I’m kind of ticked that Food Network is shuffling their lineup around moving Emeril back to Alton Brown’s spot at 6pm CST. Yes, I know that’s why they invented DVRs, but we had actually fallen into this dynamic in our family where we made sure to get everything done before Alton came on; we’d gather round the TV just like my when I was a kid. Back to reality.
There’s a new ice cream shop in Bellevue: 32 Scoops, in the Kroger Shopping Center on Hwy 70. I give it two scoops up! I had something called “Gold Mine”, and it was a creamy, caramel-ly, heavenly concoction. Everyone else in the family loved theirs as well. As an aside, some of you long-time Bellevue folks might remember that it is sitting at the site that was Persnickety’s Ice Cream in the 80’s (boy, do I miss THAT place!)
Photos of the show last Saturday at TBG are up at my Flikr page. All of them were taken by Trillian, and most of them are at a strange angle. But, we had a great time, and hopefully the photos convey that.
I’m interested in seeing the new TNT show “Saving Grace“. It could be a very sobering view of fall and redemption, or it could be fluff, it could be affirming, or it could be blasphemous. It’s going to be worth taking the chance, I think.
I have Nascar RaceView. You could only have this type of technology with NASCAR, and it has got to be the most fun way to watch a race. Listening to the driver talk to his crew chief, and watching the entire race from the point of view of a single driver teaches you more about the sport than you could ever learn any other way. I can tell you one thing I learned from the New Hampshire race last week: Sterling Marlin doesn’t care too much for Juan Pablo Montoya. He also knows a few choice words. That was fun to listen to.
