How To Fry A Turkey (Not Like Uncle Si)
Posted on 11.28.13 by Danny Glover @ 10:16 am

My wife remembers with much amusement the first time my Mom and I fried a turkey for Thanksgiving. Mom had done so much research into the safety hazards of the cooking technique that both of us were terrified of catching the house or ourselves on fire.

We placed the fryer on the very outer edge of the concrete patio in our backyard to put as much distance as possible between the fryer and our house. We stretched the gas line that runs between the propane tank and the burner as far as it would go and then stood as far away as our arms would reach to light the flame. When it came time to lower the turkey into the boiling vat of oil, we would have used a 10-foot pole if we had one, just to ensure our safety.

We were quite the spectacle as my wife watched from the kitchen window.

But hey, at least we didn’t end up like Si Robertson of “Duck Dynasty” fame in this warning video from State Farm:

Be careful out there this Thanksgiving, all you enlightened rednecks with deep fryers!

The Dark Days Of ‘Duck Dynasty’
Posted on 11.23.13 by Danny Glover @ 3:32 am

A deadbeat dad, a prodigal son and a suicidal grandson — meet the Robertsons of “Duck Dynasty” fame who you don’t get to see on the popular A&E television series every week.

In a video produced for the “I Am Second” movement, family patriarch Phil Robertson, his youngest son Jep and his grandson Reed share stories from their darkest days and how faith and family pulled them through the spiritual turbulence. The half-hour film features several powerful anecdotes that illustrate the crushing weight of sin and the great relief that Jesus Christ freely offers to all men who seek forgiveness and then obey Him.

At one point, Phil Robertson explains the difference between rednecks and “river rats” — and why he gave the fish that fed his family to one group of thieving river rats in particular. He recounted the story while recalling the Bible’s teachings about being good to your enemies, praying for those who persecute you, not returning evil for evil and feeding those who are hungry.

“These river rats would steal my fish; I’d caught several of them before,” he said, adding that he always threatened them with death by shotgun. God’s commands didn’t make any “earthly sense” to him, but Phil Robertson decided to try it God’s way.

Why We Home-School, Lesson #48
Posted on 11.19.13 by Danny Glover @ 9:15 pm

We don’t want to be arrested by an overzealous policeman on a power trip supported by school officials. That’s what happened to parent Jiim Howe when he arrived to pick up his two children after school.

Howe says because of a new policy that started last week, the only way parents can get their children after 2 p.m. is to wait in a line of cars until everyone is released at 2:35. He says not only is this time consuming, it’s illegal.

“You don’t need a reason as a parent to go get your children. They are our children,” Howe said.

… The sheriff says he agrees with Howe on principle. Both men say the new policy is creating safety concerns, mainly because there is line of cars that along the highway outside of the school. [Cumberland County Sheriff Butch] Burgess says parents should take any policy concerns to those in charge of the policy, not the school resource officer.

Sorry, but in this case, both the sheriff’s deputy and the school policy were wrong. The deputy had the discretion not to arrest the man, and he chose to use a heavy hand. Homeschoolers don’t have fetch their children from a prison-like “holding area” or fear arrest if they challenge a nonsensical policy.
