Years ago, I grew stinging nettle and enjoyed eating it.  When I started it here, it didn't taste good like it used to, so I pulled it out.

When I get more land, I'll try it again.  I suspect the soil here is not to the liking of the nettle as well as several other things.

I've never heard of nettles, so I Googled and read the Wikipedia article.  What an interesting and multifunctional plant.  Food-wise, it sounds very nutritious.

There's line in an Irish song about a woman picking nettles, The Bold Fenian Men, about the revolutionaries in the 1868 uprising against England. And, here's an Irish recipe for nettle soup.

Just finished a book Longevity Now, which, among many other things, recommended eating stinging nettles. If you don't know, one needs welder's gloves to handle them! They are brutal. Anyway, I carefully grabbed a few, chopped them up and stuck them in a potato soup mix. While I couldn't actually taste them, they didn't seem to affect the soup's flavor. And, as promised in the book, the sting went out of them. I wonder how many years the nettles added to my life!

Pat: not ice cream on top, yogurt!  I'm still a good atheist!

Joan, what kind of spices does your recipe require?

And does it require baking or freezing?

Sadly, William Tapley's prophesy is coming true, but not because of the wrath of god, or the coming End Times, but because greed and hedonism have control of banking, producing, and political domains. 

The problem, as I see it, is people who have been trained to be dependent, passive, and subordinate do not think in terms of independence, dominance and action orientation. I hear "victim-talk" instead of "initiator-talk". 

Whining, crying, pleading, begging, complaining, blaming, yelling, imploring, finding fault, condemning, denouncing, bellyaching, rebuking, admonishing, are all victim language.

It is relatively easy to turn victim-talk into initiator-talk.

1. Name the problem.

2. Identify the goal. 

3. Explore the options. 

4. Develop action plans. Plan A, B, C. 

5. Evaluate outcome. 

If what you do solves the problem, then go on to the next thing that needs attending. If you do not solve the problem, try Plan B, and C, etc. 

Thinking in terms of action requires the use of action vocabulary. 

In the case of old Billie Tapley, 

1. Climate change is real, it is human caused, the Earth can not sustain the onslaught. 

2. Work toward climate stability. 

3. Explore ways to make the climate more stable. 

4. Plan A, B. C, D. etc. (this isn't either/or, it is both/and) 

5. Are our plans and action working?

If yes, keep on doing it. 

If no, do more of the same, less of the same, try something else. 

Oh! I know! some will say the problem is too big, or I am too small, or we've tried that, or it can't be done, or any of the other Killer phrases that we discussed months ago.

I think Randall is definitely a good atheist. Not only did he commit Pride, but if he overindulged (especially with a scoop of ice cream), he hit two in one fell swoop. Gluttony.

Hey, Randall, if your rhubarb strawberry crisp was awesome, is what it is!  You wouldn't be good atheist if you weren't committing at least one of the "Seven Deadly Sins":  pride. 

Once when I was with my mother, she was discussing the cooking abilities of her four children to an acquaintance and said, "Yes, Carl is a very good cook.......and he'll tell you so."  

Enjoy the rest of your desert.

I hate to gloat, but my rhubarb strawberry crisp I made last night was outasight!  My homegrown fruit, of course. Used Stevia as a sugar substitute. Couldn't tell any difference in taste.
