You're welcome!

It does make you feel like a kid again, doesn't it?

Several years ago, 8 of us 'girls' spent 4 days there. Talk about a second childhood! We had such a great time nobody wanted to leave.

4 of us are Californians but the others are Arkansas, Missouri, New Jersey, and Wisconsin!

A TOTAL BLAST was had by all!

Reading sure can be fun/interesting. :)

Of all the books you read, what would be your favorite type/genre of book?

The Chinese Cabbage was just taken out of the ground, washed, and chopped up and stir-fried. It was so fresh and crunchy, unlike anything i have ever purchased in a store. I have a big crop, so I will fry some up, Polish Style, maybe make some Japanese pickles, or kimchee.

I shall have to get an authentic recipe for kimchee from some Korean Folks.

I like Historical Fiction. The Thicker, the Better! Some of my OLD favorites are Moby Dick and Ben Hur.

I have read Ben Hur, but not Moby Dick.

I love historical fiction (and plain old history books) too. Especially ones about wars. :)

I LOVE the stuff!

I wrote a rock’n’roll song about the Korean National Dish.

“Bibimbop!”

‘Don’t leave the barbecued meat on the side,
Take it and the rice along for the ride.
Don’t leave that chili sauce sitting on top.
Mix it down into your Bibimbop!”

"Talk about a second childhood!"

No better place to experience your second chidhood-or maybe "Splash Mountain"? I was there along time ago and it was so much fun! Just you all being together at Disneyland was so much fun, I'm expecting!! I can just see you all giggling, like school girls! What a memory!!! :)

Why Thank You!

Mr. kabong and I ran out of money in Honolulu. We just had $10 between us, and hadn’t eaten in four days.

We ended up in a little Korean joint on the waterfront, and asked the mama there what she could do for us for $10.00.

She bought out TROUGHS of Bibimbop, and we made up for the four days that we hadn’t eaten! LOL!

Yum!

No wonder you have such fond memories and such a fondnes
for that particular dish! I don’t suppose I’ve ever eaten
Korean food. Mr LUV was stationed in Korea and he didn’t have
many good things to say about it...especially the kimchee. LOL!

Bibimbop is actually “Glorified Leftovers”.

Kind of like “Mustgo Soup” as in :”Everything in the Fridge Must Go!” LOL

A mountain of Rice, with egg and BBQ meat on top, surrounded by pickles and fresh or marinated veggies of every description. A side dish of kimchee, and the mysterious atomic Korean Chile sauce. Mix it all up and eat with an oversized tablespoon!

It taste different than any other Asian Cuisine, whether Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Thai, or Vietnamese.

Korea is a cold and desolate place, so the emphasis is on HEARTY and FILLING! :-)

Cold and desolate.....just about the way my hubby described it.

No wonder they like very hot food there. Good way to keep warm. LOL!

We not only giggled but I've got pix I could do some serious black mailing...lol.

First of all, we had 2 suites right across the street from the place! Made it so convenient!

We bought some phony tattoos and were plastering them on ourselves for one whole evening. Most of the pix are a riot. Some women will show things you never expected..LOL.

Happy New Year & Happy Lord's Day to all here.

I am still in Oklahoma for another week. Been really busy being a super tourist & enjoying the time. Hoping things at home are okay but little one can do so far away.

One of the outings was at a place called Draper LakeCLICK where you can collect Rose Rocks = the state Rock. These pix are on Facebook & you should be able to see them. Josy & Toby went with my brother & I. Will return on Monday for a good romp for the dogs.

The pix below was taken a few years ago in Kent Ohio in Winter. This is an area I kayak in during warmer weather. It is on the back of a large cemetery & the same river that runs behind my home 40 miles away (the Cuyahoga River) and eventually dumps into Lake Erie in Cleveland

Freep mail me to be on or off the Daily Bread ping list

Trouble
January 2, 2011

Does it surprise you that trouble is a part of life? Probably not. We all know trouble close-up and personal—bad health, empty bank account, blighted love, grief, loss of job, and the list goes on.

It shouldn’t surprise us, therefore, that God permits the added trials of being ridiculed and hated because we follow Christ (1 Peter 4:12). But trouble, whether it is common to man or unique to Christians, can reveal to us the moral fiber of our soul.

I have never seen a golf course without hazards. They are part of the game. Golfers speak of the courses with the most hazards as the most challenging, and they will travel a long way to test their skill against the most demanding 18 holes.

Oliver Wendell Holmes said, “If I had a formula for bypassing trouble, I wouldn’t pass it around. I wouldn’t be doing anyone a favor. Trouble creates a capacity to handle it . . . . Meet it as a friend, for you’ll see a lot of it and you had better be on speaking terms with it.”

Let’s not think it strange when trouble comes, for God is using it to test the stamina of our souls. The best way to handle trouble is to commit our “souls to Him in doing good, as to a faithful Creator” (v.19).

The troubles that we face each day
Reveal how much we need the Lord;
They test our faith and strength of will
And help us then to trust God’s Word. —D. De Haan

Great triumphs are born out of great troubles.

Read: 1 Peter 4:12-19

Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you. —1 Peter 4:12
Bible in a year:
Genesis 4-6; Matthew 2

SPRING IS COMING
(I promise!)

SPRING
by William Blake

Sound the Flute! Now it's mute.
Birds delight Day and Night;
Nightingale In the dale,
Lark in Sky,
Merrily, Merrily, Merrily, to welcome in the Year.

Little Boy, Full of joy;
Little Girl, Sweet and small;
Cock does crow, So do you;
Merry voice, Infant noise,
Merrily, Merrily, to welcome in the Year.
