With Dark Red Wine and Fresh Chuck Meat!
Check your refrigerator, wine cellar and pantry for the following ingredients:
- One bone-in arm chuck roast, a pricier cut of beef, or short ribs
- 2 T. of your favorite seasoning blend . . . thyme, sage, basil, tarragon, paprika, etc.
- 4 T. olive or safflower oil
- 3 c. mixed celery, carrots, leeks, shallots etc.
- Whole onions (however many you wish to eat)
- Potatoes (Yukon, Red, and Idaho Russet are our favorites)
- 5 garlic cloves, sliced thin
- Allspice if you’d like a taste of Greek food
- 1 c. canned tomato puree
- 3 bay leaves
- 1 t. peppercorns
- 1-1/2 c. beef stock
- ½ c. Port Wine
- 1 c. Merlot (you may use Cab, Syrah, or Pinot if you opened it within 3 days)
Set aside a large oven-tempered roasting pan, be it glass or metal. No china or plastics, please. It is best to choose a pan with a top cover particularly if there is not enough aluminum foil available in the kitchen..
Get a skillet over high heat and add several drops of oil. Brown the meat on both sides. This is important to contain the beef’s natural juices. Don’t use a top because you need to closely watch the searing process to avoid deep blackening. Add salt unless the seniors coming to dinner are on a low sodium diet. Remove meat from the frying pan when this beef searing operation is finished. Sauté the vegetables until glassy-looking, remove and reserve for later. Don’t overcook. Add the garlic, herbs, and spices to the pan, cooking until nicely colored. Add the wines and tomato. Reduce liquids by half at a boil. Add the beef stock. You might bring it almost to a boil so the bottom of the pan does not scorch or just throw it in the oven after taking the next step.
Add vegetables to pot. Add the meat back to the pan. The top of the roast should “crown” out of the braising liquid. Place a 5-inch square of foil or the pan’s cover over the exposed meat. Place the pan in a 325-degree oven and cook for 2 hours on a slow bake.
You may double this baking time if you wish; keep forking the roast once and awhile until it is at your desired level of tenderness. This step is optional: Remove meat and vegetables from pan. Place the baking pan on the stovetop, bring liquids to a simmer, and reduce by a third to thicken. Season and serve the gravy along side with the meat and vegetables. It is all gravy!

Hadn’t had a hit all morning
It is true; I haven’t had a hit all day.
St. Mateo, pray for us.
It is a day to be on time in St. Palo.
You’ve probably heard very little about Saint Palo Alto the patron saint of Stanford University. Seems like ol’ Mrs. Leland Stanford moonlighted with her Presbyterian church in Menlo Park.
It may be best to be back among the brethren to living in the present. Remember, don’t space it out. Got the women waiting. Time to reveal all. Please try to be modest, sexy, hot, discrete, and understandable.
9:29 a.m. and all is a little blurred suddenly at this moment.
Good thing that I took a hit before leaving the train depot. Some sort of Sativa lozenge… honey-lemon they call it. Very tasty, fruitful, with a pleasant grassy taste.
The plan is simple. Heal thyself by the grace of God.
Take energy in an efficient way and rechannel that into the plan. Use 10% of brain cells to manage the execution.
Upon arrival at St. Palo we stumbled into the esteemed Opportunity Center for the Homeless. No way to see a counselor, so staff urged me to hangout and wait for something or other to happen; waste time.
Not to be deterred, I rambled out the door toward the ladies’ medical office. Time. OK. On time.
But this living in the past, rather than in thee moment, is mindblowing. Even if my consciousness was not too stoned, maybe I would not be so concerned and perhaps very, very, worried.
Safety pins have countless uses.
- Many people have good luck charms.
- Many folks believe not being part of an accident or getting ill is merely a matter of luck.
I do not buy that reasoning but I am carrying a lucky charm in my left pocket.
Three days in-a-row I had walked past this safety pin lying in the sand. Last Sunday after mass at St. Bruno, I decided to pick it up and pocket it.
Well since that moment I have been safe, free of sickness, and I have not even cut myself shaving.
The safety pin can be used by everyone as a reminder to stay in safe situations
and take action for others’ welfare and our own individual safety.

Almsgiving the Franciscan Way in Reno . . . outside Moscow . . . in East Los Angeles . . . on Sanibel Island
Dateline: North America
Lenten Tuesday, March 3, 2015
Thanks to the clergy at St. Thomas Aquinas parish, the Bishop Cano of Reno (great homily last Sunday!), and some new homeless friends and gamblers, I am learning more about offering sincere alms for the poor.
Also important is how alms are distributed. More about that later . . .
Friar Father Joshua and I spoke for the first time since he blessed me off on my way from Reno to Palo Alto last January, during a donut hour after the 10 o’clock hour Mass this past Sunday. Friar Father Tom gave one of the best sermons I have heard and seen and felt all year, too!
You should help us here in the Synod of Reno, NOW.
Please wire sufficient funds:
. . . if you care to, please wire money to either:
- via MoneyGram (c/o , Save Mart or Raley’s Nevada)
(David A. Dailey’s cell phone at (312) 237-0386) I could pick your donation-contribution-loan up anytime between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. PST.
- or via Western Union
I have been living since Wednesday (2/12/2015) on the streets and have no cash to pay for medicine or travel back to the Bay Area or Colorado for doctor’s appointments. Incidentally, I was informed by the County of Douglas Sheriff deputy [February 18th, our 12th day in town] that being or appearing “homeless” in this town or around Lake Tahoe is a crime punishable by monetary fine, court costs, and imprisonment.
Then I was dumped off in Reno a week ago Friday night by the Douglas County Department of Social Services after one of 17 Sheriff Department deputies I met during my two weeks there told me to leave town.Oh, God bless us and God bless America!
Thanks be to our Savior Jesus Christ and the mercies and grace that is available! Amen.
- Then, if you would please advise us of the transaction /confirmation number and special question answer to me, via e-mail so I can get a working phone line, etc.

Love Our Children / Teach Your Children Well / Make the World a Better Place for Our Kids (other cliches and realities)
I was just telling my new best friend about how PROUD we should genuinely be about our children, even the adopted ones and wicked-behaving step-kids.
Today, being Ash Wednesday – following Stove Tuesday, popularly known as “Marti Gras” – I told this man how PROUD I am about my daughter’s trip to New Orleans – “Nawlins” – during the pre-Lenten season.
I remain proud that MY daughter scored the most plentiful and colorful set of beads that I have ever seen one person collect… and I have been following Marti Graz Parades in Nawlins for five decades.
Yes, I am a proud father.
I trust you too love your sons and daughters almost as much I love mine.

The Saga of “The Last Resort” Continues Past the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre on the Gardenville (Nevada) Main Street
Barf — feeling sick in Gardnerville Ranchos, Nevada.
I is go figuring . . .
Oh well, dog gone it, another sleepless night in this high desert of intellectual thought, good nutrition, quality medical care, and a viable safety-net.
My gut is severely spasming, during the last six hours, I have visited with two paramedics of the East Fork Fire Protection District in Douglas County, Nevada, two sheriff deputies (1st at about 1400 hrs on 2-14-15 and another great deputy about 0200hrs. on 2-15-15), as well as the entire security staff on-duty at the Carson Valley Inn in Minden, Nevada, and some other so-called ER support staff at the only “medical center” in this small metropolitan area located about 15 miles east o…f godly beautiful Lake Tahoe and the Mont Bleu Casino & Resort, Lake Tahoe, CA.
Well, the bottom line is that this environment of health care is REALLY killing me. Even the Gardenville, Northern Nevada, Walgreen’s near Lamke Park and the new County Senior and Community center seems to be conspiring to kill me off.
Allow me to give you two for-instances:
Last Tuesday and on Friday the 13th, Dearest Anni and I went to the local daily Senior Luncheon. Both meals were disgusting to me – imagine how many ol’ folks ate what was served them by volunteers. Say there may have been 200 of us seated in the room; Anni’s 80-something Mom was served next to last [and then take into consideration that Mom lost another daughter who passed on February 3rd in a so-called healthcare center near Phoenix, Arizona]. The glaze on the heated canned ham and pineapple tidbits was disgusting; but we were so hungry after waiting for more than 30 minutes when the first senior was served.
Add to this predicktament of that the popularity of seniors enjoying soup… both days the kitchen RAN OUT before all paid customers were served.
Now how hard is it to heat up a couple more cans of soup?!?
The death rate is already WAY OVER the national average. Yet, the locals – over 95% of adults interviewed during the last 11 days – seem to think everything is peachy-keen here. I believe this is the reason folks sell their houses to so-called qualified bidders with bloody pre-qualification letters from so-called reputable mortgage bankers/loan ‘sharks’ licensed by the former Silver State of Nevada. Anywho, so what if I could buy a nice home for less than $220,ooo.00!?!
Why would I want to try to live here when more people are fooled into dying here….
