I don't necessarily blame the BBC. That punch was just the last straw after years of issues. Don't even know how many other people he punched. Tried to start a war with various countries he visited.

He's an asshole.

Pickle relishey (lightly sweet but more vinegary - hopefully will mellow a bit with time in the jars) but with sweet corn not cucumbers. Wife found the recipe and wanted to try it. I shucked five dozen (plus bonus ears) last night, she steamed them, I cut them, she cooked the relish and filled the jars, I processed them. It was quite a production and made a huge fucking mess. Made those nine jars plus two more there want room for in the canner, and probably have enough corn left to do another half a batch but I think we'll just freeze it plain or freeze dry it. Probably the last of the sweet corn for the year, the farmer said this was his "hail Mary" planting that doesn't always make it if the weather isn't just right.

Die Hard 2 is one of my guilty pleasures.  I love that one.

In fact, I even started doing naked tai-chi in front of the TV in motel rooms while watching the evening news.

The GEC 85 slayed another apple this evening.  Working on building up a strong natural patina on the blade with fruits, cooked meats, raw meats, and peppers.

The benefit is I'm eating more apples instead of snacks

My neighbor wanted to get tacos yesterday early afternoon but I couldn’t go at that time. $1 taco Tuesday was calling my name so I went later and ate some badass tacos without him.

Today my wife asked if I wanted to get lunch with her. Of course. Where do you want to go? How about the seafood place, oh but you already ate tacos yesterday. I looked at her and said, so? I can eat tacos everyday.


Tacos tacos tacos.

I need to up my cardio game for something and tacos aren’t helping.

I usually go the route of a weekend of margaritas or gin and tonics to get a good patina going. Some of my GEC's have slayed alot of limes in their lifetime!
