David is thinking about the meat faerie

A few little random things.

The new Archie McPhee store opens tomorrow! It is called More Archie McPhee and will have bigger items and things for rent. Stop by and check it out. The staff has been working extra hard to get it ready and it is truly a sight to behold.

Of course, my favorite is Captain Archie, the lovable salty old sea captain who will be there to tell your fortune. I wrote most of what he says and it still makes me laugh. That either means it's funny or I'm a sad, broken man clinging to what little pleasure my life brings me... I choose to believe that it's funny!

I went bowling last night at Sunset Bowl and I won two bananas, an apple, a sweet onion and a pound of frozen shredded BBQ beef. cukebrian had a great night.

Tonight is the staff party to celebrate the new store space and as part of the celebration we booked a barbershop quartet called the Sea Sharps to perform. Well, I got an email from the editor of the Seattle barbershop quartet newsletter asking if he could attend with a photographer. We've been promised the front page... This could be our big break!

I received a copy of Meat Processing magazine the industry insider magazine for meat and poultry processing operations. There is an ad for a machine called the “Flattenmatic” that flattens the meat of your choice with a series of 10 steel rollers. The before and after pictures of unflattened and flattened meat are amazing. It can reduce thickness by 90%. This looks exactly like a machine from a Bugs Bunny or Road Runner cartoon. It is, however, not produced by Acme.
