Quote of the Day

I like this one…

Let my name stand among those who are willing to bear ridicule and reproach for the truth’s sake, and so earn some right to rejoice when the victory is won.

Help Find Elvis Presley!

Thanks goes out to Shawn for letting us know about this exciting opportunity!

ElvisWanted.com is offering a $3,000,000 reward for anyone who can find Elvis Presley alive. He was born on January 8, 1935 which would make him 73 at the time of this post.

Jill Bolte Taylor with Brain

When My right arm went limp I realized.. oh my gosh I’m having a stroke! then my brain says.. wow, this is so cool, this is so cool! How many brain scientists have the opportunity to study their own brain from the inside out !!

She’s great, very interesting…

Potato Soup in the Blender!

I just finished my first batch of soup in my Blender.

I got all of the ingredients from Trader Joe’s:

  • 2 bags of mini potatoes (1 red, 1 white)
  • 1 quart of Vegetable Broth
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

I boiled the onion and potatoes then moved them to the blender with some vegetable broth and seasoned to taste..  then repeated until I was out of boiled ingredients.

When I hit the “SOUP” button, the man inside the blender started whipping all 3 horses and turned my boiled potatoes into lump-free soup.. The consistency is good, but I need to work on the flavor.. it’s “almost there”… 😀
