Mr. P’s Delight

I just copied this recipe from my mother-in-law the other day, and it looks like a recipe I definitely want to make. It sounds delicious. I hope to try this soon and will post a picture when I do.

I switched the green pepper that her recipe called for, with red pepper. Only because red pepper is my favourite and I am not that keen on green pepper.



16 pork sausage

2 apples, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
2 green onions, chopped

Sauce – combine the following ingredients and put aside

3 Tbsp brown sugar
2 Tbsp cornstarch
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup apple juice
2 Tbsp soya sauce
1 Tbsp vinegar

1 1/2 cups rice


Cook sausage and cut into bite size pieces.
Add chopped veggies and apple, and cook 1 minute.
Add sauce, bring to boil and boil 1 minute.

Stir in rice, remove from heat, cover and let stand 5 minutes.

Who is Mr. P? He is my MIL’s nephew and this was his favourite meal.

Shame on Philadelphia – City of Brotherly Love?

The video above was published by CBC The National on June 28, 2014 ….. listen to what David Harris Smith says at the 4:22 mark.

Created by David Harris Smith of McMaster University and Frauke Zeller of Ryerson University, hitchBOT was a Canadian “hitchhiking robot”. HitchBOT was designed as a social experiment to explore the relationship between humans and technology.

He was well travelled and gained international attention for successfully hitchhiking across Canada and in Europe. However, a recent attempt by hitchBOT to hitchhike across the United States ended in tragedy.

In mid July 2015, hitchBOT started his U.S. adventure to cross the United States from Boston to San Francisco. His trip ended abruptly and violently on August 1, 2015 by vandals in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

CBC News reported that fans outraged worldwide and CTV News reported hitchBOT has been damaged beyond repair during US tour.

How could anyone destroy something so innocent and adorable. And what does this say about human nature?

Who doesn’t love Minions!

I admit it! I’m older, not quite a senior, who just can’t get enough of these guys. I even have a few adorable plush Minions!  I wish I could say I bought them for the grandkids, but don’t have any LOL.

I have watched both previous movies, each time they are on, so yes, more than once! Definitely looking forward to their new movie!

Definition: Evolving from single-celled yellow organisms at the dawn of time, Minions live to serve, but find themselves working for a continual series of unsuccessful masters.

2015 Groundhog Day Prediction by Spanish Joe

Spanish Joe Time.jpg

Everyone once in a while, Spanish Joe likes to show off. Face it, he is one special hog!

Being that he is psychic, he wanted to leave his predictions early (beat that Punxsutawney Phil), so he could get back to his road trip. He is on his way down to Phoenix, his presence has been requested at Super Bowl 49. Apparently only Spanish Joe knows who the winner will be, and he’s not talking! Although rumour has it that he is stopping over in Vegas.

Back to the story……

…… it’s six more weeks of winter!

Make a fish finder into a portable fish finder

It’s ice fishing time and hubby is going to do some crappie fishing. It is much easier to have a portable fish finder to move from hole to hole. Problem is, he only has regular fish finders in his boat and doesn’t want to buy another one. Solution? Make on yourself.
