Moving in

Reactions: 
The Man has been in quite a tizz lately... apparently some bad guy broke in and stole some stuff at the house... hence my "older" sister moving in together with The Girl... her name is Dutchess... she is very cool but I am taking things from a distance... hopefully she will be my friend. Together we can rule the roost and show that mean tomcat who is boss...

Law of Cat Thermodynamics:

Heat flows from a warmer to a cooler body, except in the case of a cat, all heat flows to the cat.

SA church on horns of ox dilemma... this weeks Dumbass award.

Reactions: 
But Rev Sogiba insisted that the slaughter was nothing to do with invoking the ancestors.

"This is not a traditional ceremony, this is a celebration because we are inaugurating our new diocese," he said. "The idea is to have more meat for refreshments."

Heard of butchers yet Rev.? There is no need to do it on church premises and I think there are by-laws prohibiting this... Dumbass.

Awesome dude's salmon bake

Reactions: 
Wow a comment! Thanks chefmom, you have great blog by the way... Now for another one from my blog...
Le saumon avec la sauce de tomate et vegtables - Salmon with tomato sauce and veggies.
2 to 3 servings, can be squeezed or stretched to suit fish or company.
Ingrédients - Components... errr ingredients
1 fillet of salmon (canadian cos it is cheaper) big enough for your baking dish
2 cans tomato paste
1 leftover bit of tomato sauce in All Gold bottle
1 leftover bit of mayo in bottle
1 nice sized onion
1 serving spoon of peppadews
1 500/750g bag vegetables of your choice from P&P or Woolies, I used one that had carrots/sweet potato and butternut, will be trying other variations to the theme. Some olive oil, black pepper to taste, veggie seasoning and paprika. Set oven on 300 - full blast to warm it while you prep da fish and do the sauce... Get your fav saucepan as well and a baking dish big enough to hold the fish and veggies Dice & slice the onion and peppadew, seperately or together. Put the veggies in the microwave and nuke em for 5 minutes at least, rember to make a hole in the bag, it will explode if not!
La Sauce - the Sauce
A dash of olive oil in the saucepan, saute onions and add peppadew or do em in tandem, add the leftovers in the 2 bottles by swishing around the leftover with 250 ml. warm water, toss into onions that should be ready by then, add tomato paste and some Italian herbs, simmer slowly while you prep the fish... You should have around 750 ml when done, add water if needed.
Le poisson - the Fish
Wipe the fish with about a desertspoon of olive oil, sprinkle with black pepper to taste and colour the fish with some paprika, place in baking dish and put in oven... Don't forget! Turn once when the fish starts browning, this should not take longer than 6 minutes a side.
La combinaison - the Combining of it all
Now whip out the veggies and the fish, open the bag and arrange veggies around the fish in dish (rhymes), pour the sauce over the fish and veggies, return to the oven for another 10 to 15 minutes, put grill on for the first 5 then swich off the oven... the fish and veggies will do the final cooking in the residual heat of the oven.
Prepare your table in the meantime... Goes well with a fine tossed salad and good company or it will serve two days worth of leftover for a single dude like me, there, ain't I awesome.

Which mythical creature resides in your soul?

Reactions: 
dragon
DRAGON
You are the dragon. A dragon,
in western lore, is a giant lizard with wings.
It usually has the capability to breathe fire.
The dragon symbolizes immense power, physical
strength, and courage. The dragon has also been
a symbol of wisdom and of protection. Dragons
may also appear to be greedy as many a tale
depict them as keepers of vast hordes of
treasure.

Hung up... Gimme Gimme Gimme (A Man After Midnight)

Reactions: 
Madonna? I dont usually use explitives but What T^$$# F*^%$ was she thinking?
Why use ABBA's keyboard sample from Gimme Gimme Gimme? Well without it actually the song is a dud sparkler with no fizz... what a pity that originality seems to have eluded her or the songwriting team on this one.
On the other hand this song will be played ad nauseum at parties... it has an infectious beat...

Worth?

Reactions: 
So when you convert to Rands that means R3838.87, give or take a few Rand... Why do we value everything in monetary terms? I think one should be valued in Hugs & Kisses... I was at my therapist today and realise we put far to much value on what we earn and how much we are worth to our employers than our loved ones...
More at some another time...
Found some lyrics that fit perfectly with the theme of worth as well, thanks Kylie, my best wishes in your fight with the big C...

For All I'm Worth - Kylie Minouge

Who's telling me?
Who's wrong or right?
When I don't come home at night.

No mother
No Lover

I'm finished with cold claims on me
I'm not what you want me to be
No way, hear what I say

Don't keep me apart
ooohhh from the one I love
Don't keep me apart
Don't keep me apart
From the one I love

Just let me be
Just let me be
Just let me be
Just let me be

For all I'm worth

For all I'm worth

Who's telling us about the babies
Don't you think it's up to the ladies?

Don't confuse us
Or abuse us

I don't allow some power freak
to make me feel small and weak
No way, hear what i say

Don't keep me apart
ooohhh from the one I love
Don't keep me apart
Don't keep me apart
From the one I love

Just let me be
Just let me be
Just let me be
Just let me be

For all I'm worth

For all I'm worth

Don't keep me apart
ooohhh from the one I love
Don't keep me apart
Don't keep me apart
From the one I love

Just let me be
Just let me be
Just let me be
Just let me be

For all I'm worth

For all I'm worth

Just let me be

For all I'm worth.

I would like to end off with this one thing... Cherish the one your'e with, make the time together special...
