Good 26º frozen morning.
Yesterday while everyone in So. Cal got drizzle and rain we had SUN!
Rod Johnston sent this, how right you are... this is the perfect anti-carjacking device! I love it!!
This fascinating video from Ron Weisberger (LASD ret) ... the pre-warm up for the video says "I did not know that any raptor had the ability to do what is filmed." In the original email it says: "This footage was taken at Mallard Lakes in Baton Rouge, La. Someone had shot a 'nutria' and it was floating dead in the water. I can't believe what this Eagle did to bring the nutria in. I never saw an Eagle do the breast-stroke before." The person who passed this on said, "As far as the animal being described as a 'nutria', I have my doubts since a nutria is a fur from a coypu which is indigenous to South America, but it's definitely something heavy. Click the link below...."
Being the Doubting Thomas that I am, I found the following information on a 'nutria'........
The coypu (from the Mapudungun, koypu), (Myocastor coypus), also known as the river rat, and nutria, is a large, herbivorous, semiaquatic rodent and the only member of the family Myocastoridae. Originally native to subtropical and temperate South America, it has since been introduced to North America, Europe, Asia, and Africa, primarily by fur ranchers. Although it is still valued for its fur in some regions, its destructive feeding and burrowing behaviors make this invasive species a pest throughout most of its range.
So, anyway, watch this video. I was blown away! So cool.

Dinner... another one of those super easy put everything in the rice cooker meal : Quinoa and rice blend, Taboli, rinsed and drained black beans, sweet potato, sweet peppers, mushrooms, chopped asparagus, Simply Asian seasoning. and fake crab.
First I cooked the sweet potato for about 4 minutes in the microwave, peeled and cut it into pieces. Layered all the ingredients starting with the quinoa and the taboli and then added about 4 cups of water and turned it on.

Losing your teeth may have been a bit alarming when you were little'until you realized there was someone to pay you the big bucks for your discarded choppers. Too bad the tooth fairy only deals in baby teeth' those wisdom teeth you had pulled probably would've fetched a pretty penny.
