Avocados ~ Shania & Horse ~ Lisa ~ Lasorda Rips ~ Laughlin Smilebox #2 ~ Icky Letterman is Gone

Good 54ยบ cloudy (what else is new!) morning.
Got an email yesterday from Mike Nelson (LASD ret) and the told me the following:
Ever wonder how restaurants always have ripe avocados? Put the unripe avocado in microwave for 45 seconds, let sit for six hours, it will be ripe, firm and tasty.
Ok, if you have a green avocado, try this and let me know if it works!!!
This video put a big smile on my face... Pat Reardon told me about it... Shania Twain sings and dances with her horse on stage in Vegas.... what a beauty that horse is!!!
