April???

Yep, it's April.  Our local paper had practically the entire front page devoted to one joking article or another.  Jeez, I wish they wouldn't do that.  The news is so weird anyway that people are probably going to believe it to be true. 

Here's a idea I'd support as the next amendment to our Constitution:
"Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States ."

Right now Congress has it's own medical plan; retirement plan & a zillion other perks.  Making that amendment retroactive would be even better but I doubt ANYONE in Congress would vote for that!

It's been windy here in the desert.  Ordinarily I don't care but because of the rain we've gotten this year there weeds growing all over our rocked in yard.  It looks pretty bad I must say.  However, because of the wind you can't really apply the weed killer.  Bah humbug!  Today, it's fairly quiet so I'm off to kill weeds after I get done here.  Life in the fast lane, huh.  

I've been trying to do pizza on the bbq.  There are plenty of recipes, even Epicurious has one but I'm having a terrible time.  I keep burning the crap out of my dough.  (Using store bought dough, btw, I'm lazy!)  I'll keep on trying but have to let the laughter (from my wife) die down a bit.  The idea is that you cook one side of the dough then flip it over and put on the toppings.  I'm thinking I'll remove the thing from the grill while I'm loading on the ingredients.  It will probably stick to the plate & never come off but I'll deal with that later!  Of course not putting so much stuff on the pizza might also be an idea, LOL, but where's the fun in that?

Why not just use a pizza stone on top of the grill and bake/cook the old fashioned way?

Enjoy the wind - we certainly are not. With all the pollen, adding a bit of wind and it is sneeze and wheeze city. Makes me real happy I am no a hay fever sufferer.

I've reheated pizza on a grill before. Mmmm, char-grilled goodness.

Thanks for swinging by my place and good luck with the weed killer. Safety goggles and a mask, my friend.
