    Morphine dreams are great. No need to go to the movies and the CGI is spot on.

    my new mormon dr is so tight with them for me, but he gives ma buckets of them.
    i figure opiate addiction would be a very painful emotional and physical experience.

    Well it's been 10 years since I signed on to the ww2f forum and a lot has changed in those ten years. Mainly I've been able to connect with some fine people who share the same interest and find answers to many of the questions I had. This forum has given me the opportunity to 'speak' to folks from literally around the world. While I sit here in the Great White North I've been able to have conversations with a phalanx (keeping with a military bend here) of solid individuals who are experts in the field of Military science. The amount of knowledge found here, if one cares to pursue, challenges what you might expect to find in a top notch college. We have the ability to share information and more importantly compile decades of experience in one place. From the average 'Joe' to respected Authors and Historians, forum members never hesitate to jump in and assist others in their quest for that "Does anyone know ........" first post.

    So here's to looking forward to the next 10.

    Thanks and a hand salute to Otto and all those "behind the scenes" keeping this place going and growing.

    With everything else going on I just received the census form for the 2020 headcount and thanks to the general government FUBAR, questions piled up fast. For one; Why did I get multiple copies? I only live in one house at this address but three questionnaires seem a bit much.
    Two; under the "What is your Race" they also want to know my Origin such as English, German, Italian, Lebanese, Egyptian etc: I'm two of those plus Scotch, French and possibly more.

    There's enough room to write " American Mutt " so I guess I'll put that down.
    Ten years ago they just asked "What is your Race" which made it very simple, I wrote Human.

    Top geneticists...will tell you there isn't enough genetic difference to actually be different races anyway...so you're spot on.

    That's nonsense; there are two distinct races: the one that likes broccoli and the other one.

    Since my maternal side of the family is Irish we had what (in our house) was called Irish stew. I'm not too sure it would have passed any Erin culinary test though. It consisted of one head of cabbage and a few potatoes boiled til the cabbage was falling apart and the potatoes were good and mushy. Probably where I got my passion for Salt. A bowl of "stew" was nearly palatable as long as you shook the salt shaker a good four or five minutes over the bowl. Broccoli on the other hand only needs salt, pepper and a half pound of butter per serving to give it a subtle aftertaste.

    My favorite broccoli recipes:

    1) Soup. Some garlic or onion in a little olive oil. Add chicken stock and broccoli. Simmer until broccoli is soft and then blend until soft. Salt pepper to taste. Simple and simply delicious.

    2) Sauteed broccoli. An old recipe. Cut broccoli into large pieces or florets. Sauté broccoli in some butter along with some thickly sliced garlic and a good pinch of turmeric. Salt & Pepper to taste. Wonderful. The turmeric totally makes this.

    The Spice of Life is the diversity of all things. Broccoli on the other hand is one of those things one has to become accustom to I think. In my humble opinion it is tasteless and the texture is one of "What the He## IS this!" But then again, to each their own. My wife gets queasy at the mere aroma of Liver cooking. Which works well for us because I'm not particularly interested in it either.

    Sauerkraut takes some getting used to. Luckily I like sour things.

    The liver is the garbage collector of the circulatory system. Just sayin'.
