  1. In his latest Dad's corner he says learning should not be fun. Fuck you Steve.
  2. Steve is starting his fast on November 7th and continuing through November 16th. Ten days! That can't be healthy, can it? I'm surprised he isn't going for 40 days, like Jesus. Teri, being the weaker vessel, is only fasting one day. I suppose she should be grateful that Steve doesn't insist that she join him for all ten days. Mods, please merge this if a thread has already started. I didn't see one.
  3. Stevie emailed: I have watched my married sons and their wives work patiently with their children to teach them to be grateful. It is amazing what persistence it takes to make progress against the selfishness of the flesh, and oh how delightful it is to hear sweet little “Thank yous.” First we teach a child to be grateful to those around him who bless him. Then he needs to learn to thank God, Who is the giver of all good gifts, and Who cannot be seen. We all enjoy being around grateful people, but those who are ungrateful tend to weigh us down. Are we dads setting the example for gratitude in the family? Are we looking for things others in the home do so we can share our gratefulness with them? It is one thing to say “thank you” and quite another to express why we are grateful for what they did. Who would have thought how absolutely foundational being thankful can be even to a person’s eternity? “Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful...” (Romans 1:21) Steven Maxwell << thanks notice, Stevie now calls himself Steven. Sounds like the back rubs have become more domineering.....
  4. To continue this fantastic anti-fast/feast I decided to make my favourite risotto. I don't know if radicchio is known and grown somewhere else in the world, btw this is it It's a sort of red salad typical of Veneto. I used more or less the amount you see in the pic. Ingredients: radicchio, 2shallots, walnuts, butter, homemade bouillon, Carnaroli rice, half a glass of red wine, boiling water, Gorgonzola cheese, Parmigiano. I put some butter in the pan to melt, cut two shallots in very little piecess and add to the butter. I cut the radicchio leaves and the walnuts in little pieces and add when tthe shallots turn gold. I cooked it for 5-7 minutes, adding some spoonfuls of boiling water to avoid burning. When water evaporates I added rice and toasted for two minutes. Then added the wine, a half glass of cabernet sauvignon. Then I kept the rice covered with boiling water for 15-16 minutes. At the end I tasted, added some salt, nutmeg, pepper, Gorgonzola cheese and Parmigiano. Stirred. Ready for the dish. I am the worst food blogger ever and forgot to take a pic of the dish...off to self flagellate, not, better leaving that to Stevhovah Good lunch to everyone!
  5. Good morning everyone! Happy anti-fast! And happy birthday to meeee. To seriously celebrate this important day (seriously, a milestone in the history of humankind!)...voila, bread with nutella! Apologies to everyone for the pisspoor quality of pics, you know, I'm trying to un-follow Maxwell's footsteps, but Christopher's genuine talent for ruining any shoot just sticks with me... Directly from the Shelter, here is the recipe for the bread you see in the pic: 50 gr of sourdough, melt (stirring slowly) with 200gr of water (slightly warm 24ºC), leave it rest and air for 20/30 minutes, then add 150gr flour (sifted, I use 100gr whole flour and 50gr manitoba), let it rest (well closed at 21º/22º C) for 12/13 hours (if you do it in the evening, til next morning).Next morning the rested mixture should be full of bubbles.You add 400gr of water (24ºC, keep some to melt the salt and add later) ad stir, let it rest and air for some 20/30 minutes. Then add 100gr whole flour (sifted) and 750gr of your favourite flour (sifted, better if with it is a flour with good strength, otherwise you can mix it with some manitoba). You start to knead [it is important when you knead that you make a movement like folding and then pressing the dough, it helps to develop the gluten chain, it is an instinctive movement, so nothing difficult] and add the water you left with 18/19gr of salt. Work kneading for some 10 minutes. When you feel the knead is soft and homogenous you put it to rest in a warm place (24º/26ºC) for 2,5 hours or until you see it doubles. to increase the final volume during this first fermentation you can (for a maximum of two times) gently turn the dough upside down and fold it on itself like a towel, it's not mandatory but it helps. Then you gently take it and make 3 parts of 550gr ca, let the boulages rest for 15/30 minutes til the knead relaxes. Then gently fold every boulage on itself giving it the shape you prefer. You put it on your unplugged oven's plate to rest for 1/1, 5 hours (covered with some thin foil), you must not directly touch the knead with your hands anymore till it is cooked.When it is rested you take it out and put the oven at 220ºC with a little bowl of water inside, when it reaches the temperature you can make the cut (if you want) on top of your knead and then put it in the oven. It cooks for half an hour then you lower the temperature at 200ºC for another 15/20 minutes. To know if your bread is cooked you knock on its bottom and if it sounds void it's ready.ETA it's better to put it on a grid to cool down. if you like a crunchy crust in the last 10 minutes of cookng you can keep the oven's door slightly open (with a wooden spoon) to let the steam come out and when the bread is cooked leave it for some ten to twenty minutes in the oven (turned off) with the door fully open.I know this recipe seems too much trouble but for me it's worth it. I usually do it once or twice a week, I make a lot and then I freeze what we don't eat so I have a stock for the whole week. Anyway, let's enjoy the breakfast and see you later for the menu of the day (hint: cake...risotto...pizza...)
  6. Today while waiting in urgent care I took the liberty of reading the cringe worthy sample chapter of Colorado with the Moodys. My heart broke a little with every paragraph for Sarah Maxwell who has absolutely zero options in life. http://www.titus2.com/book-10-colorado-with-the-moodys.html?utm_source=155&utm_medium=288&utm_campaign=423

    Oh, Maxwell Family....Stevehovah has declared another fast period, so FJ will rebel against his rather nutty religious inclinations by implementing an anti-fast. What is an anti-fast? The anti-fast is FJ's stomping stiletto against Stevehovah's dangerous and manipulative nonsense. It appears that this time, he and his crew will be fasting for seven days to do something or other to their faith life. In turn, FJ will stage an anti-fast, or a period of time where we eat whatever we want, in rebellion of Stevehovah's craziness. How do I participate in an anti-fast? You get yourself somewhere comfy and then you eat whatever you want. It could be some cake, a whole cake, or ten cakes. Pick your vice, and eat however much you want. Boom! You've anti-fasted. Good for you, standing up against the religious craziness that is Stevehovah. FJ does not condone any drinking or eating that may go against any prescribed food and drink regimens, or that would go against a physician's recommendation. Please anti-fast responsibly.
  8. He asks dads if they plan to feed and clothe their kids their entire lives or are they preparing them to excel in life. I would say he's doing the former quite well.
  9. "The fast begins after dinner Sunday evening, the 17th, and ends Tuesday morning, the 19th, at breakfast." i hope no one posted this yet, I can't believe another fast is coming up AGAIN
  10. From the latest Seriously Dad post: Yeah...that is not even my list of things I value most in my husband. I mean, yeah, I like that he's responsible and polite and hardworking. But I don't love that stuff. What I love, what's most important of all, is that he's my best friend, my truest confidant, he's funny and fun and smart and a feminist, he's curious and interesting and adventurous. Steve's list sounds like what you look for in a well-mannered roommate, not a life partner.
  11. We know they are what some would call friends and the Maxwell's have been at recent events such as Jill's wedding. Do you think Stevie is feeling the "heat" now that Boob had married off 2 daughters? Boob seems to want his kids to marry and is actively searching for spouses for them. Tic toc, Stevie, tic toc...
  12. From PCGS http://www.pcgs.com/news/health-benefit ... ine4072015 Numismatics is my favorite hobby, I have been collecting coins on and off for thirty years now. I have gotten great satisfaction in completing a coin set like the Franklin Half Dollars or the State Quarters. It has also enabled me to meet new people and make friends who have the same interests I do which is good for an introvert like me. It's OK to have a hobby that doesn't involve Jesus. Hell even the Duggars have some hobbies. Jeremiah is into chess, Jinger is into photography, most of the boys like to hunt, Joy likes animals.
  13. Did anyone notice that Steve changed the name of his Dad's Corner to Seriously? Teri's Mom Corner remains unchanged. I guess that only Steve and his musings for men can be taken seriously. Steve is terribly obvious in his rebranding efforts and his rampant, well honed sexism and bigotry. I know it shouldn't bother me, but his blant oppression of the women he says that he loves and cherishes ignites an anger in me. Also he was SERIOUSLY grilling in a suit and tie. A man's work is serious business and always requires that a man dress seriously.
  14. Not food but the news. Refrain from listening, watching, or reading the news for 60 days. In his newest Dad's Corner he says the news gets one person hyped up and ignore thei wife. WTF? Sorry but my job depends on what is going on in the world.
  15. What does fasting mean to them? The difference between 1 been burrito and 2 animal crackers vs nothing? And of course it was originally the "dads" idea, while mom just followed along with the wonderful idea. I wonder if they even know about intersexed people let alone genderqueer or gender variant people... Sign up for men here, and for women there... But I guess if the parents were Godly enough, they would give birth to a child with "average" sized genitals. Does anyone want to sign up for this trainwreck? Apparently "After signing up, an e-mail with details is sent."
  16. Who would you rather be married to and why? I chose Steve because even though he is physically fit I like my chances of rebelling better. I think if I said "fuck you I'm drinking diet Pepsi." I would get to still sleep in my bed. Fuck only knows what Robert would do. I would also feel better telling Steve to 'fuck off and clean the god damn fans yourself', than Robert. What do you think Steve would do if Terri spoke to him like that?
  17. {Yawn} nothing new.... T&S celebrate their 40th.... I believe Mary's 18th is in a day or two, so we shall see a "special" post all about her...
  18. 8/7, today is Stevie's birthday. BIG NEWSFLASH, he LOVES spending time with the FAMILY!!! Bet ya'll didn't know THAT!! I think he's 63, or maybe 62. Mary's 18th birthday is soon, plus their wedding anniversary. There may be another August birthday, too...
  19. His latest Dad's article is up. It's a doozy. You have to read it for yourself. Basically compares abortion to pollution in reference to his Memorial Day blog post. You can't make this shit up.
  20. His latest Seriously article is up. He talks about how his dad didn't spend enough time with his family. I'm assuming he is talking about his biological dad Paul as this is the bible verse justifying his comments-But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof†(Romans 13:14).
  21. In his latest Seriously Corner he writes about how he was addicted to smokes during his stint in the Air Force. He then compares cigarette addiction to being in prison. What no comparison to Pepsi?
  22. Wow, he actually did some work himself! I don't recall many blogs about him actually "working", only dictating to others what to do. (I think I remember one post about him changing the car oil a long time ago.) Usually he just drives the bus, "preaches" or "writes". Mary sure has a lot of clothes in her closet. I guess the Maxwell's aren't stingy on that end. A couple pictures of Joshie. He sure is a little cutie! I love the little space between his front teeth. I can't make up my mind who he resembles the most, I'm thinking Stevie.
  23. I'm confounded. The entire clan traveled after dark to "wipe down" surfaces in Joseph's house, which "Mom and Dad are going to be writing in, soon" (paraphrased). Is "writing" code for another verb? There isn't enough room in the mothership for those two (evil) geniuses to write, already? Also - looks like Joseph just let progress stop when Elizabeth M. said, "Not just no but heavens no!" before the skunked wedding. Maxwells got me sayin' "huh????" ETA: Joseph let progress on the remodel stop when Elilzabeth bolted. I should've been specific. We know the poor kid let progress on, er, other things stop, way before now.
  24. In the latest Dad's Corner, Steve Maxwell outlines his plan to end abortion; "I expect most reading this article are like I am, and you hate abortion. You have voted to get people into office who will stand in the legislatures of our land against abortion. You probably give financially to groups that offer alternatives to abortion and seek to counsel away from abortion those who would consider it. Maybe you have stood on a street corner with other Christians carrying a sign crying out against abortion. There may be other ways you are involved in combatting abortion in our nation. I think those are all wonderful and necessary things for us to be doing to fight abortion. I wonder, though, if we are using the most powerful and yet the simplest tool that we have available to every one of us to stop abortion. Let’s go back to the Old Testament and look at Israel when they were in bondage in Egypt. What did Israel do when they had a great need? They cried out to the Lord!" He goes on to say he has added a plea to end abortion to each of his prayers. This includes his prayers before and after each session on the Maxwell traveling show, and when he prays for another person's needs. I wonder how that will go over when he prays for wait staff in restaurants? I've often wondered, and I'm not even snarking here, why an all powerful God would need prayer upon prayer, plea upon plea, to do something? Especially something he supposedly hates as much as abortion? Is it kind of like when your kids try to wear you down by asking for something over and over? Anyway, the entire Corner is here; titus2.com/corners/dads-corner/will-you-sigh-and-cry.html
  25. I was just reading the Homeschoolers Anonymous blog, and ran across this post: http://homeschoolersanonymous.wordpress ... o-control/ It was horrifying, and sounded exactly like Steve Maxwell's advice.
