Rain ~ Clouds ~ Egg Experiment ~ Only 100 People ~ Erika & Spencer ~ Joyce Kruger ~ Wade Duncan ~ Ponder ~ Apple Strudel


Good 50ยบ dark gloomy rainy morning. More rain yesterday afternoon and last night. Just sprinkling though, so about another 1/10".
 
 
The clouds again yesterday were beautiful...


I did some more exciting things... vacuuming, laundry... etc.
 

Breakfast was an experiment. Pal Pat Reardon said he and Alice like cooking their eggs in just a porcelain dish with a saucer on top instead of the Egg-Tastic. So I put two eggs in a bowl, bacon salt, pricked lightly each yolk, and set in the bowl a stuffed baked potato (Omaha Steaks) I had cooked the night before, put the saucer on top, microwaved 1 min 40 seconds.
Took a few seconds longer (normally about 1 minute would be enough) as it also had the potato also... 

I served the eggs atop baby spinach and a side of small beets.    GOOD!!!!!


 
Here is a little video of some interesting stats.. if the US was only 100 people.... how everything is divided...

More things to ponder from Gator..
Why is it that people say they 'slept like a baby' when babies wake up like every two hours?

Why are you IN a movie, but you're ON TV?
 
Why do people pay to go up tall buildings and then put money in binoculars to look at things on the ground?
 
Why do doctors leave the room while you change? 
They're going to see you naked anyway...
 
 
Later I was not hungry so dinner was just peanut butter on a muffin.
 
 
All I know. Nuff said. Happy TGIF. Ciao.
