From last night:
Is all your snow gone, George?

Mostly.  There's a bit still on the ground in some not-very-sunny areas.  It was raining yesterday, and my weather app shows the temperatures going up during the week through the weekend.

DR JOHN G I watched Temple Drake on TCM a few years ago, but the extras sound interesting.  I may purchase the DVD.

I too am looking forward to 63 & Up......I usually have to rewatch a couple of the older episodes in order to refresh my memory.....

We always had Peter Pan Peanut Butter when we were growing up.

Then as I got older I switched to Jif.  I used Skippy for awhile when Miss Annette Funicello advertised it.....but now I use Jif....crunchy.

I like a peanut butter sandwich on white bread with strawberry jam....or sometimes a peanut butter and banana sandwich.
Title: Re: THE FIRST RUN-THROUGH
Post by: Jane on January 16, 2020, 07:37:49 AM
I like Skippy, preferably chunky.  No Peter Pan or Jif for me.
Title: Re: THE FIRST RUN-THROUGH
Post by: Jane on January 16, 2020, 07:40:36 AM
I have used, and should really return to the natural unsweetened peanut butter.  I can't stir them anymore and I haven't found one I like the taste of.

Title: Re: THE FIRST RUN-THROUGH
Post by: ChasSmith on January 16, 2020, 07:59:24 AM
I don't remember what brands I grew up with. We probably had all the typical name brands in the house. Years after being away from home I tried the natural ones and mostly was not enchanted by them. More recently, though, I found I like the Smuckers brand of natural, and that has been my go-to ever since. I'd been looking for the lowest carb and sugar hit, and that came in with nice numbers. It was shocking how much sugary crap is added to so many peanut butters. Anyway, nowadays I find the taste of the regular brands really "off".

When I get a new jar, I take the time to thoroughly stir it, then into the fridge it goes and that's where it lives. It then stays constituted the way I like it, and I only need to take it out for a few minutes to soften it just enough to spread decently. It also lasts forever refrigerated.

I like it with most kinds of jams, preserves, marmalades, you name it. I grew up eating it with grape jelly and I'll still eat that if it's all that's in the house, but I far prefer the better stuff. I also like it with bananas but haven't done that in years. And yes, conventional white bread is still a favorite for peanut butter.

Bruce I was trying to remember what you had said about Jojo Rabbit and couldn't find it by searching.  It must be in the notes and if there is a way to search those I am not aware of it.

Jane, at the bottom of the page of BK's notes is a search box: Search BK's Notes Archive:  Just put your search terms in there and it'll search BK's notes, not the board's posts.  I searched "Jojo Rabbit" and found this on December 18, 2019:

Quote
Yesterday, I chose a DGA screener entitled Jojo Rabbit – I had no idea what it was – in fact, I thought it was probably some stupid animated thing.  Well, it’s anything but that.  What it is is kind of a very clever satire that takes place in Nazi Germany.  It’s fairly audacious – the filming style is kind of that quirky thing that quirky filmmakers like to do – you’ll recognize it right away – but it’s a remarkable film in that it somehow manages the almost impossible feat of negotiating all its tonal shifts.  One minute, you’re laughing out loud at the outrageousness of it, and the next you’re getting surprisingly emotional.  I watched the first forty-five minutes or so, but then had to be on my way to the theater for some callbacks and new auditions.  I was hoping that wouldn’t take too long, but we didn’t finish until around 8:45.

I don't remember what brands my parents bought when I was growing up, but at some point, I discovered Adams, then called "Old Fashioned," now "100% Natural." 
Title: Re: THE FIRST RUN-THROUGH
Post by: George on January 16, 2020, 11:49:38 AM
I didn't realize that they're from Tacoma!  I just found this article on Adams' website (https://www.adamspeanutbutter.com/about):

Quote
About Adams® Natural Peanut Butter
The Adams® Peanut Butter Company was founded in 1916 by Rex F. Adams, a local Tacoma, Washington football coach. In 1919, the Company added Old Fashioned Peanut Butter to its line of products. Its peanut butter slogan was "The freshest thing in town." Tacoma customers recall being able to purchase the delicacy of Adams® Hot Peanut Butter. The freshly packed hot peanut butter was rushed to the local grocery stores on the very day of special ads.

In 1965, Cecil and Inga Nielsen purchased the company, and it operated under the name Adams Food, Inc. The company began to prosper after eliminating unprofitable items and upgrading the processing machinery. In January 1974, production of Adams products moved to a new plant in the Port of Tacoma area.

In December 1998, The J.M. Smucker Company acquired the Adams Peanut Butter business from Agrilink Foods, Inc.

Folks, shouldn’t we also be debating:  SMOOTH OR CHUNKY?

I’m fine with both.
Title: Re: THE FIRST RUN-THROUGH
Post by: George on January 16, 2020, 11:52:47 AM
I love the taste of just peanuts and salt.  Right now, I do have some Skippy "No-Stir" all-natural peanut butter extra crunchy (I had a coupon) but you still have to stir it a bit.  Otherwise, I usually just eat it right out of the jar.  Or I'll put it on chocolate bars or something else that goes well with peanut butter.  The current jar that I have is only about a third full, so when that has all been consumed by me, I'll get some more Adams. :D

I prefer chunky, but when I got this current jar of Skippy, I got both a jar of the smooth and one of the extra crunchy, and the crunchy is what's left.

I have always disliked grape jelly.  Jelly to begin with lacks flavor.  I grew up with good English preserves & jams.

I began eating apricot when I discovered the jam doesn't stain if it drips on you.

Funny.  I never had it has a kid.  While in Ashland I would go to the growers market & buy jams from a woman, along with fresh current bread.  She had a sample of her apricot along with the bread, and they went well together.

Home again. Time to watch 7 Plus Seven. These people feel like extended family because I've watched them grow up.

Dear John G.,
If I ever meet you in real life, I'd like you to teach me how to dance.

I got word today that I'm going to be in a workshop for six full business days. It starts Tuesday. I'm not entirely looking forward to that. I just got back. But it must be done.

It would be a real exercise in patience for you. Kinda like for my daughter when she makes me watch a Star Wars movie.r

What's fascinating about the kids in 7 Plus Seven is that they're such 14-year-olds. Several of them are too shy to show their faces for the camera. They talk, but their heads are down. Others are self-confident and look straight into the camera. A few look only at, I would guess, Michael Apted as he asks them his questions. One or two seem to be bored by the whole thing. It doesn't always fit with who they were at 7, but they are the same people, even if they are living with adolescence.

TCB, every year you mention it and every year I want to ask. But I never have because it is none of my business.



Of course it is your business.  We are all family here.

Two young men had kind of a road rage incident.  When they got up to the red light, they revved up their engines, and took off drag racing when the light turned green.

About two blocks down, one car swerved, but the other one plowed into the car with my mom and her friend.  Both my mom, and her friend Ellie, were both killed.

When I was a kid my sister insisted that my mom buy Adam’s Peanut Butter because the father of one of her friends was running the plant here in Tacoma.

Both my mom and I thought it was too oily and not very tasty, so my mom returned to buying JIf.

The run-through took about three hours, but the actors are still struggling a bit with their lines, but they were carrying their scripts with them.
