Making hard-cooked eggs for egg salad or potato salad.....

1. Go to salad bar at the grocery store.
2. Fill a take-out container with hard-cooked eggs.
3. Take eggs home and chop them up.

See post 51. Someone posted that he went to Mayo’s. Mayo’s, New York etc. I don’t think it matters. Carter refused his entry until Kissinger and others interceded.

The fact that Carter made him leave is a disgrace. Total disgrace. And what did it do for Carter, nothing. Tehran gave him the finger anyway.

Nothing gets my anger up more than Jimmy Carter. This generation has forgotton things that they will need to relearn under Obama. You have a weak minded presidency and it leads to our weakness in the world, and the outcome is usually at our expense.

Already, Obama is cozying up his rhetoric with North Korea, Iran, Russia and all the other Anti Isreal terrorist groups out there.

That was me quoting Wikipedia as saying that he went to the Mayo Clinic (Rochester, Minnesota). Some more research showed that was not the case. That's the second major error I've seen on Wikipedia in two days.

Nothing gets my anger up more than Jimmy Carter.

I try not to get so angry that I start believing stuff that isn't true.

I'm probably not qualified to judge whether the Shah was a "good man", but one thing I remember from about 1978 was meeting a student from Iran. He appeared to be in a state of shock after hearing that the Shah's security forces had just machine-gunned a student demonstration in his homeland.

Deliberately cracking and de-shelling the eggs won’t do for Easter eggs.

Otherwise, it’d be worth a try just for plain eggs.

My attending was from Iran or Persia as he would put it. He was the nicest most patient man I had ever met. He talked calmly about how much the Shah had done for his country, but in later years how he had cracked down on student protests etc. It was like when you rebel against your parents as a teenager once they give you a taste of freedom with the car, and then they take it away from you. He too, was upset about the killing of some students, just as we had our Kent State. I can ASSURE you that your friend and my friend probably have never returned to Iran and long for the days when the Shah was alive. Iran was one of the richest countries in the world and had one of the largest milataries. It had writers, scientists, poets, musicians etc. Khomeini killed them all unless they had fled the country. The terrorist problems of today can be traced back to the Carter years and his passivity. I think in time we will find more proof that Carter was a communist sympathizer. ONe thing is that with forums like this, Obama won't get to far if he tries to do the same things that Carter did.

Yes, it is great. Next: What to do with the hard-cooked eggs once you have them.

Excellent suggestion, except that someone always takes the yolks out of the hard-cooked eggs at my local salad bar. Bunch of hard-cooked whites sitting there in a little pool of water. Yum.

That’s disgusting! The salad bar at my Giant has them just as if you had stuck them in one of those little egg-slicer things.
