I was very disappointed when Gore did not win the election & sorry he didn't run in the last one.

I was disappointed it wasn't Edwards instead of Kerry in the last election, and surprised he didn't make it farther in this one.

Amen to both. Much as I'm sick of the Democratic hostilities and fighting going on, I'd only vote for McCain if he ran as a Democrat. I don't want any vestige of the current lousy regime loitering in DC any longer than necessary. It will take years to clean up that trash.

I must be searching incorrectly.  I can find references that I've been asking about Wacky Noodles since the first time they came up [since I've been on the board] last October, but no one has ever replied.

Ah, well.  I shall savor the mystery.

I actually like McCain and Clinton and Obama...but I prefer Obama over the other two.

Of course, I have paid very little attention to any of it so far...when it is decided who is actually going to run, then I will pay more attention I guess. What I have seen of Obama is that he wants to bring different types of people together...rather then playing the us against them card. I like seeing that for a change.

I really didn't think the Wright thing was such a big deal, at least what I heard of it. Isn't Hillary a Baptist? It would be curious to know what kinds of things her Baptist minister(s) preaches....I used to go to a Baptist church...I would certainly not call it a loving church, not the one I attended.

Thanks, singdaw!


"Lapsed Cat-Licks" was a play on the words "lapsed Catholics", which I'm sure George "has" heard of.  :D

Oh, that makes sense.  Yes, I've heard of those. ;)

I was born into a Catholic family, but I was never really a practicing Catholic, so I don't think I can be considered as lapsed. ::)

You have to go into the "older archives" back on January 11, 2003:

Here's the specific entry from that time:

UNSEEMLY WACKY NOODLES

1 12oz. bag of wide egg noodles, mostaciolli or bow tie pasta (your choice).

Boil them noodles.

Drain them noodles and put 'em back in the pot and put the pot back on the stove and put the flame on low.

To the noodles add the following:

One can cream of mushroom soup
Fill the empty soup can with milk and add that.
Add as much dried minced onion as you like (the kind you find in the seasoning section of your market)
Add salt and pepper
Add two tablespoons or a bit more of ketchup (don't be scared, you must trust me - this is basically for color and it adds just the right flavor ultimately)
Mix it all together whilst singing Beat Me Daddy Eight to the Bar
When it is heated through and through add five to eight ounces of sour cream (depending on your waist size) and mix again thoroughly and heat on low until hot, stirring constantly. Serve (will probably need extra salt as you serve).

Now, I know it sounds wacky, because, after all, they are Wacky Noodles, but they are delicious, kind of like stroganoff without meat. Give it a try, you'll like it for sure. -- BK

Well, that's interesting!

I don't think I've ever seen anything in the old HHW.com format.

Some day, future H/K's will look back on our posts from now and wretch with the same sense of nostalgia, I suppose.

A big presentation to sponsors was being finished up today when the order came down from on high to remove Mr. Quest from the tape. Lots of scrambling around with everyone pitching in to find replacement shots that would work with the surrounding footage.

Speaking of cancer...

My relatively young work colleague with the breast cancer had surgery and has been home for a week now.  Expected to return to work in another 3 to 4 weeks.  No further information yet from her doctors on the prognosis.

Vibes to your co-worker, Singdaw. My mom has sent me the email about that disease many times over, and it always scares me when I read it.

MBarnum, lucky you liking all three candidates.  It will be interesting if you still feel that way once you do your research.  

Do you plan to hand deliver your ballot at the last minute instead of mailing it?

Funny thing:  One of the CRITICISMS Blu-ray fans leveled at HD DVD was that HD DVD was too hard to say and that Blu-ray is more memorable and rolls off the tongue (I'm not sure what kind of tongue that is, though).

Odd, though, now that DVDs being issued in Blu-ray are being advertised as "...available Tuesday on 'Blu-ray HD DVD'!"

It's kind of like when there used to be leaded and unleaded gas.  Leaded gas was "regular" and unleaded was "unleaded."  Now that there is no leaded gas, there is "regular" unleaded and "premium" unleaded.

Oh, my goodness!  On that day, I posted a chocolate turtle cheesecake recipe that I lost and have been looking for!  Cool!! :D

And here's the recipe!

Quote
Chocolate Turtle Cheesecake

Crust:

2 cups vanilla wafer crumbs (Nilla® Wafer-type cookies)
6 tablespoons butter or margarine (melted)

Cheesecake:

14 oz bag caramels
5 oz can evaporated milk
1 cup chopped pecans (toasted)
2 eight oz packages cream cheese (softened)
˝ cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
˝ cup chocolate chips (melted)

Directions:

Combine crumbs and butter, press onto bottom and sides of 9-inch spring-form pan. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes.

In 1˝ quart heavy saucepan, melt caramels with milk over low heat, stirring frequently, until smooth. Pour over crust. Top with pecans. Combine cream cheese, sugar and vanilla, mixing at medium speed on electric mixer until well blended. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Blend in chocolate. Pour cream cheese mixture over pecans. Bake at 350° for 40 minutes. Loosen cake from rim of pan; let cool before removing rim of pan. Chill. Garnish with whipped cream, additional chopped nuts and maraschino cherries, if desired.

I got this recipe from a magazine years ago, so I hope no one minds that I didn't create it. Enjoy!

I'm off to see if anyone from my hiking group shows up on this dreary, slightly wet morning.  If not I'll hike on my own.  I'll be back before Keith leaves for the gym, that way one of us is around to prevent Sherlock from licking his foot.


Jane, in all seriousness, should you really go hiking alone?
