The Two Wolves
One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, "My son, the battle is between two "wolves" inside us all..
One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.
The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence,empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith."
The grand son thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: "Which wolf wins?"
The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."

I know its been a while since I posted, all's been quiet in the drama department till this weekend. Whats the latest drama report your wondering. Well it goes like this......(this is the translated version)
I want the christmas presents I gave you back because I bought them with company money and the only reason I gave you them was so you could use them to make "ME" money, since you don't work for me I want them. (9" Band saw)
I want all the money I reimbursed you from when you bought material for product and because I am out of this product I also want you to send me more of that product, because you still owe me for bringing you into this world. ($60 + 40 bowsocks)
I want you to pay me and additional $238.00 on Furs (this ones a long story, but Basically, I bought furs from the bowyer and S.D. wants me to pay him(the same amount) for them as well because he introduced me to him.
Or He's going to file criminal charges on me for theft, decitful business practices etc. (or that is the latest threat)
Am I the only one that see's something wrong with this picture?!? I mean what planet is he from?!?

09:57 am - Finaly..........
Well my oldest brother has finally done it. Instead of waiting to get disowned by our S.D. he has disowned or S.D. and this event occurred on Father's day!!!!
example he once sent My brother a bill for his birth and up bringing saying my brother owed him that and that is why he HAD to work for him and HAD to work for FREE!!! If that isn’t some fuc…….sorry, excuse the language.
He sent me one saying “a child should never treat their parents the way I was treating them and I OWED them for bringing me into this world”.
(translation, I should take the abuse and work for free for the old man) Also B.S.
As far as I’m concerned it was their choice to bring us into this world (making the cost of birthing and raising their duty)and they owed US every opportunity to succeed in life, and not hold us back because we might one day be smarter or happier or just better off than they are or any and all of the above. If I ever bring a child into this world I will owe that child the same thing my parents owed me.
I Just hope that my other siblings don’t treat him any different now either, half of the ones left (3-4) are considering the disowning, but are trying to see if they can hold out. As in maybe he’ll die first as the youngest said.
Anyways, enough from me today, laterz

06:30 pm - Experimenting in the Kitchen
Ok so there wasn't much in the fridge once I threw out the spoiled food......its lunch time, I'm hungry ....What I did have.......
-|- several thawed, boneless/skinless chicken breast
-|- fresh from the garden yellow squash and tomatoes
Ok fried chicken sounds appealing, I usually to a honey mustard fried chicken fingers. But I didn’t have all the ingredients for that. So I dig out the flour to do plain old fried chicken and remember No milk or eggs........hmm what then can I put in the flour.
I rummage thru the pantry and fridge. I come back with oil, Parmesan Cheese and Italian seasoning.
I peeled the 2 squash I had and sliced them thin, followed by the tomatoes also slices thin. Veggies on 1 board, Chicken on the other.
-Oil heating in 2 pans. I mix the flour and Parmesan in equal parts (approx. 1 cup ea.) then I added 2 tablespoons of seasoning and mix with a fork. I bread all the veggies; put the first round in the grease and the rest on a plate.
- Then I start with the chicken in to the flour mix and then in for its oil bath as well. The tomatoes cook fast so it wasn't long before I was taking them out and adding more. The squash took longer.
So everything’s cooking, I need something else to go with it. Hmmm....I Turn the chicken and head back to the pantry. What do I have....rice in about 4 flavors. I settle on wild rice and dig out another pan, add water, rice and seasoning. I take the first pieces of chicken out and reload the pan. Then on to the veggies again. Check the rice. Turn the chicken repeat till done.
So the chicken, wild rice and battered squash and tomatoes are done. I load up a plate and worry about whether this is going to end up a file 13 lunch. Adventures in the recipe department are not always good.
I sit down and start. Ok the tomatoes came out very sweet and with the cheese in the crust it tastes like spaghetti sauce, like fresh real took all day to make spaghetti sauce. Which then made me go …I could have made noodles instead of rice. Laid the chicken & tomatoes on top and smothered with spaghetti sauce….. ummmmm yummy
The squash was also sweet and tasted great. The chicken, delicious. It would have been great cut up on a salad too, or chicken eggplant parmesan …….yum…my mind became fascinated with the possibilities of what I could add the chicken or chicken & tomatoes to with this breading.
Enough about my adventures in the kitchen today. There is enough leftovers for dinner and lunch tomorrow. I’ll try something else with them then.
