im going to try that here soon brother
can you get us going on a good red slaw recipe?
yeah fiddy hushpuppies are like fried bread nuggets
the ones we used to make had corn in them too but i am sure there are a few recpies
/ive had them both savory and sweet style
hopefully rhode' will drop some more knowledge when he gets a chance
we have had a wet and cold winter here in socal too fiddy
it seems like its been raining on and off for the past couple months,which is a lot for us
the storms haven been that strong this year,
but they have been consistent which is actually good
/too much rain at once cause a lot of flooding and runoff issues
taking the bike back to the shop you got it from is a great idea
let them tune things up and give her a once over, plus its helps get you established as a regular customer
/good shops offer great service to everyone, but they really take care of their regulars
oh, be sure to bring the bike in clean(this is important) , at least give it a good wipe down and knock off all the mud if any
just go in and share the stoke with the wrenches and im sure they will take good care of you
we dont really have any special st patty day plans for this year
my mom has family friends coming in for the weekend so we might be spending sunday with them
/its still not too late to get a corned beef now that you mention it
other than that i was thinking of grilling up a steak or something like that and of course you know pops gone drank'
how about you man? got any plans
if nothing else its a great excuse for some day drinking
Good afternoon pop_rocks.
I could defenatly see putting some corn kernels into the mix. Speaking of savory and sweet I was suprised that the corn bread I had down south was as sweet as it was. I had always heard that southern corn bread have very Little or no sugar.
It's interisting that you mention the rain you've been having, I just saw somewhere that something like 99.9% of California is drought free for the first time in forever I think. We seem to be getting a little less rain than predicted but the water is puddling up everywhere. We usually don't have a lot of snow melt off like we are having now. With temps in the upper 50's today the frost should be comming out of the ground fairly quick and then the water can drain.
The place I got the bike is really good about taking care of their customers. They do free minor adjustments and such for the first two years after you get a bike from them. And if I need anything else that can recommend it. I might have them do the tubeless conversation but am still undecided. You are right that bringing in a clean bike is showing respect to the mechanics, when someone brings me a dirty uncared for motorbike to work on I'm defenatly not going to go the extra mile for them when I'm servicing it.
I don't have any specific plans for the weekend either but like you said, it's a great excuse to eat, drink, and be merry.
