  •  Mmmmmm Chocolate! (11+ / 0-)

    After spending much of yesterday out freezing and joining the kids on the ice, this morning came too early. My niece just moved into her first house and we moved the baby grand piano from her mom's house to hers. Luckily, my sister in law's brother's wife's brother worked for a piano guy for several decades and he had it down to a science, so though it took several hours, mission accomplished! Nothing broken! 100 year old family heirloom delivered and set!
    Chocolate cake...My grandmother used to make a chocolate cake where she'd make three round pan cakes about 1 1/2" thick then slice them into layers 3/4 thick, spread a thick layer of her homemade raspberry jam on each then frost the whole thing with a dark chocolate frosting. Pretty much unbeatable.
    "I'm Not Angry" Elvis Costello.
    In the late 70s I delivered 3 horses by airfreight to England and while I was over there with no return ticket, no particular plan, I stayed a couple months, visiting people in Wales and the Midlands and Holland, a friend came over to join me and we went to Stonehenge and took a jet boat across the Channel, train up to Paris, a few hours there (at the George Pompidou Center) then on to Amsterdam.
    The worst was taking a friend up to Vinalhaven island for a romantic weekend wherein nothing went right, nothing was happening, and the GF and I broke up in the middle of all this on an island hundreds of miles away from home, sucked all the way around.
    Cornbread should be slightly sweet.
    I quit punching clocks years ago and now work for the worst boss in the world, ME. I punched in but I can never punch out.

    If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!
