Colcannon & Eggs ~ Errands & Projects ~ Vultures ~ Throw Back Thursday ~ Kristen

Good 33ยบ clear morning. Yesterday was a beauteous day. Clear and sunny. Hopefully today will be the same. Got lots of work to do outside.
Yesterday breakfast.... I took some of the leftover Colcannon and made a patty, put it in the frying pan, medium high with a little cooking spray on the bottom of the pan and some of  Julie's Hard Pressed Wild Mushroom Mayhem oil. After the patty cooked a bit I added in two eggs and let them all cook together. Dished it up and topped with mozzarella cheese! YUMMMMMMM!!!!

Projects yesterday included errands into town to post office, pharmacy, and Ace. Back home and then did some more investigation on information about our deceased deputy friend, Winston Elliott. With input from Rico at the BC Range and talking to Win's son Todd I am getting the 411 so it can be posted. RELAC (Retired Employees Los Angeles County) didn't have any information and he didn't belong to Sheriff's Relief. So, still working on this. Todd is going to call me back.
Out in the pasture yesterday was an odd sight... two vultures.. the one on the right had something it was eating (eewwwwww)  and then the one on the left started sunning himself...

Today is Throw Back Thursday.. here is Kristen with her pal Richie Vargo and Deputy Leo Jaramillo. 

My daughter Kristen has been diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer. She is 47 years old. With several doctors working on her side, as her daughter Alex calls them "Team Kristen", she is getting good care and information. A turn-around from the norm we hear about, Kristen will have chemo prior to the operation. She will start tomorrow and every Friday for 9 weeks. Then assessments will take place before the next step. Surgery will take place after that. It sounds as if she has super good and caring physicians. She goes to the Huntington Hospital USC Cancer Center on Fair Oaks in Pasadena. Please keep her in your prayers ... she is "my baby girl" .... still. 
And with her brother Brian ...

 All I know. Nuff said. Happy TBT, Ciao.

Poultry Day
Poultry Day celebrates chicken, turkey and other birds we commonly consume. Chicken and turkey are lower in fats, and cholesterol than other meats, making it better for your health. They also give you your breakfast eggs.
Celebrate Poultry Day with eggs for breakfast, a chicken sandwich for lunch, and barbecue chicken for dinner. Don't forget to cook up some chicken fingers for the kids.
Most famous Chicken: Looney Tune's Foghorn leghorn.
Chicken Philosophy: Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
