            I know, just messing around. Every time some one says something is white or black, we joke "why's it gotta be white" or "why's it gotta be black".

              I have this week off for vacation. No big plans, just doing some work for the family and a few things around the house.
              Anyone can tear a man down, few can build one up.

                GO HOKIES!!!

                The son of my good friend Sue is going there now. Such a big school, I doubt they know each other though.

                We're going to a friend's house in WVA for the 4th. Fireworks and croquet on his big nice lawn. He's also got a pool so we can lounge around in between the games. Some of us are staying in tents around the grounds (he has 6 acres backed up to National Forest), some are staying in the house. Mainly it's a chance to get away from cell phones and such. And we already have about 30lb of smoked pork to take!! I'll probably stop at one of the local farm stands and get the corn.
                I put it all back together better than before. There\'s lots of leftover parts.

                      We went to a 40th b-day party/ 4th of July cookout. The honoree works for my boss' mechanical division. I did the underground plumbing for the tool shed/shop the party was in, so I got a lot of props. I only ate 4 hamburgers over 5 hours, so I was kinda disappointed in myself. My boys bounced on a trampoline for hours and chased around the goats. The neighbor has a mini herd of goats, and gave one to Paul for his birthday. They are in the city limits, but on the far north edge of town, both houses are zoned agriculteral, so the goats are cools with the authorities. Then we went across the street and watched a private fireworks display in a hayfield, about 35 minutes long, amazing. The temp topped about about 75 degrees, sunny and breezy, a perfect day, the coolest 4th of July I can remember. I think this global warming is bullshit. Today is my dad's 73rd b-day. I live about 3/4 of a mile from him. We will go down there later on, what a great weekend, what a great country!

                          i think we are going down to my friends farm having a cook out with corn cooked on the grill [ you cut the top and bottom off the ear of corn then put it in a bucket of watter for an hr then put on grill and cook until corn is soft ]
                          I put corn in salt water then continue with the above statement.



                          we lit some fireworks a little early for the kids and after we were done, the big show started. Several families in the neighborhood buy $1000 worth of fireworks, have the street blocked off and light away until midnight. It's the same families that compete with their halloween decorations and they get crazy!

                              I use Kosher salt, cause it's coarser. It is suppose to make the corn more tender. I don't know if it is true since I just do it to all of it

                              You should put salt in the water of half the corn and just put the other half in plain water and see if you taste a difference

                              Please report back. You know how everyone gets when advice is given and we never find out the outcome
                              I love my plumber
