This year I got on in the Manbird Invitational. C-Note Five Bill's Top Shelf Chili With Rectum Fyre didn't do well. Next year will be different, I will bring PC12303. It is an extremely potent chili and doesn't waste good steak and bacon on unrefined palates. I will not bring Seared Esophagus. They are not ready for Seared Espohagus.

Cactus was popular. So was eastern fusion. Iced chili didn't meet a positive reception.

Sunsail backyard pool

The sun sail came, with some help I put it up. Less leaves in the pool this afternoon, no difference in sunlight reaching the water. I'm thinking of getting two triangular ones to complete the effect.

I ran a steel rope from the deck across the yard. It'll be a good mounting point for the other shades, and maybe I can find led lanterns.

I started working on a killa chili recipe hoping to pass quals for the Manbird Invitational. Since I'm an open source kinda guy, I'll bore you with pictures and descriptions later.

One year

So the little one had is first birthday this weekend. Cuteness abounded, and was equilibrated that night when his pops and friends went to see Zombieland. Great movie, I'd recommend it to anyone. It's funny, gruesome, and doesn't try to shoehorn too ...
