Rants, Rips and Ramblings


This is a site for me. If you stumbled across it fine. Enjoy looking around. Maybe you’ll learn something that will adjust your world view from that of the rest of the lemmings on the left and right.

The articles posted here are either monologues or email exchanges on topics I find interesting. Because the writing is generaly “stream of consciences” there are probably spelling and grammer errors in every paragraph (or even sentence!). I don’t care – this site is for me.

Clicking on the Title at the top of the page will take you back to the beginning.

You can use this Search box to find articles on this site. Simply type in a word, hit search and every posting that has that word in it will be presented.

Kentucky Hot Brown Bake

I like to make Hot Browns with the leftovers at Thanksgiving. When I saw this recipe had to give it a try. It’s pretty good. Next time I think I’ll still make a cheese sauce to go with it. If you don’t want to make a cheese sauce from scratch this store bought Welch Rarebit sauce from Stouffer’s works well.

No Stir Risotto

This is the base for my “No-stir” Risotto.

For the “Broth” you can use Chicken stock, Beef Stock, etc.. I have even used Coconut water.

For the Vegetable that you fold in just use your imagination to fit the flavor profile you are going for. Peas, Corn, Chopped Peppers, Citrus zest, Macadamia nuts, etc…

Same for the “Acid” that. Red Wine vinegar, Rice vinegar, Pineapple, Lime or Lemon juice

Also with the type of cheese you are wanting. Parmesan, Mexican blend, etc..

Criminally Negligent: Kennedy and the Bay of Pigs

This was one of the most enjoyable papers I ever wrote in College for a PoliSi/History class.

One day the Prof announced in her lecture that Republicans were always getting us into Wars. (Note: this class was taken in the mid 80′s so she was probably just showing her hatred for Reagan). I chuckled to myself and raised my hand.  I asked just in this century what Political party were Wilson, FDR, Truman and JFK members of when we got involved with WWI, WWII, Korea and Vietnam and what party was Eisenhower and Nixon members of when the wars ended in Korea and Vietnam?


The Prof was a flaming Leftist and she loved all things JFK.  So when it came time to pick papers to write I chose her hero JFK. As you can tell from the title of the paper it was not very flattering re: JFK.  I did get an A on the paper. Probably caused her some some heart burn the night she read it.
