RE: SPAM-a-lam-a-ding-dong

Spam. no lie, has saved my life!!! I have been eating Spam most of my 67 years. Fifteen years ago I started taking mission trips to Central America. Now if you have ever been to that part of the world you know that beans and rice is 90% of their diet, and I DO NOT eat beans or rice. In fact, I have started packing today for a trip to Belize, we leave early Friday morning. Along with clothes, I threw in five of the individual serving pouches of Spam. Lunch is usually on the go down there and Spam and a few crackers with a bottle of water makes a meal. The worst food I had served to me was in Nicaragua, and I sure was glad I had my Spam and jerky with me......

Heard a funny quote on the evening news last night

Local News Station airing a story about a local man who turned 100 yesterday. They told the usual stuff, married 73 years, a couple of kids, served in the Army during WW2 and so forth. They asked the usual question, "what do you attribute to your living so long?" He looked at the camera and with a Dead pan face, he answered, "just don't die". No better answer could have been given......

RE: Going Salt Water Fishing, at long last

hey guys, I am really amped on this fishing trip!!! Just hope the weather holds up, we only get one shot at it and the weather can be iffy in July. I had quad by-pass surgery in January, 2001, at the age of 52. I decided then if I am going to do anything in this world, I better get it done, nothing is guaranteed in this world. I started going on mission trips in March of 2003 to Honduras and Nicaragua and then eight years ago we planted a Church in Belize and I have enjoyed ALL of the trips, met some amazing people I will never forget. I have been thinking of slowing down for a couple of years but my youngest granddaughter at the age of 15 showed and interest in going on the mission trip and she LOVES it. She works with the pre-school age kids and has brought several of her friends with her and I could not say no to her when she asks me to keep coming also. She graduated from High School in May and goes off to college in September and may not make the Belize trip again, so what could I do....... This year our Fun Day was scheduled at the beginning of the week, not the last day when we are all worn out from the work and heat and humidity and I will be fresh and ready. I will take the necessary drugs and wear the bracelets to keep me from getting seasick. I do not really care if I do not catch anything, this trip is dedicated to my late brother who loved fishing more than I do.....

Going Salt Water Fishing, at long last

Not going to call it "deep sea fishing", but I am travelling to Belize next month and we have scheduled a day trip to fish in the waters around the barrier reef islands. I am 67 years young and have been land locked all my life. My brother and I planned three or four trips to salt water fish in the years past but never made it. Now he is gone and I thought I would never get a chance again. I have been travelling to Central America for over fifteen years and this will probably be my last trip. I have enjoyed the Mission trips but it is time to slow down. Five of us talked it over this winter and decided to use our "One Fun Day" fishing. Plans were made and the charter boat is on standby............

RE: The 1969 Draft Lottery, where were you & number?

You made me do a little research when you asked "1969 Draft Lottery". I did not think they started the Lottery until 1970, but according to Wikipedia, the first Lottery was held in December, 1969, for use starting January, 1970. I never had a Lottery number, just a Selective Service number and !-A classification. Do you know what that combination got you in May, 1969? Ding ding ding, you are the winner of an all expense paid trip to lovely Southeast Asia. Graduated High School in Msy, 1968. Kicked around for a year and drafted in May, 1969. I was 19 years and 3 months old. Did my tour and came home November, 1970. I was 3 months shy of 21 and had to take my Dad to the Package store to buy my beer........ It has now been 47 years and sometimes, I still smell the odors and hear some of the sounds. Peaceful sleep my brothers.......

Busy Weekend Ahead.......

Today, Wednesday it is supposed to start raining again. Calling for rain today and tomorrow, then turn off really nice and sunny for about five days. We wish we were camping this weekend but due to DW health, camping is put on hold maybe until the Fall. This coming weekend is a busy one for us though. Daughter is finishing her certification to be a Dyslexia Specialist in her School District that she teaches Third Grade in. She will be the only certified Specialist in the District. Our oldest Granddaughter, (her daughter), graduates from college with a BS in Middle Education. She is an Honor Student and made Deans List every semester of college. She is a second generation teacher. Youngest granddaughter, (not to be outdone by her sister or Mother), will graduate from High School in a couple of weeks, but she is having a Graduation Party Friday night. She has already been accepted at a Private College close to home in the Honors School. majoring in Special Education with a minor in Missions work, at least that is the plan. She will also be a second generation teacher. We are proud of all our girls. each have worked hard for their education with no or minimal financial help, so far. They sure didn't get from me, must be on the DW side.......

New Opener line for the Unsolicited Callers

I love to play with the pitchmen for sales calls. I now just answer the phone with "Open Arms Prayer request line, do you have a need we can help you with?". In two weeks all I get is silence and then a hang-up..... Can't pray with anyone.... :h

RE: Pancake in a Can

Some are missing the point, basically, I am LAZY, do not like to wash dishes AND, have very little storage in the small HI-LO. Small fridge, little crackerbox freezer. I would only make pancakes once while out camping, I am a bacon & egg guy. I am looking for something disposable and take up little space in the cabinet. I will keep looking for a solution.....

RE: Pancake in a Can

Dutchman, I could do that, but trying to eliminate anything to wash and store in our small trailer. I will try at home before I take it on the road. I might pitch the idea to the pancake people :). 2Oldman, that is what we use now and throw half away:(.

RE: Pancake in a Can

I am going to try something. Buy a box of complete mix, measure enough for four to five pancakes and put it in a quart Ziploc. Add water and mix in the bag, snip a corner of the bag and squirt on the griddle, see how much mess I can make.....

RE: Pancake in a Can

We use the Shake & Pour now, but end up wasting about half of it. We tried buying a box and mix what we need, but then have utensil and bowl clean-up after. I am REAL lazy........

Pancake in a Can

Does anyone still make/sell the pancake batter in a can anymore. Neither of our two markets sell it and I have not seen it in a few years. It was handy for two of us and we only eat pancakes maybe once a month?

RE: Best Ex-Pat area for full time residency

I have visited a couple of CA countries in the last 15 years, only for a week or two each year. never "lived" there so my opinion may be a little shortsighted. Nicaragua - pretty, coastal areas are nice and cater to tourist. Populated areas usually crowded and expensive. Locals seemed a little stand-offish to me but just my personal experience. Only spent a week there and from what I understand, most ex-pats can not buy land, they must rent on long term from the Government, not real sure on that. Honduras - went there about eight years straight and love the country and the people are some of the best in the world, made many friends while there. I always went into the interior of the country, never visited the coastal areas at all. They welcome outsiders gladly and if I had really concentrated on learning Spanish, this would be my first choice. Belize - I have been travelling there for the last nine years. One of the best things about Belize, they mostly speak English, the official language of the country. Very diverse mix of people and cultures. Belize depends mostly on the tourist trade for its economy. Being so small, you can be on the coast in the morning and the mountains on the Guatemala border that night. Cost of living depends on your taste. I have never been out to the Islands or "Cays", hope to visit this year in July, but they welcome ex-pats with open arms. As with all CA countries, fuel or gasoline prices are high and so is electric service. Not much help really I know, but just a general overview of my personal experiences, if you are comfortable with the Spanish language, you would get along better than I do, too old to learn a new way to talk......

RE: Nat'l Champ. Game Alabama vs Clemson???

Loved the game, defensive game for both teams was great! I take away three things from the game. 1. It was waaaay to long, just a tad over 4 hours. 2. Never was a fan of instant replay reviews, let the refs do their job, good or bad, the bad ones would soon get weeded out. 3. Commentators should do just that, quit trying to be Coaches on air. That's all I have to say about that......

Grandkids are a HOOT!!!!

TSO has toured in our area for at least 15 years and I listened to them during the Holidays via CD before that. I have never had the chance to see them live for various reasons until this year. Here is the grandkid part. I called the oldest GD, she is 21, if her and her BF would like to go to the concert, she hesitated a little and finally said her and younger sister, (she is 17), would take me since I do not like driving at night anymore. We went last night, took them out to eat and had a GREAT time at the concert. They kept raving about the light show, all of the performers, the whole experience. They both said it the nothing like they expected, the best concert they had ever been to, which are a lot of concerts! I asked them what did they really think it was going to be, and they both said they expected a symphony type concert with an orchestra sitting in chairs play dull long hair music. They both said if we do not go back next year they will not forgive me. I laughed until I cried all the way home, they did not know Grandpa was so cool............

RE: Soaked Chip Smokers vs Pellet Smokers

Super Dave, soaking may delay smoke process some but it also prevents wood from catching on fire as soon as you put them in. Throwing on the soaked chunks is the LAST thing I do before closing up the smoker. I only soak the chunks for about 30 minutes anyway, so they catch on fairly quickly laying on the charcoal.

RE: Soaked Chip Smokers vs Pellet Smokers

I have always used a charcoal smoker and use wood chunks soaked in water with it. I keep a bag of hickory, mesquite, and apple on hand and sometimes mix woods together. I purchased a metal box and a small bag of chips, soaked the chips and put them in the box and then the smoker, but went back to the chunks, more smoke and lasted longer, JMHO..........
