More to the point, it seems parked at an interesting angle!


In Oz we have angle parking: but the angle is always in relation to the kerb. We always park parallel to the road surface.

That's the way they park in France. Really.

And that (95 %) Frenchman should curb his satyrical expressiveness...

Post anyways. I'm more interested in whatever you're going to post than a whale poo storm.

GameDay Spicy Guacamole

Spicy Guacamole:

3 ripe avocados
1 Roma tomato
1 shallot
1 clove garlic
1/2 lime (juiced)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. crushed cumin seed
1/2 tsp. crushed cayenne pepper

Halve avocados lengthwise. Remove seed by embedding your chopping knife and twisting the seed out. Spoon the meat in large chunks into a large serving bowl. Peel and remove the ends of the shallot and garlic. Dice finely. Remove the ends of the tomato. Dice finely. Juice the 1/2 lime.

Add the spices, shallot, garlic, tomato and lime; blend with fork, leaving some chunks.

Serve with tortilla chips, Tequila* Blanco (and limes for the faint of heart). Salt is for frat boys.


* You can ask a guest to bring Margaritas.



Afterward I just might buy a K-3.


P.S. When ripe an avocado is squishy but firm, like a Tom Brady football.

Drive 11 miles West on I-255 from the Jefferson Barracks Bridge you showed us last year. Exit at I-44 / Watson Rd. At Lindbergh Blvd. text me for further homing instructions.
