Today Is Orthodox Easter (Pascha)

I think that this is one of the best pieces of music ever.   At least in my point of view, which is kind of biased! It is my absolute favorite piece of church music.  Even if you are not Eastern Orthodox or religious, it is worth a listen. 

It is an amateur church choir but they are very good.

Prize Winning Recipe! So Simple That Even A Time Lord Can Make Them!

Basket Biscuits!

We made these in cooking class way back in September.  The ingredient list sounds kind of odd and I didn't think they sounded like anything good to eat but I was wrong.  It is now our favorite meal on nights when there is little time to cook.  

1 can of plain, refrigerated biscuits (10-12 count, like Pillsbury or Hungry Jack
1 can 15oz. can of chili (any kind, hot, with or without beans, vegetarian...etc.)
Shredded cheddar cheese or you can try whatever kind you like

muffin pan
cupcake/muffin cups

1. Preheat oven to 350F.

2. Flatten biscuits and put inside muffin pan.

3. Put  spoonful of chilli on each biscuit.

4. Sprinkle cheese on top.

The acutal recipe is a picture recipe.  I wish I could find the link to it.

5. Bake for 10 - 12 mins. 

6.  Take out of muffin pan and let cool before eating. 

I use paper or aluminum cupcake/muffin cups because it makes them easier to clean up.

Time Lord Meme

Heisted from kilodalton

Your job is now your Time Lord name. The last digit of your phone number is the current regeneration you are in. The nearest clothing item to your right is now the most notable item in your current wardrobe. The last person you texted is your current companion. Your favorite word is now your catchphrase.

My Time Lord name is the Teacher and I am on my second regeneration. The most notable item in my current wardrobe is a pair of thick, woolly black socks. Since I don't text I'll have to pick my companion from the last person I talked with on the phone and that person is my daughter.   My favorite word/catchphrase since moving to the Galaxy of Baltimore is "FRICKING IDIOTS AROUND HERE DON'T KNOW HOW TO DRIVE!!!!"

Rumor Or Truth?!?!?!?

My daughter just IM'd me all excited because she was told that Ten and Rose were going to appear in tomorrown night's Doctor Who.  I told her she must be smokin' somthin'!   "No!" she told me. "It's true!  Half my school knows about it!  They're signed on to do two episodes this year!" (My daughter goes to a very geeky college!)  Show it to me in print from a reliable source and I'l believe it I told her.  Of course she can't!  But now my curiosity is going....Has any one heard of anything like this?   I sincerely doubt it but......

Something Funny To Cheer Me Up

One of the most frequent responses I get when I tell people that I teach the blind and visually impaired is:  "Oh!  So you know that sign language stuff!"

Suposedly, this is what he is really siging:

"For those who don't know ASL, the teacher signs

"I Love myself! Wow. Missiles launching. Lifting boxes my left arm went limp, but I still lifted the box."

Then when he says that will be distracting, he signs "lesbian."
