Bye-Bye, Baseball; Hello, Football

Well, it appears that the Seattle Mariners aren’t in the playoffs this year. A promising beginning went to hell in a handbasket after the All-Star Break, with injuries sidelining many starting pitchers and the inexplicable 80-game suspension of Robinson Cano. They finished the season in good fashion but it is still disappointing that they were eliminated from the post-season.

Football is back and the Seahawks are off to a shaky 2 – 2 start. I hope they start improving, but two injuries in Sunday’s game might have them hamstrung for a time. We shall see.

Tuesday Tidbits: Cooking & Comedy

Author’s Note: This post was originally published in March of last year. I updated it slightly.

It’s a nice, relaxing Tuesday. Snow is falling outdoors while the delicious aroma of home-made beef stew wafts through the house. Cooking is such an enjoyable thing to do, especially with fresh ingredients! I figured that I’d show a few of the vegetables which I like to use in stews, much like my previous post about the things I toss in with my chicken soup.

Onions, shallots, and garlic make up the base of most dishes. I don’t think that any dinner is complete unless it has at least one of those flavourful bulbs included! Carrots may or may not be used, since the variety of root vegetables used more than makes up for their omission. These herbs and vegetables round out the meal:

Thyme

Rosemary

Oregano

Parsnip

Turnip

Rutabaga

Red potatoes

I love using fresh herbs of many different types…the picture below shows a few of my go-tos.

Since I’m amusing myself with some choice comedy bits, I thought that I’d share them with you. A good laugh does a body good, and these clips had me in a fit of giggles!

Shining the Blacklight on American Democracy

Drumpf’s Agenda: Today, America…Tomorrow, the World!

Conan O’Brien talks about the United Airlines dress code

Conan O’Brien hits Comic-Con(R) Mad Max-Style (2015)

Finally, this post wouldn’t be complete without a few short clips about bots and the role they play in various online scams. Behind every bot, troll, sock-puppet and cat-phishing attempt / attack is someone looking to give you the old “Rick-Roll.”

Pictures & Screenshots for Post #1,005 (Re-blogged)

Wind & Rain!

It has been a bit stormy here on the coast, and another system is moving in. Knock wood, I haven’t lost power at all this time around! The Divines continue to smile benevolently, it appears.

A Trio of Tunes for Tuesday!

The weather has gotten nasty here over the past couple of days! High winds, accompanied by copious amounts of rain, make it clear that the seasonal change is in full swing. I’m happy that the work on the roof was done in time, and a small leak near the vent in the laundry room was finally tended to.

Time to do a bit of gaming! I have the music cranked up, a hot cup of coffee at hand, and a pleasant haze of smoke is hanging in the air. Allow me to share a bit of music, if you will – sit back and relax for a while!

Tuesday Tuneage…6 June 2017!

I heard two of these songs on the radio today, and figured that a musical post was in order! Busy, busy, busy week already…but loads of fun!

Tuesday Tuneage…27 December 2016!

It’s a lovely, lazy Tuesday! Relaxing and gaming; made up a nice big pot of seafood chowder, and staying warm while it’s rainy and blustery outside. I think that it’s time for some music – enjoy these selected songs! Later, ‘gators…
