------------------------------------------------



Today, we continue offering albums by Thirteenth Floor Elevators, one of the psychedelic era’s most electrified acid bands. Beginning their career in Texas, they came to San Francisco, California, in the latter part of the 1960’s and excited audiences with their crazed style of rock-and-roll.  The band’s second album, entitled, “Easter Everywhere,” came out in November 1967 and was an excellent sophomore effort, probably, their all-time best. Please go to Amazon.com right now and BUY this stellar album by using the convenient link above!

The Infamous Castro Brothers of Cleveland, Ohio

Bakersfield, CA, 05-15-2013 W: Last week, I think I was shocked like most the rest of the nation when a long-lost and feared dead young woman, Amanda Berry, was found in the home of a local citizen ten long years after she disappeared.  Ms. Berry was somehow able to make an opening in the locked-up tight home on Seymour Avenue and when she saw a man returning to his home next door, she began pleading with him to give her aid and others still in the house.  The neighbor, a black man named Charles Ramsey, had just returned home from an outing to McDonald’s and heard the young woman screaming for aid.  When he went to see what the problem was, she explained to him who she was and that she had been missing for years.  Without even thinking about it, he found a way to break into the home, free the woman, and in turn her comrades—two other young women and a child.   

McDonald’s Golden Arches

Mr. Ramsey gave Ms. Berry his phone so she could call for help and soon, the Cleveland Police Department arrived on scene.  Actually, the other women remained inside and the police managed to find a way to enter the home.  We must note that the house was enterable only through the rear door and that the windows were blacked out, all done to keep prying eyes from seeing or hearing anything.  The homeowner had gone out and somehow, Amanda found a way to make herself heard and the rest is history.  The owner of the home and two of his brothers were arrested and taken into custody, the charges piling up against the three of them, most of all for kidnapping, sexual assault, and God knows what else the poor girls underwent while held prisoner within the modest suburban home. 

Cleveland, Ohio

Mr. Ramsey informed the media that he knew something was definitely wrong when a “pretty young white woman rushed into the arms of a black man.”  Sadly, I guess that is true in some parts of the nation but let’s face it: good people of all colors do good deeds every single day and the fact that he put himself on the spot by kicking in part of the door so she could wriggle herself to freedom says a lot about the character of Mr. Ramsey. 

Cleveland’s Hero, Charles Ramsey

One can only wonder what the hell has happened to the United States when we hear more and more of these stories, I mean; we had the girl here in California a few years ago,—J.C. Dugard—she and her daughter—fathered by the rapist—suffered confinement for more than eighteen years.  The man who held her had a criminal record and the jury convicted both him and his wife and sentenced them to lifetime prison terms.  There are many more of which, I am sure we have never heard and God knows how many innocent women, children, and others are in captivity in our nation at any given time.  I think it behooves President Obama to make this one of his most important priorities and to set aside the looming healthcare disaster coming on January 01, 2014.   Granted, I think we need to have healthcare reform because it is becoming more and more difficult to cover the needs of our employees but let’s face it, Obamacare is NOT about providing healthcare, and it’s about taking control of our lives.   It pains me to say this because I am a good Democrat, have always been one, but we all know that Obamacare is going to be disastrous and people are going to take to the streets demanding answers. 

Back to these poor women, it is difficult for me to think of not only Amanda Berry and her daughter but also the other two, both young women as well: Gina Dejesus and Michelle Knight were there for almost as long as Amanda was.  Let’s see, Amanda Berry was 16 when the sicko, Ariel Castro, snatched her off the street on April 21, 2003.  Dejesus, 14 years old when abducted, disappeared a year later.  Michelle Knight disappeared at age 21 on August 23, 2002, and all have been held in the house since until their rescue.  Their captors were three brothers who apparently were musicians and their neighbors report they noticed nothing odd or different about the home.   All I can do is to think about my kids and grandkids and how it would absolutely KILL me if some bastard like Mr. Castro grabbed one of my children and held them in the same way.  As time comes out and more is reported, we will have more answers, I just hope that none of these men were supposed to have probation or parole officers visiting them and much like the Californian girl who was found a couple of years ago, and who went undetected.

Friends, I am sure this sort of behavior has gone on for a long, long time, I am sure that many of these poor women, children, and others have lived horrible lives, held prisoner in a dreadful places and circumstances, most of them found dead when finally discovered.  Our country is sinking deeper into depravity and when I hear our leaders saying that the Gays can marry one another, it upsets me.  I may be a liberal but I am also a faithful Catholic and Catholicism does not say this sort of behavior is “okay.”  The fact that the man who kidnapped these poor girls is a bus driver for the local school system that should shock the living hell out of all of us!  We need to do something to make sure that these sorts of problems never happen again, that anyone who can hold another human being in bondage, chained up in his basement, he should be summarily shot and his body given to the crows.   We will hear more and more of this horrendous story as the days continue going by, it’s dreadful, something must be done to the perps of these heinous crimes, our nation needs help and needs it now!

All right, amigos, our discussion of today’s events has gone by, it is time for us to make another frosting with which, to frost our repertoire of cakes.  Buttercream frosting is among the absolute best topping for a cake, as there is nothing tastier than REAL butter.  Many of the big grocery chains containing bakeries usually use a mix of either butter or some sort of margarine-butter blend and shortening.  The shortening is fine because it stands up under heat whereas butter breaks the higher the outside temperature.  However, shortening’s flavor coats one’s tongue and after the first few bites, all one tastes is the shortening!   Use butter if you can or mix in a small amount of shortening to give it body but never ever use ALL shortening as this puts you on the same level as a low-end grocery store chain!  Arriba!

(#1450) CHOCOLATE BUTTERCREAM FROSTING

 


Virtually anyone with an oven with a functioning thermostat has the ability to bake a cake; however, the real test is in making homemade frostings and icings as that is what makes a baker a “baker.”  This is an excellent chocolate buttercream frosting, one that the perceptive baker can transform into a White Chocolate Buttercream Frosting simply by inserting melted white chocolate chips and Torani’s White Chocolate Bianco syrup—simply amazing!

Yield:  1 quart +  / Mis-en-place: 20 minutes:
 

 


Qty.
Measure
Item
Other
1.5
Cups
Soft butter
 
2.5
#
Powdered sugar
 
6
Ounces
Cocoa or chocolate powder
 
1
Teaspoon
Salt
 
1
Tablespoon
Vanilla extract
 
1
Tablespoon
Orange extract
 
.5
Cup
Half-n-Half
 

 


Method:

1.     Mis-en-place: have everything ready with which to work! Using a Kitchen Aid mixer equipped with a paddle attachment, beat the butter at medium speed until it become light and fluffy.  Then, add the chocolate, salt, vanilla, and orange extract, beating well at medium speed to blend everything well.  Stop, scrape down the mixing bowl and the paddle, and commence beating again for about 30 seconds.  

2.     Next, begin scaling in the powdered sugar along the side of the bowl—slowly, gently, and patiently—until the mixture incorporates it. Stop mixing, scrape down both the bowl and paddle, and commence the mixing process once again.  It will take some time as it will stiffen and then lighten as the paddle continues rotating around the inside of the bowl.  As it does so, begin scaling in the half-and-half along the sides to lighten the frosting taking care to add just as much as it needs, possibly NOT all of it depending upon time of the year, the humidity, and the kitchen temperature.  Just add the cream until the frosting is light, fluffy, and ready to spread.

3.     Spread the frosting with the aid of a rubber spatula or a spreader always taking care to dip it into warm water and then wiping it off as you spread the frosting.  The ideal way in which, to spread the frosting is to apply almost all of it in several mounds atop the sheet cake or individually atop cupcakes.  If doing a sheet cake, spread these mounds out and away from one another until they intersect but NEVER spread the frosting back in upon itself!  Doing it that way is a sure fire way to incorporate cake crumbs back into the frosting, nothing anyone in the business considers to be “professional.”

4.     Always use it at room temperature and refrigerate leftovers in a covered container.  It will remain fresh for 2-3 days; after that use it or lose it.  

My Chocolate Buttercream Frosting is good for everything from cakes, brownies, or for whatever else you might have need of it.  Keep this recipe in your personal recipe books as you will be using it repeatedly.

THE PSYCHEDELIC SOUNDS OF THE 13TH FLOOR ELEVATORS

          Friends, tomorrow is HUMP DAY so be prepared, we always come up with good things on the middle day of the week.  I also want to urge all of you who may know of things going on next-door that do not seem quite right.  We need to put an end to the abduction of our children, our women, and anyone else we know is in some sort of danger.  Life is rapidly becoming cheaper and cheaper in this nation, the more our country becomes lulled to the atrocities going on around us, the worse things become for not only the adults but especially for our children.  I recall working with some people over the course of my early years in restaurants who told me debatable things that later, I thought I should have taken to the police but by then, it was too late.  We owe each other a bond of humanity and if anyone suspects something happening anywhere around them do something about it—I beg you!   Tomorrow: we will talk about the movie, “Pain and Gain;” if you have not seen it yet, by all means please do so, it is a very good movie and it shows us just who the typical inmate locked up in state prisons across the country are!                                                             

EASTER EVERYWHERE  

Anyhow, let us close with this impassioned plea—please leave some comments and/or become a follower. What's more, why not spend some money and purchase an album by either Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention or Thirteenth Floor Elevators and/or buy a cookbook from Amazon.com—we want to make some money here so help us out by buying something!  Allied with them, we are pleased to market their merchandise!  Amazon.com is one of the greatest—if not the ultimate greatest!—online department stores in which, one can find almost everything on the planet.  We love them and they love us and we want all of you to visit them daily, take advantage of their deals on everything from kitchen equipment to cookbooks, CDs, DVDs, and everything else a person could want.  Everything you buy from them puts money into our pockets, which allows us to keep this fine blog up-and-running 24/7/365!  God bless America and God bless Amazon.com!

Muchas gracias, buen amigos!
