Here is a pic of Bob, he was a gift from my brother 15 years ago. Bob was weathering nicely. Idiot thief.
MRK – what variety did you grow? Mr. jburgh built a raised bed with a cucumber trellis ready for this year. The Diamant that Shelley mentioned sounds good, but I’d like to know what you grew.
Gracie – If it is a free standing shrub,how tall does it need to be, how wide can it be, and how much maintenance time can you put in? Some of the Japanese hollies are columnar. If you are looking for a vine for full sun, then you can grow Clematis armandii ‘Snowdrift’ in the sun, just plant something in front to keep roots cool.
That was pretty interesting Shelley, thank you.
When I think of My Ballard these days, it just makes me sad. You’d think that the neighborhood member’s interactions would be pretty important for a neighborhood forum. Alas, it is not. Too many outages, glitches, time lags. As a member and moderator on a large fashion forum, this neglect would never happen.
Miss Wahoo, I doubt that the failure is due to a lack of a middle ground. So, where shall we all go now? Lucretia, please spill it!
I had fun, thank you phoo for hosting, drinks, snacks and kind hospitality. It was great to meet some of the myballardites. Representing the old person contingent, I brought some deviled eggs. The recipe was requested…
Jburgh’s Deviled Eggs
One dozen large eggs
1 tablespoon yellow mustard
2 tablespoons diced raw sweet onion
2 tablespoons of sweet pickle relish (we like Vlasic brand)
¼ cup mayonnaise (you may need a little more)
sweet Hungarian or Spanish paprika
Boil, cool and peel eggs. Chill for 2 hours (will cut more easily)
Cut eggs in half the long way and put the yolks into a bowl.
You can rinse the halved whites if you wish, but I don’t.
Mash yolks with a fork until no lumps remain.
Dice raw sweet onion, enough to get ~2T.
Add onion, mustard, relish, and mayo to mashed yolks
Stir with fork until well incorporated.
Add a little more mayo if mixture needs it
Using a small spoon, fill each half. It helps if you have one of those old fashioned deviled egg plates. Typically they hold all 24 halves perfectly.
Using a small mesh strainer, sprinkle paprika on the tops of filled eggs.
Chill for an hour before serving.
Notes: You can do most everything a day ahead, but stuff the eggs on the day you plan to serve them. Some people add extra sugar and salt, but they really don’t need it. If you want to be fancy, top each egg with a slice of black olive instead of using the paprika.
One of my neighbors posted this on our neighborhood website recently…
“Black Chevy Pickup 4×4 B84902Z – This vehicle has been spotted in various surrounding neighborhoods (at least Maple Leaf to Sunset Hill) – with a male/female team – one of whom has been seen removing packages from porches and putting them in the pickup bed and then they drive off. There is one instance on video, though not enough clarity for an ID.
Please, if you observe this vehicle in your neighborhood, be watchful and prepared to call 911.”
I can make it at about 4:30-ish. I’ll bring a bottle of wine, and/or some snacks if requested.
Not yet. We do have a great little spy camera I bought from Groupon last month. It is inside, but obvious to someone on the porch that they are being recorded. However, I have heard from neighbors that the package thieves are out.
phoo – I would like to attend, if you’ll have me. I’ve never seen Babylon 5.
Of the 300 or so trick-or-treaters, we had 2 Dr Whos and one Tardis (awesome!). One of the Dr Whos said he was #11, which he insisted was the best one. The kid looked about 8 to me.
Total Wine & More!!! Or maybe a police station there, and scrap the plans to move it to 130th & Aurora.
phoo – I have the complete original Star Trek series on DVD :>)
Almost 6pm and not a child in sight. Im ready with candy. Last year we had about 350 trick or treaters.09/12/2014 at 7:49 am in reply to: Fabulous funny teenage rescue cat looking for a home! #72879
LIA – how old is he? Is he neutered? Does he spray indoors?
Shelley, we did that too in the midwest. When it was so close that the hair on your arms stood up, it was time for me to go inside.
OK – had to look up Bros. The current definition is not all all what I was thinking it was. Used to mean something very different, at least where I grew up.
Curtis – it was in Chicago, so maybe the same one? I have to re-watch the movie.
There was a beauty shop back where I grew up named “Curl Up and Dye.” Thought that was pretty clever. The restaurant name never matters to us if they have good food, decent prices/value and good service. Seems like we end up having nicknames for the restaurants we like (ex. Subway Thai on Leary & Market).
A friend of mine in the south bay said she felt it, but it was more like a 3.5 down there, and rolling.
Very sad. One of his funniest bits to me is that earthquakes are god (or mother nature?) saying “get these condos off my back.”
GI – I am not a believer, but I am somewhat impressed that she quoted Arthur Schopenhauer.
Our neighbor’s son was robbed of his cell phone and headphones by these assholes while out walking the dog.
Thanks – it was just wishful thinking on my part. I was able to attend one time, but every year we have this one charity event to help set up. How far in advance do you announce the date for Art in the Garden?
Miss Wahoo – have you ever heard of plans to open earlier or to make it a 2 day event? Just wishful thinking since every year I seem to have a conflict.
