And that's how it spreads.
The heck with social distancing....let's play ! :D
Hi Bill ...... that's why I love traveling ..... it's a great eyeopener. I live in a little place where people are born here and die here without ever going anywhere. They're happy but then again ..... they don't know what they're missing.
That barber shop sounds wonderful. And that's another thing about traveling .... it gives you memories. But don't go traveling now ...... you stay safe. I'm having four months self isolation as expected from me by our government. Hopefully it will be all over by then ..... fingers crossed.
I had an older italian friend that had a barber shop. Going in there was like what you would think of from "The Godfather." Older men sitting around talking "family" business. South Philly was a pretty neat place. Some very good memories from there. Being from a small farm town in MI, it was an eye opener.
Hey MD. Be around just looking no comments lately. I spent some time in South Philadelphia and saw the same type joints there. Italian "Social" clubs ;)
Oh yeah? You speaking from personal experience?
Only kidding. Hi Bill ...... seems ages since you were on here. I'm glad you're still with us. :D
This place makes me think of a Yakuza parlor where the "Dons" would meet.
People of whatever age just don't want to go for a drink if they can't smoke. I don't think the legal age makes much difference in the UK .... kids seem to drink before they get to 18. Also .... you can buy alcohol in stores for a fraction of pub prices so if you've got to do your smoking at home .... you might as well drink there. I'm glad I never bothered with smoking ..... one vice is enough. Well ...... two if you count chocolate. LOL!!!!!!
Interesting. The non-smoking laws don't seem to have affected bars here in US. I wonder if the difference in legal drinking age has anything to do with it. Legal age to buy alcokol here is 21, as opposed to 18 in UK.
LOL! British pubs used to be like that until they brought in the no smoking rules. Now the pubs are empty and lots have closed down
Looks like Sakurajima has penetrated the game room.
Hi Homely .... I've got everything but the mushrooms for that stroganoff but I'll be cooking it this week. Such a simple recipe.
Thank you for editing the link, MD! That mushroom dish was so good that we even ate all the leftovers... and we are notorious haters of leftovers!
Iran’s Tasnim news agency is now quoting Iranian officials warning that if the US retaliates to these strikes in Iraq, Hezbollah will fire rockets at Israel — a threat to widen the conflict and bring Iran’s regional allies into play.
That doesn't sound good. Trump is going to make a speech later. He will probably make things worse.
stargzr ..... this is what I cooked. It's easy and vegetarian:
Here is Homely's edited link .... :D
Thanks much, Homely. Found it with no problem and I promise I will try it......will let you know. BTW when you post a link remove the "s" from http and you'll be fine.
First, Stargzr, if you're looking for something that is fast and super easy, this recipe is from the same blog that MD has enjoyed and it has instructions to cook on the stovetop rather than the instant pot, if you don't have one of those contraptions. I made it last night and it was truly delicious - read all the comments for substitutions: https://www.feastingathome.com/instant-pot-mushroom-stroganoff/
For some reason my links don't link, so maybe MD can post it properly for me?
MD - to clarify, the facilities hit (so far) tonight are Iraqui bases at which US personnel are housed. I've been watching the messaging from Iran - not sure they really want to escalate. To me, looks like they want to avenge but not go further. The first three reports in the fog of war are always incorrect, so I am waiting for more, but the US is presently reporting no casualties. There is the chance that this will be it. Not sure. Have to wait and see. Between that and the PR earthquakes, I think I am in for a long night.
Missiles have fired from Iran at Erbil in northern Iraq, as well as Al Asad Air Base in the west, according to ABC News.
No matter how old our kids get ... we still worry.
I think the US might be at war.
That earthquake was terrible.....hope your dtr is OK and no further quakes occur !
I laughed to hear about your "hurt heart." I just never had an interest in food - preparing or whatever. I was a Daddy's girl and followed him around the workshop all day long, thereby learning all sorts of skills. (I could easily hang MD's pictures) LOL
However, I will definitely try a recipe from your link, if only to prove to myself that I can do it !
