. . . . . . This one was a BOMB!
. . Where the heck did this day go? Now that golf courses are opening up for the 2007 season in my area, the rain simply will NOT STOP. There are actually flood watches in effect for South MN. It's like going to pick up your new custom clubs, and finding that the building burnt to the ground.
The picture above was taken on one of the most perfect evenings I've ever witnessed; 72 degrees, no wind, clear skies, and I had the course to myself. One of those nights that just go by too quickly, yet leave a permanent impression. If I was a time traveler - I would go back to this "perfect" speed 18. After that, I would go back to my Star Search appearance....(which I lost, but met BIG ED McMAHON)

. . . . . . This one was a BOMB!
Thursday, March 29, 2007
You know, people are always writing me and saying, "Hey Speedcat, If you are such a great chef, where are all of the cooking specials on your site? We like all of your golf stuff, but we don't think about course management 24-7 like you. What's up, man?"
Well...... today is your lucky day, so mark this one on your calendar of BIG TIME EVENTS. Here goes, so pay attention - other "wise", you will get an F in my cooking class.
Garbage Can Cajun` Style Ham
First, go buy a small metal garbage can. (Rubbermaid melts, and causes Global Warming.) Fill the can half way with a liquid mixture of tobasco, Boones Farm Raspberry Wine, and Heavy Cream. Let stand for 1 minute.
Next, drill holes in your ham of choice with any electric gun. (I prefer Makita, and like to say it......Mah Keee Tah!!!!!) The holes should be one inch apart.
You can now drop the hog in the bucket; metal, as shown above.
Turn your oven on @ 500 degrees, and remove the rack. The rack is there for stupid people anyway! Set your full pork-can in the center of the oven and close the door. Don't forget this step, or you will be waiting for dinner all day, and that just makes for really angry guests. They are a dangerous entity, as I found out on March 10th.
After cooking for 2 hours, the "liquid mixture" will have boiled off, and become a blackened paste. Yes, this is how cajun` "happens".
Before serving, refill the holes, now black, with crushed red peppers and jalapenos.
There you have it!
If you would like your recipes posted here at Speedcat.com, drop me a line, and I'll get her done.
Enjoy your meal, and don't forget to turn off the oven.
From PTR: "Possum Roast" recipe.....
Boil possum for 30 min. Peal & Eat!!
Another from PTR: "Tunafish Toast" recipe.....
One can cream of mushroom- One can Tuna- One can of early peas- One bag of bread.
Mix the soup, tuna, and peas in a large bowl; then microwave on high for 2 minutes and mix well. Place two slices of bread in the toaster and toast to your own preference.Slap them two slices of toat on the plate an bath liberally in the tuna/soup base. While consuming the two slather pieces of toast, place tow additional slices of bread into the toaster. Continue this process until the entire loaf is gone.

YouTube, youtube......yadda yadda yadda utoobi..........my computer is too slow. I don't even try! You can watch this Viral Video on your own "BAD" machine though. This is from my vacation in Santiago, and I think you will really like it! The part where my bathing trunks fall off in the ocean under-current is funny. My dog "Mardy" is also here bitting a local. GOOD BOY MARDY :-)

Look again bushman, (or birdwoman). >>> Silly, aye?? / (If you got this one right on the first try, you are a super-human genius.)
Congratulations, Pep ea`

barstowmama: What pain is beauty? The Pa Dong...#links
Check this out! Hi barstow mamma
1. Peat Bog - a wet spongy ground of decomposing vegetation; has poorer drainage than a swamp; soil is unfit for cultivation, but it can be cut and dried - and used for fuel in cars and chainsaws.
I have always loved Peat Bog, I don't know why.......you can view Peat Bog on your way to Baudett MN. Someday, I wish to have a back yard comprised of beautifull lusious green Peat Bog! Then, I will truly be a happy man.
Synonyms: bog >>>>Bog habitats: Bogs are challenging environments for plant life because they are low in nutrients and very acidic. Carnivorous plants have adapted to these conditions by using insects as a nutrient source. The high acidity of bogs and the absorption of water by sphagnum moss reduce the amount of water available for plants. Some bog plants, such as the Hollydale Leatherleaf, have waxy leaves to help retain moisture. Bogs also offer a unique environment for animals. For instance, English blogs give a home to the blog-hopper beetle and a yellow fly called the Hairy Canary. >> (I also need to get a Hairy Canary)
Thanks for all the time!......Speedcat Hollydale

The King of Rock & Roll took the stage tonight. Speedcat Rockindale sang his new song "Yelabal" to an eager audience. Show host Paula Abdul started to weep as Speedy took the stage. (They were rumored to have a short love affair in the 80's)
Simon Cowell said, "That was your strongest performance ever.......I like you Speedcat!"
Ratings were the highest ever for the Pop Music Talent Show. I would bet on a encore song in the near future.

The Glass Bridge Opens today.
Wednesday the first golf course in my area plans to open. This is wildly ironic, as I started a count-down to golf 2007 with the help of my good friends at Clock Link that predicted this very day months ago. How did I know? Good question. Truth be known - I just guessed. Of "course", I will be playing hooky from work (and why not, I do not live for the boss)........unless he is reading this. In that case, I'm really sick. see comments for "Thinking with the Omega 3 Trans Fatty Acids"
I wonder how my new putter will perform? I never could drain the 6 footers!
Other Golf News: This weekend's CA Championship at Doral Golf Resort & Spa has an "exclusive" field. A World Golf Championships tourney, this event eases Doral's pain of losing the Ford Championship. It's a limited-field tournament, bringing together 74 of the top golfers across the globe.

What can you do to change this? Simple: quit your job.
I can eat samples from the supermarket, live on a boat......(a Lund Alumicraft with a canopy), and ride a bike or horse. Yes, a horse will cost me, but I will have a small nest egg from selling everything in my house! I will blog from the library, and golf in the park. Free time galore; I will then, and only then, truly be "KING" of my domain.
Wait a minute - golf in the park sounds dumb too. I guess I'll just go to work. Phtttpta
Meet to eat meat!
We are meeting P. Ditty Ross & his woman at the buffet. It will be a delayed Birthing Day feast for Chi Girl. (baby comes too)
This is the plan......3 plates of meat, then 3 desserts. Of couse, milk, coffee, and sooooda to wash er` down.
"7000" calories? I have strechy pants, dog. Boooya!
Sundays, they are the best!

St. Patrick's Day = Get drunk. A nice wholesome family festivous. Wear green - drink green - turn green. Triple play with a sacrifice shot to right field! Is this a silly holiday or what? I vote to abolish the entire thing and switch to "Speedcat Awareness Day" Did you know that for every "one" Speedcat you see, five others are digging up your sandbox? Stop the madness, start the day! Carpe Diem!
Dem dern cats is drunk again Patty.....
After working in Rochester MN, I came home to the baby. She is with us for an overnight.
She is just starting to crawl, so much attention is required. Food? Babies love ground up green beans! How odd......I do not like ground up greenie beanie.
<<In this picture, she is 3 months. Babies now 9 months
These are the "BEST" things to do if you are 9 months old
- Yelling / Laughing
- "Head tilter game": you tilt, she tilt; you tilt, she tilt. I can do this for 5 minutes. Babies can tilt for an hour.
- Back to the Ground Green Bean, babies love to eat.
- Grabbing Grampa Paddy's glasses (dangerous!)
- Pooping and farting.......you know, this is on MY "best" list too. :-)
- Watching animals. I live at the petting zoo. No, I'm not kidding.
- Listening to music. EVERY SONG IS NEW! (babies like light classical )
- Putting anything in mouth. (refer back to crawling)
- Being the cutest and happiest baby in Hollydale. This I know for sure.
