Setting Moon ~ Sleeping Bees ~ Yosemite ~ Peeling Garlic

Good 52º a few wispy clouds morning.
You can just see the moon going down over my mountain....(top right)

While I was out taking pictures I noticed the bumble bees sleeping on the lavender stalks and in the artichoke flowers...



England and the world is all a twitter about the new prince being born yesterday. Glad they have something to be happy about, because folks in this country are sure still dragging out that Zimmerman verdict. Now Stevie Wonder, Jay Z, Kanye, and Madonna are boycotting the state of Florida in protest. Oh, come on people! Madonna? Geeeeze......... There certainly are more important things going on and things that need attention. Doesn't anyone care about the flag draped caskets coming home instead of a dead druggie burglar????
Ok, off the


I was asked about the hats........

We had a couple Reserve Deputies who worked at the Sheriff's Biscailuz Pistol Range in ELA, who worked in the movie industry. They liked Jerry (he was the armorer for the department the last half of his Deputy career), and they knew he loved cowboy stuff, so they brought him the hats. They are autographed inside.

Messing in the kitchen I had watched a video on how to peel garlic fast.
Decided to see if it really worked, but didn't want to peel a whole head, just a few cloves. I took two matching bowls, pulled some cloves off the head of garlic, put them in the bowl, put the other bowl over the top, and shook them HARD for a few seconds.... Voilá...

Jeannie tried this, using two plastic bowls and it worked! Saw another video where the chef put the garlic cloves in a drink shaker...same result! Awesome! SOOOO easy and fast!

Yesterday I was shopping... James Van Praag was to be giving a show in September at the Rogue Theater. I stopped in to buy tickets, but the show manager said the date has been changed, and there was no indication when! Grrrrr..... Stopped in to see Brian then off to Safeway. My car thermometer said it was hot!
But here at home the temp was 99º. I don't know where the thermometer in a car is located, but it must pick up heat from the ground or the engine. Guys?

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Tuesday. Ciao.
