King Crab, Steak and Grilled Corn a la Mushy. This whole meal was inspired by this guy in Tennessee by the name of Mushy. He cooks things his way and most times that is the best way. Whenever you nail a system -stick with it.
Oh did I forget to mention that I ordered the things anyway for 18.99 total - 8.99 for the set and 9.99 for shipping - funny huh?

Little Wing. This young woman is so full of energy and life that she must reek of excitement and thrill. Her stories about her adventures her jokes her recollections from her past are all delivered with the most sincere charm and wit. She is truly a "rockin blogger".
This guy almost makes me want to give up all the good things I enjoy -meat, fat and dairy. He is a prolific vegan creator with some of the most creative dishes I have seen. He makes his dishes so attractive and so inviting that they break all of my stereotypes of veganism, he rocks because of his total commitment to his food, Vincent at Veganimprov is inspirational to me.
Pinknest is prolific as well. This woman gets around. Not only does she hit all the best spots but the new and old alike and she writes about them with such aplomb and provides photos of the food and ambiance with such ease that you feel like you are sitting right there with her and her friends - plus she is a great cook and an astounding baker - if you want to live vicariously through anyone she is your meal ticket.
Chel over at Chels Puddles of thoughts for being an awesome mom and I am guessing an awesome wife, she sure says she loves her husband a lot so thats such a nice thing to be around. She just seems to take care of things.
Lastly but not least the opinions and rectums guy Buffalodickdy. The food competition miester of the north. A "steel man" that can throw down with the pots and pans appropriately enough. An award seeking and award winning member of a barbeque team, an all around good guy and a sensitive soul at that.
So there you have it - please keep your acceptance speeches short we have only a limited time slot before everybody loves raymond has to run several episodes back to back!

I am on the cusp of virgo and libra but I feel like more of a libra at least during some years I am libra longer any way libra has had some doozies lately....
LibraYour old issues deserve to be where all old issues belong: in the past. Do not try to hold on to water as it flows under the bridge -- you'll just end up getting all wet (not to mention frustrated). Time moves forward, and you are meant to go along with it! It's true that looking back can give you insight about the mistakes you have made, but you must let a certain amount of time pass by before you can achieve that 20/20 hindsight. It's too soon right now.

Oh i FORGOT for two semesters or so (equals about a year and a half and minimum three bodies per day) I photographed dead bodies for the medical investigator of the state of NM as a work study job - only sucpicious deaths - It helped pay for school and most people "freaked" about the subjects. there is more to this story but I dont feel like typing.
This is so stupid to me.....what does any of this have to do with NOW? WE ALL have feathers to put in our caps, we have all done good things and bad things what is the point?
I live in NYC - I have lived here since 1985 I have worked for all the major record labels and various magazines as a stylist, art director or artist consultant - all freelance, I even did a staff stint at conde nast which was weird by itself. I have sold my face and body parts as a model for photos back when I was more athletic for bicycle magazines and assorted other sportsy things. I have hosted and performed in many poetry events resulting in a cabaret type show that did gigs all over the place including one silly little show in coney island and another for some italian guys with shiny suits and matching cars (this was a scary one). But like I said this means nothing now.
I have travelled quite a bit but I have never been to egypt or russia or a few other places as well, I was in morroco once for only a short time but I got so scared I had to leave right away it seemed like some creepy fellas that I had spotted in marseille had followed us to morroco and I was having none of that. I have been to most of the states except washington, alaska and hawaii.
I have been married once and divorced once. honesty is the best policy - i cheated on my my wife - if you really have to know. I then later went on a "baby mission" The result is that I have a child out of wedlock that lives with me. I have had several long term relationships and countless fleeting and meaningless relationships, I can remember everyone.
Now I cook. I invent recipes.... give me a taste and I can tell you whats in it.... I cant arrange food on a plate to save my soul.
Whats my point?

LibraWherever you go today, try to elevate the atmosphere by flirting up a storm! Even if you are already in a relationship or are not in the mood to begin a new one anytime soon, there's no reason not to amp up your charm and make someone feel special. Do not worry that you are making some sort of promise you have no intention of keeping. As long as you keep things vague and G-rated, flirting is totally harmless -- and it always puts a smile on people's faces.

these are the choices
this is what I have
Well I dropped it off to get repaired since I did get the "extended warranty" the one they say that they fix it or replace it but have to look at it first. Knowing me while I wait to "find out" I will have bought a new one and relegated this one to the little guy when ever its ready.
Saw this HUGE flower today and see my phone takes a better picture.

It was just as easy to pick the wrong one as it would have been to pick the right one.
I have a wooden mortar and pestle and the marble one too but nothing compares to this. I feel like sing the Sinead O Conner tune, I know I am a dork!

There were also deep fried smelts with a tomato, white peach, parsley and blueberry vinager salsa, followed by some gumbo.
This pot was seriously chock full. It had salmon, tilapia, whole smelts, crabs, shrimp, and mussels as well as okra summer peas carrots and potatoes and one jalapeno sliced in half for that little tiny kick. Why eat such a hot dish in this weather? I dunno.

It is a two hour drive not including bad traffic but it is nice to get out.
A stream with a swimming hole....
Oh and that same mystery "babe" that has followed me around for the last 5 years....
(She looks like she is on the phone but she is actually taking pictures.)
Lastly a dog for the guy to play with (blurry, my Fuji camera apparently sucks).
