Get some knowledge and help – The Oxford Eagle

Years ago, while working at Ole Miss Campus, the home of Thanksgiving, the hero mom “Gart” spent me making pumpkin pie from scratch—starting with real pumpkin, making pie crust out of dough, rolling it and all—sip of the week Sip of wine, laughter And he laughed, so much fun, and it was the best pumpkin pie I’ve ever eaten…besides pumpkin pie.

The mother was an excellent cook, preparing a variety of meals, ingredients mostly from the large garden of her mother’s and father’s (grandfather and grandmother’s) farm a few miles out of town within sight of the mighty Mississippi River in southeastern Missouri – and to this day you can’t eat most The meals I cooked because no one could make them bloated like I did.

Among the many items on the “I Can’t Eat” menu was an apple pie altered from green, tart apples on the farm for June, a crisp, flaky, crust made from scratch…until Scotland, September 2009, when Khabib’s mother, almost a Scottish mother, was Like Gert, he made a green apple pie in a tree in their backyard that looked and tasted like Gert…unreal, but okay.

Mom has never looked at a recipe book for anything she cooks because she does it so often. Now that I’ve made pumpkin pie with her years ago, should I want to make another pie from scratch – I’ll have to study her recipe book, make a list from A to Z of what to do, search the internet, and U- videos tube, talk to my friends in the kitchen, gather the ingredients, and it would take so many hours of worrying that I probably wouldn’t.

Working on a large number of my projects requires knowledge and experience, such as ripping off my 1971 MGB-GT purchase, and over the years I’ve found people like Moss Motors in Vermont with extensive knowledge of these British cars for parts and advice that has helped me tremendously, as well as Just doing it myself, so what took hours the first time, can do again in half the time – and the MG I’ve owned since new, 1971 to 2022, can leave me a bit of a fool to remember how I did things – like rebuilding The right rear drum brake the tire shop did many years ago, it’s all wrong, took me dozens of hours of research to figure out the right way – but I can do the left side now in a few hours because of that experience.

When I bought my 1964 Land Rover Series IIA in August 2014, I knew nothing of these British classics, but after sourcing parts virtually from all over the world, picking expert heads from Canada, England, Scotland and many other global places, I found Rover guys in Oregon and Vermont with a large selection of used and new parts, and because that was all they did – saved me hours upon hours of time and fatal mistake with their knowledge and experience.

Last winter I had problems with the furnace in my house built in 2000, I asked St John’s office manager, Terry Richmond, who we used for such repairs and he said her realtor’s husband Basil loved Shane Esque’s work, made an appointment, and for years His expertise, within an hour Shane sorted out the problem, new circuit board, done, fixed!

In 2015, the back wall of the fridge was frozen—hours of research, ordering a defrost timer, heater, thermostat, and hot air gun for defrosting, placing the parts on April 28, 2015—and it fixed! Then in the last couple of weeks the back freezer wall froze again, ag, thought it was a defrost heater but got tired of these projects and said, “Enough – I’m not doing this again!”

So, on Monday, July 11th, my friends at Sears, Melissa, and Avery are going to buy a new GE refrigerator from their inventory! But first, put all of this in God’s hands because I was so frustrated and in need of help. Right away, Melissa said they had no side-by-side fridge that they could sell other than Whirlpool for $1,600, plus taxes, plus $85 to bring home, get rid of the old fridge, and the GE I wanted, though cheaper, couldn’t Be here until July 28!

In front of Melissa, praying loudly to God for help, and bam – Tim Aldridge, N. Walks for Wednesday, July 13 at 8:30 a.m.

I was pretty sure the defrost heater was shot, and with all his knowledge and experience, within an hour Tim replaced the defrost heater, thawed the thickest, and fixed it!

And since 1988 when I moved to Oxford to work at Ole Miss Campus, completing my Ph.D., I found a friend and mentor Bub Brannan who was always there for me and helped me a lot all these years with his knowledge and experience!
