Another day, another "Family Values" Christianist GOP child molester...

And to think people are still so stupid as to leave their kids at "Sunday School" to be victimized by these creatures.

Prosecutors allege that this scumbag has been molesting kids for as many as 55 years! It seems that the perv and his wife taught Sunday School for years. I've always thought that these scumbags gravitated towards churches and Christianism to hunt for their victims. If they get caught all they have to do to get away with it in their churches is to say (a la Josh Duggar or the Catholic church) "I have sinned and have repented" and *poof!* it goes away. I'll bet there's a huge cover-up that has been going on over this guy in Georgia. Disgusting! The story starts below...


Forrmer Republican Party chair for Cobb County, Joseph Russell Dendy, has been indicted by a grand jury on 13 counts of child molestation.

After being arrested in May for allegedly molesting two boys, ages 4 and 12, during multiple visits to his home, the handed down multiple categories of charges. The 71-year-old formally faces four counts of child molestation, four counts of first-degree cruelty to children, three counts of enticing a child for indecent purposes, and one count each of aggravated sexual battery and aggravated child molestation, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

He is being held in the Cobb County jail without bond after a hearing where prosecutors alleged Dendy’s molestation spanned 55 years.

Dendy and his wife taught Sunday School at their church for years and Mr. Dendy worked as a campaign manager for former State Rep. Roger Hines. Prior to the indictment, Hines called Dendy’s character “impeccable.”

Today's Recipe: Peach Preserves

Our local Shaw's supermarket is having a special offer on peaches today, $0.77/per pound so I decided to make my favorite toast topping, Peach Preserves. The method and recipe follow. It's really easy and your family will really love it.

As always, assemble your ingredients. Mise en place...

Remove the stones and chop your peaches. No need to remove the skins

Mash 1 cup of the peaches in the bottom of the pan and add the rest of the peaches

Cook over medium-low heat, stirring often until the peaches are liquidy and boiling

To help this along, I used my immersion blender to puree some of the fruit. Not all, mind you, as we like some peach chunks in our preserves. 

Measure out 6 cups of peaches and return to the pot. You should have just 6 cups or just a tiny bit more. 

Add the sugar and bring to a boil over medium heat stirring often. The mixture should return to the boil immediately after you stir it. Remember. It should boil!

This recipe calls for 2 ounces of dry pectin. SureJell pectin comes in 1.75 oz boxes, so make sure to get two boxes and weigh the pectin carefully. 

Stir in the pectin gradually, bring back to a full boil and boil for 1 minute exactly. Remove from heat and pour into sterilized jars. Put sterilized lids on them and process in a water bath for 10 minutes

When they come out dry off the lids, place on a rack or towel and cover with a clean towel to keep away drafts. As they cool you should hear a "pop" sound indicating that the seal is made. If the lid does not pop, the seal is not made and you must use the preserves within 3 weeks while storing them in the fridge. 

Some lucky folks are going to get something delicious!

Make sure you have a nice piece of toast and a cup of coffee to try out your preserves. Yum! This recipe is not too sweet so it's a great topping for toast or biscuits, or even a spoonful or two on ice cream!
