A time to cook, and a time to refrain

first_img Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Sponsored Content And, I can pinpoint the exact day and time that I decided to put away the pots and pans and “go modern.”It was the day that I watched as a five-quart, blue speckled, enamel stock pot of highly seasoned butterbeans slid down and off the hood of the car and crashed on the street with a platter of fried chicken right behind it.I knew the folks at Brundidge United Methodist Church would not believe a story like that. I knew I couldn’t go to the homecoming potluck dinner empty handed. I didn’t even try.I went straight to Crowe’s Fried Chicken, bought two boxes of chicken livers, put them in a covered dish and presented my offering.Folks bragged on what I had brought. They didn’t ask if I had personally fried the chicken livers or how long it took or what the recipe was. They just “cleaned the platter.”Now, I’ve always been told that you take what you learn and apply it elsewhere. I’ve applied what I learned that day to everyday situations. It matters no more if the iron frying pan has rusted, the Corning ware has broken, if I’ve misplaced the lid to the pressure cooker or if the grease can or the flour bin is empty.I have a reputation with chicken livers.People expect that of me.

I don’t care whether it costs more or less to eat out than it does to cook at home.

Thankfully, I have one of those behind me this year.The way I figure it is that I’ve done enough cooking in my lifetime. The Bible says there’s a season for everything—a time to cook and a time to refrain from cooking or something like that. I’m a believer.

England’s Adams wins Reid Trophy in play-off

first_imgFull results can be found here England’s Hugh Adams held his nerve to win the Reid Trophy on the fourth hole of a sudden death play-off at Reading Golf Club.The 13-year-old from Hagley Golf Club in Worcestershire defeated Spain’s Angel Ayora with a par and said: “It just felt great. I was just excited to lift up the trophy.“I didn’t come here expecting to win, I’m only 13 and I’ve still got another year so I was just trying to play well.”However, when he got within four shots of the lead after two rounds he was determined to go for it – and secured his place in the play-off with his three-under 67. It gave him a level par total and a tie with Ayora who closed with 66.“I tried to get off to a quick start,” he said. “I didn’t really know anything until about the 14th or 15th, but when I birdied the 16th I knew I had a chance.“Everything just started to go my way, I had a couple of nice bounces, took advantage of my luck and holed some nice putts.”Adams actually had a 10-footer on the 18th to win outright, but it slid past the hole and he was into the play-off.He’d been involved in sudden death once before and although he lost that time – on the eighth hole – the experience helped him.“I was quite relaxed, quite calm, but definitely determined,” he said.The first three play-off holes were halved in par, but on the fourth Ayora’s drive went behind a tree and his next just slipped out of bounds.Adams, who plays for his county, has been in good form this season, with high finishes at both the Midlands U16 championship and the Douglas Johns Trophy. “It’s been going well,” he said.Four other boys were in the top ten: Stuart Reis (Welwyn Garden City), Manato Nakatini (Hendon), Harley Smith (The Rayleigh Club) and Luke Perkins (Frilford Heath).

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (Feb. 7, 2015)–With an eye catching move around the far turn, Finnegans Wake rallied from far off the pace to take Saturday’s Grade II, $200,000 San Marcos Stakes by one length while covering 1 ¼ miles on turf in 2:00.88.Previously based in the Midwest and fresh off a pair of Grade II stakes wins in the Hollywood Turf Cup at Del Mar Nov. 27 and the San Gabriel Stakes Jan. 3, Finnegans Wake notched his third consecutive win for trainer Peter Miller and owners Donnegal Racing and Rockingham Ranch.“The horse ran great,” said Miller. “Victor gave him a tremendous ride.

This horse is unbelievable. He runs, he tries hard. He really likes it here in California…distance is never a problem. I thought last time, going a mile and one eighth was a bit short for him but he took it well. Today, it was even better for him.”Pacesetter Diamond Bachelor, under Martin Pedroza sped to an early charge and went on to open a commanding lead. The Patrick Biancone trainee held on through the stretch but ducked out from a left handed whip late and moved into path of third place finisher Power Ped and was disqualified to fourth.Power Ped, ridden by Flavien Prat and trained by Neil Drysdale paid $8.80 and $5.60 to place.Neil Drysdale’s other entry, Power Foot, ridden by Kieren Fallon paid $7.40 to show.The fractions on the race were 24.01, 48.27, 1:12.56 and 1:36.40.First post time for a nine-race card at Santa Anita on Sunday is at 12:30 p.m. Admission gates open at 10:30 a.m.–30–last_img read more
