The declaration of love: sign now!

Love is of all times. How we handle it is changeable. Today’s achievements, which make people more and more free to experience love in their own way, are under constant pressure. A longing for the past or fixed truths causes people to be squeezed into squatting boxes.

It is important to defend the freedom to love according to your own wishes. That is why this statement. A declaration of love to people and a declaration of love to freedom.

1. We confirm that men and women are equal.

2. We affirm that people love each other in different ways and can be attracted to each other physically. All people must be free to be who they want to be.

3. We affirm that sexuality must always be a mutually free choice.

4. We affirm that sexuality contributes to a meaningful, joyful and beautiful life.

5. We affirm that there are people who want to change sex, and confirm their right to do so.

6. We deny that people should hide or renounce their disposition.

7. We affirm that marriage is a choice between free people – straight, gay or bisexual – who want to enter into a loving and responsible relationship with each other.

8. We affirm that there are other forms in which people live together and care for each other. 

9. We affirm that love is the most important basis for raising children. Women and men – regardless of the form of their mutual relationship – are capable of doing so.

10. We affirm that everyone is free to shape their own lives, and that there is no direct or indirect coercion or exclusion in legislation or in social communication. The declaration of love can be signed by everyone who cares about freedom and love. Sign the declaration too, along with all other signatories. That is already more than 20,000! NB: this list is regularly updated. But due to the large number of applications, it may take a little longer before you see your name. At the bottom you will find the registration form.

Dennis sent us some pictures of his special friend.

The first one is about a week after she showed up in my backyard. Yes, SHE chose me to be her obedient servant, and care for her royal needs accordingly. In the second, she’s a couple months older. And see her sticking her tongue out, in the third? She’s quite the character.

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

and the reforestation project

I know some of my viewers do not like videos and some struggle with English.  However this is an important video.  This video explains how one group were able to help a group of people and stop deforestation.  This is important.   Plus it shows you what I watch while I am reading your blogs.   I an not simply anti trump, I am pro helping making a better world for all of us.   Hugs

meatless sausage ??? Help

Yesterday Ron and I went to the grocery store that is about a mile or two down the road, it is our favorite.  However it has a crappy small vegetarian section.  We picked up a few things to try.

Well this morning we tried the veggie breakfast sausages.   Taste wise they were OK, smelt good, but the texture was awful.   Maybe I  did not cook them enough but I followed the instructions.  I baked them for 14 minutes.  Next time I will fry the crap out of them.  They were soft and sort of mushy.  I threw most of mine in the trash.  Ron agreed with me they tasted OK but had to fix the soft mushiness of them.  

Ron used some of the beefless ground in the spanish rice he made last night.  We are adding rice to our diet several times a week.  It was OK, I am not a fan of spanish rice but I did not find anything awful about it.  I did not even know he had put some in there until he told me. 

Ron tried the chicken patties the other day.  He said they were OK.  They did smell good.  Ron wants to make taco mix out of tofu and the meatless ground burger stuff.   I am hoping the seasoning mix will  make it OK, I hate to buy stuff to eat and then have to throw it out.  

I admit it is hard to walk past the long meat counter and displays full of easy to find and get products that I know taste good to me.  But Ron And I talked about it.   We both feel meat is not the same as it was when we were growing up.   We don’t feel it is a safe nor as good for us as it use to be.   We feel that in fact it may be bad for us to continue to eat such amounts of meat.   That said we did buy a large ham that was on sale, as ham is one of my favorites.  

So if anyone has some ideas, let me know.  Brands or items to try.  I am going to make a chili tomorrow for the first time without meat.  Should be OK, I will use beans to give it texture and substance.   Hugs
