Lt. Bill Reagan ~ Rico Suavé ~ Jimmy Duran ~ Laney Honey ~ Fake Crab & Veggies ~ Air Bag Recall ~ Mike The Man ~ Koda

Good 57º drizzly morning. Rain started yesterday evening. Haven't gotten that much, but everything out there is wet!
I just found out several days ago that a friend and Lt. I worked for as a Reserve Deputy at LASD Biscailuz Range and so did Jerry, had passed away in March. Bill Reagan. Such a great guy. Loved and missed! Here's a photo sent to me by Rico Escalante...

Bill Reagan is second from left in front row. Row 2 on left is Jim Klinger and next to him is Winston Elliott. Don't know when this was taken. Jerry went to work there in 1981 and Bill was a Lt. then. If anyone can give me names of the others in this photo, it would be appreciated!
(5-22 new info as to who is who... front row l-r: Bill Burns, Bill Reagan, Howard Slack, Don Kalaberloh. Row 2 l-r: Jim Klinger, Winston Elliott, ? . Row 4 l-r: _, Pappy Benton, _ . Back row l-r: _ , Ken Howland.)
Speaking of Rico 'Suave' Escalante.. today is his birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY RICO!!!! (he and his bride Annette)

Rico Suavé! LOL. Richard Escalante, civilian LE Tech for LASD at the BC Range in ELA.
Rico also attended the same high school I did, but he graduated about 20 years AFTER I did! Been a friend for a long time. He and his Annette, Charline & Sid, Dr. Mac, and Jerry and I would spend weekends at Dr. Mac's house in San Clemente. House right on the beach. Such fun. Good times Rico!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY MR. SUAVé!

Another special birthday today is Jimmy Duran (SGT LASD, academy classmate of my daughter Kristen, and husband of my pal, Olga!) HAPPY BIRTHDAY JIMMY!!!

First I took some carrot chips, tossed them with olive oil and garlic salt, and roasted them at 350º for 20 min.

In the mean time I heated the pre-cooked quinoa & rice. I reconstituted some Harmony House peas and green beans. Cut up some artichoke hearts, celery, and separated the crab.

I sauteéd the fake crab in a little olive oil and butter along with the mushrooms, celery, and chokes.

Then in went the peas/green beans.....

Next the quinoa & rice and carrot chips... Heated well... added in some coarse Sonoma pepper and sea salt.

This was OMGOOOOD!!!

Of course if you don't like the fake crab, use cooked chicken, sausage, salmon, whatever works for you. The veggies in this were really awesome!!!

Received this information from several people. I you are wondering if your car is one of them listed for the recall on Takata Air Bags... go to and in the top search window type in Takata recall. It will take you to a page where it will have a link to insert your vin number to get the information you need. Mine wasn't on the list!

Yesterday Mike was here to weed-eat. I told him to use the golf cart to make it easier than walking all over the place with the weed eater and the gas can.
Although, it worked great for him, Dude was JEALOUS!!!! Dude thinks the golf cart is his.. or he should be running with it or riding in it! Every time Mike moved it Dude barked at him.

Mike finished up and we sat and chatted for a bit with a Sin Fire and a wine for me. He left and the rain started! Then I see Koda, dog from about 1/2 a mile up the road, come running. He looked scared. I let him in the yard. Called his dad Sean. Fortunately Sean was on his way home and close by. Natch with the rain, both he and Dude were wet!

Sean said his daughter is getting married this Saturday and Koda hasn't been getting much attention. Guess he knows he gets some here!
Too wet out there to mow today. Guess I'll vacuum, mop, and dust. Thrills every minute!!!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy TBT. Ciao.

National Waiters and Waitresses Day

This is a job, along with being a nurse, I would never do. I so respect them all, and give kudoos to waiting on HORRIBLE rude nasty people and still keeping their cool!

National Waiters and Waitresses Day recognizes the value and importance of a good waiter or waitress. When you go out to eat, they represent the restaurant, and are all the difference between a good or a bad experience.
You already recognize your waiters and waitresses every time you go to a restaurant. That recognition comes in the form of a tip. The tip should be commensurate with the quality of the service.
You can recognize your waiters and waitresses on National Waiters and Waitresses Day by giving them a little something extra. In addition to a generous tip, a card or simple verbal recognition is sufficient.
Waiters and waitresses should recognize this day by making sure by providing exemplary service (as always).
