Saturday November 24th – Open Thread

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †

        “an apple”

        P.S. Human tradition. According to the bible, it was a grape (the “vine tree”). Here is one significant passage:

        Numbers 6:1 ¶ And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
        2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When either man or woman shall separate themselves to vow a vow of a Nazarite, to separate themselves unto the LORD:
        3 He shall separate himself from wine and strong drink, and shall drink no vinegar of wine, or vinegar of strong drink, neither shall he drink any liquor of grapes, nor eat moist grapes, or dried.
        4 All the days of his separation shall he eat nothing that is made of the vine tree, from the kernels even to the husk.

    Guess who had real home made BACON? After curing for seven days, and smoking for three hours it was BACON! Mmmmmmmmm, oh, you still had to fry it, filling the whole house with that wonderful BACON smell….. My smoke generator was a fail, but I just kept it going, third’s the charm! Even my husband said it was pretty good for a first try at something so complex. *sighs I persist. Because, at the end, you have BACON! 😄

      “My smoke generator was a fail, but I just kept it going, third’s the charm! ”

      For years I wanted to convert an old refrigerator into a smoker. After doing a little research, I decided to get a commercially manufactured unit to eliminate the “trial and error” of a home-made contraption.

      One of our Treepers uses a Bradley unit that uses pre-made briquets for the ultimate in simplicity and control. However, I did not want to be bound to one manufacturers pellet offerings, so i do have to empty and fill pans. But I can utilize the apple, cherry and pear wood I have available right here.

      I bought the digital controller upgrade for my unit to reduce the constant monitoring needed with the old analog on/off. However, due to complications here last summer because of my mother’s stroke and CHF, I have not installed it yet.

      Mom is doing fine. She went for a Doppler evaluation on her neck arteries this week -everything is clear. In a few weeks she goes back to the Ophthalmologist to check her vision. She lost some of it at the top of the field of vision, which some people get back over time.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

      I never saw a Betta with a blue body and cream/orange-ish colored fins. I wonder if that was real or Photoshop. Could be real, the breeders are coming out with new ones all the time.
