Good 50º hazy morning. The day yesterday for the most part was clear and sunny. The winds came up in the afternoon, blew really hard for a while, and blew all the smoke back into the valley.

A guy and a girl each toss a coin into the wishing fountain at the same time and start dreaming about each other, although they don't even know who the other is... The young man designs a bridge for a contest and wins. I was thinking at the time I wished I would have some more dreams about Jerry. Been a while. Well, lo and behold, I had a dream about Jerry last night, he was the bridge designer, and I wanted to take a picture of his drawing so I could show everyone! It was a nice dream and we talked a lot to each other. I woke up with a smile on my face! Sigh..............
Feel this way at times! LOL:
All I know. Nuff said. Happy TBT. Ciao.

National Filet Mignon Day
The most expensive cut of beef comes from the small end of the tenderloin, and accounts for less than 1% of the entire carcass. Boneless, it is ideally 2-1/2 inches thick (although it is sliced thinner) and 1-1/2 to 3 inches in diameter. The tenderloin runs across the back of the steer. Because this area of the is not weight-bearing, the connective tissue is not toughened by exercise. This results in extremely tender meat, the most tender of all beef cuts. It is lightly marbled and mild flavored compared to other cuts, and is best served rare to medium rare. The term “filet mignon” is a French derivative, the literal meaning is small (mignon) boneless meat (filet). On restaurant menus it is called filet mignon, tournedos, medallions, filet de boeuf and tenderloin steak; in the U.K. it is called fillet steak. Chateaubriand is the center, thickest cut from the tenderloin, and a specific preparation.
Or as Jerry would call filet mignon... figgley miggley !!!
