Dinner, almost the same

The peppers have the same filling as cabbage rolls.

Two tbs margarine, chop an onion, add ground beef, add a chopped tomato, salt, pepper, tomato sauce, rice; set aside. Boil a head of cabbage, separate individual leaves, remove stems, add a dollop of filling and roll:


Cover the rolls over tomato sauce, pop into the oven for a half hour or so, eat.

*NOT* Ma Bell

You would think that you are looking at a vehicle, parked at the curb. You would be wrong. This is a work site. When we place the cones they mark my work area, transforming the van into "not a vehicle." The rules against parking do not apply. MY cones were always placed a foot or more away from my van, to keep vehicles away from my work area. It is to give me a safe place. This guy has the cones as close to the van as he could, and even left one laying it's side. It has no safety function, it is just something he has to have. He could not even park near the curb, leaving the van into the traffic lane.

It is just more proof that Ma Bell is dead. Safety and Quality is gone.

Remove tops of green peppers, clean, boil to soften. Make some rice. Chop an onion, the chopped pepper top pieces, saute. Add ground beef, brown for a while. Salt, pepper, etc.. Add a can Ralph's of diced tomatos -- no salt added. Add the rice. Drain the peppers, stuff, put into the oven for a while. Shred cheddar cheese, open the oven, top the peppers, let it melt on the peppers. Serve:

Stuffed Peppers

Say What?

Along with the aphasia, I have a hearing problem. Telephone Voice Band, what frequencies are needed for hearing, is roughly 300 Hz to 4,000 Hz. This is what my ear right does, not as good as we had requirement for our telephone circuits, but -25db at 250Hz to -10db at 2KHz to -25db at 4KHz. Left ear not too good, -30db at 250Hz, rolling off to -65db at 2KHz, even down more a -95db at 4KHz. If I was pulling a three-tone test my circuits would have to be taken down for repair or replace.
