Like Spicy Sunshine

Mustard has been around since 2,000 BC. (give or take) Who’d have thought that such a little seed could still bring so much happiness to so many faces and be popular enough to support so many brands at the store. All so I can have mustard on my hot dog!!  :-))))    Spending time on the […]

Sweet & Juicy

Watermelon!!! Nothing like it. And everybody likes it! But it’s especially fun to watch kids eat it, especially if it’s their first time. Even the first of the summer is fun, too. I think that sweet, juicy watermelon just brings out the kid in all of us. Gotta get me some—NOW!!!!!   With the mercury […]

Like St. George and the Dragon, Robin Hood and his Merry Men (Catch the Disney song here at 0.34 seconds in), King Arthur and the Sword in the Stone, The Ghost of The Grey Lady and Longleat House and, of course, Lady Godiva’s naked ride […]

Smokin Good!!

Smoked meats are fantastic!!! And smokin ‘em is something we can do ourselves. You could build a smokehouse in your backyard for $27,500. Or get the awesome Meadow Creek TS250 Barbeque Smoker Trailer (second photo down) for only $7,195. See that baby HERE.  But most of us will opt for a less expensive option providing the same results.
