Garlic spread

Well, William’s posts on cooking has inspired me! I love making my version of garlic spread. It is easy to make. It lasts for a while in the fridge. And it tastes excellent on freshly made bread!

Mel Gibbs: “The Patriot Act will put both of you (Neuharth and Mitchell) on trial for treason and convict and execute both of you as traitors for running these stories in a time of war and it should be done on TV for other communist traitors like you two to know we mean business. This is war and you should be put in prison NOW for talking like this. Who the hell do you people think you are? You give aid and comfort to our enemies and aid them in murdering our proud soldiers. You people are a disgrace to America. Your families should be put in prison with you, then be made to leave and move to the Middle East …This is a great Christian nation and god wants us to lead the world out of darkness with great leaders like President George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. Communists like Al and Greg will soon be in prison and on death row for your ugly papers. We won the election and now you are mad. We own America and all the rights, you people are trash, go back to Russia and Africa and take your friends with before we put you on death row after a fair trial.” What is with people these days?! link

Austin’s 2004 weather

Austin Weather

2004 was an interesting weather year. It was slightly cooler. It was very wet (3rd wettest). And we had snow!

Austin definitely has its problems with weather. It is too hot and too dry during summer (100+ degrees, 30+ days without rain). And there are ozone action days and overcast days. It seems that, for 80% of the days in the year, Austin will hit 70 degrees Farenheit. The worst part about the weather is the flash flooding, hail, high winds, and tornadoes.


I have a pet. Well, let’s see. I feed it (lately every 2 or 3 weeks). I walk it (or at least I knead it). I eat it. What? Oh yeah, it is a sourdough culture. I should work with it more often.
