  1. Oh God not that ferocious Jacksonville November Wind.......worse that that Oakland Autumn Wind........ The Autumn Wind is a pirate Blustering in from sea, With a rollicking song, he sweeps along, Swaggering boisterously. His face is weather beaten. He wears a hooded sash, With a silver hat about his head, And a bristling black mustache. He growls as he storms the country, A villain big and bold. And the trees all shake and quiver and quake, As he robs them of their gold. The Autumn Wind is a raider, Pillaging just for fun. He'll knock you 'round and upside down, And laugh when he's conquered and won.
  2. Oh BTW my wife's CHILI CON CARNE with KIDNEY BEANS and her special ORANGE ( not really yellow) BUTTERNUT SQUASH was really good but that's not a big surprise being that she's a true scratch cook but it did come out delicious. The butternut squash did give it a nice sweet mild taste that went along well with her Joe regular CHILI con Carne and Kidney bean chili. It wasn't really a hot chili or fireball chili taste at all. We don't really have a recipe for it YET she just threw it together kind of like how my grandmother cooked.......the best cook I've ever known. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ SO NOW THAT IS OVER WHAT IS EVERYONE HAVING FOR THANKSGIVING DAY ? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Traditional Thanksgiving Day fixins ? Turkey plus or maybe something else ? Oven cooked turkey or deep fried gobbler ? Ham, steak, your special day meal ? All grilled food ? Pasta ? Pizza ? Eating out ? Whatever it is take a few minutes in this crazy 2020 to give thanks for what really matters in this world. ~. Happy Thanksgiving to you all and have a great weekend. ~ And GO BROWNS ! (mmmmmmmm, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday football leftovers )

  20. Food can be very subjective varying from state to state or region to region and for sure county to county. Subjective - adjective 1. existing in the mind; belonging to the thinking subject rather than to the object of thought (opposed to objective). 2. pertaining to or characteristic of an individual; personal; individual:a subjective evaluation. 3. placing excessive emphasis on one's own moods, attitudes, opinions, etc.; unduly egocentric.
  21. I've never tried Cincinnati Chili but you can put chili over macaroni or other pastas as a thick spaghetti sauce with decent results. Adding cheese might be like putting cheese on chili or pasta. Try it ! -And- for a real quick, easy, economical meal grab some of the pasta you have on the shelf make it according to package directions. Open and heat can of chili and pour over the pasta when done. On top of everything add shredded cheese and maybe hot 🔥 pepper flakes. You have chili pasta ! Then bon appetit ! ( interjection French. (I wish you) a hearty appetite. )
  22. Hey jigs are you ready for some football ! Today 3 Sunday AFCN games and all at different times 1, 4, 8 pm, 11 hours enough to burn you out ! GO BROWNS, sic em.....baby !

    Browns shut down facility due to Covid

    Interesting points. Bernie Kosar who was from Boardman Ohio where I live now graduated in 3 years from the U and it did help Modell snag him in the supplimental draft. On another note Bernie's uncle worked at the same US Steel plant that I did way back when. His dad Bernie Sr was a genuine asshole and quit working when Bernie hit the big time managing his money..... which led to Bernie's financial troubles. Bernie's office where Sr hung out draining Jrs money was next door to my doctor's office in Boardman. I remember Bernie said once the best thing Sr ever did was pay for his sister's college tuition before the money was gone. Family or friends can be real assholes sometimes.
