Border Song

I really like this song.

This clip from Elvis Costello's talk show on Sundance Channel. He is remarkably good at it, and as his guest Elton John surprised me with his musical knowledge.

Legendary guitarist James Burton (Elvis, Rick Nelson) plays Electric.

Shut Up and Eat

"White Trash Beans and Rice"

1 12-16oz pkg breafast sausage (hot)
2 cans "Trappey's Ranch Style Beans" or other seasoned chili beans
1 sm-med onion, chopped

Saute' onion
add sausage, brown, crumble and drain
add beans and 1/2 can water
simmer uncovered 20 mins

Serve over rice
Serves 4-6

I like this recipe, because it's easy to keep the ingredients on hand and it's fast and easy.

It's really more tasty than you'd expect, and makes a meal for 5-6 bucks.

Thoughts. I've got 'em.

The random musings of a cluttered mind will be posted here.

While you wait, here is a favorite I discovered several years ago when I went through my obsession with quotations:

"I have a most peaceable disposition. My desires are for a modest hut, a thatched roof, but a good bed, good food, very fresh milk and butter, flowers in front of my window and a few pretty trees by my door. And should the good Lord wish to make me really happy, he will allow me the pleasure of seeing about six or seven of my enemies hanged upon those trees." HEINRICH HEINE

If you like that one, there are hundreds on this site:
