What guy can say no to SEX or CHOCOLATE?



Tomorrow September 22nd is National White Chocolate Day!



White chocolate was invented by the Nestlé company in Switzerland. The first white chocolate bar was debuted in 1930.



Despite its long history, for many years the confection we know as “white chocolate” was not officially chocolate at all. White chocolate does not contain cocoa solids—one of the main ingredients in traditional chocolate.



In 2004, ten years after chocolate manufacturers filed the first petition, the FDA finally relaxed its definition of “chocolate” and accepted white chocolate into the family. According to the regulations, true white chocolate must contain at least 20% cocoa butter, 14% total milk solids, 3.5% milk fat, and less than 63% sugar.

While I spend my day creatively working away setting forms, tieing iron, mixing and pouring concrete I see our jealous resident shithead has been busy "defaming" ( See you illiterate fucking moron this is the correct usage and spelling of the word) me in blogs. I had a blog topic from this morning but we had a power outage the PC shut down and I lost my topic and train of thought. I am self employed and I work my ass off from sun up till sun down and many nights, like today I finish our dinner up at around 8 pm ( about sun down, I set down with JD and just fucking fall asleep from sheer exhaustion. Something that halfwitted UK son of a bitch has never done in his worthless life. He and his fake profiles are not smart enough to research, write and produce anything positive or up lifting for the Gay community at large or this site in particular. his life has been wasted jealously coveting other's accomplishments too lazy ore just plain stupid to figure out how to work and earn them himself.

National Pepperoni Pizza Day!

Multiple surveys have shown pepperoni to be the favorite pizza topping of Americans, and over a third of the pizzas in the country are topped with it. So it comes as no surprise that tomorrow September 20th is National Pepperoni Pizza Day.



Pepperoni takes its name from "peperoni"—with one "p"—an Italian name for a pepper. In Italy, what Americans call pepperoni is known as "salame piccante"—spicy salami. Pepperoni is a dried sausage made of a mixture of pork, beef, and spices, often including peppers. The name pepperoni began being used following World War I, primarily in Italian-American communities. At this time, pepperoni was primarily used as an appetizer, eaten on cured meat plates.



Pizza began becoming popular in America after World War II, and the first evidence of pepperoni on pizza dates to 1950. It gained in popularity at the same time that chain pizza restaurants were proliferating—Pizza Hut opened in 1958 and Dominoes opened in 1960. Pepperoni was easy to supply and transport long distances, and could easily be mass produced. It does not need to hang as long as many other types of meat: it may be ready in one to three weeks, while other meats, such as capicola, may take months to be ready, making them impractical for pizza.



Pizza itself has a long history. Pie-shaped flatbreads with toppings were first eaten in Naples in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. At the time, this coastal city was not part of Italy, but its own kingdom. The working poor, or lazzaroni, lived outside or in small homes, and needed cheap food. Pizza consisted of flatbread with toppings such as tomatoes, garlic, cheese, oil, or anchovies, and it was sold by street vendors and informal restaurants, and eaten for any meal. Pizza didn't end up becoming popular in the rest of Italy until the 1940s.



It was in the United States, where Neapolitans immigrated to, that pizza gained in popularity. The first pizzeria in the United States was Lombardi's, which was started in New York City in 1905. Lombardi's is still in business, and although it is in a new location, the original oven is still in use.



Neapolitans brought pizza to many other cities, including Trenton, New Haven, St. Louis, Chicago, and Boston. Pizza became popular all over the country, especially following World War II. Many styles of crusts and different toppings became popular in different regions. Eventually, pizza made its way back to Italy, as well as to other parts of the world.

A long hard day and I just could not get excited about Butterscotch Pudding Day or these historical events that took place

1356 English forces under The Black Prince defeat French at Battle of Poitiers and capture the French King during the Hundred Years War
1870 Siege of Paris by Prussian Forces begins (lasts until January 28 1871)
1893 New Zealand becomes the first country to grant all women the right to vote
1985 8.1 earthquake in Mexico City kills an estimated 10,000 and leaves 250,000 homeless
1986 US Federal health officials announce AZT will be available to AIDS patients

It's been a long hard day JD finally got the Iron put together and by the time I got it put into the form I did not feel like mixing and pouring cement. So we went into town for dinner... (my treat) came home and I fell asleep watching TV and I just want to go back to bed.. tomorrow is another day.

Most of the weekend I busied myself out in the Beemer Pad. I laid in the last course of cement blocks and grouted many of them after setting the connecting reinforcing iron. I set and connected the electrical too. The sump pump has to wait for the final formed pour for the proper elevation. That scanky looking broken block wall in the forefront is a retaining wall to hold the fill sand at the proper level and will be covered by the final slab. I set the rebar mat and poured the far slab today. If I get any time tomorrow I will try to remove the forms and get them set for the next pour after JD (with Ronnie's keen assistance) gets the angel iron cut and welded up for me. This next slab is critical for the top landing before descending down the steps into the pit. God help me to get this done and the ramp out before harvesting begins.

Happy Birthday !

Yes.... It's a Big Happy Birthday to our neighbors to the South. On September 16, 1810 the Mexican War of Independence began.



Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, a Catholic priest, launches the Mexican War of Independence with the issuing of his Grito de Dolores, or “Cry of Dolores,” The revolutionary tract, so-named because it was publicly read by Hidalgo in the town of Dolores, called for the end of 300 years of Spanish rule in Mexico, redistribution of land, and racial equality. Thousands of Indians and mestizos flocked to Hidalgo’s banner of the Virgin of Guadalupe, and soon the peasant army was on the march to Mexico City.



In the early 19th century, Napoleon’s occupation of Spain led to the outbreak of revolts all across Spanish America. Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla–“the father of Mexican independence”–launched the Mexican rebellion with his “Cry of Delores,” and his populist army came close to capturing the Mexican capital. Defeated at Calderón in January 1811, he fled north but was captured and executed. He was followed by other peasant leaders, however, such as José María Morelos y Pavón, Mariano Matamoros, and Vicente Guerrero, who all led armies of native and racially mixed revolutionaries against the Spanish and the Royalists.



Ironically, it was the Royalists–made up of Mexicans of Spanish descent and other conservatives–who ultimately brought about independence. In 1820, liberals took power in Spain, and the new government promised reforms to appease the Mexican revolutionaries. In response, Mexican conservatives called for independence as a means of maintaining their privileged position in Mexican society.


Agustín de Iturbide,

In early 1821, Agustín de Iturbide, the leader of the Royalist forces, negotiated the Plan of Iguala with Vicente Guerrero. Under the plan, Mexico would be established as an independent constitutional monarchy, the privileged position of the Catholic Church would be maintained, and Mexicans of Spanish descent would be regarded as equal to pure Spaniards. Mexicans of mixed or pure Indian blood would have lesser rights.



Guadalupe Victoria

Iturbide defeated the Royalist forces still opposed to independence, and the new Spanish viceroy, lacking money, provisions, and troops, was forced to accept Mexican independence. On August 24, 1821, Spanish Viceroy Juan de O’Donojú signed the Treaty of Córdoba, which approves a plan to make Mexico an independent constitutional monarchy. In 1822, as no Bourbon monarch to rule Mexico had been found, Iturbide was proclaimed the emperor of Mexico. However, his empire was short-lived, and in 1823 republican leaders Santa Anna and Guadalupe Victoria deposed Iturbide and set up a republic, with Guadalupe Victoria as its first president.
