer.

   Magdalene  Thank you, it's been a while since I checked in so imagine my surprise to see my face string back at me! Of course, I don't look like that now, my hair is about 1/2" long now. Going through radiation at the moment, estimated finish day March 2.

   BirdsNest  Surfie I remember that picture when you first posted it, so much joy emanating from it. Thanks for re-posting. Mags- It is great that you have posted to let us know about your situation so we can ramp up the prayers for you. There are a lot of good people here. People that you can rely on and feel comfortable with.

   Surfhut posted on Faith  The power of the Holy Spirit, living and breathing in and among so many people who have never met in the physical world fills me with awe. And joy. And hope. Ldotters from New York, New England, Florida, Oklahoma, Texas and who knows where else are here, praying for each other. Beautiful.

   Phooey  Surfie, you unashamedly bear your soul for the world to see.

"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."
"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."

Surfie, someday you will hear these words:
"Well done, good and faithful servant!"

   Surfhut posted on Movies & Reviews  Please, dear movie buff friends, read my post on the Faith wall and say a prayer for my best friend. I know you will pray for Karen because Ldotters pray for each other without explanation. Know this: Karen is a movie buff with a memory that astounds us all. She is only 60 but doesn't participate in places like this. If she could be coaxed into playing on this Movie Wall, she would blow everyone out of the water. That is probably an overstatement because I'm a bit emotional right now. Please, movie buffs, say a prayer for Karen Sue.

   Surfhut posted on Faith  Remember praying for my oldest and dearest friend Karen when she had an 18-hour surgery to remove a softball-size brain tumor? It took a long while, but she came back. Full speed. Last week, she had trouble waking up. When she did, her speech was garbled. She recognized it (good thing ). Long story short, her brain has begun to swell around the itty bit of tumor they could not remove because it is wrapped around her carotid artery. She is in the best of medical hands. I now request that you place her in the best of faith warrior hands. Please pray for Karen Sue.

   Surfhut posted on Sports  Seahawks or Patriots tomorrow? I'm rooting for Seahawks only because past player Steve Largent and I grew up together and I have a couple of great friends who live in Seattle. Big Football is as corrupt as anything/everything else these days. Tomorrow, I just want to see a good game.

   Clipped wings  A quote we often use at our house is "Can't they both lose?" is my feeling about this match up. Neither is a team I'd hope to see get to the Super Bowl. I'm sure the recent deflate-gate issue will have added to the number of viewers. Keeping a good book handy to read during the half time extravaganza however. Best part just might be the Budweiser puppy ad.

   Surfhut posted on Recipes  I don't remember who recommended prouditaliancook.com - Thank You! I made her salad with roasted grapes and faro last week. It was outstanding. I love that she is (mostly ) using ingredients that are in season. For example, roasted grapes. It would never have occurred to me to roast grapes. They were deelish. Today, I'm going for the kale & quinoa patties.

   Surfhut posted on Recipes  I have a SIL who's mother is from Beijing. I'm horribly sick with whatever's going around and must resort to this Chinese recipe. It is no fun, but it works.

Ingredients: soup, green tea, very hot bath, lots of blankets, sleep.

MAKE THE SOUP:
Put a cup of white rice, 3 cups of chicken broth, lots of onions and garlic and ginger in a big pot. Bring to a boil then simmer until the rice has fully bloomed and very soft. Breathe in the steam while it cooks. Eat a bowl of it.

Meanwhile, brew some green tea and draw a bath with the hottest water you can stand. Get in the bath and drink the tea while in the bath. Get out and wrap yourself in towels, robes, anything to keep the heat going. You will be sweating a lot during the process.

Get in bed and sleep. It isn't fun, but usually works like a charm.

   Escaped commieny  My Mom made a gross concoction of boiled milk, a pat of butter, garlic and onions. Made us drink it but it burned out any cold or congestion.

   Surfhut  I made a terrible mistake in the recipe. For one cup of white rice, add AT LEAST 3 cups of broth or water. Keep cooking until it gets the consistency you want, adding broth/water or not. I feel better now!

EC, my mom rubbed menthol on our noses and chests, fed us chicken soup and tortured us with sitting in front of the new invention called television.

A shot of whiskey with "healthy" lemon and honey sounds pretty good right now. But I seriously need to get well!

   Escaped commieny  well that buttered garlic and onion worked until I was old enough for Hot Toddies, the alcohol and honey works to break up the congestion, and if it takes a while, WHO CARES at that point, is that a pink elephant?
Surfie, have you added some zinc to your vit C ?

   Balogreene  When I was in college, I got a terrible case of bronchitis. Mom made an appointment with the allergist (our regular doctor ), for a Saturday morning. I went home Friday night, and by Saturday was basically better. My Dr. asked what I did. We'd had a May birthday party, We bought a half-gallon of vodka, and orange juice, grapefruit juice, lemonade, and I forget what else. The Dr. told me Screwdrivers (or the equivalent ) are good. Citrus never hurt anyone, and vodka calms the cough so you can sleep, so you can heal! My mom was furious with him. But, it still works.
i've had sinusitis since Thanksgiving, just finishing my third round of antibiotics. I refuse to do more, besides, they make me so sick to my stomach! Living on yogurt and kefir. Get better Surf!

   Surfhut  Are you better Balogreene? I'm back among the living but still taking it easy over this weekend. The weather will be a glorious 60 and sunny, so I want to get a ton of things done. But I know better and will take it easy this weekend.

   Surfhut posted on Movies & Reviews  A little entertainment to fill the gap while Storm and Mei are away. A quote from one of my favorite movies:

"Bick, you shoulda shot that fella a long time ago. Now he's too rich to kill."

Do you know the movie, the actors, the roles they played?

   Richdet  "Bick" is Rock Hudson. The "he" being discussed is James "Jett" Dean. The movie is "Giant." The actor delivering the advice was one of the actual Texans in the movie. Anybody guess who?
