Some 10, 11 or maybe even 12 years ago I started reading Spo Reflections. Little did I know that a friendship was in the making.
UrSpo & Fearsome
I read, he blogged. I read, he blogged. I added a comment, he responded. I read and commented, he blogged and responded. So it went.
Thursday of this week I went out to visit him and a few others in Palm Springs. A jolly good time was had by all. Ron was among them as well as Someone, Doug, Leon & Pat. Food, conversation, laughter and fun shared by all.
This here internet thingy doesn’t have to be isolating. All we have to do is get out and meet up.
Cheers to those I’ve met in person and those I’ve yet to meet.
Will you be Fearsome’s Valentine?
Fearsome sends you a Valentine Beard card full of love!
Ok this is easy peasy.
Simply start with a box of Betty Crocker super moist French Vanilla cake mix.
Mix as directed on box EXCEPT replace the oil with 1 stick of melted butter and substitute 1 cup of fresh squeezed orange juice instead of water. Then bake as directed on the box.
Dreamsicle Cake baking in my 1940s Gaffers & Sattler range.
Cool the layers thouroughly after baking. I cool in the pans for 10-20 minutes, no more than 20 or they will stick, and then cool out on a towel or cooling rack out of the pan for at least another 30 minutes, preferably 1 hour.
Then make this simple orange butter creme icing:
1 box of powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1/8 teaspoon salt, 1 stick of room temperature salted butter and 1/3 cup fresh squeezed orange juice. Place it all in a bowl and mix on low until mixed then mix on high until smooth and creamy (about 3 minutes). Once smooth & creamy, simply frost the cake!
Simple, easy and delicious …Way!
Do you know why we like the Super Bowl?
We like the Super Bowl because it marks the start of Baseball Season!
Catchers and Pitchers start reporting 2/14!
A real sport, WooHoo!
The weekend is upon us and we are already more than a month into the year.
We need some silliness. Justin Timberlake’s new “Man of the Woods” video is silliness. Light, easy and fun, this tune got us up and going this morning.
Man of the Woods, it’s my pride!
One knows a friend when the two of you can meet up and the conversation flows. The words are interesting, come easily and are comfortable. You make each other laugh, understand each other and both listen. It doesn’t matter if you saw each other yesterday or last year, the company is just plain comfortable. Time flies when the two of you are together.
Yesterday I had coffee with such a friend. We hadn’t seen each other in a year. In fact we first met at that meeting last year. We are both bloggers. Last year we had a meet up and a friendship was born. Yesterday we met, had coffee, enjoyed the company and deepened the friendship. That Blogger is this Blogger.
Yup. R.J. from Meanwhile Over in Cali.
You will find a post about our encounter over on R.J.’s Blog as well. Hopefully this year will allow the two of us to meet up again soon, sooner than another year. For R.J. Is delightful and friendships are to be treasured.
…or is that kiltless morning distraction?
The Kilted Coaches are at it again. Crack on Brothers!
Yet another Fearsome tradition…
…and the traditions continue here at Fearsome’s place…
Today marks the shortest day of the year in this here northern hemisphere.
Let us celebrate the return of the sun.
Tradition is something we here at Fearsome Beard attempt to maintain for our holiday celebrations. Yesterday we brought you Babs lip syncing Babs. Today we are Wishing You a Drag Queen Christmas!
Something really over the top…
With appropriate timing we kick off the Christmas week on the last evening of Hanukkah with Babs Levine lip syncing one of Fearsome’s favorite Barbra Streisand Christmas tunes.
Happy Hanukkah and Merry Christmas!
