      An enemy is someone who means you harm and has the means to inflict it. A friend is someone who has wants to do good for you, and has the means to bestow it. I once wrote primarily to predict and to change the world. I now write to help a few people, those who […]

Good Morning.

Congratulations to Kyrsten Sinema and Haley Rouda who declared victory yesterday. Keep the blue wave rolling in. In between fighting wildfires, California is still counting votes for several house districts.


Overnight Oats. Best thing to happen to breakfast, amirite? If you haven’t tried them, here’s what I whipped up last night and ate voraciously this morning. (Probably are too much, tbh.)

Overnight Oats

1/3 cup old fashioned rolled oats

1/3 cup milk

1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt

1 tbsp chia seeds

1 tsp honey

1 tsp shaved semi sweet chocolate

1/2 banana

1 tbsp slivered almonds


To a glass jar with lid, add oats, milk, yogurt, chia seeds. Stir until well mixed. Top with honey, banana, chocolate and almonds. Screw top on jar. Refrigerate for at least 5 hours or overnight.

Substitute any fruit or nut mixture you prefer. This recipe makes a thick oatmeal mixture. Increasing the amount of milk should make this less pasty. I like it this way but you may like something a little more liquidy. Many recipes use almond milk instead of dairy milk. Whatever floats your boat. I like almonds as much as the next person. But every almond tree in California is very thirsty. So, maybe we should ease up on the almond milk.

Busy day. Keep me in the loop.

Here’s some morning music with scenery. Enjoy.

  2. We generally eat overnight oats 3 times a week. Don’t really follow any recipe any more, but the major difference is that we always used steel cut oats… the quick variety gives a less chewy texture. 1/4 cup of steel cut oats per serving, usually add some fruit (dried asian pears, dried blueberries; raisins, apples, bananas, figs, dates are all great, carrots too), about 2 tablespoons of Torani sugar free syrup (Almond Roca, Hazelnut, Brown sugar cinnamon are our favorites), then enough milk to cover (add a little extra when using a dried fruit), into the fridge then topped with some chopped nuts (hazel nuts, almonds, pecans) just prior to serving. I have added Greek Yogurt, and Almond Butter at times also.

  3. I dislike yogurt, esp. Greek yogurt but lately I have been consuming this brand, Siggi’s which is vegetarian friendly and has similar protein content as the Greek yogurt but tasty.

    RD… saw that recipe on a cooking show recently. Chia seeds plump up.

  4. Haha, Ted Olson lost Republican wife in the Pentagon crash of 9/11. He later married a woman who was a Democrat and I read an article long ago, how he changed his views after that marriage. I think he argued for LGBTQ marriage in the SCOTUS case. Let us find all these mfers a Democrat spouse.

    • Oops, ‘haha’ in no way relates to the other thing I said that he lost his wife in 9/11 crash. Sorry. It was about his conversion. Love trumps hate.

  5. Your recipe reminds me of a recipe I used to use to make muesli recipe that I made. It was easy to make ahead, pack into a leak-proof container and eat on the train on the way to work.

    I used a Bircher muesli recipe from the Allrecipes website.

  6. interesting!

  7. Who voted for this lazy and incompetent motherfucker? Hillary would have enjoyed being president and working her fullest. This is so sad.

  8. I just saw Sherrod Brown interviewed by Chris Hayes. It’s early, but I would be inclined to support him over every other candidate, as it is very likely that Hillary will not run. Brown always evoked to me the image of an old-time labor leader in the 1930’s or so, which is not a bad thing. He’s not smooth and blow-dried like many, but he’s smart and authentic, and is well positioned geographically. It would be far better to have him be the leading candidate, than to watch the battle between Biden and Warren/Harris/Gillibrand/Sanders. Brown might bridge the otherwise large gulf between the pragmatic but dull moderates and the idealistic but unlikely to win liberals, which would rage throughout primary season. How about Brown/O’Rourke as a ticket, or Brown/Klobuchar, or Brown/Yates, or Brown/Bullock? Win the Rust Belt and we almost certainly win the presidency.
