It sure was tasty.  I could only eat half my pork (it's my very least favorite to have on my plate) but I managed to finish off all my veg!  Mr. Picky Eater decided he didn't want any of the potatoes.  Fine.  No problem with me.  (they were fried in a bit of butter and nicely crispy around the edges!)


Definetely bunch of teeth sinkers Beth.

I think some people who think they are being PC are just being overly sensitive and not very understanding of the meaning. Yes, redskin is an offensive word to American Indians but squaw isn't. Neither is chief or warrior or Cherokee. Redskin is offensive because it is an English word meant to have prejudicial inferences but squaw is a word indians used and it had no pejorative meaning.

Well, ..... I just finished my dessert.
I had waffle batter, so I made 3 waffles, and ate two. OMG, all that butter and syrup was so good going down, but now... *(burp)* ..... Tums to the rescue!

My favorite waffle maker....

That waffle maker looks commercial. What brand is it?

Norm, I once used the word oriental and someone tore me to shreds about it. I had never been told that Asians found it offensive. Out here there is a restaurant called Oriental Seafood. They haven't changed their name.

My nephew wants to go to medical school. He graduated from UC Santa Barbara. Joined the Navy, went to the language institute in Monterey, CA. He is fluent in 5 dialects of Arabic and graduated first in his class and got his second college degree. He is doing something that he has top secret security clearance. He is also getting his third college degree in chemistry and also got the top chemistry award at his college. His name is also on several papers because he synthesized some new compound. He got in the 97 percentile in the MCAT test. He applied to med school and got turned down to all. What the hell do they want? All we can think of is that he told them he wants to go into orthopedics and medical schools want people who want to be primary care physicians, or foreigners, or minorities. He did apply later than most people so maybe that was the problem. I dunno. Anyway he is going to try again next year. Jeez!

I once referred to my wife as Oriental to someone and they told me that things are Oriental, lie a rug but people are Asian. That was news to me and my wife.  I later found out that here in the US, Americans find the term Oriental offensive but Asians, especially outside of the US aren't all that upset about it.

I don't oriental the least bit offensive, but I am not Asian. I don't find "honky" offensive either. I do think the "N" word is horrible.

It is really getting bad. Just the other day a friend of mine who is a flight attendant, got accused of being anti-muslin by a passenger. My friend was working in the galley when a blonde haired, blue-eyed woman wearing a scarf like Yasser Arafat came up and started talking to her. They had a nice chat. the next thing she knows she gets called on the carpet because the woman made a complaint. What is worse is that another flight attendant who was back in the galley with her, wrote a letter apologizing to the woman when nothing offensive was said. We suspect the woman is trying to get something out of the airlines but my friend could lose her job.

I grew up in a segregated style, not just by pigment ( there ya go! ... A PC neutral term )and religion; ethnic stance, and in school, by family / sibling / names.

i.e. ... Italians lived in Italian sections ( as I did ) , and Polish, Irish etc. in their own.
Churches....the same way. Catholic as I supposedly was, had been separated by ethnic background. i.e. St. Anthony's was Italian; and you went there if you were Italian. St. Vincents, was the Irish church. St Josephs was the Lithuanian church.
I was not allowed to play with kids, and even one relative / cousin, with the same surname, because they were Protestant, or Episcopal etc. etc. etc. .... Can you believe that??

As a kid, the priest and the nuns warned us, and told us not to associate with them. they said that they will not Go To Heaven.
We were NOT ALLOWED to have a friend, if the parent was divorced or separated.

I grew up in times of Polio. There was Polio Season, and would you believe, if a kid had polio affliction, even a slight limp or twisted limb, we were NOT allowed to associate with that kid.

I grew up when Women would never smoke in public; even in their own yard to be seen, or they would automatically be labeled a "W" or "S" .... Bad Bad way to try and grow up.

And all that was the norm. ( pun not intended ) ... The schools I went to were separated by big cement / concrete signs ( BOYS ) and ( GIRLS ) entrance sides.

We were chased, shot at with bb guns by adult home owners, and kicked and slapped by any adult that felt we looked bad or did something they didn't approve of ( like jumping over their fence, or cutting through their yard.

And... We all lived...there were no complaints, and no one was offended. It was the way it was.

My mom and dad were Irish Protestants and we lived in a Croatian Catholic neighborhood. All my friends were Yugoslavian Catholics but my parents were prejudiced like most people of that time. I wasn't allowed to have a Catholic girl friend and when I said I thought interracial married people were neat, like salt and pepper, I was quickly told to stop thinking like that. My parents arranged for me to go to an all white elementary school because there were hispanics going to the school in the district where I lived and they didn't want me to go to school in a 'rough' neighborhood. I think I grew up remarkably open minded despite my upbringing.

I have my own opinions. I didn't get them from other people's views being imposed on me, but from life experiences.
My mother always had a fascination with what gay men would buy in the grocery store. If she saw a gay man or men, she would inspect their shopping cart. Out of her observations she came to a conclusion that to this day puts the family in stitches when we talk about it. You have to remember that this came from the sixties when a gay was called "queer". Her famous proclamation was: "All queers eat turnips".

When I was young, a gay person was happy and a queer person was one who wouldn't want to go beat up homos with you.

Supper.... Shells with Kidney beans, and fried onions.

I like it when the onions get sweated to a light brown, then add the beans to cook with the onions like 20 minutes on low. Boil the shells ( medium shells ), drain and throw the beans / onions back in the pot.
Add fresh good olive oil, and dig in. ..... It's like popcorn. You cannot stop eating it.
I love when there is a shell spooned inside another shell. Ummmm!
