Do you get to walk around the historic houses and grounds? Or is it just a drive by? 

Over here we have the National Trust which maintains hundreds of places of interest such as castles, ancient monuments and historic homes and grounds, as well as parks, woodlands and coastal paths.

We are just doing a drive by at this time. I personally will not go indoors with a group of people. My call. Maybe later when things get better.  If it was just the boss and I, we might pay a visit inside. I feel riding my motorcycle in the wind, is not only safe but mentally helpful.

UK Prime minister has just announced a Full Lockdown until February 15th at the earliest.

A record 80,000 positive cases for covid19 on December 29th.

Omg 80k for one day...so sad in so many ways.   Hope and pray these vaccines work.

It grows back. Trust me. We never took ours to the groomers. They had plenty of marginal haircuts over the years.

 

 

I trimmed Bell back in late April. Not perfect, but not bad

I learned to ski in the Catskills.  It was perfect for a day trip. Killington also became my preferred resort for long weekends trips or even week long trips, My friends would hit Bear Mountain early while I studied the trail map to see how far I could ski without having to get on a chair lift, hence a lot of meandering trails between the various peaks.  Even though we rented a condo, we'd often be out eating at the Wobbly Barn or Casey's Caboose.

You might be surprised. When I first got married and bought a house, money was tight so I stopped skiing for 5-6 years. When I went back, it was like riding a bicycle. Of course, that's was when I was still in my 30's. 😏

 

Forgot all about the Wobbly Barn.  Great place.  We definitely spent a few nights there.  I'd love to think that strapping on a pair of skis would be just like riding a bicycle, but trying again after 5-6 years in your 30s is a little different than trying again after 25+ years at 59 with lower back and knee pain (which was likely in large part due to mogul skiing).  I think I've permanently traded ski trips for cruises.

I'm enjoying cooking

 

I enjoy it occasionally, but as a fun thing to do rather than a daily chore.  Maybe that will be different with an Egg. 😁  My wife does most of the cooking.  When she says that we're going out or ordering take out, I say "yes ma'am".

I've started to wear 2 masks when I absolutely have to go shopping for groceries/meds/vegetables/etc. -- one from cloth which fits tight, and the blue one on top of it....

For christmas my SIL, ICU Charge Nurse, gave all of us the full face shields she wears at hospital.  I wear that with my 3 layer face masks whenever I must go to food store.  Our freezer is well stocked with lots of stuff from omaha steaks and local fish market. 

 I'm back to working at home after a couple people in my office tested positive last week.  

It is said too many people become lax with washing hands, etc.

I carry in my purse medical grade wipes that Erics transplant doctor had prescribed a couple years ago.   I always wipe down shopping cart.  Nothing new to me, I have done this for a couple years now.   

The prescription We get a box of 1000 wipes delivered every 90 days.   Never use that many so I gave out a bunch to family, friends and neighbors.  

This is not the time to let our guard down.   I'm hoping we see proof the vaccines are working in coming months.

Take Care!!

Our XL is in storage and right now the large is stuck in the garage. Need to make room to move it out for a cook.  I look forward to cooking up a good steak.

Looks like a lot of fun and a great way to get some fresh air.  Seeing "DeLand" reminded my of the Bob and Tom Show.  Anyone else know what I'm talking about?

Not sure about the Bob and Tom Show but Deland is a nice old college town (Stetson).  Beautiful oak lined roads and a neat old downtown. Just don’t blink or you will miss it.  The brick streets are a little bumpy on the motorcycle.

I don't remember Tom's link to DeLand (he may have had a DJ job in South Florida when he was younger?) but they had a running gag anytime there was a news report involving DeLand.  Why do they call it DeLand?  Because it's by DeSea.

I have one. Do you cook it whole, or slice into lollipops

Sear on BGE or in a grill pan?

 

You want high heat for the sear.  BGE would work well but seems like a lot of time/effort to get it up to heat for just a couple of minutes.  

 

Edit: We usually use a pan with butter for our steak sears but will use the gas grill if we want grill marks

Agree, that is the way I did my NY eve filet.  Really hot grill pan.  Although, can’t you do the BGE for a hot sear?
