   Gerty  Mr.Wright--is there something I am misinterpreting in this chart?

For example: The question is "What is your state the WORST at? If Alaska is the worst at suicide, that means there are fewer cases of people offing themselves there. Yes?

It doesn't work the same for all states. Oh, my...I'm so con-foooosed!

   Wrightwinger  I think the idea is that these are bad things that are present in remarkable numbers in each state. I have no idea about the validity or the veracity of the information, and certainly don't think it means that some of these are in epic numbers. In WV we do tend toward heart disease and diet related problems as the number of family farms and gardens decline, and the food that is less expensive tends to be food that is also used to fatten cows.

   Balogreene  The animal shirts can be found at themountain.com. I have a beautiful shirt with a Shih tzu, they get better looking with washing. They cost $20.00, but, I asked for mine as a gift.

   MeiDei  Thank you Balo - what a great website, found exactly what I would order for a certain relative - and $15 less than the site I mentioned. Their range of sizing is a plus - again thank you.

   Balogreene  20 some-odd years ago I gave my twin nephews a twinkie each. They were about 18 months at the time. Their mother was not happy, but, I am the AUNT. I don't think they had much in their mouths, but it was in their belly-buttons (and they had shirts and pants on ), and noses, and ears, and hair. It was oddly delicious, and they loved it and giggled for a long time as they ate. To me, that was all that mattered.

   Wrightwinger  I too have some memories of my elder daughter Becky's second birthday. She had a cake with creamy icing in front of her, and my brother asked her where her head, her nose, her ears, etc. were. With both hands all sticky, she showed him... It was funny, but my wife wasn't really amused as much as he was amused...

   Wrightwinger posted on Gardening & Landscaping  Well we were cleaning out the freezer and discovered several roasts and some older round steaks hiding in the bottom. We decided to can the meat for soups and stews in the winter. ( A really simple process, clean the meat of gristle, excess fat, bones etc by bringing it to a boil in a really large pot, cut it into strips or cubes, bring it back to a boil, fill jars, process for 90 minutes at 10 lbs for my altitude. ) We then put the bones, scraps of meat some carrots, celery, onions, etc with several quarts of water back on the stove, along with any leftover broth from the other meat. I added a splash of vinegar to help get the calcium from the bones. Simmer for several hours on a low boil, At the end I added a couple of bay leaves, some rosemary and some parsley. Added just a bit of salt since it is easy to add more later. After about four hours of boiling, and a long sit overnight, I reheated the broth, then removed the bones and other chunks, filtered through a colander, and canned the broth at 10 lbs for 25 minutes for my altitude. While we had the stuff out, I pulled out some fresh potatoes we had grown in some large pots and cleaned and canned them. ( 10 lbs for 40 minutes. ) Busy few days.

   MeiDei  When you say "can" specifically meat, do you use a pressure canner? I was always told for corn, green beans, non-acidic veggies you had to pressure can them vs a hot water bath or the steam seal process - which is what I prefer for tomatoes, sweet pickled beets, sauerkraut & all jams & jellies.

   Balogreene  WW in 1982, in Oakbrook IL there was a Czech restaurant, I liked. I loved their liver dumpling soup, and I'm not fond of dumplings, and don't like liver! The thing is, they made their broth from all the meat in the restaurant, chicken, lamb, veal, beef, pork, etc. I don't know what spices they used, but it was fabulous. I swear it was so good because of the blending of flavors.

   Wrightwinger  I do pressure can most things. We seldom just use a hot water bath. Although years ago, my wife's folks canned in a no. Nine wash tub over an open fire in the yard. That was a lot of work, and is NOT considered safe for most things anymore. But they canned beans, corn, and other stuff. They did pickle a lot of things too, cabbage, corn, beans, etc. I never really liked pickled corn or beans, I guess because I expected them to taste like regular veggies.

   MeiDei  Steaming is my preferred choice. Bought a steamer 30+ years ago from a Feed Store. Found I could also use my largest pan with the egg ring insert and using the stock pot upside down to double my canning by steam. Made canning over 24 qts. of marinara sauce, 12 qts. each of tomato & grape juice, several 1/2 qts of sweet pickled red peppers and beets, stewed tomato w/garlic & a jalapeno pepper, jams, etc. fast and easy. It was so rewarding.
