Clouds ~ LO Chicken w/Cream Cheese ~ LA's 6th Street Bridge ~ Deer ~ Monday Football ~ Full Moon ~ Locate ~ Beer Day

Good 41ยบ  cloudy morning.

"10-27"= any return on number or subject?

Breakfast yesterday... a cooked chicken thigh (stolen from Dude's stash) heated in the microwave with a bit of chicken stock and some chive/onion cream cheese.... then put on top of spinach...
              ...with a tomato, of course! YUMMMMMY!

This is sad, the iconic 6th Street Bridge in Los Angeles is going to be torn down... 

Boyle Heights, Los Angeles: 6th Street Bridge receives farewell party ahead of January demolition. Officials deemed the historic landmark a risk in 2007 because of a chemical reaction causing it to crack and deteriorate.
Our Caveman Bridge in Grants Pass is so similar!

Thanks PattyK for this.....

Sunday the deer were out in back.....

They were happily munching the pears that fell off the tree from the heavy winds we got that afternoon....

Last night's football.....

This is one of my favorite shows on Sunday night.. Dog Tales. Here we get this show on KOBI TV 5. In the Los Angeles area it's on KODC, and independent station. You can look up your area on the website. Lots of great dog stories and photo gallery. I'm going to send them Dude's photo.
The full moon rose last night at 7:19 from behind the mountain....

"Oh.. you're a Police Officer?? Oh.. you're a Firefighter? That's cool. What do you make?"

"WHAT DO I MAKE?? I make holding your hand seem like the biggest thing in the world when I'm cutting you out of a car. I can make 5 minutes seem like a lifetime when I go in a burning house to save your family. I make those annoying sirens seem like angels when you need them. I can make your children breathe ..................when they stop. I can help you... survive a heart attack. I make myself get out of bed at 3am to risk my life to save people I've never met. I make your family safe from the drug crazed neighbor. I make you and your family safe when you hear someone downstairs at night. I make sure your elderly grandparent is found and safely back home. I run toward danger while others run away. Today I might make the ultimate sacrifice to save your life. I make a difference, what do you make?"
Yesterday took a quick run to town to mail a box to Kristen (her birthday on Saturday!), Ace for cracked corn, dropped off books and "stuff" at the community center store. Came home and the "locate" guy showed up. He has to mark the spot where it's "OK" to put in the new pole for the new TV dish.

He was so nice, and very funny! I said, there are no electrical underground and we don't have gas. He said, "you don't eat beans?" OMG.
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Tuesday. Ciao.

American Beer Day

Craft Beer, Microbrews & Premium

...Plus Hard Cider

Bravo to the microbrew!  Since the American microbrew movement started in the Bay Area in the early 1980’s, we've been blessed with great brews—and brewpubs—from coast to coast. We can still enjoy the great Belgian, German, and Czech imports that cross our paths too.
While there are wonderful websites that focus only on beer (you’ll find links to some of them in our Favorite Beer Links section), we will review occasional microbrews that are just to special for us to ignore. Craft beers pair well with fine food (even with chocolate).
The history of beer goes back at least 10,000 years, to Mesopotamia. Anthropologists believe that man first went  from a hunter-gatherer existence to an agrarian culture to be able to grow grain for beer. Later, the Bavarians added the aromatic and bitter hops. Beer is the number-one-selling beverage in the world. In the U.S., it outsells wine and liquor by 2-1/2 to 1. More than 100 different styles of beer are made in the U.S. If you’d like to tell us about your favorite craft beer, please send us a note.
