Yesterday at the grocery I lucked into a nearly 4-lb. piece of pork belly. The nice young man behind the counter sliced it, and I've spent part of this afternoon frying it. I trim off the rind, then dredge the slice in flour, s&p, and fry it in some canola oil until very crisp. Mmmm. But I only got half of it fried and must finish it up tomorrow.

Baseball here too, Andy. I have the Indians audio on Gameday while I go through old magazines, clipping recipes I'll never live long enough to try (I have scads of them already) and scratching the cat when she shows up on top the desk. Since we're in the basement "scratching" is more like grooming her with all the cobwebs and wood shavings she accrues with each exploration.

When I bought The Pirate his laptop, it had Vista. We both hated it. He downloaded Firefox and has never looked back. He had Spike remove Vista and load up Windows 8. Now he is a happy camper.
