Happy Sunday! How are you?

It's been beautiful in Baltimore...and with California Chrome taking the Preakness there is a shot at a Triple Crown this year...

A quality lineup tonight...Aldrich Family, can't remember much of...Philo Vance is good...Gina will like the Sherlock Holmes...and a perfect 10pm hour with the Whistler and Inner Sanctum...

Tonight's episode of Inner Sanctum is sponsored by Bromo Seltzer. The next time you are in Baltimore look at the skyline for the Bromo Seltzer tower...

Doing good, Vision. You have a lovely day up there, and it’s a nice one here, too. 100% sunshine, but it’s not too hot.

The beautiful Baltimore Bromo Seltzer tower!

Work’s fine. We’re both staying busy. I’ve been hoping to write more columns each week, but my other work has been getting in the way, and sometimes I’m the one who gets in the way. :-/

We have a chicken and some Conecuh sausage to put on the grill. I’ll figure out something for the side. What about you? Anything cool or special going on? Any new recipes?

Our pals from around the corner and down the street are moving and had a garage sale, and we picked up one of those home gym things with weights, etc., for 20 bucks. I also want to get a rowing machine to work my rear off, but that will have to wait until some money comes in, because the one I’d like isn’t cheap. :-)

Conecuh sausage, I need to try that. Ship it in or something.

Grilled steaks this weekend. Been doing a lot of yard work and it’s beginning to pay off. Drank some Dark and Stormy’s which I’ve become fond of (they’re sweet so a few go a ways.)

In exercise I find the most important thing is cardio. Get your heart rate up and keep it up. I do 3 1hr sessions a week and feel great. Never did a rowing machine. Have done bikes and mostly use an elliptical now.

Conecuh is a good, smoked sausage, just-right spicy, local to Alabama and available in this area nearby. It’s great on the grill brushed with BBQ sauce near the end of charring it just a bit. I would be glad to ship you some if you ever wanted it. What’s Dark and Stormy’s? Sounds strong! :-) Do you marinate your steaks? Have you ever soaked your steaks overnight in pineapple juice? It’s wonderful and has a tenderizing effect, the longer you soak them.

I thought about an elliptical, too. Studying up on it, I found that pretty much the best all-around machine for cardio, fat-burning and strength building is a rowing machine. I’m hoping to get a Concept 2 Model D. Their Model E would be nice, because it’s a little higher off the floor, but the Model D would be fine. It’s the best-selling rowing machine in the world, very well-made, according to all I’ve read.

Thanks, I'll let you know. I've heard it mentioned on the bbq boards. I really want Hot Guts and will be ordering a few at some point.

What’s Dark and Stormy’s? Sounds strong! :-)

It's the drink of Bermuda. Ginger beer (ale) and dark rum. Barretts is the maker of ginger beer on island- it's sweeter with less ginger bite than most ginger ales. I love it. The original recipe is 1.5oz to 6oz of gb but I might be favoring 2oz. So it's a solid drink. Goes down very easy on a warm day.

Do you marinate your steaks? Have you ever soaked your steaks overnight in pineapple juice? It’s wonderful and has a tenderizing effect, the longer you soak them.

Usually not. Never heard of pineapple juice and beef.

I’m confused. What relationship did the murderers have with the boy? They played pool with him?

I missed a lot of Dragnet, because I was in and out of the laundry room and couldn’t hear it, so I don’t know either.

Sometime you should try soaking your beef steaks in pineapple juice. It’s makes a very, very good flavor of the meat. I soak them overnight or longer. Pineapple has a natural tenderizer, bromelain, and it works nicely on the meat the longer you soak it.

The Dark and Stormy sounds like it is only for the strong! :-)

No, you can cut it back to whatever amount of rum you like.

Nah. I'll forgo the lobotomy box until I crawl into bed. Looking forward to the next couple of shows. With a cold brew. Then maybe watch Abbot and Costello Meet The Mummy. Since I got laid off due to the bum leg last month, I got nowhere special to be early tomorrow morning. Right now, the missus is tucked away warmly, so it's just me, the occasional cat, a cold one, a gingerbread candle, a cozy den, and a little theater of the mind.........
