John Anderson Lyrics

“Seminole Wind”

Ever since the days of old,
Men would search for wealth untold.
They’d dig for silver and for gold,
And leave the empty holes.
And way down south in the Everglades,
Where the black water rolls and the saw grass sways.
The eagles fly and the otters play,
In the land of the Seminole.

So blow, blow Seminole wind,
Blow like you’re never gonna blow again.
I’m calling to you like a long lost friend
But I know who you are.
And blow, blow from the Okeechobee,
All the way up to Micanopy.
Blow across the home of the Seminole,
The alligators and the gar.

Progress came and took its toll,
And in the name of flood control,
They made their plans and they drained the land,
Now the glades are going dry.
And the last time I walked in the swamp,
I sat upon a Cypress stump,
I listened close and I heard the ghost,
Of Osceola cry.

So blow, blow Seminole wind,
Blow like you’re never gonna blow again.
I’m calling to you like a long lost friend
But I know who you are.
And blow, blow from the Okeechobee,
All the way up to Micanopy.
Blow across the home of the Seminole,
The alligators and the gar.

The cowboy’s hat

Filed under: Love, Magic, My Life and Rants, Song — Scottie @ 14:43

I have had times in my life like this.  Songs like these resonate with me.  I have been the one wearing the hat, and I have been one with my back to the wall.   This song takes me back to a different time in my life when I was a slightly different person.    Yes when it came to it I fought with my back  to the wall, not for a hat, but for people I loved and cared for.     I hope you get as much out of this song as I do.  Loves and hugs.

Ron’s Christmas Tree, try 2

On Wednesday Ron took a break from building the front room ( my future office ) and after moving things around ( which looks much better )  and began setting up his Christmas Tree.   I looks grand.  He loves doing it.   He loves odd unusual ornaments.   That night he took a bunch of pictures and asked me to post them.   So here is Ron’s 2018 Christmas Tree.   Hugs

A meatless thanksgiving dinner.

Filed under: Food, Love, Magic, My Life and Rants, Things I like — Scottie @ 11:43

Trying something new this Thanksgiving.   Ron was to work last night but got called off.  So we had not prepared anything for a meal today as I would be up alone while he slept.  Now we had to figure out what to do.  On years where he did not work we would make a reservation at a local restaurant we preferred.  

This thanksgiving we are doing something we have not done before.  Ron and I are trying to cut down on the amount of meat we eat.   So I am making a tomato sauce with out hamburger or sausage.   Instead I used beef bouillon to give a deeper taste.  I like my sauce to be really tomato tasting.   Here is what I did.

I took three cans of Dei Fratelli which I think is the most tomato tasting sauce I have tasted and put them in a large pot.   Then I took a container of mixed peppers and added them.  I also added a whole container of diced celery.    I added a quarter container of yellow onion.  ( I do not like onion really so I only add enough to give a flavor with out being overwhelming which I think onion can be.  All measurements are subjective to your taste.)  To this I added the two beef Bouillon, and two regular small spoonful of minced garlic.  Then the following spices measured roughly by pouring then into my hand.  Oregano but not a heaping palm full as it can turn biter if not balanced.  Sweet Basil a full palm full.  You don’t need to worry about sweet Basil because if you add a bit too much it will only make it a sweeter greener sauce.  I add rubbed sage for taste and also Thyme.  Most people never think to add that but it really does make a difference.   Then I heat the sauce and when simmering I add two different types of mushrooms.  I use a basic white mushroom sliced as they take the flavor well, and a small whole mushroom as it gives a texture.  Then add a bit of salt, simmer and then just before you start the water for pasta taste the sauce.   This time I added a touch more minced garlic and a half palm full of sweet basil.   

Ron put garlic toast in the oven and I am heating the water for the pasta.  Use what ever pasta you prefer.   Today we are going with Angle hair as I forgot to get regular spaghetti pasta.  I hope you enjoy your meal as much as we are going to ours.

Best wishes and loves to all.  Hugs
