Burgers (new recipe) Onions and tomatoes in olive oil and a bit of vinegar Potato salad [INSERT VIDEO AND THEN REMOVE VIDEO] Music from the Redneck Collection (please excuse Mr. Big Food’s reach): UPDATE: Someone doesn’t like that I posted 1 minute 20 seconds of Pete Fountain’s Basin Street Blues so I removed the video.
Antenna not included Stopped in at Jim’s Auto Parts this morning to pick up an antenna. I had two choices. I chose the magnetic mount because I have a truck, but not a truck. Then on to Stewart’s Body Shop to chat about installation. (I know. I know. You can do it yourself. But what

Greetings y’allAnd welcome all you danged foreigners from other nationsDear Lord be with our guests and prepare themFor the butt whopping they are about to receive The Olympics in GeorgiaGod
Mr. Big Food made the variation for me. I do not care for peas all that much. This was last night’s supper. After the steak is browned in the iron skillet, and the remaining ingredients added, it bakes for two hours, affording Mr. Big Food and I the opportunity to fix ourselves an adult beverage,

Just the good ol’ boys, Never meanin’ no harm, Beats all you’ve ever saw, been in trouble with the law since the day they was born. Straight’nin’ the curve, Flat’nin’ the hills. Someday the
NASCAR has banned the General Lee from a lap in the Sprint Cup parade. A sad day in The South’s history: Ben Jones, who played mechanic “Cooter” Davenport and is a former Georgia congressman, blasted NASCAR’s decision in a statement.
