    Oh my, that sounds the go, my butcher's in for a good day Saturday.....

    I am disappointed in the course many things have taken... but I'm too stubborn and independent minded to give in... so I will either die of sunstroke out in the field of the farm or be the guy in the wheel chair hitting on the ladies in the old folks home..... either way I die a happy man.... besides, there are too many people on my "Need to Piss Them Off" list for me to quit anytime soon!

    Beef shanks are awesome - even the grass-fed stuff is delightfully cheap.

    Do you like your clay Cooke, Joanie? I don't have one of those.
    Zanna, that looks like a great way to prepare shanks. I was thinking last night that even though I love them plain, it would be good to branch out.

    I love my clay cooker. I found four of them at an estate sale for $4-$6 each. I sold one (which paid for all four), one broke (bad design, it had a chicken head on top for cuteness), and left my big one in Oregon. I still have the small one and it's perfect for things like tough meat or a small bird (~4 pounds).

    Guess what I'm cooking Saturday......

    Have to look into getting some terracotta type stuff, it gets a good rap, will give it a dash in me cast iron pot this time.

    Janis Joplin, how about a little Joni Mitchell as well, she was drooling when she sang 'alf of it?!
    I've looked at clouds from both sides now, but I'm too stoned to remember what I saw...

    Maybe this is an interwebs time distortion or something, but my browser sez you posted this "Today, 4:02am" and in my world (one time zone away from yours) "today" is Thursday, July 11. Even my computer is telling me that.

    PLEASE don't tell me today is Wednesday. I already lived through Wednesday, and it wasn't good enough to rerun.

    Crap - my ability to confuse has now gone from real life to the web. Sometimes I give my posts a title, and sometimes a date. I keep this journal in Word on my computer, but sometimes I post it here a day late. Or at least after midnight of the correct date. It's THURsday! It's all good. You don't have to re-live Wednesday.

    But you've given me an idea for a post that will show up either before Thursday ends or just as Friday begins. "Days I'd like to live again."

    Whew! Thanks!

    Although for me, as a Department of Defense employee, Thursday is my Friday because I'm one of those "lucky" people who are now furloughed every Friday. Yes, I get a 20% pay cut, forced time off without pay. It's Congress' fault. They're actually not working either, but they still get paid.

    And I'm glad to be of inspiration!

    It seems like no one gets what they want in the work place. I would have loved to work 32 hours per week for most of my life, but those jobs often came at stupidly low pay and with no benefits. And yeah, Congress always makes sure there's money in the budget for their lifestyle.

    There's an incentive to stay alive long enough to get into a rest home, might get some action.......
