"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

  • Cats rule. Dogs drool.
In honor of one of our more idiotic Lords:

Soak a pound of black eyed beans overnight. A hint of bicarbonate in the water will help soften them.
Puree two tins of peeled plum tomatoes.
Chop one large onion, very fine, and two strips (or more) of bacon. Fry gently with garlic, chili pepper, and a teaspoon of paprika. Drain the fat - no one likes fatty beans. I keep it for frying eggs - you may not wish to do this.
Rinse the beans and boil them for 10 minutes.

Combine everything in a pot. Add a good slug of maple syrup and an equal amount of whiskey, along with some freshly ground black pepper. Bake at 180C for 3 hours, stirring occasionally. One hour before it is ready, stab two large potatoes multiple times with a fork and pop them in the oven.

Enjoy. If you feel the need for an eructation, the direction of the House of Lords is readily available.
