My Letter to Sheriff Michael J. DeLeo Lebanon County Pennsylvania January 31, 2013 concerning his Oath of Office


Dear Sheriff Michael J. DeLeo as the Chief Law Enforcement Officer in Lebanon County Pennsylvania you were required to take an oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution against all enemies both foreign and domestic. Having taken that oath I would like to know if you will honor your oath by refusing to enforce Federal rules, regulations and directives that violate the Constitution and/or the Bill of Rights.

The Second Amendment clearly proclaims that the people have a right to own guns and in the Bill of Rights, the government is prohibited from infringing on the right of the people to own guns if they choose to do so.

Your primary job is to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution and the rights of the people that live in Lebanon County Pennsylvania. The Supreme Court has ruled that the Federal government has no lawful jurisdiction in the counties and that when a Sheriff chooses to enforce an unconstitutional directive, he is violating his Constitutional Oath.

The people of Lebanon County are the employer and you are the employee and we expect you to represent us and not the Federal government. As your employer, I would like to know if you are given an order that violates the Constitution, will you honor your oath or will you do as directed by the President of the United States.

Sincerely, Melissa Lynne Kirst

See how this goes. I was kinda afraid to send it after reading that book by Michelle Gooden – Unsolved Murder of Peggy Reber … but, I did.

Hope someone makes a note.



From Scratch: Shoo Fly Pie Recipe

I’m baking again. Ha All kinds of pies I made last night and couple today too. It’s better than air freshener any day !!

This here recipe is simple, easy and always turns out great. I have never made this Shoo Fly Pie and it didn’t turn out perfect. It’s a thick and hardy type pie. YUM !!

Home Made Shoo Fly Pie

Home Made Shoo Fly Pie

Shoo Fly Pie

1 cup flour

2 Tablespoons soften butter

3/4 cup dark brown sugar

Mix that all up in a bowl. I use a fork because it cuts the butter into the mixture better. Mix till all looks even. Should see tiny clumps of butter not big globs.

Scoop 1 cup of that mixture and save for topping.

In the same bowl with the remaining flour mixture add :

1 egg

1/2 cup molasses

1/2 cup King Syrup

3/4 cup hot water

Don’t mix it up yet. In another small dish add 1/4 cup hot water and 1 teaspoon baking soda – mix till dissolved and then add it to the bowl.

Now you can mix it well.

Pour into pie crust. Sprinkle on top the 1 cup of saved flour mixture. I like to not sprinkle so close to the edges because while baking the edges without the sprinkle crisp up some, then the pie is perfect for cutting warm. I like a warm Shoo Fly Pie in the cooler months of the year.

OK now for the baking. Preheat the oven to 400. For the first 10 minutes of baking you want the pie to set .. so bake for 10 minutes @ 400. Then turn down to 350. and bake additional 35 minutes. Approx.

I make my own pie crusts a day in advance because their easier to roll I think. If you make your own pie crust, roll thin. You don’t want an apple pie crust on a Shoo Fly Pie.

Pastry Pie Shell Recipe

1- 1/4 cup flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup butter (cold and chopped into small pieces)

1/4 cup cold water

Combine flour and salt in big bowl.

Add butter pieces until mixture looks like crumbles.

Stir in water a tablespoon at a time, until a ball forms.

Wrap in plastic and refrigerate a couple hours.


What kind of Plant or Tree is this ? Could it be a Lemon Tree ?

What kind of plant or tree is this ?

What kind of plant or tree is this ?

About 5 years ago I planted a whole slew of seeds in small containers in the bathroom for on the windowsill. I had no idea really what the seeds were because I got them all mixed up, so I just planted all the seeds together and left them there till I seen something growing. lol

The container was on that windowsill for 2 years with me just watering every now and again. When I finally decided to throw the container away – as I was dumping the container – I seen two of the seeds sprouted below the surface so I replanted them in their own containers and kept them in the bathroom.

This past spring I put them outside for the season and they grew very well. I brought them back in the house now and will put them back in the bathroom.

But I have no idea what these two plants or trees are. Can someone tell me please what this plant or tree is ?

I’m thinking maybe a Lemon Tree but I honestly have no idea. Thanks.

Here are more pictures.

Unknown tree like Plant (lol)

These two tree like plants also have spikes on the base stem or trunk. I think they are a semi woody tree type because the trunks  down toward the bottom resemble that of a semi woody tree or shrub similar to the Brugmansia.

Susquehanna River Flathead Catfish – how to fillet a catfish


Flathead Catfish

Flathead Catfish

This morning about 4:30am I got a text from Chris asking if I wanted catfish that he and Wayne went night fishing on the Susquehanna River. My first text back was no, simply because, it’s not worth the mess in my kitchen with only a few catfish. Last time he and Wayne brought me catfish there was 4 fish all under 22″, to me, that isn’t worth the effort although I appreciated what they did bring me.

Then, I got another text about 5:30am asking me again this time with a picture. LOL (these guys are learning I tell ya)

I knew right away these catfish were alot bigger than last time and a bunch more to boot. So I text back saying ok bring them over. Glad I did.

Total there was 3 catfish – 32″ , 3 catfish – 34″ ,  2 catfish – 21″ and 1 catfish – 31″ all fillet up real nice and clean. I do wish I had a scale though to weigh some of those suckers .. or even to weigh the total fillets after finished. Darn it. (I was to lazy to use the bathroom scale – lol)

Flathead Catfish

I think catfish are easy to fillet because they lay flat (that’s prolly how they get their name Flathead catfish – lol – joking) But they are alot easier than say like brown trout, bass and salmon. I fillet alot of fish from these two guys, now that I think about it. Ha Ha

To fillet fish is simple really, just makes a mess in your kitchen. The hardest and most time consuming is getting the fish on and off the cutting board. To fillet the fish is fast.

I run my finger down the back (on the right) of the catfish head till I feel muscle, then poke my knife tip in till I hit bone. Slice threw the skin all the way to about the last inch or so before the tail fin keeping pressure on the knife against the spine. Use your thumb in the slit to feel around and guide your other hand working the knife.

Then, below the back of the head (where I put the knife tip in) cut downward on an angle till you hit the ribs. Should look like a loose triangle shaped hunk of meat. Don’t cut it off – take the knife tip and (starting at the spine area) lightly slide threw the meat to ribcage all the way down – you want the knife tip to slide between the red meat (ribcage) and the white meat. The red meat you don’t want from a catfish because it stores all the bad stuff from the water.

Flathead Catfish

Leave the skin attached just fillet the white meat off the skin. I like this way, especially on a big catfish – the size of the catfish keeps the fish from sliding around. (on a wooden cutting board) White meat should be one piece when finished.

That’s it,  repeat for the other side and any remaining fishes.

TIP: The ribcage doesn’t go back to the tail (duh – lol) so when you get to the back of the ribcage – put your thumb against the ribcage moving it back toward the fin following the knife in your other hand – you can feel where you need to put your knife to continue the bottom 1/2 of the tail area. Doing this will keep the meat in 1 piece instead of two.
Fresh catfish for dinner tonight !!!

Presidential Canna Lily – first blooms (Ron Paul 2012) Ha Ha

Presidential Canna Lily

Presidential Canna Lily

While I was out in the yard early this afternoon snooping around all the new growth, I took pictures  of my new blooms.

This here flower above is a Presidential Canna, grows 7-8 feet tall and has huge green leaves. (this picture is missing a Ron Paul sign, I know .. Ha Ha) When the Canna’s in the back bloom I’ll get a picture .. that picture will have the Ron Paul sign in the backround.

I really like these plants because every morning they water themselves and everything else around them. The dew collects on the leaves like you wouldn’t believe and for the first hours of early morning the water just drips off them.

I have these plants everywhere because they water alot of the other plants every morning. The only down side about the Canna is I must dig them up every year before frost. When I dig them up, there is 3 times as much as I put in the ground … I give alot away to neighbors and anyone who wants some. LOL

Below is a picture of some Presidential Canna’s and in the back ground you can see one of the straggler tomato plants I was talking about in a previous post. Those Stragglers just show up is some of the strangest places. This straggler is growing pretty good it’s already well above the fence. No tomatoes yet though.

I have a yellow Trumpet Vine also, this vine plant has been blooming for weeks now – I figure I take a picture anyhows. In the evenings I like to sit out and drink a cup of coffee or tea and watch the hummingbirds. I have 2 that pal around and show up once in a while. I still like to sit out and wait to see if they show up. I do have one of those hummingbird feeders in another area of the back yard, but, I’ve never seen a hummingbird at it – they love these Trumpet Vine flowers though.
