Sunday, September 4

Yesterday... eleven kinds of wonderful. :)

Time with the boys, time out on errands, time with my brother and time with my fav pass time... cooking.
I made ribs last night... :D (I make really good ribs... of this there can be no question)
We had my MIL over for dinner and whiled away the evening. It was nice.
She is just back from a trip to Paris and a Agay in France and ... sigh... nice pictures. :)

We watched the rest of the Prison Break opener... I like. We'll see if we can track with it.
There are only so many hours of tv we can sort out per week before it all falls apart... (the "trying to keep up" thing)

We bought a new dishwasher... I signed the deal yesterday. The leak came back and ... I'm sick of the crap from that very old, very noise, rusting piece oh'crap. New DW gets installed on Wednesday night.

~ dk blue ftls
~ dk blue swish swish pant zip off shorts...
~ gray b.u.m. t shirt
~ to take a bunch of pictures and then move Edwards bedroom. (A big day for all of us... the boys have always shared a room).
~ finish writing up something about BB from last night...
~ watch another old pvr'd episode of Charlie Rose... and wish I was watching Battlestar Galactica DOES anyone know when this starts in Canada (Space Chanel)
~ it's a toss up... between wishing for the health and safety of the displaced people from New Orleans and wishing that this even serves well to point out the truth of the class system obviously in place in the United States. You cannot fix something... until you admit it's a problem!

d'ya ever look at a situation between two people... (relationship) and get overwhelmed with a moment of "oh... that's going to end painfully" and ... know deep in your heart that you're right... because that little feeling is always right... (sad but true) and that you're not going to say anything... because that's a lot like theft...

Edward, en route to bed last night... is running away from me and the pj's I'm holding for him... because he's having too much fun doing naked Elvis impersonations, hollering about how it waggles and then dissolving into laughter.
Just say'en... the fun never stops. :)

~ pork back ribs. Make for nicer "rib sections" than side ribs
~ Cut them into three or four rib sections...
~ boil them for an hour.
~ remove from water... place them in a flat baking dish... I use a corning cake pan...
~ pour sauce over them... cover with tin foil
~ bake at 350 for at least a half hour...
~ remove from tray, pour sauce into bowl
~ now bb-q the ribs... dunking them often in the bowl of sauce
~ they're already cooked, so the bb-q is all about making 'em sticky and yummi.

~ 1/4 cup of honey
~ 1/3 cup of ketchup
~ 1/4 cup of light soya
~ three fresh cloves of garlic *(smashed)
~ 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder
~ and then I add hot sauces bought a county fairs... hot hot hot... but not necessary
~ 2/3 cup of Orange Juice...
~ 1/2 cup of water.
~ stir stir stir...

Big Brother 6 Update!!

Big Brother 6 Update!!

Return of the Jedi

Where in... the leaky Cuban leaks, the Jedi get the lights out, the most annoying voice in the history of Big Brother comes to slut things up a bit and the incredible exploding face of the GMG convinces Maggie to do yet another stupid thing. Oh, and the jury house gets to come out of the closet.

Screen resolution question:

I'm using a recent download of Vector Linux.

It's quite slick.

I'm using it on an older Toshiba laptop and I selected 800x600 at 24 bit depth for the screen questions.
However, the resulting screen is a small interface in the middle of the lap top monitor.

How can I reconfigure the screen options?

I keep looking for an X11 config program but I'm not finding it.
