What Shall We Bake Today?

Pumpkin Pie is usually the chosen dessert for Thanksgiving dinner, but pumpkin roll is a wonderful alternate!


3 eggs

1 cup sugar

¾ cup flour

2 tsp cinnamon

2/3 cup pumpkin

1 tsp baking soda

Preheat oven to 350*.  Line a cookie sheet with waxed paper.  Beat the 3 eggs with the cup of sugar.  Add the flour, cinnamon, pumpkin and the baking soda.  Mix well.

Spread onto wax paper lined cookie sheet.  Bake 10-15 minutes.   Cool slightly.  Turn onto terry towel sprinkled with powdered sugar.  Roll up like a jellyroll and let cool completely.

When cool, unroll and spread filling onto cake and roll back up.


12 ounces cream cheese, softened

4 Tbsp butter, softened

1 cup powdered sugar

Cream the cream cheese and the butter.  Add the powdered sugar.

Viola! Pumpkin Roll! 

Now if you’re interested in making a pumpkin roll with a little extra pizazz, check this out! (This is from the Sugar Hero website: http://www.sugarhero.com)

It’s created by using a template and a batter made of butter, egg whites, sugar and flour to pipe the gorgeous leaves in the jelly roll pan ahead of time.  (Full instructions can be found at their website.)  Then the pumpkin roll recipe proceeds as above.  The design bakes onto the pumpkin cake part and creates a beautiful presentation.

    1. Morning! We almost got to 50 yesterday! 26 now but we’ve got a warming trend coming. I looked outside when I first got up at 6:30 and could see little paw prints, with an empty food dish. I grabbed the dish and filled it – LM was there by the time I got back to the door! His coat is very thick now and he is turning into a chunky-munky! His ear isn’t so raw today.

      I ran out to the local grocery store to p/u some creamer and candy and saw the gal who works at Subway here – I used to go there frequently but haven’t now for a few years. She said hi, I see you’re still around, haven’t seen you in so long….I explained that yes, I’m still here but have truly become a hermit, living on-line, with friends from all over the country and, indeed, the world. It works for me……of course, I didn’t get into the “why” of it….she wouldn’t get it.

    Our Country has never seen a Weaponized “Justice” Department, and FBI, like they are witnessing right now. They are doing everything they can, much of it unlawful, to protect an incompetent and corrupt President, and his drug addicted criminal son. The system is Tainted and Rigged, just like our Elections are Tainted and Rigged, and just like our Border is for sale to the highest bidder, OPEN, and a disgrace to humanity. In the meantime, our Country is failing at a level never seen before!!!

    Bill Barr’s latest anti-Trump diatribe explodes the myth that he’s a wise man

    Whether Bill Barr or Merrick Garland or the head of the White House janitorial services thinks the documents are “sensitive” is utterly irrelevant.

    When government drones “classify” documents, they do so only because their authority comes from the president. They can neither challenge nor exceed the president’s authority. Neither can Congress for that matter.

    Because Trump was still the President of the United States, at the very moment when he transferred those documents from the White House to his private residence, they were automatically and instantly declassified. After that, nothing in his possession was either “sensitive” or “classified,” and neither the current nor the past Attorney General can change that fact.

  7. Hi Pat, Filly, & gang! Hope everyone has a wonderful week filled with Thanksgiving!

    In our Curren family ongoing saga today Hubby started Trucking Job #4. His last job, which lasted the longest, took a significant toll on his body & resulted in nearly daily injuries & some long-term back issues, which are finally pseudo-resolving after weeks of problems. That job was close by, with negligible transit time, but now he’s nearly an hour away with a Start Time of 5am–yikes! If you think of me or us please consider praying for Michael as he goes through yet another transition…

    We’ve taken in a friend temporarily, who has been going through personal & family crises. We’re not sure how long he’ll be with us so we’re playing it all by ear. We had a talk the other night about healing mentally, emotionally, spiritually, physically, & relationally. He Seems open to what God might do in his life in & through his stay in Michigan…so we’d appreciate prayers for him too–his name is John.

    He took the J & J shot a while back & I discussed the possibility that Some of what has been happening in his life Might be connected to clot shot issues. He came across as open to the possibility of trying some post-shot strategies to see if any of the suggested approaches seem to help him. He even seemed open to trying Ivermectin, though I put myself forward as the first guinea pig here, once we get IVM, to hopefully clear up some of my long-hauler’s issues…we’ll see.

    In addition to the normal holidays we all celebrate we also have to through family birthdays in the mix. Our 4 Curren men have b-days within 2 weeks of each other over the end of Nov & start of Dec. Then daughter & son-in-law & I are all in February. So we had an impromptu gathering of Most of our family last night to celebrate our oldest son’s b-day a bit early. Grandbaby Lilah got passed around to practically everybody & she was a real trooper.

    My middle son, Brandon, made a late appearance after his first day doing EMT training clinicals in & around the city of Detroit. He had some interesting stories to tell & even had one of the severe cases die within an hour of them bringing her to the hospital. She had “veins filled with clots” that were so severe that they couldn’t start an IV on her anywhere & tried to put in some type of arterial line. I raised the issue that these “clots” could have been shot related, but he seemed to think they were reflective of years of issues, that pre-dated the time period of the shot. Her lower legs were swollen to nearly twice their normal size & her blood sugar was in the 30’s when they first got to her. Apparently she was some type of hoarder with a filthy house & excessive pets. What a way to start one’s real world experience…

    So B has 4 more clinical rotations to get in within the next couple of weeks. 2 more are ambulance runs & 2 are in the ER. He was getting an earful from the people riding along in the ambulance & it sounds like things are pretty rough in & around Detroit, even w/ private ambulance services. Thankfully he’s getting these clinicals at the One site that accepts the “non-vax’d” so that’s a PTL! Apparently this site is in extreme demand (perhaps by other students/trainees that wanted “vax” exemptions) so he was told that his clinicals in the ER will be Insane w/ EMT students, nursing students, & other classes of trainees duking it out over the patients. He’s going to need to be assertive to get in the needed hands-on experiences!

    In other family news our daughter & son-in-law closed on their house this past week. It’s just a few blocks away from us & they’ve already stopped by a couple different times to borrow tools & advice from Michael, in particular, on certain home improvement activities. They have a to-do list from city inspectors that they are required to complete before they will be granted occupancy. They Hope to get moved in by the middle of next month, but that remains to be seen. One annoying set-back was that the seller had turned off the gas (this was against agreed on terms–sigh) & the gas company can’t come out to turn it back on for another 2 weeks. So they’ve shut off the water & borrowed some space heaters from us & our son so that they can hopefully prevent the pipes from freezing. When they stopped by their house it was 45 inside, but given it was under 20 outside that’s “better” than it might have been.

    When we were newlyweds & renting my parents’ Northern Michigan cottage 30 years ago we had to wait for more than a month to get a phone line installed–they literally had to run it Again from the telephone pole! I don’t know why that would be for the cottage had had a phone continuously from the ’40’s (at least) to the late ’80’s & we were living there about a half decade after the last Resident had died. Perhaps it’s a Northern Michigan thing, but my brother just had to head Up North to complete the winterization of the Cottage & also to get his boat stored in that garage. He’d had his boat in “the shop” that was recommended by our neighbor, who is a local & retired cop, a really good guy. Anyway that shop had my bro’s boat for Months & he touched base with them by phone on roughly a weekly basis & they Never got around to working on it–just wow! In the past they’ve left it in a shop about an hour south so there’s a lot of extra driving to & from repairs…so this more local option had Looked like a good deal when it was presented…sigh…

    Hubby likes to say that people remark that the best day of their life is the day they get a boat & the second best day is the day they get rid of their boat! My brother acquired that boat in a partial bartering situation after doing significant contract work w/ a family friend, & they have gotten A Lot of mileage out of its usage, but boy it seems like there are significant pain-in-the-butt repairs required with Way too much regularity!

    Anyway, blessings to All!!! May the Lord continue to provide more than we could ask or imagine in His presence, peace, & provision for all of our needs, according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus! Have a Blessed Thanksgiving!

Ultimately she would do the “potty dance” & occasionally bark to be let out 🙂 especially away from those keys 🙂

  8. ultra maggot circumventing law once again…with illegals…making HIS OWN entry program…and mccarthy won’t impeach him? he’s making a mockery of congressional authority

    Bensman writes that experts say it’s downright illegal:

    One other reason why the Biden administration does not seem eager to publicize what it is doing at the ports: Some experts question the legality of its use of humanitarian parole.

    “Humanitarian parole was never intended to be used this way, and Congress made it clear that parole is not meant to be a supplement to immigration policy,” said Elizabeth Jacobs, a CIS fellow and former U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services official, when informed that the escort hand-off program was being used much more broadly than reported. Jacobs said humanitarian parole can only be used on a case-by-case basis for no other purpose than urgent humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit.

    “If these accounts are true, the United States government is acting directly in conflict with the limits and procedures established under federal law,” Jacobs said. “Escorting inadmissible aliens into the United States for the sole purpose of granting these aliens work authorization is a blatant abdication of DHS’s responsibility to uphold federal immigration law.”

    Joe Biden’s got his own “alternative immigration program” as Bensman puts it, an apparent offshoot, bigger and better funded, than a previous report last June of Border Patrol agents going into migrant shelters to recruit single moms for entry into the U.S. Now they’ve gone industrial scale, bringing them on in without any consent of either Congress or the people who must live with the results of mass illegal migration from more than 100 countries around the world at a time of recession and coming job losses as well as high inflation brought on by government spending. The migrants have told Bensman that things have never been better now.

    Too bad there’s a price for this and Americans here are going to pay it, powerless to stop it unless an incoming Congress cuts that funding off immediately.

  11. ‘Congressman Warren Davidson urges Congress to pass the Vaccine Passport Prevention Act — To protect civil liberties.”
    By Ken Macon
    Posted 2:47 pm November 20, 2022

    ENTIRE ARTICLE: “Rep. Warren Davidson (R-OH) is urging Congress to pass a bill he introduced last year that would ban the use of vaccine passports for future use. The bill is aimed at protecting Americans from the federal government’s overreach under the guise of responding to the pandemic. We obtained a copy of the bill for you here.

    The bill, called the Vaccine Passport Prevention Act, would, with a few exceptions, prevent the federal, state, and local governments, as well as private entities, from forcing Americans to provide proof of vaccination to access goods and services, and to continue working.

    If passed, the legislation would allow people to sue their employers and governments for requiring proof of vaccination against the coronavirus. The bill would only allow exemptions for schools, medical facilities, and enlisted service members. However, schools would be required to allow vaccination exemptions for medical, religious, and conscience reasons. Medical reasons would include naturally acquired immunity.

    “The point of this bill is simple,” said Davidson during the bill’s introduction. “I’m committed to defending freedom. Freedom surrendered is rarely reclaimed, so now is the time to act. Americans have a right to keep their medical decisions private.

    “Neither businesses nor governments should compel access to confidential information as a condition of restoring our way of life. Discrimination that separates healthy people from other healthy people based on vaccine status is unconstitutional. Throughout the pandemic, we’ve seen states deny Americans a republican form of government in the name of public health. Now that the pandemic is over, they are trying to maintain power. Banning vaccine passports has become sadly necessary to thwart these naked power grabs seeking to enable even more control for big government and big business over the lives of individual Americans.”

    Maybe one day I’ll get how to link :(- This is an *excerpt* from http://www.americanthinker.com (Andrea Widburg) – an excellent article re the *bottom feeder* Bill Barr who thinks there is a *case* against PDJT re MAL documents.

    That’s because the president—and only the president—has plenary power when it comes to national security matters. Plenary power means “a power that has been granted to a body or person in absolute terms, with no review of or limitations upon the exercise of that power.”

    The leading case on this is Navy v. Egan, 484 U.S. 518 (1988), which considered whether a civil service board can review a “laborer’s” being denied national security clearance. In that context, the Supreme Court was clear about the president’s plenary power:

    The President, after all, is the “Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States.” U.S.Const., Art. II, § 2. His authority to classify and control access to information bearing on national security and to determine whether an individual is sufficiently trustworthy to occupy a position in the Executive Branch that will give that person access to such information flows primarily from this constitutional investment of power in the President, and exists quite apart from any explicit congressional grant. See Cafeteria Workers v. McElroy, 367 U. S. 886, 367 U. S. 890 (1961).

  15. how ridiculous is this? first they conservatives if they blame trump for the midterms? most blame McLeadership (turtle, mccarthy, ronna), but then the poll asks LIBERALS who they blame–sit down! they blame trump….why ASK LIBERALS at all?
    entire article

    A new Rasmussen poll sponsored by The National Pulse has revealed that self-identifying conservatives and Republicans blame the party’s institutional leadership – Kevin McCarthy, Mitch McConnell, and Ronna McDaniel – far more than they blame presidential front runner President Donald J. Trump for the party’s underperformance in America’s recent mid term elections.

    The trio at the head of the party – dubbed the ‘McLeadership’ by this publication – have quietly attempted to foist blame onto President Trump for the results since November 8th. So too have Republican mega donors who ran to corporate news outlets before the mid terms, declaring their allegiances to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, while turning their backs on Trump.

    But ordinary, likely voters appear to be rejecting what the GOP and their bankrollers are selling. According to the latest data by Rasmussen, just 16 percent of conservative voters blamed individual candidates, and 20 percent blamed Donald Trump. More than double those who blamed Trump – 43 percent of conservative voters – blamed Republican leadership.

    They were asked: “Republicans did not do as well in this vear’s elections as many had expected. Who is most to blame for this, the individual candidates, the Republican Party leadership, Donald Trump? Or is it nobody’s fault?”

    Seventeen percent of those asked said it was “nobody’s fault,” while five percent were unsure.

    The numbers flip drastically when asking self-identified liberals, raising questions as to who anti-Trump Republicans are now throwing their analysis in with. The ostensibly conservative National Review, for example, appears to sympathize far closer with left wing analysis than right.

    Liberals blamed Trump for the GOP underperformance to the tune of 46 percent, versus 29 percent for the McLeadership, and 15 percent for individual candidates.

    The same poll also asked likely voters if Republican control of the House of Representatives was a good thing or a bad thing for the country, with 48 percent say it is good for America, while 34 percent said it was bad. Fourteen percent said it would make no difference, and three percent were unsure.

    The news comes as Republicans jockey for top positions in the House, while also attempting to place blame on anyone but their own leadership for their failure to take the Senate and more gubernatorial seats around the country.

  17. “Turkey Denied Presidential Pardon After Photos Emerge Of It Attending January 6”
    U.S. · Nov 21, 2022 · BabylonBee.com

    “WASHINGTON, D.C. — In a break from a long-standing tradition, the White House announced that this year’s Thanksgiving turkey would not receive a ceremonial pardon from President Joe Biden after it was discovered that the turkey had attended the riot at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.

    “The turkey we had chosen for the occasion has been determined to be completely undeserving of a pardon,” said White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre in a media briefing. “The President was very eager to bestow a pardon, but unfortunately, it came to our attention that this turkey participated in the violent attack on the Capitol that attempted to overthrow the government and destroy democracy itself.”

    The turkey has been returned to police custody.

    The Biden administration learned of the scandal after it was presented with photos of the foul fowl wearing a red “Make America Great Again” baseball cap among other Trump supporters and undercover federal agents planted surreptitiously throughout the crowd on the day of the riot. Though other witnesses vehemently argued that the turkey had valiantly attempted to prevent agitators from vandalizing the Capitol and breaching its doors, security camera footage of the MAGA turkey wandering the halls and gobbling in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office was considered particularly damning.

    “Listen, these dangerous ultra-MAGA birds are a serious threat to our nation, folks,” President Biden said in brief remarks about the situation. “They must be dealt with and put in their rightful place, which is on my dinner table. End of speech. Walk away from podium.”

    At publishing time, all requests made to interview the turkey had been denied. It was reported that the bird was placed in solitary confinement at an undisclosed location as it awaited its execution, brining, and deep-frying without due process.”
    “Taliban Quits Twitter To Protest Return Of Trump”
    INTERNET · Nov 21, 2022 · BabylonBee.com

    “KANDAHAR, AFGHANISTAN — Individuals and organizations are quitting Twitter in droves to protest Elon Musk’s “recklessly violent” decision to reinstate Donald Trump’s Twitter account, chief among them the Taliban.

    The legitimate government’s final tweet read, “So long, and thanks for all the American weapons!”

    “Long has Twitter served as a safe haven of free speech for North Korea, Iran, Al Qaeda, and ourselves,” said Taliban Spokesman Badrash Onmyrhir, still tired from a long day of lashing young women for daring to remove their head scarves. “But with Trump’s return to the platform, we no longer feel safe from his violent and hurtful tweets.”

    North Korean Press Secretary, Hae Yu Suk applauded the Taliban’s decision, saying: “We, The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea have followed The Taliban’s courageous gesture and have quit Twitter for fears that allowing a violent lunatic access to the free speech platform may lead to the deaths of millions.”

    Al Qaeda is reportedly up in the air about quitting Twitter, stating legitimate fears that Trump’s mean tweets could reign terror upon the world, while at the same time recognizing Twitter as a powerful tool for recruiting suicide bombers.

    At publishing time, the Taliban had already resumed using Twitter, stating in a tweet, “After pausing for much of the weekend to assess our concerns, The Taliban is resuming its activity on Twitter as we continue to monitor the situation.”
    “Nancy Pelosi Steals Speaker Of The House Podium As Souvenir”
    POLITICS · Nov 19, 2022 · BabylonBee.com

    “WASHINGTON, D.C. — After being fired from her role as Speaker of the House, Representative Nancy Pelosi was photographed nonchalantly stealing the official Speaker podium to take home as a souvenir.

    “Later, suckers!” said Ms. Pelosi as she strolled by House Republicans, still toting the podium. “Man, it feels good to be a gangster.”

    Capitol Police have not yet discovered the whereabouts of the missing podium, but are following up on several leads. “We actually just got a call about a woman in a pantsuit passed out drunk by the Reflecting Pool, so the podium is probably nearby,” said Officer Jon Farthing. “Still, just to be safe, we will probably send an agent to go pistol whip Chip Gaines.”

    Ms. Pelosi was elected Speaker of the House in 2007, though it was not until a brief period of sobriety in May 2008 that Pelosi first realized that she had become Speaker. She primarily dedicated her tenure to murdering as many babies as possible, then occasionally pretending to be Catholic just to troll people. Having lost power in 2011, Ms. Pelosi regained her title as Speaker in 2019, after which she delivered unmatched insider trading results – netting the millions of dollars necessary to keep her eyebrows elevated.

    At publishing time, the Capitol police had reported the podium was discovered in the possession of some guy named Ray Epps.”
