Really? Thumbs down? You may think that you wouldn't want time share property, but after three hours, a time share in Bangladesh may seem quite appealing.

Unfortunately the doctor who was supposed to be on hand at the Park and Gab to dispense my "try to be normal" medicine will be unavailable, so plan accordingly.

Fun fact about the word Tortilla

In Spain, tortilla means an omlet...which I found out after a horrible hangover from Spanish Wine the night before the night before in Madrid Spain. Did not help with the hangover, only water did.

In Mexico, a tortilla is a type of bread, made with flour, baking powder, salt and a bit of lard and *hot* water...as hot as you can tolerate it. Mix everything together, until it forms round dough ball. Pull off pieces from the dough and then form into smaller balls. Once you have completed this, flatten the formed balls by hitting them with the palm of your hand then begin rolling until you get the tortillia into a flat, round size. Throw it on a hot griddle and watch it do it magic. Flip it when one side is browned. Yummy with butter once off the hot griddle!!

I love reading your fun facts. Tortillas sound wonderful. Too bad that the Mexican restaurant for the Park and Gab won't be serving any. They decided to go more Tex than Mex, and will be serving biscuits. I complained to the manager, and he agreed that if you ask the waiter, he will substitute the biscuits for English muffins.

Help those in need.

Since July 4th had just recently past, those attending the July Park and Gab will have an opportunity to help.
Please bring your gently used fireworks to donate to those in need of used fireworks, and don't forget the coleslaw.

KeyResults fun fact: Spent "Sparkler" wires make good cache hangers that won't rust and vaporize for at least 4 months in a humid environment exposed to the elements. In 4 months you really should go check on your cache anyway. Besides, it's good for you after all those buttery hot tortillas you've been snarfin'

So, there you go. Hoover a few yummy tortillas and then go hang your caches on spent sparkler wires. Gloves help with the soot.

P.S. Don't really recommend using unspent sparkler wires unless part of an elaborate multi-stage night cache.

Just doin' my part. :)

I actually don't think it would be a good idea to consume the spent sparkler wires because they always seem to get caught in my teeth.

Don't be discouraged. I found out where to get an IPAD. Go to a store called BestBuy. Give them $500. They will give you an Ipad.

I am such a valuable source of information! O0

The Park and Gab will be here in just two days. Are you prepared?

Let's see...
First Aid Kit- check.
Bomb Shelter supplies- check.
Anti-fungal foot powder- oh, man. I knew I was forgetting something.

Bring a few ringworm burners just in case, it has been soggy out there.
