A quick post to say Happy to Thanksgiving to all my friends and family, and especially the extended family that occasionally reads the blog!
For those few who might not know I am, or at least have been in the past an avid fisherman. There is much more to that story, but suffice it to say up until the time I got out of college from early March until late into the fall I was fishing at least once every other weekend, often more like two and three times in a weekend. Something happened in there with work and other hobbies and it took a back seat. Fortunately for the last few years I have picked that long-lost hobby back up, not the same level, but something approaching it. Fortunately for me, my wonderful wife has also started enjoy it, at least on occasion and has even went out with me at night for catfish the last couple of weekends (and unfortunately has out-fished me on the occasions as well). Friday evening’s adventure is the setting of this story…
Given that my Reds are now eight games up and mathematically almost a lock, I had to give a few comments – especially after football yesterday.
A new tool to do something very similar to what I was doing before, but even better. Weekly Browsing is a great plugin for Firefox and gets my best recommendation for such tools.
While at the grocery last night, I made the suggestion to my better half that we get cream chease in a box versus that in the container and save a little bit in the process by simply using our own container when we get home. The idea carries over to a few other grocery items.
The last couple of months, as I think to have noted elsewhere, I have rediscovered an old favorite past-time – notably fishing! I am extremely dismayed however at the lack of American made fishing equipment and the shoddy stuff that is coming from oversees is much less quality then in the past.
