The rink burgers we had last night – which generally I find delicious, fresh off the grill — were so disappointing that I choked down mine without enjoying a single bite, and Scott left half of his – a philly steak lasagne special and the coleslaw that came with it – on the plate. If you know Scott, a.k.a. Voratio, you know that never happens. Food has to be pretty terrible for him to disdain it. He found something else to eat as soon as we got home. So much for burgers at the curling rink in Wadena. We won’t give up on other rinks just yet though. There’s still a hockey arena in town — mind you, we never go to a hockey game and I never will if I can avoid it so …I guess that was our rink burger experience for this winter.
wisewebwoman: I am so pissed. I rely on CBD oil for pain management and now it turns out Canada, now that it’s legal, has run out. “they didn’t anticipate the pain crowd,” I was told. Talk of moronic poor planning. Apparently bureaucracy forgot you need grow-ops with finished products and more on the go before you open the shop. The store offered me CBD with THC but getting high is not in my immediate future, thanks.I’ll have to try my Vancouver, formerly illegal, source again. On your comment: I have diabetes so shots take an inordinate amount of time, or the tissues and nerves to. 😦 My reading is through the roof lately. I’m not complaining. Must check out your recipes. We’re having a deadly winter, we’re all pissed. It usually starts mid Feb and now we’re up to our uxters in snow. Grrr.
One does have to wonder how the legal supply has been so poorly managed. Has the demand suddenly been so much greater? At least the black market dealers seem to know what they’re doing and I guess they should, they’ve been doing it long enough.
If you try the ginger noodles recipe, you might want to halve the amount of spaghetti if it’s just for yourself. I used an entire package and that makes a lot; also I’m thinking of making up more of the marinade to give extra flavour, as the noodles are tasting bland today.
Uxters! Another new word (to me), courtesy of you and your wild Irish ways! I must look it up online. That and another unfamiliar word, not in my Canadian Oxford Dictionary: bindles.
soapboxpulpit: can you by cauliflower rice,can here but havnt tried it
Never heard of such a thing! Let me know how it is, once you’ve had some. And is it crazy expensive too?
By the way, Reta, I was poking around Ancestry.com the other night and discovered the names of our Irish grandmother Mary Ann’s parents: George Lawrence, born 8 Jan 1786 in Ballinganane, County Limerick, Ireland, and Margaret Rose (don’t know maiden name), born 1785 in Limerick.
Looks like the village of Ballinganane is 30 miles from Dublin, but I can’t find it anywhere online. Seems there is a village of Ballingarry in Limerick. Maybe WiseWebWoman can offer some clarity on this, being born and raised in Ireland herself. I also found Ballynaganane in a Limerick voters’ list online.
George’s father was Barclay Lawrence, born 1759 in Limerick County, and George’s mother’s name was Joan.
So… Karen, Joan, Leanne, Karla, Damon … Barclay and Joan are our 5xgreat-grandparents. And Joan, isn’t it interesting to note that we have two Joans in the background … not only Joan Hoddinott in Frome (Somerset County, England), but a Joan in Ireland too.
I’ve received my DNA test from Ancestry and am holding off spitting in the tube and mailing it back till I hear that Canada Post has cleaned up its backlog from the strikes.
I have yet to find out what nationality our Bartley line was before the family became Canadian. English or Irish, I imagine … but which?
Teresa: Great picture. If the cannabis is less harmful and more effect why the heck not! Absolutely absurd! Food prices don’t get me started.
Our friend was told by a doctor that since he hadn’t had any school training with cannabis, he couldn’t prescribe it. But that doesn’t make perfect sense either — doctors aren’t trained in every new drug that comes out, but they still prescribe them — I guess that’s because the drug companies give them some educational material — but who is providing that for cannabis and its products?
