The Islander Newspaper January 30, 1987 My mother always told me that if you couldnt say something nice about someone not to say anything at all. Ive been trying to apply this wise advice to January. Who could say anything nice about January? Possibly the New York Giants, germs, doctors and pharmacists might enjoy January. pneumonia, strep throat, and sinus germs. Mostly, they lie around not attacking anyone all year long. But just wait for January. They come out in full force and make about 80 percent of the population miserable. The miserable folks go to the doctor, who sends the miserable folks to the pharmacist, armed with expensive prescriptions. The medics probably love January. Woodcutters, power companies, snow plow manufacturers and L. L. Bean must be big fans of the month of January, too. Personally, I will go to any lengths to stay warm. I turn the thermostat winter coats. So far this January, Ive bought 300 gallons of bottled no coats. I have a twenty-twoyear-old Pendleton wool cape, a three-year-old stadium coat which makes me look like the Michelin man, and a London Fog with a removable lining. Fuel is quickly consumed, but ugly old coats go on forever unless some smart lunch on a hot summer day. So, I dont buy coats very often. January always brings a rash of disasters. It was just a year ago that TV viewers all over the world were shocked at the sight of The Challenger explosion. Fire breaks out. Blizzards cause tragedies. In states like Florida, audacity to fall, we wade around in ice cold rain storms and run into each others automobiles because our tires slip and slide on the wet roadways. In my opinion, January is an accident all by itself. It stands alone as the one month that contains the most misery. Like, box in January? Love notes from the IRS. Copies of W-2 forms which add up all the astronomical amounts the government has taken from your pay check all year. Copies of interest you paid on your mortgage, credit cards, and loans. That opens your eyes, too, when you see all 12 from Christmas overspending. Thank you notes from people who would rather not have written them. For many years, I have conducted a campaign to wipe out January. My efforts have never been successful. Somehow, in month, January always wins.

Jim Dumbacher lived a wonderful life and will be remembered by his son Jon, sisters Margie and Teresa, and loving mother Margaret. Jim was returned to the Familys home in Kentucky for burial.

Jim Moose Brown has quite a following on Pensacola Beach since he is one of the very talented performers at the Pensacola Beach Songwriters Festival The Trivia Master got no surprises. Parrotheads think Buffet penned the line. Nope. Correct, but not quick enough, Angeli McMillan, who remains shirtless, wrote, Jim "Moose" Brown and Don Rollins wrote the song so famously crooned by King Parrothead himself Jimmy Buffett. I know country dude Alan Jackson gets credit for the song but I dont do country and Buffetts about as close to cross-over country as Ill get. Frozen Jersey Girl Gwen Foster accused the Trivia Master of trickery. Trivia! I know this one. I know Jimmy Buffett wrote and sang the song Its 5 O'clock Somewhere. But now I'm thinking this must be a trick question. Then, in a who-wants-to-bea-millionaire type turn-about, answer. In a second attempt, she remembered Moose Brown, redeeming herself and declaring million dollars, nor shirt, Jersey. Big Bob Dority stumbled in to Margaritaville and blew out his this. Have another cold one, Bob. Jeff McCain must be an Alan Jackson fan. He gave him credit for the song. Good singer, but no shirt for Jeff either. The Roundtable Knights and Ladies were tapping a keg, humming the Brown and Rollins classic. Sir Morrie, who is not easy to stump, was right on target. A correct answer came from the top Wooly Booger, Queen Shugah Jayne Redmond, who bemoans the fact that she did not get her Island Times quickly enough to clobber the competition. The Trivia Master is ready to roll with a new question. Queen Jayne is also the Parade Wreck. She marshals the parade which lines up at Avenida 10 and rolls to the Gulfside Pavilion. That was not always the route. What was the Krewe of Wrecks parade route in 1981? The correctly answer this will get a parade-ready Island Times shirt.

It was a wonderful way to kick-off the Mardi Gras season. Thanks also go to Renee Mack and her staff of hard-working, dedicated employees. Our Queens Brunch is always delectable and the perfect way to celebrate the end of the Queens reign. It is one very long day for us Mermaids. I was actually the last Mermaid standing; for a very short moment anyway. I stood up (still at Paradise) to make that proclamation then promptly tripped on fell down. I really do have great timing, dont you think? Big Congratulations to our new Royalty, Queen Peggy Henshall and King Nasty John Thomas. They are in for a very exciting and adventurous royal ride this year and they have certainly earned it. Peggy is the owner of Cajun Stitchery and has been a member of the Mystic Krewe of Nereids for many years. She, along with Elaine Mitchell, Charlotte Spencer, Ella Hess and other helpers, is the cocreator and master seamstress for our beautiful costumes. Loving, kind spirits Peggy and John, are infamous for spreading contagious laughter, a ton of fun, smiles and tremendous joy among the islanders; not just during Mardi Gras season. They welcome everyone to join them celebrating the joy of our unique love for life, community and each other regardless of the season. I had to giggle over The Lizzards Tongue in the last edition concerning Lizs return to the Beach and her re-awakening of the tremendous number of costumes needed in Paradise. I use that term because she had a full costume closet when she left this Island! (Ill never understand why people in other areas dont costume as much we do here living our fantasy lives.) I have also personally witnessed her in more than one costume. I havent had a closet separate from costumes in many, many years. I must congratulate the very Gwen Gibson crowned on January 10. The SOBs are all so proud of you. I can hardly wait for next years celebration. My heart swells with pride and love. A big thanks to the Waters sisters; especially Liz for hosting us. The Nereids combined our Bead Trip to Mobile with a late Krewe Christmas Party. I am amazed we have such incredible lives that we had to postpone Christmas! Well, that and the New York City trip, combined anyway. All three of these events are stories for another day. But Marilyn LeNormand is always the uber hostess in Mobile and we all look forward to going. I mentioned the new Mardi Gras business in Pensacola and got a big frown from Marilyn. It was not about the business of course, she was afraid we wouldnt want to come to her house anymore! What? That has the same possibility of happening as one of us saying we dont like something prepared by our Royal Chef Elaine Mitchell. Impossible! We have and will continue to makeup an excuse to go if necessary. Im sure there are lots of you who already have your costumes ready. Well, good for you. I always work best under pressure, or is it I do my best work under pressure? Whichever it is, Im under it and the pressures on! Gotta get my Nauga High my character for the Krewe of Wrecks Ball. In the meantime, we have to eat. This weeks recipe is great for breakfast when served with eggs, grits or whatever you choose. After the bread is cooked (leaving out the onions) you can also soak it in beaten eggs and seasonings to make French Toast, baking again in the oven until set. Its also good as a snack or with soup if you love bread as much as I do. You can make it ahead and freeze it; then slightly thaw, slice and heat. Or thaw the whole loaf and reheat. Lots of possibilities exist with this recipe (substituting sausage or ham for bacon or different cheeses). Anyway, lets cookBacon & Cheese Quick Bread 3 Tbsp. butter plus more for greasing 2 Med. Onions, chopped Lb. bacon (approx. 10 slices) do not substitute with self1 Tbsp. baking powder 2 Tsp. salt 1 Cup whole milk 1/3 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil 1 Egg 2 Cups Sharp Cheddar Cheese, shredded Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9 x 5 loaf pan (or 4 mini pans) with butter. Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat, then add onions and cook until deep golden brown and caramelized, stirring occasionally (approx. 30 min.). Set aside to cool. Meanwhile cook bacon in large skillet, microwave or oven until crisp. (Bacon curls less or change temp. control to broil to cook both sides.) When bacon is crisp, remove to paper towel (or clean newspaper) to drain. Let cool, then chop. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, salt and baking powder. In another bowl whisk together milk, oil and egg. ture, mixing just until combined. Gently fold in cheese, bacon and onions just until combined, then transfer to prepared pan. Bake until golden brown and toothpick inserted in center is clean. Large pan cook 45 minutes; or 25 minutes for smaller loaves. Enjoy, dont forget to share and join the Krewe of Wrecks. Youll be glad you did! See ya in the kitchen

A: There are several causes for the dreaded blue screen on computers using Microsoft Windows. The blue screen is usually a screen full of white text on a blue background. The most important information about the line of text on the blue screen. The rest of the information on the screen wont mean much to anyone. That kind of failure happens when the Windows program is damaged or when a hardware component in the computer is damaged. Hardware causes include the video, memory (RAM), and the hard disk (where everything is stored). If the computer can be restarted successfully in the diagnostic mode (commonly known as Safe Mode), the problem is most likely with the software. If the computer will not completely start up in diagnostic mode, the problem is more likely to be in the hardware. Taking the scientific apsee if the hard disk is good. The hard disk can be removed and tested separately. The memory chips can also be replaced to see if that will solve the problem. disk is responsible for the problem, a new disk can be installed. Afterwards, the Windows software will have to be installed again. Your data from the old hard disk can sometimes be retrieved and put on the new hard disk. Do not assume that everything is lost just because the computer will not start. But, when you see a Blue Screen, it would be great if youve been diligent If the hardware passes all the tests, then the focus would shift to the Windows program itself. Sometimes a disk scan will take care of that. The disk scan makes sure that all the files needed during startup are intact. Also, restoring the computer software to an earlier point in time might the Windows CD will be needed to repair the entire Windows program. This article was provided by The Stukey Group.

One of the things that I hear the most from visitors when they ask about or come to Pensacola Beach Community Church is are you non-denominational? The answer is that we are United Church of Christ which is sort of on the other side of non-denominational, because we are multidenominational. We respect all people that come in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ. What I think we always want to be on the beach is a witness of Gods love. When we allow ourselves to be witnessed by another, we cannot help but be transformed by the experience. Whether we are sharing a personal experience, standing in front of friends to celebrate a special occasion, or expressing our unbridled joy or sorrow in front of a loved one, we are allowing ourselves to be seen and experienced in a very intimate way. It is our intent to share the joy and grace with everyone. The idea of our congregation is to be a welcoming presence of Jesus Christ in this wonderful beach community. We have so many opportunities to share ourselves that it opens the door to be more than a church but a community of believers. I always tell our visitors as they come through our doors they are at home and it is now their church. Anyone who has ever seen love, admiration, acceptance, or appreciation that is in Christ will know how transformative that experience can be. It is the glory of God to be able to bare ourselves to another by the love of Christ, it is our desire to give the gift of grace and show each person they also matter. In letting ourselves be witnessed, we are letting others into that intimate space, stepping in the sacred container of the One who has created us, and creating a support, love, and goodwill of God that will stay with each person forever. What a wonderful journey we have together on this part of Gods creation.

Of course, the paperback included science fiction stories, cost 35 cents and was issued in the 50s. The advertising campaign was clever. The application was for a round-trip moontour reservation. A wallet-size card was issued including your moon weight with a complete rocketship flight schedule for the Moon, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. What is really funny is that you werent committed to make a voyage. You received your card and schedule with the option to change your mind in the future. What made this campaign so out of this world was that it really was an effort to market science fiction books. Now I wonder what happened in light of all this? I feel certain that 60 years ago that enthusiasm and drive was what propelled us to succeed. Where did that futuristic thinking go? Why did it disappear? Well, lets think about our goals on a national level. What are the futuristic goals? I watch and read the news on a regular basis, and my conclusion is there are no futuristic goals. We need to move our heads and particularly our brains away from our cell phones and become active. We need to press Congress and the President to set goals which include space travel and exploring other planets and their respective moons. Remember these endeavors provide a huge pay-off. Travel and exploration of the moon gave us our advanced computer, satellite and telescope technologies.

I'll take 75 degrees and sunny in January any day. What a wonderful paradise to live in! Take advantage every chance you get, because it'll be 50 and raining before you know it. Temperatures in the Gulf have stayed in the low 60s most of this winter which is very unusual. I rack them up and the next day they are gone. Be persistent; it pays off every time. If you're fishing offshoreremember both Grouper and Snapper are closed, so your best The 2013 Snapper season has not been set yet; I'll pass the information along as soon as I get it.

They are plentiful, fun to catch and great to eat! Let's not forget If you are an app person, The basic app is free although premiums will cost you. But regulations here. Never hurts to be prepared!
