I don't want to try the new Edit page, but the old one isn't working. I would have made this a private entry, but that doesn't work. But it's not important, it's just a recipe. So:

January 31 2019, 16:23:04 UTC

I found this recipe when I went exploring:

1 cup of Tomato Ketchup
1/4 teaspoon of Baking Soda (sounds weird but trust me)
4 – 5 teaspoons of Mild Curry Powder
2 teaspoons of Smoked Paprika
1 teaspoon of Onion Powder
1/8 – 1/4 teaspoons of Cayenne Pepper
2 teaspoons of Worcestershire Sauce
4 tablespoons of Beef Broth
2 (or more) tablespoons of Water

Is it relatively close? It might be perfect as an app for my friends.

Ech, there was an incident where a local Catholic school group was making fun of a group of Indians during a demonstration of theirs, singing and drumming. I sure would not recommend putting your worship customs out in front of Catholics.

This first frame doesn't look so bad, but if you watch it it shows what one Youtube commenter said was a "punchable" face, they called them Hitler Youth, and I agree with all of this.

there are no words in English, just the Native American chanting, but when you see what is happening you don't need words. These kids are awful.

Over a foot of snow over the weekend, and it's not too cold, so the streets and shoveled sidewalks are clear. It must be just at freezing. I'm playing Puzzle Pirates, and reading the news online.

They're not easy to deal with. Julia Ross, author of the new book, [whatever], says that when it comes to eating, the brain's directives are all-powerful. "Unfortunately", she says, "the brain is telling most of us to eat sweets, fried foods, and starchy pastas and breads". Instead she advises not to skip meals and to make better choices to ward off bad choices. "Increase your protein at each meal and include some red meat along with poultry and fish. This kind of dense protein, eaten regularly, is the most effective food for turning off cravings for sweet and starchy 'treats,'' Ross says.

I needed that, eat the right stuff to keep from craving the wrong stuff.

I was going to post a short video of one of the deer that inhabit our backyard, and neighborhood, but I forgot my cord that will connect the tablet with the computer at the library.

Free photo & I think video storage at Livejournal, and I need to empty my tablet of photos/videos, but need that cord!

I have been playing puzzle pirates and trying to get motivated to get more yard work done than just weeding. I had been cutting down weed-trees, but slowed down on that because of the heat and humidity, very unusual temperatures and a lot of rain this summer.

I am watching tiny house videos today.

Eh, not much going on...

Snagged from spikesgirl58:


I barely drink coffee anymore, just decaf. Even then not too often. But for some reason this a.m. I made some caramel flavored decaf and put it in an insulated coffee thermos. It's really an Aladdin brand insulated coffee keeper, but since I was small, the family called it a Thermos after the original insulated coffee bottle.

Lol, it's been a couple hours & I will probably have to warm it up later if I want it. There is a little festival in the "downtown" area today, people selling all kinds of interesting stuff, from raw honey to recycled/reused items like bottle openers made from golf clubs. Soap, baby toys, beard and mustache grooming products. And the sky is beautiful, rain always brings good clouds in this area, fascinating to watch.

This is a small version of the MUCH larger statue being carved from a mountain in South Dakota. Crazy Horse is the man on the horse, a hero of the Lakota Native American tribe. Our church went to the Lakota tribe's reservation in late July/early August this year, we have been doing it for several years.

More information on the statue here.

I missed seeing even the unfinished version due to being sick, wish I could have seen it and hope I get another chance.

It's VERY hot here, in the 90s, so I came to the library to look at livejournal. I got back from the church mission trip a few weeks ago. My phone got wet there so I am without a phone again. That was quick.

I got sick there and was really tired when I came back, still sick for a week then was just TIRED. It is hard to do yard work when it is this hot. But the yard really needs it, so many bushes coming up that just need to be gotten dug up. The worst by far is the poison ivy.

We did have some deer behind the barn for the last few years, but they seem to be gone for a few months. I hope they come back.

{turns out it's only 85 degrees, but 66% humidiity so it feels much hotter!).

Crazy, I am playing a game online, slither.io. Mostly a waste of time, though a lot of fun. I really feel blank about things.

This is not a big deal, but this from Sunday evening to this afternoon (Thursday), I was house and dog sitting for someone. I thought I put my flashlight in my bag when I went, thought I took it out and used it, then couldn't find it the whole time I was there. I was mystified and thought I was going to have to get a new one, then when I got home it was there.

I just wonder why I thought I brought it with me when obviously I just forgot and left it home. I couldn't remember why I had taken it out of my bag when I got there, so it was even worse. I'm glad I didn't lose it, and I did not need it after all when I was there. But it's just weird!

First post from my first smartphone which I bought this week and then got it activated tonight.

It's kind of difficult to use the keyboard, I'm just not used to it yet.

But, wow. I did not get an iPhone as I wanted to, thanks to maadmike's advice. IPhones are expensive and some cheaper phones work about the same. This looks pretty good, but I still have to read the user manual.

Anyway, if anyone is reading, have a good evening, or whatever time of day it is where you are!

Lord I dedicate this journal to you now, and I hope you work through me in it.

Open strife is better than hidden love.

It's snowing, I'm at the library. It will probably melt in no time, but it's coming down pretty heavy. I'm watching random videos about building houses, this is an "earthbag" house--I think it's when you fill a long plastic bag tube with dirt and then plaster over it. Not sure. But it looks like fun. I'm watching the inside construction and outside finishing, like the skylight and patio railing on the roof.

I guess this teenager gets her own room a few feet from the parents house. It looks like it's in the desert somewhere.

Not finished with it yet, but interesting.
...it's made of just soapsuds and concrete.

This is one comment from the YouTube site:

the comment is behind the cut...Collapse )

I myself don't think every home should be made with it, but it sounds like it will be used a lot on the future, sounds like it does not cost much.

Here is the video, it's short:

On Saturday our neighbor was out on his porch with his acoustic guitar and was singing beautifully. This guy and his wife remind me of the neighbors somewhat. This couple on YouTube are a couple who built a tiny house for their (4?) boys, and they are very thrifty and independent. Their living room is their recording studio, but here they are singing in a concrete silo. It's just beautiful.

The hymn is old one, though a version of it is popular on radio in the last months. This is the original version as far as I know.

Whew, someone sent me a used iPad. I was pretty stunned. I listen to a Bible study on Thursday afternoons, and got to emailing with the group. There is a chat room at the Youtube channel just for that Bible study (The Superior Word), & we get to talking a lot.

I thought it was going to be a cheaper thing, someone had one they were not using, maybe bought a new one, & donated it to the church. I mentioned to one of the organizersthat I know God was going to connect me up somehow so that I don't have to go to the library all of the time to get online. She mentioned this to the pastor who does the study, she must have heard about the tablet.

So they said they were sending me one, and I really didn't expect it to be so nice. :D

I'm not used to it, and don't have internet at home and it's a 20 to 25 minute walk to the nearest internet cafe (Starbucks). But so far it's fun, hope it is useful.

I wish I could have wifi at home but it sounds expensive.

This whole video is about a guy who made wood and metal pieces that can be attached together to make houses, furniture, vehicles. Everything is designed to be modular, only two tools used to put anything together. He built a solar powered train car that cruises the rails on solar panels from his house.

There is an old music and dance show called Soul Train, so he borrowed the name and made the "Sol" train.
