Scheduled to make shrimp scampi last night. I searched the "recipes" tag to find my previously-used recipe, and then I saw another entry mention shrimp so I looked at that and it called for a whole tsp of red pepper flakes and I noted that a few shakes of chili powder on top of that was nice and spicy but not unbearable, and on some level I noticed this second recipe was fra diavolo - not scampi - but it did NOT register that proportions might have been different... so we ended up with some pretty spicy sc...

Attended my first Al-Anon meeting since moving to NC, at Christ the King Lutheran on Walnut St. last night. The church campus is huge; I only found the meeting room because I happened to cross paths with a veteran attendee on his way in. I had to bring up global warming in the context of why did I migrate from FL, so course if it's close to freezing anywhere in North America in December, then global warming must be fake news, right? smh Assembled the cat condo when I got home. Not enthused about the fun... (...more)

As the data entry aspect neared completion, I took over more technical and production work while the office "manager" spiraled down in some kind of addiction. Sometimes from the right-wing liars we hear Social Security decried as a... (...more)

Last night's feature presentation was "Of Mice and Men" (1996, Sinise, Malkovitch). After, I trudged through the scanning and uploading of election forms for the planner, and tallied up expenses for reimbursal.

Advent meditations Tuesday, December 4, 2018: Psalm 90; 2 Samuel 7:18-29; Revelation 22:12-16 David's prayer beseeches God to keep His promise to sustain Israel as a nation and people under His protection, but by the time of the Roman Empire it came under pagan dominion, and even within a century of the Incarnation, the Great Temple was sacked. The recurring theme of the Bible is the story of God revealing His intentions and expectations for a people He calls His own, promising unending comfort if they... (...more)
