In the middle of our very own frigid stretch here in SoCal. It dropped to/below 32 the other night, and the locals on Facebook were all talking about how to get the frost/ice off their windshields. Had couple days with lows in the mid-30s and highs in the mid-50s, and as I say this it's only 39 right now with a high of 61 predicted today.

Looks like a lot of rain and chilly weather the next week or so as well, with highs most days in the mid-50s. But it doesn't look like we should revisit the same lows--only one day in the next week is forecast for the low to dip below 40.
not the best golf weather on the monterey peninsula late this afternoon

Flying is kinda crappy. That’s what my stream of unconsciousness is saying.

Took ten 10 year olds bowling for a birthday party today.  Offered the girls cash for getting pins outside the rake and converted splits.  Paid out 3 winners.

I'm taking the oldest to the Omaha airport this afternoon, she's flying to Denver to see a concert.

If the roads are good I'll continue on to Lincoln to buy the youngest dinner and make sure her car is maintained

otherwise I'll be watching golf and removing the snow from the driveway

I've been trying to get my wife to take an Alaskan Cruise.   She thinks it is for old people.   I'd show her pictures of kids or activities we can do as a family but she has it in her head it is a retirement cruise.    

I want to do some of the glacier activities while I'm young enough to do them.    Plus, I've never been to Alaska.  I'd love to sit on a balcony and watch the landscape/ocean while sipping on a scotch.

That should be a good argument! I doubt many retirees try out crampons and ice axes.

Bob Costas reveals he was pulled from the Super Bowl coverage last year for speaking about the concussion links to football.  Good look for the NFL, usually those on the right side of history are those who attempt to shut down any opposing views.

Alaska is a bit hard to see without the cruise, doable of course but probably not in a week.  I view this as a recon mission in effect, seeing if there are places we'd like to see again.

We did that in the last cruise and came up with a Big Nope.  Havana was a dump, really worse than I expected.

Very odd, Darius Rucker, Tiger Woods and the Stanley Cup all converging on one night at a dive bar in East Lansing.  He says Tiger was 18, which would put it at 1994, but no MSU players on the '94 Rangers.  But the '95 Devils had Danton Cole, who is now MSU's head coach.  So I'm going to say this was summer of 1995, and current MSU head coach Danton Cole was the MSU player who brought the trophy

A few years ago my dad and brother and I rented an RV and tooled around the Kenai peninsula for a week.  Saw lots of neat stuff, and definitely realized I do not want to live in Alaska.

Ranking the Big Ten's Football Rosters for 2019

https://athlonsports.com/college-football/ranking-big-tens-football-rosters-2019

Below are the national recruiting ranking averages for Big Ten schools over the last five (2105-19) classes according to 247Sports' Composite Team Rankings and each team's record over the last five (2014-18) seasons. Obviously, this doesn't take into account attrition but, over time, this should be considered relatively even across the conference.

Ohio State remains the gold standard, but is that about to change?

The SEC recruiting rankings and games won correlate very highly.  Miss State has done a bit better than their recruiting, and so has Florida (conference games won).

Interesting connection with Mullen there perhaps.  There is no "Wisconsin" in the SEC (duh).  

https://athlonsports.com/college-football/ranking-secs-football-rosters-2019

UGA is 19-11, which sound decent, but Bama is 37-3.  UGA is close to Bama in recruiting raw numbers, but not in wins.

Ohio State has always recruited well, but Urban took them to another level. Time will tell if that can be sustained.
On another note, Wisconsin is recruiting better than it ever has (according to STARZ and all that).

Wisconsin now is a semi-helmet, they should up their recruiting as a result.  Were I an OL or RB, they'd make my short list.

QB too, perhaps, if I thought I was pretty good and only wanted to ride pine at Ohio State.  If Wisconsin can pull in just a few 4-5 star types, they could easily get into top ten every preseason.

I can imagine Caribou and moose.  I've had some in the past.  not smoked ribs, but I'd rather stick with my corn-fed beef and pork
I'm guessing the salmon there is better than what I get in Iowa.  Heck the heads might be much better than the Iowa fillets
not much of a swimmer, current in the Missouri is too strong, otherwise landlubber

I prefer to remove the skin and cook them on direct for 2.5 minutes per side. Best served with a vinaigrette sauce, with a side of pasta and veggies.



Ping me if you'd like a recipe. I get so much damn salmon... I have to create a lot of things.

this is a magic dish with salmon- give it a shot... takes no more than 20 minutes or so to prepare to perfection:

couscous
golden raisins
olive oil
butter
coconut milk OR canned pina colada 
salmon fillet
black pepper
capers
lemon or lemon juice
baby spinach
ginger sauce

set water to boil, add touch of oil and touch of butter and couscous along with a handful of golden raisins- adding one part short of water and adding coconut milk in it's place halfway through...  if you like it sweeter, replace coconut milk with pina colada mix- not the solid part, but the liquid.. this is too sweet for my taste but most really like it. 

lightly coat salmon filet in olive oil, add some butter to skillet, and saute with slightest amount of sea salt, peppers, and capers- a touch of lemon really sets it free.

in same skillet once fillet is done, remove it add baby spinach and saute it as well- wilting it.  add touch of sea salt to make it pop.  just a touch. 

make bed of couscous on plate, surround it with spinach, lay fillet over top- decorate with ginger sauce.  

i made this for my GF now Wife on our first Valentines Day, and I'm now required to do so every year... I don't mind, it's REALLY good.

i used to own/operate a cigar shop- a dude adjacent my shop owned/operated a hair salon... he was as straight as an arrow though he didn't look it at all, and man-oh-man you should have seen the ladies he poured through... he also dabbled in music, playing in several bands and playing solo. he cut a record or two along the way.  he opened for hootie and the blowfish before they were hardly anything more than a college band playing the south carolina circuit.  my buddy needed an opening act so he called Darius.  They agreed- HatBF opened, and Matt came in behind them as the headliner... after the show Matt went looking for the manager to get paid, and found that Darius had taken off with the paycheck for both of them!! he was PISSED- as it turned out, HatBF played at that bar semi-regularly and the manager didn't think twice about it... He never got his money back from him, but at least they laughed about it some years later.  I don't know what happened to Matt, been years since i've seen him.

Pretty sure I'd be asking Darius for the money, with 20+ years interest, right about now.  He can afford it. :)
