As of today, I’m totally social media free!
I want to head off the new year by being free of pervasive propaganda and toxic manipulation. Today I deleted my Twitter account. I had previously deleted Facebook in 2016 after the election. It was epic toxic – people tearing each other down. Very bad for the soul.
While I believe in free speech, I don’t think wading a cesspool of negativity, lies and manipulation is good for humanity. Do as you wish, but I’m out. People who want to get a hold of me know how.
Fry a handful of garlic, onions and green peppers in the bottom of a saucepan with a splash of olive oil
Once fried up, add 4 cups of water with 2 bouillon cubes and boil this mixture
Add 2 cups of veggies (meat optional) in any configuration. Here’s my suggestion for veggie soup:
Could be more or less of any of these things. Frozen or fresh are okay, as long as they are 2 cups or less:
Cabbage (Napa preferred)
(Whatever you want)
Add 1/8 cup quick barley. If you want more barley, add another cup of broth because it absorbs liquid.
Spice it up as desired. I usually add a few shakes of pepper and maybe one shake of red pepper.
Simmer on low for :30 minutes, almost covered. Serves one as a big meal or two with a side dish.
Make the rice any way you wish but if you have a rice cooker (described for the newbie):
Rinse 1 cup of dried rice in a sink
Add rice to rice cooker
Add 2 cups of water
Press your "cook" button
Pan fry a handful of green peppers, onion and garlic in olive oil
Boil 2 cups of vegetable broth* and the fried veggies in a saucepan
In a shaker bottle (or mixed with a fork in a bowl), mix:
1 cup water and 1/2 cup flour
Then slowly add the flour/water mixture to the 2 cups broth (avoid lumps)
Determine thickness (your preference) and remove from heat
*Broth: If you do not have pre-made vegetable broth on hand, you can mix 1 vegetable bouillon cube with 2 cups of water and boil to get your broth
The Egg Patty
Mix 2 eggs in a bowl
Add 2 cups of mung bean sprouts to the bowl and mix with fork
Fry up a few tablespoons of olive oil in a frying pan and add mixture
Fry each side
Add a cup of rice to a plate
Place your egg patty on top of the rice and pour gravy over it
*Could be (2) servings if served with a side dish
First, when dealing with the spaces in a file name while using the terminal, you can use a back-slash before the space.
File name with spaces.txt
For the terminal:
File name with spaces.txt
Sometimes we run across a downloaded file online that was created by utilizing the winrar multiple-file feature to make a huge file downloadable. A good example would be an ISO image that is more than 1GB in size. The rar program can break up the file into smaller pieces. Example:
and so on
To unrar multiple files into one, first install the unrar program in linux. In this case, I’m assuming you are using Ubuntu or any Debian-based distribution (like Raspbian):
sudo apt install unrar-free
sudo apt install unrar
Then use the unrar command to unrar. Remember to use the before any spaces.
unrar x -e bigiso.part01.rar
This should build the large file back up into its uncompressed state.
