    Thought So

    One local lumber yard had a "no sorting " policy. Kinda sucked. Mostly they sell full bundles to contractors.

    Secrets of Gift Giving REVEALED

    I've done the jewelry on the stuffed animal thing several times. One year I put some stud earrings on the ribbon near the bow on a so-so gift. That almost backfired because she didn't notice them. My fault- I used to use fabric as wrapping paper and nice trim, often with metallic threads in it, as the ribbon. And, yes, the fabric and trim got used later.

    Georgian Trick Riders

    They were first-class horsemen from humble roots who left what was then a far-flung corner of the Russian Empire more than a century ago to perform in the United States. Their influence on Western riding culture has proved enduring.

    Obvious photoshop. We all know that reindeer can't hover.
  7. Sounds a lot like a poll tax, doesn't it?
  8. But they don't want to take away guns.
  9. This case may start reining in the alphabet soup regulatory agencies, including the BATFE Challenging Required Judicial DeferencePDR Network, LLC v. Carlton & Harris Chiropractic Inc. Why this is important to us is that it could possibly help rein in the out of control federal alphabet soup of regulatory agencies (i.e. unelected legislative bodies). Truth About Guns goes on about it here . Be warned - half of the embedded links in their article take you to Brownells. Give it a gloss, but search for PDR Network, LLC v. Carlton & Harris Chiropractic Inc on your own.

    too good to be true....or....trust me

    Open up one of the tunnels. Run some water down it. Toss in a handful of calcium carbide, run a little more water to wash it down the tunnel some. Toss a match in.

    Creamy or Chunky

    That one gets saved, thanks. As to the original question, creamy 95% of the time with chunky every now and then for some variety.

    Rolls for breakfast WITHOUT CINNAMON -WTH

    I agree - breakfast rolls without cinnamon comes close to anathema. I haven't made the first two I posted, but made similar ones. I have made the second two, although I used blueberries instead of raspberries.

    Yet Another Reason For Cursive

    Heck, I grew up in San Diego County. Snow is something you drive to, play in for a few hours, then drive away from. You pee at the gas station on your way home.

    You might also try Cranberry Orange Scones (helps if I embed the link) Ingredients Cranberry Orange Scone Recipe: 2 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 cup sugar + more for topping 3 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold butter 1/2 cup fresh cranberries 3/4 - 1 cup heavy cream 1 tablespoon orange juice 1 tablespoon orange zest Orange Glaze: 1 cup confectioner's sugar 3-4 tablespoons orange juice 1 tablespoon orange zest Directions Preheat oven to 400º F. Line a rimmed baking sheet pan with parchment paper or a nonstick baking sheet. For the scones: Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Add butter to the bowl and cut into the flour with a pastry blender until the largest pieces of butter are about the size of a pea and the flour mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in cranberries, 3/4 cup of heavy cream, orange juice, and orange zest. Press dough together between the palms of your hands. If it doesn't just hold together, add more heavy cream until is just holds together. Pour dough onto a lightly floured countertop or a pastry board. Pat dough into a large round disc, about an inch thick. Cut dough into equal sized wedges and place onto prepared baking sheet pan. Melt about 2 tablespoons butter and brush on top of dough. Bake scones for 20-25 minutes or until they are just beginning to turn lightly brown. Remove from the oven. Orange Glaze: Whisk all of the glaze ingredients together in a medium sized bowl until smooth and then drizzle on top of each scone after it has cooled for about five minutes. or Raspberry Oat Scones Ingredients 1 1/2 c. old-fashioned (rolled) oats, plus more for topping 2 c. all-purpose flour 1/2 c. sugar 1 tsp. baking powder 1 tsp. baking soda 1/2 tsp. salt 1/2 c. butter (1 stick), cut up, very cold 6 oz. raspberries 1/4 c. candied ginger, finely chopped 2 tsp. finely grated lemon zest 3/4 c. low-fat buttermilk Directions Preheat oven to 400°F; line large baking sheet with parchment paper. In food processor, pulse 3/4 cup oats until finely ground. Add flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt and pulse to combine. Add cold butter and pulse until coarse crumbs form. Transfer flour mixture to large bowl. Stir in raspberries, ginger, lemon zest and remaining 3/4 cup oats. Stir in buttermilk. With floured hands, gently knead until dough just comes together; do not overwork (dough will be sticky). On floured surface, pat dough into 12-inch-by-3-inch loaf. Cut into 4 squares; then cut each diagonally in half to form 8 triangles. With spatula, transfer scones to prepared baking sheet, spacing 2 inches apart. Garnish with oats. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer to wire rack; let cool.
