TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES!!!

MY EIGHT YEAR OLD COMPUTER DIED OF TOO MUCH INFORMATION!  IT SURVIVED THE
MANY CHRISTMAS, THANKSGIVING,AND GRADUATION PARTY PLANNING.  THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE NIGHTINGALE HOUSE AND THE WONDERFUL WEDDING FOR SARA AND ROSS. 



MURPHY'S LAW:  
COMPUTER DIES DURING CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS! 
GOT NEW I-MAC AND HAD NO IDEA HOW TO SURF BACK AND FORTH.   COULDN'T FIND MY PICTURES OR DOCUMENTS WERE THEY  IN WINDOWS OR MAC ??  I'M LOST!!!!


DROPPED CAMERA ON LENS !!!  DEAD CAMERA IN THE MIDDLE OF OPENING GIFTS ON CHRISTMAS MORNING!!!   NEED A NEW ONE!  DECIDED TO WAIT UNTIL TUESDAY AFTER CHRISTMAS TO BRAVE BEST BUY CROWDS.


PLEASE FORGIVE ME FOR NOT POSTING TAMALES RECIPES!!!

I RECEIVED MY COPY OF TAMALES, COMADRES, AND THE MEANING OF CIVILIZATION.     IT IS DELIGHTFUL!!!!  FILLED WITH HISTORY, ANECDOTES, RECIPES,
EVEN ECONOMICS LESSONS.
                     
                                        TA-MAL ECONOMICS
"When I was little I could tell if things for my family taban mal:  a fat-jowled pig's head on the
table ready for boiling meant we weren't having tamales de fifoles for Crismas."


excerpt from Tamales Comadres, and the Meaning of Civilization- Juan Rodriguez




FOUND BOOK AT LAS TRES REBECCAS  STORE IN SAN ANTONIO.  I'LL SHARE THEIR RECIPE FOR HEALTHY TAMALES AND ANSWER THE MIND BOGGLING QUESTIONS:
  1. TO TIE OR NOT TO TIE, THAT IS THE QUESTION...
  2. SPOON, SPREADER, OR SPATULA...
  3. LARD OR OIL...
