“How about a nice game of Chess?”

“We’re fools whether we dance or not, so we might as well dance.” ~Japanese Proverb

That anyone is surprised by the College bribery scandal is the real surprise! Money buys access, grades, and forgiveness from crimes at all the top universities, and has since they were founded. (just like our government)

I’m too hot! (hot damn!)

HAPPY BICYCLE DAY! Bicycle Day is an international holiday that commemorates the date that Dr. Albert Hofmann first bicycled home from his lab after dosing himself with LSD in Basel, Switzerland on April 19, 1943. (“Buy the ticket, take the ride.”)

TravelTuesday! Dear Friends, before you book a cruise PLEASE read about Cruise Safety and emergency preparedness! The giant cruise ships don’t have enough lifeboats for all the passengers and crew! Many of their emergency drills are conducted on calm seas, and in an emergency many are not prepared for a real disaster at sea!

“It Was A Very Good Beer”
Well, beer, we’ve had some great times
When I was seventeen,
I drank some very good beer
I drank some very good beer
I purchased with a fake ID
My name was Brian McGee
I stayed up listening to Queen
When I was seventeen

SERIOUSLY! THIS IS THE 21st CENTURY! The BOYCOTT IS BACK!

And the Dodgers Boycott Continues in 2019! We’ve been a Dodgers fan since the early 1970’s and we still can’t watch the regular season games on television! We’ve been boycotting the Dodgers, Time-Warner (now Spectrum) and SportsNet for five years now. Do not spend a penny on any Los Angeles Dodgers’ tickets/food/merchandise until the games are televised!

“Meanwhile scientists are still trying to figure out why a circular pizza
is served in a square box and eaten in triangles.”

WATCH OUT FOR RATTLESNAKES! And watch out for your dogs too!
(this is mostly for my friends in the warm southwest)

“For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone.” Psalms 103:16

The Who!
Then and Then.

Right now I’m hoping for a high speed pursuit. Have a happy weekend!

Banana Daquiri

BANANA SIMPLE SYRUP

  • 2 bananas, peeled and cut into 1/2-in.-thick slices (about 1 1/2 cups slices)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water

DAIQUIRI

  • 3/4 cup (6 oz.) light rum
  • 6 tablespoons fresh orange juice (from 1 or 2 oranges)
  • 6 tablespoons Banana Simple Syrup
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice (from 2 limes)
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 2 tablespoons (1 oz.) Cointreau or other orange-flavored liqueur
  • 2 cups ice
Step 1

Prepare the Banana Simple Syrup: Combine banana slices, granulated sugar, and water in a small saucepan over medium-high. Bring to a simmer, stirring often and gently mashing banana pieces slightly, until sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, and let cool to room temperature, about 30 minutes. Pour mixture through a wire-mesh strainer, stirring to remove as much syrup from solids as possible without pressing on solids. Discard solids. Refrigerate syrup in an airtight container up to 1 week.

Step 2

Prepare the Daiquiri: Process rum, orange juice, Banana Simple Syrup, lime juice, bananas, Cointreau, and ice in a blender on high until mixture is smooth and icy, about 30 seconds. Pour into 2 frozen 16-ounce glasses, and serve immediately.


Navy Grog

  • 2 tablespoons dark Jamaican rum
  • 2 tablespoons light Cuban or Puerto Rican rum
  • 2 tablespoons gold Demerara rum
  • 1 tablespoon white grapefruit juice
  • 1 tablespoon ginger-honey syrup or simple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 ice cone
Step 1

Combine the rums, Ginger-Honey Syrup, grapefruit and lime juice in a cocktail shaker. Fill with ice; cover with lid, and shake vigorously 30 seconds. Place frozen ice cone in a chilled rocks glass. Strain drink mixture over frozen ice cone or crushed ice.

Step 2

Ice Cone: Firmly pack finely crushed ice into the bottom half of a 7-ounce plastic-lined paper cone. Pour in just enough water to cover ice. Place, upright, in a narrow freezer-safe glass, and freeze until completely firm, about 8 hours. Tear paper from frozen ice cone and use immediately.

BB_NAVYGROG_wbox_0033

Tightly pack metal mold with finely shaved “snow” ice. (make snow ice by running crushed ice through a food processor or a Sno-Cone maker) Then run the poking rod through the center to make a hole for the straw. Gently remove ice cone from the metal mold, and place upright in freezer. (Repeat and make as many cones as desired) Let cone freeze for a minimum of 4 hours, until frozen solid. When ready to use, remove a cone from freezer and slide a straw through the hole.

NOTE: Rumor has it that when the Navy Grog was first served in Hollywood, Frank Sinatra claimed it as his favorite drink. Chances are, Frank would’ve liked it even more on the beach. Traditionally made with three types of rum, the Grog is no small drink—but sipping it through a frozen snow cone makes it a little more fun.

Dirty Pirate Popsicles

62016649_2887092484650632_3806587350750855168_n

Ingredients:
2 1/2 cups Coke
1/3 cup Captain Morgan Spiced Rum
1/3 cup Kahlua

Instructions:
Mix ingredients in a large glass and stir to combine. Pour mixture into popsicles mold.
Freeze for about 2 hours until mixture starts to solidify enough to hold a popsicle stick upright. Insert popsicle sticks and finish freezing popsicles overnight. To release popsicles run hot water on the outside of popsicle molds for a 2-3 seconds.

*Slightly flat Coke will produce a popsicle that stays frozen longer. To quickly and manually flatten out the carbonation, empty out enough Coke from a 2-liter bottle to leave a 3-inch space from top of bottle to top of coke. Place cap back on and shake vigorously for 10 seconds. Set aside to leave bubbles to subside.
