    I have had my coffee and have decided to take the day off.
    My goal for today is to do absolutely nothing.
    I might fix myself a light lunch, watch movies this afternoon and let it blend into the evening hours when I will smoke a cigar and reflect on the day's events with the help of Fox News.
    I will, however, be checking email/voicemail throughout the day.

    Talking go for it CR

    As for me, the swordfish is marinating, the bread dough is rising: dinner will be pan seared swordfish, served with a white wine-lemon sauce (using my new herbs from Australia). served over a bed of finely sliced fennel and raddicchio and drizzled with the sauce.

    YUMMM.

    Let's see....I've always thought chicken enchiladas were well complimented by a nice vintage Boone's Farm or Mogen David.

    Talking in case you were wondering

    I just finished eating my melt in your mouth swordfish. Tender, flakey and sooo GOOD. The lemon myrtle is awesome. I bought what is called Australian Oz Lemon which is a mix of lemon myrtle, forest anise, lemon aspen pulp, lemon peel and lemon myrtle extract. It is a finishing herb so you add it at the end. After I seared the swordfish and took it out of the pan, I sprinkled some on top of the fish. The heat from the food releases the essential oils and flavors of the herb. I used a little more at the end of my sauce to flavor the sauce and poured the sauce over my fish and fennel/reddicchio. All I can say is my tummy is very happy. YUMM YUMM YUMM. I will be trying new ideas out now

    I have moved in with my brother and we got a spit for the BBQ. Best investment ever. We have had so many spit roasts lately but my favourite so far has been the lamb.
    His fiance is getting sick of spit roasts; we are not.

    For all the life of me, i cant see a firefighter going to hell. At least not for very long. We would end up putting out all the fires and annoying the devil too much.

    Crowning glory for using the BBQ for me has been the roast and the 25lb turkey from a few years back. Took pretty much all day for each one, and an INCREDIBLE amount of patience to create, but oooooooohhhhhhhhhhh sooooooooo worth it!

    Maybe this'll kill it:

    What's His Name?

    A company was looking to hire someone for an important position, so they interviewed dozens of applicants and narrowed their search down to three people from different parts of the country. In an attempt to pick one of them, they decided to give them all the same question to answer within 24 hours and the one with the best answer would get the job.

    The question was: A man and a woman are in bed, nude. The woman is lying on her side with her back facing the man, and the man is lying on his side facing the woman's back. What is the man's name?

    After the 24 hours was up, the three were brought in to give their answers.

    The first from Vancouver, says "My answer is, there IS no answer."

    The second from Toronto, says "My answer is, that there is no way to determine the answer with the information we were given."

    The third one from Newfoundland says, "I'm not exactly sure, but I have it narrowed down to two names, it's either " Willie Turner or Willie Nailer."

    The Newfoundlander got the job.

    Do illiterate people get the full effect of alphabet soup?

    Who was the first person to look at a cow and say, "I think I'll squeeze these dangly things here, abd drink whatever comes out!"

    Or watch a white thing come out of a chicken behind and think, "that ought to taste good."

    Why do toasters have a setting that burns the toast to a horrible crisp, which no decent human being would eat?

    Why is there a light in the fridge and not in the freezer?

    Can blind people see their dreams? Do they dream?

    If Wyle E. Coyote had enough money to buy all that ACME crap, why didn't he jsut buy dinner?

    If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil made from vegetables, what is baby oil made from?

    If electricity comes from electrons, does morality come from morons?

    Is Disney World the only people trap operated by a mouse?

    Do the Alphabet song and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star have the same tune?

    Why did you just try singing the two songs listed above?

    Why do they call it an asteroid when it's outside the hemisphere, but call it a hemorrhoid when it's in your butt?

    Did you ever notice that when you blow in a dog's face, he gets mad at you, but when you take him for a car ride; he sticks his head out the window?

    Talking pondering.....

    So where can one go in August that is not hot and humid and has a coastline ? (NZ is too far away, I only have 4 days).
    I have 4 days to regain my sanity at the end of August and need a quickie trip that I can do on a Fri-Mon that won't cost me an arm and a leg.
