What do you cook them with any particular spices/herbs? One of my go to things to cook with beans is a couple of dried chipotles.

Yeah! Baron made a black eye pea curry - lots of chilies, coriander, onions. It was fabulous.

Just went out to get something from the shed. Didn't notice the icy step. Arse over elbow and a lovely red scrape on my arm. Be careful out there kids.

Dear Adam.

I work with the elderly suffering from Dementia, Alzheimer's, Parkinson and general ill health that hits the elderly in the community. I visit them at home and help to keep them out of Care homes and in their own environment for as long as possible.

This is the reason that I qualify for the vaccine. I'm no longer a Foster Carer which i stopped doing nearly two years ago. I've been a Support Carer for over a year now. I haven't previously worked in this area to have any contacts.

I would think that I'm also a bit older than you. My Mum would've been 95 this year.

I hope that your Mum gets the jab as soon as possible and keeps healthy.

Your Loving Pal

i know there are teachers/former teachers around here.

it is generally a thankless job, which pays, at least in my case as full faculty, minimum wage.

but i wanna share this, becuz the rewards in teaching are never what the outside world may think they are.

i had a student in the late 80s who was sharp as shit, witty, funny, was workin two jobs to go to school. she was pretty brilliant, but she kept failing the freshman proficiency exam for stupid-ass reasons. (ya know, like 3 comma splices and 2 spelling errors in a ten page paper written "live"). i appealed her failing grade on the exam and i won. anyway, it meant she became what i called privately one of my 'lifers'... folk who took every class i taught, all the soph surveys of fiction, poetry and drama, american lit, brit lit I and II (oooof), and a few specialized courses i got permission to teach, even tho i hadn't finished my phd, like shakespeare and sci-fi.

anyway, she lovvved the brit lit class so much, she decided to name her first-born son after it somehow. i told her she was crazy. we all know she was crazy. she did it, anyway. (cuz she's crazy.) she named him saxon. she even met reap. um, that's a long story. never mind.

and now, yer lil zen moment.

saxon just got accepted to harvard law school on a full scholarship.

and i had absolutely ZERO to do with anything involved in raising him, educating him, etc.

BUT HIS NAME IS SAXON. EAT ME BITCHES.

(thanks for indulging this ex-teacher. might be time for brownies.)
