I am sitting here recording movie and stage tracks to my compter. I just finished cleaning the dishes. Next is the floor. I did the stove and fridge. I would like to know where I got all this energy. I would go there every day and get some. I had to stop as usual. Let tell you getting old is hard work. I keep having to stop because I am out of breath or in pain. Today it is pain. I would like to do just one chore without stopping to rest in the middle of it.

You might also try Mrs. Dash Original. I bought it as a salt substitute, but it is actually many different types of cracked pepper. It's delicious.

I especially love it when frying an egg. The smell of the pepper toasting is wonderful, and it doesn't make me sneeze (often).

Thanks for the suggestion about the pepper. I use a lot of Mrs. Dash's Tomato Basil Garlic seasonings on our pizza's.

I'm following Julia Child's recipe from The Way to Cook, for beef stock. I gave in and paid $3.99/kg (~$1.80/lb) for beef bones.

That's not a bad price if you got ones with marrow in them. And if they were big ones. I love the smell of them roasting in the oven. Sometimes my butcher will give me a bunch of leg bones for free. I would be lost if I had to depend on my local supermarket for my meat and bones. I may have to pay a few more cents for going to a small butcher shop, but the quality is so much better. The one thing I won't buy is ground meat. You have no way of knowing what was the last meat ground. And there is always leftover residual meat left in the grinder. I buy a London broil or a piece of nice chuck and grind it at home. I first put it through the large holes, then through the smaller ones. Worth the effort.

Well that is a silly thing to get. Geesh! Get better. It is no fun to pick on you if you are sick.

I got it because I choked on coffee a couple days ago...now that is REALLY silly.

I'm still ambulatory, not doing too bad. Just have this nasty cough.
