Beware of TURD

Do You Know Someone Suffering From Trump Unacceptance & Resistance Disorder (TURD)?

TURD is a pattern of pathologically dissociative and psychotic behavior, first observed in the late hours of November 8th 2016, and increasing in severity with passing time.

Sufferers of TURD often exhibit pronounced cognitive dissonance, sudden bouts of rage, rioting, and uncontrollable crying.
Infected with TURD 
People with TURD are characterized by a persistent unwillingness to accept that Donald Trump is going to Make America Great Again.

TURD Is caused by the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States of America. For many, both in America and worldwide, this was a shocking and unexpected outcome; their preferred news sources having failed to inform them that the alternative candidate was a criminal parasite.

Research is ongoing, but TURD appears to correlate closely with some of the following environmental and behavioral factors:
* Membership in the Democratic Party
* Identifying as a Feminist
* Currently enrolled in college, and/or Possession of a Liberal Arts college degree
* Living in a densely populated metropolitan area
* Massive student debt
* Spotty or non-existent work history

Patients with TURD are very resistant to treatment, and dangerous in large groups. Any possibility of treatment requires that they be separated from their hive-mind support apparatus; they cannot begin the process of accepting reality in the presence of encouragement towards delusion and irrationality. 

Separation may require the assistance of law enforcement.

If you have a friend or loved one suffering from TURD, urge them to seek treatment. Together we can beat this scourge, and Make America Great Again.

I really don't think treatment is possible only time may heal. Of course if they exhibit violent tendencies report to the police as possible terrorists.

I'm so Excited

It looks like I may get a new nephew or niece. 

I suspect however that because Mark is old, single, and she is young with a government job, that he will get free health insurance until Medicare kicks in. 

24 months times at least $1200 a month......good score Mark. Well played Mr. Podlin. Cash flow positive. Cha Ching! 

If only my FIL were alive to see this. He'd be proud.

2016 Well, Bye.

What a shitty year. Put a fork in it. Welcome 2017.

The after election blame game. It's not longer a vast right wing conspiracy.

I love the lines and simple setting. 

I Don't Much Care For...

Conch fritters. I'd rather eat a hush puppy.

Fried onion rings. I think I should like them but I don't. One day I may like them. 

Here's a big one. Ice cream. I can take it or leave it. 

Mac and cheese.....not really. 

Avocados, no. You can keep them.

Homemade Seafood bisque. Shrimp with crab.

This is our first attempt and it is fantastic. 

Beat Up Monday

I woke at 2am Monday morning with a pounding pain in my jaw. 

The one in the middle was abscess.  After a while the funk rolled up in my mouth like a shrimp boat in summer that collided with a septic tank truck. He found the first root. 

The second hit came an hour later. Then he quit.

I'll have to get back in the chair December 12 to finish. Oh boy!

Three More Reasons Not to go into Space

The toilet. It complicated and breaks often. You've got to float with your pants off and hit a plastic bag. It requires further processing manually. It's all state of the art. No thanks.

The food. This is the food now and this is good compared to what is coming. Here the astronaut shows off Thanksgiving turkey and dressing. 

Deep space long duration mission food turns out to be wild bird protein bars. Enough calories and nutrients to keep you alive with minimal body waste excreted. Yum yum!  I think I'll pass. 

The water. Scientists are excited because "they think" this is an area of frozen water under the surface of Mars.  Imagine if you get there and it's just dried dirt like it appears to be? Again, no.

Never underestimate succotash. It goes especially well dredged through mashed potatoes.


How To Spin A Turkey



The annual hype is upon us. I'm referring to the faux panic written every season about cooking one damn meal consisting of a baked turkey. I will do his herb encrusted rotisserie turkey. 

A few weeks ago I spun this turkey on Jekyll Island with just salt and pepper. 

I have some great herbs to cut and blend with salt and butter.
