by the way

we are rapidly approaching the fourth of july weekend. for us this a weekend heavy of outdoor dining. one of our favorite summertime snacks is stuffed jalapenos - making them is a snap. you just need three ingredients nice big jalapeno peppers, cream cheese, and bacon. of course you also need a grill and some long handled tongs.

some of you may be heading to the beach this weekend. if you going to the beach and have certain equipment, make sure you take precautions and don't end up like the poor bloke in this newspaper clipping. OUCH!


by the way by the red hot chili peppers

Yummy. I love the dog's face as though he's trying to will the food to leap off the grill and into his mouth. (Apologies if it's a she dog).

I'm as interested as that cute dog is in the bacon-wrapped chili peppers!

As for the naked swimmer, that's one of the risks one takes in shedding one's Speedo.

What a perfectly caught moment! (I meant in the photograph, of course, but it occurs to me now it also unfortunately fits the beach story chair - poor fellow!)

oh phew - I was reading quickly. At first I wasn't too sure what had been cut up - the chair or the the man's standard options.

The new blog is in start-up phase, petite souris. You'll find me at

if you'll excuse me, I'll just grab one of those yummy peppers and run - should be great with a cold Grimbergen :-)

they could have just used ice cubes--no need to wreck a chair!

As a skeptical journalist, I don't believe that newspaper story for a second.

I'm with Steve-- we may need photographic proof along with reliable eyewitness testimony.

dd- it's a she dog, but that's cool, I have a tendency to assign gender whereas dogs are boys and cats are girls - totally crazy, but hey....

barbara - that's dixie - me grandpup she is a total love bug!!

cbv- tee hee....

cher (aka rlb)- congrats - it's on the roll!!

eddie - you are so smart for a wee lad!

steve & ched - I'm with you guys, but it was FUNNY! good to leave behind literalism and seriousness, n'est-ce pas?

OMG - that story about the man and his balls is hilarious and frightening at the same time! Yikes!!

LOVE the first pic. It's the food chain in action. Also love the instructional slide show as well as the Red Hot Chili Peppers - great band.

Happy 4th to you!! Enjoy your outdoor dining!
