Pick One:

A) Cholula
B) Tapatio
C) Bonus Option… Valentina

side note: Louisiana Styles are saved for a future Pick One.

side, side note: my mouth is waterin’ just typing this….

Roz August 7, 2020 at 7:21 PM

I use to enjoy hot sauce,….my gut doesn’t anymore,… 🙁

Ancient Mariner August 7, 2020 at 8:40 PM

Cholula, without a doubt!

Cowellian August 7, 2020 at 8:46 PM

I keep Cholula and Louisiana hot sauce on my table.

Antler, wish granted, now you can play this weeks Pick One: …

Silva August 8, 2020 at 12:48 PM

I suppose I should say we always having one or the other in the fridge for the kids tacos. My boy had a preference for Cholula as a youngster, but since we put it on before serving their tacos, they’ve never mentioned any difference.

S August 9, 2020 at 9:12 AM

“C”…

I like them all and had favored Tapitio for a long time. Then one day… I couldn’t find it on sale, so Valentina always being cheaper; I tried it; excellent.

Is now my fav…

Mary Fouts August 9, 2020 at 3:35 PM

None. The only hot type sauce seasoning I purchase now is Tobasco. After I started canning my own hot sauce (habanero) and salsas, nothing store purchased could compare. It’s work and your kitchen area will smell like a garlic factory, but the results are oh so worth it. Nothing like hearing the sealed canned jar go “ping!” to give you a huge smile of simple satisfaction. Mary Fouts

The Masked (and gloved) Poster August 9, 2020 at 5:34 PM

Cholula chipotle. You get the heat of Cholula with the added smoky flavor of the chipotle. Good stuff.

Silva August 9, 2020 at 6:05 PM

Hey, thanks for the tip about Valentina, S! Much like Mary Fouts we have to have and need to grow chilies with massive flavor and heat. Habaneros, scorpions, ghost peppers, whatever new kid on the block with more SHU (Scoville Heat Units) than any other chili in human history, and then some more typical backyard hot peppers like serranos, Thai chilies, jalapeños and whatever else was available and interesting. And then we still have to buy a lot of chilies, some pickled peppers and sauces; those little habanero hot sauces, and that’s still with home pickled garden and store peppers with garlic slices and apple cider vinegar and a bit of salt and pepper to help us through winter and beyond😉. It seems that once you break in your mouth enough to withstand some heat you start to taste the flavors of the food again, and that includes all of the variety of the chilis which really do have excellent flavors. But I don’t mind trying a new hot sauce. I’m not making any kids stuff! They can just eat ours (when they’re ready of course😉) anytime they want😁. My husband says that for him eating is just not satisfying if certain specific foods or some sort of majority of his meals does not burn, it feels kind of like eating air. Lucky for me I like them and they’re good for us! Unless we get to the end of the road with hot chilies like Roz has along with several others I know, including my in-laws. So if it isn’t that hot and it tastes good then the kids can start out it. As an aside, throughout my husband’s first several years in the Bay Area in the mid ninteen eighties we couldn’t get hot enough chilies anywhere around here at all. At first when he told me I thought “oh, I can get him some hot chili, no problem.” and then I learned what was hot enough for me wasn’t anywhere near hot enough. All of his family is the same. They say food is just boring and plain. No pizazz what so ever. That’s the part I don’t get.

Justifiable languor August 14, 2020 at 8:26 AM

Oh dear. None, as in haven’t tried the selection. I have Chrystal, TJs red salsa and Siracha. I prefer grinding my own peppers, or cayenne from Harvest House. They offer a variety of BTUs or whatever the heat detectors are.

Here’s a glance at heat levels for some popular hot peppers, according to the Scoville scale: Ghost Extremely Hot (over 1,000,000) Habanero Extra Hot (100,000 to 300,000) Tabasco Hot (30,000 to 50,000) Cayenne Hot (30,000 to 50,000) Jalapeño Medium (2,500 to 5,000) Poblano (Ancho) Mild (1,000 to …

Book report: So I put down one of the fat volumes I’m into and picked up a small, quick and easy old pocket book called The I Hate to Cook Book, Peg Bracken, 1960. There are some amusing parts of course. It does have recipes, also of course. But is so 1960’s! Casseroles, crackpots, double boilers and all!. Too many of them are cans of this, that, or another. There might not be all that much time committed to actual cooking but putting it all together sometimes is something else. If anyone wants to put together a retro 60’s meal for any time of the day or night, this one is for you.

The Fearless Spectator August 7, 2020 at 10:13 PM

If you want 1960’s retro with a southern twist, you might check out “Are You Hungry Tonight? Elvis’ favorite recipes”.

Silva August 8, 2020 at 12:58 PM

Lol! My mom bought it, and I read it long ago too. We did have a few chuckles. I don’t think we found it particularly useful either, even though “I hate to cook” could’ve been my mom’s own personal (unstated) mantra.

Gittyup August 8, 2020 at 1:17 PM

In 1967, one of my college roommates had a copy of Bracken’s “I Hate To Cook Book.” We referred to it often since none of us knew much about meal preparation. It was definitely 60s-style American fare with very simple dishes, nothing artisanal or gourmet. I still make hotdogs according to Bracken’s “recipe,” on the rare occasion that I make them. She had you make a slice down the center of the cooked hot dog, not cutting it all the way through, and inserting a crisp slice of bacon and slices of cheddar or Swiss cheese. Then, you put it in a bun and finished it off under the broiler, just to melt the cheese. It made a simple hot dog a little more interesting. 🌭🥓🧀

Kirkwood August 9, 2020 at 1:49 PM

I like to collect parodies, the Elvis topic reminds of this:

To: “Are You Lonesome Tonight”

Are you bloated tonight, does your tummy feel tight?
Did you bring your Mylanta and Tums?
Does your memory stray, to that bright sunny day…
When you had all your teeth and your gums?
Is your hairline receding, are your eyes growing dim?
Is it Botox for her, and Viagra for him?
Does your back give you pain…do your knees predict rain?
Tell me dear, are you bloated tonight?

Is your blood pressure up, your cholesterol down?
Are you eating your low-fat cuisine?
All that oat bran and fruit, Metamucil to boot,
keeps you running like a well-oiled machine.
If it’s football, or baseball…he sure knows the score.
Yes, he knows where it’s at…but forgets what it’s for.
So, your gall bladder’s gone, and his gout lingers on.
Tell me dear, are you bloated tonight?

When you’re hungry, she’s not…
When you’re cold, then she’s hot.
Then you start that old thermostat war.
When you turn out the light, he goes left, she goes right.
And you get his great symphonic snore.
He was once so romantic, and witty and smart.
How’d he ever turn in to that cranky old (brraak!) ?
So don’t take any bets, this is as good as it gets.
Tell me dear, are you bloated tonight?

Silva August 9, 2020 at 6:10 PM

That’s great, Kirkwood! Thanks. It made me think of Mad Magazine.

Lazy One August 7, 2020 at 9:30 PM

Schools are ready to start the new year. If parents are not happy they do have options. If you are able to home school there are lots of resources and a strong network system. You would not need to reinvent the wheel. Free online school. Teachers already trained in online education. Independent study. Again, teachers already working with students in a nontraditional form. All districts have this. It works great for students that do not like traditional school. Students work at own pace. High school students can finish and graduate early. Explore and do what is best for your children. Good luck!

Hanne Jeppesen August 7, 2020 at 9:34 PM

Best anti war song, Country Joe and the Fish, “Fixing to die rag” (love the Woodstock version) Phil Ochs “Draft Dodger Rag” or “Masters of War”. The last one of course written by Bob Dylan, but I always preferred it song by Pete Seeger, that is until I saw Eddie Vetter singing it at the Bob Dylan 30th anniversary, very powerful.

Country Joe performed live at Todos Santos plaza, some years ago, didn’t see him there, but saw him live in Golden Gate Park many years ago. Although liberal I understand that Joe McDonald has done a lot for the veterans, Michael Savage even had him in his program talking about that very issue. Sometimes liberals and conservatives agree, it happens.

nytemuvr August 7, 2020 at 11:47 PM

@Hanne Jeppesen….I don’t know, Edwin Starr had a pretty popular “anti-war” song in ’69…..https://youtu.be/01-2pNCZiNk

The Fearless Spectator August 8, 2020 at 9:01 AM

Here is another good one: “I don’t wanna get drafted” – By Frank Zappa from the album “You are what you is”.

Dawg August 8, 2020 at 10:03 AM

Interesting trivia, Country Joe was named after Joseph Stalin. At the time of Joe’s birth, his parents were Communists. They later left the Communist Party.

CJRN August 8, 2020 at 10:26 AM

And then there was the “fish” chant: Gimme an “F”…
Country Joe and the Fish, one of my favorites!

Silva August 8, 2020 at 1:07 PM

Country Joe and the Fish lived in a home down the street from us in the 1960s for a while. They kept it very low key while they were there. It was highly unusual at that time to see actual hippies arriving and departing in that neighborhood, but otherwise you wouldn’t even guess they were there. They worked a lot local gigs then, pre-fame and fortune stuff.

BOOYAH! August 8, 2020 at 9:45 AM

Sad day indeed. Loved Bob March. My brother and I got to be on his Captain Satellite Show in 1968. All my friends in 3rd grade watched me on live TV! I got to be Navigator and do the lift-off! Remember sitting on a bicycle and doing a live commercial for Schwinn. Was a little disappointed that it was only half of a flying saucer (TV set) and not a real one. We got candy and treats during the cartoons. Wow – what happened to those days?

The Fearless Spectator August 8, 2020 at 12:37 PM

Wow! I really wanted to be on Captain Satellite! The closest I got was at Capwells in Walnut Creek where he was signing autographs on what was basically a xerox of him emerging fro his spaceship. I still have it somewhere.

We dug Charlie and Humphrey also, and of course Sneezer.

Lazy One August 8, 2020 at 12:54 PM

Silva August 9, 2020 at 9:41 PM

I’m thinking of having a few “solar tubes” installed at my place to bring some light into a few darker indoor spaces, and I’m wondering if anyone has any experiences with them they’d care to share with me, or maybe by now they’re already pase, and you have an alternate suggestion? Thank you.

Kirkwood August 10, 2020 at 2:58 PM

I’ve been in one house with a Sola-Tube installed into a dark hallway. It was a sunny day and quit bright. That bright disk of light didn’t light the hall evenly and just didn’t look right to me.

Mary Fouts August 10, 2020 at 4:06 PM

Silva – My husband Jim (an architect) has mentioned these before; he’s worked on some older projects that had them installed. They “can” bring light in, but need proper placement so, as @Kirkwood states, they lighting is evenly distributed and not more of a spotlight. You also need to be concerned about roof leakage after installation, and any void to roof warranty if one exists.

I personally wouldn’t install them, but that’s just me. There are many low voltage light options available now to consider, including nightlight type lighting that will offer soft and effective illumination to hallways, etc. Mary

S August 10, 2020 at 5:29 PM

not a personal experience…

I know two folks who have had them installed; different contractors….

Not as functional as they had hoped; just kind of a nifty thing.
Both had roof leaks within a few years…

I’d advise against it……………

Silva August 11, 2020 at 1:05 PM

I should’ve mentioned that they would be installed or contracted for by the company who will replace the roof, but I’m also apprehensive about making any extra holes up there. One of the two larger rooms; the 1960s designated “family room” only has a sliding door part of the way through as a source of natural light. I was wondering if a large size solar tube in the far corner would make the room more inviting and the second half more usable, but a “spotlight” doesn’t really seem like that great of an idea. Maybe I should just get a window put in. And then there’s the forever dark hallway I think would be very nice to brighten up, but there’s already one electric fixture, an “attic” access door, the furnace intake, and soon will be a whole house fan intake all along the way, so the location choice is quite limited, but the idea of a bright spot anywhere in there sure is appealing. Hey y’all, thank you! I really do appreciate your sharing your own knowledge and observations.

Kirkwood August 11, 2020 at 3:13 PM

I should have been more descriptive, the “bright disk” referred to the light in the ceiling, not the floor, or space in general. Still didn’t look right.

Justifiable languor August 11, 2020 at 5:04 PM

Mirrors can reflect a lot of light. A sculpture of mosaic using reflective tiles can be fun. eggshell paint is reflective, a muted swath of aurora borealis traveling the hall path.

Leaded glass sculpture – like stained glass window but with opal beveled glass.

Silva August 11, 2020 at 8:35 PM

Kirkwood, it was a great description.

Justifiable languor, we noticed mirrors and reflective surfaces helped small spaces feel larger when we moved into this place with smaller rooms than we’d ever seen before. My mom and I put eight full length mirrors up on hallway doors in 1971 trying to amplify space and light, and there they remain. I could really use an aurora borealis.

Justifiable languor August 12, 2020 at 7:19 AM

Yes, a mosaic would light even less. I have heard of manufactured synthetic sunlight but I have never seen one that adequately reproduced the effect.

Maybe you could just encourage cobwebs. 😄 or a motion light tweaked to be decorative. Good luck. 🤔

I think the ASPCA ads are the worst. They attempt to make adults feel guilty, and they’re making the kids cry. I can’t even look at them. And the mountains of money they must be spending on them! It must be worth it though, or they’d stop.

Kirkwood August 11, 2020 at 10:46 AM

I hope that high school students are being counseled by their parents to become increasingly aware of what job opportunities would likely still be available, if a catastrophe like a pandemic, earthquake, wildfire occurs. They need to examine who lost their income due to the pandemic, and how do students prepare in high school for what they need to learn to make a living and be successful in the long term. Will they have job skills that allow them to make a living if the city, country, world goes to Hell in a hand basket? Unfortunately modern parents rely more and more upon services outside the home to raise and educate their children. High school Counselors might help but when I was a kid, Counselors were considered a joke.

Original G August 12, 2020 at 5:53 PM

Kirkwood, … You Sir are 1,000% correct.

Parents and Grand parents print out Kirkwood’s post and keep it handy for when high schoolers start talking about jobs or what job they might want.
Four year college degrees are over rated.

Being an industrial electrician with say five years experience, you can get a job just about anywhere in the world.

Mary Fouts August 14, 2020 at 11:58 AM

Kirkwood and Original G – My husband Jim and I have this very conversation periodically when we discuss the state of education (or lack thereof). College is right for some people, but certainly not all. It’s really a shame there are not more trade schools for young adults, in addition to the lack of skill-based classes such as shop, auto repair, and home ec in high schools. In addition, some of the majors students are graduating from college/university with are a joke, and do little if anything to provide a career path.

I graduated from high school in 1984. Counselors were a joke back then, completely of no help.

Kentucky Derby August 14, 2020 at 12:20 PM

It depends on what profession you’re going into, and whether or not that profession requires an undergrad or graduate degree. Not all kids are cut out for college, and if you’re “anti-college” you would’ve dropped or failed out anyway. If you were accepted in the first place.

High school counselors do a good job for students who excel academically, and take education seriously.

Overheard conversation at work today, man wants to gain craft training. He expressed concern he might not be able to get into classes this coming semester. To do so means taking classes at LMC, their ETEC program.

Told him not to worry, we have a Summer internship program where an LMC student gets to experience industrial electrical maintenance environment under supervision and our intern finished up last Friday. Told him even if program is full, have large amount of information used in Summer program to get him started toward his goal..

Yesterday decided after work today to go to Costco Antioch today. On way there car next to me honks. Was retired co-worker now involved teaching many classes in that program.
What are the chances ? ? ? coincidence, . . . I think not.

Let me digress, . . . see way too many people with little drive or who’ve given up, basically waiting on society to hand them what they need.

Wish my four Grand Kids could spend time listening to this man. Never knew his Father, Mother an addict died of AIDS. As a teen orphaned, homeless, living in abandoned buildings having to fend for himself. Now a man with two Sons he’s putting thru private high school.

He talked of how he’s raising and mentoring his Sons sharing with them his life experiences and knowledge. But what impressed me most, is here is a man who could have easily given up and waited on society’s handouts.

At an early age he decided being homeless, tired and hungry, to never be that way again. He’s a man with drive I don’t often see, a person you’ll do what you can to help him gain his goal. A person that restores ones faith in mankind.
