Broken Tree On Linwood

Its been several weeks since the tree fell down on the property down the street from us. The property is the back of the fairfaxes parking lot. Its annoying because no one ever shovels it, or cleans the garbage piles from it and now the tree. I wonder how long it will take.

My Latest Flavor Bowl - Rare Tuna Style

I was at premier on Delaware picking up more Bubbies mochi ice cream treats when I saw they had sashimi grade tuna on sale at a great price. I got this very filling portion at the very reasonable price for $5.48. It was a little more than 1/2lb. I paired it with mung bean noodles cooked with chopped mushrooms and seasoned with sesame oil on the bottom. Then a layer of chopped celery, grated carrot, steamed escarole, asparagus, and sauteed shallots. I cooked the thick tuna in long blocks real quick on each side and then sliced those blocks up further after cooking. Here is the final product As for the bubbies mochi icecream, this time I got tiramisu and chocolate peanut butter.

It seems so scary watching it rush in. I think I would have had a heart attack viewing it from the filming perspective. I wonder if those people got down safely or not? The real crazy part is the comments.

I guess these people are prisoners for a reason but it seems like the beginning of something bad. Starting next week, advertisements will begin to run at the Erie County Holding Center in Buffalo. Interspersed will be some "need-to-know" information, in case this is your first time in lock-up. The screens will run relevant information, such as the rules and regulations of the holding centre, while also airing public-service announcements for â€œsocially responsible issues and county servicesâ€ such as addiction rehabilitation. It will also air advertisements, most notably for defence attorneys and bail bondsmen. since the audience will likely be looking for some help in that field.... However, the ads will not be limited to just services targeted to those in jail, Diina said. â€œEventually, most of these people get out. So they do represent the future of the marketplace,â€ he said. The crazy part is the payoff is so litte. The advertising at Erie County Holding Center could bring in more than$10,000 a year. Half of the spots already have been sold.

I guess any profit made is good in Buffalo desperate financial situation but it seems like such an insignificant amount in the budget of Erie County. Like that could have saved that much not running generators 24/7 for like 5 months on my corner when they were doing road construction.

The worst vacation ever - rant

So my final two vacation days to burn up. Just before I took them I got a huge project to deal with at work for thursday. I am beyond capacity at this point and it doesn't seem to get any better.

I worked on it a bunch this weekend and then last night:
a. The windows XP machine I needed for testing had some sort of disk failure.
b. I decided to compile gnome-shell from scratch to see the latest version - which ended up taking forever.
c. I got a freakin cold. I can't believe I am sick now.

So today I spent the whole day with full-on cold, mostly napping. I am convinced it has to do with my new tooth crown - which I hate as it tastes like metal. If I realized porcelain meant, porcelain fused to cheap metal like nickel - I would have just gotten a gold tooth. Now its kind of too late. To get it off would probably make me lose my whole tooth and a good chunk of change.

Monster Basra Vs Prickly Pear

He really goes nuts for prickly pears. I hate them because they have those prickly splinters all over the outside. I started burning then off over a gas flame but now I invariably burn myself in additional to still getting the splinters.

Times Beach Freezing Day

It was so cold at Times Beach today. The wind was frostly but at least the sun was out. Almost all of the ice gone or paper thin translucent there. We had fun smashing some remaining parts.

Church Of The Ascension Driveway Drama Cont.

I can't believe this is still going on. All I want is for them to not drive on my property or to block my in the driveway.

Today I get a letter from their lawyer asking us to forward the letter to our lawyer. He didn't even get Terry's name right.

I love how it mentions "their driveway." It seems simple to me. Here is the property map. Notice their "driveway" is only 3.5 feet. Not wide enough for a car. Since then they have slowly added more stones to their grass, and just parked on the grass until it became drivewayish, but the skirt remains the same size.

When the previous owner bought the house in 2001, the church had an agreement with the new owner of the house to allow the church unobstructed access to the driveway to "provide ingress and egress from linwood avenue to the grantors remaining property." This makes it clear that their part of the skirt was not large enough.

The kicker is that "the reservation of rights shall not be covenant that runs with the land and does not bind all successors, heirs or assigns of grantee."

Well thats me. I bought the house from the guy with 2001 agreement in 2006. At that point there was no agreement, nor do I permit them to use my land or driveway for access. It would have been a different story if the people were not so rude and obnoxious, and did not do things like drive on my lawn, block me in, scream at me telling me they went have been here longer than I have, etc.

Bubbies Litchi Icecream Dessert

(E:lilho) bought these delicious litchi mochi ice cream treats for (e:matthew) for his birthday but he didn't like them for some reason. So I tried one and to me, they are the tastiest dessert ever.

The outside is a sweet chewy mochi with litchi ice cream inside. We got them at premier on Delaware and there are a bunch of other flavors.
