Would You Drive it? #6

Norm is thinking most of you would, if you could afford it. Well, that's Norm's position at least. One can get a tax break on buying a new one, but it will still approach 20K in cost. They get about 55 mpg, and are quite nice looking. Well done, Toyota!!

Norm's World #32

Ahhhhh, old faithful. Norm's embattered gas grill. While visiting some local friends, it became obvious to Norm that he has the oldest grill around. Most of the cool crowd has eleborate, stainless steel models that can cook an entire slab of beef. Norm's model has two modes of operation. On. And off.

How is everybody's summer going?!

Would You Drive It? #5

Norm thinks it's like a really hot, geeky librarian. Once you climb inside, there's no turning back.

Norm's World #31

Well Norm finally conquered one of his most profound culinary fears. The potato salad. Why is this such a problem? Much of Norm's confusion can be with the cooking of the spuds. He has never been very good at it. The mighty potato is a far more sensitive item than most would suspect. It is not difficult to ruin our cherished tubers. Too much heat, too fast, will lessen the flavor.

But Norm is happy his first batch was a hit. Final formula used only half a cup of mayo. And crumbled bacon and sun dried tomatoes really pushed it over the top.
