20 Minutes of Eva Longoria Sewing, While Talking About Sewing

I'm mildly ashamed to admit that I know what a serger is. I blame a woman. And society.

Bookworm on the Death of her Mother

We are responsible for our own happiness. A point I've hammered home relentlessly every time I've spent extended time with my Mom is that we are responsible for our own happiness. My mother, bless her heart, wanted me to be responsible for her happiness, and I couldn't do that. I could give to her and be there for her up to a point.  After that point, though, my time was used up and my emotional well was dry.

Faced with the burden of "you're the only thing that makes me happy," I too often ran away. That meant that I didn't have that lunch with her or take her on the shopping trips she loved so much. I knew then that I'd feel guilty when she died, and I do feel guilty, but the reality was that I kept drawing lines lest I get sucked into her overwhelming unhappiness.

My mother certainly had reason to be unhappy. Her parents had a miserable marriage and, when they divorced, left her to raise her sister in a home with minimal money. She and her sister spent almost four years in a Japanese concentration camp. After surviving WWII, they were pitched into the Israeli War of Independence. Then, when life was settling down, my Dad got restless and dragged her to America, when she would have been perfectly happy staying in Israel.

Despite spending the largest part of her life in America, Mom always felt like a foreigner. My Dad, a good man, wasn't a good breadwinner, and my mother chafed endlessly under the restrictions of genteel poverty and, as she got older, the fear of a truly penurious old age. The fact that, when old age came it was not penurious but, thanks to her scrimping and saving, comfortable (though not lavish) couldn't assuage those deep fears. A mixture of serious health problems and acute hypochondria magnified her fears. No wonder my Mom was always miserable. . . .

Except that . . . Mom could have seen her life through a very different prism. It was a life of epic adventures, triumph over adversity, the love of family and friends, and a financially pretty-darn-secure old age, with the best medical care available in a country that offers the best medical care in the world. Yes, bad things happened, and yes, she had pain, but she always landed on her feet to great applause.

Mom was born in the age of Flappers and died in the time of smart phones. She lived in Europe, America, and the Far East. She saw empires rise and fall. She had a knack for making friends. She had children and grandchildren who loved and respected her. If only she could have appreciated the happiness spread before her.

35 It was joked tonight that the call to unity under the Trump banner was like the invitation from the Borg--"lower your shields and surrender. You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile." And perhaps so.

I really haven't watched much of the campaign--I've followed it closely on the 'intertubes', but not on TV. Every time I see Donald Trump, I got a little better idea of the groups he was used to speaking to, and working around, and serving as an outside leader for (because you start out with what worked out in the past). Two weeks or so, when I really started watching, I figured out at least some of the groups he talks to.

He doesn't just mob-coddle.

My view, right now, is that it is best to blow up the ship this fall, to prevent the infection to spreading to all of conservatism--to the only significant movement that says the rules are important in and of themselves, that the law is a lovely thing in and of itself, and if the man gets elected, maintaining a dignified independence, because he actually is stupid enough to think he will get away with stuff.

57 Genteel ONT greetings, Horde!

Just put a 15 qt. pot of chicken soup in the fridge, it's been simmering 'bout since 4 pm.

Second heating tomorrow, it promises to be a helluva good batch.

Gotta ask the assembled wisdom of y'all here though.... I was able to skim off nearly a pint of perfectly yellow, clean and tasty chicken fat, after I'd simmered the carcasses down yesterday.

I'd like to use it towards making a good chicken stock to buttress the store-bought paste stock on hand.

Any recipes or recommendations? Thanks!

158 I was able to skim off nearly a pint of perfectly yellow, clean and tasty chicken fat, after I'd simmered the carcasses down yesterday.

I'd like to use it towards making a good chicken stock to buttress the store-bought paste stock on hand.

Any recipes or recommendations? Thanks!

Chicken fat is not a component of chicken stock. Stock is made from the bones and connective tissue, and has the consistency of gelatin when cooled.

Fat is just, well, fat. You can melt it again and evaporate some of the water, salt it and use it as a spread...then it's called schmaltz. It can also be used to make potato pancakes or matzo balls.

It reminds me of this one Dutch woman's experiences in WWII in the Dutch East Indies interred as a child. She managed to build a life after that but a damn inside would not release until decades later she met a young Japanese woman. And that started a conversation as it were and she was finally able to move beyond her years in that Japanese camp.

213 HTL....thanks.

Alas, in the making of the soup, I toss in a pair of roasted chicken carcasses, as well as all of the pan drippings from their having been roasted.

By time they go through a six to eight hour low simmer, I'm able to pretty much take the bones down to bare calcium....all the good stuff goes into the soup.

I'd have to dedicate a future carcass or two in order to have the bones and connective on hand to reduce to stock, and I'd rather have the soup.

So, store bought (commercial, actually) paste, it is. Bullion cubes are for folks that don't know where to buy a good paste stock.

Only reason I'd like to make my own, is to make it less salty. Not for "health" reasons, but so I can more fully control the flavor profile as I build up the soup in the pot.

The fifteen quart is my small batch. I can scale it up to a sixty quart batch, but that's a lot easier in a commercial kitchen than on a home range.

Damn good stuff though. Enough seasoning to make a Cajun smile, but not so much as to be a heat-fest.

Cheap as hell to make, too. That pot will be meals for two, for nearly a week, all for about $5 cost above the chickens, which were actually full meals on their own in the preceding weeks.

Wish I could e mail some to Teh Horde.

Roasted chicken carcasses are great for making very flavorful broth/soup. To make stock, uncooked bones are best.

If you spatchcock your chickens before roasting them, take the backbones and freeze them. When you have 4-6 of those, throw in some raw chicken wings and then do your multi-hour simmer. You will wind up with a very thick stock, which you can freeze in small batches to use in stews and gravies. Before Thanksgiving I do that with turkey wings, which is why we never run out of gravy.

I definitely agree with you about keeping salt to a minimum. You want a little just to help as a preservative, but it is better to have the flexiblity to salt to taste later, when preparing the final dish.

244 That is something serious to think about that Bookworm wrote about.

Amen. My mother and her older sister were a lot like Bookworm's mother in that they demanded that other family members "make them happy." They didn't have half the hardships that Bookworm's mother survived, but they nonetheless expected others to cater to their every whim while being at the same time relentlessly critical of those of us who did try to please them. It took me years to figure it out, but I finally came to understand that they didn't really want to be pleased, they simply used their unhappiness as a tool to manipulate and control the rest of the extended family. That insight finally freed me from their head games.

Short story I remember from grade school: "Hannah is a Palindrome."

I suspect that two significant restrictions are: (1) it is easy to pronounce with the family's native phonetics system; and (2) it is unambiguous under the family's native phonetics system. If "Susie" can mean "dog", I doubt it would be a favored 'American' name.

When I was seriously younger, I went to a strip club in Tulsa once - well, not really a strip club because the laws said you couldn't disrobe, so they'd dance, duck behind a curtain, come back out with less on. Also, they never got nude because nipples and the triangle had to be covered.

But, anyway, there was this dancer I got to talking to who was kinda farm-gal muscular and had too many tattoos. Found out her name was International Harvester Travelall.

Downed my beer, skeedaddled out, and never entered a gentleman's joint again.

376 You may recall that the fiancee manages a tech support deportment and recently received 60-days' notice of being laid-off. Her department is headquartered in Mountain View, but has a branch office in the NC Triad. Her company recently got bought by a company in LA.



The phone guys are supposed to be doing phone work overnight to get things to work together, so she's going in at 6 AM tomorrow so that there will be a manager on duty to ensure that things happen for tech support. Nobody asked her to do this; nobody thought this might be an issue; nobody else has the contacts to get fixers to what breaks.




Her ex-company is going to be so fucked.....but as long as it means we move to somewhere sane, I will be extremely happy.

There is a Luap Nor effect there with the Trump votes, so I just leave them out and look at the relative values of the tail end. About ten on-line polls, throwing out the outliers*:
3% Catshit

5% Rubio

9% Cruz

*A few outliers did show that some Cruz fans are getting their Luap Nor on. Other than that, a pretty tight group for a bunch of folks with no lives up too late.

My background is in accounting, finance, and auditing -- there is work for me everywhere. Spending some decades in Silicon Valley, I have a certain techno twist.

The issue is with the fiancee. She went through a bust in Houston right before she moved here and thinks Silicon Valley is the always-and-forever "happy place", while I see it as a boomtown that is going bust.

391 But seriously, in my wayward yute, I once was in this nudie bar, with not many guys there, so I had a kind of private stage, watching a rather nice-looking lass wiggle and strut, as not-happy-looking as a runway model, distant and into her role.

I proceeded to tip her a $5 (I was no cheap $1 guy!) when I noticed a $50 in her collection, and I commented, "Whoa, a $50!"

She immediately dropped out of character, stopped wiggling, smiled, and became like my sister cousin or something, all personable and real, while utterly unselfconscious about her nudeness. "I know!" she exclaimed, and talked about how some guy dropped that on her.

It was funny. I never could get into the eroticism of such places because that would happen. They were all like my sister cousins.

And I do have a young first cousin once removed who was a nude dancer, before she served in the army in Korea, Iraq, and Afghanistan. Mechanic in the motor pool. Wasn't actually in combat, but faster on the draw than many of the guys. Um.. never saw her "dance."

Good night, Gracies.

I did extensive research and developed a shortlist -- whereupon the fiancee didn't want to talk about it. From memory, this included the NC Triad, eastern and central TN, Georgia a sufficient distance from Atlanta, parts of TX that I shared with Carol when she was talking about it [so probably includes Marble Falls], and certain parts of AZ (this may not be exhaustive).

With her business connection to the Triad and unwillingness to discuss the issue head-on, it's become the favorite. I'd slightly prefer TN. But compared to NY, Chicago, or the Califuckitya in which I currently reside, I can be flexible.

When we went to the oral surgeon for the consult, he did mention that could be a long term result if it wasn't fixed... that and his teeth would wear out really quickly and they would never be able to put in crowns (or fit dentures) with his jaw like that.
So basically, it needed to be done if son2 wanted to be able to chew food when he was middle aged.

426 Bone marrow transplant? Yikes! Did everything turn out ok?
Posted by: redbanzai
------------------
With my first nephew, not so much.

But after many years, Sis decided to try again & had another boy. Unfortunately, same disease (disorder?) - so docs were looking for it. Eventually, they settled on bone marrow transplant as
I think k he was maybe 7 or 8? His big sister was the hero. As I understand it, the donor goes through SO much more pain in that process. And she was maybe 12?

He's a healthy know-it-all college kid now, and she's a beautiful, happy young Mom herself. And a successful nurse. All is well on that front.

But their stepdad is dealing with a type of bone cancer now. Some days, I just cry thinking of what my sister has been through, and continues to deal with...
Unlike me, she never lost her faith in God, though.

Instead of having the first stage make a tricky thrust-controlled landing on a small barge, why not have a barge with extendable arms that would deploy a large net, say 50 yards in diameter? First stage descends, hovers maybe 30 feet above the net, checks are made to ensure it is on-target, and cut the engines. Plop into the net it goes.

I guess you could say I'm batting .500?
I won the fight with the row of 10ft tall holly bushes/trees, but lost the skirmish with the six-pack of Sam Adams.

Tomorrow, though.

437 Instead of having the first stage make a tricky
thrust-controlled landing on a small barge, why not have a barge with
extendable arms that would deploy a large net, say 50 yards in diameter?
First stage descends, hovers maybe 30 feet above the net, checks are
made to ensure it is on-target, and cut the engines. Plop into the net
it goes.

THAT, and in the dark ages they had these things called parachutes that could be used for a 100 yard drop.
Then again, do they still make asbestos thread for rope?

Haha. Don't worry, I have 2 full weeks here before I have to pack up and head North. I figured I was going to get several dozen studs in place for my framing project. Job One was to place the doubled-up 2X6 studs for the door frame. Uh-oh! Door isn't hung in a frame. Rush out, buy some 1X6, cut pieces to make door frame. Uh-oh, need to rout recesses for hinges. Call friend, "yeah, I have a router you can use. Give me half an hour, and you can come over." Well, might as well replace the blown exhaust flange gasket on the Suburban. Five-minute job, doncha know? Crawl under, get the flange undone, 5-minute job. Fit up new gasket from Rock Auto. "Shit! It's an inch too small. Spend a half-hour on phone with guy from local Autozone. Both of us in front of computers. We determine that my '97 truck uses a flange gasket catalogued as for '98 models. He orders it in to the local store. So I button up the gasket-less flange, got to buddy's place, and rout the hinge recesses. Then it was necessary to have a beer. Went back, assembled the door frame, ticket-boo, and now I had dimensions to frame the studs for the door opening in the wall. Uh-oh! The wall is not square! Have to cut tapered 2X6's to make a plumb opening in a non-plumb wall. Total number of studs actually erected: 2.


But I'm getting there.

Back in the day of truly cost-is-no-object, why-the-hell-not American engineering, there were proposals to have spent Apollo-Saturn first stages plucked out of the air, as they fell to earth after launch, by helicopters. To be brought back for refurbishment and reuse.

Freaking YUUUUUUGE helicopters, as one might imagine.

You probably could get the needed permits to use asbestos in that application, since it's not a consumer product. Also, long-fiber asbestos, as would be used to weave nets, is pretty benign. The short-fiber stuff is what is linked to cancer.

441 With my first nephew, not so much.



But after many years, Sis decided to try again had another
boy. Unfortunately, same disease (disorder?) - so docs were looking
for it. Eventually, they settled on bone marrow transplant as

I think k he was maybe 7 or 8? His big sister was the hero. As I
understand it, the donor goes through SO much more pain in that process.
And she was maybe 12?



He's a healthy know-it-all college kid now, and she's a beautiful,
happy young Mom herself. And a successful nurse. All is well on that
front.



But their stepdad is dealing with a type of bone cancer now. Some
days, I just cry thinking of what my sister has been through, and
continues to deal with...

Unlike me, she never lost her faith in God, though.

Posted by: Chi at March 11, 2016 02:18 AM (Ql/gh)

I am so sorry to hear that your oldest nephew didn't make it but it is good they figured things out to help your sister's youngest? I have also heard that bone marrow donors get the brunt of the pain in that exchange so your niece truly is a hero.

The amazing thing about God is He doesn't leave you even when all you can do is rail at him. I strive for "it is well with my soul" but their have been times that just wasn't happening. Yet God remained through all my recriminations.
I will keep your brother in law in my prayers for healing and your sister there for strength and grace.

I shudder to think what will happen when I finally call the building inspector to to view my work. But they told me it is a non-bearing wall, (I'm basically filling in the gaps between the posts in an existing post and beam structure.) In point of fact, the new walls will bear some of the roof load, but they don't have to.

=====================

Don't know if it's just for the specific kind of bone cancer (CMML) my husband had, but when he got his bone marrow transplant his donor wasn't hacked into, she essentially went through a prolonged blood donation. Then they isolated cells from her blood, performed some adult stem cell voodoo, and transfused it into him.

#345 When I was seriously younger, I went to a strip club in Tulsa once - well, not really a strip club because the laws said you couldn't disrobe, so they'd dance, duck behind a curtain, come back out with less on. Also, they never got nude because nipples and the triangle had to be covered.


I don't frequent them anymore but when I was younger and lived 5 minutes from the Canadian border, this is why we always went to Canadian strip joints.

All of them are FULL strip and most of the girls aren't all tatted up. And lots of incredibly hot Eastern European babes (who are never tatted up.)
