Black Cast Iron

If you like to cook and like classic old cast iron, may I present to you,

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, any man that doesn't know how to cook, or turns pale and sneaks away when confronted with the thought of food preparation, well, he's as useless as tits on a bull.

This nice blog incorporates the history, care and proper handling techniques of classic cast iron cookware. After just a bit of research in the archives of his blog I discovered a frying pan I purchased back in the 1970's is at least 100 years old; Its an old piece of Pique Ware. His photographs are top notch too. Take a look...

Have a great evening.
Intelligentsia word of the day - ebullient.


What Just Walked Through My Door and State Law Carry Bullcrap

Fella walks in this morning and asks if I'd like to purchase this little common Marlin model 60. It has a cheap Tasco 4x15 attached, condition is excellent, with a case. Asked how much...he mumbles a bit, shuffles his feet and told me he really needed cash in a bad way.

I ask again, how much. Poor guy glances outside and mumbles, "Is forty dollars too much?"

I paid him.

Change of subject.

You know what really pisses me off....go ahead, ask me....

I need to make a bank run this morning which will result in me walking out with a considerable amount of cash...considerable. Now, in order to conduct my business I am supposed to remove my carry weapon and walk across a large parking lot, into the bank, and back to my truck bare nakked....while packing a bag of federal reserve notes. In this neck of the woods democritters can smell cash two blocks away and I'll have nothing other than my size and willingness to use my fist to beat the suckers back.

State mandated bullcrap.

I should use some big words in my header to attract the intelligentsia of the blogger crowd....inside joke, talk among yourselves.


Blogger Question

Why in the name of all that is holy do I find myself with the need to refresh my blog page dozens of times in order to download all the graphics on my blog?  I've had this problem for the past two weeks. At times my pictures and blog links load, but seldom my follower button. Any ideas?

I'm ready to blow this critter to high heaven....
