Good dark cloudy 41º morning.
Yesterday high winds were predicted, but we didn't seem to get any here. My friend Jeannie said they did in Grants Pass. Guess the winds couldn't get over the mountain! :o) We stayed in the low 50ºs.

Interesting about the St. Louis Gateway Arch...
The Gateway Arch is a 630-foot monument in St. Louis, Missouri. It is the world's tallest arch, the tallest man-made monument in the Western Hemisphere, and Missouri's tallest accessible building. Built as a monument to the westward expansion of the United States, and officially dedicated to "the American people," the Arch, commonly referred to as "The Gateway to the West" is the centerpiece of Gateway Arch National Park and has become an internationally recognized symbol of St. Louis, as well as a popular tourist destination
The Arch was designed by Finnish-American architect Eero Saarinen in 1947; construction began on February 12, 1963 and was completed on October 28, 1965 at an overall cost of $13 million (equivalent to $80.6 million in 2018). The monument opened to the public on June 10, 1967. It is located at the site of St. Louis's founding on the west bank of the Mississippi River.
The two easiest ways to cook a roast...
#1 Take a 3 pound roast (sirloin tip is my fav).
Heat oven to 300º.
Place roast in heavy pan, grind lots of fresh pepper on top. Bake uncovered 3 hours.
3, 3, and 3 !
#2 Put a 3 pound roast in crockpot. Grind lots of fresh black pepper on top. Cook covered on low for 3 hours. Then add 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup with garlic. This makes the best gravy!
Then add small Yukon Gold potatoes and small carrots. Cook another 2-3 hours.
