Good evening...when is it ever going to warm up?

A solid lineup tonight...not sure I’ve heard of My Friend Irma before...with an Escape and Lux with William Holden.

What’s new?

Hi, Vision,

I think I remember Ed playing “My Friend Irma” before, but it’s a fuzzy memory.

Spring is slow to get where you are. Is it at least dry for now? It’s perfect here today, but a cold front is on the way, not nearly as cold as where you are, though.

Hi Gina, this weekend was dry and yesterday was beautiful, but now the temp will drop again for the week. Was talking to the local radio garden show host and he says everything is behind a month.

Did some nice burgers today but no major cooks happened. Did lots of yard work.

I’ve got lots going on, am about to start a new job and next Sunday will be in Dallas. Are you able to post the thread?

Sure, Vision! Just remind me, and I’ll post it.

Not much news here, just a very busy work week. We’re trying to get a bunch of jobs wrapped up before March 31 when Keith starts a new job.

Are you saying you have a brand new job, or just a new one that’s part of your same company?

We’re going to slow smoke some baby back ribs...

I hope you love it, Vision!

Keith’s new job is in bio-med tech. It’s good, because the sun and hard outdoor work are wearing him out.

The pits! I just had to run to grocery store, because I opened the package of baby back ribs I bought today at Walmart, and they were slimy and smelled bad! The expiration date is not till March 27th. So, I went to a nearby store and bought some more! I’ll be taking the others back to Walmart tomorrow. Gads!

Yep! I got the very last package, and they were frozen, but we put them in warm water, and they’re going on the grill now.

Life is relatively good. Overall health seems to be taking an uptick. The missus landed a pretty good management job in the auto parts industry that elevates her to her former glory, and I'm back into the IT profession after a long slog through unemployment. It's a position down in 'the bowels of the ship', but I just retain my sanity by joking that I'm slumming it until a gate opens to a greener pasture. LOL Beats a government cheese check every week. Not by much, but it gives a man his dignity back and a sense of purpose with it.

My Friend Irma isn’t the worst family comedy, but it isn’t great.

Right as rain. Still have to replace the six-way valve between the pool sand filter and pump, and I have a laundry list of spring projects, but we're good to go. It's hard to get the ol' mental engine running this time of year, though. We're still scraping our windshields in the mornings. It's March. In Alabama. It might get into the 70's some days, but we still fire up the wood stove in the evenings. Enough is enough already. I'm not even sure when to start my seed flats yet, and I've got over a thousand square feet of garden to till.

We currently have two racks in the deep freeze. I start by putting them in a large foil pan, on top of a wire cooling rack. Then I add a can or two of beer, clip an inverted foil pan on top, then steam them in the oven at 300 for two or three hours, until the meat begins to pull back from the rib tips. Then, I put them on the grill with a box of damp hickory chips, and slow-smoke them for another hour or so. I finish them by bumping up the heat, and basting them with Jack Daniels Old No. 7 original BBQ sauce, until they just start to get a nice, crisp bark on the outside, and those rib tips are really poking out of the ends. Mmmmmm-mmmmm. That meat is so sweet, tender, and smoky, it just falls off the bone.

Remind me later to tell you about our signature Three-Beast meatloaf, farmhouse chili, and a crock-pot spaghetti sauce that's so good, the leftovers are re-purposed for deep-dish, five cheese lasagna.

I’ve been looking for a couple of years, while doing my landscaping. I’m blessed to get this gig. I’ll be working on dialysis machines. God is good to us.

Glad to hear of your new job.

Escape sound great!
