    Bible software for Linux

    I just tried to download theword.net on my Windows laptop and got the message from my ISP. Harmful website blocked This site has been reported as harmful, We recommend that you do not visit this site I have Online bible on DVD, but that only works for a short time then gives errors. I suspect this is because it is Unicode and I also have Quicken accounts program and that is non Unicode. When I tried to install it yesterday, it said it was already installed and I have to uninstall it first. But in the past when I tried to uninstall it, it said it wasn't necessary to uninstall it first.. This morning I went into settings to uninstall it and it wasn't listed in the apps. In the past it was listed but I got the major Windows 10 update a couple of days ago so that might have something to do with it.

    I did chicken tikka masala with rice today. It is a mild curry, I got the sauce from a jar. I had the same today, still some left in the jar which I will probably use on Monday.

    Is Time To Talk Impeaching Trump

    Of course it should, but even if it was changed it would be a lie, as if he was too old to care he wouldn't care about trump.

    Happy Mother's Day (in Australia)

    DaveW, I am glad your wife enjoyed it. Actually I had no idea what High tea and low tea was so I asked Mr Google, When we were in France a few years ago, we went into a small supermarket the day before their Mothers Day, All the lady shoppers were given a red rose.

    The Difference Between High Tea & Low Tea We British are famous worldwide for our so called ‘traditions’ of High Tea and Low Tea, but if you’ve never heard of them, or don’t know the difference between them, you are definitely not alone. It is a stereotype, of course. All British men wear top hat and tails, English ladies only communicate by handwritten letter and everyone, from scruffy students to busy billionaires, have tea in the afternoon. It may no longer be a tradition here in the UK to take tea in the afternoon, but millions of us eat tea every day as a main meal. Here we explode the myths about taking tea in Britain and reveal the big differences between High Tea and Low Tea. High Tea Contrary to popular belief and the aristocratic sounding name, High Tea did not originate amongst upper classes. In fact, the opposite is true; High Tea is a predominantly working class meal that was traditionally taken between 5 and 7pm – the time that labourers would arrive home from their physically demanding jobs. It was called High Tea because, in contrast to the cakes and tea at low coffee tables of the upper class Low Tea, High Tea was enjoyed at a high table – the dining table. The foods enjoyed at High Tea were diametrically opposite to those at Low Tea. Low Tea was intended as a light snack to tide someone over until dinner. High Tea was an energy packed meal designed to sustain those who worked hard all day long. Instead of crustless cucumber sandwiches and petit fours, workers would dig in to meat pies, pickled salmon, cold cuts, bread and butter and jam. Tea, the beverage, was also drunk in copious quantities. Low Tea In the mid-1830’s, the Duchess of Bedfordshire was suffering from what we might today call a mid-afternoon slump. With a long gap between mid-morning breakfast and dinner at 8pm, she began to take a light meal in the afternoon, which consisted of tea, sandwiches and cake served at a coffee table in her room. She began to invite her friends to enjoy this meal with her and before long the practice had spread to the rest of the country as a social, afternoon meal. And so Low Tea was born - the high class and quintessentially British tradition that is also known as Afternoon Tea. It couldn’t sustain a working class labourer, but was enough to tide over the leisure-loving ladies of the upper classes until their evening meal. The tradition is enjoying somewhat of a revival amongst the British public, but is used only as an occasional treat rather than a regular meal. The differences between High Tea and Low Tea reflect some of the differences between the classes. Working people didn’t have time to take leisurely afternoon meals, in the same way the non-working classes couldn’t face a heavy meal at five o’clock when dinner was served at eight. Even today, modern workers tend to have ‘tea’ at around 6pm after work, with a biscuit and a cup of coffee to get them through the afternoon. These days, Afternoon (Low) Tea is the preserve of smart hotels for birthday treats, whereas High Tea (minus the actual tea) is still an everyday meal taken by millions of people. We usually call the evening meal "tea"

    I think ours is in March. In France the Fête de Mères (Mother's Day Feast) is on the 27th May.

    I have not had a good pizza from any chain. Had some really good ones from independents. Had steak and sautéed potatoes again this evening

    We don't often have baked beans, but when we do it is usually on toast. I have never had them in a picnic, not that we have had a picnic for years. I have had them cold as leftovers. I don't think they taste the same since they reduced the salt and sugar in them. Today I had lamb leg steak, sautéed potatoes with garlic and parsley, steamed carrot and extra fine beams and I did Cauliflower cheese for Kay and I had a bit of that as well.

    Back in the days when my wife did the cooking she sometimes did "Boston Baked Beans". I think she used to put muscovado sugar in them..

    I guess some people do. We don't usually have breakfast. Kay has a piece of hard cheese as it is supposed to be good for her osteo perosis. On the ferry to France, they have Full English Breakfast, This consists of Egg (fried or scrambled) bacon, fried bread, baked beans, mushrooms, tomato and hash browns (although I don't think they are English). Finish off with a couple of slices of toast and marmalade. served with tea or coffee. Several times with our ticket we have had a voucher to get two breakfasts for the price of one. We took the offer once but as we arrive in France in time for lunch we didn't take it again.
