I am getting my internet fix.
Six hours without power... interesting times indeed. I passed the time drinking beer and reading a story I had saved on my laptop called Lights Out.

Dawg, I understand exactly how you feel. Even though Dad's condo was not my childhood home, he was there for almost 20 years and it was the last home he and Mom shared before she passed. There were a lot of memories and yet it was a relief when it was all done. {{{{{{{{{{{{{Dawgluver}}}}}}}}}}}}}

Just put on a pot of Kale, bean and sausage soup.

Cold, rainy spring day!

Thinking I feel too good to go to work today, might call in well.

Thought of all you Costco lovers when I picked up a Costco Cookbook at Goodwill for $1. The price was right and it had beautiful pictures of each dish. A picture always makes a recipe look more inviting. The book was put out by Costco and probably sold in the store at one time. the recipes listed brands specific to Costco, and also featured a few chefs from Food Network. It's a very nice cookbook, and the price was right!

Every couple of years, Costco distributes a soft cover "book" of recipes using (and advertising)the products they sell. I assume the vendors subsidize the book. I've not seen a cookbook for sale.

We pick one or two up every year at Thanksgiving when we visit BIL's Costco. They give them away as you go out the door. I pick up an extra one for a friend. Very nice cookbooks.

I just got back from the local Agway where I picked up some chick starter feed and did not pick up a bag of pine shavings. Apparently they have been having a hard time getting it in. I looked in my shed and still have 1/3 of a bag left from the last time I had chickens, so that will get me going.
Another reason it is good to never throw anything away.
