I'm on the Next Mars Mission

At least my name will be etched on the lander. How cool is that?


Game One Preview - The Slider

As it happened, the NFL scheduled The Houston Texans as our 2015 home opener. In keeping with a food theme for our occasional opponents, my thoughts naturally turned to beef.

Last year we discovered that sliders of any type make for great finger food. They are good, easy to build, Easy to handle and multi task, and pair well with a wing and beer. We had pulled pork sliders, pulled beef sliders, meatball sliders, and traditional hamburger sliders. This year expect the addition of chicken and pork tenderloin sliders.

Sliders lend themselves to indulgence because one is only dealing with a few bites. So pile on the cheese, grilled onions, rich sauces, and veggies.

We were fortunate to be gifted 228 Angus Beef, whole muscle from the short rib and chuck sliders from Bang Bang Burgers. They were immediately frozen and are waiting for September 20.

Last night I was able to observe the owner Of Bang Bang making the perfect beef sliders from a batch of previously frozen patties.

Just a bit of kosher salt and course ground black pepper season each side as they cook on a medium heat griddle. When they sweat, it's time to turn. Salt and pepper again and add cheese.

Meanwhile, the Kings Hawaiian rolls are lightly toasted on each side.

In just moments I had perfection in my hand. It needed nothing else. Great taste, moist, beef and cheese cooked medium. Just the slightest pink in the middle.

I hoovered up a second slider to confirm my previous thoughts. I can't wait until September 20.


My Friend is Missing

Guy Garman is a competitive man. Today he attempted the world record depth scuba diving. 1200 feet. He hasn't been seen since 6 AM this morning.

His Tanks for the Dive


MOD is Maximum Operating Depth

I'm sick thinking of the possibilities.


Sexual Deviants of Summer

Jared Fogle - the Subway guy likes little girls. Bummer.

Bill Cosby - he likes pudding.....pudding his dick where it doesn't belong. Drug induced forced sex is criminal.

Bruce Jenner - threw his dick away. Now she's happy. Okay.

The U.S. Supreme Court - any hole goes under the law. Okay.

Me? Give me time to adjust please.

Happy August Y'all

So excited that fall is approaching. I used to be able to stand...no I actually enjoyed heat in the 90s. Not so much anymore. I sleep better on cool nights. It's the lack of sunlight that throws me into a crud come winter time.

Football is so near and I like that. Opening week for college and the next week pro ball opens. I love those two weeks. For about three years I'd go to St. Croix on college opening week. Then I'd return for the Super Bowl.

But alas I haven't travels much in the last two years. Maybe we can get some RV time in this fall.
