I too am currently on vacay. In Tampa. Never been. south floriday many times. i think I have a lap top and then it doesn't. It's like an etch a sketch, mebbe I don't kno how to use it quite yet. I brought coffee beans, already ground up, so as to be quiet in the mornings. Doesn't matter. We both wake up early. Except I need an afternoon siesta. She doesn't. It's just go go Go. I v'e been up since 5 am local and I aready want to go back to bed. 2 hours into saturday morning and I don't expect to do so. not during daylight anyway. Why did the gods and goddesses of goodness invent curtains and a soft mattress anyway. I don';t suppose they offer the "early bird special " come around 10 ish in the morning. It's like finding a good cigar, one can always hope. Only here per chance the diggings are a wee bit better. And no, I don't get to shmoke indoors even if I find one. I neffer knew the meaning of pearls before swine, is it even biblical or just rock and roll. Now, I think I do.

BT--good luck on finding a deal! Are you packing it in and moving to a farm?

I'm also going MIA--have more work to do than hours in which to do it--and I so love playing with my friends here in the DC sandbox. Gotta exercise some discipline so I can get paid!

I need to exercise some discipline about DC too. We'll miss you. Don't stay away too much.

i'm back.

thanks, gg. it was a nice vacation. a trip to vermont amd searching out a summer rental down the jersey shore, but no florida, though.

my culinary discoveries from vacation were i bought a small bottle of bacon salt (can't wait to try it on grilled chicken or a salad), and i had a fantastic dish called something like malafammena", which was shellfish - lobster, shrimp, clams, mussels, and crab over linguini in a soupy tomato/old bay/clam broth. really good.

lots of baseball of late. i'm beat after working 5 hours non-stop in the kitchen at the ballfield tonight slinging hot dogs, french fries, and chicken fingers. i have a new found respect for short order cooks. i was only doing it for 5 hours (without a minute break) and i'm pretty tired. i can't imagine cooking and serving like that for 8 or 10 hours or longer. thank god i got to work with a woman who runs a school cafeteria as her regular job. i only made 1 mistake on the register as well, so i think we did ok.

anyway, i'm happy to be back at my own job where my butt gets ever wider as i sit in front of a keyboard.

still, it was fun.

Welcome back BT ... is that Bacon Salt from Baconsalt? If so, you will enjoy it. We have been getting stuff from them for a couple years now. I also love their MaltSalt. They have everything Bacon.
