Home Cooking

I have decided to share my favorite recipes with everyone. To start off I will share Jim's special secret barbecue sauce recipe. Just look to the sidebar and you will find it. This is good with both pork and beef ribs. It is also great with chicken.

This week I am grateful for computers! Yes, they are both my curse and my blessing. I have 2 computers, one my desktop that I use for almost everything. It has a huge monitor so it is easy for me to see. My eyes are going, so sad, but it doesn't mean I am getting old; just need new glasses. Well, it was running slowly so I let Cowboy Dan (the computer guy), put in a new hard drive. All of a sudden it froze up and come to find out, he had to put the old hard drive back in and since I was using the new one for 6 weeks that meant I lost most of my data for those 6 weeks. Including my emails that I was saving and some other stuff I cant remember but know I will need in the very near future. Very irritating.

Then my other computer is a notebook, I use it for business and can't live without it. I discovered I couldn't use the notebook with Mircosoft Word, a big problem. I called Gateway, was put on hold a half hour, finally got someone, talked for a few minutes and was disconnected. I did this routine for several days, totaling up about 8 hours of being on hold with very bad music playing.

Well today I spent 2 hours on the phone with Mel, who has a very stong accent (Raheem is probably is real name). Hmmm.... could I be talking to India? But miracle of all miracles Mel was able to fix the problem. I take back all my bad thoughts of him. I am now up and running again and wondering how did I live without these machines? So if you are keeping score it is:

Relief Society

We had a great lesson on Sunday. It was about our divine nature as daughters of God. It emphasized how easy it is to not realize all of our individual potential. I especially loved this quote from the lesson. It is by Marianne Williamson.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
