Usually I post recipes or twists on recipes I've tried, but this article appeared in my local paper and I was impressed enough to want to share it with you. Pictures were found on the web. Credit to the writer included

Omusubi, or rice ball, a comfort food
By Audrey Wilson

The people of the Big Island are resilient. We survived tsunamis, our two largest, one in 1946 and the other in 1960. We get shaken by earthquakes occasionally, some damaging, some not.

We pick up the Hawaii Tribune-Herald these days, and on the front page of the paper are maps or descriptions of where the June 27th lava flow could be heading and the timeline. In the Sunday, Sept. 14, paper the headline asked whether Mauna Loa will erupt.

After all, we do live on an active volcano and in the middle of the Ring of Fire, so it should not be a huge surprise to anyone living here that we have these natural disasters to face. It just seems like a lot for the people of the Big...

Two Arabs boarded a flight out of New York. One sat in the window seat and the other sat in the middle. Just before take off, An American
got on and took the aisle seat.

After takeoff, The American kicked his shoes off, wiggled his toes and was settling in when the Arab in the window seat said, "I think I'll get up and get a beer."
"No problem," said the American, "I'll get it for you."

While he was gone, One of the Arabs picked up the American's shoe and spat in it. When he returned with the beer, the other Arab said,
"that looks good, I think I'll have one too."

Again, the American obligingly went to get it and, while he was gone, the other Arab picked up the other shoe and spat in it. When the
American returned to his seat, they all sat back and enjoyed the flight.

As the plane was landing, the American slipped his feet into his shoes and knew immediately what had happened.

He looked at the two Arabs and asked, "why does it have to be this way? How long must this go on, this...

Cowboy Boots

An elderly couple, Margaret and Bert, are in Wyoming. Bert always wanted a pair of authentic cowboy boots, so, seeing some on sale, he buys them and wears them home, walking proudly.

He walks into the house and says to his wife, "Notice anything different about me?"

Margaret looks him over, "Nope."

Frustrated, Bert storms off into the bathroom, undresses, and walks back into the room completely naked except for the boots. Again he asks, a little louder this time, "Notice anything different NOW?"

Margaret looks up and says, "Bert, what's different? It's hanging down today, it was hanging down yesterday, it'll be hanging down again tomorrow."


"Nope," she replies.


Margaret replies,

"Shoulda bought a hat, Bert. Shoulda bought a hat."

Frozen Crabs

A man boarded an airplane in New Orleans with a box of frozen crabs and asked a blonde stewardess to take care of them for him. She took the box and promised to put it in the crew s refrigerator.

He advised her that he was holding her personally responsible for them staying frozen, mentioned in a very haughty manner that he was a lawyer, and proceeded to rant at her about what would happen if she let them thaw out. Needless to say, she was annoyed by his behavior.

Shortly before landing in New York, she used the intercom to announce to the entire cabin, "Would the gentleman who gave me the crabs in New Orleans, please raise your hand?"

Not one hand went up... so she took them home and ate them.

Two lessons here:

1. Lawyers aren't as smart as they think they are.

2. Blondes aren't as dumb as most folks think.

In Love With A Proctologist

A gay guy falls in love with a proctologist. He goes to the proctologist's office and says that he has an obstruction.

So the proctologist sticks his hand up the guy's ass but can't find anything. However, he notices that the man has an erection, so the proctologist cuts short the examination and orders the gay guy out of his office.

The next day, the gay guy calls the proctologist and claims he has another obstruction. The proctologist doesn't believe him but the guy claims he is in great pain, so the doctor relents. When the guy arrives, the doctor sticks his hand up the guy's ass again but this time he finds something.

"Good God!" the doctor exclaims, "No wonder you're in pain. There are two dozen roses shoved up your ass."

The gay guy turns around excitedly and says,

"Read the card! Read the Card!"

"For the first time, Pennsylvania has made public 243 cases of contamination of private drinking wells from oil and gas drilling operations.

As the AP reports, Pennsylvania’s Department of Environmental Protection posted details about the contamination cases online on Thursday. The cases occurred in 22 counties, with Susquehanna, Tioga, Lycoming, and Bradford counties having the most incidences of contamination.

In some cases, one drilling operation contaminated the water of multiple wells, with water issues resulting from methane gas contamination, wastewater spills, and wells that simply went dry or undrinkable. The move to release the contamination information comes after years of the AP and other news outlets filing lawsuits and Freedom of Information Act requests from the DEP on water issues related to oil and gas drilling and fracking.
