   Ynaught posted on Jokes  Yesterday, I had an appointment to see the urologist for a prostate exam.

Of course I was a bit on edge, because all my friends have either gone under the knife or had those pellets implanted. The waiting room was filled with patients.

As I approached the receptionist's desk, I noticed that the receptionist was a unfriendly woman who looked like a Sumo wrestler. I gave her my name.

In a very loud voice, the receptionist said, "YES, I HAVE YOUR NAME HERE; YOU WANT TO SEE THE DOCTOR ABOUT IMPOTENCE, RIGHT?"

All the patients in the waiting room snapped their heads around to look at me, a now very embarrassed man.

But as usual, I recovered quickly and in an equally loud voice replied, "NO, I'VE COME TO INQUIRE ABOUT A SEX CHANGE OPERATION, BUT I DON'T WANT THE SAME DOCTOR THAT DID YOURS."

The room erupted in applause!

   Ynaught posted on Jokes  This is an extract from Hillary Clinton's new autobiography, 'The Truth Will Always Prevail'. To be released soon…
"Some years ago, nearing dinner time at the White House, our regular cook fell ill and they had to get a replacement on short notice. He wasn't the smartest looking guy, in fact he seemed a bit dirty. Bill voiced his concerns to his Chief of Staff but was told that this was the best they could do on such short notice.
"Just before the meal, Bill noticed the cook sticking his finger in the soup to taste it and again complained to the Chief Of Staff, but he was assured that many Chefs did that.
"Dinner went okay, although Bill thought that the soup tasted a little funny. By the time dessert came, he started to have stomach cramps and nausea. It was getting worse and worse until finally the President had to excuse himself.
"By now, he was desperately ill with violent cramps and was so disorientated that he couldn't remember which door led to the bathroom. He was on the verge of passing out from the pain when he finally found a door that opened.
"As he unzipped his trousers and ran in, he realized to his horror that he had stumbled into Monica Lewinsky's office with his trousers around his knees. As he was about to pass out, this naive girl bent over him and heard President Clinton whisper in a barely audible voice, 'Sack my cook.'
"And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how the whole misunderstanding occurred."

   Ynaught posted on Coffee Klatch  I just stopped by and wanted to fill you all in on what's been going on here. My oldest stepson, age 50, has Down Syndrome. In Jan. he broke his hip and was admitted to the hospital for surgery. While under it was discovered he had pneumonia. Later they realized he was aspirating every time he ate or drank anything and so his lungs were constantly full of crud. So he wasn't allowed to eat for about 3 weeks while his throat healed (he had been intubated during the surgery and there was a bit of damage to the esophagus ). He was having barium swallows every couple days and finally was able to eat and drink thickened liquids. So then he was allowed to go home but after three days was admitted to a larger hospital as his hip was not healing properly and he needed a total replacement. While there blood work showed some anomalies and he had to have a bone marrow test which revealed a pre-leukemia condition. That is stable for the time being. Finally he was discharged to a rehab facility where he is supposed to learn to walk again. He fights this as he prefers a wheelchair. He will be discharged from this facility at the end of the month and will move into a group home with 24 nursing care close to us. Anyway, he has been taking up a lot of our time for the past couple of months. I hope now that things are settling down I will be able to catch up on what's going on with y'all.

   Ynaught posted on Jokes  A married man left work early one Friday, but instead of going home,
he spent the weekend partying with the boys.

When he finally returned home on Sunday night, his wife really got on
his case and stayed on it.

After 30 minutes of swearing and screaming, his wife paused and
pointed at him and made him an offer.

"How would you like it if you didn't see me for a couple of days..."?

The husband couldn't believe his luck, he looked up, smiled and said,
"That would suit me just fine"!!

Monday went by, and the man didn't see his wife.

Tuesday and Wednesday went by and he still didn't see her.

Come Thursday, the swelling went down a bit and he could see her a
little out of the corner of his left eye.

   Ynaught posted on Coffee Klatch  I have now been Dish-free for 24 hours and am enjoying Fox News on Direct TV. When I called in my cancellation the woman I was speaking with almost cried as she begged me to reconsider and get used to watching Newsmax channel instead! And she promised to reduce my bill by $35 for a year to make up for the loss and get me some other perks like PPV certificates and such. None of this was offered before when I was only calling to complain. Oh well, I'm glad I don't have stock in Dish!

   Escaped commieny  I cancelled Brighthouse about 5 years ago, it was a bundle of internet, tv and landline. I was getting wi-fi from my brother next door until his daughter finished college and they got a home modem. However we use AT&T go-phones, so any att cell numbers are free and I watch or if the video is short, go to TheRightScoop, I watch CBS shows like BlueBloods, NCIS, Elmentary, Metalist at and don't need cable or dish. The hurricanes took off our dish in '04 and hasn't been missed.

   BirdsNest  We dumped DirecTV a couple of years ago, it just got too expensive. When we called to cancel, they wanted to give us all this free stuff, lower the bill, and I just asked them "where was all this concern and lower charges when we needed it?" And we still dumped them. Now we watch dvds. And read online news. We don't have enough speed to watch a video online or stream anything, but that's okay.

   Ole buzzard  I can't even remember now how long ago it was that we dumped Dish Network. In order to get our local channels (which I only watched for football and baseball ), we had to get the 200 channel package, and out of those, we only watched five or six (or fewer than needed both hands to count ). It was ridiculously expensive for what we were using. Dish is coming out with a new service called Sling TV ( ) that is only $20/month for 10 channels.

   Ynaught posted on Recipes  I am planning on making an apple-walnut bread recipe in mini loaves as gifts for Christmas. The recipe calls for baking two 9 x 5 pans at 300 for 90 minutes. I expect I can get 4 to 6 mini loaf pans (3 x 5 ). Any ideas on how long they should cook and does the temp need to be adjusted?

   BirdsNest  I think Flaming Sword is pretty much the "go-to" person for this but just from my perspective, the length of time would be less, but temperature wise, the same because of the many pans in the oven. I could be wrong. I use my "easy bake" oven- countertop oven. Just remember to rotate the pans halfway through the time.

   Flaming Sword  Ynaught, You can leave the temp the same but I'd check about every 5-8 minutes starting no later than 30 min. They'll be ruined and dried out if you overbake. I keep bamboo skewers for this task. At 300 I'd guess they they'll be ready at about 35 minutes,depending on the density of the batter. As soon as the skewer comes out clean from the middle, get them out of the oven.

   Flaming Sword  Very welcome! And share that recipe. I do have a real timesaving hint that I'd always forget the first few times. Make a note of the time you put them in the oven. Make a note of the time they were ready. Then write that on your recipe card or in your cookbook.. 6 mini loaves-32 minutes,or whatever.. Then you can pretty much forget the constant checking in the future. It makes for some pretty scribbled up cookbooks, but hey, they're ours and we can mess them up if we want, right?

   Ynaught posted on Jokes  An attorney arrived home late, after a very tough day trying to get a stay of execution. His last minute plea for clemency to the governor had failed and he was feeling worn out and depressed.

As soon as he walked through the door at home, his wife started on him about, 'What time of night to be getting home is this? Where have you been? Dinner is cold and I'm not reheating it.' And on and on and on.

Too shattered to play his usual role in this familiar ritual, he poured himself a shot of whiskey and headed off for a long hot soak in the bathtub, pursued by the predictable sarcastic remarks as he dragged himself up the stairs.

While he was in the bath, the phone rang. The wife answered and was told that her husband's client, James Wright, had been granted a stay of execution after all. Wright would not be hanged tonight.

Finally realizing what a terrible day he must have had, she decided to go upstairs and give him the good news.

As she opened the bathroom door, she was greeted by the sight of her husband, bent over naked, drying his legs and feet.

'They're not hanging Wright tonight,' she said.

He whirled around and screamed, 'FOR THE LOVE OF GOD WOMAN, DON'T YOU EVER STOP COMPLAINING?!'

   Ynaught posted on Coffee Klatch  Three years ago today (it doesn’t seem like it could have been that long ago! ) my nephew was hit by a car while waiting for the school bus. He suffered multiple broken bones and brain injury and spent many months in the hospital. He is now able to attend school, rather than be tutored at home, but he ends up in the nurse’s office often as he tires very easily. He suffers seizures on occasion and his recently his speech became slurred. Neurological tests are going to be done to find out why this is happening. He is hoping to attend college next year as his younger sister will be graduating high school and going off and he wants to keep up with her. The fine folks at the Connection prayed for my nephew three years ago and I know that helped him survive his injuries. I wish to ask for some more prayers for him that he continues to improve and be able to fulfill his dreams of becoming an engineer. Thank you.
