I was just watching a show called "Deep Fried Masters". They were deep frying all kinds of foods to be judged for what would sell at the fair. Interesting.

It seems the more warning we get about fried foods, the more weird foods we find to fry. I took a look at my can of Crisco. Looked at the 'best is used by' date. 2010? Time to toss it. Been sitting on the shelf since 2009.

Thanks for the heads up on this CG, as I hadn't heard anything about it.
After reading the article I'm excited too!

just wanted to let everyone know i haven't lost my knack for picking them--new tv show 'winners'. i'm really enjoying greg kinnear in 'rake', a series that debuted two weeks ago. kinnear plays a brilliant lawyer whose private life is a daily disaster--money woes, an assortment of addictions, strings of failed relationships--but an extremely likable, charismatic loser,without an ounce of insight, who keeps right on steppin' in it. the way this show is being 'raked' over the coals, it will be canceled just as soon as the half-dozen or so trial episodes have aired.....

Anything Good On TV?

On Nat. Geo there is a program call The Incredible Dr. Pol. He is a veterinarian and in his 70's. His whole family in the business and two of his kids are vets also. (I think. I know the daughter is.) His practice in located in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan. He is the kind of vet anyone would love for their animals. I just love this show.

We really like that show too Addie. His good natured energy is remarkable. Sometimes it gets pretty gross when he's up to his shoulder birthing farm animals though.

And that is what I love about it. They hold nothing back. Having worked with 4-H farm kids, I have seen it all before, live.

Now that the Olympics are over the broadcasters will start showing new shows again instead of reruns so there should be plenty of good stuff on TV.
