    some afternoon fun stuff. Part of a letter sent to my ggggreat grandfather.

    New Middleton, Ill Feb. 28, 1867

    Mr. James Barnes: Dear cousin:

    Yours came to hand day before yesterday and found us tolerably well, considering the mud.

    The winter has been very cold during the month of January. The snow was two feet deep and the mud has been nearly as deep.

    I have been looking strong for that meat. I don't care whether you ever go to the Knob or not, so you send a piece of Bear, and if you don't want your smeller broke, send it along and not compel me to come for it.

      Polly Ann says tell her folks that she has been flesheyer this winter than she ever was in her life before.

      Fracking awesome! Thanks dude. I know what I'll be looking for the next time I go to BK Music.

        You get your music at Burger King?

    Good morning our not-so-crotchety kastchkins! There is a reason I try not to travel to FL in August...due to fly out on Saturday. AleeD, can you huff and puff Isaac back out to sea??

    • Truth™@JBJ

      I don't think there will be a landfall. All of the hot air emanating from the RNC will act as a natural barrier.

    • AleeD®@™©JbJiNg!eŚ®™ & Truth™

      Truth has a solid point ... and I won't blow anything less than a 5 ... oh, you meant hurricane Isaac. My bad.

      I wouldn't worry about a cat 1 – unless you're landing a plane in it. Aug & Sept are the worst months for weather in FL. Is there any way you can postpone your trip?

      August 22, 2012 at 12:36 pm |
      • ™©JbJiNg!eŚ®™@AleeD & Truth

        Yeah, a cat 1 is not that big of a deal, except landing the plane! No way to delay this at this point, we took a week of juggling schedules in SRQ to get these dates and I'll be out most of the rest of the month.

        We'll just see what he looks like on Saturday/Sunday, and bring extra hold hairspray and an umbrella or two.

    Ummmmm so I guess we had a little too much to drink last night. I never saw that coming. You promise to never tell anyone about this right?

      Only if you promise to call me every day.

    Good morning all!

    Looks like that Issac character might be getting too close for comfort...

    Good morning! Not too bad a Wednesday for a change. RH, good to know about the new email since its FOOTBALL season and I have to keep in touch with my two football pals during the games. Also, to continue today's trend of not politicize the food blog, if Akin's const*tuents don't fire him we should disown the whole state. Sorry in advance to any Missiourians.

    Good morning Flamenons. How is everyone doing today?

      At least it wasn't ABBA--What's up Sista'? I see that a Big Blowhard ( besides the Republican Convention ) may be heading toward Tampon Bay. Prepare NOW....

      August 22, 2012 at 7:24 am |
      • AleeD®

        ABBA: American Body Builders Assoc? I see nothing wrong with that! Wassabi Bro!? How're you & WD faring these days? Sounds like there shouldn't be a whole lotta water in a place called Tampon Bay. ;)

        Not to politicize a food blog, but if both events continue on their current paths, I think we'll have more fallout from the presence of the RNC than Isaac.

        August 22, 2012 at 7:59 am |
        • RichardHead

          Not to politicize this fine Food Blog but--ABBA stands for American Big Butt Association led by The First Lady. WD is worried that an Executive order will be signed for a Forced Diet on ALL pets as the First Dog must now go on a diet. When will it end????
          BTW-due to a falling out with Comcast ( who really,Really SUCK ) those who need to get in touch with me can now use my acct. Same screen name.

      How about a remix mashup to go with your morning coffee?
