    But enough frivolity.

    What's in these brownies? Anything special?

    My question for Superchef is, If the construction workers had been naked, would she have waved at them??

    your usual deep, dark decadent chocolate brownies; good high quality ingredients...high quality unsweetened and bittersweet chocolate, organic eggs and butter, organic flour, sugar......


    If the construction workers had been naked, would she have waved at them??
    Hmmm. Let me think about this.

    How about we edit out "naked" and insert "organic" construcion workers...

    What exactly is an organic egg? Aren't they all organic in one way or another?

    That works for me. This of course requires another question to be asked, are firefighters organic and if so, would I wave at them?

    I have organs, therefore I must be organic?

    I want to get an order in for homemade yellow cake with buttercream frosting and a bowl of homemade vanilla ice cream. Is that a reasonable request?

    Default Garbage in, garbage out

    "Life & Law of the Garbage Truck

    One day I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the
    airport. We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car
    jumped out of a parking space right in front of us. My taxi driver slammed
    on his brakes, skidded, and missed the other car by just inches! The driver
    of the other car whipped his head around and started yelling at us.
    My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And I mean, he was really
    friendly.
    So I asked, 'Why did you just do that? This guy
    almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!' This is when my taxi
    driver taught me what I now call, 'The Law of the Garbage Truck.'

    He explained that many people are like garbage
    trucks. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger,
    and full of disappointment. As their garbage piles up, they need
    a place to dump it and sometimes they'll du mp it on you. Don't take it personally.
    Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. Don't take their garbage and
    spread it to other people at work, at home, or on the streets.

    The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks take
    over their day. Life's too short to wake up in the morning with regrets,
    so..... 'Love the people who treat you right. Pray for the ones who
    don't.'

    Life is ten percent what you make it and ninety percent how you take it."

    I think sausages and jocularity are going to be a bit on the low side in Vienna today.

    "A" Shift received a call for a house fire at a private residence in Vienna at 0430 this morning. It turned into a fatal fire for one of the residents. Two males are in hospital with undisclosed injuries, but the lady of the house did not survive.

    Going to be a solomn day in the Firehouse I think. Heartfelt prayers for the family loss and to the crews who are involved.

    Bad things happen. However, when they do, it is best to find happiness in the simple things. Have a piece of birthday cake, even if it isn't your birthday. Once you are old enough to buy your own cake, your mama can't tell you that you cannot have anymore...

    Ya got the truth there, RHV, I'll give you that for sure. And although I am sure I don't know the family personally, I'd be willing to make a fairly safe bet that I've seen them once or twice in the past three years.

    We have a very open station in Vienna, the local people are very proud to have us, and in return we make sure that the doors are "always open" if any one asks. Likely as not, I've seen them during an Open House or maybe even just in a passing walk-through.

    However on the good side, the sun rose in east like it should, the birds are singing and the humidity is not too bad - YET

    It is too quiet in here today. I can hear the crickets chirping.

    I hope you are all behaving yourselves. What are you plotting? A firehouse full of mischievious firefighters is never quiet unless you are up to something.

    yes. right. if you say so volfirie.


    well, here it is another bright beautiful day off. I did remember this time not to open the blinds till after I was dressed. I had to take the day off again and the weather here is gorgeous. It is fascinating to see just how much goes into the construction of a high-rise.

    ok. boys, what's up?
