Bar Of Soap?

What should not come to a surprise to anyone is that former Atlanta Falcons QB, Michael Vick, has agreed to cop a plea in his federal dog fighting/animal cruelty… case. Let’s see: co-defendants roll over and cop pleas, grand jury was moving toward additional charges, evidence appeared insurmountable, and the gubbermint has something like a 95% success rate inconvicting folks of this crime. I wonder if fellow prisoners will treat him like a celeb or like a child molestor?

Homesick Texan To The Rescue!

The Homesick Texan has this uncomfortable habit of reminding of all the goodness around me that I seem to ignore. In her latest post, she talks about the Mexican Corn available at stands in front of Fiesta supermarkets. Hell, Houston is the HOME of Fiesta and there are a bajillion of them. So I got me some this weekend while I was watching all the folks preparing for the hurricane that might not actually show up. Yummy. For those of you who do not have access to said vendors of corn goodness, here’s her recipe:

Mexican corn on the cob
Ingredients:
4 cobs of corn
2 tablespoons of butter
4 tablespoons of mayonnaise
4 lime wedges
1/2 cup of cotija cheese, crumbled
Cayenne to taste

Method:
In an oven heated at 350, cook corn in husk for 25 minutes. After taking corn out of oven, let it cool for 5 minutes, and then pull husk layers down, leaving them attached to the base of the cob, which can act as a handle. If you want to blacken you corn, you can either put it under the broiler for five minutes on each side or hold it over your stove’s gas burner. Be careful to keep the husk away from the flames! While warm, spread 1/2 tablespoon of butter and 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise all over the cob. Take 1/8 cup of cheese, and sprinkle it on cob, then sprinkle on some cayenne pepper and squirt the lime over the cob.
Makes 4 servings.

Hold Please…

A customer trying to call British telecoms operator BT Group was left hanging on the telephone for a total of 20 hours, The Times newspaper reported on Saturday. If I was a betting man, I would have wagered that he was on hold with Symantec… Oh well. I guess the only question is: why would somebody stick with it for 20 hours?
