Let's brag a little bit. My wife's nephew Hoby is playing in the junior little league world series. He threw a three hit shut-out, had three RBI's and his team won the game at 10-0. At 14 he's throwing a baseball at 80 to 85 miles per hour. And he's a pretty cool kid too.

So - who do you want to brag about ? Don't be shy.

The rear engine 8 or 9 blade prop Shinden can't be that rare. I have one too but it is expertly painted and assembled with extra photo etched details.

Today I would not take the pediatrician's dismissive "he's just fine" and sheepishly walk away holding a 5 year old boy shrieking in pain.

After being spit out the rear end of the doctor's office I went around front and asked for a second appointment. The clerk said it would be another 3 hour wait and I said we would wait. A different doctor was alerted of our persistence. This Doctor determined there really wasn't any evidence of swimmers ear but instead it was a very sore neck muscle. He is now doing fine with massage heat and motrin.

The first doctor is the same one that claimed 4 years ago that our other son's ear was fine. 5 Hours of shrieking agony later, his ear burst. She always struck me as imposter. Perhaps she is good for serious conditions but is left wanting for the small stuff.

I had hoped to set the tone by making an especially outrageous claim about my own self, but most of the rest of you are restricting yourselves to saying nice things about the younguns in your families. Let's pick up the pace here!

(Not you, Farmer Michelle ~ announcement of one's own actual accomplishments is an entirely appropriate example of braggadocio ~ perhaps even more appropiate than the kind of hyperbole to which I resorted earlier.)

Okay, P-Gator, I invented the innernet and did have sex with that woman and bad news fir yous, P-Gator, I is the best blues singer that ever strapped on a resonator guitar... Might of fact, it weren't Son House that learnt up Robert Johnson. it was me... And whilst Iz at it, did you know that it weren't that Armstrong guy who first walked on the moon... Nope, it was me... Drove there in my 66 Volkswagen back in '68 and I can prove it... I was out drivin' 'round and hit a moon rock and lost a hubcap up there... Mark my words, they'll find that VeeDub hubcap one day an' you'll know it was me... Speakin' of Armstrongs, hey, after the Tour De France victory I challenged him to a 5 mile drag race up Pine Grove holler and beat him pedalin' an ol' girl's Shwinn... Sho nuff did... Ahhhh, did I mention that People magazine clled me up las' year and wanted to make me the "Sexiest Man of the Year" and put me on the cover an' all but I had to turn them down 'cause they only wanted to pay a little over $1,000,000... Heck, I spill that much every night walkin' to teh refrig fir chilly one... Sho nuff do....

But all this stuff ain't nuthin' compared to just how lucky I is to marinated to such a wonderful woman, the infamous, beautiful and multi-taleneted P-Vine... Did I mention that she can cook???

p.s. I spent 4 days in a flippin' truck with this bolthole once and he musta had a big head, eh? He was one of them intilleschual types I guess. I could tell. He used words like "analisis" a lot, eh? That is somethin' that has to do with your butt, I think. Maybe he is a proctocologist or somethin'. I tried to be nice and, like, come up with interestin' conversations and stuff, but it was not easy. You shoulda seen the weird looks. I ast him if he ever drove a snowmobile acrost the lake when the ice was just an inch thick. He said "No". The things he wanted to, like, talk about could put a mad dog to sleep in like 30 seconds or less, eh? "Have you ever been reamed out by a posthole digger?" I asks. He just stares at me with a funny little smile on his flippin' face. What a flippin' bolthole! I am proud that I did not punch him out. I am learnin' to be more tolarant of major loosers than I used to be.

Bobert, attaboy! Excellent bragging!

True story: I once sang onstage with Jeff Beck, Ron Wood, and Mickey Most. It was the winter of 1967-68, during the Jeff Beck Group's first US tour, at the Kinetic Playgound in Chicago, while the band was playing a simple 12-bar-blues jam as their final encore for the evening.

The then-unknown vocalist (Rod Stewart) jumped off the bandstand into the crowd; he huddled up with two fairly unattractive fat chicks, which I didn't understand until a few years later when I saw their pictures in People magazine and learned that they had been none other than the notorious Plaster Casters.

Beck started shouting at him to get back onstage and sing, and Stewart grinned and gave him the finger. I was up front jumping up and down and singing, and Beck called me up: "If he won't sing, you get up here and do it" (or words to that effect). So I did.

Although they were playing in a farily quick shuffle tempo, the first lyric that came to mind was from a favorite Buddy Guy s-l-o-o-o-w blues:

What can a man do when the blues keeps followin him around (2x)
Get hisself a half a pint of likker, sit there and drink 'em on down.


Then I spotted a guitar sitting in a rack and, pushing my luck, took one step towards it. Jeff Beck just needed his head, and two or three roadies immediately grabbed me and tossed me back into the audience. End of story.

Incidentally, I was so loaded at the time that, as time went by, I began to doubt that this incident had actually happened. ("I musta been trippin!") But last month, at a reunion where I met up with some of the friends with whom I attended that show, I learned that several other folks remember the same thing, so it must have really occurred. Oh, to be young again!

Well, I've been discovering my inner plumber and electrician lately. At our cabin up north, we've been having plumbing problems because particles of rust, probably from the well, have been floating through the pipes and clogging up the faucets. I've been learning how to take faucets apart and flush out the rust. And a couple of weeks ago, I replaced all the light switches—they were the old-fashioned kind that make a loud SNAP when you turn them on or off—with new silent switches. We're trying to get the cabin in shape so we can rent it out occasionally, and make a little money to defray expenses. Maybe this kind of work is commonplace to some people, but it's new to me, and I feel rather proud of myself for what I've accomplished.

The hounds had spotted me and I was running as hard as I could for 'base' through the neighborhood back yards. It was nearly dark and I didn't see the clothesline stretching across my path.

    I think I already said I was running hard. Well, that clothes-line caught me right under the chin....And I was running SO fast, that when they found me the next morning I was still spinning 'round and 'round that line by my chin!

Subject: Baby Back Ribs Recipe
From: jeffp
Date: 19 Aug 05 - 09:11 AM

Bobad asked for my baby back ribs recipe. Here it is.

First, pull the membrane off the underside of the rack of ribs. This can be done by working the tip of a butter knife under the membrane and carefully working it loose. Then use a paper towel for traction and slowly, but firmly, pull it off. Then rub the ribs (both sides) with the following rub.

Pork Rub

3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/8 cup sweet paprika
1/8 cup hot paprika
3 tablespoons black pepper
2 tablespoons coarse salt
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons celery seeds
1 teaspoon ancho chile powder

Mix with your hands until thoroughly combined.

Rub it in nicely until the ribs are nicely covered. Wrap the ribs and refrigerate for 1-4 hours.

Prepare the smoker. You will want to maintain a temperature of 225-250 degrees Fahrenheit for a 4-hour period. This will take a fair amount of charcoal. You also want several chunks of hardwood for smoke. I prefer fruitwoods for ribs. My favorite is a combination of apple and plum. Pecan and apple makes a nice combo also. Mesquite is too harsh for my taste and hickory can be tricky also.

Smoke the ribs at 225-250 for 2 hours. Then wrap them in aluminum foil and cook at the same temperature for 1 hour. Unwrap them and cook for another 1/2 – 1 hour until done. You may add more smoke during this period if you wish. They are done when there is about 1/2 – 3/4 inch of bone ends sticking out and the rack flexes easily when picked up with tongs.

If you like, you may baste with the barbecue sauce of your choice during the last period of unwrapped cooking. I don't, because I like dry Memphis-style ribs. Follow your own instincts. It's barbecue, not rocket surgery.

ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's not that bad, really. I only have to stoke the fire about once an hour. You could cook the ribs in the oven, but you would miss that smoky flavor.

BTW, you can do the same thing for spare ribs, but adjust the cooking time as follows: 2 hours unwrapped, 2 hours wrapped, 2 hours unwrapped. Should be just as delicious.


You should see when I do pulled pork. 2 Boston Butts will take anywhere from 10-12 hours to cook.

Reminds me of a famous football cheer at Benjamin Franklin High School in New Orleans, an academically elite "magnet" school and my kids' alma mater. The school actually has a very good overall won-loss record in most sports (especially, for some reason, in girls' athletics, where they've won state championships in several different sports), but they never seem to have enough big tough boys to field a competitive football team.

Anyway, after each of the many losses, this rousing chant could always be heard:

"That's alright, that's OK, you're gonna work for us someday!"

I'm going to brag about me now.... because I did a good thing and got crapped on at the end of it and I want some sympathy.

My mate with the broken leg has been doing a computer course. He was on his way home from the course when he had his accident and the following fortnight was the final module exam. He asked for, and was granted an extension and did the exam 2 weeks later, on this Friday (4 weeks after the accident). Limpit and I drove 30 miles to his house, picked him and his wheelchair up, drove them 10 miles into London to the venue, sat with him until the examiner turned up, waited until the exam was over, bundled him and his wheelchair back into the car, drove them the 10 miles back to his house, stopping for a very welcome late lunch on the way. We don't know if he passed or not, but the examiner was very positive. Limpit and I were looking forward to a bit of a sitdown and a chat with him, before our 30 mile drive home durinf rush hour. His Ex (remember that *EX*... they split up over a year ago) girlfriend turned up just as we arrived back at his place. Limpit and I carried his pillows in, his bags, his wheelchair, she stood chatting to his parents. I helped him into the house, got him settled comfortably. He'd had a stressful day and was starting to hurt, he just wanted to lie back and rest. When I came in with the last bag, she was sitting on his bed, practically on top of him and made it very clear that I was not welcome to stay and chat even for a few minutes. She didn't offer to help with any of his stuff, she didn't say thank you for helping him, or seem to want him to speak directly to me.... she sat so close to him that she knocked his bedside table over... she staked out her territory with her bags and blocked half the room against Limpit and I. I swear if she was a tomcat, she would have sprayed him.....

I had a lovely day, spending time with my friend, helping him to do something that he otherwise would have fretted over and would have wasted a 14 week course. I offered to do it, with no thought of reward (although he did buy lunch), because he needed help and I could provide it. I did a good thing and it got spoiled through no fault of his....

So I'm blowing my own trumpet cos I did a good thing.... but I'm also blowing off steam because I got the flick off at the end of it.

It's a midwing monoplane, conventional arrangement, was used in '44-'45 by the Japanese Navy. Revell made a 1/32 scale kit of it in the early 70's, and it's become very rare.
