Okay, I bought some jerky on National Jerky Day, without knowing it was National Jerky Day. Right now, I am sipping some bourbon, an occasional treat, just like jerky, and I did not know it was National Bourbon Day. What are the odds of that?

There are dry-pack scallops and wet-pack scallops. The wet ones are placed in a solution that plumps them. The dry are minimally processed and not treated after harvest. The biggest difference is that, while large-looking, wet scallops shrink a lot when cooked once the water is cooked from them. Dry scallops cook up close to raw size. And the flavor of wet scallops can be "off" from the solution. I hope all of that makes some sense, taxy.

As a matter of fact, it does make sense.

Actually, I had some bourbon while watching the Rangers beat the Reds 7-1 at a local watering hole with good fish-and-chips. Then I went home, took my dog for a long walk, and had another glass of bourbon.

So, dinner was some well made fish and chips, made by Mexican immigrants. Without Mexican immigrants, every decent restaurant in Texas would have to close. I'll leave it at that.
