Hadog Recipe
By Warren Okuma

Hadog is a Korean corndog or a batter coated hotdog covered in chopped up french fries.

1 quart of peanut oil
1 cup yellow cornmeal
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
1 tablespoon of onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 Can of cream-style corn
2 teaspoons garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
3 tablespoon flour, for dredging
hot dogs
Frozen french fries chopped up

Not ingredients, but necessary:
chopsticks, not separated for the stick.

Pour oil into a frying pan or large heavy pot and heat to 375 degrees F or on medium high.

Stab hotdogs with unseparated chopsticks.  Make sure the stick and hotdog fits in pan.

Mix cornmeal, flour, and all the dry ingredients together (save some flour for dredging).  Then add buttermilk and all the wet ingredients together and stir.  Set batter aside and rest for 10 minutes.

Roll each hot dog in the flour you saved.   Flour will help the batter stick to the hotdog.

Fill large drinking glass with batter.  Dip hotdog in batter.  Cover with french fry peices. 

Fry until golden brown.  Place on paper towels.  Wait until cool, then enjoy!

Predictions for 2019
By Warren Okuma

Well, it's a new year, and one should try to guess and plan on what the future holds, here's my fourteen guesses.  I'm not a psychic by the way or a time traveller.

1)  The economy.  It will continue to grow but at a slower pace say less than 4 percent but more than three.  There will be no recession in 2019.
2)  It's going to be a cold winter, so prepare for that even if you don't believe it could happen, snowmaggedons, snowpocalipse or polar vortexes or bomb cyclones happen so do take precautions.
3)  There will not be the "big one" earthquake in California that kills more than one hundred this year.
4)  Politics is going to be crazier and more meaner.  Sit back and get some popcorn.
5)  Stock market is going to lose twenty percent of its value or more if the Federal Reserve continues to raise interest rates.  And the Federal Reserve is going to raise interest rates.
6)  China trade war will continue and escalate.
7)  Democrats will give Trump wall funds, because otherwise they are hosing quite a few of their constituents who work in government and their unions.
8)  North Korea will still be cheating and building nukes.
9)  Iran is still going to be trying to build nukes.
10)  China and the world's economy is going to slow down in general.
11)  Brexit will cause a recession in the UK temporarily, but afterwards, their economy will recover and will be stronger.
12)  It's going to be a good year for movies, if you are Marvel or a Marvel fan...
13)  Japan will not have "the big one" an earthquake that kills more than one hundred this year.
14)  There will be no hurricanes that hit the United States of category 3 or greater.

So bookmark this and see how I did in 2019.  Thanks for reading.
