Merry Christmas folks!



Hope everyone has had a good year.

Even If it don't finish another kit in the next week, I've finished more models this year than any year since 2013. And in December alone, I finished 3 models, the most in a month since high school (Class of 72).
Of course, I started 2 of them in 2010!

LOL, and the cops still won't admit it was donut glaze, mostly 'cause they didn't test for it....

Okay, this is mostly to get that "You suck!" message off the top of the list and out of everyone's misery, but there's part of this story that I just completely do not believe.

I mean, who's ever heard of a cop who can't identify a doughnut in field conditions?

There has been an outbreak of politeness of almost Canadian proportions which has swept through Washington DC recently.

Everyone is going around saying "Pardon me!"

Did you ever ask yourself what would have happened of George Lucas had asked the Beatles to do the soundtrack? Probably this.



Some people seriously have too much time on their hands, but that has to be one of the best re-writes I've even seen! Thanks for sharing and Happy Star Wars Day!

Cheers, D

Donald Trump once enrolled in a sailing school, but he just couldn’t manage to learn how to sail. He tried and tried, day after day, but always managed to get tangled up in the ropes and fall overboard. Finally he quit in disgust and walked away, ranting “I can’t win this boat! It’s rigged!”

My recipe for Brussels Sprouts relates back to the Grandmothers methods. Put your 1/2 pound of Brussels Sprouts into a large pot of simmering water, along with a large rock. Boil until you can can stick a fork into the rock, then discard the Sprouts and eat the rock.

The same recipe is used here to cook Carp and Cormorants

Cheers, D



Yum! love boiled rock on Canadian back bacon and French toast!

I agree that Brussels sprouts prepared properly can very be tasty, but come on! Using bacon is just plain cheating--it can't be anything but yummy!

Thanksturkey day rapidly approaches here in the Great Wet North, which brings to mind one of the traditional accompaniments, the humble Brussels Sprout. Many people loathe them, because far too often they were cooked the way they were in our Grandmothers' day; boiled until all vestiges of nourishment and flavour were long since lost into the boiling water (which was then poured down the drain).

It's a much better idea to prepare them in a modern, flavourful way. Herewith, the recipe for pan roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon (Stolen from the Food Network and adapted slightly):

Ingredients:

8 strips thick-cut bacon

2 tablespoons butter

1 pound Brussels sprouts, halved

1/2 large onion, chopped

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat until crispy. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate. In same pan with bacon fat, melt butter over high heat. Add onions and Brussels Sprouts and cook, stirring occasionally, until sprouts are golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Toss the Brussels Sprouts and onions straight into the compost and eat the bacon.

So I wonder what it would take to wash this one down?

Two Leprechauns knocked on a convent door. When the Mother Superior opened the door, the Chief Leprechaun asked "Mother Superior, do ye have any Leprechaun Nuns in this convent?"

Mother Superior answered "No, I don't have any Leprechaun Nuns in my Convent."

The Chief Leprechaun asked "Mother Superior, are there any Leprechaun Nuns in any other Convent in Ireland then?"

Mother Superior answered "No, there aren't any Leprechaun Nuns in any other Convent in Ireland either."

The Chief Leprechaun asked "Mother Superior, what about any other Convent anywhere in the world?"

Mother Superior answered "No, on my authority we have no Leprechaun Nuns in any Convent anywhere in the world."

And with that, the Chief Leprechaun turned and swatted the other Leprechaun over the head and exclaimed "Ye hear that ye idjit! I told ye that it was a penguin ye slept with!"

In honour of the date:

Patrick and Michael were the best of friends. One day they decided to go bicycling, but when they got to the rental shop, all that was left was a tandem. They decided to take it anyway, and Patrick got on in front. They rode for a while down the scenic country roads until they came to a steep hill.

They stopped and looked up. “Begorrah, that’s the tallest hill In all Ireland!” exclaimed Patrick. “It is, so it is” replied Michael “We’ll have our work cut out for us, sure.” And so they started up the hill, each pedalling as hard as he could. Soon the sweat was pouring off and they were gasping for breath. “Faith, this is a steep hill” gasped Patrick. “It is, so it is” exclaimed Michael, and they pedaled even harder.

At last they reached the top, and stopped to catch their breath. “Saints preserve us, that was the steepest, tallest and hardest hill in all Ireland!” said Patrick. “It was, so it was” said Michael. “and if I hadn’t kept the brakes on we’d have rolled right back down!”

It would be great for commuting in Seattle, if only the FAA wasn't so fussy about their airspace...

It's a pity they trimmed out some of the best jokes.

Flavius
Thanks. Well, let's reconstruct the crime: Caesar was over here, and— What's the matter?



Brutus
Look over there, behind that pillar. Ssh! There's somebody behind that pillar; I'll go get him—



Flavius
Right!



Brutus
All right buddy!



Antony
Ow—ow—ow— Stop it! Stop it!



Flavius
All right, buster, what are you doing around here.



Antony
Well, what do you expect me to be doing? Why shouldn't I be here? I'm Mark Antony.



Flavius
Mark Antony?



Antony
Yes. I just made a speech over the body of Caesar. I said, "Friends, Romans and countrymen, lend me your ears!"



Flavius
Yeah? What have you got in that sack?



Antony
Ears!



Flavius
Will you get out of here!
