Out of the Blue

Merry Christmas! We're having one of those white Christmases that Der Bingle used to croon about, as a tasteful blanket of snow fell on the area overnight, which is cool (if not downright frosty). Here's hoping it's equally scenic, if not seasonal, where you are. I followed though on my plan to make chili yesterday with a different recipe to celebrate, and I am pleased with the turnout. In spite of the recipe's notation that this is Texas-style, it calls for tomatoes, which are often considered not authentically Texas, and are not usually part of my chili. On the other hand, I was born and raised in Brooklyn, so in spite of my incredible taste in cowboy boots, I'm probably not one to judge such matters. Anyway, my normal recipe results in meat that's falling apart, and I wanted an outcome that was more like solid meat in a broth (like a competition chili), and this one delivered. I followed it to the letter as a first time, but in the future I will probably add more cumin and tweak a couple of other things.

I support blue removing it.

But man, that guy must be a troll, no? Like so many Republicans, he says something ridiculous then claims it's fake news and he never said it. Cutteresque, even.

Is it trolling if you truly believe it?

I wonder what he'd think about this story.

A family of refugees show up, without the resources to house themselves, and are helped out by ordinary local people. Then, when the authorities threaten to (shall we say) break up the family with extreme prejudice, three wealthy foreign elitists not only give them advance warning to flee, but provide them the means to do so successfully.

That's the story of Jesus' birth.
