Maybe we can get Ron some of Randy's waffels by way of Alask Air drop. A bush piolet could just drop them as he flies over. Those guys have pretty good aim I hear.

Off the subject of waffels but boy am I steamed.....
I designed and bought signs for Tim's business. For over a year and a half we have had a sign in front of my closest neighbors house in a little island. Everyone knows us it is a small community of about 35 people. We have a "new" renter. He stole my sign and put up a "Watch for Motorcycles" sign. The island is big enough for both signs, but he totally took my sign. My sign I paid for that generates business. I feel like he reached in my pokect and took my money. So I was bad.....way bad.... I took his sign, I know he got it for free from the MC Club, but why should he be able to get away with stealing corporate property. I can't prove he took it but everyone knows who did it. We are afraid if we confront him it could get ugly. He isn't a Hell's Angel or anything but he is a low life.
OK Thanks for that I am just soooooo peeved!

I hear you Crabber. I know the kind. I think we lost one from our family last year. I tell my daughter to watch out for the scum. If he is being nice it means he wants something from her. What a nasty thing to do. I'm glad you took his sign.
 
I have something to say about this. CG. I would have you and Tim go to this gentleman's home to just say,"May we please have our sign back?I'll give you YOUR sign back :)" You've got a 'WildThing' in your neighborhood. Get to learn his personality and that's the key. Face him :) Take him an Oreo. "What kind of bike do you have? Can we see it?" SMOOZING gets you a long way. You'll be friendly in a few moments. Just a thought b/c you catch more flies with sugar than you do with vinegar. Curbie

I really wanted to do the sign trade and Tim said no , that there was no telling what he might do.

Our town is a little podunk town in the 2nd poorest county in the state. Our downtown buildings are in disrepair. There are most of our businesses here but it is just shabby.
So today as I was tasking in town I had to park and walk due to construction. I drive down this side street all the time but never really pay attention.
We have an arts community that has taken on the task of "Brightening" the city with paintings. I like this one as it is all native flowers. Thought you might enjoy seeing this.

I have cooked pancakes for up ro 100 people at a time, so I think I could handle this bunch. I don't use pancake or waffle mixes though so I can't answer the question from experience, Curbie. I wouldn't hesitate to try it though and would add an egg and a couple of tablespoons of vegetable oil to the pancake mix. I haven't used Bisquik or any other pancake or waffle mix for probably 45 years.
 
CG, I SHALL be the mediator! But he better be ready for 'Pittsburgh catitude'! Yeah....me as a mediator....we don't always say the right things but we KNOW how to smooze. GIVE ME MY SIGN AND I'LL GIVE YOU YOURS! Then you hit him in the head with his sign :) Those pics are lovely. Thanks! Randy, how do you 'start' sourdough'? I know it has something to do with yeast. Where do you keep it? I'd love to try it. Curbie the Mediator

...dropped with a small parachute!
Hmmm? Illegal waffles cross boarder without being declared!!
Might be cheaper to pay for a passport and fly!
 
I'll bet Randy is building little parachutes as we speak! I have a passport so I could be the bush pilot. Geez, who else has a passport who actually knows how to fly a plane. I could be co-pilot (that's called 'comic relief' as we drop tiny waffles out of an airplane! THIS is truning out to be able to work. Ron, you'll have to set your house on fire so we know where to drop this waffles. LOL! Curbie :)

Curbie,
I hope you are not flying or dropping with your one eye the way it is. We could be so far off that you would drop them right in the border patrol office and then where would we be? Ron would have no house left after setting it on fire so we could find it. Unless it was the big house with hots and a cot.
Ron , I would have to say you should fain ignorance if border patrol shows up at your door with waffels from the USA. Curbie who?? LOL!

I'll paint a large Bull's Eye on the roof!;)
I'll plead ignorance if the customs come after me after the plane is shot down for flying without clearance, or filing a flight plan!:eek:
 
I know how to write lesson plans but I don't know how to write a flight plan.......Hey, CG, MAYBE we could be escorted by F-18's! Those pilots are usually cute :) This is a great idea! WOOHOO! Curbie

I keep my starter in a container in the refrigerator. It will keep without using any for several weeks that way. I also keep some dried flakes in the freezer. Those can be put into a small bowl or cup with some water and a tablespoon of flour or so. Cover it with something loose so it will vent and let it sit. Stir it once in awhile and in a couple or three days it will start to bubble. Add more flour and water and let that work. In a few days you have a supply of starter. If you want to try it, I can send you a couple of flakes in the mail. I also would include recipes and instructions. My brother wrote up some things several years back and it is pretty comprehensive. He lost his starter a few years ago and I was able to get him started again with those flakes. It only takes one and the others can be put in your freezer in case you lose your starter for some reason. One lady I sent some flakes to had her starter in the oven and turned it on once without looking. That killed the starter. Starter is a live organism (yeast) and will not tolerate much heat. Obviously when you bake the bread or biscuits it kills the yeast, but the flavor is there.
 
OH, I would love some, Randy. Thank you for offering. I promise I will try not to hurt them b/c they're just little wee ones. I'm so excited!
I went to the eye doctor today and the contact lens specialist lady said," How do you see out of this?" no very well which is why I haven't been driving.... She said,"This is a MESS!" Most of the time I don't even put it in b/c it sort of hurts so it's the wrong shape and the wrong strength. She is a love and said,"LOOK~ if it 's the LAST thing we do, we're going to get you seeing 20/20!" She is now a breast cancer survivor she told me ~Chemo, radaition, and all the rest that goes along with it~off for 6 months. 9 years ago, my eye doctor said,"I'll see you once." MTM and I always think about that statement. FLAKES and my EYE ! What a day!~Curbie

Okay, I'll start putting stuff together. I don't know if I have sent you a disc with my salsa recipes on it, but that will be included since it has the sourdough recipes on it also. I might have to send you some fiddle music to play when you are cooking too. That goes with sourdough, you know. My sourdougfh starter originated from a famous bakery in SanFrancisco, I think. My brother would never tell me which one as I guess he was sworn to secrecy. It doesn't chnage the taste any. You already have my e-mail address do if you have any questions, you can always reach me that way too.
