I like this movie...and killing flies too

How did I miss this movie..? So, I just watched 'I Like Killing Flies' . I loved this documentary! Really, when all the extra fluff in the world comes gets filtered out, there are only the most simple ideas and simple pleasures left. These simple things somehow ground me and connect all of us. A nice hour+ movie escape...

North of the Border...

Just going thru some images and found these items from a trip to Canada.

Dude...gimme a beer, no a 'Dude Beer'! Dude....

Oh yeah, and while your at it get my partner here a Vodka, not a mixed drink, a 'Vodka Water'

With times the way they are, I think I'd rather buy some vodka and cut it with water...hmmm, a 'vodka water'. Absolute Silliness!

Recession Special

So, in light of the day's events (recurring events lately...), I thought I'd partake in a somewhat simple, and economical meal. Well, that and the fact that my wife is out of town and I don't feel like cooking.

Don't know why I felt compelled to post this, but it kind of fit the way I felt at the end of the day - really not sad, really not worried, somewhat hopeful (of what I'm not sure?), but I did end the chilly, wet fall day knowing that I was feeling alright...

So what's on the menu?

- Two eggs, over easy topped w/ shredded goat cheddar

- Toast (a heel of baguette and half a preztel roll I found in the freezer)

- Mixed salad

-Beverage (surpisingly tasty mix of Old Grandad, a couple of dashes of Reagan's No. 6 Orange Bitters, and Diet Squirt on ice) Don't knock it till you try it!

Hope all are well, and remember - you could always have it worse.

Plum Kuchen!

Nothing better than some summer baking...homeade Plum Kuchen, yum!

Ummm, the sights and flavors of harvest time. Babysitting the neighbors garden while they were traveling turned out to be a good thing! Couldn't help snapping a pic of these in all their glory.
