A baked russet potato, rubbed with butter and sprinkled liberally with
salt, the top pricked with a fork so it will split easily, baked at 400F
for an hour. Flake the flesh of the opened potato jacket with a fork
then add butter (you could add sour cream, I neglected to buy some), add
a generous amount of finely shredded cheese (I used a "Mexican" cheese
blend) and crumbled bacon. You could add minced chives to this.

I baked two potatoes. Tomorrow or the next day I'll use the other one
to make a small pot of Baked Potato Soup.

What's cooking? :)

Baked potatoes sound good.

I had a salad with leftover grilled chicken breast.

Lunch was kielbasa on a bun with finely minced raw onion.

Factory chicken or can you afford free range?

We went out for supper. We opted to take a table outside because there
aren't many outside dining evenings left this season. My wife had
braised short ribs and really enjoyed them. I opted for their whiskey
rubbed salmon with a succotash corn, rappini and cherry tomatoes. This
is a relatively new restaurant having just opened up within the last
year in the middle of the pandemic, and they are doing quite well.

My wife is bringing her vehical to the Toyota dealership for a 5,000
mile check up. Across the road is a very nice Italian market...
dinner tonight will be good salami (Genoa) on real Italian semolina
bread and whatever salads, marinated artichoke hearts hopefully, and
olives. I like Mortadela too. Today is her birthday, 74, I baked her
a chocolate cake. When I asked what she wanted she said just a plain
chocolate cake, no frosting. I baked it in a loaf pan, I know she
will ration herself to slices and freeze them. I also got her a
bottle of our favorite, Opium Parfum.

Happy Birthday to your wife.

Opium is one of my favorite perfumes as well. But I like their previous
bottle style better.

I'll be right there to fill all your needy places, Joan.

It's one of the few perfumes that actually smells good. Most women's
fragrances and *all* men's fragrances stink. I'm of the opinion that a
woman shouldn't smell like a French whore unless she actually *is* a
French whore.

I wouldn't know what a French whore smells like. My go-to fragrance for
the last forty years has been Oscar (Oscar de la Renta).

I have been out of the USA, and you know Jill has as she's posted many
times her father was in the military, and they were living overseas. I don't
know if Bryan has been out of the country, not that it matters if any of us
have or have not.

Just because someone has visited another country doesn't necessarily
mean they will adopt their customs and opinions. What Australian custom
or belief have you latched onto while living there?

You may or may not copy customs and opinions, but it broadens your
view to look a bit further than your own yard.

Australian customs that I've picked up? Handling pythons, waving at
kangaroos, eating Vegemite, driving on the wrong side of the road,
saying "mate" after every sentence and I could go on. But I'm not
visiting. I live here.

You've just a tiny, tiny sampling of the USA here. You have no idea what
people really think about overseas situations. Your view of US is very
narrow.

Well, we wave at everyone here, do LOTS of hugging and shaking of
hands. Only some weird churches, very rural, handle snakes and the
ones they handle are poisonous. People are addressed as "Buddy or

But I was only talking about Bryan, Jill and you, not about Americans
in general. For one thing, they come in 2 types: deplorable and not
deplorable. It's roughly 50/50.

I know. I'd never touch any of those, although I almost stood on one
recently. I was lucky that it was in a good mood. I think your snake
handlers are in West Virginia? Or East Virginia. Or Virginia tout

Buddy, dude, pal sound very American to me. Bubba sounds like one's

English? I think a bub's a baby here.

Although bro, brah and dawg seem to be catching on with the younger
generation. Millenials have been known to call me "Boss" when I buy from

I've noticed that "boss" seems to be popular with the minorities. Don't
take it the wrong way, I would believe it is meant to be respectful. I
was paying a Mexican "kid" across the street to hack down the lawn of a
house I was prospecting to own, and haul trash out. He called me "boss"
from the get-go after meeting him.

On a related note, keep in mind, that I'm about as young and Millenials
come... the cut-off is typically 1996, and as old as 1981. Everyone
younger than their mid 20's are now "generation Z" or something else.

Interestingly enough, he mentioned that as well. Quite frankly, I don't
care -- if you're a hard work, polite, and you work for cheap, it works
for me.

The yard in question - 2 lots - was over 6 foot high in places, and he
spent an entire day hacking it down with a machete, weed eater, and a
mower... and he only wanted $50. I insisted that he take $60. He did a
follow up mow a couple of times for $20.

I haven't heard from him in some time, I think a neighbor told he me was
back in jail. That's sad, it's a shame that he couldn't put his work
ethic to good use and make better for himself.

I assume they did jail time when people call me "boss." I prefer they call me "uncle" - it's just better that way.

Yes, and the even lower-class jailbirds use the term 'dawg.'

mean they will adopt their customs and opinions. What Australian custom
or belief have you latched onto while living there?
You may or may not copy customs and opinions, but it broadens your
view to look a bit further than your own yard.
Australian customs that I've picked up? Handling pythons, waving at
kangaroos, eating Vegemite, driving on the wrong side of the road,
saying "mate" after every sentence and I could go on. But I'm not
visiting. I live here.
Hmm.. the last time I heard about a Vegemite (sandwich) was from Men At
Work.. what exactly is that?

Do you know promite or marmite? It's very similar. Unless you're born
Australian, you have to apply it very thinly on your bread or else you
think you're eating axle grease.

It's very strong tasting, not fruity at all. I'm tempted to say that
it tastes like anchovy from a tube, except that it's not fishy.
Ingredient list, Bruce? :)

I'm guessing it's probably dead yeast cells and salt. In the future, we'll all be eating dead yeast cells.

a time to hit the "red X" that stops the page from loading. A few

Check this out! I bought them from Oz about fifteen years ago, just to
be able to say, "Oh, yeah, I got those. Do you want some." Nobody ever
asked. They've never been opened and are almost certainly poisonous by
now. I have no idea what they taste like. They're a little dusty.

Opium is one of my favorite perfumes as well. But I like their previous
bottle style better.
It's one of the few perfumes that actually smells good. Most
women's
fragrances and *all* men's fragrances stink. I'm of the opinion that a
woman shouldn't smell like a French whore unless she actually *is* a
French whore.
--Bryan
Goodness!  I've never been told I smell like a French whore.
Thankfully,
I've been complimented on my choices of perfume.
I wouldn't know what a French whore smells like.  My go-to
fragrance for the last forty years has been Oscar (Oscar de la Renta).

My wife is bringing her vehical to the Toyota dealership for a 5,000
mile check up. Today is her birthday, 74, I baked her
a chocolate cake. When I asked what she wanted she said just a plain
chocolate cake, no frosting. I baked it in a loaf pan, I know she
will ration herself to slices and freeze them. I also got her a
bottle of our favorite, Opium Parfum.

dinner tonight will be good salami (Genoa) on real Italian semolina

olives. I like Mortadela too. Today is her birthday, 74, I baked her

A baked russet potato, rubbed with butter and sprinkled liberally with
salt, the top pricked with a fork so it will split easily, baked at 400F
for an hour.
Why not just rub with grease and nuke for 5 minutes? It isn't easier?

Yeah you can, depending on size.
I use a small 700 watt microwave

medium in just under 5 minutes.
2 1/2 minutes on one side, wait a bit then flip over and do another 2
1/2 minutes

More like 3 minutes on each side for a large one.

They're fully cooked but no crisp skin like Jill wants.

Very occasionally I'll nuke a small potato, but mostly when I have a
roast in the oven I'll bake at least four large potatoes at the same
time. extra baked potatoes can be reheated in the nuker. I don't use
any oil or salt on the skin. Only thing I do is scrub them well with
a brush and use the peeler to poke out the eyes. Potato eyes are
toxic. I find oiling the skin keeps it from crisping until the potato
is over baked. After baking the potato I cut an X in it and squeeze
the potato til it opens some and the flesh softens, then I place a pat
of butter in and some salt. I don't like too much salt... sometimes I
don't put any salt on baked potatoes. Sometimes instead of butter I
use sour cream, sometimes plain yogurt. I like boiled potatoes
smashed with plain yogurt. Sometimes when I plan for it I like
smashed boiled potatoes with pickled herring in cream sauce, then
naturally it needs no salt. I don't normally keep herring in the
fridge, it won't make it til the end of the day... my Latvian
upbringing... lots of pickled fish washed down with vodka. For those
who may not know Riga is the capital of Latvia, Riga is the world's
vodka capital. I like all kinds of pickled fish, pickled lox is very
good, difficult to find. My favorite is matjes herring, also not easy
to find anymore.
