    It has arrived

    In just two days the pan has made fried and scrambled eggs, hash browns, taco meat, browned tortillas, and something else the wife made that I did not get to eat but I did get to clean the pan afterwards. A touch of oil or butter and this thing is great...eggs slide around and nothing sticks. I really like the size of this pan. 6 cooks and it's looking like this.....

    Pulled the Jeep out.

    We had a decent few hours this afternoon and I had a little time so I pulled Apple out of the garage for the second time since October. It fired right up once the carb filled with gas. I wiped her down a bit and took the dog for a spin around the neighborhood. I can't wait for the weather to get better so I can drive it more....I miss driving it. I'm going to change the oil and check all the box's for gear oil the next time I take it out and make it ready for the summer.

    Heart attack on a donut?

    We had a secretary that would take maple bars and stuff them with bacon, egg, and taters......I never ate one but they look good.

    Dayum Getting old aint for the weak

    That's where I'm at with my shoulders. I have known they are bad for 20+ years. I don't want to take the time to have surgery on them but one is getting so bad it feels like a heart attack in my chest and shoulder all the time.....getting hard to sleep with it. I have too many places breaking down at once and it's scary knowing they wont get better on their own.

    Dayum Getting old aint for the weak

    Get it done. I'm in the middle of a goat rope with my doctors....they tell me one thing then do another....only consistency they have is taking my money. I'm getting pretty tired of the run around. I know where I need to go and they wont refer me.....glad your docs are listening to you.

    Baby got new shoes....

    I finally got new tires on my Blazer. I have been needing them for two years but I just could not get the old one's to wear out. I finally aged them out as they were cracking and getting hard. I could have driven them all year most likely but they were worthless in the mud. I have put three sets of these tires on my 3/4 ton pickup and love them. They ride nice, get decent miles on them even pulling heavy loads and they ride fairly quiet. They are great in the rain and don't do too bad off road. They don't crack or rot and I still have two of the tires from my first set on my big trailer and they are going strong at almost ten years old. Those will get replaced soon though. Anyway these were out of stock for a long time and I checked today and they had them back again.....I pay $156 a tire for 245's on my 3/4 ton at 10 ply rating. These are 265 75 16's...a tad larger and they were $146 a tire and I thought he said D rated.....turns out my bad hearing missed him saying E rated, so they are 10 ply as well. These things make this Blazer ride baby butt smooth. So glad I checked to see if they came back in stock....happy happy happy....

    It has arrived

    My new 12" Stargazer cast iron pan made it today. I ordered it back a while ago and this one was made on the last day of the first production run from Oct into Dec. They now date code the pans on the handle which is a nice touch. I ordered this one bare and I am going to follow the instructions and do a two coat seasoning. My smaller pan I coated with 7 coats and it was too much as the coating chips off. I'm hoping to make this one work well with just two coats. They come coated in mineral oil that the instructions say to wash off in soap and water then dry it in the oven before seasoning. I don't want any rust to form so I clean it off with alcohol instead. I clean it until no more gray comes off and all the oil and dirt are gone. Warm the pan up and coat with oil then wipe it off and into the oven it goes to smoke it off. The wife is going to kill me because I'm smoking up the house seasoning it inside the kitchen.....yikes!. I hope this pan proves as handy as the last one. We are doing 90% of our cooking with cast iron now. I'm using virgin flax seed oil again as a seasoning.

    Smokin a big fattie today

    Both are pretty dang good. That fattie is going to make a great breakfast. The wife wants it on toast with a fried egg on top in the morning. I now have a plan to make another one using ground beef and stuffing it with cheese, onions, peppers, and some pickles and then slicing it into hamburgers once it comes off the smoker. I'll use bbq sauce on it as I roll it and then smoke it all in.

    Is this Pistol NY compliant?

    He calls it a semi auto......it is not by today's standards a semi auto. It's simply a 40 shot revolver. A semi auto has to load the next round from the firing of the first...not the trigger pull. Cool gun for sure.
