stuff you find surfing, and reading your mail

well, i hope everyone had a safe and sane 4th. we celebrated on the 3rd, and it was a crowd pleasing winner. i'm not going to go into all of the details just yet, but my hair still hurts.
let's see. started the day with a whole copper river sockeye salmon in the smoker at 1100, which required a sierra pale ale. well, actually it required two, because that' some hot, thirsty work.
then i grilled 4 london broil steaks, and about 10 pounds of tri-tip. and a couple of eggplants, a bunch of red peppers, a passel of squash, and sauted up about 5 pounds of mushrooms and onions/garlic. which required a couple more beers, and several glasses of mango ice "tea" if you know what i mean. i guess that would be a tropical russian ice tea?
and then, of course as the guests arrived, we started cracking the vino. with a total of 12 adults, 3 or 4 who didn't imbibe, we killed the most of a case of beer, 10 bottles of wine, including 2 of champagne, a bottle of port, and an entire bottle of rum making mohitos!!
today was a recovery day.
so anyway, i was surfing following the links provided in a couple of emails, and found the following watercolor:

i don't know if you have ever tried to do watercolor painting before, but it's a hell of a lot harder to make it look good than you think.

Sorry about your hair, dude, but of course you need to protect yourself from those flames. Well done, I say! At least you're not blogging about having shot your eye out with a mortar while under the influence. That would be bad.

Sounds like a great party! My head hurts just thinking about it.

I have a question. I have tried everything to make grilled london broil edible from marinating the s**t out of it overnight, slow cooking on the grill, etc, and though the flavor is good, the meat is tougher than old shoe leather. How do you get yours edible?
