Irish Coffee
This coffee makes Saturday morning cartoons a lot more interesting.

1 shot Irish Whiskey

1 teaspoon of raw sugar

1 heaped desert spoon of whipped cream

Hot strong coffee to fill the glass

Pre-warm a coffee mug. Add the whiskey. Add the sugar and stir in the coffee.
Float the whipped cream on top.
Drink the coffee through the cream (i.e. do not stir after adding the cream).

After about 4 or 5 of these be aware that other people might be laughing at your huge milk mustache. Or your shirt might be hanging out your zipper.


The Colorado State Department of Fish and Wildlife is advising hikers, hunters, fishermen, and golfers to take extra precautions and be on the alert for bears while in the Dillion, Breckenridge, and Keystone area.

They advise people to wear noise-producing devices such as little bells on their clothing to alert but not startle the bears unexpectedly. They also advise you to carry pepper spray in case of an encounter with a bear.

It is also a good idea to watch for fresh signs of bear activity. People should be able to recognize the difference between black and grizzly bear droppings: Black bear droppings are smaller and contain berries and possibly squirrel fur. Grizzly bear droppings have bells in them and smell like pepper spray.



A celebrity is someone who works hard all his life to become known
and then wears dark glasses to avoid being recognized.


Lounging Through the Gene Pool:November's favorite Darwin Award
An Iraqi terrorist , Khay Rahnajet, didn't pay enough postage on a letter bomb. It came back with "return to sender" stamped on it. Forgetting it was the bomb, he opened it and was killed in the resulting explosion.

Lounging At The Theater:
The Exorcist Re-release Review

11 new minutes of film that I could have done without. $7.50 to see this film and all I could think of was every comedy skit I had seen for the last 20 years pertaining to the Exorcist. The theater laughed out loud on several occasions.

Did You Know?
There are more than 15,000 different varieties of rice.

Other Peoples Food:
The Fontera Grill

I had the opportunity to eat at the Fontera Grill in Chicago. There menu is a virtual feast of South American flavors. I was one of the most fantastic meals I have had in a restaurant in a long time. The employees are helpful and friendly and I had an excellent time. We had 2 appetizers and 2 entrees and 6 or so margaritas and the bill was around 100 bucks. There is not many things I could spend $100 dollar's on that could bring me this much pleasure. I highly recommend the Fontera Grill for anyone who enjoys food and the dining experience.

Lounge Chow:Western Style Chili
3 teaspoons ground black pepper
2 teaspoons cayenne
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons dried oregano
2 teaspoons dried thyme
2 teaspoons Hungarian smoked paprika
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 Tablespoon Salt
2 tablespoons oil
2 lb. lean beef cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1 red bell pepper diced
1/2 green red pepper diced
1 pablano pepper diced
2 med. onions diced
2 Tablespoons flour
2 cups of beef stock
2 One lb. cans of red beans
2 bay leaves

Mix first 12 ingredients in a bowl.

Heat the oil in a pan large enough to hold everything, a five quart pot might do the trick.

Just as oil starts to smoke add the meat and 4 tablespoons or so of the seasoning you mixed earlier. Stir frequently until meat begins to brown. About 4 minutes.

Add the red, green and pablano peppers along with the onion. Stir every couple of minutes, for 8 or 9 minutes, scrapping the bottom and sides as necessary.

Add the flour and a cup of the beef stock and stir vigorously.

Add the beans, juice and all. The rest of the stock and the bay leaves. Simmer until it is the consistency of chili.

Serve with chopped onion, a splash of Tabasco and a cool beer.

Death is God's way of telling you not to be such a wise guy.

Phobia Of The Month:
Zemmiphobia: fear of the great mole rat.

You have to wonder how many people had to fear the great mole rat before they actually gave this phobia a name.
