    Morning all,

    Running a little late today, got to get going to the fitness center.

    Did finish installing passengers in one of the dome cars, both levels, now to put it back together. [​IMG] Only 6 more cars to go.

    Looks like the grass is starting to green up, need to give the roses the spring pruning and do some cleanup of winter debris.

    Jeffrey, That breakfast looks better than what I had.

    Take care,

    Morning. Slept late. Tired from sleeping with one eye open in Yankeeland [can't trust those Yanks]. :rolleyes: Had a great time. Glad to meet all and especially Ngauger. Got to run. Will post pictures of GRITS when I get photos downloaded. Have a good one.

    We are enjoying a string of 80* days, unusual for March.

    The dog is getting several daily walks and loves it.

    We had to cut one short today as the lawn spray guy was out, he spayed a neighbors yard next door and one down the block.

    I went in and shut all the doors up.

    I don't need that junk in my liver and we had a dog die with liver cancer so those lawn services I think are toxic at least on this street.

    We will go out later. I am training her to stay when around people and behave a little better. The dog can be toxic to old folks and children too. She will jump sometimes so she takes her walks traditionally late at night or early morning.

    They are coursely ground corn. That will serve till the Chief corrects me. :)

    You boil them in water till you get a creamy consistency, apply a liberal amount of BUTTER and salt and pepper. On occasion cheese is added as well.

    Some of us cheat and do them in the micro.

    Grits are like cream of wheat but corn rather than wheat.

    Good with cheese or scrimp among other ways. Mostly with butter.

    Grits are a waste of corn that could be used much better to get pigs and cattle ready to put real food on the table like steaks and chops!!!!sign1
