Denver Meetup: Fun, Food and a Few Surprises

Despite a bit of a mix-up on where we would have dinner (our first choice was closed), we rallied and ended up just down the road. Green balloons and all.

Eleven of us attended, with several more who could not make it. But I think we had such a good time, I’m am positive we will do it again. Maybe even a potluck at my house (oh, don’t hold me to that…)

I’ll let everyone identify themselves as they will. Three of us are missing – me, Czanne and a friend of mine who tagged along. She had enough fun she’s already thinking up her Balloon-Juice handle, but was camera shy.

This was more fun than I can detail here – good conversation, good food and terrific people – each and everyone of them. And these folks are very, very intelligent and I could have listened to their stories for several more hours.

Surprises?  Two of us are (unbeknownst before dinner) literally next door neighbors, one of us speaks Mandarin, one of us has met DougJ,  lots of military service (Go Navy!) and I’m actually a 75 year old dude named Kevin. [[One of these is not true.]]

Thanks to Scamp Dog for handling all the details!!

Consider this your evening open thread.  What’s going on tonight, anything fun?

P.S. Someone at that table owes me a bread recipe and I owe someone a whole wheat biscuit recipe. ;-)  email me and we’ll exchange those details.  whats4dinnersolutions at live dot com

    Somebody owes you a bread recipe? How about this:

    (I use organic all-purpose flour and purified water)

    Sourdough starter:
    Take 5oz of old starter. Add 2 oz flour and 3oz water. Stir to combine. Rest covered at room temperature for 4 hours. Add 4oz flour and 6oz water. Stir to combine. Rest covered at room temperature. Use after 10-16 hours.

    Sourdough:
    12oz sourdough starter
    2lbs 2oz flour
    1lb 2oz water
    3/4oz (approx 1 tbsp) sea salt

    Stir together, then knead until it’s completely homogeneous. Alternatively, mix in a stand mixer using the dough hook until it cleans the side of the bowl. In either method, place in an oiled bowl, cover, and allow it to rise at room temperature until doubled, approximately 4-6 hours. ETA: reserve 5oz starter for the next batch. You can store it refrigerated for several weeks without problems.

    Knead the dough gently to deflate it, then divide into two loaves. Place the loaves in baskets lined with well floured cloths. Allow to proof for 1 hour at room temperature, then retard for 8-16 hours in the refrigerator.

    Place a baking stone, baking steel, or (if pressed) a large cookie sheet in the oven on a rack placed just below the center. Put a large disposable pie tin full of water on a lower rack. Preheat to 450°F for 1 hour. Turn the loaves individually onto a well floured baking peel, slash the tops, and place in the oven. Bake for 40 minutes. Remove and cool before slicing.

    Had a fab long weekend in Denver this July. Amazing how it’s growing. Found some great eateries too. El Five was our favorite with such great views and the bar next door with the motor home on the roof (BarV) was a cute touch.

    @CaseyL:
    We had name tags at one of the LA area meetups that had space for a real name and a blog handle. Much easier for those of us who use our real names as our handles.

Will keep you informed — I also seem to be committed to making a visit to Toronto, Ottawa, and the Georgia Bay of Ontario next spring, so will have to see what works for other road trips. But I would love to come to Colorado and spend a bit of time.

    I am traveling India, vicariously by watching the title song of Aamir’s Khan’s old talk show. He traveled the length and breadth of India
    Satyameva jayate (Truth Alone Triumphs), which is India’s motto, one of Gandhi’s favorite slogans from the pre Independence era. Something I want to do myself. There is so much I haven’t seen yet.

    Funny story I don’t think I shared with you when it happened – one of those people came up to Bixby and me while we were walking around our favorite ponds (just before Bailey joined us – so a year or so ago) and asked me if that was indeed Bixby – and identified herself as a BJ member . I later told Bixby he was famous. LOL

    @Baud: Thanks! Aamir Khan is one of three Khans (Salman and Shahrukh are the other two) that have dominated the Hindi film industry for the last 30 or so years. I was a fan since his first movie, I had a massive crush on the young Aamir, when I was growing up.

    Just got an unsolicited, but exciting, business opportunity email from Supreme Executive Logistics Board presenting me with an outstanding logistics opportunity to supply mass quantities of materiel for Trump’s expanded Iraq and Afghanistan military operations.

    The salutation was ‘Hello Dear,’, so I think they like me. My ship is coming in! After I get rich off this thing, I’m buying all the BJ commenters a big dinner.

    Now I have to go dig up some info they want to process my bid, which they say I can more or less make up, they will fill in the details. I can’t talk any more about it, ‘utmost discretion’ is advised.

    @TaMara (HFG):

    We succeeded in taking that picture, and, if you look at it, you see a dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever lived, lived out their lives. The aggregate of all our joys and sufferings, thousands of confident religions, ideologies and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilizations, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every hopeful child, every mother and father, every inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every superstar, every supreme leader, every saint and sinner in the history of our species, lived there – on a mote of dust, suspended in a sunbeam.

    The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that in glory and in triumph they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of the dot on scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner of the dot. How frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds. Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe, are challenged by this point of pale light.

    […] To my mind, there is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly and compassionately with one another and to preserve and cherish that pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known.

    He is an incredible man. Anyone who has the privilege of being in his presence leaves the encounter as a better person. JL just has that transformative effect on people. I am thrilled for you that you met him.

    My wife’s parents go to a Presbyterian church where a congressman from Michigan named Fred Upton goes. They have a thing a few times a year with random & variegated bigwigs who come and talk about how their faith influences their work. Upton and Lewis came into Congress together in 1986, and they’re good friends, so they were on the hot seats this evening. After it was over, I went up and shook his hand and thanked him for, well, everything he’s ever done, pretty much.

    3/ Due to the supremacy clause of the constitution, Congress and Trump
    could try to undo a state constitutional right without an amendment.

    4/ Can you imagine working your whole life for a pension you thought was guaranteed and then have it reduced after retirement?

    Getting home and eating dinner helped a little. I was commenting today about how much ADHD sucks because it means that stupid things that everyone else finds to be simple are really fucking hard all of the goddamned time and I think that made my mood go south. Ugh.

    Plus my sprained knee hurts, and I’m pissed at myself for spraining it in the first place, and I misplaced my asthma medication and only just found it, so I think I’m slightly oxygen-deprived. Gah. At least I have some Halloween candy to eat.

I suspect that there may have been some further fermentation – maybe a bad cork – that is releasing gases. Pop the cork and smell it. Give the wine itself at smell and a little taste. If it is okay, it will smell and taste like wine. If not, it will smell off – you don’t to be an expert to notice off.

Mr Khan heard the same thing I did from Kelly’s reference to “the convention last summer”, an implication that the Khans somehow sullied their status as gold star parent, and he elegantly told Kelly to go fuck himself and the Rough Beast he rode in on.

    @NotMax: Sorry I didn’t read all 27 options in your third link. Why, yes, from now on I will keep corked bottles in case I have a stain. No one does that.

    @Steve in the ATL: You should! It would lead to an interesting moment, I’ll bet. OTOH, I wasn’t the one stating Hillary’s determination to go to war with Russia and bringing up Greenwald and Snowden.

    @NotMax: Don’t ask humans to to live by your weird ass rules. Many of us are willing to use the reply button rather than typing the code out. If you choose to go another way, fine. But don’t try to mock me about posting style.

    @Major Major Major Major: I am normally kind of emo and tend to want to give so much context that I get lost in my own story, so I find directness and clarity quite effective and powerful when I remember to go that route.

    No idea what you’re on about other than knee jerk contrarianism. Haven’t asked you or anyone else anything.

    @Kathleen: from Tamara’s post up top:

    Three of us are missing – me, Czanne and a friend of mine who tagged along. She had enough fun she’s already thinking up her Balloon-Juice handle, but was camera shy.
