Later was back therapy, stop at the post office, and Ace for cracked corn. For dinner I decided I wanted a pasta dish. Thawed out ground turkey and added in some of my marinara sauce.

I reconstituted the mushrooms and then squeezed them dry with a towel. Sauteéd them in olive oil with lots of garlic and some Rosemary. Set aside and sauteéd the turkey with seasonings. Added in the mushrooms, marinara sauce. Cooked the pasta and added that. Sorry, no picture, but it was GOOOOOOD!!!! Oink oink....
Here are two favorite Budweiser commercials... the first one from 2014:
This one from 2015:
Chair, wine, and TV. I was going to watch that OJ movie I recorded but changed my mind, as I knew the outcome and he's a jerk anyway! Watched Chicago PD and Chicago Fire.
All I know. Nuff said. Happy TGIF. Ciao.

(^our local weatherman, Adam Colpack)
National Weatherman's Day honors weathermen, and woman who work hard to accurately predict the often fickle weather. Despite major technological advances and supercomputers, forecasting the weather is still a tricky, and ever changing business.
Knowing the weather is important in so many ways. It affect how we dress, where we go, and even if we go. Space launches are made or delayed depending upon the weather. And, knowing the weather can save lives. The most obvious example is knowing when and where hurricanes or tornados may hit.
According to the Air Force News, Weatherman's Day "commemorates the birth of John Jeffries, one of America's first weathermen". Jeffries was born on Feb 5, 1744. He kept weather records from 1774 to1816.
If you see a weatherman today, give them your appreciation for a job well done.

WOW! What a fabulous building! Imagine the cost! It's absolutely breath taking! It would be worth the trip to NYC just to see it!

Some very interesting reads today about Belle Starr and then the twins. What a sad life.

Have a good day!
