Well, this sucks

I’m having flashbacks to election 2000 and those stupid hanging chads. I walked around like I had the flu until they got everything worked out.

I am not looking forward to this.

This was an animation of a weasel with her head on fire. From the 2008 election. Turns out, it’s a Flash animation and it don’t run no mo’.

It was kind of an ugly animation, anyhow.

This has been typical for MANY years now.
And neither “Law Enforcement” nor the “Legal” system give a damn!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It’s no comfort, I realise, but we have had the same situation over here – fraudulent postal votes and outraged screams from the Left whenever anyone dares suggest voter ID.

Funny how it’s always the Left that defends the mechanism whereby elections can be stolen, innit?

And tomorrow, another damned lockdown begins. No one voted for that, either.

Well, the ‘fires’ will really start if they try to make good on collecting fire arms (contrary to the words “shall not be infringed”).

Knowing Harris will be President pretty shortly after the inauguration is less frightening somehow than knowing about the cast of cartoon characters that will be in her cabinet.

The left has been running these games for a long time. Now at least they have Trump to deal with. He’s not what they’re used to going up against.

These fools don’t realize that destroying an armed nations faith in the electoral system is a very dangerous thing to do.

There are many actors (and directors) in this farcical tragedy who deserve that old vaudeville “hook” to pull them off the stage.

At the age of 71 I have little to lose…except my self-respect by doing nothing.

Well, let’s lighten it up a bit because…

Our dehydrated celery turned into little pills.
First experiments, probably sliced too thin (last time we trust the depth gauge on the mandolin slicer!)

So, blanching the celery first, or not?

@weasel again
OMG – it’s for the annual Christmas dried soup in a jar and ‘salsa’ mixes.

So far…we’ve bought –

lots of celery to run tests with, varying slice sizes, drying times and to blanch or not to blanch and for how long.

A dehydrator,
extra silicon sheets to keep the dried bits from
falling down to the bottom of the dehydrator

A pressure canner

jars, lids, desiccants

Beans, lots of beans, carrots, onions (don’t dehydrate onions INSIDE your house, unless you really like onions)

Fortunately we HAD a mandolin slicer which Mr Technical couldn’t ‘work’. Damn dangerous thing with which care must be taken to prevent finger tips from being part of the annual soup mixes and rendering them unfit for vegan consumption.

And of course since Mr Technical is retired, even though this isn’t a project he normally participates in, he gets to slice, blanch, arrange and monitor drying.

Which is good, because it’s helped a little keeping my mind off the, you know what.

Dead Pool?
heh…the mind boggles right now.

In Re: Friday [read with Richard Dreyfuss in mind]

We’re gonna need a bigger pool.

@durnedyankee- a mandolin is one of my most favorite kitchen tools! How else does one make potato fries anytime or scalloped potatoes at the holidays. I only make scalloped potatoes at Christmas to go with my prime rib. Scalloped potatoes, when done right, are one of my most favorite dishes…all 1500 kcal/bite. And by done right I mean with butter, heavy cream and full fat cheese mix. As God intended potatoes to be.
