God Bless Grandma --- Gotta Love 'Em!!!
Here's a quote from a government employee who witnessed a recent interaction between an elderly woman and an antiwar protester in a Metro station in DC:
"There were protesters on the train platform handing out pamphlets on the evils of America. I politely declined to take one.
"An elderly woman was behind me getting off the escalator and a young (20' ish) female protester offered grandma a pamphlet, which she politely declined. "The young protester put her hand on the grandma's shoulder as a gesture of friendship, and in a very soft voice said, 'Lady, don't you care about the children of Iraq?'
"The old woman looked up at her and said, "Honey, my father died in Germany during World War II, I lost my husband in the Korean War, and a son in Vietnam. All three died so you could have the right to stand here, and bad mouth our country. If you touch me again, I'll stick this umbrella up your ass and OPEN IT."
~God Bless Grandma...and God Bless America~

...and now fer some good old down home country farm humor... this old country boy wasn't about to take any Bull.....
They went up to the first pen and there was a sign attached that said, "This bull mated 50 times last year." The wife playfully nudged her husband in the ribs and said, "He mated 50 times last year."
They walked to the second pen which had a sign attached that said, "This bull mated 120 times last year. "The wife gave her husband a healthy jab and said, "That's more than twice a week! You could learn a lot from him."
They walked to the third pen and it had a sign attached that said, in capital letters, "This bull mated 365 times last year." The wife, so excited that her elbow nearly broke her husband's ribs, said, "That's once a day. You could REALLY learn something from this one."
The husband looked at her and said, "Go over and ask him if it was with the same cow."
NOTE: The husband's condition has been upgraded from critical to stable and he should eventually make a full recovery.

Now here's a recipe I borrowed frum Miss Fanny and Miss Vera...their website link be a listed under "Frends & Naybors" as Fanny & Vera's Camp Cookbook in the right side bar...
Now Sir...I made this here recipe fer my grandson's gradjiashun party last weekend...and it's GREAT! Hell...T'weren't nuthin left but a whole lot a bean farts, an empty pan and a strange aroma in the evenin air......
I made a couple a variations on the original recipe and it still came out absotively super...here tis...
This recipe serves approximately 25 people.
Miss Fanny and Miss Vera's Camp Beans
Ingredients (adjust according to amount of meat):
· 2-5# cans Van deCamps pork & beans.
· 5-10 pounds boneless country style pork ribs (enough to fill up a 9X13 baking pan)
· 3 small cans tomato sauce (or substitute catsup or BBQ sauce)
· 1/2 cup vinegar or to taste
· 1 and 1/2 cups brown sugar
· 2 clove garlic freshly pressed
· 2 finely chopped onion
· Black pepper to taste
· Pinch red pepper
* I also added 2 cups of Maple Syrup to the Pork & Beans later in the recipe.
Trim the fat off the meat. Combine the tomato sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, garlic, onion, black & red pepper. Mix the meat in the sauce until it is well coated. Let it marinate in this sauce over night. Place the meat into a baking pan and bake in oven at 300° for approximately 3 hours or until the meat flakes apart. When done take meat out of pan and let cool. Pull (do not cut ) the meat apart into small chunks.
Pour one can a the Pork & Beans inta a very large aluminum bakin pan (or use 2 pans if'n ya needs to), pour 1 cup of the Maple Syrup into the Pork & Beans and mix in. Now Sir...put the pulled pork meat and any left over marinade onto this layer of beans. Now...pour the other can a Pork & Beans, and the other cup of Maple Syrup over this, mix in, and put it back inta the oven and bake fer 1 hour at 350 degrees.
Top with chopped onion and chopped crispy bacon. Serve with hot rolls or biscuits.
Well Sir...upon cruisin through some a the other blogs on this here fine day...it seems that some of them were a bit on the "heavy" side...so...gettin back to food & stuff...heres a good recipe fer y'all...
This is kinda simple...but good & tasty...and a nice change fer a Wednesday.....
6-8 large chicken breasts, (or one whole chicken—cut up)
3 teaspoons Oregano
2 teaspoons Kosher Salt
½ teaspoons Pepper
7-8 Garlic cloves…thinly sliced
2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
6-8 Cups cooked Rice..OR..1 package Rice a Roni
Chicken-Garlic Flavored rice.
First off…mix the Salt, Pepper and Oregano together, set aside. Coat a large bakin pan with some of the oil and place the Chicken pieces in the pan.
Now…usin the Oregano rub mix and garlic slices…coat the surface of chicken pieces…IMPORTANT…Peel back the breast skins and put the rub mix and a few slices of the garlic under it and replace skin. Put the remaining rub and garlic slices on top of the breast skins. Now sir…pour a little Lemon Juice over each piece.
Refrigerate the chicken fer about 2 hours. Get yur oven up to 350 degree’s….drizzle the remaining Olive Oil over the chicken and bake fer about 45-60 minutes, or until the pieces are a nice golden brown. Make sure to baste the pieces twice or thrice with the drippins. Serve over the cooked rice (I like the Rice a Roni)
In WWII...our greatest secret...which became our greatest WEAPON...was the Atomic Bomb development going on in "The Manhattan Project". During the cold war...one our Secret WEAPONS was the U-2 Spyplane...and in more modern times...the Secret WEAPON was "Stealth Technology".
Notice the emphasis on the word WEAPON. In today's hard fought War on Terror...the New York Times...probably in an effort to discredit or embarrass the Bush Administration... revealed another Secret WEAPON.... our method and ability to track finances that were/are....Financing the various terrorist organizations throughout the World...
This technique and program was/is...in fact...a Secret WEAPON ...yet...its existence and methodology were revealed for all terrorists throughout the world to see...and to immediately cease using their normal money transferring channels....
I submit...that if the previously described weaponry information had been made public in WWII, the Cold War..or our "Stealth Technology"...the person or organization involved would be investigated and/or arrested for TREASON...and should be appropriately hung if convicted of such!
...As a Disabled Vietnam era veteran...a Retired Police Sergeant...and as a citizen of this great nation...I am calling for an Official Investigation by the Attorney General's Office of the United States of America into this most grievous matter....
I personally...consider the public disclosure of this WEAPON in the War on Terror...as TREASON...and it should be treated as such........Cookie....
Well Sir...this here Cookster just a been cookin up a storm fer that last few days...had two grandchillin graduated....one frum High School...with Honors...and the other frum Kindergarten...
So's.....we combined and had one big party fer the two of em and I served up enuff Marinaded Chicken, Salt Potaters, Macaroni/Tuna Salad, Hot Dogs and Hambergers fer about 45 folks...man...I'm whipped.....
Now...fer those a you outside a New York State...yur probly not familiar with Salt Potatoes...but what they be are #2 potatoes boiled in 14 oz of Salt (Sea Salt's the best)...fer about 25 minutes..or till fork tender.....then served with melted butter...mmmmboy...cain't beat em ya cain't...
...and the Chicken...hell thats simple also...ya just par-boil up a batch of chicken (NO longer than a 15 minute boil)...put em in big marinadin container and pour in a ton of Kraft Zesty Italian dressin....and lets em soak fer a day or two...then BBQ em up on a low heat.....Mmmmboy again.... now the downside is...figurin 2 pieces a chicken fer 45 folks...that be a whole lot a par-boilin & BBQ'n t'do......
...Then let the celerbratin begin......
...I be a gettin back atcha after I cleans up this huge mess that's the result of all the eatin and party'in.......Cookie....
