    Just came back from Yum Cha with friends in the Chinese restaurant at the Sydney Fish Markets. Plan to do as little as possible for a few hours while it digests, then walk the dogs in the park. Cooking flathead fillets in cherry tomato sauce with oven-blistered vine-ripened cherry tomatoes, Basil and Rocket (Aragula) for dinner later and testing the latest Pinot Noir delivery.

    Sounds good. I like my flathead rolled in flour/salt/pepper and then fried in butter. usually within a few hours of them flapping. But I haven't had much luck with the rod lately. Going out tuesday though, so that may change :)

    Update: sitting at home for the umpteenth Saturday in a row. Seems like this song becomes more and more my life

    Made a shrimp cocktail and Salmon dinner for my wife. She's pretty much housebound and bedridden these days due to her advanced COPD. So when I make her some of her favorite things to eat, it brightens up her spirits. It's the least I can do for her after putting up with me for 44 years.

    I had dim sum today. Really fun and tasty with things like pork pot stickers and shrimp dumplings.

    But then you realize, it has MSG :eek: and it makes you feel like you have been severely dehydrated. I'm just starting to
    feel normal again, thanks to lots of filtered H2O.

    Sorry to be a bummer.:(

    I had a great day.

    Decided I was getting too serious on the technical side of things, and after an hour's compulsory stuff, sat down, and let it all hang out with Carl Perkins.

    Crikey - I wish I could crank up my Twin Reverb. And my De Ville. And my Boogie M6 Carbine.

    One of these days I'm gonna let it all rip!

    I saw Which One's Pink totally kill it at the OC Fair, then checked out a couple of rides and helped my date with a funnel cake. Not too shabby, but I will need to hit the gym extra hard next week because I already used up my carb credits for the week on beer last night at karaoke... :rolleyes:

    Finished my 3 week, 12 state 5,000 mile trip today.

    It was a long one today. We covered 900 miles today. Yesterday was about the same.

    Sunday morning hangover, so that means bacon and Bobbie Gentry.

    Later on I'm being very English, having lunch on a village green watching cricket.

    I'm guessing that many of our American cousins won't be too familiar with cricket. Essentially it's an arcane form of open air theatre event which involves drinking warm beer all day while some fellers in funny outfits very occasionally run around a bit. It's like baseball, but much better.

    Now that's a bike.
    I had a Flathead for 10 years. Should have kept it.
