Juneteenth - June 19

I am sorta ashamed to say that I am nearly 50 yrs old and didn’t know about Juneteenth.

Juneteenth, also known as Juneteenth Independence Day or Freedom Day, is an American holiday that commemorates the June 19, 1865, announcement of the abolition of slavery in the U.S. state of Texas, and more generally the emancipation of enslaved African Americans throughout the former Confederate States of America.

Wikipedia

Date: Wednesday, June 19
Significance: Emancipation of the last remaining enslaved people in the United States>>>>>

I plan to talk about it/bring it up with coworkers tomorrow at work. Maybe through me and others we can exponentially “spread the word” to help make others aware and to remember. We should not forget. Especially with a racist in the WH...

R.I.P Chewbacca!

Peter Mayhew. May the force be with you!


Dang. I has a sad. I grew up with Chewy.

Got a ticket for lovelytheband on 4/20

Was sold out. Got a resell ticket.
Woot!
Super excited. 420 day will be amazin!
The venue is great. Neptune Theater in the UDub district Seattle. My third concert there in 1.5 yrs. My friend won the job to “reproduce” the marquee. They did an awesome job and I will be seeing it in person - just recently installed.

Here’s lovelytheband’s two biggest tunes.





2 years on DU this month

Thanks to all you beautiful BLUE people.
Was just reminiscing with my intro post.

So many fun times here! Learned about the “no pants” lounge in that thread. Made the acquaintance of so many cool folks!
DU rocks!

I cannot for the life of me understand how the idiot is still residing...2 fucking long ass years later. 🙄😩. Ugh

Celebrating you - DU!
Cheers!

Talk me down,please!

I went to the salon tonight. Spent three + hrs getting my hair foil colored. I have a lot of hair.

My hair looks the same color as Trumps!!!! OmfuckingG!!!!!!

I am sitting hear realizing this at this moment. It is blond. It is yellow in places. It looks so fucking brassy and fake!
I am dying of embarrassment. Jeeeeez!

Macklemore. I can't change.

Even if I wanted to.

THIS!

Seattle snow day!

At least 12 inches where I live. Made it to work on time, walked in the back door and was told they were shutting down. I was one of 6 people. ...Spent half hr uncovering my vehicle this morning. Good times.

I am gonna have a “spa day” at home this morning then take a walk to the river to take some photographs. The trees look epic! Still snowing too.

Hot buttered rum(s) are next on the agenda. Cheers!

Egg baked in avocado

I tried it for the first time today. Avocados have been cheap lately at the groc so I have been buying more. Googled some other ways to use them and found this way to (basically) poach an egg.

I think it is more trouble than it is worth. Tho the flavors do go well together.

I used a slice of bacon under the avocado half, then precooked both to make sure the bacon was properly done and the egg was hitting hot avocado flesh. Scooped out a little flesh too. Cracked the egg right in the avocado. After about 15-20 min I had a mostly cooked egg. Served with toasted baguette to dip in the yolk.

I probably won’t go to the trouble again tho. I like other combinations better.

Hot Buttered Rum

Having one as a night cap tonight. Harvey’s Butter Rum Batter. Made in WA!
Do you have a favorite recipe?

I tried my very first one at Thanksgiving but it was a powdered mix at a bar so I had to look up how to make.

I used homemade vanilla ice cream with brown and powdered sugars and cinnamon.
Mixed these and some butter in a mug and filled with hot water - leave room for the rum! This is my favorite as it is very creamy from the ice cream. Keep a stir stick or spoon nearby as it seperates easy.

MAGA wall toy. Ages 5 and up.

Yes, it appears to be real.
At first I thought it was a Legos toy but thankfully not!
