    First of all thank you. Second of all you should never judge yourself like that. It is G-d's job to judge us. And you do not know who is his favorite. It says that world to come is open to anybody, not just Jews, or just christians as some may believe, or just Muslims as some other may think. No, world to come is for everybody who is righteous. Do good deeds, behave like a good person should and you are one of the favorits.

    Blessings to and yours.

    Hanukkah for me is a celebration of the impossible. I don't sincerely believe a single pot of oil could burn for eight days. That could only be possible by the grace of G-D.

    I am going to light a candle starting Tuesday, and will have a prayer for you and yours. hope you will accept a nice well thought out prayer from a Quaker.

    “delivering the strong into the hands of the weak, the many into the hands of the few ... the wicked into the hands of the righteous.”

    God of Abraham, I hope you trust and help our friend Charlie, and bless his house. I am not one of your favorite people, but I hope you see my candle, and take care of my friend this year.

    Thank you, thank you. How are you? How's life?

    As far as Chanukah, I personally believe that this Holiday can be celebrated by anybody who believes in light over darkness, good over bad, kindness over hatred. Because that's the miracle of Chanukah.
    Happy Chanukah.

    Wanted to wish you and your family a happy Haunakah. I always like seeing your posts on Discuss Cooking. I took some time off posting, but I really respect the effort you and a couple of others do to keep this place running, and have it be the cool community it is.

    Chag Urim Sameach for this years festival of lights.

    Yeah, MRE's aren't pretty. And I'm not surprised. I've got a friend that works with this, and a lot of work goes into it, not like a normal recipe. Has to be stable under various awful conditions, reheated easy, and taste the same? I camp quite a bit, so I am conversant with what is going on with portable rations. Generally US army rations have been tried BTW at several scout camps. They do tend to go for the 'reheatable liquid included' package other than a dehydrated (which I think gives better meals but requires boiling water, aka a separate heat source)

    you'd b surprised that American army supplies do not,look much better. As the matter of fact when we first came we visited Salvation Army a lot. They had plenty of army supply to give away. We could never understand why Americans did not want to take them. We loved them, remind us about Russian army supply.

    Damn, and I thought those looked rather ugly.

    No, not me. That looks much better than what we had to eat. I served between 79-81, the meat supplies we were getting were put in cold storage were marked 1957-1958-1959.

    Did you have to eat this monstosity?

    Rations of Soviet and Russian Forces during the Cold War-Part 2

    I was close to making a project of recreating soviet army rations for my Russian friends, but with better ingredients and, well just OK. I doubt that is a useful project, they are really awful, sorry you had to eat that. I mean I could with those ingredients make something nice , but it is mostly something I'd shudder even to look at. I get your dislike of barley.
