I made Chinese BBQ red pork for the first time. It was wonderful in homemade Wonton soup. Quick and easy lunch.
I used equal amounts of the Ah-So BBQ sauce and Hoisin sauce. Cut the boneless pork loin roast into medium size flat chunks and tossed them in the sauce then put them on a foil line tray. I put them in the oven set on convection roast 350F for 20 minutes turned then another 20 minutes. They turned out nicely browned. What a wonderful flavor. I can't wait to use it in the fried rice and egg rolls.
I will try to remember to get a picture of the chunks before I cut them up.
Here's a picture of the soup.

In 1985 I joined a group to build a co-op housing project along the Fraser River in the beautiful old city of New Westminster. The Sky Train rapid transit had just been built to get ready for Expo 86 and it's terminus station was right across some railroad tracks from the riverfront development.

As more complexes were built around us, several towers were built across the street from us, right beside the Amtrak rails that have been there for forever. People bought into these luxury condos knowing full well there were tugboats on the river, trains on the rails and the rapid transit around them.

The owners started to put in a petition to have the tracks moved or at the very least closed down because they were shaking their buildings. They even wanted our complex to sign as well.

One outspoken resident of our complex told one of the petitioners "I bet you are the type that would go to McDonald's and purposely spill coffee on yourself so you could sue!

Needless to say the petition (and the tracks) never went anywhere and the people got used to it!

We get a lot of Monarchs through here in the Fall, but they are probably just migrating.
Wish I could have managed that, pac. But if you'll Google this site, they do have a time-lapse that is (gee, I really don't like this overused word, but...) awesome.

Thanks, LP. And check this out if you have a chance.

Here's one for you.
A local, old farmer who had a pig farm and was told he could no longer farm pigs because of the housing development that went in beside him. They took up a petition, changed the zoning and won. He was told he could only farm crops. How is that for "progress"?

That is magnificent, Lizzie! Congrats, butterfly grandma!

Ms.M, I am sending you a self-addressed, stamped container that I want you to fill with your yummy soup!
