Moon posted the photos I took at the Laughlin Reunion for all the retirees to see. I only took a few. More were taken by Owen Tong, Chris Miller, Buddy Fowler, and several others. Here's mine:

In the afternoon the geese showed up.....

I gave them some cracked corn and they hung around. The Gander will lay down and the Goose will watch over her!  

I made a run into town to mail a few things and took Dude. The geese were not even scared of me driving my car by them....
Back home I let Dude out at the gate so he could run.... OMGOSH, how he LOVES to run!!!

... and again when I drove by the geese they weren't nervous a bit...

Later for dinner I made a salad with cabbage, tomato, spinach, and celery. I made a dressing of Buffalo Ranch with some olive oil, a couple drops of lemon juice, and garlic salt.  Then I cooked an Omaha Steaks Stuffed Breast of Chicken in the oven.

    The chicken is stuffed with rice. OMGOOOD!

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Hump Day. Ciao.

April 19th
National Rice Ball Day

Here are today’s five things to know about Rice Balls

  1. The rice balls preserve very well, and can even be used to preserve meats or other foods within its airtight seal.
  2. The rice ball is traditionally Japanese.
  3. Typically the rice is soaked in vinegar and made to stick together.  Dipping it in soy sauce will cause it to fall apart again.
  4. Rice balls date back at least as far as the 11th century.
  5. Another word for the rice ball is “Onigiri”, a word commonly misused to refer to sushi.

Fun Fact:

Popular onigiri fillings include tuna salad, salmon flakes, seafood salad, konbu (a type of sea vegatable), umeboshi (a sour bright-red pickled Japanese plum), tempura, and even natto (eat this one at your own risk!).
“Onigri” literally means “to hold on to”.
It was believed that onigiri could not be mass-produced as the hand-rolling technique was considered too difficult for a machine to replicate. In the 1980s, however, a machine that made triangular onigiri was devised.
