27 - 3
( Siri used the word subjugated )
Tick tick tick - Once again the University of Georgia Bulldogs did not really show up for a game. Ill prepared, non moved with some dude at quarterback that I never heard of - IN WEEK NINE. Also we have gone NINE quarters with out a touchdown/
Messy messy messy play with mystery qb throwing the ball to Gators as often as Bulldogs, we were not in it from the get go. The usual FIRE RICHT started before 00:00, this time with some extra pepper. The things that always happen when UGA has troubles in Jacksonville.
IT'S NOT LIKE I DID NOT DO MY PART !
Slow Cooker BBQ
King Hawaiian Sliders
( ham and Swiss cheese )
Pimento Cheese Sandwiches
Didn't do chocolate cookies because we had Halloween candy
I bet that almost ever other kick off of ours will be either noon or 7:30 or something...

The annual cutting of the Jack O Lanterns at Dahn and David's.
Spunky Neil out giving it his all with a nasty head cold!
David Dean was doing historically accurate carvings
Smith wicks got pumpkin seeds dropped on him.
I thought i took lots more pics than I did, I guess they were not clicking on my phone or something. There are two new kittens over there, and it was Koda's life mission to protect us all from them
Knives and Guinness
A Hillary Logo, to go with the infamous OBAMA-LANTERN from 8 years ago!
I made a big pot of Turkey Taco Soup
Random teenagers taking selfies instead of carving the pumpkins
David having some soup
It's a mummy
Shiny Happy Pumpkin.
You know these halls will be decked all in red and green come Monday, but at least they held out till now, not like so many other stores.

Perfect for HalloweenThe Breakdown : HILLARY BAD, GOVERNMENT BAD, MEDIA BAD... blah , blah, cut taxes for the rich.
The start of this debacle of a debate was just so uncomfortable for me that I almost just went back to my new book. It just puts me so ill at ease for all 10 of them to be shouting at one another and the moderators all at the same time, so desperate, needy and rude. It got better as the time went on, they did stop totally talking over one another. But it just seemed so very unprofessional .
There are just too many actors up on that stage, and the powers that be in the GOP need to do something about it or they are never ever going to get rid of Trump and Carson. There is not enough oxygen in the room to sustain all of these players.
A little bit of a shock when the screen time came out right after the fade to black, I was very surprised, I figured it was going to be the Rubio / Cruz show but no
Fiorna wins again!
Even though she was far from winning tonights debate. Tonight was , in my opinion Marco Rubio's night as he landed lots and lots of good GOP friendly jabs at Hillary, the others on the stage and the biggest boogie man of all the media. ( all that GOP black money does not matter - the DEMS have Anderson Cooper , or something like that )
I dont think Trump hurt himself either , bad for the others - and church mouse Carson hardly made a peep other than not hating the gays at all, which will do his campaign wonders , since the more he talks the more he worse off he is.
So no super stand out winner, but man was there ever a big time loser in Colorado tonight. Jeb! had to , had to, had to get some traction tonight , and for what ever reason decided to kick that off with a very poorly planed attack on his fellow Floridian Rubio over his voting recored in the Senate, and it just fell so fat guy belly flop bad on the folks there in the hall, and was shrill and desperate to those watching at home. I just dont think he wants to be President at all, I think his dad wants him to.. and he is just going through the motions . Will be very surprised if he is in this come the next one of these gatherings.
We ate pretty crappy the last couple of days.
Pizza on Monday and leftovers on Tuesday, so tonight we needed something close to healthy
( rotisserie from across the street )
Wild Rice Blend
Squash and Onions*
* That Chef and the Farmer way of doing Squash and Onions, cooking the onions a LONG time ( and use lots ) then adding the thinly sliced squash and cooking a good while longer. Just salt and little pepper - the best way I have ever found for cooking the summer favorite.
HRH Prince Harry in DC to hang with Barack and Michelle AND promote his fantastic cause
THE INVICTUS GAMES
Those Windsor genes are creeping up on our favorite ginger Prince very rapidly.
All tongue and cheek, HERE are many more pics of this seemingly really nice young man doing some very important work.

Pre heat to 350º - just mix these all together, it came together pretty easy for me just by hand, but you could use a food processor. Kneed for a bit, then roll out to about a half and inch and cut with cookie cutters. In the oven for 30 - 35 min
At first I just assumed I was getting all these seasonal dog treat recipes in m y searches, but no, it turns out that most of them use canned pumpkin as a binder. The only thing I had to go out and buy was whole wheat flower.
I made little squirrels as well.

He was a very sweet dog
Two very much alike, but I think the sky and trees are really pretty in these
Then Koda did some practice trick or treating at the house where the people carved their pumpkins too early this year
- Ohio State
- Michigan State
- Notre Dame
- Oklahoma State
- Florida State
- OLE MISS
- MISSISSIPPI STATE
Heading into the last week in October, where do we stand on who will be standing come the new year ? It is almost comical how things are playing out with all these top 10 games coming so late in the season.
#1 Ohio State has the weekend off
#2 Baylor off so all the Baptists can close their doors and pray away Halloween
#3 Clemson has North Carolina
#4 LSU has an off week so they can all go to New Orleans for Halloween
#5 TCU has a Thursday game this week against West Virginia, seems like that could mean something.
#6 Michigan State has the weekend off
#11 Florida Gators do not have the weekend off ...
The standing of either Georgia or Florida have ever really mattered when it comes to the WLOCP - so you never know...
