    Sunday was Ivan's birthday. Let's all wish the gentleman from Ione another year filled with good health and a wet line or two.

    Well hell a belated Happy Birthday. There used to be on here that when your birthday rolled around everybody read it here. I guess when he changed servers that had to go to the way side.

    Well, thanks guys-this was a birthday I was particularly glad to have! And it was a dandy. Susie was in Spokane on Thurs and brought home almost $100 worth of steaks including some flank steaks and top round for jerky. I marinated jerky overnite on Friday and cured it Saturday. I'm well stocked now.

    I wanted simple fare for dinner on Sun so it was baked beans with homemade BBQue sauce and the obligatory big T-bone cooked over charcoal. Just superb. The piece de resistance was the scratch built double chocolate cake with the hand made fudge frosting served with vanilla bean ice cream. We had debated not making the cake this year because it is so rich but I lost enough weight after my accident that a few thousand more calories can't hurt me. After 3 bites I was starting to get dizzy as the sugar rush overwhelmed me. By the time I was half done I felt like a seizure was a distinct possibility but I soldiered on and nearing the end a golf ball sized chunk remained that taunted me almost to say: "Go ahead-I dare ya'!" I couldn't do it, discretion winning out over gluttony.

    I'll try again today though. Thanks for your good wishes.

    Ive

    Ive, happy belated birthday. Glad to hear you are recovering.

    You can't beat steak and chocolate cake! Sounds like a great meal!
