It's gettin' down to the wire....good luck Princess and Ogre....you'll be so glad once you get into your new home, even if you have to live out of boxes for a while. Wishing you the best, and godspeed.

Just paid my driver's license renewal online. That was easier than going to the office. Previous years they only accepted payment from two financial institutions, but they added a bunch this year. I'm glad.

I bought a bag of live clams today. As I was standing there tapping each one I was talking to them. "Yoohoo, anyone home?" If they closed, I knew someone was home and didn't want company. One woman was walking by and started to laugh so hard. "I don't blame you honey. You can't be too careful." I got lucky. One was cracked and one failed to open no matter what you did to it. I strained the broth once and have to do it again. I could get by with just one straining, but I feel better with two. A lot of sand and tiny rocks. I consider them to be flavor enhancers. I have a really fine mesh strainer and I also use a coffee filter in it. Then I know my broth is clear.

Why am I cooking at 3:41 in the morning? I am rendering the salt pork for the clam chowder. Once the fat is out I will turn up the heat and make the little pieces nice and crunchy. Then I still have to strain the broth again and take the clams out of the shell and remove all the stuff I don't want in the chowder.

Whose idea was it for clam chowder anyway? What was I thinking? I must have been delirious.

PF just worked at her job for the very last day. She doesn't start her new job until the end of May. She is now between jobs. What is she to do with all this time on her hands. (Except packing and getting ready to move to Wyoming and her new job.)

Gee, I just thought of another possible problem. Medical care for Shrek and yourself. You will have to find a new doctor. Let's hope the folks at your new job will have some helpful suggestions.

Perfect time to purge stuff! Best of luck, PF, with the move and your new job. What an adventure you are on!

Shrek's Medicare goes with him and I am covered until the 31st for insurance purposes. I start my new job the 28th and will be covered then.

We will be using the same Doctors Mom and Dad use in Scottsbluff, Nebraska. The closest place with a Cardiology Team.

I will be off DC for about 2 weeks starting the 15th. Otherwise I will never leave the computer alone and get things done.
