Good grief. My copy of Strunk and White is so old it's printed on birch bark. I loved that book.It is an old observation that the best writers sometimes disregard the rules of rhetoric. When they do, however, the reader will usually find in the sentence some compensating merit, attained at the cost of the violation.Alas, they say it right there in black and white, Operator is right, the rules may be disregarded. But I am owed some "compensating merit."

Thank you, thank you, alinnell for reminding me of that jewel.

My girls and I used to carefully watch Dad when we lived in a house with only 1 bathroom. If he grabbed the local paper, which was only like 10 pages, we could all relax. But, if he grabbed the Rocky Mtn. News or several magazines, we all climbed over each other trying to get to it before he took over. The 1 hour wait time and the 2 hrs. it took for the air to clear were just to much. There is not enough air freshener on the planet to cover what he did to the air quality.

Time to roll the windows down! I sure feel bad for middle school teachers (especially the ones that get him after PE). And will he use the two things of deodorant I bought him? Apparently not so much. I told him to take one to school to use before and after PE and use one at home after showers and when he gets dresses. I guess he does the after shower application, but that is all. GROSS!

Allison, it seems we are on similar paths in life when it comes to child rearing. Spooky stuff, I'd say!!! I was talking to my daughter about needing to find some kind of workout to do. She is totally uninterested. I told her that she should keep working out so that she can be in shape for track and volleyball. Got the eye roll. Her biggest worry at this moment is that she doesn't have a boyfriend. I told her that it is because she is too mean. ha! (she knows I was kidding)

While I know it is important stuff, I just can't watch the inaugural stuff. It is nothing against Obama or democrats... I wouldn't be watching if it were the republicans either. I'm so shallow. And I get bored easily.

Take out and put 2 T shredded cheese on top and place in oven until cheese melts

.she uses Rotel Mexican Lime and Cilantro diced tomatoes
I haven't seen this, but it sounds yummy.

Quick dinner idea

Frozen cooked shrimp (or leftover cooked chicken, pork, etc.)
chopped up garlic in a jar (optional)
chopped up ginger in a jar (optional)
onion - optional
pepper - optional
olive oil (can add sesame oil if you have it)
coleslaw mix
soy sauce (optional)
peanuts chopped up or a tsp peanut butter (optional)
Quick cooking brown rice in a bag (optional)

put the amount of shrimp you want to thaw in running cold water (in a bowl or colander)
Follow instructions for rice and put in microwave (mine calls for a quart of water and 10 minutes)
Put olive oil in a pan and heat
Cut up an onion and/or pepper if you have them and if you have time to cut them up. Add to pan.
Add garlic and/or ginger if you have it.
Add coleslaw mix (and onions and peppers) to the pan and stir until wilted.
Drain shrimp once it has thawed - minutes.
Add shrimp to pan and stir to heat through. Remove from heat as soon as food is warmed through.
Add soy sauce, peanuts, peanut butter (optional)

So this can be as simple as shrimp and cabbage stir fried and as elaborate as a 3 veggies and shrimp stir fried with a tasty ginger/garlic/peanut/soy sauce on brown rice. You can also add red pepper flakes if you like it spicy. Can take as little as ten minutes.

Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe

Saute sliced carrots, celery, onion in olive oil
add 1 can Rotelle diced tomatoes with lime and cilantro
add 3 to 4 cups of chicken broth
add 2 - 3 chicken breasts simmer about 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked
remove chicken, shread it, and put it back into pot

serve soup garnished with fresh chopped cilantro and tortilla strips/chips

You can use a rotisserie chicken if you like. When I do, I add it about 5 minutes before serving.

Ruth Rotel's varieties of tomatoes and chilies are pretty common here in California but you can use any brand of tomatoes and chilies combination. The one with the lime and cilantro just goes well with her soup, not many ingredients in the soup (which is how we like it - simple). The lime/cilantro adds that extra kick. She does put zucchini in it sometimes too.

As far as OPERATOR wearing garlic....I dunno....but the rumor I am spreading is....her breath, from sleeping in her truck, could blow things up...;)

You are all the greatest! Love getting up to read! Wish I could be more humorous...but to stressed right now to even get my shirt on the right way (inside out & backwards).

(Reminder to self fix before going out!) Also just noticing the little spell check...hmmm anybody download that tool?

Julia! I have NEVER noticed the spell check until you just mentioned it. Wow. I am so unobservant!

Operator, did you get some of this storm that's going through Colorado right now? We had rain overnight... a lot of rain! My hubby's uptight because now we have puddles all over out here (I live out in the country). Makes it hard to feed the animals when you have to wade through the mud and water puddles!

Trying to picture all of that Operator. How on Earth did you get your head in your lunch bag? That is the only part that miffles me, I can understand the other parts, just not the lunchbag. :dizzy:

OK, let's see. I put my coat across the center console so I wouldn't get switches jammed into my ribs, and laid my head against my lunchbag as a kinda pillow/prop type thingy, then curled my legs up on the driver's seat in the fetal position(musta gone "breach" in my sleep). How did my head wind up IN my lunchbag you ask. Well, I dunno.:dunno: I was asleep when that happened. :faint:

Slash-Gotta little rain. That's what messed up the haul roads last night. Doesn't look too bad so far. I had to take my coat off on the way home. But, I'm from WY. If the wind ain't blowing, it just ain't cold. Don't matter what the temp is.:D

And to think they allow her to handle :bomb: explosives :bomb:

Yeah, kinda the same reaction my X had when I told him I was going to be blasting. Then he started checking with his company about transferring to a job they have on the Arctic Circle off Australia. Seems he didn't think 8 hrs was enough distance between us for the next time he ticks me off.:devil: Specially since they're WY miles and I can do them in 3.5 when I gets me hackles up.:s:

As far as OPERATOR wearing garlic....I dunno....but the rumor I am spreading is....her breath, from sleeping in her truck, could blow things up...;)

Yeah, yeah, yeah. You just trying to get even with me for posting the pic of you in your bathing suit.:p Sorry dude. I've got about six of those little listerine keyring sprayers all over the place. 2 in lunchbag, 1 in work coat, 1 hidden on haul truck, 1 in pants pocket and 1 in car. Plus, a bottle of White Shoulders. I can't stand getting on the bus after work and sitting next to some stanky miner after a 12 hr shift. And it is always the guy with the worst breath that likes to talk right up in your face.:barf:

What happened to the "maybe get back together" thing?

Ok.. I give up..Where is the spell check tool?

That firemen recipe was soooo yummy! Thanks!

Opereator: You are just TOO funny!:rofl::rofl: I am concerned as are others that your regular or irregular sleep patterns are off. Do you really have a lunch when you are working graves? Wouldn't it be breakfast or dinner?

JuliaDH: Feel better! No stressing out! So what if you dress backwards and inside out. It will be a conversation starter for sure and you might even start a new trend. OH...That has already been done. Remember when shirts used to be made with the seams on the outside? LOL!

Operator~ Talent with a lunch bag... HAHAHAHA

Thanks for all the dinner ideas! Unfortunately my bf had ordered pizza when I got home and I gave in. I definetely plan on trying the chicken tonight though!

Pipes busted at BFs parents apartment building last night, sorry I missed all the yelling and the ceiling caving in on the guy next door while he was in the shower...

10 outside right now

Celine kinda reminds me of MJ in that pic... scary

Thanks Y'all. Just trying to find balance with home and new job. Lady I am aiding has absentee hubby and daughter has own life. Lady does not have enough people hired to do the job and now is asking me for more than I am able to commit. But I am sad, when she says that she does not want to live, angery that her family does not put her as priority. And my family has been spoilt with me being home full time for 8 years. They are struggling with me being gone 3 hrs here and there thru the day and most of the weekend etc. Just keep up the funnys then I will have something to look foward too! And that is the end of my downer post!

It is! Angie says that is the beauty of it. It is plain and simple...we both love it. Just make sure you have enough chicken in it. Angie frys corn tortillas (the only thing she frys in the house except tacos on occasion) then cuts them into little strips...we just add them as we eat the soup. She also makes a few cheese quesadillas too to go with the soup and cuts them into quarters. Great on a cool evening.

..... And that is the end of my downer post!

You are NEVER a downer with us dear...NEVER!! BILL says it isn't in the rules!

...260 to go.

I hope you like them BILL. Angie used to use the regular Rotel but by accident she used the lime/cilantro one for the soup and we just stuck with it, liking it better in the tortilla soup.

....

Well come on over! Seriously, Angie just made a bowl for herself.



That firemen recipe was soooo yummy! Thanks!
LOL!

Angie "snacked" on the firemen earlier...personally I don't see what they have that BILL and I don't....really, I don't see it....."Ang.....ANG....ANG!! I can't find my glasses!"
