another thing about tubing - holden & nacho were confined to this porch of the cabin 99% of the time because they are bad dogs. in the 2 minutes of freedom they had, holden dove headfirst downhill ravenously attacking the dirt where someone dumped fat from a grill, and nacho pooped in the river.

went tubing down the green river near saluda, nc this past weekend.
stayed in a tiny cabin with 4 people and 4 dogs and had a blast. it wasn't too fast but there were definitely small rapids. what's not to love about psychedelic smores, lemon thyme summer salad, and a case of pbr.

Frisée is some kind of gross lettuce with the texture of slimy, coarse, wiry hair. It tastes like nothing and ruins salads. Who wants the roof of their mouth tickled by furry lettuce? I refuse to eat any more of it.

my brother chris got married to an absolute sweetheart angela this weekend in newport rhode island. everything went amazingly well - the weather, the food, the happy families and friends - i can't imagine a more beautiful wedding weekend. they got married twice, once inside st. gregory's, the catholic church where chris & i were baptized, and the next day at the inn at castle hill overlooking the water with sailboats in the background. it was all pretty freakin awesome.
this is a picture of their first meal as husband and wife at the fine dining eatery jigger's in east greenwich. all the pictures are here - http://www.flickr.com/photos/skippyhaha/sets/72157621749269662/

should you ever find your kitchen overrun by fruit flies, i don't suggest trying to swat them all with a fly swatter. they are too small - they can escape through the wires of the swatter, and they are too fast - they scoot away.
this plastic wrap-glass trap works like a charm, though.
1. put apple cider vinegar in glass
2. cover with plastic wrap
3. poke a dozen holes in plastic wrap with toothpick
4. flies get in but can't find their way out
another suggestion i read on the internet is to put a rotting banana in the oven with the door open overnight. the flies attack the banana. early in the morning sneak in the kitchen and close the oven door before they can escape. turn the oven on to 425.

what do you love about botox? the giant needle? the botulism toxins that freeze your facial tissues? the way it makes you look like you're carved from wax?
if i had the chance i would absolutely fire the persons responsible for designing and ordering this craptastic makeup bag.
