Extra Money

Wanting to earn some extra money a blonde, decided to hire herself out as a "handy-woman" and started canvassing a nearby well-to-do neighborhood.

She went to the front door of the first house, and asked the owner if he had any odd jobs for her to do.
"Well, I guess I could use somebody to paint my porch," he said, "How much will you charge me?"

The blonde quickly responded, "How about $50?"

The man agreed and told her that the paint and everything she would need were in the garage.

The man's wife, hearing the conversation, said to her husband, "Does she realize that our porch goes all the way around the house?" He responded, "That's a bit cynical, isn't it?" The wife replied, "You're right. I guess I'm starting to believe all those blonde' jokes we've been getting by e-mail lately."

A short time later, the blonde came to the door to collect her money.

"You're finished already?" the husband asked.

"Yes," the blonde replied, "and I had paint left over, so I gave it two coats.

Impressed, the man reached into his pocket for the $50.00 and handed it to her. "And by the way," the blonde added, "it's not a Porch, it's a Lexus."


"Eagles may soar, but weasels
don't get sucked into jet engines."

Lounging at the movies: Texas Chainsaw Massacre

What do you do when you pick up a hitch hiker and she blows her brain out the back window of your VW van on the way to a Skynyrd concert? You go and find the craziest bunch of Texas Cannibals to chase you around until you are exhausted.

We liked Texas Chainsaw Massacre, starring Jessica Beal (not hard on the eyes). There were other people, but I cannot remember their names.

This well done re-make of the 1974 horror classic is a scary look into what happens if you spend too much time in isolation, have a family member you call uncle dad and have poor eating habits.

Matrix (the last one): Mostly the same people but you get to see Zion.

We went to see this movie because we love to see movies. Super film and the standard, out of the pan and into the fire action. This episode leans a little towards the good book. They present Armageddon, a blind prophet, a fallen angel, among other religious themes. A great action movie with the finest of action special effects. See it on the big screen.

B. K. Lounge Eats: Chipotle Mashed Potatoes

Mmmmm, mashed potatoes. We love them and they love us right back. We have found a different and new path to having a traditional dish, Chipotle Mashed Potatoes. For those who are lacking in the skills of making mashed potatoes, we will start from the beginning. In the beginning there was primordial ooze, just kidding, this would take too long. We will be making enough mashed potatoes for about 3 people. Usually we calculate about 2 potatoes for each person and 4 potatoes for every person who belongs to the butter of the month club.

6 medium to large Idaho Potatoes
Milk or Cream
1/2 stick of Butter
1 head of roasted Garlic*
4-5 dried Chipotle Peppers, ground to a powder

Now that you have probably had a sharp pain in your chest from reading the ingredients. Have a beer and try to relax, cooking is fun.


Peel potatoes and quarter. Place in a pan large enough to hold all the spuds. Cover in water and bring to a boil. Add about a Tablespoon or more salt and boil for 20 minutes or until spuds are tender.

Drain and return to pot. Add the butter, roasted garlic and chipotle powder. Begin mashing potatoes and adding milk until you have the consistency of mashed potatoes. Since every one has their own genetically embedded favorite mashed potato consistency, you will have to make this decision on your own.

That's it! Place mashed potatoes in a fancy bowl and serve.

*ROASTED GARLIC: You can roast garlic in the oven or in the microwave. We prefer the microwave because it is 75 times faster. Take an entire head of garlic and cut off the top so the tips of the cloves are exposed. brush with olive oil and microwave for 1.5 minutes. The cloves should be soft and really hot, If not give them another minute.

Squeeze out the roasted garlic discarding the husk. Mash with a fork and add to the potatoes.

Don't let worry kill you -- let the church help.
