New site for pictures and videos

by MrChrister

We have put up a new web page finally to display Ashley’s photos.  This new site has some neat tools like customizations you can use to fit your tastes.  Please notice the top bar on the page.  It will allow you to change the text size, widen the page or move the navigation to one side or the other.

It is planned to move most of the content of the old site into this new format.  The plan is to make searching and even commenting a lot easier.

Another tool is the feed section located in the navigation menu bottom.  With the feed, you can click on it and subscribe.  Subscribing to a feed means you can be alerted when new content is published.  One then assumes you can parlay that into noting the date of the last post and harass us about it.  We aim to please anyway.

This is Mary’s cat Ms Kitty. She is a filthy hairball who is the sort of reason people don’t have cats. But she is friendly for being a one-eyed jerkface

Been playing cornhole!

by MrChrister

Got a new game to play. You need some plywood and some bags of corn.

I have been playing this game in backyards all over Southern Oregon, and ever since I found it on a camping trip it is faithfully consumed my entire life.

I have now been a part of building two complete sets, at a cost of about $40 each. This habit is cheaper than drugs, and the high last longer. If only I could play JUST ONE MORE ROUND I could get good enough to beat the shooter in our group

If you want to play, check out the web or keep checking here for updates.


Carmel Corn

by MrChrister

Without further ado, here is the way to make it. You will need

  • 1 brown paper bag.
  • About 2 1/2 poppers of popped corn
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter (a stick)
  • 1/4 cup light syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Pop about 6 inches of popped corn in the large brown paper bag. Next combine brown sugar, butter, corn syrup, and salt in a skillet and bring that to a boil. You will need to cook it while boiling for 2 minutes while boiling. After the time is up, add baking soda and vanilla and stir well until you mixture is smooth. Not too much stirring, because you need it rather liquidy. Pour your syrup over popcorn in bag, and stir it up with a spoon, and give the bag a hearty shake.

Now microwave the bag for 1 1/2 minutes and shake it up again. Turn the bag over and microwave for another 1 1/2 minutes and shake for the last time. Pour the corn into a bowl. If you haven’t eaten most of it already, wait until it is dry and store in air tight container.

p.s. The syrups gets hotter than an egg in the desert. So just you watch it.

p.p.s. I wish I had a category for delicious
