Phone Guy Back ~ Awesome Photographer ~ Whipped Cream Day

Good 33º late foggy icky morning.

After all the fuss with my blog yesterday and today I finally figured out that if I used it in the HTML mode I could add photos, but a real PAIN in the a**!!! I hope this gets straightened out soon, or I'm looking for another blog site.

Yesterday Bob the Phone Guy was back up here with 'Paul'. Apparently still a problem with my neighbor's phone. It looked like they replaced a lot of phone line. They worked on the line close to the house and then way down past the tractor shed on the property line....


Just playin' with Photoshop again stitching pictures....

National Whipped Cream Day

Here's one of my favorite 'whipped cream' uses...

Lawry's Whipped Cream Horseradish Sauce:
1 cup whipping cream
1/4 teaspoon Lawry's Seasoned Salt
2 tablespoons prepared horseradish, well drained, or 4 tablespoons finely grated fresh horseradish root
Dash Tabasco sauce

Whip cream until stiff peaks form. Fold in Lawry's Seasoned Salt, horseradish and Tabasco until well mixed.

Here's another one from Epicurean...

Our phone guy showed up about 10-ish and climbed poles, worked on several and finally cured the "problem", whatever it was. Bob is a super nice guy and knows his phone stuff!
