No.  The plates featured cod (or fried fish), rice, and vegetables.  I did get some baklava.  I have been to some festivals where they have the pasta frola with apricot filling, but it was not here tonight.  I'm a big fan of Greek desserts.

I had figured since the 25th of March was last week  that fried Cod (Bakaliaros) would be served with skordalia.  Traditional food that is eaten on this day.  

1. Evangelismos

2. Greek Independence FREEDOM Day   

(everybody including us Greeks say independence day...Greeks and Greece were ALWAYS independent.  As a people we was always infighting with each other...but were ALWAYS independent.  We fought for our FREEDOM against the Ottoman Empire...)

Baklava, galaktoboureko.   Cant go wrong.    

 

A little token of appreciation of you and your Italian backround! 

I feel like we could be bestest of friends if we ever met in real life! 

Bromance in effect I think!

If one person tailgates you, they’re a douchebag. If a whole line of cars is tailgating you, you’re the douchebag.

This is so true!!!

It wasn't, was at 1/8th tank, but removed/retightened anyway.
Light illuminated briefly upon start, then went out. About 20 min ride home.

Dealer doesn't want it, it's too old to even sell to a wholesaler, so they'd basically give me scrap value for it (maybe around $600). I'm going to sell it privately, it's worth about $7500 I think. Not a bad investment- I paid $24K and drove it 158,000 miles (it has 204K on it- bought it at 46K). I have a handful of folk that have expressed interest.

At some point it's going to start demanding money, and believe it or not, I don't have the garage space to store the GMC over the winter (even with 6 bays here). 😳
May not matter; the Silverado doesn't fit thru my garage doors even with the mirrors folded. GMC is 1.5" WIDER, but not sure how the totally different mirrors fold on it yet. Silverado has power-extendable towing mirrors.

Possible any oxygen sensor on your truck or other electric sensor that could be getting flakey?

Just in the last couple of weeks, one of the oxygen sensors on the SS causes the light to trip, read the computer and it is the same sensor, works, then does not, then works. Gonna plan to replace them as I am at 160K miles now.

^Salt Fork—about 20 miles from my family farm.  Used to go there often as a kid. Pretty area.  

It was epic hiking, we clocked just over 13 miles, 32,000 steps.

Yeah, that really sucks. One of the worst part of being a dad is how irresponsible my son is as a 27 year old on the street.

My contribution to Easter Dinner. My entire pod is fully vaccinated now so we were able to gather for the first time in a year.A0DE9FC9-4F45-425B-967A-BAE2DCD93AAB.jpeg

Strawberry cheesecake, everything is homemade.

Looks fantastic.

It is going to be challenging to go through the check-out at the supermarket in the next few weeks with all that DEEPLY DISCOUNTED Easter chocolate in close proximity.

Except that if I gain more gut, it will make it harder to work with my hand tools, hike, have sex, ride a motorcycle, and fit my work uniforms. I have a strong disincentive to avoid the stuff.
