The REAL 'genius' of the Anti-Vaxxers isn't going to be seen for another 5-10 years ...

When they start looking forward to their precious grandchildren, and THEN ... ooops!


Mr L's Saturday Night Dinner ... Whole Chicken on the Barbie ...

I cleaned the excess skin, clipped the wingtips, spatchcocked her, brushed w/Olive Oil, dusted the outside with my dried 'Scarborough Fair' mix (do I have to tell ya?), cracked black pepper & kosher salt, and then shoved sprigs of fresh Thyme under her skin. She's cooking (indirect, of course) in the Weber Kettle, with soaked Oak and Hickory in the smoker box laid atop the coals.

Tonight I'm just eatin' barbeque chicken with a baked potato with butter/sc/chives, and some corn. Nothing too fancy.

But on the stove I got chicken soup brewing. Got the neck and back and wing tips in the pot, along with celery, carrot, italian parsley, 1/2 head of garlic, 5 green onions (just the thick part), a whole shallot ... seasoned with pepper corns, whole coriander, bay leaves, and a buncha fresh thyme. Letting that simmer for a bit then will refrigerate.

Tomorrow I'll strain it, put all the rest o' the bones from the chicken into it and simmer 4 more hours or so. Then strain again ... then cook in fresh carrot, celery, peas, some kinda starch ... noodles or potato most likely ... maybe orzo if I motivate to hit the store ... then shred in the remaining Hickory-Oak smoked barbeque chicken ... and have soup for the week.

Probably set a bit o' the meat aside and make a bit of chicken salad outta that, instead of putting it in the soup ... now that I think of it.

What are YOU making (or made) tonight?

greg holden - the lost boy (studio - 2011) - may they be found and reunited ...

I left my home still as a child
I walked a thousand sorry miles
To wait for my father to gather up his tools
He said my boy you've got to run
Don't wait for me, don't wait for mum
We'll come get you when it's safe for us to move

So I waited many years
Held back the pain behind my tears
For my father to come find me like he said
In that time I was alone
So many years without my home
I made brothers of a different kind instead

At the time I didn't know
Just how hard the wind could blow
Towards disaster, and the things that I would see
I never found my father
I never found my mother
Either will not know that in my lifetime I will be

A hero to the masses
To those born without chances
There's a freedom that everyone deserves
I know there's greed and there's corruption
I've seen death and mass destruction
But I'm telling you and I hope that I am heard

I will not be commanded
I will not be controlled
I will not let my future go on, without the help of my soul

justin johnson - rumblestrippin - since glam has a blues kick going tonight ;)

Some down and dirty shit right here ...

Man, the lack of knowledge on how to properly post links on DU really gets under my skin, sorry ...

Respected Friends ... if you're posting a link, and there's a ? mark character it it ... then the ? mark, and everything to the right of it ... is totally extraneous, and should be removed before posting the link.

Unless, you REALLY want the outlet from which you copied the link to get $$$ for everyone following the link from DU.

Apologies to the member who just posted this, no offense, cause almost everyone does this.

Compare these two links:


Note that both of these links 'work' exactly the same (although your address bar shows different info when you reach the site). However, the FORMER ... makes money for Twitter when we use it here on DU. The latter ... does not.

I'm not saying Twitter gets paid instead of DU, cause in fact it doesn't look like DU makes any attempt to get paid for click-thru's from what I can tell, but there's really no need for Twitter to get paid, is there?

This also applies in cases where you post JPG/PNG/GIF files, or Youtube videos, or whatever. In those cases you get a bunch of crap characters showing up after the picture or video on DU, and it just looks ugly, and adds nothing.

Everything that's in a link, from the question mark to the right of it ... if there is a ?, is EXTRANEOUS, and should be removed IMHO, when posting links. That is information coming from (wherever you copied it from) ... trying to get paid when their links are shared.

Also, for the Love of Dog, if your link says 'Google' in it ... you're almost surely doing it way wrong.

u2 - beautiful day, mlk, where the streets have no name (live - 2002 - super bowl)

Just because ... Well, Patriots/Rams ... and cause I never tire of watching these 11 minutes of perfection in rock and roll and United States history colliding ... it's first Super Bowl after 9/11 ... and Bono and the lads just absolutely own the moment, and IMHO, this was really a turning point in the grieving process for our Nation ... the denouement of the show still makes my eyes well up, cause I remember the feeling of that time so well.

Enjoy ...

fotzepolitic - cocteau twins (studio - 1994) - in honor of natures beauty ... a soaring song ...

Wish their wasn't so much compression on the youtube version (youtube was stricter on file sizes in 2008 I suspect), the sound quality on the original cd is phenomenal, but ... hey, it's free ... one of my all time fave songs from one of my all time fave records (heaven or las vegas).

headphones rec'd for the full experience

Fun fact, Cocteau's vocalist Liz Fraser is the (guest) vocalist on the song Teardrop by Massive Attack, aka 'Theme From the TV series House'

How about ... instead of building WALLS ... we just do THIS instead ???

Trump wants all the Federal Workers to stop showing up/quit, then they'll be replaced by Blackwater

and their ilk, or their jobs simply eliminated altogether.

He basically wants all the government workers who are now NOT being paid ... to have to quit, in order to find other jobs to feed their families. All their agencies will then be hollowed out, and their rank-and-file workers ... replaced by corporations, mostly contract work. And many of them FOREIGN, I'm sure.

IOW, the REAL goal is for Federal prisons, and the Air Traffic Controllers, and the TSA, and the Nat'l Park Service, and so on ... to be staffed by Corporations. Friendly to the GOP corporations, of course.

Regardless of whether it's true, eventually Democrats will reach the conclusion that this may well BE the real goal ... and decide they HAVE to cough up the $5B because it's not worth the kind of destruction involved.

We're not winning this one folks, not as long McConnell is going to act like a FUCKING TRAITOR, and the MSM is gonna play 'both sides' bullshit.

wilco - outtasite, outta mind (studio - 1995 - official video)

Power Pop Classic from Wilco's 2nd, Being There ... which was their first masterwork ... though this particular track is more fun than genius ...
