Heh, I just pulled the version of that statement that I use on someone a bit ago:

If you can't baffle them with brilliance, befuddle them with sunshine.

I didn't play the game very well. I tend to tell it like it is.

The procedures are your friend.

I had a coworker that really grasped the separation of science/logic and policy. You do the job the people want (the lowest common denominator at that) and that is what you are paid to do whether you personally agree with it or not. If you were lucky, the science agreed with policy.

Good morning, all. Got the spot on the kitchen ceiling painted. There was a leak from the upstairs bath at one point I guess. I've caulked it and haven't seen anything new so I figured it was ok. Didn't match exactly but it's near good enough.

Upstairs is clean. Walk is done. Animals are fed. Almost bedtime.

Somebody is already pooped out from his night's adventures:




PS: Some of you might get a kick out of the video I posted in this thread.

Morning all.

First day back in the office. Boss says I can work from home more if I need to, so that's really nice. Don't think it will be necessary, but it's awesome to have it as an option.

Burying a body eliminates the possibility that it was an accidental death.

So does not calling 911 when you shoot someone.

Still single, can't imagine why.

You can always claim you panicked. Or didn't have cell service, if you really are in a national park.

Well, you could claim that is why you dug a grave and put the body in it as well.

Although that won't work in a national park, but if you get to the national forest, your back to good again.

Morning.

Mom called in crisis. This one actually needs attention. Leak in the bathroom.
Wants my brother in law, but he is busy. Won't ask neighbors about a plumber, because she figures he might rip her off. Not unreasonable with a old widow.

It also seems my step sister told her my husband will fix her blinds.
Swell. He is still working over time till the end of May. I don't see it happening. Mom is going crazy because she can't open one blind.

I mentioned the senior housing, run by nuns near her. It seems it is really nice. Plus it goes from independent living to full nursing home.
Horrible time to sell a house. Lots of the comps are foreclosures , which drive the prices down.

Why did step dad insist on moving when they were in their 70's and then die 3 years later? The taxes on this house alone would more than cover every expense on the house I grew up in. Plus all her friends are still there. Although they are all around 90 too.

WE LURV YOU TOO! Dork!!!
No greater love is lost than that not shared.

Just read a recipe for bacon jam.


Bacon plus cermelized onion and garlic. With pineapple, maple syrup. On toast. Or crackers.

Pardon me, I'm lost in the bacon.

onion, garlic, bacon... all good on toast... I'd feel the need to warm it before spreading though.

Bacon Jam

No clue if that will work, since that's on g+. Public post though, so maybe. Think Geek also sells bacon jam, but I think making it would be way more fun.

Hi everyone. Husband's golf league starts this afternoon. It's 48, feels like 44. Windy. He's going to freeze his ass off.

Yeah, that's why I wanted a link - I could just go over to skillet and grab a jar but that's easy.
