Howard......I'm just across the bay from Forked River....north end of LBI.....if you haven't been to Forked River recently, you are in for a bustling area with recent influx of NYC area retirees .......55/over communities everywhere....

you would need brighter lights to ride your bike there now.....

Re: Quick-Dry-Cafe February 2013

Patti, I grew up in New Jersey, went into the Air Force, traveled to Greece and Turkey, then Wright Patterson AFB just north of Dayton. When discharged, entered DAI and lived in Ohio for a couple years before moving to Florida. Darn it, after moving here and trying desperately to discourage it, most of my family followed me here. I went to USF and the Ringling College of Art and Design (then it was known as the Ringling School of Art and Design). That is the short version. Now I teach at Ringling now and again.

Re: Quick-Dry-Cafe February 2013

It is amazing how many folks are from or were from Jersey...Bob was...and had an undying love of scrapple...shudder......but no matter how long he lived in the south, would NOT eat grits, which I love. Lots of "used to live in Ohioans" as well, like me...haha!

A brisk 30° this morning....brrrr!

Re: Quick-Dry-Cafe February 2013

Hi Gang

Those helmet lights are very impressive Howard - WOW!

Just had the tree surgeon here and he's coming to cut the Euc. down and cart the debris away next Thursday.
We have more work for him too, a large beech tree which cuts a lot of light from neighbouring properties - not to mention bringing evenings earlier for us because of the shadow it creates. However, we have to contact the council in case there's a TPO on it
If you don't have those conditions in the States, it's a Tree Preservation Order.
So just hoping there are no 'tree huggers' around here!

Much as we love trees, in gardens the big ones can be a BIG nuisance.

Howard...that art project looks fascinating! How does he preserve it when it's done? I was surprised at some of the negative responses in the comment section...

Susan......I think it's your upbringing on your food likes and dislikes......I spent a lot of time in the service in GA and three of my children went to school in the South, but I never could develop a 'taste' for grits, but love the Northern version, 'Cream of Wheat'.......

Re: Quick-Dry-Cafe February 2013

Howard, glad you are biking! Bet it feels good!
Maureen, so sorry about your tree. Bet it will be a strange backyard for while.
Cream of Wheat with cocoa powder mixed in--that's what my mom did for me. (even tho there was the choco version, that would mean buying something extra, when you could make it yourself.)

I have my 1st official art show tonight at an official art gallery! (Though I am not the main attraction---I'm the side show! ) Trying not to be excited!

It was -19f yesterday morning (not including windchill) Is warming up today. Suppose to be in the 30s tomorrow or Sunday. Will be a real treat!

Re: Quick-Dry-Cafe February 2013

Ruth, congratulations on your show. No matter the size it is exposure.

Maureen, we have similar regulations here in some states. We can't cut down ancient oak trees. Have to get special permission. Sorry to hear that the whole tree must be removed. Been considering ridding the yard of the lady palm. They are very aggressive and invasive. Didn't realize that when I planted them. May replace with a dwarf blue silver dollar eucalyptus. Would be pleasant against the gray of the house. Plant around the base with decorative plants.

Thought I would be a slug today but it turns out I am not. Went to the market, the whole food store, Michael's, Best Buy, Sports Authority, then the Fresh Market. Came home for lunch

No bike ride today. Have to skip a day now and again to allow muscles time to pull it together.

Painted a bit this morning and am getting ready to head back out there. I just let layers dry a bit before going on.

Grits are from corn... you know, like hominy grits, do you like hominy? Baked cheese grits are yummy!!!

Maureen we have all kinds of restrictions on trees, some depending on where your live. Where we lived in Georgia it depended on the circumference of the tree unless it was infected by a bug or something. We had to have a couple pine trees cut down that were prohibited from cutting because of the circumference (they were big), except they ended up with pine borers... alive one day, dead the next. Those pine borers don't mess around and actually I was sad to see the trees go. Here in Florida and the county we live in, some trees are also protected if they are a certain size. Others are considered a nuisance or non-native.

Howard I think it is interesting how or what made people move. We were transferred by Jon's company, otherwise we would probably still be in Ohio. I liked it though. It was interesting living in all the different places and I like the south. We left our family behind though.

Good luck on your show Ruth.

Re: Quick-Dry-Cafe February 2013

Ohio must be the central vortex of America. I have a son who's an Air Force officer living in Ohio while he works on his PhD in physics at the Air Force Institute of Technology in Dayton.

I don't think he eats grits, though. Sounds like something that would stop a person up.

Re: Quick-Dry-Cafe February 2013

Hominy is dried corn soaked in a lye solution. Frequently used in southern and Mexican dishes. You might have had it and not realized.

Did work in the studio today and enjoyed it. A shame so much else got in the way.

Lots of yard work done today.

Got a new light for my bike today, LED color changer and it is on the spokes. I think I am trying to find something every day that makes me smile, or, just having a second childhood.

Hope everybody had a great day.
