Homeless In Clarksville TN 2020

Better than homeless in FL but it still sux!

Trying to make my way east, where I had originally planned to and felt like it mattered more to go.

There's more going on over there that would be helpful to me.

My Negative Covid Screening Results!

The reasons why I had to have it, didn't work out, but a negative result is awesome.

I keep to myself quite a bit, wear the mask, and practice good hygiene. As much as one can under the current circumstances.

So hopefully that will continue to be one less thing to worry about.






Music Can Be Therapeutic (NSFW possibly)

It can lessen the intensity of the bad things in life and if one song doesn't work for you, no worries... 

There is so much great music out there, you can switch that tune out for something that does work.

Here's a playlist I've been working on for a while now, I've included my google sheets notes that has some commentary related to events of my life or thoughts about different things.

I still work on this from time to time, add to it, take away, and / or revise the commentary / notes because sometimes my thinking does get adjusted.

Sometimes for the better, other times not. 

Try not to take things too personal unless it is about you and it applies. 

It's probably going to be triggering for some people. Not as bad as the previous post probably was, so sorry for that, but do try to be more upset with the abusive arseholes, and not me. 

Please and thanks.

I didn't get this way by myself.

So, here they are...

The Spotify Playlist: Once Upon A Time

My Google Sheets Commentary: Commentary PlylstNts

The commentary may not be in the exact order that the playlist is, or vice versa maybe, but that isn't exactly the point of this right now.

I have left the comments option available on this post but hope that all you will share is your own playlists or possibly commentary about how music has also helped you throughout your own life.

All music is welcome even if you didn't see the title / genre in this playlist.

Thanks for stopping by. 

Hoping you at least find some tunes here that you enjoy.

Old Fashioned Banana Bread


Main Image of Previously Published Post


Ingredients





2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 - 3/4 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 large or 4 small bananas (mashed)
2 whole eggs
1 Stick of Butter (softened)
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp vanilla

***

Preheat your oven to 350.


Grease one 9x5 or two 8x4 loaf pans.

Tip: You can use a brush or the discarded butter wrapper with the shortening to grease the pan for less mess on your hands.


***

Mash bananas in a bowl, blend in the brown sugar and vanilla extract, set aside.


In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar.



Add the eggs to the butter / sugar mixture



and blend together until fluffy



Combine dry items together.




Mix together the dry and wet ingredients.




Add banana mixture, and mix until well combined.




Add Chocolate Chips and stir by hand.






Bake at 350 for 35 minutes and then lower the oven to 325 and bake for another 20-25 minutes, keeping an eye on the bread toward the end of the baking time.




Bread is done when a toothpick or cake tester has only a few moist crumbs on it.

*If more baking time is needed, bake an additional five minutes, adding more five minute increments, as needed until bread is done. It can take the bread an hour +/- to completely bake.

Cool in pan for 10 minutes.



Remove from pan, let cool completely on a cooling rack.


Serve with coffee, tea, or your other favorite beverage.

This recipe is a favorite at our house and we hope that you enjoy this Old Fashioned Banana Bread as much as we do.


Missing Alpha Files

In the process of switching things around I seem to have lost many files. I would like to continue to make some of those available to others and have access for my own projects. 

I would appreciate it if there is anyone that downloaded either of these two Alpha's to upload the zips to your own Google Drive, Drop Box, or some other that is not overloaded with ads or popups and then share the link here in the comments. 

This way I can download and make it available to others again. You can continue to share after that if you like for these two Alpha's or stop sharing from your accounts. 

Thanks in advance for your assistance.
