I finally got glasses yesterday! I have never needed them before but it's gotten to point where I really shouldn't have been driving. I don't need them for the computer or reading books, newspapers, etc. Anyway I can read Faith's texts now. Just in time for her to get screwed over again.

As promised.....

This is boychild's favorite cake hands-down.  Just plain , no icing.

Ultimate Pound Cake

1 c butter (at room temp)

3 c sugar

3 c all-purpose flour

6 eggs

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1 c sour cream

2 tsp vanilla

Get out your mixer, you're gonna need it!  Cream butter and sugar till fluffy.  Add eggs one at a time, mixing well between each.

In another bowl mix flour, salt and soda.  Add alternately with sour cream (some flour, some s cream, more flour...you get the gist) mixing well between each.  Mix well and add vanilla.  Bake in a bundt pan at 325 for 1 hr 15-20 min.  Check with long skewer.  Butter the pan and use sugar to coat....this works well on any cake.  No ugly flour residue and it makes a wonderful crust.

Got this recipe from the food editor at the local newspaper years ago.  It's great on its own but it's a perfect starter for strawberry shortcake, a trifle, sundaes, with fruit.

Just damn fine cake.

Enjoy!

Immediately in my recipe folder. Fat is key to the perfect pound cake.

What is this 'margarine' of which you speak?

Never heard of such a thing....

Perhaps you know if as the dreaded Oleo - which was also the chant used by the soldiers at the castle of the Wicked Witch of the West.

Coincidence?  I think....Not...

Well, I'm gluten intolerant, so no good food for me. And I have food allergies...sigh. So I made myself a strawberry cake. I use coconut flour so I always have to use fruit or vegetables for body. Usually I use grated zucchini. You don't taste it. And if you use enough vanilla anything will taste like birthday cake, haha. I also like to use canned crushed pineapple. So  I got fresh out of season strawbs and used the stick blender. My recipe only makes a single layer cake. I made a buttercream icing and iced half vanilla and then added cocoa powder and iced the other half chocolate. All in all it was kind of like neopolitan ice cream. It was good and I enjoyed it.

Oh my gods...I just saw that Jeopardy has replaced the late great Alex Trebek with that cheesy charlatan huckster Dr. Oz.  Let me phrase this as a question.  What is The Actual Fuck?  Is this just an interim thing, or is he the new host?

Not to worry Snap.  He's only one of the guest hosts.  His stint is up Fri.  They've had Ken Jennings, Katie Couric, and now Oz (I'm not a fan either).  Ken Jennings should get the gig IMHO.  Very respectful of the legacy of Jeopardy & Alex and he's funny.

Oh, good.  I don't watch regularly, and I hadn't heard anything about a replacement.  When I saw Dr. Oz, I was stunned, and not in a pleasant way.

I want to introduce you to the best radio station ever.

https://ckua.com/

They have been around forever and I just love everything about this station; the hosts are incredible and the playlists are always delightful. Check it out, I think you will find something you like.

Holger Petersen has hosted a blues show on this station for 50 years!

I personally love listening to Traffic Jams hosted by Lisa Wilton. I also love the Celtic Show hosted by Andy Donnelly.

This is a donor supported radio station.

I had the opportunity to interview Fleetwood Mac and the members individually, and must say as the years went by the personalities got larger as the rooms got smaller.

It's nothing that hasn't been heard before.

The Physicians' Desk Reference of pharmaceuticals, alcohol abuse, too much money, too many sycophants and former lovers/spouses, ever-inflating self-interest and sexual insecurity, musical talent at the top of its game, press releases, glowing - and not so glowing - music reviews, agents, lawyers, managers, producers, record company officiants ... It's a lot of ego to field for an interview.
