My First Yelp Review

I had to do this based on a well reviewed Japanese izakaya style restaurant that...sucked.

Holstein, the "grapefruit apple"

The nickname is apt.  Tangy, sweet, amazing.  Unlike any apple I've had before.  Must remember the name.  Discovered at Seattle Tilth.

A Busy Weekend

Wash and wax the car on Saturday.  Bake some bread.  Sunday, a 30 mile bike ride on the Green River Trail.  But that's not all..., it's still light out so why not mow the lawn?  First time in weeks that the lawn's been mowed, but it has been a dry summer so the yard looked no worse than that of most of my neighbors.

Chocolate chip cookies for dessert this Monday night.  Made sure that I placed the plate so that the two smaller cookies ended up on C-'s side.  But it backfired, her cookies had more chips than mine, and maybe a touch more of  dough in the center of the cookie that's in that perfect spot between just cooked and raw.

Gavin's Birthday Poem, His 7th

There are many ways to fly a kite
But when flying a kite you must do it right
Most important is wind for your kite to take flight
If everything's right your kite will fly out of sight!

Of course rule number one
Is to avoid lightning
When you fly in the sun
It's much less frightening!

Another rule is
To stay far from trees
The reason for this?
To avoid branches and leaves.

But this poem is not about
The dangers of kites
It's not about lightning
And wind when when it's right

It's about Gavin
And eating a big piece of cake
And now that your seven
How much can you take?

Labor Day en la Cocina

Baked two loaves of bread today, cooked about four cups of beans, and made chile verde with 1.5 lbs of pork shoulder, a bag of Hatch green chile, and a small bag of Tio Jerry's blender mix. No time for homemade tort's, maybe next time.

My XP Laptop

it is my enemy
i want to toss it out the window
and then stomp on it with my feet
and then hit it with a hammer
and then throw it in the trash
and then set fire to it
and then dance on the ashes from the laptop
and then bury the ashes
and then plant flowers on the dirt over the laptop ashes
and then sprinkle cow manure on the flowers
