    "It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
    -Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

    Xmas Dinner Prep: White Rolls with Scallions

    This starts with my basic bread recipe.

    2 1/2 cups warm water (110 F)
    5 tsp yeast

    add yeast to water in mixer bowl then add chopped scallions



    1 Tbs salt
    6-7 cups bread flour (add about half in the mixer bowl with dough hook until dough starts to form, than add the rest a cup at a time.)

    Cover and let rise for 30 min. Punch down and form rolls. We topped these with fried shallots.



    I flash the oven to 100 F and place a bowl of hot tap water in also with the rolls for 30 min.

    Proofed and ready to bake. 450 F for 20 minutes.

    When she is not behaving, she does get that threat.

    Cockatoos have the intelligence of a 5 y.o. with the temperament of a 2 y.o., imagine that!

    That prime rib looks good
    'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
    delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
    promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
    holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
    possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

    A fear of weapons is a sign of retarded sexual and emotional maturity. Sigmund Freud
