Bloggers PhotoMy Biography ...

I was the son of a drover and went to work as a man
from the age of 10. So if I seem a bit coarse and uneducated, perhaps its because  i lack schooling.
The only learning I got was from life and the hard knocks. Then at 15 I was thrown from a race horse and kicked in the head. So for 15 years I was in a fog of stupidity. Which didn't help my cause but maybe did help my karmic debts?
Then i married a bad shiela another stupid move:)
and nothing worked for me those 15 years!
Bad car accident in 1975, head on, naked girl crushed to death in other car the guy had 2 broken arms 2 broken legs. Wife stealing cousin Wayne my nemesis:)
was driving my car? and stepped out and caused the accident. Wayne and I knocked out the windscreen of my car on impact. I had arm full of glass from protecting my eyes with elbow over my nose, broke my collarbone holding the front seat and put a u turn bend in the seat. Broke leg bone broke 3 toes too.
Cuz kidnapped me semiconcious from Nambour hospital, the Cast on my leg  annoyed me so I cut it off with a tin opener. Brother Mark took me to Kullinjah Station my dads property, so 4 days after the accident I tried some hard work fencing.
Pick up the right hand with the left put it on the hand drill, uses left hand to drill holes in the post.
(break)  FRIED SCONES............quick bread replacement in the 1930s
Dissolved fat (or cooking oil) ¼ inch deep in frying pan fairly hot... not burning...
Flour baking soda cream of tartar... OR cup selfraising flour drop of milk or water ...
mix fairly firm cook in the fat and turn often till cooked ....
Fried scones were eaten with an application of fat and syrup mixed together on them .....nice...
Banana fritters
Soft nanas ok too....
For one .... 1 cup s/r flour 1 small banana 1 egg one tablespoon sugar mix till firm and add banana
chunks. Cook in fat till cooked well turning often ...burnt is nice...(.these are usually soft)
Same for corn meat fritters.... 1 cup s/r flour 1 egg add onion & tomato as well for taste.......great

Jonny cakes were a drier mix... dip each one in flour and drop on the wood stove or hot shovel
turn often till cooked
Damper used sr flour milk salt .mixed till semi firm ..Scones too
Brownie was a Damper which had raisins or sultanas plus tablespoon of sugar to make it sweet.

we all seem to suffer yet again, again,

but worst of all is the lonesome plane,

we want you well and free of pain,

sweet Carolyn arising,

well again...

our wanted horizon,

bring courage within the flame...

by illness cauterising...

Don (quixote)

What i would like to see is soupers thoughts on Carolyn 

getting well and turning this blockage of spirit away from her.

We should ask for her perfect health as one united group.!

thank you loving soup family.

    I hope that you feel better, Carolyn! I know, I know, sometimes it sure seems rough, but one never knows if something is beatable or not in the end.

    Thank you for your encouragement and support, Don. I appreciate all your prayers. I don't expect my neuropathy to heal, but I recently injured my back lifting a heavy new computer. My doc wants me to spend my time in bed, but people who live alone can't do that. Thanks to all the Soupers for their prayers and a special thanks to you, Don. Love, Carolyn
