Recipe blog

So, my wife cooking_mom has started a blog here on facebook. She picked up a couple of Weight Watchers cookbook, and it's her mission to try out the recipes and post a note about them. Since most of the weight watchers recipes are fairly low carb, it works well with the diet that I'm following. I was able to try one last weekend, and I'm looking forward to trying more this weekend. If you're interested, check it out. Lots of good stuff!!

Happy Memorial Day

In the USA, the last Monday in May has been set aside to remember those who have given their life in defense of this country. Many of us will be out and about visiting with friends and family, having fun and yes, hitting the store specials While we are doing this, let us also take a moment and recall those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to give us (and many around the world) the freedoms that we enjoy every day.

Thank you.

Social Persona Test

Your result for The Social Persona Test (What kind of man/woman are you?)...

The Late Bloomer (QTAM)

Quirky Traditional Alpha Male

You are a horrible persona to be until sometime in high school or college, and then things just can't go wrong for you. Sure you are a bit nerdy, but the cool type of nerdy; and you have developed confidence as if it were a well toned muscle. When selecting a date stick to nice, traditional women, preferably ones who share your interests.

You are more QUIRKY than NORMAL.

You are more TRADITIONAL than LIBERAL.

You are more DOMINANT than PASSIVE.

When picking a date, consider: The Rarity (QTAF) or The Librarian (QTBF).

Dom DeLuise: 1933 - 2009

Dom DeLuise, star of some of my favorite comedies and one very notable dramatic favorite, has passed away. Read the CNN article here.

In addition to his better known films such as "Blazing Saddles", "Silent Movie" and the "Smokey & The Bandit" films, he also had a part in the 1964 film "Failsafe", with Henry Fonda. He was a very funny man who had an amazing sense of timing, and a very infectious laugh.

Rest in peace, bro, we'll miss you.

Here's a short video of Dom doing a skit with Dean Martin.
