How Stonehenge Was Built?

Do you ever wonder why I post somewhat educational guy videos here? It beats storing them forever in email.

See this amazing youtube where a Michigan guy figures out (and demonstrates) how tons and tons and tons of rocks and blocks can be lifted without fossil fuels.

My hero works in the field of architecture. This is fascinating stuff.

The Ultimate Blog Party and Food, too!

I've been having so much fun with the party at my everyday blog, I wanted to keep it going over here.

What you need to know about this one is that I keep no publishing schedule. Basically this information is for me, my friends, and anyone else who is interested. So if that includes you, and if you don't want to be bothered checking back all the time, email subscription is available in the sidebar.

Now, what's for dinner?

Easiest Ever Chicken Adobo (adapted from Sunset magazine)

6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs or 3 large breasts
6 cloves of garlic, pressed
2/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup soy sauce
1 14 oz can coconut milk
1 tsp whole black peppercorns
1 bay leaf

1. put everything in the crockpot.
2. if you had the forethought to thaw the chicken, cook for half a day.
3. if not, cook all day.
4. or cook on high.

Serve with rice. Or whatever.

This is not hot unless you happen to bite down on a peppercorn and chew it up without anything else in your mouth.

Thanks for dropping by!

Two Guest Posts, One Common Theme

Train up a child in the way he should go,
Even when he is old he will not depart from it.
Proverbs 22:6 NASB

  • A barely related plan for Raising Bargain Princesses at The Bargain Queen. This strategy is IMO the way to raise modest daughters, as well. One thing I would add, probably under the category "around age 9": When she expresses interest in magazines, buy her books instead.

Also new at The Space Between My Peers: a category for Teens! Every Tuesday I plan to post something on Teen Style. What would you like to see?
