World's Largest Thermometer, Baker, California

World's Largest Thermometer, Baker, California

Baker, California and read the temperature on the world's largest thermometer. The 134-foot tall gauge is housed near the gateway to Death Valley, where temperatures soared to 134 degrees in 1913. While it's an electronic sign rather than an actual thermometer, it's known as the biggest on the planet.

Quote by~James Dent
A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds
are singing, and the lawn mower is broken.

Domestic cats hate lemons or other citrus scents.
Koala Bears are not bears.
China speak English than in the United States.
Onions have no flavor, only a smell.
Babies that are breastfed are more likely to be slimmer as adults .

If you put a raisin in a fresh glass of champagne, it will rise and fall continuously.

Southern Style Beans and Bacon
2 cups dried pinto beans

2 lbs. seasoning bacon, cut into roughly ½ inch squares (or two regular store packages of bacon, cut into ½ inch pieces)

1 large white or yellow onion, chopped roughly

1 cup chicken or beef stock

3 cups water

Salt and pepper
Place a stockpot over medium heat. Add 2 tbsp bacon drippings or vegetable oil and cook the onions until translucent.Add bacon and cook until most of the bacon pieces have a decent color. You don’t have to make sure it’s “done”, we’re going to be boiling it for a while.Drain most, but not all of the fat from the mixture. Add salt and pepper. You’ll want to add far more than you think you’re going to need, as the beans will soak most of the seasoning into themselves.Add remaining ingredients, bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, 2 to 4 hours or until beans are tender. Check frequently after 1 hour to ensure that the liquid is still covering the beans. If not, add just enough to cover or they’ll burn.If the beans are almost ready and there is still a lot of liquid left in the mix, remove the lid and increase the heat by just a bit to allow the excess liquid to evaporate.
Serve hot, garnished with fresh chopped onion.
