"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."
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.
-General Omar Bradley, United States Army

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.

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!'
