Great Subs @ SUBMARINA - Hemet
Putting together and making a great speech is like making a great sandwich.  There are as many speeches as there are sandwiches. The analogy will become clearer as you wrap your mind around it or in this case, wrap your mouth around it.

The first thing that needs to be decided upon is what the speech or sandwich is going to be about and who is going to hear or eat it. There will be times when a peanut butter and jelly sandwich sounds great and other times the classic 
submarine sandwich will be better. There are speeches for all occasions. They may be for graduations, weddings, funerals and more.

We are going to focus on a wedding groom speech and a submarine sandwich.  That way we have already determined the type of speech and the type of sandwich we want to make.

The groom's wedding speech will be given to an audience of family and friends. The sub sandwiches will be for some of your buddies for half time during the football game. In this sense we have defined whom the recipient or audience is going to be.

Size does matter and is important. The length of your speech and length of  your submarine sandwich will make or break it regardless of everything else.  Three to five minutes is often long enough to capture your audience's attention, give your message, entertain and be completed before everyone else wants you done. Depending upon the size of your buddies, their appetites and snacks, a foot long sub is probably better then a six inch. You want enough to eat, but  not too much where you cannot enjoy the game and other munchies.

The beginning and end of your wedding speech is much like the choice of breads for your sandwich. Your introduction and finish is what holds your speech together. The bread on your sandwich has a bigger job then just holding the insides together also. A good choice of bread and buns can make all the difference in the world versus plain, skinny, white, sliced bread.

The ingredients of your speech and sandwich need to be what everyone enjoys the most. Both need to be balanced with ingredients and condiments. A boring speech or sandwich with nothing but a huge slab of meat will not interest most people. To many condiments or off subject topics in a speech can also make either distasteful. Always remember who is going to hear and eat what you are making. Parents, grand parents and Aunt Martha enjoy off color topics as much as people who enjoy anchovies on sub sandwich.

Finally, it is important how you present your creation. Serving a great sandwich on flimsy paper plates and no napkins is as enjoyable as someone who mumbles, doesn't use a microphone, is drunk or distractive when speaking. A  great presentation will always improve the speech or sandwich you created.

Follow this recipe and you can become a gourmet speech and sandwich maker.

This fan seems to be the standard throughout the Submarina California Subs chain.

Most of what I really need to know about how to live, and what to do and how to be, I learned in kindergarten. Wisdom was not at the top of the graduate school mountain, but there in the sandbox of the nursery school.

These are the things that I learned…..

…Share everything…Play fair…Don’t hit people…Put things back where you found them…Clean up your own mess…Don’t take things that aren’t yours…Say that you’re sorry when you hurt somebody…Wash your hands before you eat…Flush…Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you…Live a balanced life…Learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day, some…

…Take a nap every afternoon…When you go out into the world – watch for traffic…hold hands…and…stick together…Be aware of wonder…Remember the little seed in the plastic cup…the roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows how or why, but we are all like that…

…Goldfish and hamsters and white mice and even little seeds in the plastic cup – they all die…So do we…

…And remember the book about Dick and Jane and the first word you learned, the biggest word of all, LOOK…Everything you need is in there somewhere…The Golden rule…and love…and basic sanitation…Ecology…and politics…and sane living…

…Think of what a better world it would be if we all---the whole world---had cookies and milk at about three o’clock every afternoon and then laid down with our blankets for a nap…Or if we had a basic policy in our nations to always put things back where we found them and clean up our own messes…And it is still true, no matter how old you are…when you go out into the world…it is best to hold hands and stick together.

Queen Elizabeth II personal car - 2001 Jaguar Daimler Majestic V8 LWB is for sale. 

The car was custom built for the Queen and she used it personally for 3 years.  

Check out the full history of the Queen's 2001 Jaguar Daimler Majestic with photos and video.

The Independent has a full article covering this rather rare event.  Included is the full history of the car, its use by Queen Elizabeth II between 2001-2004 and its subsequent history.

Read The Independent's story about the Queen & her Jaguar.

The Press Enterprise had an interesting story last week about the Cabazon Water district.  Cabazon is located on the I-10 between Banning and Morongo casino. 

The story included a reference to a youtube video.  Even though it's not Hemet related it's still an interesting  look into our common past.  It shows how it was in Cabazon, and may have been in Hemet, a hundred years ago. 

The video describes the pioneer effort to get water, the digging of the San Jacinto tunnel through our local mountains, and other historical points of interest.

Check it out below.

One evening a grandson and his grandfather were talking.  "How old are you Grandpa," asked the grandson, "and what was it like when you were growing up?"

The grandfather reminisced:
 "Well, let me think a minute..."   

I was born before:
1. television
2. penicillin
3. polio shots
4. frozen foods
5. xerox
6. contact lenses
7. frisbees, and
8. the pill

There were no:
1. credit cards
2. laser beams, or
3. ball point pens

Man had not invented:
1. pantyhose
2. air conditioners
3. dishwashers
4. clothes dryers (clothes were hung in the dry fresh air), and
5. man had not walked on the moon

Your grandmother and I got married first.....and then lived together

Every family had a father and mother

Until I was 25 I called every man older than me "Sir,"
and after I turned 25, I still called policemen and every man with a title "Sir"

We were before gay rights, computer dating, dual careers, daycare centers and group therapy

Our lives were governed by the Ten Commandments, good judgement and common sense

We were taught to know the difference between right and wrong and to stand up and take responsibility for our actions

Serving your country was a privilege and living in this country was a bigger privilige

We thought fast food was what people ate during Lent

Having a meaningful relationship meant getting along with your cousins

Draft dodgers were those who closed front doors as the evening breeze started

Time sharing meant time the family spent together in the evenings and weekends
(not purchasing condominiums)

We never heard of FM radios, tape decks, CDs, electric typewriters, yogurt or guys wearing earrings

We listened to Big Bands, Jack Benny and the President's speeches on our radios

I don't remember any kid blowing his brains out listening to Tommy Dorsey

If you saw anything with "Made in Japan" on it, it was junk

The term "making out" referred to how you did on your school exam

Pizza Hut, McDonald's and instant coffee were unheard of

We had 5 & 10 cent stores where you could actually buy things for 5 & 10 cents

Ice cream cones, phone calls, streetcar rides and Pepsi were all a nickel

If you didn't want to splurge, you could spend your nickel on enough stamps to mail one letter and two postcards

You could buy a new Chevy coupe for $600...but who could afford one?

Too bad, because gas was 11 cents a gallon

In my day:
1. "grass" was mowed
2. "coke" was a cold drink
3. "pot" was something your mother cooked in
4. "rock music" was your grandmother's lullaby
5. "aids" were helpers in the principal's office
5. "chip" meant a piece of wood
6. "hardware" was found in the hardware store, and
7. "software" wasn't even a word

And... we were the last generation to actually believe that a lady needed a husband to have a baby.

No wonder people call us "old and confused" and say there is a generation gap...

"Grandson, how old do you think I really am?"

I bet you, the reader, have this old decrepit man in mind... your'e in for a shock!


"Grandson, ..........I am 59 years old today!"

Savor the strange taste of heaven

Tasty food, fantastic and easy recipes, spices, salads, puddings, if these are the words that revolve around your head most of the times then congratulations, you very much happily suffer from food craze which is not at all bad. One of the significant symptoms of this disease is a constant urge to look out for unusual and strange recipes that you can make to impress yourself and the crowd around you. If you have this symptom then you do not have to search and look out for more because here is the list of top 10 most unusual and strange recipes around the world.

1. The Wild Green sauce

Wilderness must have appealed to you a lot of times. You might have been engrossed a lot of times in its wild beauty. However, this wilderness will now appeal your savory tongue with this awesome recipe of wild green sauce. As the name suggests, the main ingredients of this sauce come right from the wild. This sauce contains finely cut and chopped dandelion leaves, chives, sorrel, lambs quarter, shallot and nasturtium leaves. This sauce owes its great taste to cottage cheese, plain yoghurt, white vinegar and pepper.

2. The Tomato Bread

You must have come across innumerable types of breads like garlic bread, brown bread, milk bread, fruit bread and so on but you might not have heard about the tomato bread. This bread retains the tangy flavor of tomato and deeply reminds you of your favorite tomato soup that you had always ordered first in the starters. Besides tomato, you can also savor the excellent taste of cloves, butter and brown sugar.

3. The Coffee Jelly

Often you might have entered the kitchen to make jelly for your little kid so that he can show off to his friends that his mom is so cool. You might have cooked orange, strawberry, mango or black current jellies but never tried a hand on the coffee jelly. This unusual recipe allows your child to have his/her first taste of coffee without any side effects. Moreover this jelly just tastes like those coffee toffees that you used to love when you yourself were a kid. This recipe makes use of both freezing and absolutely hot coffee along with vanilla essence to enhance the flavor. In case you plan to show your cooking expertise in your friend circle then you can as well add whiskey instead of vanilla essence to the jelly to enjoy this unusual recipe to the core.

4. The Spice Cake

If you are tired of eating the most usual flavors of cakes like vanilla, chocolate, butterscotch, pineapple, strawberry, black current, black forest, and so on so forth then the so called "spice cake" is the one for you to try on. As the name suggests, this cake is made of three spices namely cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. One should take utter care while using nutmeg and use it in restricted quantities.

5. Bloody Leroy Mix

Absolutely true to its name, this recipe is totally unusual and strange because it has a unique combination of tomatoes and black coffee. This recipe also contains whiskey, butter, brown sugar, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, beer, fruit juice, lemon juice, peppers, onion, olives, liquid smoke, molasses, oregano, garlic cloves, basil and salt. Just like its name, this recipe can be prepared by just mixing certain proportions of all these ingredients together and serving hot or cold depending upon your own liking.

6. Swamp Water Punch

Unlike its name, this recipe does not contain any kind of swamp water as it claims to be. However, if you want to show your cooking expertise and surprise or shock your guests with your unusual menu then this recipe should be placed right on the top. This recipe is very easy to make because it contains ginger ale, and blue food color to get the dramatic appearance of swamp water. If your party consists of little kids who cannot handle alcohol then you can replace ginger ale with orange juice and serve it cold. If you add an artificial hand then this recipe would be an instant hit during Halloween for the kids.

7. Chickpea and Lime cake

If you wish to eat a cake with the tangiest flavor and full of nutrients then the chickpea and lime cake is the best one for you. As the name suggests, this cake is majorly made up of canned chickpeas and lime juice. Generally brown sugar or plain white sugar is used in most of the cakes; however, this cake utilizes fructose to sweeten it. For this reason, this cake is an exciting food option for sweet toothed diabetics and also for those people who are strictly dieting. The poppy seeds are also added to enhance the flavor of this fantastic recipe.

8. Corn Ice cream

For all the lovers, this particular ice cream would definitely come as a surprise. You might have had loads of vanilla, chocolate, butterscotch, black current, strawberry, and all such ice creams; however, corn ice cream is definitely an unusual recipe for it contains none of the essences. This ice cream is natural at its best and is absolutely the best for people who are allergic to food colors, flavors and additives. This lipsmackingly tasty ice cream is made simply by crushing the corn and then mixing it with the usual ice cream ingredients.

9. Jaljeera ice cream

This unusual and strange recipe is of the Indian origin. As the name suggests, this ice cream is made from jaljeera, a powder that is made up from the mixture of Indian chaat masala, dried mint leaves, salt and pepper. Jaljeera ice cream is made up of just jaljeera powder and water and nothing more. This ice cream is natural at its best. There is no kind of added flavor, thickeners, colors or additives to it. Hence, this ice cream is perfectly safe for people who are sensitive to artificial food items. Unlike other ice creams that taste just sweet, this ice cream tastes awesomely tangy, spicy, sweet and sour. This ice cream gives your tongue a chance to savor almost all kinds of flavors at once.

10. Chocolate Pakora

Yet another recipe from the Indian origin, pakoras are essentially made of chickpea dough that is mixed with other spices like chilli powder, pepper, the Indian chaat masala. Generally the pakoras are made by dipping pieces of vegetables like capsicum, eggplant, potato, onion, tomato, radish, mushroom and fruits like banana, pineapple, and so on so forth in the spicy dough and then frying them in oil. However, in this strange and unusual recipe, pieces of chocolate are dipped in the spicy dough and then fried in the oil. What you get as a result is the mouth watering taste of both spicy and sweet flavors that is truly heavenly.

The spicy fried chickpea dough literally gives you a spicy taste in the beginning and when you bite through the rest of the pakora the chocolate pieces simply melt in your mouth and mix with the lingering spicy taste making the whole eating experience simply awesome beyond words. Food is something that should be eaten while savoring every bite and every sip that enters in your mouth, only then it is worth while.
