    Now that's a very good snack. I don't have any pies in the house but I do have A&W root beer to make an Ice Cream float. Loved them as a kid and still do.

    Good morning all, 20° at chores time and not much warmer yet. Animals are fed and watered, boiler only partially filled as it had a lot of coals still glowing this AM. With the heat wave of the last 2 days (hi 40's) I was able to get 2 trailer loads of wood split and stacked. I got an hour of splitting done Sat. late afternoon and again yesterday afternoon. All the rounds near the bottom of the stacks are frozen to each other and need the help of a maul to break them loose. It might warm up again later this week for a shot at another trailer load. It'll beat being stuck in the house and hibernating all winter. Let's hope the weather liars get it right. I even asked the wife if she needed me to drive her to her Dr. appointment this afternoon just so I wouldn't be parked on my butt all afternoon. Maybe I can get something done in the garage. Play safe out there.

    hi Sty57 - I was thinking about you the other day ... one of my hot rod BB's had the story on the background and such of how the Baldwin Motion Chevrolet up there in Bladwin, NY super high hp Chevelles, Novas and Camaros came to be. I had plenty $20.00 out on edge of town runs... and no shortage of stoplight to stoplight quarter mile runs. many ran hard, but never lost one! that 12.5:1 L88 427 NIC 'vette' BB, 4-speed and 4:88's (slicks on street) made for a heck of a hole shot on dem fords, goats and mopars... and pulled hard. I stayed away from the T-buckets with hot 327's! lol. prob wouldn't fare so well in these times. no, not up against 800hp turbo'd NOS asphault eaters... lol. but, dem was the times, they was all brand new down at the dealers... gasoline was about 20-cents a gallon for most needs. and you could go rent a Cessna 150 with an instructor to go flying for $12.50/hr! and $15,000.00 bought a heck of a nice home...

    no doubt a real tasty treat. one of my favs, too. my HS g/f used to work at the local A&W drive in. set up was similar to how the Sonics build their outlets. typical Big Boy Bob's burger joint... food trays on the side of the car's up/down windows.

    nope, you are right there RAY! in that aspect... we are all on the same route. only variable is when do we reach the destination? time does fly by it seems. faster and faster as we age. what I wonder at times is things like I saw on the tv yesterday. CBS Sunday Morning show. Octopus segment. interesting to say the least. and one of the most diverse, unique creatures on the planet as to structure. very intelligent they said at the octopus room at the marine aquarium... but I stumble on how in the heck... both living in the same environment... fish become fish, crabs become crabs... and the octopus is what it is. and... how come both fish and crabs have one brain... and the octopus has 9! ?? :surprised3: one main, and one smaller at thick end of each tentacle... now how in the heck do you get that to evolve?....

    sometimes I think I could use 5 brains... lol :laugh:

    have a nice day.

    hi RAY - the jury is still out on how good it would be, but they remain optimistic. never got around to grilling it. o_O a busy afternoon fireside, etc. wanted to watch the news, then 60 Mins. and relax some. an early steak dinner is on the agenda today, however... rain or shine! :D no, not a Wagyu. not sure if I will ever taste such. in some pricey NY joints, for example... can make the typical NY City $100 steakhouse steak seem more like a hamburger... I have read up on it some. seems 'the consumer' can buy it. but runs about $45/# or so. as one famous chef was known to have said (on film)... "it's all... in the morning!" so for my way of thinking... Prime at $12-14/# suits my needs just fine... :D

    besides, I hadn't fully opened one of my Christmas presents. my new box with bottle of C. Regal extra in it. thot would be nice to finally unwrap it all the way. pretty tasty stuff... bit bolder scotch taste and a bit smoother... but its like comparing 500 hp to 600 hp, well... imo! besides the warm fireside setting was more appealing at the time to bouncing around cooking, timing, etc...
