Yeah, mostly "red", and Democrats often are of the conservative (and some darned prejudiced) variety; many moderate ones.

My dad was out of a rock-Republican mold with extended family of that stripe. He was moderately a "Roosevelt Democrat", a union man, and when I was a wee lad, JFK was his "hero" president. Dad was pretty prejudiced though. Later, I was aghast at his reaction to when George Wallace got shot. It was more emotional than when JFK was assassinated.

Yeah, that "red-lining" regarding blacks and residency vis-a-vis mortgages was a wide-spread practice in the northern cities.

But, I'll leave this be for now.

But Indiana is dry on Sunday as far as alcohol sales go :)

Good evening Quinny. Not a problem. I remembered you're posting by phone, and from others posting by phone it seems the phone will by "artificial intelligence" substitute characters to create typos.

DW, stay in touch for the El's Kitchen Spring Break, North American Tour. With a bit of luck we may ALL be able to enjoy a luncheon by skype or email. What fun!
Quinn, your thoughts. FC, you too.

Glad you (and Mrs.) connected to the kitchen. By my reckoning, your connection was about September? Have you been posting with Quinny and/or Flower Child before that?

Chat with my sweetie-lady right after that and head to bed.

That too. It's been referred to as the Cupertino affect, Apple being based there (it's a 3GS --- works well with my processor).

Years ago we went visit James Dean's grave and museum. The road trip home was The Great Indiana Cemetery Tour and some of my cohorts were upset they couldn't by beer.

Ditto that. I hope my email went through to Brighteyes. Once again issues with the phone since I had changed the email password.

I figured Ft Wayne. Any weekend in April/May works. I was thinking May 17-18 or even Memorial Day weekend for an extra day. Thoughts anybody? FC need us to firm up plans for flight arrangements. We have no other immediate plans yet for anything in spring so it's all good here.

September only came in when I asked about your daughter's wedding so you could join in the fun without conflict. Boomer suggested springtime which sounds like a good time if you have an opening. FC was gonna come in from Texas.

Could you work it?

Be it as an etiquette session in 4-H, or likely in Home Economics class in high school (nowadays it is called something else; back in the day the vast majority of students for "Home Ec" were girls but a smattering of boys would enroll too -- sometimes you just had to fill a scheuling hole when other courses weren't available):
Placement and orientation of utensils when finishing eating were taught. At local diner eateries, I am admittedly slack.
Somewhere in time, I did pick up the European use of fork and knife when cutting/eating. It's certainly more efficient!
i still have the pillow that i made in Home Ec class. lol
lil yellow but... lol

did i read u have a daughter that will be married soon? Congrats! when my D got married - at the end of the nite my hubby asked me why they never had the father/daughter dance, they did but it wasnt the "Daddy's little girl" song that my D chose but a Norah Jones song, he had NO idea. i felt SO bad for him, i knew she chose that song, but because it was Her "special" day, i didnt say anything about this orig song thats usually played and assumed she just wanted this song over that one. but turns out she didnt really know about that song and said she would have certainly used it. i felt so bad and to this day i regret not speaking up about it...
oh yeah, and IF u need reading glasses, make sure u dont forget them. my hubby forgot his and couldnt read the speach he wrote for her and being put on the spot like that he said he forgot some of the things he wanted to say.- poor thing..
:( lol
weddings can get a little stressful and crazy - have fun though!

Good point. Then again, not always, there are folk in South Africa
who have the tiniest of the black gene, and on the surface are white,
but because of their dna were not encouraged, let's say, to marry
a white person. Not enitely sure how that stands these days.

Dearest Cuz, it was assuredly long ago (3 years in Topix time is a very long time indeed!). And emphasizes that I'm been visiting your Kitchen since likely before Feb.'10, a significant piece of my time on Offbeat that goes back to Autumn '08.
"Time flies" :)
Are you in contact with Steve U.K.? He may have given a holiday greeting but I don't recall that. Hope all is great with him.
Your presence in this kitchen is awesome Cuz Luke...you bring us so much
knowledge and everyday stuff of interest also. My memory failed me on
Rick Steves I'm afraid. Can't store it all, lol.
Time does fly, you are so right.
I haven't heard a thing from SteveUK...more's the pity, indeed, hope all is well with him.
Enjoy Downton? Silly question I know, it's brilliantly done. Glad to see Dame Maggie Smith got an award last night.

Hello there PFfff...I must dig that book out again, there were a lot of home remedies that are more than just old wives' tales...people review
anything recommended and you can get a overall picture of whether it is worthwhile trying or not. Glad that your D found it worked on her's.
It's a handy thing to have in in the Winter..they still sell it here...
mind you, bit behind the times here!...:)
Our mom's knew what was good for us all right, in fact, I would still rub it on mine should the need arise.
