  1. Add a tablespoon of sugar to the recipe. And don't forget the apple cider vinegar and red pepper flakes. I made some last weekend using my southern roots as my guide. And it was delicious.
  2. There was a thread here about another child in the U.K., Charlie Gard, whose parents were denied the right to seek additional medical help for him. Responses were much the same as with this child.
  3. So let me see if I have this straight. Two African American employees planned the menu (frankly, a safe decision these days) and now they are unemployed. And this is progress? Hmmm.
  4. I'm sure the officer's family appreciates your concern.
  5. RIP Mr. Graham. He has never been given proper recognition for his civil rights efforts. Maybe now.
  6. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2018/02/19/homicides-toll-big-u-s-cities-2017/302763002/ New Orleans had 158 homicides, soulflower. Many less than Baltimore.
  7. Yeah well, guess what? I had lunch there last week and I wasn't terrified. I had dinner last evening at City Cafe and was only moderately concerned about walking to my car parked on Charles St. So that means that story has it all wrong. "Councilman Kristefer Burnett says the city’s image could affect tourism, and residents could pack up and leave. “It was definitely heartbreaking,” he said. “We have a lot to offer, but when the narrative is so much violence and that is the reality, there is so much violence, it becomes very difficult to control that.” Exactly.
  8. No, it's blamed on poverty, lack of education, no daddy, no mommy, drug culture, one thing after another. But never that some people are just wicked.
  9. BALTIMORE (WJZ) — USA Today has named Baltimore the most dangerous city in the country following the city’s 342 homicides in 2017. The paper looked at police department crime data that revealed Baltimore had the highest per capita murder rate in the nation with nearly 56 murders per 100,000 people — a record for the city. The rate outpaced New Orleans and Detroit, with a rate of 40 and 39 killings per 100,000 people, respectively. Baltimore’s 342 total was an increase of 25 from 2016. Baltimore — the most-populated city in Maryland with about 615,000 residents — had more homicides last year than Philadelphia, Los Angeles and New York City. http://baltimore.cbslocal.com/2018/02/19/baltimore-named-nations-most-dangerous-city-by-usa-today/ Yay! We are number one!
  10. Some drunken idiots were removed as should have been. Perhaps they should be banned for life. What do YOU think should happen next? Now, explain your correlation between the deaths on 9-11 and this incident..
  11. So you equate over 3,000 people killed to racist taunts where no one was killed? M'kay. So, I ask again, now what?
  12. The gun lobby is going to have to learn to compromise. Not sure why it is against stronger background checks especially for weapons such as used in Vegas and in schools.
  13. I worry about anything the government touches to help people going horribly wrong. I think I mentioned earlier that the family/individual could complete a profile about their food/spice allergies and dislikes. For example, in my profile, I noted that I don't eat pork, lamb or veal and I dislike cilantro. The kits that I liked the most are the ones that don't pre-chop slice and dice. For me, the meals provided enough food for two to three meals for one person; or a very nice meal for two. As my grandmom used to say, it's just a pipe dream though.
  14. Yeah. I just look for the smallest one there knowing that most of it will be tossed. Blue Apron provides it already minced, chopped, etc. in a sealed envelope. That's one of the reasons I like those types of food delivery - no waste. But I truly think they are best for couples or families.
