Arrgh, I have a cold. What tedious misery. The following is pretty much stream of consciousness nattering. Treat it as you will.
Apple Pie moonshine from Old Republic Distillery is very good mixed about half and half with boiling water and with a bit of hot buttered rum “batter” aka equal parts of butter and brown sugar and cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice to your taste all mixed together.
Pat Robertson is making more prophecies,, when all of the others have failed: failed prophecies. Now, when will the TrueChristians demand he be stoned to death as their god supposedly requires?
Odd Squad on PBS is great. The humor is far more sophisticated than I would have guessed for a children’s show, much more of the absurd situational humor and word play similar to what you would see on a movie like Airplane! Yep, this because I was stuck watching daytime tv suffering with my cold.
I thought I’d tell a silly story from my youth thanks to Mr. Merveilleux showing us some pics of handsome fellows in the military. Back when I was young, the song Age of Aquarius was on the radio. I really liked it (was really into astrology) and got the album it was on with money I got for a birthday. Yes indeed, I got the album of the musical “Hair” when I was hmmm, probably somewhere in the 8-10 age range. Now, I was often singing all of the songs at the top of my lungs in my room. And if you know the album, some of the songs are a tad “interesting” for a little girl to be singing. I have no idea if my parents just didn’t hear me, didn’t want to deal with me or didn’t know what the words I was singing actually meant (I did eventually look up those words and found out why some of those words were “so nasty”…). Now, add to this that I never saw the musical until maybe five years ago, and had no idea what visuals were going with the songs. I watched it with my husband who found it hilarious to see my reactions to what I had been singing with such vigor in my youth. White boys and black boys are so pretty indeed 🙂
Ah, see what trouble you can get into being far too precocious in reading but not quite so precocious in comprehension…
Well, that’s it for today. I need some more cold medicine. It’s a sign when it took me a good three tries to type medicine correctly…

Age of Aquarius and Hair – bit of a hippy, were you, Club? 😉 Sorry to hear you’re feeling under the weather. I had a cold before Christmas and was so stuffed up one night that hubby made me a whiskey and apple cider. (ordinarily, I wouldn’t drink hard liquor ‘for love nor money’) It worked like a charm! I think it was the only night I had a good sleep in weeks! So I think you’re on the right track with the moonshine. 🙂 Get well soon!
I was a bit too young to be a hippy, though there was a commune right down the road, complete with VW bus. Very nice folks. Never found out why they were in middle of nowhere western PA.
Sorry to hear about the cold. But your meds sound rather tasty and enjoyable.
“Aquarius” was my favorite song back in the day!
I second SOM’s sentiment.
Alas, my cold meds wasn’t the moonshine. It was the plop-fizz cold stuff.
Get well club
