Dentist ~ Bear ~ Restaurant Joke ~ Delmonicos ~ Cheese

Good 39º very foggy morning. Yesterday another 1/2" of rain.
Yesterday was errand and chopper cleaning day. I picked up some homemade Manhattan style clam chowder from Jennifer at her work and dropped off some things for her. Teeth cleaned by Liz. 

Liz and I had a fun time chatting about everything!  I only see her twice a year and was thinking we should get together for lunch! (Whadda think Lizardbreath?) After the 'whites' were made pearly again Dr. Susan checked them out. Said all was good!  Was going to do some shopping afterwards, but only stopped by Brian's office to drop off some stuff. By then it was 5:30 and I hate driving in the dark. Besides the wind was horrendous and rain coming down like crazy, so came home.
This came from my friend Gracie Elliott (LASD ret).... a bear intrudes on a filming out in the boonies...   You will smile!

Saw this on FB.... made me laugh because I am ALWAYS taking pictures of my food....

Historically this date...
1920 – The American Civil Liberties Union is founded.
So, check out the founder...... no wonder they are assholes!
The first 'chairman' of the ACLU was Harry F. Ward:
(1873–1966) was an American Methodist minister and left-wing activist. He was the first chairman of the ACLU, leading the group from its creation in 1920 until 1940. Ward was a prominent defender of Soviet Communism even if he did not label himself as a Communist.
1981 – Twenty minutes after Ronald Reagan is inaugurated, at age 69 the oldest man ever to be inaugurated as U.S. President, Iran releases 52 American hostages.
.... see, they knew who they'd have to deal with, not like the wuss in the White House now!

And births this date include....
1896 – George Burns, American actor, comedian (d. 1996)

1920 – DeForest Kelley, American actor (d. 1999)
In the second picture, he looks like a tired Dr. Oz!

1926 – Patricia Neal, American actress (d. 2010)
Never could stand her acting ... especially her voice!

1929 – Arte Johnson, American actor

1937 – Dorothy Provine, American singer, dancer and actress (d. 2010)

1958 – Lorenzo Lamas, American actor
While watching Blue Bloods on Monday night, Police Commissioner (Tom Selleck) was dining at Delmonicos. That restaurant was on my bucket list and when I was on a cruise with the Deputies On The Go from NY to Nova Scotia and back... my friend Joan and I ate there. She was a New Jersey girl and gave me the 'Nickel  Tour' of the city. Outside the restaurant was this NY cop..... twirling his baton! LOL...

Beautiful restaurant! We were really early, ahead of the crowd.

A Delmonico steak and onion rings. YUMMMMMM   Great food and super service!

So, on Blue Bloods I took this off the TV... Selleck standing in front of Delmonicos (in the white coat) ... where he ended up getting shot!

Since it was Popcorn Day, I had some for dinner... along with a mini pizza. Then it was chair, wine, and more Blue Bloods! The Manhattan Chowder is for tonight.
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Hump Day. Ciao.

National Cheese Lover's Day
Today is National Cheese Lover’s Day! Did you know that the average American consumes about 31 pounds of cheese each year? That may seem like a lot, but for the average French person it’s 50 pounds!
There are more than 900 known cheeses in the world, and they can all be classified by texture. Here are the primary classifications and some examples: fresh cheese (ricotta); soft cheese (feta); semi-soft cheese (Fontina); semi-hard cheese (Gouda); hard cheese (Cheddar); double or triple crème cheese (Brillat-Savarin); blue cheese (Gorgonzola); washed rind cheese (Limburger); and bloomy rind cheese (Brie).
People have been making cheese for at least 8,000 years, so the cheeses we enjoy today are all relatively young by comparison. Take Emmental (also known as Swiss cheese), for example. It’s only been around since the first century BC!
Visit your local cheesemonger and pick up your favorite kind of artisan cheese or cook a cheesy dish for dinner tonight in honor of National Cheese Lover’s Day!

What a gorgeous restaurant! So that's what they named that steak after, right? It reminds me of Disneyland's Club 33. Very rich with dark woods. I'll bet the price was rich too but hey, for a bucket list item, why not?

I'm with you. I also hate driving in the dark, especially when it's raining. I always have to drive the ladies to bunco in the dark, rain, etc. Then when another lady offered to drive us, we get rear ended! Ug!

Love Manhattan Clam Chowder. Recipe?

Gerry's favorite steak is a prime cut of Delmonico from our butcher, in Whittier. Thanks for the reminder!

Love cheese! It was my day yesterday, and I missed it.
