That sound like the name of the ones I've bought! I haven't had them for a couple years because I used to take one to work for my break and I'm no longer working. But when I had them, I thought they were good! I think the ones I bought were chicken. A couple times I bought some from Aldis and they were off brand, but they were good.

Today we went to the casino and I took an eggroll from the buffet, same as I always do. It was terrible. The filling in it tasted like stuffing, like bread stuffing you put in a turkey. I couldn't finish it. I eat their egg rolls all the time. I don't know what happened. I'm sure they are frozen egg rolls. I doubt if they make them from scratch. I also had some spring rolls that were good, and something called crab ragoons.

Now that I think back, I think my mother made some egg rolls home made. My brother used to bring egg rolls home from the Chinese Restaurant next door to where he worked, and after that my mother bought the ingredients and made them at home a couple times. So I have had home made.

Just got home from cocktails and dinner at Harry S. Truman's Little White House. Beautiful place, even if it was hot and humid. No breeze so I'm drenched right now. It was an absolutely lovely night, though.

Yup. As soon as you hit the water...POOF...off it goes. It has a C02 cartirige that is activated by getting wet. Mrs D grabs the cables on the bow as we go through the locks up to Georgian Bay. We almost got hit last year by a runaway rental houseboat which would have knocked her into the water. It seams there are just as many idiots on the water as there are on the road.

Andy, every time we get a decent lead, the Colts score right behind us. That is not good for my heart. Can't you do something about this?

Oh be still my heart. It is beating with total joy! Thank you so much. I know you have a SO, but tell her that just for tonight, I know I love you.
