        And I am almost out of here. Either grilled shrimp or bacon-wrapped tenderloin tonight. Both are in the frig...not sure.

    Sounds good. Looking to do some salmon filets and couscous tonight. Figure I'll just experiment with some marinade/seasoning once I pull things out and prep.

    AD – MAJOR lump in the throat here. I do some volunteer work with the poor, so I know what you mean.
    RHead – Fish turned out great. Served it over rice, with a little soy sauce and a salad with ginger dressing. Not bad, if I do say so. I think my bride likes coming home to dinner already in the works.

    Head, you got to make that hay while the sun shines. Travel safely and enjoy the scenery and company of WD.

    AD – Bless your heart for what you do! May you and yours be blessed abundantly!

      Thanks Truth, it's great when I can make it happen....more often than not though for a multitude of reasons it doesn't. For this little gal ...I probably would have cut a check myself, if my proposal had been denied.....they are an expensive item,but well worth it. She is a tiny little thing going on 6 years old....The best gift I will get this year, was hearing her Mom on the phone when I told her.

      Thanks Truth-Crazy weather cuz this is normally a piece of cake run. How'd the blackend fish turn out?

    WD and I are resting in Jacksonville FL.. for right now. Gotta load in Plant City FL. tomorrow morning. Hell of a storm came thru and knocked us off our timeline but no problems now. AD is probably eating cupcakes!

    • Sir Biddle@RH

      Thought of you driving through the big mess that slammed Mississippi recently. Tell WD to put on the yellow rain slicker for pitstops.

        She hates it when that wind blows up the wrong end!

  7. Truth@RichHead, Biddle

    I have been slammed at the office all morning. Not a fun day here.

    November 30, 2010 at 2:20 pm |
  8. Sir Biddle@RH,truth,AD

    Wondered where you guys and Aurora were today. Been kind of quite without you.

    November 30, 2010 at 2:11 pm |
    • AuroraDawn

      Hey I have just had a busy day today! But, I managed to wrangle a life changing item for a very deserving little gal. Will save her parents thousands of dollars and poor little thing won't have to inject herself with insulin 3 times a day. I'm really happy.

      November 30, 2010 at 2:26 pm |
      • Jerv@AD

        Smiles. Just made my day, thanks!

      • RichardHead@AD

        Thank You Sunshine-Cupcakes later? You do damn good work for a worthy cause. Now DR.AD Truth has been having these NON-Political problems lately. Any remedies?

        November 30, 2010 at 2:58 pm |
  9. Truth@RichHead

    Was wondering where you were at?
    How are you and WD today?

    November 30, 2010 at 2:03 pm |
  10. RichardHead

    Truth has been a Very good Boy lately. Better call a DR. and have him checked out. Wassup guy's?

  11. Truth@EGrin, Biddle

    Hey, I've been laying off the politics since the election ;)

    November 30, 2010 at 1:46 pm |
    • Jerv@Truth

      Yeah, me too. And I have been laying off of eatocracy as well. Found myself spending more time here than doing my work and got way behind. LOL! Too much fun and food here to resist.

      November 30, 2010 at 1:54 pm |
      • Kat Kinsman

        And we're more than delighted to have y'all here. Sorry about all the politics. It's just what, sometimes.

        November 30, 2010 at 2:20 pm |
      • Confucious

        Ancient Chinese proverb says that a day without Eatocracy is like a day without food itself, the sustenance of life.

      I've noticed!

  12. Sir Biddle@EG

    I'm not taking sides nor complaining people are talking about it, I guess I'm jaded and tired of the political theater. Living in DC you see way too much of it from watching the news, to going out to eat at a restaurant, to meeting someone new for the first time.

    November 30, 2010 at 1:08 pm |
    • Evil Grin

      That's for sure.

      November 30, 2010 at 1:14 pm |
  13. Evil Grin

    On another note... there's healthy food court food?

    November 30, 2010 at 1:03 pm |
  14. Sir Biddle

    How about we keep this area closed to any political talk. I think the Food Safty act has people all nutty like the day we had the Vegan/Veggie/Meatlovers day a few weeks ago.

    Bad mojo man, too much negative energy flying around.

    November 30, 2010 at 12:52 pm |
    • Evil Grin

      That's just the way things are. An article will hit a hot button – usually about government regulations, tipping or veg vs. meat, and we'll all chime in and debate heavily for a few days until we lose interest or decide it's not worth it. Don't worry, we'll get distracted by a nice stack of pancakes before too long.
