Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup

A few chile flakes would,I think,go a long way to brighten this up.

How to Brew Small-Batch Beer in Your Kitchen

There are so many great craft brewed beer available today,when you want to drink them,why on earth would one go through all this nonsensical rigmarole?Otter Creek has a great copper ale and I doubt if it could be matched at home,in the freakin kitchen,if you had the recipe.It's just not necessary.You could drink a different beer everyday,a great one.And don't bother to give me that
stuff about"doing it yourself.

Basic Caprese Salad

Clunkers are always changing recipes to suit their taste.That's fine ,but then give it another name,because it's not the same thing anymore.The other day I ordered a Martini, which I haven't done in years.I got plain Vodka.I sent it back and was told that was a Martini.IT IS NOT.A martini is Gin and Vermouth and nothing else.Who ever came up with that idea
should be told to change the name to Ruskie or something of that nature.

Environmentalists: "Put a Cork in It"

I'm so sick and tired of environmentless types looking to run everyone's life.Everything they come up with to save things
have many un-forseen consequences.Tke "gasahol,for iinstance.If the damned screw cap is better than use it if you want to and screw the busybodies.

They Eat Horses, Don't They?

The fellow who said Americans never had to eat horse is quite wrong.During the second World War, horse was often the only meat available at markets.The beef was sent to the boys over seas,and of course the politicians had beef and anything else they wanted,but we were rationed.Nothing changed there,O'bummer eats $100 a pound Kobi in the white house.But back to the point.We ate and I love it,I prefer it to beef as i do raw tuna.Do gooders should mind their own freakin business.
