Football Season is here!

47


Oh.  You thought I meant American Football?  Well that too.
Soccer (futbol, football, futebol, etc.) has officially started back up all over the world. 
I know. I know. In America, it's Football season which really never made a lot of sense to me.  American football hardly puts ball to foot or foot to ball.  I wish the highly paid commissioner of Football would explain that to me.  Why is it not called Rugby Lite? or Minor Gladiators?  Just wondering - why call it football at all?

An observation - The last time I was in Soldier Field I sat on the high side.  You know the side that is opposite the good seats and it takes a Sherpa to find your seats.  Pictured above is one guy with his Sherpa. Notice that she is carrying all of the necessary supplies - nachos, beer and a coke.  No oxygen needed until she reaches row 14...

Whichever football you watch - it's time and what a great time of year.  Warm days and cool nights are back for a limited time only and I urge you to enjoy it while you can.

Who doesn't love some leaves changing?

I included this picture as it just looks like September - warm yet a sign of change to come...

And now for a new picture above- Can you guess where it is by looking "through the keyhole"? 
"This tiny island country plays host to one of the greatest (and scariest) landing patterns in the world. 747s are so close you can reach out and almost touch them.  Beware of the jet blast on takeoff as it can blow you away... " 
Can you guess the location?


Correct answers will be given recognition but half the fun is trying to figure it out.  The correct answer will be revealed in the subsequent issue.  Good luck and have fun.

Loch Ness, Scotland - Keyhole Answer


46


"This high land sports some deep, freshwater with plenty of peat so you can't see very far into the water.  Don't look too long for Nessie as she hasn't been seen for years... " 

Last month,  Russell Racean won the location by guessing correctly.  He correctly answered Loch Ness, Scotland.  Maybe he had the pleasure of being there.  It looks really ominous. Thanks for playing and well done.

Loch Ness
is Scotland's (if not the world's) most famous lake (or 'loch' in Scotland). It runs for 23 miles (37 km) along the natural geological cleft that stretches from Fort William in the west of the Scottish Highlands, to Inverness in the north.

About a mile wide at most places it is the purported home of the Loch Ness monster (called Nessie), a possibly mythical creature, which dwells in the Loch and is occasionally spotted by locals and passers-by. The sightings claimed lend credence to the remote possibility of a group of survivors of the long-extinct plesiosaurs (which lived up to around 65 million years ago).

Scotland is a sparsely populated country and only a small proportion of that population lives in the Scottish Highlands. Therefore, it is mostly barren territory. Villages in the highlands are small neat places with a lot of fighting and history behind them (remember the movie Braveheart?). It has been a battle against nature and also amongst human beings for survival and supremacy. Some interesting facts: Number of tourists visiting Scotland annually surpass the population of Scotland and the number of Scots living outside Scotland is many times more than the population of Scotland.

English is the official language of Scotland and is spoken by more or less everyone. Gaelic is spoken by about 60,000, and many Gaelic words are commonly used. The Scots, like most Britons, generally flourish when they live abroad but at home have rather poor foreign language skills, although those in tourism-related industries generally have better language skills. French, German and Spanish are the most commonly known foreign languages.

Here are some useful Gaelic words:

    Aber = river mouth (Aberdeen)
    Ben = mountain (Ben Nevis)
    Burn = stream (Bannockburn)
    Cèilidh = informal celebration, party
    Dale = Nordic word for valley, not actually Gaelic, but used alongside it.
    Firth = estuary (Firth of Forth) Firth comes from the Nordic languages too and means fjord
    Glen = valley (Glencoe) - usually refers to a steep-sided glaciated valley
    Inver = mouth of or confluence of (Inverness)
    Strath = vale (Strathspey) - tends to be a more shallow, wider, often flat-bottomed valley
    Kyle = narrow strait of water, sound (Kyle of Sutherland)
    Loch = lake (Loch Lomond) however not all lochs are enclosed. Loch Marie is a fjord and is open to the sea. So a lake can always be a loch, but a loch is not always a lake!
    Lochan = small lake, pond

Good Luck Mr. Gorsky
29
ON JULY 20, 1969, AS COMMANDER OF THE APOLLO 11 LUNAR MODULE, NEIL ARMSTRONG WAS THE FIRST PERSON TO SET FOOT ON THE MOON.

HIS FIRST WORDS AFTER STEPPING ON THE MOON,
"THAT'S ONE SMALL STEP FOR MAN, ONE GIANT LEAP FOR MANKIND," WERE TELEVISED TO EARTH AND HEARD BY MILLIONS. BUT, JUST BEFORE HE RE-ENTERED THE LANDER, HE MADE THE ENIGMATIC REMARK "GOOD LUCK, MR. GORSKY."
MANY PEOPLE AT NASA THOUGHT IT WAS A CASUAL REMARK CONCERNING SOME RIVAL SOVIET COSMONAUT.  HOWEVER, UPON CHECKING, THERE WAS NO GORSKY IN EITHER THE RUSSIAN OR AMERICAN SPACE PROGRAMS.
 
OVER THE YEARS, MANY PEOPLE QUESTIONED ARMSTRONG AS TO WHAT THE 'GOOD LUCK, MR. GORSKY' STATEMENT MEANT, BUT ARMSTRONG ALWAYS JUST SMILED.
 
ON JULY 5, 1995, IN TAMPA BAY, FLORIDA, WHILE ANSWERING QUESTIONS FOLLOWING A SPEECH, A REPORTER BROUGHT UP THE 26-YEAR-OLD QUESTION ABOUT MR.GORSKY ANDTHIS TIME HE FINALLY RESPONDED BECAUSE HIS MR. GORSKY HAD JUST DIED, SO NEIL ARMSTRONG FELT HE COULD NOW ANSWER THE QUESTION.

HERE IS THE ANSWER TO
"WHO WAS MR. GORSKY?":
IN 1938, WHEN HE WAS A KID IN A SMALL MID-WESTERN TOWN, HE WAS PLAYING BASEBALL WITH A FRIEND IN THE BACKYARD. HIS FRIEND HIT THE BALL, WHICH LANDED IN HIS NEIGHBOR'S YARD BY THEIR BEDROOM WINDOW. HIS NEIGHBORS WERE MR AND MRS. GORSKY.
AS HE LEANED DOWN TO PICK UP THE BALL, YOUNG ARMSTRONG HEARD MRS. GORSKY SHOUTING AT MR. GORSKY,
"SEX! YOU WANT SEX?! YOU'LL GET SEX WHEN THE KID NEXT DOOR WALKS ON THE MOON!"
It broke the place up.

This is NOT a True Story according to Snopes but it is quite a comical legend.


Mensa Convention
22
   

There was a Mensa convention in San Francisco.

Mensa, as you probably know, is a national organization for people who have an IQ of 140 or higher. Several of the Mensa members went out for lunch at a local café.


When they sat down, they discovered that their salt shaker contained pepper, and their pepper shaker was full of salt. How could they swap the contents of the two bottles without spilling any, and using only the implements at hand?  ...Clearly, this was a job for Mensa minds.  The group debated the problem and presented ideas and finally, came up with a brilliant solution involving a napkin, a straw, and an empty saucer.

 

They called the waitress over, ready to dazzle her with their solution.  "Ma'am," they said, "we couldn't help but notice that the pepper shaker contains salt and the salt shaker has pepper."  But before they could finish, the waitress interrupted: " Oh sorry about that."  She leaned over the table, unscrewed the caps of both bottles and switched them.

 

There was dead silence at the Mensa table.

Kick Ass Chicken Lasagna

20

Ingredients
9 uncooked lasagna noodles


For the Filling:
1 tablespoon olive oil
1½ pounds boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into very small bits (1/2 inch or smaller)
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon black pepper (or to taste)
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
12 ounces whole milk ricotta cheese
1 egg
2 ounces grated Parmesan Romano cheese


For the Cheese Sauce:
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon flour
2½ cups milk (at least 2 %)
4 ounces grated Parmesan Romano cheese
12 ounces shredded mozzarella, divided
For the Mushrooms:
1 tablespoon butter
8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 teaspoon oregano

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350°. Lightly grease a 13 X 9 baking dish (I rub a little olive oil on the bottom and sides).
Cook the lasagna noodles according to package instructions, but only cook halfway (because they will cook more in the oven). Drain and rinse with cold water (stops the cooking process).
While the pasta cooks, heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Add the chicken. Then add the salt, pepper, oregano, and basil. Brown the chicken over medium high heat. This will take only 4-5 minutes (because the chicken pieces are small).
Set the drained noodles and cooked chicken aside.
In a medium bowl mix together the ricotta cheese, egg, and 2 ounces Grated Parmesan Romano. Stir in the cooked chicken and set aside.
Make the cheese sauce and cook the mushrooms at the same time. In a medium saucepan melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in the flour until it thickens. Then pour in the milk, stirring while you pour. Bring it to a simmer.
In a medium skillet (or re-use the pan you cooked the chicken in), melt the tablespoon of butter. Add the mushrooms and toss them with the oregano. Let them cook over medium high heat, stirring occasionally, until they are caramel in color - about 5 minutes.
When the milk in the saucepan simmers, stir in the 4 ounces of grated Parmesan Romano cheese, and 8 ounces of the mozzarella. Stir until it melts.
To assemble the lasagna, lay 3 of the noodles on the bottom of the prepared pan. Spread ⅓ of the ricotta mixture over the noodles. Spoon or ladle ⅓ of the cheese sauce over the ricotta mixture. This will help it to spread. Top with half of the mushrooms.
Repeat. When you get to the last layer, sprinkle the entire top with the remaining 4 ounces of shredded mozzarella cheese.


Bake for 35-40 minutes.
