Here is the perfect Easter meal I will start with the most important part the Ham

1 (8 pound) bone-in shank ham
 4 cups water, or as needed
 1/2 cup honey/ molasses/maple syrup
 1/2 cup brown sugar
 2 tablespoons liquid smoke flavoring
 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F (135 degrees C). Place ham in a roasting pan. Pour in water to a 2 inch depth. Cover with a tight fitting lid, or cover with aluminium foil.

Bake for 6 to 8 hours in the preheated oven (all day or all night). Remove from the oven, pour off drippings and set aside.Debone ham, removing any excess fat and set to the side for the baked beans, and return to the roasting pan.

Skim fat from the top of the drippings, and discard. In a small bowl, mix one cup of the drippings with honey/ molasses/maple syrup, brown sugar, liquid smoke, Worcestershire sauce and cloves. Pour this over the ham, cover and return to the oven. Remaining drippings may be discarded or reserved for other uses.

Bake for another 30 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

Now for the baked beans

24 ounces dry white beans
 excess ham fat from roasted ham about 1 lb worth cut into 1" cubes
 1 onion, chopped
 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
 1/2 cup honey/ molasses/maple syrup
 1 teaspoon salt
 1 cup water
 1/2 cup ketchup
 2 tablespoons prepared mustard

In a large pot over high heat, combine the beans with water to cover and bring to a boil for 10 minutes. Remove from heat but let sit for 1 hour. Drain beans and place them in a slow cooker. Add the ham fat, onion, brown sugar, cup honey/ molasses/maple syrup, salt and water.

Mix well, cover and cook on high setting for 4 to 5 hours, stirring occasionally. During the final hour of cooking, add the ketchup and mustard. Mix well and serve.

Now for something better than cornbread.

1/2 pound butter, melted
 2 (15 ounce) cans whole kernel corn
 2 (15 ounce) cans creamed corn
 2 (8.5 ounce) packages corn bread mix
 2 ounces sour cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

In a mixing bowl, combine butter, whole corn, cream corn, corn muffin mix and sour cream. Fold all ingredients together, pour into 4 quart casserole dish. Bake for 1 hour.

Let stand for about ten minutes for it to harden enough to serve like cornbread.

Is Affirmative Action racist

This is a question that i have not seen asked here before and would like to get some other views on.

A few quick points on Affirmative Action.

1. Affirmative Action is a process of giving advantages to minorities.
2. Affirmative Action is not meant to end racism, but to help minorities gain the same benefits of the majority.
3. Affirmative Action sometime gives preference to less qualified individuals due to them being a minority.

Here is a quick statement on why Affirmative Action is not racist.

"Most of the objections I hear focus on race. The charge is often made that anything that takes race into account must be racist. One problem with this argument is that it is simply not possible to remedy a problem based on race while at the same time acting as if race doesn't matter. This means that affirmative action of course must take race explicitly into account. This doesn't mean that being a person of color is all you need in order to get the job or be accepted into college. What it does mean is that race is considered as one of a long list of criteria, with the goal of doing something, however imperfectly, to respond to the problem of racism as both a current and historical problem."

Then the argument that Affirmative Action is racist

"if diversity were really the goal, then preferences would be given on the basis of unusual characteristics, not on the basis of race. The underlying assumption -- that only minorities can add certain ideas or perspectives -- is offensive not merely because it is untrue but also because it implies that all minorities think a certain way."

These points and several others can be found all over the internet.

My Stance is that Affirmative Action is racist based on the facts that it seems to say that minorities can still not receive the same advantages of the majority without it. I also disagree with giving preference based a on standing in a community wither minority or majority. I also believe that Affirmative Action helps promote racism by allowing people to claim somebody only got where they are because of it.

I wish to share an anecdote that demonstrates one instance of AA harming the person it was supposed to help. In my first year out of dental school, I worked for a dentist who told be about a previous associate he had once employed. He had hired a black dentist, believing it would help draw patients from the local black community. He was confused as to why his anticipated influx of new patients never happened. Then one day a black patient asked to speak privately with the owner/doctor. The patient expressed dissatisfaction over having been "passed off" to the black dentist. He stated that he didn't feel comfortable being seen by a dentist who "probably got into dental school on some program".
Needless to say, the owner/dentist was flabbergasted. He never anticipated that the local black community would hold a prejudiced point of view against the black dentist. Obviously, not all felt that way, but it was present to at least some extent, and it was prevalent enough that the anticipated influx of new black clientele never came to pass.
For all we know, that black dentist might have the most brilliant dental student in his graduating class. Yet even in the case of this particular black patient, the assumption was otherwise.

Well I have been working on this for about a week now I have redesigned some of the webpages and made some more. I do plan on adding links on the skills and spells pages to their connected pages I just have not decided how I want to do this yet.

I think it looks a lot better and easier to follow. The links at the top are complete so you can get to any of the pages from there, until I decide how to put in the links.

Any feed back on this would be nice. Anything you would like to see added or anything you do not like about it.

I am going to take some time off from working on this as I have a test in network security coming up but I should be back to this by the weekend or shortly there after.

When I do come back I plan on working on the character page so if anyone has any ideas of how to set that up to make it easy to use and look nice let me know.

Captain America 2 Spoiler

or at least it was

I can't believe they let the Sitwell thing out in the episode. It was the biggest surprise of the movie.

The only reason I decided against cannibal is because to me they seemed more interested in catching an animal like the panther than eating the already wounded Jasper. It seems that the natives were only interested in following the gang once they had stolen their food.
