Preztel salad - graham cracker crust but use pretzels instead. Next layer is a cream cheese layer, kind of like the knockoff cheesecake recipe above. Top all of that with strawberry jello. 

 

I've had that at potlucks... it's kind of addicting, lol.

I don't think they do either and frankly, I don't think many Yanks do.  I know I didn't until I took Western Civ at Furman 20 years ago.  Just one example:  The Battle of the Somme lasted from January -November 1916 and there were over 600,000 Allied casualties and about that same number of German casualties.  How horrid that so many young men lost their lives!

Kurt Vonnegut believed that we should go back to calling Veteran's Day Armistice Day , not to dishonor those who served but to better commemorate the cessation of hostilities.  

I'll admit, I didn't know as much as I thought I did. I think WWI is sort of glossed over in school, and WWII gets most of the learning time. At least that's what my experience seems like. I'm taking a WWI History class this semester, and I'm learning SOOO much... There's a YouTube channel that has been doing videos for the 100th anniversary that is really good, my professor has us watching some of them for class

Yep, and this is the type of car seat I rode in:

Edit:  in the FRONT seat, between my parents. lol

My dad is the youngest of 5, born in 1959, and the only one who had a car seat- that's the kind he had. I think those were more just to keep the kids out of the way, lol.

It kind of was too in my middle and high school history classes. We learned about WWI always in how it lead into WWII and then learned about WWII. My friend and I looked it up on our own (we were both really into history) that we learned about different battles, who all fought in the war, how many died, the weapons used and other details. If not for that we'd probably only know that there was WWI, it lead to WWII and everyone called it the Great War and War to End All Wars which the latter will never not be funny and depressing at the same time. Our history classes always just talked about the big stuff like Revolutionary War, Civil War, and WWII or if it was World History then English history, Revolutionary War, Civil War and WWII. Occasionally, they'd throw in a little about battles with Native Americans that depended on the teacher and the accuracy also depended on the teacher.

Sorry I don't know how to link, but dayum that's a weird Thanksgiving photo Derick posted on his IG.  Is it just me or is it bizarrely phallic?  

Meanwhile Jill and the boys are out walking.

Here is Derick's post. That is indeed incredibly strange!

What an odd choice of photo. I'm weirded out by the way he is gripping that turkey leg. Living up to their thread title, I see!

I had a multi quote going on the other thread, and by the time I'd finished reading, it was closed, lol. When I clicked the link to the new thread, my multi quotes followed me here :)

Wrecks weird turkey leg pic...I feel like it should have a NSFW warning. I'm part cackling cause I had a shitty morning and need a good laugh, and part icked out.

Maybe he'd just ripped it off or something? It seems strangely intense. Perhaps he has competition and won the turkey leg?

I mean, my niece screams "dibs on drumsticks" if fried chicken is mentioned or a commercial airs for it. Watching the KFC space ship simulator episode of Community with her was interesting. ?

Talk shit about Black Friday all you want, Derick, but as much as the orgy of consumerism displeases me, I got my all-time favorite mascara for a pretty good fraction of what I usually pay for it.

Oooo WW1 thread drift!  I've spent years researching the July-November 1916 Somme offensive, and managed to go to the centenary remembrance service in France at Theipval in 2016. It as such a grey and dingy kind of day, but when the minutes silence started, the sun came out and the birds started singing.. it was beautiful. 

On my trip this year to Frise and Albert, I learnt that JRR Tolkien fought there and that the vast water ways of the Somme was inspiration for the dead marshes in LOTR.

Oh yes derick you’re sooooo smart and special. 

But seriously. Can you be nice, like, just one time?

Hey Derick, I agree that for a person with a family to support , no discernible job and tuition payments, it IS best that YOU are not out buying anything. Frankly, without your wife's family money you'd be on welfare. Most people are smarter, more responsible and harder working than you. Zip it!

That picture disturbs me deeply...

Ya me too.  It's a holiday food pic that doesn't have much to do with the holiday. Where's the context? Where's the rest of the feast, however modest? Where's the family?  Is your Thanksgiving post seriously all about you and your huge know-it-all brain?

Oh and that bare foot? Ew. The knife?  Eek.  The phallic overtones? SMH

Been a while since I've had time to keep up with the Dills but I'm so glad I checked in just in time to see Wreck's Turkey Leg Death Grip.

Now that Derick is in law school November is probably a not-so-fun time for him. Exams at my school were basically right after the Thanksgiving holiday so most of my fellow students would not go home for Thanksgiving. I always got together with my family and would just make an effort to study a little extra before the holiday, though. I was definitely in the minority on that. Basically the entire month of November comprised of studying for finals (and trying to stay afloat in the last couple weeks of classes). One of my favorite parts of post-law school life is being able to enjoy the lead up to Christmas like a normal person.

That's obviously their Cross Church duplex kitchen. This photo adds to my theory that they're definitely on the "outs" with the rest of the Duggar clan. 

And for all the squick of the turkey leg wank, I'm gonna BEC over that stovetop. Those drip pans didn't get THAT dirty from one day's cooking. Yuk.

And yeah - I BEC'd over Jessa's filthy house too so...

      It's December and we still haven't had our first freeze of the season.

      In light of the issues with the electrical grid in Texas, perhaps I should make an appeal to Rufus to continue to keep us above freezing? 🤔

      Advice needed from anyone with experience planning a Catholic wedding
      She's been engaged less than a week and I've got questions.
      Booking a church or venue is done way in advance so we're on that now.   
      Why do churches ask what the date is when they say specifically on the website that you can't set a date until discussing it with the coordinator?  Why can't they ask for a range? Since when have Catholic churches been such pains in the ass about being a member of that parish to get married there?  She's coming in from out of state for the wedding, she doesn't have a parish here.  I'm not religious and my local parish church is ugly.  My childhood parish waived this and said they could marry there, but it's not an ideal location and aesthetically it's fine but she'd prefer older and more cathedralesque if they do the church wedding.   My grandpa's old church is beautiful and she's in love with it....but they're the only one who hasn't gotten back to us.  (St. Hedwig's for anyone familiar with Chicago's Bucktown) Bribes still work, right?  In the old days you could slip the church a "donation" and they'd be a lot more lenient about weddings, annulments, and funerals for non-practicing Catholics.  How are we supposed to figure out the going rate for graft 2021?   I have no problem lying to the administrative staff and claiming to be a practicing Catholic if it helps, does that make me a sociopath?  Although I don't want to lie to a priest directly.  Can you be a sociopath with religious guilt? I've been married twice, both times to Catholics.  First wedding in a Baptist church and second in congregational or community something.  I did that because I suck at planning this kind of thing and fundy-lites will marry anyone with a 20 minute meet and greet, apparently.  I wanted to elope both times and was over ruled both times so I resentfully half-assed it so this is the first time I'm trying to help plan a wedding properly.  
      The church she wants will waive the bride and groom being members if one of their parents are.  I love my daughter so much, but if I have to start actually attending church to make this work I will expect her to pay for the increase in my wine and edible budget.  Member for at least four months.  Driving from the burbs into the city once a week timing it so I get there just in time to toss them an envelope with money I'd rather keep and skedaddle is something I'd rather avoid.
      I know lots of people think what I'm trying to do is awful.  That non-practicing Catholics shouldn't get married in the church, that it's a sin to try and game the system, etc.  That church shopping for the aesthetic is  a sacrilege or such.  I understand how people can feel that way, it's valid.  But people like that would disapprove of me for a million other reasons anyway, so I'm okay with that.
      This is how I'm rationalizing it. 
      I raised her Catholic and while not practicing as an adult she does believe in God, Jesus, giving a shout out to Mary and all that.  They are going to raise their kids Catholic in the sense of sending them to CCD so they have the religious ed and then they can make their own choices as adults.   I spent thousands of dollars on CCD over the years and two out of three of my kids don't know what an apostle is.  They owe me.   Being Catholic is as much a cultural thing as a religious choice and that's the only one we have.   You can't opt out of being Catholic, as my sister once learned when she went fundy-lite, due to the indelible mark of baptism so they keep you on the roster.  If you can't leave the church without a formal declaration then I there should be something in it for us.  One wedding and burial per Catholic no matter how lapsed seems fair to me. When my uncle died in the late 1950s the church wouldn't allow him to be buried in a Catholic cemetery so they put him in a secular one.  Several years later my dad made a sizable "donation" and voila, look who got exhumed and is now buried next to Grandma and Grandpa.  Wish he was here now to handle this.

      When everything will go on as planned, I will marry Mr. S. at the end of the year. But honestly my optimism is fading away (Covid19 and one other fucking annoying issue, that is more likely to get the wedding rescheduled than Covid19) . I wanted to tell it here, just...well...because. You understand?

      Found this when googling Mother of the Bride dresses for Rod thread when Nurie was engaged...
      Now that my baby just got engaged I'm going need a mother of the bride dress myself, what do you think?  I'm going for tasteful and flattering and I think this fits the bill.
