Doxies at the NC Shelter

All right ya'll. The two 2 yr old black/tan boys were abandoned in the parking lot at KMART.
The three were orphaned when their elderly "mommy" died last year.
7 year old male (blond) 2 year old male (red) 2 year old female (black/tan).
They are all waiting patiently at Sammies Friends shelter for their new family. Is it you?????

Did you know the General Store is now serving breakfast and lunch. They even have "country benedict" and all very well priced. Let me know what you think if you get there before me. The womens club is going on 2/5/11 at 9am if you want to join them. Pam Herrenkohl said they have a wonderful coffee bar too. About time! I'll check it out and let you know (I'm also a coffee snob)
I was just informed that someone saw a bear drinking out of the watering hole in front of my house at 9pm the other night, and he promptly ran across BQH into the woods. Be careful out there. It wouldn't be fun for you or the bear to collide while doing even the speed limit (which no one does) past our house.
SUNDAY MORNING and we got 1" of the white stuff overnight. Beautiful day, and the hill is clear. Plow already cleared most of our streets. Supposed to be sunny again tomorrow.

Confessions of a Pizza Snob

Yes, my name is Denise, and I am a Pizza snob. I have to taste the pizza in every city in every country I visit. Chicago, deep dish, great fillings, but too much crust. LA, "Pizza Kitchen" type stuff, well, really, is that pizza? Save the Thai Chicken for, well, Thai Chicken dishes. Also, do not dump a salad on top of my pizza, it's disturbing. Middle of the US, say, Nebraska or Iowa, PLEASSSE, do you not own herbs? By the way Iowa, that's not crust, it's bread. What is that stuff you are calling cheese????? Mexico, guys, you just got it all wrong. San Francisco, your heart is in it, especially in little Italy section, but, still, why are you so in love with big crust? Just cause you make the best sour dough bread doesn't mean you should put it under a pizza. Jupiter Pizza in Berkeley, great, if you like that gourmet twist, like pear and gorgonzola, served with root beer flavored beer, which I do on occasion. The crust is perfect though. I even had pizza in Hoi An, a little village in central Viet Nam, could not pass up the opportunity. I must say, not bad, but I think because there are so many Euorpean's living there, and they demand good homeland food. Now, New York. Perfection. Skinny oily crust, a perfect smear of paste, properly seasoned, and a grating of really creamy cheese, perfectly melted, and pepperoni to die for. Which brings me to the reason I am writing this. I haven't had what I consider really good pizza in Nevada County in 10 years, since Cowboy Pizza on Spring St. closed their doors. I've had what other people say is good, or even great (Franks, Northridge) however it's just not to my snobby authentic pizza standards. However, went to Goomba's on Colfax Hwy. across from Memorial Park Friday night, and had a GREAT NEW YORK STYLE PEPPERONI PIZZA. While the crust could have been even a little thinner, it was still lovely. The sauce was perfect, the cheese creamy, and the pepperoni nice and salty and crunchy. THANK YOU GOOMBA'S. By the way, their beef and pepper sandwich is as good as any I've had in Chicago. Hmmm, happy.
