While I am not the world’s greatest cook and the recipe below is only a variant of the one on the back of the bag, many people like my bean soup. So here it is:
One of the nice things about soups is the ingredients may be varied. Capitalize on this to stretch the food budget. If the celery is getting soft, chop it up and add it. (Save celery leaves, freeze them and use them to season chicken soup and stuffing.) If the market has mushrooms at a good price, add them. Dried beans keep a long time, never pay full price, only buy when on sale and store in glass jars.
a 20 oz. Bag 15 or 16 soup mix (I usually go with either HamBeens or Hammy’s brands) I never use the flavor packets enclosed.
Some of these are already in both of the above mixes, add the following to stretch the recipe:
1 cup pinto beans
1/2 cup northern beans
1/2 cup navy beans
1/2 cup black eyed peas
1 1/2 to 2 pounds smoked pork neck bones (Smoked ham hocks or ham if you prefer. Personally, I like the neck bones the best.)
1 1/2 cups diced onions the fresher and the stronger the better
2 cups chopped onions, fresh canned or even canned for chili
the juice of one lemon (2-3 tablespoons)
2 cans of diced tomatoes, optionally diced tomatoes for chili
2 cloves of chopped garlic
1 1/2 teaspoons of chili powder (if you don’t use canned tomatoes for chili)

There are certain things that should not be done. Then there are certain that are note worthy because they should not have been done and were anyways. This video certainly should fall under the later category.
Putting Special Emphasis on the Word “Service” for Postal Service
While listening to an episode of WaitWait… Don’t Tell Me!, I heard an interesting story about a letter delivery. When dug deeper on the web, I found several similar occurrences. Read on for three amazing deliveries. I wish the USPS were as dedicated as some the postmasters mentioned below.
Scott, from Scotland … aged about 60/70?? … corner of Tiniroto Road (almost). By a bridge. Has a Japanese wife — who may be older but looks about 20 … also has a daughter, about 3. Loves history … Good sense of humour … tells a good tale … Rural delivery area, sort of south east of Gisborne.
