ibstubro’s story

I’m a middle aged guy in the Middle West growing a little around the middle as I enjoy my semi-retirement.

I’m pretty open minded. I keep my eyes wide open and I’m not afraid to open my mouth if I think someone/something is unjust.

Politics in the US bite. Billions of people, and not a single, decent, born leader wants to lead the USofA. Sad.

I love words. Wordplay. When not otherwise occupied I take out a handful of words in my mind, and I play with them.

Bird lovers will note that my current avatar is an Indigo Bunting. I’m lucky they sometimes nest behind my house, while others find them elusive.

I told my family this yesterday, my mom said “oof” but they don’t think I’m crazy. They love Ireland. I’ll take a look – the only thing I know now that concerns me is their draconian views on abortion – though I practice very safe sex and don’t expect to ever need one, it frightens me to be someplace where I know they’re unavailable. It is just obvious to me that my body could not handle a pregnancy. Of course, that could be the US soon too.

I’ll do some of this research today. I’m having a good morning and have some energy.

Hi—I’m interested in this post:


I’d like to try this but don’t want to mess it up. Can you please help with some questions?

Is that really the whole recipe? No extra rising ingredients?

What kid of cake mix? I assume you mean a box such as Betty Crocker yellow cake.

Have you tried it with spice cake mix?

Grease and flour the pans as for cake?

Does this come out with a texture like cake or more like banana bread? Loaf pans suggest the latter.

I think this was tasteful, paraphrasing Whoopi Goldberg’s tribute to him this afternoon while invoking one of his songs. I think that is an appropriate thread to leave a couple of paragraphs describing the loss of this genius. What’s really amazing is that ucme started the thread. I actually think he is touched by Prince’s passing.

Yeah, it’s for Gail. Nothing organized or planned. I think keeping it low-key and spintaneous would be more effective (IMHO).
