It's different when you don't have a choice. That other Canadian just prefers nut juice. Oh, and Windows



I guess you sort of have a point.
I would prefer windows to the hotel room I stayed in Manila. The whole hotel had no rooms with windows.

Maybe they had experienced Windows ME and thought it better to be without.

No, none of those either. Actually I do not recall seeing any apples in Manila, except for those that come from a large company of the same name.

This is a video of a B29 bomber taking a maintenance check flight. To see how big the plane is, skip to the 7:20 mark as is passes a Fed Ex plane on the tarmac.

Friend of mine's father flew those during the war.

That isn't just any B29, that's FIFI!

I snagged some shots of her five years ago, at Paine Field in Everett, Washington.

Well poop, the Cardinals rally and home opener have been moved from tomorrow to Friday due to a forecast of rain.
It damn sure better rain or there will be some unhappy fans who took tomorrow off work for the game and/or pregame festivities.

Rain stops a football game?

I'm going to come right out and say it:

All this talk of chowing on tube steaks and drinking nut milk is making me feel uneasy.... But each to their own

No bacon today, Bob - nor indeed the day before

Monday brunch was bacon, fried egg, fried mushrooms, baked beans (I added a little Tabasco to mine), fried tomatoes and toast (cooked by my Mum). The bacon was streaky, crispy and plentiful.

Yesterday, I made an improvised "Panackelty" (local dish - po' folks food again )... Layers of corned beef (our tinned corned beef, that is), diced onions, diced carrot, green beans (just for a change, and because I had some spare), and two layers of thin sliced potatoes, drenched in beef gravy with lots of pepper and some minced garlic, cooked in the oven for an 90 minutes. 'Twas delicious. Enough for four, demolished by three before the clock struck one.

Today, I cooked bratwurst, British-chip-shop-style chips (no, not fries), and peas, with a home-made curry ketchup for the sausages - drained tinned Italian tomatoes, onions fried in curry powder and hot paprika, minced garlic, red wine vinegar and honey, blended smooth and reduced over heat. Clean plates all round

Tomorrow, we'll be eating light. My cousin is coming over in the evening and treating us to an Indian food delivery from our favourite local restaurant / take-away. So, maybe a slice of toast in the a.m. and a sandwich or soup for lunch...

No tube-steaks, no nut milk
